11:04 am - Failed Mission
I went to the Girl Scout Council office today to look for uniforms for Lindsay and Isa. Okay, brand new uniforms cost close to fifty bucks for ONE full uniform. So HTY would pay close to one hundred dollars for a costume that would only be used for one show. HTY can really afford that, NOT! Then my mom and I looked through the costume closet, it's where you can sign out uniforms and it's free, but you have to put it back,which is the thing that sucks. THEY ARE SOOOO SKANKY. And they SMELL really bad too!!! Maybe my play doesn't need to have Girl Scouts in it after all.

Random Note: I like the word "hoi polloi." It has to be one of the coolest words in the english language, except for poltroon of course. I find myself using it in everyday life,
Example: I stand out from the hoi polloi.
See, its a fun word.

One word of advice, NEVER, NEVER,NEVER sleep in that gym!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's so skanky. There's bugs everywhere, the floor is hard, and if you use a mat you slide around all night(the mats are pretty nasty too) It's just nasty.

1:54 pm - I am so bored...
I didn't do anything this week-end, I just stayed home and watched t.v. I really hate doing that. I feel so unproductive when I just watch t.v. That's not techinially true. I had to help my mom with house hold chores because she slammed her finger in the sliding door of the van. "Austin Powers:The Spy Who Shagged Me" premiered this week-end on cable so of course I spent most of my week-end alternating between that and my old friend, The Food Network. I decided that Dr. Evil and his Mini Me make that movie. I find it especially amusing when they're doing a duet and they start singing "What If God was One of Us?" Dr. Evil apparently wrote that song you know? I love Mike Meyers (is that how you spell his last name?? Oh Well.)

current mood: bored

I'm all excited, my mom and I went shopping and I got some cool crap. I no longer have to worry about dresses for this year, except of course for the graduation gown. They're so cool! I also got new sneakers, because my old ones are falling apart, along with two pairs of sandles. I like shopping with my mom when she's in a shopping mood.

This upcoming week, is the last week of Stage One. I'm kind of sad. The interns rock my ass, they're like the four coolest people I've ever met, and the kids (for the most part, when they're being good) are so cute. And it was something to do. Now it's just me, losing valuable brain cells in front of the t.v. Jesse, have you checked if you're working this upcoming week? I should've reserved your ticket, like on wednesday, I found out. Wednesday is already filled, sorry about that, so if you can come your options are Tuesday or Thursday.

Oh the extreme joy when your brother goes away. Chris is leaving for a week starting TODAY!! Julian is still in Washington, soooo...I get the house all to myself during the day. That makes me happy.

Do any of you want to see "Stage One"?? Of course it's really a novelty for the parents. Mainly so they can say "There's my kid!" But it should be really cute. I need to know soon if you guys want to come. It's next week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, at like 7:00, I think.

8:51 pm - Just Venting
Why do brothers have to be such assholes!!??!! Okay today, Chris gets a phone call from one of his friends at about 11:00. He gets dressed and leaves at about 11:12 to meet up with this friend. Okay, he knows very well that I like to leave the house by 11:50, or a little there after. Usually I like to leave by 11:55 AT THE LATEST. He knows this, he also knows that I freak out easily if I leave a little late (mostly because I'm bad at judging how it will affect the transit to where it is I'm going, or how little it will affect it.) I especially wanted to be on time to Stage One today because there was the other intern that works with Group One wasn't there. It gets to 11:55 and Chris isn't here! I'm about to call his cell phone when i realize that he left it at home. Smart, yeah?? So my mind starts running wild with thoughts ranging from, I'm gonna kill him, to what if he had car trouble and is stuck somewhere...He shows up at 12:00 with a large coke in hand like nothing had happened. I was on time and everything but it's just annoying. I think that my thing is more important than going to Loco Moco with a friend. And these are the important reasons why he gets a car and I don't.

It's amazing, I've made an insight into life. We never change. After working for HTY in "Stage One" I realize how much I was, and still am, like these kids. Especially like this one girl named Layla. Instead of playing with the rest of the kids, not to say she isn't social she does get along with the other kids, she decides to sit by me and read a book and i just think to myself "my god, that's what I used to do!" And she has incredible writing skills, probably because she does actually read, it just really reminded me, of me. I used to be the one that could read and write. I'm almost convinced that I'm in A.P english because, well I hope so, have strong writing skills. It was so much fun to see Layla at work today. We were doing a charactor profile(how old is your character, who's your characters' best friend, that type of stuff.)and her character is a "mysterious stranger." So there's a lot of room to have fun and I was watching how excited she was getting at all the possible things she could do. At one point I come over to her because some of the other kids were having a hard time and I just wanted to make sure that everything was okay with her and the person who was writing right next to her and she says with a big smile "Can I make my character 500 years old??" and I see what she's doing with the character profile. And then I see future Hollys' in-the-making, and it's just amazing to see that.

Does anybody wanna come with me to shop for dresses that I can take on my Alaskan Cruise trip? My mom is spazing out becuase I only have two dresses and they look the same she says. So I need to go somewhere I can get dresses.

5:59 pm - Senior Pics
Okay I went to Sterling with my mommy, a couple of weeks ago. When you walk into Sterlings store they have a whole display of the senior pictures from the Class of 1999, Hokus' class. Yeah, that kind of freaked me out a little. Then you ask if you can see the pictures of you they took and the lady dissappears in back and comes back out thirty minutes later with 45 different pictures, all of you! That whole idea scared me. Too much me!! You choose your yearbook picture there and they allow you to take home seven pictures. You choose one of those to be your picture. After a long internal struggle I have finally chosen my senior picture. It was a hard decision to make. I kept thinking "this is the picture people are going to remember you by." That's a freaky thought. But anyway they should be ready in five to six weeks so if any of you want a senior picture of yours truly just say the word and you got one.

current mood: drained

8:49 pm - STOP ME!!...i'm about to strangle one of my students.
I'm about to strangle this one little girl in my group named Noelle. Before we go into class I take everyone to the bathroom and say "Okay everyone's going to use the restroom because you can't go during classtime." Noelle just sits there and I say "Noelle, don't you want to try use the restroom." she says "No. I don't have to go." Fine. We get to class and people are sharing songs they know and everything is going fine when she starts grabing her crouch and acts like she hasn't used the bathroom all day. This while a scared little girl is up in front of the class trying to sing a song she can barely remember. It really irritated me. Noelle is also the person that goes to every intern and teacher and asks questions like "Do you have a boyfried?", "How old are you?", "why don't you have a boyfriend?" and one that she has apparently asked only one other person besides me, "Do you have a baby?", "Are you going to have a baby?" She likes to start fights too. Zackie is minding his own business, which for Zackie means rolling on the floor making dog noises, and she starts a fight with him! "Don't make dog noises Zackie! ZACKIE DON"T MAKE DOG NOISES!! Miss Jennifer, Zackie's making dog noises."she says. And you would think if Zackie bothers her so much then she would just find somewhere else to sit. No. Noelle manages to be in Zackies groups, be sitting next to Zackie or yelling across the room to Zackie. God help me, this kid will be smacked by the end of the program.

6:14 pm - "The Back to School Song"~just because it's too cool.
"Back to school, back to school, so I don't become a fool. My lunch packed up and my shoes tied tight. Hope I don't get in a fight. Back to School, back to school."

I had a meeting with Dan today. I now know who my director is. I don't know if you guys can put the name with the face but it's Kristy Lynn Johnson. She was the one who I was actually hoping would direct. So I'm all happy=0) Now I know my play is going to GREAT!! I was kind of worried before, I thought Dan was going to direct my play, hehe(I REALLY did not want him to direct my play. He's too weird of a director for my play. I'm convinced that he's going to direct Roberts' play, though all I know is who's directing mine.)

current mood: jubilant

5:35 pm - "Zackie"
Okay at "Stage One" there's this one little kid, six years old, insists on being called Zackie. He won't sit still, and has a self proclaimed "blatter problem". In one day I must've taken him to the bathroom, at least, six times. I've tried saying "Zackie, this is class time. You'll have to wait till break time." IT DOESN'T WORK!!!!! All he does is grab his crouch, spin around in circles on the floor and say "My weeney can't take it anymore!" He doesn't like me. He's now resorted to like totally ignoring me, unless he has to go to the bathroom of course. He like Tambrie though. He'll actually listen to her. When she says "Zackie, no talking." He stops talking! Tambrie is the other intern that's helping with Group One(there are three different groups within Stage One.) However Tambrie is too busy hanging on to the three quietest, cutest, little girls in the group. Leaving me with Zackie. It's really annoying because the situation would be so much easier if she would take over Zackie(because someone has to do it.) He'll get in less trouble, and it takes so little effort for her to get him under control. She knows this too! When he gets to be too much for me she'll do it, but not voluntarily. AAAGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

11:13 am - I'm back...
I got back Monday night from L.A. It was a pretty fun trip. I looked at three colleges(Chapman University, Whittier and the University of San Diego). I've decided that Southern California really isn't the place for me. Although i do like Chapman. A lot. I'm all confused now. Before I was so sure that i would go to Chapman. Now I'm more thinking of the University of Puget Sound(has a kick ass study abroad program and it's in tacoma, washington.) Decisions!!

2:12 pm - Girl Scout Camp
Hey! I just got back from Camp Pamalu (the Girl Scout Camp on Oahu) where I was camping with my mom and her brownie troop. THEY'RE SO CUTE!! I feel like I actually know what I'm doing around them. Although the other two people that came from my troop decided all of a sudden to be like best friends(last time i heard they HATED each other with a passion) and leave me sort of in the lurch. I hate that because i don't want to be the tagalong but then again i don't want to be by myself you know? What's more is that they made me feel like 2 feet tall(they decided short jokes were the "new thing")It turned out all good, but it was just frustrating!
