My Orthodontist put those on me today. I now know. Guess what? It's a pain. The amount of effort it takes me to eat a cookie now is very undesirable. I have to take them off and put new ones on everyday and I have to take them off before eating then put then on afterwards, lunch at school's going to be a hassle. When I got home I decided to experiment and see if I could eat something small, like a bite-sized Teddy Grahm. This does not work. I repeat-do not try at home.
I can't fully open my mouth all the way with the rubber bands on so I had to suck on it...that's what she said...haha sorry I've been watching The Office way too much lately. Anyway it's a pain but I'm always up for a new challenge. So there's a bright side after all.
Oh and then halfway through the appointment the assistent orthodontist was taking out my old wires inorder to put new ones in. When he started to put in the news ones something was wrong with my back bracket and the wire wouldn't go in all the way, so instead of stopping and checking to see what was wrong with it he continiously pushed the wire which caused it to slip and impail the inside of my cheek. It's as fun as it sounds, trust me.
So while my cheek was being stabbed as a distraction I began thinking of the do's and don'ts of rubber band colors. Like one time I'd gone with orange because for some reason I thought it would look cute. Orange is a definete don't. After a few days it fades and makes your teeth look yellow. Green's okay but I'd stay away from black, in my opinion it makes it look like you have a bunch of oreo cookie stuck in your teeth.
That's by itself I mean, black actually looks really good when paired with other colors like green or orange. I've never actually tried red but it looks good on others. Um personally I like blues and purples they match alot of things and the colors just stand out more. I tried pink once, that wasn't too bad either.
Thats pretty much all. I had alot more to say but fortunately for you I can't remember. It'll come to me sooner or later. Oh! Just remembered...haha.
My computer's being even weirder now...if that's even possible. When I turn it on a little message pops up saying that the USB drive that I've inserted isn't recognized, but the only thing inserted in my USB drive is my internet connector. So I clicked on update and it said my version was already up to date but it still wasn't recognized which meant I wasn't getting internet.
I disconnected then re-connected it but still nothing. I did that a few more times then my computer says that I need to replace the USB drive, which really is no bueno. Finally, I disconnected it then re-connected it one last time, fingers crossed and then I heard a little beeping noise and my internet was working again!
I'd take my lovely dinosaur into the computer doctor but they're expensive and they've fixed it for me a few times already...I guess I'll just figure this one out on my own and hope nothing explodes.
Wish me luck!

Now it's getting worse. When I turn on my computer the first time it'll go straight to the blue notification-thing. Now the electronics are turning against me. Wondeful.
and I found some amazing pictures that I forgot I had! You know you're just dying to see them.
Me on the left, my little brother in the middle and my oldest on the right. Oh how I miss Idaho. Oh, that's where these photos were taken by the way. It hasn't snowed in my part of California in ages, literally. It's good to be home though. Time to go...I don't exactly know where to but that's what makes it fun.
I haven't been on any new missions lately so I think I'll just ramble for a bit.
Onto something hopefully more fascinating. Don't you hate it when you brush your teeth then have to eat?
I was getting ready to go to Burbank for my Mom's braidsmaid dress fitting so I'd brushed my teeth, had an epiphany, and all that jazz. I went through the kitchen to get to my Mom's room to get a blow dryer and on the way I grabd a cookie. Two seconds later I realized I'd just brushed my teeth and eating said cookie would mean that I'd need to brush them again. So it's now sitting in front of me tauntingly.
Oh! I saw the movie Julie & Julia yesterday, to my surprise it was pretty good. The ending was a little odd and the main character was a bit too obsessed with Julia Child but otherwise that it was cute.
Has anyone ever had Fruit Stripes? Best gum ever. The flavors are really good but it only lasts for about five minutes, the coolest part ever though is that the pictures on the wrappers are stick on tattoos! That blew my mind. Although it's an older brand that's been around for years it's still revolutionary.
Speaking of blowing minds, did you know the movie Oliver and Company is actually another version of Oliver Twist? The little orange cat's an orphan and he meets the cool, popular street dog, Dodger, and then there's big, mafia-like, cigar smoking bad guy, Mr. Sykes! It wasn't until the other day when I was watching it that I made the connection between the Disney film and the book by Dickens. In a way I'm dissapointed it took so long for me to figure that out but it's still so...enlightening.
Moving onto a new topic, everything I own keeps breaking. I kid you not, the entire front cover of my phone can come off, my ducky umbrella has a hole in it, the filter in my fish tank short-circuted although it's now been replaced, my shutters won't properly open and close so I have to pull them up completely, my alarm clock's going off at random hours-I'm pretty sure that's short-cicuted too, and last but not least, a latch on my window is broken so now I can't lock it or close it all the way.
My room's officially started a mutiny.
Well finally I have to go, off to Burbank it is.
Bye for now,

I don't know it's just odd, I mean maybe to others it may not seem like it but when I really take a step back and look at things I'm a different person than I was in the past years. I think the scariest part is how fast time's moving. Suddenly I'm in one moment and then it's gone. Just like that and I find myself in the next moment but then that one;s gone too. I guess that's the only way to really get by is taking things one moment at a time.
My brother brought something to my attention, we're all just waiting to grow up, but what happens when we finally do and the wait is over?
I don't know, I mean it's all just one big mystery. I guess that's what makes life interesting.
I'm sorry if none of this made any sense, All rational thoughts left my brain sometime after ten.
Well, good night-or more appropriately, good morning =]

I love the rain! It's such a peculiar phenomenon...gotta love big words =]
It's been pouring non-stop for the past week, it's great, the possibilities are endless in the rain, and in the sun, I guess.
Haha sorry, Ive been unusually happy lately, which is good. I think it's the rain. For a while even my happy memories made me sad but lately things are different.
School's going good, I mean numbers are making sense to me for once and there's been a lot of adventures, so I think things are really starting to look up.
The guy department isn't going very well, but it's cool, he's a good guy and sometimes I think attemtping a relationship would screw things up, it's happened before so I'm just a wee bit wary of my actions this time. I'd rather be friends than nothing at all, so for now I'm just going to chill and shut my mouth, haha lock it up and throw away the key =]
Sayings are always more fun to say when they're old.
Oh, I got caught in a monsoon the other day! It was crazy me and two of my friends were sharing one umbrella and bam! The rain starts pouring down and the wind blowing extremely hard and the umbrella's having a seizure, it was quite an interesting moment.
I have practice tomorrow at ten, well ten thirty if you want to be precise and then it's at eight thirty on Sunday.
Even if it's raining we'll still be running since we're 'distance kids'. Our coaches always treat the long distance and cross country runners differently, they think we can handle more, but they're right.
We have practice no matter what weather conditions but it's all good since it's always fun. I'll probably end up pulling an all-nighter then crashing either during or right after practice tomorrow.
Hmm, my Mom's sleeping in the room next to mine. It's my sister's room but she's out of state right now. She's talking in her sleep, my Mom, not my sister, the walls are ridiculously thin so i can pretty much hear everything that goes on throughout the entire house.
I got the Pokemon song as my ringtone, that's not very relevant, sorry but it sure is exciting.
Anyway I think I'm going to go stare at the walls or something, I'm getting kindof hungry again...I wonder where those Skittles went...
Anyway thanks for reading!
Oh, wait one more thing Mango Arizonas are amazing, I mean I knew that Sobes were pretty good but the other day I tried an Arizona and was like, 'wow!' haha sorry about my little outburst, the can's still on my desk...so yeah.
Well, good bye for now.
