Hmmmm ... I don't recall that scent but maybe it's because I usually stay away from the flowery scents (except for two exceptions but I can't recall the names of those right now). Is it new?
I'd gotten Sweetpea from someone. I'm thinking of giving it to my sister. It's okay but not something I'm crazy about. It's my sister's favorite scent.
My Christmas was great! There was a lot of family time. Since my family actually get along and like each other, that was fantastic.
I was sick the week BEFORE Christmas ... which made things slightly stressful. I wasn't totally finished with the shopping and there were MAJOR deadlines at work. I've got a great boss though and he said I couldn't help being sick. That's true of course. He also knows that I NEVER lie about being sick. The advantage about not lying much (or intentionally) is that people believe you when you need them to.
There's some cool urban fantasy with various gods and goddesses in them. I wish I can recall which ones has Nix in it. I vaguely remember a couple of books I'd read in 2010 ...
I liked "My Side of the Mountain". I think I read it just for fun too although I know that it's a reading assignment in some schools.
It sounds like you had a good haul :)
Which aroma did you get from Bath and Body Works?
I got a gift box from my husband's business partner's wife from there.
I love the thought but it isn't one of my more favorite scents.
Not a problem!
Shelfari is just for fun.
There aren't any deadlines or pressures.
(If there was, I'd quit. I have enough of that in Real Life.)
I loved "My Side of the Mountain"!
Are you doing it on your own or is it a reading assignment?
"A Time of Angels" sounds familiar ...
Getting people what they need is many times more important than getting them what they want :)
Oooo! The things you got for your friends sound great!
The dance sounds fun. My daughter goes to dances to hang out with her friends even though she's not had a real date yet. She has a ball (pardon the unintentional pun).
hey hey hey!
I'm chinese, born in america.
my puppy's adorable. we gave him away tho. we moved, so we didn't have time to take care of him properly. *sad..*
anyway, a lot of books i see on your shelf are ones i wanted to read, but i never get around to doing....
I think the economic times are truly stinky right now and that it'll be a tough job getting into and staying in college but it'll be well worth the effort. Keep up your grades and plan ahead with which classes (and degree of difficulty of those classes). Who knows, by the time you get to college age, everything will be better again. Think of it this way ... doing well and doing your best will be a present to your future self too. No matter what happens, you can take pride in knowing that you did your best. It'll also boost your self-esteem.
I know you are only 13 and all but have you sat down with a councelor and figured out what classes you need to take? There are the requirements for graduation, the requirements to have the classes you need to graduate with for the major of your choice, and the classes you need to take now in order to get into the high school classes of your choice.
Nag, nag, nag :D Just what you need ... an online surrogate mother.
The weird thing about the internet, though, is that some of this age difference thing isn't quite as acute. It's easier to communicate. I've got to admit that I get a little worried about it at times too. You and your sisters be careful. Try not to give away your names, addresses, etc. Be generic in your answers.
One woman I know had a stalker that actually tracked her down to the hospital where she was giving birth to her baby ... in Canada. The stalker is from New Orleans. Do you know what the stalker was angry about? A small comment (not even negative, just not positive) about a FICTIONAL character in a book. How weird is that?
I'm not Catholic but I've gone to enough confirmations to know that Thursday isn't exactly normal. On the other hand, what do I know? I'm not Catholic.
I'm WAY older than college age. Sorry. My "kids" are older than you and your sisters. They're ages 23 and 19. Both my husband and I have degrees in architecture. Our son just graduated with an engineering degree. Our daughter is still in college and just switched majors to interior design in the college of architecture.
That is pretty cool (pharmacy).
That's what my dad was in before he switched to organic chemistry.
Believe it or not, he still has a former professor that's upset with him because of that.
That professor has got to be in his 90's by now.
Keep the grades up and good luck.
You two have another sister too?
It's starting to sound a bit like my sisters and I (the age differences).
A THURSDAY night?
They don't want it to last very long or something?
Is there a conflict of schedules with other people?
That's a really awkward time for a lot of people.
Well, we may have the same interests genre-wise but I'm not so sure that some of the stuff on my shelf should be read by someone younger than 21.
So you and your sister are pretty close in age :)
I'm 2 1/2 years older than one sister and 4 1/2 years older than the youngest sister.
(Yup. I'm one of those "oldest" siblings.)
The stuff you mention on your home page as being some of your favorite things to do was also my favorites at age 13.
Well l... except for the guitar.
I was in choir from the 3rd grade to the 12th grade.
I was really upset that I couldn't get in the choir at the university.
They said that I was the best sight reader, etc. at the try-out but they had only so many openings available.
They had to give the openings to the music majors first (understandably).
I was an architecture major.
I LOVE drawing.
Faces and hands were my favorites.
I wanted to take anatomy in college so I'd understand how to draw the human body better.
Unfortunately, they only had one for pre-med students.
I wasn't that interested in the scientific (and math) parts of the class.
Nowadays, they have anatomy classes for artists too.
It's really cool.
