the wonderful world of entertainment

so i'm sitting here watching my favorite show (degrassi). one of the main characters, spinner, has cancer. it is really hitting him hard. i started getting sad and really feeling for him. then i realized how caught up i am in a world that doesn't exist. before i was watching degrassi, i was watching a movie on disney channel about time travel and the characters were really struggling with who they were and how they got there. i was really really into it. the entertainment world does a great job of getting people caught up in things that were just thoughts in people's minds that happened to be made into images. i begin to wonder and want friends like some of the characters i see. then i remember that that will never happen because those characters are just... characters. i seriously can't get over how caught up we get in the imaginary world of television (most of it anyway).

um, prank?

on saturday while we were on ski trip, some of the girls (including me) thought up a prank to do to the guys. there wasn't much we could think of that wouldn't damage the cabins we were staying in but we finally thought up to freeze their boxers. we went back from dinner early and went in their room searching for their boxers. it didn't take us long because there were only 13 guys that went. we just had to make sure we got the right people. we folded them up and put them in the freezer. they froze together in like a box shape. it was really funny. the next night we were going to give them back all nice and frozen together but when we opened the freezer they were gone. we thought that maybe they found them and took them but they never said anything. finally about 2 hours later travis, one of our adults, came out and we were all freaking out and he was like, "oh i know what your talking about." we were excited that the boxers weren't really lost but we thought travis told them so we were kinda bummed. buuuut, he told us he thought they were left from a previous group so he hadn't said anything to the guys. he and ms. linda decided to keep them and they would hang them up during breakfast... all nice, unfroze, and dry. so that's what they did. it was all extremely lame but if the boxers hadn't been found and we had finished our plan, it might have been better. :(
so i'm home now and i'm extremely tired. i had so much fun skiing. it was a little ironic. there was no snow anywhere except on the slopes-i mean no where. we would be standing at the top of a slope and look out and see green grass. it was strange. oh and it was literally 2 degrees during the day. i think the highest it got yesterday was 9. it was so cold and windy.
i'm a little sore and like i already said, tired.

so i'm sitting in the lodge right now while almost everyone is outside night skiing. i don't think it's something i would want to do. i heard someone saying it was extremely icy and i'm not exactly the best skier in the world. i mean i don't fall but i stay on the easy slopes. and we've already skied all day today so i'm a little tired. we went to a different place this year than we usually do... i can't say it's the best-slopes or housing. we're sleeping at a church camp about 30 minutes away from the slopes so that part isn't much different. it feels like we're in the middle of nowhere.
i guess it's time to stop being anti-social.

thursday it was raining insanely hard. our principal, good 'ol mel brown, let anyone who could drive out 20 minutes early. as i was walking all the way to practically the end of the lower parking lot against the sideways rain, i stepped in about 4 puddles. i got in my car and took my shoes off (considering they were soaked!) then i began to drive off. as i drove down the narrow back road of my school, the car in front of me splashed an insanely large amount of water on my windshield along with the water splashed on me by the school bus going the opposite direction. i couldn't see anything! thankfully i got down mt. juliet road just fine but then as i turned on to lebanon road, the rain and lightning began to pick up. it was raining so hard that i could barely see the lines on the road let alone the road itself. thank goodness for the good driver in front of me with their lights on other wise i don't think i would have made it home safely. the rain began to lighten up about 2 or 3 miles further down and i made it home. everybody agreed that if we had been let out on time, the rain would not have been nearly as bad and we would have been just fine. but no, mr. brown can't predict the weather so he let us out before the extreme badness. this is also the day my sister informed me of her enlistment in the army. she was going to meet me at school to tell me but of course, i left early. she had to spend the night at a hotel and get up around 4:30am for an all-day physical. she is extremely excited that she's doing this. i'm proud of her, too. she's been trying to get in for about 8 months but her a.d.d. prevented her from doing it. the recruiter told her she had to be off her medicine for a year before she could get in. so she did. and now she's in the army. please keep her in your prayers.

and i had to get a shot yesterday. boo. :( it hurt.

new classes!

they are all really boring but really easy. maybe that's why they're boring. i don't know. but the only class that seems half way exciting is going to be my pre-calculus class... that has to say a lot about my other classes. i actually have friends in that class. my other classes just have super random people in them. i have two writing classes (which seems pointless).

i need chapstick...

snowball fight!

but how can you have a snowball fight with no snow you're asking?
well, you get flour and pantyhose/socks, and a bunch of people. you cut up the pantyhose and put flour in each cut up section then tie it up.
we all went outside to the street and had a snowball fight! it really did look like it snowed when we were finished. i looked so pale. it was fun. we went out in the woods to run from the guys and i walked right through a thorn bush. so now i have these mad scratches on my leg. but it was worth it. we had a lot of fun.
oh and i dyed my hair back to its natural color (brown). not too drastic. it was already pretty close before i dyed it.
hope everyone's new year has been good so far!

warning: this is a completely pointless post.

okay weird, random, i know.

last night i couldn't sleep. i have no idea why but i just couldn't fall asleep no matter what i tried. then my dad comes upstairs and starts talking to my sister and he's telling her how he can't sleep. and obviously she couldn't either because she was awake. then this morning i got of facebook and someone's status was that they couldn't sleep! it was so weird. nobody could sleep last night!
anyone else have this problem?
