The simple things in life...

It always amazes me how the littlest things can make such a huge difference in someone's life. Whether it is a person, or a gift, or even just a smile, little things can make someones horrible day into an awesome day. In my life, many things make me happy no matter what i am sad about or mad about. I laugh randomley all the time just because i found something really random that made me laugh. One example for me is in gym. We are now playing lacrosse (which i suck at!) and i laugh all the time at it. Most of the kids in my gym class aren't good at lacrosse but we still have fun and are able to laugh everytime we dont catch the ball or if we dont throw it right or far enough.

Things like a game of lacrosse with your friends are fun and can make a difference in how the rest of your day goes. But then there are people that can make a huge impact on your day. When i lived in Virginia, my next door neighbor was a two year old (at the time, anyway). After a few weeks of living there, this blue eyed, brown haired little girl was able to change my life and the rest of a hard day. Every day when i got home from school, this little girl was waiting for me out on her driveway, with a huge smile on her face. Everytime i saw her, I was able to smile and forget about problems i had going on.

In my opinion, being happy can mean getting a good grade in a class that you usually aren't good at, seeing someone you love, and getting a smile or even a hello from someone. When you show to people that you are happy and you show them your smile, you could brighten their day and give them the friendly attitude that they need to see that the simple things in life are much more important than the huge things. I smile everyday when i just see the mountains and my friends, it doesnt matter to me whether i am upset or mad, cause i know that a great day is coming, no matter what!

On the road again (2)

Yesterday, we traveled from Beaumont, Texas to Houston, Texas to pick up my dad. Then we traveled to Witchita Falls, Texas and stayed there for the night. Today, we were supposed to finish the "road trip" with the final nine hours of the trip. But of course, because it diecided to snow in Colorado, me and my family couldn't go anywhere since all of the roads we need to get into Colorado are closed. We spent most of today shopping, and relaxing, not wanting to get back in the car tomorrow and then going back to school on Monday (woohoo!!! Not!!).

I did get all of my homework done, except for a few problems on my math homework that i don't understand (Really, who assigns homewrok over Spring Break?). So tomorrow i get to just relax in the car and then sleep when i get home. And i will sleep for a long time! I am looking forward to school though since i do get to see all of my friends (Yay!).

Well tomorrow is going to be pretty boring since we will be on the road again. Hopefully we will be home tomorrow and we won't get stuck in the middle of Texas!

On the road again

This week was spring break in Colorado and so me, my mom, and my friend all went down to Texas to visit my sister, brother-in-law, and my niece. We spent most of the time swimming, relaxing, watching TV, and playing with my niece. After a week of being away from home, it's time to head back home and almost time for school to start again. We have to drive for about seventeen hours to get from Beaumont, Texas, to get to Colorado.

While we were down in Texas, my dad was on a business trip in New Orleans, and then in Houston. Houston is about an hour away from Beaumont so after lunch today, we will be heading to Houston, picking up my dad and then driving home together. The drive back home is usually pretty easy unless it decides to snow in Colorado. There is a "blizzard" in Colorado and in some parts of Texas and New Mexico. There is supposed to be about sixteen to twenty-four inches of snow by the time we get home on Saturday. Hopefully we are able to get home sometime on Saturday without the delay of snow.

I am not really looking forward to the sixteen, seventeen hour drive home but i have plenty to do. I have to finish my math homework (who gives homework over spring break?!?), finish memorizing my lines for the Shakespeare festival my school is doing, and watch movies on the DVD player in my mom's car. Every time i go on a "road trip" with my family, i always think of a song from one of my favorite movies. "On the road again" from the movie Shrek. I love Donkey, he is so funny!

Well i have to go finish packing for the trip. Seventeen hours, Woohoo!

Welcome to my mind

Hey Everyone! This is my first blog and i am so excited to start blogging just like my dad. He has been blogging for over a year now and he would let me guest blog every now and then and i was having so much fun that i decided to start my own.

Just a little back ground on me; I am an Avs Fanatic (the Avs are the Colorado hockey team). I have a brother and a sister, and a brother-in-law. My sister has a daughter that is seven months old and is the cutest baby in the world. I love to baby-sit. I love little kids so much that i volunteer in the elementary at my school, once or twice a week. I am thinking about being a teacher when i grow up and go to college.

My Blogs are going to be about many things and most likley random. They will be about the Avs, my family, my friends, high school, and "drama" that happens in my life. There will probably be many more things but that is just a start.
Thanks so much for reading my first blog and more will be coming soon.
