81.  I'm more involved with my sorority now than when I was in college.

82.  I'm the most organized messy person you'll ever meet.

83.  My college degree is one of my most my prized possessions.

84.  Since going back to college I have forgotten how to spell.

85.  I'm officially the shortest cousin on both sides of my family now.  (first cousins only)

86.  I love the color purple and think everyone should embrace purple fun day.

87.  I have a core group of friends that I love more than anything.  

88.  Said core group of friends should love me too.

89.  I'm a mess.  I fall, trip, forget everything, (if it's not written down i've forgotten it!) 

90.  I like to call my brother daily to bother him.  (and he lets me although he doesn't always answer!) 

Important things to know about me...

I have been bothered quite a bit lately by the lack of communication from friends and family (i am guilty too) so people why aren't we using our phones? I have poor reception but I have a house phone that works just fine so why don't I use that? Have I started relying too much on cell? With school starting back up in two days I'll be super busy and email will be the best way to get ahold of me but seriously pick up the phone and call your best friend, your mom, my mom heck anyone!

Things that anger me this week: 
People who get mad at you for not calling! HELLO your phone works too call your friend.

People who get mad at you for stupid things.

RUDE people.  Oh that really angers me.

That's all for this week. So forgive me for being all jewish mother on you but dude call your people.

more about me

71.  i think highlighters and post-its are fantastic.

72.  i color code my closet.

73.  until recently thanks to my bff from 5th grade my jammies had to always match.

74.  i don't like being called jenny

75.  i don't like it when people spell jen with two nn's

76.  my initials are jkl.

77.  i don't have wisdom teeth (they never came in)

78.  i have no clue where i want to live next year

79.  i love hoodies and think that everything should have a hood.

book 1 (evvy's civil war)

Evvy's Civil War is a book about a 14-year-old girl growing up on a plantation in Virginia during the time of the Civil War.  Her plantation was given to her father upon his father's death and is now a school for boys and a small farm.  Evvy has five younger sisters and no brothers, which is important because her grandfather passed the land down to the next male heir.  Evvy turns 14 in the book and becomes a woman, which means corsets, hoop skirts, be pretty and not speaking her mind which she finds hard to do.  Her family is detached from the War in the beginning because they live in the country and have few slaves which we find out that her father offered to free when he became master of the house.  We find out later on why they chose to stay but her family is not like other southern families during this time, nor is Evvy.  I find that she is a strong woman with strong values, and beliefs and found this book to be an easy read despite the fact it was almost 200 pages.  

mission statement

i'm on a mission people! 
  i have an assignment for my read class which is to write a paper/chart whatever you want to call it about 30 different books.  well considering this is my last semester of grad school and i'm a giant nerd i've actually read enough books but i want to branch out and try some new ones (at least until i get overwhelmed and quit that) so i'm going to start telling you about the books.  that way i can blog and get some hwk done at the same time.  (adam does this count as being about me? ha ha)

shout outs..

What I learned this time two years ago..

 that mean people can be your best friends.  
   me: oh what are we doing?
   h: talking about people!
   me: oh i love this game!

(Instant BFF)

What big step, little step really means when walking down masada and it takes three people to do it.  

That B and his pink swim suit will definitely always be a fantastic memory for me.

The most important thing I learned is that you can still talk to people two years later even if the other person (hil) says you never will.  

this time two years ago with bus 586...

1. we were getting our counting wrong.

2.  we were learning tani's top ten favorite animals.  (llamas anyone?!?!?)

3.  we were learning from the rabbis' what sloshed really meant.

4.  look at the birds.

5.  we were ignoring dina and her talking.

6.  i was wearing most of, if not all my clothes at once.

7.  josh writing i rock on the rock.

8.  samantha falling in the water and brock getting my reaction on film.

9.  did i mention it was cold?

10.  almost getting killed while nichole was on the camel and i was not ..

I miss yall!!
