tests, FOJG, Josh & art

on March 5, 2007 - 9:30am

I hate tests. I just had an accounting test and it was really hard. I did homework all day on Friday and I thought I would do ok on it. I hope I do well. Some of those questions I couldn’t remember anything about. I just skipped and went on to others that I did know. I went back at the end and did the ones I skipped. I don’t think I did very well…at least not as well as I hoped.

I was looking at my past FOJG entries and they are so random. They range from Chad’s wedding to a Christmas list to the boards being down to SpongeBob. That is just the kind of person I am. lol.

I hope that everyone that gets to meet Josh has a great time. He seems so nice and down to earth. I want to meet him and spend some time with him. I want to ask him if he has tried his surfboard out yet. I wonder if he is at good as surfing as he is at golf. lol. Oh Josh, you and your hobbies. lol. I also want to meet Lindy and Jack and Chris. I could have a barbeque with his whole family! That would be so much fun! I want to meet Chris’ girlfriend too. I hope that she treats Chris well. I wonder how Chris is doing in film school. Does he still have fun making videos? They should put one up on FOJG so that the Grobanites can see so video. I would love that! Or they could put one on the ‘Awake’ DVD. They put backstage footage that was shot by Chris on the ‘Josh Groban’ DVD. I really liked that.

On Saturday my family went to an art museum to see Eric’s artwork. The museum is showcasing high school student’s art. Eric’s painting was of Long’s Peak. He did it in acrylic. It is cool to see a piece of art that my little brother painted up at a museum. He is getting it back because it is only up for two weeks…but still.

SpongeBob & FOJG

on March 1, 2007 - 11:17am

I just wanted to say Happy First Day of March! Yeah! Sorry, I am a little tired and crazy right now. There is snow on the ground and I want it to be spring. I like having snow but I am tired of the cold. I want it be warm. I want April showers to bring May flowers.

I was talking to Brain, my youngest brother, last night and he quoted SpongeBob. He loves that show. Anyway, Patrick and SpongeBob were having a snowball fight and Patrick got his mouth full of snowballs and he ran over to Squidward’s house and was trying to talk. Squidward shut the door on him and then Patrick knocked and told him something that I thought was really funny. He said, “I was trying to tell you that I was chocking on a snowball, but then it turned into water and I drank it.” (Or something to that effect) Patrick is so dumb that he is funny!

The boards are not working right now and I am really frustrated. Thursday’s are my FOJG days because I don’t have anything to do for six hours. I always work on homework and hang out on the boards. But they are not working and haven’t been since 9:50 pm west coast time…so 10:50 pm here. I hope that someone can fix it soon…today.

UP EARLY, BOOKS, JOSH & NO MONEY

on February 27, 2007 - 7:36am

Well, it is 2:34 in the morning and I can’t sleep at all. I haven’t been sleeping very well for the past few weeks. I wish I could get a good night’s rest one of these days. I don’t like being so tired and worn down all day.

Today is Josh Groban’s birthday. It is also his brother’s birthday, too. Josh is turning 26 and Chris is turning 22. I think it is strange that they were born on the same day but four years apart. My dad says that it is more common then I think. Happy Birthday to the Groban brothers! I love you both.

A couple of weeks ago I started to read a series called ‘The Children of Promise’ written by Dean Hughes. It is an amazing story. There are five books in the series and I am about ready to start on the last one. I find them really fascinating. They are historical fiction books about a LDS family during World War II. I have always liked stories from that era. And I like learning about church history. A few years ago I read ‘The Work and the Glory’ by Gerald N. Lund, which is set during the early time of the church. I read all nine of them so quickly that I want to read them again sometime. They are really fun because I have been to many of the places in those books so I could visualize the plot as I read it. I don’t know what I will read after I am done reading ‘Children of Promise’. Maybe I’ll track down a copy of Andrea Bocelli’s autobiography. That is one I have wanted to read. I don’t even know what it’s called.

My dad went to San Diego this week. My mom is leaving later this week to help in Colorado. I want to go somewhere but I have school and have to wait until summer. Even then my dad wants me to take a few more classes during the spring and summer terms. That is all great and dandy I just want to know who is going to pay for them. I don’t have a steady job and can’t even afford this semester let alone more in the summer. Dad keeps telling me to get a better job…one that pays better. I suppose that he doesn’t exactly want a better paying one just a job that is more regular. Where I work now I get paid $10/hour just to help with the company’s accounting and keeping them organized. But I only work once or twice a week. Right now the computer is broken and I haven’t gone to work for a while. Maybe I should get another job. That would certainly get Dad of my back about paying him back for the loan I took from him to help pay for this semester. I just wish he would back off and give me some breathing room.

I don’t like having any money to spend on myself. I really want to see Josh in Vegas in April but I can’t afford tickets and transportation so I am not going. I keep telling my parents that they could get me tickets to his show for my birthday, which is in June, and I wouldn’t want anything else. That would make my whole year. I might even offer to have no Christmas presents, but I haven’t told my parents that one yet. I just try not to think about it.

What matters most in life

on February 26, 2007 - 12:24pm

I was thinking today about life and how difficult it can be. My life, everyone’s life, is so crazy. We drive in gas-guzzling cars and go to school. We are bombarded with advertisements for this and that. None of that matters. The only thing that really matters in life is not things. Things can be replaced. Family and friends matter. Your body matters. I have been trying to figure out ways that I could make my life more meaningful. Everything I have learned is that I need to be at peace with myself. I have tried to get more sleep and eat three meals a day. I go to church and spend time with my family. I find joy everyday in something, even if it is as simple as seeing the sunset in the evening. I know that anger only inhibits my thinking. So I try not to jump to conclusions and blame others for my faults. I suppose that this self-discovery will not last forever but I sure hope that if I work at it that I can keep it for a long time.

Stress & how I deal with it

on February 20, 2007 - 12:23pm

This weekend Brittany Spears shaved all of her hair off. I thought she went over the deep end when she died her hair black about a week and a half ago. But I was wrong. I can’t believe that she got that stressed out. I got so stressed once that I went to my mom (who is a cosmetologist) and told her to die my hair blond. I am a brunette. She talked me out dieing all of my hair but did put blond streaks throughout my hair so that it is a shade lighter than the dark brown that I have. I was listening on the radio about Brittany Spears and they had a psychologist on. He said that she did it because of the stress of having to kids. I don’t doubt that because I feel like she was not ready to have kids. She is still trying to figure out what she wants in life. I think that the paparazzi had something to do with it. How would you like to have photographers following your every move? I think it would make me feel to crowded and I would want to get away from it all. I hope I never become famous so that won’t happen to me. If I do then I will try to stay out of the tabloids like Josh does. I have noticed that only the party people are in magazines or if they are going to get married or have a baby. None of the good people who actually have great moral standards are in the tabloids. But that is fine with me because I don’t read the magazines.

How can someone get that stressed in their life? I was once like that but realized that I had to change my attitude soon or I wouldn’t make it. I looked at my life and turned around some things. I take one hour everyday and spend it on myself. That might be reading a book or folding laundry while listening to Josh or taking the time to paint my nails. I feel like when I am not happy the people around me pick up on that negativity. I guess it is a good thing I learned to relax now while I am eighteen. That way when I have children I won’t send myself over the edge. I was watching Oprah yesterday. The episode was about living well. Colin Cowie was on and he said that the people should keep their bedroom and their bathroom comfortable and in order because that is the last thing you see at night and the first thing you see in the morning. I had already realized this and I agree. When my room is a mess I wake up and feel cluttered before I even roll out of bed. When I take five minutes the night before to straighten up my room then I always sleep better.

If I feel like my life is stressful I just breathe and try to find out what is bothering me and then I correct the situation. There is a quote I love. I don’t remember right now who said it but it applies. “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
