My Junior Year so far

So its a new semester at wonderful Logan High. In which I went from an easyish semester to a hard one. Last semester, my delema was finding time to do the little I needed to do. This semester is getting everything done and understanding it. This semester it goes English, which I have friends in and I talk all the time(I am sure my teacher gets annoyed and feels bad for getting mad at this kid that I talked to a lot last semester. But he isn't in my class this semester) Seminary, I have a new seminary teacher that I think I like but the class is so quiet when he is in the room and everyone talks when he leaves. PFP 1050, it is a college class about personal financing. It's pretty boring but kind of interesting at the same time. It makes me realize how my financial status is and doesn't make me happy but hopefully I will just not worry about it. Pre calc, I have a new teacher that is the best math teacher in the school. I still have to stay after and get help but at least she helps me and I am not scared to stay after to get help. Crimson Colony, choir we are doing solo's and ensambles, kind of stressful but hopefully after that it will go back to normal. US History, is just a lot of busy work and I only have to worry about getting it done and studying a little for it. Its an easy class just a lot of unnecessary work. Bio 1010, I love Biology, my teacher said that it is going to be a hard class to keep an A in. I love this science teacher he is my favorite. He yells at people all the time and some people dont like him for that fact. I accidentally went a little to far with being my sassy self and got him to swear at me. Not the funnest thing. It kind of killed my super hyper mood. But after an hour or so it came back. Ill just not talk to him as much and more to my neighbors :) I am trying out for musical next year and still need to find a monologue. I have a job at Cinefour and get paid 5.15 an hour. Which is not enough so I am on the look out for a job that pays at least minimum wage which is 7.25. I am saving up for a car. it is coming slowly but surely. At this rate it will take me till I am 30 to even get a cluncker car. So my hopes are toward getting a better job and learning to work more hours. My social life, I have a bunch of friends, but they are all busy with school activities or singing/dance things. So on weekends I am left to myself a lot. I play during the week with people but weekends kind of drag with homework and nothing to do but work. Maybe I will pick up one of my hobbies again. I am also in the laurels presidency. Which sometimes has me doing a lot. This month I have conducted every Tuesday night, mutual. Given a talk on the 17th and just barely gave the lesson today. When I am not doing all that stuff, I am talking to my family, on facebook, watching a movie by myself, or reading the scriptures. I just barley finished The Book of Mormon and gave it to my friend to read. I have gained a new testimony of the Gospel and have learned the mercy of our Heavenly Father. I have tested out the seminary answers and have really found out that they work. Before I just said them, but now I know they work. Since I am done with reading the Book of Mormon I am reading Conference talks. The Gospel is amazing and makes me feel good. My mother is worried about my sleeping habits because I have been getting about 6-5 hours a night. She want me to start going to bed at 9:30 which might be a good idea. I am planning on going to Arizona in June for a month. My friends are planning on playing with me and it will be a blast. I am also going to see my nieces and my sister. We will have fun. I am so ready for summer its not even funny :) Anywho that is whats been going on with my life.
So a little bit ago I was reading my journal from when I was 12-13. Boy I was a character, I wrote down every detail and said things like "whats worse than walking home in the hot sun beating down on you, with a heavy backpack on your back and pieces of paper flying over your head". I never really knew why I kept a journal, but now I am super glad that I did because its way fun to read. When I was younger I always wanted to be 16, so I could drive, and date and have fun. But now that I am 16, all I want it to have fun, date, and have a car. I had it in my head that once your 16 its just a party all the time. It hasn't really changed all that much. My new goal is to learn how to work, and party later. I need to learn discipline :) but when am I going to have the discipline to sit down and write a schedule... that is the trick.

Groups reacting To You

My friend Helaman, we talk about like everything. We can talk for like hours and hours at a time, over the phone or when it is just us. But I have realized that when we are in the car and his family is there I have the hardest time starting a conversation. At first I thought that I was losing my ability to talk to him, like maybe I was getting bored, but then I realized that I talked to him for forever just last night. So I thought about it for a little longer and realized that I don't know what to talk about with him when I know that his family will for sure comment on it. I talked to my cousin about it and she told me she does the same thing sometimes. But what I am getting at is that even if we act the same to each person we know we act differently when we are in groups, worrying about how people will react when they are with the other people in the group. Because sometimes when one person reacts a certain way other people tend to follow that persons reaction. Hmm I wonder who in his family I am worried about their reaction. I should figure it out.

Slap Happy??

The past few days I have been laughing at the most stupid, random things. I truly think my mind is getting bored, or I am getting sleep deprived, but I wake up happy and I look around me and see something that only I think is funny and start cracking up and people say "what is so funny?" I tell them and they look at me and tell me to calm down, that its not that funny and then they give me the look saying you are funny for laughing like that over something so stupid. I could be all by myself doing nothing and I could be laughing like someone did something that was funny(rolling on the ground, laughing). I really don't know what is going on with me. I am leaning more toward that I am sleep deprived, because I went to Salt Lake had a blast and then half way on the way back I fell asleep, on a loud bus, I slept like a rock didn't wake up till someone woke me up and then when they woke me up it was like wow there are things going on around me, weird. So if I catch up on my sleep I wonder if I will still be happy like I am now. I am sure I wouldn't get as many headaches, maybe I should catch up on my sleep.

Motivation (that I don't have)

Finding a job so I can get my license right when I turn 16... Ok, so my life right now is very layed back and I am having a hard time motivating myself to even do my homework. Bad me. What I need to do is give myself a prize when I get everything done then I can have that prize. And I need a long weekend, once I am caught up then I have to motivate myself not to fall behind again. I need to get in the habit of using my time wisely. Right now I could be reading and catching up but no I am on here wasting my time... Oh but if you guys have any good job ideas for me that would be great :D I really want to drive...
