Feel my Sunlight!

I like to eat perfume.

Whoa! Don’t post for a few days, and you feel like you’ve disappeared from the blogging world. Not that anybody noticed I’m sure. So this is our last week before school starts. Ahhh! I haven’t bought a single new piece of clothing. I know that doesn’t sound like me right? well, my school clothes money that I usually get from my mom went to what I owed her for EFY (and oh so worth it!) I haven’t gotten a paycheck all summer (I get payed this week & next week!) So I have been tentative about spending what little money I do posses. I have been shopping a few times, but haven’t bought any clothes. Although I have bought a few other things.

 Yesterday was my little sisters birthday and she wanted to go shopping. So we went to this store and we where smelling the perfumes. I held the little tester bottle up to my nose to smell it, and I accidentally pressed down on the little nozzle. I sprayed the perfume right into my mouth. Needless to say perfume….tastes DISCUSSING! we laughed and laughed, and I couldn’t get the taste out of my mouth for a really long time. The funny thing is, I ended up buying the perfume.

So today (as I was wearing that perfume) my friend Carina and I where assigned to teach the lesson for Mia Maids and Laurels. (we combine a lot because we have so few Laurels.) We didn’t know until today that we would be teaching Beehives as well. So Carina and I taught a combined lesson. Can you guess what the lesson was on? Dating! funny thing is neither of us have ever been on a date! haha but it was good and I think we did an okay job.

So there are my two funny stories form the week. Hope you liked them!

All grown up

Today was an all grown up day. It made me feel old, mature even. I went to the high school with one of my friends, to get our pictures taken, and to find all of our classes for the year. It was fun seeing lots of old friends I haven’t seen all summer. We were in awe at how huge the high school is compared to our little junior high. We wandered around the halls for a few hours, and I think I finally got the hang of it, after getting lost, and turned around a few times. Then after we toured the school I drove my friend home. I! ME! Yes ME, I drove! (Have no fear, my mother in the passenger’s seat) That in and of itself makes one feel old. Then I drove to the post office to drop off some books, then to work. WORK! It was my third day at work. It was good. I contemplated how I am old as I was facing the shelves. So there you have it. That little girl that was scared to cross the street until she was seven, and was the shyest person in the entire universe (I’m no longer shy) Is now going into high school, and working two jobs. This is crazy stuff. Even I think that!

P.s. So I miss homecoming by 3 days! 3 DAYS! I turn 16 14 days after school starts, and 3 days after homecoming. And am I going? Nope! 🙂 It wasn’t that hard of a decision, mostly because I haven’t been asked yet. But if I do get asked, I’m proud to say I will not go. And that was my decision, not my parents. 🙂

Change- A schedule, and a grocery bag

There are T- 18 days until school starts in my neck of the woods, and I’m not sure how I feel about it. Am I really ready for high school? Truthfully I am ready for high school, I just don’t know if I am ready for the stress, and the homework that comes with it. I am excited to see my friends that I haven’t seen all summer. I’m ready to be 16, but I’m not ready in the way of school clothes! (the most important part of back to school!) Here is my schedule…

1.  Harris-     Biology
2.  Follett-    Guitar
3.                 Seminary
4.  Adams-   World Civ
5.  Munns-   Clothing & textiles 1
6.  Price-      Drivers ED/D & Al
7.  Taylor-    Algebra 2
8.  Brown-   English 10 honors

Pretty much every one who has seen my schedule has told me that I have some crazy teachers. Oh help me!

Today I start work at Bowmans. My dad has worked at Bowmans my entire life. One year for Halloween I was a little Bowmans worker, and my little sister was a grocery bag. I was looking through my old scrapbook and found the scrapbook page. Isn’t it just awesome?!

So Whitney now has two jobs (I’m not sure why I wrote that in 3rd person….But I think I’ll leave it.) I feel so old. Lots of things have happened in the last year that have kind of freaked me out, and made me realize I’m not a little kid anymore. For one I went to my first work party, where people brought dates, and spouses! (have no fear, I brought my dad.) I have started thinking about dating, high school, and college. There are many more things like that, but I’m sure you don’t care for me to list them all.

So there is my life, and how it is changing!

Boating

I feel like I haven’t blogged in forever… But I blogged yesterday so I don’t know what that’s all about.

This morning I got up early (okay, okay it wasn’t that early, but come on its summer!) to go boating with some of my teammates. It was me, Teri & her mom, and Kodee & his grandpa. It was Kodee’s grandpa’s boat and let’s just say I had a BLAST! I wake boarded for the first time and I’m not to bad. I’m a little sunburned, and I’m super sore. Thanks so much Kodee for inviting us! & thanks Teri for letting me hitch a ride! I know what your thinking “Whitney! Why didn’t you take pictures?!” but I kinda forgot, and I didn’t really want my camera to get wet anyways.

So I’m staring at this calendar in my room… There’s a problem with it. There are only 4 Saturdays left of summer. 4 SATURDAYS!!! I’m not ready to go back to school! This happened last year. I wasn’t ready to go back, and then I dreamed about summer for the entire school year. But have no fear! I still have girls camp before I have to go back. 1 more trip to keep me sane through the summer. 1 more trip to help me dread going back. Because this has been the best summer ever. And I don’t want it to end! (I feel like I’ve had to say that a lot recently. I also feel like I’ve said a lot of good byes recently too. Maybe it is time for a constant)

So there you have it folks. I’m a pretty good wake boarder, and I’m not ready to start high school. Ahhh! Wish me luck!
