sooo, it's been a while... =]

May of 2007 is the very last time I posted. It's still pretty amazing to me that this blog has not self distructed after not have been used in so long. (: I think I need to update my links. I couldn't ever keep a diary, lol, I have no idea why I thought I could keep up on a blog... but I have gotten some complaints and they had all just about given up on me... so I thought I would post. It's hard to keep up with everyone and what is going on in there lives if you do not see them or talk to them very often... so in a way this is a great way to be "somewhat" aware of distant friends lives. I'll try not to make any promises, especially since things are so crazy right now, but I know the other day when I actually got on blogger for the first times in ages, I really enjoyed reading what everyone was all up to. So I might just try... yet again... to keep posting. (:

Life is really, really, really crazy for me right now. Not really the crazy kind of busy that you enjoy, but the whole too-much-to-do-so-im-not-getting-anything-completely-finished kind of busy. ): It's not the greatest feeling in the world, but life goes on, and I hear that this semester (along with most, if not all others lol) will come to an end. The three classes I am taking at UAF are just core basic classes that are giving me highschool and college credits. It's pretty neat, esspecially to have them all payed for as well. I even was re-embirsed for most of the books I bought. I am really enjoying my Economics class, the class I thought would be hardest in the beginning of the year. English is pretty fun... I mean... for being English. =P LOTS and LOTS of wonderful papers to write... like the Alaskan Oil Production paper I got on the computer for in the first place (ahem). =] All wellllll. I needed a distraction. However, the whole History thing... wow. It's a bit different. Don't get me wrong. I absolutly love to read history. I guess because I can kind of be a nerd like that.... but my teacher. Is well. A college professor?? Suprise. lol He happens to be pretty no nonsense. Grading us only on 5 or 6 Quizzzes and Exams. No participation points... no presentations, no papers, notta. Which at first sounded great... but... no so much. He gives his quizzes and exams strictly on his lectures... and doesn't even use the book. You study the notes you scramble down as quickly as you can.=/ It's a little different.
The classes I'm taking at home are going okay, though, by the time I finish the school up there its hard to get my other courses in. They aren't honesly getting done as frequently as they should be, but I'm really trying to work on that. I've really found that time is so valuable. It's probably a good thing that I can type rather fast or I would be on here forever. =] Or just be saying something like
Hi. School. Work. Uh, writing paper. gotaa go. love bye.
(: heh. thats funny. if i really am in a rush sometime i should do that.

But anywayyys. Then there's work. Which I have no complaints here. Work is great. Kedrick has always been a great boss, and working at the shop really gives me a chance to get my head out of school mode and just think about things. Working at the hardware store has really helped me learn a whole lot of things I never would have known. Tuesday I'm suppose to change the oil and filter on the backhoe and it just is so cool to me that through helping out and learning to work on the tractors I've learned a lot about how to take car of my car. I still have a long ways to go, but its the hand on easy fun learning like that giving college and homework such a contrast.

I can't wait until Christmas. =] Finallyyy I convinced Kedrick that having a Christmas tree in the shop would really benefit us by drawing in customers and appealing to their Christmas spirit. Haha... he didn't buy any of it... but he pretended to. =] =] =] He just said, Well, you are going to do something anyways, so you minds well have my permission. (: And then proceeded to use the word MODERATION over and over and over again. =] lol Oh its going to be great... im very excited, i think it will brighten the whole shop up. He's leaving me the shop for a couple weeks and going to Arkansas over Christmas. That should be pretty fun... classes will be over by that time and things will be at a very welcome slow down.

I better get going and do some more work on this paper. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day (:

My Emily...your back! Not that you ever left. Just online. :)
I'll always have you on the phone.
I don't even know how to start, other than to say, that it was really great to 'read' about your life. Sometimes when we talk or text its just different. So its really good to read alot about whats going on in your life right now, in one great post.
I miss you so much, and our times together. I really wish I could come home for Christmas.
Our cousin Alex is coming home for the holidays & Cutters wedding, (if you didn't already know that). It will be weird to know that the whole family will be in Two Rivers and I'll be 5,000 miles away.
But its ok, or it will be. God is here, and I am so thankful for technology. Even though virtual hugs just aren't the same.
Stay strong my dear, I love you.
Tori
