I have done everything to get into a four year credited college. I got good grades, took the SATs (several times I might add), took online classes (some even with a normal school load), even graduated a year early! Now, all I'm asking is for a little help from the world. But I am not asking for anything for free. I will work for anything you have to offer. And remember, nothing is too small or too insignificant. Advice or a kind word is as greatly appreciated as a donation or contribution.

Listening to Anberlin's new single, I realized that the last couple days could be titled "Impossible" as well. That Craigslist post I made for a job wanted proved not to furnish any real job offers (dumb advertisers and scammers!) but I don't hold anything against Craigslist. I made a new post though, in hopes that someone will see it and actually have a job for me. But that wasn't it though. I recently filled out two applications for local jobs, and handed them in. So far, I haven't received any calls from either job, but then again I don't know how long it takes for an employer to look over an application. (Shouldn't it only be a day or two?) It all just seems like everything is extremely hard to accomplish. How does everyone else do it?

Another thing that seems "Impossible" is college. No one ever told me that you had to do so many things AFTER you attended school for 12 years, received good (or excellent) grades, took the SAT (or ACT) several times, filled out too many applications, handled all the paperwork for transcripts and scholarships, and (finally) graduated high school with a diploma. I knew that their would be some paperwork involved, but jeez! No one said anything about how hard it would be to get a loan, or move to another state for college.

So, impossibly, I'm getting through it all. Just very, very, slowly and, god help me, patiently.

For now,

PS. My friend made this little dancing thing I thought was cute:

How To Graduate High School *For Parents Too!*

In the days leading up to my trip, I've decided to create How To's since there is a lot I would like to share about High School.

Note: This is also for parents too!

Today's How To: How To Graduate High School

1: Take Online Courses.

I took about a whole school year's worth of online courses, and I found it was easier to learn online than it was in school. Now, online courses have a bad rap with students because most are afraid that it isn't for them. I've had several people tell me that they just couldn't stay focused with an online course. While this might be true, most of those students probably looked at the course, looked around, and decided that it wasn't worth the effort. (I'm so sure, I'd bet on it.)
I don't know how many online course sites there are out there, but for anyone living in Florida FLVS (Florida Virtual School) is the best. It's free for middle and high school students, and you can take as many classes as you want. I took Physics, Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry, Driver's ED, Pre-Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, American History, and Micro Economics...either Honors or AP. All of the courses offered at FLVS are based on an "at-your-own-pace" type of deal. It's even part of their motto.

My advice is to at least try FLVS if you are having difficulties with learning certain subjects in school such as math and history (like me), or if you just want to get ahead in high school and graduate early. Online courses take a lot of determination to finish (because you have to do it all out of school) but they can prove to be worth your while if you stick with them.

2: Take "Good" Notes

They were right when they said, "if you write it, you're more likely to remember it."

Though, I've found it was really hard to take "Good" notes. Who really knows what good notes are? As long as it wasn't one sentence, I figured it was ok. Wrong!! I also tried writing everything down...and when I went back to it later I got bored reading pages of notes.

The best way to take "good" notes is to write things that you can use later to help you remember the lesson. Even if it is a short phrase to remind you of something, such as "SOH CAH TOA." For those who haven't taken Trigonometry yet, that probably is a bunch of gibberish. But for those of you who have, it means "Sine: Opposite over Hypotenuse, Cosine: Adjacent over Hypotenuse, Tangent: Opposite over Adjacent." This are very important to remember for graphing and other trig functions, the little phrase SOH CAH TOA helps you remember it, and is easy and fast to write down when taking notes.

3: Schedule Your Year Smartly

If you already know you have to take PE and you hate it, schedule another "fun" class right after or before it (or take it online!). In order to save yourself from a bad attitude all year, schedule plenty of "fun" classes you enjoy taking, like band, art, culinary, forensics, or even an academic class you're good at. This will keep your positive attitude high and you will feel better during a hard or boring class.

4: Don't Let Your Ipod Rule Your Grades

If you're like me, then you would love to have every teacher allow Ipod listening during class. You don't see why it isn't allowed, because you do so much better with it playing in the background.

Music may let you relax and focus better on your studies, but you can't let it rule you. Even if you are able to have it on during some classes, even the most "lax" teachers will not let you even touch it during an exam. And if you're like me, your exam scores will show that you aren't as focused as you were when you had it on. So, try to leave your Ipod out of class. Experiment with ways of distracting yourself enough so you can focus. Here's one that I found to be effective. I have a watch that clicks softly like an old grandfather clock every second. While it may sound just annoying, during a test it was almost like I had music on. It at least was a steady beat, and when I needed a distraction to focus, it helped. And the really great part was that it wasn't loud enough to distract anyone else in the room.

If that doesn't work for you, try silently tapping your foot to a beat. This will also provide your brain with a "distraction" but you will still be able to focus on the material in front of you.

5: Try Different Ways To Study

If there is one thing you take from this post, it's the necessity to STUDY! Yes, it may be boring for most...but it is a must, even for the lucky people who have photographic memories. As I said in an earlier post, there are many different ways to study and it is important that you find which one works for you.

*Try having a "Study Party" (like college kids do) if you just can't make your class interesting enough to remember. *Just remember to study:) *

*Try flash cards if you are able to remember small facts by repetition.

*Try creating a song or beat in your head to go along with your notes if you remember music lyrics easily.

*Try recording yourself repeating phrases or facts if you can remember things you hear better than see. *This can also be helpful if you are taking a foreign language class too*

*Try creating phrases like SOH CAH TOA if you just need a little reminder. Someone in my Algebra II class came up with "I Won, I Won, and in-between I lost" to remember the imaginary numbers values:
i = i
i^2 = -1
i^3 = -i
i^4 = 1
and so on...

Because Won sounds exactly like One, it reminds you that the value is one, and not i. The word "lost" is supposed to remind you that whatever the value is, it is negative. The pattern repeats every 4 terms.

High School is rough, but it can be made easier. My last tip:
6: Relieve Stress

Stress does a lot to your mind, and your body. And during school, it is not beneficial to be over stressed. If you have a hectic life, take a small break from it all. If you can't take a vacation, plan a day or an hour to be by yourself or with friends.
Lighting candles and turning up the music is one way, but drawing, playing an instrument, and even working out are all very good ways to relieve any extra stress.

So students, take these tips and learn from them! Parents, use these tips to help your kids! And if anyone has any questions or suggestions, please comment! If you have anything to add, I'd love to hear from you!

Hope this helps,

New Hope

Earlier this week things were definitely looking down. Everything just seemed to be piling up (mostly bills) and it felt like I was getting buried alive. However, in my desperation I did post a job wanted ad on Craigslist and it turned up a few hits. Only two proved to not be scams...but I am still waiting for a reply for one that seemed to be a legitimate job offer. Hopefully it turns out good and I can start making some money! Things are still pretty gloomy, but at least I can hold on to that little glimmer of hope for now. Wish me luck!

Also, for anyone who's looking for a job I highly suggest Craigslist.com for posting "job wanted" or just to browse. It's also a good site for anything else you're looking for because it is totally free to post, browse, and search.

Well, that's all I have for today. I'll be updating my blog soon with some cool stuff...check in to find out what! :)

Have a good night,

Lazy days of summer....HA!

Every summer I've ever had has been pretty much the same. When school ends my whole entire day is free because I don't have to go to class, but I can't find anything to do but sit around, read, watch tv, go on the internet, or watch a movie. All very lazy days of summer.
This summer, however, instead of sitting around and doing pretty much nothing I find myself doing more than I probably ever have in all the previous summers I remember (except the ones spent doing online classes!). I've struggled with becoming an adult, paying bills I can't afford, dealing with a boss that is incredibly difficult, planning an 11 day trip to college, learning how to talk to the counselors in admissions and financial aid, and finding more work.

And let me tell you, there is NOT a lot of work out there for 17 year olds with no car. I mean, I get that transportation is important...but how can employers expect a teenager to have a car? Don't cars cost money? Last time I checked, they most certainly do. How is a teenager supposed to buy a car before they even have a chance to earn any money? The only reason teenagers have a car is because their parents got them one for their birthday. But all of the other teenagers who don't have wealthy (and I don't mean rich) parents, get stuck between a rock and a hard place.
And to top it all off, if you're a teen and don't have any prior experience, you are given this look like you're a leper. Just because you don't have any experience waiting tables or ringing up clothes doesn't mean you're a bad worker.

The weirdest part of it all is that most all of my other friends got jobs when they were 16, and I still can't find one at 17. How did they score that? I mean, I went to all the same places they did, how come nobody hired me? And when I went to places like Build-A-Bear, Forever 21, or Borders, the people there said you had to be 18 to work there. So I was like: ok, fine. Then, when I asked a few friends...they all said that those places hire at 16, they even had one of their friends work there, and she was 16. So naturally, I was confused. Why is everyone saying something different? All I wanna do is work for my money...why is everyone making it so hard?

Anyway, the point of this post is to say that this summer has definitely been more demanding than it has ever been. I never knew in all my years that growing up was this hard. I don't know if all of this is bubbling up now that I am preparing for college, or if it is just because I'm going all the way to Washington. Either way, this summer has been everything but lazy.

That's all I have to say for tonight. Sorry it has been so long since my last post, but at least now you know why :)

Goodnight to all,

The few good things about school most don't appreciate

Ahhh, the one thing I love about school the most...shopping for school supplies :)
I know, sounds totally freshman-y...but I can't help it! I love the feel of a new backpack, new folders, new pencils, new binders...the works!

And the really cool part of school starting is the fact that everything else is new too. New people, new clothes, new shoes, new classes, new haircuts, new style, new attitude, new, new, new!! A new school year is the chance for every student to re-invent themselves, even if it's just a little thing they change like a bad study habit.

I like to take that whole month before school starts to go over what all I have (material wise). Then I go over what I don't want to repeat from last year (attitude wise, or other). And by the time school starts, I feel more confident and focused on not only school, but myself as well. School is not just a means of learning text book material. It's also a way to learn "outside the box" and discover things you probably wouldn't have at home. While most people say they hate school because the teachers are bad, or their classes are hard, I think the real problem is their attitude.
Last year I had a really bad trig teacher. He liked to mumble his way through the lessons, then give us 6 worksheets before test day on friday. Yippee. My second year in HS, I didn't appreciate my Algebra II teacher's way of teaching, and let's just say I didn't quite pass. (Though I did take it again online, just to prove I could get an A.) And through all the griping and complaining that life wasn't "fair," I learned that I actually had learned something!
Obviously, I didn't learn much during those classes. But, in order to not fail, I did find a tutor and I took an online make up class. So already I learned to take control of a bad situation and turn it around so I'd get to graduate.

And in light of this post, I've decided to write down some tips for any student that is having one of the 3 major issues in school.

Issue #1: The class is too hard/confusing. Issue #2 The teacher isn't explaining it right!

Tips: Find a tutor or a friend that is either well versed with the material, or well versed with the teacher's way of teaching. And also remember that any math or science class has a TEXTBOOK! If you don't like the way your teacher explains something, you can always go back in the text book and read the material for yourself! (Teachers have to get their sources from somewhere!)

Issue #3: I am just not into ____insert class here___.
Tips: Find something about that class that's interesting! Or, if there isn't anything, find a cool and fun way to study the material for the tests like making up a song in your head, recording yourself reciting facts, making flash cards, or having a study party with your friends. (Just remember there has to be more studying than partying :) )

More often than not most students would rather be lazy than do something about their grades or their attitudes about school. I was like that my second year of high school...and I regret it to this day! Grades are very important if you want to go to college. (But also remember to not "freak out" if you have one bad grade.) And even if you don't want to go to college, school is extremely important for understanding the basic things. School really isn't all that bad, most of the stuff I thought I'd "never use again" I'm now seeing as I prepare for college.

So I say to every student out there: always strive to be your best, and don't just opt out before you've given school a chance. You might actually learn something:)

So anyway, I guess you could call me a school-lover. It's not that I particularly like waking up early to learn math, science, english, and history, it's just that I appreciate the whole experience.

All for now,

About me and some things I DID learn in HS

The last two days I've been looking for more work, and I finally found it! It's only an odd job here and there, but at least it's more money towards an apartment or something else I'll need in college.
I keep trying to have a positive attitude, because I read somewhere that keeping a positive attitude helps a person generate their own luck. Kinda like Karma. I'm not sure if it works that way or not, but at least having a good attitude is better than being bitter about everything :)
Anyway, I still haven't found an apartment...everything seems to be just a little too far. Hopefully soon I'll find something just a bit closer. Right now I've only seen places that are an hour+ away from my school by bus which isn't too bad, but I won't be getting much sleep if I have to wake up 2 hours before classes each morning. I'm still looking though :)

Sorry I don't have much to report...things are going very slow now but I know in about few weeks time things are gonna pick up. Fast. So, I'm retaining my positive attitude and doing all that I can now while everything is still fairly slow.

And seeing as how there isn't much to report...I'll tell you a little more about me and what I've learned over the years.

As you already know, I've got a dog. She's sort of like my best friend, even if that sounds weird.

My favorite color changes frequently to fit my moods or type of clothes, first it was blue (to fit my girlish way of dressing in middle school), then it was black (to fit my sort of emo-like phase--I wasn't emo, but I did like black a lot..plus, I was really insecure as a freshman), and finally now it's red (to fit my I-don't-care-what-people-think attitude). And I don't care what other people think of me when it comes to what clothes I wear, or what music I like, or who I chose to hang out with.

My favorite music choices (by the way) are pretty much anything that sounds good to me. I've liked classical, rap, metal, country, rock, alternative, indie, punk...pretty much everything. Mostly I listen to alternative/metal/rock however, because I like the fast beats and the lyrics. I recently downloaded "Jar of Hearts" By Christina Perri, and I gotta say...it's fantastic. I can't wait for her to come out with more music. I recommend this song to anyone who appreciates a good "lovesick" song, or to anyone who appreciates raw talent.

I've been wanting to learn how to play the guitar for some time now...my mom bought me one a couple years back for Christmas but I never found the time or the drive to stick with it. Every time I pick it up, my fingers hurt! lol It really is true what they say, "no pain, no gain" and with guitar, you've gotta develop calluses on your fingers to be able to play for long periods of time.

I do homework and other school stuff way too much. While I was in high school I took online classes, so I was doing something for school Monday through Sunday. If I took a day off, it was for Thanksgiving or Christmas. My spring breaks and summers were spent online, doing Physics or Algebra. I'm not a geek though. I don't study or do homework because I really love it, because I would probably like hanging out with friends much more. I did all the extra work because I knew what I wanted out of life, and I wasn't going to play around with my grades. I knew that grades were important to important colleges, so I sacrificed most of my social life (and sometimes all) to get ahead. Now that I've graduated, I know it was all worth it. The things I used to care about when I first started high school, like boys and cute outfits, all seem very small now that my life is finally starting to take shape. If I could go back and tell myself to stay away from distractions, I would.

I absolutely LOVE reading. It's like a whole other world I can drown in...kind of like a movie, except I can picture it in my head. Starting about two years ago, when everyone would ask me what I wanted for Christmas or my birthday, I said, "books." And I was completely serious. I love it when I have a gift card to Borders or Barnes, and I can buy a couple books that I've been dying to read for a few months:) (I'm not a geek, but I AM a bookworm!!)

Anyway, those are just some of the little things about me, some things I enjoy, and some things I've learned. If anyone reads this and would like to ask me anything about high school or anything else, please do. I always like to help, even if it's just giving advice.

For now, goodnight!

Pain in my neck...literally.

Well, you can see by the time of this post (12:30AM) I've been hard at work.
That's pretty much it. I did a lot of sorting through more stuff, and realized I have WAY too much stuff! This really is a life lesson all in itself! In the future, I vow to not have sooo much stuff. At least in clothes that is:)

But anyway, the point is is that I'm tired...again lol so I guess this is goodnight! To all, I hope you will have a good night as well and learn from my mistakes! Don't accumulate things you don't need. You'll regret it later when you have to go through it all!

Exciting day...if not eventful

Today was the 3rd day and last day of my big moving sale...at least for now :)
I gotta tell you, it's exhausting. Even though all I do is put stuff out on tables and sit in a chair and tell people prices all day, in Florida weather...well lets just say that the all the cold drinks and mosquito spray in the world can't help. I've got more bites on my legs than I can count, and I've probably sweated at least 5 pounds off since this morning. But hey, if it means the difference between an apartment or living on the street...I'll take it. :)

Enough of my complaining! Today I met some really nice people who came by my sale (and some really creepy ones). I was talking with my mom the other day about how today's society compares to how it was in the "old" days. I saw a picture where a diner had one weaving bar, with stools set only about a foot or so apart from each other. In the photo, people where all sitting next to each other and talking, and it really bugged me. I thought about today's diners, where there are about ten separate tables spaced about 3 feet apart from each other. The difference in today's society is staggering. You may be thinking, why would seating arrangements be important? Well, the arrangements themselves speak their own language. They say, "I don't really want to sit by a complete stranger when I could sit here all by my lonesome." And that is precisely the problem. We (as in this generation) are so antisocial it is amazing. And I don't mean that teenagers don't talk, because they do. I'm saying that in the "old" generation, people could walk down their street and know everyone's name, their birthday, even what they were doing for Christmas. Today, I could walk down my street and tell you that I know absolutely nothing about any of my neighbors. Granted, not everyone is particularly "friendly" which is exactly why it is such a shame that our society isn't like the last...in that area at least. Just a thought.

Speaking of people, today my mother and I got stuck in a parking lot after we bought a nice load of cold and frozen groceries. Our old car suddenly decided that it wasn't going to go anymore, even though five minutes ago the engine had been purring with life. So, sitting in the hot car with frozen and other cold groceries, we called AAA to hopefully get a jump. At first, they estimated a one hour wait. My mom almost freaked. Ok, not almost. But then, a AAA guy called and said he was in the area, and it might only be 10 minutes. I rejoiced! Help was on the way! When he arrived, he got to work. The first 10 times, the battery didn't respond. Needless to say my mom was already on the verge of shouting at the sky or crying. She had already had a long day's work, and didn't need an unwilling car on top of it. Finally, the guy figured out that the starter was becoming heated, because of the age of the car, and said that all it needed was a few taps in the right places after it had cooled down. And he was right! Soon enough, the engine caught and held. I was so relieved! Apparently, AAA had recently been hiring actual mechanics so he was able to figure out what was wrong because he was familiar with cars already. Thank goodness for that!

So today was very exhausting but, at least, eventful. I met some nice people, earned some money, and learned how to fix a problem with a starter in a car!

That's all I have to share for now. Talk to you tomorrow!

2nd day of moving sale!

Today was the 2nd day of the moving/garage sale to get rid of most of my things before going on the long drive from Florida to Washington to college. Its sad to get rid of some things. I put them out for sale, and sometimes I look at them a few minutes later and take them back. lol

The sale was great! I've earned enough to pay for 1/4 of the rental truck so far!
Anyone have any one way truck rental discount coupons?

I'm looking for a place in Washington near Seattle, Tacoma, or maybe Renton. I posted to a roommate site but I've gotten some strange responses. Some of them sound like they are looking for a mate not a roommate! hahaha I need a quiet, clean place
on the busline. Hopefully, I will find something soon.

I just joined Technorati and I am supposed to put this code in my blog
J5VVTHJG6WWW. Wow! Who knew all this stuff would be so complicated. hahaha

Sorry for the short blog today but I'm exhausted.

2 things I didn't know before

Today was exhausting. I woke up at around 5 am to go to my grandparent's house because they were nice enough to hold all of my unwanted stuff so I could have a huge 3 day yard sale. Yesterday, I ended up going to bed at around 1 in the morning, but kept waking up during the night, so I probably only got a solid 3 hours of sleep. However, I slapped myself into hard drive and finished day one of the gigantic sale.
Not only did I confirm that I am not a morning person, I also learned something new about myself and my grandfather. I have never been the type of person who is outgoing, especially when dealing with people I don't know. Usually people at yard sales (at least the ones who sell a lot) are those really friendly bargainers who just seem like they are buddies with everyone who stops by. As of today, I am one of those people. I found out that I can be outgoing and strike up a conversation, if I don't allow nerves to get in the way. I also noticed I can be a really great bargainer too!
My grandfather is not my "blood" grandfather, but he's been around so long that I consider him to be pretty much every male role model that is missing in my life. He is THAT great. And he isn't the greatest grandfather a girl could ever ask for because he spends his money on me, or takes time to be involved in my life, it is solely because he doesn't "have" to but still does. He has been there for me and my family for my whole life, even though "technically" he could do nothing. This is why I love him like he is my own blood. But this is not what I learned today, because I already knew he was awesome:) What I did learn was that a person does not have to be "blood" to be a family member, just like a foster parent doesn't have to be a child's "biological" parent to actually be the parent.

What they don't teach you in school!

Ever wonder why we are not taught how to do practical things at school? Like: how to decide on the right college, or how to make travel plans, how to rent a truck, how to move, how to change our address, how to set up electric at our own place, how to open a bank account, how to negotiate a pay rate for a new job, or even how to get a job?

I was inteligent enough to work my way through high school. I even graduated a year early, by taking online courses and regular high school classes at the same time! However, deciding on a college, getting together a move, setting up an apartment or place to live, finding a roommate. Geez! Those things are way harder than any advanced high school class. What happened to the instruction manual?

Yesterday, I started going through my things, getting rid of stuffed animals and a life long host of items with memories attached. Why? There is NOT a truck big enough to fit them all! hahaha Plus, it is not very practical to cart a bunch of, what others might call, junk half way across the continent. So, today was more going through the memories and deciding which ones I cannot live without. The others will have to remain just a notion in my head. :)

I looked at the route today. I need to find the best route from Florida to Washington. Anyone have any ideas? I would like the trip to be as fun as possible and I have about 11 days. Are there any great places on the way? Or places that would be worth altering my drive? There is a bit of adventurer in me! So I figure, I might as well make this trip worth it. I mean, how often do you get to drive 3000milestocollege in your lifetime? I would love to see some historical sights, meet some fun people, do some amazing things on the way. Any suggestions?

I'm looking for a place to live somewhere near Seattle, Tacoma or Renton. Actually, anywhere within a 50 minute bus ride to downtown Seattle. This is what I would like:
clean large 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom, private bathroom, air conditioning, heat, a nice view would be great but not required, a patio or small back yard, washer and dryer hookups (if it already has a washer/dryer that's fine). I have a medium size well-behaved/trained dog. I would really like to bring her. Her comfort on the long trip is a concern and also having a place that accepts her once I get there.

That's all the time I have for now. Please leave suggestions, comments, advice. They are always welcome and I need all the help I can get! Believe me!
Have a great day!

Day Two--July 6th

Hey all!
Progress is slow, but it's still going! Today I had to do one of the hardest things: go through (and get rid of) all of those stuffed animals I've been keeping in my closet for many many years. It was hard mostly because it wasn't just a stuffed animal to me. It was a memory I shared with a loved one now gone, a happy birthday I never wanted to forget, or an event that made me cry so hard my mom felt bad and bought me another stuffed animal just so I'd feel better. Overall, it's been a rough day. Getting rid of things is never fun, especially when there are special memories involved.

Although on the bright side of things, I reserved a Penske truck! But I am still looking for coupons/discounts. I also looked for apartments/roommates, and haven't found anything close to my college yet that I can afford. But I did find some really nice people who just gave me some really good advice on where to find apartments and other places to stay. Hopefully one of those sites will be helpful!!

Signing off,

Day One --July 5th

Hey all!
For anyone who reads this, obviously you know (or really should know) by now that I am going 3,000 miles to college from my hometown and am in need of some small things to help me make my way there.
But what you don't know is why am I going 3,000 miles away from my family, friends, and everything else I've known for 17 years. Is it because I'm one of those teenagers who hates their parents and just wants to get away? No. In fact, I love my mom dearly...even though she sometimes gets on my nerves (and I on hers). The real reason I am moving so far away (besides that I got a good scholarship) is because I am looking for a whole new experience.
Everyone always says that college is supposed to be that one experience that will help you grow as a person, not only mentally, but socially as well. So, it dawned on me while I was applying to colleges that if I'm going to have a life changing experience, why not change my life? And when a totally out-of-the-way college decided they liked me, I went for it.

Not only am I preparing for a new school, new friends, and new challenges, I'm preparing for a new home, and a completely different environment.

Just as a side note...does anyone have a Pensky truck rental coupon? If so, PLEASE let me know!

Signing off,
