worst semester of my life...

No, seriously. It was the worst semester of my life. I had some great, great times and got a lot closer to some of the best friends I will ever have, but school wise... worst semester ever. My classes were really hard and just sort of felt pointless to me a lot of the time, so the work felt pointless, therefore I didn't ever even care about learning or want to learn. Which upsets me because I love learning. A lot of it has to do with my attitude, which needs serious fixing, but still, it was rough. I know it was rough for everyone in my cohort, too. Even though it sucked, I did learn a lot during this semester. I learned that I need an attitude adjustment. I learned to shut my mouth. I learned how to teach literacy to children. And one of my favorite things I learned was fun, interactive ways to get kids writing. Oh and the fact that I am total downer and need to be more positive. I learned that third graders tell on everyone for everything. Annoying as they can be, the third grade curriculum is so much fun!

Hello to the best summer of my life...

At least that's what I'm hopin for! I learned that girlfriends are actually a good thing! Thank you Lyndsee Brice! May 20-22: Redlands here we come!! So excited for our roadtrip! I am ready for a break from school and just earn some money, have some fun, and preferably change my life, for the better. I want to be more positive and stop letting things get to me so easily. I need to look at the good in people like I used to. I want to get back to that optimistic Paige that I was. I want to be care free, but still care for people. I want to have fun with my best friends! So excited to be living 5 minutes away from Nate again! I miss that kid so much! I just want something. Something good. Hopefully the sun, bees games, work, and a new attitude can give me what I need. Oh and a few trips to Vegas wouldn't hurt!

I want to be able to say this...

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it

its not even fair...

to put such amazing genes all in one family... good night nurse!!

Liam and Chris Hemsworth

scariest movie ever.

Seriously. I have seen a lot of scary movies and I have been pretty damn scared before, but it has been a while since I've been this scared. I literally had tears in my eyes during the movie and I'm sure I will be sleeping with my light on tonight. It was absolutely terrifying and a good movie at the same time.

If you want to be scared to pieces I would definitely recommend this movie... It's about demons and spirits (just to warn you), I know that stuff really freaks people out. And don't let the PG-13 rating fool you, no 13 year old should see this, hell no one should probably see this.

It gets a little weird towards the end, but finishes out by scaring the shit out of you right up to the last minute. Good luck... "Insidious is... Insidious"

best and worst...

week ever!

This week has been CRAZY! I have had the highest highs and the lowest lows... The beginning of the week started off terribly. I was not doing so hot and I was feeling really down, honestly the only thing that got me through was being able to bitch to Thomas. But then the week got better and better! On Wednesday my evaluator came to watch me teach at school and it went fantastic! She was such a sweetheart and gave me only but great things! She made me feel like a million bucks, which is exactly what I needed! Thank you Lori Johnson for being so supportive, positive, and giving such great advice! She came Thursday too and was just as nice! So fun to meet her! Then I got to hang with Thomas all night-SO MUCH FUN! But now I'm dragging cause 2 am is wayyyy too late when you have to get up at 7!

Anyway, tonight is going to be EVEN BETTER cause NATE(!!!!!!!) is coming up!!!!!!! I am so excited to see him! It's been weeks and it's killer not having him 5 minutes away from me! Can't wait to party with him! Hopefully this weekend only continues to be amazing! :)

you are not here

i love this book! fast, amazing read.

"My perspective is changed.
I don't
think i can come back from that.
I don't
think i can live the way I did before.
Not thinking
about all the terrible things that can happen.
Not knowing
what it feels like
to have a part of me ripped out.
How do I come back from this?"

"This is a poem by Henry Scott Holland.
'Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
That we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way you always used.
Put no difference in your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort.
Without the ghost of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner.
All is well."
