So far I am on my way to making straight A's this semester! I am still waiting for a few grades to be posted.
That would boost my overall GPA to be high enough to rejoin my sorority. :) Fingers crossed.

Days until graduation: 360-estimate. ;)

I'm Earning Great Grades!

So far this semester my GPA should be above a 3.5...I think. :) I need to a get a really good GPA this semester to raise my overall one so I can rejoin my sorority. I am working really hard in my classes on all of the papers projects, and tests. It is a relief in some ways to only be taking journalism classes this semester, but granted it is 16 credit hours. 16 hours can be tough at times, but I am plugging right along. I am really proud of myself for doing so well this semester. Thanksgiving break is less than two weeks away, eek! Time sure does fly by fast. After T-break there is only one week of classes then finals week left. I CAN DO THIS. :)
If I do manage to raise my GPA enough, not only will my reward being able to apply and hopefully get back in DZ, but I might have to reward myself with something else. Just have to figure out what.

Campus Walk

I will soon become busy planning the first ever Out of the Darkness campus walk for the KC In-Formation chapter. Part of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention cause, we are planning this walk for the spring of 2012. The date is coming up fast and I need to approach my school to get their approval and set a date so my team and I can get the ball rolling on this huge project. I am the walk chair person and will have  several committee members from the chapter and subcommittee members from the university I attend. "aka my minions" *does evil laugh and finger waving* hehe...jk! I am super excited to be apart of this. Wish us luck! I'll keep y'all updated! :)

Group Projects

Aren't really group projects any more when your group members don't show up to class. NOT cool groupies. I can't do this project all by myself. People need to get their shit together and show up to class and do the things they are supposed to.


I am a beta tester and got my email two days ago. Pottermore is supposed to be open to the public in October. Not much time to be a tester, but I already got through book one and that's all you can do as a beta tester. So I guess it's a good thing I had to wait this long. Sadly Pottermore's servers always crash/are over loaded. So it makes it difficult to play currently. They need to fix that issue asap!!
Add me! ScarletCrimson206. Proud Hufflepuff right hurrr.

Not sure why I chose the major, when I dislike being forced to talk to strangers. I have to interview a fire fighter today. I am just shy and get anxious about it. Ugh. I guess I should get ready and get it over with. I have a busy weekend ahead, and not much time to work on the interview/paper.

My 9/11/01 Memories

On this day 10 years ago I was in my 6th grade science classroom. It was one of my first few classes of the day. I was 8 days shy of 12 years old. Over the p.a. system our middle school principal made an announcement of something along the lines of: “If anyone has any relatives in New York City, NY please make your way to the front office.” Everyone was kind of confused but we went on with class for about five more minutes. After that I remember switching classes and the T.V.s being turned on.
I was in history class this time and we watched the news listening to one of the many broadcasts happening covering the twin tower crash. At that time no one knew why this was all happening. The rest of the day in school was spent watching the news broadcasts. I remember watching the second tower get attacked, by that time America knew this was no accident. I witnessed the pentagon being attacked and the report of the plane crash in the field. I watched with a terrified look on my face the towers fall. The rest of the day was a blur.
Class was not let out early. I made it home on that Monday around my usual time from my new school. My Daddy was sitting on the couch in our hearth room watching the continuous news coverage about the attacks. I asked my Daddy about what all was happening, he said he didn’t know why or who it was. After a long day at school, I was glad to see him and gave him a big hug after I had set my back pack down. 
My Daddy was an air traffic controller for my home area on 9/11/01. Which is far away from NY.  For those of you who don’t know what an air traffic controller is, they are responsible for talking to pilots and giving them directions so the planes don’t crash into each other. I am so thankful that he didn’t have to deal with things at work that day. Mondays and Tuesdays were his days off that year. 
Two days before 9/11/01, on 9/09/01, my family and I returned from our vacation in California. That was the last time I was on a plane before my trip to Vegas last November. Our family friends were set to fly out of CA on 9/11/01, but were delayed a few days do to the no fly policy for the days following 9/11.
I personally do not know anyone who lost their life on 9/11/01, but my heart goes out to all who have lost their life, and those who know someone who did. 
I want to say thank you and God Bless those who served that day, and those who are serving today because of the attacks on America that day. I am a truly blessed American. And am very thankful that I was not on a plane on 9/11, but to think, only two days before instead. 
Don’t take anything for granted. Live life to the fullest. Things can change in an instant. 
GOD BLESS AMERICA. May the victims and heroes RIP. </3 NEVER FORGET.

9/11/01 11-Remember

NEVER FORGET.  God Bless America. May the victims RIP. 9/11/01, the day the world changed. </3
As the 10th anniversary approaches on Sunday, pleas take a few moments to remember where you were that day, how your life has changed, and to remember the brave men and women who were heroes, as well as the victims who lost their lives and those who were injured. Remember.

Shift Leader

I seem to be getting the hang of this whole shift leader position at work. The drawer is really easy to count/total up! We got out of there earlier tonight than I had the past few nights when closing. I am getting trained tomorrow for opening as a shift leader. Should be interesting, I closed tonight to open tomorrow, Ha. The pay increase isn't bad either. ;)

Two Can Keep a Secret

If one of them is dead. Shhhh. Currently reading the first book in the series: Pretty Little Liars. So far it's pretty good, I am over half way done with it. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the series. The T.V. show got me hooked and curious enough to read the books. There are quite a few things in the book that is different from the T.V. show....which I find a bit odd. Oh well, Sara Shepard is a good writer and am loving the book and the show!! I plan on getting the other books from the library. :)

Long Day

So far classes are going okay. Just a lot of homework, waiting in between classes, and freezing my butt off in classes. 2 days down, two to go. I dislike Tuesdays!!

I'm getting old....

I start my senior year of college on Monday and I turn 22 in less than a month. Where has the time gone? I remember when I was so excited to be 21! This past year has gone by SO fast, its not even funny. I've been working at my job for a year on 9/3 and just got promoted yesterday to be a shift leader! :) Side note of my "senior year" in college-I am still a junior by credit hours....but graduate in Fall 2012. Since it will be my 4th year of college I am going to say my senior year, ha.

Anyway I am kind of sad that everyone is growing up SO fast. Can time slow down some time?

Hope it's a great one up there.

Please take a moment of silence to honor someone who is no longer with us. Today he would have been 18.
