this is just going to be a quick post about the last two days. yesterday while i was shopping for mexico stuff with mom john called and pretty much fired me - i said it was okay that i had to quit anyways, but it was quite the shock. it was alright, though. just sucks because it was a lot less money now than i thought i would have before i move. this morning at 2AM dad decided to look into the killings in mexico i have been telling him about - when he finally found out that i was serious and it was really happening, he backed out on the trip and said it wasn't worth our lives to risk it. so we are all here and safe - instead of in mexico. it sucks because i was really excited, but at the same time i respect his decision. tyler and i went to get fuddruckers for lunch, and then went to blockbuster to return our movies and get burn after reading because mom wanted it and animal crossing: city folk for wii, because i've been waiting to play it forever. not sure yet if i'm all that thrilled or not. i just want my spore to come so i can play! but that's not going to happen for a few days. i've got a few books that should be here friday too, since there isn't any mail. we went and got our hair cut after, and then dad, tyler, and i went to Bevmo. i got this bottle of ale because it had a cute owl on it, a bottle of jolt, and he got me a bottle of hypnotiq. so tonight should be fun, haha. may as well have fun being 21, right? right now the boys are playing baja and i'm waiting for dinner. brats, it is! i think i'm going to go bead, or work on my lion latchhook, i'm not positive. happy new year, everyone!

cet mar aquarium will be a new visiting place for us this mexico trip. meghan pennell told me about it a couple days ago and ever since then i've been super excited. apparently it's right down the street from where we've been staying for 13 years and we've never gone. i talked to dad and he said definitely. and i'm so happy, it's going to be great. there's a sea lion named arthur, and they all jump out of the holes in the cages and play with you and steal the food you have in your hand. not to mention the extremely large sea turtles that are there that you can feed and play with, that's going to be awesome. the pictures i've seen show them to be very big. =D it's going to be a great trip.
i have decided that health willing, i would like to go into the peace corps. once i am finished with my degree. i would like to take what i have learned and help others who don't have very many resources to get the nutritional health they need to become happy and healthy, and live longer, more fulfilling lives. i want to make a difference to people who otherwise wouldn't have a chance at the nutritional help they need. nutrition is one of the biggest causes of illness for the people in other countries, and i want to fix it.
i was spending some time reviewing my DARS report at ASU, and it's so interesting seeing how everything i've done so far at PC has transferred over and what i still have left to finish. it sucks because most of what i have left is science stuff. there are nutrition courses in there, but the big stuff is all chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry, anatomy, and all of that kind of stuff. i only have 39 more credits that i need to fulfill though, and dad and i did the math, if i take 15 credits a semester i'll be done in less than two years. we had planned on two. but we will see how all of that works out. we need to get the payment made to williams campus housing today, too. because we don't want that to be late. i have a 3.68 GPA in my major, but only a 2.0 in my general studies. that's only because i got a C in beatles at ASU, and i think that's what they counted that for. but like dad and i were saying, i got a 3.00 for the semester at PC and a 2.o0 for the semester at ASU, if you combine those, that's a 5.00, and that makes me a genius, pretty much. =D. time to shower, pack, clean, and work.

this is lasagna. she's my guinea pig, and i need to find her a really good home. i want to keep her so much, but i just can't. i thought we found her a home but they brought her back, allergies i guess. so now i'm left to the chore of finding her another home, somewhere she will be safe, and happy, and healthy. it is so sad that i have to let her go, but i really can't have her when i move, and my dad seriously doesn't want her here for my mom to take care of everyday. so i don't know what to do? i just want her to go somewhere special. and loving.
this was yesterday. tyler took us to play in the snow in flagstaff. although it was extremely cold, it was a great time. i've never really had a chance to play in the snow, and even though i couldn't walk too well in it, and i fell a lot, it was exciting. we are planning on going back soon, hopefully at the beginning of the year.
