There are a lot of words to describe this month. Here are just a few:

Amazing. Wonderful. Lucky. Perfect.

You can tell just by those words how this month went for me.

This month was Amazing because I turned 18. Finally. I got my first tattoo on my eighteenth birthday and I can now legally drive people after only having my license for six months.

This month was Wonderful because I actually had a very good Valentines Day for the first time in years. I did not curl up on my bed watching a chick flick with a carton of Ben&Jerry's. I was productive and went to practice. Stabbing people with blades is much more fun than chick flicks.

This month was Lucky because I was asked by my favorite teacher ever to illustrate a cover. To his novel. Which he is sending out to publishers very soon!

Finally, this month was overall Perfect because I got into the school of my dreams. The only school I applied to. I got in. Not only did I get in to Chester College, I got a $3,500 scholarship from the school for having a "strong application" and when the financial aid came in, the entire price of the tuition and room/board was cut down by almost $9,000!

Well, that's all I have to say right now. I'm a bit bruised and hurt at the moment; fencing has started to take it's toll on my legs... and I have State Championships tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed that my team qualifies for Team States!

Valentines Day

I have always wondered how Valentines Day is what it is today: A sappy romantic holiday for couples. But what about those of us that are not seeing anybody? What about those singles out there, like myself, that don't have anybody to give little romantic gifts or recieve flowers from? This is why I quite dislike this holiday.

After being single for the last two Valentines Day's, I have decided to give up completely on this holiday. Although I do wish for a secret admirer to send me a flower or even a little card stuck in my purse or backpack, I don't think this will ever happen. At least for me, anyways.

The part that irks me the most is the fact that there seem to be more couples out there on this one particular day. As I walked around school today there were carnations in almost every girls hand and even some stuffed animals in the guys backpacks. What is the reason for this? Oh yeah, Valentines Day.

If I actually had someone, I wouldn't think this holiday was so bad. It is a little lame, that I will never think differently about, but it would be nice to have someone... or even get just a card...

Well, that's all I have to say for now. I think I might be going to practice tonight, if I don't fall asleep first. Teehee

Happiness can be found...

In the most unlikely places. That's what I believe today.

I had the most wonderful, awesome, amazing day today. No, I am not exaggerating, and no I am not lying. Today has got to be the greatest day I have had in almost a year and a half. Again, not exaggerating.
After spending almost fourty minutes on the phone with my amazing best friend, Kaitlin, I have come to the conclusion that I deserve to be happy and that today is one of the happiest days I've had in a long time.

Not only did I have that smile, you know the smile, the happy, giddy, "holy cow did that just happen to me?!" smile. Yeah, I had that smile on my face for half the day after the most amazing thing happened to me. My major crush, who was flirting with me, and I him, for the entire day left, looked at me, smiled sweetly, winked and said "See you later."

EEP! This is the greatest thing that's happened in so long. Although I was stuck directing the novice girls strip (for my followers that don't know what I am talking about, I was directing fencing. Basically, I was the referee), I had a lot of fun when one girl on the opposing team screamed "FOR NARNIA!" and charged at one of our girls. When the day started, I told *him* that I did not want to direct, and when the coach running the meet told me that I was directing, I sighed and he was laughing. This was not the first day that he and I flirted for an entire day.

I kind of doubt that anything will happen between us, and there is good reason for that... but a girl can still hope, right?

So it's been a weird February already. The fourth was my eighteenth birthday (Yay for being a legal adult!), and I got my first tattoo. It looks amazing. I am so happy that I got it and although at the moment it is starting to peel, it's going to look even more amazing afterwards! The tattoo itself is kind of nerdy, because it is my favorite quote from Albus Dumbledore, but I guess that's just me.

As for school, I just got my grades today. I was able to get an A in Anthropology, English, and Band, a B in gym (which really confuses me because I did not miss more than one class and I fully participated!), and TWO C-'s, one in Religions (which is understandable because I never talked in that class), and AP French (which, again, is understandable because I am a year behind the other four students in my class).

However, I am taking an online class and right now I am very confused. I looked at my grades list to see how I was doing for the first two weeks. I saw one that kind of puzzled me. I got a 15 out of 50 points on a topic that was "What is fantasy?" That is the one I worked the hardest on and I believe I did quite well on that one. I got a 49/50 on the "What is science fiction?" discussion, but not the fantasy one? I am quite confused.

As you may know, Valentines Day is coming up next week. I don't think I will have a valentine this year, for the second year in a row. It's kind of sad, being alone on valentines day, but I think I will buy myself some chocolate and watch a chick flick. I think that will suffice.

I guess that's really it for now. If I have any updates, I will post them as soon as I can.

I have finally finished Pride and Prejudice. From what I have heard from others who have read the book, they think that it is very difficult to understand, and they did not like it for this reason. I, on the contrary, found it very easy to understand. In fact, Pride and Prejudice has become number one on my favorite book list. It has surpassed Harry Potter, although just by a little.

Off to work on reading the next book, and it is one that I am going to be thoroughly editing as well. I got to page one hundred and fifty before I hit the power button on my computer. I, of course being the absent-minded girl that I am, had not saved. Therefore I am back to page 53. I did succeed in my goal of 100 pages, it just has nothing to show for it. I guess it's back to work for me. Luckily, there weren't many edits to be done! I will not only complete these 100 pages once again, but work on the next 100 tomorrow. There probably will not be school again tomorrow, so that is what I will be doing instead.

I guess that's it for today.
