New Stories :P

Well I have come up with a new story idea and I would like to share it with you.
This is just a quick write up of the story.
Again, I try very hard to not write stories that are about my life, so this has nothing to do with my feelings or any of the events in my life:

Sonia Rucker is a girl whose goal is to kiss a boy by the time she graduates from the 9th grade. This isnt an easy task as she is the girl on the sidelines who, as she thinks, nobody likes. She comes to find that has many admirers. Two boys stand out the most to her, Steph Deacan, the totally hot football player, and her best guy friend Joseph Candel, the not so hot Trumpet player. How she manages to get her clumbsy self in a relationship with Steph we will never know. But does he just like her becuase of superficial things, like the typical football player? Sonia finds herself in the difficult situation of choosing between her best friend and the most popular guy in school. Who would you pick?
Find out who Sonia picks in my newest novel (that I actually plan on finishing) called Day Dreaming.

I will be working on this from time to time, so who knows when it will be finished. I may or may not post it chapter by chapter. Just keep your eyes out for a post called Day Dreaming or Day Dreaming Ch. 1.

Unlike the 21st century's typical teen, I am not addicted to weed or any type of drugs. I dont smoke, I dont drink.
Im a new addict to Farmville.....
I used to have a farm so that my mom could use it to help her farm. I had tried it a couple times, but it never really stuck. This time I had the urge to get my farm back (after blocking it because I was sick of the updates). This time it stuck big time. I am currently writing this with anoher page reserved for facebook, so that I can switch back quickly to recieve gifts...
Hold on I need a nail....


I am building an orchard, so I needed the nail :)
Oh man see I am addicted!!

Oh and by the way:
I had a wonderful Christmas.
The night before I figured I would end up waking up at some ungodly hour, but I had to be woken up at 8 o' clock! We didnt have time to open out 'home' presents, so we went straight to Grandma and Grandpa's house. We met with the whole family and open the presents from each other. We had a huge christmas dinner and I ate way too much!! Im going to need to go on a diet :P
My cousin had to leave for work, so the rest of us hung out for a little while and then left.
Then I got to open the presents from my parents and other grandparents. I think I lucked out this year:)

I would love to here your Christmas Stories!! Post a comment below :)  

Repeat......Its different I swear :)

To be honest I was never much of a sucker for popular people.
Yes I am doing another blog on popularity. But Its different. I swear.
You have 3 types of people in this world.
The popular people:

The wannabies:

(joke :P)
And the people who could just care less:

Now I would call myself one of the people who doesnt care, but I wouldnt call myself a particular loser... depending on what your definition of loser is.
If you say:
A person with good grades is a loser?
Me=Yes, I have good grades.
A person who doesnt have any friends?
Me=No, I have a good handful of friends.
(some of the descriptions were given by the good people of the internet)
Someone who is socially, morally AND financially bankrupt?
Me=Not really, I have friends, I have morals, and I have enough money to live.
A person with no confidence?
Me=No, I have confidence.

So the consensus is (in my mind) That I am not a loser, in the bad sence of the word, yet I just dont care if I am popular.
At my school it is a little hard to tell exactly who the popular people are. Their are 3 main groups:
A's "group": It has alot of people in this group and it may be considered "the popular group".
Our "group": The smaller group consists of my friends and isnt the really popular group, but almost.
The "loners": The kids who dont have friends and keep to themselves. I personally think they should all meet and create thier own group :)
Any who that is my status on the popular scale
10= Most popular
5= Wannabie
1= Loner/Dont care

I am a 3:)
Talk to you guys later (See I spelled it out :))

Im not going to discuss politices with you. But I have been paying a of attention to this issue because of a class that I am in. And now this came up on the Ny times and I am....Im not saying political views but this intrigues me. 
Link to the original :)

Bid to Repeal ‘Don’t Ask’ Law Draws Support in Senate
 WASHINGTON — Embattled and left for near dead last week, the effort to allow gay men and lesbians to serve openly in the military gained significant momentum on Thursday with three more Republican Senators agreeing to vote to end the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.
The latest on President Obama, the new Congress and other news from Washington and around the nation. Join the discussion.
On Thursday evening, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader, said that the Senate would begin voting on the repeal on Saturday.
The repeal measure, approved Wednesday by the House, was originally tucked into a broader military policy bill, which failed when Senate Democrats found themselves unable to break a Republican filibuster last week. Returning quickly with a stand-alone bill seeking repeal, its supporters framed the new measure as a narrow civil rights matter and essentially challenged opponents to impede a vote.
By Thursday, Senator Susan Collins, the bill’s one Republican sponsor, had been joined by three other Republican senators — Scott P. Brown of Massachusetts, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Olympia J. Snowe of Maine — in supporting the measure.
“Senator Brown accepts the Pentagon’s recommendation to repeal the policy after proper preparations have been completed,” said Gail Gitcho, a spokeswoman for Mr. Brown. “If and when a clean repeal bill comes up for a vote, he will support it.”
Along with the backing of 54 Democrats and two independents, the Republican support is enough to push the measure to the necessary 60-vote threshold. Another Democrat who backs repeal, Ron Wyden of Oregon, announced Thursday that he would undergo surgery for prostate cancer on Monday and be absent for votes starting Friday. Only one Democrat, Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, has declined to support the measure.
The bill’s greatest obstacle is no longer votes, but the clock. The Senate is still working on other measures, including the New Start nuclear nonproliferation treaty before adjourning for Christmas, and Republicans have taken many steps to drag out action on those bills.
“All that will stop that repeal is a totally unacceptable refusal to bring our measure up in a timely way,” said Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut, who pursued the stand-alone legislation with Ms. Collins.
Mr. Reid has threatened to reconvene after the holiday to finish remaining business before the new Congress is sworn in on Jan. 5. At that time Republicans will have more power in the Senate and will hold the majority in the House.
Two other Democratic priorities — a bill that would provide medical benefits for workers and others exposed to toxic materials at ground zero and an immigration bill that would have an impact on some children — seem doomed. The fact that they have fallen by the wayside could open up time to debate “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
But hurdles remain for the bill. Although Mr. Reid will try to avoid it, Republicans could call for amendments, which would delay a vote. Further, White House officials and Mr. Lieberman have suggested that some Republicans are threatening to block the New Start treaty if the military repeal goes forward. Such a maneuver “takes us way back to an earlier day when people used to do things like that to stop civil rights laws from passing,” Mr. Lieberman said.
The journey of the repeal measure was winding and unexpected. Supporters initially thought they could improve its chances by placing it into a large policy bill that provided raises for service members, among other things, that senators would never reject. That proved a poor calculation.
Turning the measure into a stand-alone bill put a spotlight on senators who had rejected the earlier measure because of procedural objections, creating a potential embarrassment for “no” voters.
“What was once considered vulnerability is now a huge driving force that created the momentum that we now have,” said Fred Sainz, a spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign.

NY Times.....

Recently I have been really into reading the NY Times. In fact, on my laptop the first favorite listed on the bar is "The New York Times" website.
Recently in Health news:
Phys Ed: Do Energy Drinks Improve Athletic Performance?
They talk about the recall on all Four Loco drinks (the new 'ish' alcohol and caffeine laced energy drink). They were recalled because they have been ruled 'unsafe' by the Food and Drug Administration. This brought up the question of what energy drink are safe? What energy drinks should remain on the shelves?

Then they talk about the fact that Energy drinks are NOT sports drinks and how they are loaded with sugar. I personally do not enjoys energy drinks, but I have many friends who do and now I know why they become extremely hyper after have a sip! :]
So the doctor whom they interviewed said that he wouldnt recommend Energy Drinks as a replacement for Sports drinks. 
If you are as interested as is was you can visit this link to read the entire article:]

More Health news:
Popcorn's Dark Secret
Popcorn has been found to contain very large amounts of calories, salt, and fat.
A large tub of popcorn at Regal Cinemas, for example, holds 20 cups of popcorn and has 1,200 calories, 980 milligrams of sodium and 60 grams of saturated fat. Adding just a tablespoon of butter adds 130 calories. And do not forget that it comes with free refills.(Straight from the artical)
Lots of people say that popcorn is healthy but the way that our movie theaters make is (with added butter and salt) makes it worse.
To see the full article and the results of the test on two other popular theaters see:

Hope you found that just as interesting as I did!
Time to publish :]

Thank you for being amazing, mum!! :]

As a quick explanation of my title: there is a commercial on the radio that says 'Thank you for being the most amazing' and after it said that I said Mum. She said that I never say that and that I wouldnt. So now here is me saying my mum is the most amazing. With an exclamation point. Actually 2 explanation points. :]

Now to correct a few things in my last post: I said that we got up on Wednesday and went to my grandparents house for Thanksgiving when actually Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday. So we actually went on Thursday.
