Dear World,
So we ended up seeing Taken instead of slum dog. It was brilliant! It was so so so so so so good. I thought I would HATE it, but the plot and story line were absolutely mind boggling! I think it is safe to say that this is probably the best movie I have seen in 2009.

Oh yes, yes indeed.

Sincerely,
Shea

Sweet pea, apple of my eye

dontstopdreamin1Dear World,
It’s been a while. I’ve been busy getting ready for lacrosse and the one acts, and just school in general.

We are competing for the one acts next weekend! I am excited, it is really coming along.

We had our lacrosse meeting the other day and I was a nominee for captain, *fingers crossed*!

TGIF ❤ Going to see Slum Dog Millionaire with some friends, it better be as good as they say it is.

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
So lately I have been thinking more and more about college. Some of my friends are like me, and don’t want to go to a state school, while others know that it is definitely for them. Either way, I am just so excited to meet new people and do new things. I will definitely miss my parents, but I think I’ll be having too much fun and learning so much to ever worry about it.

I still have a year and a half about, but obviously this is the year to really think about things.

It’d be nice to get a job this summer, because ever year I volunteer for a kids summer camp and don’t get paid. It is definitely worth it and I’ll continue to do it as much as possible, but it would be nice to have some money for myself, instead of always asking my parents. They just want me to focus on school during school time, and then in the summer and I can work.

It’s like my lacrosse coach says ‘you have the rest of your life to work, enjoy being young’.

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
So I have recently discovered my adoration for Lily Allen. Her new song ‘The Fear’ is quite amazing… and it just makes me think of all these things. The world has become a plastic barbie doll with a fake smile. And all the good things are hidden inside, for no one to see, or at least, this is how I see it.

Vacation is almost over. Today was a homework day for me, which isn’t stellar, but I got most of it done, except for a lab report in chemistry (don’t procrastinate Shea!). The truth is, I actually enjoy doing lab reports for some reason…

I was thinking about how things are this year compared to a year ago. I have learned so much, and though I was happy then, I am really happy now too. Change is good.

Sincerely,
Shea

my friend told me I looked like Norah Jones in this ❤

Dear World,
I am sooooooooooore. I have been doing weight lifting and cardio in my school gym for the past two mornings to get ready for lacrosse. I have been doing it for a few weeks now, but it keeps getting more and more intense.

I actually don’t mind getting up early during vacation. Well, earlier. I have been getting up around 7:30-8:30 every morning. It is strange because I always get up around 9:00 or 10:00 but I have more of the day this way.

Sincerely,
Shea

P.S. I got a new journal at borders and it is tres adorable! Very inspiring too.

Dear World,
Winter Carnival ended up being a ton of fun. I schooled everyone in dodgeball! Haha, at least when it was against other girls, and some boys. I watched my friends sumo wrestle and then we went to Subway for lunch (shh) came back and watched some of the Nightmare Before Christmas in the auditorium. Then we went to the pep rally that was tons and tons of fun. I have always loved pep rallies. WE schooled the seniors…

Yesterday I took my best friends to see He’s Just Not That Into You, with me for Valentine’s Day. It was actually really really hysterical, sweet, funny, cynical and any other word you could think of that makes of a genuine movie. I liked it a lot and am definitely buying it when it comes out on DVD. Something about it was so enthralling, and it made me feel different…a good different.

 

I really did not mind not having a valentine.  My best friend does, but my other friend (her older sister) does not.  I could see that it really upset her, and it go me thinking ‘why don’t I care that I don’t have one?’  The only logical answer I have is that I have always been valentine-less and I am healthy and happy, and that is all I can ask for right now.

I have woken up early for the first two mornings on vacation, but I am enjoying the sunrise.

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,

Tomorrow is winter carnival at my school.  Basically we don’t have any classes and we get to go sledding, watch movies, play guitar hero and wii, listen to bands, and have an indoor pep rally.  This is the second year that we have done it, and it was a ton of fun last year, although I didn’t get to do a lot of sledding, but I have to help out with it this year for NHS.

 

I have come to a realization today (although I have known it for a while).  After high school, there are going to be a lot of people that I never see again.  I know I am only a junior and have a whole year and a half left, but I look around and it sort of makes me a bit sad to see that in five, ten, fifteen years there will be people that I won’t be able to picture in my mind because I haven’t seen them in so long.  This is kind of making me cherish the moment even more.

 

So after tomorrow I am on February vacation.  Though it won’t be much of a vacation because I have TONS of lab reports, essays and other various forms of homework.  I do have one act rehearsal and we are doing it at a cafe to get a feel for the atmosphere!  I also am going to the school most mornings to work out and do the weight room.

 

Tonight is nice though, since I don’t have to do any work :].  I think I’ll cherish this for a while.

 

Sincerely,

Shea

Dear World,
Last night some friends and I watched The Queen, and it was so delightful! I love period dramas about royalty, but this was a bit more modernized, taking place in the 90’s. It has helped me understand the Queen a lot more.

I got my costume for the one act today. It is ok, not something I would wear, but at least it is a modern play, so I can use it again for something else.

Tomorrow we are doing the child lure prevention for youth group, I get to play a pedaphille, oh joy.

I am off to finish my book, Pack Up the Moon. It takes place in Ireland!

Sincerely,
Shea

p.s. I got new earrings today and they make me feel bold :).

Dear World,
Cars seem to be against my zen right now. First the sushi incident, then after an NHS meeting on monday my friend backed into another friend’s car. Then today on our way home from school, my friend hit a car who hit another car. Everyone was fine, but I had to slam on my breaks, and was so close to hitting them. Thank God and my luck stars that I did not.

Everything’s gonna be alright…

Sincerely,
Shea

Dear World,
Last night was an adventure to say the least.

To start off, we were on our way to sushi when, getting off the highway, my friend’s car stalled. She started it up again, and we were fine, until we stopped at a red light, then it stalled again. It kept up on this frenzy until eventually we stopped at a fire station where we went to the bathroom and called AAA. They took her car to our friend’s dad’s work, and then our other friend drove us to Fuji, the restaurant. We finally found parking and then went inside. Then, it was a 45 minute way. Finally we were seated and had a blast and I fell in love with calamari and seaweed salad <3.

Tonight is the superbowl which means my family and I are going to my friend’s house as we usually do. Except, the patriots aren’t in it, so that’s a bummer.

Obama wants the steelers to win, and all my friends want the cardinals to win. To be honest, I am there to watch the commercials…

Sincerely,
Shea
