i haven’t posted here in a long time. not quite sure why,  just couldn’t be bothered to i suppose. well, since i last updated this, i’ve started high school! which has been absolutley fantastic! i am taking..[ apart from the usual math, history science and english] choir, theatre, french,and adventures in outdoor education. i LOVE all my classes, except science, which is usually my favorite subject. i signed up for IPC (integrated physics and chimistry) but they don’t offer it to freshman this year, which sucks terribly. other than that, my high school 3 weeks of high school have been near to picture perfect. i’ve gotten to all my classes on time, kept up with schoolwork, performed at a pep rally [!!] found someone to sit with at lunch each day etc… i love my teachers also. mr. Powell [choir] and Mrs.zinck & Mrs.Light [theatre] are my favorite so far. they make the class so lively and fun, i get along with them very well, and enjoy the classes they teach very much.

on a more depressing note… my sister is in the hospital. she is pregnant and lives in kansas and was recentley put on bed rest. during a baby checkup, her blood pressure got very high and she was moved to a room where they could monitor her and baby Mathias. shortly after arriving at the hospital, the tornado sirens began to go off, the doctors rushed and moved all of the patients out into the interior hallway to try and wade out the storm. i do not know much more than that.

also, my dad just got a job. which is absolutley amazing. he is working at some computer company doing legal work and contract management, he was told there may be some travel involved, which he absolutley loves to do. the building is about 45 minutes away from our house [down the street from medevil times in arlington [?]. not too much of a commute, but still a commute nontheless. this job has been a complete blessing. we have been taken care of so well, by the members of gateway church, and my grandmother. both have helped us trmendously numerous times with financial troubles.

oh and also, hurricane ike is fast approaching, it is predictied to be in the dfw metroplex within 24 hours [or about three in the afternoon saturday] as i got out of school today, having been released from the pep rally, i looked to the southern sky to see a big black wall of storms coming straight for us. i am quite excited i must say. i love storms and i hope we get some nasty ones [with no potential damaging winds or tornadoes of course] just enough for it to rain and or hail and bring black skies. or just enough that i can go to sleep with the soothing lullaby of the storm.

i think it is time to get ready for bed and read. writing this has really inspired me to jounal or blog alot more, which i think i will do.

goodnight for now ~JULIA
