Summer '09.

This summer, now that its practically over and i'm starting school in 3 days, hasn't been that bad after all. In the beginning of the summer I took a few swimming lessons. At the end of June I spent some time at girls camp (I was a CC this year), but had to leave a day, more like night..(ugh.. i'm talking I was supposed to leave at like 8 that thursday night but I ended up leaving at 2 in the morning...) early so I could see the play The Color Purple. It was great! For the rest of July I didn't really do much. But I did go to a Jonas Brothers concert, and it was AMAZING. My sister and I had REALLY close seats. There was this catwalk on the stage and we were at the very end of it. So everytime they walked down it we held out our hands so they could touch it. It was an amazing concert. I hung out with friends, went to the pool a couple times, and at that point I thought my summer was lame. That's because the real fun didn't start until August.

My family and I ended up going to Disney World! It was so much fun! we met so many characters and rode on rides. We stayed at this amazing resort that we always stay at. It's called the Polynesian resort and it is always great. It's hawiian themed and there's like this beach and volcano pool that is so great. We got access to all the 4 theme parks plus water parks. At Animal Kingdom, my sister and I rode this rollercoaster called "EXPEDITION EVEREST" and it was insane. It takes you up REALLY HIGH and you think it's gonna drop you, but it doesn't. You go to this track that looks bitten off by the Yetti, then you go backwards in the DARK! it was insane!! Then you finally go forward and oh man! I would pay good money to ride that again. It was just so intense for a non-upsidown roller. Then there's this one water park that I LOVED that was called Typhoon Lagoon. They had a wave that literally went rose 6 feet and knocked everything out of its path. I got knocked over by that big thing so many times and it NEVER got old :). Then it started storming and that was the end of that. The only thing i didn't really like about Florida was the weather. There normal weather is sunny in the morning until around 12 p.m. and then rain/thunderstorms starting at 2 until night fall. Which is kind of lame if someone wants to go there to tan. They'd have to do it in the morning or forget it, because you can't tan once the rain is gone, ITS DARK. By the time the week was over... I remember having a strong dislike for the Magic Kingdom and how many people were there. I've never seen so many strollers in my life. I feel like some people just got them so they could jam them into slow walking people's heels. That's what happened to me at least. My mom and I had taken our spots of this parade that comes down main street everyday. And the crowds grab their spots on the edge of sidewalks fast. So my mom and I were sitting there for an hour till the parade started and I stand up in the spot i was sitting in when the parade was just beginning, and then SOME LADY thinks she can come in with her like i don't know... ten year old child and steal my spot after waiting for an hour? I DONT THINK SO! but she does! she had some NERVE! and by that last day i was annoyed enough with all the little babies. So this other lady, who i'm guessing was with this lady that totally sat where i was standing, was trying to get passed me by her friend, and I, being the kind person I am (note the sarcasm), blocked her way through. There was no way I letting this lady just push her way into my spot after i've been saving it for an HOUR. HA! What I hated also was how this lady was taking pictures of the floats down the street and getting in my way when the float ends up coming right in front of us! I was like REALLY? But minus that annoying spot, the trip was great.

Once I got back from Disney World, I was pretty upset that summer was practically over. I felt like my summer had finally just started.

I haven't even started my summer reading yet. But I got a lot of shopping done. Not school supplies but outfit supplies ;) hehe. This school year hopefully will be great. I really want to be on top of things this year unlike the past, because THIS IS IT! I'll have to start applying for school's and who knows what i'll get into. Hopefully its a school I will end up loving though.
