I'm so scattered

Oh, the holidays. Who loves the holidays? *raises hand*

I don't know. It's always this time of year when everything seems all...beautiful and it seems to fit together and stuff. Even if things aren't going well, there's always this little bit of magic, and...I don't know.

Jason and I are actually alright now...I think. I don't know what I'm going to do about Mom and Dad, but I plan to spend most of Christmas either with Sean or working in a soup kitchen, so I'll be alright.

I got a rather strange phone call from Arielle today. I need to call her back. I think it concerns her sister, but I swear I heard "Hannah" instead of "Lauren." And I don't deal with that Hazel sister. Lord.

My family's not huge on holiday decorations, so I went ahead and set up the tree (we have a white theme going on - snowflakes and doves and stuff), but I set up my pink Christmas tree in my room with all my sparkly decorations (snowflake chains...I go old school :P). And all month I've been helping people out with their decorations. I have to keep all this holiday weight off somehow, right? I could just not eat, but I mean...come on...pie, truffles, chocolate, milkshakes!!! :P And climbing all over roofs definitely does the trick. I try to keep myself busy during the holidays to keep my mind off the bad stuff. I think that the holidays are a time to focus on the good stuff...blessings.

But it's kind of hard to do (I admit), when life starts throwing you all this stuff. Remember when you were little when everything just fell into place? As you grow up, you slowly begin to realize how freaking close you get to everything falling apart. And it happens over and over and over again. And you begin to realize what a close call life really is. You get this sense of faith - that even though you live on the edge, stuff comes together anyway.

I'm starting to think my sense of faith has been misplaced. Don't tell anyone.

Everyone have a good holiday!!!

Your Beauty Element is Water

Feminine and dreamy, your beauty style is classic and very vintage.
But you never look out of style! You have a way of making classic looks modern again.


You Need Some Black in Your Life

Black will make you feel powerful, in control, and not bound to what other people think of you.
And with a little black, you will project a aura of mystery, rebellion, and dominance.
If you want people to respect you, you've got to get a little black in your life!

For extra punch: Combine black with orange or red

The downside of black: People won't be able to "read" you - and may perceive you as more aggressive than you actually are

The consequences of more black in your life:

You'll become a figure of intrigue and speculation
You'll be better prepared for life's unknown path
You'll rest better and free yourself of expectations


Your Rising Sign is Sagittarius

Happy and upbeat, you are always optimistic.
Even when you're in a bad mood, people find you friendly.

On the flip side, you're very restless and bored easily.
You've been known to pick fights just for the fun of it.

You've got a great sense of humor and a quirky outlook on life.
Aggressive, wild, and unconventional, no one knows what you're going to do next.

Because these things are fun, and we are (once again) doing nothing in French. I love this class. Regina's way too nice. Or clueless. Or a beautiful combination of both.

And, because Thanksgiving is coming up...


Which Pie Are You

I lean on the wall, there for us

There's only two more days of school until Thanksgiving break! I'm really excited. I'm not sure what our plans are, but I'm really glad I'm out of school (well, not TOO glad, because I'm cut out of the Ring for a few days, but I have my phone...I'll manage).

I met Lauren, Arielle's little sister (not Hannah...the other younger sister) today. She's very different from her sister. For one thing, she's a brunette (like a dark, espresso-type of brunette). And she's shy...sweet girl.

Not that I have anything against Arielle. I like her. It's just that...well, the girl's got her hair dyed purple this month, and you can mark my words (I know you always do :D) that she's going to dye it again for December. Arielle's anything but shy (hello, she dared to dance off with BRIDGET...that's saying something), and...I may have spoken too quickly. Arielle is sweet...just in a different way. With Lauren, you don't have to get through twenty walls to get to who she is as a person. It's just all out there already, which makes her much easier to talk to.

Anyway, the reason I was with her today was that one of our dogs, Brenda, (we were volunteering at this animal shelter) had been sick for a while, and they had to put her to sleep. Lauren had gotten really attatched to her, and she wanted to stay for the procedure. Alone. Which, I've been to these things before. It's not something you go through on your own. So I decided to stay with her. It's not saying much...I can't deal with ANYTHING dying, especically a dog. But I figured at least someone staying with her might make it a little better.

She told me afterwords that she used to have a dog named Splash. One day, she woke up and Splash was gone. Her parents told her that she'd run away, but Arielle told her later that they'd taken the dog away (they're not huge fans of dogs). Anyway, it just sucks. So I sat there with her for a while.

Anyway, I've got a bunch of memes from sparklepop777:

And...my letter to Santa. :P

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last week I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points). In August I gave krystal_morning a life-saving blood transfusion (50 points). Last Wednesday I turned storm_splash in for eating carbs (3 points). Last Saturday I ate my brussel sprouts (1 points). Last Monday I stole sparklepop777's purse (-30 points).

Overall, I've been nice (43 points). For Christmas I deserve a shiny red ball!

Sincerely,
riverofglass

So I got stamped at gossipgirlstamp. It's a pretty cool community. If you're a Gossip Girl fan or if you're just curious to see who you are, you should totally join.



As you can see, I'm Jenny. :D I like her. She's so resourceful!

If you haven't heard "Say It's Possible" yet, I totally suggest you hear it somehow. It's amazing - angsty but not annoying - and featured on Private Practice, naturally. :D
