March 16

I had bad luck today. No letters. No Facebookers. Math homework kicked my butt. Baha. OHhhh welll. Sarah's telling me about organizing her iPod. We are going to go watch American Idol in exactly 11 minutes and then we are driving around. Tootles!

Love you, friend. Hope you're okay.

I have decided I was born about 2 generations too late. I would have gotten along just fine in my grandparents' time, when horses were still an acceptable way to travel, when guys held the door and were supposed to be the ones to initiate conversation and ask the GIRL out instead of being wussies and making the girls ask THEM out(cough cough, guys. =P). I would have gotten along just fine in that time period. No internet would have driven me crazy, but then again I wouldn't have known such a thing would even exist, so it wouldn't have mattered. And that's that. Born 2 generations too late, methinks.

K, so I fail at life. =/ It has been such a crazy week that I've been forgetting about this silly little thing! I had a rant that I was going to put up last night, but now I don't remember what it was, so it must notta been a good one. =P HOWEVER, I DID ride yesterday, and I am SO excited!

My three year old, Viva, did AMAZING! I haven't ridden in ages, and she didn't offer to buck or ANYTHING. Humped her back on me once, and that was it. We have direction, we have movement, she even backed up! I was jazzed! Today, I am off to ride again, so hopefully it goes as well as it did yesterday!

So. I have decided that life is a little like driving in fog with the accelerator stuck to the floor. You can't see more than a couple feet ahead of you, but you just have to keep propelling forward and do the best you can. Except. We don't have to be able to see ahead in life; it's kind of important when driving, though. ;] Luckily, we've got a pretty awesome Pilot to keep us from crashing into something or straying too far from the main road. Thank God for that. =]

March 3

So, I'm going to give everyone a little snippet of my 100 Things About Me List, because I really don't know what else to write about at this point. Obviously, this isn't all of it, and the finished product is (hopefully) going to be organized into fun little sub-categories, like, "Things You Probably Already Knew About Me" and "Things That Most People Don't Know", ect. So anywhere. Here's my first few.

1. I love horses and dogs
2. I am deathly afraid of chickens and spiders
3. I love reading and creative writing
4. I love music, and play clarinet and piano, as well as sing
5. Nice pens make my day
6. Roses are my favorite flowers
7. I have a thing for nice hands and blue eyes
8. I am a total cuddle bug (hugs, snuggling, ect. touch is definitely my love language)
9. Bad grammar and spelling are a couple of my biggest pet peeves ever
10. I also hate when the girl is taller than the guy
11. And when people let the door slam closed in your face. I also find it incredibly hot when guys get the car door, or just door, for the girl. I love good manners!
12. I am a total night owl, but I also love the quiet early in the morning
13. I kinda want a big family. Liiike, 5-6 kids (max)
14. I am a hopeless romantic
15. I am loyal almost to a fault
16. I tend to trust too easily
17. Everyone says I have sloppy penmanship, but when I'm being neat, I actually kind of like my handwriting
18. I'm bad at letting go (Figure that one out for yourselves =P)
19. I have a horrible conscience and feel guilty about the stupidest stuff
20. I am a dreamer
21. I am a TOTAL small town girl; I LOATHE the city
22. I'm a Christian
23. I'm stubborn
24. If you get me mad enough, I'll probably cry; yeah, I cry when I'm angry
25. It's almost impossible to offend me
26. I tend to be very sarcastic
27. I am always surprised when I hear the word "pervert." Not so much because of its meaning; just something about the way it sounds; I can't really explain it!

Soo that's what I have so far. You'd be surprised! It's harder than you'd think! Anyone wanna try it with me? bahaha

March 2

Well. I've been thinking a lot lately about how much we know ourselves. Do we really? We never really think about our quirks; we just DO. How much do we really know about ourselves? So. That's been my project. I've started a list of 100 things about myself, so you'll probably be seeing little snippets of that over the next couple days.

Sorry the blogs have been really sucky, but I've been feeling pretty low, and thus not in much of a writing mood; bear with me, it will get better again, I promise!

Well. Most of today, after school gets out will be spent packing for divisionals!

Love you guys!!

I had this moment of panic when I couldn't remember whether I had put something up yesterday or not. hahaha. It's all good. Haven't missed a day yet. Although that may just change this weekend. Divisional tournies, bby. <3 Band is going and staying in Billings. At a hotel with a pool and a water slide. How wicked is that?! Mwahahahaha. I am so excited. You have noooo idea how stoked I am for this. ;] So I dunno if I'll be able to get posts up or not! But I will be having fun, no matter what, so bear with me! News when I get back, if I can't get stuff up.

Love you guys!

Good day so far. It's only half over. Went to Dickinson to the eye doctor. I go back to school in half an hour, after lunch gets over. Don't know what I'm going to do after that. Without basketball, I dunno how i'm gonna fill my time, but I'm sure I'll find SOMETHING to do. ;] Haha.

Well. Today, I think, will be a good day. I'm gonna go to Dickinson and go skating with Sarah and Rachel, and I don't have anything that I need to be doing. Uneventful, but good, day, I believe. ;]

February 20

It is late, and as soon as I get this up, I am going to bed. Wibaux boys beat Hysham today in a super close game, but then lost to St. Labre 103 to 80. (!!!!!!!!!!) It was crazy. That means we take fourth seat in district, but we still have a spot at divisionals (Thank goodness!)Ekalaka took the championship in a CLOSE game against Northern Cheyenne! It was pretty awesome! Totally worth it, and I was excited for them. I was really pulling for the Bulldogs. lol.

Anyway. That is the update.

Love you guys, and now I'm off to bed.

Wowza. Boys lost to Northern Cheyenne, so we play at 9:30 tomorrow morning. Bus leaves at 6:30 for band. =( Rawr. Just shoot me now.

But seriously? I hate how people are so focused on the outward appearance; as long as we can pull off the appearance of being content and happy and whatever it is the rest of the world wants us to be, they couldn't care less how we feel. I hate how it seems like one particular friend always gets the short end of the stick; I thought this place would be better; I thought they'd understand. It's supposed to be such a great place and have such a great ministry, but no, they're just like everyone else has been, and they don't understand. Not even a tiny bit.

Guess I should have known.

I'm sorry, Danny.

Praying for you, friend.

February 16

And once again, I nearly forgot to put a blog up. Ohhh well. It is Tuesday night. Tomorrow is the first game of the district tournaments. We play Melstone at 6:00 P.M. in Miles City. Our coach says that they're not any better than any of the other teams in the district, but we haven't played them, so it's hard to know what to expect. Then again, they haven't played us either, so it's equal that way. Anyway, I'll let you know what happens.

And if there's a time for me to miss putting up blogs, this will be it, because I'll be super usy. I'll probably put one up tomorrow morning before school. Hopefully. That'll be the only time I have time for anything. Haha.

I am exhausted. Went to bed way too late last night. And asthma attack today. Or whatever this stupid thing is. And now I can't stop coughing. It's lame. And I am tired. We ran cougar drill at practice today, though, which is basically my favorite thing everrr. Crazy as that sounds because it's lots of running. Anywho. I think I'ma go take a bath and then go to bed.

Good night world.

Valentine's Day. Wow. Pretty uneventful day. Went to church. Went to Dickinson with Sarah and saw Dear John and Valentine's Day. Disappointed with both of them. Hahaha. Dear John was sad and Valentine's Day was kinda stupid. Haha. Oh well. Now. It's almost 11 and it is definitely time for me to go to bed. Good night. <3

Well. Uneventful day, really. But a good day. I slept til 9:30 and then got up and lounged around. Then I went and got my hair cut. Pics up hopefully in the next couple of days. =D I REALLY like it, though. It's quite a bit shorter, about to my shoulders, with lots of layers. I was totally excited. Then I went and hung with Sarah and the coffee shop and got my espresso fix. =P Then came home and watched Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (hilariously funny) and then went to Beach and saw Leap Year. GREAT movie! I HIGHLY recommend it! It was absolutely adorable. Roads weren't bad at all, so I dunno what everyone was so worried about. Visibility certainly wasn't as nice as anyone would like, but it's not like you could only see a few feet in front of the hood of your car. Haha. All in all, it was a pretty good day.

Well, JV girls won their last game of the season! BAM! Haha, ohh yeah. lol. Unfortunately the varsity girls lost, but the boys won. Tournaments start next weekend. oh yeah. Bring it.

Sadly, it is now 9:40 on a Friday night and I have absolutely nothing to do. I really do not wanna go to bed. I'm actually really in a mood to go out and DO something. But. With who? That is the million dollar question. Sarah is at work; workaholic that she is. and it's still a little late for most people. Ohhhh well. Too bad, so sad.

Went to Ekalaka tonight. Girls lost, boys won. That means we may have to play into the tournament. I don't know for sure yet. It might depend on whether we beat Baker tomorrow. Hmm. Oh well. I played a whole 5 seconds, though. Woo Hoo! hahaha.

February 9

Hm. Uneventful day. But a good day. I'm reminded again how quickly things change and how inevitable it is no matter how much we wish we could just keep everything the same. People are going to walk away and sometimes you just have to love them enough to let them go. It's weird, though, when you're so used to telling them all the details of your life and you suddenly don't have anyone to tell it to. It's just one of many changes, and it will all even out in the end.

Erika Rose

February 8

Sometimes things don't go like we want, but in the end, it hardly matters. A week from now, a month from now, none of this is going to matter; it'll all just be old news. So I'm not gonna let the loss (to Beach, of all teams) get me down. It happens, and even the best teams lose out. All you can do is keep your chin up and go out to play; lay your best out on the floor, and at least walk away knowing that you gave it your all.

And the only attitude I can change is my own; I don't need to take the blame for a game that was lost because we beat ourselves, and I don't need to let it get me down, either. Next time, I will keep my chin up, and I will be a driving force all by myself regardless of whether the team is backing me up or not, because in the end, the only person I can improve is myself.

Thank God for parents with a good perspective. =)

AY yi yi. It is LATE and I seriously need to go to bed. Um, we had games in Jordan tonight. JV girls won by like, 4. I got a couple good rebounds, and got fouled, but missed all four of my free throws. AWFUL. On the other hand, I made a shot from just inside the three point line, which I was quite stoked about, needless to say. Haha. =D And I got to play varsity, because the girls were killing them, so JV would have gone in anyway, but one of the starters fouled out so I got to go in for her. It was pretty fantastic. Definitely a good night.

And now. To bed.

Good night, world.

I am watching Robin Hood: Men in Tights. It has to be one of the greatest movies ever. It is HILARIOUS and Carrie Elwes or whatever his name is is also ridiculously funny. And kind of good looking. He's the dude from Princess Bride for those of you who don't know.

And I am convinced to confess that yesterday, I saw a shirt that said "If I had a stick, would you leave me alone?" and I couldn't help totally wishing that it was mine. haha

February 3

So I've basically decided that I need to get my head out of the clouds. I've been thinking about it he least couple days, and I realized that my good friend Sarah is right, and I do tend to set myself up for heartache...Just not by trusting people too much.

It's more by building something up in my head; I'm a dreamer, and I play out these scenarios in my head, and even though I KNOW they won't happen, and I tell myself that repeatedly I'm still a little bit disappointed when it doesn't happen how I dreamed or doesn't happen at all. I make expectations of people, build them up in my head, and its not really fair.

So. Basically my goal is to get my head out of the clouds. Stick to the facts, don't expect more of people than they can give, stop setting myself up for disappointment.

In other news, the girls killed the Hysham Pirates, AND I got to play the last 3 minutes or so of the game. Boys lost, though. =( And we didn't get early lunch, so we all scarfed down our food at ridiculous rates, as usual. That was pretty much the day though.

Erika Rose

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

February 2

So. Today's barely even started as it's only 7:41 A.M. Buuut we have games in Hysham today, which is like, 180 miles, which means we're not going to get back until latelatelate, soo I'm putting this up now because I probably won't have time later. And that'd stink to miss two days. So yeah, I'm doing it now.

Basically having games today is gonna make it feel like a Friday, but that's ok. It should be a good day. The bus leaves at 12:45 which SHOULD mean we get early lunch. Hopefully, or we only get like, five or ten minutes to get through the line AND eat our food. Which would make me extremely angry.

So anyway, I guess that is my PREDICTION for the day. Haha. Letcha know how games go tomorrow.

So today was pretty great. Church. Dinner. Then off to Dickinson to chill with Rachel and go ice skating. I fell. Twice. IT was horrendously embarrassing the second time, because I wasn't even moving. However, it was oodles of fun. and that was pretty much my day.

And it's kind of weird to think that I've only been doing this blog a week. It feels like a long time. Haha. Oh well.

Good night, world!

January 29

So. I don't know why it hit me so hard tonight, but I realized just how totally blessed I am; my parents are AMAZING. I was thinking tonight about all the kids on the team who's parents weren't there, at the games in Terry tonight. And there were a lot.

Looking back, I don't think my parents have missed more than about 3 games in my whole career, and I've been playing since about 3rd grade. Every (I'm sure miserable) tournament, every junior high game every loss, every win, at least one if not both of my parents have been there for it, no matter where we were, Dickinson, Baker, home.

And they don't rag. the only thing I ever hear my parents say from the stands is encouraging. And they don't rag after the game, either. Dad tells me what I need to work on, gives me advice, I'll ask questions, and I know it's made me a better player, because Dad explains EVERYTHING to me. "What should I have done here?" "Well, there's only a couple things you really can do." They never tell me I screwed up, and I don't think I've ever heard them even say I've had a bad game, even when I felt like I played horribly.

Basically, my paernts are amazing, and I don't appreciate you guys nearly enough.

Love you, Momma and Daddy.

I Guess you WERE warned, huh?

Anyway, doctor didn't say much, but I did have to have my blood drawn, so they're gonna run some tests and such.

youth group was really good last night. We started the TrueU DVDs. They're along the same lines as the Truth Project, but geared more toward high school and college age students. I found it quite fascinating.

And. Well. Today's hardly started yet, but that's okay. I'm tired, but ohh well.

Seriously, this ilke, needs to go down in the world record book or something. Haha. We have SO much snow right now! It's ridiculous. I hardly remember the last time we had this much snow. I kinda ilke it, actually, insanely enough.

I'm starting to realize how absolutely pointless this whole endeavor is. Seriously, who's actually gonna get on here and read EVERY post that I put up, even though they're short? Haha. That's okay. It gives me some sort of satisfaction.

So this is, like, a month late, but that's okay. There's a bunch of people on Myspace doing a picture a day for 365 days. AKA a year. So, I decided that I was going to do something a little bit different. But not much. I'm going to a post every day for a full year, or, until January 23, 2011. So we'll see how it goes. We all know how rather flakey I am, but you love me anyway, right? haha. So anyway, welcome to my 365!
