You don’t even know how many things I got wrong….. I was so wrong about this summer and anybody who had anything to do with it, that it surprises even me sometimes. I’m usually right about these things too. Anyways, it all started when my brother came up here for the summer and that changed my whole life around in itself but, that wasn’t it and it didn’t end there. Things started to change like I’d never known they could change before. Just in preparation for our up-and-coming first day of school there were things that I wans’t even prepared for. By this time my brother had officially decided to stay in Colorado so, that was all settled and we would once again be going to the same school…
Summer 2008 August 4, 2008
Well, let me just say that it’s June 3rd, 2008 and summer is off to a great start. Even though last year I didn’t come on here most of the summer I plan on giving you full coverage of all of the crazy things that go on in the Jones household. First, my brother who came up here for Christmas is coming…..That was what I started a few weeks ago when I suddenly had to get off of the computer and let me tell you, that was going to be a great post (if I could remember any of it). Anyways, my brother’s already here and has been here for a couple of weeks now and whatever else I had to say will just have to wait because like I said, I can’t remember what it was. More recently, I’ve been preparing for my birthday which is next Monday (Whoop Whoop!) and it’s going to be a great one considering that last year was my best one EVER and that’s quite a stretch for me. That’s just about all that’s been going on other than my brother being here and him trying to conform or rather be the opposite of all of us, whatever that means.
Let’s Just Say….. May 6, 2008
I know that I haven’t been on here in awhile but, there’s something that I have to address.
I’m so tired of people saying that Miley Cyrus is the next Britney Spears. Even so, Britney Spears is just another person that made a few mistakes that people publicized (how would you feel if all of your mistakes were publicized?), she’s human! Let’s just get right down to it. It’s not my usual thing to post about celebrities but, this is something that I feel I’ve got to do in order to give people some perspective. Everybody knows how Miley Cyrus has been in the news recently for MORE pictures but what they think is even worse than that is those infamous Vanity Fair photos that have everyone talking. Anyways, there are more important things to think about than pictures that Miley Cyrus is taking, that are remarkably like pictures that just abouut every-other teen in America takes and puts on Myspace, I mean isn’t that what all of the hub bub is really about? The fact that she’s a role model for young girls everywhere? Well, maybe she is but, I think that parents should be more concerned with what their children are doing and what other influences they have in their lives rather than being concerned with what they see on tv. What is more upsetting is that all of these adults are judging her and her parents (like their kids haven’t made any mistakes or like they as parents have never made mistakes) and yet I still haven’t heard any kids complain, I mean she was fully clothed and even though it was “suggestive” what isn’t? Atleast she did it for a magazine and not just because she wanted to take a picture of herself with barely any clothes on and as to this being a plot to sell magazines I don’t really have anything to say because as a magazine freak and collector I see this magazine all the time and I think seriously about buying it but I never do and when I heard about the picture I knew I just had to have it. I, of course, buy into these things all the time and I don’t care what anybody says these photos are going to go down in history as just one of those things that happens when child stars are ready to grow up and people won’t let them (like Britney Spear’s Rollingstone photos and Christina Aguilera’s Moulin Rouge days). Let’s just say that I’m going to buy the magazine even though I’ve always thought of it as an old lady magazine (even though I’ve never actually opened it up) but, it could end up being something that I spend my magazine money on. Who knows. People just need to be more honest and stop idolizing and letting their kids idolize people just becasue their on tv,and in the words of Miley Cyrus “Nobody’s Perfect” (actually paying attention to the lyrics of the songs and not just who’s singing them might be helpful). That’s all I’ve got to say about that. I just love the perfect world we live in and the perfect people that live in it…………..whatever.
Mr.Magoriums Wonder Imporium April 10, 2008
O.k. it’s not like all I ever do is sit around watching movies but, that’s what I’d like to do because writing reviews about them is cool. As you may know, we watched Mr. Magoriums Wonder Imporium and it was great, I think it’s another one of those movies that get over-looked like, oh, I don’t know. Anways, the kids seemed to enjoy it and it made sense to me so, I thought it’d make a good movie to review. It was crazy though because since everybody’s been working so hard it’s been even harder to get together to watch movies especially since that was all we used to do. Even though the kids kind of played around like they always do when they watch the movie before everyone else does it turned out to be a pretty good experience and it’s a movie I’ll definetely watch again. From what I’ve heard, most people liked it and thought it was an extremely good movie. I just kind of wonder what the kids really thought of it though, I mean have you ever watched a movie and completely disliked it but, for some odd reason your parents did? That is another one of the mysteries of this little planet we call Earth. Here’s a little sneek peek…..
O.k. so…… March 12, 2008
Well, now that everyting has been established, let me just say that I am seriously trying to come up with a reason not to publish on this blog all the time and considering that no excuse has come up, I guess I’m gonna have to follow through. Anyways,things have been going great around here and other than a few minor changes nothing really big has happened since my last post which isn’t so bad. Everything juse seems to flow and only get better so, I guess that’s good because I don’t think I could take another upheaval. More importantly it seems like everyone is starting s new job next week including my mother who has decided not to get into the cookie biz and just get another job and work at Jenny Craig on the weekends. Which the way I see it just needs to make her happy, considering that she’ll be working 7 days a week (or rather 28 days straight)for now and I just don’t like the idea (if it’s about the money) of her working all the time, being tired and not being able to enjoy the money that she’s worked so hard for. Other than that my dad’s going to the day shift which means that I’ll be here with the kids all day (I’ve got to prepare myself for that,whoo just thinkin about it) an my aunt got a new job which is cool. That’s all out of the way and it’ll just be a lot of people working really hard for about the next month and constant changes that will be for the better. I guess I’d better being doing something too. Like PaRtaYYY!!!!
By the way I don’t really support the lyrics of this song or wild teen partying, I just love the song. Yes, it was on the Apple commercial.
Everything’s Changing February 22, 2008
This year (so far) has been one of constant change and things completely out-of-the-ordinary. There are those things that you welcome and those things that make you kinda sad. For one we’ve started getting comfortable in our house and really enjoying it which is great, because, I mean after a year you’d think you’d already be comfortable right? That wasn’t exactly the case, because, we simply have been thinking about a bigger house since we’ve been living here, especially me considering that my room isn’t as big as it could be. On top of that money has been rolling in and my mom’s starting a new business although,a few set backs might have caused some doubts she’s doing great. I’ve been able to purchase things and receive things that I’ve been wanting to get for a long time. Anyways, I think that every thing’s been fine and the holidays have done us well, but, I definitely write about that later. One of the MOST IMPORTANT changes though is that one of the Jones families have moved to Virginia, you know the ones that I referred to as”them” ( also the ones that got us to come here)before? Well, let me just set that record straight. They are not a “THEM” they are my family and the things that I wrote back then (which I gave post passwords to protect the innocent and the integrity of the posts) were simply the ramblings of a self-obsessed, over-spiritual teenage girl who had too much time on her hands. Now that we’ve got that straight letus just say that all is well, apologies have been made, we’re cool, and I’ll tell you more about that later. Also for the record,I know that I’ve been posting like I should and so you don’t really know all that much about my life right now. I assure you that I am going to make this blog top priority ( I know I’ve said that before) and I’m OFFICIALLY naming it Blog of The Month (because I love it), which means that it will be the main blog that I’ll be paying attention to ( so that I can get my people back, sorry for the delay) and will spend less time on my fashion blog. It is true in fact that I have been working on a lot of posts that I haven’t been able to finish or publish right away because they correspond with other posts. That’s that.
Alvin And The Chipmunks The Movie January 31, 2008
Today, we went to see Alvin And The Chipmunks. That movie was the bomb! If you loved them before this movie makes you love them even more. It was so hilarious! The story line was great, they had the perfect cast (including Justin Long and Jesse McCartney)and the music was on point. Of course going to the movies with my family is always interesting. Take for instance when we went to see Shrek The Third the kids wasted a soda in my lap (good thing I was wearing a skirt and it dried before the movie was over). The extremely interesting thing is that Lolo managed to be eating popcorn (from where I don’t know), switch seats ten times, eat at a different table, and Justin also managed chill in his seat as if he was at home. Other than the usual craziness of going to eat at Flatiron and seeing a movie, we had a really great time.
