19 is for Dix-Neuf!

Howdy Partner,


You know whats funny. Okay, well maybe it's not that funny. I am nineteen years old. I'll be twenty in September. It feels so weird, it's so strange. I can't seem to get over it. Twenty - that's a huge step sort of. I mean just think about it. Then again Twenty-one is supposed to be a huge ordeal or too.

I've been very busy today. I was out most of the day cleaning a empty house. Now I'm really tired. I'm so not in the mood to post. I need to take a shower. I feel all dirty from cleeaning that house. Well actually it was a three bedroom apartment not a house. It was pretty nice. But the people who painted it did a horrible job. It sure had a lot of dust.

I'm making a list of games I want to buy for my PS3. I'm going to ask for Gamestop Gift Cards. I like shopping there for all my gaming needs. Whenever I walk into Gamestop, I like to think I'm different because some girls are too girly to be seen in a store like that.  It'…

Salve,

Is it sad if your getting tired of your own idea? Yes everyone, I am getting sick of looking up ways to say hello in other languages that I can't even pronounce. I don't even think it takes me that long to find the certain language but half the time I can't remember which language I used and which I haven't. Hmm, I think that's sort of sad.  But if you get bored with something then does it mean that that idea wasn't really that great after all?

Tomorrow morning I am leaving the house around 9:30ish to go clean another house. It's supposed to be a real easy clean, the worst part will be the oven. But once I get there I will spray it down before I start and that will be my last thing to do before I leave other than mopping the floors and such. I absolutely hate mopping. It really sucks and I think I suck at it. I may like to clean but moping isn't really my forte. I am still trying to figure out how I will finish my school and chores tomorrow. I…

Bonjour,

I know, I know, I've already used Bonjour a thousands time but I have to omit something. I love French. It's kind of like Spanish but better... Especially if you took Spanish for two years because you guidance counselor told you it would look good for college to have one language, well I hated Spanish so I didn't force it down my throat like some of my very close friends back in PA did. Guys, I love you and I miss you all so much. I wish I could come home soon to visit.I wonder if I like the french language so much because it's so suppose to be romantic or something. I have to omit, deep down, I like romantic things. I believe that any fairytale should have a love story, which most do by the way. But I'm still trying to figure out my love life and how to get it to where I want to be without rushing into it, like that mistake I did before. I've made plenty of ugly mistakes when it comes down to it. Dated a guy I had no feelings for(who by the way I swea…

16 is for Seize!

Bok,

I played my  PS3 for two straight hours last night and then again this morning. I love my PS3. It's just completely awesome. I need to buy a few new games because it's always nice to have new games. I really need to work that into the budget somehow.

Have you ever felt really stressed, angry, pissed off, all of the above? Well imagine having someone ask you to do something that seems kind of weird. I know I shouldn't let my anger out but I can't tell the person that I'm upset with them. If I do, I'm afraid of the consequences. Oh, never mind. I don't expect people to understand. I wonder if I am truly happy here. I wonder if I should start questioning everything I am because I have to lock half of who I am up in a bottomless pitt. It just doesn't seem right.

So I just did the chores I was "assigned to do". Without my consent may I add. I like to be asked personally before someone just assumes that I can do it. Okay, I shouldn't be th…

15 is for Quinze!

Halo,


I played for two hours on my PS3 this morning. I love Tomb Raider: Underworld. Apparently they are making two new games this year for Tomb Raider. One that takes place in Japan and Lara Croft is twenty-one and the other is a three pack of previous games; Tomb Raider Legend, Tomb Raider Anniversary, and Tomb Raider Underworld (which I already own). I'm totally going to invest in that game. I'm so excited, I can't wait. I mean you just don't know how excited I really am about this game. This is totally off subject but I also played a demo for Folklore. I might buy it. I'm not sure. It's defiantly a interesting game at least.

I also found out that the creators of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is coming out with a third installment of the game. It's called Uncharted 3; Drake's Deception. It's takes place before Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. It's going to be amazing. I'm so freaking excited. I love the Unc…

14 is for Quatorze!

здраво,

Today was interesting. Well I guess you could call it what you like but it was interesting to me. The day started out kind of slow. I woke up two hours later than I wanted to and then the worst part is I didn't go on a walk like I usually do every morning. I don't know. As the day went on, it became frantic and rushed. I don't particularly like it when days get like this. But I didn't let the stress overwhelm me.

I'm so hungry, I think my stomach is trying to eat itself. I haven't eaten dinner yet. Hmm, I wonder what we are having. I hope it's good whatever it is.

I almost had a babysitting job set up for tomorrow. The woman needed a babysitter to watch over her son while her husband had to be dropped off at college(by the babysitter) and while she was at work. If I would of had my driver's license and a car I would have jumped for the chance. I'm glad she will consider me for the other babysitting job she needs help with in February. I real…

13 is for Treize!

Salam,

Good morning everyone. I think today is a really great day. I woke up way off schedule but I managed to get everything I wanted to get done this morning. I don't have very much time to complete this post so I got to type faster.

I  am a busy little bee. I've been filling out applications everyday. Last night I was attempting to fill out an application way too late at night and decided it would be better to do them today instead. I feel like such a slacker. I'm not one though. I've been trying very hard to get a job, filling out five applications a day except yesterday because of poor judgment and planning. I'm normally pretty good with planning and organization. So I don't know what happened yesterday.

I have been racing to get things done. I have my school work (home schooling), plus my daily chore chart(which I need to fill out), and my reading list which I already know won't be finished by the end of this year. Now, I'm focusing on a job that…

Ello,


I have five minutes to get his posted. I fear it will be another short one. So baiscily I'm struggling to find a means of income for all my expences which include college, trying to complete my second application of the day because these suckers take longer than you would think, and trying to do more reseacrh on the college I plan to attend, it's online so I don't know if attend is the right word. Oh, you can't forget the fact that I'm also trying to read my books that I have on that Must Read List of 2011. Well if I don't hurry up and post, my step d will win and we can't have that now can we. Nope didn't think so.

Well Goodnight Everyone.
Love Britt

P.S. That is the French way people say hello when they pick up the phone. Sorry for any spelling mistakes.

11 is for Onze!

Pryvitannie,

Unfortunately this post is going to be very short. I feel really stressed or maybe that's just an excuse for my rudeness. I don't know why I get like this. I have a plan but I still feel so stressed. I don't know why though. I honestly couldn't tell you. I feel like a horrible friend. I shouldn't be snippy with my best friend forever.

Well that's all I got for today. Good Night!
Love Britt
<3

P.S. The Hello of the Day is in Belarusian. That's right man.

Barev Dzez,

Today was an awesome day. I got rid of some of my stir craziness that has been consuming me lately and celebrated my best best friend's birthday. My best friend Amanda turned eighteen today and we decided to celebrate by going to the Celtic Festival, the Renaissance Festival, and finally we went to see Tangled at the Regal movie theater.I planned the whole Tangled movie idea because I wanted to do something special for my best friend. She doesn't see her friends all the time and so I wanted to secretly invite her friends to see a movie. I thought it was pretty cool and her friends were pretty cool and I enjoyed talking to them. We all got along really well. Tangled is a hilarious movie and I suggest that everyone should check it out.

The Celtic Festival wasn't the greatest but while we were leaving I saw a sign for a Masquerade Ball that's being held somewhere in Fort Myers. I intend to find out more about. See if there's a age limit. I want to go. It s…

9 is for Neuf?

Hello,

Well today sucked. I don't feel like talking much about it so I'm basicly going to only say a few things. I realized I made a big mistake letting someone slip out of my life and it probably won't ever be the same. My friends Birthday is tomorrow, I have it all planned out. I'm telling you I could be a personal assistant or one of those people who plans out other peoples lives. I think I'd be pretty good at that, since I like lists and what not. Also I tried to help my friend by telling her she shouldn't get a credit card. It ended badly. She's going to get the card and use it and pay it off. I just hope she realizes that there are other ways of building your credit score. Unfounantely if I knew how that would help, because I was raised to believe that the only way to have good credit was to have a credit care but I've found out that's not the case. I don't want to mess up my life. I've already had enough bad experiences with a credit …

8 is for Huit!

Annyeonghaseyo,

So I think my days just keep getting better and better. I rode the bus up to Riverdale Public Library and I talked to the Volunteer Coordinator about volunteering there. She asked me all types of questions like "Was I able to help people with the computer?, Did I have any experience with children?, What days would I be available?, and What time would I be available to come in to start volunteering?". I was asked a lot more questions but those are the only ones I remember. Then she told me that the last young person that they had volunteer for them, got a job at the library. So who knows, maybe I'll be a librarian. I could totally see it. I could wear my fake glasses and work at the library and let my bookworm self come full circle. I thought about it and if they offer me a job, I'm going to accept it. I think it would be a good place for me to start. But in the meantime I'm going to keep applying five times a day until I can find a job.

I'm so…

7 is for Sept!

Nǐ hǎo,

So today was a pretty busy day. I went up to the Publix to buy some things that I desperately needed. I stopped in at the Wachovia Bank and opened a Student Checking Account. Wow, I don't know what else to say. I'm kind of tired and I have other things on my mind right now.

I've decided that if I'm going to Publix, I'm going to get there by bike. I like biking. It's great exercise and a lot of fun. If I'm going up to Winn-Dixie howerer, I'll just take the bus. It's a lot easier since the sidewalk doesn't go all the way up there. So I wouldn't be able to get there by bike if I wanted to, unless I went the back way, which takes too long. Lets just say I had a bad experience with the back way the last time I took it.

So I've been doing what I've been doing everyday now. I looked for more places to apply at. Surprisingly, I'm finding that most of the places I looked at today were either "print and fill out an application…

6 is for Six!

Kon'nichiwa,


Today was an awesome day. Even if I wasn't successful in finding a job. I rode the bus up to the Library. I went in and they have these things that do all the work for you. You place your card under the scanner and it scans your card. Then you just sit each book on this little gray square and it automatically knows which book you placed there and to then remove it. Did you know that this is as advanced as it gets for Florida? I mean we don't even have self-checkout like we do in Pennsylvania. Okay, I heard if you go farther North towards Crystal River, apparently that they have self-checkout but not here. I think that's kind of sad. I thought our technology would be the same no matter where you go, I guess I was wrong.Oh by the way, I made it home by using the bus. It's easier than I thought.

So I have completed almost all five of today's applications. I made up this agreement goal with Sue that I would fill out five applications every day until I …

5 is for Cinq!

Përshëndetje,

Well, today was a pretty good day if I do say so myself. I completed all my chores and now I am doing online job applications for different stores. I have also been checking each stores address on Trip Planner and Google Maps. Trip Planner allows me to see which stores I can get to by bus. No matter how many transfers I may have to go through. I'm not looking forward to doing my first transfer. But I won't be comfortable with it until I do it. I say once I've done five or six bus rides on the bus then I'll be ready to do my first transfer. I think.

 Did you know that most store applications are online now? I've only come across two that aren't. So far I have done three job applications. My goal is to complete four to five a day and I am frantically scrambling to get them all completed before 12 pm tonight. To help me keep track of where I have applied online, I've made a excel document which allows to to put in the information I need to help m…

4 is for Quatre!

Bonjour,

So today has been one of those days. You know a day that seems like a roller coaster ride. Up, down, Up, down. I swear it felt like it was off to a good start this morning. Then I went to church and talked to some people(who by the way I am still surprised they still talk to me) and then we had a very odd conversation on friendship in Sunday School Class. I hate days that don't seem to have any promise in them. For some strange reason, I'm becoming more and more bummed as the day progresses. I have my moments. Personally I think I am still stir crazy. I haven't been able to go out and do anything. I feel so worthless. Back to today. I drove home today from the church. I need to work on turning smoothly and parking skills. Everything else I am good at. Just a little more practice.

I am still going crazy searching for a job. I feel likes it's impossible. I know its not but right now it feels like no one is hiring. I don't know why. I guess the economy is rea…

3 is for Trois!

Hola,


Yesterday I was in a horrible mood. Apparently lately I have been really pissed off about everything too. For instance, whenever my friend would ask me to come look at something I would get all snippy about it. I can't believe I was doing it. I didn't even realize I was acting that way. I feel so bad. She's my best friend. She doesn't deserve to be treated like that. So she came up to me yesterday while we were making tuna fish salad(she cuts up a slice of pickle into little pieces and puts a spoon full of pickle juice in with a sprinkle of old bay seasoning) for our clubhouse crackers and she confronted me on the matter. She said she had put up with it for two weeks before she decided to say anything. I felt so bad. I couldn't stop apologizing to her for how moody I have been lately.

Just to let you know my friends tuna fish salad is the best. I love it. I really like the way the added pickle makes it taste. I still like chopped up onions in my own recipe bu…

2 is for Deux!

Tere,

I was sitting on my chair in my room staring at the computer screen. I was reading something about voting for a government thing I was checking out. They were talking about registering to vote because you can and as a citizen of the United States of America, it is your duty and responsibility as a citizen. So now, I am going to register to vote. I feel like it is something I should be a part of. But I'm not sure what political party I fall under. I'm wonder am I a Democrat or a Republican? What if you are a person who agrees with both sides on some things and not on other things? I'm still doing some research(which would be a lot easier if government people knew how to talk in everyday language and explain things in that manner) and trying to figure out where I want my vote to count.

So yesterday or rather last night, I started reading Banana Splitsville. The author of the book is Catherine Clark. She has written a lot of novels and all together I think she has like …

1 is for Une!

Dia Duit,

So today is a fresh start from my previous series posts. I think I might stick to doing something interesting with numbers. For instance, I decided to put 1 is for...and the the french way of saying the number. I'm not sure if this confuses any of you. I think the way I am saying it makes it sound very confusing.  Then again maybe I am just imagining this strange confusion. I can't wait to get to my favorite number. I wonder if any of you can guess what number is my favorite. I bet you can't.

I love Mint Chocolate Oreo's. They are the freaking best ever. My only problem is that I can't eat very many during the day or they make my stomach hurt. But I just love their mint taste. It's just so good.

I sent out another resume and cover letter. I realized that  I might have forgotten to change the objection on all my resumes that I had sent out. I felt so embarrassed and now I'm not sure what I should do. Should I still call them and state that I made …

Z is for Zoinks

Pozdravljeni,


Sadly, today is the last post for my ABC's series. So I decided to go with a word that has been around sine I was a kid. If any of you watched Scooby Doo as a child or still do like I do. Them you would know that one of Shaggy's favorite sayings is Zoinks with some unimportant words behind it. If you have no idea what I am talking about then you need to start doing some Scooby Doo research or watch the show on TV or something.

Today, I started writing more of Chapter Six. I'm almost done with this chapter just a few hundred more words and I can call it a chapter. I am very happy with how it is turning out so far. I think I will have Chapter Seven started by Friday. I can't make any promises but I think it should be started by then. At least I hope is started by then. This is the farthest I have ever gotten in a story I've ever written. Hmph, I should dedicate more time to this book but I have to dedicate my time to other things that are more important…

Y is for Young

Helo,


Happy 20th Birthday Aaron S. Today is my best friends brothers birthday. We are having a little family party for him. His mom is making him his very dinner and dessert. I can't wait to see what he picked for his special meal. He's a whole 8 months older than I am. I was born on September 8th and this year I will be twenty. 


So today has been a really good day. I rode the Public bus for the very first time today and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. There wasn't very many people on the bus and the bus driver was very nice. Did you know that buses now take dollar bills? I found it to be very surprising. That's what I used to pay. A dollar and fifty cents. Which wasn't wasted because I filled out an application for the Dollar General. The rest of the stores all told me to apply online and then come back and talk to the manager. So yeah, I guess that's the plan from now on.


The Word of the Day is Young. I'm not really sure why I picked young…

X is for X-Ray Fish

Merhaba,

The Word of the Day is X-Ray Fish. You know the first time I learned about the x-ray fish I was fascinated  that there was actually a fish that was see through. I don't know if anyone else understands why it's cool. It doesn't really matter. I just thought it would be a good x word to use since I don't really know many and I didn't feel like looking up a list for other x words I could of used. So you're all going to have to just accept this fact whether you like it or not.

I don't really have any new news. I worked some more on Chapter Six. I think I'm making pretty good progress. I am on episode ten of Hellcats. I'm excited because the show is really good. I hope I'll be able to catch up to it on TV. I am going to ride the public bus for the very first time tomorrow. I'm a little nervous and I know it's stupid to be so nervous over a minor thing like riding a bus but it's just something I'll have to get use to. I am on …

W is for Wonder

привет,

The Word of the Day is brought to you by the letter W. The Word of the Day is Wonder. I have decided that from now on I am no longer going to give the definition of the Word of the Day. I feel like I am being so lazy not giving the definition but I don't think any of you will miss having the definition around. Anyway, I wanted to use wonder because I believe there are so many wonderful things in the world that we don't fully understand. I have a fascination with the stars in the sky at night. Every time I look up and see them I feel so small and inferior and I like this feeling because it helps me keep in check that you can't judge something just because you haven't seen it before. For example, we know that there are other planets in the solar system and yet when we look up into the sky we can't see them. We just trust that they are there. God is a very big part of my life and He has made a very big impact on my life as well. I put my faith in Him and He do…

V is for Vendetta

Hallo,


So today's Word of the Day is Vendetta. I'm feeling pretty lazy today. So if you want to know what vendetta's definition is then look it up yourselves. Today is Saturday after all so laziness is allowed in my book. If my memory holds right and it should since I am only nineteen years old. V for Vendetta is a movie and I think that movie was based off of a book or maybe it was a comic book. But I'm not sure how correct I am on that. I will have to look into it. All I really remember is seeing the movie at my cousins house. I thought the movie was kind of interesting.


So I made a breakthrough with The Light Chronicles. I didn't finish Chapter Six but I got a lot farther in my chapter. I am so excited about it. At first I wasn't really sure if this chapter fit in very well with the rest of my story but after doing some scanning of the previous chapters, I think it makes perfect sense. But anyway, my goal is to finish this chapter then to move on to the next…

U is for Unpredictable

Sveiki,

Guess which language my hello of the day is in today. Since you probably don't feel like looking it up yourselves, then I'll just tell you. That is hello in Lithuanian. Yes, that's right it's Lithuanian. Did you know that in Hetalia Axis Powers,one of my new favorite anime shows, Lithuanian is a sweet little girl character who lives with Sweden. Sweden is very trigger happy character. He's always pointing his gun at the unwanted Italy, who is always streaking through his yard. Personally, if someone was streaking and running their naked body through my yard. I think I would pull out the heavy weaponry as well. Thankfully I haven't had to use such brutal force on anyone yet. 


The Word of the Day is Unpredictable. I thought it was a good word to use because I believe myself to be unpredictable. Even though I might not seem like it with how similar these blog post are from one another. But on the other the hand, small changes make a difference no matter what…

T is for Troment

Helló,

So today's Hello of Today is in Hungarian. I love looking up all these different kinds of ways to say hello in foreign languages. To find these language translations, I've been using Google Translate. It's so much fun. I can't wait to do tomorrow's post just so I can find a new way to say hello. I wonder if anyone else finds this as cool as I do. Oh well, Pickers can't be Choosers.

The Word of the Day is brought to you by the letter T. The Word of the Day is Torment, which if you look the definition up on Google, it means, well apparently there's more than one meaning. So I'll list them all. 1. Great Physical Pain or Mental Anguish. 2. A source of harassment, annoyance, pain. 3. The torture inflicted on prisoners under interrogation. Well, now that everyone knows what torment means, I'll move on to tell you my reason for picking this word. If you don't already know, Lauren Kate, the author of Fallen has come out with a new book called Tor…

S is for Supercilious

Hej,

You'll never guess which language that is. Well, I guess you could guess if you looked it up on Google translator or something. Anyway, that's hello in Swedish. Isn't that cool? Well, I thought it was pretty cool, its not everyday you see the Swedish hello on a blog. So yeah, that's my famous foreign hello for today. Hope you all enjoyed it.

The Word of the Day is Supercilious. If you look Supercilious up on the online dictionary,  the definition is haughtily disdainful or contemptuous, as a person or a facial expression. You know I remember actually learning this word in the 10th and 11th grade. Sadly though, all the vocabulary I did in school did not help the words stay in my mind. Maybe I should stop telling people what the Word of the Day's definition is, not like you can't look it up yourselves but then again. If I put it up for you all to read then no one has to leave this page to fine the definition of the Word of the Day. 

So I am well on my way …

R is for Revolution

Caio,

That's Hello in Italian. I decided I wanted to mix up my blog posts a little by saying hello in other languages. I thought that would be a pretty  cool idea and I would be intrigued if someone did that. So I decided I would do that, because I have a small fascination by other foreign languages. So tomorrow's hello could be in any language I desire. Hmm, gives one a lot to think about on her free time doesn't it? Well, I'll be using the language to language translator like a mad hatter or should I say mad... em...something, or maybe even that might not be the right word. Well, Ill just keep my Alice In Wonderland reference then.

Also, another thing I will be doing this year is making a Must-Read Book List of 2011. During this year, I will make a list of books I want to read and then read them in that order. Which I am in the process of making this so called list right now. Then at the end of 2011, I will do a recap and give everyone my opinions on the books I'…

Q is for Quarrelet

Yo ho ho ho,

Today's word of the day is Quarrelet, which if you look it up means a little quarrel. A quarrel is a disagreement with someone.

Lately Amanda and I have been zooming around the internet looking for good anime shows to watch. We found this one show called Hetalia Axis Powers. If you are a history buff and like comedy, than this is the show for you. Each country has a person that represents them. It's kind of like a personification of that country. America is a hamburger lover who talks about always being the hero. Germany is a hard core war fanatic who has a soft spot for Italy, who is an idiot and cannot do anything for himself. Most of the countrys are male but a few are female. I enjoy the show and I suggest you give it a try because you never know. You might end up liking it.


In other news, I rode my bike to Publix to pick up a few things. I picked up a book of stamps, a money order, and a few other things that I needed. I like riding my bike, it's a great…

P is for Patience

Hello...Look Out...It's the Second Day of the New Year,

Patience is very important. Do you know why? Patience really comes in handy when you are applying for a job. Like today for instance I turned an application into a place I would consider working for. The manger was too busy to talk and so I had to hand it over to an employee. So, now I have to make myself known to these mangers by doing a follow up. Hopefully I will be able to make myself stand out so they will want to hire me at their store.

If you are a christian, like I am. Then do I have the book for you. The book is The Centurion's Wife By Davis Bunn and Janette Oke. The book takes place in AD 33, Caesarea, Judea Province. You are pulled into the story after Jesus has been crucified on the cross and has risen from the dead. Pilate, a wealthy governor, decides he cannot stand knowing the truth of this so called Jesus and decides he must find someone who give him the truth. The story revolves around a few main characte…

O is for Orange

Welcome 2011,

Wow, can you believe that it's 2011. I can't. So much has happened this year. I moved to Florida and am now in the process of living my life the way I want to, almost. I still have so many goals and those are the things I really have to reach if I want to get anywhere close to my dream. I want to do so much, it's almost overwhelming.

Anyway, I am in the process of looking for a job. It really sucks because I've never worked before. I know I'm pathetic right. I guess I just never really needed a job until now. Okay, you know what. Scratch that. I needed a job, just no one near where I used to live was hiring and it's hard to get a job if no one wants you at their store.

My Christmas was a lot of fun. We did all kinds of exciting things. We went to Gulf Coast Town Center, Manatee Park, and saw a Christmas Light Show.

Now Amanda and I need to start working on our bunk bed again and get it done. All we need to do is sand down the frames and then get s…
