Smile for Summer

It will get here eventually.......right?

Go buy a suit......with what money?

I woke up this morning about two minutes from when I have to leave for my eight o'clock class. I threw on some clean clothes, checked the mirror to make sure I didn't look like a monster who got tickled and then thrown into a static machine. My hair was ok but I kind of just rubbed my eyes and gave up any semblance of hope for makeup.
I ran downstairs and threw my stuff in my bag. A frantic search for my keys revealed them in my purse, which was in the bottom of my bag.
I carefully stepped out on my ice-rink driveway and made my way to my truck. Thankfully it started up after one try. I got the scraper and proceeded to try to chip the ice off of my windshield. It didn't work. I went between banging my head against the steering wheel while trying to regain feeling in my fingers and attacking my windshield with my mom's scraper.
After half an hour it was defrosted enough for safe driving and I was off. I arrived at school and parked to close to another truck. I managed to not touch it even squeezing between the two with my backpack. I slipped a total of three times on my way into school. It is super icy today. I made it into class and about one minute later my name was called for attendance.
I learned about interviews and I now need to buy a suit. Navy blue is a power color I guess. I don't mind getting a suit since I know I will use it for a long time, but I really don't have money right now. :( Bummer.....
After class ended I worked on homework. I wrote up my two page applications paper and turned it in. Another class came in and it was full so I moved to where I am now, the computer lab. I just recently finished my cover letter and turned it in. I am now off to get something to eat at home.
The rest of the day after that consists of filling out some paperwork for scholarships, going to the phone store for them to fix the charging part of my phone, sending in my work hours, and finally going to Glitter and Crumbs to possibly decorate cookies. *takes a deep breath and lets it out*

Busy day interwebz so off I go!

Cupcakes.

Today I was woken up and told I had 45 minutes to get ready for church. I showered and got ready and didn't have enough time to eat breakfast which left me grumpy. We got to church and I sat with Bree and Christal. The sermon was really good.
After church we went home and I fell into a state of half asleepedness on the couch while Dad made two dozen dark chocolate cupcakes. They smelled heavenly. We got them into the car and headed back to church for the 25th anniversary/birthday party thing. There were many many cupcakes; Red Velvet, Peanut butter, even Pineapple Upsidown cake ones! I ate one and hung out with people. There was a presentation and after mingling some more a group of friends and I went to the Jr. High room and played hangman until my dad texted me wondering where I was. I grabbed the leftover cupcakes on his direction and we headed back home.
I ate another dark chocolate cupcake there and then sat down while Dad and I decided what movie to watch. We watched special features until my mom got home from work and then we watched Shall We Dance. I ate smushed eggs.
I am now worrying myself dizzy over how I am going to get everything done tomorrow. I have to go to my 8am class, stay to get massive amounts of homework done (even though I don't have any food to bring with me really), fill out the fafsfa go to the phone store to get my phone fixed, and then go to Glitter and Crumbs. I rather not die.......... *sigh*

Yeah, so that is my life right now interwebz
Oh, and I am still sick. Save me?

For Ashley :) (My devotions today)

Hey Ahsley! I read that you are giving a word for your church. I did this not to long ago (nothing big) but I thought maybe, if you were having any fears about it this could help. :)

Exodus 4:10-13 (NLT)
 But Moses pleaded with the Lord, "O Lord, I'm not very good with words. I never have been, and I'm not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled."
 Then the Lord asked Moses, "Who makes a person's mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, the Lord?
  Now go! I will be with you as you speak, and I will instruct you in what to say."
 But Moses again pleaded, "Lord, please! Send anyone else."

Isn't it amazing that Moses, the man who ended up leading a huge amount of people through all sorts of trials, was afraid of speaking (even if it was to someone important). It is good to remember that God is in control :)

I don't think I'm going to school tomorrow....

This is my dad trying to get my mom's car out of our driveway. Two feet of snow people and it is still coming down. One of our neighbors helped my dad get it out finally and my mom went off to work. I wish her safe driving.

Safe driving interwebz

-Melina Rose

P.S. My voice sounds funny......... hmm

More snow? *sigh*

We are supposed to get 18 inches of snow today. It is beautiful and I am entirely sick of it. Thankfully, today is presidents day and I don't have classes. I was thoroughly surprised and it made me very happy since it could not have been better timing. If you have been reading my other blog, you will know that I have recently become sick. I still have a nasty cough but the pain in my muscles has gone down quite a bit.
Last night my dad was going to make hot chocolate. His is the best I have ever had. I was sooo excited, but then he didn't; because I am sick. It was very thoughtful of him but I was very sad.
I got my hair cut! lol Yes, this is a wonderful event in my life. I have been saving!
My mom just snuck up behind me and went "rawrawrawr" in my ear. I jumped pretty high in the air while saying "Whoa!" quite loudly. LOL She ran away with a big grin on her face. I proceeded to tell her that she should be thankful that she didn't get hurt! lol (I tend to automatically react violently to being scared. I don't do it on purpose.) She told me that is why she didn't bite my ear. HAHAHAHAHA Oh how I love my parents. :D We are so weird. :P
I have been talking to people whose blogs I follow lately. Who knew you could make good friends with people that you have never met? :D I am glad to have them as friends :) Yay for finding people with common interests to make friends with :P
I should finish up my lunch. I'm eating glorified chicken and brown rice and drinking black coffee. Haha It is weird having two blogs. I normally included some of the stuff that I include on my other blog here but now that I put it on there I don't as much here because it is repetitive. Did that sentence even make sense? haha

I'm going to finish eating interwebz

So how's your head?

I told my parents about my last post and they wanted to say that to my neighbors. Haha

I woke up today very late. I am so sore. Incredibly. Sore. I worked out really hard yesterday and now I can barely sit up. Work should be interesting tonight haha. I work 4-c and then I will hopefully go straight to bed after posting my daily post on my other blog. Today I failed. Already. *sigh*
(I realize that my grammar is incorrect. I want it that way :P)

My parents are out shopping and they are coming back later and we are going to all get haircuts. Now, I know you are probably thinking "Okay so what you are getting haircuts." but the fact of the matter is that I have been waiting until I have a bit more money to get one and now I don't have to! I am excited. The following pictures are what I want my hair to look like.

The top one is how I want the body of my hair to look. My hair is pretty long and I don't want to lose any of that length.
The middle one is how I want the fringe to look but the third one is too so..... Yeah.

I have to get ready to go now interwebz

-Melina Rose

If I didn't just see it I wouldn't believe it...

My neighbor just parked in our driveway and got out to pee on our snow covered lawn. After which, he got back in his car while being yelled at by his wife and parked two houses down after proclaiming that "This is my house." He was told that it wasn't and that "It is that way."


Pretty sure there was alcohol involved. Either that or my neighbors are really a lot weirder than I thought.

Hello World

I got up today at 6:30am and immediately went to take my shower and get ready for the day. I have class at 8am but we have an option to just send an e-mail saying we are up and working on Fridays. I chose to go to school so that I would actually get something done. I packed a lunch and water and, after eating breakfast, was on my way.
It is very windy here today. If my hair was not completely dry before, it is now. 
I got to the classroom and no one else was here so, after dumping my stuff and signing into the computer, I went to let my teacher know just in case. There are two other students here now. 
I just wanted to give you a small update. I have been working to accomplish my goals and break my bad habits. If you want to know more about that you can check out my other blog that I recently created for just that purpose. 


Maybe I will check back in later interwebz

Goals for daily life

I was talking to Sephre and we decided we need to get our act together. Stop letting ourselves waste our energy and make an effort to improve. So here are my goals. These are the things I need to do.


  1. Go to bed by 12
  2. Get up by 8 even if I don't have a class
  3. Eat three meals a day (not all at once). This has to be real food not junk food and it has to be balanced.
  4. Exercise every day and get a good workout.
  5. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day (hopefully more) and cut down on my sugar intake.
  6. Read my Bible every day.
  7. Once I get all of my stuff organized, keep it that way.
A more general goal would be to get my homework done before doing anything fun. 

Fighitng interwebz!

If you are going to claim someone else's work as your own....

1. Don't do it in a discussion where it can be compared with the original work
2. Don't post it so late that is stands out from all of the others
3. Don't have the only parts spelled correctly be the other person's
4. Re-write more than the opening and closing sentence and make it your own thought in some way
5. Don't do it to Melina Rose.

Super mad interwebz

Creating a Character 3

Monday, February 7, 2011

Ok...so maybe I lied again.

I went to bed at 2 something am last night. *waves at you* (you know who you are) :P I was super tired again this morning but I got to class and came home and ate food. I managed to get a third of my writing assignments done and then went and took a nap. I have been talking to Lysa mostly since then while munching on lime chips and salsa. I am working on homework and talking to peoples. I'm to distracted to write a post right now so I shall leave you.

Just for now interwebz

So it's kind of been a long time - Welcome to February

Sorry it has been such a long time since I posted. It isn't that I haven't been writing; actually quite the opposite. I joined a site called storywrite and have been putting my stuff up there. That, plus school, work, and various other activities have kept me very busy. I led three songs out of five this morning for worship. That was our Sunday service not Wednesday. It went well even though I woke up as a frog. Hot, mint tea with honey helped. I had worked the night before and I started feeling really sick towards the end. I drove straight to Bree's house after work and we went to bed late even though it was soon after I got there.  The night before I had stayed up until 4:30am talking on the computer. It was worth it but boy, I am still exhausted.
I went to a Superbowl party tonight. It was good even though i was the only one who showed up. I felt really bad. There was a lot of food and it was just me and my hosts. It was fun but I felt bad. They sent me home with lime chips, salsa and those little miniature hot dogs drenched in BBQ sauce.
I got home and somewhat watched the episode of Glee that my parents were watching. I was on my laptop working on a story. I am going to be in be by 1am tonight at least though so I'm going to get ready for bed and then work on it until it is time to sleep.
I have a major homework day tomorrow. I need to catch up on some things and just plain do others.
