Last, night I played bingo. Not regular boring old bingo, but LEGIT bingo.

My old high school has been holding bingo nights as a fundraiser, so my mom and I figured "Why not go? Maybe we will win some money." So we paid the fee to play, and were given a ton of sheets. There were early bird games, triple triple, lotto cards, main games, I could go on and on. It was so overwhelming (luckily, we had one of the vets explain what everything was to us). Whats more, it 'ain't just about making lines anymore. There were corner stamps, crazy kites, six packs, hard way, easy way, odds and evens. Who even came up with all of this stuff? That being said, bingo was intense! Yes, that's right, intense. No wonder little old ladies like it so much. (there were a lot of older people there, many of them playing 4 or 5 cards at once! I could hardly keep up with one card!)

Surprisingly, the most exciting part of the night wasn't the bingo, It was the pull tabs. Pull taps are just like scratchers; uncover a box and see if you win (some of the pull tabs would even reveal numbers, and if you got a bingo on it you would win big bucks). With outrageous cheesy names given to the different types of pull tabs, it was hilarious when they would "go on sale". Everyone would wave money in the air saying "I want some trifecta!" or "Give me 'where's the beef!". Ok, so maybe you had to be there, but it was hilarious.

During a friendly neighbor game (if you are sitting next to the person who wins bingo, you win a package of pull tabs)I just happened to be sitting next to the big winner. While most of the pulls tabs are duds, I managed to win $10.50 (can you say, coffee money?) Not bad for my first time (all though I would mind winning the big prize)

Getting in the spirt!

Well,I've (attempted) to start getting ready for halloween! I have been going through all of the old decorations and costumes, and of course my family and I keep trying to scare each other. We also let my dog try on a costume. Doesnt she look adorable?

My dog, the cat burgler

Happy Halloween everyone!


Yesterday, my mom and I went to the beach. No, not to swim. It was so nice just standing in the sand, listening to the wind and the waves. Here are some pictures I took.

Aren't these pictures georgous?! Just proof that the beach isn't just a summer stop.Just be sure to watch out for the birds!

Birthday Thoughts..

Today is my 18th birthday. It's crazy, I cant even believe it. Everyone keeps telling me "Be careful, you can go to big girl jail now" which scares the crap out of me, Im just waiting to be framed for some crime.

I really want to order a snuggie or a sham wow or some other infomercial gadet that I dont need simply for the sheer fact that I can.

Another thing I cant wait to buy dry is dry ice. Whats more fun than frozen Carbon Dioxide? It's great for making fog! :P

Today is really scarry for me to think about. I mean, I am an adult now! Ew! Before I know it I'll be 20. Then 30! It's crazy to imagine, considering I still think of myself like a 15 year old. I feel like I keep waiting for something crazy and drasrtic to happen, Like I need to be brought into abulthood by being struck by lightning or something. Even though I know that the years really just run together..

to be continued..

Good Reads

How was everyone's weekend? Mine was great. Care t o guess why? This weekend, i read two complete books in two days! I know, impressive.

The books I read were The Summoning and The Awakening by Kelly Armstrong. the first book (summoning) follows a girl named Chloe, who one day starts seeing ghosts. She is then put in a home for disturbed teens, tagged as a schizophrenic, and left to "heal". The only problem is, Chloe isn't actually mentally ill, and she suspects that some of the other kids in the home aren't quite what they seem either.

The second book (awakening) continues Chloe's story, and chronicles an adventure that her and her new found friends must embark on - their lives depend on it.

I really enjoyed these books. They have a nice dose of the "supernatural" which I love reading, and still manage to break past the conventional pattern that I (and others?) have started to see everywhere. (What can I say, I guess everyone wants to be the next Twilight?) These stories are different, and full of twists that I didn't expect (which is saying something, because usually I'm pretty good at telling what will happen next in a story). So, I am recommending them to all of you out there, and of course, I'm always open to hearing what all you guys are reading!

Things To Do

Be in a zombie march!! The other day I heard an advertisement for a Zombie March that was being held in hollywood. Unfortunatly, I couldnt go, but doesnt that sound fun?! Ok, so maybe it's just me being crazy, but dressing up in torn clothes with ketchup blood and walking (well, more like "lurching". zombies dont exactly walk) around in public areas seems just crazy enough that it could turn out to be spectacularly fun! (at the very least it would make for an intresting story)

So, it is my goal to round up some of my friends and have a zombie march of my own, and I encourage all of you to go do one too, just for the heck of it!

Things I Love!

Trend alert! One of my favorite looks for fall is none other than ther (drum roll please) Man Jacket!! Ok, ok, so I'm sure there is some more technical name for it, but man jacket serves the purpose. Here are two style for you to consider:

1. The lumberjack/skater jacket.

It is especially cute when you pair it with girly pieces.

2. The introspective coffe drinking jacket.

It gives a more put together look.

Want to get a hold of a jacket like this? They can be pricy in stores, so why not get started at your local thrift store? But remember, you wont find these in the girl's section!

The Driving Diaries

Today, I realized just how much driving I do, especially considering I haven't had my license for all that long. Driving to school, dropping off my sister, and going on Taco Bell runs (all of which are very regular occurrences) can really make driving seem like a chore. But today when I was on my way home from school - with the radio turned up and the windows rolled down - driving was just fun. Do you ever get the feeling that you just need a breeze? It's so hard to explain, but sometimes I feel like one of those little dolls that get really big when you put them in water; The right thing can just fill me up with happiness, to the point where I just want to smile.

It just felt so great being in my little space, doing my thing and enjoying myself. No wonder driving is considered such a rite of passage. It really is a little bit of Independence. And, as much as I sometimes hate it, there are also times when I love it.
