This page is getting really long, but it's probably partly because it's in a small frame. I don't really feel like deleting any of my entries because this has become sort of a journal for me lately, and I don't feel like erasing some of the things I wrote quite yet. Anyway, on Sunday I predicted that I'd be better around midday today, and I was pretty close. I only threw up twice this morning and I still feel a little nauseous, but I'm doing so much better on the whole.
Natalie called me yesterday when she got home from cheerleading practice. She asked Sam where I was and Sam told her I was at home sick. I guess Matt couldn't get a hold of Natalie on Sunday, so Samantha told her that Jordan just likes me as a friend and she said that I'm not sure if I like Miles, but I definitely don't like Jordan. So Natalie believed her and called me, and we're all better now, thank goodness. Natalie's coming over tomorrow after cheerleading practice and spending the night. Sometimes the fact that I tell Sam everything comes in really handy.
For some reason, Samantha's really anxious for me to get the site fixed up before we go back to school, so she went on IMDb.com today and printed out all this information on Mary-Kate and Ashley's 2 upcoming movies. Since she went to all that trouble, I'll be putting that up as soon as possible. I'm hoping to have it up on Thursday before I go to the beach this weekend.

Samantha's over her little flu ordeal now, but she gave it to me. I started feeling sick around 3 this afternoon and I've been throwing up ever since. I feel disgusting. I won't be going to cheerleading practice tomorrow, but Sam's flu only lasted for 2 days, so I should be better by around midday on Tuesday. It's good that I'm getting this over with now when I don't have important plans, rather than at the beach this weekend with Elyse.
I talked to Matt today, who had talked to Jordan, and he said that Jordan only likes me as a friend. I asked Matt to tell Natalie that, so we'll see how that goes. Matt called me again tonight and I really wish I could have talked to him, but I was feeling too nauseous and it would have been really gross if I had had to get off the phone with him to throw up. Anyway, things are currently looking up for my situation with Natalie. I hate immature high school drama; it all revolves around rumors and guys. I just want to get this whole thing over with as soon as possible.

I called Natalie twice today, and both times she hung up on me. I don't know how I'm going to get her to talk to me, or what I can say to make her realize that I don't like Jordan, but this whole thing is fucking stupid. And anyone who knows me knows that I almost never swear, so this whole situation is really getting on my nerves. I might try e-mailing her tonight, but again, I don't really know what to say to her. She doesn't even have it on good authority that Jordan likes me, she just heard it from somebody at the party. He hasn't asked me out or anything. Maybe I can get Matt to talk to Jordan because they're kind of friends, and then I can go from there with Natalie. I don't know...
Mom got a letter in the mail today saying that Samantha's and my schedules for school will be ready in about two weeks. It said that we can go pick them up on August 28th or 29th. We'll have to go on the 29th because the 28th is Samantha's birthday and we're going to a local theme park type of thing. We've been there before and it's awesome--good rides, good food, etc. Sam's taking like 5 of her friends, and I get to take 2. Natalie was going to go, and she still can if we're talking by then. Elyse is coming too. If Natalie won't talk to me, it'll just be me and Elyse. Back on topic, we also have to pick up school books on the 29th. Only 17 more days of summer. It's getting weird.

Well, I didn't post here on Monday because I left for cheerleading camp that day. We were supposed to get picked up at 5:00 this evening, but Samantha threw up in the middle of the night last night, so Mom had to come pick us up this morning. We think Sam might just have a 24-hour flu. I hope she doesn't give it to me, because I absolutely hate throwing up. She's been sleeping and watching TV in her room and Mom's taking care of her, so I think I'm safe.
Okay, Miles' party was really, really fun. He had good music and food and the dancing was fun. Yeah, I just had a really good time. I talked to Miles a lot and he's actually a really great guy. He's a lot like Matt and Matt is my best guy friend, so I could definitely hang out with Miles. I talked to a lot of people at the party, and Matt and I both drank so much pop and got really hyped up on caffeine, and we couldn't get to sleep until 5 in the morning. We went to see Freaky Friday the next day with Natalie, Elyse and Alissa, and I thought it was really cute. It was a little creepy, though, with Anna's crush having a crush on her mom.
When I got home after the movie on Sunday I took a nap, and my mom woke me up after about an hour because I had a phone call from Natalie. So I took the call, and she started totally freaking out at me because I had talked to this guy named Jordan at Miles' party. She's been telling me all summer that she likes Jordan, even though she doesn't know him very well. I didn't even talk to Jordan that much at the party, but she kept saying that I was trying to steal him from her or something. So then I told her that I liked Miles, even though I'm not sure if I do, just so she would know that I don't like Jordan. But she just kept raving on about it because I guess she heard from somebody that Jordan likes me, and then she just hung up on me. She wouldn't talk to me all week at cheerleading camp, so I just hung out with my roommates, Hollie and Rachael. The whole thing was just really weird. I hate that we're fighting over something as stupid as this, because we never fight, and here we are, fighting over a guy that neither of us knows that well.
I'm going to go watch The O.C. because my mom taped it for me. I could seriously get addicted to that show. Then I'll probably take a nap, and tonight me and Sam can watch The Amazing Race because Mom taped that for us too.

I'm over at Matt's and I'm almost ready for the party, even though we aren't leaving until 7:45. I just love my new outfit and I couldn't wait to get dressed. The skirt is black and knee-length and it has this sort of ruffly thing at the bottom, and I like the green one-shoulder shirt. My favorite part, though, is the shoes. They're flip-flops, but they're really nice, and they're this silvery, satiny material, and then the straps are shiny. Matt's mom is a hairdresser and she curled my hair for me, and when I get done here I'm going to go do my nails.
I get way too into parties. It's a little pathetic actually. I just haven't been to a big party like this for a long time, and it'll be fun to see some people that I haven't seen in a while. Oh, I have to go, Matt's calling me for something. I seem to be making a habit of posting here every other day, so I'll probably be here on Monday to talk about the party.

I went to the mall today with Natalie, Elyse, and Alissa. We usually go in the afternoon or evening, but today we had to go earlier because Natalie had to go to a party for her grandma's 75th birthday. It was a pretty productive trip. I got 3 new pairs of pants and 5 tops for school. I also got myself a skirt, top, headband and shoes for the party. Alissa spotted some hot guys in the food court, and since she's really outgoing, she just went over there and told them they were hot. I don't get how she can do that; I have a really hard time just going up to people I don't know. It actually turned out nicely, though, because they bought us lunch. Alissa really hit it off with one of the guys, who was named Andrew, and she got his phone number.
In this one store I was just looking at makeup while Natalie, Elyse and Alissa were all trying on clothes, and all of a sudden this woman came up to me and was telling me that I was too skinny and that I should be wearing less revealing clothes. She said that I was presenting an unrealistic body image for younger girls at the mall, and then she just stormed off before I could say anything back. Okay, I realize that extremely thin girls in the media contribute somewhat to girls developing eating disorders, but people can't just attack people they see in real life and blame them. That woman had no idea what was going on with me. I'm thin genetically and it's been addressed by my doctor, but if I had an eating disorder, confronting me angrily probably wouldn't have been a smart thing to do. I get really sick of being harassed about my weight by strangers. And excuse me for wearing shorts, but it's August and it's hot. It's not like I showed up in my swimsuit; I was wearing normal clothes. Everyone do me a favor and don't attack skinny people that you see at the mall.
Elyse is spending the night and we're about to go rent movies and get candy at the video store. We're in a little kid-movie sort of mood, so we're considering Agent Cody Banks and What a Girl Wants. Later.

I talked to Matt yesterday and he and I made new weekend plans that made more sense than the arrangement that we had before. Instead of me spending the night at his house on Friday, which would be totally pointless, I'm going over there on Saturday morning. I'll get ready at his house and go to the party with him, and since we don't know when it will be over and it could be really late, I'll spend the night at his house on Saturday night. On Sunday we'll go see Freaky Friday as planned, and I'll go home after that. That makes a lot more sense.
On Thursday, I'm going to the mall with Natalie, Elyse, and Alissa, and I can get some of my school clothes shopping done. Also, I might get something new to wear to the party, because I usually do that.
Today I can finally start reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I got it in early July, but then I had cheerleading camp and I was busy with other things, and then when I had time to read it, I realized that I should probably get my summer reading out of the way first since I usually leave school stuff until the last minute. So now that I finished summer reading and the follow-up assignment, I finally feel good about starting Harry Potter. Since I usually can't put good books down, I'm hoping to be done with it sometime this week.

Okay, here's the new layout. The grey on the old one just seemed so wrong for summer, so I made this one green and blue. I'm really mad, though, because I was working on the style sheet and I could not make the links be white, so they're this ugly, default underlined blue. I'll have to work on that more later, but I was getting really worked up, so I decided to just leave it for now.

I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean last night with Matt and Alissa and it was so, so good! I love Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom, which is what attracted me to the movie in the first place, but I actually ended up loving the movie, and not just for the hot guys. Everyone who hasn't seen it, go see it! It was also really fun because I hadn't been to a movie for kind of a long time, and I really missed it. Next weekend I'm going to see Freaky Friday, and sometime this month I want to see Uptown Girls.
Being at the movies with Matt and Alissa was actually a little weird, because I think Matt might like Alissa. He's not really obvious about it, but I've known him since grade school and he's my best guy friend, so I can tell that he acts a little different around her. I felt like maybe he wanted to be alone with her, but he's the one who asked both of us to the movie.
I actually just got off the phone with Matt, and his friend Miles is having a really big party (no occasion) next Saturday, and Matt's inviting some people for him. I've had a few classes with Miles and we've talked and he's a really nice guy, but we've never hung out aside from at school, so I'm kind of excited to see him again. Since I don't know Miles that well and I don't want to just show up at his house, I'm going to spend the night at Matt's on Friday night and then just hang out at his house on Saturday and go to the party with him that night. I'll probably get to see a lot of people that I haven't seen this summer, so it should be really fun.

I've been so bad with this site this summer, it's just pathetic. I guess I should have expected it because my summers are always really odd. I'll alternate between short periods of being extremely busy and short periods of just hanging out at home. I've been busier than usual this summer because of cheerleading, so I haven't had a lot of free time. I guess we'll just call last month a very long, unannounced hiatus. I guess I should have come back with a new layout, but I didn't, and I don't know if I can expect August to be any less busy than July was, so if things don't get back to normal until school starts, I'm sorry.
I've also realized that this site is a lot more about me than it is about the Olsen twins. It's not because I lost interest in them, it's just that my own life got so busy and I didn't really have time to keep tabs on them. It might be like this for the rest of the summer, but by the time school starts I'm hoping to have a new layout up and to get the focus of this site back to where it should be. But for now, since I don't have time for any great new beginning, I guess I'll just have to go with the flow for a while.
If you're wondering what I've been up to in the last month, I can't really go over every detail, but it's been a lot of practicing cheerleading, a lot of summer reading for my advanced English class when school starts, and a lot of seeing movies, hitting the beach, etc. with Natalie, Elyse, Matt, and the rest of the gang (and I don't mean that we're literally in a gang). For my last month of summer, I don't have too many things actually planned out. The second session of cheerleading camp is August 11th through the 15th, but that's pretty much the only thing I know that's going on for sure.
Anyway. I'll try to do stuff here regularly and to get the site all fixed up by the time school starts. Probably the only major updates I'll be doing this month are maybe a new layout, and keeping my calendar and right now page up to date. So, I guess that's it.
