One to ten to one

So recently I have had a super hard time focusing. Either because of thoughts running through my head, not having an attention span, stressing over things... Etc. So I decided to try and help myself focus. So I created the one to ten to one.
Here is what you do.
1. Count slowly from one to ten.
2. List off the things on your mind
3. Address all of them with a reason to stop worrying about them and give yourself a time that you can start thinking about it. (this way you are not forcing the thought out of your mind you are just putting it away for a little)
4. Count from ten to one.
5. (optional) say a little prayer to keep that focus.

So as an example... Say you are worried about a friend and it is complelety keeping you from talking to other people and focusing on what you need to do. Here is what you do:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
I am worried about so and so because of this.
Okay. I know you are worried but now you need to put that out of your mind until you are done doing this project.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

And you are finished. It totally helps me.

Things that make me mad

I guess I should justify right away that I don't get mad easy. I can remember the last time I was "mad" and that was like 3 months ago. And I was more hurt then mad.
So I thought today I would explain what really will make me mad.
1. When people are treating my friends bad
2. When I tell someone something and they go tell other people when it was a secret. Or if I say something as a joke about someone to a person, and they pass it on because they took it seriously. Then that person thinks I meant it... and drama starts.
I will say honestly that I found out that number 2 happened today. I was even starting to trust this person, but they now have destroyed one of my few real friendships. And I will be honest I have no idea what to do... because now I have to clear it up with my friend, and tell the other its not okay to do that. So if you have any advice, please tell.

The Other Me

So I have a friend named Melanie. She has no facial emotions so as a joke, my friends started saying "hey look! I am Melanie!" and then copy her facial expression. And eventually she started  calling me Melanie. So I am her, and she is me. This morning I was bored, so I got on her Face Book page and "liked" 30 of her pictures, and commented on a couple of her things (and this makes her iPod malfunction). And this is what we have been doing since

Dear Me,
u obviously had nothing to do during ur time other than looking thru ur pictures and liking A LOT of them!! goodness me! u make me crazy sometimes. u know that.
Love Me.

 Dear me,
does it ever bother you when people type in a run on sentence or they tipe lik tis or EvEn LiKe ThIs I fInD It VeRy AnNoYiNg AnD TiMe CoNsUmInG bEcAuSe I HaVe BeEn DoInG tHiS FoR lIkE 10 MiNuTeS
Anyways! Stop doing that. Its so annoying and time wasting. Really I don't understand why you are writing on your own wall. Are you really that desperate? gosh. and the fact that you even have a w...all for people to walk past and read is just ridiculous. And who is to say that it wasn't yourself who liked all of those things? We are the same person. you are I and I are you. Got it? To bad.
Truth be told, you dint know why you are writing this. Perhaps its because my favorite color is purple. and my second favorite color is blue. Oh wait! It's yours too! How weird. Stop being a time waster,

Dear Me,
why am i so confusing? I don't make sense at all. jeez me.
Love Me :)

Dear Self,
Did you say cheese me? Cause that's what it sounded like. maybe that's why you are so confused with yourself.
Your worried self,

So really, there is no point to it. But it is still fun. :)
I also thought I would put up the tree man. Sorry its an awful picture.

Some Things on my Mind

So today I was sick. With the stomach flu. I have noticed that I am always sick on the most inconvienent days. Today I missed woods and I only have 3 days left. I am making something for my mom and I needed today. I also wasn't able to work on my quilt... Last time I was sick, I missed a solo audition. Bummer.

The other thing on my mind is that I just had a total blonde moment. I was thinking how deaf day was next Wednesday and it was on an odd day. But the odd day next week is a Tuesday. It took me 20 minutes to realize it was this Wednesday.

Las Vegas

This weekend, my parents and I came to visit my family in Las Vegas. So I decided to tell you about it so far.

First, I saw some awesome signs on our way in. 
-Worlds Largest Gift Shop
-If its in stock, we have it!
There were others, but these were the best.

I also saw a lot of sports cars. Like 4 Camaro's, A couple Corvettes, Challengers, Mustangs... And it was awesome. And 10 limos. (Yours is still the best Sherry!)

We went to the Chocolate Factory/Cactus Garden. They light up the cacti and it is amazing. Really amazing. Their chocolate is super delicious too!

For dinner we went to a burger joint called... the Smash Burger? I think that's it. They put like 2 tbsp of Mustard and mayo on... but it was still delicious. and I only got 3 pickles... It was good though. I would go back. 

Here was the fun part of last night: We went to the Bellagio. It was awesome. Inside they have a Christmas display. They had polar bears and all that fun jazz. The polar bears were made from white poinsettias.  One had 13,000. It was crazy! And amazing at the same time. after looking through there, we went outside and watched the water show. It was awesome but there was another thing that I thought was the best. There was a guy dressed up like an ilt, and he would stand still then just move randomly and freak people out. It was SO funny. Totally made my day. I took pictures, but my brothers computer doesn't have a card reader... so I will post them later.

Today, my nephew is sick, so I stayed home from church with him. He is happily playing my iPod.
