Expecto Patronum

I've been thinking a lot about Harry Potter lately (typical I know). It might have something to do with the fact that I watched all five of the movies with Mom in the last few weeks but I couldn't tell for sure. Anyway in the third movie Harry learns how to produce the Patronus charm to ward off the dementors that attack him. For the spell to work you have to have a really powerful/strong happy memory that basically forces the dementors away. I've been thinking about my most happy memory and I finally decided when I was the most happy. Get ready...

Thanksgiving of 2007 was the best family holiday I think I have ever had with my family. Tears come to my eyes when I think about how perfect that week was but one moment sticks out in particular. On Thanksgiving day we all kneeled together for family prayer. It was my turn to say the prayer and I got all choked up because I was so joyful with my family and just having the idea that we can have an eternity of thanksgiving weeks together in heaven. I don't know words cannot express how those few minutes in prayer changed my outlook on life. I feel extremely blessed everytime I get together with my family and I must say I cannot wait until the day we can all be reunited together in heaven once again without the stress of the world.
Okay now I want to know what memory you would use to keep the dementors away from you. I'm not gonna lie mine is pretty solid so dementors if you're reading now you know you have no chance of getting my soul!

Little Things

I'm sitting here at the computer in my house, on a Monday night, all by myself. I really have nothing planned tonight and I don't think there is any way for me to be more content. Today was it's usual productive day with a few little bits of heaven interspersed to make it extraordinary.
Today I got my first AP Biology test back. I had prepped myself for the worst as our teacher told us not many people did well on it. I thought Oh well I've got the rest of the semester anyway. I finally got it back I and was so excited 52/56! I had recieved one of three A's in the entire class. If I had been by myself I would have cried. Ah! I was and still am way excited about it.
Second bit of heaven came at work when I found a large basket of funsized Milkyways sitting out for us to eat.
Third and probably the bit I was counting on all day was my fantastic dinner of my two most favorite things on earth. For dinner I ate chips and homemade bean dip and salsa. Both were poor imatations of the real things made by people I dearly love but still I couldn't have been any more happy as I ate until I was stuffed of something oh so delicious.
The last bit of heaven comes with the rest of my night. I don't have anything planned. I'm already in my pj's and soon I will climb into bed to read my dragon book and watch some tv before I sleep so I can do it all again tomorrow.
Look for the little things in your life that make you happy. I'm sure if I were a more mature person I would have some more fulfilling things on my list but for now I am utterly and blissfully happy.

Six Unspectacular Things About Me

1. I really love to be alone and dictate how I want my time to be spent. I could just lay around the house all day. But still I love being busy. I think it makes the down times more exciting.

2. Acne is the worst thing in the world. I'm sorry fellow friends who suffer from it because it hurts. Honestly I've wanted to scratch my face off all weekend.

3. They just built a Sonic in Wilsonville and I just went to it. AHH! It was so delicious! Honestly I have been thinking about that Sonic burger and Cherry limeade all weekend.

4. While going to the above mentioned Sonic I was on a date. Honestly I just want to hold this boys hand SO bad. Too bad I feel he is too shy and the move to make our relationship more official will never happen. New goal: Hold a boys hand for real before I graduate high school. 8 months and counting.

5. I think half of having a beautiful singing voice is having the confidence to sing loud and proud and make it beautiful in your own way. I mean come, on very few people have truly awful voices but still I am left one of about 20 girls that actually sings in Young Women.

6. When I watch those Celebrity Lifestyle shows on VH1 I find myself getting weird about money. I get to a point where I'm like 3 million dollars isn't that much compared to the 20 million spent on another celebrity home. Then I get my little $115 check from work and suddenly things snap back into focus.

In A Perfect World

Being the lowly girl of seventeen that I am I will not be able to vote in the next election. I doesn't matter really that much because I already have my canidates in mind. This, in my eyes, would make for the perfect P and VP.

I want to know if any of you have the perfect people for our new P and VP

I thought tomorrow was a payday. Turns out it isn't. Suddenly the weekend doesn't seem as exciting.

Bless the Monday's That Go By Quickly

Today was such a good quick day that you could hardly call it a Monday. Perhaps I am getting use to this school thing or maybe I was just busy enough that things went quick but it was very nice. Let me give you a little run down of my day.
5:18am---rise and shine Mallory it's time to wake up
6:10am---I better be out of the house or I will for sure be late for seminary
7:20am---Jazz Choir (actually really fun and probably one of the favorite parts of my day)
8:20am---Study period. I'm not assigned to a class so I do homework/study and stuff
9:26am---Organic and Biochemistry. I am really suprised how much chem I remember from sophomore year.
10:28am---Fiber arts. I will learn to knit and right now we are working on batiks. A really good social period.
11:30am---Lunch time! I usually eat lunch with my friend Michelle and a lot of the time we go home to her house for lunch.
12:10pm---Symphonic Choir. Really a ton of fun. This year I am singing alto which is new because she thinks I will give the altos a nice rich tone.
1:06pm---Ap Biology. A lot of work. I love biology but I still do homework for this class everynight. It's strange
2:08pm---Advanced Literature or contemporary novels. I love this discussions we have in this class. The only negative I have about this class is this one stupid girl likes to rag on Stephanie Mayer. I don't tell people I love twilight.
3:10pm---Schools out!
3:26pm---I clock in at work where I file papers. I really enjoy the people at work.
5:04pm---I'm on my way home!
The rest of the night consists of dinner and homework and if I'm lucky a little relax time. Suprisingly I am still doing all right and I can't complain about too much. Tonight I had a meeting about my rugby-disneyland trip and my choir-new york trip. Oh I am so excited! I am going to make HSM:3 look boring. hahaha
