So, this past Thursday I was driving my car to Sterry to pick up some friends. Nothing too unusual, except it was raining a little bit. So, I took the turn off of Bishop Street to get onto Hopkins, and suddenly, as I was turning left at a stop light, I literally felt a thud, and felt my car stop working from underneath me.

The next thing I felt was this huge shove, like someone was pushing me, and my car started spinning in a circle. I could my car sliding off the road. My car was COMPLETELY off the road, as I slid into a person's front yard...about to actually hit their house.

Scared out of my mind, I slammed on the breaks harder than I thought possible. After my car had spun around two times, I finally my car stop. I came within about 2 feet of hitting the side of someone's house.

I was so scared, I didn't know what to do. My car was still running, and I checked to make sure there had not been any damage to the house, or the people's front yard. There wasn't, so I reversed and drove away.

The weirdest thing was: my car felt fine after that.

So, I took the car in Monday morning after telling my parents what had happened.

The car place told me they had test drove my car and could find ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with it.

I think what had happened was that my car had gotten too slippery between the road and my tires, and hydro-planed.

Needless to say, I was scared shitless. It still kind of hits me from time to time that I could totally have died.

Talk about a wake-up call.

IT HAS BEEN FOREVER SINCE I LAST UPDATED...
So much has happened to me since my last update, its scary.

This past weekend alone, Josh officially left to the Marines. I'm really sad, but at the same time, very excited for him. :]

Also, I have been in college for like 3 months already, and it is indescribeable. I love it. I do get homesick from time to time, but I love the freedom. I love being around people that I like, and that like me. I am glad to be away from the drama of the valley, and away from certain people.

I know I am changing, and I love it.
I am meeting new friends, keeping old ones, and being true to myself.

I am finally on my way to becoming the person I feel like I should be.

Thanks to all of you who have seen me through my journey.
:D

8 days until graduation...
Since I am not taking any of my finals, I am taking full advantage and doing some leisure reading. I really love it. My goal is to finish my current book by graduation, and read AT LEAST 2 more during summer.

I will say, however, it's REALLY starting to hit me. Tomorrow is my last day of Art class. I'm gonna miss it.

I know I'm being totally lame, but I can't help but feel like something HUGE is coming after MAY 31. (Lets hope its a good thing.)

i dont know...
I dont know why...but i am feeling thoughtful today. I've realized that if you want to change...you have to do it for yourself. No one can do it for you. The reason I mention this is because recently I too, have been trying to undergo a change. Not only physically, but mentally. I feel like I am on some kind of path to becoming the person I want to be. I am not there yet...but Im trying. :/

Thursday show!!!!!!!
Today is my first entry using this livejournal. I used to have one, but that didnt go well. I am hoping now things will be different this time around. Anyway, today I went with Kelley to get her hair cut at DeSanchez, (and she looks wonderful might I add. ;).) Afterward I went to the Thursday show! It was awesome! I had a blast! I got to hang out with some new friends and catch up with some old ones. :]. I dont know, things have been interesting lately. I love my friends. They rock.
