WOW...i am soooo responsible being the first to respond to this..or maybe it is because i am grounded and you all have lives!! well anyways the best part of my break would have to be the time spent away from home...random peoples houses and CHRISTMAS was fun of course..got to love the breakfast with the family and i LOVE christmas eve with all the family....definently the funnest part of break...the worst part of my twoweek break would be when my PARENTS showed up at the news years eve party i was at to check up on me..so not cool...that was probably the worst and dumbest part of my break!!
So 6 months left and i would love to accomplish very much..I would love to finish this year feeling very imvovled and like i made a difference in this school and i am thinking getting more involved with all the commitees and ASB is the way! But i definently need to stay focused on JR.PROM which is in the cafeteria...no we didnt really fight it...getting throught that without freaking out sounds like a good goal! Accomplishing these goals takes paicence and persistance! I need to let my ideas be knoewn and have alot more to say in class...that is smart!!! Everyone can help by..being themselves cause i like normalcey..is that even a word!!!
lauren darling, having your parents show up at a party sounds like loads of fun. Anyway, it's funny (i didn't post it, but i have someof the same goals as you) i want to be MORE INVOLVED too. i always feel like i should be doing more to help. bye the way, if you need any help with Jr. Prom, i am always here to help, just call my name.

well im confused b/c it said post, but maybe it means comment

The best part of my break was new years eve. I spent the entire night ( well from 7 pm-7am) at my churchs' annual all nighter blow out.Jack, Bob and I went and in the beginning there were jumpys and a bbq, we had an ice fight with some of our friends from there and then we were off to boomers, with unlimited arcade games and mini golf in the rain. then we had a band play ( and i was crazy) and then watched napolean! heck yes we did!
It was such a good experience because it shows my friends and I can have fun with out getting drunk and have the so called fun of the average teen. When spening 12 hours with your best friend you get to have lots of good conversations and anything is fun.

The worst part of my break would be a huge problem that happened with my parents, i dont really feel like explaining. but if you must know you can ask me personally and i shall inform you.
It was a bad experience b/c 16 1/2 years of being a good kid and earning my parents trust was down the drain for something i said all in good humor
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the next six monthes i would like to have a sucessful musical, keep good grades, low stress levels. Maybe accomplish something good with modeling, have a game plan for after highschool set up and ready to go. Make Liberty Idol wonderful for everyone! Get the courage to Run for ASB. Get a Job and my license. take my SAT's. become a happier person
many more im just tired



I will need support from those around me, help during Liberty Idol, suggestions for the LI rally, and much self motivation

obsitcals would be, stress, lazyness, fear will lead to not writing a run for asb speech, procrastination, not going to the gym will result in lack of modelness,....

Good for you for having fun without alcohol. Sometimes I feel like the only person who doesn't go to parties, and do feel a little bit like I'm missing out, but in the end, I do what I feel is best for me. If I went to a party, I would be uncomfortable, and just bring everyone else down, and as I already am quite capable of doing something stupid, I do not need the assisstance of alcohol at all. This is in no way meant to be insulting or offensive to all you partiers out there, but you guys need to do something every once in a while that includes everyone, not just the drinkers. That way we can all hang together. Please? I'm lonely. I need to stop now and go cry in a dark corner while listening to depressing emo music. Heck, I'll even throw own some wristbands, black nail polish, and some eye liner.

The best part of my two week break was sleeping in past noon almost every day, giving me lots of needed sleep and relaxation. The worst part of the break was sleeping in past noon almost every day, because it cut my day in half, limiting what I could accaomplish during the day. I slept through half my break. Also, it put me on a wierd sleep pattern, so I didn't fall asleep until 2:30 the night before we returned to school, so I'm tired.
With six months left in the year, I want to really do my best work in all of my classes. Whether that means straight A's or straight C's, I want to really know that I did my best. It creates a very satisfying feeling. I've had problems with this in the past, as laziness and my tendency to procrastinate pull my grades down. One thing that would help would be getting some study groups together, as it would not only help me in school, but would serve as an oppritunity to see someone besides Chase outside of school. I have a lack of a social life. I would also very much like to continue the development of my band, Big Metal Hammer. I want people to be exposed to us, as I love attention. Hopefully, it will help with my social interaction deficiancy (I could care less about the guys, if ya know what I mean). I also need to hurry up and take the necessary steps towards getting my license. Geeze, I'm gonna be busy.
Oh yeah, we are gonna be playing at battle of the bands, and I would to see a large contingency of our leadership fans. It is a non-football activity! It's me Greg and Chase, all cool guys, and we want groupies! Yeah, Rock and Roll!
I feel ya. No seriously. My days were cut in half too. But it was good times. And I also know about the social life and partying. I've never been a groupie but sounds fun. :) Kelly
Well the best part of break for me was being at the Lou Bronzan wrestling tournament with my two best friends for TWO whole days. (it didn't hurt there were many cute boys also) :-P lol. Anyways I also enjoyed staying up to one o'clock in the morning and knowing I didn't have to get up in 5 hours.
The worst part of my break was going to see on family on Christmas Eve. I don't particularly like most of my family so that was no that fun. And the food is always really bland and such and also when me and my mom spend TOO much quality time together I normally get grounded.lol.
Goals for the rest of the year are to become ASB Treasurer, get over a 4.0 and end the year with no regrets. The obstacles for Treasurer could be that there is comeone more qualified than me and they would get the job. Over a 4.0 could include many things like getting bad test grades, taking on too many things that take away from school. The obstacles are numerous. Finally leaving with no regrets just requires me to do all i want to do for the next six months! Hopefully I can accomplish these things.
-Ally
I'm glad you have decided to go for ASB Treasurer! You are doing an awesome job.

I like the idea of no regrets. It may sound cheesy, but "absolutley no regrets" is much harder than it sounds.

hey aj

wow you have quite a bit of goals to accopmlish.i don't know your parents, but i'm sure they can't be that bad. they raised you didn't they, and i think they did a pretty good job. i don't know what problems you have for them but just relax you are probably going through a that stage where you wish you had your liscnece so you can get away but you feel trapped and stuck with them. anyway, if need help with math i am sure i can help, unless you are in a higher math class than me-- sorry but i won't be able to help then AJ just relax and take it one step at a time. i ave to tell myself this often or i get overloaded and have a breakdown.if possible try to accomplish one goal at a time, but always try to help your friend

the best part of my two week break was getting to stop and take a breather. i also love to spend time with my family. i'm weird i know, but i love to hang out with my little brothers(at least when they are in a good mood, if not i hate to be around them) so thebest part of break for me was having family time, because we don't get that when school is in. every one of us has extremely busy schedules. the worst part of break was when i didn't wish my dad a merry christmas. i don't talk to my dad and i haven't for about a year and a half for certain reasons. when i say i don't talk to him, i literally mean i have no relationship with him at all. it is so weid, but every time i see him i get a strange addrenalin rush and have to hide. he has nevr done anything wrong to me, but i don't know. and when he came to pick up my brothers on Christmas day, i couldn't even wish him a merry Christmas. after i felt like i was the worst person in the world, but oh well i guess.


anyway, my goal for the rest of the year is to establish take back the night with maria, jennifer, and christina. for this the girls and i will need major help from all of the leadership class even though i don't have all the detail. it is going to take a lot of work.i don't quite know all the obstacles yet, but i belive some include contacting the program, figuring out what we are even going to do with it, getting it approved by the board and GETTING PEOPLE INVOLVED!!!

I definately know what you mean trista and I'm glad you had an awesome break with your family. Take Back the Night is definately going to be super challenging but I have faith in the four of us and Leadership. I seriously think we can do it if we put our best foot forward and work hard. Don't worry though, I think it'll turn out to be great and we'll look back on it at the end of the year and see how superb of a job we did.

okay, the best part of christmas break was definately christmas itself, just because everyone is in such a jolly happy mood.You're with the people you love most and nothing could possibly go wrong(or at least i hope not). The next best thing would be my trip in LA which was so fun because I got to do a whole bunch of shopping, eating, and using up all the christmas money/giftcards.

The worst thing would definately be that I got grounded because I spent new years with my boyfriend and told my parents I was over at my best friend's house. I found out she told my mom I wasn't with her and deliberately lied to my face.It sucks when you think you can trust someone and they end up lieing to your face. Needless to say, I sure learned my lesson.

For the next six months...I just want to see an acceptance letter from Davis. AHHHHH!!!I HOPE I GET ACCEPTED!! I think the obstacle for this one is the waiting period from now until march and if I don't get accepted, what's my next choice?? There isn't really much assistance that I need because I've already turned in all applications. I just need support. By the way, Good luck to all seniors and hope you guys get accepted into the college of your choice.
Hey Jenn. Glad you had a happy holidays. Between Christmas with your family and shopping in LA, you must have have like no time for yourself. And sorry about your New Year's episode. I know what it feels like to have a friend you really trust bite you where it hurts the most. But don't worry, things will hopefully smooth out in time. You are a really great person to talk to. I'm glad we are friends. I would say good luck getting into to Davis but...ah heck. I hope you get into Davis!!! All the best!

Number...I really dunno. Oh well. I would have to say my holiday went by too fast. I started to work at Mervyns with my aunt and cuz and we had a blast. I learned so much there. I also got to spend almost the entire break at her house too! I would have to say the best part of my break would be when I worked an overnighter over at Mervyns. That was Christmas night and right after dinner, I had to take a nap at 7 and woke up at 9:30. We left for work at 10 and i didn't come home till 11 the next day. I had so much fun I didn't even realize I was tired.

The worst part of my break would have to be when my grandma got sick the day after Christmas and we had to take her to the doctor. She was like really sick and the doctor didn't say too many things to reassure us. But, thank god, she got better a few days later and was able to come home. (she was actually smilin' too!) It sucked because it made me realize how much I had taken my already sick grandma for granted and how I will never be able to replace the moments I spent at her house watching tv instead of spending time with her...I learned from my mistake at least.

For the next six months, I know I haven't been on certain people's good side. I hope to change their minds soon. I also really want to keep my grades up while playing a spring sport (haven't decided which one I should play though...) and pass both my AP exams. I will have to fight distractions of every sort, battle with textbooks, and triumph over my bad habits in order to succeed...

On a lighter note, I hope everyone has a fantastic third quarter!
Sam,

I am glad that your grandmother is doing better. I have a friend in a similar situation, and it is very difficult to know exactly what to do.

As for school, find the sport you really enjoy. Because that is what life comes down to - a serious of positive moments - so just make the best of what options you have.

the best part of my break was when i went to LA the day after xmas and came home the day before new yrs eve. i went and just hung out wit some of my friends that live down there. it was the best part coz i left brentwood and saw the actual world and was chillin with my friends that i havent seen for a while and ive missed. the worst part was when my alarm went off on tuesday morning at 6:30AM!!! i think we all know why it was the worst part. and ive never been the same since...:(1
I definitely had the same worst part! And i honestly laughed out loud with the "i haven't been the same since"...:-) Anyways it is always good to venture from Brentwood and I'm glad u had fun with your friends from LA. Good luck with that 6:30 alarm clock.

Best part of my two week break..Hm. Christmas dinner was really good. Any time you eat crab cakes and sugar shrimp is awesome. New Years Eve was really fun too. Ate dinner w/ family and then went to my friend's house and the gang watched movies all night. Becoming a gamer and beating Jak 3 with my little brother was really relaxing. Sometimes it is fun to be totally unproductive. Worst part. Evil homework. Yep 7 calc problems a day. Plus if you forget you get a little more each day. And Heart of Darkness, w/ 9 summaries and a symbol search. I hate not being able to fully relax b/c you know you should be doing homework. Eew.
I would like to get the Paw Print project completed nicely. Deciding what I want to do with my life would be good, or at least picking a college. I would really like to become closer to the neat people that compose our class. It would help if people would initiate conversations with me. I'm really bad at that, but if you start one I can somewhat help out. Tho I may bore u so be forewarned. :P Input for what u guys would like to get out of this project. Ali and I inherited it from last years class but I would like to make it this class's maybe change it up and hopefully it really will inspire school spirit. Life decisions are pretty difficult but support is good. :) I miss sleeping in. :( Kelly
Kelly,

I thoroughly understand being fully unproductive. I have never been more lazy than I have in the last two weeks. But, like you, I couldn't truly relax, because there is so much to be done.

And, you DO NOT BORE people. You are really interesting. I know from many conversations that I have had wtih you :)

Alright then. The best part of my two week break was uhh I'm not really sure. I guess it would be my trip to San Francisco with a couple friends of mine that I haven't seen in a really long time.
The worst part of my break was definitely having to wake up at 5:55 AM on Tuesday January 5th with a super sore back. Ouchers.

In the next six months my main goal would be GRADES. I'm not sure anybody can really help me with this because it's more of a mental issue with me...Considering I don't really care. But if it makes my parents happy I guess I will try to bring them up to where they used to be.
Also I'd really like to get this "Day on the Green" thing to work, because I think it would be a really awesome time. For this I will need much help from Nick and Mrs. Branstetter, and Rod cause she has uber music knowledge.

-Joseph Roth
same with me!! isnt it the best when you leave bwood and hang out in big cities with friends! i think it is. and that sux that u woke up BEFORE 6 just bcoz ur back hurt. and then had 2 go 2 school. i kno how u feel buddy joe about the whole grades thng. my grades used to be heka good and then this yr it was really hard so i just gave up and didnt care anymore. but then i got a F and i realized how bad thngs had really got. so now i really gotta focus. if u need help with any hw or anythng...let me kno. MAYBE i can help. u probably dont, but just in case. and what's day on the green??? -andrea

The best part of my two week break was probably christams eve becuase it was good to see our friends that I have not seen for awhile. The worst part of my two week break was going all through San Fransico with my sister and her friends trying to find some pointless store. In the next six months of school i want to get money for the freshmen class so we can actually put on a dance. We need the support of the rest of our class to do so.

My winter break was really boring, and really long. There wasn't anything that was exceptionally great or bad. I can't even say that I enjoyed sleeping in because, I can never sleep past 8am. Don't ask why, it's just weird!!! However, something that really sucked happened to my sister, Jessica. Her flight was delayed 10 minutes from the Oakland Airport to the LAX, and her transfer plane to Santa Barbara left her and her friend. They almost ended up having to stay at the LAX all night, but luckily there was two open seats on another flight to Santa Barbara. And then when she got to Santa Barbara there was a really big thunderstorm and they had to pick up there luggage outside. They waited, and waited, and waited for my sister's luggage until they were so wet, they looked like they had jumped into a swimming pool. My sister's luggage never got there, and the people said that they didn't know where it was and since a lot of flights were cancelled, they probably just kind of sent somewhere. My sister was furious, because she had all her Christmas presents and almost all her close in her luggage. Fortunately, she got her luggage two days later.

Now to the next question...
Some of my goals for the next six months are to get good grades, and do something that will give me a feeling of accomplishment, because for some reason I don't have that right know-and that really bugs me because it makes me feel like I'm not putting forth enough effort or something. Also, I really need to decide if I'm going to Heritage of not! And, at whichever school I go to I know I'll run for something, I'm not sure what, but I know I will. If, I don't win I'd still wan't to be in Leadership though! (I wonder if Heritage is having a Leadership class?)

I totally know what you mean about the grades. I've been getting straight A's since 8th grade, and its come naturally to me, but in math ive had to work extra extra hard for a B and so I feel the same way you do!! Thats one of my goals too, to get better grades...but I forgot to put it!! Oopps! Yeah and you so cannot go to Heritage next year, what would we all do without our Treasurer??
