All right, here we go...
The best part of my two week break was the time OFF. I felt so stress-free. No homework (except for AP US, which i put off until the last weekend...), no obligations, time to myself for once! Then back to school...and back to normal life. I'd say the worst part of my break was that my best friend's boyfriend broke up with her, and broke her heart. I hate seeing her like that... And also, my boyfriend was gone in Australia for 3 weeks playing baseball, so I didn't get to see him for Christmas or New Year's. But, he's back now and I get to see him this weekend! =]

In the next six months left of school, I'd like to be able to continue to balance my schedule...classes, softball, Best Buddies, leadership, AP exams...it just feels like SO MUCH sometimes. The only assistance that I could use in all of it is from my Best Buddies officers...I really need to do more delegating! I don't see any obstacles to my goals...except myself. I just have to keep my priorities straight. If I do things like I did last semester, then I'll be happy. Also, I want to keep involved with Leadership. Trista, Jennifer, Maria, and I are in charge of the Take Back the Night event. I want that to be successful. And I need to work with Austin on the Teacher of the Month certificates...as soon as those dang frames come in!
I think that's about it...see you guys tomorrow!

I hate breakups too... lately ive been very like all about women power so when i see a girl all depressed because of a guy, i just want to send her on oprah! Australia and baseball! how fun! thats an expierence, good for him
The best part of my break was New Years Eve when I went over to the Rigney's house, and hung out and had lots of fun. The worst part of my break, was watching my younger brother when my parents were at work, because I wasnt able to do anything and has to clean the house(which I hate!) Wow....there's only six moths left. I would like to accomplish knowing that I worked really hard throughout the year. Also that The Black and White Ball goes smoothly and all four of us freshmen come out in one piece, and that I made a difference in the leadership class and with the class of 2008. In accomplishing this goal I will need the help of Karlee, Belinda and Casey, becasue we need to work together in order to finish the year off great. Also we definetley need the mentorship of Ms. Rod because I seriously dont know what we would do without her. The obstacles in achieving my goal would probably be procrastination for the black and white ball and not knowing exactly what I am supposed to be doing. Hopefully I will be able to finish this year with all of my goals achieved to the highest standard.

wow break was insane! clark(my brother) came which is always good, but i think the best part of break was i got to redo bobby's room and then move in to it while he had to move into the smaller room. YESSSSSSSSSSSS! so my room is really cute now!! :) umm the worst part of my break was that i was super sick almost the whole time and i had to go to the doctors and get medicine and get my blood taken to see if i had this stomach thing. eeekkk! it really sucked.

So in the next 6 monthes i want to get my permit, or at least be almost done with drivers ed!! yeah!! but on a leadership standpoint i want to get our class out of debt. that is our main priority right now. And we got to finish selling t-shirts. it is really hard because our class is really not spirited and hate being freshman. i think that is really stupid and being a freshman isnt that bad! o well. we are trying! o and i dont really know what leadership can do to help us with this.

Okay... so for the two week break I would have to say that not having to get up and go to soccer was the most refreshing. I do miss the girls and the game, but i sure do not miss the practices or the coach. I also enjoyed spending time with Brian. We went to the city a couple of times, and I love san fran. The worst part would have to be the homework because who wants to do homework over the break? I also did not enyoy having to get up the first day back. I think that is the worst feeling in the world, getting out of your nice, warm, comfortable bed.
For the next six months, i would just like to get through the rest of the year without stressing out over stupid things or the fact that I will be out of high school in 5 months. Its so crazy to think that I will be living on my own in a matter of no time. I don't know wether to be happy, scared, sad or nervous. I am guessing all of the above. I am excited for the next quarter in leadership, I hope everyone pulls through with all there jobs! Keep up on all your great work!--- Heather
hey if you need help with living on your own, we can make a chart of how to do your laundry... and a day to day calender that reminds you TAKE A SHOWER!

I couldn't tell you my best part of break because it would just be soo wrong. JUST KIDDING! My best part of break was being able to spend the day in Berkeley by myself with my sister and just hanging out with her for the day. I love doing that kind of stuff.
The worst part was Christmas day, because i had to spend it with my parents both today. It has always been really hard for me because christmas is a time for jealousy between them and we are alone while tehe rest of our family is in Texas. Not fun to spend your day with only your best friend(Hannah) and two parents that dont get along.

In the next six months I want to get out of here. I want to get a job and just get my life back on the right track. I plan on making some major changes in the next six months with some of my friends, family, and life style and what i need msot is support.
Lately I have been acting up a lot lately, as most of you can see, and i havent been on my best behavior at home. In the last year i have accomplished getting referrals from people who dont give referrals, a ticket, my car taken away, and have engaged in some morally wrong things.
My last year of high school i want to spend it preparing for college, because i am so determined to live brentwood and to go to texas and do what i have been dreaming about for so long. I need to get back on the right track, stop acting up. I think because i just get so bored with things and when i dont get what i want i just throw tantrums.
the hardest thing about me getting help is that i dont like people telling me what to do or helping me. um.. and i am VERY HARD HEADED.
i need something to be happy about, to look forward to, or else i wont make it through this year without quitting and giving up on everything i have come to love in life.

Good day Hayley. I'm gonna give some advice, which I should take myself. Take some time off from stress. Focus on school. If your friends call you to go out, hang, whatever, just stay home. It's hard at first, because you feel as though you're missing out, but the results will be better. Get homework done, bring up grades, and spend more quality time with your sister. After a while, you'll feel satisfied, as your life will now be in order. Do you know what I'm saying? Am I rambling? I have a tendency to do that. I think I sound like Dr. Phil. Oh well, just separate yourself from stress, be happy, chill out, just get in a good place. We're here for ya.

-Nick

P.S.- I apologize for the cheesiness, but it will work, I swear. Really.

The pest part of my break was the sleeping in!
Seriously I became a nightperson in this two weeks--staying up till like five in the morning and getting up the next day around one.
It was nice to know, that there was nothing that you have to do (like homework..) and you can just stay in bed till whenever you want and relaxx.
I went to alot of parties and met new people there, which was really cool.
The worst thing...actually I can't really remember any bad thing during my break. I mean I had my bad days but doesn't everybody sometimes...?

i think the worst part of break was actually the last day day leadership was together... even though that's not technically break.anyways, I went to throw a gluestick at nick and it slipped and accidently hit you. I still feel really really really really really really really really bad about that.so i just wanted to say i'm sorry one more time.

Brett Everhart out... i really hate Ryan Seacrest.

sure I forgot the half...
In the next six moth I just want to enjoy my life here in America, cause who knows when I get the chance to come back?!
I also want to keep my grades like they are right now so I can skip the 11th grade back home in good old Germany and go right into the 12th.
For Leadership I hope the Project Jen, Trista, Christina and me are working on will be a success. I want it to be huge but it's gonna be alot of work.I think we'll need all help we can get.

The best part of my break was new years eve or when i got my teeth pulled because although there as pain there was "pain reliever" that would explain that. I really got to bond with my closest friends and my family. The worst was when i a had bad headachesand also seeing so many dumb people.

By the end of the school year i want to maintain a very good grade pint average. I guess ill need help from kelly cuz she helps me the best and ill need to have more self determination. The obstacles: TEST

Tus dientes! AY YA YAY! Que bueno que yo no fui. Que bueno que te la pasaste bien con tu familia, a mi me encanta estar con mi familia, tambien con todos mi chiqiyos! Mucha gente te admira alicita... debes de estar muy feliz deso... hasta luego....
:)
I guess I should answer my own question too.

The best part of my break was going on vacation with my family. Every year I go on vacation with the fam and this year we went down south. If you ever get a chance to go Getty museum, check it out. Very cool and FREE. The other part of break that was cool was fixing a friendship that's been on the rocks. If anyone gets a chance to do so, jump at the opportunity.

Worst part of break - Hmmm, I really can't think of one. My New Year's was lame, but it usually is lame. My friends have lame ideas as a general.

In the next six months, I would like to accomplish:
1. Apply for and GET English Department Head
2. Finish my Clear Credential
3. Take GRE and get a good score
4. RELAX (aka - no kidney stones or heart problems)
5. Be a good "backbone" for Lship

Hey everybody!!!
Well now I'm not exactly sure what the best part of my break could have been, I didn't do too much. I did a LOT of shopping, which means new stuff for me, lol! Umm...I slept a ton and I LUCKILY had a break from cheerleading for two weeks, so i guess that this could have been the best part. No cheer drama!!! The worst part?! Having to go back to cheer, jk...nothing really went badly. I just never made it up to the snow to go SNOWBOARDING or went anywhere too exciting. o well, spring break is in a couple weeks, can't wait!!
Oops i forgot the second part!! What would I like to accomplish?!?! I would like to acheive a better grade in AP ENGLISH, just got to keep doing better on those essays!!! lol...Umm since this is my first year in leadership and that I am doing Mr. Liberty with Mariela ad Jared, I hope to have it go smoothly and it be another sold out show. Like you said Ms. Rod no naked, crazy boys(Mariela nad I may just have to beat them up this year) jk!! As far as obstacles and help that I may be needing, hmmmm....well I think that it's up to me to become an even better writer and as for Mr. Liberty, Mariela and Ms. Rod know absolutely everything to keep me on my toes about this production.

Wow... where to start... before anything, i read everybody posts, they are pretty good and i did learn some things i didnt know... some people in this class are funnier than i thought. ok so my best part of the break was hawaii! it was so fun and really relaxing, my fam and i had never gone on a family vaca so it was nice. my worst part was that my aunt esther passed away, she was sick with cancer and was diagnosed last thanksgiving. I wasw with her her last few days and i knew she was suffering so when she passed i in a way felt relieved she wasnt hurting anymore. the wierd thing is she passed away dec 29th and my grandma passed away a few years back on jan 29th... well mayby its not that wierd, lol. umm.. 6 months left, thats scary to me. well im not sure where im going to school yet, its hard when your parents are set your not leaving, they dont realize what i do in school and stuff so to them its like... your leaving for school... who does that!? they believe in me staying home for 2 years then going to somewhere far enough for them to just 'stop by'... i feel i worked too hard to do that. Obstacles... getting sidetracked, mr liberty.. lol, my mom and dad..
The best part of my two week break was when my friend Bob came up from So Cal. My worst part was I don't remember. I'd like to find out what path (college, military, etc...) is best for me to find a niche for myself, I just need to talk to more experienced people in order to better understand what path is best for me. I'll have to overcome obstacles such as time and decision making.

The best part of this two week break that we just had was my birthday, i am now 17! I guess the reason this was the best is cuz now i can legally rent or buy or see rated R movies, such an accomplishment.....

The worst would be on Christmas when my sister who has not called or come to visit in 8 years called our Dad and told him to come by. He had me come with him, and now he has four grandchildren that he didnt even know about, and there was family there i had never known i had.....it was awkward.... I was the worst because i felt out of place and i did not know what to do with myself, or how to act.

There are many things that i want to accomplish on a emotional level mainly..... I am pretty sure this will take awhile, baby steps are good, so in these six months i hope to ....
1) Be OK with the fact that i got a 3.8 and that it might happen again, i am not perfect (nobody is)
2) Try and understand the fact that my parents are apart and i cant force them together and i cant take my angry feelings out on my mom, its not entirly her fault
3) I hope to try and at least look at the postive side in everything even if i dont want to ...... at least acknowledge there is a good side
4) Stand up for myself and others, not taking anyones shit towards me or my friends or anyone else, every one is equal and should be treated that way

I guess to accomplish this deals with alot about myself, before i was very secluded with everything i felt and in a way i still am, only one person knows everything i have done or thought (thank you heather pace) and it took me way to long to get that off my chest, but also i started just being with other people so i dont over analize anything and my mind can rest (thank you Brett, Chris (even though you turned out not so good, you did help me a lot there) and again Pace) I need to get overmyself and realize i do not rule the world.
sorry i didnt put my name i forgot

DANIELLE SCHIRMER
that's right, i stay up all night and make soap. Then, the next day i go to a friend's basement and fight people in my "special club of badasses.alright so i don't do that, but it would be cool if i really was in a fight club... actually it wouldn't b/c i'd get my ass whooped.

well, the best part of break was the last sunday when i went snowboarding during the last day of that big storm. the snow was so powdery...sorry i just bust in my boxer briefs just thinking about how nice the snow was.
The worst part of break was basketball at 3:00 everyday. running and drills are tons of fun.
with these 6 months left i hope to get accepted by Berkeley
and get the stack of scholarship apps. filled. Rod can help me and so can Danielle b/c she pretty muchtold me what to write on one of my college essays.
i also hope to go snowboarding 20 times in the next 3 1/2 months( let's hope for a long winter.also keep my grades up.this is long.
BRETT IM NEVER TALKING TO YOU AGAIN!!!

Much love
Danielle
