Big meet today, ran a PR, 2:29.3. good enough for 4th place. Almost got 3rd. 3rd placer ran about .2 seconds faster than me. I didn't feel too bad about getting 4th because first and second were the two top 800 runners in teh state. and they are mighty fast.

if everything goes well.......
IM GETTIN A NEW CAR!!!! YAY!!! no more FR SALE (thats the license plate on my g-pas car that ive been driving)!!!! The one im gettin is exactly like my old car, only red. My g-pa found it for real cheap and we were just gunna use it for parts, and its front end (cuz my old car needs a whole new front end), but when they went to look at it, they saw its in excellent condition, just something is wrong with the engine. but my gpa can use the parts on my old car to fix it, and it will be just dandy. im so excited!

After school today, i was walking with alex to our cars, and he hocked (sp?) a big lugie (sp? again) and spit it out. I said 'Wow, thats gross' and he responds 'u spent Saturday night taking care of me while i was puking my guts out, and u think me spitting is gross?' hmm... good point.
Yes, my saturday night was good until i decided to go inside coulters house to say hi to the boys... as soon as i walked in, im bombarded with people saying 'your boyfriend is real sick! he's throwin up like every 2 minutes! He drank way too much' so i make my way to the bathroom to find him practically laying on the toilet. at first he didnt really respond to me when i talked to him. The only thing he would say was 'im so sorry' He eventually stopped puking long enough to take him to lay down in coulters bed. Quinton (why he was there, i have no idea) brought him some water, and he drank about 2 sips before he had to go throw up again.
Naturally, someone was in the closest bathroom, so we had to take him to the other one and barely made it on time. So for the next hour and a half, i sat in the bathroom with Chris and Alex. There wasnt much i could do, everytime he drank a little bit of water, he'd start throwing up again. so i just sat there, rubbed his back, told him 'its ok', and we put a cold wash cloth on the back of his neck. Chris tried to convince him to get in the shower. but considering alex couldnt even stand up, we figured that wouldnt work well.
Eventually he lays down on the floor of the bathroom and starts to feeling better. Chris, Molly, and i were talking and all of a sudden alex says 'Megan, i bet you dont wanna kiss me right now with my barf breath'... thats was the point when we knew he was feeling better. He started crackin a couple jokes in his half-passed-outness. He went and stayed at chris's house. and much to my surprise, around 1, alex calls to thank me for taking care of him. Im glad he appreciated it, especially since the sound of throwing up usually makes me gag. Great not. not.

OK... so before I thought track was hard... wow. We recently learned that now Coach Stirret is our 'assistant' coach. He said he prolly will miss most of our meets, but by golly, he'll be there for most of our practices. And to be honest, im scared. I know he's tough, and i dunno if IM tough enough to handle it. Im a wuss deep down.

Ya, two nights in a row. Thats bull
|Monday, January 26th, 2004|
well well well... what a slushy day outside. i sorta like snow... but i hate driving in it. im scured. o well, ill get over it.
Last weekend was good. friday, went to the game PIMPED OUT. Lou, lex, molly and i got some old uniforms from the 70's from mr.woods, and borrowed some sweatbands from the boys and wore tall white socks. wow we looked great. haha. we lost... but hey, shit happens. even though our bball team isnt so hot! haha. it was a good time. we then went back to lou's and changed. Meg was havin people over, so we went there for a while. people started to clear out of there, so we went to sholems. it was boring, so we left a little early.
Saturday...phew. what a night. first of all, i was going to get gas out at walmart on 45. im about a 1/2 mile from the mobile and whaddya know, my little shitter runs out of gas. now before you judge me as a COMPLETE idiot, take into account that the gas light hadnt come on, so i figured i plenty to make it to the station... after the fact, i realized that there IS NO GAS LIGHT on the stupid thing. so i had to get Mike Oli to come give me some gas. haha. how humiliating. alex said he was a little hurt i didn't call him to help out. o well, i was just tryin to be nice and let him rest his ankle after hurting it in the game... tryin to be nice and i still do something wrong ;-)
AFter that, went to lou's party... wow, now that was an interesting one. it was COMPLETELY random. it was fun at first when it was all people we knew, then all these people we didnt know started showing up. some of em were rude to lou, in her own house, so i thought that was bogus. a few fights almost broke out. haha, it was funny though. so by the end of the night, it was just weird. all the really drunk people were very humorous though.
Track is hard... much harder than it ever was with Woods, and its only the first week. but hey, maybe we will be good this year! Martinez has very high expectations for us... as in, a few of us can make state. hahaha. good one.
off to do some scholarship searching so my mama will get off my back. Current Mood: sore

As the year goes by, i get the question (as im sure every other senior gets asked) "so do you know what you wanna do yet????" (refering to college and beyond). It's a tough question. I know what i WANT to do. I want to be a pediatric oncologist. AKA, a kid's cancer doctor. But, let's be realistic. i am not smart enough for that stuff. I would probably make it about a week in Medical School. so that kind of sucks.
When i was younger, i always told myself there was no way i would do anything in the medical field. Both my parents have medical backgrounds, and i had no interest at all. But the more i've actually had to sit down and think about what i want to do with my life, i've come to realize that medicine seems to be in my blood (yes, a corny line, i know) and i can't help but be drawn to it. So now, nearing the end of first semester senior year, i kind of have SOME direction, but i dunno if i can do it. depressing, huh? I was thinking sort of maybe a Nurse Practitioner or a Physicians Assistant. from what i hear, they are kind of like more than nurses, yet not quite doctors. so those are some thoughts to ponder.
Wow, i bet that entry made like no sense... but o well... needed to get my random thinkings out.
More studying. Current Mood: contemplative

because i was kinda bored, and even though there were multiple things i SHOULD be doin right now, i decided to fiddle around with my computer and try and make a new icon. I wish it were as creative and insightful as everyone elses, but hey... i tried. ;-) lol. o well. now that i got it figured out, maybe ill try again something with something better. hm. tv time

|BAMMM! WHACK! *METAL CRUNCHING*
my heading is a brief overview of the shitty ending to my shitty week.
On the one day that i choose to go home from lunch in order to save money, i end up with A)$75 ticket B)$100 towing expense and C)god knows how much it will take to fix my car, if it's fixable at all. IRONIC, HUH?!
Yes, as u may have figured out, i got in a wreck... and by no means was it a little fender bender. no.. my car is totaled.
I was going home for lunch, and spaced out and didn't see a stop sign and t-boned a guy flying down the street. Yes, it sucked. The whole front of my car is smashed in. as it happened, i screamed, suddenly felt so panicd that i couldnt breathe and then noticed the AWFUL smell and the smoke on the inside of my car. i get out and don't know whether to cry or pass out. im shaking so bad that i can barely talk. Luckily the guy in the truck was ok. I tried and tried to get ahold of my mom, but she was at an appointment and then she was out to lunch and didnt have her cell phone on. and because im still a minor, the airbags deployed and we couldnt reach my mom, they had no choice but to take me to the ER in the ambulance to get checked out. It took forever to finally get ahold of my mom, so until then i had to sit in the waiting room alone and all i could do was cry. for the next 3 hours, i couldnt stop shaking. They ended up letting me go w/o being checked out, but the nurse said i would prolly have bruises on my arms cuz of the airbags and a sore neck.
Twas a scary afternoon. Probably no car for megan for a long long time. this sucks. its like being a freshman all over again.
If you would like to see the damage to my car... lemme know. my mom took pics. haha Current Mood: scared

|What's been happening lately...
Anatomy is kicking my ass at the moment... all these Acromians and actebelums are getting mixed up in my brain.
Our Bball team just lost to centennial. hm. that would be great if we could beat them in ANYTHIGN this year. ya. it would be wonderful
Got accepted to UI this weekend. pretty exciting, im feeling pretty relieved. the possibiluty of stayin here has become a lot more realistic.
My stepdad is driving me insane. i cannot wait to not live with him anymore. He thinks he's God and he knows EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING. i'm sick of him telling me what HE would do concerning college.i could give a rats ass if he wouldnt go to Illinois, i dont care if he thinks i should go to ISU. Hate to say it, but (this is what my mom told me anyway) he could quite possibly be just jealous, cuz there is no way his kid wouldve gotten into UI. He's late 20's and still tryin to finish school after dropping out/getting kicked out multiple times. grrr. sometimes i just wanna tell him to shut the fuck up. Current Mood: tired

Teachers would assign bunches of hw over Thanksgiving. grrr... o well.
Today is the big day. im waitin for the family to get here. usually we have like 25-30 people on Thanksgiving, but this year its only like 10 or 12. seems weird! I am actually more excited about eating over at lex's house than eating here. teehee. They eat at 4 and we eat at one... so its tradition that i just pop over there later that night and eat their leftovers. Mr.Morgan's food is amazing. they have six different gourmet desserts and i cant wait. haha.
Last night i had to say goodbye to my Sangy-baby (Sangho). i know ive been babbling a lot about him lately. but it was just so cool to have him here. Last night we went to dinner at Friday's, then we went to Sholems. Sholem got pissed cuz the boys brought alcohol into the house, so the boys got very drunk in the garage. Most of those guys are hilarious when they are drunk. and so was Sangho. It was hard to say goodbye at the end of the night, cuz we all know that that could quite possibly be the last time we ever see him. and thats depressing. *sigh* miss him already.
Gunna go help out by *trying* to cook Current Mood: calm

Wow, the past two days have just been so awesome! Even though i was real dumb and procrastinated and didn't start my paper until tonight (its due tomorrow) but hey, im bout 1/2 way done with it and its only 6:30 and i even stopped to eat dinner, talk to the fam, and talk online a little bit, so i think im doin ok.
I've been so happy the past couple days. i love sangho! just love him! He had told me he would get in real late Sunday night, and then after 6th hour Monday, Alex told me Sangho was goin out with joe after school and that night... so we wouldnt see him till he came to school Tues w/Lex. So i hurry up to my 7th hour class...and i sit down in my seat. after a couple seconds, i realize Joe D'amico is sitting next to me... im thinking 'what the hell is joe doing here?????' and it didnt click, but soon, i glance up and a large asian comes rushing towards me and scoops me up in a huge hug. he only stayed in there for like a minute, but it was enough to have me smiling the rest of the class.
Then last night, we went and hung out at Joe's with him and the boys, it was so cool. I was kinda worried that things would be awkward at first since he hasnt been back since just after freshman year. but no, it was llike he'd never been gone, he just back in right where he left off. i love him to death. tomorrow night, big party in his honor, cant wait!! but i dont want him to leave again, I've missed him so much :-(
Went to Maggie's little college signing thingy today. it was so cute. Nancy Strang brought that sparkling 'champagne' stuff. it was adorable. My little Maggie is all grown up. *tear
well, i better get finished with this paper!! Current Mood: ecstatic
