I am in Geography class. We are supposed to be studying for the test on Tuesday.

Why did I even bother coming in to class today? I should have stayed home until my next class at 4:00.


Oh well, I will study what I can, but I don't hold any high hopes. Every time he goes over stuff that will be on the test, he covers stuff he never mentioned before.

So instead of a basic review, he is still teaching while doing the review. So does that mean some of the stuff on the test will be completely unknown to us?

I still call Australia home

I am having such a horrible day. I have never felt so stupid in my life.

I read the NIC Report and did an analysis paper on it. No big deal, right? Except when we discussed the report in class today, I totally did not get out of it the same things everyone else did.

They saw things in that report I had no clue about.

Where do they get this stuff????

I had to do an analysis paper of Thoreau's Civil Disobedience, too. I have had to rewrite that sucker 5 times! I am just not getting this crap.

Am I too old to go back to school? Or just too stupid?


I just want to sit in a corner and hide at this point. Don't call on me, don't talk to me...don't even acknowledge my presence. Just. leave. me. alone.

Another Marine?

Lucas informed us last night that he had an appointment this morning with the Marine recruiter.

He has talked of joining the military off and on for several months, but this is the first time he has had a face-to-face talk with one other than at the county fair. He had lots of questions and I hope the Sgt answered them all.

He told me today that they gave him an abbreviated version of the ASVAB and he scored a 35. I guess that is about average.

The Sgt told him that the sooner he decided whether he wants to join or not, the better.

So I may have two sons in the Marines very soon. I don't know whether to be very proud or very scared.

I guess I am both.


I woke up this morning shaking.

I dreamed I was in California to see Anthony. I was walking along the oceanfront. I was on the road, and there was a large building with windows in it between me and the ocean.

As I passed the building, I looked through the windows to the ocean and thought, "Is that a wave?"

About that time, the wave broke over the top of the building. There was a black pickup parked by the road, so I ran to it and held on to the side mirror. I held my breath as the wave broke over me. Suddenly, the water was all gone.

Then I started running inland. I went a few blocks and realized the ocean was that way, too. So I started North to get to my hotel.

As I got to the walkway over the river, I realized the walkway had been knocked down and there was no way to cross the river at that location.

I started climbing to higher ground. There were a lot of people up on the cliff. We looked out over the ocean. There were no more big waves coming, but there were a LOT of waves.

I used my cell phone to call my mom in Oregon. I was asking her if there was a Tsunami warning out. She was saying no when another one hit, but I was high enough I was not hit. I also remember her asking if I was bringing Anthony home with me. I just laughed and said, "I wish."

The next thing I know I am running across some parking lot headed for the motel.

Then the alarm went off.

I hate tsunamis.
