L.P.D. [06 Apr 2005|09:01pm]
[ mood | determined ]

Well, I heard back from L.P.D.
The letter said that my application is now inactive due to my driving record having -3 points, you can't have more than -2 to get hired with them, I believe. I sent them an email asking if I was able to go to the driving school again if that would clear it up and i could reactivate my application, but the officer said I had to wait for at least a year before I reapply since the tickets were so close together. So... now I'm hoping I don't get any more speeding tickets all year long. I can do that.. I know I can.

Well anyway, meantime, I have to volunteer somewhere for Christian service for LU next year which is like community service, so I'm going try the VA State Police and see if they take volunteers, and check some other local departments out.

That's about it. I gotta go finish studying for my 2 exams tomorrow. Later!

This past weekend! [28 Mar 2005|01:46pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

This past weekend was absolutely the best!!

Well Friday night, I went on the police ride-along which was a ton of fun. I don't know if I'm supposed to give out all the little details because they told me before it started I can't tell my friends everything that happens, so I just made a private entry about the whole ride along. That was from 7-11 even though the cop finally got there at 7:30 to pick me up. After that, I went with Casey to Wal Mart.

Then Saturday, I played in a basketball marathon with my church youth group up at VES. How it works it you play 3 games at first to place how good you are, so in the elimination round, they place you with teams they think would be a good match for you. Well anyway, the girl's team won the first of the three games, then lost the last two. The boys lost all three of theirs. Then in the elimination round, the guys won their first game and went on to the 2nd where they lost. The girls lost the first one and were eliminated. That really sucked. Yesterday and today, I have been completely sore, because of all the times I was elbowed and hit and what not. All my muscles hurt too. After that, I went to Casey's and watched a movie about how bad Mickey D's is bad for you. Never gonna eat at McDonalds again.

Sunday, I went to the Easter Sunrise service at 6:30, went home took a 2 1/2 hr nap, went to the regular church service, went to wal mart wit my mom, came home to wait for my sister and niece to come over, played with my niece, and then studied for my philosophy test the rest of the night.

Today, slept till 9:30, so once again I didn't get up for my 8:00 class. However, I did go to my Old Testament class at 12:30, and now I'm waiting for my Philosophy class so I can go and fail the test, even though I studied for 3 hrs and am about to go study for the next hour if I don't end up falling asleep.

Then tonight, I have to go to work at 5:00 with all my muscles hurting, so I'm gonna be a great pain. Fun. . .

Great mood! [25 Mar 2005|09:20am]
[ mood | fabulous ]

I am no longer in that snappy and edgy mood that I was talking about earlier. I am actually in a great mood this morning. Part of it might be that I slept in longer than usual cuz I didn't go to my 8:00 class, but hey now I am feeling wide awake. And the other part might be that I get paid today which I am in a great need for money, so this is great news for me! And the other part of why I am in a fabulous mood is the fact that the police ride-along is tonight!

So yeah, I am in a fabulous mood this morning and I am hoping it will last all day, which I am sure it will! So bye everyone! Luv yall!~!~!

[ mood | exhausted ]

I'm sitting in the LU Library right now, waiting for my next class, so I'm trying to find something to do. I'm about to go take a power nap on one of the sofas up in here cuz I need some sleep.

I have been so snappy and edgy lately. Every little thing that someone says makes me get pissed or upset. I think I just need some sleep and I have a lot of stuff going on with classes and everything, and plus I'm sick. Sunday I have to meet one of the guys in my criminology class to discuss our proposal idea. We don't even know what topic we're doing now.

That's all 4 now. I gotta go read for my next class and then take that nap. Later!

It's about time! [18 Mar 2005|02:14pm]
[ mood | good ]

Random things for today---

Well I went to court today and sat there from 9-12 so I could get my extra credit (3 hrs in court) for criminology. I can't really remember half of what happened and I don't have the notes I took with me, so I can't really say much about it. Monday, I think I'm gonna go again just for the fun of it cuz they have a jury trial going on.

Next Friday, I'm gonna try to do a police ride along. I've already filled out the paperwork, I just have to call down there on Monday to see if it's approved. Pretty exciting!! Well at least it is for me anyway.


Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to announce I don't have a crush on anyone. So Stephen, in your face, I don't change boyfriends as much as I do my underwear. So that's right, I don't have a serious crush on anyone as of now. I did like this one guy at LU but I hardly see him anymore which is kinda sad. This is a very random topic but I have had a lot of time to think about random things this week and well yeah, I don't know any guys right now that I am extremely infatuated with. See this is why I always have to stay on the go and hang out with my friends, cuz I think about the most random things.

And finally---

I finally found my LU card and my W-2 form from DQ that I had lost. Time to do taxes.. Well maybe later tonight or tomorrow or next week sometime. I hate doing taxes with a passion.

FINALLY I'm done----

I was gonna go exercise at the LU gym since I finally found my card but I just got this really lazy feeling so I'm about to watch a movie instead.

Later yall!~!~!

Happy St Patrick's Day!!!! [17 Mar 2005|09:08pm]
[ mood | lonely ]

Well, it's been almost a month since my last entry, so I thought I would go ahead and make another entry. Nothing new has really been happening. The latest news is that I'm trying to come up wit a personalized license plate. Pretty interesting huh!? Anyway, this week is spring break, and it's almost over, which I'm sorta disappointed about. I've been working pretty much all week, Monday, Wednesday, and today. And now I'm done working this week, so I get to relax the rest of spring break. Tomorrow, I'm going to court for like 3 hours for extra credit for my criminology class and then after that, I'm not doing anything, so if anyone wants to hang out or anything, feel free to give me a call. As for Saturday, I'm not doing anything during the day (I'll more than likely do the philosophy study guide so i can get better than a D on the 2nd exam), but that night I might do something with Casey or either go to the church basketball practice.

April 10th, I'm gonna be with the good old DQ for a whole year. Longest I've ever held a job!

MAY, LU Gets out finally and summer vacation. Def. going on a beach trip!

June 2nd, I TURN 19!!! 3 months away!!

JULY, hopefully I'll hear back from LPD about that Cadet's position.

I just thought I'd update you all the way till July in case I forgot to make any entries till then.

2nd entry today :) [22 Feb 2005|09:06pm]
[ mood | giddy ]

I'm making an entry just in case I forget to tomorrow, so here it goes.

Today was a pretty fun day. My exam was really easy that I didn't study for, so I'm grateful about that. And I worked out today for a hour and 10 minutes. I was on the bike for 30 minutes, went to the eliptical for 20 minutes (finally made it to twenty minutes.. lol) and then went to the little bike for 20 minutes then I had to leave and go to a meeting.

After that, my friend and I went to the park and went on the swings for about 30 minutes and then we went to Dominoes and got our two pizzas (good stuff right there). And then we came back to my house and watched Taxi, funniest movie ever. She left a lil while ago, so now I'm bored and listening to music and making another entry.

It's a great possibility that I will be skipping my 8:00 class tomorrow, I need a day to sleep in. Stephen, we can skip together once again, lol, as usual. Well anyway, that's it. Later yall!

Life is going great! [22 Feb 2005|10:06am]
[ mood | dorky ]

Criminology has been cancelled again. He cancelled the class last Thursday too, which is really weird. I wonder why he keeps cancelling it. I actually stayed up last night and worked on the proposal that was due today too. I sent an email to the guys in my group with what I wrote up, and they both loved it, so I was just like yay, i'm not as stupid as i thought. Heheh, I'm glad they didn't want to change the topic or change what I wrote at all, because it took me forever. I kind of feel bad though, because I wrote it up myself, but we haven't been talking about what we wanted to do or anything and we waited till last minute, so we needed something written up so I went ahead and did it myself. I don't think they really cared though.

I have 45 minutes till my next class, and I should be studying for the exam in that class, cuz I didn't study last night, but once again, I really don't feel like studying again. I haven't studied hardly any this year for any of my classes, not for 1st semester either. I was on the Dean's List last semester, so I'm hoping even if i don't study this semester, I'll still be able to make that 3.5 GPA.

I've also started to work out at the gym. The pool is open now too, so I'm gonna have to go swimming sometime. Usually all I do is the Eliptical (I think that's what it is called anyway) and that thing kills me everytime, I can't do more than 15 minutes on that at a time, maybe today I can pull off 20. And then I do the 2 different kinds of bikes they have, and if I'm up for it, I'll run on the treadmill. I haven't started lifting weights yet, not sure if I'll ever get around to doing that. The gym is a ton of fun if you have someone there with you that you can socialize with, but if noone is there, then I usually crank up my CD player and listen to some Evanescence or Linkin Park or something like that. I think I'm starting to feel the effects of it in my legs now from working a hour to a hour and a half almost every day. Yesterday I only worked out for like hour, but today I'm probably gonna work out from 3-4:30, cuz I have a meeting at 4:30-5:30, then I'm going for pizza after that to gain back all those calories I lost. What a great way to lose wait, huh!?

Okay, I still got 25 minutes to kill until my next class and still not studying. I guess it's a good thing that I have so much spare time, so now I can write in this journal again, and all you nosey people can know what I'm up to in life :)

I had to switch everyday that I was working this week with a different day cuz I have so many tests going on which I am goin to study for, actually only two I'm gonna study for (history and philosophy). I asked Joseph if he could work for me today, because I have a meeting and won't be able to get to work on time and plus I'm gonna start studying for Philosophy (maybe, if I don't procrastinate again). Then Thursday I have to work, but I might switch days with William and work Friday night instead (even though I am going to hate it with a passion-Friday nights always suck), because I have to study for my Philosophy exam which is on Friday. Our Philosophy teacher made us feel really good when he told us the class average is usually 60-65 on his exams. I was just like greatttt. The only day that is staying the same is Saturday from 11-5. I'll stick with that, because Saturdays aren't that bad during the day.

I think this entry is gettin long enough, so I'll think I'll call it quits now, and maybe I will study for about 10 minutes for my next exam (perhaps). Later yall!

bored [18 Feb 2005|01:49pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Well, I'm waiting for my next class to start, and I am bored out of my mind. I wish I brought my money with me so I could get something to eat or something. I still got till 3:20 to sit around in the library trying to find stuff to do. I usually just come up in here and read the chapter for class and take a hour and a half nap. My life is interesting in case you couldn't tell. This weekend is college for a weekend, so it's really crowded up here. I skipped my 8:00 class this morning cuz I still didn't feel good, and plus I have to work tonite so I was trying to get all the sleep I can get so I won't be in a bad mood at work.
And here's something that I haven't told anyone but my best friend and my brother. I'm dying my hair, well it's gonna be pretty much the same color as it is now. Underneath it's gonna be this dark auburn color and on top, it's gonna be strawberry blonde. So I'm not doing anything too dramatic and dying it completely blonde. I'm excited. I'm doing it tomorrow, so we'll see what it'll look like. My parents are gonna be pissed, cuz they don't like me doing anything to my hair, but I'm 18 now, so they'll just have to deal wit it. I'm gonna be 19 in like 4 months. This year has gone by so fast. It seems just like just yesterday when I turned 18.
My brother is gonna be gettin his learner's permit pretty soon. Watch out Virginia, you got two crazy drivers out there now. Hehe. The cops will be pulling one of us over and then going after the other one. I can see it now.
Well, that's about it, I still have a hour and 20 minutes, so I'll probably surf around online and then go read the chapter and then take a nice, long nap. Later!

Been a long time! [17 Feb 2005|09:34am]
[ mood | sick ]

Wow.. It's been forever since I've written in this thing. My last couple entries were private, but I feel like making a public one right now, because I don't really have anything too personal to write this morning. My Criminology class was cancelled, so now I have a hour and a half to waste doing nothing at all. I really didn't wanna even come to school today, because I feel so sick and I'm tired. In case you can't tell, I'm in a whiney mood right now too. Sorry. I had to work last nite, and I was in a horrible mood, you can just ask the guys I had to work with. Like I said, that's all I'm gonna write today, nothing too personal.

Haven't written in a while.. [05 Nov 2004|05:06pm]
[ mood | energetic ]

You guys, I have not written in over a month, even in my private entries. I have been so busy with college and everything. It's crazy! Nothing really exciting has happened lately or if it has, I just can't remember. I have to work all weekend, so this weekend I'm gonna be really busy. I helped out with Scaremare one night, which I absolutely hated. I said I was gonna have a blast before I went, but it was horrible. I was in a room with a strobe light for 6 hours and the dust was driving me crazy. Well that's all I can really think about to write right now. I have to go make a private entry now. Later!

Annual Marine Mudrun 2004 [27 Sep 2004|08:20pm]
I ran in the marine mudrun this past Saturday. It was so much fun! I am so doing it again next year! It was crazy though! We got there and there were so many people. We got our packets and then I kept telling Nathan and Chris that they had to run with me and they couldn't leave me. Then Jay asked if I wanted him to run, and i was like yes, yes, yes. So the whole race, I was running with Jay. I am so glad he decided to run, because I really didn't want to go through all of those obstacles by myself. We had to go under this tunnel thing, go through a river that came above my waist, go threw mud that came above our ankles, go up a huge mountain/cliff thingy, and then the last thing was crawl through a mud pit. The mud pit tore up my knees, I thought it would be nice, gooshy mud, but there were all these rocks and stuff in it. The marines were yelling at people and like dunking their heads under the mud, i was like omg omg omg... please don't look at me or come near me. One of them came near me, so I put half my head under so he wouldn't push me under the mud. I was so scared. Finally I finished. Jay said that when i saw the finish line, I looked back at him, then looked at the finish line, then looked at him, and took off running. I thought that was pretty funny the way he said it. I just wanted to get the race over with. It was a 5 K run which was like 3.1 miles, and I finished it in 45:15. Jay said I coulda probably finished it faster than that if I didn't stick with him the whole time, but oh well, it was still fun. I'm just glad I didn't get sick or give up. My leg muscles are killing me now and my knees are still all scratched up. Brett, Nate, and Chris also ran in it. I can't remember what Brett got, but Nathan and Chris got like 31 minutes and something.

When I got home I took like a 30 minute shower, and I ended up using like 6 cue tips on each ear to get out all the mud. It was so gross!!! Then I just rested at home, and that night I went to the bible study to give my testimony. Jay just asked me questions, so I didn't have to exactly give my testimony. I was just like thank God, cuz I had no idea what I was gonna say.

That was my experience on Saturday! It totally rocked!!

Hey! Here is another one of my public entries.

I am driving my new car now and I absolutely love it.

I am gonna be in Scaremare this year. I'm either going to be in the Morgue Room or the Camo Confusion room. I'm not exactly sure what I will be doing, but it doesn't matter. I'm gonna have a blast. I'm just scared I'm gonna end up gettin punched in the nose.

That's it for this entry.

[ mood | contemplative ]

Well you guys. I'm gonna start making the rest of my entries just a private entry so noone but myself can read them, because I'm just not liking the idea of everyone knowing what my personal life is consisting of, and i need to say some stuff that I just cannot say out in the open where everyone can read it, i'm talking about private stuff, ya know. I might make a public one every now and then, but i doubt it. So I just wanted to share that all with you.

It's over! [27 Aug 2004|11:23am]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Well, I made it through the oral review board yesterday. The lady in charge called me and asked if i could move it up till 2, so I said yeah. I was so scared when i went. I'm just so glad it's over with now. There was a guy there who goes to Liberty too I started talking with. He was getting interviewed right before me. Anyway, I found out we're both in the same Criminal Justice class which totally rocks! I went in there and the Lt. was introducing me to the panel, and i was like can i shake your hands, and they were just like sure. It was so embarrassing, I think I was the only person who shook their hands. There were five of them and they all asked me 2 questions. I think I answered them all good, except for maybe one or two of them. I think I did a pretty good job. I don't think I showed my nervousness at all. And I said something really stupid which made them laugh. Cuz they asked what was one thing i liked about myself and one thing i want to change. So I said i like my personality, but i want to have more physical strength. And then i added I just need a tad bit more muscle. It was funny.

Well, that's it. I'll find out if I passed that or not in the next couple of days.

College Life! [25 Aug 2004|02:48pm]
[ mood | confused ]

Well college life is gettin to be a lot better! It's basically just like high school, I just go to the classes and go home. I'm too lazy now to just hang around on campus after my classes are up with. In between classes, I'm usually hanging out in the library or that Hangar just because I get bored for like 2 hours and don't wanna leave and lose my good parking spot.

I'm trying to find another class to add to my schedule right now. My first two classes were today and I think I'm gonna like both of them. GNED rocked! That professor is really cool.

Tomorrow I have my interview with L.P.D. SO I hope I do a good job. I'm so nervous!!

College has started! [20 Aug 2004|12:03pm]
[ mood | calm ]

Well, college has finally started. I'm actually in Liberty's library right now waiting for my class to start. We had workshops and freshman seminar all this week. I must admit I am worn down right now. I have to work tomorrow, and I was just hoping to get some extra rest that day, but i can see that's not gonna happen at all. I don't know why they say you gain weight when you're in college. I have not been eating anything, and I think i'm losing weight, but I'm not complaining. The only time I really have time to eat now is when I get home at night. I haven't been getting home till like 10:30 each night.

I am officially staying in my new house now. It's kinda scary staying in that house all by myself till Sarah gets back in town. I'm just grateful she's getting back Sunday night. However, it is peaceful to finally get some time to myself.

Well, that's about it now. Later!

So much stuff! Freakin out!! [16 Aug 2004|12:52pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

Okay everyone!

I am so confused! The college process is the worst thing in the world! I don't understand what's going on! I mean I kinda do but I kinda don't. And I've officially moved into my new house with my cousin. My permanent residence is still with my parents, but I just stay with my cousin. It's gonna be tons of fun! I'm really excited! I'm so nervous though, because I have to stay there all this week by myself because my cousin is out of town.

Well, I'm about to go do my college stuff, so later everyone!

my nerves. . . . [06 Aug 2004|01:10am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

Wow... this has been a nerve-racking week! It's crazy! I had to go to court Wednesday! OMG! The judge was so nice! Half of you people have heard this story already, but oh well. I was so freakin scared when he called my name. I went up there and he was like Good afternoon Ms. Barbour. And i was just like good afternoon. It was so embarrassing, my voice was all shaky and everything. Then he asked if i was guilty or not guilty, so i said guilty. Then he asked if i wanted to say anything else, so I was just like well I went to the defensive driving class, so now i think i am a much better driver. I go the speed limit now because of this officer. And I'm really sorry, i guess thats all i can say. My voice was so shaky this whole time. He reduced the speed down to 19 over so it wouldn't be reckless driving, and I was so grateful. I didn't know what to say and my fine was only 95 bucks instead of the 150 I thought it would be.

Thursday i went hiking with my youth group. It was very muddy, that's all i have to say. And a couple of times, it seemed like we were stuck in a couple of scenes from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

I had to work yesterday, today, and then tomorrow for 8 hours. I am being worn out, I swear. I asked off all next week, because i'm helping out with something church related, so i'm looking foward to that!
