Subject:It's September?!
Time:01:41 pm
Current Mood:contentcontent
Holy cow. I can't believe it's September already. Next thing I know I'll be studying for finals and shopping for X-Mas presents. School is coming up on the 24th. I'm actually looking forward to it. Give me something else to do beside work or not work. Pathetic line up of my days these last few months.

Let's see...my last entry I said I should be going to Vegas and we did. My parents bought me a plane ticket to Vegas so I didn't have to stress out about getting down there. Kelly and Justin were the issues that came up before Vegas. They were engaged and broke up like 3 weeks before leaving. Let's just say going to Vegas, the wedding chapel of the universe, is not the best idea with an ex-engaged couple. Well not including the few awkward moments (seeing a bride all dressed up in the lobby of the hotel) it was a blast. I absolutely love Vegas. I can't wait to take another trip down there. The last night there at Mandalay Bay I won $200 on the slot machines. It was funny because it just continued to roll out the credits and didn't stop for like a good 2 minutes. I had no idea what I won until the cashout voucher printed. Never freaked so easily. LoL! It was definitely a highlight. That night we also went and saw the Blue Man Group. I suggest for anyone going to Vegas to take in a show while you are there. This one was off the wall. It was funny, random, and just plain nuts at times.

The summer was pretty bland for me. I worked mostly. I didn't go anywhere which is actually kind of sad. Not even a day trip anywhere. Oh well, I think I have a trip to plan to take place in the next couple of months. Speaking of trips I think I might take one out to Iowa to visit Katie sometime in the spring. She goes to school at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, IA. Oy....I haven't decided when I'm going just yet. All I know is it's going to be an expensive plane ticket. She has her first day today. On a holiday...haha.

My nephew was born on August 8th at 10 pounds 8 ounces. He's a big boy and he's already accepting applications to play in the NFL. Haha. He's such a cutie in his own way. He already looks like he's 6 months old in some pictures when he isn't even a month old. His name is Nixon Ash (named after my brother Nick and his wife Ashley). I just have to say the name grows on you after a while. (o: Brooklyn just turned 6 on the 14th. I can't believe she's 6! Ellie will be 3 and a half in November. Her birthday is in May. Well that's it for the family news.

I am just working and looking forward to school. I hope to make progress with the little thing called a career choice. Who knows what I'll be doing in 5 years. I hope to have started my career by then. (o: Well I hope all is well. Who knows when I'll update again. (o:

Hello, hello! Just wanted to update since I haven't posted anything since August.

On Christmas we found out my brother Nick and his wife Ashley are expecting their third child. We found out on Thursday that it's going to be a.....BOY!! (o: The Ravins name will carry on! (o: Haha....that's super exciting news. We always thought that the next grandchild would come from Tim and Rachel. Those two are living together in the Portland area. No big news to report there.

I've been working and taking a few classes at PCC. Still don't know what I want to study for my major. Work has gotten busy again because of spring which means softball/baseball season is upon us. YAY! It's nice to have something to do all day, every day instead of some of the day, part of the week.

What else, what else....I should be going to Vegas in a week. I say should because the plans all of a sudden went haywire. Everything was planned out until a few events took place. Hopefully everything will work out because I already paid for a plane ticket home and well....it's non-refundable. And if I change the date on the ticket or any details and use it later there is a $100 fee I have to pay and I have to use it within a year. Boo. So like I said....I hope the whole Vegas plan works out. (o:

Uhh....nothing else major in my life really. Just working here and there and that's about it. I'm going to try to update more often than I have been doing the past year or so. Well.....BYE!

I think it's true what I said about myself 2 months ago. I'm surrounded by death.

Henry Kaulia died Saturday night driving home from Forest Hills Golf course after midnight. He crashed his truck into a ditch and his exact cause of death is still unknown. He was only 45 and will most definitely be missed by the entire population of Gaston seeing that he was their P.E. teacher and any member at FHGC. He was a good man and everyone is still in shock that he is actually gone. I still am. They are having a memorial for him on Friday at 3 at Gaston High School.

Here are two pictures of him that I found.

Hello, thought I'd write something out in here. Uh, today Starbucks is giving away free coffee for two hours. I'm gonna get me some before I go into work. It'll be great. (o:

You know what one thing is great about MySpace? Well I'll tell you....anyone with the internet and friends is more than likely to have a page on there. I found my friend that I lost contact with about 4 years ago cause she went to college and then her parents moved and I didn't have a clue on where to send her any letters of any sort. She lived in Wisconsin and then she moved to Arizona. Anyways my point being I found her on MySpace last week. It was totally awesome. That feeling of not being able to talk to a friend because you can't and then randomly there she is to talk to. It was my highlight of last week.

Also last weekend I had a blast. I went down to Corvallis with Katie to help celebrate for Kelly's 21st. Her birthday was on Sunday so Saturday night we had dinner then went to a house party literally in the front yard of Justin's. And once it hit 12:01 they were off to the bars. And seeing that I'm still only 20 (two months, one week, and one day) I left. Oh before I forget the most repeated line that night has got to be, "PARTY FOUL!" It was hilarious. And seriously the international party word is, "Heeeeeeey!" People are almost always going to chime in. After we left there Katie and I went to her friend's apartment to hang out for a bit. Her roommate was a huge party foul. But we ended up leaving there at 2:15 to driving back home. Kelly called me when we were going through Salem, and she kept telling me, "Thanks so much for coming, Justin says I'm hammered." We ended up getting home at 3:40 and that was the end to our night.

Sunday wasn't too eventful compared to Saturday. Katie had a call in so I took her home at like 11:30 and I met up with James at Shari's to finish Biology hw around 12:30. We were done there around 3'ish and I went home. OH! My parents went on the Shamrock Run earlier that day and they came home and called me to tell me there were going golfing and they would be home right after that. I was expecting them home around 5 right? They got home after 8 because Kyle hit a hole in one. He's part of the hole in one club (you get money from other members of the club if you hit a hole in one) and you are supposed to buy everyone who is in the bar a drink right? So he ended up buying drinks for like 6 or 7 people. He got to keep alot of money from those winnings. That hardly happens.

Ok I'm off to get ready for work so I can earn money. Also I can't forget to get my free coffee. (o: I hope all is well with you guys!

Subject:ELLIE IS HOME!
Time:09:21 pm
Current Mood:calmbetter
So everyone tried and failed to get Ellie to eat and drink something to help improve her health. She was feeling more go and do everything you can, or break everything....basically Destructo was back. After lunch my mom was like since you don't have anything to do til' 7 go visit Ellie. So I did....and probably around 5'ish we were watching this helicopter land and she randomly started eating some cereal and drinking which she hasn't done much of since Friday. And yay! Basically I was able to get her to continue to eat and drink and not stop doing it. Then that was the go ahead to get her home because that was what they were worried about after her fever went down and she started to be more active and back to her self. So now she just needs to eat and drink more than she did today tomorrow and she won't have to make another visit. (o: Here are some pics I took...

Here she is at the window looking at the helicopter.

She loved this cow and always stuck her hand in the nostril....lol! And her hand is wrapped in a towel so she can't pull on the IV needle. She basically used that hand to wipe things clean and as a weapon....

Today was the "last day" to sign up for Little League in the Grove. It's like a mini hell day of parents thinking they are the last one's to sign their kid up. HA! I say to them. We easily got over a 100 sign up forms today alone. But I know it's not the "last day" for sign ups. When is it ever? Little Guy Football was on top of an actual deadline. Soccer was the worst....seriously....even a month after deadline I was getting phone calls about sign ups. Sign ups are crazy times....

Ellie is still in the hospital. Still no clue what's going on with her. I guess her fever has gone down and her breathing is better. But she's not eating or drinking anything or enough really. Ashley kept me up to date with some pictures from her phone. Here they are...
