This is a movie I found on NetFlix. It's PG. And I loved it!
My family was probably sitting there thinking "Ashtyn what are we watching? Do we have to watch this? Ugg." Which they often do when I get to choose the movie. What can I say I'm a sucker for feel good, always have a happy ending, learn a wonderful truth, kind of movies.
This movie struck me.... I don't know how to explain the feeling but I cried.... A LOT!
This movie made me proud to be an American.
So if you get a chance watch it, do. If it doesn't have the same affect on you as it did on me, maybe I'm just the odd one out, but I'm okay with that. I will be proud to stand out. As Max Goof would say-cross that out-sing, "I got what it t-aa-kes! To stand out! Above the crowed! Even if I gotta shout out loud, til' mine is the only face that you see, gonna stand out til' ya notice me!!!"
Sorry got off topic.... re-tracking....
Saw It. Loved It. Watch It. (Cry Your Eyes Out)

This is my Homecomming group.
Left to right
Me, Chase, Jeanann, Dakota, Ashley, Peanut(His name is really Peioneti but we just call him Peanut.)

This is one of my friends named Ali. We were standing in line for pictures.

This is my corsage. Isn't it lovely?

This is me and my date. We decided that his hair looks like Syndrome from 'The Incredibles' with blond hair. What do you think?

For our day date we went to Taylors ville Park and played Frisbee Golf on the Fresbee Golf Course(Yes I said course. People had kadies.) Jeanann through a frisbee under a fence and Dakota went to climb the fence and all the sudden there were tons of bees every where. I don't mean three or four bees. I mean like 50 bees. Dakota got stung three times on his neck and once on his butt, and he said in 4 other palces. Jeanann's final count was 12. Peanut got three on his head. And I got one on my ear. I have never been stung by a bee, until now. And you want to know something? IT HURTS!!!!!! I do not want to ever be stung by a bee ever again! Winnie the Pooh makes it look easy to run away from them but you know what it's not. they just keep following you around.
Then we went up Big Cottonwood canyon and we were going to go for a hike but we only went a little way and then there was this big mound of dirt that we climbed up and I slid down it. It was a lot steeper than I was anticipating but I thought it was fun. Chase on the other had did not enjoy it. Wimp.
We then went home and got ready. I told Jeanann that we wouldn't get to her house til about 6. Chase didn't get to my house until 6:30. He had a clothing mishap. He found out 5 minutes before he was suppsed to be at my house that his mom had given his black slacks to D.I. So they had to go get some slacks. We got to Jeanann's at about 6:45 and went to dinner.
We had planned on going to Chillies but when we got there there was an hour wait. So we went to Johnny Carinos instead. It was good.
We got to the dance at 8 it ended at 9. We stood in line for pictures for 45minutes.
After the dance we went to Dakota's house and did s'mores and watched The Princess Bride. Chase fell asleep durring the movie. After the movie we all went home.
Despite all the mishaps we had a ton of fun!!! We had a lot of laughs and we got some intresting stories out of it. So thanks to my group for all the fun and for the memories. Love you all!!!

A New School Year

This school year I am a senior.
When I tell people I'm a sennior they usally say "HOLY HELL! YOU'RE A SENIOR?!?!"(and no I am not making that up)
I have decided that they don't think I'm a senior because I am so incrediblly short. But I am not the shortest one at school so I think it will be okay.
The other day I was in the bathroom and a little sophmore girl came in with all her friends and they were fixing their hair and talking about all the cute boys they know and how "OMG! He sits next to me in spanish class!!!" I didn't even have to ask what grade they were in. I knew because of the way they acted.
My friend Kaitlyn has a new friend who's a sophmore(We'll call her Squash). The other day we were all talking about something(I don't remember what it was) and Squash wouldn't drop the subject. After a while Squash left and Kaitlyn said "Uuugggg she's so obnoxious! Why couldn't she just drop it? Why is it such a big deal? I don't get it!!!" I said in reply "She's a sophmore. They're all like that." Kaitlyn then said, "Was I like that." I told her yes.
Anyway I find it intresting the way you can tell the differance between a sophmore and a senior. Even if they look old enough to be a senior by the way they act you can tell that they are sophmores.
That again got me thinking of how people thinnk that I am a sophmore. Am I like Squash? Then a girl in my ASL(American Sign Language) class said that she guessed that I was a senior it was my voice that made me seem younger. So now not only is it because I'm short, it's cause my voice is to high. *sigh* I guess I'll never look old enough to be a senior.
I think it's okay for now though because I don't feel old enough to be a senior. Maybe by the end of the year people will think I'm a senior and maybe I'll look like one(I don't know how I'll look like a senior if I stay 5'3".
I'll worry about it some other time.

I was asked by Chase Ewell.
He asked me in Concert Choir.
He sang 'It Takes Two' from Hairspray to me and then he gave me flowers.
At the end of the song the
boys who were standing at the front of the room all held up big posters that said "Will you go to Homecomming with me?"
I wish someone had gotten it on video, but alas they didn't.
