30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 11

Dear a Deceased Person I Wish I Could Talk to,

I'm lucky in the sense that I don't know a lot of people who have died, however, there is one person who I never got to meet because he died when I was really little and that's my Grandfather (my Mom's dad). My mom doesn't really talk about him too often, and it's not because of some fall-out or anything; it's simply because I've never asked. I don't know why I've never asked about him; that might have to change. I'd like to talk to him about what my mom was like and what growing up with my mom and Grandma was like.

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 10

Dear Someone I Don’t Talk to as Much as I’d Like to,

We haven't drifted apart for too long, but it has been a couple months since we had our usually car conversations or have even hung out with each other. I think we need to change that and hang out. I'm thinking a movie or something? I miss our long conversations with each other; you always had something to tell me, and I didn't mind listening!

Thanks for being a good friend. We need to get together soon!

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 9

Dear Someone I Wish I Could Meet,

That someone is Derek Jeter.

I think you're an amazing baseball player, and you're a great role model to young children. I know a lot of people who hate the Yankees, and I mean a lot, but out of all those people, I can't name one person who does not respect you as a player and person; that says a lot about who you are. You're talented on the field, and no one can overlook that. I think it's amazing that you have your own charity. You work hard to give back, and that's another reason why I would want to meet you. You're captain of the New York Yankees, which shows everyone you're a leader to your teammates. I became a Yankees fan when I was flipping through channels over 10 years ago; I'm glad I stopped on that channel when I saw you. Maybe one day I'll get to meet you, and if there were to ever happen, it would be something I would never forget.

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 8

Dear Favorite Internet Friend,

You know who you are. We've been talking online for almost 3 years now, and even though we've never met, I feel like we have! We have so much in common: we both majored in Early Childhood Education, we are both very family-oriented, and we both like: the Yankees, baseball, to read, country music, and sci-fi (Supernatural!). I feel like I can tell you anything, and I pretty much do. I love our conversations online because we don't judge each other, and we offer each other advice when needed. I hope one day we can meet because I know we'll get along great with each other.

Thank you for being a great internet friend!

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 7

Dear Ex-boyfriend,

My last boyfriend was a long time ago, which is depressing when you think about it. It was during high school so it wasn't even that serious.

Oh well, this letter is to you.

At the time, I was a little awkward, but you liked me anyway. You gave me two stuffed animals, which of both I still have (and I'll always know you gave them to me). You were sweet and funny. I always liked watching movies with you, even if you would lie about seeing it just so we would watch it. At one point, we ended up getting in a big fight, which was probably my fault. I hate that we fought, but I'm glad we got past it. We only dated a few months, and we remained friends afterward until I moved. I wish we had stayed in touch a little better, although we are friends on Facebook, which is at least something I guess. Maybe one day we'll meet again? I'm not opposed to it.

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 6

Dear Stranger,

You don't know me, and I don't know you so here's a little bit about me:

I like photography. I only do it as a hobby, but I hope to pursue it as a side career later on in life.

I like the Yankees. I've been a Yankees fan since I was 11 and a half years old. Derek Jeter caught my eye while I was flipping through the channels, and I've been a fan ever since.

I like to read. I've been really busy lately, but normally I always read before I go to bed. My favorite author is James Patterson, who I was able to meet at a book signing last year.

I'm a TV addict. I watch too many shows to count. A few of them include: CSI: NY, Flashpoint, NCIS, Supernatural, Dancing with the Stars, and Criminal Minds.

And that is a preview of me.

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 5

Dear Dreams,

I have a lot of you. In a perfect world, I would have a teaching job by now, although I can't complain too much since I was lucky enough to get a full-time job. I'd have found a perfect guy, one who is funny, sweet, and likes sport. He'd be a 6'2 teddy bear who likes the Red Sox so we can argue when the Yankees and Sox play each other. I'd have met Zac Efron by now. I'd be planning to move to New York in the future, go on an Alaskan Cruise, travel the world taking numerous pictures, and on the side, have a photography career.

Like I said, these are all dreams. It's nice to have them, but dreams don't always come true, and I'm okay with that.

Sometimes you just need to escape reality; it's fun to dream.

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 4

Dear Sibling(s),

I have two sisters who I love to death. I know I annoy you both sometimes, but you're still always there for me. We joke with each other, help each other, and we all care for each other. It's been tough moving, especially when we were younger, but I know it was easier having you both there when needed. I look up to you both, literally and figuratively, because you guys are great in your own ways.

Sister #1: You work hard at your job, and I admire you for that. I can always rely on you, and it's a great feeling knowing I can do that. You're also very smart, which shows in your work.

Sister #2: I love our crazy jokes we have with each other. We have plenty of inside jokes no one else gets but us; I love that we can act silly around each other. Also, you have smarts to back you up; don't let anyone tell you differently.

Thank you both for putting up with me!

Kelsey =)

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 3

Dear Mom and Dad,

I can't even put into words how much you both mean to me. You have done so much already, and you continue to do so everyday. You are always there for me no matter how obnoxious or annoying I can get, which apparently I get all the time (according to you two!). Thanks for listening to all of my stories even when you don't want to or try to run away (Dad!).

Mom - Thanks for being so creative and helping me when I run out of ideas. You always seem to know how to fix things when I have no idea what to do. You're a very smart woman, and I look up to you for that.

Dad - Thanks for always being a phone call away. You are always there to help me when needed, and I really appreciate that.

Thank you both...for everything.

Kelsey =)

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 2

Dear Crush,

I actually don't have a crush right now. I used to like this one guy, so I will direct this letter towards you. It was a little tough liking you since you had a girlfriend who I was also friends with. I loved spending time with you though because you made me laugh, and I made you laugh. My favorite part was making fun of you because you would make fun of me right back. I'd like to think that theory of 'if a boy makes fun of you or picks on you, he likes you' is true. I know I liked you. It was even rumored that I liked you at one point but because I didn't want my secret to get out, I denied it and said you were more like my brother than a crush. That seemed to stop the rumor, but I knew that deep down I really did like you at the time. I even lied to one of my good friends when she asked me if I liked you. Apparently we "flirted" all the time, which was how the rumor started. My crush on you has faded since then, but I'll always remember the fun times we had together. Good luck with your girlfriend (I'm pretty sure you're still together?).

30 Day Letter Challenge - Day 1

Dear Best Friend,

I call you my best friend for a reason. Some might say we're complete opposites, but that's what makes you and I a great team. We've shared classes together, an apartment, and plenty of good times. We rarely get mad at each other, which makes it even easier to be your friend. And even though I may break out with random dance moves while watching TV (possibly the King of Queens? hehe), we have remained friends. We're a goofy pair, and I love how we can be silly together. Also, when it's me and you, there's a 'no judge zone'. I am able tell you everything; I practically already have. When I do, you never judge me for anything, and I never judge you. Those are the rules.

So now that college has ended, we still better hang out and get together. I refuse to be those college friends who "say" they'll stay in touch and never do. I refuse. We will get together, and we will remain friends.

Thanks for being a great friend.

Kelsey =)

Interestings things to wonder about.

  • Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
  • Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
  • Why do fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?
  • How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work in the mornings?
  • Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
  • No one is listening until you make a mistake.
  • For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

Don't tell anyone.

I watched Greys Anatomy last night. Like I said, don't tell anyone. I've boycotted this show since it was put into the same time slot as Supernatural way back in the day. I watched last night because honestly, the previews looked amazing, and I can't help watch any episode of any show that deals with gunmen and people getting shot; those episodes always seem to be the most intense and interesting. Well, I wasn't let down last night either. I thought the episode was very intense, and it was a great finale. The only thing I would have changed was providing the audience with a cliffhanger. A season finale needs to leave you wanting more and wanting to watch that season premiere in the fall, and even though I was just a one-time watcher for the night, I wasn't left with that finale feeling. All of the "problems" in the episode were solved. Someone who was shot and was questionable to live, well, we knew whether they lived or died by the end. A good finale would have kept us wondering if they would survive or not. And the whole "I have one bullet left, who should I kill: you or me?" debate was answered as well. Again, that was a perfect opportunity to leave the viewers hanging since all we hear at one point is a gun shot, and we don't know who the gunman shot: himself or the doctor. However, next scene, we see the doctor talking to the police: hello! suspense and cliffhanger ruined!

Oh well, it was a well-done episode, and I'm glad I watched. I may or not not tune into the season premiere in the fall; I'll have to see what the preview looks like!

Graduation - poem

The end has finally come,
With a new beginning to try.
I’m venturing out into the world,
But this is not goodbye.

I made those special friends,
Ones who I’ll never forget.
Those four years flew on by,
But our friendship is not over yet.

The conversations we all had,
Always makes me smile.
Thinking of our times together,
Makes it all worthwhile.

We’re starting something new,
But I know we’ll all do well.
Look forward to the future,
And don’t look back and dwell.

Good luck to all those moving on,
Try your best to give it your all.
Rise up to each challenge you face,
No matter how big or how small.

Put a smile on your face,
And wear your cap with pride.
Have your head held high as you walk,
It's been a long and crazy ride.

And in the end, you can only thank,
Those special and close to you,
Your parents, your family, and your friends,
Just to name a few.

Now get ready for a new adventure,
Don't sit back and wait,
You made it, you did it, you succeeded in life,
It’s time to celebrate.

The end? Or the beginning?

And so the end is near, but the beginning is close by. Graduation is days away, and four years of college are finally coming to an end. Am I happy? Of course. Am I sad? Of course. Am I scared? Of course. I'm entering the real world as a baby. School has ended, and I going out to start the rest of my life. I'm praying and crossing my fingers a job comes my way after the summer ends. I'm nervous because the job search can be competitive, and I'm not sure I can push through; I'm going to try my best though. Teaching is going to be tough, but I'm ready for the challenge.

At the end of four years, what can I say? The hard work and labor that was put forth was exhausting but well worth it. I know I made my parents proud, and by walking across on the stage on Thursday, I'll make myself proud as well. There were so many times I didn't think I could do it or if I would be a good teacher, but in the end, I'm glad I stuck it out since I know I'll be successful. I love working with children, and I'm ready for that full-time experience. Bring on the real world I say!

Congratulations Class of 2010 - we finally did it! :)

Definition of "Kelsey"

Here is the definition of my name "Kelsey" from urbandictionary.com:

A very smart, sweet girl with lots of things on her mind. She may seem distracted a lot and that's because she is most of the time. Very creative and sometimes shy, She always has to have music on. Silence is her only weakness. She doesn't think she's attractive but in reality she's the most gorgeous thing you'll ever meet. Often spaces out when near windows. Always contemplating something. Sugar junkie. Very pale and doesn't care. Easy to get along with. Everyone loves her. Stands up for her friends and would never hurt anyone intentionally. Cares too much. Picks the wrong crowd. Not easily influenced. Has soo much planned for her. Remember her, she'll be widely known soon. If you fall in love with a Kelsey don't ever let her go. She likes playfighting.

Possible wedding song?

well, since I don't even have a boyfriend, this would be in the future, obviously :D

Keith Urban's "Only You Can Love Me This Way"

Well, I know there's a reason
And I know there's a rhyme
We were meant to be together
And that's why

We can roll with the punches
We can stroll hand in hand
And when I say it's forever
You understand

That you're always in my heart
You're always on my mind
But when it all becomes too much
You're never far behind

And there's no one
That comes close to you
Could ever take your place
'Cause only you can love me this way

I could have turned a different corner
I could have gone another place
Then I'd of never had this feeling
That I feel today, yeah

And you're always in my heart
Always on my mind
When it all becomes too much
You're never far behind

And there's no one
That comes close to you
Could ever take your place
'Cause only you can love me this way

And you're always in my heart
You're always on my mind
And when it all becomes too much
You're never far behind

And there's no one
That comes close to you
Could ever take your place
'Cause only you can love me this way

Only you can love me this way

It's Hard to Say Goodbye - new poem

It's hard to say goodbye,
To someone I've known for a long time,
Someone I've joked with,
A person who was always there for me.

It's hard to say goodbye,
To someone who stood by my side,
Someone who never let me down,
A person I could look up to.

It's hard to say goodbye,
To someone who was taken too soon,
Someone the whole world would have loved,
A person who was kind to all.

It's hard to say goodbye,
To someone was who like family,
Someone who will always be in our hearts,
A friend that will always be remembered.

Hello 2010.

Welcome to 2010. Wow, it's been a long ride. Here I am, ready to make some pretty fantastic resolutions. Hopefully I can stick to them?

1. Lose some weight - I'm pretty sure every girl has this resolution.
2. Get a "real" job - I'll be graduating in May and well, the thought of going into the real world scares the crap out of me. I want to work for the YMCA during the summer, but I hope I can get a "real" job for the fall.
3. Try things out of my comfort zone - I'm pretty content with my own ways so this resolution may be harder to achieve.
4. Get a boyfriend - Okay, it's more of a "hope" than a resolution ;)
5. Spend less money - Sure, that would be nice.
6. Get my ears pierced - Shocked that I don't have them pierced already? I think it's about time I got my ears pierced - 22 years without them, and it may be time for a change.
7. Learn how to use chopsticks - I know a fork is easier, but I could use a challenge.
8. Learn how to play chess - It's all about strategy right?

Happy Birthday to ME.

Today is my birthday! I'm 22! :)

Here's my birthday horoscope from yahoo:

"Get your buddies to lend a hand when push comes to shove. They have muscle aplenty."

Your mind is made up, even if you don't realize it yet. It's a great day for decisionmaking, and you may be able to get your friends to see that your way is the right way. Keep moving with confidence!
