I'm about to lose it.
  1. My 15 page paper is due on the 24th, we don't have a printer
  2. My cellphone bill was $98 (I'm having to rake leaves for my parents to pay it back)
  3. So I have negative amounts of money (and don't know how I'm going to get the $5 to see Twilight this weekend)
  4. I have a 12-15 minute formal presentation about this 15 page paper on Dec. 10
  5. I have final exams Dec. 8-11
  6. I'm getting no hours at work
  7. I have a fund-raiser for our junior prom
  8. I'm taking the ACT for the first time on Dec. 13
Seriously, 12-15 minute presentation? I'm a fast talker. And who makes teenagers sell fruit for their fund-raiser? At least the sophomores sold candy bars which were cheap and yummy, but since this fruit is expensive, we have to beg adults. My friends would really have to love me if they're willing to shell out $24. Fruit. Fruit. Fruit. Migoodness. I'm running out of time on my paper. I'm stressed that I'll do really bad on the ACT. I'm afraid I won't pass my college class (the paper and presentation are half my grade). I'm trying to grow out my hair for prom.

But if I get through all of this...

my reward is going to UTAH for Christmas!!! And I get to miss a couple of days of school for it!!!
That's one reason why I'm so stressed out about money...

So I'm isolated at home for the week, except for tomorrow. I'm working for the first time in almost 2 weeks. And we have a talent show for mutual. But I seriously need to buckle down on this paper.
*peaceful utah thoughts*

Don't lose it. It will all work out. I remember having a huge paper due and we only had a typewriter at the time, so it took a long time to get it just right. No cutting and pasting, etc. The day it was due I had just confessed to myself that it would not be done, when I woke up to a huge snowstorm and a declared SNOW DAY!!!! It was great. I had just enough time to retype my last draft and still enjoy playing in the snow by jumping off the roof. And you can take the act again if you need. i did. I am sure everything will work out.

I am excited for your trip! When will you be here? Your grandparents will be back by then, too, right? How exciting!!
