So as the men's basketball tournament is coming to an end, I would just like to point out to everyone the oddity of basketball being a blue sport. 
Every team in the final four is blue. I really do find this strange. 
My father even pointed out that our Lady Vols have that light blue in their uniforms. 
The only team that I could think of that is actually known pretty well for basketball and does not wear the color blue on game days is Indiana. I am pretty sure that this team is not even that great anymore. 
I am sure to many of you this is pointless information, but random thoughts such as these do go on in my head all the time. If anyone out there is willing to bet on these games, heck, I am going to out on a limb and say a blue team will be the national champion. 
I, myself, was really hoping that the men, our men, would have done a bit better than they did. I am sure a ton of people did, but do be honest no one comes to the University of Tennessee-Knoxville for men's basketball. This season was a pretty sweet treat. I have no complaints. 
I will, however, be disappointed if the Lady Vols lose. They are known to be great.

"Yvaine became the Lady of Stormhold...."Looking back on it, I suppose this really was my legacy. I am the perfect monarch. I know many things about human behavior, having studied it all those years. I know to say and when to say it. I will never age. I must look perfect on the posters in the towns below. I do wonder if my mother, the moon, knew of my interesting and entertaining life before it happened. I wonder if any mother of a star could know that her daughter would not end up in the star form, but to spend her life ruling over the lands that one can not find on a map. If so, I do wonder why she did not tell me of it. Maybe she did not tell me because she feared I would not want that to be my destiny. She knew that, even though, I would get to fall in love, the only thing magnificent about the human world, I would not always get to experience that love. I do miss her so much. I miss Tristran more. I cannot believe that I will never see his face again. I will never get to hold his hand. I did love holding his hand. I cannot even watch love emerge. That must be why she did not tell me. She knew that spending years of happiness would not make up for the ever more years of loneliness. I do wish she would have told me, almost as much as I wish I could experience my life again. Well, not my whole life. The ending is not something that anyone would want to live through again. If anyone could call this really living.

Well spring break is officially over. I am doing the weeks worth of homework that I put off. I knew that I would get overwhelmed. I do not know why I do this to myself. Easter was pretty good. I love when the family gets together, and I love when I get to eat my grandma's cooking. It always makes for an interesting day. I did not like the horrible weather. I hate it when it is cold. I hated the horrible officiating that happened in today’s game as well. I cannot believe that people can be so one-sided. I supposed if I would have happened to be on the other side it would not be as important to me, but, in this case, I was not and it is important. The break was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. The weather proved to be pretty nice. My hometown was not that boring, but next year, I do believe, I have to get out of Knoxville for the week. I really hope next year spring break is not so close to Easter as well. That kind of threw me off. I could only imagine how weird it would be if I actually lived far away. People should really take these things into consideration.

After getting over the whole pain of getting my wisdom teeth taken out, I realized that not only do you have to go through that, you also get holes. I only had one bottom one so I only got one hole. It is completely disgusting and is definitely the worst part by far of getting your wisdom teeth out. I hate the whole process now. My week did get a bit better. It was interesting to say the least. I did not do any homework. I made it a point not to think about school, well, except for the last extra credit opportunity in English, but this is not that stressful I do not believe. The only thing that I can say is a great thing about going back to school is seeing everyone. It is so weird to me that you actually miss everyone. I love the weather. Thank God that it is hot. I cannot stand walking in the cold. I am so over having to wear pants. They make my legs look so awkward. I am just not excited to see how less of a tan I have than everyone else. I hope everyone has a great Easter!

So far my spring break has been horrible. I had to get my wisdom teeth removed. The surgery went fine. As a whole, the process is not that bad, but I am so hungry. I eat all the time, and so, to go from eating anything I want once every few hours to eating nothing but Jell-O or pudding every now and then really stinks. My stomach hates me. I am so sick of my house it is insane. I cannot wait until I get to leave here. It is going to be soon. My friend is about to come and take me out to eat. At this moment I am beyond being jealous of all those people that are at the beach this week. I am even jealous of all those people that stayed home. They can eat anything that they want, which would be amazing at this point. Everything I have thought about all day is food. Hopefully I get something appetizing tonight.
My face looks alright. Sometimes one side balloons up and makes the face as a whole look a bit awkward, but after putting frozen peas next to it for awhile it seems to go down. I am thinking that my spring break can only get better at this point.

This weekend will probably be less exciting than the others. I have two exams. This two exams will be equally hard. While the tests are going to be stressful, taking actual time to study for them is going to be that much harder. I have yet to get the hang of effectively studying for a test. I have not really tired too amazingly hard, but with the hole that have put myself in I have no choice but to study like crazy. I also have to attend my math class because today my teacher brought to my attention that I have already missed five days. I just find it pointless to go to a class that does not help me at all. I have to teach myself the material usually anyways. In case anyone was wondering, my teacher is foreign. I cannot wait till next week is over. I feel as if the load may be lighten. Thursday, at about six o'clock I am going to feel amazing. This amazing feeling will undoubtly leave as soon as Friday morning comes around. I have to get my wisdom teeth taken out. I am a bit nervous, but I am happy that the random headaches are going to be over. That's about all that I can think to write this time.

This weekend was way too short. I was hoping to catch up on some much needed sleep, but this did not happen. I spent most of the weekend with my best friend. Saturday was exciting because I actually was able to go shopping. I do not think I can remember the last time I went shopping and did not purchase some sort of food item. I forgot how much I enjoyed this pass time. Sunday was amazing! It was so hot outside that I could actually wear shorts and not look like a complete fool. I enjoyed getting ready for my spring outfit. I just love the clothes that are acceptable in the summer so much more than the ones that are acceptable in the winter. Since tomorrow is Monday I have to do homework. I am just now starting. I really did want to enjoy the much missed warm weather. I just think everyone looks so much better with a tan!To my dismay, the cold weather should come back on Tuesday. I just hate it so much. I keep praying that the weather men are just wrong, and I will not have to keep out my jackets and sweaters for much longer.

Apparently I was unaware that we were supposed to have a blog before the interview so, therefore, I did not write one. Stupid I know. Everyone makes mistakes. At least that is what I am told.
So everyone should know that when choosing general education classes one should not chose astronomy. It is not easy. You do not get to learn why Pluto is not longer a classical plant, or if there is really life out there. The class is completely boring. Right now I could tell you that a star is mostly made of hydrogen. This is important I am sure. Along with this boring lecture that I should probably attend more than I do, there is a lab. Every lab must be completed. School rules are stupid. The lab consists of pointless physics, and more math than I have to contemplate than many classes going on in Ayres.
This is my way of venting about my really really "cool" idea. I am going to take astronomy.
And in case no one knew, the University of Tennessee does have a men’s basketball team. I cannot wait to watch my team play Memphis this weekend. Even if they do not win, when in history has this team ever been ranked number two? I believe the answer is never. I think that everyone should be excited, because if you don't like basketball you probably like history, and this is both.
I maybe made a stupid assumption here that may or may not have made sense, but it is my blog.

This weekend was an amazing one. I will have to say that I was completely satisfied in every way imaginable.
On Friday I got to see my little cousins. Since all my friends went to the Brad Paisley concert and I cannot stay country music, I thought that I would just hangout with them. I am not going to lie I still love to play Barbies, and they give me a great excuse to.
Saturday was the typical Saturday I suppose. I pushed back homework, and went to bed way too late.
Sunday. O, Sunday. The beginning of the day was spent sleeping. The end of the night was spent screaming. I love football. I love Eli Manning. So at about ten last night my dreams came true. Who would have thought at the beginning of this season that the New York Giants would be the Super bowl Champions? The whole game was amazing. I completely loved watching Tom Brady getting hit left and right. The greatest moment came when Eli had his arms up cheering and Mr. Brady was walking off the field in disbelief. The game as a whole was pretty good. I am going to be honest I might be just as happy if my team would have lost. They played pretty well, and they only allowed the best offensive in the NFL to score twotouchdowns. My time now will be spent watching Sportscenter so I can see the millions of Eli Manning interviews. I cannot wait for the Peyton and Eli commercials that everyone knows will be in the works soon.
So, this weekend was pretty dang amazing

This weekend was another satisfying one. Although there were not any amazing football games for me to watch, I did end up with quite the entertainment. For everyone that went to the Georgia game Saturday night they know what I am talking about. Friday night was a lazy one, but I will admit I did enjoy it quite a bit. I got to sleep in my own bed. This was the most amazing night's sleep I have received in forever it feels like. Oh, and for all those girls in this class that like chick-flicks Sydney White is adorable. 
To Saturday night, the basketball game. The game itself was not the entertaining at all. We won. During halftime I as amazed as I watched young girls jump rope in sync with one another. They had all the great techniques as a cheerleading squad or a dance team. They had cute moves, along with great flips. They did all this while jumping rope. I swear it was the coolest thing I have ever saw. It was definatly worth the boring half that I had to sit through. Next weekend should be an interesting one. Hopefully I will be satisfied once again. Hope everyone is in good health. Good luck staying warm.
