What an honor to be sorted into Hufflepuff! The house based on values and virtues over simply deeds. Not that the Hufflepuffs don't do anything worthwhile, it's just that here importance is based more on how you are, not what you do. Hufflepuff is all about acceptance. Since when is that a bad thing?
In Hufflepuff, there is a fallacy that the members are simply average, not good enough to get into the other houses. This is most definately not so. Just because Hufflepuff doesn't discriminate against people for not being good enough (or brave, smart, and ambitious enough), does not mean that the entire house is full of wimps, as people seem to think. While, yes. hard-workers are most likely to enter Hufflepuff, this does not mean there aren't other qualities. The fact that Helga Hufflepuff will take "all the rest" can and is seen as a bad thing, by some.
A Hufflepuff is loyal to their friends, trustworthy and patient, and often hard-working. One need not to fit all the criteria of a house to belong it it, nor not have any of the other House's values.
Last, I hope I need not remind you of Cedric Diggory, the one champion chosen for Hogwarts, over all the cunning Slytherins, brave Gryffindors, and clever Ravenclaws. You'd do good not to doubt Hufflepuff.

Your Score: 12", Holly, Dragon
You scored 42 wisdom, 38 bravery, 10 emotional, and 22 martyrdom!
Holly is a powerful protective wood that good for use against evil, but it also represents dreams and fertility. Your dragon's heartstring core makes your wand very effective in hexes.
actual entry in due course.

It's been a fair while since I've posted. In truth for the first time in awhile I've been quite busy. I just haven't had the energy to write in here.
Last weekend I went home. It was an extremely short trip and at first I wasn't happy there. Then I met up with my friends. I sometimes forget how much a smile, hug and a shared joke can brighten things up. I love those girls very much, and things seem to be going fairly well for them. They seem to know what they want and how to get it. A feeling I hope I am soon in possession of. It was good seeing my parents as well. My mom dyed the tips of my hair 'teal'. They came out a rather ugly green (but that shall be fixed in due course). My grandmother thinks she's insane.
This past friday was not only the Harry Potter book 7 release (!!!!!) but two of my friends from High School were in town. They've been on a national tour marching with some of the best Corps in the world. [http://www.dci.org] is where you can see what I'm talking about. ALonzo is marching with the Blue Coats which are currently in 2nd place, and Danny is marching with the Santa Clara Vanguard which I believe is in 4th. So, after church (a lunch, a nap, and after watching a little bit of Popular) I took off back to Denton to see their performances. The shows were awesome and I had forgotten how awesome Danny's hugs can make me feel.
Also, I got a cat. He's a orange kitten and he likes to eat, poop, sleep, and his hobby is finding new and intresting ways to wake me up in the middle of the night.
This past Saturday I went to Six Flags with the youth group from church. On the whole I had a really good time. But, the first ride we went on was "The Texas Giant". A huge wooden rollercoaster that as soon as I laid eyes on made my stomache go cold and my throat tighten. But, I had made a promise to myself to meet this fear (at least) face to face - perhaps even conquer it. So, I got in line and chatted while listening to people scream as the ride continued on it's merry. I was fine until we got right up to it. It came our turn and as I sat there waiting for the ride to take off tears began rolling and I wanted off. It was too late. As we started going up the big hill I began to sob. We went down and I closed my eyes, held on tight and screamed as I never had before in my life. So, mission accomplished. I got on the stupid thing. I didn't like it. Perhaps now people will stop thinking i'm some sort of freak for not liking them. "Well, have you ever TRIED it?" "YES! YES I HAVE NO LEAVE ME ALONE". Lol. This isn't the reason I went on. I have now met face to face all of my physical fears. Needles? check. Snakes? Check. Spiders? Check. Rollercoasters????? check. I don't care what anyone else says. I'm slightly proud of myself.
Also, I'm leaving in August. For about a week and a half I will be in Laredo for what I consider "Summer Vacation". For some reason - I think I might actually havefun. It's a sneaking feeling - but it's there. Wether or not it's true...we shall have to wait and see.
As for school? Amazingly enough, I'm actually quite liking it. History is kind of cool and laid back but we're getting a really in depth look into it. Sex roles is actually kind of intresting and the discussions we have in there - believe it or not are really throughly fascinating. Also, she sometimes gives us candy at the end of class - this doesn't hurt.
My parents went to Houston for about a week and a half. This was because my dad when he had that whole thing happen to him never actually met with a doctor who specializes in Cancer. So, he went to the hospital they have in Houston and did a full check-up. He came out clean. Now we just have to get him to watch his weight and maybe get him to exercise a little bit here and there. Easier said than done.
Other than these few feeble updates - life continues on much as it has. My life is pretty dull. I thought I was actually going to have something to say when I came on here. Now, re-reading this.....it seems pretty feeble. There's more I'd like to write, but I suppose that can wait.

I guess it's time for a new entry. Before Dilated starts complain' again - lol j/k
Nothing too exciting has happened. I ended up not attending my best friend's wedding. It's a shame and I wish I could have gone but the way that things worked out I just wasn't able to go. I have alot of pictures though and she looked really really pretty. My guess is either Priscilla or Kelly will be next in line to walk down the aisle. Of course we always figured Kelly would be the first to do so.
Instead I went with Elessar257 and a few of the youth to Dallas to attend YEC. We got there late. Due to many many obstacles and traffic. Not cool. So, the youth outbid me and instead we went to eat. Pretty expensive lunch if I do say so myself but I had the BEST food. Steak and mashed potatoes ^_^ not much can beat that. The youth ended up spending the night at my apartment and THANKFULLY I had cleaned up before I left so it wasn't a mess when they got here lol. It was pretty fun. Of course, I got smacked in the face with a beaded pillow - but whatever.
I've had better 4th of July's. It wasn't bad though. I tried to make it down to Fort Worth so that I could buy my Harry Potter ticket (which, about to attempt again in a few minuets) but the Omni was closed so instead I found a nice park to watch the fireworks from. I read for my final in Philosophy and waited patiently. At first I was disappointed with the fireworks but in the end they pulled through. I waited about a half hour for traffic to die down and clearly I needed to wait more and know where the heck I was going. I got a little lost and caught in traffic and of course by this time I was starving. So, I went to sonic and then ended up hanging out with Aldo at Wal-Mart for a little bit. I got a bandana out of the deal. I heart Bandanas, they make my hair behave.
I have finals this week. Today is my final in Linguistics, but it's online so I'll do that tonight when no one else is on the internet so my connection will be steady. On friday I have my final for Philosophy at 6 o'clock. Then I'm done with Summer Session I and will start getting ready for SSII. It won't be too bad World History pt I and Sex Roles. I hope it's intresting.
This upcoming week should be pretty awesome. Harry Potter comes out on the 11th, and the youth are going to Six Flags on the 13th. This will be my first attempt (EVER) at going on a rollercoaster. I'm gonna try and get over this fear - let's hope it works. If my parents knew they would blow a gasket. lol, they've tried everything to get me to go on rollercoasters. I've remained firm in my resolve to never get on one until now. We'll see how this goes.
I will also be going home in August to visit the fam and see everyone. Dad wants to take a 'mini vacation' to Corpus. I haven't been in ages upon ages so that doesn't sound like too bad of a deal. The last time I saw a coast of any sort was a little over 2 years ago. I love the beach. Though, I prefer it at night - is that weird? Eh, maybe not so much once you see the Corpus Crisiti coastline. I remember this one beach in California called Sealion beach or something like that - but there were a whole bunch of wild sea lions you could swim with. Of course, out of my family I was the first one in. I also tried to touch a baby seal but when one of the bigger seals started to growl at me I quickly gave up on that attempt. The water was incredibly clear and a fantastic shade of blue. All coast lines should be like that.
that's my life.
I'm sure there will be more intresting things sooner or later.
