Well, I've seen a few people making lists of their top songs and albums of the year and/or decade, and thought I'd make one of my own. I started out trying to make a list of my top favorite songs of the year, but quickly realized that I didn't have enough songs that I really liked that came out this year to make a decent list. This is in part due to the fact that I've really gotten into older music during this year and partly due to the fact that during the fall of this year, I've been listening to a lot less music than I used to. I used to listen to my ipod almost every morning on the bus on the way to school, but when I started college this fall, I started doing work on the way there and back. Somehow, I couldn't bring myself to do homework at 6:45 in the morning (on the way to high school) but I felt that by 11:00 (on the way to college) I should be doing something productive. I must make it my New Years resolution to change this!
So anyway, I decided to do a list of my top favorite songs of the decade instead. I tried my best to put them in order from most to least favorite.
My album list is short, because good or bad, I am one of those people who buys a lot of my music a song at a time thanks to Itunes.

1. Soak up the Sun" Sheryl Crow
2. I Run for Life" Melissa Etheridge
3. I'm yours" Jason Mraz
4. Ain't no Reason" Brett Dennen
5. I need to Wake Up" Melissa Etheridge
6. One Big Love" Emmylou Harris
7. You and me" Lifehouse
8. First time" Lifehouse
9. Collide" Howie Day
10. It's a Dream" Neil Young
11. Bubbly" Colbie Caillat
12. Beautiful Day" U2
13. Sk8er Boi" Avril Lavigne
14. He Wasn't" Avril Lavigne
15. Chasing Cars" Snow Patrol
16. breathe (2 AM)" Anna Nalick
17. Pictures of you" The Last Goodnight
18. Fidelity" Regina Spektor
19. Waiting on the world to change" John Mayer
20. White Flag" Dido
21. boulevard of Broken Dreams" Greenday

I actually liked this little quiz better than some because you actually had to answer questions in order to complete it, rather than some quizzes where they just give you your answer right away.


Your result for The Harry Potter Wand Test...

11", Holly, Unicorn

You scored 32 wisdom, 33 bravery, 21 emotional, and 28 martyrdom!

is a powerful protective wood that good for use against evil, but it also represents dreams and fertility. Your unicorn's tail hair core means that you
are pure of heart and care deeply for your loved ones.

Hi Guys,
I don’t know why I’m even writing now, because I don’t really have time. I guess I just wanted to see if I could write a quick spir of the moment entry, since my entries are usually long and written about a specific thing. I really should be getting something for breakfast and then starting on my studying for exams, but I’ll try and finish this first. We have today off for senior graduation, and exams start on Friday, so today is my big study day! What fun! Lol jk jk. Then of course I’ll be studying all weekend for my exams that are next week. The ironic thing is that I could probably get away with hardly any studying at all. I could actually get as low as a c on any of my exams and still get a’s for my semester grades, because I have a’s for both of my quarter grades. But of course, that’s not me, and I’ll be studying like crazy anyway. Junior year has been a crazy year with it’s ups and downs, but more on that later. I plan to write an entry reflecting back over the year once my exams are done. We’ll see if that really happens! I can’t believe I have two more days of classes, 5 exams, and I’ll be done! My last exam is a week from Thursday. Well, that’s all for now.

Yes, I'm still alive, and I haven't completely forgotten about lj!
I have know idea where to start, since I haven't written for ages, and my cousin is coming over any minute, so I really don't have much time, but I just thought I'd check in and say hi!
So, what's new?
I don't know,. School has been crazy busy this year. I never really believed people when they said that junior year was the hardest year, but now I do! Omg! Never-ending homework! It's had it's positives too though; I'm still in peace club (now called peace and social action club) and I still enjoy that for the most part. Gabe, the president wants to do everything good for the world he possibly can, so we have expanded beyond just promoting peace. Now we also promote environmental awareness, fair trade, and whatever else Gabe can think of! Lol! I'm starting the whole collige (dingdong)
My cousin's here! gtg!

I am trying out tags for the first time, and this entry is a test to see if they work! However, any tips or anything else anyone wants to tell me about tags would be appreciated, especially tips from screen reader users, but anyone is welcome to share.
Well, since this entry is tagged with Harry Potter, I guess I should say something on that topic. So, I’ll say this, I Can’t Wait for the next book!!! Mom and I have preordered the book and the audio cd.

Can you believe I’ve been using lj for as long as I have, and I’m just getting around to trying out tags?
Well, that’s all for now.
Expect a vary long and probably boaring entry about my trip to Florida to appear some time in the near future. Don’t worry, I’ll put it behind a cut.

Hi Everyone,
I know this is kind of a basic lj question, but I still don’t know what the answer is.
So, if I join a community and choose to have the communities entries show up on my friends page, then will other community members be able to see friends only posts that I make in my personal journal?
I hope that makes sense.
Anyway, if someone could please help me with the answer, that would be great!!

Your Nail Polish Color is Purple

How you're unique: You are artistic and expressive
Why your style rocks: You pay special attention to color and fabrics
What this color says about you: "I'm creative and know how to take care of myself"

How did it pick my favorite color!!

This poem was emailed to me a while ago by my vision teacher, and I just got the idea to post it here. I thought maybe some of you would get a kick out of it.
It's a Dr. Seus stile poem about computer troubles! I know most of us have experienced those at some time!

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port, and the bus is
interrupted at a very last resort, and the access of the memory makes
your floppy disk abort, then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.
If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash, and the
double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash, and your data is
corrupted cause the index doesn't hash, then your situation's
hopeless and your system's gonna crash!
If the label on the cable on the table at your house, says the
network is connected to the button on your mouse, but your packets
want to tunnel to another protocol, that's repeatedly rejected by the
printer down the hall......
And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss, so
your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse; then you may as well
reboot and go out with a bang, 'cuz sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang.
When the copy on your floppy's getting sloppy in the disk, and the
macro code instructions cause unwanted risk, then you'll have to flash
the BIOS and you'll want to RAM your ROM, just quickly turn the darn
thing off and run to tell your Mom!
