New cell phone and such...

HOLA!!!! a new phone today! It rox!! It has "voice memo" on it....AKA... record ringtones off of ur computer. HAHAHA!! It rocks!! So I have my very small capacity of 7 ringtones on my phone including....

Seasons of Love
Light my candle
The Nanny theme song
Dirty Little Secret
Dancing Queen (for those of you who were unfortunate enough not to grow up in a disco-loving home, that's ABBA by the way)
Don't let me get me

My room is pretty much packed now. What isn't packed, is going to camp with me, or I need, or is furniture. I have a whopping 25 containers full in my room. Plus 1 already in Minerva. So that's that. I am doing absolutely nothing at the moment. I'm not tired but I have nothing to do.

Titanic Obsession pays off for 15-year-old girl

That's my headline for today. I have a huge obsession with Yahoo! Answers. I go onto the site and I find questions and just type in answers to whatever questions I think I have an answer for. Well, yesterday I answered a simple question. The e-mail I got from Yahoo! said:

Title: Yahoo! Answers: Your answer has been chosen as the best answer

Hey Rebecca R,
Congratulations, you've got a best answer and 10 extra points!
Your answer to the following question really hit the spot and has been chosen as the best answer:
Whats your favorite quote from the movie titanic??
Go ahead, do your victory dance. Celebrate a little. Brag a little. Then come back and answer a few more questions!
Thanks for sharing what you know and making someone's day.
The Yahoo! Answers Team

So I put two quotes, seeing as I love the movie, and these two are just a few of my favorites. My answer and the asker's comments were:

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker

I have two. Either:
Kate Winslet (Rose): I believe you are blushing, Mr. Big Artiste. I can't imagine Monsieur Monet blushing.
Leonardo DiCaprio (Jack): He does landscapes.

or the infamous..

Kate Winslet (Rose): I love you Jack.
Leonardo DiCaprio (Jack): Don't you do that, don't say your good-byes.
Kate Winslet (Rose): I'm so cold.
Leonardo DiCaprio (Jack): I don't know about you, but I intend on writing a strongly worded letter to the White Star Line about all of this. You're gonna go on, and make lots of babies, and watch them grow. You're gonna die an old lady, warm in her bed. Not here, not this night. Do you understand me? Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful. You must do me this honor, Rose. Promise me you'll survive. That you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.
Kate Winslet (Rose): I promise.
Leonardo DiCaprio (Jack): Never let go.
Kate Winslet (Rose): I'll never let go. I'll never let go, Jack.

Asker's Rating: ***** (5 stars)
I absolutely LOVE this one...Thanks!!!

I love Titanic even more, if that's possible. I may stay up and watch that tonight.

Random Thoughts (hey, my dad doesn't have a copyright on that!)

I hate thinking. Makes my brain hurt. *ouch* So my head has been hurting a lot for the past day or so. So, here's the deal. Me and a certain person used to be best friends. Then we made the biggest mistake friends can make. We dated. Twice. Yeah, that's the kiss of death. So after all this a bunch of crap happened and we, well specifically I, have made it a point not to speak, make eye contact, etc. Soooo, this person IM'd me yesterday and asked if we could be friends. I'm thinking about it. I really don't know what to think where this person is concerned. I never know if he's sincere or not. I mean, yeah, I forgive him for all the stuff, but just because you forgive someone does not mean that you have to be friends with them again. So I don't know. This came at a very bad time too. I have a billion other things to worry about without this little thing. So just pray for me. This is a way tougher thing than it seems.

Insomnia can be great

My mom and I stayed up last night and watched Scrubs on DVD until about 2:30 AM. After this I could not go to sleep. I don't know why. Maybe all the caffeine in the chocolate shake I had when we went to McD's with the Harry's last night. Or sugar. But I digress. I was bored so I had some boxes in my room and I began to pack up my bookshelves, so that's one less thing when we go to move. It's a frightening sight. I am a bookaholic. I have so many books that when they were on the shelves they were stacked double and I still had to store some. I don't even have 1 1/2 shelves full right now. It's frightening. My room looks so empty without them. I would take a before and after pic but I really don't feel like undoing the work of insomnia at the moment.

Road Trip

Today was me and my dad's first road trip of the summer. He's a case manager so he travels all over the state to take care of claims for people with special needs and manages Workers Comp. claims too. He has his own business- RMG Partners (Rebecca Michael Gabrielle), which I designed the logo for. It's awesome. Anyway, during the summer, when I'm not at camp or away or whatever, I go with him. Today was OSU Orthopedic Center. It was really cool. OSU Ortho takes care of OSU athletes so there were jerseys hanging everywhere. It was cool. When we were driving up we stopped at McD's and got breakfast. I had cappucinno and Dad got normal coffee. Well, he went over a curve real fast and the coffee spilled on my skirt. It was HOT coffee, too! Ouch! And I have 2 big splotches on my skirt now. I hope they wash out. So anyway, after the appointment, we drove around OSU, and he showed me where he stayed when he went there, and we went around the horseshoe and all that. We toured the Greek life (East 15th is also known as Frat row). Then we drove around the city. I am fascinated with any city life so that was fun. So anywhoooo... as we were driving back we got stuck in a traffic jam. Oh, fun. Well, after a while Dad goes "Do you see anything, yet?" Well, I could see a crane. Not good. That was an understatement. There had been an accident involving a travel trailer and a semi. We saw bits of tail light and headlight on the ground and at first thought it was a small car and thought "Oh boy, there's a fatality there." We saw the semi's grill and front were all smashed and a wreck (no pun intended). So we drove along some more to survey the damage, and we saw the trailer that had gotten hit.The backend of it was completely smashed in. It was so mangled that it looked like it was made of cardboard. I don't think anyone was hurt. There were two older people next to it on cell phones and looking at the back, so I think it was theirs. Tonight is VBS. I'll try to take some pics. TTYL!
P.S. I got a photobucket account-

Alien Song

Daily Rant

Ok, so this morning me and my mom have been looking at schools in Stark county. I DONT WANNA GO!! The schools' grading system is a lot tougher, and you have to go for longer. It stinks beyond all reason. I can't take chemistry this year which I worked my butt off to get into. And gym is a lot worse too. Oh, yeah, and did I mention that Section 2 is also where my loathed, annoying, does-not-get the-picture-and-just-will-not-leave-me-alone-and-go-away ex lives. That should make youth rallies pleasent.I hate all this. I'm leaving all my friends behind for something that is just retarded (the school thing. not the church. I am not in anyway saying that church is retarded). Makes me mad. I had to call my cousin last night and tell her and my other best friend. Both of them took it pretty well. My brother didn't take it so well. He wanted to know if we could just take our house with us. Then he cried himself to sleep. This whole thing is a lot tougher than I thought it would be. I mean, hearing your best friend have a complete breakdown on the phone is not something that is kicks and giggles. It really hurts. But in a lot of ways I don't feel like reality has set in yet. I mean, the whole thing just doesn't seem real yet. (Yeah, it better get real by the end of the month, huh?) But yeah, seriously you guys, all of you, leave me comments. All of my friends get about 80 and I get none. I'm not even joking. If you read this, I don't care if you leave a stupid nothing, leave a comment.

You Are 24 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Last Day at MVHS

Because of the situation in Minerva, yesterday was my last day at MVHS. There were tears all around. It was depressing. Because of exams, I said good-bye to all of my friends at different times but yesterday was by far the worst. When I went upstairs to make sure my locker was totally cleaned out 3 of my friends were there. Aaron, Maggie, and Shayley were all up there. I had said good-bye to Maggie and Shayley, but Aaron is the one who really choked me up. I got a picture with him and he gave me a hug and said "Oh, I think I'm gonna cry. I'm gonna miss you." I about lost it. It was terrible. So here are the pics I took. (From Top to Bottom: Jessica Oosting, Anna Easterday, Jessica McQuigg, Maggie Schorr-Zollars, Me and Aaron Hanchey)

1 year in posting

Happy Anniversary to About Absolutely Nothing! This is the 1-year anniversary of my blog and my 200th post. Here is the post from my first day:

Road Trip
One of the things I love most about summer, spring, and winter breaks is my trips to work with Dad. He works from home but is on the road a lot, so when I'm not at school I go with him sometimes. This is so fun because even though I have to get up really early sometimes (not my favorite thing in the world to do) I can get out of the house and just listen to the Ipod and ride in the car all day. I am a really wierd kid, I mean how many kids do you know who would rather go to work with their parents than play on the Xbox... wait. Let me think about that. Hmmmm. That's a toss up. I'll get back to you on that.

YAY!!!!! I'm done with another year! Freedom at last! I can't believe this school year is finally over. It's gone really, really fast. The school year has been full of projects and I had a teacher who had us memorize a whole lot of stuff. Gettysburg Address, Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech, and the Declaration of Independence. Thank the Lord for "Schoolhouse Rock". Ha Ha Ha

Post #199

This is post 199. Wow. June 6th was the date of my first post. I think I may not post till then so that would be 200 posts in a year. Cool. Well, look at that stunning young lady in the picture. Looks like an idiot doesn't she? I don't claim her. LOL. WEll I haven't posted in about a week, so here's what's up. My aunt and cousins came over last weekend and we went to the park.The park has this bouncy rolly slide which is what you see me in all my grace on in the picture to my left. Well, apparently the more mass you have the faster you go, so I zoomed down that thing. Thus, the look of shock on my face. LOL. I've been working on a project most of the week for English. It's almost done and I really wish it was totally done. It's getting old. Exams are this coming week. I am so nervous about those. Especially Algebra. I have a D in that class. It is the only class I can get away with a D in. I hate math and have never been good at it. So my parent's cut me some slack on it. However there was a mix-up in history, which I ALWAYS have an A in and I thought I had turned in this packet for homework and hadn't and my grade dropped to a C! Thank goodness I straightened that out! Well, other than that, not much to report. My life is pretty boring at the present.
