Dealing with change can be very hard

Change does not change tradition. It strengthens it. Change is a challenge and an opportunity — not a threat.

Hi everyone. It is a partly cloudy day here where I live. So, everything has been OK so far the past week and a half. As you all know, there is a new admin on my page, Twitch and Jerk. I must be honest — it has been a bit hard for me. TaJ is my baby. It has been mine so long, and Shawnna has done a great job.

She has started conversation with so many of the fans. They all really seem to like her. But I am stupidly jealous of her. I like her a lot, but I’m just afraid that you all will like her more than me. She seems to be doing a better job than I am. I haven’t posted for the past week so she could get used to being an admin.

I also just felt like I couldn’t say anything because it wouldn’t be as good. I couldn’t say no to her when she asked to be an admin. I didn’t want to hurt her feelings, and I actually thought it would be cool for her to be an admin. I guess I just have to get used to change. I’m not a change person. It’s hard for me to deal with. Shawnna is doing a great job. I hope she keeps it up! I mean it.

School has been OK. I’m doing good in everything except in geometry. Math is my hardest subject. It feels more like a foreign language to me than Spanish does. Overall, it’s been alright.

I’m still editing a lot of things in my book. I haven’t moved forward, which bums me out. But I’m trying my best. I am editing chapter 2 and a little bit of chapter 1 still. I have added new characters. I decided to call the whole series, “The Manifest Series.”

I have decided to try and become a Youth Ambassador for TS next year, which will be my last year to apply. It’s too late to apply this year, as the national conference just took place April 18-19 in Washington, D.C. So, wish me luck for next year!

My grandfather’s dog died last night. I wasn’t there, but she was his best friend, and it must have been so heartbreaking. We are trying to find another dog for him because his wife already died from Alzheimer’s disease on Thanksgiving. He needs to have a companion so he’s not alone. We are looking for one for him.

My tics have been better since I got back on my Zoloft. My agitation has lowered. My nerves have kicked up because our dance competition is coming up in less than two weeks. I’m so nervous, but so excited!!! I hope I do OK. It’s my first competition that I’ve ever been in.

Also, I decided not to go to prom this year. My friends couldn’t make it, and my mom cringed at the thought of me going alone. She’s protective like that, haha! So, I am going to try to go to homeschooled homecoming in November. I’ll have a better chance at going with someone.

That’s all I have to say for the week. Hope you all have a wonderful week! :)
