Allow my to clarify...

I have been requested (by my mom) to explain what I have been talking about when I mention Twitter.

Here goes.

Twitter, mom, is a type of network where people, famous & not so famous people, blog in 140 characters or less... it's a mini-blog, if you will. Most people like to update their "status" or right-the-wrong in the tabloids, or also people use Twitter as a means of conversing-- bridging the gap between star and obsessive fan. You catch my drift? Once you become a "twittee" (I'm not sure if I made this up or not..?) you are then able to follow peoples twitters and see what they are up to and what not. Creepy? I think yes. But, heck. I just got one so I can hope and cross my fingers to get a piece of Dane Cook. We'll see.

I hope this is a bit of help! Remember: I'm still very fresh to this, I still have much to learn in the Twitter world.

greetings from Jill!

So I am just learning how to use my webcam... it's only been like months and months. but hey, i'm a busy college student-- cut me some slack.

Just wanted to say Hi! Hope it was a great day for all of you.

P.S. I think I am already beginning to show early signs of tweet-addiction from Twitter. This could be bad.

Summer needs to hurry up && get here already!!

So I can play boccee ball!!!

& throw frisbees & have picnics & get sunkissed & have bonfires & go camping & go to the lake & get grass stains & BBQs & sleepovers & walks at the park with my doggies & lots of cartwheels & hiking & no homework.

I think i'll stop there. the no homework part is the most important factor on why summer absolutely pwns every other season.

what I thought would be a dreadful day.....

totally ended up being a surprisingly decent afternoon! Although classes were long, and perhaps at times excrusiatingly went much better than anticipated. I had an outline due in my first class, a speech in my next class and then after my last, I needed to finish a 6 page paper for philosophy. All of which is over and done with! I don't understand myself sometimes... I make things to be huge ordeals which are actually really miniscule when you look at the big picture.

Now- I get to relax for the night && babysit an adorable little girl.

&& when i get back-- it's american idol time!! woot woot :)

dweeby mc-dweeberson.

Ok. I know I'm an enormous dweeb. But seriously. Right at this very moment..well pretty much every moment of every day actually..I am missing my dogs terribly.

Even though I just saw them I believe it was on Monday..I can't get enough of them! They are my heart and my soul.

Isn't he the cutes?

My favorite, favorite, FAVORITE song.

James Morrison.
You have got to listen to this guy.
He is quite amazing.
&&& I love his music..probably to the extent that it's unhealthy.

Did you know-- that when you eat an average apple, you are consuming over 30 pesticides...even after washing it???

Did you know-- that the top 12 highly contaminated foods are strawberries, green (&red) bell peppers, spinach, cherries, peaches, cantaloupe, celery, apples, apricots, green beans, grapes and cucumbers?
-----> It is scary to think that I eat almost all of the above (with the exception of apricots) on a weekly basis, all of which are not organic.

Did you know-- that 9000 people die each year in the U.S. due to food related illnesses?

I have been doing a lot of research lately about the advantages of eating organic foods, and some information that I have stumbled upon is rather eye-opening. There are thousands of pesticides that can make their way into our food. Antibiotics, growth hormones, insecticides, and many more things are leading causes to some serious diseases, cancer being one of the biggest.

All I know is, I am not Ok with this. It might be time to start changing what I put in my body. Who's with me?
