Almost Done

So I finally made a decision that I am going to take at least a semester off and work full time. It didn't go over well when I told my mom. She shunned me for a day but I think we are okay now. It was just the initial blow that got her. My Grandma cried herself to sleep that night. I don't understand why they are so worried for me. My mom basically told me she thinks I am going to fail at life because I will quit when something gets hard but I told her it is a waste of money to continue going to school when I have no idea what I want right now. I am going to miss the few friends I have made but I will try to visit and talk to them as much as possible. Well I have to go to a meeting with a guy that is going to give me all the information i need to leave my college. I will write more later. Bye.

It's getting better!!!

Okay, so far this week has been the best week of college so far. I have made a bunch of friends and have just had a great time. Unfortunately it is also the worst week of college because I have to write a 10 page paper and a 5 page source summary, 2 page paper summary. Then add on two other 2 page papers for two of my other classes. I hate homework and unfortunately I have the biggest homework load I have had thus far in college. See this is just my luck. I finally start to enjoy the college life right as I decide I want to take a semester off. But it wasn't really ever the fact that I didn't really have any friends. It has always been about the schooling part. I honestly don't think i could do 4 more years of homework. I can barely take this semester. Well, I am really tired and I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow, but I wanted to let you all know that College has gotten a lot better. Goodnight all!

I have no clue....I'm so indecisive!!!

So I found out today that my sisters roommate is moving out next semester and she wants me to move in with her. I don't know if i want to do it though. I love her to death and I know it would be an experience but I don't know if I could be away from home that long. If she lived where I do it would be no problem, or if she lived somewhere cool. I don't know. I have a lot to think about.

More videos...and the future

I am so excited to film a bunch of videos today. I have a lot planned and I have a lot to say. I am looking forward to the next couple months and I have high hopes! I am actually excited for something and that hasn't happened in awhile. Who would have thought that it would feel this good to say that I am happy about taking a semester off to figure things out. I have been thinking a lot about what I want to do in that time and I really hope it works out. I really hope that you guys like what I have planned!!! Look forward to videos soon!

Will there be a next semester?

So the more and more I think about it the more I want to take a semester off. The first reason is that I cannot take my roommate for another semester. She isn't mean but we just don't mix well. Commuting is not an option because my mom doesn't like me driving in the winter. I have adapted to college life and it is going a lot better than at the beginning, but the school/classes part is what I feel isn't right for me or at least not at the moment. I really feel that taking a semester off is what's best for me. I can get a full time job and start earning money instead of working my way into debt. The only thing that is holding me back from doing this my mom. She really wants me to finish off the year and then decide. I don't believe that will change my mind and it would just be a waste of my time and money. Anyone have any advice on how to get my mom on my side?

Today was a much better day. I think I just had a meltdown yesterday. Talk to you guys later. I just thought you guys should know that I am doing better!!!

I just don't know anymore...

  Okay guys I have a feeling this one might be a long one. I have a lot to get off my chest. So here it goes:

1. I think honestly I am depressed now. I have spent the last week and a half watching Veronica Mars. Seriously it has been my life. I lived, ate and breathed Veronica Mars. I was sucked into it's world and now I have no clue what to do next. It helped me through the last week so much.  It made me happy, and now that's it done I feel all alone again. I miss smiling and laughing.

2. College isn't really that bad, I actually had some fun today at the Homecoming Football game but I still don't feel that close to anyone here. I know I need to get out more and I am planning on working on that this week. Please don't lecture me on my unsocialness. I don't know what's wrong with me. I just feel so different since I have been at college. I don't think I do well being all by myself; having to start new. I think I need one or the other. I either need to live far away where it isn't possible for me to go home when I have a problem or live at home and commute. I wish i could say that I was the type of person that could just walk up to anyone and introduce myself. I go over it again and again in my mind thinking that, that is really me. And I think that is partially me just waiting to break out. I am just too scared to do it, and I don't know why. I want to be more outgoing I really do, I look up to people that can do that like: Veronica Mars, Dorothy Rachow, and Becca Guagliardo.

3. I am saying that I am in a rut and I need help. I would really appreciate your prayers. There is some other stuff that's on my mind but I feel that it is too personal to write it on here, so if you want to know then message me on facebook and I'll tell you what I can. Thanks for reading this. If you have gotten this far then I know you are a true friend. Thanks.

BTW: I would totally be your girlfriend Logan Echolls except you would have to be a christian.

Too bad you are a character in a show that has left me so depressed.

Veronica Mars has been my life...

Okay, so I am going to start off with a little update. I have been thinking a little bit about what I am going to be doing next semester. So to get a lot of you off my back I still have no clue. So please stop asking me, I don't like being questioned about this stuff. I have no clue what I want to do but I know that is okay because I was reading my devotional the other day and I was shocked. It struck me, like it was a total God thing. It was like it was meant for me. It said: do not worry about tomorrow, just live for today. It also had a bunch of other stuff that related to me but it's late and I'm tired and i don't feel like looking it up. But it made me feel a lot better. I know when the time is right God will lead me in the right direction.

Okay and now onto the good stuff. I AM ADDICTED TO VERONICA MARS!!! It is the best show ever. I'm hooked. I've already watched the first two seasons and I'm going to start the third and final one tomorrow. It's so sad. I don't want it to be over, well at least I have one more season to watch. I admire her so much. I wish I had the guts to do half of the things she does. But this show has literally been my life since I started watching it. I haven't left my computer screen unless I had class or work. This show has taken up all my time, but I don't care because it's AMAZING!!! So if you want to know what's new with me you''ll have to watch veronica mars, because like i said it's been my life. Well, I am ubber tired so I am going to bed so I can get a good nights rest so I can have fun for homecoming weekend!!!

A weekend home...

So I had a great weekend home, I just wish I would have been there longer. I finally told my mom about the whole college thing. I still don't know exactly what I am going to do after but I am okay with that for now. Well I will write more later, but I just don't feel like writing right now. Sorry.

Haha...another funny story

Okay, so I am tired of all this serious stuff so here's another funny story, or at least it was funny to me.

   Okay, so for some random reason I decided to look out the little peep hole we have in our door to see whose at the door. I was bored and was just like, huh, let's look out the peep hole. So I did that and right as I did it 3 guys walk up to my door. Haha, I freaked, I was like oh they saw me and then I was like oh, yeah they can't. Hahaha, they were looking at the picture me and my roommate posted of us on our door. Then the guys said something but i didn't hear it. It was soooo funny. I was laughing so hard, but i tried to keep it quiet because I didn't want the guys to hear me. I immediately called my sister Jessie and told her the story because i thought it was that funny. I tried to call Kayla but she didn't answer.

   What makes this more funny is the day before I did the same thing because I was bored and all of a sudden my roommate came up and put her key in the door. I jumped and ran to my bed so she didn't know I was looking out the peep hole. Haha. I crack myself sometimes.

Okay, well I have to get moving. I have to work today. I don't really have to get ready because I am just sitting at a desk and calling people. It's not my ideal job to be a "telemarketer" even though we aren't supposed to call ourselves that, but at least it gets me some money.

My future?

Okay so first I am going to talk about what I did today that I was sooo excited for. I went to the ZOO!!! I was so happy, I love the zoo. FYI: that would be a great date place. I was there to volunteer with my intervarsity group on campus. It was elephant appreciation day so we helped out with the different booths. It was fun, but my favorite part was walking around a little before and after. The only thing that kind of sucked was that we didn't get to walk around the whole place. My group had to get going and they were really hungry, but I am sure I will go again sometime this year. So that was my exciting news. I'll post some pics later.

In other news I have some serious stuff to talk about. So I have been thinking a lot lately, as many of you may know. I have been in college for three weeks now and I have been evaluating if this is really for me. I mean I don't know if I can do 4 more years of school. I don't know if I have it in me, or if I even want to. I have been going through a couple of different options in my head so here they are"
   1. I will finish off this semester then commute next semester and see how it goes. I would decide where I would go from there after I see how my classes go.
     - Don't get me wrong I have always wanted to be a teacher but I don't know if that's what I really want right now in my life. I have so many ideas running around in my head it's so hard to decide what I want. I have been talking to people and praying but I still don't know. It's hard to pick a path.

    2. I would transfer next semester or next year to WCTC and pursue cosmetology. I have really been getting into cosmetology the past year, and I really like it. I would just have to see how much it would cost and if my financial aid would cover it, because this is a very likely option if I get a good package like I got from my current college.
              - with this option I would be close to home and I could get a job and start earning some money.

    3. I could suck it up and stay at Carroll and finish it off.
               -    this is an option i really don't want to do. I just feel like it isn't right for me.

Like I said I have spent a lot of time praying and thinking about these things, and it scares me because this will effect the rest of my life. I just don't know what to do. I would love it if you guys could give me some of your input and guidance. I hate not knowing my plans...

I'll try to make this one short

     K. So today was interesting. I had my first official day at my campus job. I'm a phoneathon caller. If you don't know what that is, I call alumni and ask for money. I know what you all are thinking, but it's not too bad. i actually had a lot of fun today. I also learned something new and this comes in the form of a story.
    So a guy that works with me came in today and everyone asked him the same question: Where in the heck did you hair and eyebrows go, and what happened to your head. Well, he told us it was a long story but told it anyway. So here it goes, the big advice. Don't pass out drunk with your shoes on. Apparently it gives people permission to do whatever they want to you. So after he passed out some guys buzzed his hair and shaved off his eyebrows. They took a bunch of his stuff and spread it around campus. They drew all over him and then dropped him on some randoms persons' door step. Like literally dropped him, he has a huge gash on his head to proove it. Luckily he found his phone hours later in the football locker room. Yeah, so learn from this guy. Don't ever pass out with your shoes on, and better yet. If you don't drink you wont pass out. Problem solved.

   In other events I watched tv all night. It was actually really nice to just sit down and catch up on a bunch of shows I've missed all summer and the start of this school year. To start out I watched a movie on Hallmark. Man did I miss hallmark. I love watching the movies with my mom and my sister. There is not one movie that hallmark has made that has been truely bad. The funny thing was, I was skyping my sister the whole time I was watching it.

   And lastly for the night I have one thing to say: I LOVE DAILYBOOTH!!!

Follow me at:

K, well Night!!!

College Life

Hey Everyone,

        In case you don't know me my name is Jenny Shoop. I am in my third week of college and it's my freshman year. It was a bit rough for me starting out. I am shy when it comes to meeting new people, which is interesting because I'm so not shy when I am with my friends. I found out I'm xenophobic. Look it up, it totally describes me. I have met a few people on my floor through intervarsity which is great. I wish that this year will just get started already. I feel like I am at a standstill. I miss my friends and my old youth group, but i know that it's good for me to venture out. So far I am not too pleased with the college life. I know a bunch of people that are having a blast but I'm just not. I have done a few fun things though, but so far they aren't fun enough to cancel out the bad. I am seriously thinking about commuting next year. I don't think the dorm life is worth 4,000 dollars to me. I would rather save that money and us it on something that I will actually enjoy.
        I was supposed to go to the football game today, but the people that I was going with I guess forgot about me and left without me. Well, i guess that's okay because now I have more time to write on here and do some other things I have been putting off. Ugg....all I have been doing today is blowing my nose. I have a stupid cold. So far the only good thing that has happened to me today is I sold one of my purse organizer's. If you want to check them out here's the link:
        I think that's all I want to write for now, so I guess I will talk to you all later.
