Yesterday was my seventeenth birthday. My sister gave me a cd: The Best From Rebecca St. James. I got a football and a deck of cards from my mom. My dad seems to give unusual gifts. Last year, he gave me a razor and some shaving cream. This year, he gave me books to study for the new SAT. I have still been working on my web site. It is somewhat inoperational, but you can see the progress at cyberpear.

I got a pay raise working at Sam's Pizza and Subs. Some of the people working there act like idiots pretty much all of the time.

Now, for the real reason I am writing... I have installed Apache and PHP on my computer and am in the process of transferring over my web site. You can see the partially done redesign on my computer. So far, I have gotten rid of the background image and made the menu look good by using CSS.

Any suggestions for the site would be greatly appreciated.

The past two weeks in school, we took SOL tests in school. They were, for the most part very easy considering that you had to get something like 60% of the questions correct. In Programming class, my friend nitric and I have been assigned to the php and SSI part of the school's web site. It hasn't been uploaded yet, though.

The other post that says that it is from today was written before I went to bed last night. Today in English class, I got lucky and didn't get picked to give my oral report. I have a lot of homework to do tonight, so I had better get started. P.S. My Mom would like to get a free license for Opera 8. You can help by clicking the link. If you want to, and I recomment it, you can download it.

My staying up until 1, 2, or even 3 am killed me this afternoon. I was supposed to run an hour for track. I took an nap and slept 6 hours. By the time I woke up, it was dark outside. I will be up late tonight because I have an oral presentation in English class tomorrow that I haven't even started preparing for.

Last Saturday, I got a job working at Sam's Pizza and Subs. When I asked for an application, they immideatly hired me. I worked for about 4 hours that day. On Friday, I got my paycheck for April. I had only worked that one day, so it was for $20. Work was difficult on Firday becuase there were many customers. This Saturday (yesterday, becasue it is after midnight), work was much easier. At one point, I actually got all of my work done. My main job is to wash dishes. When the dishes were done, I worked the oven. We clock in and cock out on a computer. I waited for 5 minutes before I clocked out so that I would have gotten an entire 7 hours. I took home with me a pizza and a soda. I ate the emtire pizza myself.
