12:29 pm - rain and floods
It has been raining non-stop here in the Maryland/Virginia/D.C. area. There has even been reported floods in D.C. All this rain means that I have been cooped up in the house all day for the entire weekend and it's killing me, I swear.

10:44 am - 2 more weeks
Well, I only have two more weeks until I go back to Memphis. Believe me....I am counting down the days. Me, my dad, and my step-mom are getting along, but my little sister is being so cruel....she's almost leaving me in tears. She gets away with a whole bunch of crap and NEVER gets in trouble for it. She got mad one time and threw my stuff all over the place. My dad said she would be punished for it. She was told that she would have to do a whole list of chores, but she never lifted a finger.

11:01 pm - I hate my life
all my dad looks at me as is a stupid bitch. Why am I here? I'm so sick of being me I wouldn't care if I just died off the face of the earth. No one seems to care about me anymore. All my friends keep backstabbing me. My best friend is going out with my X Andrew and decided to call and prank me. WHY! Why am I even still here?

11:05 pm - father trying to suck up
Well, I was never sent back to Memphis. I guess I never told you the story, did I? Well, basically, my father went crazy on me because I got into a fight with my sister, bobbi. He called me things that I wish not to mention. He even shoved me into the wall, because I wouldn't give him my cellphone and then he ended up locking me in the basement. Sounds abusive, I know. Well when he finally let me out of the basement he never even gave me the option of going home. Now he is trying to suck up and do all this stuff for me. He's even telling me that he's going to take me to Kings Dominion for my 18th birthday. I really don't want to go, because that is where I went with my x, andrew, when we went out of town. I can't wait until I go back to memphis.

04:13 pm - life in the forest
I've been spending most of my time here in the woods, down by the creek. It's very peaceful and a great place to get things off your mind. I saw about two deer yesterday and the deer in the woods are very tame. I was very close to one until my sister, amber, screamed for my sister, angie, out by my house. I was pretty deep into the woods and you could still here her. I feel like I'm living in the country or back in a small cabin in the forest, because our house comes with everything. A big yard surrounded by woods, A road made with rocks, old would fences, and a well(sp?). There isn't much to do here, so I always have to find ways to entertain myself.

09:30 pm - happy
I have found that I'm pretty happy here in Waldorf. There is a lot to do and I have made many friends. I'm happy I came to Maryland, but I will still miss my friends in Memphis. I love you all.

07:57 pm - fresh start
ok, well as most of you can see I have deleted a lot of my entries. Basically my entries dealing with my X boyfriend Andrew. For those who have read them I know I made him sound like some sort of god, but boy was I wrong. He is deffenitly the type that will crush every dream you have and pull you down from the life that once made you happy. I was forced to leave Memphis because of this guy! I will be 18 in about a month and a half (July 7th) and I don't need someone like Andrew to keep me from my adult hood. All my friends have warned me about him when we were dating. They told me that a guy who was jealous was up to no good. I never listened and now I am suffering. It hurts me to block andrew out of my life after everything we went through, but I know the pain and suffering will eventually die off. I need to be close to the ones who truly love me and care for me. I lost contact with a whole lot of people and the one person who kept me strong through life...Jesus. I prayed Andrew would be the one and never understood why Jesus wouldn't grant that prayer. I understand now. I know he will forgive me and give me a fresh start. I also know that he will truly guide me to the person that I will spend the rest of my life with. Until then, I'm just going to carry on with life and go back to the way things were before I met Andrew Funk. Like a lady said at church, If Andrew is the one god wants me to be with....things will work out. But after what he did I can guarantee Andrew isn't the one god wants me to be with.

05:44 pm - M&G
Sorry I haven't updated about the concert before now, but here it is.
I went to the concert in DC and got a meet and greet. I went into the theater they were playing in during soundcheck and we saw them rehearse and get ready for the concert. Mackie was running around playing with Ashley Greyson and then I saw Kate, Natalie, Ezra, and Walker come in. (Ezra is just plain adorable) Well then Hanson went down and met the radio winners and then came back to Hanson.Net. We got to talk to them for a while. I told Zac I was on the TN street team and he yelled out "WAHOO!" and scared me. He would have hugged me but he saw how he startled me so he just shook my hand and patted me on the back. Then I told them that I was in MD visiting my dad and this was a 16th b-day present. I also told Ike how I met him four years ago and he drew on me with permanent marker. He laughed and said "I was getting someone back for all the times my shirt was written on." we then took a group picture and I said "Wow I'm so tall do I get behind you guys or what?" and Ike laughed and said "nah stand right here." and he held out his arm around a girl that was standing next to him. We then had to go and Taylor told me "Happy 16th" and I thanked him and went outside. I went sightseeing before the concert so when the concert started I was having a blast and Zac dedicated Lost without each other to the Street Team people. at the end they sang If only and then they said that they had to go. Me and my friend went to the back getting ready to leave and they came out again. I saw Ashley and hugged him and thanked him for the M&G and he smiled and said "your welcome" and then he came over and gave me a sheet of the list of songs Hanson made up to sing. (The set list) and after the show I met Kate. This girl couldn't have been any sweeter. I told her I was part of the street team and she said that was awesome and asked my name. I told her Mandy and then she said she liked my sweater. (That was wierd sense she sold it to me It was a Hanson hoodie.) after that I had to go but I had a great time!

Hello Washington, DC M&G winners!
By now, you have all received and responded to the email Ash sent to you inviting
you to the Washington, DC M&G. It is now my job to give you the rest of the
First, I want to remind you to print out the original email you received. There are
rare times when a winner's name is accidentally omitted from the master list. The
email will prove you were given a M&G. You may also want to print out this email.
Second, be sure to take a photo id. A driver's license, school id, passport, etc
Third, at the end of this email, you will see a list of each person who has been
given a M&G for your show. When it gets close to the meeting time, we need you to
find each other and all gather together. Unlike the last tour, the staff will not
hunt you down! If you aren't with the group when it's time to go in for the M&G, you
will miss your chance. Though this might seem harsh, please realize that the guys
are on a tight schedule. Time wasted looking for a missing M&G winner is time you
may get extra with the guys!
Fourth, the guys will do their best to both sign something for you and pose for a
photo. However, in some instances, you will have to choose one or the other because
of limited time. Go ahead and think now of which you'd rather have so that if you
have to choose, you'll be ready with an answer.
48 hours after the show, you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for your M&G
photos. Please, when you email, include your username and real name and a good
description of what you were wearing. Telling me, "I had on jeans and a t-shirt"
will not help me ID you! :)
To the reporter, you will be receiving a separate email with more instructions.
One more note, you are currently scheduled to be at the venue at 5pm, but I believe
that will most likely change to 6pm. When I confirm the exact time, I'll let you
Most of all, have a wonderful time at the M&G and at the show.
