Dear Journal,
Not much going on here today...yet. Today, Leorah was reading a book and one part it said 'it is never too late to make a New Years resolution.' Leorah then realized she never made one yet-and neither had I! Luckily, she read that instead of something like, "Whats your New Years Resolution?" or worse yet got that kind of question thrown at her! We immediately made ours. Leorah decided hers would be to get all her goals she made last year for this year done. Not to be rude or anything but I don't think thats possible...Ops! I think she saw that!
Mine is to try to keep up with my projects I started. What do you think? Its really clever because the only 'project related' things I am working on is 1) To get the most attention 2) this journal.
Anyways, I'm going to go make a list. Write more later!

Dear Journal,
Today I was thinking about how much journals and diaries say about people. Not only does it say what they do but how they feel about it and how they deal with it. The inside front and back covers say a lot too. Leorah's grandma has a friend who is 97 and she has kept a diary ever since she was 15 and wrote in it EVERYDAY!!! Imagine that...It talks about things like when Anne Frank diary was first published and all sort of things like that! Anyways, on the front and back inside cover of everyone, she has 'life quotes'. Leorah wishes she had put something positive on hers instead. On the inside front cover of hers, she has this saying-
"Do you wanna wake up with a sparkle in your eyes, a smile on your face, a hope in your heart and shout, "GOOD MORNING YOU BIG WONDERFUL WORLD!" ???
and on the back, it has a picture of this grumpy creature in a messy bed in a messy room saying, "Me neither!"
After thinking about it, I would probably do the same thing and leave Freddy the 'inspirational, hopeful, 'joyfilled' quotes.
Write more later! Whisper
P.S. Word I thought Leorah today- Jollification :>:>:>

Dear Journal,
Sorry I have not wrote in here in such a long time! This Winter Vacation has been so fun I have almost forgotten myself! This morning I woke up sad at the thought that school starts up again. I tried to ignore the fact but in this house, it is an impossible task. Leorah had tried to ignore it too but like me, she failed. I watched her drag her feet one at a time to the computer, sit down, and log onto her school. [She does on-line (k12) school.] She grumbled through her messages from teachers, mumbled through her progress, scribbled out what subjects she needs to work harder at, sighed sadly as she clicked her 'Daily Plan' button, and jumped for joy once she got there. SCHOOL DOESN'T START UNTIL WED.!!! She wondered if it were some mistake since everyone else seemed to be starting school today but really, she doesn't care. Her plan said Vacation Day! so she is going to VaCaTiOn!!! She then actually gave me a decent 'good morning', ran to her room, got ready for a FuN day and rushed out the door with her sled AFTER she gave me a celebration snack!
Write more later! /Whisper
P.S. Freddy said that she doesn't think she will write today as she is too busy messing up her cage again as it just got cleaned.

Dear Journal,
You will never believe the weekend we had here! NO hot water, NO microwave, NO TV, NO radio, 5 min of computer time each day, guests name it! Everyone's power over here was limited this weekend with a capital L. The power company was having troubles you see. Anyways, it was extremely hard. Leorah finally came up with an idea of whenever she feels like complaining for everything just shutting off, she would think of what Anne Frank and what she would say. She got this idea of me and Freddy imagining we were birds that would be sacrificed to the gods in the middle ages and stuff like that. Or of parrots that left leg was tied up to the ship and if the ship sunk, they couldn't save themselves. I never had to complain so I didn't get to imagine being one of them. <: I did however imagine that Freddy was dying and I saved her. Actually, Leorah imagined that I was imagining that and although I wasn't, I agreed with her as that is a fun thought. It's funner thinking that I saved her by giving up my own life. :>
Reading my bird friend, Juni's journal today, I saw an amazingly simply yet, cunning way of getting attention! And the best part is it doesn't involve death but is dealt with the same way! It's to hurt yourself. I fell down from my cage several of times today and each time, Leorah rushed to me and was all, "Are you OK?" She has now caught up with me though that I have made a game so I will have to think of something else to do.
Well Freddy wants to get on now. Bye! - Whisper

Dear Journal,
Freddy spent all day on this watching a movie and looking up *other* cockatoos. (Sigh) I can finally relax! Never mind. Freddy is dancing to "Who Let the Dogs Out." Lol! You should see her! One day I will have to get her dancing to one of these "mad" songs!
Anyways, I just read her last entry and saw that she put a bird to look up and that birds family. I decided that I will follow that move. The bird I want you fellow birds to look up is a budgerigar named Sally. Sally is related to the bird Freddy talked about and is a bird worth your vote.
Well I got to go tell Freddy that she better turn the music down in case someone comes over. You can probably guess why. Everyone will gather around her, not me. - Whisper

Dear Journal,
Leorah never worked with me today. }:> Even if it is 1:40 PM only. She keeps talking about what she will be doing on her Winter Vacation. And want me to tell you the worst? She will be gone practically her whole vacation so she won't get to see me every day! She is happy about where she will be going so I guess I thats good. Right?
Freddy has been doing better about certain things but may I say she has been getting a lot of attention and she gets to see the Christmas tree. She is working now on doing something rather then just dancing. The thing is is to learn something about Christmas everyday. Today, that thing is about keeping CHRIST in Christmas. She learned that by looking at two ornaments. One said 'Merry X-MAS!' while the other one said "Merry CHRISTmas!" Which one sounds better to you? We both say the second one. The first one sounds more like it is reminding you of the fun and treats. The second one reminds you of the true meaning of CHRISTmas. Basically, Freddy learned to-
Keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas! And so did I.
Bye 4 now! - Whisper

Dear Journal,
Today I found out that the worst things ever arrived in the mail. Cockatoo training moves. Just more time taken away from me and added to Freddy. Leorah promised she will take me out soon though as long as I behave so I will try not to complain.
Freddy copied me and made a Freddy's Diary account. }:-[ I am going to have to speak to her about that.
Leorah is coming back to this computer now for school so I better move it. Write more later. - Whisper

Freddy wrote in her online journal (Diary is what she calls it) so I thought I would write some more in mine. Leorah took a picture of a tree today. It looks so nice! The tree is outback. I never saw it before but Leorah told me she will take me out there once it gets warmer. I can't wait! Anyways, I will make a scrapbook and put the tree picture in it. It is like a little peice of heaven for a bird! Leorah said I stared at it for 7 full minutes but I don't believe her. I showed it to her by turning my back at it and stayed like that for 1 full minute. I only peeked back at the picture 4 times! Anyways, see what you do when you see it.
Freddy is going on about her movie she posted. It is only 3 sec. but she is really happy about it. She loaded it the wrong way though by not putting any tags on it so it might be hard to find. If she will be nice to me, I will post it's title once we find out. (Freddy forgot it's title!)
Got to go now. ?/Whisper

Dear Journal,
I wonder if any other bird has to deal with an annoying sister like I do to Freddy? Both me and Freddy love attention but it always seems as if Freddy gets it all. She is SO annoying! All she does is dance and groom her little pink spot which she has on her. She calls these to things about her her only survival to life. She basically means that without them, everyone would be looking and giving all the attention to me. Thats half way true and half way not. Not everyone looks at her but if she didn't have that spot or her talent, nobody would be looking at her. They would be looking at me.
I think that is the reason why she is so cold to me. If I weren't here, she wouldn't have to wake up at 5 O' clock AM to start her excercises or watch what foods she eats so that she will stay on top of her dancing scedual. She should be thankful for me though because if I weren't here, she would probably be what people call obease.
While she spends her time dancing away, I spend me time studying. I am directly behind my owners computer and since my three girls our homeschooled, I get to learn a bit my self. I help them out be giving them little hints every now and then. At times, I have to loosen a few of their nerves with my beek so they won't become overly grumpy. They get really mad but calm down after that. I have to do this a lot to my owner which name on this account is Leorah. Especially when it comes to her math. Algebra is I think one of her worst enemies. At least she had writen it down about 1,000,000 times on a piece of paper once. I couldn't see her face but I sensed that it was time to start my job as top bird. I snatched her hat and put it in her water dish. She what I am doing? I am getting her mind off her work. I think I should have probably just bit her arm that time because she was really mad. Freddy denies this but I think she did something to annoy when Leorah was eating her breakfast because she never apologiezed for locking me up and she never does that unless we both hit her nerve.
Well I have to go now. I have been soaking an cockatoo animal cracker in my water and I want to eat it before it drowns.
Sincerely, Whisper

P.S. Freddy made me change my whole account to Leorah's other email address. Isn't she the worst?
