16 Wishes the movie

Vote for ME!

Dear Blog,

Today I started working on my campaign for Student Body President.  I presented my whole plan to Principal Smith and I think he was really impressed.  I had mock-ups of all of my posters, lawn signs, buttons and bumper stickers displayed for him on big white poster boards.  He just kept smiling and nodding and every now and then he laughed out loud and told me I was the only candidate on the ballot.

(Gasp!)  Do you think he was laughing at me?

Well, I don't care if he was.  When I do something, I do it perfectly.  So what if no one else is running?  My campaign is going to be totally professional.  It'll be good practice for the future.

"Krista Cook for President of the United States."

It's about time the White House got painted yellow.



My BFF is a guy

Girls are fickle.  (Love that word.  Rhymes with pickle.  Heehee.)  One minute they loathe you but change your shoes to some designer brand and they cuddle right up.  That's why my best friend forever is a guy.

Jay Kepler.  The most loyal, constant, dependable, sometimes dorky friend I could ever have.  We have fun no matter what we're doing.  Just last week we laughed ourselves sick while simultaneously studying for a history test and baking chocolate chip cookies.  Or maybe all the cookies we ate made us sick.

Just because we're best friends, doesn't mean we share everything.  He can't stand the color pink and I can't stand that t-shirt he wears that says "Save the Muskrat!"  But he has other fine qualities that make up for his lack of fashion sense.

He plays a mean game of foosball and never just lets me win.
He's good at sports but doesn't let them take over his life.
He texts me in the morning just to say hi.
He'll stay on the phone with me all night if I'm feeling sad.

He's awesome.  I think I'll keep him.

Love you,


“I Just Got Pranked”

A Jay for Everyone

**Congratulations Jodie, you will be getting your 2 Jac Vanek bracelets shortly!  Thank you to all who wrote in and told us about your best friends, it was so tough to choose!**

It's rare to find a friend like Jay, but when you can, it's something to be truly cherished. Is there a Jay in your life? Tell us about him (or her)! Keep it short or tell us everything (ok...maybe not EVERYTHING everything), and you can both win a limited edition 16 Wishes bracelet by Jac Vanek. Respond to this post and you're entered to win!



Today in Government class we learned all about the Cold War and it made me think about Abby & Krista.  It's just so irritating that they don't get along.  I'm sure they both have good reasons why they can't stand each other, but it's been nine years since they started feuding.  Enough already!

The weird thing is I think they'd actually like each other if they could just stop with the loathing.  They're girls.  They both love to do girly things.  Like shopping.

I vote for "detente."   It's pronounced "day-taunt" and it's how they ended the Cold War.  Here's the definition:  "The easing of tensions or strained relations between nations by agreements or understandings."  I think Abby & Krista need to ease up and understand each other.

If I was President, I'd make them sit in a room together and talk it out.  Or go shopping.

I <3 Logan Buchanan!

I've decided to make an addition to the dictionary.  I'm pasting a pic of Logan Buchanan next to the word "dreamy."  And "perfect."  And "hot."  And maybe  "blathering idiot" because that's what I turn into every time I see him.

Logan Buchanan is the finest male human I have ever laid eyes on.  I've been totally crushing on him ever since sixth grade when my mom made me take saxophone lessons.  Do you know how heavy those things are?  The case alone weighed more than I did!  So it was inevitable that I'd be lugging that behemoth to the band room (which, insanely, is in the basement of our school) and trip and fall and land right on top of Logan.

I chipped a tooth and looked so ridiculous I pretended to be sick so I could stay home for three days.  I finally wore my dad down with a barrage of begging and tears so he'd pay to have the dentist fix it.  When I came back to school with my shiny new tooth, Logan actually noticed.

I stopped playing the saxophone.

I never stopped loving Logan Buchanan.

I think I'll make him one of my 16 Wishes.

Love you!

Meet my neighbor, Krista

I want to be excited.  I really do.  My 16th birthday is getting closer and it's supposed to be the most perfect, amazing day of my life.  And then I think of Krista Cook.  GRRR!!!

Krista Cook is my mortal enemy and I don't even know why.  When we were 7 years old, she suddenly decided to ruin my life.  It's ALL she does!  All day, everyday, she lives to torture me!

And then, every year around this time, it gets worse.  Because Krista Cook and I have the same birthday.  You heard me:  we celebrate the day of our birth on the exact same day!  We're both turning sixteen and we're both planning Sweet Sixteen parties and I just know she'll do everything in her power to ruin it for me.

It's so wrong on so many levels.

I wish some Birthday Fairy would just come along and zap her.

Love you!


Best Friends Forever

Hello.  My name is Jay Kepler and I'm writing this blog for extra credit in English Composition.  Mrs. Hackle, my English teacher, always says write what you know, so I guess I'll just write about my not very exciting life.

Or I can write about Abby Jensen.

Everybody thinks we're dating or something because we hang out together all the time, but we're just friends.  Really.  I have no additional feelings for Abby besides friendship.  Nada.  None.  Nyet.

Abby's 16th Birthday is coming up soon and it's such a big deal to her, the pressure is really on to find a gift that lives up to the occasion.  Do you know what would happen if I got the wrong gift?  Have you ever seen one of those movies where the earth is being destroyed by aliens or volcanoes or too much plastic being tossed into the landfills and life as we know it ceases to exist?  It would be like that.  Only with more tears.

If you're reading this and you have any good ideas, I'd love to hear them because I have to get her the perfect gift.  Because Abby & I are just friends.  And only friends.




Abby’s 16 Wishes

Hey everyone!   I am SO excited.  Summer is coming and that means IT'S ALL BEGINNING! The official countdown to my 16th birthday, which I affectionately refer to as The Best 16th Birthday in the History of 16th Birthdays!

My name is Abby Jensen -- or as my name will appear on my new driver's license, Abigail Louise Jensen.  EEEEeeeeee!  I can hardly wait to drive and have freedom and privacy and all the other things I wrote down on my Wish List.

I started it when I was 7 and it's taped to the inside of my closet door.  "Abby Jensen's 16 Wishes."  Sixteen very specific wishes I'm hoping will come true as soon as my big day comes. My brother Mike says I'm delusional to dream so big, but he has no idea what a girl like me is capable of.

I hope you'll bookmark my blog and check back for updates on my plans for my Sweet Sixteen party.  My best friend Jay is going to be there.  He's a total sweetheart and I know you're going to love him.  I've invited some really amazing people too, like Debby Ryan and Jean-Luc Bilodeau (such an awesome name, right?)

I've got SO much more to tell you, so stay tuned.

Love you!  Abby
