iMessage previews on mac

Hello,
I hate having iMessage on my mac! Is there any way to stop my mac from popping the message up in a bubble while I'm out texting from my phone?? It doesn't seem to give me the option in preferences. I also have "save history when conversations are closed" left off, but when I open messages on my computer it loads all of my current text conversation. I would rather just have ichat back!
Please help!
THanks!

System Preferences ---> Notifications ---> Change the notification type for iMessages.

iMessage is downloading all of your conversations from the cloud that you created on your phone while you were away. It's nice.

This technically *is* iChat, you need to familiarize yourself with the operating system more. iMessage can easily be turned off in System Preferences. (iCloud pane if memory serves)

Notifications! I had no idea. Thank you!

...and yes, I do need to get to know this OS. So far I hate it.
