I feel so accomplished finishing the first half of my sophomore year ;D ;D Only two and a half years of college left... ;D ;D I am really sorry for not writing sooner, but it was a combination of school and nothing to write about :p ::) So just have a happy Advent and Merry Christmas :) Remember, Jesus is the REASON for the season :) And please pray for the families affected by the Connecticut school shootings today.

Nothing much...

So it's November which means I check the radio for Christmas music everyday ;) Yes, I'm crazy ;) I usually find it somewhere within 10 days or so...anywho, I'm camping with my family right now and having fun, so I'm just going to answer the questions I was tagged in from my good friend Grace's blog :)

1) Skirts or jeans? Either. But if I'm going to church or anyplace nice, a skirt. But jeans for roughhousing or moving around a lot.

2) Cats or dogs? KITTIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D Soft, cuddable, fuzzy balls of cuteness!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D

3) Cows or horses? Horsies :D I love riding them, feeling the wind in my I ever actually ride :p ;)

4) Wood floors or carpet? Wood floor. Ton of fun to slide and sit on, and it looks purty ;)

5) Rain or sun? Either. But sun for beach weather, and rain for playing Ultimate Frisbee in ;)

Some news and a decision

I'm back! :p ;) First off, you haven't missed anything, and second of all, you kinda did ;) I have been debating and thinking, and I finally made the decision to stop going to school come January and start working full time at day care center. I've picked up applications and two of the places told me up front they're always looking to hire. I am so excited to see what happens, because I haven't really been happy for a little while. It's so secular where I am right now, and it's just a struggle. I also miss being with kids really bad, because I've baby-sat two summers in a row for a job, and I taught dance last year. But now I only have one class I co-teach once a week for 45 minutes, and it's not enough. I don't feel like I'm being used fully. I have so much more potential and nothing is happening. But if I'm able to work with kids again and not feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders(with school), then I'd be happy. So please pray everything works out :) :) :)

I'm alive!

Don't panic! I'm alive! I just...yeah :p I haven't been able to post because A) I forget B) I was focused on school and C) I forgot :p ::) But I'm doing okay :) School's been good, slightly busy. On Wednesday I had Spanish, then a theater test, then English, then a mythology test :p :p :p Loooooooooooooooooooong day to say the least :p But I got through it, and I just have to remember it'll only happen once a month ::) :p The life of a college student...bu right now I'm trying to avoid my homework :p I'm fighting something right now, and it stinks :p I think it's a virus. Yesterday I didn't feel so hot(scratchy throat, depleted energy, that string urge to stay home, sleep, and drink gallons of pop and tea), but I feel better today. I still have the urge to drink lots of pop, but my throat isn't scratchy anymore, and I'm just coughing a lot :p I also sneezed 7 times in a row this morning :p My head almost fell off :p ::) But my mom is having me gargle with salt water and do a thing called "Netty pot" which cleans out your sinuses. It ain't fun to do :p I just noticed "ain't" is in spell checker even though it isn't a word...what the heck? How does that work? ::) Anyway, back on topic. I never had a fever either, so that's good. But I was supposed to go to gymnastics last night and I have a Frisbee game to night but I can't go to either. Or couldn' I'm bummed about that :p I mean, I understand that I shouldn't over strain my body, but I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyy want to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :p :p :p I do have to be well for a party my friends and I are having tomorrow night though. Chick flicks, pizza, junk food, the works ;D ;D ;D So...yeah :p :p And I don't even know if any of you are still here since it's been almost a month since I've posted ::) I hope you are though! And I love ya for it! ;) *Cheesy game show host voice* Iiiiiiiit's quote tiiiiimmmmeee!!!!!! ;) ;) ;)

I left my quote book at home too, so you don't get a quote this week...sorry! :p But love y'all and happy trails!

School is almost here...again ;)

On Thursday classes start once again. But I'm taking fun stuff this semester! Spanish, English, mythology, and theater history. NO MORE MATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm really happy about that :D On Friday I had an awesome sleepover with some friends. We were up a lot of the night and got kinda was fun ;D ;D ;D ;D Then today I'm meeting with a really good friend for lunch whom I haven't seen in a year. And tomorrow night the eldest girl I nanny for(she's 13), is coming over for a horror movie sleepover ;) We both love those movies so I decided we'd have a little older/younger sister bonding time ;) Anywho, I'd like it if y'all would keep me in your prayers as I start my second year of college. Did I just say that? :p ;)

Happy belated birthday to me! :D

Okay, just gotta stop by and say it was my birthday on Sunday, so I am now legal in pretty much everything ;) I could even be a bartender now...jk ;) But I have to go to the SOS to renew my license and register to vote! Woot woot! :D :D Then later today I get to chat with one of my best friends in the whole wide world :D :D This coming week is also our county's 4-H fair, so I have to get my photographs put on the boards, and matte them...but I like doing it ;) It's almost therapeutic ;)

Nothing to report

It's been a good week, but...nothing to report. I've just been working and tonight I have Frisbee. Tomorrow I think I'm doing a photo shoot with some friends of mine for one of their books. Although I spent four days of last week in the water since it was so hot, so I got an ear infection :p I woke up crying several times last Saturday night and I went to redi-care on Sunday. I was put on antibiotics, but I was still taking Tylenol and Advil every couple hours :p I went to the doctor on Tuesday and the nurse said to start taking Benadryl at night, and it totally helped. My ear is still inflamed though, so my hearing ins't ::) But it's getting better, so that's good. And I was telling my mom on the phone(b/c my family has been camping since Tuesday), that with baby-sitting all day, it makes me feel like a mom between playing with the kids, feeding them, washing dishes, telling them to do their chores or cleanup, putting the baby to sleep, and other such things. Her reply? "Awwwwwwww!!!!!!" ;) ;) Have a good weekend! :)

Sad yet happy :)

You're probably wondering what I mean. I'm going to skip ahead and say, Cedar Point was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My friend Anna made me go on the Top Thrill Dragster which was out of this world! The minute we took off, my french braid came out of my hair. I know. That's how fast we were going :D :D :D :D :D :D My cousin's wedding was also last week, and I had so much fun dancing for four hours straight with...GRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You also might know her as Lady Maeve on the Fairy Tale Novel Forum. One of my bff's who lives allllllllll the way down in VA, came up here and surprised me with an 8 day visit! It was technically 9 days, since she got to my house the afternoon I was in Cedar Point! She had to wait 10 hours to see me. She just kind of twiddled her thumbs at my house while she waited, and I was oblivious to it all. Almost everyone I know knew about her visit except me. Go figure :p ;) ;D But when we got back home, I went into my friend Liza's camper to get my stuff to take a shower b/c her mom said my mom brought it down. I didn't see anything so I sat down, and the camper door opens, and Grace says, "Hey!" OMG. I almost fainted. I thought I was hallucinating at first b/c I was so dang tired and I was thinking about her all day since she said I had to call her when I got back. And the best part was is she recorded it all, including my magnificent jaw drop top the floor. It. Was. Awesome. :D :D :D :D :D :D We had an AMAZING time together, and we went to so many places. I'm already planning my trip out there next summer :) She left yesterday though, and I cried like a baby last night :p I had a full day after she left, so it didn't really occur to me late last night :p :p But we still exchange emails and have agreed to video chat every month. I know she follows my blog, so here's to you Grace! MWAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was a great big kiss, and a HUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you sweetie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :) :) :-* :-* :-* :-*

Summer :D

Yes, everything is wonderful! :D I am a littttlllle depressed though. A  bunch of my friends went to Franciscan University this weekend for the youth conference, and I couldn't go :P Not enough money, and I have this summer class. So I'm stuck at home...but I have a graduation party to go to today, and when my girlfriends get back home tomorrow, we're going to have a sleepover in my friend's pop-up ;D ;D :D So I'm extremely happy about that! And two words: Cedar Point. I am going with my friends on Wednesday for a full day of roller coaster fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We're leaving at 6 am from the church parking lot, and it'll take us like...3 or so hours to get to Ohio. If you've never been to Cedar Point, it's AMAZING! But only if you like roller coasters ;) I'm gonna go crazy, riding every single one if I can. Top Thrill Dragster: 120 mph, 17 second ride. Corkscrew: 7 loops. Millennium Force: A ride up to 310 feet in the air, then an 80 degree drop, starting the 93 mph ride. That's my favorite ;D Check it out of you don't believe me ;) Seriously, check this website out, then BEG your parents to take you there. All these rides and more!!!!!!!!!!!!! And check this out: it's the POV from a Millennium car. You won't be sorry you watched it. If you couldn't tell, this is my favorite ;D ;D I wish you all happy trails this week!

That was a great exhale :D Last week is over and done, which means I don't have to worry or think about that stupid ACT ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My summer class is going great, and the month is going by slowly. I am floating on a cloud. Everything is................aaaaaahhhhhhh........ :D :D :D Imagine you're on a beach. Bright sun, cold blue water lapping on the shore, seagulls crying, and you're laying on a hammock under a big, colorful umbrella. And don't forget a glass of lemonade and your favorite book ;) That's what life is like right now, and will be for the rest of the summer. So I am just plain happy right now :) :) And your quotes madams:

Memorial Day

Yup, and before you say anything, I have a very good excuse for not writing last week. Uh...actually I forgot and that doesn't help my case at all, but I had my dance recital last Saturday which was AMAZING as always ;D Every year I get better. I was in 7 dances in the first show and 8 in the second. Plus I had to guide my classes through their routines behind the curtain not to mention costume changes and making sure my makeup didn't smear :p I was sooooooooooooooo tired afterwards :p Gotta love that adrenaline rush though. It can make you go for several hours with nothing to eat ;D ;) Then you feel like crap :p And I got so bruised up and I have no idea how they got on my body. One minute they're not there and the next...they are. And they're still there :p But anywho, I am at Houghton Lake right now at my grandparent's cottage with some family and friends like every year, so we're going to eat junk food, swim, have campfires, drink wine( :D ), and have a merry old time. Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

P.S. - Since I'm not home, I don't have my quote book with me, so you're gonna have to go without one for a week ;) Sowwy!

I know, I know!

BLAH! Yeah :p I'm soooooooo sorry I didn't post again last week! I was gone all day on Friday and didn't have any energy to post at night when I got home from 3 hours of Frisbee. But I got through finals and it feels GREAT! :D :D :D I also went to the opera last week with friends of mine which was amazing ;D We dressed up in formals and took lots of pics ;D The opera was La Boheme, and it was a *sniff sniff* tragedy. Which was actually pretty much a comedy until the last 15 minutes ;) Then the people who manage the program fed us wonderful pizza, which we look forward to every year ;) And on Monday I started my baby-sitting job for the summer which has been going very well. So everything is going...perfectly right now :) I'm just so content! Oh, and I forgot to post these "tag" questions from one of my dear followers ;) I'll explain the rules and then I'll tag some peeps...

So.  Rules and Restrictions:
  1. It is imperative that these rules be plainly visible to all who can see and will see your blog. Therefore, post them at the top.
  2. Because random facts about people tend to captivate interest, post 11 personal and insignificant facts about yourself. 
  3. Answer your friend/acquaintance/fellow wanderer's 11 questions as well and as fully as you are able.
  4. Ask 11 more questions on hopefully philosophical orotherwise thoughtful subjects.
  5. Find 11 more  friends/acquaintances/fellow wanderers to tag--gently, please. 
  6. Go to their blogs and inform them of the happy fact that they are now Officially Tagged and Must Do Your Bidding.

1.  If you had a choice between spending a day in a mountain forest or at the seaside, which would you choose and why?
The seaside. I love the feel of the warm grainy sand beneath my feet. Along with the beautiful color of the water and bright sunshine, it's a day in paradise.
2.  How do you define true beauty?
As someone who is in love with God.
3.  What's the one thing that, without fail, will always touch your heart?
The way a man looks at a woman who he loves with his whole heart.
4.  What's the one thing that, without fail, will always make you want to scream and yell and generally have a fit?
When someone thinks a foreign language is a different one than it's suppose to be. Like my dad who asked me if 'adieu' was French or Spanish. I thought he was messing with me. But when I looked at him with a smile on my face, his was serious and he was actually looking for an answer *Rolls eyes*
5.  What is your opinion on parasols?
They'd be fun to carry around :D
6.  If an old guy in a pointy hat came to your door one fine morning and asked you to participate in an Adventure, what would you do?  Think about it, now!
Depends. I wouldn't go alone, and I would take my gun and a knife with me.
7.  Poetry: hate it or love it?  Why or why not? (I sound like a test, sheesh.)
I like it. It speaks of many things. And...I think other people who can write it are geniuses. I can't write poetry if my life depended on it :p
8.  Do you have any passages of literature memorized? Why did you choose to memorize it, if so? (Songs do not count.)
Uh... “Fourscore and seven years ago...” “...tale of Paul Revere...” “It is a truth universally acknowledged that any man who is wealthy is in need of a wife.” (Or something like that :p )
9.  What do you wish most to accomplish by blogging?
To inspire people and show them that life is meant to be fun :)
10. What do you base your like or dislike of a film on?
The way people act and the script. I don't really like hearing the f-word or watching porno scenes :p
11.  Do you believe in the cliche saying "follow your heart"?  Why or why not?
I suppose. I don't follow my heart though. I try my best to follow God's heart :)

Now my afraid ;)

    1. Have you ever been to a holy site in Europe?
    2. Do you think makeup decreases or increases beauty?
    3. Is it easier writing poetry or a book?
    4. Do you think the culture needs to be more dignified?
    5. Do you feel closer to God during the day or night and why?
    6. Is bike riding or running easier?
    7: What is your prince Charming like?
    8. Are you a night owl or early bird?
    9. Do you like jewelry or flowers from your imaginary knight? ;)
    10. Picasso: Genius or cookuu?
    11. Uh...JKF assassination. Conspiracy or not? (You don't have to answer that ;) ) 

  So the people I tag have to answer those last 11 questions on their blogs. And here are two quotes for you today:

"I wish you all the joy that you can wish." ~Shakespeare

"A beautiful thing is precious, no matter the price. Those who do not know how to see the precious things in life will never be happy." ~Beastly(the novel)

Happy trails! :)

Ugh, sorry people I forgot to tag! Okay...I'll just tag everyone. That's easiest ;) Answer the questions and put them on your blog!

Finals week and dance competition...

So...I had to get up at 6:20 this morning for a dance competition :p And I hate makeup. What I hate even more than makeup is stage makeup. I look like...a character from Night of the Living Dead. No joke :p Anywho it's a little after 10:30 and I had a full day. Dancing was fun ;D My parents watched the routines for the first time, and my mom said I was the most polished ;D And the most important(well, one of the most important to me), is that my kicks were straight up sky high ;D I've come to realize in the past few years that putting myself fully into a dance mood and the routine really pays off. I shouldn't be afraid of slipping or tripping, and I'm not. I've really grown as a dancer the past few years. But what's frustrating to me is some of the girls(and unfortunately the ones I had to dance with), only put so much into it. I don't think they care as much. Like they don't make an effort to come to practices unless pretty much forced. I think they try but it doesn't seem like it. So I feel like my talent that I've worked so hard to earn is being wasted and that's depressing for me. But I'm hoping I'll be able to fulfill my potential by joining the Baronettes ;) A lot of the routines were amazing, but watching 6-12 year olds and even teenagers thrusting, shaking, and gyrating is horrible to watch. Once again, no joke. Several times I thought I was at a strip club or watching pole dancers. Little girls as in 6 and 7 year olds were shaking while pumping was darn right scary. Another dance with 15-16 year olds involved folding chairs and fishnet stockings with 3 inch heels and body shots of things that should be kept either down or out of sight. Yup. The thing I think that bothered me the most was that there men in the audience watching these girls. I don't have a problem with that besides the fact that they were...well...watching that. Just because these girls are young doesn't mean they don't have bodies. And they're being trained to get attention the wrong way. With the older girls do they care they're mistreating their bodies and provoking wrong things? My dance teacher said to us one time, "Imagine if Jesus was in the audience. Would He be ashamed about what you're doing and how you're using your body?" To me, doing crotch shots and rubbing your hands down your body suggestively along with rolling and shaking your behind to the audience and moving the top along with the bottom is something I think Jesus would enjoy watching. And yet He did today. It just makes me mad and sad at the same time. I really needed to get all that off my chest :p It also makes me mad that if I ever was able to join a studio where the girls were serious I'd most like end up in a dance like that. Not to brag or anything, but I actually am as good as all those pole dancers today( :p), because I've used the studio to dance by myself before and it's like a replica of their moves just appropriate. But I would never wear fishnets or gyrate. It's wrong. I want to be able to do my tour jetes, center leaps, and that cool jump where your arms are above your head and your back is arched while your leg is bent backwards and almost touching your head while the other is pointed in front for the glory of God, not to shame Him. And I'm hoping and praying that's what the Baronettes do. Until then, I continue to do fishnet worthy jumps and leaps at my own studio and wow everyone in the process ;)

Finals are on Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE pray for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) And your quote:

"A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness." ~John Keats

Friday, April 20, 2012

Never fear, I'm always here :p

I know, I know! I'm back once again. And I actually have a very good explanation for not posting last week. I was at Franciscan University having a tour of the campus and drooling over everything ;) And by the time I got back in the car for the 6 hour drive home, I honestly didn't feel like posting anything ;) ::) But it was wonderful to say the least, and I got to meet a member of the fairy tale novel forum, Lady John! ;D ;D I also decided that when I'm there I'm going to stick to the vegetarian bar ;) No freshmen-actually-junior-15 for me! ;D And there's a dance studio on the top floor of Finnegan Fieldhouse so needless to say I died and went to heaven ;D If that wasn't enough, there's also a dance team which I am determined to join! ;) ;D ;D ;D

Finals are in 2 weeks! If you could keep me and all the other college students in your prayers we'd be grateful!

And 2 quotes today:

Happy Easter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, I know Easter doesn't start for another...*glances at clock*...eleven hours and 55 minutes, but it sounds so much better than happy Holy Saturday ;) I really sorry I never posted last week, but I was busy all day Friday and I never had a chance to come on the computer at all. Nothing important happened, just to let you know if you're wondering ;) Oh, scratch that. This certain man I know suffered and died for me two thousand years before I was born. To quote a certain song, "He saw my face and He cried." You know, it wasn't really until last year or maybe the year before I began to understand what He did for us. And it just came to me yesterday during service. One of the greatest desires of my heart is to fall in love with a man who will defend me and even die for me just because he loves me so much. You know how when you watch movies like Princess Bride or even old Disney movies like Beauty and the Beast, you get that fluttery feeling in your heart whenever the Prince declares his undying love and devotion? I almost laughed when I realized: we already have a Prince. We have a Hero who defended us against our sins and what would have happened to us, and He willingly gave up His life for His princesses, which is you and me :) And I wish, I really really really wish I could begin to understand how much He loves me. I think I feel a glimpse of it when my heart begins to pump double time in church as I listen to the priest's words, or when we go and kiss the cross which is what moves me to tears. I think back to a conference I went to at Franciscan University last summer. I try and remember the joy, peace, and love I felt and I can't really remember. I do, but only a little bit. I can't even remember what adoration was like. I know what I was doing, but it's almost like it was a different person controlling my body. But I'm not worried that I can't remember. I know that it was because of the intense love I felt that I can't remember. It's something that I'm keeping so tucked away in my heart and soul, it's not meant to come out except during Good Friday. And during the rest of the year, I still love Him, but...see, I can't even really explain it. And I hope you don't think I mean that only on Good Friday I love Him. Wrong. I love Him every day. No matter what comes. Nothing tragic has ever really happened to me, and I pray it doesn't, but I always try to remember, "You give and take away, You give and take away. My heart will choose to say 'Lord blessed be Your name.'" So I'm hoping that each of you will come to realize that He loves you with a passion you will never be able to imagine. And tomorrow in church(or tonight if you're going to Vigil), you will sing your heart out. I don't care if you're tone-deaf, and neither does He. He wants to hear your praises. I know that on Easter Sunday at church I might look like an idiot because I sing as loud as the choir. But I am so happy, just so darn happy He is risen. And I don't know about your parish, but we have lots of strangers come in for the "Twice a year" Mass. These people need to know and hear how much you love Jesus with a personal love by the sound of your voice raising to the rafters. Don't let them look around seeing you not singing because you're "too cool" like a lot of the other teenagers. They will be inspired by your ever constant smile and life in your eyes. Show them that we're alive because of Him. Show them Jesus is worth more than "Twice a year" Mass. Show them Jesus' love :)

And guess what? I'm going to Franciscan for a visit this Friday! :D I'll be getting a tour and I get to sit in on a literature and Theology class! I'm so excited I might need to change my pants ;D

Here's two quotes: "I am known by another name in your world. You must learn to know me by it." ~Aslan

Have a holy and happy Easter :)

"I could have danced all night..."

So...happy Friday! :D Tomorrow is picture day at my dance studio which is always a bucket of joy ::) I love rehearsal and recital, but picture day is just cramped and hurrying and did I mentioned cramped? ;) ::) :p I'm going to be at the studio for three hours tomorrow b/c I'm in 7 dances and I teach classes, so...yeah :p But also tomorrow I get to go to a royal all with some of my closest friends! I'm sooooooooo excited! ;D ;D ;D We get to wear pretty dresses and do our hair and all that jazz ;) We get a full dinner and learn how to waltz and get our picture taken. Last year was the Disney ball, and we had one guy for our group of seven girls :p So my friend Liza(who you might know as Chris Bond), took off one of her shoes and the guy knelt down and held it up to us girls as we all "fought" for it ;) Then this old guy with a fancy camera found us and started taking picture and picture. It was like paparazzi ;D ;D I'm not kidding you, this guy was snapping pics of us for five minutes straight. Our poor "date" was getting a sore knee ::) ;)  I'm hoping there'll be more guys at this dance and that they'll have the courage to ask us to dance ::) I only danced with my girlfriends last year b/c there wasn't enough guys and I wasn't asked :p But I'm hoping I'll be able to dance with a guy this year who knows how to dance. And it wouldn't hurt if he was attractive *wiggles eyebrows* ;) ;D ;D 

I think I stared posting my book on here, so here's the next bit: 

I knew I was going to do my report on Rapunzel. My life is like hers. Going through the same pattern, day after day until you feel like a broken record. And four pages? I had more to write when I was homeschooled in younger grades. My dad's choice for me to do my senior year in public school was okay. Kind of. We were nearing the end of the first trimester, and I already felt like I was doing eighth grade work again.
Walking through the halls I went past my friend's locker and left a small smiley face sticker on it. That's our tradition. I walk past his, I place one on. He walks past mine, he places on it. We're as thick as thieves. I've known Joseph for almost my whole life. We both decided to come to the high school for our last year together and face the demons head on.
And Joseph wasn't at all like any of the other empty headed jocks running around. He had the build of an athlete, because of swimming, but luckily not the brains of one. Smart as a whip, he was already in the top ten seniors category. I would never make it because of stupid math and useless Chemistry. I stink at both of them, so that's why I have Joseph tutoring me. Because of him, I got up to high B's. My pony-tail swished side to side happily as I continued on my way to practice.
Gymnastics has been my thing, other than school. Staying in shape and toned was a big part of my life, and I'm never going to loose it. I can thank my parents for being the health nuts they are. I pushed open the metal doors to the large practice area, and the usual smell of sweat and disinfectant made my nose have a field day. Going over to my spot on the bleachers, I stripped down to my leotard and double wrapped my pony-tail.
“Hey Lorelei,” my coach, Gina Frazier said, glancing up from her clipboard.
“Hi,” I greeted back, and went to stretch over on the mats. I smiled to several of the other girls on the team, then breathed in deeply to bend over. My muscles creaked, but then went into normal flexibility. After a good fifteen minutes our coach called us over to the mats at the other side of the gym.
“This week we will start working on our routines for Divisions. So all of you on the floor. Time to choreograph.” My feet lightly padded the floor as I took my place in the second row. “We will do a beginning two minute routine, then split into the normal groups.” Mrs. Frazier said. “Rosa, Maggie, Felicia, and Debbie, I want you to do two chaines into a stag jump then a diving somersault. Heidi, Lorelei, Bianca, Tracy, and Regina, I want you to to a back walkover with two chaines and an illusion. Patty, Natasha, Caroline, and Holly I want you to do a one hand cartwheel into a front walkover and a toe touch. On my count, go.” I let practice sweep me away, forgetting my worries.

And here is your quote:

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." ~Romeo and Juliet

Happy weekend! :)

Happy birthday Anna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, another birthday ;) My friend Anna is turning the big 16 tomorrow, and I'm going to her b-day party today. I just wanted to give her a big shout out because I love her a lot too! ;D ;D ;D

HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY ANNA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And guess what?! I met one of my favorite authors on Thursday night, Julie Lessman.She write the Daughters of Boston series and Winds of Change series which is a continuation of DoB. The books are historical romances, and trust me when I say right out that these are not the Amish books. They're filled with passion, longing, rivalry, adventure, secrets, and the reality of how much God loves us. So Julie spoke and signed all five of my books. My aunt and I also got our picture taken with her and we got to have an actual conversation with her for near ten minutes ;D ;D My head was soooooooooo in the clouds! ;D ;D She said I was adorable and sweet, and I had a heart full of God's love and He has great plans for me ;D I just stood there nodding and grinning like an idiot ::) ;) ;D ;D But here's the links to her books(in order), and go ahead and read the first chapters of the books. They're amazing! The O'Connor family has become my second family ;D I want to come down in the morning in the kitchn and tell them "good morning!" ;D

Okay, I'm going to start posting my story on here. It's a retelling of Rapunzel, and I haven't written in it since...January :p But here's the beginning:

A Ribbon in the Tower

Chapter One

Where should I start? The beginning of my day. The middle of my day. The end of my day. It's all one big blur, and no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to find a start and finish. Maybe I should focus more.....but when I focus too much on one thing, my mind wanders to another bigger one. Lord, keep me sane!, I thought, rubbing my fingers on my tired eyes. It was the last class of the day, the one I hated to love. Hated to love. Imagine a glorious forty five minutes dedicated to fairy tales and poetry, then comes in the timid, tired mouse.
Our teacher, miss Elinor Ash, had received her doctorate in English and British Literature from Oxford. From her high society name down to her proper demeanor, this woman was a left over from the eighteenth century. I felt bad for her, I suppose. Miss Ash seemed to love anything that had to do with literature, but why leave the mother country to come here to loud America, I wonder?
Was it that they had too many Miss Ash's in England? Or possibly she was enchanted by tales of the free land, where anything goes. Personally, I think the school board was so desperate to find a teacher who lived and breathed literature they looked all the way over the ocean. And that's where my dilemma comes in. I love this class. Essays on the tales every two weeks, then an essay on the next poem two weeks after that. Story, then poem. Story, then poem. I got A's in this class. But Miss Ash? I would get an F trying to figure her out.
Afternoon everyone. Please turn your books to 255.” Elinor Ash got straight to work. After I found the page number, I felt my body hum with anticipation. Rapunzel. One of my favorites of all time.
Since this is the last story of the trimester, we're going to be spending a little more time on it.” Miss Ash began. Some of the boys in the class found the page number, then groaned and slumped in their chairs.
Seriously?” One of them asked. “What are we supposed to learn from this? That the longer hair gets it becomes more infested with bugs?” Miss Ash looked down at her petite feet, then looked back up, her blue eyes strained. “No, Mr. Trent. We are going to learn the truth of independence and the reality of love. Lesson number one: love that tries to own you pushes you further. Love that gives space brings much more in.”
Huh. That had to be one of the most philosophical statements Miss Ash has ever made.
That is why I feel to get the most out of this class and all we have learned, you're last assignment will be to write a four page report on a fairy tale or poem of your choice.” Groans and disgusted sighs resounded throughout the room. I was the only one smiling. Writing? Loved it. Writing on a fairy tale of my choosing? I was in heaven.


Finally, here's your quote for today:

"In returning to Me and resting in Me, you shall be saved; in quietness and trust shall be your strength." ~Isaiah 30:15

Have a wonderful weekend and week ahead! :)

Happy birthday Grace!!!!!!!!!

As many of you may or may not know, today is my wonderful forum twin sister's birthday ;) So to make that a little easier sounding, Grace is one of my best friends in the whole wide world. The only problem is, she lives in VA which is like...14 hours from where I live, give or take a few hours :p But distance cannot keep us apart! We are constantly exchanging e-mails back and forth and sending pics of our crazy family to each other. And we are both members of the Fairy Tale Novel forum ;D We met online of all places in August of '09 in a Latin class. About a couple months into it, we asked each other for our email addresses and voila! History was made ;) My parents surprised me a year later in November of 2010 and sent me out to her house to stay for a week. That was a dream come true ;D ;D ;D We've webcamed a couple of times since then and we need to do it again ;) I'm really hoping I'll see her in person again soon. I'm going to Franciscan University next fall, so we're already making plans for me to take my Thanksgiving breaks at her house since it'll be closer compared to my house ;) ;D Anywho, I just wanted to give big shout out to her, because I love her soooooooooooo much and she's an amazing person!

HAPPY 18TH BIRTHDAY GRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D 

And last but not least, here is your quote for today:

"God gave us the gift of hope at our baptism. Our task is simply to accept the gift and incorporate it into our lives." ~Gina Loehr

I wish you all very happy weekend and week ahead! :)

Friday, March 2, 2012


It's finally March!!!!!!!! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel ;D And speaking of which, I just saw lightning outside our window. It's raining cats and dogs and I love it! And I just heard thunder! Hallelujah! :D :D :D All of this means spring and warm weather you know ;) And since I live in MI, once March hits, we rebel against the weather. We try our hardest to wear lighter clothes and coats, and try to make do with pockets instead of gloves. I had on a knee length denim skirt and a long sleeve purple shirt with lilacs on it today with purple clogs, and my sister said I look too springy. I told her it's March 2nd; I can look springy now ;) ;D ;D Anyway, I can't see who my followers are again, so would y'all kindly tell me who you are again? ;) Oh, and I think I did a review of a book called Waterfall awhile back and mentioned the next two books in the series Cascade and Torrent. The author just put out an e-novella of the 4th book. It's not as long as the other books, but it tells us what happens right after the end of the third. Such as men coming home from war, and a romance finally coming out of the shadows...but yeah, it's only an e-book, so I had to download the Kindle app to my computer to read it :p I'm old fashioned; I have to have a book in my hands. But unfortunately I couldn't for this, but it was fine reading it on the computer. And the app was free, so I only had to pay for the book which was .99. I'm happy ;D Anywho, here's your quote for today:

"You musn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." ~Inception

Happy weekend!

Short and sweet

Hey everyone! Sorry I didn't post yesterday but I was having my Wisdom teeth out :p But I have to say getting sedated is an adventure ::) I had a dream that the Knights of Camelot were standing around me, then Gwen came and woke me up who was really the nurse. It seemed to take me forever to wake up. She kept telling me to open my eyes and try to keep them open. Then I wanted to get up...all by myself. I swung my legs over the edge of the chair and tried to push myself up and she and my mom had to push me back down into the chair. My limbs felt like dead weights and I was dizzy and kind of out of it...Then I started to cry ::) She said it was normal because of the sedation and after another minute she and my mom were able to help me out to the car. Then I was drowsy until mid afternoon but after that I felt fine. Then I decided to take a shower and after that I got really tired :p And now my mouth is all sore. Luckily I don't have chipmunk cheeks; just a little swelling :p But here is your quote and then I am signing out for today.

"The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all." ~Mulan

Can't really think of a title :p

Happy Friday y'all! :) Sorry I didn't post on Monday. I thought I'd do my quotes on Fridays now since they're more laid back than Mondays.

So I had my first exams for World Civ and History this week. And I'm pretty sure I aced both of them ;D I memorized all the stuff I needed to and was able to keep my cool and not stress out about it. History took almost two hours to complete though :p Part of it was a short answer and long answer question. My short answer was a little more than a page long and my long answer was two pages long :p I'm hoping that was okay...but it was supposed to be a long answer, right? ;)

Tomorrow I'm going with my friends to a musical/concert type...thing. They compete with their instruments...I think. Shows how much I know about it ::) ;) It's called Solo and Ensemble or S&E. I finally get to go this year, so I'm really excited to see them do their thing! ;) Then on Sunday I get to go to a prom dress resale and  a party with the same friends afterwards, so I'm really looking forward to that ;D Oh, and along with the Once Upon A Time episode that night ;) Here's your quote:

"Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." ~Jesus

Have a veddy good weekend peeps! :)

6 more weeks...

So did any of you see what the groundhog decided? I didn't :p ;) But all I know is we still pretty much have six more weeks of winter whether or not the groundhog says ;) But where I am, it's gorgeous and there's no snow in sight which makes me more happy than words can say. We're usually pretty heavy with the snow in February in MI, but we've only had 2 dumps this winter which is AMAZING! I usually don't like winter, but I love this year 'cause there's no snow!!!!!!!!! ;D And my followers tab is back up, so I'm happy ;D

This weekend I was at my aunt's house for our annual movie weekend. My mom, sister, aunt, and two other cousins go to to my one aunt's house to have movies, food, and gift bags. This year's theme was tropical, so she had decorations up all over in the living room/kitchen, and we had gift bags stuffed with trinkets and fun things ;D ;D We watched Soul Surfer, Nim's Island, and Surf's Up. Surf's Up was incredible. I hadn't seen it, but I knew the whole story from reading it several years ago. Everything about it. The acting. The lines. It was so well done. And the shark scene was so good. It was so real. Like if that happened to my friends, I honestly don't know if I would have done what those kids did. They saved that girl's life. Getting her out of the water and tying off her arm then getting her back to the car and meeting the ambulance on the way there. What was even more amazing is the girl started praying to Jesus to save her and help her as her friends are pulling her out of the ocean. That's huge. And what would I have done if I was that girl? Seriously. *Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen it* If I had just gotten my arm bitten off by a shark? Ohmygosh. Ow on a ton of different levels. But would you even feel the pain b/c of so much blood loss? Or would it be shock? Would I have just laid there on my board letting my friends help me out of the ocean with blood just coming out of my arm, not to mention to have one anymore, then calmly say "I want my mom" while they tie my shoulder off and lay me on a different board to cart me to their truck then race down the highway? I honestly don't know if I would be that calm. The only way I might be calm is from the shock and blood loss :p It's an amazing story and the movie is so cool. If you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend you do.

Here's your quote: "Oh man, learn to dance, or else the angels in heaven will not know what to do with you." ~St. Augustine

Have a good week :)

I think someone pressed the 'snooze' button on my life...

Okay, I know what you're all thinking: I deserted you. Not true! I only disappeared for a little bit so you could learn to fully appreciate me :p ;) That wasn't true either. It was mainly b/c A) I forgot to post B) ...I forgot to post :p But you will be happy to know I now have a full driver's license so I can go driving wherever and whenever I want ALONE. ;D Except for the hours b/w 10 pm and 5 am unless it's going to a school function or authorized function :p ;) But I plan on being asleep during those hours, so no problems there ;)

But school is soooooooooo uneventful this semester. I think I already complained about this :p So I've been looking for a job on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 3 to 9. Tell me who doesn't want a teenager to work for them those days and times. Apparently no one in our town :p But I have a light at the end of the tunnel. Our DRE at church said that I can volunteer with two of the youth groups and do little things at church on the side. So I'm going to help out the girl who runs the middle school and junior high school youth groups while possibly working in the library ;D ;D I am so happy right now. I'm at the point of desperation where I want to shake people's shoulders and say, "GIVE ME SOMETHING TO DO BECAUSE MY LAME TEACHER WON'T GIVE ME ANYTHING TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" :p :p :p :p :p On the days I have Algebra hw or no classes, I have 3 hours of school to do at the most. You can see my dilemma :p But like I said, light at the end of the tunnel ;)

And you get three quotes. One for last week, two 'cause I didn't post the day after Monday, and one for today which is Monday ;)

"So let me go like a leaf upon the water. Let me brave the wild currents flowing to the sea. And I will disappear into a deeper beauty." ~Audrey Assad

"Perfection has a price. But I cannot afford to live that life. It always ends the same, a fight I never win." ~JJ Heller

"Happiness is a mystery like religion, and should never be rationalized." G.K. Chesterton

I also want to thank you all for following my wonderful life ;) ;D Oh, and could you followers comment so I know how many I have of you? My followers tab isn't working and it's driving me nuts not knowing who's following me :p ;)

Life is...normal

Another week! And I had school off today since it's MLK, so that was nice ;) This morning I went with my friend Chrissy and some local youth groups to help sort out stuff at the new St. Vincent de Paul store. Then we went out to eat and went bowling ;D I bowled horribly :p ::) But now I'm home and I have tumbling so I'm happy about that ;D And here's your quote!

"Literature is a luxury. Fiction is a necessity." ~G.K. Chesterton

Can I get a big "Amen and alleluia!" to that? ;) ;D ;D What would we do without books and everything that allows us to travel without moving from one spot but does allow us to travel? I have no idea! So here's to books; one of the greatest loves of my life ;D

Monday, January 9, 2012

Back to school

Well, I started college life back up again today. My Algebra class is at 8:10 :p So I have to be on the bus by 7:45...*sigh*...and then my World Civ and History classes are pretty much lame :p No essays, no papers. Only two exams and the final. We were told we didn't have to read the book if we wanted. Needless to say my eyes practically popped out of my head. So as an example of how easy it is, I'll sleep in tomorrow, give myself two hours to finish up Algebra hw, then read my other books for an hour each equaling two hours. So all in all, four hours at the most. My dad said if I wanted I could add another class, and I might. Even with another class that would give me a regular time frame for school. I'll have to find out ::)

So here is your quote: "The poetry of the earth is never dead." ~John Keats
All we have to do is listen to that poetry :) Have a good week!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D

5...4...3...2...1...HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2012!!!!!!!!! I stayed up watching Beauty and the Beast until 11:45 and read until 11:59. Then I watched the ball drop and thanked God for everything I had during the year. Then the confetti exploded and it was pwetty ;D ;D But I hope that your new year brings happiness and joy :) My new year's resolution is to grow closer to the God of the universe, and I'm interested to see what yours are. No pressure ;)

I got my hair cut today! I am sooo excited. I finally got it re-layered and got a good four inches taken off. It looks so much better ;D Dance also started again today and I'm happy about that also ;D So all in all everything is still going great!

And here are your two quotes since it's almost Wednesday ;)

"I adjure you daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles and hinds of the field, do not arouse, do not stir up love before its own time." ~Songs 2:7 And tell me about it, I'm having some trouble with that ::)

"You know what I figured out today? Maybe God has a bigger plan for me than I had for myself. Like this journey never ends..." ~Jamie - A Walk To Remember

Have a good rest of the week! :)
