oh goodness.

I finally visited the school library. I'm way proud of myself. It took a lot of courage to go in there, alone. Gladly, one of my guy friends, Noah, was in there. I got all of my homework done, and it was comfortable.

I had a band concert tonight. It was the first time I had not worn pantyhose too. It was wonderful. I also got to wear dress pants insted of a skirt. Isn't that exciting?!

As a lot of you know, my birthday was on Monday. I ate Chinese food, went to school, had a lot of people sing happy birthday too me, and am most likely going out with my Grandma to do yoga on Saturday. I promise I will do my best to take pictures. I'm pretty sure that it's going to be really funny.

My friend got an iPhone, way cool.

My other friend blogged on our conjoined book blog, which then always makes me feel like I have to blog again on here so that it will show up first on my dashboard. So this is my kind of lame post to make mine go back to the top.

I'm lovin' the new Pink song (without the bad words). I would look it up, but make sure you find the radio version. Also, the new Hillsong United album is GOOD STUFF. People, you really should go get it.

I'm still really enjoying my new school.

You need to watch Hawaii Five-O. It's a tv show on at 10 on Mondays. It's sooooo good. One of my all time favorites.

How's like going for you? Any new books, music, or movies?
Ta ta for now!

p.s. All those responses on my last post were OUTSTANDING!!! I was blown away. Thanks so much you guys!

"if we are the body..."

She snuck into the back row, late, as usual.

“Look what she wearing today, a mini skirt and a shirt with no sleeves.” I heard the girls beside me whisper.

“Look those two.” My friend beside me leaned over to me during the middle of the song. “He’s practically got his hand on her butt.”

I nodded, trying to get my friend to talk later. I hated being the loud ones during youth group. We always got weird looks because my friends and I were the “goody two shoes” of the group.

The worship went on. The lovely words washed over me. Such a relief to be accepted here.

“Look at her.”

“Look at that outfit.”

“I don’t think they’re even paying attention.”

“You would think they’re one person with how close they’re sitting.”

My friends and I talked back and forth in between the song switch.

Soon the worship and message ended, and everyone started exiting the room. I saw one of our leaders walk up to the girl and welcome her and the boyfriend. We all rushed passed her without a second glance to even look back and talk to our old friend.


“It's crowded in worship today
As she slips in trying to fade into the faces
The girls teasing laughter is
carrying farther than they know
Farther than they know

But if we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching?
Why aren't His hands healing?
Why aren't His words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is a way?
There is a way”
Just a reminder today. Don’t forget to love.

things i kind of really like

Watching America's Funnies Home videos. Aren't they just wonderful?

Post titles. Mostly the one's without any format or caps, and the ones with thoughtful names.

Panera Bread. Ohmygoodness. Please tell me someone else has had the splendid cinnamon crunch bagel with hazelnut cream cheese? It's a must have. Please go get one. Now. Really.

History. My teacher is great. Really, he's spectacular. It's not that he's really funny, or something that just makes you like him without the teaching; it's that he's thorough and I learn a lot. 

Youth group. This one's pretty much self explanatory. Especially if you're in my group, then you really understand. Great things are happening there. Including nine square!

Homework. (just kidding about this one.)

Passion Conferences. Look it up. They're so outstanding. I really want to go to one when I am 18.

You!  Love you, my followers. Happy belated Valentine's Day!

To "My Man" (and others who relate.)

Dear the guy I will marry (eventually),
Please do not propose to me at a place where I can't set my elbows on the table. I do know places like that have good food and all, but really, I would much prefer a place with lots of bright colors and creativity. Oooooo, and please have Chinese food included somehow. Maybe coloring books too, or a trampoline while it's night time. Pictures are a must, and fun shall be included. I do love water, waves and pretty sunsets. Fuzzy or knee high socks, gummy bears, pajamas, guitars, movies, and singing, all make me smile from ear to ear. I hope these are helpful pointers for you. One more thing, I don't want the typical "fortune cookie engagement". Please, I know that if you and I are getting engaged, I'm sure that you will understand this by now. I have a quirky personality, but I'm sure that we'll laugh often about it.
Well, that's about it. I'm glad we talked about this. (Or I just talked about it.)

p.s. No worries, I'm no where close to this. I just kind of was laughing as I thought about it and decided to write it down, then post it.

An update on, well everything.

Well, I'm here. Posting finally. I've been that kind of un-busy where you avoid your computer for a long time and do all sorts of other things. Which may include.

Painting a bookshelf. It's rather dandy. I'm painting all of the panels a different picture. The very top one right now it a pretty sun/tree sponge paint picture. The outer side has a parrot on it. Other then that the rest of the book shelf is still white.

Playing in the crazy amounts of snow and ice. I'm still not sure how much snow we ended up getting. (Not to mention it's a snow day for me and it's STILL snowing. It's rather pretty snow though. It's sparkling in the sunlight.) But I know that we got lots and lots of ice. Which then made it fun to go over to Katie and Anna's house and go sledding for a few hours. Thanks guys!

Having two extra brothers for a week. Our friends Alex and Collin came over while we had our enormous amount of snow days. Alex and I have been friends since I was pretty much born, and I know Collin from my old church/school. (By the way they're brothers if you didn't pick up on that). Alex and I had our share of fun by making Spaghetti and Waffles. Yes, together. If you guys have never read the book Guys are Waffles and Girls are Spaghetti by Chad Eastham I totally recommend it. Great book! I'll post pictures of the epic event in a later post because I haven't gotten them on my computer yet.

Kelsey passed away on Wednesday at 5:17. Thank you guys for all the prayers. She is finally healed now. It's what she wanted. Even if the cells took, it would have never healed her completely. But now, she is. I think shes happy to see God, even though it sometimes isn't easy without her. It's what she would have wanted. Keep praying for Karly though. She has to go through the same thing sometime. The memorial service is on Saturday. If you would like to go, it's open to anyone. Just let me know and I will give you more info. (Keep in mind that it is in Indiana.)

Giveaway from the Daybook! I would totally LOVE to win this. You should enter too! Go here.

Kazakhstan is coming! As some of you know, my brother and I are planning on taking a trip to go there this summer. There's a link on my sidebar (or will be soon) where if you would like you can donate. More importantly though, if you guys could pray for us in raising support, and getting to know our team better, it would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thats all for now!
