I have been waiting for something amazing for awhile. I don't know exactly what I want, I just want something really really fun to happen, or to make a new friend, or I don't know..just something amazing I guess. Life has been great, I I don't know where I'm headed with this. Maybe I just need to get out of Kennewick for a bit....whatever. Back to homework.

Thanksgiving was great though! I actually did have a good day. Me and Marcus played Ultimate Darts, Eat great food, watched WallE, and went hot tubing.

And..less than a month until Christmas..which means less than a month until I get to talk to Ken!!!

United We Win

So I used to think that English was "my thing" and that it was the best subject ever...but now..I am in love with History! I have been studying from the civil wars to now this quarter..and it makes me appreciate veterans so much!! It is amazing how brave those soldiers in both WWI and WWII were. I mean, I was always thankful for them..but now that Ive learned more and watched some documentaries...I have gotten a better grasp at how they must have felt and what they were going up against. I just want to go up to every old man now and give them a hug and say thanks! It also makes me proud to live in the U.S. With the elections and the economy it kind of seems like America sucks..but if you think about it...even when we are at our worst...we still have it so much better than so many people..and even though I think McCain could do a better job than Obama...he is still our pres so we need to give him a chance. Anywhoo...Im off to do homework...And learn more about America. =]

One Tuesday Morning

So I read this book, One Tuesday Morning, it was amazing. I cried my eyes out by the end of it..I never really understood how big the 9/11 attacks were, and how many people died. It really made me proud to live in America, and really appreciate the fire fighters. The only thing that could have made it better is if I didnt have to do a Book Report on it.

Also, Ive been really involved in this whole Breast Cancer Awarness Month thing. Its been fun. Me and my friend Macie made bracelets, and those alone have raised 300$ in three that is cool. The pic is of our human chain of people from SHS to KaHS!!

But other than that life is normal. School..leadership..xc....HW...naps....and districts tomorrow!!
Hopefully I will be able to tell you how great that went later! =]

I like this song...when I was like 12 I hated it because I thought it meant we were supposed to dance instead of working or something, I dont know. But now that Ive actually figured it out (Im really not blond, i swear) I really like it.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

I have been having so much fun lately, and getting a lot done...but I still feel like there is something missing. I dont know what really, maybe I just had too much fun during the summer, or maybe its the fact that I miss Ken more than ever. Honestly, it has been 8 months since I have talked to him...for real. It really makes me feel bad for anyone who has ever had someone really close to them die, like a brother, or husband or something, becuase I honestly dont know how they do it! 2 years is such a long time..a lifetime would kill me! Thank goodness for emails though..although I use a lot of snail mail with him. Anyways...running has been going good..practices are fun. I kinda miss my weekends, but General Conference is this Sunday, And Im super excited, for the first time in my life. Anywhoo...Just thought I would get that out. goodnight.

Time flies by so fast!! honest to has a week gone by since last time I wrote on here..Im really really this is short. But I heard from Ken today. He is the greatest. Had a great run...helped with leadership. Started CBC this week. Thats going good. And homecoming is this weekend...that should be fun. Im sure I'll write about that sooner or later.

Wednesday, September 17, 2008


I am talking to Ken over email right now!! Im so happy!!! We just happened to get on at the same time!! Im so excited!!! I cant wait for the Christmas phone call! anyways..I have lots to do. For the first time this week I had some free time...I watched Parent Trap. I love that movie. I also downloaded my pictures from last months photo shoot with some friends. but ya.."heck to the is good" -Ken.

School...Ken...and Life

It is really weird not to have free time 24/7 like I did in the summer..and I kind of miss it...although I still have fun..a lot. I have Cross Country..and fun people in most of my classes. Although Im still waiting for running start to start. I got my books today!!

Also Ken wrote today. I miss that kid. On Days like today...I wish he could knock some sense into me..hes really good at that.

Im really thankful I was born into the family I was born into...and that I live near my cousin and grandparents. I really like the song by Switchfoot, "This is your life" right now because when it asks "are you who you want to be??"I can honestly answer yes...and I am happy about this life...and about who my friends are. Life is good.

Silverwood and Biking

This weekend I got to go to Silverwood with some great friends..and go on a bike trip with my family. Both were really fun. Silverwood was really crowded..but we still got to ride the new ride "Aftershock" was great. I love my xc friends. The camping trip was great too..I went 40 miles or was all really pretty and very relaxing. We were able to jump in the river afterwards too...But now Im home...and am waiting for something to do.

Priest Lake '08

I cant believe that another year of Priest Lake is over! When I think about seems like last years vaca was just a few months ago. This years was much better though!! The weather was much more enjoyable, and I got to go tubing everyday, and I went slalom skiing twice. I had a good week with my family. I needed it so much...I love hanging out with my friends..but a family week is nice. I got to catch up with my reading, and spend time with my adorable nieces and nephews. I also got to run in the beautiful mountains and go on a long walk with my sisters. Also celebrated my 17th birthday! The dutch oven fun fetti cake with fun fetti icing was very delish! Overall it was a great week!...Now time for the Trek..then Silverwood, then Jack Johnson!!...I love summer time.

XC Camp

I got back from Cross County Camp on Thursday. It was a very good four days of running. Its amazing what the human body is capable of doing. I was able to run so much and because I was around people who all love to run, it was very easy and enjoyable. Montana is so pretty too! On a run called Trail 544, I ran up to a part of a Mountain to where I could see forever. It was beautiful! I wish there were places like that to run here...and not just the roads. But I have to say, as fun as XC camp was, I am excited to be back home with my friends and family...but I leave for EFY in Tacoma on home will be short lived....I love summer.

Schools Out for the Summer!

Yesterday was a great last day of school!! Me and my friend left early becuase we had our final done in the first 5 min. (we just turned in a project that we had done earlier) We went to the spiny park for a bit, then we went to Wal-Mart to buy toilet paper, then we T-Pd by friend Rachels house.."in the broad daylight!" It was fun. Then I went and water ballooned middle schoolers as they were leaving school. We just drove around and pelted was funny! Then we went swimming, took a break and played Basketball, and swam after that for an even longer time. Then we played volleyball, then I went to a BBQ, then to my friend Kates going away party. Im very sad...she left to go back to Russia this morning. We took some pictures, and went swimming again. To finish the night I spent the night at Macies and we fell asleep to The Holliday. I was going to run this morning, but yesterday, when we were playing bball I think the combonation of the heat and me playing with no shoes gave me this huge nasy blister on the very bottom of my foot. Its pretty gross looking. But today is the first official day of summer 08 and soon Im going off to go play Dodgeball. Im so excited that summer is FINALLY here!!!

Twins, Mom and Messy Rooms

So this weekend I babysat these 6 year old twins while there mom was having a baby. I didn't care doing it for free..I understand completely, but I would have liked a thank you. And plus I was feeling really selfish and I wanted to have fun last night instead of watch the stupid Incredibles and listening to "Gina lets do this....lets do this...lets do this." I cant even tell them apart!! I really just realized how much more I like taking care of kids I really care my nieces and nephews...who are back in Seattle...which is very sad becuase I really like having them here. Even though sometimes I would get annoyed by the stupidest when I was trying to study for my math final, Abby kept telling me to come dance with her..and I really wanted to, I just got annoyed that things are so carefree for her..while I was studying. But I guess being a 4 year old would get boring after its good that we grow up. Anyways...onto Mom. She cracks me up. As I was cleaning out my room she would look at every piece of clothing that I put in the "give to goodwill" if I had made a mistake in putting it in there...but I know I will actually grow up to be like some ways. That leads me to my messy room. I have been cleaning it since 10 this morning...and Im only 1/2 done. I really dont want to do it anymore...which is why I am writing this. But its been a good weekend so far..I got to go to Silverwood randomly with a friend on Thu...scrap booked on Fri, and tonight Im gonna blade it up. and also only one more monday of school..and then SCHOOLS OUT FOR THE SUMMER!!!

Tuesday, June 10, 2008


Yesterday Rachel and Jeanie came over to hang out...and we ended up reading my old journals from middle school. Goodness those are good for some laughs. I cant believe how much has changed!! " was the best day ever! Micah said hi to me!!" That and all the "I heart S.O.S." Why does middle school have to be such an awkward stage?? I looked back at my yearbook too...since when is "someday you will be a lesbian model" an actual funny thing to write on a yearbook?! But I thought I was pretty thats all that matters I guess...I mean, I did have relationships that lasted for what?? One day...maybe a whole week!!?? Only heaven knows how I had friends back then! =] But I am sure I will be able to look back at things I have done in High School too...heck...I already do. I just thought I would write that though...just so you could know that I am slowly growing up....I cant wait till my clothes are used for future dress ups!!

An Unexpected Weekend

This weekend went nothing like planned. I was planning on getting a lot of homework done...temporarily dyeing my hair with purple streaks (just for fun) on my projects, move my stuff from down downstairs to upstairs...and clean my Papas house...but unfortunately, my brother and law got in a very bad dirt bike accident, so him and my sister went up to a hospital in Seattle, leaving their four amazing kids with us. I spent almost all day with them yesterday, and I had a blast! We colored for a very long time, did a craft, played dress up, and took pictures. I even got to have a little sleep over with them! =] And this morning we all went to church together. I now have a little preview of what Kareen went through when she was the oldest and had lots of little siblings at church(even though I know her kids are way easier to take care of than any of us)..I've never really experienced having lots of little siblings, so it was really fun! Goodness, they are so cute!! Nate all dressed up and "reverent", Abby in her beautiful braid grandma did, and Claire all snuggled up sleeping on my lap during Young Womens. I even got to take Claire to nursery..and when Papa tried to take her away from me, she started crying!! =] And now I think I might paint their toenails or something while the boys are playing downstairs. However, even though this weekend has been great for me, I'm really sad that it came about how it did, with Jeff getting hurt and all. I really can't believe it happened, and I really hope he gets better quickly because these kids need their mommy and daddy safe.

Not so good at Math

I was just studying for my math test tomorrow..when, for the one millionth time I realized that I really don't like math. Some people say that it is fun, like a puzzle or something, or they like it because there is only one answer. Well, who only wants to be able to have one answer be right?! That means if you don't get that one answer, you get it wrong, and your grade, like mine, is screwed! And also it takes forever to study for...and once I get to the test, my mind totally blanks, so its like I spent hours studying for nothing! But no that I am done venting about math, I will go study some more. And also, if I really wanted to do a puzzle, I wouldn't do math, I would actually do a puzzle. Who would have though.

I don't think I can wait any longer for school to get out. I am so ready for days to be full of fun!! I am so excited to be able to jump on the tramp with water under it for hours, to go blading, to go to camps, to run with cross country, hang out with my friends, and redecorate my room. I am really sad that lots of my senior friends will no longer be at school with me though. Sharlee, Rachel, Blaine, Mallissa, Stephen, Todd, Stephani, Kensie, and Kate. We still have the summer I will have to hang out with them a lot. I decided that I couldnt ask for better friends. We have so much fun together, and I never feel pressured to do anything bad. But back to summer..I really cant wait..I guess I should get back to my English project that I have spent all day on. =]

My Weekend

This weekend was great! It started out with decorating shirts for Battle Of the Bands. Macie, Kaitlyn, Lauren and I spent some time in Kaitlyns garage making nifty shirts supporting our friends band called "Rheem". The actual battle of the bands was with Mr. Southridge..and it was very fun. After the "concert/competition" me and the rest of the groupies (haha) went and had a mini bonfire. I would have to say that just making the shirts,dressing up crazy, and painting our legs was the best part. On Saturday I woke up to Hutnanies. Those things are delish. I made a schedule with the times I planned to complete each activity at...but Lo and Behold..I think I only got half of them done. I did get to run, and bike, and watch my little brothers baseball game though. I also made my friend Sharlee a UNICORN CROSSING street sign..with my moms help. It turned out great! At the party we did all the things that Unicorns do. We roller bladed all over town (3 miles covered prob) eat dessert/fruit pizza, and had a dance party in SPANDEX! It was a good night..even if I did get some MAJOR blisties...that I popped this morning. The water inside them squirted out quite nicely if I do say so myself. =](If you click on the can see it all blown up)
And this morning I went to church. I colored a page out of an Arthur coloring book. I know the whole Arthur theme song by the way...we sang it a few times while blading. =] Actual church was good. In Young Womens we had a lesson on missions. I had already seriously considered going on one...and now I want to even more. I think somewhere really pretty in the states would be Rhode Island or something. Now I have lots of homework to do, a violin performance to watch, and seminary gradeeation to go watch. Its been a very good weekend. =]

Why..O Why Did God Create Centipedes

I HATE CENTIPEDES!!!! I was just cleaning my room..I was trying to get things done and be productive by cleaning my stinking room when I got tired of cleaning, sat down on my bed, and looked up to find a centipede!! I quickly ran to my bathroom to get the bug spray (I keep it close to be at all times) and sqirted away..but then it fell to the floor, and I kept skwirting it...and at the same time I felt a drop on my shoulder, and even though it was just the bugspray dripping from the ceiling, my first thought was that it was another centipede. I screamed real loud..and then started crying just a little bit. I hate them..and I am seriously considering moving back up to the MUCH smaller room upstairs so I don't have to deal with them!! here is a little picture that I almost vomit at when I look at it.....becuase this is exactly what they look like. By the way..the name I saved this picture under is I HATE YOU! I hope that he gets the memo. (I deleted it right after so I wouldn't have to look at it every time I opened "My pictures".

Time Waster

Today I was looking at my sister kareens Blog, and decided that I could really have fun on here! I love writing in my journal, and since this is like a public journal, I thought I could use one. I will start out by telling you about my dream last night. I wont go into great detail, because everyone knows that gets old real quick. I dreamed that my brother Ken got sent home from his mission because he went to bed 30 min. earlier than he was allowed. (Why that I don't know =])He was crying because he didn't want to be home, and even though he was back, which would in real life seems like it would be a great thing, I felt really sad for him.

I guess that just showed to me how much I miss Ken becuase I have had several dreams about him, but I also realize that he is out there having a great time. And two years goes by whatev!
