A giant mess of clay

it's a beautiful day! that's all i have to say about that

Last night was a lot of fun!i went with Jay to the musical at Trinity. They did such an awesome job!

You'll never guess what I did today! During advocacy at school I went to pottery class (i'm not even in pottery & i've never done it before in my life). My friend Josh was teaching me how to make a pot, which then turned into a bowl, which then turned into a big mess of clay. It was a lot of fun to get messy, but I am not that kind of an artist.

Well I have work tonight - blah. It's going to be busy, i just know it because of the good weather today and it being a friday night before the weekend. I hope it goes by quickly! i have a list of things i want to get done tomorrow :) Let's hope i get that far!

I love it that I have two classes where I'm on computers the entire time. It makes it really easy for me to write new posts on here. Thank you Heights!

We're supposed to get more little snow flurries tonight and tomorrow - LAME. I can't seem to stress enough how ready i am for warm and sunny weather. The other day, I actually thought that if i painted my nails hot pink, it would feel more like spring/summer. Unfortunately the pink shade of nail polish i found was dried up, so i couldn't use it.

Tonight i'm going to see OKLAHOMA, Trinity Academy's musical. I have friends that are in it and i absolutely love this show, so i'm excited to go and watch them in it. I still crack up whenever the characters randomnly burst into song though. That's something my mom will ALWAYS laugh at....which in turn makes me laugh even more :D

Blue Skies

It looks absolutely beautiful outside! I don't know what it is, but there's something about the weather that affects my personality. Maybe it's the fact that for the past few months, it's been freakishly cold outside with grey clouds that fill up the entire sky. But when the sun is shining and the sky is a gorgeous blue, everything that's going on in my life that dissappoints me, it suddenly doesn't matter! For cryin out loud, the sky is BLUE - I have nothing to complain about!

I was up til about midnight last night, trying to have a hardcore study session because of those tests. Turns out I only had one...and I have time to study for it too! Why I stress myself out about these things, I have no idea.

Top Secret Pow Wows

Words cannot explain how tired i am right now. I got to come home early, but i've been doing homework ever since. It's getting ridiculous! I have two tests tomorrow that i NEED to study for, and i have zero time to do it. This just in - life is not fair.

oh AND i can't even study hardcore tonight, because i have to work. I work at Cold Stone Creamery (ice cream) and while i could be at home studying my butt off to get A's, i have to go to work where we make fat people fatter!!....ugh...more fat.

I think that Senior year, we shouldn't have homework at all. And if we MUST have tests, then they shouldn't give them on the same day as everyone other teacher. It's like they all get together and have top secret pow wows to figure out how they can make their sudent's lives completely miserable. They use our number one hatred against us - schoolwork. the nerve...

Just a thought

For the record, I would love to get a little baby Koala bear for Christmast!! They are so adorable

Pretty Picture?

The above photo is one of my senior pictures. I was racking my brain last night trying to come up with a cute color pallette for my blog to make it look awesome. I had wanted to put up some kind of picture that reflected me in some way, and i saw that photo in my files. I was trying something out when i put it up there, but i thought it looked really cool with the bright yellow flowers. I'm wondering if it makes me look a little concieted, because that's the very last thing i want. If you think it makes me look vain, then by all means tell me! And i'll fix it immediately. BTW: Laura Rhoades Photography took those pictures and she did SUCH an amazing job!!

i'm in my YEK class again - feeling a bit like crap. My nose is runny, i'm coughing, i have the worst most horrible cramps in the history of cramps,and it's snowing AGAIN.

I don't know what it is about Kansas weather, but i am sick and tired of it. I look forward to winter for Christmas, but once december is over, it's just time to be done with it. Spring, feel free to come STAT!

What a weekend!

Sorry i did make a new update for a few days. I've been working a lot more at nights, so between that and homework I've been a busy gal!

It was great to see my sister again! Her audiions at Friends went well and she'll hear back from them in a few weeks. I hope she can get some good scholarship money from them. That would certainly be helpful. :) but i'll see her again in a few weeks. We're both going on the sring retreat with the youth group from church to Westminster Woods. Good memories from that place...

Today I finally got baptized! Me and my sister Jessica decided to do it together. i actually woke up sick and had to fight to get out of bed in order to actually go to church. But i made it and now i'm pooped. I mean,when you're sick the last thing you want to do is go anywhere or even do homework for that matter! Lucky me - i had to do both...but I skipped out on Wichita Wind Ensemble rehearsal today, which helped. It gave me to time to just relax for a bit. Well I'm off to go and finsh some more homework!

more about me...

Just to clarify the title on my account..."I am not my own" to me, means that my life belongs to Christ - not me. If you didn't know me you'd probably think that i meant that my life sucked, my parents control me...or you know, something totally ridiculous like that. When in reality, it's just the opposite! I have a great family, a great life, an even greater God and I am completely satisfied with myself and who i am.

and that was just a snapshot! Buti can't go into more details.I have to go and pick up my younger sister from school and then it's onward to a wisdom teeth consultation :/ not sure how I feel about that....

Take Two

Ok- so this is the second blog I've created. My first epically failed! I'm determined to actually log-in to this one and update as often as I can.

Right now I'm at school and am supposed to be working on something for my YEK (Youth Entreprenuers of Kansas) class. It's not due for another few days, so I have some time. During days like this, I like to take my ipod to school and listen to it in class. Me being me, forgot to grab my headphones.....again. I can remember the ipod, but i forget the headphones!

So excited! My sister, K├Ąte, is coming back home from K-state tonight. She's transferring to Friends University next fall and is auditioning for band/choir this weekend. So my dad's going up and getting her after he gets off work. He asked me to come with, but I'm not sure I can. I have piano lessons and homework junk to finish up. Next time though!......on second thought....they'll be eating dinner in Aagyville. Free dinner...or homework??
