Tomorrow night is Graduation and I am PSHYCED!!! I get to dress up in a pretty dress and get my hair done and wear heels and everything. We're having a dinner and a dance and we're going to have a BLAST!!!
I know I will be ALOT better once I get my speech over with, though. I have to say a speech, as I'm valedictorian. AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! Tie me down, I may run out of the building. Or barf. Or, worst of all, cry. At least I get to share this misery with my co-valedictorian, Andy. Hopefully he will catch me if I faint, before I hit my head on the baptismal font.
I have to go out there in front of almost 200 people! And speak. Something that I wrote. It's weird, I don't really love sharing my writing with people, but then again, I'm writing a blog. Stupid, I guess.
But, I hope I'll have a good time, and that there isn't too much grinding at the dance! I don't want to go through THAT with my pure virgin eyes.
They might not like it that much. My eyes, I mean.
But on the other hand, I'm terribly sad, because next year, more than half the class isn't going to my high school! I love them all so much, and now they're going to be gone. We're so close-knit, too. We're all going to cry! I know I'll be bawling.
Well, on that spirited and firey note, I will leave you.
Hasta La Vista,

Well... Long Time No See!

I guess it HAS been quite a while since I posted. Sorry to maybe just the few of you who actually LIKE my blog, although I cannot see how you can.

Well, now my lovely corally-flourescent-pinky-orangeish nails are clacking across the keyboard, and I have nothing to writed about (except of course my corally-flourescent-pinky-orangeish nails).

Maybe I should write about WHY I have corally-flourescent-pinky-orangeish nails. How about that? Today was what we call Mission Day at my primitive elementary school (which is now officially going to stay open, after a tough and critical review!). The object of the whole day is to buy Gator Money (our school mascot is the Gator) for 10 cents a ticket and then you go around and enter yourself in raffles and visit Mrs. T's famous White Elephant Sale, and get your nails painted (hence the corally-flourescent-pinky-orangeish nails) and eat lots of goodies and get as FAT as you POSSIBLY can!

In case you're wondering what I'm heading for with this blog, my main objective is to give you things to write ABOUT. Maybe it will inspire you as that little picture in my History textbook inspired me. Or the Metis sash that I bought at Old Fort William last summer. Or the Sound of Music (which I think is a movie that surpasses ALL others). Or maybe the thing that inspires you is a picture of Taylor Swift's long, golden hair. Or maybe just a picture of Orlando Bloom.... awwww... dreamy!

And his jaw, don't you like it? I've never seen such a beautiful jaw!

The Love Chapter

"If I speak in tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing."

- 1 Corinthians 13 1-3, Study Bible, NRSV
