So, I have five minutes before I need to be at the bus stop. I figured it was a perfect opportunity to blog about something.

I started listening to Leeland. There is a cool song that I like called Sound of Melodies. It's pretty. I want to learn it.

Worship music is hard to write. I'm going to try to write more of it though.

I have MSN messenger now. backofffreshman[at]hotmail[dot]com, if you'd like to add me. If I don't know who you are I will blog you, so you know.

Gotta go.



Starved for your attention

(This is stolen from my other blog, so if it doesn't make sense that's why.)

HI GUYS I AM ALL BACK AND STUFF!!!!!!!11!!!1!1!!!!1

I am in school. Mrs. Ronca is getting copies made of our lesson. Then we will actually do something. Until then, I am here. Yay!

Small and I had a nice morning meeting today.

Today is class colors day. No one told me this. I should have worn green. I have camo pants on, so that kind of counts. Tomorrow is superhero day (Mom, ask Sophie if she has a Superman shirt that I can wear. Otherwise I might steal one from Leo or Ian), Wednesday is wacky Wednesday or something (I have no idea what I'll wear for that), Thursday is Rock Star day (psh. I just have to act normal for that one. ), and Friday is Ballard stuff day. So. Tomorrow I will steal a superhero shirt from one of my siblings, Wednesday I will probably just wear weird colors and do something funny to my hair, Thursday I'll get all punk and stuff (I should totally try and find an inflatable guitar. That.Would.Be.Hilarious.), and Friday I'll just wear one of my 2 Ballard shirts (should I wear my tennis shirt or my football shirt?).

My throat hurts. It's all scratchy feeling. I'm going to make some tea when I get home.

I might go get ice cream with some of my bestest (I'm totally allowed to say 'bestest', right?) friends. I would meet Emily at DMACC and then go with her to pick up Andy and Sierra from school, and then we would go get ice cream. I like ice cream. I also like Emily, Andy, and Sierra. See? It'll be fantastic.

Tonya isn't here. Hmm. I don't see her, at least. Maybe she's on the other side of the computer lab where I can't see.

I am starving. I forgot a snack. It's early out today, but I don't know what that means for me. I don't think anything changes. There might not be advisors. But I don't really know so I'll just wander until the bell rings.

There's a guy here that calls me Homeschool. He swears a lot.


Change is coming, no, it's nothing personal

I'm at school. We had a quiz today in graphic design. It was interesting. I'm not totally sure how I did, but we'll see.

Today is Wednesday. Yesssss! I have to pack lots of stuff before Lighthouse and small group. For the trip. Ugh. I hate packing. It's almost as bad as unpacking.

My fingernails are so weird and gross. They're like... messed up. Yeah. I guess it's a good thing I'm a musician and my fingers aren't required to be pretty.

It is really, really cold in here.

Everyone is playing games.

I keep accidentally hitting weird shortcuts and opening things. It's a little strange.

I can almost type without looking at the keyboard now. I'm smart like that.

Here ends the random sentences.

Go entertain them, they're waiting for you

So, it's been a few days since I last posted. I suppose that's because not a lot has gone on. But since I try to update this fairly often, I'll try to make the last few days sound interesting.

Yesterday was Monday. I don't really like Mondays all that much. Driver's Ed was stupid, just like it was last week, school was slightly annoying, although we did start a cool project in Graphic Design that I finished today. It's some kind of cool collage deal that's made up of stuff that we cut out and stuck on to other stuff. I'm sure my fabulous description makes it clear. Or something.

Overflow was good on Sunday night. Pastor Gabe is off being in the Air Force doing weird military training things so he won't be back for a couple weeks. While we all miss him, youth group was still good and Mrs. V did an excellent job teaching. Next week Uncle Steve is teaching, and he's using a song that I really like called "MySpace" by Eleventyseven. That song is hilarious. I'm excited.

I am going to be gone this weekend. We're going camping (ugh) on Lake Rathbun in cabins that are nice and such. We're going to be there with my parent's old small group and their families. There are two or three kids my age, and hopefully they won't get out of coming like I tried to do. Haha. Anyway, I'm trying to make the most of it. I should try and get Em or Sierra to come help me pack. Eh. I can just do it myself I guess. But that's so much less fun.

I am the worship leader for See You At The Pole and Ballard High this year. I am very excited. I talked to the coordinating student leader whatever dude today about it, and basically it looks like the music and everything is up to me. Which is always cool, because then we all get to sing the songs that I like. *laugh* Anyway, it's going to be quite cool and I am very excited.

I am also leading worship for Overflow on Sunday night. Andrew is playing bass, which is awesome because he's really good and that way if I mess up it isn't as obvious. I don't really know what songs I'm going to do, so tomorrow I will get Gabe's book of songs after Ichthus and then hopefully pick some, maybe steal some for my trip and then let Andrew know what the deal is. Of course, if I don't pick any it will probably be fine, but it's always better to know ahead of time I guess.

Those last three paragraphs started with "I am". Which just shows how much I am doing over the next week or so. Or something like that. I'm not really that busy, it just seems like it. Or maybe I'm really busy compared to the rest of the world, but I don't know it. Or maybe I'm just a homeschooled loser with no life so anything I do that's not normal makes me busy. Whatever, I guess.

I am currently listening to a Weird Al parody. It's called "You're Pitiful". It's hilarious. I need to send it to Jason because I think he'll laugh at it. I also need to send him the zip file of that one ninja font that I promised him like, weeks ago. I like funny things. I need to watch more Homestar Runner, because that's one of the funniest things on the face of the internet. Does the internet have a face? What does it's face look like? It is a boy or a girl? Oooh, Mara asks nice, thought-provoking questions.

I am going to make a seperate blog post with my packing list on it so you can all see it. Because I'm weird like that.

I also need to ask Ben how to add a signature to Blogger. Ryan, do you know how to do that? I can't figure out how. Not that I've looked very hard or anything, but why would I look for something that I know someone else can find? Man. I'm lazy.

Is this long enough? I think so.




That's not a line from a song. Do I lose?

Iowa beat Iowa State. My new hat is omcredible. I adore my friends. I'm really worn out. I played touch football with some friends. Couldn't catch the ball. It was fun. Here's a picture of me and my pseudo-brother wearing nice hats to highlight the sibling rivalry. It's hard to see mine, though. Oh well.

Being on a side is way more fun than being neutral. It gives you something to be excited about. That's a good thing, I am pretty sure.

Tomorrow I need to bring slip-on shoes and a cellphone to church. NO ONE LET ME FORGET. That would be kind of not good. I need that stuff for a skit I'm in.

I should write a song. About what? Hmm. I don't know. We'll see. Sometimes it's nice to just make something up as you go along until you have something solid, and then just build on that. Maybe that's what I'll do.

I'm worn out. TEE TEE WHY ELL.



Everything inside you knows there's more than what you've heard

I am sitting in Graphic Design right now. I am the worship leader for the school's See You At The Pole, which is exciting. I just learned this today. I just loaned Justin Forre my planner with our hall pass thingies so he could use it. There is a paper with my old neighbor's name on it. I take it he left it here. I have no idea what it is. I am getting hungry. Tonight is the fourth Party Bowl, and it is going to be fun. I need to send the whole world a link to this blog so that people will actually read my ramblings. Mid-terms are next week, apparently. I don't know what that means for me. Oh well. I have a granola bar in my locker that I am going to bring to the library when I meet Alex to figure out SYATP stuff. Since apparently he's meeting me there. I want to hurry up and get started with our assignment but we can't yet because Mrs. Ronca's computer is slow. No one sends me email anymore. Betsy isn't sitting next to me like she normally is. I wonder what I should wear tonight. Maybe I'll just wear what I have on now. But I wore this to the last Party Bowl. Hmm.

Those are some deep thoughts. Haha.



I shall never grow up, make believe is much too fun

YOU GUYS I HAVE A LOCKER NOW!!! I am so excited. It is going to be really nice to have a place to dump all my stuff.

I am sleepy. *yawn*

I think I have a math test on Friday.

Graphic Design is a really slow class. We are not learning enough quickly enough and it's making me feel more ADD than I already felt.

We were walking there
And I had tangles in my hair
But you made me feel so pretty

I love Eisley. They need another CD.

I need sleep. Tomorrow I will use my locker for the first time evarr. *happy*

Maraface the Butterfly


If I could turn around, I would tonight

So, life got way more complicated than it should have been yesterday, and then I decided that I didn't care. Life is good, and I am not letting anything get in the way, because God is all that matters.

Worship was good this morning. I played guitar and sang with the youth band. I am also playing at youth group tonight.

That's about it I guess.



Fountains and fluorescent lights

*sigh* I like life a lot.

The Crocodile Hunter died. He kind of had it coming though. But it's still kind of sad. Dead people are always sad.

I am very much a butterfly today.

I'm going to attempt to decorate this blog now.
