And so it goes.

This is probably my last day to be able to use the computer, so I might as well make a blog before I go. It's the least I could do. lol

For some reason though, after this weekend I really don't want to go now. I'm just finally starting to appreciate what I have. The podcast just so happens to be something that I love doing. As much as I don't like doing research, (I never have but what can you do?) I like hanging out with the guys, and most importantly I get to talk about the one thing that I know a lot about, and it's something that makes me happy. It's also something I feel I can contribute to, and not feel out of place (well I'm the only girl so I'm sort of out of place, but I can roll with the big dawgs...I don't know why I said that).

Friday I went to my friend's Heather and Cassidy's joint 16th birthday party. I got the biggest surprise when I walked in the door. My friend Shannon whom I haven't seen since High School was there. It just so happened that Heather's brother was friends with her. Small world. hehe. But over all it was a fun party, and it was something to get my mind off of packing.

Packing! Oh fun...NOT!!! I hate packing. Along with packing, I am also having to clean my room, so that when I do pack I won't break my neck. lol. Those of you who have seen my room (Harrison, Clint, Kathryn, Will, etc.) knows that I have a hard time keeping it clean, and that it is pretty messy. Thy also know I hate cleaning it. So this weekend has been one of the best, and worst weekends of my life. lol.

Yesterday we recorded the podcast. It was the 26th show which means we've been going strong for half a year!!! So to celebrate we had a mini party, and with that I mean myself, Brandon, Tyler, Jason, Alan, and My brother. Yeah they made me play a football game on the xbox. I don't understand football, nor do I have the attention span to play it as a video game. By some strange luck, I got picked to play against my brother. He also has no clue about football, but he plays video games more than I do. I was expecting him to win, but by a chance of luck I beat him fourteen to Zero. Haha Something I can Beat Eric at!!! YAY!!! He gets pissy when he loses.

Brandon and I when we were not playing watch the IT Crowd. I got someone else to like the show. I like talking to Brandon. He's a cool guy, and I feel like I can trust him. I have trouble with trusting people, so I found it so strange to me that I was able to trust him so easily so quickly. I just like spending time with him. I think I'll miss him the most out of everybody. We are still going to write each other, so that's always good. I like getting letters more than I do emails or anything internet related. I just feel like it's more personal.

Anyway. I already wrote a lot, but I found this old writing I did. I never finished it, but I do want to share what I have.

Music inspires everyone of us. It's a way to express ourselves whether it be playing an instrument, dancing, singing, or even writing lyrics to a song. Music is all around us, but what would happen if music was banned? Would it really be that bad, or would this society go to ruin?

I was wanting to write an article using that, but I never got around to it. Personally I'd hate it and I'd probably go mental. lol. Music is my life, and I don't know where I would be without it.


I'm gonna go either take a quick nap before church, pack, or find some bands that are giving away free downloads. Man I love Bands like that!!!

Until August

Much love

P.S. I will miss blogging. :(

So in nearly half a week...

...I'll be gone. I will go off for my second adventure as Summer Staff at Awanita Valley Christian Retreat Center.

I am hoping like I've said plenty of times before to make this go around a lot better than the last. Why you ask? Because last summer, I didn't act like myself.

I was a completely different person, and I didn't like who I was. I'm just hoping that they don't think that the way I acted last summer was who I am. This summer, I'm going to show them who I really am, and if they don't like it they can bite me...jk jk lol.

Anyways, I'm really excited...except for the packing part. I hate packing. That means I have to clean my room, so I can find everything. lol. I'm not very good at keeping my mind on one particular thing. I'm pretty sure you can tell by most of my blogs. lol.

Sunday was a very fun day. We, that is Kathryn, Will, Alex, Ryan, Abi, Allie, Tori, and myself went to Mellow Mushroom (I finally got to go!!!), Got to Shake hands with Clint Unicorn, as I posted in my last blog. Clint told me to post a blog that says just that and nothing else so I did. lol.
After pizza, we went to Coffee Underground. Allie, and Tori left after that, and the rest of us went to Falls park. That was an interesting trip. It was dark, and we ended up getting quite scarred. That's all I'm going to expand on that.

It was quite a hilarious night, and it was full of funny quotes. I wrote down what I could remember, but not enough to make into a post.

I have quite a bad memory.

Anyway. Thursday is the final Sunday School outing with our current Sunday school teachers Tony and Lisa. That makes me sad. I mean I've been used to them for the past few years. It will be really weird getting used to the new teachers.

Friday is my friends birthday party. It's at her house, and it's in walking distance so I don't have to worry about a ride!!! YES!!! It's hard for someone to go to a person party without a ride.

Saturday is my last recording of the podcast until August. It's also the half way through the year party for the podcast. lol. We've been going strong for 26 weeks!!! hopefully we'll go for much longer. Much much longer!!!

Sunday is church of course. It's graduation recognition service, so that means in orchestra we're playing...Pomp And Circumstance!!!! Whoop Whoop! lol. I don't have a part...unless Darian makes one.

Well I am listening to one of the best Trock bands out there...Actually the only one I know of. Chameleon Circuit!!!! They are awesome!!! Their cd comes out June 2nd and that sucks for me!!! I will have to wait till August to get it. :(

Well I've got to go.

Until next time

Much love

I have something to say...

I shook hands...(hoofs?) with a Unicorn that lives on Clint's face!

That is all.

Probably one of my last blogs...

...before I leave for the summer. I'm excited and raring to go, but I'm also afraid of making the same mistakes I did last summer.

But I am finally going to stand up for myself, and I am not letting anybody use me or push me around. Heck no!!!

Well I've had a pretty busy week, or at least it was busier than it normally is.

Went with my mom to the Saturn of Greenville Tuesday to figure out that she needed a new Fuel pump. With a rental Kia we went to Books-A-Million(I'd live in there if I could!!!), and before we even went in noticed the car had a nail. We still went in the store, and I got myself a copy of Maureen Johnson's book "Devilish". I got it for only 3 dollars. Yay for bargain books!!!

We then spent about 30 minutes looking for the car rental place. Found it and then got ourselves a Suzuki.

We went back to Saturn on Thursday to pick up mom's car, which she was super happy about. lol.

We went back to Books-A-Million, so we could look around more. I already knew what I was going in for though. I brought my wallet, and I bought myself "Paper Towns" by John Green. I'm so excited to read it!!! I do have to wait to read it because I told myself I'd read through The Harry Potter series before I left in honor of the movie that is coming out next month, and because I can't have non Christina books there. I'm still bringing "Paper Towns" and "Devilish". I need something to do on my days off, and free time...If I get any.

I went for a walk once my mom left for work. I checked the mail, got the newspaper, and read that the Easley Band Concert was that night. I had no idea what-so-ever. So I rushed to get ready, and called Kathryn up.

We went to Dunkin Donuts before and got ourselves some flatbread sandwiches. They were yummy!!

The Band Concert was Amazing. They played some really great songs, and they played it well. I really liked when the Wind Ensemble played Vesuvius. They played it really well.

Today, I went to play Ultimate Frisbee. I've been wanting to play the game since February. I love it!!! It's one of my favorite sports to play. I always look forward to playing. This was my only chance of playing.

We were suppose to record tonight, but there was a change of plans. Jason and maybe Brandon are going to the Spineshank show tonight. I'm glad for that because I'm so sore!!!

Right now I am listening to Harry and the Potters. This weekend is leaky Con, and I wish I was there!!! One day I will go no matter what!!! I will go and there is nothing anybody can do to stop me!!!

Tomorrow, since the guys moves the recording to tomorrow, I might go to Symon and Alex's joint birthday party, but I don't know how I'm going to work that out.

It's at these moments I wish I could drive. I hate having to rely on other people. It sucks!!!

Oh well.

Sunday I finally get to go to Mellow Mushroom. I'm excited about that!!! I'm gonna be chillin' with Kathryn, Will, and a whole bunch of our others friends. It's going to be great!!!

Well I've chatted enough.

I'm going to post two videos right now.

The funny one, which I think anyone will like even if you're a Twilight fan or not. It's got the guy who played James in the movie, and a group of Twilight Tweens girls. What follows is just pure hilarity!!

And this next video is a song I really like from the musical group that got me into music in the first place. I relate to this song a lot, and I think any girl that doesn't like to dress up will relate to it too!

Well I hope you enjoyed those.

Until next time

Much love and such.

The end of a great week.

I have been itching to write this blog all week long, and I finally get a chance to!!!

I am just hoping that I can finish this before the season finale of The Best Years comes on. Let's just say it's two hours and I know I will loss my train of thought.

Tuesday I got a sudden call from Skank (Ashley) asking me if I'd like to go to Awanita with her, Adam (Her Brother), and his friend Josiah. Of course any time I get a chance to go up to leave my house I jump all over it. So I get ready, and we head on out to go pick up Josiah, and then head up the mountain to a place I'll be spending ten weeks of isolation goodness two weeks that is. Anyway Josaih was going up there to apply for the last open summer staff spot available. Anyway we pretty much hung around the staff house. Angie and Colby came down to talk to us. Adam, Josiah, Colby, and myself had a mini flip-flop fight, and Colby and I had a argument again about who won the flip flop fight this past summer. To me, I will only take into account what video evidence shows us, and it shows that I had the last hit, therefore I win! If you want to have a debate on it, then watch this.

Anyway I only have 3 minutes till The Best Years comes on. I have the attention span of someone who doesn't have a great attention span.

*2 hours later*

I love "The Best Years", but I don't like how the have the season finale's end in cliff hangers!!! That makes me a bit mad. There has only been two seasons, but I'm sure there will be more.

*The Next Day*

My brother came home really early last night so I didn't get to finish.

Anyway back to what happened. After we went to Awanita, I hung out with Adam and Josiah at Adam's house. We watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Heck yeah!!!) Brittany and Tiffany came like in the middle of the movie. Then we watched The Virgin Spring, which is a Swedish film that is actually pretty good. I love Foreign films. then we had pizza. We also had tea which with the way we were acting it seemed like there was something in those Lady Gray tea packets...It was the funniest thing ever. I couldn't stop laughing from the way we were talking.

We watched the Surprise party and Body Fusion SNL clips. They are hilarious.

After that we watched Drop Dead Gorgeous, and I find it to be a funny movie, and a funny take on documentaries. I love documentaries,a nd I've always wanted to make one so I just found it humorous.

Thursday I spent the day hanging with Ashley O. I went with her to a ranch up near Awanita. She wanted to ride her horse Monty, and of course I took it as grand photo opportunity...That and I rarely get to hang out with Ashley. Horses are my favorite land animal, so I was happy that Ashley wanted me to come with her. I got a lot of pictures, and it was such a beautiful day. Then we got some Taco Bell, and headed back to her place to watch Big Bang Theory. That show reminds me sort of The IT Crowd. I love it!!! I love any show that involves scientific people, but I hate when they use the stereotype that Nerds are lonely sad people. It kind of pisses me off. Stereotypes suck and they should be banned from the universe forever!!!

Anyway. I thought my week had a great end, but then my brother had to come home pissy last night. I asked him if he had to work today, and he said your an idiot because I've been saying all week that I don't. Yeah he told mom at night while I was asleep. I kept trying to tell him that, but he kept interrupting me and calling me an idiot. I told him not to call me an idiot again, and he did so I pour a small drop of soda on his head. He was smiling for the first minute, then he just flipped. He tried to punch me like 5 time but only got me once. Then he kicked my door, and said I hope I broke something. I would have laughed if it was something of his. He left a mark on my door. The door did nothing to him.

Anyway He said he was going to lock me out of the computer...Doesn't look like it to me.

I apologized because I was really sorry, but he didn't. He always thinks nothing is his fault. He is quite a jerk, and an egomaniac. I seriously think he's Bi-polar, and needs help.

And he wonders why I don't like telling people that I have a brother.

Anyway. I should be at a birthday party for Kristen, but I'm here waiting. We have podcast recording tonight, and I don't want to miss the next few shows because then I'll have Ten weeks without it. Oh I'm going to be so out of the music world loop for some time.

Well I've got to go get ready.

This blog last longer than I originally planned on it to be. I guess I've learned my lesson. I need to be more focused when I post a blog. Or else it will take a whole day to post lol.

Much love

It's mother's day!!!

Yay!!! I first want to say I love my mommy!!!

I am super hyper today. Normally I'm all sluggish and tired on Sunday's, but I'm super hyper and happy.

Yesterday myself, Brandon, and Tyler went to Jason's house to record for the podcast, but his computer is acting funky. So we didn't get to record. The guys played Madden while I caught up on sleep. I haven't been sleeping well the past few weeks. Brandon kept bothering me. I hate being so ticklish!!! He'll get what's coming to him very very soon!!! I didn't mind not playing Madden though. I'm just happy to get out of my house anytime I can.

I'm currently catching up on the Brotherhood 2.0 videos. I only started watching their channel in about November last year. I want to at least finish all of the B20 videos before I leave for Awanita so I don't forget what day I'm on. lol.

I'm excited. I'm mentally ready for the summer, but not physically. I still need to get all my toiletries, cclothes, and other such things. Three more weeks!!!

Oh my brother got an internet connector for the Wii, so if you want have Wii wifi, and you want a friend, send me your friend code. I don't really know which friend code I should get. The only games I have that you can play online are Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Pokemon Battle Revolution.

I do not have church tonight. Longer nap time!!! yes!!!

So I'm going to get off here.

I miss BEDA. I like having to rack my brain for things to blog about. It's been almost a week and a half maybe even two weeks...And I can't think of what to talk about!!!! How sad is that?

I did have an idea yesterday, but I want to wait till I have my thoughts all written down on paper about that subject. It will be interesting. Who knows. I might even use that topic to make my come back onto vlogging. Exciting stuff.

Well until next time

Much love and best wishes

I'm writing about...


I have recently started writing poetry again. This was all brought out from watching HBO's new show Brave New Voices. It's awesome. All these teenagers are freaking talented. They are spitting out these lines like their life depended on it. It's powerful stuff. I think slam poetry is the top art form that can render me speechless. I've been a fan for years. It's just awesome.

It inspires me to keep writing, and to grow stronger in my writing. I know I will never be as great as other people, but I only write to get my thoughts out.

I like it so much that I thought I'd share a video with you all.

I really should be washing my dishes.

Oh well

Yesterday was a really great day to me. Recording the podcast is always really fun, but I feel I was at my best at last nights recording. I find that fun because I was at my best while at my worst. I'm still a bit sick, and my head is filled with snot, so that worried me a bit. I'm just afraid I'll sound a bit nasally.

I read a quote today that I loved once I saw it. It's from Brave New Voices and this girl named Britney Wilson wrote a poem called Crutches. From that poem is this line "It's hard for me to express myself cause I can't protect myself if I'm exposed." That is so true. I guess that's why I have such a problem writing because I'm afraid of what people will think if I lay my heart on the table for everyone to see.


I'm going to go.

I hope everyone has a great day and great weekend.

I'll see ya when I see ya!!!
