Right now, I am seriously SPAZZING.

4 AM tomorrow, leaving for AFRICA.

I can't believe it.

It's here.

Today wasn't bad, but there wasn't anything particularly good about it either.

I had a really yummy doughnut?

Grow Deep, Go Wide

Today was the first youth group of the year!! (the title is our "motto")

but, um, smile... I slept until 12:30 today... yay.

AND all the crazy wonderful stuff that happens at youth group. It's great because I know (almost) every single person pretty closely. The amazingness of being a junior =)

'Twas the first day of school.

Afterwards, my sister's friend came over and I dressed up like an artsy person (shirt 5 sizes too big? check. Plaid? check. Random accessories? check. Hoops? check. Curls falling out all over the place? checkcheck.) and acted as the demanding director while they acted in a pretty awesome music video =)

I'm going to be editing it up and such to show them soon.

Last Day of Freedom...if

...and well-spent, if you ask me!

I went to the school to finish up the bulletin board this morning, and then *kidnapped* Megan and her sister (who were also there) and took them home with me =)

After much fun on Photoshop Elements (yes we are dorks and we love it), changing my "new mail" sound in MacMail (love that too), and plotting to write a song and record it, even if it's about hedgehogs and ostriches, we went shopping.

Found a great pair of boots while out... if they had been on sale I would have snatched them up for sure. It would also help if I didn't have toothpicks for ankles, hehe. As it was, I couldn't afford them on my spend-only-fifty-percent budget, so I bought a shirt that was 5 sizes too big for 50 cents =)

And it begins =)

Today was the kick-off of Bible Force =)
That is the kids' church praise team =)

that's what got me into singing in church last Sunday. And today, I went back, happily, to my comfort zone.

So tell me... Who's the King of the Jungle??

I've been pretty busy lately... school starts up again Tuesday!

I'm not excited OR dreading it... I am indifferent. but I'll survive.

Happy- I'm rereading for the fifth, sixth, or seventh time (I really don't know) my FAVORITE trilogy of all time... it's an annual event.

check it out-

Students Against Boring Binders- that is a society I should really create.

I cannot stand having run-of-the-mill school supplies, or even ones covered in photos and memorabilia (ahh, ever the anti-conformist, eh?). So, every year, I get SUPER excited to get new binders... new playgrounds for the imagination in my fingers =)

Last year's was a pink be-sequined masterpiece, and the one before it was made out of an awesome pair of yard-sale jeans and duct tape. My LIT binder is covered in PURPLE duct tape and wrapping paper.

Today, I fabric-painted my pencil case, and got planning my next BINDER! yay!!
