I'm Back

Errr, I have been away for quite awhile! It's sad, I miss having my special internet domain. Not that I did much on it before, but I still love coming home to it. I'm not really positive I can handle going back and reading my own posts, I'm sure it's incredibly embarassing! It's kind of like going back and reading semi-recent posts in your diary, it's only cute if you were at least a few years younger. A few weeks ago I found a few of my old diaries from when I was 9-11 years old. It was so freaking hilarious! Since I was sure someone was going to be reading it, I made sure to keep my stories strictly informational and safe. I clarified that I did NOT like this boy, or hate my sisters, or do anything that would possibly incriminate me. I was a smart girl. But yes. This blog will be far more active from now on, and hopefully not dull or offensive :)

Someday You Will Be Loved

You may feel alone when you're falling asleep
And everytime tears roll down your cheeks
But I know your heart belongs to someone you've yet to meet
Someday you will be loved

--Death Cab For Cutie

I love this song! Death Cab For Cutie has such beautiful, deep and sad music. Perfect for listening to when I'm in a melancholy mood. Their music definitely grew on me after a year or so...I guess you just have to listen to and ponder the words. It's amazing how they bring out the deeper meanings in the simple things one does. Like in their song Your New Twin Sized Bed, he sings about someone who has traded their queen sized bed for a twin, showing that they have lost hope of finding love and getting married. "You look so defeated lying there in your new twin sized bed," he sings...
I think they're one of my favorite bands for sure. It's a shame it took me so long to love their songs!

Summer Adventures!

Well I am finally home after a month of toiling in the fields and galavanting around Oklahoma, and I have to say, it was a pretty awesome summer! I don't think work was THAT bad, especially since waking at 5a.m. means dazzling sunrises like these:
The picture doesn't even do it justice! The whole sky was red and nobody would even bat an eye (probably because they were closed...). Oh well.
Camp was really fun as always, I met alot of people and made new friends and hung out with old friends! Camp seemed way more...toned down this year though. I don't know, maybe because some of the people who make camp fun and crazy couldn't go, and there weren't quite as many hilarious moments that you would tell everyone about. I still had a blast though! It was fun being ninjas, having our tribe meetings (best tribe evaaar), Playing (and winning ;p) The Tribulation Game, Playing full-contact Dutch Blitz, hanging out with friends, and everything that goes with it! :)

Annnnd Luke and Kierstyn's wedding was A-MAZ-ING.....LY FUN. Seriously. It was a blast! Everyone was dancing, even the little kids. My feet hurt sooo bad at the end of the night. Our table was the coolest table. We had fun :)
^^That's us^^

(P.S. I can be such a pessimist sometimes!!)

Book vs. Movie

So, yesterday I decided to spend all day reading Phantom of the Opera. I thought, "Well if I've seen the movie and claim to be a fan, why haven't I read the book yet?" So I ended up reading the entirety of the book in one day! But it surprised me. Normally, if you see the movie first, you like it better than the book. And if you read the book first, you like it better than the movie. Then why did I like the book waaaay better? Now don't get me wrong, the movie was still aaamazing, but the book seems just over-all better. I got SO into it, and it almost felt like you wanted everything to be real(Not the scary stuff. Frankly, I'm not too keen on being serenaded by some creepy stranger in the basement). The book was more horrific than the movie, but it was still thrilling and romantic. It also left you with a better sense of closure at the end. I can understand how hard it would be to compress a book into the two-hour movie/broadway musical timeframe, and for that they did an amazing job! But I would reccommend reading it after. :)

Here comes the......SUN!

Yay! It's summer already! Things have been going by way too quickly, and I haven't blogged in forever! Wasn't my last post about spring? Yikes. Anyways, I found a job for the summer, so that's good news. Bad news is, it's the same one as last year....working the cornfields! Dun dun duhhh... Get ready for waking at 4:30, weird tans, strenuous work, dehydration, freeezing and wet early days, and hot HOT afternoons. Wait I'm being too negative, there's also the cute small town we'll be staying in, the exercise, and the time with my cousins which is always good. ^_^ But, the best thing about the summer is CAMP! I seriously can't wait. Isn't that always the best summer event? Nothing beats seeing your good friends that you haven't seen in 6 months, at least. I'm convinced this will be my best summer yet!
Another thing that I will be making use of in the summer is my sister's love of horchata (the BEST summer drink!). We had some for the first time about a week ago, and we fell in love. She's been determined ever since to make the best kind yet. So she made (brewed? concocted?) some the other day, and it was as amazingly refreshing and milky as ever!'s the recipe!
Really simple for such an amazing drink, don't you think?

ahhh... Spring!

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens and nature. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be."
--Anne Frank
Yes! The sun has finally decided to appear again. After all those long months of being cooped up inside, I'm finally able to run around outside and climb my tree again! Everyone was starting to get the winter jitters, including myself. Six months of winter really gets to ya, you know? I just needed to frolick in a meadow somewhere!

So, I was looking around on (they have the cutest dresses ever!) and I found an amaaazing book! It's called "Sounding Smart at Parties" and it tells you how to hold an intelligent conversation about various things, and how to bring them up in a conversation. I thought it was hilarious! hahahaa I definitely want to get that book......for my birthday. I'm broke. Summer job I come!
