In which is revealed that I’m still alive



Hey, guys!! :) Long time no see!! :) Wow, I can’t believe it’s alright July!!!! Summer’s in full swing, and man, am I busy! We’ve been doing stuff almost every weekend, and it’s kind of totally awesome to have a free weekend now. ;) (which will most likely be spent sitting on the couch like potatoes and watching movies. JK haha ;)) Anyway, so what have I been up to?

I’m going to start off with stories, I guess, because that’s kind of like the first thing that came to my mind. ;) I’ve been trying to write on this one story that I came up with around last December, and I’ve been redoing it more times then I’m pretty sure I’ve ever done before. The dilemma? I can’t get this one character just right. Who happens to be the main character in the first part of the book. Yup. But I think I’ve finally got her pinned. (hopefully the other two main characters won’t be this hard lol ;)) Other then that, I’ve also been kind of working on this really fun, younger kids kind of a story, which is kind of the stories that I love anyway. :)

Also... I’ve gone on two “long walks” (several miles...) kind of recently (in June or before June or something like that), which have been really great. :) (big points: 1. I’ve done this walk before! 2. Wow, I can’t believe I walked that far! I’m a beast! 3. Wow, I got a whole bunch of awesome pictures! 4. Wow! All other shorter hikes now seem like a walk in the park! 5. JK on all of these... hehe ;))

I’ve been playing around a lot with my photography, and it’s been a total blast. :) (especially taking pictures of food. And animals. It’s just so much fun.) I’ve been wanting to try and put some kind of a video together with the video from my camera, and I’m kind of excited to try it. (and to figure out how to use the programs to make movies on the computer... ;))

And then I’ve been cooking.





I think I’ve said this before, but I kind of have this thing where I kind of “make up” stuff, except that everyone else has probably already thought of it, it’s just new to me. But it’s been fun. My latest creation is the food above - fish, potatoes, and green beans. (all slathered in oil and salt. Yum yum.) I took some pictures of my beans and hotdogs - which is totally ordinary, but hey, it’s food, so let’s take a picture, right? - but I haven’t uploaded them yet. Soon. Soon. ;)

OK, so... I went and saw How to Train Your Dragon 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (by the way, I really loved some music from it... yup...) I won’t really say much about it on here, but I’m thinking of doing a kind of review on it on Dragonmaster. (hopefully some time soon, right? ;))

In other news... I’ve been a horrible reader. I think I’ve literally read three books all summer. Three books. Hopefully I’ll be able to improve that... ;) (I think two of these were from the same series, too. lol :D)

And I got to play volleyball today, which was really fun. :) And I love popcorn. Which is random. :)

Anyway, I’ll talk to you guys later! :) Have a great day! :) Be a hero ;)

God bless! :)

P.S. Oh! Oh! Yeah, and I’ve been playing the cello and ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT. (it’s soooo much fun to find out songs that you know on the cello. Anywho.) Bye :)

  3. I love reading your blog! And this was a particularly exciting post!

    HTTYD 2 was amazing! I saw that and Maleficent twice.

    That's so cool that you play the cello!

    I've been trying to write more, and I'm going to use a great story idea for a fun-looking writing curriculum called One Year Adventure Novel this fall! Sooo excited. Have you heard of it?

    Find some good books! I've been reading too many and usually more than one at a time ;)

    Enjoy your summer!
