Ok, so this weekend I’ll be taking the SAT so I’m spending all week studying up for it.

I have finally decided (pretty much anyway) what college I’m going to. I’ll probably be going to Master’s college. Now before you ask what I know is on the tip of your tongue. No.

I haven’t decided my major yet. I have an idea, but I’m not completely sure yet. When I am I’ll post something or maybe put up a giant banner visible from space or something.

As for today, just school. I get to substitute for my piano teacher tonight though. That’s kind of cool. I can use the extra money. Oh, and since I know your all wondering.

I am taking donations towards a laptop for college. And tuition 🙂

so, till next post.

For thanksgiving this year we had school off for one day before and one day after thanksgiving (besides thanksgiving and saturday/sunday). So on thanksgiving we went to my grandma’s house and ate there. then watched the Broncos beat the Cowboys by a smidgion. Then we rented and watched Herbie Reloaded. It was cheesy, of course, just like all the other movies but still kind of funny and nice (like the other ones). This newer movie had a few things that shouldn’t have been in it, as usual, like the girl completely lying and disobeying her dad. Although I expected it from something made these days.
Anyway, this really was quite a delightful and relaxing holiday week where I stayed up till at least 2:00 (almost three last night) every night and got to sleep in!

Well thats all for now

Till next post.

Well, two days ago I faxed my application to Master’s College.

Hope they like it!

I can’t think of anything else thats happening, but today I’ll be teaching piano, taking piano lesson, and helping at awana. Then tomorrow me and Benjamin are debating again. Oh what fun! We will probably be the negative side this time, so that’ll be fun.

Don’t have much to write this time, so here’s a joke for y’all.

A mother wanted to teach her daughter a moral lesson. She gave the little girl a quarter and a dollar for church. “Put whichever one you want in the collection plate and keep the other for yourself,” she told the girl.

Sunday, when they were coming out of the church, the mother asked her daughter which amount she had given.

“Well,” said the little girl, “I was going to give the dollar, but just before the collection the preacher said that God loves a cheerful giver. I knew I’d be a lot more cheerful if I gave the quarter, so I did.”

Till next post.

So, I just got back from a little dinner at a hotel hosted by Wycliff Bible translators. It was pretty cool. Sebastian was there too with his parents. We sat at a different table. They had good coffee. Anyway, it sounded really neat, and is getting me thinking about going into Bible translating. Just a thought, but it definitly sounds like something really cool to do, something I would enjoy doing.
Just a thought though. Anyway, thats about all. I really need to get working on debate stuff more. I’m probably going to quit speech after we finish the humourus interpretive speeches (i’m really looking forward to those) so I can put more hours into debate research, and building a case.

That reminds me, I have some speech homework to do. Hmmmm, which to do first speech or debate, speech or debate.
Help me decide!

Till next post.

The World of Disiance

This weekend I went with my youth group to an overnight event called turkey twilight. I have taken the liberty of linking to Chandler’s blog since he already wrote pretty much everything that we/I did there.

Click the link above ^^ to go to the post. If you don’t read it the rest of this post won’t make much sense.

The first few games I tried to be competitave, but never actually won any games, even though I got pretty close.

The last few games me and max would go crazy bowling where we would try out of many different methods, “granny bowling” where we take the bowling ball with two hands and bowl it either directly in front of us or underneath the legs. That was really fun. Especially becuase I could do somewhat well that way too.

Till next post.

(couldn’t find a good quote so I got a short joke)

A couple was arranging for their wedding, and asked the bakery to inscribe the wedding cake with “1 John 4:18” which reads “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”

The bakery evidently lost, smudged or otherwise misread the noted reference, and beautifully inscribed on the cake “John 4:18”:

“For you have had five husbands, and the man you have now is not your husband.”

Well, Yesterday was my birthday. I was pleasantly suprised by a breakfast in bed and a giant king size candy bar.

Later that morning I went with my dad to Home Depot, Then I was taken to Bojou’s (sp?) Pizza with him. I had forgotten how good their pizza was. After that we went to Office Max and just looked around and talked for a good long time that was really fun, then we went to walmart and my dad bought my gifts. He said that its just a whole lot easier if I pick out my gifts myself, and he said it is the same with him becuase he likes a certain kind or whatnot.

Then we came home and had cake and my grandparents were over. Then I opened gifts and got a Starbucks gift card, headphones, a pocket digital radio, oh and i got two very nice cards from Sarah and Philip. Philip also got me a Sobe. It was a great day. Well now I’m 18 and they can draft me lol. Doesn’t feel much different.

Oh well. And in case you’re wondering, NO I did not buy any cigars or lottery tickets.

Till next post.

Well I’ll start with (eeny meeny miney moe) yesterday’s activities and then tell about today’s.
Yesterday I had piano lessons as usual. Then at the end alexis, my piano teachers’ dog, puked right in front of us. It smelled really bad. Then I worked on the teaching schedules entering new clients and lesson times and such. Couldn’t figure out how chandler printed it the way it was laid out on the old schedule, and I had to go start teaching anyway so Chandler went and printed it while somone else took over his teaching during their lesson. I assume Mary Ann made up for stacey’s lesson. That’s who finished teaching the person Chandler was teaching at that moment.
So that was pretty interesting.
Then I had to give an eight extra “makeup” minutes for my first student becuase we started late two weeks ago. That worked out ok, except I had to make the other lessons go two minutes late since he didn’t come eight minutes early. Then Ryan came (another student of mine, who happens to be my most “hyper” student). Lucky for me I think last night was probably his most cooperative lesson so far.
After all that, I went and helped out at awana. That went pretty well. The kids were pretty good (at least on green team).

Today
Today my family went to our friday classes. I went to choir where we had to sing a song without music. And it wasn’t a song where we had ever seen music for, so that was pretty hard. Then we got to do my favorite song though, that was fun. We also had speech, where we are working on interperative speeches. I say we because Benjamin is in speech and debate. Then we went to debate and that was good. Our debate teacher didn’t come till quite a bit later so some of us started early. Two of the girls in the class started debating and I was time keeper. Unfortunatly (for the debate round we had started) one of the moms came and had us start doing book work and broke up our debating practice. And we did that till our teacher came.
We are having the mow kids over here for the weekend. So pray for my sanity.

Thats about all. Oh, yes and tomorrow me and Benjamin are going to Chandler’s house for Benjamin to build his computer.

Till next post.
