Ladders

I had a job interview this morning. I think I am coming to the conclusion that I just don't want to work. It all sounds hard and painful and not fun. So, I told my parents that I would be living with them forever. I hope that's okay with them.

Ya know, the good deed thing is just going to have to be something that I remember in my head, because they aren't really good enough to share on here. Not Blogspot worthy.

The seniors at my school put up envelopes every year that people can put letters, notes of encouragement, or small gifts in. This year I only had like two seniors to write notes to, but I still wanted to do something else for everyone that I don't normally talk to. This is what I did.
I know it's not a great picture, but I was just trying to show what they were in this one. I put verses on each one and on the back I wrote "Jesus Loves You". I didn't make enough for all of the seniors though. Oh well.

Today I also found out that I don't have a fear of heights, I just have a fear of ladders. I am helping to paint my house (I'll take a picture of that tomorrow) and I was on the roof, ladders, and scaffolds (I think?). The only thing I felt very scared on was the ladder. I thought about Jesus though. Putting your life into God's hands is kind of like climbing a ladder. It's very scary, yet you still trust the ladder with your life.
 That's a scaffold. So imagine that only A LOT higher.

I love Google. Here are some pictures from me. I am planning on getting a good one tomorrow, but, knowing me, that will probably not work out.

Rainy Days and Saucy Chicken

I have decided that maybe a good deed is when someone genuinely thanks you (or should have) for something that you didn't have to do. It sounds kind of like a lame definition, but that's what I got. Yesterday, I turned this girl's math homework in for her so that she wouldn't have to get up. Today, I helped pick up a bunch of pencils that a girl dropped. I know. I am SO nice. But maybe it's the little things that count?

I definitely tried picniking a picture that didn't save. I will just have to do another one real quick. Here is what the before and after look like. It's not really that cool, because it's hard to tell what it is kind of. It was taken through a window though. Let your imagination go wild! :)


I also made dinner yesterday and I kept thinking, "I'm going to take a picture of it. I'm going to take a picture of it." I even got my camera out, but I totally forgot. I made mozzarella chicken, garlic pasta, Italian bread, and salad. Okay, so I didn't make the bread or salad. I decided to try and get a picture of the remnants, but it was NOT working so well.
Have a super rest of you day!

Good Deed?

So, the photo challenge things. Yeah, I don't know. I guess I might try it for a little bit, but I'm pretty sure I will give up after a while. There was another challenge that I found online yesterday that said try to do a good deed everyday which sounds easy enough. But what IS a good deed? For instance, today, someone asked me for help with a math problem and I gave him the quadratic formula. Is that a good deed? I asked my lunch table what they thought a good deed was today and they responded with things like:

"Anything that makes someone smile."
"Brightening someone's day."

Then, I asked about complimenting. I compliment someone everyday, no lie. So, do I actually perform a good deed? Probably. I want to challenge myself though to do good deeds in different ways. In such a way that I am forced to step out of my comfort zone.

The thesaurus has good synonyms like, "aid, benevolence, courtesy, favor." Whatever, I guess I will just have to come up with my own definition.

I know this picture sucks. I wish I didn't get the clothes in the back.
Oh, and I'm still not going to be posting everyday. I have had a lot of time lately. It's so nice.

Same Post Everytime

So, I know I just posted and everything, but I need to put this out there. If I don't do it on here, it will most likely be my facebook status which wouldn't turn out so great. :)

I am sick and tired of everyone (including myself) complaining about every single thing in their life. Yeah, I know that the tests you had to study for were really hard. I understand that the drama that girl causes infuriates you. And, trust me, I have gone on for days where I felt like nothing could go right too. But we have so much more to look at in life.

I can guarantee you that right now, at this very second, someone is grieving over a loss that shouldn't have even happened in the first place. It might be people getting in car accidents or being involved in a relationship that went all wrong. While you might be thinking right now, "That would never happen to me. I am a safe driver and my boyfriend is great." Well, here's something we all need to remember. You can't control your life.

So, instead of complaining all the time about everything, let's make sure to not take anything for granted. Look at everything that you do have in you life!

  • If a friend is bothering you, at least you have friends.
  • If you are upset that you have to make dinner, at least you have food.
  • If you are mad at your boyfriend for not getting you flowers, at least he isn't abusing you.
It may sound extreme, but it's just what's on my mind.

In other news, I have been wanting to get involved in more lately. Like more hobbies. I looked online for year long challenges (to give me some motivation for something), because I didn't want to just copy Christina, but there isn't much out there. There was a challenge to take a picture of yourself everyday which sounded fun, but conceited. I am going to try to do it anyway and maybe take a picture everyday. I still probably won't post super often, but I guess I'll just see how this works out.

Look at me Now.

Welp. Here I am. I would like to say that my life has been getting too busy for updating my blog, but, the truth is, I have had time. Not very much, but still, time. I like to use this time however to do pointless things like facebook, sleep, worry, text, or shower. Okay, so I guess showering is kind of important, but sometimes I really don't want to take a shower. Sorry....but that's the truth.


Anyways, my life lately? Well, not a lot. I have taken my SAT, ACT, and both of my AP tests. Junior year. It's a blast. Now that both of my AP classes are over with though I have so much more time. I used to have to read about 10 or more pages of history every night and take notes on it. Although I am not completely peaceful about the work that I did on the tests, I'm glad they are done and that I barely have any homework now.

The job search is stressful, but at least I'm trying.


One of my best friends ever comes home on the 24th. ;) I loooovvee Julianna, and lately I have been feeling a little bit lonely friend-wise.


School ends on the 26th. That's my burthday too. Yay!


As you can see, nothing really exciting is happening. I just felt like now would be a good time to blog and at least be able to say that I blogged. I have realized that I was a lot cooler at the beginning of the year. Oh well. People change. So what?

Watch this.

Love you.
