I don't understand your gibberish.
I’m sick of everybody over-analyzing EVERYTHING.
My mom is on Facebook. As in, a green dot is next to her name. This feels strange.

…and you’re just like “I don’t know, I guess tomorrow when I walk out of my house I’ll just choose one from the swarm of guys that all come sprinting towards me.”
I often wonder if everyone knew EVERYTHING about, they would still like me.
I hate that after-nightmare paranoia feeling.
Every day there is one specific non-profit organization that philanthoper.com promotes. On the site there is a short article about the organization and an opportunity to give $1. No more and no less. The believe in a little bit going a long way. :)

Monday 3: Have AMBER alerts sent to you. →
I have forgotten to do this for many Mondays now. But I’m going to start again. Even though it’s Tuesday, this is for yesterday :)
Innocent until proven guilty.
When a person is accused of a crime in the United States of America, this person is considered innocent until proven guilty. A foundation of justice in this country. And from here on out, the foundation of each day for me. My days will be great, until proven bad. I think that many of my days have been this way, but my goal in stating this so publicly is to make it true everyday. For example; some...
I WILL play this someday :) →
Have you guys noticed that EVERYBODY has unlimited texting these days? I remember feeling bad texting certain people because they only had sobmany a month. Now people don’t even ask if you have texting. That was five years ago. Weird. Im too young to feel like this.
I am thankful that my dad took me to HOL today. I can imagine he would feel awkward seeing people that he hasn’t seen in forever and a day. And I’m glad he did it anyway because he knew that it’s what I wanted to do. Thanks :) And it has enabled me to make more friends at school :)
So… I’m not sure if this makes me a bad person or not… but I can’t help but laugh at other people’s misfortune. I don’t ALWAYS laugh… but I do whenever I can. Especially when people get hurt. Or when little kids cry over stupid things. Yeah… it’s official. I’m a horrible person :)

I had a great evening. This is how it went: Make crafts and color. Eat yogurt. Play three games of Clue (almost getting beat in each one). Play one game of Jenga. Make mac and cheese. Make no-pudge fudge brownies. Look for our old movie of Snow Day. Start the Jungle Book. Make brownie sundaes. Do dishes. Sit back and finish the movie in the big chair with Abby :)

Nights filled with longer hours. HEY!
Black ice and hidden lust White sheets of snow concealing Gloves on hands With warmer pasts And plastic sleds cracking The newly chapped Huddling against the wall Of shrinking college trends With the days living faster now We cast our make pretends Extra heat demands A rising constant power Darkness taking days Nights filled with longer hours. Got a jagged gorgeous winter from a summers...
Which to bury, us or the hatchet?
What happened to us? I heard that it’s me we should blame. What happened to us? Why didn’t you stop me from turning out this way? And know that I don’t hate you, and know that I don’t want to fight you. And know that I’ll always love you. But right now I just don’t.
So… ya know that part when you learn to ride a bike and you’re doing great! And then you realize you don’t know how to stop? This was my experience on my first run skiing yesterday. Since I had been skiing before(we were forgetting the fact that it was only twice, seven year ago) we decide we would try a blue first. Bad idea. I was speeding down the mountain and I couldn’t...
I love that time of morning when the sun is coming up, and all of the stars are gone. And then you look around and you see one single star shining bright, trying to fight the man(the sun). I’m proud of you little star :)

Sometimes I wonder if it's happening all over...
I miss staying up late on the phone talking about anything and everything. The times when the worst thing in the world that could happen was falling asleep. And ending the wondrous conversation. No beginning and no end. No restrictions. No limits. No worries. No purpose.
I hate it when I'm all cozy and comfortable...

Day 3 at Lee's Summit West High School
Weirdest thing that has happened so far throughout this endeavor; everybody at this school looks like someone from Harrisonville. The past couple days I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a lot of look alike twins, and it’s really strange. Today was good. I made some friends I guess. Soon I don’t think I will need to explain each and every day… but for now it’s nice :)

Tuesdays are great :)
I love Tuesdays. I love coming together with almost all of my favorite people and talking about life, and God, and the two mixed together. I always leave feeling happy. And rejuvenated somewhat :) Last night was especially great because it was almost like a family reunion it felt. After going so long without seeing us all in a group. I love them all!
Day 2 at Lee's Summit West High School
Day 2 was better than day 1. This is still all so strange for me though. I don’t have anyone to sit with at lunch. I don’t have people to walk with in the hallway. Or to talk to in class. And so many other things I know I wouldn’t have to worry about had I not moved. I have homework every night so far which I expect to get even larger. I have no time to go to my locker because my...
The worst is over and the best is yet to come :)
Today wasn’t too awful. And I think tomorrow will be better. I am feeling rather optimistic about life after bible study and seeing all of my friends tonight. Good time had by all :) (except Mallary who is extremely ill)
My favorite quotes. Well, some of them.
Tyler: Gandhi said that whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it’s very important that you do it because nobody else will. Like when someone comes into your life and half of you says: “You’re nowhere near ready”. And the other half says: “Make her yours forever”. Michael, Caroline asked me what would I say if I knew you could hear me. I said:...
I keep randomly bursting out in song. But it’s the middle of strange songs. I wonder if Abby can hear me…? Masquerade! Paper faces on parade… masquerade!

Didn’t I...
Day 28: If you died tomorrow, what's one thing...
I can honestly say that there is nothing that I would regret not doing. I read a quote once, “As you get older you’ll find the only things that you regret are the things you didn’t do.” And since I read that I’ve tried very hard to make sure to take every opportunity that I face and live it out to it’s fullest.
Tomorrow I start life at a whole new school. How would this make you feel? Because I feel a mixture of all feelings. I’m excited. And nervous. And anxious. And confused. And worried. But I don’t have many expectations. I feel the majority of the time, especially in a time like this, having expectations do not end you up in a happy place. I am still questioning myself as to whether...
