rants and rambles

 I'm reading Christy by Catherine Marshal (this book is almost 600 pages long. and then I have another book coming up that I'm going to read that is over 800 pages long. awesomeness.) I have Britt Nicole's new CD playing with Stand stuck in my head, and I'm sitting on my bed (I just typed head. I wish I could sit on my head) looking outside at the cars passing by. The grass is getting so tall that when the wind blows they seriously like waves in the ocean, tossing and waving as they pass by. I'm wearing running shorts and a big pink (surprise!) comfy sweater.

And I'm also sitting in bed with a sore throat, cold, and a headache. (Guess what? I typed headache "heachache". somebody really feels smart right now.) I've been feeling like this for the past few days, weeks even, I'll wake up ready to start the day then all of a sudden I feel all tired and weak. I'm eating enough (and eating really healthy), and I run a lot, but not too much, so I don't really know what's going on. Just pray this awful sore throat goes away, okay?

Enough about negative stuff. Let's get on to the positive thoughts. Last week was super busy, in a good way. I read tons and tons of books. And I took over 2 thousand pictures . . . yeeaaaahhh. I also managed to fit in two or three really long runs. So I made myself busy. I also studied like crazy. I'm trying to finish high school early, which brings me to my next topic.

Lord willing I'll be able to go on a few mission trips this year, hopefully out of the United States (already going to one in Phili early July). MAYBE IN UGANDA!! AAAAHHH! Okay, sorry, but I was just a little excited there . . . but seriously, if I want to go anywhere, I have to start earning some more cash. Even though I bought Cameron, I still have more than enough money to GET to Uganda, but that doesn't mean I have enough to buy a plane ticket to get back. I told mom it didn't matter though, as long as I can get to Uganda, I'm fine. Who needs cash to get back? I can just stay in Uganda forever. She thought that was funny.

Most of you have heard that I feel like I've been called to go back to overseas, I just don't know where. I really like what lots of young women are doing in Uganda, but I don't feel like God's calling me there. Maybe for a year or two, but not permanently. As I said, I'm not sure. I'll just have to keep waiting. :)

By the way, I've taken so many pictures over the past week I can't fit them all into one post. I'll just dump a bunch at the bottom of this one. Hope you don't care.

I think I'm going to go take a nap. My head is killing me.

(Oh my goodness this is so random.) It did help to write a post like this though. Sometimes I just need to write out all my thoughts like this is a journal, or a letter. Hope ya'll don't mind. I could make this like a post series you know . . . every week or so post a random post like this. ha. just kidding. one crazy post is enough, right?

Buuuut before I leave, I do have some really good post ideas coming up, plus a new blog design whenever I get the time. Don't you love me? I leave the blog for a month, then come back and fix it up real nice, then leave again. I'm such a considerate person. Some of the post ideas are a bread baking post (half of you thought of peeta. please. and the other half have no idea what I'm talking about), April bucketlist (uh, April is like halfway done with ... WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?), and I thought of posting some of my writing on here. I also might add in a real heart to heart post. You know, some deep stuff that nobody ever talks about on blogs. oh yeah.

This post turned out extremely long and rambly (that isn't a word...) and probably boring and filled with writing mistakes. But that's okay. Sometimes we all need some things that don't make sense.

you deserve a medal award if you read all of this.

love in Jesus,

'simon says' is so much fun.

 My sister asked to use my camera for a minute, to which she promptly snapped a few pictures of me then a few of the garbage in the trash can...


  1. You can't go to Uganda unless you bring me along. Hands down. ;) I think I have a few pennies to start my funding...somewhere...

    1. Oh, wouldn't it be fun if we could all just go and not worry about money?

      haha, just a random though. :P

    2. THOUGHT. ha.

    3. Well...and the fact that I'm scared to death of planes. ;)

  2. Your photography is way too awesome. Seriously. LOL, I'm trying to save money, but at this rate, I will probably never go anywhere. :P I love long rambly posts. :)

    And I get a medal now. Muahaha. Can it be gold?

    1. You can have a paper one. jk. ;)

  3. Love all the pictures! Especially the ones looking through the stair rails! so cool! and I LOVE ramble posts. RAL and I didn't think of Peeta until you mentioned him. So. I'm not as obsessed as I used to be.

  4. Where I live is the best place to do mission work. We're handing out leaflets to people and there is hardly any Christians so...I love it here. I wanna go overseas too! To a really hard country...probably Mauritania....Can I have a medal? ;)


thanks for sharing your thoughts -- comments make my day!
