this may be the best year yet!

So, since JamesMark wrote a highlight page and "he's my hero".... I figured I'd make one too.

This year has been full of trials and great times. Growing up isn't quite as easy as i imagined it was. Harder, but maybe better.

This year, I've become good friends with Natasha, who roxs my sox and pretty soon here she'll be sleeping on my bar. Natasha has taught me a lot about life and I really appreciate her because of her "been thenre, done that" advice. I also just think shes one of the funniest people I've ever met.

i'll continue this later.

top five

here are five reasons that I don't hate Andy Costa.
1. He is nice to me
2. He is exceedingly tall, which in my language is synonymous with cool.
3. He has never been mean to me that I can recall
4. He makes me laugh... a lot.
5. I don't hate anyone, why would I waste my time hating him?
sorry, Andy, for being mean to you. I didn't do it on purpose.

And the winner is...

Hello! well, its been a minute or two since I posted last, and a lot has happened. Unfortunately, the catch 22 is that if there is a lot going on, there is not much time to write about it and vice versa.

The one thing I'll write about is April 14, a very memorable evening.

On the evening of April 14, my friend John Davey had a concert at sacred grounds. It was supposed to start at 8pm. In our anticipation, Anne and Jenna and I got there at around 7:30. we look up at the beautiful sky and... realize its going to rain. a LOT. As our friends arrive, we are distracted by them and thoughts of the impending storm are all but erased from our minds. Most of the kids I know start playing hackey sack. I watch them, and notice the lightning over the rooftops. and then this man comes outside and says something that makes me laugh....
" Hey kids! I hate to break up a hack, but its about to rain. let's take this hack inside!"

haha. Ok, so maybe thats only funny to me.

Then, we waited for 8 o clock to arrive while the storm came upon us. It wasn't too bad, but there was some wind and rain and some fun lighting and thunder. I was about to walk outside to call some friends that had yet to arrive when...

the sirens went off. At first only a few people noticed, and then there were some adults talking about it. Soon afterward, 70 plus people were herded down to the basement, which, I might add, is not finished. I was getting kinda scared, because at least three of my friends hadn't gotten there yet. We sat around in the basement for a while, and I was anxiously waiting for Erin, Tiffany and Troy to show up and prove they hadn't died in the tornado.

Soon enough, they got there and joined us in the crowded basement. Fun ensued, and all thoughts of the storm left our minds. about 45 minutes later, we went upstairs again and the concert finally started.

I had a TON of fun, thanks to the entertainment of John and Jeremae Yoder (sp?). and of course, thanks to all the people I was with.... Erin, Troy, Tiffany, Jenna, Anne, Paul, Rachel, Marcus, etc, etc. I also talked to Alex Blake and found out that we had both gone to Mrs. Shafer's art class a long time ago, which is cool. I like to meet/talk to new people! So, as of now, he's on my cool people list. yay.

The night ended pretty uneventfully after that. so, thanks for listening to my really long and boring account of an awesome time. ta-ta!

love to all and all to love....

A La Mode!

Hello FOLKS! what's up?

I'm getting to the end of a very boring week of school. Stanford Achievement Tests may just be the most silly things EVER invented. I can only "hold my breath in anticipation" for next year when I don't have to come in til 10:50 almost every day. Ok, only 360 days til the NON S.A.T.'s! wow.

I have a big spanish test on monday that could very well determine my grade. Meanwhile, I also have a Church High School Youth Group Retreat at Chartwell this weekend. I hope I have SOME time to study in all that other stuff, or else, who KNOWS what?

John Davey has a concert at Sacred Grounds on the 14th at 8 pm. come one, come all!

I think I may be in love......

.......................... with texas toast!

anyways. Andy Newton now has a date for the good old Jr/Sr. way to go, man!

sorry for this very boring and strange random mix of blah. love you all....
