First time for everything

So today while I was driving home all of a sudden I remember my friend Katie saying something about my road having a lot of places where cops could 'hide out'. I quickly glanced at my pedometer and saw that I was going 60 in a 35. Oops. So I hit the brakes and slowed it down a bit. Not really thinking anything about it.

 I pull into my driveway and right when I was about to get out of the car a cop pulls in behind me with his lights on. I honestly had no idea what his deal was. He came from the opposite direction I was coming from so I didn't expect him to want anything to do with me. Then he asked for my license and insurance. Crap!

After talking to me about the dangers of how fast I was going( I know I shouldn't of been going that fast), showing me how many points where going to be taken from my license(6!), and showing me the fine I would be getting ($224). He finally asked me what school I went to. I told him. He said, "Well then I feel that you are being genuinely respectful to authority and all around a good kid. I wont right you a ticket or even a warning."

 Say what?

Thank you Mom and Dad for sending me to a christian school!

He then shook my hand and left.

Good thing I decided against my idea of flirting my way out of a ticket. My innocent little girl act worked! Just kidding! I didn't even have time to think of a plan. He scared me!

Well, looks like I will be following the speed limit from now on!

Thats one big chip

I should really by doing homework but the internet looked like a better idea! I even have proof that I had good intentions!
See!? English right next to my laptop.
Which will get done eventually!
Sometime around now and 1:24pm tomorrow.
And no that is not the time my english class starts!
I think it starts at 1:25pm.

This picture makes me laugh every time I look at it!
If you look closely you will see a red van behind my car.
That is my Sydney Bean driving.
She didn't know how to get to my house, so I showed her!
I just went a few miles out of the way.
In the middle of the adventure to my house she took a sharp turn and started fish tailing!
It was scary.
No worries though!
She is alive and well.
So is the car.

This picture has no special meaning at all.
I was just shocked at the size of this chip!
This picture doesn't do it justice!
It was huge!

Tomorrow starts the weekend!

Its been a while

This week has been one that I would like to forget about. Lots of tears, heartbreak, and soul searching. I like writing about fun and happy things but I needed to vent. I have so many unfinished posts because I'm afraid of hitting the publish button. It was a lot easier when strangers only read my blog but now I have friends reading it. Blogging has always been my way to vent. Keeping it all in isn't fun!


I decided that I'm officially going back to Haiti on a mission trip. I'm so excited to return! Hopefully I will be going back with my best friend. This time around I hope to be more involved with the planning and teaching. God has big plans for Haiti and I cant wait to see what they are.


My Pastor and I don't have a good relationship. It wasn't always like that. He has hurt me a lot emotionally time and time again. This time I was done dealing with it. He accidentally sent me an email that was aimed at the person in charge of the mission trip planning. Basically telling her he doesn't want me to go. That was the last straw for me. My Dad confronted him. Then other people came up and voiced their concerns about my pastor.Which lead to him suddenly resigning. Leaving my church confused and on the verge of closing. Ive been told multiple times this isn't my fault yet I still feel like it is.

I thought confronting him would allow me to walk away from it all. Start fresh at a new church. I didn't want my church to crumble because of my choice though. I feel hurt once again that he would leave my family the guilt of all of this.


Eric and I hit a rough patch and I needed out. Isn't it weird how things can seem perfect one day but be a mess the next? Well, I asked for space. That lasted for three days before I realized that I didn't want to lose him. I went to church with him today. The short break was good for us...or me.

"You know someone could wait for years and years for a girl like you. A girl as beautiful as you are. I want you to find him and be happy. You deserve no less."

That ladies and gentlemen is what brought me to my senses. After I told him I needed a break. It took me three days to respond to that though. Good thing he is patient!


I almost missed celebrating the chinese new year with my favorite asian. I hate fighting with my best friend. She is to important to me! So I decided she was worth facing the people I didnt want to face. It was an important step.

5 Question Friday

1. Where do you hide the reeeally good snacks?
In my purse. ha Seriously though.

2. Do u keep your vehicle clean or am I the only one who has things falling out of their van?
I'm constantly switching cars with my parents and they keep their cars messy!! It tries me crazy. I like clean cars.
3. Have you ever been to Vegas?

4. Warm room light blankets or cold room warm snuggly blanket?
That's so hard to pick from!! I hate sleeping in a cold room because I always wake up with a sore throat. Snuggling up with a blanket though is one of my favorite things to do!

5. What is the worst airplane/flying experience you've ever had?
On my way home from Florida I had a bad airport experience. Having 20 minutes until your next flight takes off and still having to go through customs, baggage claim, security, etc. That was a blast!
Ive never had a problem related with a plane or flying before.

I love him

The walls of officially been taken down.

Ive been dating a great guy for six months. In the beginning I told him we needed to take things extremely slow. He respected my need for that. I was terrified of getting hurt and he had some walls to slowly take down.

Just exactly how slow are we taking things?

We have never used the word love. He knew how serious I took that word. How that when it was said, I really meant it.

A few weeks ago I was thinking about the "love" feeling people get. Sure, I love lots of people in my life but not in the way the love stories talk about love. I thought they were kidding when the explained the feeling.

The boy has broke down the walls and has stolen my heart.

Its terrifying.

Its exciting.

I have that unexplainable feeling about him.

I love him.

Sarah is my bff

She is. My hero. And I love her dearly.

*This is what happens when your friend has access to your phone.*

Its all true except being my hero. ha

Tomorrow is the only day I have to take finals.

I'm still stressing over it though!

School would be so much better if it didn't include finals.

Why do the expect me to remember all the pointless things we learned throughout the year so far?

If you dont here from me for a while.

 Just assume the stress of finals was the end of me.

My first rant of the year!

Makes me feel as if me complaining is going to fix things.

Only in a perfect world!

I hate baths

So I needed to relax a bit and in all the movies people relax in the tub! So I set up my laptop for a little music(and an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians), poored myself a glass of Dr. Pepper, filled the tub with water, and attempted to relax.

I came to the conclusion that I hate baths!

I kept thinking how disgusting tubs really are. Yucky. Then I started feeling exposed. ha So I went and put on my bikini. Thank goodness I did that because my family has no sense of the concept of privacy! I got walked in on twice. Once by my Mom and once by my sister. They may not care if someone see's them naked but I do!

So my relaxing bath lasted for about 15 minutes.

I wont be doing that for a while.

Maybe If I would of pulled my old bath toys out it would of been better. I wonder where they are.

My Tragus

Me: Dad, I want a tattoo!
Dad: Don't get a tattoo. They look trashy.
Me: Thats why I want a tramp stamp! Nobody has to look at it except me...with a mirror.
Dad: I said trashy and you come back with tramp stamp?
Me: Fine no tattoo if you let me get my tragus pierced like soon.
Dad: (looks up from paper) Do I even want to know what a tragus is?
Me: Its part of my ear.
Dad: Thank goodness. Fine you can get your tragus pierced.

And that is how I convinced my Father to allow me to get my tragus pierced! I'm so excited! Actually, I was excited until I looked up a video on YouTube. It kind of freaked me out. So once I get that video out of my head then tragus piercing here I come!

Yesterday was rough.

My body and mind were not ready for the alarm clock going off at 6am. I was ready for another day of setting my alarm for 10am and turning it off the minute it went off. Then roll over and fall asleep until the AM turned to PM.

I did eventually roll out of bed and drag my feet upstairs. I even greeted my overly cheerful mother with a lovely glare. My mind couldn't properly put together something to say.

The entire day I struggled to stay up! Which was very difficult. It seemed like an extremely boring day compared to others. Maybe I just forgot how boring school was in general? I couldnt wait to go home and sleep!

Well it is 12:39am and I have yet to fall asleep.

What is up with that!?

My resolutions

I normally hate making resolutions but this year I'm making a few.
  • Be a better sister.
Being the big sister can be extremely annoying but I know that my little sister looks up to me. Today I played a game of nerf dart tag. The beginning of me becoming a better big sister. Spending quality time and shooting her at the same time. Its a win win situation.
  • Putting more effort into my relationships with my friends
Honestly I don't make a lot of time for my friends. Which I need to work on. Even if it means that I have to go ice skating again. ha
  • My Faith
My walk with God was such a rollarcoaster last year. One moment I could be on fire for Christ and the next God could be the last thing I thought about.
