Puerto Rico

Yesterday we went to Puerto Rico for the day. First time flying, by the way. On the flight over, almost everyone spoke Spanish. My dad kept asking me if I could understand any of the Spanish words, and pretty much the only things I understood were "bathroom", "sky", and different numbers. Anyway, it was very pretty, and there were lots of very tame cats. Oh, and there were a ton of people flying kites, which was neat.

And that orange sherbert looking thing - that's pineapple ice cream. Weird, huh?

We headed out on the boat this weekend. I found the seat to be a great place to curl up. There were a lot of gigantic, clear jellyfish. And we got attacked by a palmetto bug. Typical.

a pillar of fire by night, of cloud by day


The rocky ledge runs far into the sea,
   And on its outer point, some miles away,
The Lighthouse lifts its massive masonry,
   A pillar of fire by night, of cloud by day.
Even at this distance I can see the tides,
   Upheaving, break unheard along its base,
A speechless wrath, that rises and subsides
   In the white lip and tremor of the face.
And as the evening darkens, lo! how bright,
   Through the deep purple of the twilight air,
Beams forth the sudden radiance of its light
   With strange, unearthly splendor in the glare! 
 Excerpt from The Lighthouse by Henry Wadson Longfellow

Hello. What's up?

I started guitar. I sorta know some of the notes, so I've been trying to figure out how to play some songs. Yesterday I played some of Tenth Avenue North's "You Are More" and today I played Chris Rice's "Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus)"...not very well, of course, but I figured out most of the notes. (And - this is random - I don't really get the name of that song, but whatever.)  It wasn't that hard, but the strings hurt your fingers. =)

Tonight I have volleyball camp.

And I'm sure you all want to hear some great songs, RIGHT!?????? Yes, you totally do.

By the way, if the last song doesn't work, sorry. For some reason it only works sometimes. =)

I was going to post!

I was going to post. I was going to post of the roach that crawled on me in a dark car, about finishing my books, about all different things that I totally cannot remember at the moment. But I didn't. And I'm sorry.

Happy Valentines Day! Hopefully I'll be posting more often! Hopefully....

random/orthodontist stuff

hey people. i'm actually getting around to posting!

so today i went to the orthodontist. i had to get impressions, which wasn't that bad. i did get a mirror jammed up into the roof of my mouth so the lady could take pictures, though, which was a little painful. then i got the impression stuff on my cheeks (kinda weird and random!). they have a counter in the hallway with two sinks and so i went out there so spit out all the extra pink goo (this is so lovely, right?!). there was a kid standing there brushing his teeth (looking normal, unlike me), and we stared at each other awkwardly and he watched my look like an idiot. great stuff, right? i would have preferred nobody seeing me, but whatever. and then i came home and did school. and i have not read my wonderful books yet today! oh my, something is wrong! i'm almost finished with the first series, which is pretty terrible. there are two other series, though, so all the awesomeness isn't over yet! =)

what not to wear is on tonight. (you needed to hear that - along with all the other pointless nonsense in this post.)

i decided to post some songs i like. hope ya enjoy.
