My plans for the semester!

August 19, 2009

This is just to let you know that my parents have persuaded me very last-minute to take a trial semester at Bob Jones University. I want to keep in touch with everyone, but I hear that’s nearly impossible at college. I will do my best, though. 🙂 I’m sorry this is such short notice: I […]

Camp Quest incoherence

July 11, 2009

Last Sunday my pastor was talking about a camp for kids called Camp Quest. I did a little research (camp-quest.org) and read that “children of freethinking parents” will be able to better experience their free thought at this camp. I found this fascinating, especially considering the lengths to which atheists go to emphasize the point […]

weekly revelations, installment 1

May 12, 2009

I usually don’t publish them anywhere, but each week presents its own set of interesting and often surprising revelations. This week I had two…and I don’t remember one. So here, for my faithful yet exasperated readers, is that one thing. 🙂 1. Christianity doesn’t just die. Yes. That is it. 😀 And I’m proud of […]

On Christmas…

December 21, 2008

I finally got most of my Christmas shopping done! I know Christmas isn’t about buying the best presents for the least money, but that still feels ::really:: good. 🙂 I think that’s all for now. Christmas is coming, as is the annual trip to relatives’. This time it’s to my uncle’s. That’ll be cool…. (Obviously […]

wisdom lost!

December 16, 2008

Today has been interesting. I went in to get my wisdom teeth removed, and the doctor walked in shortly after the nurse had connected me to the IV. He said, “How are you?” and I said, “About to fall asleep.” And that’s the last thing I remember! (That was sweeeeet….) Actually, I do remember being […]

Never better than now….

December 5, 2008

:::gasp!!::: I just survived not one, but two mind-numbing hours of transcript work. X.x There’s a reason schools, not students, are the ones who usually put transcripts together. Homeschoolers, however, are very different…as they always are. In this case, though, that is definitely not a good thing. I really wish my record-keeping had been a […]

revenge

Habits, patterns, death, & loss

November 20, 2008

Today our dog died.  We hadn’t been quick enough to get her to the vet’s, and she was, indeed, very ill.  She was also very old, so anything a vet could have done would only have postponed the very imminent inevitable. It’s still really, really sad.  Yes, I didn’t appreciate the fact that she ate […]

on Bush & general respect for authority

November 16, 2008

The following are not my own words. I retrieved them from the November 5, 2008 Wall Street Journal (which my family is subscribed to). So don’t quote me on this as if I said it: whatever you think, feel free to comment here, just place the credit where it belongs. 😉 All the following emphases […]

Correct me if I’m wrong…

November 13, 2008

Ok!  So I recently shuffled through old stuff from the last two years…you know, stuff I wrote, drew, cut out of magazines….   ::sighs::   It’s odd:  I see things that are prophetic, things that are stupid, things that are insightful (there are a ::few::…), and some things that are actually wise.  I find the […]

electroshock therapy

November 9, 2008

Drove stick shift today.    Still in therapy.    Will write more later.    😀   Just kidding.  It wasn’t really that bad.  I learned really quickly…though I know I can use more practice.  Oh well…at least it’s a start. And since I have contacts now, I can finish my hours for my permit and […]

I have to mention this…

November 6, 2008

Yet another thing I’ve never thought about? The voting process.   I’ve never considered how much psychology went into voting! Voters can vote strategically, based on who they think will win even if that candidate is not their first choice…or they can vote sincerely based on their values, facing the facts that their candidate probably […]

kicking & screaming

November 5, 2008

There are many things you’ll never think about. For examples, please follow these thought processes… – It will be so great to see clearly! (the thing you never think about: Learning to deal with contacts or glasses) – It would be so great to have an African-American as president! (the thing the majority of us […]

election ’08

November 4, 2008

::sighs:: I am sick, yet again.  I am far too miserable to watch the election, and my throat feels like something’s eating it. But I MUST KNOW!!!!  Who will our next president be?   I think I may already know, and if it’s who I think it is, I may be packing to move as early […]

sometimes you have to ask yourself….(or not)

October 14, 2008

I should write more like my sister. 😉 …Or should I?  I mean, who knows who might read what I have to say?  Alas, further evidence that I know as well as anyone that old habits ::cough::paranoia::cough:: die hard….. …on my original topic…I was thinking about the topic of secret-keeping earlier, especially in conjunction with […]

breaking news!

September 23, 2008

Breaking news: The past is a jerk. It’s true. We did things then we regret now.  We didn’t do things then that we regret not doing now.  Overall, things were hard then, much as they are now…but we didn’t have the experience and understanding that we do now.  It’s relatively easy to think back over […]

random update on my life!

September 11, 2008

Hi everyone – Again, it has been much, much too long between this and my last updates!!!  So much has happened.  It’s been confusing at times and more than a little sad…. Basically, it boils down to this: This year, I’m officially home schooling again, though originally, I was going to attend a charter school […]

umm…I…apologize?

August 29, 2008

hey everyone – I really have to apologize for not posting in so long.  I think that since school has started, I will necessarily be putting more effort into school and chores and life in general outside of the computer.  So if you’d like an occasional update, feel free to email me if you have […]

4th…

July 4, 2008

So…I needed to tell everyone to have a happy 4th of July…and to ask everyone to please remember how it is the U.S. really came to be such a great nation (hint: it isn’t because we have such great ideas all the time…).

contention, part 1

June 20, 2008

So I’ve been thinking about this for awhile.   Since I started attending a charter school (last year), I’ve been hearing a lot of things I hadn’t been familiar with.  I don’t mean words like “sick,” either, that are just a case of ::coolness::. No, I mean cursing.    Some words are clearly cursing.  Considering that […]
