oh hi. back from the dead.

Well, it's been almost 2 months since my last blog post. Meh. You win some you lose some.

Quick re-cap of my life. (Including a few pictures. I'll do a major picture re-cap later, which can include more than this post can. I find it much easier to look at lots of pictures that describe things than to look at lots of words that describe things.)

-I completed everything on my August to-do list except start college applications and re-memorize the Bible verses from camp. Those are two of the things that I wish I had done the most. But hey, procrastination is my middle name. Therefore, college applications will most likely start in October. By the way, UNC early application is due in October. (See sentence about procrastination being my middle name.) And about the memory verses...yeah, I need to get on that. No excuses there.


-Psychology is awesome. English is ridiculous.

-Basketball season has officially begun. Praise the Lord.

-The last 2 times I've been to Moe's I've gotten free queso. Holla.

-Moe's is one of my favorite places on earth. John Coctostan Quesadilla. Every time. Also...free unlimited chips and salsa. If that doesn't make you want to go I don't know what will.

-To those of you who either don't like Moe's or who have never been to Moe's: I am sorry.

-I read "Kisses from Katie". So good. I recommend it to you. To anyone. Definitely puts life in perspective.

-I read "Choosing to See" by Steven Curtis Chapman's wife. Really easy read. I laughed a lot. And a couple of tears may have even fallen from my eyes.

-I've read about half of "Manhunt: the 12 Day Search for Lincoln's Killer". It's a really fat book and it's taking me a while to get through it. Unfortunately my schedule that is filled with basketball, school, Jesus, and ample Facebook-stalking time does not lend to much quality pleasure-reading time. But remember about ten sentences ago when I told you that my English class is ridiculous? Well, it all works out for me. The teacher talks about nonsense for an hour while I eat PB&J sandwiches and read my book...with my fellow classmates laughing at me in disbelief. Don't worry, Mom. I have an A in the class. And I'm pretty sure I'm gonna keep it.

-Megan Easter hosted a birthday party for herself complete with sour gummy worms, putt putt, a fire truck, star-gazing, tacos, secrets, and a bonfire. It was legit. Not to mention that I had 3 hole-in-ones...the last of which not only scored me a free game of putt putt but also an 11-year-old boy's number. Apparently he was impressed with my skills. [Wilderness Man: we will have a rematch.]

-I changed my college plans. No worries, I still want to be a Tar Heel. But I think I've changed my mind back to math, as opposed to elementary. Not that anyone cares. But I just thought you should know.

-My wonderful brother and sister-in-law came to chill in Greensboro for the weekend. I kinda like them. I think I'll keep them around.

-The aforementioned wonderful people got a house. Well, technically they're getting a house in 2 days..or something like that. But it's practically a done deal. And it's gorgeous. And I already have a bedroom that is calling my name for numerous sleepovers.

-My parents (who are equally as wonderful) and I spent Saturday evening with Jordan Ashley. Jordan&Dad: NC State football game. Mom&Ashley&myself: packing up the apartment for the upcoming move. All of us: quality time at the Hamiltons' (also wonderful people).

-Homeschool football games. Sort of intense. Sort of.

-Shared the gospel with roughly 40 people at the Greensboro fair. Awesome, needless to say.

-Had one of the best weekends of my life at Camp Hope. Nathan Bramsen.Rachel Langston.Laura Batten.Lydia Meadows.etc.etc. And the Holy Spirit was there too. He was definitely there. Like never before. Actually I've never been to Camp Hope before...but I can imagine that He was there like never before. Because He was there BIG time. Changed my life. Literally. Praise the good Lord.

-Week at the beach with Mom, Dad, Joe, and Rachel. Such a good week. So many good times and good memories. [Dad secretly cracking up while watching the Suite Life on Deck. Rachel putting her handy-man skills to good use and fixing the bike. Britt's donuts. Hoover ball. Rachel sleep talking: "Sorry for being Egyptian." Just to name a few.]

Much, much more has happened but those are a few of the things that I could remember. And I have to stop writing before people stop reading.

Oh also...9 more days till I see Harvey and Danielle. Everybody put your hands in the air.
