WOW! Talk about not blogging in ages. Well anyways a lot has happened and most of it has been an adventure. Just wanted to stop by and say MERRY CHRISTMAS! and probably HAPPY NEW YEAR! I probably won't blog until then.

I'm blogging.... thinking about actually doing my homework.... just kidding actually I almost have it all done except typeing it up. Lately I have been very stressed over various things in which I won't discuss over blogger and am just trying to keep sane and not turn into a biting venomous snake. Marching season is almost over and honestly I think we are going to do really poorly. We have a new director the rest of my section don't know the whole field show so I am having do dram them through the mud and get myself the most muddy, by playing till my lungs are about to break, and manage to march all at the same time. I have started this new course in the Hadley school. It is really interesting it is showing how to read and write in Braille math. I am kind of confused but hey it is the only second time that I have looked at the material. It is totlly run by my instructor who I believe wrote the book and dictated the tapes. Well I guess I am done griping I will get back to m;y homework so I can take my midterm. So long hopefully the next time it won't take me so long to blog.

It has been crazy with school starting and band practice and just everything going on in my life. On the first day of school we were assigned a 6 page paper due in 5 days. That was definately a late one to write. Band has been chaotic because of the new band director but under the curcomstances he is doing very well. I have the opener to the fieldshow memorized except four measures. I am going to be on the field playing the piccolo instead of the mallets this year. I have all new teachers except for three. The first five classes that I have are all taught by female teachers. I think that is really ironic. My scheduel goes as follows: precalculus, government, spanish 2, study skills- to fill out applications-, girls conditioning, CPEIV (college Placement English Four) then my favorite class band. Well sorry this is kind of short compared to the amount of time that I haven't blogged but I have lots of homework. I will try toblog more often I promise.

This week was band camp. The first three days we did drill basics and music. Today we put 7 sets on the field. This brought us up to measure i believe 45 in the music. We have a new band director and a new fieldshow from the origional poto (phantom Of The Opera). It is now a field show called flight. The music has nothing to do with it but I guess the dirll does. Next week on Wednesday I start school. I am really excited.

I know I know I haven't blogged in... let's see over a week. The computers where I was staying got taken away for maintenence and I got home about four days ago and just plain haven't had time. I got to fly on a plane for the first time by myself. I sat next to a grandfather and his grandson who were playing cribbage and fighting over how many points each of them forgot to count in their own hand. It was really funny. I am home now safe and sound. I didn't know that the nearest airport to where I live is so big. If I hadn't had someone help me around I would have gotten lost. Yesterday a very special friend came to stay with me for a while. Her name is J.J. (Jo-anne Jane) and she is from Florida. She is not sure how long she is going to stay here. Today she took me out for ice cream at Cold Stone. Man is their ice cream filling. It was awsome. I had cheesecake delight with cheesecake ice cream strawberries and blueberries. Well I am really tired but all of you that read this should read The Poinson Wood Bible by: Barbara Kingsolver. It is a great book about the Congo and a minister trying to prosalide there.

The camping trip was lots of fun. The group that I was in went over to an island and stayed in a state park. There was lots of trees and some deer as well. There was one deer that came about 10 feet from our car and let us take lots of pics. Of course we roasted marshmellows and had smores. One of the fun things was that we got to go kiaking. I really didn't have that much fun though because I got sea sick. I was really nausiated and I guess when I got off the boat I looked really pale. Also I am not the kiaking type so all in all that part of the camping trip for me was not fun al all. It seemed like everyone else that went on the camping trip had fun in the kiaks though. For dinner one night we had chicken and rice burritos. I didn't like the rice though. There was some type of seasoning that made the rice spice. To me rice jus should not be spicy when all you have with it is chicken. It was really cold on the camping trip. I had about 3 layers on and I was still cold so I ended up sitting by the fire alot. Riding the fairy was kind of fun in the fafft that we were on water and yet the fairy hardly rocked at all. While on the fairy I played lots of cards with my friends and just sat around and talked. All in all the camping trip was an experience I will never forget both good and bad.

The status on the web site yesterday is that my boss was totally not worried at all. He was actually really cool about it. That made me feel good. After returning from work I did my chore which was cleaning the showers and counters and then I went down to the Ave. There I got $$$ at the bank and deposited my check. Then I went down to a second hand store and got lots of CDs for really cheap. They were totally random CDs that had really cool CD covers. Then I went to a mexican restraunt that was family owned. It was really expensive so I don't think I will go there again. After that I went to a grocery store and bought cameras, chap stick and sunglasses. I lost my sunglasses sorry mom. I think I lost them at the beach. Today I saw Charley and he had a yellow lab as a guide dog. He went to guide dogs for the blind in Boring, Oregon. I also met another person that had a yellow lab but she got her guide dog at the seeing eye in New Jersey. I had a great conversation with both of them comparing and contrasting the programs that each of them went to.

My boss took me out to lunch today at a deli. We had sandwiches. He had a salami and pastomi sandwich while I got a ham and turkey sandwich. For a drink I had an orange soda while my boss had a rootbeer. Once we finished our lunches we both had backlava.
After we returned back to work my boss left. When he left I got on my other bosses computer and started looking up scholorships. In order to find out more information about that scholarship you have to click on the link. There was a scholarship that I wanted to look at that was for blind individuals. When I clicked on the link it was a bad site. It took me a while to figure it out though because all it had was text. You would read the text and then have to click on icons to go to even worse information. I called my boss to let him know but I couldn't get ahold of him. After trying multiple times I ended up calling my boss that gave me lunch today. He told me to turn off the computer and he would fix it tomarrow. I seriously thought I was going to get into major trouble because I heard that people get fired for that sort of thing. It was a really good thing that he didn't get mad at me. This was majorly stressful.
After work I came home and talked to the organizer of the organization that I am working with about what happened at work today. He explained that even little kids when they are doing reports for school come across bad websites and that it wasn't a big deal. That made me feel a lot better.

It is ridiculously hot here!!! As far as temperature wise it is about 10 degrees cooler than where I normally live but the humidity is unbearanle. We were going to go to Bite Through Seattle but it is so hot that we decided to just hang around the house and play games and read books. I went out to pizza for lunch and that was really good. I slept downstairs last night because it was about 20 degrees hotter on the third floor than the first floor. In the staff log all they wrote was "It was a hot night." along with a bunch of required stuff. I thought that this was pretty funny. Well, I talked to my friends since it is the weekends and they are doing well. I'll blog sometime hopefully when it cools down some.

Friday, July 21, 2006

Sorry I haven't posted inthe last couple of days. I have had a lot going on with friends and really didn't feel like writing those issues down. Yesterday we had a house meeting to duscuss how we have been doing on our chores and how there is only two weeks left in the program. When I went to the recording studio on Tuesday we got to record a man named Mike who played tow songs and we almost got those two songs recorded. That is amazing because it usually takes twice as long if you are being an engineer for the first time. Useing JAWS for a recording program was quite the experience. It isn't that hard once you get all the keystrokes programmed into your brain. There are so many keystrokes that the left and right shift keys mean totally different things. Yesterday me and my friend Lucy went to a Italian Soda Joint and talked for a while. We really needed to get out of the house. Both of us were mad because of situation at our living quarters and we just had to get away to recharge our emotional batteries. Yesterday was also my friend Sam's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM! I called Sam to wish him a happy birthday. Mostly my week has been going well except for the friend situation which got resolved yesterday which makes me really happy. I will blog tonight if anything extremely exciting happens otherwise you will see me tomarrow.

I had a really bad dream last night. It was about me being on an abandoned island without any communication with the outside world. I was all alone on the island without even turtles to keep me company. I slowly went crazy and started hearing voices in my head. At first I ignored the voices but after a while I couldn't ignore them because they wouldn't go away. All the voices were doing was calling my name and telling me to get home. It was awful. A few weeks past and then I started talking back to the voices. My dream ended where I was totally engolfed with the voices of my insanity and I couldn't hear anything in the outside world. I told my boss what happened in the dream and he told me that it was my subconsious trying to tell my brain kthat it is stretching the limits of not communicating all day. It was a very interesting conversation that we had.
Today both my bosses were at work so I didn't go insane. I actually got to talk with people besides the individuals on the phone. My boss took me out to eat at an italian place. I had a veggi pizza. It was really good. Then I got to play on the zip line which is a cable about six feet in the air that you use a bar and hold onto it with your hands and go down to the bottom of the line about 20 feet away. It was really fun. Then I got to swing on the monkey bars before getting into the car to go home. I am so glad my boss let me play before we had to get busy again.
After having lunch me and my boss went to QFC (Quality Food Center) which is like an Albersons. I had never been into QFC and so my boss took me on a little tour. While there we got some samples of chocolate-oatmeal-raisin cookies. Man were they good.
Yesterday at the music studio I had the chance to be an engineer. I got to control the computer and the playback The playback is when you talk to the artists that are in the other room recording. The computer records the sound and lets you change the echo of the sound. There is a type of program that is like the engineering program but it is called SONIC. It uses a screen reader so that the blind can be music engineers. That is how I got to work with the computer. Without this program it would be impossible for the blind to do this job since you need to be sighted to use the other program.

Today I woke up at 4am in the morning to watch the STP bike riders start off at the UW stadium. My boss was in this race. This race goes from Seattle to Portland. This is 200 miles. Some people do this race in one day and some other people do it in two days. There were so many bikers at the stadium that when my friend was driving me that she had a hard time not getting squashed by the pack of bikers. It was fun being up early and feeling the wind in my face. I liked being able to cheer everyone on in a goal that is very healthy goal.

Wednesday, July 12, 2006

After work, work went fine, I went home and hung around for a while until Feed Your Head started. Feed Your Head is when a group of peop0le who feeds the whole group and then we have a speaker afterwards. The speaker tonight talked about the NFB and how it works. That was kind of a boring meeting but that is ok. Then me and my friend talked about stuff. I got cookies from my boss today and they were really good. They were oatmeal and raisin. Yesterday when I went to Jack Straw we made sound scapes. This is when you take sound and make a picture. There were seven sounds that I used. One of them I made up myself. I took a perscription bottle and a pen cap. I rubbed the pen ca over the ridges really fast and it ended up making like a match starting sound. It was fun. In my sound scape I was really having fun and the soundscape was very random. Does this sound familiar. I am really random so when we produce the CD at the end of this program it will be easy to tell which one is my sound scape. I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich for lunch. It was really good and I am glad I used the bananas because they were starting to go bad.

Tuesday, July 11, 2006

At work it was a much better day. I didn't get yelled at and my boss gave me a cookie and walked me down to the bus stop. I missed the first bus that comes after work but I got to meet a really cool chinese lady. Then I went down to the Ave and got one of my friends pics developed and had pizza. I looked at a bookstore and was going to buy Death Of A Salesman b/c it was only 95 c but when I went to pay for it it ended up being $4.95. Someone hadn't crossed off the price on the back. I bet lots of people are really confused b/c the price tags are in the front cover. Earlier in my blog I mentioned going on a coffee run. I have not taken up the habit of coffee but the staff does drink coffee and so that is what I called it. None of us got coffee anyway. We all got slushies.

Monday, July 10, 2006

I had a rough day at work today. It is my job to answer the phones and the person on the other line asked if we had something. Of course I had no idea and told him that my boss could get back with him. He started yelling at me saying that if I was going to work there I needed to know my stuff. That was really not fun at all. During lunch today I had two sandwiches and then my boss made me borritos. They were good. I am now going to go to a sound studio.

Sunday, July 09, 2006

I slept in till 11 am. Then I got ready for the day and went to the beach. I didn't swim because I just wasn't in the mood. After hanging out at the beach I went home and had hotdogs and rice. That was really good.

Yesterday I went for a coffee run at like 6 pm. One of the staff just wanted to get out of the house. The staff member and a few other people besides me went to Yunnies. This is like a iced tea/coffee/icy/smoothy place. I got a strawberry Icy and so didn't my friend. The staff member got a strawberry/mango icy with tapiokas in it. Another one of my friends got a chocolate milk shake. The chocolate milk shake looked really good.

Friday, July 07, 2006

It was quite unusual sitting at the office alone when I didn't expect to be alone. I called my boss to check in with him and asked when he was going to be in. Guess what? He said he wasn't going to be in today. I only had to work 3 hours today as a receptionist. The other 3 hours I sat in a chair listening to people talk about the interview process. That was sort of fun. Really glad I got paid for it though. Wouldn't want to do it if I didn't get paid.

Thursday, July 06, 2006

It was really interesting having the whole office to myself today. Both my bosses were out on business today so I had to answer the phones and take messages all by myself. It was a little nerve wracking when they both left but they checked in twice during the day. I went on my lunch break and my boss called and left a message saying I did a great job and how professional I was. That really made me feel good. I will be all alone tomarrow but I think I can handle it now. I don't thinkl I have to worry.

Wednesday, July 05, 2006

Today was my first day of work. I definately have a lot to learn about being a secratary. It was fun though. I got to take messages and talk to people. Like everyone else I made a mistake today. I answered the phone and there was a client on that could not speak English very well and the English that they did speak was so accented that I couldn't understand anything they said. After having them repeat the phone number 4 times I asked if my boss was busy (without putting the person on hold) and asked him to take the call. Afterwards he said that that was as bad as it wold ever get and that they were the exception to lthe rule. Man I was really glad for that.

Tuesday, July 04, 2006

Today I read my English book Death Of A Salesman. It is a good book. I just hung around the house and talked to my friend. All in all it has been kind of a boring day but that is ok. I like having boring days sometimes.

These are just some cool pics of fireworks and the american flag. Hope you enjoy. I will post later on in the day to tell you what I did to celebrate this special day.

Sleeping was really great today. I slept in till about 11 a.m. After wasting half my day in bed I ate Captain Crunch for breakfast and then had a grilled cheese sandwich and doritoes for lunch. Since there are only a few of us at the house we decided to go to the mall and I found it really boring because there were hardly any shops that didn't consist of clothes clothes and more clothes. I found it rather boring. I came back home and went to the store to pick up some personal items. I took a shower and now am planning on going to bed. Good Night Everyone!!!

This is a picture of the Salt Lake Temple of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. I really like this pic because of the beauty of the building and the feelings that I get when I walk on the grounds of the temple.

Today I went to church. One of my friends drove me there and then I met a couple of people to walk home with. Church was a lot of fun. We learned about the importance of reading Psalms so we can get a better understanding of the revelations about christ before he came to the Earth.

After church I did somel laundry and used a different type of soap than I am used to. I hope I am not allergic to it because I don't want to end up with a rash for six weeks. That would not be fun.

Saturday, July 01, 2006


SafeWay is the close store to where I live and I decided to go there to get my groceries. I got milk and cereal and other stuff. I went with a friend and on the way back we got lost. We ended up going like a mile past the house. That was really not fun for us since we had to carry all our food back and I had cans of fruit jabbing in my back. After a while we recognized some streets and found our way home. I like going exploring but not in a city that I don't know.

Friday, June 30, 2006

Taking the bus to workisn't necessarily fun but that is how I am going to get to work next week. I have to cross an intersection when I go home and that is what I worked on today. I messed up though because I went with the left turning cars instead of the cars going straight. Oh well I have only crossed that intersection 3 times.

I am going to blog for yesterday as well as today. Yesterday I walked around town and rode the bus to my work site. Then I went to my friends work site and he will be working at a library. It is 9 stories high. I didn't know a library could be that big. After that I came home and had tacos and played soccer with about 5 pepole. It was lots of fun. When almost everyone was going to a comedy place I decided to play hearts with the staff. I had never played hearts before and that was lots of fun.

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

Instead of walking around town like we have been doing for the last couple of days we went into the woods with a progam and worked on team building skills. Playing the name game is what we ended up doing at the beginning of the time we were in the woods. We had a tire that we had to climb through that was 10 feet off the ground. Also we had cables that we had to walk on with a partner. Another activity was that we had to take a ball and get it through the pattern that we had made earlier in the fastest time possible. My group got that done in 4 1/2 seconds. We ended up making a railroad track with our arms and it seemed to work great with practice. The first time we did it it took 56 seconds. That is a really big inprovement.

Probably tthe best part of going to this adventure is being able to watch how people react to different situations. Some people were really hesitant to trust the group and others were just able to het in there and be comfortable.

I just got back to house that I am staying at and we had potatoes for dinner with all the condiments. I put butter, sour cream, and cheese on mine. Man it was good.

Tuesday, June 27, 2006

Chores: They were handed out today for the first time. Each student digs into a bag and picks out a card which has a chore written on it. I got to clean thte bathroom so it was really easy and there was no tub since it was downstairs where I live and all the rooms are upstairs.

The Ave: I went to The Ave with the YES group. We went on a scavenger hunt to find different shops on The Ave. Then I went with a couple of friends to get a fan and some other personal items.

Busses: I also learned my bus route to my job as a secratary and I got to meet my boss in person. This was really good. He seems really nice.

Other than that I haven't done much beside go outside of the house and listen to music.

Well yesterday I traveled on the local bus system for the first time where I am staying and the group that I am will all got reduced fair cards since we are blind. We walked a lot yesterday and it kind of got tiresom sonce it was so hot. Also I only drank 2 cups of water the who.e day. Man was that stupic. I was really dehydrated yesterday.

Sunday, June 25, 2006

Well I was talking about guide dogs yesterday and the link is www.leaderdog.org. Talk to you soon.

Well I have reached my destination. The place that I am staying at has no air conditioning since the people that usually live here don't live here during the summer. I am pretty much unpacked except for my sheets since some of my friends are staying with me. This week is probably going to be really boring as far as my blog goes but I will blog anyway.

Saturday, June 24, 2006

Well I am 3/4 of the way to my destination. I am officially sick of the car and the seat that I was sitting on for like 5 hours. I am staying at a friends house and will finish the rest of the car ride to my destination tomarrow.

Also I am in search for a guide dog school. There are two that I have narrowed down to. One is called Leader Dogs and is recognized as the second best school in the world. The dogs there can be trained to lead a deaf blind person by learning sign language themselves. This is only one of a very few schools in the world that offers this type of program. Although I don't need this service I thought it was interesting information This school is located in Michagan I believe. I am looking into this school because it is well reognized so it must be good and the testimonials seem honest and each of them is unique. The other school is called Guide Dogs. They are located in California and another site in Boring, Oregon. I would like to go to this school because they have a good post graduate program. They check in with you every year via phone and if they need to they will make a home visit.

Friday, June 23, 2006

Look guys I am actually blogging and I am still alive. I am going on a great adventure for the next six weeks. I am going away from my home and farther away than like an hour. It is quite scarry. I am really excited about it though because I am going to a larger city than I have been to. I will be working through a program for visually impaired people and I will be doing secretarial work. I have never done this type of work before so I really don't know what to expect. I am leaving on this great adventure away from home tomarrow and will be blogging from there. Talk to you soon.

There are so many choices that we have to make in this world. Some will effect us for just a small period of time and others will effect us for the rest of our lives. For example: It really doesn't matter what I wear today in prospective to ten years from now. In ten years I probably won't even remember what I wore today. For the sake of the record I am wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Yet there are other decisions that are going to effect your life and the lives of others around you. There is the choice of what you want to major in in college, or if you want pets when you have kids, or who your friends are going to be, or who you are going to marry. All of these decisions are going to effect you in one way or another even if you don't want to admit it. For example: lets say I want to major in nursing. I will expect long hours on the job and not much family time. This is going to be very hard on my marriage and on my kids. This is why I am making these very important decisions carefully because I know it will effect me for years and even generations to come.

THE CAKE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS BLOG BUT IT LOOKED REALY TASTY!!
Have you ever recieved an award or completed a great accomplishment? I have and it feels great. I went to an awards assembly and recievd an award for being a great student. I really like that feeling walking across the stage and recieving a handshake and a certificate. I can't wait till I get to college and recieve my Bachelors degree. That is going to be the greatest feeling ever.

Here is a poem that I wrote.
Frogs
They Jump They go ribit ribit
They're green
Some are smooth and some are warty.
Visually I like the warty ones.
By feeling I like the smooth ones.
Frogs have long tongues to catch flies.
When they eat flies it it nasty.
If I could change something about frogs they would eat bananas.

February is the month of love but it is also Black History Month. There, now you have a little bit of information that you can tell your friends and coworkers.

Wednesday, February 08, 2006

I found a really cool game that you might want to check out.

Materials:
1. Paper
2. Pencil
3. Imagination
4. Humor

How To Play:
1. Take the piece of paper and pencil and write a sentence.
2. Fold the paper so you can't see the sentence that you just wrote and hand it to someone in the room.
3. Once that person gets the paper they repeat steps 1 and 2.
4. At the end of the game (which is whenever you feel like) unfold the paper and read it. You will get some laughs.

Example
red is one person and blue is another.

One day I was walking towards the school cafeteria. (fold and pass) You should have seen the look on his face when I threw a spitwad at him. (fold and pass) When I got there it was full. (fold and pass) Hey look at the spider on the wall. (fold and pass) He just threw a burrito at me. (fold and pass) The eight legged creature just caught me in its web. etc.etc.


I hope you get the idea. I explained it the best that I could.

Sunday, January 01, 2006

Sorry I haven't posted in ages. I recieved this mesage via email and thought it should be shown to the world. At least those who actually read my blog. Sorry the pictures are bad.











Life is made up of 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you respond to it." A carrot, an egg and a cup of coffee...You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again....... A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose. Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil, without saying a word. In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out andplaced them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see." "Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied. Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg. Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as he tasted its rich aroma. The daughterthen asked, "What does it mean, mother?" Her mother explained that eachof these objects had faced the same adversity.. boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting.However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened andbecame weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boilingwater, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique,however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water."Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on yourdoor, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?"Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength? Am Ithe egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat?Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does myshell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart? Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, itreleases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when thingsare at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean? May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy. The happiest people don't always have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward inlife until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying. You should send this to people who mean something to you, to those who have touched your life in one way or another; to those who make you smile when youreally need it; to those who make you see the brighter side of thingswhen you are really down; to those whose friendship you appreciate; to those who are so meaningful in your life. It's easier to build a child than to repair an adult . . . may we all be COFFEE!!

Lord Make Me A Rock
Lord make me a rock
that thou can lean on
when you are weak.

Make me a rock
a rock in that garden.
The one where you suffered.
Make me a rock to lift you up.
Lord you have given me so much
let me give.

Make me a rock
that is perfect for you.
You need not suffer anymore.
My hard surface let it not be rough.
Let me help you
Like you have helped me.

I thought this picture was very unique. A carpenter made this coach with horses out of wood. I think that it is a really cool picture because it is wood in water. Usually when you put wood in water it rots. Mainly the reason that I like this photo is because of the character that it has.

Another animal that I like is reindeer. These are really cool animals because according to myth they assist santa claus with the present delivery. Also they can fly and they don't have wings. This is the best part of all. Does anyone know how to deleate comments once you have read them?

Butterflies are such interesting insects. They fly through the sky and land on plants yet you never seem to hear them. This is also a common feature of some other types of birds. When a butterfly flutters past you would never know it if you weren't looking. This is the collest thing about these amazing two winged insects.

I would like to explain why on my website it reads "The thoughts of a teenager..." This is because I am still learning and my thoughts are not set into stone. My blog will continually show how I am growing (emotionally, physically, spiritually, and mentally) along with really cool other stuff that I find out along this adventure called life.
