Early Release!

So today was an early release. Meaning we got out of school at noon. It was great. Except I didn't have anyone to hang out with. All of my friends were either doing homework or were hanging out with boyfriends (I don't exactly enjoy being the third wheel). So i sat at home in my misery.

And then I got over myself and ended up hanging out (and having dinner with) a friend from down the street. It's been month since I'd last seen her. When I last laid eyes upon her 5th grader-ness, she was awkward. But now she has blossomed into a beautiful young lady. Ahhh, the things you miss when you are cooped up inside starting at swimming black markings on blindingly white pages.

Then, once the dinner plates had been cleared and her mother had proclaimed that she needed to begin studying for a Spanish test, I left.

But the night was not yet over.

I ended up hanging out with my friend (Hi!) and his family. We went to get ice-cream and then we sat around. He and I went into the street and played frisbee for hours.

This was the most fun I've had in a while! Thank you both of you!!

I get very bored in Chemistry class, so I spend the time writing poems. I felt that this one was Blog worthy!

Do You Know Me?

Have you met me before?
Yes. You have. But,
Do you know me?

Not your idea of me.
My idea of me.
My thoughts.
My dreams.

Do you know the photographer?
Who walks everywhere,
Seeing things in contrast
And elements of a photo.

Do you know the dancer?
Who feels strong and powerful.
And graceful.
Only when she's onstage.

Do you know the pianist?
Who sits down and plays
The music of her heart,
While scribbling it down.

Do you know the actress?
Who stays in black but
Only wishes to be in the

Do you know the singer?
Who only sings sweet melodies
When no one can hear.
She hopes they can hear.

Do you know the friend?
Who'll listen no matter what.
Who'll answer her phone at
Any hour. Any.

Do you know the dreamer?
Who dreams and dreams
Everything that won't come true.
But still dreams.

Do you know the poet?
Who thinks and dreams of words
Pouring out of her fingers
Scrambing to find paper.

Do you know me?
The real me?
I don't think you do.

I Miss You All!

Last week was my school's play and I decided to join the crew. At first I wasn't sure if i really wanted to. But know I know it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

I met people that I would have never met. I became friends with some of the nicest people I'll ever meet. But most of all, I had fun.

Running around the stage. Laughing. Smiling. Talking. Dancing. And singing. I had fun. Perfect, unadulterated fun.

I made lasting friendships.

If anyone reading this was in the cast or crew of the play, I want you to know that I thank you. For all the fun we had. For the laughs we shared. And for all of the friendships that will continue on.

I miss you all!

Thanks for the fun!

I’m not a religious person. Never have been, and probably never will be. I was never baptized and I’ve never gone to church (with the few exceptions of going to my friend’s church). I’ve never attended any holiday church service, but my family celebrates holidays own way.

Like today, for instance. The crazy-ass idea about a rabbit hiding eggs around your house (where he got the eggs I don’t want to know). For some reason this rabbit and his basket of eggs makes yearly visits to my house. And this year was no exception.

I came down my grandmothers stairs (Can you believe that pesky rabbit? He followed me!), to find pastel plastic eggs scattered about the house. I was handed a plastic bag and told that there were twelve this year. And a few random lambs. So I went about searching for them (it was much more fun when I was little and I actually had problems finding said eggs).

About five minutes later when my plastic bag was weighed down with twelve eggs and 3 misshapen chocolate lambs, I went about cracking open these eggs to find (to my surprise!) Starburst jelly beans and chocolate eggs. I then packed myself up and went about my day (with my bag by my side, of course).

Whatever you did this Easter (Sitting on a hard bench listening to a sermon or sitting around the house growling at anyone who came within a 3 foot radius of your plastic bag full of sweets), I hope you enjoyed it!

Happy Easter!

P.S. A note to the photo:
My uncle decided that I needed to have some Peeps for Easter, and since they are the worst things since... well... anything (sorry Peep lovers) I took "artsy" photos of them!

If any of you were wondering (though you might not have even thought about it), the picture at the top isn't just some random picture that I found on the "internets." It's actually a picture that I took myself! I pride myself on the ability to point my camera at some tree/flower/person/thing and being able to end up with something that doesn't look like complete crap!

This specific picture is of a tree that I walked by when I was walking home. Normally I don't bring my camera to school, but for some reason I did that day. So when I was walking home I saw this tree and decided to take some pictures of it. I did edit it a little, but for the most part I didn't do that much to it.

I will be adding more pictures onto my blog. I will also be asking for some advice on how I can improve, or just which ones you like!
