Give Us Peace!

People wonder why I hate these:
Peace signs. Whether it's in a circle or not, I despise these. But why? I'll tell you right now.

It is the sign of the devil.

And I'm not kidding. I've researched and talked to friends. That is why I am not allowed to wear these and probably---voluntarily---never will. And my kids will not be allowed either.

Alvin and the Chipmunks 2! Beep ba beep ba beep beep beep!! LoL

I saw Alivin and the Chipmunks, but not just Alvin., but number 2 with my friend Becca and her family from homeschool group! It was so funny!

At first we didn't make it into the theater because it was so full. And it was Tuesday. So we had to sit out for two hours waiting for the next showing.

It was hilarious! Here is the meaning of the movie:

The chipmunks are at a concert and something happens (Btw you don't want to read this if you didn't see the movie!) and so they break Dave's neck and leg. Dave puts them in high school...

So somehow Alvin gets put on the football team. He doesn't make it to the talent show and the chips get mad at him and Theodare starts crying... (my fav. chip!)

So they meet the chipETTES. Brittany, Jennette, and the fat one, Eleanor. They sing Single Ladies, LoL!

So yada yada yada, there's a happy ending and the rest I can't really explain.

I was so suprised at the people I saw! Melyndee from church, Hayden from level 5, Megan and Marissa from level 3, but not so sure the twins and Hayen remembered me. (Megan and Marissa are twin---identical---sisters.)

I Keep Forgeting...

Hey Hey Hey I like, totally forgot to tell you... I got this curling-iron system for Christmas called Hot Sticks, and they are AWESOME! It's like an iron, but instea of stainless steel, it is shaped like a curler and looks like one. you wrap your hair around it, and YES, you must touch it. You wrap your hair around like you would with a curler, and put it in a loop. Gorgeus curls in fifteen minutes!

Stickin' It!

I'm practicing back handsprings right now! I have perfect back handsprings, it's just I don't jump enough and I don't look at my hands. I want to go back to class with the skill perfected!

I bought a new shirt for that day. It is from Aeropostale and says [of course] "Aeropostale" on it on the left side vertically with some cursive writing under it. It's pink too, the color I wear most! LoL! Most of you guys know me very well and see me like, every Sunday and Wednesday, or at least used to, so you know I always wear pink, unaware of it! If you saw me on the street, you could point out something pink. I'm a huge girly girl!

How was your Christmas? Mine was awesome, got a digital camera, the "toy" I wanted most!!!! And Jesus was born on that day, and even if he wasn't, who cares anyway? At least he was born!

Friday, December 25, 2009


I got a digital camera! So, first thing is i'm gonna do a Christmas/Santa episode. Yay! So now, my other blog, is officially a web show!

Going Back

Well i'm on break right now for both school and athletics, and am---surpisingly---not bored.

My back handsprings have gotten MUCH better. Did you listen to my music? Let me know! I plan on going back to class on the fourth day of the new year and getting a back handspring by myself!

Please can you do a favor for me?

Okay, here's the task, do you know any cheerleaders? People who want to be cheerleaders? Gymnasts? Fans of gymnastics? Dancers? Ex-dancers, ex-gymnasts, ex-cheerleaders? Do you have an email? Well then you are the help I need! Please email those friends about the new blog! (Gymnastics IS Life, Thank you!

The Interstate Chapter 11

Izzy posted a comment on my blog on the first day! Thank you!
The next day I repeated the same routine. It's so boring how the days drag on and on and on and on. Sometimes I just wonder... if God was real, then why would there be death? It all makes no sense. I didn't do anything. No one else did. So why would I have to die someday? Because Adam and Eve's sin? It's not even MY fault! That just makes me so mad.

And why would I have to attend church? Because my parents say so? I can't wait until I turn eighteen! I can live in my own apartment, go to a school of my own choice in a state of my own choice, not Ohio, the last state I'd think of.

And saying prayers before eating... Listen. If i'm hungry, i'm gonna eat with no barriers!

Sure I may sound like a selfish pig, but this is all true.

Later on in the week, I decided to stop going to church with my family. I also didn't attend Mckenna's funeral, or Jeremy's. I regretted it afterwards, knowing McKenna was my best friend and Jeremy was my boyfriend, both amazing band members, but it would be too sad for me. I couldn't go.

Quick word!

Some songs are quite long so you don't have to listen past the 1:30 mark.


GUYS! I sent my floor music TWICE and you didn't listen to it. Guys... IT'S NOT THAT HARD! Promise me you'll listen this time. And i'm working on my blog book too.

I did some variations of music for each level. And for certain people, (Drew) If your YouTube is blocked on the computer, use it on the iPod. If you're not allowed, I understand.

Level 4:

Level 5:

Level 6:

Level 7:

Level 8:

Level 9:

Level 10:

Okay guys, I only want you to listen to level 4 really. I chose most of these songs by myself. Here are the songs in order by level:

Wolverine, Pink panther, National Treasure suite, Treasure, Viva la Vida, August Rush variations, Narnia theme song.

Tell me wich one you like most and dislike most!!!

Friday, December 18, 2009

Well... progress...

not really any. But I think my back handspring got slightly faster. this little five-year-old Morgan did it by herself today! She did better than I did last year! Now that's what I call sad. So far, three gymnasts can do it in level 4. I want it really soon! And check out my countdown!

Gym blog will be called...

Gymnastics4life sounds like a good name, right? Okay, instead of photos, i'm doing videos. It would seem a lot less paparrazzi-ish. It will not be FULL of photos, it will also have top ten floor music, gymnasium updates, and ways to complete the most difficult skills for you (or a gymnast), and cheerleading tryout tips.

Well i'm sick and don't know if i'm tumbling today. But I need my back walkover! I'm gonna try anyway.

WEEKLY QUESTION! Even if a child doesn't win, (a contest, etc.) should they still get a trophy?

read The Issue!

All I wanted to say hehe!

Free Personal signatures - cool!


The Issue: illegal drugs

My sister's coat was found:) Anywho, I am starting this series called The Issue which is about bad stuff in our modern world and research and experimenting on it. Today the issue is drugs.

Illegal Drugs by Hope Angelica Ezell.
You take Tylenol for your headache. Advil for your arthritis. But sometimes, drugs aren't always good.

Have you heard of D.A.R.E.??? If you have, you know what i'm talking about. And please tell me what DARE abbreviates. Well you know it is a program that is against drugs. That is pretty much all I know. You take it when you're young, so you know better when you're older.

Well after some experimenting, I saw how this druggy process works. Have you taken a pill? Yes? Well today I grabbed a glass of water and two smartie candies to see something. I pictured something.

Why would a kid/teen/adult want to do this? I thought a little more.

Depression. Lets say... 7 years of bullying. Picture that you are not a christian. Your parents are divorced. You're public schooled with no friends and get your lunch stolen EVERY SINGLE DAY. And imagine this too: You are not on the computer/phone/iPod right now because you're homeless. You have every reason to hate yourself. So you consider suicide and yada yada yada and take drugs. You think they make you feel so much better.

Curiosity. You are walking on the streets. You DO have a good life and are a christian. You're just walking home from school, thinking about what to say as an excuse for your bad grades. You walk through an ally as you always do and see some gang people. You see drugs in their hand. You think everyone should feel welcome, so you say, "Hello! Isn't it a beautiful day?" They start cussing you out because they are not good people. "Gosh, just bein' nice." You say and walk away. You find a pill on the ground. Germs, ewww! But you take it anyway, thinking it's just Ibuprofen or something. You feel sick.

Being dumb. This is one of the main reasons right here people!!!! People are at parties and lose control when they have no business drinking and that's as far as i'll go for dumb people.

Peer Pressure. You are with your friend[s]. Or at least you think they are. You guys talk and text and talk as you walk to a restaurant with no parent or guardian. You guys start chatting and you find out your friends are using drugs. They try to get you to do it. You do it knowing it's wrong.

Guys, I know you know, but this is important. Drugs can kill you, DUH! But here's some other side effects that I read in Seventeen.

Diarrhea, vomiting, heart attack, and that's all I remember...

Also, drugs are SOOOO not the answer. Remember this post, please if you want to live past thirty. (And longer than Micheal Jackson.)

Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!!!!!!!!

What if I told you I could almost do a back walkover and that I was really close? Well good news then--- I'm almost there! Today at gymnastics (I almost fainted doing this, seriously, I didn't feel good) my coach had me and Marquie (a gymnast who's my age, luckily) do back walkovers, because we are like, the only girls in level 4 who couldn't do a back walkover yet who went to level 5 today.

So Marquie was doing back walkovers a different way than me and probably did better because her way was slightly easier, but not by much. So I did it lifting my leg as I bent over backwards and kicked my best and almost made it. the problem? In a tick-tock, which is a front walkover/back walkover, I can't bend backwards, so I don't really have support. But even if I get a low score I can still have patience.

Around this time last year, I was training REALLY, REALLY hard for a meet and was POSITIVE I'd win. At the actual meet there was this really biased judge that judged level 3 very badly. Her daughter she judged very low and tied her with a girl who didn't even know the routine. I was given third place instead of whatever place I should've got. My coach said I should've placed first or second.

At the last meet, though, it was a spectacular turn around. It was waaaay better. At the meet before, I was only mad because the second place girl had a good routine, (Hailey) but the first place girl FELL. No reason to place high, she was just cute. Fat cheeks, adorable. But at THIS meet, the judges were fair, I placed where I wanted to, and now i'm going to place one place higher. Big deal. That means, FIRST PLACE!!! But the main thing, those two meets taught me only two things:

1. If you don't attempt, how do you know if you can do it?

2. Always have patience, don't be in a rush, even if that means a low score.

History Field Trip

About that... here's everything other than stolen coats...

Our homeschool group went to a museum in Cinncinnati for an exhibit on mummies and had some extra fun...

Mummy watch!
Two. Real. Mummies! I know, ewww but interesting. (And that's coming from me!) Four-year-old and sixteen-year-old. They are both from the B.C. times. I just couldn't get past the fact that these mummies, under glass and wrappy stuff, were humans who were alive before Jesus. Stinky probably!

I don't feel so good... BLAH!
We got to watch a movie about mummies in this dome shaped room with really HIGH rows, and a planetarium-effect. Me and Beckah (my friend) were sick before the movie even started! Luckily, we did not throw up. I can tell you we almost did! But it was otherwise fun.

There was a water place in the children's museum, and it was sooooo fun! My friend Taylor dared Maria (we ALL know her) to stick her head in the water. OH MY GOSH... MARIA DID IT! This a reminder to never dare her about ANYTHING.

I've got my hat, my purse... wait! I forgot my head!
In the children's museum, there was this really difficult to describe thing that you climb up in a stair formation that switches positions, like one stair to the right, other to the left and so on. I was trying to get up and got my head stuck! It hurt all right, but i'm fine!

Testing, testing... fail or pass?
Before the trip, we took the last test of the semester. Call it mid-term, call it final, IDK. And IDC. I don't know my scores for my History test, but I hope it was better than science! The horrible score: C 77.

Sup w/ u?
Tomorrow I have to go to my favorite level (Almost!) LEVEL 5! I have to make up for my injured foot and a recent power outage.

I did it!!!!

I sang my duet! It wasn't all that hard! Now my goal is to sing a SOLO for fun arts. Please vote about this! I have given you lots of time since fun arts is in a couple months.

Sing, sing, sing...

OMG!!!!! Can you believe my duet is TOMORROW?! So excited! Still nervous. This is my duet:

Love/came down at/Christ/mas/love all lovely, love divine/ love/was born at/Christ/mas/star and angels gave the sign.

It is a very little verse, but i'm still nervous. So this is my plan: In my head, I am going to pretend that I am singing in front of a camera. That way, I won't act crazy, because when I sing alone, I usually break something. (JK) And I won't be nervous, because it's like no one is in the room. And i'll look at the doors instead of at the people.

So i'm excited. On Thursday I went on a field trip with my homeschool group. My sister's coat was stolen, and I got my head stuck, but it was otherwise fun.

We got to see two ACTUAL mummies. i know, it made me nauseus a little. G2G but i'll write more later...

I am a complete failure. In eating of course! It is the second day of my diet and I already failed. Well actually, third. Still doing bad :(

More stuff!

My neck hurts REALLY bad. Is it possible to sprain your neck? Please comment or email

I was thinking about something as I read a book I recently checked out. You can already guess what it was about--- I talk about gymnastics all the time. Sure hope it's not annoying!!!!

Someone, a twelve-year-old said this--- "I really started [gymnastics] too late to be an elite. I'm practically the only one who is twelve still on level 4." This totally describes me, only i'm not twelve. She said she had been a gymnast for a year, just as me. The saying was a little discouraging for me though, because it means i'll never make it to the Olympics, and I really want to go!!! Sure, I started when I was nine and not two, but I know of two gymnasts who went to the Olympics in their thirties! WOW!

And besides, I left out something. "I don't care though. It doesn't matter how old you are, how tall or short you are, how good you are. If you are having fun, then that's what counts."

So even if I don't go to the Olympics, or am even elite or level 10, I can say I did a good job. And I might go someday, that would definetly be cool. Gymnast, author, model, makeup artist... and the occupations continue...

Hopie and stuff

I'm at the computer right now about to begin typing chapter three of my actual book. I'm eating peanut butter at the same time. Not sweet enough for me, but yum anyway!

Well for my childrens' church,, we are performing as a choir. I'm very excited! I love to sing and all, it's just the fact that I have a duet with my friend Mariah, and some of you might know her. I get so nervous when all the attention is on me or me with someone else because that's just how I am. So whenever my 'nervous problems' happen, I usually sing too quietly, or just kind of whisper the lyrics. But if I have a duet, I better sing a lot louder!!!! And i'm counting down. 4 days!

Ouch! Just then I did a handstand trying to practice for the beam, (I have an advantage for that, because heavier girls are better on the beam because they have lower centers of gravity, but being heavier can be bad for me, especially when it comes to fast movements like vault, especially because i'm tall, I have to eat healthier) And I felt a muscle pull in my shoulder, all the way to half of my neck. I'm always hurting myself!

The Forbidden Burger

Okay, okay, I confess... I ate the... the... the... ANGUS THIRD POUNDER! I'm sorry!!!!! I was starving after shopping, and shopping takes a lot of energy. But I don't feel as guilty because my mom is eating it with me. We are both guilty.

I'm finally on my way to...

...Being a best-selling eleven-year-old author!!!! I'm so excited!!! This moment, as I type, I am also typing my new book, The Greenhouse. I can hardly wait!

my foot (this time, yay!)

OMG OMG OMG, I am soooooo happy! My foot doesn't hurt at all anymore! Not even sore! I don't know what happened to it, but I was able to attend practice today and perform well. My back handsprings aren't looking so good... but I HAVE to look on the bright side, and of course pray about it! I'm not all that close on back walkovers either, and not only that, but the first meet is next month! It's been a year and I still can't do it!!!!!! It's easy to become impatient, but I just have to focus more on the routine and less on the skill alone. (Floor is what i'm talking about)

Now, when it comes to balance beam, I guess I am doing pretty good, because on the self-evaluation chart I made I have completed every Level 4 skill, just not perfectly. But the problem is, even if I get what would be a [perfect] 10 at practice, at the actual recital or meet or competition, (whatever you call it) I fall off two times. And yes, that IS bad. I SHOULDN'T FALL OFF AT ALL!!!! The average beam is four feet off the floor, but mine is only four inches! I have no reason to fall! And I've mastered a cartwheel and handstand, so that'll be soooo easy. My goal for this meet? 2nd place!

Now vault is what I am worst at, but my goals are still high. This one I made the lowest goal, which is 3rd place. I want to place in every event. But vault is really hard for me. The level 4 vault is just a handstand and then fall on a huge crash mat, but I always roll at the end, which is not correct. And my vaults are probably too slow, so I don't really have a chance of placing in this event being the tallest girl against (mostly) short (mostly) five year olds. Practice is the word of the day...

Wednesday, December 2, 2009


Well, here is a prayer list.

1. Glue* who has had the same headache for a week
2. Mollasses* who fell off a certain type of apparatas at gymnastics and is in the hospital.
3. Me, because my foot is still in bad shape from the beam incident.

*False name.

Late on my book, huh?

Yes indeed. Chapter eleven just won't flow! This will take one day to a month to find out.

On the other hand, there's some good news. I've decided to write another blog--- and this one is fully about the beauty and dangerous skills of my favorite sport--- gymnastics. If I get a digital camera, I will be able to create this beautiful blog full of photos of gymnasts at the Huber Heights YMCA tumbling to floor excersise routines and beam routines, exploding on the vault and doing drills. THIS IS THE EVERYDAY LIFE OF A GYMNAST! There will also be beautiful videos, of the most graceful girls, including the first place girls for high quality. You will also see me! And i'm not cancelling this blog. I will show awards ceremonies, too, as if you were at the meet.

With my camera, I will begin my web show, PROMISED. I really want to start the show again before 2010. I will have special guests too... and silly episodes that will make you say... 'What the?' All I ask from you is... HOW CAN I DO IT?! I don't even know how to do this. Maybe my dad can help but he's too technical, so please help me!!!!!
