See Ya L8r

I should be back next year....

It's New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year! Do you know what YOUR BLOG's Song of the New Year is????

It will always be "Forgiven"! If I'm right, it was last year's song, too, so I am not gonna do a sermon on it or anything. Here's something that will help you step into the new year. When we stepped into 2010, we had to remind ourselves that 2009 Is Gone.

So if the old has passed away, what can we do to make this the best year?

First of all, for me, this year is gonna bring a lot of change. I'm turning thirteen this year in November, (basically I just turned twelve) my blog will turn two years old, I'm trying to get a book published for real this time, it'll be my first year of Fine Arts, I'm entering the Greene County Royalty competition, I might start helping in JAM, I'll be a junior leader at Missions Extreme, and it might (only might, my fam. isn't sure) be my first year of public school.

So how can a person like me make it the best year?

Some people are naturally moody. Try to lighten up the mood! If your own blog is getting older, try to blog about really cool stuff! Try to raise your grades! Find a sport you like! Enter a competition! Help in church activities! So much you can do!

Try new things. Never been to a spa? Make your own spa! There are many ways to have a spa at home! Aromatherapy, (my favorite) pedicures, manicures, (you can skip the nail polish) facial treatments, foot baths, etc.
Never had a public voice? Write! I encourage everyone to start a blog! If you need help, ask me anytime on my page above, and I'll be so happy to help you get the latest gadgets, the best music players, best templates and designs, and everything. Who said just because you blog, you can't have a little fun?

Happy new year to everyone! I hope that you bring in a great new year! I don't know how you'll spend it, but let it be so fun, you'll know it'll be a great year!

Get Joy,

Well, Here's My Life...

Totally random, slightly disorganized.... that's my life! Fabulous, fun, full of literature, that's me! How to describe me? Sometimes geeky, in a fun way, sometimes too technical, in Olympic and grammar ways, sometimes the last person to understand a joke. But I have to say, it's fun being me!

Here's a small snippet of my life and how fun and weird it can be being me. Some videos I watch, (not always in English) some photos I like, some things I own.


I LOVE coffee. It's so delicious. I like it with just a little bit of creamer and just barely any sugar. I used to drink it with loads of creamer and barely any coffee, but now that I drink it less, it seems that when I do drink coffee with a lot of creamer, the more I add, the more it tastes like black coffee. So I add a lot less.

This cup is actually my mom's, she got it for Christmas 2009. I love coffee a lot, but I gotta say that I like tea ten times more.

With coffee, you have to refill and refill and refill. With tea, you keep the same old bag and drink more and more and more and more and more.... etc. I am a tea addict.

"I've got to have it, I'm what they call a tea addict, tea addict...."
"Doctor Oh Doctor I've got an emergency I just can't enough of my T-E-A drink!"

So yeah, I wanted to show you my cup. It makes tea taste delicious. You should try it!

This was the 100-day countdown song for the Beijing Olympics in 2008. I discovered this song not because I'm an Olympic fanatic, but because it was Chinese and Faith does Chinese instead of Spanish for school! I found out it was Olympic and wasn't surprised, because an Olympic girl knows when something is Olympic! And for you to know, the English translation is at the bottom of the video.

I'm not Sarah's biggest fan, but I love her show. What's really cool? Her intro features our song of the week!! Can you guess who sings it?? If you listen to Christian music, you can guess...

HEY... YA..!

In the video it says I don't own the game. Funny, Faith got the game for Christmas! Real fun!


This song is so fun on JUST DANCE!!!! Did you know that James Brown invented the moonwalk, NOT Micheal Jackson? Bet you didn't know that!

That's enough for 2nite! Luv ya, bye!

Imagine Your Nation: Prayer Camp Days 61-70!!!!!

Oh my gosh.... today would have been day 71!!!!!! I could have sworn it was day 69!!!!!!! So I went over my amount of days and kept on praying??? Better than ever!!!!

I can't believe I did it!!!! 70 days of no YouTube, no hair mascara, no Twitter, no high heels, (my addiction) no gymnastics, (that one is continuing until Feb.) no makeup products of any kind other than lip balm. Now, it's over!

Dad, you can give me back my lip gloss! You can take it out of hiding!

Mom, I know this isn't the happiest moment for you, because on Sunday, if you don't mind which I know you do mind, I'm wearing your high heel boots! Sorry, but I haven't worn them in nearly a year! I also know you're not so happy that I can wear lip gloss again. But hey... a girl loves her lip gloss!
Imagine YOUR Nation

There's billions of people in the world. We all have our own story. But what do we have in common? One person loves us all and died for us all.

You are only one person. I am only one person. We don't believe in the same things. There are some Buddhists, some Muslims, some Shintoists, some Mormons, some Catholics, some Christians, some Atheists. What is the right choice? Christianity, of course!

If you are only one person, what can YOU do on earth? If you have a blog, what can you blog about? One thing I hate? Typing a URL and ending up at the wrong site. make someone want to stay at your sight. Let them know the true God, and who He is. How will they stay?

Imagine your nation. If you have an imagination, be original. Don't go by the standards of the world. use not-so-matching-colors. Do everything the world says NOT to do. (but nothing that's illegal!) Your imagination is your sweet escape. What sweeps you off your feet. What brings music to your ears. What makes you smile. What smells like flowers.

Write it down. Write your experience in those thoughts and write them down like a list. Look at it, and you can write a story from there. Who knows what you'll come up with, make it Christian, make it a fairytale. Make it beautiful, but don't make it perfect. Perfect is almost unreal. Imperfection is the key to being real. You want your blog/stories to seem so real that the reader can see it in their imagination, almost like they're there. If you can capture a reader's heart, you're sure to get awards. That's the secret to great writing.

I can't say much more. Thank you for reading my blog during this time of prayer, and all I can say is that you mean so much to me!!!

It Just Doesn't Feel Like Christmas.

I tried to get really excited for the holidays by adding fun Christmas music to my blog, including the 2010 Coca-Cola song, "Shake Up Christmas" by Train. It actually worked!

But Christmas Eve and Day just felt like any other day. Christmas Night was normal. I had no problems sleeping, and I went to bed on Christmas Day. (12:06 to be exact.) in the morning, Charity was in the spirit, but I was like, "Five more minutes..." and usually I like getting up at 6 a.m. for presents, but this year I was like, 'whatever, let's get up'.

I guess it's because I'm getting older and I didn't ask for much... Well, in my eyes I didn't. So I didn't expect much.

This brings me to think: what was the best Christmas that I actually enjoyed??? Christmas 2006. I'd been given a pink acoustic guitar. I'll never forget it. Left-handed version, making it more expensive. LOVED it, because I always wanted to play guitar, most likely because my dad can play all varieties of guitar. Bass, electric, acoustic... You name it.

Last Christmas I didn't exactly get what I want, but Jesus was what made it a happy Christmas. This year, I got the book I wanted, ("Unlocked"... Yay!) a foot spa so I don't have to heat up my own pedi water anymore, sanitizer, nail polish for zebra stripes, some journals, jewlery, and tonight I should be getting some more jewelry... If not that, it's:

"Money money money money, MoNeY!!!$$$$$$$$$$!!$$!!$$!!$$!!$$!!$$"

"Good things, bad things with it..." remember to vote on my quiz so that your pick will win. Are you a music lover? Movie watcher? Fashionista? Well then I need you!

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas...

...And a white Christmas it will barely be! Merry Christmas from your blogging BFF, have a very fun and safe holiday! May God bless you as you travel, and may you get the presents you want. And to God I pray, help me to be a gracious receiver as well as a giver. Remember what Christmas really is, a baby born to die.

Again, have a very merry Christmas!

Shake up Christmas!
Hope (Ho, Ho, HOPE!)

"For Narnia!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"Now is the time to be strong!"

Oh my gosh, I saw The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader today! I actually, kind of.... didn't like it.

If you haven't seen it yet, let me tell you: It's worth the money and time, but it's not worth five stars.

Aslan plays his part as great as usual. He relates to God so much! (As bad as that may have come out, you know what I meant.) He reminds me of the beauty and the forgiveness of our God. "We are the sons and the daughters of our God..." Aslan plays his role perfectly, and reminds me: "Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are HIGHER than any other! Our God is healer, awesome in power, Our God! Our God!"

The White Witch? As witchy as always. This may sound twisted, but I always laugh when she tempts Edmund, because his facial expressions are like, "Oh, Turkish Delight! Oh, I want to be the king!" But the witch has a new way of being evil this time.

Prince Caspian. He's older! I'm surprised it hasn't been 1300 years! However, I don't like that after being in love with Susan for so long, he nearly likes some blue star girl. (Don't ask...)

PETER!!! I LOVE YOU!!!! One thing I didn't like was that Peter only appeared once. And it didn't even count, because he appeared in a dream! But for you girls out there, Peter hasn't lost any of his cuteness!:)

Susan. Ugh. I usually hate that character. Christians shouldn't hate, but Susan isn't real. Sorry C.S. Lewis, but I HATE Susan. She appeared on and off every so often. At least her face did.

OH, MY EDMUND.... EDMUND, DEAR, YOU CAN BE MY KING.... I love Edmund! He is cute as always! But along with that, he's kinda stubborn.

The first movie: Turkish Delight Syndrome. Candy Addict.
The second movie: Stabs the witch's back. Good boy, Ed.
The third movie: I-Wanna-Be-King Syndrome.

Ed soon gets tired of Peter and Caspi---- HEY!!! Why am I spoiling the movie for you??? Nevermind...

So yeah... great movie.
My Craaaaaazy Night

It was a night with girls that I didn't know. I went to a party/sleepover for my friend Sarah, so yes, I knew why I was there, I just didn't know most of the others. They all---most---go to Dominion Academy, so it was a bit awkward, with them talking about people I knew nothing about whatsoever.

(P.S. I'm watching Prince Caspian right now!! It's at the beginning on SyFy Channel! You can still catch it, if you're reading on time.)

We watched "13 Going on 30". GREAT movie!
A Sad Story

Here's a story I found on the internet that reminds you that if you love someone and you're just too shy... you'll see why.... it's about a boy who loves a girl who's "just too shy" and "doesn't know why".

10th grade

As I sat there in English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so called "best friend". I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine. But she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before and handed them to her. She said "thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I wanted to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

11th grade
The phone rang. On the other end, it was her. She was in tears, mumbling on and on about how her love had broke her heart. She asked me to come over because she didn't want to be alone, so I did. As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. After 2 hours, one Drew Barrymore movie, and three bags of chips, she decided to go to sleep. She looked at me, said "thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

Senior year
The day before prom she walked to my locker. My date is sick" she said; he's not going to go well, I didn't have a date, and in 7th grade, we made a promise that if neither of us had dates, we would go together just as "best friends". So we did. Prom night, after everything was over, I was standing at her front door step. I stared at her as she smiled at me and stared at me with her crystal eyes. I want her to be mine, but she isn't think of me like that, and I know it. Then she said "I had the best time, thanks!" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

Graduation Day
A day passed, then a week, then a month. Before I could blink, it was graduation day. I watched as her perfect body floated like an angel up on stage to get her diploma. I wanted her to be mine, but she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. Before everyone went home, she came to me in her smock and hat, and cried as I hugged her. Then she lifted her head from my shoulder and said, "you're my best friend, thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

A Few Years Later
Now I sit in the pews of the church. That girl is getting married now. I watched her say "I do" and drive off to her new life, married to another man. I wanted her to be mine, but she didn't see me like that, and I knew it. But before she drove away, she came to me and said "you came!". She said "thanks" and kissed me on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

Years passed, I looked down at the coffin of a girl who used to be my "best friend". At the service, they read a diary entry she had wrote in her high school years. This is what it read: I stare at him wishing he was mine, but he doesn't notice me like that, and I know it. I want to tell him, I want him to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love him but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why. I wish he would tell me he loved me! `I wish I did too...` I thought to my self, and I cried.

Isn't it terribly sad???
Hey!! Before You Waste Your Money....

Natalie Portman is in a new movie, "The Black Swan". For your own good, don't watch it. I saw reviews. They are scary. Yes, I will spoil the movie for you so you won't watch it. She ends up dying. How is too freaky. Now you don't wanna see it because you know how it ends!
Musical talent is yours, too!

If you would just click here. you could play a Narnia song! Without chords, so it's twelve times easier! Take it from a Narnia fanatic!
Did you know that the director for the new Narnia movie isn't the same? The old director is gone, making it different.
Did you know that Georgie Henley (Lucy) is fifteen years old?
Okay, I'm totally boring you out by talking about Narnia, so goodbye!
P.S. Time!
-I got the new Third Day CD!
-At the mall, I parked next to a G6!!!!

Christmastime Is Here Part 2

Music Playlist at

*Pause the sidebar music before pressing "Play". Please, listen to this music. It will help get you in the mood of this post. To pause the other music is to go to the top right corner of the playlist, and your controls are right there. Remember, you can click on any song you want and it will play right then.*

Okay... Well... here's the fun part of Christmas!

We've all seen at least one Charlie Brown classic, I hope. Charlie is so cute! He's been my favorite cartoon since... ever! I love him! I remember just one line from Charlie Brown that I've known since I was five.

It's the part where Linus sticks out his tongue when they're in the snow and he says, "It tastes like sugar"! For some odd reason, I've always remembered that line. Weird, huh?
What does Christmas really mean? Ask Linus anytime.

Charlie Brown has been through it all. These couple days, so have I. So what does he do? He goes to the Psychologist, Lucy. "What's wrong, Charlie Brown?" She asks. (Something like that, at least.) "Well, I feel depressed." He says. Lucy is not the doctor you wanna go to. "Is it ...phobia? That's the fear of *blahblah*." She goes through a huge list of diseases that Charlie doesn't exactly have.

"Well then... what are you afraid of, Charlie Brown?"
"Everything!" He yells.

So what's up with Charlie? He doesn't know the true meaning of Christmas.

He puts on a play, and the kids know they're doomed. They ask Charlie to get a tree for them. So he does as asked. Almost. Him and Linus go get a tree. "But, it's not as festive as the other trees," Linus says about the tiny tree. "Don't worry, we'll decorate it and it will look so pretty," Charlie says.

He takes what is now called the Charlie Brown Tree to the theater, and Lucy absolutely hates it. All of the kids laugh at his tree and leave him alone. The tree with one ornament on it. It's just him and Linus, now.

Charlie is completely defeated. Already not in the Christmas spirit, he gives up, still not knowing what Christmas really means. So Linus takes the floor and explains it to him. The REAL story of Christmas. The story of Jesus.

Charlie all of a sudden becomes happy, with Linus' voice recording again in his head. "Now is born a Saviour."

Charlie takes his tree, places it in front of his house, (even though Snoopy's house is number 1) and gladly smiles as he walks to his house.
What is this telling you? The maker of PEANUTS was most likely a Christian. Another thing? It's one of the few Christmas programs that don't say "Happy Holidays" or "Merry X-Mas". They say that Jesus is the shining star.

"Noel... Noel... Noel... Noel..."

Born is the king of Israel.

Christmastime is Here Part 1

Christmastime is here... With one less person. Again.

I was just about to tell you the amazing story of uncle Charles, how he survived cancer and thought he'd die fifteen years ago and is still alive, and to pray for him because he isn't doing great, I heard the shocking news. Uncle Charles, who I think I told you about, passed this morning. I didn't know him well, but he knew me well. I didn't know him from the day he was born, but he was there when I was born. Now, he's gone.

It was already a sad day to begin with. Today is my grandpa's 50th anniversary, and he has no one to celebrate with, since my grandmother died last year on August 6th, which I'm sure I blogged about. It's even sadder for Grandpa, because Uncle Charles is his brother. He has 9 other siblings, and only seven excluding him are living. Overall, 8 kids are alive. My aunt Rose, (I blogged from her house on the post "North Carolina & Georgia") is planning the funeral. If you've recently had a family death, you feel the same. God bless. Luckily, Uncle Charles is with Jesus.

Prayer Camp Days 47-60

Dude... I haven't blogged in EVER! I can't even use the "I've been busy" excuse! It's really that bad! However, with being gone for so long, that means a lot that's happened, a lot of events coming up, and some stuff to show you! And prayer tackles all of that! It'll be a looong post!

Lately, I've been getting headaches and head rushes in the mornings. It's sooo annoying. Some days, the headache lasts all day, making me not in a blogging mood. And if I drink Mountain Dew.... that's a migraine that lasts one and a half days! And my hip (I know this sentence is slightly fragmented...) is killing me again. This morning, I felt like I was gonna collapse. One injury gymnastics has caused that won't ever be the same again. Let's hope I get better, so I can blog and talk even more!!!

Sure is one adorable puppy! We got snowed out this past week or two, and Lexi loves it! She was rolling around and jumping about today... so cute! She digs her nose in the snow and when she comes up, she has a pound of icy powder on her head! If you could see her now...

Yesterday was the Cappuccino Christmas! I liked it! I sang some Karaoke with Mrs. Janette and Becca, and the food rocked! I had nice fun! Yes, I got coffee on my nice dress, (that I am sure to write about!) but so what? Kaitlyn showed up, (she has a blog, but never posts on it.... START BLOGGING AGAIN, KAITLYN!:) and after not seeing her forever, it was nice. I love seeing everyone dressed up and having fun! GO NEXT YEAR!

Ten days.... and Prayer Camp finally ends! God, I love you, but.... I can't wait to wear my lip gloss and lipstick and lipstain! I can't wait to Tweet again! I can't wait to wear my high kicking boots again! 'Tis the season for high-heeled boots! I can't wait to get myself some semi-permanent red hair dye! I really wanna dye my hair! I don't know if my mom will let me, though. After these next ten days, I am a free girl!!!! Yes!!!!
2011 is a greatly planned year! There's books soon to be on the market, giveaways, awards, T-shirts, a new blog to be published in late 2011. More fun to be continued!

My Books on the Market... FINALLY!
I've been procrastinating on publishing my books, but I've realized that the older I am when I publish the first book, the less interesting it'll be. I wanna still be in middle school when this book comes out... let people know that age is nothing big when it comes to writing!

What will it be this time? No one knows, not even me! Participate in Prayer Camp in the last ten days, sign up right here and maybe you'll win! It could be anything... Maybe an entire book of Bible Challenges... who knows?

Good Music vs. Bad Music, Problems with Our World, Friends, Dating, and more. Finally, a blog where I can really speak my mind! It will be published after November 22, 2011.

Come On Y'all... It's Christmas Time!

Are you happy??? I sure hope so! I'm happy! You'd think I'd be sick since I had four cups of soup today:) but I am happier than ever! Right now, I'm giving myself a facial and thinking about Christmas.... and the controversy. And, I'll be strong like Daniel... the soup had A LOT of veggies!

Okay, have you thought about it? (Thought about... what?) Thought about how many children have once believed in Santa Claus versus children who believe in Jesus? Let's see...

72% of children believe in Santa--- or at once believed in him. One quarter of children with parents who earn less than $25,000 a year did not believe in Santa.

92% of Americans believe in God... or say that they believe in God. But, only 71% really love God. Most of the 92% are not sure, and most probably didn't speak truth, considering some of them said they were atheists, yet they believe in God? Impossible. 8% said they were absolutely sure. Can't be possible if you're an atheist. Why even be an atheist?

So, can you believe it? 72% of children believe in Santa. 71% believe in God, including adults. I had expected for Santa to outdo Christ anyway, but I didn't think Santa would beat God by only 1%!

Christians: We were SO close! One percent! They beat us by only one percent! But, we've got a lot more work than that. First, our baby step is to get that small 1%. Next, we need to get the remaining 28%. Next, we need to enhance their salvation.... you know, give them a reason to believe!

What's frustrating is that more kids believe in a (if you believe in Santa, don't read any further.) character that barely exists, (Saint Nick was real, but he's dead.) than kids and their parents that believe in God. God is real, Santa isn't! Why would they choose Santa over God?

Santa gives one gift... and the parents pick up the rest of the tab! God is better than gift-giving, I mean, he gave us Jesus, didn't He? That's enough to believe right there.

Prayer Camp Days 40-46

Angel of Mercy, how did you find me? How did you pick me up again???
The small city of Huber always sleeps. There is no evening traffic. There are no malls or outlets in this town, you'd have to drive thirty minutes out of your way to find a mall in Fairborn. There is one place to take gymnastics. There are no Dillard's stores. Finding a prom dress is rare; you must go to Kohl's; there is only one newly-opened boutique. There is no K-Mart, it closed about a year ago. Nothing is very popular in this tiny suburb, we don't have many AVON women or news reporters.

But we have a football team. We are known nationwide. Our games are always featured on ESPN. Our quarterback was in Sports Illustrated. We have won many games. Colleges are fighting over our magazine-worthy Braxton Miller. We are a very civilized community. We have a great library. Our athletes are outstanding. We are friends.

We are: WAYNE.

We are going to the State Championships. Millions of people will watch us play. Michigan fears us. (Braxton is going to Ohio State.) We can only say that we have been transformed!

We used to lose basically every game. We used to be a school in the shadows. But the LORD of mercy has picked us up again! We are now staggering at the top! No school can ever steal OUR swagger ever again!
Another story of being picked up that doesn't have to do with football? I went skating yesterday and was going down a steep step, while wearing my skates and fell flat down onto my back. It really hurts right now. But, in the midst of what could have been, I am very happy. Could've paralyzed myself. But I'm free!
Here's another good story based on the true fact that the shoe doesn't fit unless God picks it out for you!

It's always fun to talk about a good deal, isn't it? Well then, shhhhh, because this deal is secret. I haven't told ANYONE about it.

Yesterday I went shopping at Goodwill, and I desperately need a dress for Cappucino Christmas. I went to the Ladies' Dresses section, and I found a wedding dress! With a train and everything! For only five bucks! I was like, WOW.... that's amazing! You can get that for $5,000 yet here you'll get it for $5.

So, here's what is REALLY important: I was looking through the dresses, (AFTER the whole wedding situation) and was trying to find a Christmas dress.

"Ugly, ugly, EWW! How'd that end up in ANY kind of store??? Ugly, ugly.... too pink, too blue, too green, too short, too prommy, weird-looking, ugly, ugly...."


"Hey! A dress fell! Okay, if this dress fell," I said, not even knowing what color it was yet, "There must be a reason. I just know that God wanted it to be there." I took a deep breath and bent down.


I can't wait to wear it! I can't give you details, because I've already told you too much. You'll see it on Wednesday, December 15!!! I'll take pictures afterwards for those of you who won't see me soon, (especially my volleyball peeps:*( Miss ya!) but otherwise make sure you go to ThExperience on the 15th! Most importantly, go on the 8th! $3.00 in advance, $5.00 at the door!

"I know something the prince never knew... All too soon, the clock will strike midnight, and she'll, Be, Gone."
What's Cappucino Christmas???

E-mail this blog today, and I will let you know the church address,
what to wear,
what to bring,
 what to pay,
 and who's the mastermind behind this spectacular event! (Idk who the mastermind is, but if you ask, I'll just say Pastor Corey.)

"It Snowed...."

Oh my gosh..... "Everybody's happy because it snowed last night!"

It snowed EVERYWHERE last night, except for where I live. How did I find out? One word. Technically TWO words. Facebook.

My sister was on Facebook. Christian (not all of you know him... I've known him since I was eight and he goes to Faith's school now) says.... "snow:)". Snow? Where? Maybe it's because he lives fourty-five minutes away.

Sarah (you know her from church) says... "SNOW!!!" So now I'm like, "COME ON!!!" She lives like, ten minutes away!!! There is no way that it's snowing near her and not near me. Her house is ten minutes away. Her school is walking distance from me. There is NO WAY it wasn't snowing here. It's IMPOSSIBLE.

But today... IT SNOWED!!!!!!!!!!! It's not like, four feet high or anything, but everybody's happy because it snowed last night! That is why it is the first song on the playlist.

Take note that the song on the playlist, although her voice sounds just the same as on her CD, the guitar at the beginning is supposed to be trumpets, and there's also supposed to be a piano somewhere in there. So I didn't get the original version, but it's still a great song!

"How merry... How bright... a snowfall turns the world into a lovely sight!"

So as you can tell, the playlist no longer has seventy songs on it, it only has nine. Christmas classics you'll love, and maybe some new songs you've never heard before! And guess what? Yesterday, I discovered a not-so-new The Fray song, (you might recognize them from "How to Save A Life" the song) called "You Found Me". It's a Christian song!

"Lost and insecure. You found me, you found me! Lying on the floor. You found me, you found me..."

(You can buy that on iTunes or search it on YouTube !)

So that's a band that I like a bit better than Paramore!!!
