Mispell Munday~Gimme Five Hours... It'll Be Done By Then For Sure! (my trip to *underworld*)

Welcome back to Mispell Munday! Today's story is on my trip to *underworld*. And when I say that, I mean it. A living underworld. The underworld might be something you know of like Greek Mythology or something, (or maybe just from watching Hercules!) but this is a new underworld. This is the hair salon.

 I go to the "Universal" slaon, somehwere in Harrison twp or soemthing lkie taht. On friday, i wnet to get my hiar realxed (in other words that means chemically straightening my hair) and it took forveer. i'll sohw you trhe shedule,

4:30p.m. we arirve at the unedrwrold.
4:35-7:30p.m. we wiat and we wiat. nohting hpapens.
7:35p.m. my buaetician finlaly strats on my hiar.
8:30p.m. she strats on Faith's hiar
10p.m. she's FINALLY dnoe wtih OUR hiar, not jsut mnie! i can laeve the underwrold. and i hvae no tmie to blog abuot it so i deicde to shrae it on Mispell Munday.

That's my Mispell Munday post! It's short, I know, but it had to be. What I do is spell it right, then I spell it wrong in a very special way. If I don't use this technique, your mind will find it impossible to read. This is a psychological technique that if the first and the last letters are spelled correctly, you will automatically know it.
So take this as educational... it will help you become a better problem-solver. (That I know, thanks to chain emails!) And every time you point out a mistake I make,  your improving your English and Grammar skills.

No way am I spending another one-sixth of my day in a hair salon without getting my nails done too,

The Rest of the Blogspot Awards

Okay, before I tell you the last three results from our Blogspot Readers' Choice Awards, I've got some great news for you.

Okay, Mispell Munday is WAY too hard, so just to let you be the first to know, those posts are gonna be crazy short and you aren't gonna link up to them anymore, but you can still join.

I'm starting "RandomNess Friday". I didn't create it, Prism did. She's so smart. She's a friend of a friend, so I really don't know her. But we have a mutual friend, so hey, it's not stalking. In fact, I'm gonna follow her right now... (She does great reviews on teen books. When will she publish her own?)

Also, GREATTTTTTTTTT news... Guess who's gonna be at the homeschool convention?

Tim Hawkins, you know....

But who else is gonna be at the convention??? Let me tell you, it's big! A big happy family!

THE DUGGERS!!!!!!! 19 Kids And Counting!!!! Oh my gosh!!!!!
Enough said.
Wow, that was.... interesting. So, I've been pushing back the date to tell you who won the readers' choice awards. It's really cool, because the first place winner won both categories! So everyone who placed gets a digital trophy/medal, too.

I forgot to tell you which beauty product won.
It works awesomely, so go out NOW, and buy it. Now. Why are you still reading? You should be at Walgreens by now.
Here's the big news.
First and second place for "The Most Inspiring Blog" and first place for "The Best Blog" is....

2nd place
The Secret Life I mean, "A Real American Teenager!" Go Kayla! Her blog is SO inspiring, and if you go to her blog right now, she's got a really inspiring story on her dad's horse accident. I like horses, but I'm gonna be careful about getting on one...

"This is a very inspiring blog"
(You can copy and paste the image with the text for your blog and people will see as soon as they visit that your blog is awesome.)

1st place (and the winner of "The Best Blog" contest!)

"My blog is one of the most inspiring blogs, and it's the best blog in OUR BLOG history."
Now, I'm gonna get back to what I was doing. I was listening to a song by Paramore, but I almost feel bad about listening to it because of it's title. It's not bad, and the song  isn't either. I just love that song. "...I'll point you to the mirror!" (not it's title.) Now, I'm gonna update this blog before I get some rest!

My First Walk Down Memory Lane!

I love Wednesday's Walk. I love reading Mrs. Jenilee's posts and they're always great. The link I have is a really funny one, too!

So here's the story of my life. It's starts just like yours, and then it changes and changes....
November 22, 1998. It began on a Sunday, the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Because of that, my birthday sometimes is on Thanksgiving. Anywho, (I just had to say that, it's a cool fact I think) I was born on that day, almost thirteen years ago, sort of. Little, tiny baby had tiny feet that couldn't fit any baby booties because it's feet were too small. It's just the opposite now. (size 10 womens'.... I know...) Anyway, back to the subject. I had Jaundice, but it's easily cured. Before we talk more, let's talk about months BEFORE that.

My mommy was sick. (don't ask me, I don't know what was wrong.) Like, really sick. Not pukey sick, but bad sick. When she found out she was pregnant, the doctors wondered if the baby was gonna survive. Well, the baby did survive, but the baby got sick, too.

The baby healed her mommy. I don't know how, but she did. Her mom was full of strength, unlike 9 months before. But the baby was diagnosed with RSV, which is common in premature babies, and I was 4 weeks premature. The baby was in bad condition, but we know I'm healed, and that's really all I know:)

The baby was born in the sometimes cold, sometimes hot state of Utah. A lot of good came out of it. The military discounts, the view of the mountains from any window in the house, the really big house, my daddy having a great job in the Air Force, and the Olympics. What more can a preschooler ask for?

In 2002, the Olympic craze hadn't begun, but would just a few years later. THE OLYMPICS WERE BEING HELD LESS THAN 30 MINUTES AWAY! Everyone was excited. Little did I know that Apolo Ohno was competing in his first Olympics, and actually lived there. Salt Lake City did a great job hosting.

2003, and my dad's time in the military was no longer... I don't want to say not nessecary, but he didn't have to serve any longer. 21 years (3 years spent on vacation, yes, I get my slacking from my dad. Just kidding, he's no slacker.) serving in the Air Force, now it was time to retire. His daughters were 9, (Charity) 6, (Faith) and 4 (me) years old. The oldest daughter had lived in Japan, Utah, and Ohio. The rest didn't have that much traveling experience, but it was fun while it lasted.

He had this GRAND idea to move closer to home (okay, that was Mom's idea), which was Cleveland, Ohio. Mom wanted to live IN Cleveland. That was a no-no. (sorry, Doug, if you're reading this.) So we moved near Wright-Patterson AFB and it worked well. Dad got a suvillian job on base, (didn't last very long) and everyone was happy.

At a certain point, we weren't happy. No friends, you know, that kind of stuff. But we changed our minds. LOVE it here. We joined sports and had so much fun, eventually.

My first best friend's name was Ciara. I met her at church and she was in my homeschool group. We were best friends. That all changed, soon.
She stopped going to our church and the visits with her family were very distant. They stopped homeschooling and BAM! I didn't see her for a long time. We haven't spoken for about two or three years. No fight, but we hadn't seen each other and went our separate ways.

My other best friend was Valerie. Great friend. We're still friends to this day. I met her going on a walk on one of the first days in Ohio. She had just moved here also, from New Mexico or Kentucky, idk. She was sitting on her car bumber with her black lab, Smokey. (that dog is 9 now... can you believe it??? It has the same birthday as Faith.) She was eating M&Ms, and I walked up randomly.

"Can I have an em-in-em?" I asked. She was in third grade at the time and gave me one. I dropped it. Another one. Dropped it. Another one. Ate it.
"Thank you!"
Charity, who was embarrassed, tried to explain. I remember the sweet taste of that chocolate... mm...
That day on, her and Charity were good friends.

We went to her house for the first time and her dad answered the door. The first moment he saw us, he turned his head and yelled, "Valerie, who are these people????" She told him and they let us in and after that, B.F.F.

Long story short because too many good things happened, she moved last summer to Colorado because of her dad's job in the Air Force. Look what the military can do to friendships. I still contact her and miss her, and she's graduating next year, just like Charity is. They're in the same grade, and forever, when I think of Ohio, I'll think of all the fun times we had.

I joined cheerleading in 2008. I joined gymnastics later that year, and had fun. I joined volleyball in '07, and continued in '10. Athletics was looking good for me, but to know more about that, just read Gymnastics IS Life.

I began blogging in early 2009, and to this day I still do. This is my second oldest blog, the oldest one that works, and I'll never forget it. Of course, I'll make a high school blog when I'm in high school and a college blog when I'm in college, a business blog when I have a job, a marriage blog hen and if I get a husband, a mom blog if I become a mom, a homeschooling blog if I choose to homeschool, and so on. But I'll always remember THIS blog.
That's the end of today's Wednesday's Walk, soon, we'll start talking about actual events!

Shake, Shake, Shake; Senora!

If you follow me on Twitter (sorry, I protected my tweets... but you can ask to follow me, sorry) you saw that yesterday, I tweeted some of the lyrics to "Jump in the Line" by Harry Belafonte. Also, in yesterday's post I mentioned watching the same YouTube video all week. Now, you know why.

"Jump in the Line" by Harry Belafonte.

This song I first heard on "JUST DANCE 2" and it's so fun to listen and dance to!

Try dancing to this in front of your computer, and you'll know why it's fun to play! You should totally get the game! Some say "Dance Central" is better, but it sounds like a bogus knock-off. (To be honest.)

This song is just SOOOOOOOO catchy... and with the Disney scenes, it's even cooler! It makes me want to WATCH it... not just LISTEN to it. Usually, I minimize the video and blog while listening, but with THIS video... I have to watch it.... GroovyChris (the person who made the video) leaves you with no choice but to watch it.

If you're an adult or something, you might know this song from "BeetleJuice". (I never watched that, but it appears it had something to do with it.) This song... I've fallen in LOVE with oldies!

Over the summer, at my Aunt Rosa's house I watched a documentary/commentary or whatever the word is, movie about Marvin Gaye (or someone else, idk). It might've been... But anyway, I watched a video about him and we've all heard at least one song by him, in fact, here's one that you know:

Oh yeah... You've heard this one.

Here's another song we all know. (You may not recognize the title, but you've definitely heard it.)

This song is on Just Dance, and I blogged about it a while ago, in a snippet of my life. There you can see the Just Dance video.

That's my life for today... Expect to hear from me soon... I plan on joining The Goodwin Family in Wednesday's Walk! (I'm typing about when I was a baby through to four years old.)

HEROES Week~The Stand (Looong post, some of it is mumbo jumbo malarkey.)

"So what can I say? What can I do? But offer this heart oh God completely to you."
"So I'll stand with arms high and heart abandoned in awe of the One who gave it all. I'll stand, my soul LORD to you surrendered, all I am is yours."

Sorry we don't have the end:( But still, it's a cool video!
Boy... Do I wish I wrote that song! It's my favorite worship song! It's one of those songs that you're just like, I don't know how to explain it... Like, there's an instant peace inside of you. Let me try to make myself clear with a few examples: (Beware, I'm getting off subject.)

1. (I used this example talking about a verse, at Missions Extreme camp 2010) Like when you're trying on a dress and then you find another piece that just perfectly matches your dress... Okay, if you didn't quite 'get' that or didn't take it seriously, it's fine. It is a little silly:)

2.When you're at the beach, and you're one of the only people there on a cloudy, cold day. All you hear is what you want to hear... the sounds of the ocean... like an instant peace that fills your whole body.

3. You know that feeling you get when your song is being played? it's like when you're at a party and you're like, "Yeah, baby! I LOVE Linkin Park!" (Couldn't think of any better bands.) It's like that when you hear that one worship song and you're just like, "Oh, this is my jam!"

I love this song... I can just worship God and it's just me and Him... I don't even really have to 'think up' anything, it's already there. You don't know what to say, you don't know what to do, because all I can think of is in this song. So if you're wondering what goes through my mind at worship? This is it. My moment of peace. My prayer. My happiness.
Okay.... Enough standing, now let's talk about the stand, between you and the world!

Let me tell you, it's been a bogus week. I haven't been anywhere. And when I say that, I really mean I haven't been anywhere. Nowhere. Just sitting at home, watching the same YouTube video and playing that same song on JUST DANCE. (I'll show you that tomorrow.)
I went to JAM on Sunday, my first time being there as a volunteer. It was my first time, so yeah, it was weird-feeling, you know, telling the same kids to pay attention that you were in JAM with a few months ago. But I enjoyed it.
On Monday, I went nowhere because it was Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.
On Tuesday, I went nowhere. I thought I had volleyball practice at 8p.m. and it turns out it was at 6p.m. Ooops:(
On Wednesday, I didn't go to church because "I have homework", (Faith's lame excuse) "I have exams", (Charity's excuse) "I'm tired", (Mom's excuse) and "I don't feel good today, my leg hurts." (Dad is the only one who actually had a reason.)
On Thursday, I didn't have class because some friends were sick.
On Friday, (today) I would normally have gone to a workshop but couldn't. However, I am looking forward to the Science Fair.

Tomorrow, I'm looking forward to Dad's band practice, you know, give me something to do. Sunday, I have to work in the nursery with (Dun, dun, dun....) the FIVE-YEAR-OLDS. Let me tell you, sometimes, it's torture. It can be bad. SOMEBODY HELP ME!!!!!!
Sorry, I had to tell you about my week. Now, here's the real stuff.

Sometimes it feels like no one cares
To be alive, they just throw their lives
Away. They need to stand, simply because they can, and make a change... save our dying world someday
Never should they give in, never should they give up on what's right. They need to fight.
Don't lose your soul, it won't make you whole, take a stand, you have a chance.
I've been writing acronym-ish poems lately... I hope you like them!

Lately it seems like---well, we all know our world is ending soon---but it seems like everyone's living their lives like we have all the time in the world. Partying like it's 1999. Walking on indifferently. Going with the crowd.

Well, think back to if it really was 1999. Who'd party and ruin their reputation if the world was ending? Well, that situation is over. 1999-ers... you got lucky!

We have no time to do nothing anymore. Now, we have to do something. We have no choice. This week was designed with the world in mind. With you in mind. With your friends in mind. With everyone but me in mind. (Okay... I have to admit I wanted some more blog traffic, but still! With you in mind!) The real reason I update this blog so often and put new designs and gadgets up because I want more traffic. I want more people to read about Jesus and how He saves lives and everything. I also like seeing the number of hits go up, but it's good to know that you can help make a difference by doing what you do everyday!

When I looked up Degrassi videos that had to do with Superchick's "Hero", there were many summaries about that season of the show, and one character became a Christian through his girlfriend. Degrassi.... not a very good show, but that's one good thing that came out of it. That episode helped a lot of teens. Probably didn't save anyone, but still, it's doing something to change the world.

Everyone is the same in this world. No one has fun anymore. No one is different anymore. Barely anyone reaches out a helping hand anymore. People still do, but it's scarce--- now more than ever. Never have I given money to the poor (well, yes I have, as in roadside stuff, but never in an organized way other than Missions Extreme) or helped out at a soup kitchen (well, I did once, but I was little.), but I can still help... somehow.

A little creativity helps. Wear clothes that don't match. Wear makeup (for you girls, let's have some fun!) that's extremely bright. Get bright green blog templates. (i'm not gonna do that... I get pretty darn bad headaches.) Be different. In an indifferent world, you'll be different--- I'm sure.

Earlier, I talked about taking a stand, not just simply saying 'stop'. Here's your stand.

This is the last day of HEROES Week, and I'm going back to normal blogging after this. But being a hero begins here. Be a hero for yourself, and take the stand. Listen to the song I have at the very top of this looooong post, and think about it.

To be a hero for others, you must be a hero in your own life as well.

The rest is written on your own. Be a hero. Will you save your life as well?

Save your life.
"I'll stand, my soul LORD to You surrendered, all I am is Yours."

HEROES Week~Start Saving Lives. Start Now.

We've all heard "How To Save A Life" by now. If you haven't, it's on my playlist and it's by The Fray, $1.29 on iTunes.

Do you know why it was written? You may think, "well, obviously someone died."
BINGO, someone died.

A while ago, and when I say 'a while', I mean 2005-ish, A real long time ago, the band leader had a really good friend who one day overdosed on drugs and well... Bye-Bye BFF.

That explanation may have sounded a little heartless, but that's how it is. Now, the singer is thinking a common thing, "What could I have done differently? How can I prevent this from happening to someone else and save the next person like him?" So he wrote a song about everything he didn't do, and that you need to do it to save the next person like him. This song helps you become a hero, and even though the song is quite depressing, happiness comes out of it. He became stronger from what happened, and became a hero in the making by publishing this song. He's saying, "be a hero. I didn't make up my characters, it really happened. You don't want it to happen to you. Be a hero. You can learn from my mistake."

Poor man doesn't understand that he didn't make a mistake. It's not his fault that his friend died. But, he could've done better. But if he already tried, no need to drown in reget. He'll get it right, soon.

It's good that it happened to him in a way, because he's telling you, "Do something. You don't want this to happen to you. Be a hero. Do what I didn't do." While mourning over the loss of his friend, he saved many other friends. That's a real hero.

But, in order to be a hero without a sob story, save lives without having to lose one. Find someone who's sitting alone at lunch and talk to them--- even give up your spot at a full table. If you're homeschooled, like me, you can still find a place to be a hero. Find a friend in your neighborhood. Talk to that girl who is twisting her hair in the corner at camp. Talk to teammate during warm-ups at cheer practice. Do something. You'll help a kid... Maybe even help yourself! Making friends benefits everyone, and will make you happier as well as the people!

Remember your time is now

"I'm staring at the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to change his ways. No message could've been any clearer if you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change."-Micheal Jackson.

I would show you the video, but we all know the song. You know the drill:

"R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me..."

Yeah. Respect me. I don't play, I want my respect.

"We're tired of banging our heads against the wall and working for someone else. We're people too, we like the birds and the bees... We'd rather die on our feet, than keep living on our knees."-James Brown.

We're Christians! We're tired of banging our heads against the wall (like how we keep running into sin) and working for someone else. We work for Jesus! Yes, we have fun, too. Even though living the Christian life may seem to the outside people like no fun, but we have more fun! Just because we have extra standards doesn't mean anything. We're people, too. But we'd rather die doing something than live doing nothing.

So, to be a hero, you have to respect.
Respect my face
Even though I'm young, it ain't wasted
People try to turn me around, ruin my life, but
Everyone can mean no one. I'm living for God! So respect me, please
Can you give me some ease?
Trust me, life can have more peace

If you'd just respect me, please.
This means to be a friend, but more than just the average.

-Is there in tough situations
-Is there in the fun times
-Supports you when it's most important
-You can still have lots of fun with them
-You spend a lot of time with them

-Is there in tough situations, BUT doesn't try to squeeze things out of your mouth that you don't want to talk about in the moment, respects your emotions.
-Is there in the fun times, AND helps you remember the other fun [and embarrassing!] times.
-Supports you, never brings you down (and they go to that big pageant every year, just for you).
-You still have the funnest times with them, no matter what!!!
-You spend a lot of time with them--- HELLO, that's why you're BEST friends!

So... how can you actually be a HERO this way? Like, a serious hero? A real hero?

Friends are important people to help.

Friends also can get into bad situations. If you're there in the good times and bad, when it comes time to tackle the ugly, it's easy to help and fix the problem. Friends get depressed--- no, we all get depressed. But if one day your friend really is depressed and the pain won't leave, and if they even bring up the thought of something horrible happening to themselves, like suicide, you can say, "Don't die. Because you're a great friend. If you die, many others can't live without you. Everyone will miss you, and besides, life has it's ups and downs. You don't want to miss out on all the fun things that are coming soon! And you don't want anyone else missing out because they're sad." That won't do much, but in your own wording, you're sure to help them feel a little better, and not have to be singing "How To Save A Life". But, if they do make a bad choice, you can say that you did something. That's a real hero.

Respect me... I'm a person, too!

Die on your feet... Don't live on your knees.

HEROES Week~They Don't Really Care About Us: FALSE!

Ever heard that one song by Micheal Jackson that says "All I wanna say is that they don't really care about us!" Well, that's false! God cares about us! But when bullying strikes, 'they' really don't seem to care about 'us'.

This is not the version I wanted. I wanted the Degrassi version, so if you want to see that, go to Degrassi-Hero. That version is the best version, so please, click the link. It's appropriate... well, if you count the song as appropriate.

This is how to be a hero. The Degrassi version of the video shows what really happens in high school, junior high, and even elementary. What is it saying?

This is not an elementary school problem anymore. Bullying happens everywhere, and happens to everyone. It sends a lie through your brain: "They don't really care about me, that's why they say they hate me. If I left the school, no one would miss me. They don't care that I'm miserable, I'm just a toy, an accesory they use to make themselves look good."

It's a lie. You try to laugh it off, say you feel fine, but it still hurts. I don't know about you, but I know that it feels horrible to be bullied. I've never been bullied like Rick (The kid who eventually grabs the gun in the Degrassi video) was, but there have been times when I spend hours trying to make myself look good, and someone says, "Your outfit is so tacky", or "Your perfume... no one wears CHANEL in the seventh grade!" It bothers everyone. It hurts. You do your best everyday and someone just goes up to you to make all that work go down the drain? It feels horrible.

Maybe you're bullied, and no one helps you. You can be a hero, and maybe next time, someone WILL help you. Maybe no one you know will ever grab a gun and shoot you. Maybe no one will bully you. But someday, whether you're homeschooled or done with school, you will encounter a depressed person or bullied person. You might see a bully. You might BE the bully.

I hope both videos helped you understand that bullying hurts. Just like how racism hurts, and Martin Luther King Jr. helped just a little bit, bullying hurts every person, every race. You can make a difference.

Stop the lie. Next time you see someone who thinks, "They don't really care about us", let them know about the person who does care about us. They may know who God is, but do they really? If you asked them to summarize who He is, could they do it?

Our time is now. Stop sitting on the couch, watching crime shows and thinking, "If only things had been different for them." Things can be different, and things will be different, once we learn that we don't have the time to wait anymore. We know that Jesus is coming soon, and only God knows when. So tell the world that God is coming soon, and someday, the pain really will end. But taking your own life is not an escape from the pain, it's the beginning. Because if you're not a Christian, let me tell you, Hell is not a fun place to be.

Stop waiting. Our time is now!!!


What's a better way to start a week than having Sunday AND Monday off??? Sounds like fun! Well, I was sick all last week, so today is just another day.
It started as a dream. Today, it continues as a reality. (And as a day off.)

Yesterday was MLK day! Milk day, Martin Luther King Jr. day... whatever you call it. You didn't have to watch the whole video. But if it meant anything at all to you, it meant the world to me.

Martin was a true hero. What's the definition?

"You could be a HERO, heroes do what's RIGHT. You could be a HERO, you might SAVE a life. You could be a hero, you could join the fight for what's right..."-Superchick.

It's easy. Just do whatever you think is right. It's easy. Don't just stand there and say "Hey, that's wrong..." Take a stand for what's right, don't just correct what's wrong!

Be a hero.

Help, because
Everyone has a chance and deserves proper
Respect. It's too quick for anyone's life to be
Over, and to listen and be a friend can really save a life.
Everyone needs to be a hero.
Stand for what's right.

That's the HEROES poem, written by me:)

Can't we all be heroes??? Can't we all do just that??? Help when things are wrong? Talk to people outside of your social circle? (That one will be hard.) Respect? (Don't make me spell it out!) Listen? Be a friend? Stand for what you believe in? We can all do that.

We can ALL be heroes. Starting today.
I might post later on today to make up for yesterday's not blogging.

New Books, New School

I've written stories about car accidents and princesses and gymnasts that you've seen. (The Interstate, Drama Queen Trilogy, Loser!) Now, it's time to add in some spice and suspension.

This writing career is SO hard.... while working on The Perfect Race Trilogy, I'm also writing my untitled book (formerly known as "You and Me") about mute Braeden and deaf Holli. Now, I have two other stories in mind.

Viva Las Vegas
Serafina Alderez is a young adult who heads to Las Vegas from her tiny town of Reno. At the age of twenty-one, she has a right to most anything now. At a small casino, (Sorry, but I just had to write it... it goes great with the plot. I recommend this book for whatever maturity level you are. No specific ages, my books are never too inappropriate, they never cuss or use things that could cause bad thoughts) she and some friends win big time money--- $800. It's not a million, but when the girls come close to running out of gas on the way without the money to support themselves, this is just enough to keep running.

When the girls leave the casino, they make a huge mistake. Obviously not realizing they were in Las Vegas, a town with lots more than gamblers, they separate the money outside, near the street, where anyone can count the money from a distance. Serafina (hereafter reffered to as Sera) notices strange things happening afterwards. Sera's (as in Sarah) friend Mallory buys a jasmine ring, just big enough for someone to want to kill. Back at the hotel, when the girls have finally become tired, they all get ready for bed. Sera decides to take a shower, and Mallory goes to get ice.

A shocking surprise happens when she leaves the shower. A ring---the exact same ring Mallory bought---is by the front door. "Perhaps Mallory dropped it," she thinks. She puts it on, just to try it on, but she can't seem to get it off, not tonight, anyway.

She keeps Mallory's ring on all night while she sleeps. When she wakes up, the ice is completely melted. When Sera goes to get more ice, she discovers dried blood making a trail on the carpet. Soon, it leads to a body. Mallory's own.

Who wants the money so much that they're willing to kill? In a few years, you'll know...
That's a brief preview of my very, very upcoming book of suspense, Viva Las Vegas.

Today, I spent like, (UGH....) three hours at the STEM school. After awhile, I felt sort of impatient and slightly dizzy, but the feeling passed quickly. I saw the requirements. (24 credits to graduate, and that includes math, science, and art:( UGH!!!!) I totally meet them! What don't I meet? Time management. Homework kills me. I've been doing good on getting it done on time, but sometimes the grades are still a little rough. I'm doing good in History, Language Arts, and P.E., if volleyball counts. But certainly not Science. I'm doing okay in MA7H3MA71CS, but not Science. Science is not my best friend this year. If I could see my grade... trust me, it ain't good. Geography is cool, too, I just haven't focused on it lately. But I like it. Right now, in Science, I'm learning about Volcanoes and all that Earthy stuff and I DON'T like it! It's not that I hate it, it's that I suck at it. Mrs. Maida is my teacher, and I do good on quizzes and tests, but NO.... NOT normal homework!

So yeah... to get to STEM, unless I want to go to TEM, I need to focus on Science. Which I do, but it ain't working. Science is important, considering it's a part of STEM's name. SCIENCE, Tech., Engineering, Math.

STEM won't be too hard. They take PyshicsIED, which is Pyshics and an introduction to engineering. Not too excited about engineering, but I've already taken Pyshics, (SOOOOO fourth grade) so I'll have an idea. Eighth grade will be a fun year. No, I won't get a netbook, but I've got a computer already, so I can talk to you! (Just imagine a world without computers... without BLOGGER!!) I hope that I like it at STEM. My writing career depends on it.

Lead Me... I Can't Do This Alone

Okay... this dude knows a lot about hair.... RAND()M>>>>>>

Okay, here's another snippet of my life.... a life that's full of fun, a life that's full of fantasies and thrillers alike, but also a life full of sacrifices.

This life.... is full of sorrow, regret, pain, fear, irritation, ignorance, and so on.

There's many other things that people sometimes fear to put on their blogs. There's things that are very touchy to mention. Things that people do, like witchcraft, profanity, and other things that I can't even say (I've got ten-year-olds reading this).

Us Christians (and many others, too) know the difference between right and wrong. Whether you're Christian or not, you were born to know the difference.

So why do we give in? It's not on purpose--- it's almost as if we don't know a differnce that we already know.

Music leads us. No matter what it is, it leads you. K-LOVE is doing a thing this month on listening to only Christian music until February. I'll tell you straight-forward right now--- I am NOT doing it. I've gotten to a point where on my iPod, you can find T.I. and Rihanna (only one song) and Beyonce and Taylor Swift and Colbie Caillat and OneRepublic. I love Christian music, but I like to listen to non-Christian, also.

This was a sacrifice. I'm keeping the T.I. and Rihanna song because it's not a bad song. But I also bought Single Ladies, (Put A Ring On It) and that's the worst song I have on my iPod. The cover of the CD.... I just shouldn't have bought that song. $1.29 of a---what I now know of---dumb song that doesn't make me happy. Beyonce is married, so where the heck does she get the single thing from?

I deleted it from my iTunes library. $1.29 that I could've spent on songs I like, like "Born Again" or "Reaching For You". But no, I bought a stupid Beyonce song.

It's still on my iPod, but I'm working on deleting it--- for good. I haven't listened to it in about six months.

Music is a weak spot for us all, because you may hear a song, find out the meaning and still you'll be like, "Well, I'm not the one that wrote it. If I don't sing along or pay attention to the lyrics, it's all good." It's a common compromise.

When I listen to music, I don't really care about lyrics unless it's Christian or I plan on singing it or something. I pay attention to things the average person wouldn't pay attention to. The drumbeat, the electric guitar, the bass, the cello, the violin, the small mess-up, the choir, the harmony, the timing, if it's on or off beat, the key, if it's in the right key or the wrong key, (It's hard to find clean versions of songs when you pay attention to that. I get annoyed easily by songs that aren't in the right key, so usually I just stop listening to the normal song and the clean version for that reason) the 8-counts and 6-counts, the kind of music, the fragrance it best works with, and sometimes I make my story plots from music. Music moves me. I played "Would You Rather", and a question was "Would You Rather live in a world without music, or television?" I was quick to say TV. Everyone stared like I was crazy. "I'd seriously rather live in a world without TV, I mean, it's not like I watch it that much anyway." And it's true.

I can be found watching shows that no middle school student cares about. While most kids my age watch Degrassi, Glee, (I liked that show before it got really bad in every single way... too much adult material) and stuff like that, I can be found watching NBC Nightly News, Criminal Minds, Downsized, Nightline, and Dateline. I'm a TV geek, so I see no problem with living in a world with no television. But music... Imagine a world without music. There'd certainly be no Lincoln Brewster or Sanctus Real. No worship. Nothing to jam to. No iPods.

Music is a way to show God that we love him, and for him to tell us how He loves us. How can God lead us without one of the most important tools in the world? Well, he can, but this is my favorite way. Music that is sweet... like a song.

Satan---right now I should say, Lucifer---was a beautiful angel. We all know the story. Cast out of Heaven, to make it short. So what was his role in Heaven? I'll tell you it was crazy important. Worship leader. He was like a Heavenly version of Lincoln Brewster. But he slipped away, and is worse than God in every way.

So... Does God hate Satan/Lucifer?
I want to say yes, but... the answer would have to be no. God is full of love and mercy, happiness and grace, joy and faith, hope and peace. Just like God in the father form can't die, (in Jesus form, yes. He became a man so he COULD die) He can't hate, either. He is all-loving. I think God is more disappointed towards Satan than feeling of hatred towards Satan. How could He hate His former angel? His creation?

Satan tempts us into his veil of bad music. He uses catchy tunes. You must admit, you can find yourself jamming to JAY-Z, Beyonce, Ke$ha, and Miley Cyrus. (I'm talking about the new Miley.)

So, if you just ask God to lead you and help you discover His music, you will find a dramatic change in your life.

"Lost and insecure.
You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor.
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were You? Where were You?
Just a little late...
You found me
You found me."
Fine Arts vs. 4-H Update!

They first announced the festival today at church/Youth. They said anyone could join the band, so I was like, "Okay... well, I like to sing and I really wanna do it. No one has told me I can't sing, let's give it a little try." I signed up for the band---- Just in case I change my mind, last minute or I'm ineligible for the competition (princess). Besides, it won't hurt to do it... as long as we don't make Nationals.

2011, Here I Am!

I was gonna contact you this morning (12 to 3 a.m.) but my youth group had a really fun almost-all-nighter


Okay, my dog killed it. Thanks, Lexi.

ANYWAY.... there was an all-nighter, almost, and it was SO much fun! It wasn't all night typically, but it lasted until 12:30 a.m., which is the morning, so that's all night for ya!

Happy new year! I'll be back tomorrow, or on Monday at the very least!
