Hello fine people,

   I haven't posted in six days, and maybe that doesn't seem like very long, but it feels like an eternity to me. I just feel so drained of ideas for posts. It's like I want to post, but I can't brew up any quality ideas for them. So, I've decided to ramble on and on for you. Potentially, on and on and on. We'll see where it goes.

  So I turned fifteen yesterday. It feels weird to say. Next month, I'll have been blogging for five years. Five years. That feels strange to say too. Because, this blogging journey has been such a crazy one. Between switching from Homestead Blogger to Blogger, and then all the different blogs I've had, it's just been crazy. I don't have as many friends in the blogging world as I used to either. I'm not as crazy about posting as I used to be. Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE posting, it's just different now. I'm also not as into giveaways and things as I used to be. But, I'm fifteen! Fifteen, guys!

 I reread some old journal entries of mine this past week, and I was shocked by the difference in me from the eight short months since I started writing in that particular journal, to now. I've changed a lot just in the past eight months. In the past six months. Heck, probably even in the last two months! I feel like that's how my teenage years thus far have been, just constant changing, constant discovery. I guess that's a part of being a teenager. Discovering who you truly are before you reach the "real world" and have to become a functioning adult. I've changed so much over the past eight months, but I'm only fifteen. I'll no doubt continue changing as my teen years go on. I might even change more before tomorrow! Who knows?

 I'm going to camp on Thursday. It's not like a regular camp, it's a training camp up at a mission organization near us. I'm a little nervous, but I'm sure it'll be great!

 Lately I've been finding myself wondering more and more about what the future holds for us. Mainly because, we've been living with my grandparents for eight months now and I just wonder where we'll go, what we'll do. 

 That's about it for today. How are you doing?

Summer Plans

                     This summer I have a few ideas of things I'd like to do. I'm not exactly sure what I WILL do, but I definitely know what I want to do. 

                                                  (I'd love to just spend my whole summer here)

                I want to spend TONS of time at the beach. Hopefully. I haven't lived this close to the beach in years, and I'm excited to spend the summer just lounging on the beach. Okay, not the whole summer!

                If I could find some sort of job that would be good. Especially considering I'm gonna start saving money for college. *fingers crossed*

               At the end of next week I'll be going to camp for three days so that's cool! But the rest of my summer is basically free. Maybe I'll go on an adventure! Who knows?

                                         Happy (almost) Summer!

Just One of those Days

                     Today has been just one of those days where I want to go to the beach and spend the whole day there. I want to get my usual clam cakes and chowdah (also known as chowder), play in the water, sit in the sand, take way too many pictures of the ocean, breathe in the nice beach air, and listen to the sounds of almost nothing. I tend to have a lot of these days, because the beach is one of my favorite places on earth. It makes everything seem right with the world, just for a little bit.

One of My Favorites

                   I've always loved this. I could never find the other picture I liked with these words on it, but this one's pretty don't you think? :)

His Presence Everywhere


            I love seeing and feeling God's presence everywhere. It's been more evident in my life lately. Or maybe I've just noticed it more. 

            I feel his comfort in the spring breezes that come through the windows, airing out the house and making everything fresh and new. I see his creative handiwork in the Spring flowers all in bloom. I feel his peace in beautiful beach sunsets. I see his love in the beautiful hazel eyes of my baby cousin. I hear his voice in the whispers of the wind, just before it rains. I feel his joy in the laughter of people all around me. I see his light in the eyes of the brightest people. He's everywhere. All the time.
