So, today wasn't the best day ever.

Why's that?

1) Today would've been 6 months for me and Anthony... not gonna lie, that alone would've made this day suck. :(

2) My mom hadta to go to the ER tonight. She was in alotta pain and she's been real sick all day. She's gonna get her gallbladder removed sometime very, and I'm really nervous for her. Everybody I talked to about it said it's extremely painful. She knew she was probably gonna get it removed, but she really wanted to wait awhile, 'cause we're leaving for vacation in a week. :(

3) I hadta work today, instead of being with my family.

Ugh. Now I'm just sittin' at home, basically by myself (Carla's in her room, asleep). And, I haveta get up early tomorrow to work all freaking day. 9-5:30. Just perfect.

OH, AND! My freaking iPod's in the van, which my dad took to the hospital. I need that thing to sleep. Ughhhhhhhh. I love my life.

Good day, good day indeed. (:

Today was grand, even though it's not like the day's over. I hadta wake up kinda early (even though 9:45 isn't that early for most people :b) to mow my yard. It's whatever though, I get to zone out for around an hour, listen to my iPod, and I get paid 10 dollars. It's a good deal, most days. (:

Then, I finally got to go to the pool with Jenna! Yayyy. I <3 pools, & I <3 Jenna. Oh, and I got significantly tanner too, which is nice. Being hispanic, I find it somewhat upsetting when white people are like, 10 shades darker than me. Hah, so...tan lines, ftw. I kinda look alittle red on my face...and back..and shoulders..and stomach. But I refuse to believe that I have sunburn, because I've never gotten sunburn in my life, & I REFUSE TO GET IT NOW. Plus, it doesn't even hurt. I'm good. :)

Oh, and I finally got Avril Lavigne's new CD! I'm really happy with it, I've been listening to it non-stop. I remember listening to her when I was like, 11 and wanting to be exactly like her. She's definitely one of my favorite people to listen to. Favorite tracks you should listen to?

1. Everybody Hurts
2. Push 
3. Wish You Were Here 
4. Not Enough 
5. Darlin

Also; I Love You, Smile (if you haven't already heard it on the radio), & Stop Standing There. That's basically the whole album minus a couple songs, but oh well. I got tired of doing the links.

So...yeah. Driving with dad later, yay I guess. And dying my hair tomorrow, ahhhh. Jenna might bleach it first, to get the color better or whatever, but I'm not so sure yet. Then I'd haveta be really blonde for a day, and my eyebrows are an issue..haha. I'll figure that out later.

Anddd our smoke alarm just went off from my mom making pizza. Later. :D

Blueberry tea > all other weaker beverages.

^ It's a fact. I'm currently drinking it out of a Christmas "Tis the Season" mug. :)

So, things have been super crazy lately. Lots going on in my personal life, but not all good things. Actually, most of them suck. But that's aiiight, they'll pass. "Whatever's meant to be will work out perfectly", says Avril Lavigne. <3

What to blog about...

I've been going through this thing lately, where I just wanna grow up. I wanna be in college right now, and get on with the rest of my life. Not be this unrespected, little 16-year-old that no one listens to anyways. I wanna be able to drive, and go places without a curfew. I don't know why I've been feelin' this way. It might be all dat personal shtuff, or all the music I've been listening to 24/7. Alotta "Ugh,IhatemylifeIhatemyparentsscreweveryone" and the occasional "Ugh,IhateboysIcandosomuchbetterI'mgonnagooutandparty" music. Maybe both, I don't really know.

So as a result of all that teenage angsty stuff, I've come to the conclusion that Ima do this, or atleast something very similar. Looklooklook. 

I'm excited. It's not gonna be quite as red as that, more brownish red. Kinda what I have already, but...more. And I got it mom-approved, SO IT'S OFFICIAL. :D

Yuuuup, that's about it. I'm out of blueberry tea, so Ima go get more & then get ready to go to my favorite place in the world; Conewago Coffee. Laterlater. <3

Btw: I'm currently listening to "Nothing Even Matters" by Big Time Rush. I don't know why I'm even going back and adding this, but I finally gave them their own station on Pandora. I LOVE THEM AND IF YOU DON''re lame. :)

I just wanna know if our love's enough to make you stay.

Blog title from Stay by Jamestown Story. That man gets me. TRUEFACT: We used to message eachother alot on Myspace. Don't believe me? I have no proof anymore, but it really happened. He cool, (:

I've been listening to alotta music lately. Katlyn's showed me alotta songs to help me get through the past couple days, & I really appreciate it. I guess this'll just be a music blog, 'cause I don't really have much else to say.

"I miss your family and I miss all our friends. If you had to do it over would you do it again? 'Cause I would, this means something more to me. There's a hole in my heart where you used to be." You Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic - A Day To Remember.

"We said forever, that you would never let me go. No I don't wanna, but I gotta let you go." Let U Go - Ashley Parker Angel.

"I still wish you the best of luck baby, and don't go thinking this was a waste of time. I couldn't forget you if I tried." You Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic - A Day To Remember, again. :b

"If I leave, bet you'll wish I stayed. Make you regret all the things you said to me. You know that time can't help us now." If I Leave - A Day To Remember.

"I pray your brakes go out running down a hill. I pray a flower pot falls from a window sill & knocks you in the head like I'd like to. I pray your birthday comes & nobody calls. I pray you're flyin' high when your engine stalls. I pray all your dreams never come true. Just know wherever you are honey, I pray for you." Pray For You - Jaron and the Long Road to Love, haha.

"'Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind. From the day we met, to you makin' me cry. And It's just too bad, you've already had the best days of your life." Best Days of Your Life - Kellie Pickler. <3

"The best you can hope to be is now just a bittersweet memory." Breaking - Anberlin.

I miss Creation. ):

I don't really have as much to talk about Creation compared to Puerto Rico. It was a fun time with the Bundy's just like last year. :D

The concerts were cool, even if we didn't get to be as close as last year. Family Force 5, Skillet, Owl City, Tobymac, Tobymac, Tenth Avenue North, Hawk Nelson, Emery, The Almost, & more than I'm currently forgetting.

Work wasn't quite as fun as this year, but it was still great. I got to see Bobbi, who almost everybody doesn't know, but she's freaking awesome. The most energetic slightly older woman in the whole world, and just that happy person you always wanna be around. From the dances she made up, to her making every car that passed through gates scream 'cause they finally got to Creation, she was a riot. I just love her. I asked her why she was so happy one morning, and she replied "Oh Alicia, I'm just high on life. I love Jesus, and I love people. My life is wonderful, and I just love living. I think everyone should, it's the best gift He gave us." <3

Oh, & who could forget storytime every night before bed. Hark, I'm in agony. Tik Tok. I think I upset her. Orange balls. Snozums. There she blows, MOBY DEBBIE! I think I'm having a heart attack! Dad, you are such a JERK. Shut up! Ahhh, fun. :)

So...yeah. Life's been pretty boring since those two things ended. Just working and hanging out now. Which is all well and good, but I definitely miss being in places other than home. The only other exciting thing this summer for me is vacation in Cape May for a week in August. Yayyyyyy. :)

Kaythat'sall. <3

I miss Puerto Rico. :(

I haven't blogged since I got home from Puerto Rico or Creation. Myohmy, how two weeks changes everything.

Obviously when you go to two God-related things for a long time worshiping, serving, and meeting new people, you're gonna leave pumped for God. Which definitely happened. Like, alotttt. I think I'm gonna write two seperate blogs on both things, sound cooool? Kgood. (:

So...Puerto Rico was cool. And crazy. And different. Realllly different. I went with one of my closest friends, Hallie. I've known her for...ever? :b We've grown up in the same church together. Anyways, everyone else in our group was from all over the US. One girl, Abby, from Washington. Aaron from Maryland. Abunch from Virginia. Some from Pennsylvania. I don't remember everyone else, but there was 18 of us total. We lived in the poorest community in Caimito. There was a huge iglesia de los hermanos (Church of the Brethren) community center in the middle, which is our denomination. We stayed ina little house, with no air conditioning of course, and crappy water. It was about 100000000 degrees at all times, which was probably the worst thing to deal with. That & bug bites. :(

It was a huge culture shock, not everything being in English. In fact, nothing was really in English. And only a handful of people could speak it. That was really weird, and kinda frustrating for both sides at time. Pretty much all the spanish I'd learned at school didn't help. It was way different, and they didn't use half the words I did. Hah, one little boy thought I was speaking English when I asked him a question in spanish. It was that baddd.

I absolutely loved our group. I grew so close to everyone, even those I wouldn't have expected to. We were like a family. A really weird, messed up family, :b. From David's racist comments to Troy's swagger, to Clara's heavy southern accient, to Stephanie's ptyeradactyl hiccups, to Aaron's Bin Ladden book about Saudi Arabia's politics. Some drama happened down there involving me, and they really helped me through it. Dr. Phil time with Phil, talks with David, and todas chicas circle helped so much. I love all of them. (:

So many memories, I know I'll never forget. Almost dying in the Puerto Rican's insane game called Rescue. Almost missing our flight home, and getting stuck all by ourselves at the airport. The last night when Ramone kissed Abby, :). Malo boy. Waiting two hours to get our food at this blue restaurant. The beautiful views in Old San Juan. The awkward fight between Mark & Clara. ME OWNING AT THIS AWESOME GAME CALLED FARKLE :). Troy getting hurt, every single day. Saying a prayer for whoever had bathroom trash that day. Finding the cockroach in the shower the first day. Feeding and almost adopting Jorge the chicken. Fighting off the crazy kids that attacked our house and broke our window. Crazy community water balloon fights. Our failed attempt at singing in spanish. & So many more. <3

It's just kinda sad, ya know? When experiences that are super awesome are over, it reallly sucks. But you get to go back to what you're used to : friends, air conditioning, working toilets, a bed. Most of the children and families there don't get that. We get to taste what their life is like for a week, then go back to ours like nothing happened. Those people are so amazing, and don't deserve to live like that. I definitely miss them, and I hope to be able to see them again. & I do plan on going back, hopefully in December. <3
