Haiti Video

This video is at a church in the mountains that we went to. I'm not sure of what the village was called, but I know it was in the mountains. Obviously... haha. We rode up there on mules/donkeys/horses and walked back down. Nate gave a sermon and Robensun translated it. We ate at the pastor's house twice, once before and once after church. The one before was a snack or something I guess, and the one after was lunch. After church we went around and prayed for people in the village that couldn't/didn't come to church that day. There were many different reasons why they were prayed for, and I don't remember all of them. Anyways, here is the video. :)

The Flip Flip Test

What Your Flip Flops Say About You
You are crazy, and mostly in a good way.
You have wild ideas, many of which seem drug induced.

You are open to new experiences, and you are a bit of a drifter.
You're never sure what you'll be doing tomorrow.. and you like it that way.

Your ideal warm weather place: the Gold Coast of Australia

What color should your toenails be?

I thought this was good for summer! Too bad I don't have any white... :( oh well I like my new pink color and blue. Haha.

Your Toes Should Be White
A little funky and a little fresh, you're constantly evolving your flirting style.

Your ideal guy: A witty brainiac with hottie potential

Stay away from: Overly dorky guys who become obsessed with you.
Ha! Oh gees... like the last one mom?? LOL good advice right there.

Good Pictures

Since Paige was such a meanie about the last post, I decided to show her up with some good pictures. What a jerk she is :)





All these pictures were taken of flowers around our house. They are not edited in any way, shape, or form. The only thing that has been done to them is that I put the "close-up" setting on my camera when I took these. But that is not editing. Their purpose is to show Paige what's up. :) ((In case she reads this... don't worry my dear I still love you. But you need to know when you are WRONG! haha ily babe))

Photography

This is tree doo. Or so I call it :). On Monday I got bored and was taking pictures outside and experimenting with the settings on my camera. I was taking pics of the flowers around the tree in our front yard, and moved around closer to the tree to get a good view. When I looked down for some reason, this is what I found. Trust me, I was weirded out. But not enough to leave it alone. Oh no, not me. I felt it. It's wood. Therefore, you have tree doo. :D
I'll try posting some real pictures that I took later. Well this is real too, but the good ones I mean.

Princess :)


This is our princess. His name is Jeanbeauvis.

Just Remembered

BTW- I am officially 14 and a half today. Thought I should get that out there. :)

Sorry it's late. I'm being quiet, and Logan isn't even sleeping. Plus I can sleep in for a while tomorrow, until like 9:00ish anyways. Haha... not so much sleeping in, but I gotta run in the morning and then shower and then leave at 11:15 or so. I'll be okay, no worries dudes. ;P

Sorry sorry sorry

I haven't updated in a while, but usually I don't get on the computer until pretty late and then I forget. But no excuses, I'm updating now.

There has been a couple times this week that I'm like "ooh I gotta blog about that."

First of all - how would you pronounce QAJAQER ? I saw it on a liscense plate just like that and I have no idea what it's supposed to mean. I think it sounds like "carjacker" if you say it with a French accent. It kind of sounds like "cuz I care" with the accent too. Lol. My mom thinks I'm crazy. (Shocking right? :P)

Another thing is this amazing little girl on America's Got Talent I saw tonight. She is ADORABLE! Her name is Katelyn and she is 4 years old, and she sung. It was gorgeous and soooo freakin' cute. I want my kids to be that cute someday. :) I want to look on YouTube and see if there is a video of her on there, if there is I will definitely be posting it later. They said she is the youngest person to go to Las Vegas (the next stage of the show).

There was another guy on the show that was singing opera. It was really good. He moved on to Las Vegas. I liked him though because he cried when they were talking about his mom. She hadn't died or anything, because he called her after he was done performing, and I didn't hear why he got like that about her, but it was cool because he wasn't afraid to show his emotions.

I know it's kind of late. But I had to stay up and watch America's Got Talent. As of today, it's my new addiction. I am in love with that show. It's funny, and interesting, and entertaining, and a good laugh sometimes, and adorable all at the same time. Best. Show. Ever. :)

Today I was babysitting the Sall's like I do every summer, and we were outside on the trampoline. And I fell off. It was pretty funny, and I didn't get hurt at all. But I was embarassed a lot, thankfully only Lydia and James were out there to see it. Whew...

Tomorrow I get to go out for lunch with Bernie! YAY I haven't seen her in a really long time! She is my almost-step-grandma. Her and my grandpa were going to get married, but then my grandpa died, so yeah. My ASG. :) haha I like it. Then when we get back, I am going to hang out with Tiffany for a while again. After that, I am going to church at night to watch the kids of some families that are going to be there for something. Oh gees.

I have been doing my running, so Anna and Mrs. Hill don't have to kill me. Since it was my whole plan anyways, and Anna took it. Jerk. Haha just kidding. I love her :) I haven't been going as fast as I was before, but I don't want to feel sick afterwards. Plus my only motivation for this really is that I don't want Mrs. Hill to be able to run farther than me. Lol. Ain't she special?

Ooh and I have been working on my Creole. Tipap made Tiffany promise that she was going to learn Creole for this summer, and she was like "Ok, Tori will too..." So now I have to learn Creole because he made me promise that I would. But I don't care really, I like learning Creole. It's a fun language. Plus I have motivation for that. 1. So Tipap won't beat me up for not keeping my promise 2. So I can talk to my friends without a translator more often/for longer.

The other day I went to Meijer with my mom, and she gave me some money to get a Starbuck's. :D YAY I ♥ Starbuck's. But Starbuck's doesn't ♥ me I guess. First I got 2 really bad brain freezes that wouldn't go away. (Yes brainfreeze from coffee, I got a carmel frapp. (which is cold in case anyone didn't know.)) Then I almost choked on it from coughing. Cold stuff makes me cough, it's weird. And finally, I was taking the lid off to get the whipped cream out, and I got a cut on my finger from the lid. Like a paper cut, but not from paper. So a plastic lid cut I guess. haha. It didn't hurt until today :( stupid coffee. It was good though.

Long enough? Now you have everything I would've updated about for the past few days all in one post. Suckers :P Just kidding.

T♥R!

Party!!

(Read the one below this first please) :)

On a happier note, tomorrow I get to go to Dani's party. Yay!! That should be fun, I will make sure to tell you allll about it. Well probably Thursday I will, because the party isn't done until 10 pm or so.

Her pool is open so we are going swimming. I decided that I needed to tan a little bit to prepare for this so I don't blind anyone ;). This afternoon, me and my mom were laying out for a while. I hope my tan worked... pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease... After about a half hour or so, I got sick of it and went inside to put on a t-shirt. Then I went outside again and played with Ember. We were playing soccer, and fetch which turned into keep-away which turned into eat-the-stick which turned into get-away-from-me-stupid-human-I'm-tired. So we went inside. My soccer ball was a little bit flat anyways and we don't have a pump for it. Plus it's kind of boring playing by yourself too long when you have no skills at all really. Haha. Yeah that's me.

(p.s. Can anyone tell me why I feel so sick after running these past couple of times? I was running a lot before this, like last week, and I was fine. But now anytime I run I feel like I'm going to barf. I'm pretty sure it's not because I'm pushing myself either, because I ran two days in a row and cut 24 seconds off the second day. I'm stumped...)

Running

This summer, my goal was to build up to run 3 miles by the time we go to Haiti. (July 19)

Right now, that goal does not seem likely.

I decided that I'd better go run because Anna was going to do this running thing with me, and I figured I better keep my promise of doing this. Yesterday I biked 5 miles and did some ab stuff instead. So today I wanted to go run (well, I didn't want to, but I needed to). This week we were going to run a mile every day except Sunday when we do ab stuff. So I went out a little bit ago to go run... and I got half-way and thought I was going to puke. Then I walked for a little while, then partly sprinted for a little, then walked again, then basically sprinted (as fast as I could go at this moment really, which was still faster then my normal running speed, but not quite a sprint) back home.

Now I feel like I am going to puke. :( If this happens, I will be sure to inform you. ;)

Summer Vacation

Today was my first official day of summer vacation. I accomplished practically nothing. :) It was a good day.

I helped my mom with the Manna Meals inventory stuff after lunch, and then we went to the Yonker's house and talked to Brenda for a while. Then I came home and got on the computer. Ate dinner, and now I am writing this. See? I accomplished nothing.

P.S. I changed the pictures on the side, so check them out when you can... they aren't really pictures this time, they are sayings that I found online.

For my pal Anna


I found this picture, and it reminded me of her, because she loves giraffes. :) You've got to admit, they are pretty stinkin' cute. Except I would probably pee my pants (from laughter or suprise/scaredness) if I saw this... so yeah. They would still be cute, it would just take a little bit for it to sink in how extremely cute this little bugger was... scaring the snot out of me. :P haha.

No More Excuses

I guess I have no excuses for being too busy anymore huh? Why, you ask...?

BECAUSE IT'S SUMMER VACATION FINALLY!!!! WHOOP!!

(not like I'm excited or anything though) ;)

Also, who's a highschooler? I am! YESSS! 4 years left of school! Unless you include college, then I have 8 years, but 4 years until I graduate from Allendale!! YAY!

And I get to go to Haiti in 43 days I think it is now! I am also excited this time too, in a little bit different kind of way, because Anna is coming. I can't wait to show her how amazing Haiti is :) But she doesn't need me to figure it out. Aaron isn't coming this time, and neither is Lance. :( Boo... That makes me sad, I haven't gone without either of them yet. (Only 2 trips, but still...)

On a different subject, my mom's knee is grody. Way to ruin a photo shoot mom... ;)

My hair is annoying me. I want my long hair back... :( oh well. What can I do??

Running is soooo much fun, I love it! Unless it's for gym, when I have to do it, then I don't like it much.

The weather is BEAUTIFUL!! Summer is the best! (This humidity and heat is nothing, so anyone who is going to Haiti for the first time... a.k.a. Mrs. Hill and Anna and Zack... get used to it :D This will seem almost chilly when we get back.)

AHHH I can't wait for Haiti!! Eekkk I am so excited!

Sorry that was extremely random stuff, but now you know how my mind works kind of haha or not. Um... I can't think of too much else to say... so I guess that's it.
