365/365!!! get the picture. I finally made it. ONE WHOLE YEAR!
Well, it's been fun. In case you were wondering, this project was a great one for me to accomplish. At first it was fine. Easy peasy. But then towards the middle it got harder to take a picture everyday. I had to make myself do it on most days otherwise I would forget or become too lazy. I do admit that a lot of my pictures were last minute thoughts and super crappy, but whether my pictures were good or bad, they still made me think. And by thinking, I had a certain creative side of me come out that has helped me throughout.
You may be as sad as me to know that this is my last picture for this blog. But don't you worry your little pants off. I have some more ideas in mind that I'm still thinking about for future photo posts for y'all to look at and enjoy. So I'll try and keep you posted somehow.
and in case you're wondering if I'll ever do this again... the answer is HECK YES! and like I said, I'll keep you posted.
thanks to everyone who helped me keep going. Thank you for your ideas, support, and especially the comments. I looked forward to those.
goodnight and goodbye!

I was having fun editing them today.
technically one year from when I started was supposed to be yesterday (October 20th), so maybe something went wrong. oh well!


These one's here are for my dear friend Amanda Wennstig (mainly becuase me not uploading was breaking her heart). I know they're not the greatest pictures, like I said they were kind of last minute, but the little compact mirror is one of the things she got me from Hong Kong and I absolutely love it. It's beautiful.
p.s. these pictures really aren't that good quality because it was dark, so they're a little grainy. sorry!


I haven't uploaded in a while. Some of you know that already and I am deeply sorry. But I'm back, so don't worry.
You know what sucks more than me not uploading for a few days?? Well let me tell you, I DID take pictures both on Monday and yesterday, but yesterday when I tried to upload them on the computer, they somehow magically got deleted. So pretty much I don't have the original pictures for those days, but I promise you I did take some. So I just took a few other random one's last night to make up for them.

This is a page from my journal that I was working on on Monday night. I usually don't share my journal with people, so consider yourself lucky. But on Sunday I was drawing these weird people that I learned how to draw in 7th grade cartooning and I remembered how much I liked them. So I drew two people (a boy and a girl) kind of dancing and behind them the page is filled with lyrics from 'On the Wing' by Owl City.

"I am floating away lost in a silent ballet I'm dreaming you're out in the blue and I am right beside you

Awake to take in the view"

Let's look back through today shall we?
In first period I had a test that I'm pretty sure I aced. If you have any questions about Native Americans just ask me, I'm practically pro. Then I went to advisory where Mr. Barbour talked to me about volunteering.. ew, then Film Analysis where we kept watching The Pianist. We still have a little bit to finish, but it's not a bad movie. I'm just not 100% interested in it because it's about part of the holocaust and I can NOT watch stuff about that. I just can't. So I haven't been watching every scene, but the overall story and picture is good. I'm interested in finding out what happens at the end.
OH! so then I was in the library during lunch (normal) and we have these HUGE windows that overlook the gym, field and the ocean... so I was just sitting there talking to LeAnne when all of a sudden this huge group of people were going down towards the gym because apparently there was going to be a fight. And guess what? there was. It was pretty intense too. But I just liked watching it. haha
Then math... then home.
Mom picked me up and bought me this delicious banana bread from a cool bakery down the hill from my school. :)
Then we watched Tyra ( I love that woman), then went and got our nails done.
I haven't had a manicure is a loooooong time, and oh man it was amazing.
Please, if you have extra time (or money), please treat yourself to a manicure or pedicure. Seriously, it felt like I was in heaven and the whole experience was so relaxing and peaceful.

these are my nails and my sisters. I bet you can't guess whose is whose...=P
oh and i saw these pairs in the window and the sun hitting them looked really neato!

7 days!!

Today was bored when I got home so I went up to my room to change... again (because I change my outfit multiple times a day), and I realized that I have a lot of dresses. More than this too. I love all of them, but the thing is, is that I don't really wear them all. Or close to any for that matter. I mostly just buy them because they're cute and I get them for cheap. So I just tried all of them on and here ya go!
my version of 27 dresses, but with a lot less.

Putting them together didn't turn out my way though. So if you want to see them full size plus more of my pictures, here you go...

p.s. 8 MORE DAYS!!
oh yea, which one's your favorite?

haha, 356/365... ALMOST THERE! only nine more days!

Today was a... short day. We got out of school at 11:50 becuase of a power outage. All last night and today it has been rainy, windy, cold and crazy stormy. It's still going on too. So I got home early, put on my sweats and sweatshirt, and just chilled on the couch watching tv and trying to keep warm.
I hate the weather, but I love how it made my day turn out.
p.s. this is my new bedding! =)


1o more days!
Monday: went to IKEA!!!! my mom took us there and we were aloud to get one thing for our rooms. So I got a new down comforter. Since my old one is too small for my new bed I've wanted a new one, and IKEA is the best place to get them!!
I was sad that I didn't find an orange one though, but that's ok.
1. when I'm older I am going to have an orange couch
2. this is what Graham did while we were shopping
3. best chocolates EVER! we can't leave IKEA without buying them

here's an idea, "say 'hey I love you'" to someone you love tomorrow.
p.s. If you haven't heard this song I think it's about time that you do that. It's really fun.
and the blurry picture was a total accident. But I kind of liked it. so I kept it.


Saturday: we went to the Kroc center to watch a volleyball tournament. This was during it. I was trying to get a picture of the score board and this girl was apparently saying peace to her friends, at the same time. I thought that was kind of cool though because it was totally coincidence.

The picture's not the best though. oh well


Friday, was... Friday. I actually can't really remember Friday. But I do know that I went to the library because I need a good book to read. I haven't read in a long time. sshhh...
So I go to the library, to get a book, and I leave with 3 teen vogue magazines, 2 cd's, 1 seventeen magazine and 1 movie. But hey, at least I enjoy all of them! And you should be happy to know that I'm catching up on the latest fashions and music.

I got a letter from Colleen today. She sent it in this envelope that she made out of a magazine page. Isn't is super cool? I just loved the picture, so I wanted to try and copy it. It didn't turn out quite the way I wanted, but I was tired of trying. So this is it.
Thanks Colleen!
p.s. I'm almost to 365!!! I think once I get to 10 days I'm going to start counting down. that's so soooon!

I finally got it! Relient K's new (and 7th) album 'Forget and Not Slow Down' is in stores now.

I've been waiting so long to hold this CD in my hands and today was my day. Oh I am so happy. I could listen to Matthew Thiessen sing all day everyday for the rest of my life and never get tired of hearing him. No joke, listening to his voice just puts me at peace and I love the feeling their music brings me.
This album is kind of sad to listen to because Matt T describes it as the break up album. Not that their breaking up, because I would never allow that, but most of the songs describe his emotions towards his break up with his girlfriend. That's why he say's:
"All these songs are written out of a good state of mind, and that’s what the songs are encouraging people to do - find that in their own lives. If you’re going through turmoil, you can find your way through it.”
-Matthew Thiessen
Matt Hoopes also said this in the bio on their myspace:
"No matter what trials and tribulations you encounter in your life, it doesn’t have to be the end of your story. You can move on and be happy and experience joy.”
-Matt Hoopes
I liked it


How many peace things can one girl have?
5 pairs or earrings
1 shirt
1 sock
1 necklace
and 1 bracelet

I like the moon.
I especially like it when it's still up at 7 in the morning

Owl City facebook status lyric for today: "You and I left our troubles far behind, but I still have just one more question on my mind..."


Yesterday (Sunday) I spent the day with some of my most favoritest people EVER. It was super fun and very much needed. <3
We spent the afternoon playing dress up in Goodwill, going to Staples, climbing a semi scary sandy hill on the side of the road, laughing, and just loving being together again.
p.s. the moon/sky looked so cool last night

I've been taking lots and lots of pictures wit Stephanie and Graham in the past 24 hours+
It's tiring, stressful, yet really fun and makes us feel like creative and funny people... because we are!
and please don't let the sun fool you, if was far from warm.

October 3rd is...

Virus appreciation day.

Stephanie, Graham and I have decided to celebrate and take pictures for random and not so random holiday's. Just for fun, but also for you guys to enjoy. This is our first one, and in honor of the Nora (Noro) virus. Mostly only camp people will get this one, but don't worry, there's more to come for everyone to enjoy!
Stephanie is honoring the virus with a certificate of appreciation,
Graham is showing what this nasty virus does to people,
and I am making sure everything gets sprayed and disinfected with bleach, not tirad!


*oh my goodness! I'm almost there. I'm almost to 365 days. Only 20 days left to go. That's exciting!!
So today my mom, Stephanie and I went to The Salvation Army thrift store for a little bit. I got this beautiful dress, Stephanie got a dress, and my mom got footy pajamas (now we're twins!!). But since my mom's an officer we got a 25% discount, plus the 50% store wide discount. So in total we got 75% off which made everything we bought only $5!! Just one of the perks of my parents working for The Salvation Army. =)
oh and my mom got me In-n-out for lunch!

Laugh.. laughing is one of the greatest things you will ever experience. Like when you laugh so hard that you can't breathe, you start to turn red and start to cry. There's not a lot of greater feelings in the world.

thanks to Nancy for buying this for me.
