Looking Out The Window On The South

Alright! Alright! So I haven't posted anything of any consequence! Wouldn't that be because possibly nothing of any consequence has occurred? Anyway, here's the rundown on what has gone on in the past two months, or as much as I can remember...

  1. I was (and still am) suspended in limbo over whether I can visit the Scarlet Pimpernel again this year. (I doubt it)
  2. I danced! (and had fun doing it) I know, you'd never believe that I would do this, but I did, and I'll be doing it again in about two weeks. I dance only country dances and swing, but any sort of melody gets me moving. The fun part is not so much the dancing as the people who are doing it (all my friends)
  3. I had a successful game party (but I've elaborated on that already)
  4. I have composed and recorded my own music (I meant to post the video but forgot. I'll do it eventually) Also, I learned part of the melody from How to Train Your Dragon. (30 seconds)
  5. My dog, who turned 4 years old within three days of April 14th, ate my room a month before that (big deal... all the homework was old.... but he did break my watch, which I will be replacing soon...
  6. My mom's herd of goats grew even larger. It now totals 16 induviduals.
  7. A circus came to town. It was fun to watch but not as big as my memories (different circus). The one we saw claims to be the only operating circus left in America.
  8. We recently came back from a two day trip down to Oxnard, where we saw a small but interesting museum devoted to model tall ships.
  9. Through all this, the countdown to my Confirmation has shrunk steadily. It will happen on May 2oth, and I will be Confirmed under the name of St. Francis De Sales, who is a patron saint of writers (connection). this evening, my Sponsor and I will be attending Mass. Something special is going to happen, but we don't know exactly what yet.
  10. I went on a retreat with my CCD class that may or may not have changed my life. (I'm not really sure what, if any changes, have occurred yet, but I don't know myself very well...
  11. I have become Mr. Genius Man! (pause) Oh hmph. You knew I was kidding on that one...
  12. Final random thoughts: The best line of advice I have ever heard from media is Yoda's "Do or do not. There is no try." I should really listen to that. The most inspirational things I ever heard from people who are special to me were "as soon as you were born,you were doing good" "You are-withoutquestion-THE MAN!, and "I've known you for a long time, and you are smarter and stronger than you think you are" (situations not described and sources not named to avoid embarrassment).
may you reign long and well
    p.s. can anyone tell me how to remove the white background from my signature? That's why I don't use it often... 
    p.p.s. My signature does not appear to be functioning anyway... : (

  1. I don't have any idea how to change your signature.
    That's cool that your getting confirmed! Congrats!!!
    I'd like to learn how to dance sometime. ☺
