Yes, I Happen To Still Be Alive...

Hey Peeps.

  I'm sorry for my absence.  I am still alive.  And I couldn't post Tacit Tuesdays this week because we are out of internet!  So, rather, I am going to quickly blab, and then let you all go on your merry way.

  For one, on another blog a couple weeks ago I won a contest for a notebook!  It is homemade from AUSTRALIA and it says on the front: And The Story Begins.  Hopefully at some point you can see a picture of it.  It is going to be my poetry and all-around, random thoughts journal.  I really like it.

  This weekend we are going to go to Virginia.  My grandparents are working there right now, so we are leaving tomorrow and going to stay until Saturday.  I am looking forward to it but I am sick!  Which is really weird for me.  I mean, really weird.  This past winter my entire family got sick with the flu and were sick for about a week, and the worst I got was having the sniffles for one day.  Well, now, it will be a week tomorrow that I have had a sore throat, coughing, sneezing, stuffed up nose, runny nose, etc etc.  It's been terrible. Especially when I have zero/negative amount of time off school.  So...I am been struggling this past week.  But it is okay.  Hopefully I will start to get better tomorrow.
These last couple weeks have been good.  I have some rough points.  There are times when I really struggle with some things, but this last week has been...freeing somehow.  I don't know.  It's just that right now I have such a "light" feeling.  I'm okay.  I mean, we have to live life.  There are times that things don't seem to go right, and there are times when we get stressed or upset, but we shouldn't.  Staying in God's word and praying are the most wonderful things.
One of my recent struggles has been with school.  Wanted to do something different.  I'm such a social person, and so being stuck at home all day, while being behind in school can get depressing; while looking at the public school thinking, "I could be with people.  I could actually finish school.  It wouldn't all be on me."  But these last couple weeks I have hung up around my school desk Bible verses that I see constantly to help me.  It is has worked.  While I still have weak points, I've come to grips with this being were He wants me.
My mom and grandma now have iPhones.  Yup.  I still do not have one.  But that's okay.  My phone isn't that bad.  I may actually be switching numbers, which I am kind of excited about, because I have some people that don't text me anymore/won't answer my texts.  So, I plan on sending out a text to all my numbers saying: Text this new number.  So, that way I get to see how many people still care about having my new number, and those that want to lose contact.  Every once in a while it is okay to just see who is your friend still.  There are a couple people that I am hoping that, even though we haven't texted, that they still want to be my friend. 
That was just a random thing that has nothing to do with any of you, but anyway. =)
Well, I have to go pack and shower for tomorrow.  I am sorry about TT not being up these last two weeks, and about my absence.  I really do feel bad about it, but that you guys for understanding. =)

    3. Haha, you could think of it that way! LOL Well, I'm filling it with sketches and poems of nature, taping leaves and flowers in the pages, and getting dirt on it. =) I wrote a poem about campfires and then picked up and rubbed some ashes on the page to make it more "earthy." =)

    4. That's good! I'm practically all better too! Other than when you wake up in the morning, from laying down all night I can barely breath from stuffiness! I'm sure you know what I mean. ;) Though, I can almost breath fine now just the sniffles here and there. But almost gone!! :) Thank you! ♥ You are so sweet! :)
      In Jesus' name,
