2 Year Blog Anniversary!

 Well, you know you are got problems when you didn't even think for a second about your blog's anniversary until you look up the date to write at the top of science notes.  It took me a couple seconds to remember why October 22nd stood out to me for some reason.

Last year I made a big deal about my anniversary, this year I almost missed it.  It's called natural balance. 

Well, my second post was random facts about myself, so I decided to see how much I've changed in 2 years.   On my original post I posted a ton of commentary, as all 14 year old girls do, but I'll just put the actual facts here.  If you dare to go that far back to the archive, have fun.

 1. I am a writer.  Still true, but not to the extent I was at this time.  I did much more long stories than poems then, and now I'm almost entirely poetry.

 2. I love the color pink.  Still true; although my blog name doesn't reflect it anymore.  Pastel pink and rich reds are my colors right now.

3. My favorite domestic animals are dogs, rabbits, and goats.  My favorite wild animals are lions, eagles, and giraffes.  The domestic animals are still the same; I only own a dog now, though, rather than all three.  I still love lions and giraffes, but I have no idea where eagles came from.  I don't remember ever liking those especially...weird. 

4.  I am running out of facts.  Smooth... You couldn't just think for a minute, huh? XD

5.  I am homeschooled.  Still true, but I've moved from just starting 9th to working on 11th.  Super scary...

6.  I have many best friends.  Still true, but my friends have become more solid.  Sometimes people let you go, sometimes you drift away.  I'm still super thankful for the friends I have; including the one(s) that I didn't have at the start of my blog!

7.  I hate licorice.  Still true; although I haven't tried it in forever; so this might have changed.

8.   I love, love, LOVE York Peppermint candies, 3 Musketeers candy bars, and Crunch candy bars, Skittles and Starburst.  I still like the first three; I'm more of a chocolate girl than a candy girl now.  Except for now I'm a  refined-sugar-proccessed-food-gluten-free-girl, so adios to all of that.

9.  I like swimming, but unless in extreme situations, I can't go under water without a swim mask on.  Unfortunately, still true.  I can swim; but I still can't go underwater confidently.  But I'm okay with that, and I'm not around water a lot anyway.  If I need to learn, I will. 

10.  I like every season, in it's own right.   Yes, but I have decided that I don't care for winter; and I do have a favorite now: fall.

11.  My favorite holiday is Christmas.  True again.  I can't wait to start decorating!
12.  I have straight, blond hair. 
That refuses to be anything else.  At the original writing I was just starting to grow out side bangs, but I haven't had bangs now for probably over a year.

13.  I love Subway, Golden Corral, and Chipotle Grill!!!!  Okay, not Golden Corral.  That place is disgusting.  Subway; eh,eh.  I don't dislike it, but it wouldn't be a favorite.  Chipotle Grill, however, still my favorite.  My three now would be Chipotle, Jason's Deli, and Olive Garden.

14.  Whenever my grandparents come to our house (a couple times a year) we eat strawberry shortcake, and watch The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again.  (It has Tim Conway and Don Knotts in it, and it is SO funny!  I have watched it so many times I could probably dictate it, but I still love the family times we have!  =) )  We still do this.  Same movie, same dessert.  =)

15.  For now, I have run out of facts.  And that is were my 14 year old brain stopped.  It's actually pretty surprising how little, and how much I've changed.  A lot of these things are the same; but I've had a lot of experiences that have changed me.  I definitely not the same person I was two years ago.  And that is a really good thing.

Well, there you have it.  Sorry once again for my fickle posting schedule; things are crazy but I plan on getting some posts up soon!

Happy October 22nd!
