Oh my goodness. PEOPLE. 



The thing is, we're having tons of people staying over at our house for the next couple days. And when I say tons, I mean, tons. Not only coming over, but sleeping over. And I'm not sure if I'm supposed even stay in my room. MY OWN ROOM. Either that or, I share. But c'mon. Who shares beds these days. Who even shares at all these days. Like seriously. 

If you haven't noticed yet, I have problems with hospitality. I mean, sure! come over and let's drink tea and stay up till 3 in the morning and have ocean deep conversations. Let's! But DO NOT make me share my bed or, even worse, move me from my own room. It's actually called 'my room' for a purpose you know. 
But, on the bright side, we're actually having people over. Should be fun, ya'know? Ohh.. I didn't even mention why we're having people over. That's because there's going to be this congress of like so many churches combined and they're all coming here, to my home state. Yup. This is where the congress will take place. Annnd, I might actually even go to the congress because of my two amazing brothers. At first I thought I won't since there might not be enough room, but I asked my brother today and he said (whispered), "YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS." So I guess that's a yes?! I mean, I'll take that!

But I'm so nervous!!! I might have to talk to people and I not very good at that stuff!! Especially the guys. OH. MY. GOODNESS. The GUYS. 
I'm more of the you-talk-to-me-I-might-talk-to-you type of gal. Seriously. I won't chatter my head off unless I'm like SUPER comfortable with you or I have no choice but to talk to you. Yeah. 

Them nerves.


Day 6:
What's something you would change about yourself?

A LOT of stuff.

But most importantly, all lot of my bad habits that I've formed and that have grown quite some roots over the years. Yeah, those. I wish that I would've been very careful watching my actions and thoughts. I know that there still is a way to dig them out and I'm still trying, but now that will take so much more work than it could have. 

I know that I'm not quite answering the questions directly; I have to say that I try. I do. It's just that when I'm thinking about how and what to answer, the answers just slip out of my mind. When I see the question for the day, I'm like, "Pshh, easy as PIE." But then I start trying to answer. Yeah, right, easy as PIE.  

Yeah right. 

QOTD: what's your favorite color?
AOTD: mine's green, as of right now. all shades of green.  

By the way, do ya'll want any OOTD of the outfits I'll wear for the three day congress?

I love Sundays. I can go to church, fill my head and heart with the Word of God to think over the week.

Our church is very small, about around 60 people, but I love it very much. That's the good thing about a small church. You get to know everybody. And you get to know them know than just a-face-you-see-every-Sunday.

Well, I've seen some OOTD's (outfit of the day) around other blogs and decided to try it. I'm not a big fan of taking pictures of myself or having others do it - because I only have brothers or my parents to do it and, believe me, that gets awkward - so I just took a picture of the clothes. I'm also not a huge fashion enthusiast, well maybe, but I like dressing up every once in a while so I hope you enjoy this:)


shirt - Sear's 
skirt - Target
knit cardigan - garage sale
watch - birthday present

The best thing about this whole outfit is the fact that none of these items cost a lot. Basically, nothing in my closet costs too much of a pretty penny. I've had a couple but they were either totally worth it or very much regretted.
The pencil skirt is probably one of my favorite buys as I've been looking for one that's modest and at the same time pretty cute; it was only around $7!!
The price for the shirt was $7 as well. Pricey, but it's just too cute.
My mother bought the cardigan at a garage sale for about $.25 or $.75. This is exactly why I love garage sales :)
The watch I got from my brother on my birthday - like two years ago? It's very slender and chic and I wear it whenever I go out.

If you like this OOTD post, please let me know so I can do more:)


Day 5:
Something you would change about the world?

A million things and probably everything. But, honestly, I don't care. I just really really want the Lord to come faster and take us all home. I'm tired living in a world full of sin and grief.

That is that.

Hey guys! It's officially (in my world) SPRING! How fantastic is that? I am definitely ready for some warmer weather and thunderstorms and clean fresh air. Hope it stays this way for a looong time. 

I love how we have all these different fruit trees in our backyard. It makes spring time so special with all these different blossoms blooming at different times. We have apple trees, and pear trees, and cherry trees, and an apricot tree. Though I'm pretty sure I left something out. *cheesy grin*
Oh yeah, was it the banana tree? But it doesn't blossom. At least not yet. And probably not any time soon.

Our apricot blossoms..

Apple trees starting to bloom.

Apricot blossoms blooming.


Day 4:
How do you think you're life would change if you achieved your dream? 

Taking in consideration that my dream right now is to get my life in as much order as I can, I'd say my life would change pretty nicely. Imagine, schoolwork always on time, piano practices every day, and knowledge expanding. Basically an almost perfect life. And no, I do not wish for a perfect life. I wish for a fulfilling life. A fulfilling life for my Savior. 

Better go work on that, huh?

QOTD (question of the day): What is the best compliment you have ever received?

My brother (I'll call him P so not to mix you all up with the other five I have) and I went on a forest adventure yesterday. The word adventure might be slightly exaggerating; it was mostly all about taking pictures in a forest environment. But the butterfly feeling of an adventure was still there in my stomach. 
P used to be a photographer by profession. Now, it's a hobby whenever there's time, I guess. But it's a total inspiration being there with him and hearing him describe how to look for something fascinating in a seemingly boring place. Photography is truly such a beautiful thing to ever happen. And anyone can use it and do it. The forest might seem nothing special; the same silvery brown bland hues everywhere with a few little green plants peeking out every now and then to give at least a slight pop of color. But here's where you and the camera come in.
You are the main and most important factor here. It's all about how you see your surrounding. And the camera helps you accomplish that. It's a tool you use to give more detail to what you see and how you see it and what you want to focus on. I honestly have no words right now as how to describe photography. Maybe one day, when I'll finally understand the world, I'll tell you how it's done.
Now, the adventurous side. The forest was pretty scary. I now can honestly say that I do understand how people get lost in forest. Like seriously 100% understand. The fact that everything, everything, is the same color, I think that alone is enough for you to go berserk! After a while, it seems as if all the trees are the same and everything is the same and how do you get out of here?!? Seriously.
The other creepy thing was that after a little way into the forest, we happened upon a mattress. An old, mossy, little mattress. How. Disturbing. Is. That?!?! Farther in, there were more old, rotten, dirty and mossy and completely decayed wooden and wired bed stuff. The whole scene was pretty intensely eerie. But pretty fun nonetheless.

Day 3:
What do you think is your reason for being here?

This was and is a pretty difficult question to answer. From a worldly point of view, I'd maybe say something similar to being here for my family, accomplishing something in this world whether for humanity or myself, or maybe just surviving. But I clearly disagree with that. I truly think there's something more to me and everyone else being here. I decided to ask my father.
My father is a big role model for me, both in his actions and words. He is someone I greatly admire especially in his spiritual knowledge. When I came up to him with this question, I wasn't exactly sure how to put it in such a way that I could explain what exactly I was looking for in an answer. But I think I got what I came for.
God created us. He created us so He can love us and we can love Him in return. I asked, "Why? What's the point in that if people still reject Him?" Well, what's the point in having children, then? Why does a mother want a child so? To want to love and cherish and to be loved and cherished in return. It seems so complicated but so simple. And now, at least I, understand my reason for being here.

(I really need to learn how to write better, don't I?)

A little episode of our lives came to a closure.
Today my brother and I had probably our last IHOP breakfast. Remembering it makes me so sad. We made friends with the waiters and almost never had to look into the menu. We always ordered extra extra extra whipped cream, and they always made sure we had extra extra extra whipped cream. They asked us little questions about our lives and we, in turn, asked about theirs. I wonder what they will think happened to us if we don't come anymore. For the possibilities are endless of what could have happened to us. Or will they forget about us?  
I genuinely hope they have the best in their lives.
"There's always a reason for meeting the people we met." 
Day 2:
Something illegal that you consider should be legal.
The right to own chickens and such on your property without having to ask the consent of your city. Like come' on. We had chickens once but were ordered by the city to remove them. Well, I think that was more because of a neighbor's complaint (the chickens didn't even make that much noise). But still our city won't let you own chickens unless you have so much land. I get upset just by remembering about all this. The chickens were the cutest things ever!

365 Day Blog Challenge // Day 1

Hey guys!
Good news! Not sure if it's better for you or me, but, hear me out. I have decided to do a 365 day blog challenge. Which is basically a list of questions you answer and post on the blog for every day of the year. Or, at least, for 365 days. Ta-DA! Isn't this pretty cool?! I know, I know. I am actually pretty thrilled to do this. I'm pretty positive that I won't be posting exactly every day but this is still something, right? Right. So, starting today, this experiment-slash-adventure thing is starting!!
Day 1: 
Hopes, dreams, and plans for the next 365 days (with a picture of yourself)?

Ugh. This is hard.

I have a lot of hopes for the next 365 days. Some are very important; others it seems not so much. But then I guess they all are since they're my hopes. Well, first of all, I hope to do very well on a placement test for college as well as the ACT (which I might be doing this June. eep!) Also, I hope to improve myself on the piano. Overall, I hope to improve myself, as an individual, to be more confident and happy and outgoing with new people. I want to work on my personality.

My dreams are actually quite similar to my hopes. It's like my hopes and sleep got married and had dreams as children. :) Anyway, my dreams include playing the piano more at church, be a really great photographer, and.... yeah. There's a lot more, I promise. It's just that I can't really think of more at this moment.

Some plans for the next 365 days include the following: become thinner and tone my body, get into college, do a lot of fun stuff with the kids (nephews and nieces) for summer, enjoy every day to the fullest, start running.

This is pretty much all I can think of at the moment.

Pretty lame, huh? But I promise you this, I'm working on it. Lameness, that is.
