Happy New Year!!! Isn't it odd that it's 2010 already?!!?!??!?! I won't be alive next time there is a single digit in the year..... :( Like when it's 2101, or 3001! But then I have to realize that it's only the dating system we have! I have exams and big papers due soon, but the best part of it all, is that I'm going to Florida, land of the sun, alligators, and tourists! :) I'll still be able to post things and all, so you can all share in my panicky moments on a boat, my getting exercise by running up and down on the condo stairs, and my hope to see a dolphin! : ) Where is the farthest you've traveled?
A few days ago I went with my Youth Group to a place called Lincoln Cavern in PA. It was a little disconcerting knowing that I was going hundreds of feet down into the earth where there IS NO AIR!!!! I'm such a great person to take underground...... Not. I don't think I really panicked outwardly, other than setting my face like I'm walking to my doom. No, actually at first, I was pretty scared, but then as we got deeper, I got used to the cool air, which I LOVE!! And I saw 2 cute little bats! A couple days ago I went to an amusement park named 'Knoebels'. It was big!!! It was a family friendly park. My friend's B-Day party was held there, and I even surprised myself and got on a flume! And, yes, I do ride things that are fast. ( Like my mom's driving on back roads).But I kinda prefer things a little closer to the ground! Like little kiddie rides. Just kidding!! Anyway, the flume dropped straight down into a pool of water. I asked my friend if she could scream with me, and she happily agreed. It was embarrassing though, when I realized that 5 year old boys were happily grinning when they dropped down. But my excuse is that I am a delicate female..... ; ) (R-i-g-h-t...) I'm not usually a screamer. I usually either have a face like a stone (as in, I'm not ready to die!!!), or I do a little shriek. But that day, I wanted to break my silent record. And break it I did!!! All day I had trouble talking because of my hoarse throat. But it was fun! And my friend really helped me! I mean, a friend is someone willing to scream WITH you. If you ever go to 'Knoebels', you should get their cheese fries. Oh, sooooo good!!!!! So, other than that, my life is pretty normal. Well, as normal as it can get with school (shudders). I REFUSE to submit to its harness! I will persevere!!! ; )
~Signing Off, Katie (Oh, I love doing that!)
Wow, I haven't been on in awhile! I've been really busy with starting school. I have some subjects that are taught by my mom, and then I have 2 online classes. Those two just started this week. I like them a lot! My teachers are really good so far. I was so afraid that Composition would be extremely hard, but it wasn't! Of course, it was challenging... My history class is doing well too. I'm reading Eusebius: the Church History. (Insert scary music here...) Just kidding! I also spent the last 2 weekends having sleepovers, because they're our last summer sleepovers. My family is getting a new laptop, and because we got a deal, we got a free Ipod Touch! YAY!!!!!!! So, of course, my mom is taking my used nano. But first I have to teach her how to use it, which will take forever. I don't really know what to write about, so I'll take suggestions if you have any!!! : )
Oh! I almost forgot! I just finished watching all three Lord of the Rings movies! I read the books a couple years ago, but I didn't really understand the books. I really enjoy watching the orcs die, not to sound weird or anything. But, just so you know, I have trouble watching movies where PEOPLE die. My logic is that people have souls, and orcs do not. Seriously, I freak out over a dead body with no blood in the dark, in a murder mystery. So I'm not completely crazy. Just FYI.
