Day 31 - Anticipation.

There is absolutely nothing more annoying then sitting by a fire at 9 at night waiting for your school to be called off the night before what is being called a blizzard.

Day 28 - Stuck

Am I the only one who feels that every breath I take that I am happy, is a miracle?
These days a smile can feel so close to a blessing, I often wonder if it truly is.

I feel stuck. The past keeps holding me back. I need to let go of it all, but for some reason I can't seem to figure out how. The past 6 years have formed me into the person that I am today.

Looking back, I think that who I was when I was 12 would be proud of the person that that I have become, by far not proud of all of the decisions I have made, but proud of the over all person.

I can't quite seem to figure out how to take the leap from child to adult but it is something that I only have awhile to figure out. Come graduation (107 days!) my life will drastically change.

Now, to enjoy those 107...

Day 27 - Sushi

It was a first and quite possibly a last. I had never tried sushi so I took a chance and while it is not the worst thing in the world, it will never be something I actually want to eat.

Day 25 - Necessities

I've learned that the only way to make it through this semester without letting senioritis get the best of me is colorful pens. Lot's of colorful pens.

Day 23 - Upside Down

It was just one of those days when nothing at all made sense. Discombobulated doesn't even begin to explain my mood.

Day 22 - Crayons

Today I got bored, so I made some crayons to see if it could be a possible babysitting activity in the future. These seem more fun then just your ordinary crayons and the clean up was amazingly easy. It has potential.

Excuse the pic quality, my phone was the only camera option I had at that moment.

Day 21 - Lonely

Alternate Title: The day that I couldn't convince myself to use any other picture even thought this picture is several months old, not taken today.

I never thought I'd miss her so much. It's been over a month since I've seen my Rozzie. I must admit it's weird not chasing her down and listening to that sweet little laugh. I miss her hugs and her little kisses.
I miss her crazy personality that was uniquely her own.
I miss her tiny hands holding on to my arm.
I miss her hair and how crazy it would be after a nap.
I miss rocking her to sleep.
I miss that little girl.

I love you Rozzie! I hope you're having fun in Salina. Emmie misses you!

So as to why Harold is named Harold is a very long story but this stuffed puppy is very good listener during the conversations that you need to have but know that no one else will understand.

Day 12 - Strep

Day 1 - Starting

I've always drawn in by photo journals. Getting a small glance of each day of another humans life has always interested me. My life seems boring to me while other's are fascinating so today is the day that I start my 365 journal so that I can document that fascinating aspects of my every day life that I always seem to miss.

Enjoy, this shall be an interesting year.

It started with a book.
