Promotion and such . . . :)

I have been meaning to post on my blog for a long time but never got around to it because I kept telling myself that I had nothing to post about. I don't have that excuse anymore!

I had promotion a couple weeks ago which means I'm no longer in middle school! The promotion itself was short and simple but it was fun. I said goodbye to everyone. I was sad to leave CGMS because I had so many good times and memories there. It's sad that our whole "group" won't be together anymore because we're going to different schools! :( But I'm way excited for high school! Here's some pictures of promotion.

I got back from Girls' Camp about a week ago. That was a lot of fun. The first day it rained really hard and it was FRRRREEEZING! But we still did everything and had fun despite the cold. I think last year was more spiritual for me, but this year I learned lots! I got to participate in the program this year. I sang a song called "He Is the Way". The program was about the Ten Virgins but based more on modern day things. I had a lot of fun at skit night. The skits are always so funny! I loved it. I had a good time at camp this year!

I went to Utah for about 2 and a half weeks. That was a lot of fun. Katie came with us and we went to Lagoon. It was so good seeing everyone! Except everyone was pregnant! :) I'm really glad we got to go! I would post pictures, but I didn't really take any . . . . :(

Well that's about all that has been going on that I can think of!

. . . . .

I have been really horrible at updating my blog but I don't really have much to talk about . . .

-Last day of school is this Thursday!! I'm pretty excited for the end of middle school. We're having a promotion since we're going into high school and I got a really pretty dress. I love it!

-On Friday we are leaving the state of Arizona for Utah. I'm excited to see all my family. Katie is coming with us so that will be fun :)

That's all I can think of for right now . . . :)

Ahh! AIMS is finally almost over! Only 2 (I think) more days of it left! However, I think the worst has yet to come. The Science . . . . In our science class we haven't really gone over a lot of the stuff so I feel really unprepared for the test. I've been studying a bit but there isn't really anything I can study that will really get me ready for the test. We took a practice test today and it was pretty difficult. But the reading and writing and math are done with. They were all fairly easy and I think I did decent. A couple questions I know I missed after thinking about them some more. . .

Anyways, I'm glad Megan got voted off on American Idol. I think her last performance was horrible.

Spring Break

I can't believe Spring Break is already over! My break was a very nice getaway from school. I went to Flagstaff with Katie and her family. I had a lot of fun with them. We hung out a Barnes and Noble, saw a movie, took 100 {good} pictures, and just hung out. Other than that, I didn't really do much besides relax, read, and play guitar. I can play Realize by Colbie Caillat on the guitar now. I was playing around with the chords all day Saturday and I figured out the strumming on Sunday. I'm so proud of myself! :) And I also can't believe AIMS is next week! GRR! I don't like AIMS, but it will be nice to get it over with.

Real American Idol . . .

So I was pretty wrong about who I thought was going to be voted off, but I think Jasmine deserved to stay . . . she's a lot better than Megan. And I think Jorge should have gotten another chance. He worked really hard. But oh well. There isn't anything I can do about it. :) My favorites are safe, so I'm happy.

American Idol!

Here's my Idol top 13 opinion :)

The Next To Go

I felt really embarrassed for Megan last night. Her "Rockin' Robin" performance was... wow. I think this is her last week. And.... I think Scott could have done better. I was also disappointed with Anoop's performance, but I hope he doesn't get voted off.

My Favorites

I hope either Alexis or Danny wins because I think they are the best. Alexis has a strong voice--the judges mentioned she was like Kelly Clarkson and I completely agree. :)

This weekend I'm going to a race with my daddy! I'm really excited. And I get to miss one whole day of school! :) This one is actually in California this time, not AZ, so that's a change. I hope we do well in this race and I really hope we don't break down. My dad has been working really hard to prep the car and stuff so I hope "Rico" doesn't let us down. I'm planning on taking lots of pictures, so I'll post them when we get back. Wish us luck!

25 Random Things About Me

I got this tag on Facebook, and I posted it on there, but since I have nothing else to write about, I figured I would share it with my blog too. I had to come up with 25 things about me and I actually had fun with this one.

1. I was born on July 5, 1995. The day after Independence Day.
2. I'm one of the only blondes in my school. But, I love being blonde! :)
3. My latest obsession is Facebook.
4. I love the band Boys Like Girls.
5. My biggest pet peeve is when my brother Connor uses my shampoo and conditioner.
6. I like writing poetry to express my feelings.
7. I LOVE buying/being given shoes--especially heels.
8. I hate it when people spell wrong or don't make sense in texts. It drives me CRAZY! I'm such a nerd. . . I punctuate my texts! :)
9. I got 1st place in the school spelling bee this year. The winning word was enamel. So difficult, huh? :)
10. I hate being crowded. Especially in my room. I also don't like clutters of junk . . . maybe that's why I don't ever use my desk.
11. I always have my fan on in my room. Even if I'm cold. I have to have it blowing on me when I'm in bed or else I can't fall asleep.
12. I love singing trills. (That's where one word has a bunch of notes that go all over the place!) I just think they sound way cool if you can hit all the notes right.
13. I like guys that can make me laugh.
14. I want to be an Elementary School teacher when I grow up. I love kids and I love teaching.
15. I like writing research papers . . . I'm not sure why I like it so much but I guess I'm just a nerd like that. :)
16. I hate it when people criticize something I'm doing or something I've done--especially when they try to be polite about it. I also don't like it when people lie to me . . . So I guess those two kind of coincide. . .
17. I'm left handed.
18. My favorite colors to wear are lavender {purple} and yellow (not together though).
19. I think I'm easy to be friends with. I listen more than I talk but I say what I need to say when it needs to be said.
20. If I don't have anything to say, I won't say anything or try to make a conversation. I think that's why I seem quiet a lot of times.
21. I get hyper off of Jolly Ranchers! (KATIE!! haha:) )
22. I don't normally have a lot of best friends but the ones I do have, I'm best friends with for a while.
23. I hate taking color pictures of myself. Generally, if they aren't black & white or sepia, I won't like them.
24. I'm semi-lactose intolerant. Milk gives me huge stomach aches but I love milk so I usually always have a stomach ache. My fault, I guess.
25. I'm not one to argue and I don't argue well. Usually in a fight, I'm the one apologizing first just so the fight will be over. But I can admit when I'm wrong and when I need to change something.

I also felt an urge to post about my top 10 favorite songs. :) Maybe now I can actually figure out my top 10 . . . there's so many good songs! It's hard to narrow it down. Just for the record, these aren't in order. . .

10. Hero/Heroine by Boys Like Girls
9. Thunder by Boys Like Girls
8. La La Land by Demi Lovato
7. I'm Yours by Jason Mraz (this will always be my song :) )
6. You Can by David Archuleta
5. Misery Business by Paramore
4. The Reason by Hoobastank
3. Between the Lines by Sara Bareilles
2. Fall For You by Secondhand Serenade
1. What's Left of Me by Nick Lachey

Oh, and I saw the Confessions of a Shopaholic movie tonight with Katie. It was really good and really funny! It made me want to go shopping and spend the $1 I had . . . :)

Update. . .?

It's been a while since I've posted--but that's mainly because nothing exciting has been going on lately. . . . I got 1st place in the school spelling bee a couple weeks ago and the district spelling bee is on Tuesday. My words weren't very hard, which is very good! :)

I'm giving a talk in Sacrament tomorrow about "obedience" so I getting information for my talk and writing my talk was basically all I did today.

Facebook is awesome! Lately I've been having major deja vu and flashbacks and stuff because I've found a bunch of people I know from Utah on Facebook. It has been fun seeing what they look like now and getting to know them again. I actually found someone that was in my first grade class and he's my friend on Facebook now! Technology is AMAZING! :)


Oh and I'm not very happy because I procrastinated putting money on my phone so now it's in the negatives and I can't put money on it until Monday. So I can't text or call until Monday. I'm going to be verrrrry bored.

Morgan's baptism was really cool! It was fun to see family that we haven't seen for a while. I had fun spending time with my aunts and uncles and cousins. Morgan is now an official member of the church! She was excited about that. :) Not much else is going on . . . :(

New Year's??

So, this Wednesday there is a New Year's Eve Dance for church. I was so excited about going because I love the dances. But everyone is saying different ages that are allowed to go! Like 1st ward is 100% positive that it's ages 12 and up, but people in my ward aren't exactly sure but they say it's 14 and up. I'm 13, so I wouldn't get to go if it's 14 and up. I really really want to go! I'm going to ask my Bishop to double check. . . . But if I don't go to the dance, the Hillman's in our ward have invited our family to a New Year's Eve party that they're having. So anyways, in Young Women's we talked about our New Year's Resolutions. The General YM/YW Presidency said to include resolutions from 5 different categories (mental, physical, emotional, social, spiritual). Here are some of mine:

-To work harder in Algebra so I can get an A next semester/quarter.
-Keep up good grades in my new High School that I'm going to.

-Try to take my vitamins every day even though they mess "things" up.

-Not complain so much in school/home.
-Be happier by smiling more often.
-Speak my mind more if something is bothering me . . .

-Uhh . . . not be so quiet all the time. :)

-Finish the Book of Mormon again.
-Do better in my church "calling" (Beehives . . . ).

So, I hope you guys have a wonderful New Year's celebration. HAPPY {ALMOST} 2009!!
