Goodybe, July

Thought I'd better write again before July was out. It is the last day of this fine month, you know.
I don't think I can coordinate my thoughts this morning, so a random smorgasbord of bullets is the order of the day.

  • I'm currently eating cheese toast with tomatoes on it, courtesy of my friend Rebecca. She brought me a lovely block of Muenster from Wisconsin last week.
  • July has been a month of craziness.
  • I made a successfully cute skirt a couple weeks ago.
  • I need to go fix a seam in aforementioned skirt when I get off the computer.
  • Yesterday I went to Six Flags again with some of my awesome friends.
  • I have been so busy doing things with my friends this month that I am exhausted.
  • Also, I have a cold.
  • Wednesday was bad. It was very depressing. Erin gave me a string of yellow beads and that helped.
  • My world is spinning around me like mad, but God's got it under control so there's no point in me freaking out about it.
  • People are disappointing.
  • God is faithful.
  • People are also amazing.
  • Thursday night I stayed up and colored a unicorn with my crayons. I think people should use crayons way more often.
  • Sometimes I wonder if it will ever end, but I don't really know what "it" is. I have a feeling it's not going to, though.
  • There is a fly that keeps buzzing around my head and it's driving me INSANE.
  • I've been too busy for the past week and a half to journal, which is really sad because I've been busy doing stuff that begs to be written about.
  • I've written more in my journal this past month than any other month in my life because I'm determined to remember. Recently I realized that I can't remember huge chunks of my life and it makes me sad. No, I mean seriously sad. Like I've lost part of my life, as if I had amnesia or something.
  • God is amazing. I know I sound redundant, but when life goes crazy and you're forced to just spend time sitting alone in God's presence so you don't go crazy with it, that's when His beauty becomes so real.
  • Sleepovers, a birthday party, a prayer retreat, a visit with old friends, six flags, VBS, are just a few of the things that have occupied my time and energy this month. And, may I say, they were all fantastically fun.
  • As I'm writing, I'm listening to this video: Aaand you should listen to it too because that's my friend Janson and he's entered the Opening Act competition for a chance to open at Celebrate Freedom concert this year. Go watch it. It counts as a vote for him. :) Even if you don't care about the contest, I recommend checking it out anyways because it's a fantastic song.
  • I could use some ice cream right now.
  • Yesterday at six flags I was wishing I had put sunscreen on the back of my neck, but it was too late... then we noticed someone had left some spray-on SPF 50 sitting on a bench... thank you, random person, for forgetting your sunscreen. My neck is grateful. =)
  • Bekka and I convinced Rebecca to get a spur-of the moment haircut while she was in town since she hated her hair. She loves it now. You're welcome, Bex. lol
  • On the way back from the retreat, I spent hours talking in a British accent. During which time span this picture was taken. Starbucks' shaken iced tea/lemonade is delicious. Hat shops are less boring when silly boys and silly accents are involved.
  • Egyptian bellydancing belts... haha. And it's ok if that didn't make sense to you. It won't make sense to most of you, but I felt like it had to be there.
  • I kept up the accent until it was scared right out of me when I had to run across 4 lanes of scary traffic. O.o It didn't come back after that.
  • If there's a cup over the ketchup pump at Zaxby's that means you probably don't want to consume that particular ketchup. Experience is a fantastic teacher.
  • Looking at that pic reminds me I really need to work on my gangsta face.
  • I won a game of Scrabble last night. Both the other girls I played with claimed to be champs. in yo face!
  • I feel kinda bad this post is so disorderly, but I seriously am unable to write about everything in an orderly fashion right now, so it was this or nothin'.
  • I never eat ice and yesterday my fingertips got all wrinkly from eating all the ice chips out of my cup at Applebee's.
  • Um... I think I'm done for now. Happy weekend, people. <3

    -I love your attitude. Your faith seems so strong, even when you are let down by whatever people or situations you come across. It's so inspiring.
