What Am I Doing?

Right now I am...
Petting Sheila
Wishing I had cookies
Considering a giveaway
Sitting across from my sister Callie making weird faces at her
Thinking about how I want to respond to an email
Finished playing Wii Fit for now
Browsing through old photos
Typing this post to you
Thinking about when I should call him
Wanting to jump on the trampoline
Listening to "Come What May" (again! haha)
Remembering our puppy Ranger has big paws
Wondering if I should finish my World History outline?
Gazing out the window
Rambling and...
Smiling :)

Sister, Sister

I hope you all had a fantastic week! Thank goodness, gracious, goshness that it's Friday.
I know you are all pretty much already in cahoots with my sister Callie whose blog is known as, the Magical Bean...
My other sister Kaitlyn just got one as well! I mean how amazing is that!! Kaitlyn is extremely cool and I think you'll love her... be sure to stop by her blog and have a looksie!
Here's some photos of our sisterly love..haha. :)

(Kaitlyn, Callie, and Me! If I remember right this was taken in Den Haag.)

So I might as well tell you about my day today...
Today I took a break from schoolio.
Hey everybody needs a day off!
I hung out with my sisters whilst my brother was off at school.
Then we went to a forest/park near our house to go running
and let me just tell you...

it was FREEZING!

(here's a photo taken on one our runs of a pretty muscley runner...hehe)

We ended up getting back into the car, going home,
changing into pants, and then running by our house.
It was a pretty good run, I'm a little tired now
because I just got back,
but hopefully the rest of the day will be eventful.

*Fingers crossed*

Have a great Friday...the weekend's almost here.

Are you ready for this?

Inspirations of the Moment...

Such as...

I don't know if you guys have ever seen MTV's new show My Life as Liv...but I think I'm in love! I mean I'm not a big fan of MTV's usual shows, I personally wish they would go back to music videos... but whatever. I mean have you even attempted to watch Jersey Shore? Holy cow. That show is a disgrace to Americans...
But anyways this girl is so REAL! She's hilarious and doesn't care what people think of her. She's such an inspiration, I want to be more rebellious.
I'm thinking of painting my nails black! Ooh.. I'm a rebel! haha.
But in all seriousness, I do attend a high school in Texas and there are some girls that are as terrible as the "villians" of the reality show.
But not quite as many, I guess it's because I'm farther up north.
But the point of all rambling is to say...
if you haven't seen it yet go and watch it RIGHT NOW!
haha. not right now, but when you have time of course. :)

Then there's this song:

Holy guac, amazing song eh?

What's a Girl to Do?

As I scroll from place to place, constantly clicking, I realize the reason I began this blog. Yes at first it was out of boredom but also it's because I want to be a writer. Er... at least I think I do. That's the problem.. I have no idea what I want to do with my future. Where do I want to go to college? What do I want to major in? Minor in? I have no idea.

I have interests of course but I can't see myself sticking to one final thing. Have you ever seen the movie Monster-In-Law? You know the one with Jennifer Lopez? LOVE that movie!! But anyways, she seemed to be doing okay as a temp. She never really settled on one thing and now I wonder is that my destiny? Will I be okay if I don't have one set job but rather many ones? Who knows... anyways here are some of my ideas for the future (I love making lists! I wonder if that could qualify as a job: official list maker extraordinaire! Hey it could work...haha)

1. a chef/baker- I love to cook

2. an environmentalist or some kind of humanitarian

3. a Journalist

4. a translator especially for the French language

5. become apart of the video making world

6. an inventor

7. a high school French teacher

8. a cat lady!! oh wait...I don't believe that's an occupation.. CURSES!

9. yeah that's all I got forget # 9

So yeah I have absolutely no idea what to do but I'm considering my options... and trying to find a solution. There's got to be one out there---I just haven't found it yet, or rather it hasn't found me yet--- :)

A Little Doodle or Two...

My sister Callie makes the cutest little doodles! Many times when we're sitting at the computer we'll pass little post-it note doodles back and forth. As result I have many cute ones from her! Usually mine aren't quite as impressive..heehee.

But these are some of my favorite ones from her:

Pretty impressive, eh?
