59...12/40

Today consisted of Imma & Ture, bad body double, *elbow budge* "funny story", Grandma Arnette, big MC, red tongues, walking with the ghost, "do you think I can take that?", and "ayo, can you help me get the point?"


in other words going to church, cheesecake factory, & skirball museum with Brianna
lovely day =)

56...9/40

I know that I'm a photographer and all, and I bet you know that too...but it doesn't mean I know EVERYTHING about photography- truth is, I don't know a lot! I bring this up because I have gotten anonymous messages via myspace and flickr mainly with blank profiles (or even people I know in general) asking me like what exactly I do to my photos and whatnot. It's quite annoying because I'm not going to tell you my step by step process, or even my personal tricks. I also get a lot is what kind of camera I use- I get it, everyone wants a nice camera...but find a camera that is fit for you!!!! Just research, find one that you are going to love and want to use...you're going to be using it, not me!I've only had one slr, and it's not even top of the line so I barely know anything about cameras. Also, I don't get why people are always asking where I shoot my photoshoots..seriously I just find places...just by driving around- I don't have a secretive way or anything. Sometimes even friends will stumble upon and cool spot and tell me about it. Just be creative with your own mind, not mine.
I just do what I do, mainly it's from PERSONAL EXPERIENCE...try it <3


ANYWAYSSSSSSSSS




So for all who don't know what this is...it's called a friendship date. In my religion class the guys have a assignment to ask a girl creatively to be his friendship date, and then we just have to do a half hour minimum activity together. I have two friendship dates but I didn't have a photo of the other one. Well this morning, Ricky, the guy in the photo, "dressed up" like Curios George- it was so cute & funny. & there was chocolate on it...haha my favorite!! yum.

54 & 7/40

Last time I checked, I don't remember where...the band Bon Iver said they weren't touring for a while! I just looked and they are touring in OHIO--that is so far!! I told myself I would only go up to 4-5 hours driving to see them...what about five hours flying? I WISH!!!

They are amazing...I still can't believe I was at this concert. I was a lot closer. It was a sunrise concert. Best atmosphere of my life. I miss it. AND YES, he really does sound much better live then on track.

52 & 5/40 of being vegetarian

This morning I spent going to jamba juice & church with Brianna. After dakota & I went to this vegetarian resturant with vegan options! It's called follow your heart on sherman way in between canoga and topanga. It was good! I really want to go back and try something new. The cool part of it, is that it's also a little mini mart too- it reminds me of a Trader Joes. Next door was like a little designer thrift shop where I found the CUTEST true religion brown cords- which were one size TOO SMALL! I was so upset =( they were so cute.



Besides my day...my emotions have been a wreck. I'm happy, sad, confused, jealous, curious and all in all wondering.
I don't know what I want =(

50...3/40 vegetarianism

Today...I felt like I wanted to brighten up 52 lives but I failed. I only really attempted one. I will tell you my sad, rejected story. Joey and I were sitting in McDonalds for our every-once-in-a-while 69cent ice cream cone! yeah...you though I was going to say like a big mac or chicken nuggets---and if you know me I would never...but in fact McDonalds ice cream is one of the healthiest you could ever eat! so I guess everyone once in a while isn't too bad.

anyways...we were sitting in there after finishing up and I just happened to see a worker washing the floors, he was a older hispanic guy. He looked a little sad...and after seeing Valentines Day I really felt today was Vday...and seeing him alone made me want to put a smile on his face- even a smirk would do! So he told us to lift up our feet so he could wash under neath us but not really actually- it was more of a grunt, but I knew what he meant of course! after he did I told him to have a nice day- loudly might I add...a few seconds later I realized he most likely did not understand me. I felt rejected...and a little retarded.

so if you're really this, have a WONDERFUL night. Maybe I'll reach my goal without even knowing it, but most likely not because I know how it is to look at a long LONG paragraph of a blog and be like "forget it I'm NOT reading this" because that is simply how our minds word- we love pictures, quotes, videos but not long paragraphs. So I respect you for even taking the time to get this far into my blog...Love you all.

49 ...2/40 of vegetarianism

I've had many thoughts today. One of them is how amazing dogs can pant...have you ever tried panting? you lose your breathe in like 27 seconds, but they go for hours. Its weird how God designed all creatures so differently..dogs pant to cool down, we sweat, and pics roll around in mudd.

One thing that really trips me up is how all humans have all the same features, nose, eyes, ears, mouth, etc but we all looks so different. God is amazing. Our minds can't even comprehend it, and evolution is BS.

Goodnight :)

48 & day 1/40 of vegetarianism

It's lent, although that a cathlolic tradition, and I am clearly not catholic...I just like the idea of it! So I decided to not eat meat and workout everyday! It's been going good so far :)


I also dropped Algerbra two which is such a RELIEF! Woo.

Today I did not want to go to school sooo bad today & I decided to drop algebra 2, which is a great relief because I feel that senior year is getting harder than it was. Sad, a little less than 4 months to go! So long...


Lent starts tomorrow which means I'm going to be VEGETARIAN, for the first time in my life.

Thank you Joey for a amazing makeup Valentines Day! I love him, he's my best friend :)

I'm finally caught up! Today was packing, breakfast, service, confirming and wanting to get more serious about my faith and finally leaving! I had such a great experience at camp. I came home and relaxed. I am so sore and so tired! My neck especially from probably fall hard when I was snowboarding.

All I gots to say is that Bri was my special pal at pali moutain.
HHAHA I lub her
Here's a few (ghetto phone) photos from camp! I have better ones on my friends cameras, but they haven't uploaded them yet so here's for now






Oh yeah, celebrating Valentines Day tomorrow! Can't wait :)

Saturday was a new experience! I went SNOWBOARDING! I know this may be very common to say, but it was hard & I fell a lot...but I got better the second run I went down. I wish I would have gone more times but I was so exhausted hurting and cold- - - I couldn't! All in all it was fun, but it would have to take a lot of convincing for me to go again!

We had 2 services that day, one was about being a Christian example and the other was "L.I.G.H.T"
L: love people passionately (mark 3:34)...basically love them enough to tell them about Christ
I: Intercede tfor them persistantly
G: Go to them personally...invite them to church with you, don't just say "well maybe if you have time" be aggresive and say "I want you to come to church with me"
H: Help them practically
T: Teach them plainly

He went on to say how we should have a purpose in this life. The one think I really got from the message of "l.i.g.h.t" was what if you were the ONLY one to save someone (in other words, for them to become a christian) and you didn't because you were hesistant or shy? He said we need to be a light under the bushel (matt 5:15)...have you ever noticed in a dark room- pitch black- you can't see a single soul? not even your own hand in front of you? but once, you light a match, shine a light or even use your phone you can see much clearer...that's how God is, he is that light, and we need to be that light to other people. We need to have a purpose, shine our light to other people

I am back from winter camp! But this is supposed to be fridays blog so I'll "re live" it for you....

So friday started out with waking up at Bris house then getting ready to go to Faith Baptist School! We waited, checked in and got ready to go on the bus! When we got to Pali Moutain (the camp site) we put all our stuff in our cabins then went down to the "field" which was covered with so much snow! It was incredible, I haven't ever seen snow, well that I can remember. We through snow balls, sledded and met really cool people.

Around 7-8ish we had service, which is like a chapel that lasted around a hour. This was my favorite lesson of the weekend. I really enjoyed the speaker (Matt Conners) and the message. Basically it was about surrendering to God. I made brief notes, so hopefully I can tell this to your to where you will catch on. We studied the verse Acts Chap 26: 24-28. It's about a man of the name Arigppa, King Agrippa. He knew everything about God and the faith but was just not persuaded to become saved. He believed he could do it on his own...it's crazy because King A is never mentioned again after that and he never was saved.

He tied in "pride" & "pet sins" into the message as well. He talked about pride and how we are given the liberty to do stuff on own and how with pride we do not thank God. Pet sins was another one, these are little thing that we don't want to give up that could be stopping us to surrendering to God...anything from impurity, immorality and even thoughts. As he mentioned "sin is only fun for a season" which is completely true. He gave a really good analogy of a rose. So take a rose, pass it around a room allowing them to touch it, feel it, look at it, smell it, do whatever you would like. It's beautiful, right? But what happens to it once it comes back...is it still beautiful and pure? This is what happens to us when we have our pet sins before God. They make us impure, sinful and to extend of outwardly ugly.

It made me think a little. I really want to change myself...get rid of my pride and pet sins. Steps I can make is surrounding myself amoungst better people. In the bible it says "iron sharpens iron" & it's so true. Take a analogy of a chair, have someone stand on it and the other person on the floor. Is it easier to pull the person to the chair with you or for the person on the floor to pull you down? This is important, and to make friends with the same standards as you- if not higher...it won't bring you down because you have same beliefs and thoughts.

So I really enjoyed the chapel, but that's not all we did! After that we watched a Christian Horror movie, really cheezy but it has a really good story line! Then we had cabin time then we went to bed!

Today was interesting. Who knew there could be so much drama within a yearbook class? It seems like everyone is getting more and more tense towards the end of senior year, I don't like that...I feel like I'm getting less-tense. 4 more months isn't a long time at all. It's bittersweet.

Anyways, I came home to a beautiful sky which made everything better!

I'm tired, cold, & my throat hurts a little bit...


...but I'm happy with my Hamlet essay, the book I'm reading is intriguing & my mom made a really yummy dinner.

37

Went to breakfast with Brianna this morning. Then I hung out with Joey, we went to see "up in the air' and I thought it was a really good movie. I am no movie critic, because every movie I see I tend to really like it even when people don't like it. He surprised with this book I mentioned that I wanted to read a while back called "extremely loud & incredibly close". I can't wait to read it! I'm actually going to start reading it after I post this...Love you joey =)



Oh yeah, wrote a rough draft for my Hamlet essay...not as bad as I thought.

I gave blood today! Yikes. I probably shed a tear when the needle was going in my skin...ugh I don't know why I give blood it's like torture. I did it last year for the first time and I did it again this year and was sooo nervous. I really hate giving blood. I don't think I'll do it again.

My inernet has been really slow but todays chapel was really intense and it moved me for sure...I have many things to think about and reconsider. Other then that, today was one of the funniest day. I have a Alg 2 quiz tomorrow, I think I'll fail...I should just drop the class. Ugh.


song of the day...I didn't watch yet the video but I love her and I bet it's really trippy so here :)
