I was 7 years old once.

I’m pretty sure I wasn’t 7 here, but I didn’t feel like scanning more pictures.

 

Today I was going through my closet and found my journal. I had this short-lived “journaling or having a diary is so cool” stage. I think I wrote in it 15 times in my life.

I wrote strange little things like,

“My favoritE food is chockolote.”   The ‘E’ on favorite was scribbled in later.

“School is peachey.”    I don’t think I knew what “peachey” meant.

“My brother is sassy.”

“My cat is Sally she likes peaple.”

“Once I went to kingsdemen it was swell as can be.”      I meant Kings Dominion.

“My brother smells like a turkey. hehheheeeheh.”   I guess I thought I was funny. I want to know when I smelled a turkey.

“I have a sister she looks like me but we arent twins at all.”

 

And my absolute favorite, I actually laughed out loud at this one:

“I do not understand the world. I do not understand my life.”

I’m a horrible blogger.

 

It has been 25 days since I last blogged. I know, it’s bad. I am sure that you all have been laying on the floor and wailing like whales because you can’t read the random things I post. That or you hadn’t really noticed I had been slacking….that is probably more likely.

I am going to blame the fact that I haven’t blogged on the fact that my camera’s shutter button broke. My poor little camera is now at the camera doctor though, so don’t worry, he’ll be okay.

 

Anyways, lately, I’ve been feeling like a craftanista (I just made that word up, like right off the top of my head) so I went and ripped apart a few old/ugly shirts that I never wear and made:

Nice hair in this one, I know.

IMG_0075

This one is my favorite.

 

IMG_0090

I don’t know if I like this thing or not, It’s like a scarf/necklace thing..made out of strips of fabric…I don’t know….

 

ANYWAYS! I made a bunch more but you are probably tired of looking at pictures of headbands, of course if you did get tired of it you might not even be reading this because you quit reading before you got here. hmm.

 

And now, for the girl scout pledge (modified): On my honor, I will try to serve God and my country, to help people at all times, and to blog more often...

Day 8 of 30 days of photos.

 

I’m sort of failing at doing this whole 30 days of photos thing.

Yeah.

Anyways, Day 8 was a bad habit.

The cracking of the knuckles. Here’s my shout out to the brother for cracking his knuckles for the camera.
