Wow. Life Is Moving So Fast, Somebody Get Me Off This Thing.

Hey! So much has been going on lately! I've been super busy with the end of the school year and all. Next Wednesday is our last day, but it's not even a full day because we have Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday to complete our final projects and the moment we finish them we get to leave.
I'm super sad about leaving because I've been at the same school my whole life (preschool-8th grade), 11 years. I'm going to miss everybody who's going to different high school's as well! I don't have any really close friends going to a different place, but it'll be different without certain people.
Plus next year we are merging with another school too. That's how it's always been, but I don't know anyone really from the other school and I'm far from popular. I'm just afraid of being judged before people get to know me! Even at my current school people don't know me. They just don't ever take the time to talk with me and I'm not really the person to butt right into their lives and talk to them :P

Timberwolf Camp!
I'm hoping that I'll find more friends at the new school and that people will be kind, caring, and considerate. Honesty, people alway assume Christian schools are all goody-goody, but they're not at all. We have quite a few kids who swear and do various other things, and I've heard that the class we're merging with is even worse. I'm hoping that that's not completely true because I don't want to get involved with that. When I rode the bus to my school this year, I heard quite a few things about certain people in my grade that I didn't need or want to know. I'M SO SCARED!

Anyway, just yesterday we went to our last camp at a YoungLife camp called Timberwolf. IT WAS SO SWEET! There was so much to do there, but sadly not everything was open because it was raining
all morning :/
Mess hall
So the first thing I did when I got there was look around and it was so nice! Then I waited for about two hours or so in the rain to ride on a big ripcord/swing thing which was super scary but fun. It was a lot higher up than I expected and the anticipation while they are "winding you up" is horrible. Christine was the one to pull the cord and I wasn't really expecting her to pull it right then but it felt so weird when you drop! Then it basically goes backwards and forwards like a swing but even huger! It was fun, but probably not something I'd do again.
Then we had lunch which was burgers and after lunch I paddle-boarded for the first time ever for like an hour and a half with Seana. It was really fun and hilarious cause Sea fell off ;P
This is where karaoke was :)
After that, Seana and Christine went on the swing again and I went to change into different clothes. Then I met up with Christine and we sat on the porch of a cabin and talked for a while (we were gonna sit on the hammocks, but they were soaked!). Christiiiii went to go on the swing again with a few other people and I challenged Seana to a game of pool which she played for the first time ever! She won both times but that was only because I hit the 8 ball in the wrong pockets at the end! Then I whopped her at air hockey 6-2 :D When Christine came back we played foosball and I won that as well :P
After a while it was time to eat supper which was pasta and it was pretty good but I wasn't very hungry.
 FINALLY IT WAS TIME FOR KARAOKE! That was so much fun and Christine and I jumped up to sing "A Whole New World" from Disney's Aladdin. I started singing the first verse and I was the only one singing for the longest time so I elbowed Chrisi and she started singing on the chorus. But she accidentally started singing an off-tune harmony xD Then like five other people came up to sing and sorta wrecked it because, well yeah, they're not the best at singing and they were all singing the parts (guy/girl)  that we were already singing.... It was a fail, but still very fun!
Seriously though, there was so much to do there! They had all kinds of water activities: zip-line, rope-swing, kayaks, paddle-boards, blob, swimming, and tubing.
That little stream ran all over and had little bridges
to cross it :) It was adorable!
Then they had all kinds of outdoor activities too: soccer, basketball, baseball, beach volleyball, frisbee golf, go-karts, ripcord, trails, and hammocks.
Also they had indoor activities too: game room (pool tables, foosball, pingpong, air-hockey, mini shuffle board, plus more), gym, basketball hoops, rock climbing, volleyball, camp store (not open for us, camp cafe (not open for us), and sooooooo much more!!


After that we had a campfire on the beach and talked about our years at school and things we saw God in and funny moments :) It was really good to reflect on those things. Next we did mikveh (yes that is how it's spelled) which is I think a Jewish tradition and even though we're not Jews, its really meaningful to our class. It's were you rededicate your hands, feet, head, and heart to God with water. We did it at 7th grade camp so I didn't do it again, but I did get in the water to have a teacher pray over me about the upcoming high school years. After mikveh there are always a bunch of girls crying and like two guys, but the girls were sobbing. I didn't cry, but I did feel that horrible, crushing, yet sweet feeling that we're moving on. Some guys in the grade were openly making fun of and mocking the girls who were all hugging and crying and I thought that was very uncalled for but I didn't want to let that affect me too much. Overall it was a great experience and we grew a lot closer through it!

Our last big thing together is going to be this Friday which is banquet/graduation. Everyone dresses up for banquet and we have great food and I guess you could say a "show." There will be slideshows, awards, and the worship teams me and Christine are on will lead worship. Then after that we have an after-banquet party at a sports center until 1:00 AM so I'll be exhausted the next day but I'm sure it'll be fun B)
Everything is going so fast but I guess I have to cherish our last days together while I can :( That's sounds so depressing! I honestly had no idea what this post was gonna be about when I started it, but it didn't turn out too bad :P Lol. Ok. Sorry again I haven't been posting much, I've been so busy!

  2. It okay to be scared, I was scared, but I am proof that highschool isn't all that bad. My highschool was a combination of three other schools and those that did not come from my school had a bad reputation. And yeah some of those kids are pretty bad, but some of them have became my best friends.

    Hang out with those that you feel comfortable. If you don't feel comfortable being around someone then don't be around them.

    This is one thing that really affected me. Some of my best friends from middle school turned into some really bad people but it took me a while to figure it out what they truly were. Just make sure that your friends are people that you want to be around. From what I hear of about your friends is that they are pretty awesome people.

    Thy camp sounded really awesome! I am so excited for the camp that I am going to this summer!

    Have a great graduation and banquet! And trust me highschool is not that bad.

  3. aww don't feel that way Sis! You are one-of-a-kind. God made you so special. have you ever thought that maybe you didn't become popular and gain so many friends is because the people at your school are a bad influence? I mean, you said some swear. Consider yourself lucky that God is protecting you from these bad kids. And besides, you have Seana and me. ;) Don't change for anyone. Be yourself because the real you rocks!

    Love,
    Your sis! :D

  5. Wow,11 years in the same school. Now I really don't understand how your school system works.
    I'm sure you'll be fine anyway next year.

    I also nominated you for the Liebster award.

    1. Marian, are you from Europe?? If so, that's why you don't understand :P European and American school systems are very different and I only just learned the difference! But thanks :)

      Also thanks for the award but since I've already gotten it, I'm going to opt out of this one this time around. Thanks so much though!
