Lately

Ok, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks, so highlights:

School is over. Finished a couple weeks of summer school to help me catch up, and have done better in math than I did before. Yeah.

Funeral. Sad. ūüė¶

Week spent with my cousins (all young kids) and NO WI-FI. I went though withdrawal.

That awkward/ awesome moment when your twelve year old cousin tells you that she likes you better without makeup.

Family vacation, seeing my siblings tonight. Spent most of today in pajamas.

Sun, pool, ninety degrees. Ocean breeze. Why am I on the computer?

You’re Bored? That’s So AWESOME. – Fevered Mutterings

http://mikesowden.org/feveredmutterings/awesome-boredom

Ok, time to be frank. I am so guilty of being bored. I’m also tired of it. I can honestly say that it is now my goal to go through every step and link that Mr. Mikeachim has suggested.

No, really. It’s going to be epic.
