The Difference One Can Make

Feelin pretty dang good. :) Today Karly and Aubrey and I listened to this LDS CD called The Difference One Can Make. Probably thee freaking most inspirational talk I have ever listened to in my whole young life. It was about this guy named Kent Williams who was just an amazing kid. I mean.. I don't know how to convey his story to you in a way that would be as awesome as I heard it and I don't think I ever could. You'll just have to listen to it and hopefully you'll get what I got out of it. Man, this kid is just my HERO. I am determined to do better and be better in pretty much every aspect of my life. Especially journal writing. K, JUST listen to the CD. Do it. For real.
PS, If you didn't already know: I love this church, I love my ward, I love my friends, I love my teachers, I love my parents, I love the prophets, I love Heavenly Father and Jesus, I love the scriptures, I love the Personal Progress program, man I just love LIFE. I mean it, all of it.

Cherry Lemonade.

I have never actually had it. But since it's lemonade, I'm confident that it's fantastic. I'm pretty sure that lemonade is more necessary to my body than water is. It's all I drink in the summer, which I realize probably isn't a good thing. But hey, I'm happy. I'm very happy, in fact. I got stuck in a rut for a while there, but now I have a life, feels like. Went to an open tennis practice at the high school today, and I LOVED it. I feel like I'm progressing in something for once. I feel great since I started back up on tennis. Man, I'm excited for.. I dunno, the rest of the summer. Life's a bowl a' cherries. :D Welp, Cameron's gotta read this before bed. So I gotta stop here. Night.

"Make happy choices." - My Mother.

So I turned on the radio. KOHS-FM, to be exact. Only radio station I will listen to. And this song by Two Door Cinema Club played and it went like this..

Let's make this happen, girl
You gonna show the world that something good can work
and it can work for you
And you know that it will

Made me the happiest I've been all day. I was seriously grinning from ear to ear when I heard these lyrics. And it just made me feel like I could do anything, like my little braid did. And I decided that I need to BE happy. I can make it happen; something good will work. :)

"Surely you don't expect me to believe this is your first time cooking?"
"It's not."
"It's my second, third, fourth, fifth time. Monday was my first time." 


I decided to go on a bike ride.
It didn't go as planned. Nothing I ever do really goes as planned, so I usually don't plan things. But it didn't go as planned in a good way.
Turns out my bike got hung up in the garage. Usually I would just get it down, only the van was underneath it so I couldn't. So I took my satchel and a cherry popsicle, and went on a walk. I had a little friend tag along :D My little 5 year old next door neighbor Haley said hi and began to follow me. We walked together and talked for a while. I asked her questions, and she answered them hilariously :) She is the funniest little thing. I felt like I was just walking around with a friend, it was weird. When I told her I was 10 years older than her, she was amazed. So was I, in fact. I felt really old. Hah. We sat on some swings and shared my goldfish crackers, then she had to go home.

I decided that I needed a friend my age :) So I went and got Karly.
We hung out just us two all night, which hadn't happened it a while and it was so. Fun. We sat and talked in the church parking lot which was HILARIOUS. Sat in a patch of clover. Played that "he loves me, he loves me not." Game with some flowers. Made up some chemicals like "Bloraphyll". We tend to make each other laugh a lot.

Then we went to her house and sat on the porch so we could see the fireworks better. Then we went upstairs and sat on the roof so we could see the fireworks even BETTER. :) It was some good times.

I gotta go get ready for CHARCH.
 Bye :)

It is a BEAUTIFUL day.

Step 1: Take my CD player, my book, and my journal. Maybe a snack.
Step 2: Put them in my Satchel. (or Adventure Bag. I say whichever fits my mood.)
Step 3: Ride my bike somewhere, preferably to the edge of the neighborhood. Like where the sidewalk ends, The Tree, or the old train tracks.
Step 4: Find a shady spot with a view.
Step 5: Do whatever I want to do and enjoy doing it.

I put a teeny little braid in my hair.

Hi. So. I sang for people yesterday. Thank heaven I didn't throw up, cause I certainly felt like it. Not eating yet that day probably had something to do with it too, but I was just NERVOUS. But I did it! :D It was like being in some hipster's polyvore set, sitting around the fire with our instruments and chocolate marshmallows.
I have a new artist to my favorites list, BTW. Named Gavin. That kid can sing a dang song. But anywho. What I really wanted to say was that I put a teeny little braid in my hair. And I mean it when I say teeny. It is very small. It just sits on the right side of my head and gives me this weird sort of confidence. I dunno why, but it just kinda does. Maybe it's some stupid girl thing.
Stupid Girl Thing #1: Just stick something unique in your hair, and you can conquer the world, sister.
Stupid Girl Thing #2: Do. Not. Eat.
Stupid Girl Thing #3: Stay up until 12:58 am blogging about your problems, it's a very good idea.
Stupid Girl Thing #4: Watch That Thing You Do! Twice in a row while folding socks and eating potato pancakes, for it is quite enjoyable. (no sarcasm this time)

You know what, I am going to read my scriptures and say my prayers and lay in bed. I dunno about sleeping. But good night. Don't do drugs. Stay in school. Tell people you love them. And all that jazz.
