Hola! Como estas?

Helloooooo. Katie, your post made me uber happy! I can't wait to hear more of your fabulous Belgian experiences. Mac and I both miss you dearly! Okay, so, you know how the church apparently wants to go to Haiti for the mission trip next summer? I wanna go SOOOOO bad! That would be amazing. If I loved Puerto Rico, then I bet I would love a bigger mission trip 10 times more! I can't wait! I hope I can convince my mom to let me and Lexi go. And I hope both of you are back in time to go too! =]

So, do you want to hear my current playlist? As Kenzie knows, I've recently developed an obsession with Jason Mraz. He's so awesome. I really like John Mayer too. So hear it goes (In no specific order): <--Ahah, thats not meant to be a sad face :
1. If it's Love - Train (Katie, thats the song we heard in your car that one time!)
2. In your Atmosphere - John Mayer
3. Slow Dancing in a Burning Room - John Mayer
4. Plane - Jason Mraz (I adore this song!)
5. One Love - Jason Mraz
6. Life is Wonderful - Jason Mraz
7. Hey Love - Jason Mraz
8. Brothers and Sisters - Dave Barnes (That was on the Toms A Day Without Shoes youtube video)

This is how you spell A-C-A-D-E-M-I-C-A-L-L-Y

I'm not gunna lie, I'm already irritated with school. At this very moment I have chemistry homework that I should be doing, but I just can't find the will power to do it. It's 10:00 pm and my brain is already achedemically fried for tonight from math homework. (Haha, I rest my case! Notice how I spelled academically. Wow Sam.) So I decided to complain about it instead. I know, so much more productive and effective right?

Our first week of block scheduling starts tomorrow! I had it wrong, we have block scheduling on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I get out at 12:55 on Thursday! Incase you were wondering. lol.

So I'm really excited because today is a very special day. It is the 24th of Augest! And if you don't know why this day is so important, get off this blog!! Hehe, only kidding... sort of. The 3rd Hunger Games book, Mocking Jay, came out today! I can't wait to read it. I also really wanna see Vamires Suck. I'm a Twilight fan and everything, but that movie looks hilarious.

Someone else should post something (COUGH COUGH MACKENZIE) because I'm starting to feel like an idiot having the majority of the updates be mine...

1st Day Back at School

Katie, you left today and I'm hoping you're having a good trip so far. Good luck on all those airplanes! lol. And Mac, you have yet to post anything, just saying... lol.

Well today was my first day as a junior in highschool. Gosh, I feel old. It's way different this year because my school decided to make the schedule all wack. We have 7 hours a day now except block scheduling on Thursdays and Fridays. Except most thursdays we'll have an early release? It's weird. Espcially since in past years we had the plain and simple 6 hours a day. And now I have all these different lunches, it's insane. My classes are different this year too now that I got all my required classes out of the way. So I decided to take art as a junior. Yeah, bad idea. I walked into that class room and didn't recognize one single face. And do you know why that is? Because they stuck me with a bunch of annoying freshman (no offence to any lower classmen who may or may nt be reading this, don't take it personally.) I'm litterly the only junior in there. every single one of them is a freshman. BOO! It's gunna be a loooooooong year.

Hawaii

Just thought I'd post a few pictures from my family vacation to Hawaii. We stayed at the Royal Kahana in Maui. It was amazing! I loved it! The first picture is from the Royal Lahaina Luau. The was awesome. I really enjoyed it. Buff, shirtless, Hawaiian men in hula outfits. What's not to love? It was quite entertaining. The next picture is at Dragon Teeth? If thats what its called? I was trying to be Rafikki holding up baby Simba because I adore the lion King. But I didn't have a baby lion handy so behold the sacred plastic water bottle. The third is our rental car liscence plate. No state in the continental U.S. has that sweet of a liscense plate. I'm jealous. And the last is just me and my sisters. We got greeted at the air port with leis! It was cool. I say Mac and katie should put a couple pics on from their vacations since I'm the only one whose actually updated this thing... haha.
