Another Update!

I  haven't been here in a few days, but I'm back :D
On Monday, I decided to do #7 from my list, Write in a Journal. I am not usually the person to ever write a journal, but I decided to make one. Hopefully, I will get more than a few pages in within the next year! 
On Tuesday, I decided to do #23, Make Jell-O! I used to make Jell-O all the time at my Grandma's house! We would make it together, and it was always fun to eat when it was finished setting! We always couldn't wait the four hours though, and would end up eating it why it was setting! It was a great sweet treat to make, and it only took 5 minutes! I recommend you make it if you have it in the pantry!
Today, I decided on doing #3 from my list, Run Through the House Naked Singing Loudly. This sounds like possibly the weirdest/stupidest idea I could have put on my "50 Things To Do When Bored" list, and it is. I chose it today because it is the middle of the week, and I have been pretty busy, so it seemed easy, and not long. But, I never really ended up doing it since it didn't seem right. A bit goofy right? I recommend instead blasting some music in your room and dancing! That is so much better!
bye, and ttyl.

Day 21 (3 weeks through!)

Yesterday, I hit the 3 week mark! Yay! :) Another month to go... :D
For yesterdays task, I decided doing #9 from my "50 Things To Do When Bored" list, which is call a friend. I try to call my friends as often as I can to catch up on whats been going on. Since the summer after 6th grade, my best friend Joni and I have talked on the phone at least a few times a week. Each evening since then, we try to set time aside to talk on the phone for at least 20 minutes. We have had our share of long conversations! Sometimes, they have been as long as maybe 100 minutes? That's rare, but always a nice conversation!
Since summer just ended and it's been a bit busy around here, we haven't been able to talk on the phone as frequently. Yesterday however, I called Joni, and we had a nice conversation which ended the summer well.
This gets me thinking, and me being my curious self, I have to ask, when was the last time you sat down and talked to a friend on the phone? This doesn't exactly include 1 minute conversations on the cell phone though...I mean, talking for at least 10 minutes catching up on life? If your vision is blurry, and you can't remember, I say, set aside some time soon and call a friend of yours! It will remind you of the wonderful people in your life, and the memories, and that sure is always great!
take care, and I hope you get talking!
tomorrow btw, I will discuss today's task. I'm a bit slow....

Say Hello!

School starts so soon for me, which is crazy! :P
I am not quite that happy about it....but, I need to go and learn! 
Yesterday, I had a great day! I hung out with my BFF's, and we had fun at the mall, saw the movie Eat Pray Love, and went back to my friend Isabelle's house, and had a neighborhood party which was very exciting!
Yesterday, I decided on doing #45 from my list, Talk to a Stranger. However, instead of talking to just one stranger, I talked to more than a few! :) Since it was a neighborhood party, I got to meet a lot of new people  who were all very nice and friendly. I met a couple girls my age who went to a high school nearby, and met some older couples, while eating good food throughout! It was a wonderful evening, and I enjoyed meeting new people. 
I say, if you are faced with a new experience, take it! You will be able to meet new, and hopefully inviting people that could be future friends down the road. :) The easiest way to meet new people is by saying Hello, and asking them a little bit about themselves. Tomorrow, is my first day of my 3rd year in high school, and I am excited. Hopefully, there will be a few new people that I can meet, and become friends with, and I will make sure to say Hello. :D We will just have to wait and see!
Tomorrow, I will give you tell you about what I did from my list today, since I am going to bed now, and if I stay up later, I will be very sleepy tomorrow. Not the perfect way to start off my day! Hope your new school year starts wonderfully!
take care!

Update :)

Sorry once again about yesterday's late post.
Today, I decided to combine yesterday's and today's blog entry if that is okay!
I'm a bit behind the 8 ball at the moment, (school stars Monday :( )
and I have tried to do as much as I can to prepare for the first day! I recently got my permit which was very exciting, and have started a bit of behind-the-wheel driving. It has been exciting, nerve-racking, crazy, ohhh the list continues! 
Anyway, yesterday, the 18th day of this "adventure" I might call it, I spent Reorganizing part of my Closet, #8 from my list. I neatly organized my clothes by color, and the type of clothing article. It looks quite spiffy I might add, and will be a great way to start off my school year since I won't have to worry about where certain items of mine are! :) I still have a bit of closet cleaning to do though. The floor needs a bit of a look-see.:p
Today, was a nice day! I attempted to do # 47 from my list, go a day without tv, computer, ipod, cellphone, etc. however, it did not work in the end. I am using my phone, ipod, computer, daily, and it is hard to breakaway, especially this time of the year! I am in contact with my friends, a lot! I will make sure though that I will set aside a day, or even try a week!, to go without those mainly used electronics.
Today, I decided to tackle # 10 from my list, Go through old CD's and listen to them. I went through and listened to some old Kelly Clarkson, Karaoke CD's (featuring Britney Spears, Pink, etc. haha), and Hilary Duff. I even decided to sing a little karaoke too! It was fun I must say! I wish I looked through more CD's, although time ran short. My Mom and Dad have a lot of 60's and 70's music which always gets interesting listening to. Hehe. I will make sure to look more in the future! 
This weekend and next week will be crazy, but I will come back and work on this crazy fun blog!
Check in soon. Take care.

Show The LOVE

Sorry about the late blog post from yesterday. Yesterday, Day 17, I decided to do #36 from my list, Do something special for a parent or guardian. My Mom had friends over yesterday, and I had my friend Isabelle over too. For my Mom and her friends, Isabelle and I made them dessert. We made Berry Cobbler, which was a yummy, quick, and easy way to have them bond over a treat and tell them how much they mean to me. :) 
If you ever have the idea of doing something nice for a parent or guardian, make them something. There are a million things you can do for them to share your love, but I think that making them something is the most meaningful. Since I am almost always in the kitchen, making a treat or dish for someone is one of my ways of showing love, but you can also write them a card, help them around the house voluntarily, or even just tell them how much they mean to you. 
I love my parents very much, and I try constantly to tell them how much they mean to me. You should too. 
Take care.
For my recipe of Berry Cobbler, you can get it here from my Youtube Channel:

Just Keep Singing...

Today I decided doing #30 from my list, Sing Karaoke. 
I used to sing quite a bit when I was younger. Like many other young girls, I had the dream that I would one day become a famous singer. Although that isn't want I want to do now or anytime soon, I still sing. Usually on a long car ride, I will bust out my Ipod and sing some of my favorite music, which my parents and brother aren't too thrilled at the idea of hearing me constantly for a couple hours. :)
It was nice getting out my old karaoke machine today, and putting in some old Kelly Clarkson music, and singing. I sang to her song "A Moment Like This" which is a favorite of mine. When I was in the 5th grade, I decided to sing that very song at my 5th grade talent show. It was nice singing it once again.
Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Bring out those vocals from within! It is a anxiety reducer, (for me anyway) and a good way to sing some good tunes. Remember, if you are feeling stressed, just keep singing, and it will help it go away...
Take care.

Pre-School Clean-up? I say, YES!

Day 15 of my "50 Things To Do When Bored" list has been completed! Yippee!
I decided to do #49 from my list today which was Collect clothes, toys, etc. and send them to a Goodwill. It was an easy task that will hopefully brighten someone's day. My Mom and I gave away to our Goodwill some articles of old clothing, a couple board-games, books, and other odds and ends. My mom decided that since our garage was such a mess, it needed to be spruced up, and that gave us the perfect opportunity to get rid of some of our things and give them to someone who needed them. I was glad that I participated because it was one extra way that I could easily do something for someone without spending a lot of time. 
Have you ever considered doing something like this? If you have, I strongly suggest you do.
If you have done something like this before however, when was the last time did it? If you are having a difficult time remembering, I say, pick out a day within the next few weeks and get rid of some older gear, and give it to someone in need. It won't take you too long, and will help you clean up your space!
Please, if you have the time, do it. Although school is right around the corner, and it is a busy time of the year, doing this will help you feel like you contributed something important for others. Believe me, it won't only help you, but it will help someone else too. Take care, and get cleaning! :)
