Hi everyone...it seems like forever since i have posted something. The past couple months have been rather hectic. In August I went back to school after being home-schooled for five years, high school on top of that. I still cannot believe I am already in high school. that just shows me how fast my life has flown by. I still remember to this day, me sitting and wishing I was in high school, now look, I am. High school is way different from elementary and middle school....though there is more freedom, it is also much harder. I get scared sometimes thinking about in just four years I will be graduating, and then off to college. to tell you the truth, I wish I could stay little just a tad longer. My guidance counselor stresses to us freshmen how important it is to start planning for college. He keeps on giving us all this college information, and when I really think about that, I get really nervous. I know that I do not need to worry about all this college stuff as I'm only a freshman, but you can't just ignore it. Before I know it, college will be here, just like high school got here before I knew it. Life in general is different for me as a teenager. Worrying about whether this person likes me, or how I look, etc., but these past couple of months have made me realize that I don't need to turn into a person that I'm not. If someone can't accept me for how I am then they are not the friend for me.

Hi friends. The past couple of weeks have been rather difficult in trying to make a decision. See, each year in the month of July my church youth group heads to camp for a week ( Sun- Fri.), and each year I make the choice not to go. The year before last, I sent in my registration slip, I was packed and ready to go, my parents drove up to the camp with us, and well when it came time to un-pack and get settled in for the week, I chickened out and wanted to go home with my parents! At that point, I didn't care what my friends thought about me; I just wanted to get out of there! As I say sometimes, it was out of my " creature comforts"! Each year, my friends, youth pastor & parents encourage me to go and have a good time, but each time I say NO!! The past couple of months I have felt the burden to go thinking that this would be a "BIG" step in my life! So, this year on Sunday, July 5th, I will be going to camp for the first time in my life! Philippians 4:13 which says, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me," has been a HUGE inspiration to me in the past couple of months in making my decision!

OK...so today is the day. I finally set up my own blog! For the past couple of months I have watched my mom on her blog Home Is As Close As A Robin's Nest. You should check it out. I've been telling myself that I should set up a blog, too, so finally today I took the plunge...yipee! :) WOW! Blogland is amazing, so many things that you can do! I plan to blog about my everyday life happenings and add pictures...sort of like a journal only on the computer and open for the world to see. I pray my love of God and family are reflected in my blog. As for the name of my blog, I'm not always a "Drama Queen," but being 14 sure has its drama moments!!
