Day 24: A book no one would expect you to love

{yay! I'm not as far behind..}

Ok, I must make a confession. This was supposed to be "A movie no one would expect you to love", but I had to change it to book, cuz I though of something great :)

I looooooooove Winnie the Pooh (the original book)!!!!!!!! It's amazing!!!

And not just cuz of nice memories of my childhood and all. No. I literally love this book as a book in itself!!

It's literary genius!!

The way he writes and depicts things is absolutely suberb!!! 

And now I probably made myself look like an idiot.

Oh well.

I still loooove Winne the Pooh!!! :D


Day 23: A way in which you want to be remembered

{btw, the reason I'm so behind is because I had my wisdom teeth removed..}

I want to be remembered as classy.

I want to have the kind of poise to rise above any situation and make the best of it.

 I want to have the kind of grace to take what life gives me with a smile on my face. 

I want to be remembered as someone who helped people. 

I want make people smile everday.

I want to inspire others to be better people.

I want to be remembered as someone who changed things.

Because those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world:

Are the ones who DO.

And have I mentioned I'm CRAZY????? :P


Day 22: A website

{yah, maybe I should}

The person I stole this whole "28 days of February" thing from already took my favorite website - Noteflight!!

So I think I'll chose.... Google!!!!!

Google is amazing. Not only can you search and find out anything under the sun, but you can find any picture, any person, any blog, any book, any video, etc etc etc...

I love Google!!

That was lame, but I'm in a hurry.. Sorry :\


Day 21: Something you know you do differently than most people

{should I stop doing this?}

Let's see. Everything!! HAHA... I actually don't know if some of the stuff I do others do, but let's see....

1. I invent cool things while in the shower

2. I read magazines backwards. Or from the middle to the back and then the front.

3. I make this weird face special to me. I purse my lips together and to the side, and then lift my eyebrows and look up and to the side.

it doesn't look quite as ugly as that...

Yaya!! A terrible webcam pic I just took!!

There are many more weird things I do, but since I am in a hurry to get these all done before March, I will stop now :)...


Day 20: A hobby of yours


So, let's see... As I cannot narrow it down to one, I will add several :)...

Day 19: A talent of yours

{I'm sorry for being so behind, please forgive me}

A talent I have... Hmm... That's hard to say, because I am a perfectionist and never feel like anything I do or make or write is good enough!!

But I'd have to say writing song lyrics would be a talent of mine..

Here are the lyrics to a song I wrote entitled "Good Enough".. 

I just want you to love me
But you can’t see past my flaws
You say you're trying your hardest
But I don’t see you trying at all

I wanna feel alive
I wanna feel free
After all, isn’t this my life?
I have the right to be anyone I want to be

Nothing is ever good enough
I can’t live up to your expectations
I’m so tired of this plastic bubble
I have no desire to be an imitation
In your eyes I can do nothing right
(pickup: But now) I see those words are all a bluff
I’m ready to break out tonight
Baby, tell me, what is "good enough"?

I know I'm really not wanted here
But I have nowhere else to run
I wish that there was someplace I'm wanted
But all I have are places to run from

I wanna feel alive
I wanna feel free
After all, this is my life
I have the right to be anyone I want to be

Nothing is ever good enough
I can’t live up to your expectations
I’m so tired of this plastic bubble
I have no desire to be an imitation
In your eyes I can do nothing right
(pickup: But now) I see those words are all a bluff
I’m gonna break out tonight
And be "good enough"

I will stand on my feet
Even if it means standing alone
I will fight my way free
Even if it means tearing you down

Nothing is ever good enough
I can’t live up to your expectations
I’m so tired of this plastic bubble
I have no desire to be an imitation
In your eyes I can do nothing right
(pickup: But now) I see those words are all a bluff
I’m gonna break out tonight
Baby, tell me, what is "good enough"?

Me. I am good enough.


Day 18: A time when I felt passionate and alive

{>whistles softly while staring at the ceiling<}

Ok, well, for this post, I'm going to have to copy and paste an old blog post from my old blog here (:

"OK, so one day when I was riding, I had an experience with God.

I couldn't get over this jump. I was stressing, Silver was stressing, and Megan (my trainer) was stressing. The lesson wasn't going well. The jump was SUPER easy too..... I was just too stressed.

Out of options, I decided to try to imagine that God was riding behind me and had His arms around my waist. Personally I believe He was. And then also I sang the chorus of By Your Side. Here it is -

I'll be by your side, whenever you fall
In the dead of night, whenever you call
Please don't fight, these hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

You know what's funny?? It wasn't even my fave song at the time. The lyrics were just perfect for the moment. And guess what?!? I got over the jump!

I can't really explain the feeling it gave me, too personal and indescribable for words, It was amazing! I could feel His presence.

That gave me SUCH a high!!! :)"


Day 17: An art piece

{I'm behind, what's new?}

So, let's see. I'm guessing "An Art Piece" is referring to my favorite art piece.

Now, usually I don't like modern art, but this is so awesome and symbolic, I have to say it's my favorite... It's literally like the only modern art piece I like though :P


Day 16: A song that makes me cry and/or laugh

{guess what everybody!! I'm behind!! As usual!! -_-}

Ok, let's see.. A song that makes me cry..

Um, well, I can't really narrow it down, I'll just post a few (:

And now songs that make me smile :)

And now, a song that makes me both laugh and cry {and therefore is my favorite}!!!!!

Day 15: A person you admire

{yada yada yada}

Taylor Swift.

Who else could I choose??

When no one else was there, Taylor Swift and her music were there for me (:

The way she makes people act nicer as soon as she walks in the room. The innocent way she giggles. The way she is so graceful and elegant. The way she never changes herself for anyone else. The way she is honest about embarassing things. The way she stands up for herself. The way she gapes whenever she wins an award. The way she stays fearless in love no matter how many mean boys break her heart. The way she never seems to care about herself, only others. The way she does everything with innocent charm. The way she looks at you out of the corner of her eye. The way she makes people smile and laugh every day. The way she instills hope in girls minds, shows them that life is worth living, and this too shall pass. The way she is always good to people. The way she names her cat, after Meredith Grey on Grey's Anatomy. The way she never considers herself above anyone else. The way she makes every individual in the room feel special. The way she picks herself up after a mistake or embarassment with much poise. The way she forgives others who have done her wrong. The way she is fearless.

I could go on and on...

I hope someday to be able to not only create magical music like she does, but be able to help people, and make this world a better place..


Day 14: A vacation you would like to take

{>whistling softly<}

So, I'm not gonna say Narnia, because unfortunately, as far as we know it's not real... );

So, so I am going to say I want to take a tour of Europe!!

My two best friends: my sister and a guy named, well, I'll call him SB, are planning to go together to Europe (:... Like the summer before I go to college at King's College (in London), maybe...

Necessary Destinations:

Paris, France

Rome, Italy

Venice, Italy

Ireland (lol just in general)

Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England

London, England

And many others....


Day 13: A guilty pleasure

{Yes, yes, yes, I know. I'm terribly behind, and I beg your forgiveness}

Ok, let's see.. A guilty pleasure of mine would beeeeee *drum roll*: potato chips!!!!

my fav chip (:

I know they're awful for me, but I them......

mmmm ...


Yaya!! I tagged myself!!

Haha, this is kinda lame, but Orla, one of the people I tagged on "11 Odd, 11 Questions, 11 Answers"...  And I liked her questions, so I stealed them and I'm gonna answer them (:

{1} Describe yourself in 5 words.

Crazy. Dreamer. Artistic. Imaginative. Lovely. 

{2} Favourite colour combination?

peach and forest green (:

{3} What would be your favourite part of having a relationship?

Well, I am guessing this is referring to a good, healthy relationship. I think the best part is knowing there is someone in this planet who loves you and respects you and will be there for you no matter what. That you're not alone.

{4} Do you walk around home in your bare feet?

Definately!! I HATE socks!!!!! (:

{5} Biggest pet peeve?

Hearing people pop their joints ...

{6} Is there a phase you went through in your younger teen years that you now regret?

Yah!! The phase where I hated myself and thought everyone else did as well...

{7} What would you name a boy? And a girl?

Austin William or Tyler Danny... Taylor Anne or Savannah Starr or Butterfly Elisa or Ariana Selena :P

they almost look like they could be Austin, Butterfly, and

{8} What is your worst habit? 

Talking too loudly.. I have bad hearing and so sometimes I can't hear my own voice well and I talk super loud :\..

{9} Soup or salad?

Both!!! But if I had choice, I'd say soup (:

{10} Where are you right now while answering these questions? Describe your surroundings.

My living room. I'm sitting on a tan, rustic looking couch, to the right is my sister sitting on one of the two chocolate brown lazyboys, and then behind her is our dining table, and the kitchen.. To my left is a huge built-in bookcase that takes up the whole wall, with a tv in the center. My feet are resting on a coffee table that has many rustic red decorations (my mom is into rustic stuff).. Further forward than the coffee table is the front door, and to the right is the stairs to downstairs and futher over the door to the garage and laundry room. Then to the front and left is the doorway into our office.

sorry, they're terrible pictures, but I tried to take them with my webcam (photobooth)...

{11} What was the nicest thing anyone has ever said to you/ done for you?

Someone once told me my hair looked like Taylor Swift's.. That was a lie, but seriously that was sweet!!!!

How's this?

my beautiful big sister

I'll post pix later of what I look like in my dress and heels all that, but this is my hair and makeup :)

Day 8: Write a letter to someone who's changed your life

Dear Megan,

I know it's been a while since we talked, and frankly I wanted it that way. But now I kinda regret it...

When we found out you had leukemia and were going to sell Silver, we were very startled. It was a bit out of the blue. But we prayed and talked about it, and told you we'd like to buy Silver, whom I was just leasing before, if you remember. I had a phenomonal connection with her, and wanted to buy, and so we did. And when we were on the way to pick her up and bring her home, you have no idea how much it hurt when Daddy got that text that you had sold her to someone else. I cried for hours and hours, and honestly, I hated you. You weren't honest with us, and you sold my beautiful mare to someone who didn't even know her; didn't know her favorite food was carrots or that she adored having her forehead rubbed. Someone who didn't love her like I did.

But I've forgiven you now. And now that I've forgiven you, I see what a difference you've made in my life, for the better!!

You taught me to never give up. No matter how many times Silver took off with me or refused to jump, you always made me try again. You told me I was too good a rider and too amazing of a person to give up. You showed me how when I have problems, it's always, always my own fault. You taught me to never look down, because where you look is where you're going. You taught me to sit up straight, and hold my head high, because I was an amazing person, and I was going to make it. You taught me to pull my legs back and be vulnerable, so I could give Silver and others a chance to prove themselves. You taught me trust those who have hurt me, and to give second chances. And you showed me soo much more than that.

So even though you hurt me horribly by your dishonesty, and broke my trust, I forgive and am thankful to you. Because you taught me that. You taught me that people make mistakes and I need to learn to love them despite their faults. 

Thank you, Megan.

And I hope to see you in heaven.
