My mom has been looking for this song for years, but could never think of who sang it, or what the lyrics were… we just found the song today.
1. My little sister is 13 years younger than me.
2. I’m missing a tooth-but you can’t tell at all.
3. I’m teaching myself piano, but we’ll save that for a later post.
4. I’m quiet until ya’s gets to know me… which has gotten me in trouble before. There’s still a few people out there who think I honestly don’t care about them, when in all actuality it’s my lack in communication skills.
5. A few of the things that fascinate me include: History, Carnivals, People, Fine Arts, and Foreign places, along with many other things…
6. I enjoy quoting movies, tv shows, and music lyrics.
7. I’m a big supporter of Linux.
8. I still sometimes watch old Disney, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon shows.
9. Currier, of Currier and Ives, is an ancestor of mine.
10. After college, and before I start my career in Social Work, I plan on opening a few small business’s-a coffee shop, a sandwich shop with my brother, a roller skating rink, and an icee shack. Okay, I’m getting way ahead of myself, but those are just what I’d like.
I only have a short time before my room is to be finished. Think I can make it? We only have 3 weeks until the house is to be completely packed. I feel like the end is approaching quickly. By this time next month, I’ll be an official citizen of Michigan.
Boxes are beginning to pile up in my room, and my book shelves are looking pretty empty.
As I write this I can hear my mom downstairs taping up filled boxes.
I’m listening to my Johnny Cash Pandora station while packing up clothes, but I decided to quick take a break and write.
Suppose I should get back to work though.
“Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called “The Pledge”. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called “The Turn”. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”.”
Moving a family-difficult, but not impossible.
In the 17 years of my life I’ve lived in aproximately 6 states, 9 cities, and 12 different houses.
Quick statistic: I move about every 2 years. There’s nothing wrong with that statistic though. We just never seem to settle in one location.
Though I’ve moved more times then your average person, I enjoy it. I get to experience life in a new place. New towns = new people, new history, new places, and new adventures.
Of course, there’s always a part of me that feels sad-but overall I like the change.
