I am not: normal
I hurt: when others hurt
I love: my friends and family
I hate: sin
I hope: in God
I hear: voices in my head
I crave: coffee
I cry: alot
I always: dream
I long to: grow up
I feel alone: in this world
I listen: but I don't hear anything
I hide: where no one can find me
I drive: my friends and family crazy
I sing: and can't stop
I dance: with the wind
I search: for meaning
I feel: sad
I fail: constantly
I sleep: when my mind and body are tired
I need: a hug
I am: different
I think: because I want to do right
I exist: to glorify God in everything I do

And if you read this, please comment.. even if you only do to say hi. :)

Everyone needs to come to our play! The performances are Thursday, April 28 and Friday, April 29, 7 p.m. at in the new basement at 2nd RPC. If you need directions just leave me a note. And if you didn't already know - I play Beth March! :)
Tonight my dad took me out to dinner. We didn't get to go to the father/daughter banquet because I had my lifeguarding class. We went to P.F. Cheung's in Castleton. It's a really nice (and expensive) Chinese restaurant. I really liked it. Then we went to Sam's Club and walked around looking at stuff. That was fun too.
Tomorrow I'm going to my brother Andrew's special Olympics swim meet. I haven't been to one of their practices yet this season because I've had so much other stuff going on on Monday nights, though I have worked with him on some of his swimming after swim team in the mornings. His best stroke is butterfly - and he's swimming the 50 fly tomorrow.

Swim Team started back up this week - we had a break for like 2 weeks. Morning Practices start next week. Which since we're starting back I'm gonna try to go to 2 practices a day - though I don't know how the rest of my schedule will work out. And Life Guarding started this week too, so I skipped choir on Tuesday an Wednesday to go to that. It's been interesting - there are 3 guys and 6 girls. All the girls I know either from swim team or well... I just know Jessica. Tomorrow we're going to learn CPR, which should be very interesting. And then on Monday - Chris has to rescue me and I have to really struggle and like try to drown her.... that should be fun. :)
Tonight is SONrise and I heard we're making movies or something like that. I think I'll have to sleep at least a little bit because I have class tomorrow, but its no fun if everybody else gets to stay up and you have to sleep - so I guess I'll see. Should be fun anyway. :) And I'm not going to say anymore or else I'll have nothing to update about next time. :)

Oh and I updated my links - Sorry it took me so long Sara!!! Luv ya

Anything is possible

Yesterday Amanda Beard - an Olympic swimmer - pulled out of the World Swimming Trials because her 200 individual medley record was broken by a 15-year-old girl. Katie Hoff of Abingdon, Md. Her time was 2 minutes 11.24 seconds. I find this so encouraging that 1) She actually made it and broke a record and 2) she's 15. I guess its also kinda discouraging, because I'm not anywhere close to that fast right now, but knowing she worked hard to get there and she did well, is motivation enough to do it too. :)

Monday I'll be downtown at the Natatorium singing the national anthem with my choir. So hopefully I'll get to see a little bit of the swimming. I would go to the whole thing, but it costs $40... and all the money I have is like pledged to a cause. :)

I just got back from a wonderful evening downtown at the Nat. It was very exciting, first my choir sang, and then my friend Charity Osborne and I decided to stay and watch the swimming, which was VERY cool. Afterwards we bought swim caps and waited for the swimmers to come up so we could get their autographs. And then we waited FOREVER to get Michael Phelps... but we finally did. And we also got pictures with Chairty's picture phone, which I will post as soon as she sends them to me.
The coolest part though was when I got to meet Katie Hoff. Its kinda scary to think she's the same age as me, like she's a freshman in highschool and she's actually THAT good. Well I have to go to bed now, so as soon as I get the pictures I will post them!!!!

And I have to go... I'm going shopping!!!! :)
