Wow, tagged

I always feel compelled to do these things. No idea why. :-D

So Noble tagged me list six random things about myself. Then I get to tag y'all. BUAHAHAHAHA.

1. I am currently sick and about to be really behind and panicky about psychology homework (which I despise).

2. I love the number 16, even though being 16 was not so fun.

3. I want to try pen and ink drawings.

4. I am terrified of failure (failure something like getting a B in a class, and anything worse).

5. I am not a spectacular photographer. ;-)

I now tag: Shannon, Hana, Grace Anne, Joy, and Clayton. Fire away!

"What are you doing Wednesday night?" Karoline asked me on Sunday.

"Um, nothing, I think," I said.

"Do you want to be doing something?" she said.


So Jesse and I, along with Kyle, Kimberly, Kerr, and Caleb (I'm sure Jesse and Evan felt very insecure at being the only two there whose names didn't start with a "K" sound), went over to Karoline and Evan's new apartment on Wednesday night.

As we waited for the Three K's and The C to arrive, we sat in the very neat and tidy living room and talked. As we wandered from subject to subject, we eventually landed on teeth. Jesse had just had his bands changed (to bright red, which makes me laugh), so we discussed all of our various experiences with braces and/or wisdom teeth. Evan has had braces, Karoline has had her wisdom teeth removed, and I've had both, so there was much to ponder.

In the course of the discussion Evan's face suddenly lit up. "Karoline!" he said. "I've remembered something about this chair. I've remembered why the arm wiggles."

Karoline, though surprised, merely asked, "And why is that?"

"It was because when I got my braces, I slammed my fist into the arm of the chair repeatedly because I wanted something else to hurt more than me. That's why the arm wiggles."

And he wiggled the arm to demonstrate.

What with chair wiggling and things like Kimberly's statement that the boys "keep talking about my MOM", it was a very entertaining night.

I Am

This poem template swept through the great blogosphere a while back, but I never jumped on the bandwagon. Now I get to do one for English, so I'm posting it here.

Write your own I Am poem.


I Am

I am golden and ambitious
I wonder why some grapes have spots
I hear music on the wind
I see color calling my name
I want to impart enthusiasm
I am golden and ambitious

I pretend to be a frog
I feel Narnia's magic
I touch a puppy's fur
I worry about fear
I cry for the pain of my friends
I am golden and ambitious

I understand the symmetry of a parabola
I say God is true
I dream of Heroes and friends and cars
I try to excel
I hope for success
I am golden and ambitious

What does it say about my family that four of my sisters (Virginia included) were loudly singing this song at me earlier?

Does this worry anyone else?
