a topic, and I talk about it. Which is basically just a regular blog… but it’s alliterative!!! You can’t expect me not to indulge the alliteration!!!! So anywayz, if you’d like to suggest future topics for me to talk about, that’d be really awesome. Or not. I can come up with my own topics. Probably. Like today! Today I came up with my very own idea! In two parts, no less!
Part I: 2012
So, 2012 has been a pretty great year. Just, so many cool things have happened! I mean, for one, we started this blog. I personally think it’s been a really fun way to keep up with what’s going on with everyone. There’s been Disney, and Vlogging, and challenging (often ignored… sorry, Anna Beth…),and just general happiness and friendship! And then there was kind of the
push that got the blog going in the first place- all the cool places that everyone went to. I got to hear about New Zealand, Britain, Haiti, and so many places, even though I didn’t go any farther than camp in Tennessee. Which was another awesome thing! Camp was the best! There was Jesus and amazingness and scarybutawesome trust falling and I’m so glad I got to go! Summer was also when I got my first job, and we tried to make a web series. That… sort of got put on hold on account of technology hating us… but I know that I had a lot of fun working on the script and filming and everything, and I’m still really hoping that we can eventually someday finish it and make it into a thing that we can watch.
Summer ended, and we all had to go back to school, but why would we let a little thing like that stop our fun? I know at Western we had sleepovers and bedtime stories (precedent having been set by our mini road trip to Shelby’s house to see her off to Haiti- the story of how everyone met her soul mate except Shelby doesn’t believe in soul mates will go down in history as the best bedtime story of all time), and I heard a lot about retreats and concerts and fun adventures from everyone who wasn’t here. Plus, I had the ongoing task of finishing 30 books by the end of the year, with Jill’s promise of either a prize or a surprise depending on whether I could complete the task. And I did! Which leads us up to New Year’s Eve and how Jill, Anna Beth, and I got to eat that cake. It was yummy. I’m sorry the rest of you had to miss out. We also experienced our own little apocalypse when the power went out not long before midnight- but don’t worry, we survived! And then the clock struck midnight (as Anna Beth dropped a beach ball and Jill played Auld Lang Syne on her iPhone. Such a classy way to ring in the New Year :) Which leads us to…
Part II: 2013
Now it’s 2013, and we have a whole new year to fill with awesome things! For one thing Shelby and Amber and GRADUATING in like 4months. How insane is that? I can’t believe my friends are growing up… so they’ll be moving on to real(ish) life. Even though neither of you are blogging full time this year, I hope you’ll stop by on occasion to tell us what it’s like on the other side of your diplomas :) Then Sanaa’s going to Chile to be all international and cool, and she had also better tell us all about her awesome adventures. And, most relevant to me, road trip is happening this summer! There’s going to be driving, and driving, and lots of driving, and also VidCon! Obviously I can’t predict everything that’s in store for us, individually and as friends, in the coming year, but I look forward to finding out, one day at a
So… that’s the first blog of the year. What has passed and what is coming. See how original I am? It’s not like it’s a totally obvious
thing to do on the first day of the year…
Love you guys!!!
