I've been spending alot of time with my bestfriend, Amanda :):).
Which is pretty wonderful, since everytime we hang out, we manage to have a fun time. After practice, she usually comes over and we hang out. The other day we went to this thrift store type thing, Finder's Keepers, and found some neat stuff. Like the $6 cat bookbag, as shown below :P, along with the striped rampage shirt, which was clearance too. I sure do love a bargain. Afterwards we went grocery shopping, and I brought her home where we cleaned my porch, found adorable baby kittens in the back of my dad's truck, and took some pictures. After she left, I was still feeling in the photography mood, so I made good use of my tripod and took some shots.
the thriftshop bookbag, hahah i love it.
and those were just the ones i took as a result of my own boredom.. :P
Ah, yes. So lately it's been alot of Amanda time :), and I love it. I have such a strange sense of humor, but oddly enough, hers is basically the same. We find the same things funny that noone else does, and we'll know what eachother's laughing at before we even say anything. As many of you have posted, laughter is essential, and our friendship definitely has that component. Plus we have all the serious stuff down too, like we have alot of the same dreams for the future, but with variation. Like I want to be a writer, or something of the sort, and she wants something with photography/artistic, maybe health oriented too. We both want our own business maybe. Perhaps a conjoined one is in store, a bookstore/bakery. Hmm, we shall see. But I really do love spending time with her, I'll miss her when she's gone like.. all next week :(. Boohoo.
Soccer is improving. It's already not as strenuous as the beginning, like when he made us do this "Indian Run" drill, I thought we were just being punished for not doing so well on the previous drill he had set up, but once we finished it, he told us we were done. I was shocked, I thought we still had a good 20-30minutes left of practice before he thought of letting us go... haha. I'm not really athlete material, but I think I'm doing better this year. I'm noticing my passes actually get to the person they're meant for the majority of the time, and I can actually kind of control the ball. Hopefully this season will be better than I had thought. :). I'm keeping positive.
Today was my last day of work, for awhile anyways. Weekend tournaments will start up later in September or October, but that's it. So I'm free :D! I spent today working the store with the lady who used to teach me in second grade, JoAnne. She's super nice, she even brought me a book to borrow, "The Memory Keeper's Daughter", it looks really interesting. I like working with her, she's good to talk to, about school/future related things especially. Syrcause University was a college she reccomended for writing.. so I'll consider it. I do like it down there :).
Our county fair has been going on all week, and I haven't gone once :(. It's kind of disappointing, cause I've gone every year. But this year, Amanda's leaving on Saturday, and we're shopping tomorrow plus we have our class, and then I don't know who would go with me Saturday if I went... Julie's going tomorrow, and Shayla's leaving to take her sister to college, so meh. I'm hoping Tom will go with me, but he's not really too into the fair. I don't know if I can beg him into going :P. I'm sure going to try though. If not, maybe I'll go alone, kinda lame, but whatev.
Alright, I feel like I'm writing waayy too much here, hahah. So if you've bothered to read this, congrats! & thanks a ton. As I get busier and busier, it may get harder for me to write as often, but I really will try to keep it up, and keep updated with everyone else's blogs :). I like this too much to quit now, hahah.
But as for now, I'll end this with a clone picture Amanda and I made :D
