Goodbye 2011.....Hello 2012!

Usually, when a new year is aproaching, I don't think anything about it. We're going into another year and I'm getting one year older, so why should I care? Have you ever felt that way?

I no longer feel that way. The new year is going to be a good time for me. I am going to completely renew myself for the better. I am going to excersise more and eat healthier and be a nicer and outgoing person.

Those are basically my new year's resolutions. Do you have any?

I am welcoming 2012 with opening arms and yes, I have heard about what most Americans(I think it's only American's that are saying this) believe that the world is going to end in 2012, somewhere around this time next year.

Do I believe it?

In Scientific terms, the world isn't supposed to end until the sun is 50 billion years old and blows up. The sun is only 25 billion years old so we've got a ways to go.

In religion terms, mine being Christian, the world could end at any time but when it does, we will heard trumpets and God will return and take all his believers to heaven.  We never know when this may happen.

It could be five seconds.
Five minutes.
Five hours.
Five days.
Five weeks.
Five months.
Five years.
Five thousand years.
Five million years.
Five billion years.

We have no clue.

I am going to make 2012 the best year of my life and since I will be starting high school next year, I hope that it will be the best year. I will let all of you know.

Quick questions:

Do you believe in 2012?
What are your plans for 2012?

My answers:
I'm going to high school for the first time and I am going to the beach for the first time.

Are you ready to embrace 2012 with open arms? Tell me.

My Christmas Present

I never expected much for Christmas because in my mind, Christmas wasn't about the gifts. I never gave my parents a long lists of things that I wanted, I just gave a few items that I said I would like to have.

I didn't get much. But I got the best present I think I've ever received on Christmas.

I'm usually not the one to choose favorites but I have choosen who my favorite cousin is. I have so many cousins so if they found out that I was saying this I would most likely be in trouble but I think it's pretty obvious to the family about who my favorite cousin is. His name is Chad and I've been around him my whole entire life. He used to baby sit me and even though my daddy and him don't really see eye to eye, I still try my hardest to be around him.

I got to hang out with him for about two hours yesterday and that was more than I asked for. It had been months since I had gotten to see him and yesterday, I took full advantage of being around him.

We took a couple pictures, talked about everything, and he even wrestled around with me and my sister. (Something else you will learn about me, I'm always tough when it comes to being around boys. I am a good wrestler but the only problem was that Chad runs too fast!)

He compliments me alot. He talked about how pretty I looked in the pictures and how I had pretty hair and all this junk. But what I really liked was when we started talking about college and what I wanted to do.

I want to be a cop when I grow up, to prove that a girl can be tough. I was talking about how I wanted to major in Criminal Justice and then his wife broke in saying how i needed to join some clubs and keep my grades up because the colleges want a well-rounded person. Chad broke in and said that even if I didn't join any clubs and only had good grades, he would go down to the college and tell them about how much i am a well rounded person because he knows me. Then he said that if they still didn't want to accept me, he would smash them upside their head. That was my favorite part of the day.

Before I left to head home, I gave him a big hug, told him that I loved him and he returned the favor with a kiss on my forehead. I told him that I liked his mohawk that he kept hidden under his baseball hat and I said that we had to see each other more often. He said yes, we do and I plainly said that he needed to work on it.

Our conversations that day ranged from my aunts picking around with my mama telling them that they could take the babies home to see what it was like to be a grandparent, but my mama  retailliated(I spelt that wrong) with saying that they would have to take me and my sister with them. My aunt Jalene said that she would take me and my other aunt Debbie said that she would take Megan. Chad butted in and said that he would take me, causing a big smile come across my face.

Yesterday, seeing him was my best Christmas present and I hope that I get to see him more. I barely ever see him because he's busy working and I can never catch a ride down to his house, considering that we both live in different states but it only takes about an hour to get to his hometown. Hopefully, we can see each other more and when I get my licenses, I can see him twenty times more!

So tell me, what was your best Christmas present?

Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve everybody!
I, for one, absolutely love Christmas and everything about it. I don't look at it like most teenagers my age do, though. Suprise, suprise, right?

My family has traditions that we do every year that I refuse to break and even when they aren't phsyically able to ride us around to go see the Christmas lights around town, then I will personally be my sisters driver. My little sister may only be three years behind me but she deserves to grow up with the same traditions that I did.

Every year the Christmas tree was up on the First Saturday of December. Everybody who wanted to help would help but unfortuntley for me, this year I wasn't feeling very well on that specific day and wasn't really in the Christmas mood yet so my younger sister ended up decorating the Christmas tree by herself. She seemed to like it and she did an absolutely outstanding job.

Another tradition is that a couple days before Christmas, all of us will gather up in the car and ride around for about an hour just looking at the Christmas Lights that people have set up in their front yard. Not many people around here did it as much as we had hoped but I don't blame them seeing as bad our economy is. They probably didn't have enough money to pay for the light bill that would increase with the beautiful Christmas lights. We still rode around, knowing this information. In less than three years, I will have my licenses and I will be able to drive everyone around then. I can't wait for that.

The last tradition that I intend on carrying on is every Christmas Eve, each kid gets to open one present and one present only to get them excited for the following day. My sister and I couldn't wait until today so we opened our present last night, after riding around and looking at Christmas lights. I ended up getting the box with some small things in it. My mom had put in that box a small replica of a License plate that you put on the back of the car with my name on it. I thought that was really cool! Another thing was she had bought me a small lime green frog(frogs are my favorite animal, as long with lime green being my favorite color) and some lime green fingernail polish. It wasn't much but it's the thought that counts. I can't wait to open up the rest of the presents tomorrow.

Christmas isn't about presents though, in my opinion. Most teenagers only care about what they get and to be honest, I used to be that person. When I was just a little be younger, around my sister's age, I thought that presents meant everything because that's the only time of year that my mom would buy me whatever I wanted. If i didn't get something amazing then I would flip. Now, I honestly couldn't care about what I get on Christmas. It is my Savior's birthday and it is the day to be spent with family and that's all that matters.

I'm completely different than I was years ago and I am happy for that. "You have a good head on your shoulders. The good Lord is going to bless you because of the good things you have done." My grandma told me those words last weekend and I couldn't be more happy. I love my grandma to peices and I love my whole family to peices. They are my everything and this Christmas, I will be trying my best to spend the whole day with both sides of my family even though they don't necissarily like each other but they do live less than twenty minutes from one another. I will be going back and forth. Wish me luck!

I hope that all of you have a Wonderful Christmas and remember that presents aren't what Christmas is all about. Be happy that you are getting something, even if it isn't worth much, and that you have roof over your head and people that love you.

Wow, I'm sounding my parents but oh well. Merry Christmas from this Country Gal! :)

Gettin' Started.

Hello Wonderful person that decided that they want to read something about me! That bear over there(I named him Scooter) wanted to see who was reading something that I was posting so I let him see you! He says hey!

Haha, anyway, if you can't already tell, I am a little big weird. No scratch that, I am a whole lot weird. I'm like a mixer of everything. I am Country(That's a big part of me) but I'm a nerd, emo(emotional) all combined. I guess that's why I'm so hyper all the time, I'm not really sure about that though. That might have something to do with my parents.

I am new to this blog thing but I've wanted a blog for a while and I think I've figured this site out. It's easier than the other's that I've tried before so I'm not even getting into detail over them. It's already forgotten.

I am a creative writer, I write most of my time. That's the part of me that is a nerd. I have an account on this website where I post my stories/writing on and I think my fans like them. I have so far...144 fans, I believe. I'm not sure. I never imagined in a million years that I would have over one hundred people following me on that website. I guess I kind of got lucky. I read a lot on that website too. That's my nerd.

I am emotional because I can get real deep, real fast. I have my opinions on things and I'm literally not afraid to express them. I believe strongly in everything I do and if I want to be wild and crazy, then I will. If I want to sit down and have a deep conversation with someone, then I won't hesitate to try. I am very passionate about everything that I am and stand for so if somebody tries to mess with that then I won't think twice about standing up for myself. Simple, really.

The biggest part of myself is being Country. I grew up in the country, I have the accent, and I believe that all Country people are amazing people. I am considered a Redneck but being Redneck and Country are the exact same thing in my mind. My whole family is Country and I love them to peices. I could go on and on about being Country but I'm not going to waste your time.

So I'm gettin' started on this website and I am going to post something at least once a day. That's my promise.

Merry(early) Christmas! 3 more days!

Quick question:
       Who is country, has dark hair, has recently got her ears peirced, has ten fingers, and is really excited about Christmas?
