new changes.

as you can see, i've finally started making the changes to my layout...i'll finish up soon.


okay, my dad feels much better now. he went to work yesterday for a little while, and we aren't canceling church or anything else as far as i know.

my maw-maw is out of the hospital and is feeling much better as well.

thanks for your prayers.

well today sure was eventful.

yeah...my dad somehow like ruptured a disc in his spine or something and he had to go to the doctor, and he's on a lot of drugs, and he feels really bad. so pray for him please. also, since it may take a while for him to get back to feeling completely normal and everything, we may have to cancel some of our holiday plans. we were going to go to visit family in alabama after christmas but that may not happen. also, my dad won't be able to preach this sunday and i don't know if our other pastor has a sermon ready or not, and if he doesn't, he has a lot of work to do. we might actually end up canceling church (which we DO have to do sometimes, but it's rare) so yeah....

also i had a sandwhich today with some turkey on it that smelled like fir trees. that was a rather weird experience....
for some reason my mom keeps getting weird tea. we usually get the wal-mart brand stuff but a week or so ago she bought lipton instead, and it tasted gross, then she finally got the wal-mart stuff again but it was a different kind so it still tastes kinda weird. but at least we have something to drink at all.

oh, yeah, and algebra is really confusing me this week. i'm getting 60's on my tests and i can't figure it out...my dad has tried to help me but it didn't work. so anyway...i have yet to figure out what's going to happen with that....sigh.

pray for my grandma.

she has heart problems. they say that one of her heart chambers is stronger than the other, and that could somehow cause a heart attack. so they have four options to try to fix the problem, including stopping her heart to see if it starts back normally, and it's all just really, well, not fun. so please pray for her.

well tomorrow starts the last week of the school year. i've been waiting a lot recently...waiting for this week, waiting for my tablet to come, waiting for christmas, oh how suspenseful it is...

by the way, sorry it's taking me so long to make the layout changes i was talking about. i'm working on it!

this recital.

we had a christmas piano recital today for some people at a nursing home. it was kinda sad and depressing because all the parents were standing around kinda awkwardly, and you could tell they were kinda itching for the whole thing to end so they could just get to the refreshments. a couple of us were late getting there, and half of us couldn't play our songs right. but fortuneately i did better than i expected to. i had three songs to play: a quadret (2 pianos, 8 hands)of oh holy night, a duet of do you hear what i hear, and a solo of carol of the bells. they had a grand piano in the room, which was really nice because in all the previous years they've always had this old little mini-upright thing that sounds like a 50-year-old recording of a sick chicken. trying to sing. anyway, one of the keys on the new grand piano was broken, so we ended up having to play on the keyboard (which we had brought anyway because we had to do the quadret on keyboards). so yeah i guess a lot went wrong but everyone loved it and they said they didn't notice when we messed up. besides, the residents enjoyed it and that's something they don't get to experience very often. it's gotta get so boring at assisted living centers.

oh, and youth group saturday! i had a great time! i loved to be able to discuss the message with my friends because that's something i rarely do at my own church, and i had a lot of fun meeting people and talking and everything. you'll definitely be seeing me there again!

i guess we all have these posts...

the ones where you feel like posting but you don't know why? yeah, that's what this is.

nothing much, or nothing much interesting anyway, has being going on in my life recently...i finally get to go to q222 tonight and i'm rather excited about that! i'm definitely looking forward to meeting new people and of course spending time with old people. not literally old but you know what i mean.

have you ever noticed how we use 'up' and 'down' interchangeably? slow up and slow down mean the same thing. some of us use 'down there' and some of us use up, but most of the time we really just mean somewhere other than our current position. there's lots more examples that i thought of but of course i forgot them as soon as i started writing this....

i honestly couldn't live without my music. music is just amazing. it can make you sad when you're happy and happy when you're sad, and besides, it's just enjoyable to play and listen to. my instruments and my mp3 player are some of the blessings i'm most thankful for.

i'm pretty sure all of you think the same thing about this past year. it's gone by so fast and it's still flying. i think i've had a lot more going on this year than usual. i've met new people, started my second movie, and so many other things. what do you think made your year go by so fast?

well anyway i think that's about all for now, folks. it's great to be able to get this all out, especially if you have a lot of people reading it.
thanks for reading, guys and girls.
