I just got a Kindle!

I just got back from the cruise about 1 hour ago. For those of you who don't know, my grandparents 50th anniversary was this year, and to celebrate they took us all on a cruise to the Bahamas. We were on the ship Carnival Pride. It was awesome!!!!!

There was a teen club called O2. It was for teens 15-17 years old. It was fun, even if the music wasn't all that great. We did fun stuff like photography scavenger hunts, and 'Dress the Contestant'. That was especially hilarious. There were teams of 4 and we each got a list of stuff we needed to dress the team captain in. I was the team captain for our team. I was with my sis, cousin, and this other guy named Chris. I don't remember everything we had to get, but here is what I do remember -
~Left sneaker
~Right flip-flop
~mis-matching socks
~Checkered Shirt
~hair tie
~another hair accesory
~red lipstick
~red nail polish
~purple eyeshadow
~beauty spot

On second thought, I do remember everything! We had 20 minutes to go down 10 floors to our cabins, get all the stuff we needed, put it all on, then get back up to the 10 floor where the club was. Our team and another team tied! The other team had one more thing that we didn't have time to get, but Wally (he's the leader of O2) liked the way I put mine together, so we both won! It was pretty awesome, and I looked pretty ridiculous!

I regret that I will not be able to write every single thing that was awesome, (as that would be one long blog post,) But I will try and highlight some of the more awesome stuff. (This next thing doesn't sound likes it's awesome, but read it through). So on Friday I wasn't feeling well. I also hadn't gotten much sleep the night before (not getting back to your cabin till 1:30 a.m. could slightly inhibit on your sleeping schedule.) So I was exhausted. I woke up Saturday, and realized every body else had left. I looked at my watch. 1:35 p.m I slept till 1:35!!!!!!! It was awesome!!!!

I also really really liked the room service. Our steward would come in the morning to make our bed, and then in the evening to turn down the bed, make a towel animal, and leave a couple of chocolates!! So that was pretty fun!

There was also 24/7 soft serve ice cream!! And 24/7 pizza!

We stopped at three ports on the cruise. At each port we could do one shore excursion. However, at the first stop, which was Grand Turk, I really wanted to do two things, so I didn't do anything at the third port. So at Grand Turk I went horseback riding. We rode for a little under an hour, then in groups of 6 we rode the horses into the water about 3 or 4 feet deep, and we galloped. It was awesome!!! The other excursion I did that day was power snorkeling. It was pretty cool! We had these little thingys with propellers that pulled us along. I don't really know how else to explain them!

The second stop was at Half Moon Cay, which is a privately owed island by the Carnival Cruise lines. I really wanted to go jet-skiing, but I was to young. So instead I went parasailing!! It was awesome! I was about 600 ft. up in the air!! I could see the bottom of the ocean from 600 feet up in the air, that's how clear it was!

Freeport was the last stop. I actually didn't get off the boat, because I wasn't doing a shore excursion, it was 5 dollars each way to get a taxi to take you to the beach, and all I would have done was lay out in the sun and get even more sunburn. So I opted to stay on board and hang out.

There was so much more cool stuff, but I really don't want to make this post any longer!

Tuck Everlasting

I dislike the ending of the movie very much.
I like the rest of the movie, just not the ending.

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

So. It's been a while. More than a week. So I shall give you a rundown of what happened last week. Monday, after we got home, we went to a summer solstice party. That was a lot of fun! Then Tuesday night, I had TNMSGT (Tuesday Night Mime Small Group Thingy). Wednesday was haging around the house, watching Veggie Tales! Thursday was small group planning with Katie, then LIT meeting (yes, I really do know how to make jello!). Then I had music practice. Friday was another music practice, working on the Irish Dance for CYMA with Kristina, then mime. Saturday we (Our Church music group) went up to Altoona P.A. and we played at a mass in a baseball field. It was fun, except for the fact that it was very very hot. We got back at 11:30. Then Sunday, we (the same church group) played at Mass at our church. Then my mom and I went to a friends graduation, and from there we went to my grandparents house. We spent the night, and then on Monday it was decided that I would stay up at my grandparents so I could go birthday shopping. (my grandmother takes us clothes shopping for our birthdays). So that is where I am now, and where I will be until Thursday morning.

Thats all for now!
