I wrote this post while I was sitting in a room of my friends, with my earbuds in, blocking the world out. I was listening to music on high volume, with my huge laptop, typing this. I had no idea of what I was going to write about until I saw something on the whiteboard. (we’re in a classroom)
It was a drawing of Larry the Cucumber from VeggieTales.
Image result for larry the cucumber from veggietalesFor those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a kid’s show with talking vegetables.
Totally a homeschooler thing to draw on a whiteboard, am I right?
The other thing was pi, written with a whole lot of digits. I don’t remember if pi goes on for infinity or if it’s just really, really, long, but this was a lot of digits. We started talking about homeschooler stuff, like VeggieTales and how we still sing the songs without shame, and the conflict between Math-U-See and Saxon. I realized, my friends, that I am a nerd.
Not as though I didn’t know this already, no. I knew I was a nerd, and I take pride in that fact. People try to insult me by calling me a nerd, geek, or weird, but I take pride in every one of those things.
Nerd and geek are both something that means someone very smart who obsesses over something, but weird is different altogether.
From a Christian perspective, here is what weird means.

Weird is pretty much the opposite of normal, and when God created us without sin, we were perfect to him. People say to be normal, you have to follow all the rules, live the stereotype life. But really, we were normal when we were sinless, and if nobody is without sin, that means nobody is normal. That means everybody is weird. That is my conclusion and my nerd session for the day. I will go be weird now. If you agree with my philosophy, drop a comment below and tell me so! I have rhymed, geek session for the day is over. Everyone, go live your lives and be weird!!

Memes, Music, and Some Other 'M' Word That Makes a Catchy Title

I have reached the number of six followers!!!!! Victory! To celebrate, I will show ya'll my favorite memes and tell you about some random things. Also, it's mostly just a thing with me not knowing what else to post about... If you haven't followed yet, please do! Join us! Don't be shy!
And that is why you only have six followers.

Bwa ha ha ha!
Except that I don't have 5k followers. Just six.
But whatever.
Some help. Thanks a lot, Tuffnut and Ruffnut, really! I couldn't have done it without your help!

That's Ruffnut and Tuffnut from How To Train Your Dragon, if you didn't know.

So I just started High School, and I'm taking Physical Science, and I just learned about atoms last week! And I looked up atom memes for like no reason at all, and found:

I didn't know how to explain this until now.

I started listening to Royal Tailor recently. They were a really cool Christian band, but they broke up and Tauren Wells, the lead singer, is now doing his own thing. And I'm seeing him in concert with Skillet, Britt Nicole, Guavi, and Colton Dixon in October! So listen to Ready Set Go and Make a Move by Royal Tailor. If you don't love them, you're crazy. But crazy is good, so live on.

Last meme.
I seriously laughed so hard when I saw this, my face was turning red. I guess I looked like I was having a seizure or something, because my sister asked me if I was okay.

So, wrapping this up. I wish I could have come up with a better title, but I'm just not good with that. 
Thank you so much for following me (if you did) and if you didn't, please do! Also, leave me suggestions for blog posts in the comments. I really need it.

I can draw!!!!!

I just discovered yesterday that I can actually draw! I was watching Frozen for like the thirtieth time, and afterward, I saw a picture that someone drew of Elsa, and I was like, I can totally do that! But I ended up drawing Anna instead. Here is a picture!

The lighting was a bit weird in the picture, unfortunately. But what do you think?

Sid Richardson Scout Ranch-(aka my extremely humid home for a week)

Finally, and with no less then 243 bug bites and and just a little bit of sanity left in me, I have returned from Sid Richardson Scout Ranch, where I went to summer camp. My day's schedule.
6:00-Wake up
6:30-6:45-Walk to Sioux 1 campsite
6:45-7:00-Music practice
7:30-7:45-Walk an eighth mile to dining hall where I wait five minutes to get in
7:45-8:15-Eat breakfast and clean up hall
8:15-8:30-Catch a shuttle and drive a mile to the climbing wall
8:30-10:15-Climbing class
10:15-10:30-Shuttle back to main camp, walk to office for next class
10:30-11:15-Kitchen Scientist class
11:15-11:30-Walk to Leatherworking
11:30-12:15-Leatherworking class in Sioux 1 campsite
12:15-12:40-Walk to dining hall
12:40-1:10-Eat Lunch and clean up hall
1:10-1:30-Walk to Navaho campsite
1:30-3:15-Search and Rescue class
3:15-3:30-Walk to Cherokee campsite
3:30-4:15-Zoology class
4:15-4:30-Walk to Sioux 3
4:30-5:15-Geology class
5:15-5:30-Walk to Sioux 1 campsite
5:30-5:40-Music practice
6:00-6:15-Walk to dining hall
6:20-7:00-Eat Dinner and clean up hall
7:00-10:00-Assorted evening activities
10:00-5:59-Glorious sleep

So that was my basic schedule, and I am still sleeping late and taking naps in the middle of the day. Added on to that, I'm sick now. My throat feels like somebody is dragging nails down the inside of it. The only thing that makes it feel better is eating chocolate, and I'm not sure if that was a coincidence or not. There was like no chocolate at camp.
But now that I am home and in one piece, I decided I should probably blog about something, so I decided on talking about camp. The staff were all hilarious, especially this one guy who worked in the med hut. His humor was slightly irritating at first, but one time my sister and I showed up so we could get anti-itch cream for our bug bites, and he had her playing Operation while I sat watching and trying not to laugh.
Also, one night, I saw a black bear cub. It was really hot in the tent so I just sat outside it for a little while, looking at stars in such. Then I heard a rustling noise and looked over to my right and saw this little cub. It was kind of cute until I heard a splashing noise down at the lake, which was just a short ways away. Very loud splashing, and a deep, throaty grunting noise. Enter mama bear. I didn't stick around too long.
I must go, my friends, and listen to enough music to make up for a week of singing in my head.

Song Recommendations

So sorry I haven't posted recently. Actually, as it is, I'm not sure what I should post about, so I'm going with song recommendations!!!!!

Just about a month ago, I got tired of the Christian artists I normally listen to, like Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey, Britt Nicole, or Francesca Battistelli. I've been trying to get into some more secular music, and my favorite artist so far is Rachel Platten.

The first song of hers I heard was Fight Song, and my favorite is Lone Ranger. As I am writing this post I am playing Lone Ranger over and over again through my headphones. I can't stop listening to it, and I know a song is good when I can listen to it ten times in a row right before I go to sleep.

I also like Imagine Dragons. I heard Radioactive first, but my favorite is Demons. Another favorite is Demi Lovato, and this kind of makes me sound like a little kid, but I love her rendition of Let it Go from Frozen. I totally love that song, but everyone else seems to dislike it.

But anyway, if you haven't already, listen to Lone Ranger and Demons.

Really excited for this next part...

I'm going to summer camp in a week! It will be great to get away from everything and come back sore, tired, and achy. Well, the last part there isn't that great.

At said camp, I am doing an overnight canoeing trip! We canoe out to an island and camp for the night, then canoe back in the morning. I think that will be my favorite part, but I can't wait for the campfire either. At the end of the week every year, there is a huge campfire, and some girls do skits, awards are handed out, and basically, we cry because we're not going to see the people around us for like, another year, but it's really great. My first year, the camp's song that year was so amazing we played it seven times.

But anyway, it is already ten, so I'm going to have to go. I will try to post more often! Please comment and follow!

I Don't Know What to Call This Post... sorry

I am so happy! In the words of Elena from A Homeschool Nerd's Tale, my brain is doing dances inside my head because my body doesn't know how!
Why am I happy?
Because school's out!
Well, it's not really out, because I haven't finished math yet...
But close enough.
I didn't know what I was going to write about when I opened this, so I just started writing about the first thing I saw, which was my huge stack of library books.

Book one: This book has such a corny name that I can't even believe it.
The Apple Tart of Hope.
I mean, seriously?
So I haven't finished yet, but here's a summary. (Out of the book cover)

Fourteen-year-old Oscar Dunleavy is missing and presumed dead. His bike was found at sea, out past the end of the pier, and everyone in town seems to have accepted this as a teenage tragedy. But Oscar's best friend, Meg, knows they're wrong. Oscar is an optimistic and kind boy who bakes the world's best apple tarts; he would never kill himself, and Meg is going to prove it. Through interwoven narratives, the reader learns what really happened to Oscar. Meg must confront the painful truth of Oscar's past six months, along with the possibility that he might really be gone.

I'm on the third chapter now, and it is good so far. Do not be fooled by the corny name, the writing is actually pretty good. The author is Sarah Moore Fitzgerald.

Book two:
A Hundred Hours of Night by Anna Woltz.
I totally love this book so far, but I was disappointed by the profanity. I'm on chapter 28 out of 45.
Summary: (Out of the book cover)

When Emilia De Wit ran away to New York City, she planned everything to a T. Plane ticket, purchased. Fabulous apartment, rented online. Subway map, printed and highlighted. This was no ordinary trip- this was Emilia's declaration of independence. Her chance to escape the life her parents were ruining. To get away from the horrible scandal that had rocked Amsterdam, the scandal that was all her dad's fault. To see if her mom, the glamorous, world-famous artist, would even notice.
New York steals Emilia's heart at first sight- even though absolutely nothing goes to plan. She didn't plan to end up homeless on a stranger's doorstep. She didn't plan to make friends with cute but prickly Seth; his precocious little sister, Abby; and model-hot next-door neighbor Jim. And she could never have known that Hurricane Sandy would be barreling up the coast, heading straight for the city. All she wanted was to get away from her parents, her problems, her life, at least for a little while... but when the storm hits and the power goes out, Emilia feels farther from home than she could have imagined.

So read these books if you're interested. I actually have a lot more sitting in the stack.... but I don't want to bore you.
I don't know what anyone would comment about on this post, but you can still comment if you want to!
