Party For One, Please?

(Sweater : Forever 21, Mustard Skirt: Forever 21. Awkward Legs: oh yeah, those are mine.)

Today I learned how to do 2 new things : Set up a tripod, and shoot a 22' Rifle. Completely different things right? Both were equally awesome.
Seeing as it's New Year's Eve, I guess I could list a few things that I plan to do in 2012.
2. Finally get my license
3. Be faithful to blogging
4. Participate in more charitable functions
5. Help my parents more around the house.
What are your "resolutions"

Now, I'm not big on partying for New Years, but this year I did a silly little something to get in the spirit of new beginnings.

I will always find an excuse for a party hat. Even if I'm chillen by myself. (:

Happy New Year, bloggers!

New Year, New Me.

So, as always, I apologize for never ever blogging when I say I will. BUT, this year I have a whole new motive. 

Her name is Bren. Ain't she a beaut?
You will be seeing a lot more of her, and hopefully a lot more of me in the new year. I'm quite quite excited (: 

Thanks for believing in my blog!

Sweater Weather = Better Weather

So this autumn weather is faaaantastic. I'll just use it as an excuse for not blogging in ages (;
This past weekend my cousin Morgan and I went to the cutest little pumpkin patch for her Junior pictures. It had horse rides, hay rides, and of course, tons o' pumpkins! I suggest going to a pumpkin patch to just about anyone, it's so much fun, especially if you bring friends and family! Besides going to the patch, we also ventured to seriously, the prettiest neighborhood I've ever visitied. It had it's own paved trial (and I'm talking mile long) that followed the pond, and lead to a beautiful little gazebo! So cute.

It's A Wonderful Life

These pictures are from awhile ago, but I don't remember if I blogged about them or not and I was faaaar too lazy to search.
My cousin Morgan and I went to the park and ventured into a lone field ( well, probably owned by someone ) and took some peeectures.
She is leaving for Hawaii tomorrow at 4am, and won't be back for 2 whole weeks. I might die without her. :l
On the bright side, I am leaving for Sunset Beach, NC on Tuesday. Hoorah for vacation!


I was featured in KenzieFaith's blog today! Suuuuper honored (: Check it out!

Wishlist (:

So, the common question that I've been asked recently is "what do you want for your birthday?" I honestly never think about answering them, so I guess I'll do so in a blog. First up to bat, I would killlll for these lovely Steve Madden Boots. I spotted them at Nordstroms the other day, and can't stop thinking about them! Besides those boots though, there are another pair that are equally amazing. Yes, they're from the same maker, but hey, I love Steve Madden.
My current sunglasses are all scratched up :( So these would have to suffice :)
Uhm, basically anything from Forever21 would be woooonderful.
Lastly, this beauuutiful canvas bag from There are only 2 left though, which means I probably won't be able to get it :( Oh well.

And I'll Smile Inside

To know that you're completely mine.

That is a lyric from The Wedding Song by Angus and Julia Stone. True, it is a cover. But it is a darn good one at that! Honestly, I want this to be my "first dance" song. Is that cliche? Oh well.
Angus and Julia do more than covers, but they also do an impeccable version of "You're The One That I Want" from Grease!
Basically I posted this just to share that music with someone. I hope you find it as enjoyable as I do!
Comment and tell me how you like it, if you have similar artists, or anything you think about music. I like to be introduced to different things.


You're Gonna Miss This

Blogger's picture quality gives these pictures no justice to what Kenzie Faith can do with a camera. 
Anyways, these are my senior pictures for the Class of 2012! Honestly, I cannot even fathom how old I truly am. My life just keeps speeding by, and to be honest, sometimes I feel like I can't keep up! Nevertheless, I am completely stoked to be finishing high school. I will miss it though. The hallways, the books, the teachers, the crummy cafeteria food, the smoldering hot football games, our Nuttie section, missing the bus, the smell of the band room, theatre, and all my friends. I know I like to let myself think that all my high school friends will last with me forever, but now I know that isn't the case. I do hope I stay in touch with all of them though. They are truly great people. 

Northwest Cabarrus High School, Class of 2012; It's our time to shine.

Leave It To Me

To not know how to use a Mac computer.
I was trying to save pictures from a facebook album onto the computer, but it saves the entire page and not just the picture! Talk about annoying. :(
I was going to use those pictures for this blog post, but since I have none, I guess I will just ask you..

Puhllleeaasseeee, if anyone knows anything about Macs; HELP.

I am a desperate Kelsey.

Oh, I Am Breaking Down

Thought of the Day:
When I lose a friend or someone dear to me, not necessarily through death, I kinda miss the bond we shared. I mean, who wouldn't miss that comfortable feeling with a person? Where we could talk for hours about everything and anything, not having a problem at all with the silence in the middle. Can't forget all the ridiculous stuff we did. Stupid or not, everything was just so fun. Endless nights, real talks, the "remember whens" I remember it all. And it's funny what life does, how it could just give you things and take it away so soon. I really can't get it into my head that you grow distant from the people, and that good things come to an end sooner or later. I want to find that one person that will forever stay with me, just for comfort purposes. To know that I can trust them with anything and everything, that they'll never abandoned me. Along the way though,  I have learned one thing about life, it goes on. You just gotta pick yourself up, and learn to keep up.

That's been on my mind recently. Ponder it for awhile, and tell me what you think/how you feel about similar situations. (:

Someday, I'm Gonna Steal Your Heart Away

Food for thought :
What if love isn't a yes-or-no question? It's not either you're in love or you're not. I mean, aren't there different levels? And maybe these things, like words and expectations and whatever, don't go on top of the love. Maybe it's like a map and they all have their own place. And then when you see, you see it from the sky.

That is my "wisdom" for the day. I don't really know why, but I woke up thinking about it this morning er...afternoon, and decided to blog about it.
Today is going to be a day filled with glorious nothingness. And I'm not even being sarcastic. I have been doing So.Much.Stuff for the past month, and I am so thankful to have nothing on my agenda all week long. Plans for me consist of :
1. Sleeping.
2. Eating.
3. Playing with my pets.
4. Laying on the hammock.
5. Tanning.
6. More eating.
7. Music.
8. Piano.
9. Reading.
10. More Sleeping.
I will vicariously live through myself for the next week, and it will be wonderful.

Have a blissful, lazy day bloggers.

FOR HIS GLORY- Albion Camp 2011

From the start of this entire trip, these girls have been wonderful. I rode with Rebekah (the middle one) in the van to Indiana. We clicked withing the first 5 minutes. If you couldn't tell, they are fraternal twins. TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE (; Both of them are very, very dear to me and were the biggest contributing factor to me having the most amazing time at camp. I love them with all my heart :D

This youth group right here, are amazing individuals. All of them aren't pictured though :( They accepted me into their "family" just like I'd always been there. The boy in the yellow shirt (Rhett) and the boy in the red, (Richard) BOTH received the Holy Ghost at camp. I was so happy for them!
Speaking of services, God moved so much in every service! Brother Smith, Bow, and Archer each delivered valuable words of God to me each service.
My favorite messages were titled "The Great Escape" , peached by Brother Bow; and "Delilah Doesn't Love You", preached by Brother Kevin Archer. 
The Great Escape was talking about being bound by something for so long. There's always that one little thing that the devil binds you with, keeping you from breaking free at the altar. I let go of the past that night, and I am NEVER looking back.
Delilah Doesn't Love You was talking about the story in the bible of Sampson & Delilah. In a short recap, Sampson was a Hebrew who had long hair which was his strength, and to put it in simple terms..loved the ladies. Delilah was a beautiful woman of another denomination, who Sampson fell for. Her people ordered her to find out Sampson's weakness by convincing him that she loved him. Sampson eventually revealed to Delilah that if he were to be shaven, all his strength would be gone. She waited for Sampson to fall asleep, and then ordered her people in to shave him, taking away God's gift of strength to him.
The lesson in this was that there will be one person or more in your life that you believe you are madly in love with. But the truth is..that person is Delilah, and Delilah doesn't love you. In the bible it said "Sampson loved her" but never did it once say "Delilah loved him." I cried that morning at the altar, and it was glorious.

I made so many wonderful new friends at this camp, everyone was so genuine and nice. I really cannot wait to return!
Dicing onions in the kitchen, like champs.

Proud of our girls on the front row in church! (:

Look at that leetle baby face (:

Makin' our first friend at camp !         (Holly) ^


Hope this wasn't a boring post!

& I'm off!


Yeah, I know, Indiana isn't the greatest tourist destination. But it's out of Concord, which is all I ask! It is a 14 hour drive though, WOMP.

 I'm going to a church camp with my sister's youth group for a week; beginning Sunday, and ending next Saturday. I am really stoked, actually. I will probably be nervous when I get there though. The last time I went to this church camp, I was 6 years not many people know me. Oh well, I hope to make plenty of friends!

Gathering outfits for this camp was a tiresome task, let me tell you. Over 4 hours of changing my mind, getting annoyed, throwing clothes all over my room, and running up an down the stairs to resurrect old outfits. Finally though, I am packed. I would call myself a bit of a over-packer...considering I have a separate suitcase for shoes, clothes, and hair amenities. And I don't mean little duffle bags either. I mean full on, rolling suitcases. What can I say though, I like being prepared!

A severe downer of this trip is that I have NO INTERNET CONNECTION. Therefore, I cannot blog about my experiences until I return! Hopefully I will have lots of photo ops. and great stories to share with you all! If you have the slightest clue as to what to do for fun in Indiana, please don't be shy about telling me.

Done .

I've come to the conclusion that when all your "friends" begin to drop like flies, the only real people you can count on are yourself, and God. I am done with standing up for people all the time, and not having them stand up for me. I am done with people abusing my kindness to them, and just thinking that since I am there for them all the time, they can dispose of me whenever the crap they want to. I am a person. I am not recylable. Once you throw me out of your life, I won't be coming back. I used to forgive people at the drop of a hat, but not anymore. I've made the mistake of caring too much for people that will most likely leave my life within the next year or so. To whomever has hurt me, abandoned me, or done me wrong :  When you are standing alone, without anyone to confide in or rely on, don't look to me. You've used me for the last time.

A New Day, A New Dawn.

Summer has been such a blast this year. The only thing missing is a vacation to the beach! This weekend I went over to my cousin Morgan's house for some cousin-bonding. We went on a picnic, saw Kung Fu Panda 2, and took some beast pictures in a feild. Tell me what you think, and how your summer is going!

Beautiful Soul

Why yes, I still listen to old Jesse McCartney music.

The first week of summer vaca has been the absolute best. I have had so many laughs, and the stress of school is completely gone. Thank goodness. Friday evening I went to a local band's concert, By Summer's End. They are REALLY good, so you should go look them up on Facebook(: Afterwards I ventured with my friends in the band and some others to Cookout. We had a great time! Later I was dropped off at my friend Mogan's house around 12iah. We seriously had a blast. Sneaking out to go bust our friend out of her house at 1:30am, throwing rocks at her window, watching Jenna Marbles videos on youtube for hours, just having best friend talks until 4:30am, not caring that we had to wake up in less than 4 hours. We went to Northwest's graduation at 9am Saturday morning seeing all of our close friends graduate, really making us think about how OLD we are getting. Seriosuly, I cannot believe that I am a senior already, and that I will be walking in graduation in less than a year now! How scary, how exciting, how weird. Later after graduation was over, we ventured back to her house for a little photo shoot, and watched Monsters Inc. like true champs. I left her house in the greatest mood. Then, I went to my sister's house for awhile, where we had a giant thunderstorm. I love summer showers, but this storm was scary!
When I got home, I was just chilling in my room, when my best friend Kelsi called me up asking if I wanted to go eat with her. She picked me up around 8:30 and we headed to Chick-Fil-A. Yum! After eating, we rented The King's Speech from Redbox, but never got a chance to watch it! Darn. She stayed at my house that night and we played The Game of Life, listened to awesome music, had girl talk, and stayed up until 3:30am. We then woke up for church and had our youth fundraiser afterwards for youth camps. It was a success and we raised over $400! We went back to her house with her sister, and Trey. Just hanging out and having a good ole time. Went back to church that night, and then ventured to Ihop with Kenzie, Kelsi, Morgan, and Trey. Getting there was the worst experience ever. Seriously, me and morgan had made SO MANY U-TURNS. Finally we arrived, and I bought the greatest pancakes ever. Cinna-stack pancakes. They're really sweet so I couldn't finish them all, but they were SO GOOD. I finally got back home around 11 and knocked out. I just woke up around 2:30. Later tonight, I am headed to my sisters so I can get my permit tomorrow. FINALLY. Wednesday-Saturday I will be at my cousin Morgan's, but that's going to be a another blog! I love summer, end. of. story.

Sorry for the long post!

Dark Was The Night

If you've haven't listened to that album, then you are missing out. Here's one of the lovely songs from it. If you purchase a copy, the money is donated to a research foundation looking to cure aids. Good music, for a good cause.

This weekend has been a blast. Thursday, I went with my father to one of his work dinner's. It was a nice experience. Just having daddy-daughter dates are fun. This is what I wore.
Dress: Urban Outfitters
Messenger Bag: Target
White (bleach out :/ ) sandles: UO
I know, I know. This picture quality is horrible, but dad hates taking tons of pictures so I had to work with what I had.

Friday, I got out of school at 12:45 since it's an exam day. My sister came and picked me up and we headed to TJ.Maxx. I bought a nice little over-sized tee. I loooove it. I'll have to find a cute skirt to pair it with before I post it though.

Saturday morning I had to wake up for my SAT. Womp. It was so hard. It literally made me feel like the dumbest person alive. Oh well, I can always take it again.
After that, my wonderful friend Kelsi came and picked me up and we headed to Caitlyn's for her birthday party! We just went swimming and had a blast. I then went back to Caitlyn's house until my madre came and picked me up. I need a license so I don't have to depend on others so much! Jeez Louise.

Finally, today is Sunday. Church has been just amazing today. I really have felt the spirit of God move all day. So many great things have been happening and I love it. On top of that, I got a brand new pair of shoes! Their KensieGirl sandles. But they have a woven wedge heal. Super cute. I'm wearing them tonight for church, so hopefully I can get a decent picture to post!

Xoxo, Kelsey.

Summer Nights

Today has been a relatively awesome day. Minus my entire Chemistry exam, then again those are never fun.

It feels like summer, since school lets out at 12:45 today and tomorrow. I can just come home, eat, and tan. All I need in my life right now. I do wish I had a pool, but hey, the water hose will work just fine for now.
I already have plans this weekend, whoopi. Friday after school, I'm going with my sister for awhile to hang out at her house. Saturday at 7:45am, I have my glorious SAT at Hickory Ridge high school. I'm going to be honest, I'm pretty nervous. But at 12:30 when it's over, I'm being picked up and will be heading for Caitlyn's house for her birthday partyyy! It's just us and a few girls from school, hanging by the pool, celebrating her 17th. I think it'll be a grand ole time. Then that night, I'm pretty sure I'm just staying at Caitlyn's until church Sunday. So all in all, pretty chill weekend.

Summer is in less than 5 days. I cannot believe it, but can't explain to you how READY I am for summer. Just relaxing for awhile, taking a breather. Hitting up the beach here and there, not stressing over stupid school drama and homework. Ah yes, summer 2011 will be the best so far.

"I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." - Audrey Hepburn.

These Times Are Hard, And They're Making Us Crazy

I've never personally came out and blogged about my breakup, but it's just been too much lately. If it bugs you or you think it's dumb that I'm writing about it, then don't read. Problem solved.

 Does everyone think it's easy breaking up with someone? That it doesn't hurt the one who breaks up with the other person, just as bad or maybe even worse? It shouldn't make me feel this way. I did it for myself. I just felt like I needed to be alone for awhile, that's ALL. But for some reason, people think that there is something behind that story. I cannot stress how much, I JUST WANTED TO BE BY MYSELF. I don't know why it's that hard for people to understand. But because they don't, they've decided to make my life at school as miserable in every way. I just wish things could blow over. We've been broken up for awhile now, and it just shouldn't be like this. Now, it feels like everything is just going wrong. I'm losing the friends who I thought would stay with me through this whole thing. The worst part is, when I talk to my mom or dad about it, they don't even take my side. They blame it on "being tired" or "I told you not to do that 24 hour play, it wore you out" or my personal favorite "if there's nothing to blame you for, then why are you getting so upset?" Yep, love love love the positive energy at the humble abode.

After our 24 hour play project at school, I thought everything was great. Me and Dylan were talking again, just like normal friends. Everything in the air felt right for once in ages. Then I got home. There was a message waiting for me that said "I don't know what your problem is but please refrain from ever talking to me again." Yeah, I was a bit confused. Needless to go into details, things got heated and I've been crying all weekend. Everything is seriously turning against me.

People are just acting so freaking weird lately, and I don't know what to do. I've decided to shut down for the next week or so. No talking to anyone unless necessary, or they're one of the few people I still trust. I wish things didn't have to be this complicated. It's the last full week of my junior year; and for my senior friends, of high school. It should be a happy, joyous time, not a crappy drama filled poopfest. It probably sounds like I'm throwing myself a pity party, but I'm not trying to. I know that I've screwed up in the past week too, trust me. There are things I regret, but when other people go through stuff like this do I give them crap? No. So why should they act so differently with me? People just really confuse me. How can we go from being fine and dandy, to falling apart at the seems?

I just feel like giving up. Throwing in the towel. I know that things will get better, and that at the end of the road everything will make sense. But my God, the journey there SUCKS.

Maybe in due time, summer will come; and wipe away every tear, every hurt, and every screw up. It will come and make everything seem perfect and at peace again. Just a few more days, and I will be there.

I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. I can do this.
I think.

If It Means A Lot To You

A lot is on my mind tonight. I know, I know; It's 11pm and I have to wake up at 6am for school tomorrow. Not to mention I'm partaking in a 24 hour play from 7pm tomorrow - 7pm Saturday. No sleep. At My school. Writing, directing, and putting on a play in 24 hours. But what can I say, when the time calls, I must blog.
I hate it when there's something in your life that you want SO BADLY, and no matter what you do, can't have. This makes me sound greedy, but it's not an object that I am speaking of. Just people/ideals/goals. All that jazz. Money can't buy these things. Have you ever experienced when you walk into an environment that you used to be so comfortable in, and then that feeling just vanishes? Yeah, welcome to the past 3 weeks of my life. I try to be the same person, but I think people just see me differently now. Maybe it's a good thing though. Maybe they're just not meant to be as close to me as I thought they were. But it just hurts ya know? Jeez, I don't knowwww.
Have you ever had it when there's something so perfect in your life, something that makes you feel happy and just improves your day by 110%, and then have it wisked away right infront of your face? That's another thing that happens to me. I find comfort in something, and then realize that I'm not really good enough for it. That it's probably only temporary. It honestly is ridiculous. I've been putting up with it lately, and I just can't let myself leave it behind. Something tells me to hold on to it, but I'm scared. Scared to be hurt, abandoned, lonesome. That's one of my biggest fears; being alone. I know, I'll always have my friends, whatever boy desides to show up in my life, and all that, but this is a different type of lonely. A lonliness that can never be fulfilled by any person/thing. When you're just shut off from everything good in the world; or so it seems. Don't get me wrong, I am not in this situation right now, but if I were to be in the future, I would just shut down.
I wish I could shut down sometimes. From stress. It's toppling over right now, and my mind can't handle it. Life is moving too too fast for my likings. Junior year is basically over, minus exams. I have to start looking into colleges. I have no clue about what I even want to wear to school tomorrow, nevertheless what I want to do for the REST OF MY LIFE. I used to be certain that I wanted to study in nursing, but now, I'm not so sure. I love theatre. Wait, scratch that; I ADORE theatre. I've come to the realization that it very well may be a contender for what I want to do with my career. Maybe become a theatre teacher? I don't know though. I love partaking in theatre, but could I really have enough creativity to major in it? I would be responsible for the students' imagination, and if you don't know already, that's a lot of pressure. I want their experiences in the theatre to be just as great as mine are now. If I were to fail them, I don't know what I would do.
I think it'd be amazing to perform in theatre for a living, but then again, what if I'm not good enough? I guess I just have low self-esteem. But I hate saying that because I feel like I'm throwing myself a pity party. So now I will cease with this mushy gushy, "woe is me" crap. Unless of course, I think of something else in the time that I am blogging.
I have had a ton going on lately. Every weekend I am booked. Oh well, I like being busy. It may be stressful at times, but I feel like I'm important when I do things outside of home and stuff. Plus, being home is no walk through the daisies anyway.
This weekend I have the 24 hour play. Next weekend I have my SAT, and Caitlyn's birthday party. The weekend after that I have By Summer's End concert, graduation to see my seniors, and a sleepover with Morgan. Then the two weeks of summer will be spent with Mrs.Kelly, for I am a camp counselor for her Children's Theatre Camp. I'm not that enthused about it, but hey I get to rack up $200 from it. Cha-chinggg.
I cannot believe school is already over. It's so scary that next year I'll be a senior. I'm going to miss high school so much. I can barely think about all my senior friends graduation this year, I'm just going to bawl like a baby at graduation. I love them all so much, and I know that they probably won't stay in my life forever. But at this very moment, I wish they could. Growing up sucks. If I could just stop when I got to like 18, that'd be grand.
Well, it is now 11:40, which is earlier than I expected to get done with blogging. Maybe I'll mess around with my backround or something, it's boring to me now. I know this is a complete turn around blog from last time, but hey, my circumstances and thoughts change daily. Hope you enjoyed and read all of this massive blog!

Change Is Hard.

Hi bloggers!
I once again apologize for not blogging in ages. It seems that's how I start every new post nowadays. I need to change that!
Recently I have been thinking about happiness. What it means to be happy and all that jazz. Lately I've been having awful days and usually they get me down. I came upon an epiphany though. You have to look at all the positive things you have in life. I really have been pesimistic lately, and I hate myself for that. But honestly, I have it too good to even begin to complain. So what? People are rude, and they're going to anger you at times, but getting you upset is their goal. If you show them how unaffected by it you are, they'll eventually just stop. "Kill Them With Kindness" is what I always tell myself. I hate that I even want to make people be rude to me, but what can I do about it? It's their own problem and one of these days they will reap what the sew. From now on, I am just going to look at every great thing I have in my life. God, my true friends, my family, my house, my ability to live comfortably, my youth group, not being depressed, not having a broken family, being able to just wake up every morning. These are just a small amount of things that get my by everyday. Even the simple things; summer's air, lounging around the house without a care in the world, piano, music, theatre, laughter, beautiful days, walking in my yard, photography, etc. You see my point here? A hint of advice for those feeling depressed, sad, or lonely. Life. Moves. On. One day, you will look back on your current situation and think "Wow, I survived that" and you'll smile.

Though the sorrow may last for a night, joy come in the morning.

All Dressed Up & Such

I have been sick since Wednesday. Bleh. Literally, Friday was the first time I had gotten out of bed and that was for one reason..prom. I cannot believe I would get sick the week of prom! Oh wait..yes I can. My luck stinks.
Anyways, I had a great time. When we arrived at the Embassy Suites, where it was being held, we only started to dance when the fire alarm went off and yes, we had to evacuate the building for 15 minutes. It was awful, but the fire was put out and all was well. Shortly after we returned inside, the DJ, formally known as Mrs. Mehl's boyfriend, called out over the congregation "Who all loves Mrs.Meh'l?!" so we all cheer as he says "that's awesome, because I do too.." and got down on one knee! It was so super cute. I have never witnessed a proposal, it was magical. Other than that, nothing really happened. There was a lot of dancing. A LOT of dancing. My legs are still hurting. Luckily my illness went away long enough for me to enjoy prom. But boy, did I sleep well that night. I am still sick and it's Sunday. Darn you virus! Well, this is a short blog, but dad just put up the hammock and a nap is awaiting me.  Until next week bloggers!
oh & p.s: Blogger has refused me the right upload more prom pictures tonight, so you shall see more this week hopefully!

you're stiches are all out, but your scars are healing wrong

There's been a lot on my mind lately. Not necessarily bad things, just stressful things. School is ending in 4 weeks, which means buckling down for exams in a week or so. Prom is FRIDAY. I cannot believe how quickly it has come up. Tomorrow I am finally picking up my dress, then Wednesday I am going to get my nails done, Thursday I am going to get last minute items, and Friday I'm leaving school at 11 to start assembling things. Jeez, goodbye week! I don't even get a break after that because I have to babysit on Saturday, go to church on Sunday, and make posters for colorguard tryouts.
That's a whole 'nother ball park-guard. I was not expecting tryouts to be THIS MONDAY. eek. I haven't picked up a flag or rifle in ages, never the less prepared an audition! I am so super stoked for guard though. Marching Band is my life and seriously cannot wait to get back into it.
Another thing to deal with is your average teenage drama. Like really, I don't understand why, in EVERY circumstance, something has to be wrong or a situation. It just annoys me. Especially when people older than me are starting it. Way to be leaders guys, just way to go.
I cannot wait for summer. Seriously, it will be amazing. The only downfall is all of my senior friends graduating this year. :( I will most likely bawl my eyes out at graduation. 
This is completely random, but I babysat a couple of new kids this weekend and they were SO CUTE. Parker is 4 and Lilian is 10 months. so adorable. I walked into the door of their house, having never met them before, and Parker instantly says "KELSEYYYY!" runs, and gives me a hug. Lilian even reached out for me with a big smile on her face. I felt so loved, and it made me think of how much I can't wait for when I'm married and decide to have kids of my own. I've always wanted a big family. Like 4 or even 5 kids. People look at me crazy when I say that, but I really do. I love it. The chaos, the messes, the looks your children can give you that move mountains, the messy dinners, the changing diapers, the boo-boos, the kisses & hugs, the park trips, the long "are we there yet" car rides, I want it all. Putting Parker and Lily to bed, reading their stories and saying our prayers, kissing them on the forehead right before tucking them in, it was just beautiful and I've honestly fell in love with those kids.
I've been rambling for far too long now, and I still have HOMEWORK. Yucko.
Have an amazing week though, I will most likely be away from the computer all week. Busy, busy, busy.

So I cannot apologize enough for not blogging! I hate that I have been away for so long. My creative side for pictures is horribly low right now, I neeeeed to get a tripod for my camera asap.
So a lot has been happening since I've last blogged. I got my prom dress which is currently being made. exciiiiiting. The boyfriend and I are celebrating out 1 month tomorrow. Easter Sunday passed, I only got to take like 2 pictures that I liked because the wind was crazy that day!

Besides Easter, nothing big has been going on. I'm currently on my much needed Spring Break. I was at my best friend Caitlyn's house since Friday and just came home last night. Today I am going to my sister's house and will most likely be there the rest of the week. I wish I had the money/transportation to go somewhere out of Concord. Jeez, this town is too, too boring for words. 
I miss my cast of Moby Dick. We are so close, and definitely need another hang out. We are supposed to be having a picnik before school's over. I just love all of them.

My little nephew, Cole Parker, will be turning 1 in less than 2 months! It's crazy how much he's grown. He can stand up successfully now, but can't quite walk. I'm going over there today and will most likely take oodles of pictures of him. He's such a little tease. (:
