Sitting still

I'm sitting here pondering my summer.
For those of you who know me, even just the thought of me sitting still probably blows your mind, not to mention me actually being serious.
But it's true, I am. A lot happened to me this summer. Some of it I was kind of expecting, and other things were pleasant surprises.
One of the big things is that I got a lot closer to all of my friends, thanks to some things that had seemed terrible at first. Looking for the good things in life has really changed the way I look at my situations.
Another thing I learned is that algebra is not as hard as I thought it was. Difficult, yes; annoying, absolutely; but by no means is it impossible.
Another thing I learned is that it's a good idea to keep track of where the dog doo was when you're playing Ultimate Frisbee barefoot. This is a wonderful example of hands-on learning, (or should I say feet-on?) in my opinion.
Another thing I learned is that my cousins are some of the most amazing people in the world. No matter what we were doing, as long as we were together it was fun; from singing to tipping canoes. Sometimes I almost wish that I had nasty mean cousins so that I wouldn't miss them so much the rest of the year...but then I think about how LAME our family reunions would be then and I change my mind. I love them the way they are!
And of course, all the things I learned at camp, and to quote the book of John: The which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.
So, all things considered, I think this summer was a pretty good one. 
Now I suppose I'm ready for school to start...


  1. It's nice to stop and think sometimes. And it sounds like you had a lot of good things to think about. :)
