Uncertainty at Its Finest

I believe an apology is well overdue, my dear followers. I have been dreadfully inconsistent and horribly inconsiderate in this blogging thing. I know most of you have been waiting in great anticipation for my next post. Blood, sweat, tears and all.

The reason for my inconsistency is this: My life has been showing EXTREME cases of uncertainty as of late. Everything has been whirling about without stopping, overwhelming me with stress and worry. Right now, I'm trying to get back on track with my piles of schoolwork and the million and one other things I have to do.

So, please. Accept my apology. I'm sure many of you understand my situation.

And if you can't stand how slow my posts come, you can do one of two things.

Unfollow my blog, which will sadden me but give you your life back.


Continue to follow me and give me suggestions of what kind of posts YOU would like to see from me. I'll be happy to oblige to anything. Well.... ALMOST anything. ;) If you do this, it'll keep me more motivated to actually log onto the blogging world and entertain your waiting minds.

All that being said, I'd better be off to conquer this mountain of work I have! To those of you who decide to leave, farewell. To the rest of you, I love you all!! You make me beyond happy! ^_^

Happy New Year!

Okay, I realize this is a few days late, but better to post now than never, right? I thought I'd start this off by talking about my Christmas and what a wonderful time I had. Because I really did have a spectacular and very blessed Christmas. :) The orchestra concerts that I talked about flew by, and were excellent to have right before Christmas. They were so much fun and a great success! Tomorrow begins my first orchestra rehearsal of the year, which I know is a little soon, but I'm looking forward to it because I loooove orchestra!! :D

Christmas this year (last year, I should say) was full of joy, peace, excitement, food, friends, family, music, laughter, and.... PRESENTS! :D Here is a list of some of the great presents I got, just cause I thought you'd like to know. ;) And cause they're oh so cool!! :D

1. Lots and lots of candy and chocolate.

2. Fuzzy pajamas.

3. A cross necklace from my sister, a snowflake necklace from my mother, and a pair of earrings from my grandma.

4. An earring making set.

5. A giant makeup set.

6. A miniature sock monkey that I named Lewis in honour of C.S. Lewis. :) I got the bigger monkey for Christmas last year, and he still remains nameless. :P

7. Piano music! :D

8. A beautiful pen with my name engraved on it. ^_^

9. A digital pocket dictionary.

10. These books, by the one and only Mr. S, founder of the OYAN curriculum, which has produced my own two novels. ^_^

11. The first book of "The Hunger Games." My copy isn't quite as elaborate as this, but it's lovely all the same. I've already read through the entire thing. :)

12. The DVD for the OYAN Summer Workshop 2011 in Kansas, that I reeeaaallly want to go to this year!!

13. And one of the most exciting gifts of all.....

I'm so happy about this!! It's 3 seasons of Doctor Who (seasons 2, 3, and 4), all with David Tennant! :D I'm halfway through the 3rd season at the moment.

I think that's all my presents! There may be a few missing from there, but I think you get the picture. Needless to say, I got some really nice stuff. Christmas was awesome and I feel so incredibly blessed! Now... to move on to New Years.

I spent New Years with the family at home, eating yummy food, playing games, and waiting for the countdown. At the stroke of 12, we all went outside and made a bunch of noise, banging pots and pans, all that fun stuff. We stayed out in the freezing cold for about 20 minutes, before retreating to the indoors and trotting off to bed.

The last day of 2011 wasn't much to speak about. It was a little... depressing, actually. But I DID come up with some resolutions/prayers for 2012.

1. Read through the entire Bible.

2. Strive to become a more faithful Christian and glorify God in everything I do.

3. Get a real job.

4. Be more diligent with my schoolwork.

5. Speak openly to at least 2 unbelievers about Christ.

6. Be more optimistic.

7. Be more content.

8. Read all the books on my shelf.

9. Be more creative with my blog posts.

And that should do it! *wipes sweat off of forehead* Wow, this blog thing is getting exhausting! But I shall continue to do it. I shall persevere.

In case you hadn't noticed, school officially started today. It feels like I've only had a week off of school! But really, I've only had about TWO weeks off, and that's not much at all. So, I'm diving into my schoolwork without fully being ready. Fun, huh?

I'm trying to think of a grand ending to this post, but... nope. Nothing's coming. I shall just end with saying this: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :D And God bless you in the year to come!
