Unbelievable :D

The job I just started last week has kept me busy!
I guess the daily update did not work as well as planned.
Tomorrow (err I mean TODAY) I will be flying to Virginia for school orientation. So exciting!
I just started going to Bible study class as well every Monday, and it has truly made an impact on my life. I hope that once I start college, that I will prioritize time to read the Bible.
Summer is just so delightful!
The sun, the friends, the food; EVERYTHING!
Thank you God!

I get to take dogs on walks!


Have I mentioned that I have been afraid of big dogs ever since I was little. I am learning to get over that fact, but trust me, it is TOUGH. Like sometimes my heart is beating 1000 mi/hr.
I promised that I won't quit, so even if I come home scratched, I will continue until the summer is over. Uh Oh.
haha

Sleepy time

Has it ever happened to you that you get so caught up in a book that you can't put it down? Well that happened to me yesterday night, and well I continue reading until this morning. At least now I know that I am immune to caffeine because I fell asleep 20 minutes after drinking 16 oz.
I got a job today!
I am about to fall asleep, I am sorry that this post is not so interesting but it was a super long day.

Life is a climb

AWESOME! Today I got my housing information for my freshmen year in college. I will be roommates with a stranger. Is that weird or what? Hopefully she is nice :)

As usual, I watched most of the soccer games, but I tried my best to not become a couch potato. Those were the good old days, where I could eat a whole medium cheese pizza from Dominos and not gain a single pound. haha
In the afternoon, I finally got the will power to go jogging. It was fun! The hardest part was leaving the house, but after a few minutes I was just in synced with my sister's playlist. Dee doo dah.

One of the many grain elevators in town!
Someday, I will take a picture from the top.
Jogged to the "yellow brick road" and decided to take a picture. Just in case I forget to snap a picture before I leave Kansas.

So glad it stopped raining or else this would not be good for the hospital (the building in the background).
By the way, this is not a lake.

Humongous ______ (AH I forgot what they are called).

Hello

I missed the actual sunset, but I think this could replace it.

A year and a half ago, my sister and I filmed this video in response to this band we liked. :)
Sadly they are not together anymore. The band was called Push Play.

Little Moments

I woke up extra early today, 7:30 to be exact (believe me, for summer, that is unacceptable. Kidding). First thing I did was turn on the TV to watch the World Cup. Seriously, I really like soccer, and if I could I would play every day. That was pretty much my whole morning/early afternoon.
Later I helped my friend (Andrea) with some serious business ;D (for this local event coming up very soon). I went to Bible Study with Andrea that night. That really helped me because it brought me back to earth. It's almost the same feeling that I get when I hear a critical bad news that sets my priorities straight, and I realize that my dilemmas before the crisis where not as big of a deal compared to the events taking place. Am I making sense?
Pretty much like saying "Don't take things for granted".
It was a life lesson. =]
Daily Pictures:


My "exercise" for the day; walking to my friend's house.
The World Cup is taking over my life. haha


What?! October is almost here? Nah, it's just Hobby Lobby.


The day was partly cloudy (again).
Luckily we did not have any floods.


Soy Bean Freeze from Metropolitan. Yumm


Sweet carved picture. It's true.

AristoCats

I realized that I have a love/hate relationship with running. There are days where I rather sit in the couch for hours and not move a foot, running then is the last thing on my mind! The best feeling ever is right afterwords though, when all the stress has been release and I feel like I can do anything. You know?


Today:

I had a movie (afternoon) at my friends house with all the junk (but yummy) food you can imagine. I think I conditioned myself to fall asleep every time I watch an old Disney movie. Where is the undo button? haha

I saved the cupcake for my sister =]


Later that day I went to my friend's youth group event. Two words: Ultimate Frisbee!
After a very competitive game, a storm approached our town. It was awesome, but I wasn't able to capture the sunset.

BP jokes are overrated





Really, they are overrated.
Poor England goalkeeper, Robert Green, was criticized after a terrible mistake that led US scoring and tying the game. I am not going to state my opinion over who should have won, but how in the world did they connect BP with FIFA (on Twitter)?

  • "Breaking News: BP to use Robert Green to plug oil leak. Everyone agrees he's already a hero in USA & no point going home #worldcup "
  • "Oh wow....England keeper Green stopped that about as well as a BP cap. GOAL USA!!!!!"
Poor guy :(.

The coach

The game

I cooked dinner! I called it: Sa-LAD
(Avocado, lettuce, black olives, seasoned chicken, tortilla strips, cucumber, carrots, onions, and mandarins).
P.S. ignore the hanging onion. haha


Where did the sun go?

Sleepy weather

I went for a short walk after dinner. A minute after, it started raining and I saw lightning. I made a run towards my house. haha

GOOOOOOOL!



Today, I went for a drive to watch the sunset and I thought:
"Kansas just might be as/or even more beautiful than Hawaii if we just had an ocean near us.", but then again, Kansas has it's own beauties even if it doesn't have an actual beach. Beat that Hawaii! Kidding.




Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies I baked for a friend's birthday. I had to try a "couple" of cookies to check if they were alright ;D



*sigh. so beautiful!



Bad (not really serious) news: I had to return the alarm clock I bought. Apparently it did all of the functions an alarm clock does (plus mp3 player), the thing was, it did not charge my ipod. :\
In case you buy one, make sure to check that (if it comes with a dock)!

Kumbaya


Today I went to The Burning Up Tour with a couple of my friends. The band's singer of The Radiance Effect came to play an acoustic set in the "middle of nowhere" Kansas. There was a campfire and free food. It was amazing!

I want a biscuit

I just want to say:

"Does a 10 pound bag of flour make a really big biscuit?"


__________

On our way to Yoder.


Home made food! Located in Yoder, Kansas.


Bullet holes or steel made bugs?


I started driving on 30th street and somehow I ended up on 108th street. I am still on the quest to find my "secret" spot for the perfect sunset.


While Skyping with my friend Erica, we decided to "photoshop" picture for the World Cup.
Go Spain and Portugal!



*Also: Good luck to all the teams!
