Oops! I almost deleted you because I didn't recognize you. But then I figured out it was you. When was your profile pic taken? It looks too young to be you now. Yet it still looks like you.
About your drawing offer: yes I actually do, but I'll send you all the info in an email.
Hey, just browsing and I saw your bookshelf. Saw you have some James Dashner there. I just finished 13th Reality and LOVED it. Working on book 2 now, totally enjoying it as well. Dashner actually wrote a nice cover blurb for a book of mine called Billy: Messenger of Powers, so it was nice to be able to return the favor and write a nice review for him. Anywho, cool shelf, thanks for letting me nose around!
Are you finished moving yet or is that at a later date? Yep, I do understand about chistian schools being expensive. I have looked into it myself before. Online classes are the easiest for me as well. I am so glad that online classes exist because I don't know how I could do without them!! My husband and I both take ours online and have been doing it for years. He likes the online classes and wants to keep going at them. Oh, how very cool that you like to find names for books!! I will have to remember that! I also love looking for names but whenever I am looking, I will let you know!!
Watercolor would be fun I think-- I haven't really tried. Maybe I should sometime. I have a huge set of Prisma Colored pencils and I love to fool around with them. Or just even grabbing my kids' crayons and coloring with them is something I enjoy.
Fencing would be SO COOL!! How in the world do you know how to fence??! Who taught you? Can you teach me? LOL. That would be so amazing I think. Irish dancing sounds like it would be so fun as well! I haven't done it before. You have very interesting abilities, very neat. As for me, I don't really play sports anymore, though I did as a kid. I played volleyball, basketball, and softball-- but I wasn't very good at the sports. I did, however, enjoy running track in relays though and even broke a school record (which was cool)... but that was a LONG, LONG time ago!! I have always wanted to try ice skating but never have been-- have you? I love to watch figure skating on tv when it's on-- especially couple skating. But, no, I don't play sports really. I do love to go hiking though!!!! Is that a sport? I love to just wonder in nature and explore the trails and go far as possible.
Books I like are mostly Christian "chick flic romances"..... and/or Amish romances.... and/or historical romance... So romance pretty much!!! As long as it's CLEAN romance and not trashy, you know. I also love young adult books with fantasy and romance of course!! So what books do you like mostly?
As for movies... I have always been a "hopeless romantic" kind of girl. I love a good, sappy romantic comedy like Never Been Kissed or Sweet Home Alabama-- anything with clean romance in it. A Walk To Remember is one of my favorites. Tonight I am going to watch the new release movie Remember Me with Robert Pattinson in it. I hope it is good!! So what movies are you into??
As for bands, I love Christian Alternative mostly such as Seventh Day Slumber, Skillet, Plumb, Kutless, The Wrecking, Tenth Avenue North, Barlow Girl, Fire Flight, NEEDTOBREATHE, etc. There are too many to count. But the only radio station that I listen to is AIR1.com
If you haven't heard of it-- you should look it up!!
You've moved 12 times? Wow, that is quite a lot! Well, I hope you get to stay where you are if you are as happy as you say!! Oh, I see, so you go to a private christian school then--- cool. Thanks for sending me that link of the Christian Drama school-- it looks very fun and inspiring!! It's cool that you are so into it and you are excited about it. Also, very neat that your church has been involved in helping Haiti for so long. Your church and Christian Drama school seem like the perfect place to unite with others and share God. You've always wanted to be a missionary in Russia? Wow, awesome! Maybe God will send you there sometime soon! It is a very good idea to teach yourself Russian, I think!
My hobbies? Well, I love being outdoors-- hiking, boating, swimming, going on picnics, bike riding, etc. I love nature and animals. I love to write and read stories. I love to draw as well like you-- but I am not so good at it. I wish I were good. I do not know how to paint at all!! LOL. Maybe you could teach me!
What other things do you like?
Your church sounds great--- some churches don't have buildings and meet other places--- nothing wrong with that!! I used to go to a home church and I so loved it!! I was really sad when the pastor and his wife and to move away to New York and we had to find a different church family-- because we were really close with them and I miss them so much.
Well, I haven't listened to hymns since I was a little girl-- I grew up in a baptist background but then met my husband who came from a carasmatic background. Hymns have its moments of good, spiritual depth--- but nowadays so many of them are being turned into contemporary style music. But hymns are apart of my childhood and I use to love singing them--- I remember singing "Just As I Am" and "Amazing Grace" (which most people are familiar with). The song you're talkinga about "O the Deep Deep Love of Jesus"--- I am pretty sure I have heard this one before in a children's group class.
But, yeah, it's cool to meet different people with different interests. ;)
If you ever have the opportunity to go on a missions trip out of the country---- TAKE IT!!!! Because going out of the country and doing missions work can change your whole outlook on life and bring you into a more spiritual connection with God and those you meet!! The service projects you are talking about reminds me of Workcamp we have--- where you do different projects on people's houses and yard work and so forth--- Good way to serve!!! Cleaning the river--- that sounds interesting--- I haven't done that one before!! Anyway, hope your Memorial Day was a good one too Anna!! :]
Ah. I MCed one year and the two plays were "The Quest for Quazi" and "Little Red and The Hoods." I helped out with the "LRH" (Little Red and the Hoods) because it was an audience interactive one. And the one I told you about I was a German foreign exchange student. That play was called "Channel Surfing."
