ALSO! My Greatgrandma hasn't gone into surgery, they are still too afraid that her blood is too thin. However, she is on pain meds. Thank you for the prayers and please continue.

Grandma Great 911 prayers

Hey everyone,
i know i've been posting silly stuff recently, but if y'all could pray for my great grandma, that would be awesome!
She fell and broke her hip and she's at a very delicate age right now. And she's on some meds that thin her blood so they are afraid of other meds they can give her (including pain meds even though she's in a lot of pain), and afraid of the surgery. It will be preformed sometime tomorrow, so please pray that the doctors can help her and that she has a speedy recovery. I'm quite concerned for her and about her! Also pray for my great grandpa and all the rest of my family.
Thanks. Love you guys!!!

and so it began...

Day two of this wonderful new adventure! I let the water purify for 24 hours, and just now I added the sea monkey instant eggs and am letting them sit under a powerful light (aka, my desk light) for several days while I wait for them to grow. It is tiresome work, but totally worth it. I will love these little guys like no other 18 year old would (or should be)! What’s even better is now I’m buying my older sister sea monkeys and giving them to her over sister’s week, and I may even get some for my younger(ish) sister too!

I am truly excited! Here’s picture numero duo :D

Sea Monkeys ("It's the start of something new")

Ever since the beginning of school when I learned we could own fish, I’ve wanted sea monkeys! However, I had been unsuccessful at finding this rarity. UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT! Well, seeing as I was RUSHING to curfew, I didn't buy my new pet(s), but patiently waited till I woke up on Saturday (at 1, then I took a shower, then I went and ate) to start BEGGING my friends (Alex, Jordan, and Lawson) to take me to Wal-Mart again. I eagerly asked what color container I should choose, green, blue, green, blue... at which point someone stated, "Green is my favorite color." It was decided. Green.

Well, I took my precious new friends to my room and then went and watched several movies.

Now, here I am, purifying my bottled water for my new friends. (Since sea monkeys are multiple beings, I don't know how I’m going to name them. Especially since they all look the same...). Here is a picture of the first stage: WATER PURIFICATION! Tomorrow, around this time, I will add the little tiny eggs. Then in a couple days, I will begin to see them. Oh, the joy. I'm so excited! I haven't seen sea monkeys since I was a kid.

You want to know the best part? They are supposed to live for at least two years!!! I'm so elated by this.

Well, I’ll keep y'all posted on this exciting adventure. Here is the first picture!

Life as we knew it

Wow, what a crazy, wild, memorable year. 2010. I'm sad to see it go, although honestly i didn't think i was going to survive it. I joked for years about how i'd never see my graduation or make it to my 18th birthday, but thankfully all those were just silly little comments. I have made it. I have actually made it and have made it 9 months into my 18th year of life. Now if i could only pause life. Pause. Pause it right here. That's right. Just keep living the last 9 months of my life over and over and over again. Put it on rerun.
Why? Why, you may be asking. Well, in the last 9 months i have turned into a "kiddult" as my dad would put it, graduated from high school, moved to college, started my degree (electrical engineering), met a ton of new friends, tried to keep up with old friends, traveled, sung songs, and just had a blast. As i look over the last 9 months (almost 10 now), i see that life is flying past. Am i taking ahold of EACH & EVERY DAY? no. No i am not.
So, as time goes on, don't forget. Each day is a blessing. Each day, well, you just don't know when you won't have a day. Somedays i forget that life is short; other days... well, i wonder if life will ever go on.
That was a random rant. Sorry for not posting so much. I guess it's cause, when i'm writting/talking, things like that ^ come out. I don't remember if there was any other point to this post. I guess the main thing i wanted to say is below.
I just wanted to thank all of you who have been so amazing in 2010 and i hope to stay connected to you in 2011!
