winter break [01 Jan 2006|06:23pm]
[ mood | happy ]

winter break has been pretty fun. the surf has been eh okay. we had really good and fun surf on christmas which was a special treat, other then that its just kinda been okay. my friend from cocoa beach is up visiting so we have all been chillin. heres some pics

on thursday it was really warm and sunny so i decided to try and get a tan since my whole body is white except for my face neck and hands from my wetsuit. and it looks like i did a bad job with my make up because i have a tanline on my neck, it looks like a foundation line. haha

anyway i took my new sterio for my ipod down there

it was pretty sunny for a day in december but i dont think i was out long enough to get tan. but it was really nice.

all the boys have been skating big kahunas, this water park, because its drained. it was really cool because it has some nice snake runs and i went in to watch them skate it but it was really wet because it had rained the day before. on the way out we figured out that the building up at the enterance of the park with lights on that we thought was empty actually had a guard in it and that freaked us out, but he must be really bad at his job because my brothers had been there like twice before that and skated and he never caught them. haha

last night was fun. for new years we bought food and chilled in the rental house with jacob john skyler brock me and my friend jeri. we went and made fun of the people camping out at walmart in lawn chairs waiting for there x box 360s. i mean thats what they were doing with their new years eve. we went and crashed this little girls party because my brothers wanted too, and other then that we just kinda chilled. the boys smoked oreos out of a corn cob pipe and jacob threw up. hahah

this post is going to seem like im sad or depressed. im not at all, just thinking deeply i guess. i havent used livejournal in forever which in a way is kind of comforting because no one is really reading this. since myspace is the new livejournal. haha. anyway, i was thinking that im incredibly satisfied. me relationship with God is closer then ever. im proud of myself. proud of my grades, proud of my church, proud of my ability to stay away from stupid highschool choices. i have been single since last febuary. not to say there hasnt been some boys since then but no relationships since the last complete trainwreck. surfing has been everything to me. it is my baby, it is my compeitive outlet, it is my stress releiver, i am untouchable. i am on a team, a good team of surfers, and i am loving contests and i am hungry for the next one. im going to california for two months during secong semester for two whole months. because my aunt wants to take me. i am planning on polishing my surfing. i know God is going something with my surfing and i know thats what ill be doing for the rest of my life. i am very well taken care of. but i just need someone to make me laugh. i think that is what i am missing. a real, genuine, let your hair down, laugh till you have tears in your eyes, kind of friend. i need somebody real, somebody to share my ups and downs with, somebody fun, somebody like jacob or travis or ariel or meghan back in cocoa beach. i am completely satisfied with the person i have become and i have learned so much. now im ready to find a friend to stick with. i dont know where that person is, i dont know if its one of the friends i already have. but i know one must be coming, i havent really laughed with a good friend here in so long. anyway, next contest is in january. i go to cocoa beach to watch the girls in the gallaz pro at the begining of january. and im setting goals for my surfing. and im seeing myself progress tremendously. i love where i am, and most importantly, i love who i have become.

WOW!!!



thats all i can say about how life has been lately! revosummer was amazing, i ended up tellimg my testimony on the last day, its amazing how God uses people because i would never get up in front of 300+ teens and adults/pastors and talk about god or anything really. but i did and i did it with excitement because i am SO EXCITED ABOUT WHAT GOD IS DOING! before i left for campo i felt like i was going to have to wait to graduate to find my purpose, but now i see that every step i take into fort walton beach highschool is my purpose, i am sopposed to be here, that is MY mission field! every day i take joy in being the lords disciple to the kids at my school and all i want to do is reflect all the love and joy that jesus gives to me every day and show the kids that are so lost that they are here for a reason.

and so school started last thursday and its been awesome, i know this year has all been planned out for me and theres a reason for everything. and theres a reason everything happened last year too! i am even slowly learning to pray for my enemies and people that i was so angry at i now have compasion for and i see the pain in them like i had in myself not to long ago! I love a boy and the awesome thing is that we're friends and we;ve always been that way and i just realized how much i just completely love the kid! i mean, im with him and i just know that god put me in his life for a reason and i love talking to him and i want so badly for him to have the joy that i have and purpose that i have through christ so i am constantly just trying to be there for him in whatever way i can because i love him! and im just waiting for god to show me whats to happen with that!

anyways, im listening to elliot smith right now which makes me cry everytime i hear him! hahah!

OH YEAH! im leading worship for groundswell, learning to play the piano and such. My dad cried when i played a worship song for him! and people tell me i have a "passionate" voice! thats one of the coolest things ive ever heard!

well anyways everythings really good except umm NO SURF!!!! so i really dont know what to do with myself anymore when i get home from school!


9 days and ill be surfing with melanie bartels and rochelle ballard two of my biggest inspirations in female surfing! STOKED!!


anyways, LIFE IS GRAND, but dont i always say that!
