Tital: Harriet Tubman

Out in the fields you’ll find her.

Exausted from the heat, but still standing strong.

She’ll be bent over with a hoe in her hands,

Working extremely hard, while singing a song.

Harriet is a pretty, but rough looking girl.

Her hair is dark as night, and her eyes are black as coal

She is abused by Master and treated badly

But somehow there’s always love in her soul

Out in the fields she does whatever she is told

She secretly thinks about escaping, even if it would be far

That idea seems foolish to her family

She won’t give up because every night she sees the warm light of the North Star

Hope you liked it!!!!! If you liked this post, keep coming back for more:)

A new song

March 25, 2010

So I’m really not very good at guitar.  It’s something, however, that I really enjoy playing and learning.  I just find it so totally freeing to pick up a guitar, strum a few chords, and just start emptying the contents of my heart.

The other night I was feeling overwhelmed, emotional, and so tired (which is pretty much all the time with this medication I am on!).  I had just finished a talk with Rebekah and was just feeling…burdened.  She had fallen asleep on the couch and so off I went, grabbed the guitar, and started just playing along.  Nothing special, mind you.  Actually a whole lot of my friends G,C,D,and Em.

But while I am playing, I just start to sing.  I sing about my fear, my pain, my needs, my hopes.  I sing and sing and play and play.  And before I know it, I start singing something that actually resembles a song.  I grab my iPhone and record the simple melody.  I play it and sing it and I start to dig it.  Simple.  Honest.  Good.

The next night I nervously share the simple little song with Rebekah and she likes it.  So we start working through the rest of the song and she comes up with a great catchy chorus and bam – we finished a song.  Together.  Something new.  Something us.  And the really cool thing about creating something new is that it’s exhilarating.  It gives you life.  It’s so much better than watching TV.

So hopefully we’ll get a simple little recording together and post right here.  Don’t expect much, but for me, it’s a lot.

Hello all my peeps!!!!!as you all know from my last post is that i have a stomach bug or something like that. So i can’t really do anything fun:( BBBBBBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!Anyway, i wanted to say HI to everyone (that’s including deik too;)

Well anyhow, do you know what i want to do??? I want to go to California. I want to eat menchies there, pink berry, eat those yummy cookie ice cream things that grammy talks about all the time, see lillic and ollie and darby, and jason, boogie board, walk on venice beach,hike, and of course buy a really expensive ticket. end of story

Today i told judah there was a very special wishing spot in our living room. He believed me. So he went to this so called special wishing spot and wished. He wished that cosi’s eye ball would die. Cosi got made and went over to the wishing spot and wished that judah would break his leg. Then judah went over and wished cosi would be attacked by big bubbles and get snow thrown in her face, and both her eyes would fall out. Then cosi got mad and we were told to stop. and idk why i said “we” because i wasn’t involved.

Do you know what show i like to watch now? I like to watch this show called endurance. endurance is a show where a bunch of people from around the US come and play different games that involve endurance. at the very end of the season, a team becomes the winner and wins the grand prize trip to a tropical island.

Do you know what’s really sad? Judah went to the dentist today. and guess what? they say he has a cavity. isn’t that a bummer? I was sad when i heard about it. He’s getting it filled sometime in april, i think.

When anyway, that’s the end of my post. BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHY???????????

March 18, 2010

Hey everyone!!!!!I just have one eencie weencie little tiny question for you. Here it goes: WHY ??????????????????????????

WEEEEEEELLLLLLLLL……..the reason why i asked “why?” was cuz i have like the absolute WORST luck in the whole wide world. Why do i have the worst luck you ask? Well i know all you little peeps know that i am suffering like BIG TIME with my stupid little left foot. It has like a billion problems with it. Now, the other reason why i have the worst luck is because I feel sick today:'( im sick cause i feel like im gonna puke, and because i’ve had headaches on and off on and off on and off all day. also my throat kinda hurt a lil this morning.

So now im stuck with a sick tummy, a headache, and a stupid and hurt left foot. im the luckiest girl ever:D jk. I think im kinda actually the complete opposite:( this is very sad for me.

Well, you all know i’ve been able to walk on my foot for like a week or 2 now. Since i can walk, i’ve been playing outside on these beautiful days. After we’ve finished school, we’ve just rushed outside and played. We even caught a snake 2 days ago;) Well you all know today was and is a beautiful day. But you know what?!?!?!? i couldn’t even enjoy it! I had to stay inside and just feel sick allllllllllllllllllllll this long day.
And what’s really sad about me feeling sick is because i was supposed to do something fun today!!! I was supposed to go out to lunch with christian!!i was going to have fun!!!!! but ‘fun’ isn’t exactly describing my day.

I also had a HORRIBLE night last night. I like didn’t go to sleep until like 1!!!! that’s late for a little pre- teen like me! I like cried and cried last night til my teeth were chattering and i was stuttering over every word that came outta my mouth. 😥

so now you all know why im asking ‘why.’ Im asking it because it seems like im getting all the worst luck EVERYWHERE!!!! SO now you all know my pain, and you probably think you’re soooooooooooooo super duper lucky you’re not me

My audition

March 8, 2010
3 Comments

Hi everyone, yet again!!!!!As you all know, im in a drama club, and we do different skits, musicals, and plays. My dad normally just gives everyone a part out of the scrip, but this time, it’s different. this time, we’re having auditions. SINGING ONES!!

I’m a little nervous to try out, only because i really want a good part in the play…..and maybe a singing part;) so i was so stressed about what i was going to sing. there were sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many possibilities, and so mind was ticking. what to sing, what to sing, what to sing, my mind kept saying to myself. I was flipping threw all my favorite artists. paramore, carrie underwood, taylor swift, killers, and (somewhat) miley. WHAT TO SING?!?!?!?!?!?!

So i finally had settled it between two songs. the only exception, or we are broken, both songs by paramore. but my mind kept saying, “THOSE SONGS AINT GOOD ENOUGH!!!!” i had to agree with my mind. although i love both of those songs, they just don’t work for me. the only exception is like WAY too totally low for my voice. and we are broken? well it just didn’t seem right.

so after eliminating those 2 songs, i was thinking of musical songs i knew. oliver, annie, wicked, and many more. Finally i thought of the song reflection, from mulan. I reallllllllly like that song, and i think it’s just right  for my voice. So there, i had figured out my song:)

But still, i thought there were more possibilities out there. there are. and i know so. But i really think that the song reflection is a good one. and if im gonna be auditioning, i should sing a song i admire:D I really think this is a good song choice, and even if i don’t get a singing part, i will (hopefully) still think i did a pretty darn good job:)

This morning\early afternoon

March 5, 2010

Hello again! Today there hasn’t been THAT much going on, but i’ll tell you about it anyway.

So this morning my mom woke me up early. at like 7:45. now i know most kids have to get up at 6am, but not every kid can’t fall asleep at night because of their aching foot. So anyway, my mom woke me up cause i had a doctor appointment this morning. So  i got dressed, brushed my teeth, and took a long time crutching down the stairs.

When i got downstairs, mom brushed my ahir, and we were off to the hospital. I know when i say “hospital” that people usually think OH NO WHAT HAPPENED?!?!?!?!?!?but i think you all know what happened to me. my foot is injured…and i think if i explain more, you won’t really understand it;) But back to my paragraph…..we hopped into the car, and drove off to AI. When we got there, I had to crutch all the way to the door(which is VEEEERRRRRYYYY tiring) and we went inside. There we headed to the place where we had to check in. we didn’t even have to ask the lady at the front desk where to go, because sadly, we had been there so many times.

We checked in and sat in the waiting room for like 6 minutes. That was enough time for me to read a good four pages in my book. After 5-6 minutes, a dude called my name and took us in the back. There, we had to wait to see my doctor, Dr. Obrien. In the back, that dude who called my name gave me a pair of big ugly blue shorts to put on. I didn’t really want to, but he said i had to. better not argue with the dude.

After ten minutes, my doctor came in and checked me out. She said that i could start putting weight on it! (YAY!….but also nay) YAY! because i could walk! nay because it hurt to put any pressure on it.

After we were out the door, mom said we could go out for breakfast\lunch. So we drove along, and found this cute little diner call Lucky’s Coffee Shop. So we went  inside and sat down. While we were sitting down mom said she felt like we had gone back in time:) she said that it looked like a restaurant that would’ve been there awhile ago.

Once we sat down, the waitress came over and we ordered stuff. Mom ordered over-easy eggs, toast, and  home fries. I ordered french toast, chocolate milk, home fries, and sausage. The food was great!! I ate a lot of it!!But i just couldn’t finish the french toast. But that didn’t matter because the french toast was HUUUUUUUGGGGGEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

After we ate, we took the pretty ride home with mansions and woods. Overall, i had a fun time driving and looking at the houses.

So that was my morningish afternoon. Come to my blog tomorrow for more posts!!
