School, school, school.
Fun, right?
I'm not gonna lie, I LOVED summer.
But it's time to start school.. Monday!
It's true, i'm a freshman this year.
Now everything counts.
I'll see these grades for the rest of my life.
No pressure, right?
I came up with some questions, you can answer them too!
What are you most looking forward to this year?
Defiantly Mandarin! I'll be taking it as my foreign language and I am SO excited!
What are you least looking forward to this year?
Math. I hate it. I mean that too!
What something new about this school year?
Co-op. I'll be taking Math and Science at a new co-op.
How is this year different from those in the past?
It's High School now. Both Lily and Josh will require alot of attention.
My work load is increasing by alot!
What exactly are you taking?
U.S. History
Physical Science
Academic Writing
Ballet/ Pointe
Band (Clarinet Player!!)
Alot right?
I feel really heavy right now.
I know I can do it, but it's going to require alot more of myself.
What about blogging?
I've asked myself this multiple times. Until a few weeks in I won't know really how much I can blog. Hopefully a post or two during the week. But I may become a week-end blogger!
So what does your (school) year have in-store???

Origami Flower: Tutorial

Okay, so these little flowers, are so darn cute!
And a great time passer!
First, thanks to my friend, Maddie. She showed my how to make these during the Super Bowl!
Aren't they adorable? I have them laying around in my room, everywhere!

First you need 3x3 Origami Paper
If you don't have any laying around, you can use 'Post It' sticky notes. 
(The sticky side will make it more difficult though.) 
And a glue gun.

Start by laying the paper down back side up.
And fold it corner to corner, creating a triangle.

Then take the right corner and bring it to the top.
And again with the left corner.

When your done you should have a diamond with a slit down the middle.

Next step is complicated!
At the top of your triangle is a slit.
Open it, so it looks like the picture.

And push it down.
As shown in the picture.
(It's hard, so don't get mad if you mess up.)

It should look like this. ^^
Repeat with the other triangle.

It should look like this. ^^

Fold down the "Mini" triangles at the top.
On both sides.

Fold your triangle in half.
(Do it to the other side, too.)

It should look like this. ^^
Now take your glue gun, and put some glue on one of the flaps.

And push both sides together.

And you've made one pedal.
Repeat the steps 4 more times and then glue all the pedal together.
And you'll have an Origami Flower!

So what did you think?
Did you like the flowers?
Did I explain it well?
Like the pictures? ( Took them with one hand!)
Let me know!!

More About Me..

Okay, so this is a post so that we can get to know each other better.
Kinda, like get to know ya post!

So first you should know my movie/tv craze.
I have a portable DVD player in my room where I watch movies.
All the time, no lie!
First i'm an action movie girl.
Weird right?
I LOVE The Lord of the Rings!
Like adore. We have all 3 and the Hobbit comes out in December...
SO excited!
I could go on forever, but I'll stop.

A new fav. on my list is Captain America!
Watched on the plane, twice!!
I need to buy, so I can add to my collection!
Goodness I loved it!

Next up?
War Horse.
This movie is like a war version of Black Beauty.
I cried, several times.
 It's REALLY long.
And there a bit of language.
But your are happy when the movies over!

Moving out of the action movies.
One HUGE favorite is 
Soul Surfer.
   If you haven't seen it, see it!
It's PG mainly because of the shark attack, but I didn't think it was that bad.
(Maybe that has to do with my Lord of the Rings marathons??)
It's a really inspirational movie!

Next is totally 
October Baby!
    Everyone should see this.
It's rated PG-13 for the "Mature Elements".
So if your old enough to understand abortion and the cruel aspects of it,
See it.
 It comes out on DVD very soon!

Okay next is the kid in me movies!
All the Toy Stories,
Mainly 3!
   I love pretty much all Pixar movies.
I do.
But Toy Story beats all.
They make you laugh, they make you cry.
It's just that simple.

Next is
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
Good Gracious this movie is hilarious! 
   But you might shed a tear or two near the end!

Honestly, if I showed you all the movies I loved, you be forever.

But now, my Old TV show craze.

Little House on the Prairie 
   I own all 10 season.

   They never, ever get old.
Lets face it, everyone loves em'!

The Walton's.
"Goodnight, John-Boy"
Goodness I love them too!
   Out of everyone, Mary Ellen is most like me.
And she has the future I want, Nursing! 
 I've seen every season except 9

Then there's
I Love Lucy
   Constant laughter! That's all I can say!

Well there's a bit about me!
More stuff tomorrow!

Oh, yeah! What movie/show do you like??

Braided Headband

 Today I did a video to show you how to do a Braided Headband
(Joy gave me the idea of a video!)
Original Pin 

Forgive my mistakes and weird sound effects. 
And my face, not wearing any make-up!
