Weekend Writings

It feels so good to have a free weekend. I’ve been busy busy busy busy for the past 2 or 3 weeks and I just want to sit and stare at the wall for a little while… haha

Swimming leagues championships was Thursday night at 7. I wore my Speedo kneeskin and it totally helped! I shaved off two seconds on my 200 Im and 2 seconds on my 500 free! Our 200 free relay got 8th out of 16 and 400 relay got 9th of 16. Even though we didn’t medal or get to stand on the little red “Seventh Place” block, it was still a fun and successful meet. Afterwards we went through the drive through at McDonald’s and the school van wouldn’t fit around the corner… The McDonald’s guy was just sitting in there cracking up.

So, yeah, swimming is over now. I miss it already. haha :)

I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself with these 2 free hours in the afternoons!

I like to gather 12 or 13 pictures to represent my year. This year, I went through my photos and found 13 pictures that perfectly represented the year 2012. Enjoy.

This year has been such a blessed one! I like to find an area of growth, an area that needs work, and an area of blessing for each year. This past year, I grew in wanting to know God more and my faith, etc. I need to work on my kindness, thinking before I speak, and not being self-righteous/judgemental. I’ve been hugely blessed in the area of friendships and opportunities. I’ve hung out with so many people and gotten to know so many amazing friends. I pray that these friendships continue to develop and grow deeper in the Lord this coming year.
