Hi, yo, and hola.  Hey, World, guess what? I’m finally 12!  &lt:-P party Yay! And, yes, my 12th birthday was quite memorable. Well, my grandparents took me, my mom, and brothers to a hotel to spend the night. And it had a pool. Well, we spent the night, and then the next morning, we decided to go for a swim. We decided to play ‘Dare or dare’ and I dared my younger brother to climb into a plastic laundry basket near the towels. So he scampered/ran over to where the plastic basket was, and in the process slipped on the tile and hit his head!! At first, we assumed he was okay, then later, in the car, he acted like he was having trouble breathing, and then said he thought he was gonna puke.:puke! puke Then he slumped down on the seat and  WAS QUIET FOR ONCE IN HIS LIFE. that’s when I figured somethin’s gotta be wrong, cuz’ he is never quiet. Then, when we got, home, he really started puking. My mom said that she wanted to take him to the hospital. So she did,and they found out that he had a concussion. He’s fine now, though.~^o^~ cheer Yay.  He can’t do school work, PE, or any form of test.  The lucky duck. Why didn’t I fall on my head?

Amazing story


I saw this one day and thought I would post it… 

One day, when I was a freshman in high school,

I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school.

His name was Kyle.

It looked like he was carrying all of his books.

I thought to myself, ‘Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday?

He must really be a nerd.’

I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my
friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on.

As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him.

They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping
him so he landed in the dirt.

His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten
feet from him…

He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes

My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him as he crawled
around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye.

As I handed him his glasses, I said, ‘Those guys are jerks.’

They really should get lives.

‘ He looked at me and said, ‘Hey thanks!’

There was a big smile on his face.

It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.

I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived.

As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never
seen him before..

He said he had gone to private school before now.

I would have never hung out with a private school kid before.

We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books.

He turned out to be a pretty cool kid.

I asked him if he wanted to play a little football
with my friends

He said yes.

We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I
liked him, and my  friends thought the same of him.

Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again.

I stopped him and said, ‘Boy, you are gonna really build some serious
muscles with this pile of books everyday!

‘ He just laughed and handed me half the books.

Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends…

When we were seniors we began to think about college.

Kyle decided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke.

I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never
be a problem.

He was going to be a doctor and I was going for business on a football

Kyle was valedictorian of our class.

I teased him all the time about being a nerd.
He had to prepare a speech for graduation.

I was so glad it wasn’t me having to get up there and speak

Graduation day, I saw Kyle.

He looked great.

He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school.

He filled out and actually looked good in glasses.

He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him..

Boy, sometimes I was jealous!

Today was one of those days.

I could see that he was nervous about his speech.

So, I smacked him on the back and said, ‘Hey, big guy, you’ll be great!’

He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled.

‘ Thanks,’ he said.

As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began

‘Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through
those tough years.

Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach…but mostly
your friends….

I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the
best gift you can give them.

I am going to tell you a story.’

I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the
first day we met.

He had planned to kill himself over the weekend.

He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn’t
have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home.

He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile.

‘Thankfully, I was saved.

My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable..’

I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy
told us all about his weakest moment.

I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile.

Not until that moment did I realize it’s depth..

Never underestimate the power of your actions..

With one small gesture you can change a person’s life.

For better or for worse.

God puts us all in each others lives to impact one another in some way.

Look for God in others.

Hi again!

Hi, yo, and hola, and all that.  :-h wave Oh, hey, I read these somewhere and I think it’s really funny:

An Englishmen, a French man, and a New Yorker are captured by cannibals. The chief says, “We will kill you, eat you, and use your skins to make a new canoe.” He also says they get to choose how they would like to die. the Englishman  pulls out a small gun, yells “God save the Queen!”, pulls the trigger, and dies. The Frenchman grabs a bottle of poison, shouts “Vive la France.” and dies. It’s the New Yorker’s turn. He grabs a fork and stabs himself all over saying, Screw your darn canoe!!!”


Dramatically slamming a book shut is way more satisfying than turning my Kindle off and placing it gently on the table.


Some rather Unhelpful advice:

In case of fire, evacuate building. Do not use stairs. Do not use elevator. (Sign at Federal Reserve Bank in Boston)


This was overheard in the hospital…

Nurse: When you get home,put ice on your eye to reduce the swelling. A bag of frozen peas works well.

Patient: We don’t have any frozen peas. Will canned peas work?

Well, I had to get braces the day after Valentine’s day (I know, horrible timing, right?) AND THEY HURT LIKE HECK. Oh. My. Word.  There are some wires in the back of my mouth and they are poking me so bad I’m afraid they might wear a hole in my cheek. Oww ow oww. At least mom lets me eat lots of ice cream. :) happy Just a word of advice to anyone who has to get braces: Do ANYTHING  you can to avoid getting them!! They hurt like crazy! Although, I have only had them for 3 days…I guss I have to wait awhile for the pain to go away. I’ll keep you posted! (lol, keep you posted, get it?)
