~Highlights From 2017~ 2018 is Almost Here!

2018 is almost here! It’s hard to believe that 2017 is about to come to a close. Reflecting back over the year… It was a good one πŸ™‚ So much happened. It started off super rough. I was so done mentally, done with being lonely and feeling sorry for myself. The resolution I made for 2017 was to have a better year than 2016. But then it all turned around and ended up as a year that will be very special for a long time ^_^

Here’s some of the my highlights of 2017 πŸ™‚

  • My trip to Missouri. Even though it was really difficult (There was a lot I was dealing with.), it was good to goΒ  spend time with some of my siblings and nieces and nephews. It all was very bittersweet.
  • Camp. Where I found healing πŸ™‚ Everyone that I met there, everything I did… All the fun I had πŸ™‚
  • Co-Op. I’m not sure that I could have survived another year without it ^_^ The people there especially. Everyone there accepted me as one of them without a moment’s hesitation. It didn’t take me long at all before it became a normal part of my life πŸ™‚
  • One family that I and my family has gotten close to in the Co-Op πŸ™‚ They’re the sweetest family. We’re really similar, but different at the same time. They’ve been such a blessing.
  • Theater. That’s one of the classes I’m taking at Co-Op. I wasn’t sure about it the first time I went, but it definitely went up from there πŸ™‚ One of the first classes I volunteered to help write the script. I’m so glad I did ^_^ I had no idea I would enjoy it so much.
  • Thanksgiving. I’ve never really enjoyed Thanksgiving that much, but this year was different πŸ™‚ I did a lot of the baking and helping with preparation,which I really enjoyed. And then we had the family mentioned above over for dinner. We ate good food, talked, played games afterward… It wasn’t anything fancy or spectacular; everything was very low key. It was one of, and quite possibly the best, Thanksgivings I’ve ever had πŸ™‚
  • Going to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Aaaaaaaaahh!! I saw it about two weeks ago, so I’m still fan girling about it ^_^ My brother and I dressed up as jedi. We went with people from our church. It was so much fun XD

What I’m Thinking– Random Moments

This is an idea I’ve seen around, and I’ve always thought that it was neat πŸ™‚ The only problem is that it is never your current train of thought… You may sit down and write half of it, and then get called by your mother to do something, or only write half a post in a day, and when you come back your thoughts are completely different!

The Star Wars Theme

Hello, peoples!

The title has probably made you wonder, hasn’t it? Well, you’ll just have to wonder for ever and ever because I’m not going to tell you. >:P Just kidding… I’ll tell you ^.^ Yesterday was the last day of Co-Op for awhile (which was sad), and I thought that I’d do something special with my hair, since it’s been ages and ages πŸ˜› I really need to start doing my hair more often again… But, anyway, I started playing with it, and somehow my hair turned out looking Star Warsish. Coincidentally I was wearing my Star Wars shirt. Imagine that. πŸ˜‰ I didn’t get great pictures of it, I thought about it right before I was headed for bed last night. And when you’ve had a tiring day, and are ready for bed one is not in the best mood for taking pictures, as I’m sure you can surmise πŸ™‚




You probably can’t tell, but I’m wearing my “stardust” eye shadow hereΒ  πŸ™‚ I just couldn’t resist putting it on that morning πŸ˜‰

May the Force be with you!
