25 Days of Christmas

Tis the Season! Today I played my Christmas carols and attempted to sing (not the best singer... can't carry a tune) and I didn't realize how difficult it was to play and sing at the same time. Anyway, enjoy!

Today I also visited Santa. It was a lot of fun and it wasn't crowded at all, which was awesome. :) My scanner isn't working (and I think I ruined my memory card trying to get it to work... great, another $20 I have to spend), so I will show you the phone picture version and when I can scan Monday at work, I'll post.

MY BOOK IS NOW IN MY SCHOOL LIBRARY! I asked them if they could put it in their collection and they said absolutely. I am so happy. ^_^ It made my day. I started this new idea. I'm taking a little break on publishing for a year and a half. However, I'm definitely not going to stop writing. I'm going to start a writing journal, with entries like this:

I was asked today by someone on MDJunction:

Tell me all about Green Bay please- would love to hear about it.

Flag football- that has intrigued me?! What is that?

So I replied:

Green Bay is awesome! After I'm done college, I plan on moving out there. It's remote, but it has the hustle and bustle of Lambeau Field (the home of the Green Bay Packers football). Lambeau Field is amazingly huge -- it has three levels and the stadium has room for 2 million people, I want to say. Regardless, it's full on game day. There are many wildlife sanctuaries, the one I went to last August was so pretty and serene. It was 100 acres (I'd say at least) of land with ponds, rivers and many trees and plants. The animals are allowed to run free there and they look so happy there. Also, there are many historical places -- Wisconsin is full of history. The city just leaves me speechless and brings me to tears of joy. I will send you some picture albums. :)

Although I wrote about my trip for my book (came in yesterday!) I am just overwhelmed with joy when people ask me to describe the town. It just makes me so happy and leaves me speechless or not so much speechless, but there are many emotions I cannot put my words to. However, I did remember this experience that I forgot to write about for my book:

Is this bus going to Ash-www-
Ashwaubenon (wau is pronounced as wow). Yes, yes it is.
Now whenever I think about going back to the hotel to swim and meet the different truckers and guests, I cannot help but think about going to Bay Beach Wildlife Reserve and meeting the other buses at the junctions, I will never forget how to pronounce Ashwaubenon.

I tried singing today while playing the organ. It is hard to play and sing at the same time. I felt a little self conscious because I do sound awful, but it sort of felt good to sing Christmas songs as I played along. Of course, it is going to take more practice and I am not a performance major, so this is just fun for me. I want to write my own songs for organ and guitar, it is just trying to figure out how to write the music to go along with lyrics.


  1. I admire your bravery and willingness to put yourself out there with your nascent skills!!!! Brava, Kiddo!!!!!

    Love and blessings,

  2. It was fun. I use music as a therapy really. I know I'm not going to be the greatest musician, but it's fun and it takes a load off. I was thinking of writing poetry and putting it to organ and guitar (read it of course, maybe sing some, but I like reading).
