A Million Bajillion Pictures

Good news! Yesterday, I woke up. That's good news all by itself, but here's even BETTER news -- I felt good.

To celebrate, I wrote 2,000 words. Then I went back to bed.

Now, today, I still feel good. And so I present ... (dun dun dun) ... ALL THE PICTURES.

Yes. All of them. We will start with the road trip.


We had to get up at 4 AM to make our flight.
Apparently I thought the occasion justified photographic evidence.

Dallas-Fort Worth was also totally rocking
the Escalator to Heaven. You can't really see
it in the pic, but this thing is HUGE. I nearly
missed my flight riding it.
The Dallas-Fort Worth Airport had this totally
awesome mosaic on the floor. Had to take a picture.

Best thing about US airports? The pretzels.

We got authentic Greek food in Austin. I was dubious
at first -- that brown stuff is CAULIFLOWER! -- but I
tried it and loved it. Very different.


This was the day that illness struck with a vengeance.
I had a streaming nose and a splitting headache, but
I was going to see Carlsbad Caverns if it killed me.

So worth it.

And I got in some driving time. Roadtrip = Success.


Alas, I have no pictures of this event. Rest assured that it DID happen. I turned seventeen.
It was pleasant.


No more metal! I celebrated by eating lots
of thing and wearing footie pajamas.


I'm currently very excited for three movies.

Girls with bows will always have a special place in my heart.
Redheaded girls! Yay! (Also, Dr Seuss! Yayer!)
Redheaded girls ... with bows?
June 22 cannot come soon enough.

That brings us to the end of the million bajillion pictures. I will be back soon. WITH WORDS.

An Apology

It's been forever since I blogged. I know that. The thing is, I got home and became horribly ill yet again and fell incredibly behind on everything. Then I spent a couple weeks trying to catch up on play practice, dance and other classes. I discovered four new stories living inside me. I began writing two of them.

It's been a hectic few weeks.

Near the end of last week, my grandpa asked me when I was going to start blogging again. I hit myself on the head and told him I'd do it that weekend. True to my word, I started a post. I was so tired that I was falling asleep trying to write it. I put it away and decided to do it later.

Now, on Wednesday, I am finally blogging. I'm blogging to tell you I'm sorry. My life is in tatters right now. My writing is failing. I'm depressed and exhausted. I don't know when I will be blogging again. It will happen. I WILL give you pictures and updates. Just not yet.

In other news, five more sleeps until my braces come off. Unless I take naps, in which case it will be more sleeps.

Naps. How lovely does that sound?

I love you all, and I really am sorry. Please bear with me a little longer.
