Third's a charm.

It took me three tries to click "Publish New Entry" in the drop menu.
Mom got a new mattress for me from one of her friends...it's the first time I've gotten a new one since I can remember. Yes, I have had the same mattress since I was a little kid. I could get in an out of bed without thinking or even waking up, because I was so used to it. I even developed a neat little rolling jump that took almost no effort, put me on my feet, and was completely silent. I've always loved sneaking around my own house.
Of course, this one's about a foot higher than the old one. And it's squishier, so when I roll to support myself on my arms they kind of...sink into it and I just flop to the floor. Things are tense in the bedroom these days.
Managed to get a copy of Hard Times. Now I just have to read it before school starts. I'm doing OK.
I'm also reading ADAM by Ted DeKker and The Best 371 colleges or something.
Oh, yeah. Colleges. My mom's freaking out and it's making me nervous. Doesn't help that I'm aiming at schools like Brown and MIT and also that I'm not completely sure what I even WANT in a school.
Clemson is like the creepy kid that I'm trying to avoid. And Winthrop is a joke because I live 10 minutes from there.
Actually, Clemson is my backup plan. I wouldn't feel terrible if I went, and a lot of my friends are there.
Katie made some interesting invitational choices for her get together last night. I had a great time. Oh yeah. I chopped up a fallen tree for firewood with gardening shears and a hand saw. There was a lot of lighter fluid involved.
Today, in youth group:
We said goodbye to our seniors and our summer interns.
We played the most furious game of Bombardment ever. It was ridiculous.
I only got hit with a ball once. But it's three times if you count the ball that bounced off the ground, and the ball that Ben threw and pelted my face off. Neither of those count, though, so it was only once!
I seriously thought I might have a concussion for a moment. Plus my lower face was numb. Bahahaha.
Um...I played with some of the toddlers that the leaders bring with them. One baby laughed at my dancing EVEN THOUGH HIS EYES WERE CLOSED AND HE COULD NOT SEE ME.
I actually have enough white Boys State shirts to wear a different one every school day for a week, if you count my Girls State shirt. And if I use the two grey Athletics shirts, I can hit Saturday and Sunday too. Score.
My internet is giving out over here, so I'm going to cut this short before things get really hairy. Later.

I always forget to update this thing these days. Poo on me.
I saw a fantastic movie a few nights ago. I'm going to have to compare it to Sweeny Todd because it's a musical, and it's also dark and gothy and generally cynical in nature.
Yes, I know that I just used improper grammar with so many "ands". I know it's wrong, and I do it purposefully to express that I'm rambling with excitement. It's a literary device.
It's like Sweeny Todd, but I liked it much better. In fact, I watched it with a crazy Todd fan (trust me, the guy pretends to be British and has a Lord of the Rings chess set, not to mention "action figures" of various famous characters throughout history. Like Sherlock Holmes.) and he even liked it better.
Repo! The Genetic Opera. Obviously not very well known in popular culture. But the music was pretty much all kick-ass, and the dramatic aspect was not toned down at all.
And, yes, Paris Hilton is in this movie. I respect her a tiny bit more just for playing a part. She does pretty well.
The first song kind of explains the current social state of affairs, with the mass population addicted to surgery and therefore relying on the painkiller called Zydrate. The second song is my favorite, especially the finale. And the last song kind of explains the hold that GeneCo has on their paid murderer: blackmail.
Maybe a better post later.

I got very lucky on youtube one time and found a music video made of clips from Halo and this song. After that, my friend Kierra just-so-happened to buy their new two-disk album (joyjoyjoy) and let me have it for a while. Kamelot rocks my socks; they are, in my opinion, the best example of symphonic metal. Except it's more opera metal, isn't it? The album was called Ghost Opera, as is one of the songs on it, and that seems like a pretty good way of describing them.
Swim practice starts tomorrow. Gotta get up early, like I tried to do this morning. Funny story, actually.
Well, not really.
Anyway, I can't stay on any longer, so later.
So many prayers!

Thanks guys. It means a lot!
So, the highlight of the trip, beyond meeting family, living on a 60 foot yacht for 3 days, taking beautiful pictures, and watching Grim Adventures in Spanish, was that I was reunited with a dear old friend from my childhood. Once, long ago, I was in a store in Puerto Rico, and I was thirsty, so mom bought me a can of Old Colony Piña, which is the best pineapple drink I'd ever had or have had since.
Piña was just a long lost memory to me; all I could remember was the taste and the bright yellow can. BUT! Before I got on the boat I mentioned above, we went to a little bakery type shop (with legendary sandwiches, word has it,). Mom recommended some drink called Old Colony, which did not strike my memory, but when I saw the can, I knew.
And when I drank it, I believed.
