I sit beside the fire and think of all that I have seen, of meadow-flowers and butterflies In summers that have been; Of yellow leaves and gossamer in autumns that there were, with morning mist and silver sun and wind upon my hair. I sit beside the fire and think of how the world will be when winter comes without a spring that I shall ever see. For still there are so many things that I have never seen: in every wood in every spring there is a different green. I sit beside the fire and think of people long ago, and people who will see a world that I shall never know. But all the while I sit and think of times there were before, I listen for returning feet and voices at the door.

-J.R.R. Tolkien, from The Fellowship of the Ring

I've Been Tagged!

1) each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves
2) people who're tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things & post these rules
3) at the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged & list their names
4) don't forget to leave a comment telling them they're tagged & asking them to read your blog

Eight things about me:

1) I love the outdoors. I find tons of inspiration in woody settings, forest-type landscapes, etc. I don't know why, but I always feel close to god when I see that type of landscape, and I feel really full and peaceful. It's crazy... I know!

2) My favorite verse is Psalm 46:10- Be still and know that I am God. The first time I read that verse, I almost started crying. I was really stressed at the time, and when I read it, I felt like God was talking straight to me. Now, anytime I feel mixed up, upset, stressed, or just need to feel God, I just start conteplating that verse and all that it contains in those 8 words, and I am immediately calmed. It's an awesome feeling!

3) I love songs that tell stories. Songs like 'American Dream' by Casting Crowns, and 'The Christmas Shoes' are my favorites. For some reason, it seems to me that it's great how people can write a whole story in 3 minutes.

4) I love learning about how people think. I like to get inside people's minds; see how they think, and how they react to different situations. It fascinates me! Usually, if I get really good, I can anticipate what people are going to do, or what they're going to say.

5) If I could have any job in the world, I would act. I love acting and portraying other people. I know that it's a very risky business, because most people don't make it, but hey... "Reach for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars!"

6) I think I was born in the wrong time. I would love to have been born in the monarchy times of Western Europe (France, the UK, something like that.)

7) I detest my name!!!! I find the name 'Brittany' incredibly boring and repulsive. I wish I could have a name like 'Summer', 'Hadassah', or 'Brook'. (Hadassah is Esther's jewish name) Because I was adopted, my parents could've changed my name, because I was named Britney at birth, but my mom and dad thought I'd have enough changes without changing my name. How wrong they were!!!

8) I love to have adventures. Going places I've never been, or looking through an old antique shop with lots of small nick-nacks that wouldn't matter, but are awesome to look at seem like treasures to me. I would love to go on adventure like those that you read about in books, but since it is unlikely, I will leve that to my imagination, which happens to be huge! Sometimes I can even look at people and make up adventures about them, based upon their unique looks. I love looking at people that look totally different than the norm!

Well, that's all about me. Don't forget to tag all ur friends!

May 21, 2007

Well, it's another week, full of lots of things to do!!! Today my dad picked me up from school and we went to Madisyn and picked up my little sisters from Angela's house. As soon as they saw us, they started yelling for us and clapping their hands and shouting... the whole shebang. They were overjoyed to be going home, but they couldn't stop talkng about all they had done with ''Angie and all her kids''. They went to see Shrek the Third, they went to the zoo, and went to Noah's ballgames. Needless to say, they had a great time, as did Dad and I... we saw Spiderman 3, Shrek the Third, and we went to the racetrack with my bff in Indy. We're all ready for my mom and grandparents to come home. They've been gone a week, but we missed them from the first day that they left. It seems like my mom had a gr8 time, though. She got to see 2 of my sisters' birthparents, visit with Madisyn, Loudnie, Barbara, John, Mirlande, and everyone up in the mountains, see Ruuska Village, go to the beach, and a whole lot of other things. They actually left Haiti this morning, but they're staying at the airport until tomorrow, and then coming in at 12:30. I get to skip school so that I can help my dad get the girls ready and help them at the airport.
Well, I think i'm going to go to bed. I've got a full day tomorrow, and I was tired at elven o'clock this morning! c ya...

It's Friday!!!

Wow! What a week! I know that I haven't posted for a very long time (patty, this is for you!) but I've been extremely busy with school and what not. My mom left for Haiti on Tuesday (the 15th) and she took the girls to her friend, Angela's house while she's gone. My dad and I talked to them tonight, and they were over-joyed to talk to us. They went to the zoo, and they were so excited to talk about all that they've done. Karleigh asked my dad if he would come and hold her.... i thought that was sooo sweet! Angela said that all three of the girls had had melt-downs at the beginning of the week, but once they started playing with her kids and getting more used to being away from 'Mommy', they stopped and calmed down.
I'm kind of scarred, because this coming Thursday in Biology, we have to disect a FROG!!! I really don't want to, but I think we're going to do it in partners, so my partner is going to be someone who doesn't mind touching the frog, because I won't!!!
I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, because my dad, me, and my bff Heather are all going to the Indianapolis raceway to watch the qualifying rounds for the Indy 500. It's supposed to be really sunny and warm, so it'll be a perfect day for it. We're leaving at 9:00, and they don't end until 6, but I think we're going to go eat and do some other stuff while we're out, so e probably won't be back until late
Well, I think that's all I have! I'll most likely post tomorrow after we get back! C ya!!!

May 05, 2007

Well, today was the first day that I've been out of the house in quite a while. We went out to eat with my older brother and his girlfriend at Applebee's. My food was great (I got a Crispy Orange Chicken Bowl... my favorite!) but my mom's and Suzy's was terrible! They each had steak in their meal, and Suzy's consisted of fat only, and my mom's was so tough that she couldn't bite into it. I felt sorry for them, because they had hardly anything to eat!
Afterwords, we went to Wal Mart and picked out a couple things for Papa Bo and Mama Liz (my little sisters' birthparents) because my mom will be seeing them when she goes to Haiti... in 9 days! She's leaving the 15th. Anyway, it wasn't all that exciting, but I bought a new watch in the process! Its really pretty... i love it. Well, I think my mom is going to need this computer, because hers is really wanting to crash... it's going crazy!!! well, anyway, c ya l8r!
