So, this one time, at Bible Camp....

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love going to bible camp every year. However, I have to say that the week I just completed takes the cake for the most interesting by far that I've ever attended.

Every year I look forward to the singing, the studies, and the fellowship (and the yummy food!). Yet, I wasn't expecting one thing to happen-my clumsiness seemed to increase ten-fold this week.

The first few days were filled with torrential down pours. I normally like rain, but there was so much that I got pretty sick of it. What really made me hate it even more was the dirt road running through camp. That meant mud, and LOTS of it. It was the second day of camp, and, we were getting ready for dinner. Well, as soon as I stepped out of the craft hut and on to that muddy road I remember thinking, "I am going to fall. There's no way around it. I'm going to fall."

I began to walk, and for whatever reason, I turned my head to look at something, and I'm quite sure it was something shiny...I can't remember for certain, though. Then, my sandals decided that they were going to slide out from under me, and BAM-I came tumbling down. I got covered in mud and grass.

Seriously, my clumsiness plus my ADD is going to be the death of me at some point.

Then, I spent the rest of the week bumping my head. Almost every time I sat up on my bed, or moved, I hit it against the top bunk-and it's a wonder how I managed to not annoy the living daylights out of  the new girl, Alyx, in the bunk above me.

 Then, at the awards ceremony last night, I got the award for the "Double Digit Head bumper". Total times I bumped my head was at least 10-12. That's probably a downside of being taller than the average girl-everything is too short and your noggin suffers greatly. Yet somehow my friend Tiki, who's about the same height managed not to bump her head as much.

I think it's safe to say that I probably lost some IQ points this week.

I had become so scatterbrained. Seriously, my book for camp seemed like it kept growing legs and walking away. I would put it somewhere and think I knew where it was, but when I came back it wasn't there. I think I  had a few different people come back and give me my book. My bible even decided to disappear for a short time until lo and behold, my sister somehow had it in her purse.

So, that sort of describes my week at bible camp. And needless to say because of these things and other things that are probably best left unsaid, it will be a week I'll remember for a LONG time. :)

Questions and Answers #1

For this blog, I'm just going answer some questions asked to me by people on Facebook. I'll be answering five of them today. If you're ever interested in asking me a random question, please, don't hesitate to ask! There'll be more like these in the future. So, here goes!

1. What is your biggest fear?
Well, that's a little hard to say. I'm kind of afraid of centipedes and wasps. Reason being because I've had bad experiences with them. I've been bit twice in my sleep by a centipede (yes, they do bite and it hurts). Also, I've been stung by a yellow jacket, and I almost went into anaphalaxis. It was pretty bad.

I guess I'm also intimidated by a lot of things. I'm not as bad as I used to be, but sometimes I feel really awkward and strange in social situations. It kind of goes back to a learning disability that I have that kind of causes me some issues with those sort of things. But, I'm definitely getting better and people can't always tell. So, I guess that's a good thing!

2. What is your dream job?
I've changed my mind so many times about this sort of thing. When I was little, I wanted to be a ballerina. Then I wanted to be an etymologist. Then I wanted to be a meteorologist. Then I wanted to be veterinarian. Then a ballet teacher. Then a counselor. Then a singer.

At this point now, I have absolutely idea. However, I'd have to say that as far as right now, I would absolutely love to work in a bridal store. That to me would be wonderful. Yet, I'm happy with the job I have now. As far as a lifetime career goes though, I'd be perfectly happy being a published writer and a mom. That sounds wonderful to me.

3. Where do you see yourself living when you are older?
I honestly don't know. Somewhere in the south, I hope. It'll probably be here in Georgia, in Alabama, or even Tennessee. So, who knows. We'll just see where life takes me.

4. How many kids do you want?
More than one. I've thought about this so many times. But I just keep coming back to having more than just one. I'd honestly be okay with having a sort of large family.

5. What is your favorite childhood memory?
I'm not really sure. There's just so many to pick from.

6. What was your favorite toy?
I always loved Barbies. I played with them for years and years. I still like them, but I do more collecting than anything.

7. What are your favorite movies?
My favorite movies are mainly Disney films, Studio Ghibli flims, and few others. I love the Princess Bride movie. It is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I also love Charlie Chaplain films. They're so interesting-especially because you can see where film actually started. I also love the Harry Potter films, Twilight, and Tim Burton movies. As you can see, I like a lot of movies.

8.What are your favorite books?
My favorites are as follows: Harry Potter, Twilight, Uglies, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Secret Garden, Matched, Fruits Basket, Hunger Games, Monster High, and Nevermore.

9. Do you have a nickname? If so, what is it?
When I was in high school, one of my good friends gave me the nickname Takara-Chan. Ever since then, I've used it in various ways for different things. It means treasure in Japanese. My other nickname is simply 'Chels'.

10. What kind of makeup do you use?
I mainly use CoverGirl makeup. I really like their products, and their mascara is amazing. I used to use Maybelline, but once I tried the LashBlast length mascara, I didn't want to use anything else.

Welcome to My New Blog!

Welcome to my brand new blog! I will still be continuing my religious blog, but I just wanted one to discuss my daily life and experiences. I hope that through this new blog that I will be able to:

1. Get a better idea of where my life is supposed to go, but I honestly have no idea. All I know is that I want to have a family and write.

2. Improve my writing skills. I want to be a published author one day.

3. Vent, share opinions, and help others.

My blog will cover a wide variety of topics. It will talk about interesting things I find out about, books I've read, movies I've seen, my opinions on things, life's quirks, trials, and blessings. (And, I'm sure much more too!)

Also, for a future blog, I'd like my readers to ask me questions which I will answer in a future blog article! So, here we go! Thanks for reading! More to come!

Much love and blessings,

Chelsea :)
