Too long...? I think so... and murderous tests

I know, it has been way too long. And I am really sorry...
The thing is, I have been busy.
Really busy.
Unless, you think two tests (science and history) and a shopping trip in ONE day (plus all my other school) is not busy...
Well, if that's what you think, you need to s-l-o-w d-o-w-n.
Literally.

Oh, those test were so hard. UGH, especially the science test. :P I was learning about genetics and punnet squares and whatever else was in that chapter which I have no idea what it was. For heavens sake, it's over! I won't ever have to be forced to read the module ever again...


Good thing, because I wouldn't. Not in a million years.
It actually wasn't that bad to read.
But the test was MURDEROUS! I am not even kidding. I felt like dying.
And the fact that I had to not only do that test, but do a whole 'nother test for history about
Get ready for it...
BATTLES!

Face it, I am the worst person in the entire world at remembering who won each battle, what happened in each, who was the general, etc. etc.
And it wasn't just a few battles. There were more than 20!
Can you guess what the chapter was about!?

If you guessed the worst war in American History...
You'd be right.

But, if you guessed the Civil War.
You would be even more right.

Buuuuut, now that those test are over... FOREVER!
Other than that, I have just had normal school... Oh, and math. Which isn't normal for me.

I really stink at it. I can never remember how to do this problem just right. I try! I really do! But I just can't seem to get it right...
And we won't even go into how many I get wrong each day... ;)

Here I am, sitting at my living room couch (well, it isn't exactly my couch...) with my laptop, listening to music... (All American Girl- Carrie Underwood, if you're really that interested...) with my science test all ready to be graded (not looking forward to seeing that score...) and with my history book lying askew on my other side... Oh, and of course that random blanket bunched up on part of my askew history book... ;) Writing this post.
Yeah, you get the picture...

Anyway, I hope this post was somewhat interesting or entertaining...

So, the moral of the post is... Don't EVER take two test in one day. It's definitely NOT goof for your health, day, and hands... (not to mention your brain!)


OH! And please vote for me in the photo contest! See the end of this post for more details! =)

Stories!

Haha, here are some new ones. They are quite a bit shorter. The second and third are completely hers. Word-for-word.
First one... I helped her out a little bit. ;)

These were directed (typed by me) by my little sister, Lydia, (age 3)

They are ADORABLE! <3


Once upon a time a girl died. And someone came, and he was going to kiss her to make her live again. But he didn’t know she died of smallpox, so then he died.
The End.

Once upon a time a little baby died and it wanted a crib and naptime and it went on E’s lap. And when in time to e and her was alive and e sat her on her lap.
The End

Once upon a time a little baby died, and it went in its crib and it flied out of the window. And went on a tree. And it got stuck on the tree, and it’s mama got it down and mama flied out of the windew and got it her down. And it went on a number. Then it ride on the couch to **enter name of a place*?* and someone killed a bear. And someone had to take a nap by its crib on the porch and its mama took it out. It went on a stick! And it sat down on the tree for a while. And it went on e’s lap, and went on the tree. Then it got buried. And everyone live happily ever after!
The End.

?I said to enter a place because I can't share the real place. Sorry!
Apparently, she is very interested in dead babies.
Oh *gasp* how morbid!

I ♥ Snow

I do love snow. It's so sparkly, and glittery, and beautiful.
The only downside is that when there is snow, it's cold out. I hate cold. And then the beautiful will turn into brown slushy grossness.

But, while we have the beautiful, why not enjoy it?
I did a photoshoot of the snow today, and I love some of the pictures I got. And something really-super cool, is I mastered the art of bokeh!! Well, maybe not mastered it. But I did figure out how to do it! I am super excited about this, though. :)

Beware, there are a boatload of pics. :-/

Like, my favorite of all the ones I took!




Little Bokeh!
Before...

After!


This pic almost looks like I added the 'drawing'. But I didn't. This is how it actually turned out! 









This is kind of weird. But cool. :) I think it's peeled paint... ;)







This was the outfit I was wearing. :D





Love! <3






This is so pretty! <3













LOVE <3 I like how the middle is clear, but the front and back are blurry, but still visible.



One of my faves. I really like how clear it is in the front, and how blurry it is in the back, but the background it's still visible. :D


Here is another I made... Just because... ;)
What do you think about it


Any favorites?
If you looked at all the pictures, comment 'picture-lover'. :)
Editing used: Picnik. Used 'Auto-fix' on almost all. Nothing else except text (watermarking). NO STEALING.
