Breaking the Monotony ; August 29, 2008

Mood: lovely
Listening to: D.C. R.E.T.O.
Reading: (in school:) The Inferno (Dante), Surprised By Joy & The Pilgrim's Regress (C.S. Lewis)

I lied. And broke my promise to blog this summer.

Yes, summer is over, my senior year of high school has begun, and my, what a summer it was. I had so much to do that I actually forgot about my website, and here it has sat, unspoiled, for two and a half months.

First, my favorite events of the summer.
1. Mission trip to Guatemala!
2. Church youth conference!
3. Family trip to the mountains for 4 days.

Now, my favorite new things from the summer.
1. Wall•E — the best Disney/Pixar movie ever!
2. Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox — what I thought was the best AF book so far. I definitely liked the time travel element...made my brain hurt trying to figure it out. And I liked how it tied the whole series together.
3. D.C. R.E.T.O. — a Christian, Spanish, rap/hip-hop/dance/techno music group. YES! Discovered it while in Guatemala...search them on Youtube to see some music videos.
4. Beijing Olympics — a big historical sort of event, fun to watch, cool that China won more golds than the US, fun to root for Michael Phelps and Nastia Liukin. :)

Hopefully I'll blog more often from now on, but that's not a promise!

P.S. Yay for Sarah Palin. Too bad my 18th birthday just misses the election cut-off by 6 weeks!
