Valentines Day Tag

You do not understand that this is what my life is like.

So, Rachel tagged me for this, and even though the day of Hi, Yes, Incase You Didn't Know We Are A Couple And We Have Free Range To Do Whatever We Like In Public Because It's The 14th Of February is long gone, I figured it would still be fun to answer the questions. If you so desire, you could as well!

Fan Month (!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Do you know how long I have been waiting to do this? Ever since Heather first did it, last year (it was last year right? I'm tired. I don't even know anymore).


(And yes, that gif is from The Sound of Music. And yes, I like The Sound of Music. Deal with it).

Epic Reads Tag

Okay, so if yall haven't noticed, recently I have fallen seriously in love. WITH BOOKS (I'm not about to leave my cat filled, bookish, single future behind). So when I was reading Inklined (a blog I used to be waaaay to scared to comment on) I was excited to see Sarah had a tag, about books. And then when I got to the end, she had tagged me. I was like 'naaaahhh.' So I clicked on my name and it bought me to my blog and I was like 'yaaaaaaaaay!'

Life Lessons: Jeremiah 29:11

In 2014, I started at a public, coed high school. I had been home schooled for the four years previously. The year had it's challenges, the biggest being how to make friends (and not because I have no social skills, thanks).

In the end, I settled into a group of people who are nerdy, sort of sporty and the most mixed group I've ever meet. One day, they will be arguing about politics, the next the smallest member will be picked up and carried around while he poses like superman. There are writers, musicians, scientists, smart and average. It doesn't really matter who you are, and thats the best thing.

Blog Posts I Enjoyed Recently

It is time for another bout (is that the right word? It makes it sound like I'm sick or something. "Wild Horse has had a bout of enjoyable blog posts! Not to fear, we think she will soon recover.") of Blog Posts I Enjoyed Recently.

I have to keep doing these because people won't stop writing awesome blog posts! Very inconsiderate. I'm collecting links like mad because if I read something awesome, you should to, and we can all be happy. It does make me feel a bit stalker-ish though. Some of these posts are older.

Horse Frenzy has been my best friend for a long time now, and we have done so much together. She's kind of more like a sister than a best friend.  Sometimes it's hard to stay in contact, and most of the time we go months without seeing each other face to face, but we always pick up where we left off.

Books I Have Eaten Recently (ii)

It's the end of the holidays now (I started school today), so I have been desperately reading ALL THE BOOKS. I can't help it, you know. I go into the library, vowing just to pick up my reserves. THEN THE BOOKS CALL TO ME. And I must bring them home and read them.

Do any of you experience this?

Life Recently

 Our garden is kind of big. Sometimes I leave the house and walk around it. We have 50 scattered fruit tree's, so I generally leave when I am starving to death.

Just kidding, my parents aren't quite that mean. I actually normally leave the house to take pictures, as was the case a few weeks ago.

I'm to shy to look at the camera then put the pictures on the internet. Sorry. I like to hide behind bushes and trees. Or just not look at the camera.

Hunter thinks I'm weird. I think I'm hilarious (but you don't know that because I left the funny photos out and now there is only these three left which is kind of disappointing I guess).

I'm trying to enjoy the last day before school goes back (I start tomorrow, where did the holidays go??). By that I mean eating at weird times, sleeping on the lawn in the tent, reading books and writing a million blog posts.

It rained as well. I like the rain. And when I went outside to enjoy it, I though of all you amazing people you said in the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award you like to dance in the rain (or not). I reflected how weird/awesome it is that we can be in all corners of the world, and still be connected.

I feel so ready for this school year. I am ready to be stretched, I am ready to laugh with my friends and I am ready to do hard things.

Wild Horse is kind of looking forward to school this year (it's one thing to be ready, another to look forward to it). She's doing all her favorite subjects. Unfortunately, 4 out of her 6 subjects are in the 600 block, which happens to be her least favorite block. On the bright side, the 600 block classrooms have the most interesting views.

Bye January, Hey February

Everyone is doing these end-of-month recaps, and I'm here in New Zealand where it is already February. Until today, I hadn't even thought of doing a wrap-up-January kind of post. It still hasn't really hit me properly that January is gone. HOW ARE WE 1/12 THROUGH 2015 ALREADY?

I'm tired and I want to climb into bed and stare at the rain (IT'S RAINING!), so I'm going to try make this post quick.
