So, after failing twice, I finally passed my knowledge test (with a 100%, I might add :) ). Now yes, you may be wondering "why is a senior taking her knowledge test...shouldn't she have her license already?" I've been sort of lazy amidst all of my school work to get my license and while I have already taken driver's ed, I had to get a waiver for my knowledge test because I didn't have enough time to take it before driver's ed. Sooo now that it is summer, I was able to take my knowledge test and pass...yippee! Now I can focus on getting my license, so I can finally be free as a bird and drive myself places! I hate having to depend on my parents or other people. It drives me nuts! After having this wonderful start to my day, I can now look forward to the rest of my day which will be even more exciting. I get to hang out with some friends from school and go see the new Pixar movie, Brave! I am totally looking forward to it. If you get a chance to see it, you most definitely should. I have never been disappointed by any Pixar movies! I hope you all have a great start to your weekend.
This is my super happy face after passing my knowledge test. Woohoo!
Good morning y'all! I hope your week has been going swell so far. I'm happy to say that my week has been going quite well, and this is mainly because I was able to go out and score myself a new cruiser bike. I love riding bikes and I find cruiser bikes to be so cute and vintage looking. So, after I finished up volunteering at the animal shelter on saturday, my dad and I headed over to Wal-mart (yes, I surprisingly found a very cute bike at Wal-mart...who knew?). It's a Schwinn cruiser bike and it rides perfectly! I might take it out today for another bike ride if it continues to remain nice outside. It's super nice too because it has gears, so if I'm on a hill (it's pretty hilly here in Washington) I can switch to a lower gear to help pedal up the hill much easier and faster. I'll put a picture down below of my fabulous new bike!
Aside from getting my bike I have just been relaxing, preparing to get my license, and completing a few things to help with college applications...not too much. I recently just watched The Notebook for the first time. Yes, I know, it's ridiculous that I haven't seen it. But I can now say I have and I fell in love with it. It is now one of my favorite movies. Ryan Gosling was also rather attractive in that movie. ;) Hmm...not too much else is going on, I'd really love to go shopping soon! It's been a while, but I need to save up some money in order to do that. :) Anyways, that's all I have for today! I hope you all have a great day!
My lovely new Schwinn bike (we got the basket as an added, extra cute accessory :) ).
So, I recently had the opportunity to purchase a pair of Saltwater Sandals! For those of you who don't know a thing about these sandals, they are super comfortable, waterproof, leather sandals that come in a variety of colors. They're often worn by younger kids (I wore them when I was little!), however they are made for adults too! I love them because, well as stated previously, they are comfortable and waterproof, but they also have a retro, chic look to them! Wearing them brings me back to my childhood. :) If you'd care to read more about them, here's the website I purchased mine from: http://mysaltwatersandals.com/.
Hello all! It's been a while, but I'm finally out of school and I can now call myself a senior! Yippee! I couldn't be any happier.
To start off my summer, I got to travel with my immediate family to Florida (Disneyworld and Universal Studios). I love amusement parks, especially the Disney parks. It was so fun to get to be around my nieces and nephews and getting to see their happy, smiling faces at the parks. Along with Disneyworld I mentioned we got to go to Universal Studios. We spent a day there and that's where The Wonderful Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located along with a variety of crazy fast roller coasters, my favorite. It was neat getting to go there! I was little disappointed by the size of Harry Potter World, but it was still very creative and it felt like I was right in the movie. Ah I loved that trip and I wish I could just go back and have that trip all over again. I love Florida and the warm, humid weather there. I've decided that if ever given the opportunity, I would love to live in the south some day. Call me crazy, but I love warm weather and I'm tired of living in the Northwest!
Now that I'm back from my trip it feels so nice to be able to relax with little summer homework. Now all that I have to think about is college and preparing for that this summer and I need to work on getting my license! Otherwise, I'm just going to sit back, relax and do whatever I wasn't able to do during the school year. :) I'm considering watching a lot of Netflix that's for sure, mainly because it has a lot of tv shows and a few movies I love. Lately I've been really into watching The Twilight Zone, Parks & Rec, and I might start watching LOST all over again (I miss that show!)
Anyways, that's all I have for now. I'll post a few pictures from my trip below!
Lots of love,
