Ludington 2016!

*written yesterday and it wouldn’t post*

I’ve been MIA for a bit now because I’m up at Vacation Lane. We go home today since I work tomorrow morning (plus Olympic Trials!), so I decided to write about all of the fun things I’ve done. I’ll probably add in some pictures later once I get back to my laptop.

  • Took pictures of gorgeous sunsets every single night
  • Caught a bunch of fish. I named them all after people in the new testament. Meet John the Bass Fish (worked out perfectly, I know) 
  • Went tubing and killed it, as per usual. I stayed on for around five minutes and never fell off, even with huge waves, wind, and my dad doing everything he could for it to happen. 
  • Bought a hammock and spent tons of time in it 
  • Went shopping and purchased a sweatshirt and some super secret surprise gifts
  • Took some senior pictures for my brother. He wasn’t exactly willing, oh well
  • Found a toad who sat on my shoulder (and Abby’s) for a good ten minutes 
  • Spent time with the sweetest 12 year old. We played on the equipment that I grew up with  (see saw, merry-go-round, slide), talked a ton, sat in the hammock, watched sunsets, looked at the stars, etc
  • Watched the night sky two days in a row. I love how we can see everything since there’s not light like where I live. I saw at least 15 shooting stars
  • Studied God’s word, especially while mocking.
  • Bandaged my thumb a thousand times. Blech 
  • Took lots of photos but not as many in past years
  • Slurpees and Wesco popcorn
  • Became pro at making Jiffy Pop
  • Caught Pokémon bahaha
  • Boat rides with laughs, beautiful sights, frigging huge houses, and lots of waves

I was nervous going into vacation, but I really really needed it. Ludington/Vacation Lane is a magical place and always will be.

Good & Bad

I thought this was my 50th post this year so I wanted to do something fun for it, then i just realized its the 51st. Anyways, I am doing a list of things I’m good and bad at (mostly sarcastic/funny). I really enjoyed coming up with these! Also it kind of lets you get to know me more 🙂

Things I am good at:

  • over-packing
  • fitting a huge amount of stuff into a small suitcase
  • carrying all the pens (currently 13 in my purse)
  • overthinking to the nth degree
  • playing out every single possible scenario in my head
  • spelling words wrong and mixing up q/d/b/p
  • racking up medical bills
  • pill box filling
  • forgetting
  • being painfully awkward
  • golf cart driving
  • sarcasm, sass, and stubbornness
  • making my bendy joints into creepy arrangements
  • acquiring random bruises
  • assessing and analyzing any type of medical stuff
  • getting injuries
  • sharing gross medical things
  • obsessing over TV shows
  • logic puzzles and brain games
  • leading (!?!?!?!)

Thing I am not so good at:

  • learning through visuals
