Getting closer to it... :(

The end of Lagoons season is getting closer and closer...
and man, it's gone by soo fast!
I just realized that Wednesday will be the last time all of the lagoon departments will be together. That makes me want to cry just thinking about it, because i have made so many good friends. :( And next year chances are that we won't be here. So that will be the last time i will get to see many of my new friends.
Anyways, on Wednesday is the End Of Season Banquet. All of us will eat dinner, play games, and watch the end of season video. There are going to be a bunch of different clips of everyone in each department, then of all of us together. Im probably going to cry. Haha.
I saw the videos the games department put in, and im in like 6 of them. :) But im just going to miss everyone tons.

School is good. :) no complaints. Ive made more friends, and already learned a few things. Life is fantasticcccc! Haha. And that's pretty much everything i have to say right now.
We need to have a family party soon i think!!! Okay. Bye. :)

Love, moi. :)

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

So i think it's a miracle...

During the summer of 09 i spent a lot of my time working and hanging out at Lagoon.
I had an amazing time, and made many many friends who i will trust forever. But, i also made one enemy. Her name is Selica. Me and her started hating each other quite awhile ago, over the silliest thing. A guy. To make it worse, he wasn't even worth it. So over the summer every time i saw her i gave her the dirty looks, and she gave them back. Everyone knew we hated each other, and they thought it was funny. Most of them were on my side, so not many liked her. THEN, on the first day of school i walked into the main lobby with my two best friends at side, and saw HER. My heart stopped and i could tell hers did too. It was one thing having an enemy you thought you were never going to see again, but then to have to go to school with them every single was something else. Every time i saw her in the hallway i just wanted to hit her. But, that all changed.
Yesterday morning when i was sitting in the employee kitchen at work, she walked in. And actually came and sat right across from me and was staring at me. And i was doing everything but looking back at her. Then she said "hey, we go to school together.", and i said "um, yeah. I noticed. I see you in the hallway a lot...". It was an awkward silence for awhile. Then she said "look, im really sorry about this summer. I'm sorry i started all of this. I wanted to do this earlier but i have a huge ego and a lot of pride. But then i realized this was the thing to do." so i accepted her apology, and said sorry myself. We talked about what happened, and why we let it get sooo out of hand. We were just both immature. And we both know it. But then, out of nowhere she just said "So, i am mormon. But im not an active mormon, anymore. Actually, i am absolutely against the church now days. The things they said to me..they were just not right and made me feel like god hated me, just because i had a lip piercing." she went more in detail about what was said. But that is the basic outline. then she added, "and i want to become baptist christian, but i just don't know anyone who can help me find out more about the religion and help me become involved in it. ANYWAYS, what religion are you?" And i told her everything. I told her about my church. And what we believed. And i'm telling you, ive never seen her smile so brightly and big. It made my day. Then break time was over, and we were both walking back to our games and she said "hey adrie, thanks. I can't believe i ever hated your. You are one of the nicest people i know. And i can already trust you. Lets talk about this more at school." then she hugged me. :)
God brings special people into our lives for a reason. I think she was brought into mine to get closer to god, and to be an amazing friend. I know this is going to go somewhere :) yay! And now everyone who knows we hated each other can only say "wow, who would've thought?"..

That's all for now. :)

When I go for a drive I like to pull off to the side of the road, turn out the lights, get out and look up at the sky. I do this to remind me that I'm really, really tiny in the grand scheme of things. It makes me feel serene in a way I never thought I'd be. I am grounded, I am humbled, I am one with everything. If you ever hear someone say you are huge, look at the moon, look at the stars, look at the sun, look at the ocean and the desert and the mountains and the sky. Say I am just a speck of dust inside a giant's eye.
