I have found a way to give myself an headache...accidentally, of course. I was thinking of a book idea, but then I thought 'STOP!' and I started to fight the feeling, and I got a headache.

I feel guilty. I remember the formings of the ideas, but I haven't developed it yet. I feel kind of guilty about it. I can't decide whether to develop the story, or leave it be until I catch up on writing. What do you guys think?

Tomorrow is the start of VBS (Vacation Bible School) at my church. A day camp through out the week for those in PreK-5th grade. Sine I am to old to be a camper, I'll be a Junior counselor.
It is Hard to believe it is my third year of helping already! I remember when I first started.

2010- My Mom was always the Rec leader. I loved to go to that class because I would get to see my Mom. So In knew that I wanted to be junior counselor with her. That was a fun year. I remember the last day. We were doing the mento and coca-cola experiment. We had tubes which we would stick the mentos in. Then we would pull the pin, run, and watch the coke blow sky-high. Well, we were doing four at a time. So the four of us (me and the other junior counselors) were getting ready. Well, VJ accidentally pulled his pin. The other two noticed and ran, but I didn't. He tried to stop it with his thumb. I got sprayed with coca-cola.

2011- I decided to help with Rec again. That year was HOT! So we didn't do as many running activities, but more science activities. We made slime one day, and we also made ice cream on the last day.

This year- This year, I decided to do something different. I'm helping the littlest kids, and I believe my friend Julia will be helping as well. This is going to be a fun year!

Ah....summer. I'm not officially on summer break yet. I'm almost done with school though. This summer, instead of making a list of activities I want to do, I set myself two goals. I think I can do it.

Goal #1: Learn to Bat Left Handed
I am one-hundred percent right-handed. No doubt about it. Everything I do I'm doing it right handed. Writing, throwing, and batting. In softball, there is a hit called 'The Slap'. What you do, is when the ball is being pitched, you run toward it and sort of "slap" the ball. It normally does toward the Third Base man. Guess which batters normally do 'The Slap'. Left Handers. While Right handers can slap, it doesn't work as well. The ball would probably go toward the First base man, which is what we don't want. Nobody on our team is left handed. So I decided that over the summer, during sort of the break in the season, I was going to teach myself how to bat lefty. Of course, I would still be a righty, but also a lefty. It is said that:
1: Lefties tend to trip up the pitcher since there aren't a lot of them
2: Lefties are closer to first base then the righties, so they don't have to take an extra step
I think I can do it. I'm going little by little. Here is my plan
1: Find out what the batting stance for lefties is (Probably the same for righties\s, just in reverse)
2: Practice swinging leftie
3: Once it stops feeling weird, try hitting balls leftie
So there is Goal #1

Goal #2: WRITE!
The fact is, I have a lot of book ideas, and I'm still thinking of some! This normally wouldn't be a bad thing. But right now, it is. I'm not writing them fast enough. Remember that book idea I had back in April? Sandy Zendas? I have had four more book ideas since. One of them I thought of two days ago! So I also need to do A LOT of writing. I need to write like my life depends on it!

Yesterday was the day. I got confirmed. I'm now in charge of my faith. Here is my day from yesterday.
On Saturday, we actually had a confirmation dinner, where all the confirmans and their families come for a dinner. My family and I shared a table with my friend and his family.
We shared our verses and what they meant to us. Sort of like our speeches. Every ones went well. Some lasted ten seconds, maybe less. Most lasted half a minute. One or two lasted nearly a minute....maybe two.
Well, I woke up the next day shaking, thinking 'This is it.'. I got up and got ready. I had to be there at ten, an hour before the service. So my mom and cousin went with me while my dad, sister, grandparents, and the rest of my cousins came about an hour later. I got in my robe and waited in the back of the church. We walked up the isle and into our pews. We walked up to the alter and knealed. We recieve our candles and we went back to the pews.

Of course, that was just the service. Afterwards we got panera and cupcakes and went home for some fun. I got a fancier charm braclet which is something I've always wanted. Yes, it was great.
