We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains, :)

Hello Bloggers.,

Im pretty sure the only people that actually read my blogs are Emma, My best friend who is at this moment forcing me to update my blog and my mom. :)

So school is going so fast, almost like Mr. Rand when he gets started going through Math anwsers.. I can never keep up.
I can't believe that were already a month in, and I haven't blogged once, whoops.!

I was reading this book and this is a quote for your day
" I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure - try and please everybody"

School, is crazy and I'm not even playing any sports at the moment. but with all the homework.. omgosh.. its ridiculous.. you would think the teachers would give us a break.. yeah right.

So pretty much Music class Sing-a-longs are the best. Mark plays the piano like pro-ly :)
and "we" as in me Savanna and sometimes Leanne will sing..
If you go out and ask somebody my age their current favorite song at the moment you will get Eminems and Sean Kingston's and Beyonce's and Rhianna's and 39486398 other people..
but come ask me would you'.
actually I will save you the trip

I don't know if this will work as in turn into a link.. if not just copy and paste in the little bar thingy where the address to the website is.. (this is why I am not in computer tech.)
HA :)

This is pretty much just a catch up blog. ..
nothing that important...

So heres something more important.. I guess.

I've been thinking about this... and right now I really have to step up and let God come into my life.  I know he's always there for me and I really want to know that but I don't always appreciate it as much as I should. I need to live up to his expectations and I know that I'm not doing that right now and Im going to need help especially when I'm surrounded  with those who do not think like that..
I can tell he's really trying to show me his power and amazingness, I may be looking but I might not be SEEING... there is a difference.
I was talking to my friend who I have been friends with since we were tiny little tots. but we lost contact over the years until 1 or 2 years ago when we reconnected with my most favorite place in the whole wide world Malagash bible camp.
 I haven't seen her for a year since that time we reconnected there and I really wanna catch up.
I want to go vist her in PEI but who knows if thats ever going to happen. So we were talking and she said she was going to be in Halifax over the weekend for the Dave Crowder band concert at the rock church there. Amazing as it is that she happens to be in Halifax is that My Mom and Dad and Sister and I are going to that exact Concert..
So I do get to see her and reconnect and I am ecstatic.
Now that is what I call a God thing.. something you cannot explain why it is happening but you know its happening for a reason.

peace out.

Hi all. :)
School has started and life is moving ahead full speed, no turning back.

The past weekend I was at camp with all my fellow choristers of the Annapolis Valley Honour Choir. :)
I was reluctant to go at first, but as every year before this I had an amazing time. Singing for hours on end, participating in workshops and learning new things plus catching up with all y old choir friends and making friends with the 1st years. :)

At the end of the Choir Camp weekend we always sing in the same church, Its amazing really what we as a choir of 50 some kids from grades 7-12 can have 1 practice on tuesday and then go to camp for like 1 day and come together to be ready for a performance on sunday. Just being with those kids the ones that have the same passion for music as you is incredible but what we can accomplish is just awesome.

One thing that I really wanted to write about was an exercise that we did, it was truly amazing. The exercise was basically we were numbered 1,2,1,2... and the 1's started out on whatever note the felt like singing and held it until they were out of breath and whenever the 2's felt they were ready or heard a note they wanted to sing they started singing a note and held it until they ran out of breath and it just happened over and over again. It was like recycling sound. After a couple minutes you could hear we started working together and then someone would throw in a random note. Once you were out of breath before you took another note to just sit with your eyes closed and listen to the sound migrating around the room. Then join into and contribute to the sound.
It was just so cool to listen and to hear.
We had comments after and one of my favorites was something our conductor said
"and soon all the chaos starts to make sense"
and that just really spoke to me because it kinda applied to my life at the moment to, just wanting to sing my own note and let everything else flow around and then all the chaos just starts to blend together..
Hopefully everything will just start making sense.

So sometimes just stop and listen to the notes people are trying to sing around you and join in when your ready,
Try to make the chaos around you start making sense.

you hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.

Hello fellow Bloggers. :)

I started High School tuesday :)... at first walking in to the building my whole body shaking.. i was soo nervous.. but now even after 2 days.. It's natural .. like i've been there forever..
It's so great.. people are super nice and its easy to get around.. I don't even know why I was scared. :)

I guess most things jsut work them selves out.. you don't need to be worrying about every little detail.. and I guess knowing me I shouldn't be giving this advice because I think about everything over and over , so i guess I should take my own advice.

I guess it also kinda relates to living in the land of "of only" . If only this, this and that happened.. of only I could change the way I said that.. If only that day was different.. If only I could take that back..
Well you can't so there is no point thinking about it 24/7 just live your life to the fullest and be yourself.

One of my favorite places in the world, Malagash Bible Camp. I've gone for 5 or 6 years or longer, Its almost like a second home even though I only get to go there once a year. But hopefully that will change this year, I am planning on maybe going to SnoBlast and hopefully will do volunteer work in the kitchen as well as be a camper this coming summer. :)
I always feel so im-powered in the Lord coming away from camp and it stays for the rest of the summer but when school starts its like BAM,.. all this crappy atmosphere and everything going on around you the same people, same judgements. Im hoping to change that this year. Its a New School were less people know me., Im going to Live for the Lord. People can judge me, honestly it doesn't matter what other people think of you its about what you think of yourself and what God thinks of you that really truly matters.
This year at camp was really great, New Friends, New Leaders, New Relationships built on the fact that you are at the same camp, learning the same things, stuck in the same place for a week. But this year was different I really felt the Lord move me and even more so when I got home.
Faith without action is DEAD.
So lets put our Faith into action and Live it out this coming year and onwards.

who's with me?
(I don't respect much response.. 'cause well I doubt anybody reads me blog.)

So, here she goes, my very first Blog Ever..
so school starts in 8 days.. and I GET MY BRACES OFF IN 6.. 
Im so very excited. I've heard retainers aren't that great but.. better that trying to get little bits of leftovers out of the little spaces in between the the little metal brackets cemented to your teeth.. doesn't sound that appealing eh? Its not fun. But at least my teeth are not as horridly crooked as they were before I got them on.. worth it?... I guess so. :)

High School.. 8 days.. I don't even wanna think about it.. Not that Im scared for the work, I know i'll be able to work it, Im not scared for any classes really. Im going to be busy with NSJWE and im also taking Band.. I play the Trombone.. I know that will be tougher than grade 8 band but oh well.. also i'm going into Honour Choir for the 3rd year.  So, i'm going to be pretty busy.
The only thing i'm, pretty nervous for is the change.. I know going into High School is going to be soo different and I know people are going to change..  thats what scares me.. I guess I've never had to deal with BIG changes before ones that could effect my future, I've never moved and I've been going to the same school since Primary. 

Who knows what adventures will be thrown my way.. 

Thats all for now.
