Write one leaf about pumpkins.

October 17, 2010

Fall is my favorite time of year and pumpkins just top it all off!! 😀

This year for Halloween I will be in La Crosse for a youth convention and for a fund raiser we sold a WHOLE ton of pumpkins. They were $5 each. I ended up raising $60 I think it was….I dont remember but I think thats right. Anways, the youth center that had bought them for us to sell still has a lot more but they aren’t the best. So now what we are doing is selling them for I think its $3 and the youth center is letting people throw the pumpkins out the top window of a two story building and try to hit targets like eggs cartons, etc. It’s going to be a blast!

Before we decided this, my mom bought two pumpkins for me and my sister to carve! Im looking forward to it! 🙂

Last year I didn’t get to carve a pumpkin. sad panda. I love pumpkin tho. The only thing bad Ive ever had that was pumpkin was some Pumpkin soup my aunt tried making one year that she put ham in. It was pretty nasty. But I love a good pumpkin pie with tons of whip cream on it. Or dried pumpkin seeds with some salt on em! YUM!! Those are just amazing!!

My favorite thing about pumpkins though, is on halloween night when everyone has their carved pumpkins outside and all lit up! Its like magic! =]

Day 5 – Letter to a future boyfriend

July 21, 2010

7/19/10

Dear you,

          This is a warning. Personally, I can’t stand myself and I don’t have a clue why you would like me. Honestly, I’m insane…and very high maintenance. I’m OCD, ADD, pedophonic, claustrophobic, a bit of an insomniac, and possibly bipolar at times. But if you can get past all of that, I have one of the biggest hearts you will ever encounter. It makes me over emotional and clingy at times, but through all of that – just know that if I tell you “I love you,” I mean it! I will never cheat because you are the world to me. And I know how crushed I would be if someone cheated on me, so I would never even consider doing something that cold to you or to anyone else. You are a brave soul for voluntarily making yourself a part of my life and insanity. I hope I’m not too hard on you – If I ever am, I’m sorry. Just give me a hug, kiss, and some time. And remember that I still love you.

Sincerely,

Me

Day 4 – Letter to a lost friend

July 21, 2010

7/18/10

Dear you,

          I never wanted to lose you! Not at all. And I still don’t want to. Having you as my friend meant the world to me. I’m never going to be able to forget you. There are pictures of you that run through my head each day. Whenever I need advice, I think of what you would’ve told me, or of things you’ve already said. You’ve had such a big impact on my life and I wouldn’t even know where to start with thanking you. I miss you greatly and you are always in my thoughts, prayers, and heart. I hope you have a great life and remember me every now and then.

Sincerely,

Me

Just another letter (so I wouldn’t actually say this to the person)

July 21, 2010

7/17/10

Dear you,

          Thank you for being my friend as long as you were. I enjoyed talking to you ever day that I did and I miss the kind of conversations we used to have. And I also regret pushing you away. Don’t tellme that I didn’t, because I know I did. I can’t stand thinking about it. I know things between us have changed alot, but I still feel the same about you as I did all along. You are such a fun person and I love hearing you laugh. I still wish I could meet you – I think about it alot lately it seems. I don’t likt it though because it seems very unlikely that it will happen and you don’t show interest in it anymore. It makes me sad, but I know I should just let you go. All you are is an idea that will probably never become a reality and I’ve finally realized that. Even if we did meet and were friends in person, we wouldn’t see each other very often. So I think it will be easiest for me to just tell you goodbye now before I become anymore attached.

I know you’ll go far in life. You have family and friends supporting and loving you always. Never forget them and just hold on. If god brings you to it, he will help you through it. Always have faith. If you ever need me, I’ll be here.

Sincerely,

Me

Day 3 – Letter to a best guy friend

July 21, 2010

7/17/10

Dear you,

           The best thing about having a guy best friend, is there’s less drama with you than with girls. I don’t have to worry about you being attracted to the same person as me ever or trying to steal my boyfriend. Not to mention, no gossip talk. Sometimes a girl doesn’t want to talk about whats going on with everyone else. Thats when its nice to have you around expecially. You’re there for me and we can have a good time easily. I never feel akward around you and you give the best hugs. Plus I can go to you for advice on other guys. I love having you around and when you aren’t, I miss you dearly. You are such a great, fun person. Thank you for being my friend.

Sincerely,

Me

Day 2 – Letter to someone who has past away

July 21, 2010

7/16/10

Dear you,

           I miss you – everyday. It isn’t as hard anymore, but somedays I think of you so often and I have to try my best not to cry. There are all those little things you left behind as memories of you. Some of them actual physical items, some memories, and some must common everyday things that relate to you. Every time I go to a cemetery it brings back memories of tear filled eyes, makeup streaked faces, outfits of all black. over-sized flower bouqets, and your body being lowered into the ground – to be covered in dirt and grass – never to be seen again.

       Yours was the first major loss in my life other than losing things like my first tooth of course. And I didn’t understand back then just what it all meant. I do now though and I’ve shed enough tears since then to makeup for my past childish ways. I love you always and miss you.

Sincerely,

Me

Day 1 – Letter to a good friend

July 21, 2010

7/15/10

Dear you,

           Thank you for always being here for me and being someone I can trust. I know that I can always count on you because we’ve been through so much together and we always come out of it still having each other. No amount of time or distance can keep us apart. It has tried many times before but our friendship is something that has weathered everything and can never be broken. If for some reason I was to ever lose you, I wouldn’t know what to do. I’d be truly lost myself and would be a different person. You mean so much to me. More than you’ll ever know. Thank you for being in my life.

Sincerely,

Me

Write one leaf about making a mix tape

May 1, 2010

So my ex made me cds. I always told him there was a cd I wanted to get, and the next day he’d surprise me with a burned copy of the cd I had been talking about.

I felt guilty for never giving him anything, so I decided to make him a “mix tape” (cd actually lol). I worked on it for hours one night. I wanted it to be perfect! I wanted every song to mean as much to him as he meant to me. I didn’t think it was done that night, so I just left it and said I’d come back to it. A week went by and we barely talked at all. Instead he wrote me notes. This made me kind of upset but I thought I’d finish the cd and give it to him. And idk…

Either way I thought we would be able to fix things. I burned the cd and put it in my backpack with intentions of giving it to im the next day. The days came and went and he stopped writing to me even. Things got akward between us, and I snapped. I couldn’t take it anymore and I lost all hope…

I broke up with him.

….And at this point idk what else to say. Somedays I’m glad I did it and other days I’m curious what would have happened. If we would’ve stuck it out, could we have fixed everything and atleast be friends now?

Well two days ago, I found that old backpack. I decided i’d use it. I started cleaning it out, opened the big pouch and found nothing in it, opened the side pouch and sure enough there it was. I listened to the cd that night.

That night, I cried myself to sleep…

Write one leaf about someone who loves you

May 1, 2010

I honestly don’t know who loves me or if anyone truly does. People have told me before that they love me, but other days they hate me. And who knows really. People will say anything, it doesn’t mean it’s true!

It’s an interesting thing. And I feel like I’m being hypocritical  because I’ve done this. I’ve told people I love them, but somedays I do truly hate them. No, I take that back. I don’t “truly” hate them, but it’s like I hate loving them so much. Expecially when they do things that make me mad, sad, etc.

And love is such a difficult thing. It’s hard to say what love truly is. We are brought up being told “I love you” from our parents and family members. And that’s one of the first things we hear from our mom when she first meets us and has no clue what we’re going to turn out like. So love is unconditional. But it also seems to be forced upon us. If we don’t tell our parents or anyone that we love them back then they think something is wrong with them and that we’re mad at them for something.

Love is complicated. It makes no sense. It causes ur heart to beat 10x faster than it should. Fills ur stomache with butterflies so you shake and feel like you could throw up. Your head spins and circles and you become dizzy. And yet we enjoy this feeling. It’s what so many people yurn for….that is the people who’ve never had it.

After a way though, it all goes away. And love becomes just simply being yourself and feeling comfortable around someone. Knowing them inside and out. Being honest, trust worthy, careing….and just being there for someone.

All we need is love….
