Lotsa Shtuff...

Hello! I know it's been a while since I last posted... I'm sorry, it's just that I've been busy! REALLY busy... Here's some of what's been going on:

  • Tuesday I was asked to be an assistant instructor for the 3-5 year old class at karate! :D 
  • Wednesday I had my usual church activity in the evening for us youth. :) A former FBI agent came and talked to us about what it's like to be in the FBI! He had some GREAT stories! :D 
  • Friday and Saturday I had my black belt training, in addition to my usual classes on Tuesday and Thursday. 
  • Saturday evening I went to a dance! No, not Prom, just a dance at my church. Now don't go "ew, a church dance?" The dances are AWESOME! ALL of my friends agree that they are WAY better than any old school dance! ;) 
  • Sunday I'm not allowed to blog
  • And yesterday... Well, nothing much happened really... 
  • Today it was more karate, cardio class, and helping with the 3-5 year olds! 
So yeah.. That's what I've been up to lately. :) 

KoalaLove, here are your signatures FINALLY!! 
(the second one isn't loading for some reason... -.- Gargh, I HATE technical difficulties...)
Let me know if you'd like them changed or if you don't like them and you'd like me to make completely new ones. I'm open to whatever. :) I'm sorry it's taken me soooo long...

I added two more pictures to the Art Page! But so that you don't have to go all the way over to that page just to see them, here they are! You'll probably recognize them. They're not new, I just haven't put them on the page yet. :) 

 It is SOOO WARM TODAY!! :D YAY! It's in the 80s right now, and it's AWESOME! We're going to take a walk in a few minutes. Brownie LOVES to go on walks with us! even mentioning the word w-a-l-k gets her CRAZY! It's SOOO CUTE!! :D She got into some nasty green slime when we went on a walk with her on Sunday... we were in the forest, and there was this disgusting green goo right in the middle of the trail... what does Brownie do? She laps it right up. EWWW!!! Needless to say, she got a bath the minute we got home... We found a tick on her this morning, poor girl.. But she's fine. :) Right now she's sitting on our coffee table in the living room looking out the window. D'aww!!!! :3 

Well, I'm fresh out of ideas.  >.<

Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Hello! :D Sorry I haven't posted in a while... I've been sorta busy with karate, practicing for the ACT, and a lot of other stuff. 
 Good news! I took a practice ACT test on Monday and I got a 33!!!! :D (for those of you who are unfamiliar with the ACT, the highest score you can get is a 36.) 
That was one point higher than my last practice test, and last time I got a point higher than the time before, so I'm hoping that when I take my last practice one, and then finally the real one, I can get a 35 or maybe even a 36! :D Maybe that's a bit optimistic... but attitude is key! >;D

KoalaLove2013, I will have your signatures done THIS WEEK! I'm sooo sorry it's taken me soo long!! D: But They're going to be really pretty when they're done! ^.^ 

Anywho, you're probably wondering why the title of this post is "Chocolate Chip Cookies", am I right? 

Well, here's why! :D 

Recipe for egg-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes about 20 cookies

  • 10 Tablespoons of butter 
  • 1 cup of sugar 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  •  1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  •  1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
~In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light in color. This should take around 2 minutes in a mixer, or 5 if you are doing it by hand. 
~Add the vanilla and applesauce, and mix until fully incorporated. 
~In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Make sure you do it really well, or you'll have salty spots in your cookies! 
~Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring well. 
~Once fully mixed, add the oats and the chocolate chips.
~Preheat your oven to 350F (175C) 
~Scoop into balls that are about the size of a ping-pong ball, and bake for 8 1/2 minutes. 

**The cookies will NOT look done, but let them cool on the hot tray for about 5 minutes, then move them to a cooling rack. THEY WILL BE MUSHY but...Once they are completely cooled, you will have perfectly soft cookies! ^.^ You may have to adjust the baking time according to your oven.**
**You can also eat as much of the cookie dough as you want (or as your parents will let you, haha) because there are no eggs in it! :D so no worries about salmonella or anything like that! ;)**
Hope you enjoy! this is the recipe we use every time we make cookies, and it's GREAT! :D
We made them today, and so I just felt like sharing the recipe with you guys! ^.^  You'll probably want to double the batch, because they are really yummy! XD

Prizes, Party, and Spring! XD Kinda... lol

So, Pupp, I've sent you the first batch of your prizes. It won't let me send more than a certain amount of jam-a-grams to you in one day, so I'll have to send the rest on other days.. So you'll get them this next week. :) 

I am on AJ right now, but I'm logging off in a few minutes.. Nobody is on, and I don't have a lot of time.. I have to go to karate today, and I need to get some stuff done before I do that. 

I might have another commenting contest in a while, but I now have a new rule - you cannot win two commenting contests in a row. So Pupp, you may participate, but you won't be able to win. This will give other people a chance to win sometimes too. :) 

Happy Spring! It finally feels like Spring here! :D

Clean Comedy

Okay, so maybe this guy looks really old, but watch his videos! Bill Cosby is a really funny guy, and his comedy is CLEAN. 

In this day and age, it seems like people think they have to be innapropriate to be funny... But that's NOT true! Clean comedy can be just as funny, and more enjoyable because you don't feel guilty for laughing at a bad joke. 

Keeping your comedy clean makes you a better person to be around. Even if people laugh when you tell an off-color joke, pay attention to how you feel deep down inside. Kinda guilty, right? Well, my brain is muddled right now, and I think none of these sentences really tie together in a logical paragraph anymore, so erm... Thanks for reading!

Tuesday, April 16, 2013


Today I will announce the winner of the commenting giveaway for March 16th - April 16th, and the winner of that giant pyramid of prizes over there. 


The winner is....



(here's a hint)


Congratulations, Pupp! :D I have not yet counted all of the comments, but the fact that Gerlach hasn't commented anymore since the last time I announced who was winning makes it clear that he is now WAY behind.. I'll do a final tally later so that you can see just how far ahead you were. ;) 

Now the question is, how can I get your prizes to you? are you a member on AJ? Can I just send them to you?
If not, we need to find a time where both of us can get on and trade. 

And this is a great time for my OTHER announcement! This Saturday at 1:00pm my time (CST), which is 2:00pm Eastern,: noon AJHQ time, and 8:00pm France time, and I think that covers all the times now..
I will be getting on AJ for a little while to either send Pupp her prizes, or trade them if that works for her. If you want to meet me, that's awesome! We can have a little party! ^.^ 

If you want to come to the party, just buddy me. I'll accept your request, and that's a lot easier than saying what server and where... It's probably going to be at my den, but what-ev. I still would prefer doing it that way. :) 

So buddy me if you want to come to my party this Saturday! (April 20th, 2013) 

Hope to see you all there! :D 

Thanks for reading!

Today and tomorrow are the last days to comment for the giveaway! Hurry!

Sorry for this short post..
Thanks for reading!

I'm sorry

I'm so sorry guys! I forgot to announce who was winning AGAIN!! D: 

Anywho, to make up for the delay, I've made it a more interesting display! ^.^ 

As you can see, Gerlach, you are 10 behind. You only have until Tuesday to catch up! 

Who will win?!!? This is really close!!
Remember, a whole pyramid of prizes is at stake! :3 

And I will get on AJ one day to give whoever wins their prizes! :D So I'll let y'all know when that'll be, and you can meet me there! :)

Thanks for reading!

Meerkat Facts

This is a copy of a post I did on another blog I am a contributor on, The Animal Savannah, an AWESOME Animal Facts blog created by LEAFA! If you like animals, you'll love her blog!

Meerkats are small, omnivorous mammals that live in the deserts of Africa. They stand about 12 inches tall, and weigh just two pounds.
Their territory usually consists of about 3 square miles, and they viciously defend it from rival groups. Fights over territory can be very vicious, and often end in blood.

Groups of meerkats usually consist of about 20 or 30 members, but can be smaller or larger - even up to 50! 

Meerkat "mobs", as they are called, are led by a dominant female and her mate. However, it is the female that is the true leader of the group. The dominant female has the sole mating rights in the group, and any subordinate female who makes the mistake of mating within the group or with a roving male, puts herself in danger of eviction. Since the dominant female wants her own pups to have the best chance of survival, any other female's pups may or may not be tolerated. 
Meerkats spend most of their day foraging. Since they only weigh about two pounds, they have to constantly eat to keep up their body weight. 
The diet of a meerkat is mainly constituted of insects, scorpions, reptile eggs, or even the occasional snake. Even though scorpions are poisonous, meerkats have developed an immunity to their venom, and relish the taste of this tasty snack. 

Meerkat pups are born in litters of 1-8, and usually emerge from the den for the first time at about 3 weeks old. They stay at home with the babysitters until they are about 4 or 5 weeks old.Only about 3/4 of all meerkat pups survive to adulthood. Many fall prey to owls, hawks, hunger, the elements, or sometimes other mobs.
 Meerkats have numerous burrows in their territory, and memorize the locations of thousands of "bolt holes" within their territory. In emergency situations, these bolt holes provide protection to them when their burrow is too far away to get to quickly. Meerkat burrows are a maze of tunnels and passageways, with many different entrances to the same burrow.

The reason I chose to write about meerkats is that we've been watching "Meerkat Manor", and so I've learned a lot about them this past week! XD We own the first three seasons on DVD, and we watched them a couple years ago. Just this last week, we decided to watch them all again. We just finished the last episode today! It's a good show, but kind of sad... the life of a meerkat sure has many dangers! I'm glad I'm not a meerkat! O.O 
Hope you enjoyed this! :D

My Voice! :D

Any of you want to hear what I sound like? Well, head on over to my talkshow blog and find out! :D Course, I don't post on it anymore, so all of the videos are old and outdated, but the voice is still the same! ;P 

 Enjoy! ;D 

And here are a few interesting things for you to feast your eyes on. O.o

This was my little hammy, Sterling. He was a winter-white Russian dwarf! ^.^ He died about a year or so ago... :( But he was CUUUUTE!
Here's a picture of some fungus thing that I got a couple years ago before my camera broke! I thought it was neat. :3
Here's a video I took at a rodeo I went to on vacation one time! :D It was AWESOME!! I LOVE horses, so it was neat to see all of them, and see the rodeo and all that. :3 And just so you know, the horses they use are NOT mistreated, they naturally do all that bucking around. They aren't whipped to do it, and they aren't trained to do it - they are bred to do it. And they LOVE it too. :D 

That's our neighbor's dog. :3

New Header! :D Thank you, FrostWolf! :D

MY HEADER FITS PERFECTLY NOW!! Thanks to my AWESOME sister, Sasha! :D (Aka, FrostWolf.. She hates it when I still call her Sasha on here...;) 


Aww! Ain't that purty? :3 I saw that picture and I was like: "=OOO FROSTWOLF!!!!!"
hehehe :3

 And just to show you how BRILLIANT my sister is, here are some of the AwEsOmE pictures she has taken! :D 

Wondering how she got so close to all those animals? Well, we were at Bear Country in South Dakota on vacation a couple years ago. Bear Country is a drive-through wildlife park, so we got to get up close (in our car) to a bunch of AWESOME animals! :D 
That's how. :3 

Thanks for reading!


I made your signature, Gerlach! :D lol! I hope you like it!

If you don't like it, let me know and I can make a new one! ^.^ Or if this isn't what you wanted, let me know and I'll make something different! XD 

And if anyone else wants one, feel free to ask! :D 

Sorry this post is short...

Thanks for reading!

 And here's a cute little thing I found on SilverDawn's blog! ^.^ Read it! :D It's funny!! 

Nine things I know about you:

1. You are human. 

2. You are reading this. 

3. You can't say the letter P without separating your lips.

4. You just tried to do it. 

6. You are laughing at yourself and you skipped no.5. 

7. You just checked to see if there was a no.5. 

8. You are smiling because you are an idiot and everyone else falls for it too. 

9. You are likely to copy and paste this to see who else falls for it. 

Thanks for reading!

Hello! So, yes, obviously my previous post was nothing more than an April Fools joke! XD I mean, seriously, can you really imagine me living in a hut and going in an OUTHOUSE!?!? ME who has my nails painted all the time, hardly goes anywhere without putting at least a bit of eye makeup on, and can't stand mosquitoes! DX lol Needless to say, I would NEVER live in a hut without any modern conveniences of any kind... XD 

So, a couple things. 
First of all, I've made an art page! Well, CHANGED a page to BE the art page... lol I'll be adding some of my art to it ASAP, and Gerlach I would love to draw sumthin' for ya! ;D What would you like to see besides your name? O.O and what's your favorite color? Was it blue? I don't remember... DX 
And if anyone else wants me to draw something for you, make a request and I'd be happy to fill it! :D 

You may have also noticed the change in this Blog's look! SPRING IS HERE!! WAHOOO!!!!! I'm soooo happy! I was sick of winter D: So now I made my blog look like Spring too! ^.^ The header doesn't quite fit which I'm kinda bummed about.. :/ 
Also, do you want to hear about some of the April Fools jokes I played in real life? I'm assuming you're nodding your head right now, so here goes! >:D 

-I texted my friend (I will call him "John" for this, but that's not really his name), John, and told him that I was moving like 20 minutes away from where he lives now. (he moved about a year ago to a place that is 4 hours away from where I live.) Anywho, I told him that my dad got a job there and we were moving at the end of the school year. At first he was skeptical because it was April Fools day. (I mean, who WOULDN'T be?) But I insisted that it was no joke, and we really WERE moving. So eventually he believed me. John was excited (which I was glad to see... ;3), so then I felt horrible telling him that it really was a joke. DX But no hard feelings, John was totally cool with it. ;) 

-I texted my other friend (I will call her Jane), and told her that I was moving away. (she lives in the same town I do). But I told her right away that it was a joke. XD After the last experience with John, I didn't want to make Jane feel too terribly disappointed... 

-I told my BEST friend (I will call her Hannah) that I wasn't going to be able to come to the dance in a few weeks. :3 She was sad at first, and then I told Hannah that I really WAS going to come and it was all good. :D 

Did YOU play any April Fools jokes on anyone?
I HATE SPONGEBOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I do love April Fools day and it was sparkly :3

Y'all are awesome! 
(and no, I do not really say "Y'all", but it's quicker to type than "you guys"... and now the abbreviation is pointless because I just took the time to type this long explanation... gargh.... -.-)

And woahhhh I just realized that there are a LOT of words on this post, and NO pictures.. O.O 

*Adds pictures* There! :D Much better! ^.^ (note: I did NOT take any of them)

Thanks for reading!
 p.s. New Siggy! ^.^ :D

Read the title. It says it all. Goodbye. 

Okay, so maybe just "goodbye" isn't good enough.. Let me explain:

I've decided to quit using technology altogether. That means I won't be checking my email, blogging, listening to music, or using the phone. I'm going to try and abstain from using any sort of modern technology to do ANYTHING. I want to truly experience what it was like before all of this was invented.

I will be moving into this hut:

I built it myself. (with my dad's help of course)

This was taken last summer. I was originally going to use it as just a fort type place, but now I have decided to live in it. Forever. Alone. By myself. With an outhouse. 

Needless to say, I won't be continuing this blog anymore... So feel free to still visit it, but nothing will be updated on it or posted. 

And to all the commenters, I'm afraid you will be unable to receive your prizes... Since I won't be using the computer anymore, I won't be able to get you your prize... Well, maybe my sister can give it to you. I'll ask her. 

Thank you all for being so awesome. You guys are all great. 

I am so sorry. I hope that you all have great lives, and until we meet in heaven...


(That means goodbye...) 

Thanks for reading.... I'm signing out now for the last time. Ever. 

I'm here to stay! :D lol!
