Happy New Year!!!

Boring title, I know. My apologies, per normal. 

New Year’s Eve was quiet for me, but that is also the norm. My family watched a movie and an episode from season six of The Office (wonderful show, by the way– we are all addicted), and then went to bed. At least, a few of us did. I stayed up in my room, counting down on my watch, and had a (supposedly) awesome idea. I would JUMP at the time of 11:59.59, and LAND at the time of 12:00.01, so I would be COMPLETELY AIRBORNE between years. Crazy and slightly weird, yes, but I was tired. I jumped, and it was cool anyway. 

So, in honor of the glorious 2013 that is upon us, I will share a few resolutions. 

♦2013 RESOLUTIONS FOR MARYGRACE KING♦

  1. Break 30 seconds on the 50 freestyle for swimming
  2. Earn solid grades
  3. Create time enough to take piano lessons again, or at least play a bit on my own
  4. Be happy, have fun, and make life really nice for others!!!

A very abbreviated list, yes, but that is all I thought was really worth mentioning. Best to start out small, too, right? 

Moving on. I uploaded a few pictures onto the computer from my wonderful new CAMERA, and I thought, “Perhaps I should show my dear readers what my camera looks like!” But of course, it is impossible for a camera to take a picture of itself. HOWEVER, this obstacle has been averted with the help of something called a MIRROR. So without further ado, I present the FIRST PERSONAL PICTURE from MY CAMERA taken INSIDE MY HOUSE to be ON THIS WEBSITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I do believe I’m a right sight too excited. No matter. Look, there it is!!!)

Pardon the slight halos on my fingers – that is the MIRROR’S fault, NOT my darling camera’s!!!

This wonderful piece of technology will be implemented heavily in the future, let me tell you. All sorts of memories will be treasured and kept… pictures I will gaze upon as an eighty year old woman, in a nursing home, saying to the other old ladies, “look, these were taken when I was fourteen… how young I was then!” And they would then ooh and aah at the primitiveness of the camera from their hover wheelchairs. 

Alas, I am carried away. Again, Happy New Year, Happy 7th Day of Christmas, and keep your eyes peeled for the photo project I wrote about. Suffice to say I’m more than a bit behind on it, but IT. WILL. BE. POSTED. That I can promise. Perhaps not for a while, but it will see the light of day (or the Internet, really) someday!

Hello Again, Deserted Readers

Hi.

So…

First of all, I could say my absence since the day of I-don’t-know-when was due to busy schoolwork, scheduling, activities, my computer dying and me needing to get another one and consequently losing all my bookmarks (and therefore neglecting WordPress), and other post-delaying obstacles, but that would be untrue. Yes, yes, yes, there are kernels of truth in all of those, but the main reason I haven’t been posting is due to laziness at first, and then utterly inexcusable forgetfulness. So I am sorry, dear readers. I know I have said it before, and I probably will say it again, but I sincerely apologize for not posting for an undefined amount of time.

With that said, I will move on to more interesting topics. I know, nobody likes reading apologies. And they are nothing new on my site, anyway. (For that I am sorry, as well – apologies for apologizing :P)

Yesterday was THANKSGIVING!!! Wonderful, wonderful holiday. After gathering with relatives, we tucked in to a fabulous feast with scrumptious squash, bountiful beans, marvelous mashed potatoes, succulent stuffing, and of course the tantalizing turkey. After recovering from our food-induced comas, we set about demolishing perfectly pleasant, pleasing, palatable pies paired with amazing a la mode and wondrous whipped cream. 😀 Wonderful dishes, all. The conversation was just as nice, and afterwards we switched between watching football and Punkin Chunkin, the annual pumpkin hurling contest in which catapults, air cannons, and trebuchets chunk pumpkins as much as three thousand feet. Rather impressive, I must say.

I am currently out of school until Monday, which is nice, because teachers aren’t allowed to give homework over Thanksgiving break. Usually long weekends mean extra homework, but not on holidays! 😀 I still have a few days of stress-free bliss, and then back to tests, quizzes, homework, classes, activities, and general mayhem. Gotta love high school.

Yes, this is not a full catch-up on what I have been doing for the last couple of months, but it is a start for posting again. As soon as I can find some fresh and interesting ideas to post about, this site will be up and running again, as I’m sure there is something better out there for me to write about than half-baked updates and apologies. 😛

Thank you to all readers who stick with me despite my unfaithfulness to my little site! Smiles to all! 🙂 😀 🙂 😀 🙂 😀
