Subject:my 2005.
Time:10:25 pm.
Mood: reflective.
As the year is ending, I thought I’d do what I did last year and look back on the highlights and share some pictures to sum up my 2005.

To get the low-lights out of the way: I’d say the worst things about the year were good friends leaving (Joey moving to Kansas and Zach going into the Coast Guard) and my junior year really being kind of crappy (school-wise, so far at least). But it’s better to look at the positive than the negative. So here are the highlights of my year, and there are many:

-ski trip: best one yet! I got a lot better at snowboarding thanks to some helpful people; had a crazy fun time night snowboarding with some good buddies; and a very enlightening bus ride home getting to know this girl named Sarah.

-youth group- planet wisdom conference, Tuesday nights, for a while we had a discipleship group (hope we start that again soon); it's just the place to be.

-friends’ birthday parties- all of them were full of good times.

-spring soccer- (school)- it had its ups and downs; (sysa)- good stuff, it was fun going from one practice to the next, but very time consuming. My sysa team > pvhs.

-Slopfest!- fun time with Kels, Michele, and Launi; a good way to start off the summer of 2005.

-VBS- worked with Alicia and Mrs. Boyd with the Red Monkeys! I was a guide with them, so I walked around with a bunch of 2nd-3rd graders. This one kid, Joe, was my buddy and he was my favorite all week.

-sports camp at church- haha lots of fun; I was a soccer coach. two of my kids (by the way our team was Manchester United!) were probably better than me lol; and I got to know one of them, Sergio, better over the summer; he’s a cool one. And then I got Don to start a Saturday night soccer thing at church and that lasted for a little while during the summer.

-first job! I started working at the sportsplex in the middle of June; all summer I worked with the multi-sport camp.. basically played sports with a bunch of little kids the whole day; enjoyable but very tiring. I still work there, but doing parties. The tips are the main reason I’m still there lol; they can be pretty sweet. OH and Kelsey works there too; my lovely neighbor Ernie. =)

-camp!- worked up at New Life for a week; I was basically a junior counselor for Bethany and then did some odd jobs around the camp; it was good spending time with Bethany and Laura, and I made two new friends: Carina and Olivia!

-CASWELL!! oh snap!!! the summer retreat was so much fun. Just an insane week. Memorable moments: one crazily hyper oompa loompaing night; gained the best bunk buddy ever: Sarah, we had some WILD times; very emotional night; football! lol tackling Allie; funny car ride home; got to know a lot of people much better.

-Beach/Family time- I love my family so much; and now that I'm older I appreciate them more. I especially love it when my siblings are home.

-colleges- stayed with Kathryn at UVA and stayed with Bethany at JMU; still in the process of deciding where to go and what to do; right now physical therapy is my number one choice.

-fall sysa soccer- even though attendance dropped and our team was kinda stinky, I still had a good time with those who came. All-star tournament was not the best; I missed the regular Thanksgiving tourney; um, best parts were between games hanging out with my buddy Michele or playing keep-away with Saani and Rebekah lol.

-friends- making new ones and improving other friendships: a few at school, a few from soccer, two new cool kiddos from camp; but basically I’ve gotten closer to a good handful of homies from youth group. movie nights, snow days with snowball fights, pumpkin carving, eating jello, D.C. United games!, starbucks, starbucks “study group” or not, car rides, just anything with my amazing friends.

Subject:saying goodbye to 2004..
Time:9:02 pm.
Well my year was pretty good. I couldn’t think of many bad things and then again I would rather forget about them anyway. I guess the only bad things that happened to me would be my stupid ankle sprain (although I gained a cripple buddy) and my dog biting me. Highlights …

-ski trip. Because all ski trips are a blast. And especially going down blue/black diamonds with Sheri and Kathryn.
-surrender conference. I mostly remember the praise/worship part because it was just really awesome.
-cool people at school like Nghi, Christine, Cambrie, Juli, and some more.
-JV spring soccer! For the most part at least. Good times in the trainer’s too.
-being a coach/leader at the sports camp and teaching the little kiddies how to play soccer. Or just run around in circles. And me and Sheri singing all the songs (with motions!) that get stuck in your head for hours.
-New York City Missions Trip. The most awesome week of 2004. I loved it and I miss it so much. (all the pre-trip stuff too) Well, I played soccer in a park all week with some kids older and younger than me. Made some cool friends like Taylor, Pj, and Marcus and got to know some people from youth group a lot better. =) amazing week. God is awesome.
-Beach boys concert with Kelsey, Launi, and Tory. We boogied down with the old fogees.
-Alpine- Summer Retreat. I love that place. This year was insane! Canoe with Erin, rappelling once again, and the most awesome soccer game in the pouring rain. It was just tons of fun times with some cool friends, old and new.
-the many DC United games we went to. Crazy fun times. Me, Kelsey, Zach, Robert, Joey, and Trey.
-the beach/Thanksgiving/Christmas. Because I love the beach and all the family time.
-Fall soccer 2004. and all-stars. Greatest season yet. And Michele is so awesome!
-the incredible people and times at youth group
-fall WOG Bond. Hershey park funness! I love you girls!
-2004 Christmas party! Turned out to be so much fun! I need another word for fun. Haha dancing, wow.
-and basically all the awesome times with friends in between all of that. like birthday parties, movie nights, and a bunch of random stuff. =)

so yes, my 2004 was pretty awesome.

now in picturesCollapse )
