I took the first one of these pictures about one year ago on my side yard...about one month ago I was exploring the same place and the same tree caught my eye. For me, these pictures represent how beauty can thrive in the barest of places. The broken slats from the fence does not pollute the tree's living area, but rather, give the tree a trait of strength and pride. Life can grow even if darkness is surrounding it. For some reason, when I saw the second picture, I was amazed at how much the tree grew in one little year. I guess it was because I assumed that the tree would wither and die without me or someone else to take care of give it nutrition and sunlight. I didn't realize that nature would take it's course and the tree could flourish and live on its own.

I'm kind of thinking that I'm going to start posting more of my own pictures instead of google ones...just a thought.

"And music is my aeroplane"

During our one month break from soccer, we were assigned not only to run every day, but to compile a list of seven colleges we would like to attend. That go me to thinking that this is going to be my last summer of summer I'm probably going to have to get a summer job and do some volunteer work..I'm going to have to be studying for my SAT's and catching up on my greek and latin roots for the ACT's. Not that any of that is a bad thing, because I am super excited for college. I'm excited to push myself and to learn without having to worry about the distractions of high school drama. My classes will be filled with people want to learn and are thrilled about the aspect what the professor is saying rather than kids who have to be threatened to the Dean's office if they don't pay attention. It is going to be hard having to fend for myself finally, and to be away from my family, but I know with their support I will be able to make it. Oh, who am I trying to kid...I'm gonna super miss them! I'm hoping to go to a college that is only two and half hours away from home, so that should make it a little bit more bearable.
