So I was originally going to write this post as a review of a movie, but I don’t have the energy to do an in-depth review of a movie right now. So I’ll just say this about the movie: I went to see Contagion with one of my best friends. It was a really intense thriller, but not quite what I expected it to be. The beginning was kind of disturbing, but then it got much better. Overall, it was really good and I would recommend it. Also, the music was very fitting and made everything so much better.

School is school. The year is not going fast enough though! I’m trying to enjoy everything while it lasts, but it’s hard to not compare everything to what I could be doing in Seattle. It’s been a struggle for me this year. I’m so desperate to go out to Seattle that I find myself having difficulty being content here. Needless to say, I cannot wait to go visit Marcy and Travis in a few weeks! I love going out this time of year. Seattle’s fall is so different from Montana’s fall. Seattle is just so different. The two really can’t be compared in my mind.

Well, I really don’t have much else to update on…so I guess that’s where this blog will end!!! Have a great weekend!!


All the Randomness

Posted in Friends, Random, School, This post comes out of boredom.., Update with tags , , , , , on September 21, 2011 by Samantha Rose

The title of this post is also the title of my blog on Tumblr…which you can go to by clicking here. Tumblr is a pretty fun site, especially when you’re bored, like I am most of the time during my Spanish class. That’s what I’m in now. It’s pretty easy so I’m usually ahead and don’t really have much to do.

So three interesting things going on today, two of which have already happened.
The first is that it’s picture day, which I guess isn’t super interesting, but it’s something different and it breaks up the monotony of my days. I’m not really a fan of picture day, because I don’t really like pictures of myself that often. I feel like my smile is kind of awkward, but whatever. As long as my parents like the pictures, I guess that’s what matters since they paid for them!
The second interesting thing is that we had a lockdown today. And not a fake one either! Some kid in my class brought a gun to school. Well, it was in the back of his truck, but still, it’s on school grounds. Ok so that wasn’t that exciting…more just a stupid mistake. And apparently he can get expelled for that (which I hate saying this, but I would be okay if he was expelled for a year. If you knew the kid you would understand. He’s a creeper.) but I don’t know if he will or not. But luckily it happened during first period, so I got to stay in Treble Choir for a while longer which is always nice!
The third (and final) interesting thing that is happening today is that my school is having an assembly…that will last almost all afternoon!! It is 2 hours long and apparently it’s a pow-wow…I guess we had one last year but I must have missed it because I don’t remember it! Anyway, I wish it had been this morning and had gone from 2nd period to 4th period, because then I would have missed Accounting, English, and Spanish. But then I wouldn’t have been able to write this so I guess that wouldn’t have been good. Oh gosh I’m rambling now!! Hehe sorry ’bout that!!

Other exciting events this week….
College fair tomorrow, which I’m really only going to so I can get out of class (bad kid, right? The rest of my cooking group is going to be gone that period so I don’t really want to have to cook by myself…might as well go check out some schools I won’t be applying to!). But again, it’s something to break up the monotony of this school.
Lunch tomorrow at the church! Every week three women (Mandy, Kristen, and Kim) do a lunch for the middle school and high school kids. They’re really nice, and the food is always delicious! Me and a couple of friends go just about every week.

Well I think that’s enough for this post! =)
DFTBA (Don’t Forget To Be Awesome)

This post is gonna be short because I’ve got a lot to do tonight! It’s homecoming week so we have the big game tonight and then a dance after.

Homecoming was pretty fun this year. We have a new principal in our school and he’s actually pretty awesome. He played macho volleyball today, trash talked the seniors while playing volleyball, was ready to take a pie in the face yesterday (luckily for him one of the gym teachers got it instead) and seems to want to make things fun for the teachers and students.

In other exciting news, my ukulele came in the mail this week!! Since it was homecoming I haven’t had much time to play it, but I am already starting to learn Somewhere Over the Rainbow (amazing how quickly Youtube can teach you how to play a ukulele)!!!

Star Wars came out on BluRay today. I want a BluRay player just so I can watch Star Wars on it. Although I’m not sure how I feel about them changing the movies a bit. Why fix what wasn’t broken, right?

My classes are going fairly well…Spanish is fun, my TA period is awesome, and I usually have little, if any, homework, which is really nice!

Anyway, I’ve got to go get ready for tonight…I’ll post something more later this weekend if I have the chance…

Me & my family decided to spend today up in Glacier Park and the surrounding area…our day included breakfast at the Whistle Stop Cafe, mini-golf, a visit to the Hungry Horse Dam, laser-tag and arcade games at the Zone, a trip to Moose’s Saloon for pizza & peanuts, and a stop in East Glacier for dessert. Bliss.

I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend as well!

Well, today is my last day of summer. I start my junior year tomorrow..scary!! I’m actually looking forward to starting the year…because once I’m done with this year, then I’ll be a senior! And then I will graduate! So I’m really only looking forward to starting the year because it means I’m one step closer to graduation day. But oh well. At least something about school excites me, right?

There actually is something else about school that excites me! (Are you shocked? Because you probably should be.) I’m going to be taking Spanish this year! It’s an online course but I’m still really excited about it. I’ve wanted to learn Spanish for a while now and this year it actually worked with my schedule. I’m hoping this school year will be more fun and less stressful than last year.

Something else I’m looking forward to is getting paid this week from my weekend job. Why am I so excited to get paid? Well besides the fact that getting money is always nice, I’m planning to do something really fun with this paycheck. I’m going to order a ukulele offline!! I think the ukulele looks like a lot of fun to play, so I decided I would get one and teach myself how to play. There are a lot of good tutorials on Youtube that I plan on using and there is a really awesome site called the Ukulele Underground which I also plan on using once I get my ukulele. So maybe if I ever get good enough I’ll post a little video of a ukulele song…we’ll see about that!!

So that’s what’s going on with me this week…

Some of my current favorite things:

1. Book in the Bible: Psalms. Always. I think Psalms is one of those books that has something for everyone…

2. Verse: I couldn’t pick just one, so here are a few of my favorites…
Psalms 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Psalms 116:6-9 “The Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me. Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. for you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.”
Matthew 6:27 “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
Matthew 5:3-5 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”
Acts 20:24 “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me–the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.”

3. Song: Shipwreck by Starfield This song really means a lot to me…I can still remember hearing it for the first time in Seattle, sitting at the desk in our room at the Ronald McDonald House and just sobbing. This song made me start listening to Starfield again, and that band is the reason why I went to the Dare 2 Share conference in Seattle a couple of years ago. That conference renewed my faith and strength in the Lord. I don’t know where I would be today if I hadn’t gone there and had the experience that I did.

4. One of my favorite places (in town) : The museum at sunset…it’s gorgeous & it’s where I usually go to take pictures…I also go out on those roads to walk at night. It’s breathtaking…

5. Activity: Besides relaxing and enjoying summer, taking pictures of our garden and flowers around town to remind myself that winter does not last forever…

6. Rediscovering how much I love to blog and write…will hopefully continue to do it more often!! After I’m done posting this…I have decided to try to write some poetry again. I haven’t written poetry in what feels like forever. I do have story in my mind though…but we’ll see how that goes.

For those of you who don’t know…Stephenie Meyer came out with a new book!!!!

I know…I FREAKED OUT too…=)

Yesterday me & Molly went shopping.  Of course I bought it!!!  I also bought the Eclipse soundtrack…I wanted to buy the Twilight graphic novel as well…but Molly told me not to.  For some reason she thinks that I have enough Twilight-related things….silly girl.

That silly girl is currently on her way to her college orientation…She won’t be back until Wednesday.  As if that isn’t bad dad went with her.  That’s right.  Until Wednesday, it’s just me and my momma at the house.  But it will just be basically my mom…Why?  Because I got a new Stephenie Meyer book!!  I fully plan on ignoring the rest of the world while I read that book.

Well…mostly I’ll ignore the world.  Except for those few hours a day that I work.  That’s right.  I got a job.  Look at me…I’m all independent and stuff!!  (Not really…I work for only three hours a day..not quite independent..but I’m getting there!!)  I’m working at our local deli…mostly I take orders and clean.  Now that school is done, I’ll be needing something to do.  So at least I’ll have work!!  (which of course is LOTS of fun…hehe)

Besides work, in July I’ll start driving!!  Scary, right?  I’m excited.  Hopefully I don’t hit too many things….Maybe people should start praying now…=)
