me and other people

i didn't realize that that was the running"theme" of all of these photos until just now. so here is a montage of photos from regionals that i'd like to title "me and other people"
note: these "other people" can also be called friends.
me and rachel
who appears to be smiling while sleeping but i believe she's actually awake kyrie anna ruth & sarah lynn :-)

joanna-who-looks-ridiculously-sweet-in-frenchbraids and me. sitting and matching. nothing climbing trees (or logs) and being dorks

my thoughts falling into sentences

"life is either a daring adventure or nothing."
.:helen keller:.

such a good quote and i keep having to remind myself of this. that life isn't for following and doing the same thing thats always been done because theres so many things to do that haven't been tried yet. so many things to do that no one else will do. i want my life to be full of life. i want to soak it all up; all the rich, colorful experiences that i know this world holds. not neccesarily foreign or exotic or expensive or huge--but meaningful and different. experiences that leave my comfort zone far behind and make me view things differently.
God has given me a purpose in life (purposes are such wonderful things) and i want to fulfull it, day by day, minute by minute. when i put my foot out my front door each day, i want to be courageous and ridiculously optimistic. i need to make adventure for myself . and with God i can make adventures because my life has a mission. a lifelong mission to reach as many people as possible with the glorious news of eternal life --thats why i am here.

Regional Mid-Atlanic Student Convention 2006 (sounds important doesn't it?)

the name tag i nicknamed "the dork pouch"--cousin to the fanny pack. it's cool until you start using to hold your cell phone, chapstick, money..etc.

tuesday: track and field day. my day.

the joAnna

we do this stretch before every major race. called the "sitting frog". really good at loosening up all the ..running..muscles. sike. i have no idea what they're doing. this is before our 400 meter relay. chelsea . hayley . sandra

hotness::...the skirt wearing part wasn't all that bad. infact i kinda miss wearing a skirt everyday. it was the pantyhose and dress shoes that really got us.

matching shirts. matching skirts. matching medals.

happy birthday joanna!

cute sarah being rebellious wearing jeans and flip flops (both of which were not allowed)

fantastic colors makes the world a better place to live

(wearing them together makes it even better)

the losers. none of them got medals. tyler doesn't seem too upset. emma on the other hand...

leaving regionals. no more skirts, dress shoes, pantyhose or dork pouches. bring on the barefeet and pajama pants.

one fine day (with jo and rach)

i love taking photos in the sunshine. because of all the light the camera takes the picture instantly so you get a photo of the second..not three seconds after that second.

perfect harmony

a satisfying string of words

"The other houses of the street, conscious of decent lives within them, gazed at one another with brown imperturbable faces"

For my english class i am doing a literay analysis on the source from which the excerpt came: Araby.

i do not like doing literay analysises. my words seem feeble and contrived compared to the simple greatness of the source i am attempting to write about.

i feel inadequate!!
