Just a few days ago, I turned thirteen. Everyone has told me that this birthday is the “Big Thirteen”. I guess I’m supposed to be turning into a woman now. Although it sounds extremely cliche, I really don’t want to grow up. Wouldn’t it be nice to sometimes imagine yourself into wonderland with characters like Peter Pan, Wendy, and of course, Disney’s little Diva, Tinkerbell. I haven’t been blogging for a long time, seeing that I have been so busy with my summer activities. Just yesterday I returned from a small trip to my friend’s country house up in Walton, New York. It was beautiful there, but sometimes I felt as though my friends were on their phones a little too much for my own taste. Not to be humble – I love my own phone too, and spend a considerable amount of time on it, just like many other teenagers. But with the sun in the sky, a fresh-water pond, and other people to be with, I would have liked them to take a break from vinescope and Instagram to play a game. Of course we spent time doing other things too off of the phones, but Saturday morning felt like a waste of time, excluding the fun games of Apples to Apples.
I just found out that I have gone completely off topic about growing up, although it somehow relates with the use of phones. 😛 Anyway, talking about growing up it cheesy, so pretend that I have changed my article’s title to: Summer Vacation!
This summer I have gotten into drawing and painting – I began obsessing over it this past January, and have been reluctant to put my sketch pad down ever since. Here are some pictures of my recent drawings:
These are a few out of many. My cousin Mae, who lives in Montana, came down to stay with me for eleven days, too. We had a lot of fun going to the Hudson River, New York City, Shopping, Photo shoots, watching Disney Movies, and so much more! It was a really fun week! Here are a couple of pictures:
Oh – Did I mention that we got the best things ever – ACTUAL MERMAID TAILS!? We were on the internet, talking about our mutual love of mermaids and wish of becoming them someday 😛 and we found a website called Finfunmermaid.com. Although they were expensive the green and blue mermaid tails were great and worked amazingly. Here is a picture of my two cousins, Hannah(10), Mae(13) and I about to jump in the water with our amazing mermaid tails!
We were altogether a week later in my grandmother’s country house in the Adirondacks! It was amazing, and the tails were so fun! Later in the summer, my family and I are going on a roadtrip beginning in Denver, Colorado. We will be doing that beautiful loop for two weeks in August, Hiking, Horseback-riding, swimming, and taking pictures. Right now, my grandfather, Pops/Karl, is here in New York until this Tuesday. It’s lots of fun hanging out with him, enjoying the sun, and going out to eat! I’m having tons of great times here – Comment how your summers are going, because who doesn’t love a break from work and school? I can’t wait to hear your stories!
