Random..and Pictures :P

I hate the blogger update, I've been not updating it and not updating it for a long time..And now it did it without me telling it to.. haha :P It was nice and simple before, but now its confusing XD :P 

But, things have been going pretty good lately! Im working my butt of with my dad to get a job finished so I can get payed some dough. ;D My brother and I are working at some really big (very very pretty) ranch house with a 350 foot long fence :P They're yard is massive, and ive seen coyotes walking around in it!! We are sanding, scraping, priming and tomorrow painting it! I am putting all the money I earn to try and get into a debate camp in June :P The work is very very grueling :P Even my brother said that its probably one of the hardest jobs hes done, (and that's saying a lot, cuz hes worked quite a few hard jobs) I think its because its been really freaking hot, and you have to bend down all day, and its on kind of a hill, and its really dusty, and having to hand sand and scrape..its hard :P  But if I don't make enough money in time, (which is likely :\ ) Ill put all the money toward either a camera, or get my pictures taken for my modeling portfolio. (Long story, but I am basically considered a model, I have an agency, but I have not had my portfolio, which means I wont really get a job..haha) Whatever :P Once I get my portfolio, hopefully Ill start getting some! :D
Me :P 
 Firework, I took this picture in Disneyland :)
 And this is actually a pretty old pic that I just edited recently :P

Welp, those are all the pictures I have to post for now :P I have not been taking nearly as many pictures as I used to :( 
But, imma sign off now!!
Thanks for reading!! :D

Question of the post!!

What is your dream job? :)

So on the sixth, I went to California with some super awesome people. :D My dad, sister and I woke up at the crack of dawn and trooped bleary eyed to find some coffee. After that we loaded up the van and drove to one of my best friend's house and met with some of the other people that were coming, loaded them up, dispersed into various cars, drove to the airport, got our bags checked, went through security and got more energy. (aka coffee)  By this time the group consists of, my bestie, his mom and dad, his brother and brother's wife, their three children, her mom and dad, his sister, her husband, his other sister, her husband, their two children..aaand...My sister and her boyfriend! :D Big group eh? ;) I love em :)

It was my second time to step out of the cool air conditioned airplane into the warm California air.. Then we got to the hotel and unpacked..The next day...The Disneyland time began :D It was so awesome!! :D I have been to Disneyland once before, but didn't get the complete feeling of it...It was Thanksgiving weekend, so the place was super full, I only went on like two or three rides, and barely got to see or go anywhere :P It was awesome getting to be there and all, but just not....Diiiiiiisney. This time was not like that at all :D It was amazing :D There were not a lot of people the entire time (I mean, there were a couple of days that were kind of full, but nothing that compared to the first time) :P Basically, it was the best week EVAR :D

The whole feeling of Disney was awesome :) Seeing some of my favorite childhood characters everywhere, the cuteness, the rides, the friends, the color, the feeling, the smell, the hidden Mickeys, the joy, the happy kids, (or happy teens in my case XD) everything. It.Was.Awesome. :D I got quite a few pins, and traded them around, got a "first visit!" pin and got the whooole disney feel :D

I finally reached 900 followers on instagram! ;) If you havent followed me, you should ^,^ I do follow back, and dont ghost follow :D 

Well, I feel like this post has gone for long enough...So I'll sign off now! :) 

Question of the Post!! :)

Have you ever been to Disneyland? If so, how was it?? :D

Thanks for reading! :)

Love ya all!

Some late night thoughts..

I had a pretty great Sunday today! Went over to a family's house from church and hung out talking about politics, Christianity, and art. haha :P While there, two of the adults started to talk to me about the collage I am thinking about, and one of them mentioned "It would be cool to have a young person from our church go to Patrick Henry." and I was just like "Wow..That sounded so big.." The thought of the collage is big..and probably the biggest thing I have ever tried. Lot's of things go through my head like "What if I fail?" "What if I get in..And can't handle the classes?" "What if I get in and can't handle being so far away?" "What if I am so scared of getting in that I don't actually try my hardest?" "What if I put a lot of time into this and don't actually get even close?" "What if I'm putting so much thought into this, and I don't actually even end up putting the application in?" So many questions..and I can't answer them..I cant just Google and find the answer..I can't look it up on Yahoo and find someone who's asked the same question..The only person that I can ask is God..I am praying about the situation, and I know that he will give me whatever he knows is best for me in the end. But at the same time, I am kind of scared. So, please pray for me :) Pray that I'll know what to do, that I wont worry too much and give myself an ulcer...(Because knowing me..I'd do that...haha) and last but not least, please pray that I would continue to look to God for guidance :)

Now that I have gotten that out, here is a couple of the pictures that I have taken lately :)

So, you'll have to comment and tell me what you think! (Also, if they actually loaded..Because sometimes they don't load.. and it's very annoying >...<)

Tomorrow I am gonna be going to a BBQ with some awesome people for Labor Day! :) My family doesn't really ever do anything for Labor Day..haha :P But it should be fun! :) I love those people XD :D

But, I don't really have much to say now :P Soo...

Question of the post!!

What is a movie that you have really been wanting to see?

<3 <3 <3
Love ya!!

Ramblings of a lazy blogger..

I know I have not posted a real post in far too long dear followers..So, as I sit in the depths of despair and darkness I offer you my utmost apology, pouring my very heart out and soaking my pillow with weeping...Either that I'm just stuck in my bedroom saying "sorry for not posting dudes" with a burnt out light bulb..Choose whichever story you see fit :P

Life has been pretty great lately :D Had some sad moments, some happy ones, goofy, amazing, and even bittersweet, But all in all...I'd have to say I had a great summer :D Right now I am studying (and studying..and studying...) to get into the collage of my dreams. Patrick Henry. I know I haven't been focusing on my school as much as I should if I really want to go there..But I'm going to try and work on that more in the following months :) I have some mixed feelings about the collage.. (seeing as it is in Virginia...) On one hand, I don't want to leave my friends, family, and half my life behind, and on the other hand my brain is telling me "Go for it! If you don't at least try, you'll really regret it in 5 years!" So..I've got a little blender in my head with a bunch of thoughts crammed in there spinning around :P

My camera broke..It wont recognize if there is a memory card in there..So now I am only using a phone camera that my friend Wesley gave me :) It has 5 megapixels, and works fine for me ;) Most of my recent pictures are on my Instagram...and I hardly do much with them now :P

Im officially going to be in Disneyland in 4 days!! I'm pretty excited about that :D I will be gone from the 6th-13th :D I will be there with Wesley, his family, my older sister Shay and her boyfriend, Benny :) Its gonna be a blast. (and I am going to take maaany pictures) ;)

Something else that I am wildly excited about is the fact that I get to go to a Blue October concert. Blue October is one of my favorite bands. (If not my favorite) Justin's music has so much feeling and heart...Its just amazing...and I am so happy that I get to see him in person :) I so wish I could meet him...And ya know what? Someday I will! Thats not even a maybe or a possible. I will meet Justin Furstenfeld if it kills me. :P
You see that face? That is the face of someone who literally pours every single feeling into their music. He's someone that I really admire, because despite his hurt and issues that he has to go through, he really does write music to help people in pain. He's the kind of person that I can really just describe as a beautiful person. Even if that does sound cheesy or anything. It's true. 

Question of the post!!!

What band are you literally dying to see in concert? 

Well, I had better sign off!! Thanks for reading! :)
<3 <3 <3
Love ya all!!

instagram!! Also...Starting up again?:)

TSo, last night I was sitting on my bed poking around on my touchpad when I randomly remembered my old blog...So I checked it..and reading all the comments on my other posts inspired me to start this up again :)
I know its been a while since I last posted...haha :P

My summer has been pretty busy, I've been spending time with friends, doing school, or other things like that!

One thing that Ive been having quite a bit of fun with is Instagram ;) You should totally add me on it! (My name is elisa_kate) I've been working to my 700 followers goal, and am at around 670 at the moment :P Hopefully ill be at 850 by the end of summer! ;D If you could help me get to my goal, I would be most happy ^,^ (I follow back too!) Ive had it for quite a few weeks, but didn't actually use it much because I didn't have a phone camera :P But Wesley gave me his old phone (that i only use wifi) and I use that :D Its only got about 5MP, and its not an incredible camera..But I'm still over joyed that I have one :D :D You should follow me!! :) I don't ghost follow, and always give out likes and follows :D Sooo...Waddya say? ;D ;D

How's your summer been?:D

But...Ill try and post sometime soon! Until then, ttfn!!!
<3 <3 <3
Love ya!!

Pulp Mills and other things :)

Well, its that time again! The time that I *finally* post, and thank you all profusely for not un-following my blog ;) :P And yes, Im still alive :P
Life has been pretty good lately, there have been their up-sides, and their down-sides, but all in all...Life is good :)
The weather was warmer the other day, and I was  finally able to wear my shorts, t-shirts and sunglasses! But...It didn't last :( I got a little bit of a burn, and even looked a tiny bit darker (I tan fast..and loose the tan even faster..) I was happy for that little bit of sunshine though! :D
(this is what my backyard looks like...) ;) :P

My bro and I did walk down to the old pulp mill a little from our house, and I found some pretty legit places for pictures :D Here's a few that I got down there: Tell me what you think! :)
I don't normally edit my pictures..So, they're not very good..haha :P
Train tracks
This is some of the pulp mill
A moving train..It was sooo loud :P
Pulp Mill

(taken by my bro) Thats me!! XD
Proof that I was near a moving train..haha :P Ignore the horrible pic of me though..Just look at the purty..Train!! 
Forrest :D 

So there you have it! :) I really have been wanting to pick my camera up more :D

Lately, I have been having nightmares every night...Theyre horrible and I wake up half crying and trying to figure out if it were a dream or not..They kind of are having me not want to sleep.. They're so realistic!

I got to serve for two nights at an event at my church :D It was a play that a bunch of boys from the school that's in the church were in :) They did awesome! I didn't actually get to see much of it at all... ( I was kind of busy clearing plates, dishing food, carrying food, washing dishes and filling water pitchers..haha) :P But it was really actually pretty fun! :D My feet kind of hurt by the end of the evening..And the kitchen was like a massive oven..But it was fun :) 

Question of the post!!!

(that sometimes has something to do with the post..and sometime doesn't..)

If you could do one thing right now, what would it be?

Comment with your answer! ;D 

<3 <3 <3
and, something amazing for you....<3

Bucket list and singers :D

I yet again have been able to cross something off my bucket list! :D Last week..I got permanent bright pink streaks in my hair! :D You cant really see them too well in this lighting..But Ill post another one that you can see it better in in a minute ;) But..What do you think? :D 
51) Get streaks in my hair

My hair is a little messy in this one, I parted it to the side more than usual so that the streaks would show up better :P

So there you have it! :D

Not much has been going on lately...Well, I mean, other than school and hanging out with friends :) I love my friends XD
This is my little sister, she and her brothers created this outfit for her..And she ran around for part of the day yelling "Im a ninja! And an assassin...GET IN JAIL!" lol :)
(Just a picture I took in Portland)
I have been very dedicated in watching one of my favorite shows right now...The Voice. I love it XD I love so many people that have been on it... And some of them I don't like quite so much :P I am also pretty proud of my friend who went and auditioned..But didn't make it. I'm sure he did awesome :) 
I'm pretty sure that my favorite is Jamar Rogers. I absolutely love him XD

Him and RaeLynn. :) Ok..Well...Maybe I have a lot of favorites XD

Jermaine Paul
Jermaine Paul....So cool.
Mathai :D
Mathai :D
There are a couple others that I love..But Ill save you from the many pictures I could post ;) But they definitely have their place on my "People I Love" board on Pinterest ;)
But, I have things to do :P I will be going down to the abandoned pulp mill down the street to take some pictures..hehe :P 

Question of the post! :D

What is your favorite kind of music?

Have a great day everyone! :D

Warning! This post is kinda rambly :P

Things have been kinda crazy lately...Just, ya know? Life like I guess :P I've been trying to get algebra more..and have not had a crazy amount of luck :P I guess I'm just feeling kinda discouraged...Discouraged that there are so many people around me with awesome blogs getting lots of comments, discouraged that I just don't understand math...Just little things like that :P Not big things or anything...Just things that have the magical ability to add up..

I'm really looking forward to summer..and wish it would come sooner..I keep counting the months
.and its exactly the same! How can that be??? I want to eat popcicles and wear shorts! I wanna go for walks without coats, I wanna have ice cold cokes! I want sun, I want the beach, I want summmer!!! :P

Im going to be 16 in April...That's weird also :P I know 16 isn't extremely old or anything..But it sounds weird to me..You know, when you are a little 8 year old running around and then stopping to look at the teenagers who seem so old! I'm one of them now! :P I'm looking forward to my birthday..what I want to do is to have some of my friends over and go hiking or something...I absolutely LOVE hiking and think it would be super fun to do that :) How up to it my friends are I don't know...But..I want to do that XD Maybe I'll have a dance with all my friends or something too..Everyone loves dancing! ;)

My neck has been feeling better lately..Yay for the whiplash not being too serious! It doesn't hurt constantly anymore, and as long as I don't strain it or anything my headaches have gone down :) That makes me happy..Cuz it kinda stunk :P

On a side note, I'm sorry if there are a crazy amount of typos or what not in this post,I'm typing this out on my touchpad and I haven't really gotten the hang of this keyboard :P

You know that really great feeling when you feel excepted? :) I love that feeling..When you are so afraid someone wont like you..and then they do..And they give you a crushing hug and make you feel so great! Not because they just want to make you happy or whatever ..But because they really like you :) I love that :)

Well, ill wrap this up now :)

Question of the post!!!

(that sometimes has something to do with the post..and sometime doesnt...)

What do *you* think are some of the greatest feelings in the world? Seeing an old friend for the first time in a while? Finishing a great book? Whatever it is, feel free to comment with it! :D

<3 <3 <3

On things like life :)

You know those times when life just seems to be going so great? You have great friends, awesome family, happy things, and totally amazing wonderful memories that flood to your head when you hear certain songs start to play...Life seems to be looking like that for me..I have recently re-connected with some friends I have not been talking to as much lately, I had an awesome weekend, and everything just seems to be looking up :) 
 Of course, there are a couple of annoying things..But not so much that they are gonna dampen my mood! ;) I got whiplash on Tuesday :P That's one of 'em :P Sure, it hurts..haha XD It doesn't make much  sense that I got it...It was from being in the back of an old school bus with no seat belts..and the driver went over a couple of speed bumps too fast and..yeah..haha :P 

 Iv'e also been missing California..I know I mentioned that a little bit ago..But its still true :P I miss the warmth, the beach, the sun, the..awesomeness :P It also doesn't help that I have been thinking about it more than usual ;) The weather here has been absolutely insane..I mean, it was (seriously) like this..Shorts one day...Snow the next.. Shorts the day after that...and then insane amounts of rain. Like that. Seriously. Now its raining again...I love rain, but this is a little crazy! haha 
I was recently going through and looking at some of my old pictures.. Some of them aren't so great..and some of them I'm still kinda happy with :P Maybe I'm just super picky... But I rarely like a picture I take :P 
These are some older ones (These ones are from April) 

I want a cat so badly. Someday I will have one. Just so ya'll know ;)
I also miss Portland. I mean, I live close enough that I can just take the bus over there..But I have not been there for a while..:P Its seriously my happy place though..Someday, I will take all day and just walk around..Sit in a coffee shop and watch all the people pass by, drink some coffee and look at Pinterest ;D

But I have not really been doing much photography lately..So I don't have very many pictures that I can post :P I'm sure once it gets warmer..and the sun comes out I'll start taking more pictures..But for right now, my camera is just sitting in my room trying its best to look happy with a yellow smiley face sticker stuck to it ;) 

I am so looking forward to when the streets dry up, so I can get my skateboard out of my room and start riding it again :D 
Well, thanks for reading! :D Comments mean the world to me :) Also, there is a poll in the corner..That you can vote on if you want! 
and Now...................

Question of the post!!!

(that sometimes has something to do with the post..and sometime doesn't..)
What are some of your favorite things to do during the Summer? :D 

<3 <3 <3

Eleven ;)

I was tagged in a post by Ava at http://strictlyspidophile.blogspot.com/! You should totally check out her blog and encourage her with coming into the blogging world ;) Her blog is pretty cool! :D And she does some pretty awesome art too ;) :D But anyways! I was tagged in a post, that had this challenge :) The rules are:

1.) Post these rules.

2.) Post 11 random things about yourself. (although this one can be optional)

3.) Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
4.) Create 11 new questions for the people you ask to answer.
5.) Go to their blog and tell them they have been they have been tagged.

And her questions are::: 

If you could pick a different name for yourself, what would it be? 
Hmm..Well, I used to HATE my name..Because no body would pronounce it right (its pronounced "Eeleesuh") and wished so badly that I could go by my middle name (Katherine) But now I'm fine with the name :) I guess when it comes down to it..I wouldn't know what I would rather have..Maybe something cute..Like Denise..:P

What kind of comedy do you like better: slapstick or wit? 

haha..Beats me :P 

Who is your favorite movie villain?

Wow..This is a hard one..I have quite a few favorite villains actually..:P Doctor Octopus being one of them.. But one that really stands out to me is the emperor from Gladiator..He is so crazy..and so creepy..he does such a good job of making me hate his guts :P  

Where do you want to be ten years from now?
Hmm..Well, I think I would like to have a couple kids and be very happily married..:) I would love to be able to have some involvement in Landscape design, and of course, photography :) 

Where would you rather vacation: Tatooine or Rivendell?

Rivendell hands down..haha XD I have never really sat down and watched the Star Wars movies..and to tell ya the truth..I Googled what Tatooine even was ;P 

If you had to choose between acting class or judo lessons, you would pick... 

Judo..haha That would be awesome XD I suck at acting :P

Would you ever join the army? 

don't think I would do so well in the army...i mean, can you imagine me *not* jumping and screaming every time there was some loud noise? Or shooting a gun? Me...? Yikes :P I would most likely loose a hand...Or two..:P

What would you do if you only had a month to live?

I would definitely make the most of it! I would work to cross off as much as my bucket list as I could..I would tell everyone that I love how much they mean to me..I would enjoy every moment of it..and I would like..Totally make the best of it :P :)

You're taking a walk. Do you admire the colors of the foliage as you pass a tree, glue your eyes to the  sidewalk,  spend the whole time chatting with your friend on your Iphone?

I'm a great multitasker..as in, I really notice a lot of stuff that I walk past (The trees, the stuff on the ground, the design of a yard, stuff like that) and I also talk to my friends..haha x) Yeah..So I like looking at things :)

If you could have any pet (including fantasy creatures) what would it be and what would you name it?

I would totally have a cat. I dont really know what i would name it, possibly  Maximus Decimus Meridius...(But shorten it to Maximus) from the movie Gladiator ;) 

Do you follow more than eight blogs?

 Ohhh yes, although I dont comment on a lot of them..Im sorry about that :P I do a lot of them though! A few that I really consistently read are:
