Le Outtakes {take nine}

Hello, everybody! Happy Wednesday! Here comes my day, full and unedited.

It began with my sister leaping onto my bed and announcing that it was... morning. As you can imagine, I was very thankful because I knew there was no way I could have figured that out myself. Then I neglected to read my Bible. A very bad decision, as it always is. School was as usual, except with some Big Band radio on Pandora today! It makes me want to go back to 1940, become a dancer and singer, and then return to 2011 after a week or two. During piano practice I yelled at my sister. Yes, I told you this was unedited. See, patience is a virtue. A virtue that I don't really possess. I try and I do my best, but sometimes I just lose it.
History class came around and I got to see Habu, Liz and Sophi. Yay! A little socialization is always refreshing after being home all day.
The afternoon came and I broke down for a ten-minute period of time. I'm just kind of feeling the weight of something and don't know what I am supposed to do. I can't say what's going on, but just pray for me and this situation. The situation more than me for sure!
My mom, Libby and I got to go to Bodypump at the gym this afternoon. It was lovely! Oh, and for those of you who don't know, Bodypump is a weight class at my gym that I LOVE!!! I realized as I was burning through some squats, that any remaining anger, hurt, or strong feelings emerge when I pump. They come back to me in a wave of overwhelming emotion, as if I need to deal with them or get rid of some problem, even if I thought it was dealt with already. There is one *person* in particular that I am feeling anger towards, while at the same time missing incredibly, wanting to ignore, mentally punch, yell at, run away from and bolt back to, all at the same time. I thought I had dealt with this, but I didn't. I had my ten minutes of anger, a few days of pondering, and then I tucked it away somewhere and tried to forget about it. I put it away; I shelved my feelings, but I didn't really do anything about it. What can I do, though? I'll figure that out soon enough, I guess.

After showering, which was painful because of my blisters, I fishtail braided my hair. And no, they are not perfect. They are perfectly imperfect. It was the two-miniute version because I thought we were watching FRINGE as a family. That didnt' pan out. Oh well.

Here are my perfectly imperfect braids:

They don't really look like they're supposed to because my hair is so thick, but I'll have to work on it. Oh, and by the way, don't get worried that it will look like this if I ask to braid your hair. :) I can do better! ;)

Anyway, I'd better be off to grab some chai tea! Libby has been saying every five minutes "come on Lindsey, let's go!", so I think I'd better go now. Blogging always takes longer than I expect.

One thing before I go. Check out these awesome fall magazines! I know it's still a bit early for this stuff, but I couldn't resist. :) (we found them at the library today!)

Much Love and a hug to you all!!

  1. Your blogging makes me happy! Just sayin'.

  2. Hi, Lou!!
    I feel absolutely horrible that I haven't read all of your outtakes post. I'm pretty sure you're one of two or three who actually stuck to doing them for the entire fourteen days. Needless to say, I'm not one of them. It's awful because I started them, didn't I? Yeah...I'm a terrible outtakes person. Anyway-changing-the-subject-because-this-isn't-going-to-help-me-at-all...
    I. Love. This. Post. And all your other posts, too! And I don't think you're just a little girl trying to sound like an adult {like you said in your first outtakes post} I think you're absolutely wonderful just the way you are!!
    Also, I'm taking Practice PSAT's too! Except I'm a Sophomore. Oh well, and, my sister wakes me up in the morning. And, I take piano, and yes, I've yelled at her while I was playing the piano. Oops. Sorry, Joy! And yes, I've neglected reading my Bible at times. But I'm getting better, I must say.
    So yes, we're like sisters, you and me. And, I totally did my hair in fishtails yesterday! My hair isn't very thick {well, that's what I think, anyway} and it's very easy to comb out, so my fishtails look relatively normal. I guess. I think. I'm trying :P
    Great posts, dearie, and much love and a hug to you too :))

    {pee ess: For your fishtails, maybe you should try combing out your hair before you do them? Or you can take smaller strands of hair for each little braid. That way, it'll look more like a fishtail. You're doing a great job!!}

  3. Thank you so much, Jocee! Well, it sounds like we're pretty alike. :) Thanks for you comment! It pretty much made my day :)) Well, I love your blog. Period. It's so great!! Oh, and I must agree with you that William Mosely is pretty cute. ;)) I, too love Narnia. I'm one of those kids who tried forever to figure out how to get through the back of my wardrobe. :)

    Anyway, thanks again, and thanks for reading!!!!

    {P.S. good idea! I'll try it next time!}
