two - your first love

I don't remember his name.

It was kindergarten. My best friend's name was Margaret. She had long dirty-blonde hair. I also knew this other girl named Brooke. (She was the one who whispered swearwords in my ear one day. I remember it vividly.)

I don't remember his name.

But I know it started with an M. He wasn't very nice. Looking back, his face was creepy, and slightly snake-like. But he could DRAW. Such talent! Those are the qualities I remember about my "first love". Mean, snake-like, and artistic. 

Does that count? It's a lame story. But here's a really good song:

one - introduce yourself with pictures and words.

Caroline Grace: A Brief Overview

the facts
age: too old to sit at the kids table, too young to grow up.
height: 5'6''
nickname: Carlie, with an eye ee at the end.
has lived in: two states.
loves: babies, fireworks, and umbrellas.
is often found: singing, writing, reading, or being dramatic.
believes: this Church is true.

the family
oldest of five + two parents, and my siblings know me best. They remind me of that daily with their insight. Nothing escapes their notice. Also, we're eternal, which rocks.

the goals
A college degree.
Happiness in family life.
To write a book.
To make friends.

and some random things
I'm very impatient.
I enjoy spinning around in circles in the grass and then falling down and feeling the world spin around me with my eyes closed. It makes me feel like I can control the ground.
I'm crafty and I like cutting things out of magazines.
Autumn is my favorite season.

idea swiped from: sydnee + meg + everyone else who is doing this thirty day blogging thing. I figured it was a good way to get started again.

I am coming back.

Oh yes, this is for real. How long has it been since I said anything? Who knows. But I know you've all just been aching (cue: sarcasm) for me to come back to this lil' blog o' mine ("I'm gonna let it shine...this little blog o' mine...I'm gonna let it shine...<---[attention deficit conquers again!])

Ahem. Anyways.

I'm back.

And I'm preparing a post. A good one.

So, watch out.


(i missed you.)
