Speech and Debate awesomeness

YAY! I was looking through Forensic pictures of this past year and basically it's me, me and Elliot, and me and Erika. I have no idea which order they're in, but that's what they are. The one of me is at state quals, the one of me and Elliot is going through extemp mags at practice and the one of me and Erika is at speech showcase. :D Did I mention I am now a very happy speech judge!!! :D YAY!

Martial Arts, Speech and Debate, and of course...LIFE!!!

Hey Ya'll!

I trust life is joyful for you, I can say for the most part it is for me. Actually, lately I've really been into the whole 'life's road' thing. It's kinda cool. :) Allow me to elaborate:

"It's a new road I travel on,
It's a new life I make my own,
It's a new time, a new world, a new beginning,
and I can make it all my own."


"Down a dusty road,
To embrace my fate.
Though the road may wander,
it will lead me to you."

and finally but not lastly...

"...or how the road can seem so long."

Also, I tested for yellow belt at Martial Arts today. Wohoo Meechy! Austin and Louie tested as well, and it was pretty fun. HAHA! oh right, forgot about that part..yea, it was fun. :D

I am also *drum roll... JUDGING MY FIRST TOURNAMENT ON SATURDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm super super super excited about that. It's the KAmiak novice tournament, and I get 8 NFL points for it and the experience and awesome times. I'll be the judge for people older than me, but since I'm in open and they're all'll ROCK! YES!!!!!!! I know already I'm going to LOVE judging. :D

Today we were at the Everett Clinic 40 days for life site for our hour. About half-way through this girl came out, she must have been early twenties I'd say, and she engaged our sidewalk counselor. She was (is, hopefully) 3 months pregnant, and neither she nor her boyfriend wanted the abortion. She hadn't had it yet, and she was scared. She wanted 5 children, but they just didn't have the money right now. She was very friendly but obviously scared, and I'm so sorry we didn't get her name. She walked away for something to eat then came back and went back into the clinic but she was still very friendly. Her appointment was today, and we had to leave before we found out whether or not she had the abortion. I really really hope she just went back inside to talk to her boyfriend, but I just haven't been able to stop thinking about her all day. Please pray for her and her child whom she hopefully decided to keep very hard. I know you all have been praying for the success of the 40 days, but I just can't get her out of my mind. It's so agonizing not knowing if she kept her appointment or not.
Thank you.
