Stuff I find Important That has Happened To Me This Year In Pictures!

I was in "Way Off Broadway" for the dinner Theatre

I ate this. But I shared some with Anya. :-)

Me and My my sister made this AWESOME CAKE!

I met Dillon Chase. Son. and yes, thats at MY house!

I bought a ukulele! I want another one... but the one I want is $335, because it's electric/ acoustic. I WANT IT!

I also met the duggars, I met EVERY SINGLE ONE of them, thats like 20 something

I met somebody from Bangladesh, his name is Farazi. He's cool, and I miss him.

These are kind of pointless pictures, but I like them, so I thought I'd share them. :-)


Happy Lunch Time Brian!

Ah yes, it's summer time again. I remember writing last summer that I was going to post about my freshman year in highschool, but life got too busy, and I never posted a single thing.

A couple of months ago, Brian, this cool guy at my church, said he spent his lunch time reading blogs, but I hadn't posted anything new, so I'm guessing he was... disappointed?

So here we go. A little catch up on the more exciting things that have happened since last summer...

1. I started highschool. It wasn't as scary as people made it out to be. I never once got put in a trash can, and I never told any body out of fear that it would happen. I broke a rule and went off campus for lunch a couple of times, but I never got caught. Suckas.

2.I turned fourteen, I know what your thinking, "Daniella is only fourteen?! What?" Yeah, I get that alot. It kind of sucks, because most of friends are getting their permits and they're able to get jobs, but I'm still not old enough.

3. The band I was in but never wrote about (Forever and a Day) is no longer a band. We didn't "break up" like famous bands do when they hate each other, we just kind of stopped. (Why? see number three.)

4. My youth group (formerly Remnant Youth) went through some changes. Our name was changed to OnEightYouth (180), meaning when you get saved, you make a 180 degree turn in your life, not a 360, because then you would just be right back where you started. Also, the age limit was originally twelve to twenty one, but it got changed to twenty. Sure, it was only a year difference, but it made a difference in our band. G.O., our drummer, was 22. Our guitarists were both 19 and about to turn 20. This meant that they would be booted out of youth group. Our band was a youth sponsored band, so we were SQUASHED. But hey, I'm kind of glad, it was so stressful, and (guys if you're reading this, sorry.) they got on my nerves SO BAD!

5. I got a part in the school play, "Maybe, Baby it's You." It was a small part, but it was a part none the less. I played the part of woman. Nope, I didn't have a name, and I was quite disappointed because I thought I as cast as an extra. But, I was wrong, I was in the opening scene, and I represented a majority of women, who have so many expectations for the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with. They create in their minds, the "Perfect Man," and as time passes, they have to lower their expectations.

6. I was on the Principals Honor Roll for earning a 4.3 GPA and ranking number 18 in my class. I'm not trying to brag, I wasn't expecting to finish my year off that great, so I'm actually quite surprised.

8. I lettered in choir. I originally thought Letters were for athletics, but no, you can letter in choir, and I did.

9. I finished my freshman year in highschool with ALL of my required credits.

10. I enrolled in a college course for the next school year, so I am officially a college student, with an ID number and everything.

11. I found out I'm going to Oregon for this years Pioneer Boot Camp! I even get to go with one of my best friends. I am so organized this year too! I have a notebook.

12. I got my first real live babysitting job. I mean, sure, I babysit my nephews and neices sometimes, but I sometimes, excuse me, most of the time, don't get paid. This job is FOR REAL.

13. I finally posted a blog. Win? I think so.

Love, Daniella

Fill My Cup Lord

It seems that lately everyone needs a refill from God. When did I start to realize this? Well, shortly after summer ended and school started back up again, everyones fire seemed to have burned out. Is it the temptation for the things of this world? or is it the lack of time spent in the church. All I know is that us, as in this world, are in desperate need for revival. I'm not the only person who has taken notice of this. But how can we start something extra ordinary for God?

What is the true meaning of saved? I grew up knowing that to be saved, you have to repent of your sins, and to repent means to ask for forgiveness and turn away from your sins... well at least thats my definition. But when you repent and turn away from your sins, you are turning away from it, not making a decision to turn away just for "a little while." Kind of like a pair of shoes. If they are torn up, dirty, and old and you decide to throw them away, you aren't going to reach into the garbage can later so you can wear them again. Once their gone, their gone. Or at least thats how it should be. Right? But there are so many people in this world that think once their saved, they'll always be saved no matter what. But thats wrong, and maybe thats why so many people feel so far from God. Even the little things that may seem fine and safe to you could be disastrous in the end. Little things such as, lets say, cussing. I don't know about yours, but my bible says cussing is a sin. They are evil words. And where does evil come from? Anything evil is of the devil. (Get it? D + Evil = Devil.) So every time you swear just a little bit, you are pretty much speaking the devils language. Do you get what I'm trying to say? Also, gossiping is a huge problem these days. Why can't people mind their own business anymore? Whatever happened to privacy?

There is a line between us and the things of this world, and everytime we cross that line just a little bit, for anything that is ungodly, we are opening the door to sin just a little bit more. Soon you won't be able to resist temptation and you'll backslide. So we need to close that door and step far away from that line. We need change. In order to see change, we have to change first.
Check your heart. It's something we all need to do... and once this happens... we can LET THE FLAMES BEGIN.

Rain Rain Go Away Come Again Another Day

Ugh. why won't the sun come out? Every day this week it has rained. It just makes me sick, it's all gray and gloomy outside. Why can't there just be Juicy Sunlight outside?! (Like my words? Juicy.) All I want to do is go outside... and thats very rare considering the amount of time I spend indoors. Now I here thunder, which means lightning, which means I need to hurry things up! There isn't much to write about. Tomorrow is highschool registration, I can't wait! Ok maybe I can. Then My parents are going out of town for the weekend so I'm not sure what I'm gonna do. I really want to go to Abq. for outreach for broken but I still have to ask my parents. If I don't then I probly will go to my sisters house and chill. But thats too boring. I'm so CONFUSED! help me! Well I think I'm gonna go see if one of my neighbors is home.
Peace out suckas!

The Peaceful By and By

Today was Lain's bridal shower... I had lots of fun! I am still extremely tired though. I woke up at five am (!) because I was feeling sick and failed to go back to sleep. Now it's just after three and the only energy I have is from the short twenty minute nap I took earlier today and the party food, so I could pass out right now, but if I did I won't be able to fall asleep tonight. This stinks.

So I really want to create another blog for my bows... but I don't know if anyone will see it. I don't even know if anyone is reading this blog. Is anyone? Even if I did I would have to come up with a super spiffy name you know? Any Ideas? I have a few but I will keep them to myself!

I can't wait until we get our computer hooked back up! It was broken so we've been using my mom's work laptop that still needs a bunch of updates so i can't put anything fun on the blog :-(
Hopefully soon I will get a chance to add some fun gadgets!

Well I better go get ready for youth... I'm leaving in like fifteen minutes. I think we have a guest speaker tonight though so it should be fun. :-) Well, Bon Voyage!

With Love ♥ -Daniella-

Beyond Happy :-)

So today my Mom and I went shopping... but pretty much for nothing haha We just go to look around and see if we can find something we like. But today oh I found something I really like!!! We got a really good deal on a KEYBOARD!!! EEEP!!! It was on sale and it came with a stand and lots of extra goodies... now all I need is a sustain peddle and I'm good to go! Probably only my fellow musicians would appreiciate this... but I'm just too darn excited! I played for like four hours straight. I was threatened though... If I stop playing our actual piano my mom said she would sell it! So I told her i would name it so I would have an emotional attachment to it that way she could never let it go!!! I also gotta give a shoutout to my Daddy for letting us buy it... even though he'll probably never see it.

So besides being joyful.. I'm also quite scared... there's only twenty days until my first day of highschool (freshmeat)! Another new shool. Great. But this means i have a chance to start fresh and start sharing my faith without being intimidated. I'm planning and praying that I can go in strong and unashamed and win souls for Jesus!!!

Represent! Get Crunk!

PS. I have decided to name my Keyboard Looney Tuney and my piano Looney Out-of-Tuney haha get it!?
