Alright, you get my point. The past few days were slightly icky.
Yesterday I lost a memory card with pictures on it that I really wanted. It contained dozens of pictures, including ones from the 'afore stated flammkuchen adventure I talked about and wanted to write a post on. Now the only photo of that cooking experience that remains is located in that blog post. Honestly, the pictures on that memory card weren't that great, but it's just the fact that the reason I lost that memory card yesterday is completely and utterly all my fault for being so messy.
Sorry for ranting; I'll end here. The moral of the story? I have already begun organizing my ridiculous piles of fabric, jewelry supplies, and schoolbooks.
That's mostly bad news, so how about I talk about some good news.
Like how today I got a day off of school and our family took a nice trip to Hilo, a town about two hours away. It's sort of a family tradition of ours to drop by there every few months, and this trip, for me, was extra special. We woke up early, and the first part of the drive was filled with sleeping and silence. Then, after picking up some take out food and consuming it ravenously, Michael and I finally came to life and began acting like ourselves. The rest of the way there I talked my head off, laughed until I cried, and received anxious looks from Michael when I acted like a maniac -- yes, it was a good drive. We did not listen to music the whole way, but that's okay because Michael and I are pretty good substitutes. We reminisced past favorite songs and sang nearly every song in Leeland's first album, laughing when we messed up and happily surprised when we hit the same notes and cadences simultaneously.
It was wonderful to get away from school and other distractions and just have time to talk and laugh and live. Despite all of the bad moments in a week, I am so grateful that it's the good ones I usually remember.
Rather then attempt to explain any further, I made a video for you all to enjoy.
It's my first attempt at a film with Perry, so please excuse the out-of-focus and amateur scenes, please.
P.S. Thank you so much for all of the sweet comments on my recent posts! Let's just say comments make me ridiculously happy.
