Hello, friends! Summer is officially here, and I’m living it up! I did a lot of cool things this past week that I’d like to share with you. For this summer, I encourage you guys to venture out, try new things, and have fun!
This was my last official day of school. In the evening, I went to a Train, Matt Nathanson, and The Fray concert with my best friend. It was amazing and the music was so good! I would have to say my favorite performer was Train. Their music was amazing and they really got involved with the audience. It was a great way to kick off the summer!
I got my hair cut on Wednesday! My hair is officially in a long bob and I absolutely love it! It’s a lot easier to take care of and keeps me cool in the heat. On Wednesday, I also went to a pool party with some of my friends, which was a ton of fun. It was really nice to be able to hang out with them.
On Thursday, I went to the Shakey Graves concert with my best friend, Savannah. Shakey Graves is a folk rock singer that I’ve been listening to since the fall. He’s really talented and I love his music. The opening act was Carson McHone and her band, which performed really great music. The bass player for Carson was so funny! He would do all these crazy dance moves on stage, and it was amazing. I loved listening to both bands play, despite the crazy loud volume at which they were playing. Savannah and I even got to meet some members of the Carson McHone band! So fun!
On Friday, my dad, my sister, and I went to the U.S. Whitewater Center, which is a center that allows you to do all these fun outdoor activities. We went on a zipline, rafted, did stand up paddle boarding, and rock climbed. We were exhausted when we left, but had a great time trying something new.
Saturday was graduation and my friend and I went to go watch one of our best friends graduate. It’s really crazy to think that I’ll never see some of these people again, but I’m so proud of what they’ve accomplished and I know they’ll do great things.
This morning, I went to church with my family. It was actually our pastor’s last service, so it was definitely emotional. A lot of people were crying, including me! I totally lost my marbles. Again, our pastor and his family are going to move on to bigger and better things, and I know that our church and their family will be taken care of by the Lord.
After this emotional service, my best friend, Julia, came over and we watched a movie and hung out! It was great!
I hope you enjoyed this life update! I’ve been having an amazing time this summer and I know that it’s only going to get better.
In a couple days, I’m actually leaving for Governor’s School, which is a program for “intellectually gifted students” (as they say) that gives students the opportunity to live on a college campus for five weeks and study in their field of interest. I’m not sure if I’ll have the opportunity to blog over these next few weeks, but I will try my best to keep you guys informed.
Thank you for all your support and I will talk to you later!
