I couldn't resist.
And thanks to Facebook's new timeline layout for helping remember all of my adventures.
In 2011, I dyed my hair red for the first time. It didn't exactly turn out as drastic as I was going for, but it was still a lot of fun :)
In 2011, I attended a pro-life rally and solidified one of my life goals. Something Papa has called me to do is to open a home for pregnant teenage girls. Last January I got to speak about my dream in a video for a pro-life rally we did, and I was reminded of how excited I am for the chance to open the house.
In 2011, I got my permit. I'm technically supposed to get my license in a few weeks, but I doubt that will happen. I'll keep you updated.
In 2011, I went my church's annual purity banquet. We ate, we danced, we laughed a lot. A fabulous time was had by all.
In 2011, I made the Fellowship of the Ring Pact with my best friends Mel and Andrea. Basically we decided we aren't dating in high school and we are going to keep each other accountable when it comes to guys.
In 2011, I attended my church's annual youth retreat. Papa spoke to me so much during that weekend in the mountains.
In 2011, I starred as a serial killer in a one act called A Play With Words. I met some hilarious, gorgeous, awesome people who I am so happy to say I still know.
In 2011, I helped to host a Back to the Future Dance Party. We threw it to raise money for our missions trip and it was ridiculously awesome.
In 2011, I took over the role of my club's president. It's a community service club and a lot of work, but oh so very rewarding.
In 2011, I went on my first missions trip. We went to Cambodia and I can say that it was the most spectacular adventure. It's when Papa first told me He wants me to move to Thailand. And though I was hesitant when He told me, I know cannot wait to do so.
In 2011, I finished my novel. Uritus and the Sword of Fire took me a good three years to complete and I am so very proud that I did.
In 2011, I turned sixteen. And I also threw a crazy-awesome dance party to celebrate said momentous occasion.
In 2011, I stepped out of my box and auditioned for a play called One Night's Dream. And upon being cast in the show, my life would never be the same again.
In 2011, I began my junior year of high school. Stress, exhaustion, and mental breakdowns would be the result.
In 2011, I got my first job at Chick-fil-A. And I've made some pretty awesome friends because of it.
In 2011, I got to meet one of my favorite musicians. We have a mutual friend in common which made it much easier to show up at his house and go into his basement.
Overall, I think it's fair to say that 2011 was a grand success. I made some memories, I made some friends, I made some life choices that are going to make 2012 a very eventful year.
2011 was a success. Here's to hoping that 2012 is even more so.
I'll depart with the first picture of the new year.
