I'm a horrible person.

Please don't hate me.

I need to figure out how I can get myself into a regular blogging groove. I do not want to keep disappointing all my loyal fans! (Who am I kidding, I do this to entertain myself).


I learned to do a lot of things this summer. And I also learned some stuff that I probably should refrain from doing in the future. I have decided to let you all in on my extremely wonderful, yet absolutely awkward life. Brace yourself.

1. I learned to pee in the woods. I know what you're thinking. Trust me, I did not choose to acquire this skill. Here's the scoop... This summer, I went on a leadership retreat with my youth group. My best friend and I were the only two youth-aged girls who were brave enough to camp out in the woods of Durham with a bunch of pansy rugged boys. According to the camp director, there was a bathroom on our campsite that we were able to use. She was wrong. Well technically, there was a "bathroom". It was an outhouse with a family of bats living inside. Not to mention hundreds of scary bacteria and insects. I decided then and there I was not going to step foot into that outhouse and potentially be eaten alive by some mutant spider or get a bat tangled in my hair. The only other option was to...dun dun DUN...pee in the woods. It isn't really all that difficult once you get used to the fact that you either pee, or your bladder explodes. I definitely did not want my bladder to burst into a million tiny pieces right in the middle of nowhere. Or anywhere for that matter. Needless to say, I got very...comfortable with my best friend and two female youth leaders on that trip. If you ever need any advice on how to pee in the woods, come talk to me. But for now I will spare you the detailed instructions.

2. I learned that you do NOT drive through Jacksonville to get to New Bern. I must be psychic because I can read your thoughts yet again! Bear with me. I went with my best friend to stay with my Aunt and Uncle in Cove City, North Carolina for a little bit over the summer. One morning we woke up and they had already gone to work. Around lunch time, my aunt called to tell us to meet her in New Bern for lunch. I had just gotten my license and did not know the area well. My aunt gave us directions, but unfortunately directions are not my forte. I was fine until we hit the four lane. I was a little worried about taking the wrong exit. And guess what? We did. About fifteen minutes after we took the wrong exit, I realized we were in fact headed to Jacksonville. Only I could screw up something so easy with such detailed instructions. Thank goodness we were able to turn around and make it to Pizza Hut without injury.

If you actually made it to the end of this blog, bless you. Now you know how awkward I really am. And that is only the beginning. But I enjoy it. I am making memories people!
