newness and old.

Listening to: Beautiful Disaster by Jon McLaughin.
Quote love: "And when you need it most, I have a hundred reasons why I love you." Jars of Clay. (this quote is on my wall right now. current favorite.)

Hey lovelies! Sometimes I feel like it's been ages since I've been around the blog world, which is usually completely not even close to true. Anyways, there's some fun stuff that you might want to be clued in on.

First thing: this is my birthday weekend. I'll be offline for most of it, doing fun things like Ikea and Jungle Jim's. I do have something fun scheduled, mostly about fifteen and being all nostalgic and whatnot.

And speaking of nostalgia, I think I'm gonna be sharing a little more about my summer in Jordan. It's been right in front of my face lately, what with planning this summer, talking to my friends Mimi and Chris, and silly little things, like the cut-out of Woody on my wall, which reminds me of Toy Story 3, which reminds me of watching it in theaters with Mimi and Philip and Paul, which makes me miss the summer all over again. SO if you feel like seeing some photos and hearing memories, then please stick around next week. :)

Also speaking of nostalgia, I set up a Twitter today. (This is only nostalgic because I'm following Queen Rania from Jordan. Other than that, it's a completely normal thing.) You should maybe follow me or something like that. I'm slightly scared to publish my first tweet because, really, what do I say?

 My new baby, the 50mm, is so amazing. I took all the shots in this post with it, and it just keeps getting better. I'm have a slight bit of trouble with the focus, but it's improving. I love it like crazy.

Have a happy weekend, and I'll be back around Sunday afternoon-ish!

    And in response to your question on my blog:
    Sorry, Will's twitter was deleted a year ago by the admin or some meanie who thought he was a fake. BUT I have better news for you! Skandar has a twitter! He's @skandarkeynes. Nothing else to it really. Georgie's twitter was deleted by some meanie a few days ago...so sad. But hey, there's still one left!
