My mind is full.

It just really, really is. I have these ideas, these thoughts, these theories. But you know what really gets frustrating? My inability to express these thoughts as well as I'd like. I'm not exactly gifted in eloquency and some time's it's not even that. Sometimes I can just hardly know what I'm thinking and these thoughts that are *so* interesting in my head don't come out on paper or in words how I'd like them to. Does anyone else ever feel like that?

So anyways, it took me a little while to get around to posting this. But Thursday-Saturday afternoon I was at the homeschool conference with my mom and Morgan. I had an amazing time. There was a really great speaker named John Stonestreet. He is really into worldview and apologetics and debate. Yeah, I'm quite fond of that stuff ^_^ He had several sessions which Morgan and I went to. The three that stood out to me were one on Postmodernism and another on God's plan for your life and another on why your worldview really, really matters.

Anyhow, he has really, really got me thinking. I started to type up my thoughts, but then I decided that(like I said above), they aren't going to come out like I want them too. They aren't going to make hardly any sense if I type them out. Plus, I can hardly get my mind around it. So, I'm going to wait until I have a better picture in my head to post about it,lol.

So, back the to conference... One night they had a really big swing/line dance night for the teens. IT WAS SO AWESOME. Like seriously. It's one of my favorite things to do. AHHHHHH ! The teacher was great and had a really good set up for teaching. Morgan and I concluded that we want to take lessons. I really want to be awesome at it,lol ...and, that would be a fun PE credit =D The other night they had a teen game night. It was actually quite fun as well. We ended up playing Pictionary, pencils(spoons played with pencils, lol) and killer. We met one really nice family and then a bunch of kind of annoying girls. But yeah, it wasn't that bad, lol . The only thing I was disappointed about was that I met a lot of really cool people, but I didn't hardly get their name or get to know them. I wish the conference was more like a week long so that you'd have time to make some real friends out of it =/

Actually school wise, I'm really excited about my junior year of highschool. I'm doing like mostly all of my favorites this coming year including: Algebra 2, AP bio, LD debate, worldview and Spanish(hopefully at the CC). That's obviously not all of it, but it's what I'm looking forward too ^_^

So yeah, I'm rambling now. Sorry 'bout that. Conclusion: I had an awesome time at the conference with Morgan =D

It sounds like it would have been an interesting conference. I like apologetics, worldview, and debate too.

P.S. I'm a newcomer to your blog but thought I should comment anyway. If you want, you can check out my blog, I'm homeschooled too.

I feel that way all the time, Emily!! I love this quote from Jane Eyre. The protagonist is asked if she felt "self-satisfied with [her] ardent labors". She answered, "Far from it, I was tormented by the contrast between my ideas and my handiwork. In each case I had imagined something which I was quite powerless to realize."
