Bursts of Awesomeness

     These past two days have been a whirlwind of awesomeness. It seems like that's how my whole summer has been: little spurts of intense fun preceded and followed by long stretches of boredom. I apologize for not blogging in a while, but it's not because I haven't been working on any posts, or because I have nothing to say. I have plenty to say! It just feels like I have no time to say it! Well, hopefully I'll have time to say everything I want right now.
     On Wednesday, I went to Hershey Park with my youth group like we do every year. This year was especially awesome since MF is now part of my youth group and she makes everything more fun. We didn't go on as many rides as I usually go on when I'm at Hershey Park, but it was okay because the rides we did go on were fun and we just had fun hanging out with each other.
     Then yesterday, I went to Ohiopyle with MF, SE, and AP and, I'll be honest, I kind of wasn't expecting to have a lot of fun I guess because of my last experience going rafting where we all fell out of our raft multiple times, but the day seriously exceeded my expectations by a million percent. I'm sure SE will want to tell you all about it, so I'll keep my descriptions brief. I do want to say that AP's brother is one of the best raft guides ever, which I guess seemed weird to me because I always just think of him as "AP's brother" and not "a trained white water rafting professional". Also, everyone at Ohiopyle is super nice and helpful and friendly, or at least almost everyone. Lastly, if you've never been, I highly recommend it, and GET A RAFT GUIDE! If you try to go without a guide, you WILL fall out of your raft at least once, probably more than once, and there will be disarray amongst your raft because unless you're a professional, you don't know what you're doing, and don't even think you can "figure it out". Just get a guide. It makes things so much better and easier and more fun. I swear. The first time I went with my youth group we didn't have a raft guide, and like I said earlier, we all fell out and no one knew what in the world they were doing.
     Anyway, it's been a great week, and the fun is actually not over for me for once. Tomorrow I'm having another yard sale, and hopefully I'll have a bit more traffic and make more than eight dollars since it's the weekend of our minuscule town's one claim to fame, The Peach Festival, so there will be hundreds of people coursing through our streets. Then on Sunday, I'm off to New York (upstate, not city) to celebrate the retirement of an old family friend of my Dad's. The last time I was up there was when I was about six years old, so it'll be cool to see it all again and see if I remember anything. The one thing I do remember about my Dad's friend is that every time we visit him, or every time he visits us, he always brings these outrageous types of candy from around where he lives. Like sour candy toothpaste, and a little clipboard with candy paper and pencil! There will probably be no candy this time since I'm now seventeen, but who knows!
      One more thing: Remember the two trips? The missions trip and the trip to Disney World? Well, I did a lot of thinking, and decided to only go on one of the trips, so now I'm just going on the missions trip, and MF's going too!! Yay! It's going to be such a great experience. And MF and I are going to have so much fun together helping people. I think it'll be a great end to our senior year and I can't wait.
     Well, that's all for now!
