I've been playing The Script's CD on an endless loop for an hour and a half. I love them so much.
My Fourth of July was kind of lame, except Cailin and I baked a cake (: It was red velvet with blue icing and Independence Day sprinkles! Delicious. We didn't really celebrate until July 5th when we went to our friend's pool and grilled out at her house. It was so fun.
We tie-dyed shirts with that same friend on Wednesday in my driveway. My shirt is orange with blue and fuscia sunbursts on it, and I also painted headphones and an iPod on a plain red tee. We had pizza with them and today we're going to paint pottery. I don't know how I feel about that. I guess I'm excited, but I don't know. I have no idea what pottery I'm going to do. Probably a little bowl or plate to put all my rings in.

So, I found my notebook from Power of the Pen. I had a lot of random things to say about the experience. I really liked a couple bits:

Power of the Pen has taught me to open up to the world, and to let out some of my emotions in a creative way.
In an odd way, Power of the Pen brought me closer to my mom. We were never really that close to begin with. I think it proved that I was capable of opening up, and it gave me confidence in myself. And seeing my mom so proud of me really made an impact.
That last part was a bunch in the stomach for me. I don't really tell my mom much, and I spend a lot of the time arguing with her. Last night, I was really mean to her, and she tried to be especially nice for the rest of the night. It was over something really stupid, too.
I must go, our friend is here.
Hope the rest of your summer is great,


  1. Hi there Breanne! This is my first visit to your blog and I can see that you are a unique blogger-which isn't a bad thing at all. =)Was the Power of the Pen a conference you attended or is it a book you have read?
