Merry Christmas, you guys! (If anyone actually read my blog, that is. :P) Happy holidays to you all! :D Wow, it seems like Christmas has jumped up on me...anyways, last night we did a Christmas program at our church, and it turned out really cute, I think. My baby brother was a little angel (in the part of the Christmas story where the multitude of angels come to the shepherds) and he sang "Away in a Manger" with some of the other little kids. IT WAS SO CUTE! And bonus, when the angels were supposed to run up the aisle, he just walked behind them, making everyone laugh. :) So cute.

Chapter 5

The next morning, Albus, Peter, Derek, Holly, Andrea, Samantha, and James were sitting at the breakfast table eating, well, breakfast. Albus noticed that Samantha kept looking at Andrea cautiously, and Andrea seemed very uncomfortable.

"Are you all right?" Albus asked as she began to cough. Andrea nodded and took a drink of orange juice.

"I'll be fine," She said between coughs.

"Maybe you should see the nurse..." Peter said slowly. Andrea shook her head.

"I'll be fine, don't worry." She said. Somehow that didn't make Albus feel any better.

The first years had Potions that morning, so they all trudged down to the dungeons. Andrea was in the lead, followed by Peter, then Holly, Derek, and Albus. Holly looked at Derek.

"Oh, Derek, what should I do about...her?" Holly asked quietly.

"Just be pleasant and maybe she'll return the favor." Derek replied.

"But she's just so mean!" Holly stopped and frowned at Derek. "I wish we could change partners." She mumbled. They continued walking, and before long, they had reached the door to their class. The door opened and the gathered first years went in. Proffessor McGlinnin was at the front of the room already, waiting for them.

"Good morning, class," He said with a smile. Albus noticed that his eyes landed on Andrea and stayed there as she walked past his desk. Albus and the rest of the class sat down at their assigned seats and pulled out their potions books. Albus looked over at Andrea as she began coughing again. Proffessor McGlinnin walked over to her and spoke to her quietly, patting her on the back. He nodded his head then went back to the front of the room.

"Today, we'll be learning about certain potions effects on the nervous system." McGlinnin began. Suddenly, a diagram appeared on the blackboard behind him. It was a diagram of the human nervous system.

"As you can see, the nervous system is a complex thing. It looks quite a lot like wiring going through a house. Now, certain potions, like water or fire and a house, can damage the nervous system or just make it function wrong for a period of time. Today, I'll only be telling you the name of the potion and it's effects. You will not be learning how to make any of the more dangerous ones, but we may look more into some of the milder ones." He finished, then pulled a small vile out of one of his desk drawers.

"Now, who can tell me what this is, just by looking at it?" Andrea's hand shot up and McGlinnin smiled. McGlinnin nodded in her direction, signaling that she was allowed to answer.

"It's the potion 'Aravere'" She answered proudly.

"Well done!" McGlinnin said, then took the top off of the vile. He held it out from himself at arm's distance.

"Now, who can tell me how it works?" Andrea's hand shot up again.

"It can enter your body by touch or smell or taste, therefore, it's rather easy to get into someone's blood stream. It gives the body a tingling sensation that gradually increases in strength. It doesn't do much else than that." She finished then smiled.

"Very good," McGlinnin then put the topper on the vile again. Albus sighed and wrote down most of what Andrea had just said on his Potions scroll. He glanced over at Holly to see her slumped over in her chair with her arms folded and her eyebrows close together. Peter was whispering to his partner, and Derek looked like he was doing just fine. Albus looked at his own partner and decided that, although his partner wasn't completely evil, Potions wasn't one of his favorite classes.

My brother is the next great theological mind!

Okay, that's stretching it. :P By a lot. But, the other night, he did say something very deep. So deep, that I have to put it on here.

"But being human means going back to your sinful nature. I'd rather be Christian and be thought of as weird than go back to my sinful nature."

That may not be exact word-for-word, but it's pretty close. Here's MY version of it, meaning my wording.

"Being human would mean reverting back to your sinful nature, because we as humans are born with it. I'd rather be a Christian and be considered weird than go back to sin."

And now you have your lovely quote for the day. ;)

Chapter 4

Albus crawled through the common room door and walked over to the table that Andrea was sitting at. He and the others sat down and pulled out their own homework and began working. Albus glanced over at Andrea's scroll to see what she was working on.

"Potions?" He asked, slightly confused. Andrea quickly covered up her scroll.

"Um, yes." She replied quickly. Albus shrugged and went back to his own work.

An hour later, Peter had finished his homework and was helping Derek. Holly was chewing on the end of her pen, and Albus was finishing up his own homework. Andrea had finished half an hour ago, and was sitting over by the fire. Albus put his scrolls into his bag then walked over to sit by Andrea.

"I think I'm going to make my way upstairs soon," he said. Andrea nodded and stared into the fire. Peter walked over and leaned against the back of Andrea's chair.

"Ah," he sighed, "cozy." The three of them laughed for no apparent reason.

"DONE!" Derek yelled, jumping up from his chair. "Okay, my brain is beat. I'm going to bed." Holly looked at him and tilted her head.

"It's only eight o'clock." She said. Derek shrugged.

"So? I'm still beat." He replied, then ran up the stairs to his common room. Holly shrugged then stretched and yawned.

"You know what?" She began. "I'm a bit tired too. I believe I will go to bed as well." She said then skipped over to the fire. "Goodnight, all!" She then skipped over to the stairs and literally jumped up them. Albus sighed contently and felt his eyelids get heavy.

"I'm going up too, guys." Peter said. He began going up the stairs when he called to Albus and Andrea. "You lot coming?" He asked. Albus nodded and stood up.

"What about you?" He asked Andrea. She coughed then answered, not looking away from the fire.

"I'm not quite ready yet." She replied simply.

"All right, well, goodnight." Albus said, then he turned and walked up stairs.

Samantha slid down the rail on the staircase on her way downstairs. "Weeee!" She said quietly, then gracefully dropped onto the floor. She looked around at the empty common room...and noticed that it wasn't empty. She glanced down at her watch and saw that it was 10:00 p.m. "What in the world is someone down here for?" She asked. She skipped over to the fireplace where the figure was hunched over.

"Uh, hello?" Samantha said and the person looked up.

"Oh, um, hello." It was Andrea, to Samantha's great surprise.

"What are you doing?" Samantha asked, looking at the small cauldron over the fire.

"I could be asking you the same thing." Andrea retorted.

"Oh, well, I have a sleeping disorder, so I just kinda wander around at night." Samantha replied. Andrea nodded then turned back to the cauldron.

"So, what are you doing?" Samantha asked again. There was a pause before the answer.

"Extra credit." She replied softly. Samantha nodded then leaned over to see what Andrea was doing. She seemed to be making a potion. Suddenly, Andrea began coughing.

"You getting a cold?" Samantha asked. Andrea shook her head while coughing. Samantha watched her, not quite knowing what to do. "Are you okay?" She asked slowly.

"I will be." Andrea coughed out. Samantha looked at her warily then shrugged.

"Okay, then I'm gonna go explore. See ya!" Samantha ran over to the common room door and opened it. She stepped out, but not all the way. She continued watching Andrea from behind the door.

Andrea added a few more things to the potion then let it simmer for a bit over the fire. Then, after a few minutes, she took the cauldron off of the fire and poured its contents into a glass on the small table by one of the chairs. Samantha's eyes grew wide as Andrea picked up the steaming cup and downed the potion. Andrea shuddered then set the glass down and began picking up everything else.

Samantha closed the door then leaned against it, breathing hard. "Why did she drink her extra credit?" Samantha asked herself. "Unless..." the more she thought about it, the more she realized Andrea had lied to her. "But why?" Samantha asked out loud again.

"I don't know, but will you please get off of me!" Samantha jumped as the portrait that composed the door yelled at her.

"Sorry..." Samantha said, then began walking away at a brisk pace.

Pictures, pictures, and...more pictures!

This was the first picture I drew in the notebook I got for my birthday this year. :D I was playing with shading, but you dan't see it all that well on here...
Alvin...up to something...see the description for Theodore, and just insert Alvin where his name is. :P
This is a character that I made up for a Sonic fan fiction I'm gonna eventually write. Her name is X, and she's kinda my equivalent to a person in the Sonic world. I think she looks great. :D
This is my bro's character for the before mentioned fanfic. His name is Iggy.
Theodore baked me a cake! This was a picture I drew for my own birthday. :D I think it's cute...but Theo's the cutest. :P

My 9-11 picture.
Manga face!!! I love the eyes!!!
...I guess I liked it so much that I accidentally uploaded it twice...oops...

Wizard! :P What can I say? I was bored and inspired.
This one's for's a terrible drawing of Scruffy. I hope you don't puke on your computer when you see it.
A flower, that I drew in the car. :D I actually started it by looking out the window, and since I could see the reflection of the paper in it, I just drew a kinda squiggly line, and it became the flower. :)
This was drawn in the same car as the flower...a bunch of lines...that make a picture...funky...
This is a Chibbi version of my cousin. Isn't it cute?

This is my baby bro and my cousin, inspired by a real scene where the baby took the big kids hat. :P Yeah, I know, it's not fully with it. :P
This is my interpretation (kinda) of Maximum Ride...cartoon form.
Fang looks bored...:P
Iggy and Gassy are up to no good...I can tell that Gassman's attempt to look innocent is futile. :P

A not fully colored picture of Sonic and Tails. It was for my bro when he came back from camp.
Another not fully colored pic of Sonic and Tails.
This is based on the song "Cinderella" which is beautiful and touching and an awesome song...I'll probably have a post dedicated to it later.
This is Max, Jamie and Miku from my Exo Force Fan fiction, for those of you who have read it.
My bro!!! Isn't he cute? :P

I haven't posted pictures in a while, so there are a lot to show...heh heh...I apologize for not posting them sooner, since I'm almost done with the notebook that I'm in...and started in the one I got for my birthday. :D I apologize for any blurriness in the pictures...I have to take them with my camera, so... I sure have improved...and over a period of months! Just goes to show you that practice really does make perfect. So, keep practicing, and enjoy! :D

EEEEP!!! *girlish scream of happiness* I'VE BEEN PUBLISHED!!!

Okay, okay, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "Your book got published! Mii that's totally awesome!!!" But it wasn't my book. A bazillion years ago, I sent in a picture to Focus on the Family's Adventures in Odyssey department thingy. It was inspired by a certain episode of the radio series. (Which, is totally awesome, no matter what age you are.) And, they've just come out with a new book that has a bunch of things about Odyssey in it. And they just happened to publish some pictures in it as well. AND ONE OF THEM WAS MINE!!! Okay, the picture is totally awful, as far as I can remember, but I've been published!!!! EEEEP!!! And, to add to this happiness, I GOT THE LETTER THAT SAID MY BOOK WAS OFFICIALLY COPYRIGHTED!!!!!! Today is wonderful...and I drew an awesome picture. :P *sigh of pure bliss* I hope that you, too, will be happy today. :D

It's our anniversary!

About, anyways. My tummy ache and I have been together for a whole year! :D *fake happiness* Woo-hoo! It was about this time last year when I got my first tummy ache in this series...or mess...or saga. I call it "Episode 3: Return of the Pain!" :P Last year, between the 21 and the 28, we went to Little Cesar's pizza, and I got my first tummy ache...the beginning of Episode 1...Oh well, at least I'm not moping! I want flowers and get well cards to celebrate, cause if you have a year long tummy ache, you don't get "Get Well Soon!" cards, or flowers. If you have surgery or something like that, you get that stuff. IT'S NOT FAIR! *whines* :P *sigh* Well, I'm off...

*cue whiney voice here*

My teacher is so mean! I was supposed to write this assignment for Grammar class, and she gave me a B!! MINUS! *sniffle* And she said one of my sentences was CRAPPY! *sobs* Her exact word! *sniffle* she's so mean! She didn't even have any sympathy when I produced (semi) real tears! (okay, so they were totally fake...) WAAAAH! *glares at mother--I mean teacher) So mean. JUST BECAUSE I WROTE A BOOK DOESN'T MEAN EVERYTHING I WRITE IS GONNA BE PERFECT!

*Note this message was totally sarcastic*

Monday, September 15, 2008

Well, that's all, folks...

According to the doctors, I'm crazy. But you all already knew that. :P Seriously though, we've hit a dead end. No more. Nothing else we can do. My stomach ache will forever remain a mystery. They have found nothing medically wrong with me, but I think--no, I KNOW that it's NOT in my head. If it was, I'd have a tummy ache all the time, or whenever I thought about the thing that I was depressed or whatever about. But I get a stomach ache WHEN I EAT and AFTER I EAT. So that wouldn't make sense. That, and I think there's a girl with the same thing I have. I have to get more info before I know for sure, but I'm pretty sure that we have the same thing. *sigh* You know what, you'd think I'd feel worse than that, but I don't. I know that there's a plan for my life, and I know I'm not crazy. I know God's gonna help me. I know He'll help all of you too. Prayin'.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please help the families of all those people who were in the World Trade Towers and didn't get out. Please, Lord, help them. Give them courage, and help give them a shoulder to cry on, because You know they'll need it. Lord, help our troops, our President, and help America to open her eyes to the tragedy of it all. Help us all to remember what we're fighting for. Please, Lord, help our troops, keep them safe. Lord, help my family this day, and my friends. Help Rae, VJ, D, Ali, and Xingu, and all the others that I didn't mention. You know them, you love them. And, Lord, please, please, please help the men, women, and children who lost loved ones that day.

In Your name I pray, Amen.

That's how my prayers go, today. Not exactly like that, but along those lines. I remember, vaguely, what happened. I remember that the towers fell while my mom watched news in the kitchen. It was Fox news. She watched. She looked at it, shocked, I guess, then I remember tears. I don't remember if I cried, I can't remember that. I remember that the news was on all day. I remember that Mom couldn't watch it all day, so she went to her spinning wheel and began to spin. She spun a lot of yarn that day, then knit it into a scarf later. She calls it her "9-11" scarf.

This morning, after I brushed my hair, I came out of the bathroom and looked up at the T.V., just in time to see the World Trade Towers coming down. It was a recorded video on the news. Replaying it. I felt my breath leave me. I sat down at the table and poured my cereal, trying not to cry. I might have, a little though. But I didn't let anyone see it. We left the house, right after three kids had said something about their dad who had died in the collapse of the Towers. The last words said were from the girl. "We love you, daddy." A tear slipped out.

Today, my friends, I take my hats off to those men and women who are serving our country. (Figuratively speaking) And finally, MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Chapter 3...again :P

Albus was practically being dragged across the lawn by his skrewt as it pulled and tugged against the leash it was on. He and Andrea were sharing a Skrewt, Derek and Holly had one, and Peter was by himself, it looked like. Albus felt bad for him. He was so teeny, and that Skrewt really WAS dragging him.

"Poor Peter..." Andrea said what Albus was thinking. Hagrid was chasing after him and his Skrewt...who was now dragging him through the mud.

After the Care of Magical Creatures lesson, the kids quickly went to clean up. As they walked to their common room, they bumped into Samantha and James.

"How were Skrewts?" Samantha asked with a smile. Albus, Andrea, Peter, Derek, and Holly all glared at her.

"You were the one that yelled, weren't you?" Peter asked. Samantha nodded.

"It was completely obvious." James began. "I mean, she's the only one in school with that funny accent." Samantha gave him a look that said "snap your trap or I'll do it for ya." And immediately James obeyed.

"Well, we have to go get cleaned up, we'll see you later!" Albus said as they continued their journey to the common room.

The rest of their lessons went smoothly compared to Care of Magical Creatures. They had lunch, (which was very tasty) then more classes, then it was time for dinner.

"I'm not eating that." Samantha said as she eyed her food.

"And why not?" James asked. Samantha gave him a look that said "Duh!"

"Dude, it's Yorkshire pudding!"

"And your point is...?"

"DON'T YOU KNOW WHAT A YORKIE IS?!?" Samantha yelled. That drew the attention of everyone in the room, including the teachers. James smiled sheepishly then glared at Samantha.

"Sush!" He hissed and she returned the glare. "Just try it, it's not a dog, all right?" Samantha sighed and dropped her shoulders dramatically.

"Fine." She said. She scooped up a bite of food onto her fork and stuffed it in her mouth. Albus watched curiously as her cheeks were pudged out and she decided whether or not she licked it. Suddenly, she spit out the food back onto her plate and crinkled up her nose.

"You didn't like it?" Holly asked, more like a statement than a question.

"Nope. Are there any cheese balls around this joint?" Samantha replied. The group of first years around them looked at her like she was insane.

"That would be Samantha-eise for 'Do you have any cheese balls?'" James said. The group said "Oh!" at the exact same time.

"Sorry, no." Peter said seriously. Samantha looked at her plate sadly for a moment then glanced warily around the room. James and the others watched her suspiciously as she pulled out her wand and waved it over her plate. She whispered something Albus couldn't hear and waved her wand. Suddenly, a bag of cheese balls flew through the door and landed on her plate. Samantha glanced over at the teacher's table to see that the only one who had noticed was Percy. He was glaring at her and shaking his head. She chuckled then turned back to the bag of cheese balls and began to eat them.

"Yum..." She said happily. James rolled his eyes but reached over and grabbed a ball of cheese from the bag.

"Hm, not bad..." James mused. Just then, Holly reached for one, then Derek, the Albus, then Peter, and Andrea followed last. As they all munched on the cheese balls and other assorted things at the table, a large boy came up behind James and Samantha.

"So, you two going to be trying out for Quidditch this year?" He asked, putting a very large hand on either of their shoulders. He was tall, and wide, about the shape of a brick. He had short brown hair, and he was rather handsome.

"You know it, Wood," James replied while Samantha nodded.

"Great! I can't wait! How about any of you?" He asked the first years around Samantha and James. They all stared at him with their mouths open. Holly had just put a cheese ball in her mouth, so she looked especially funny.

"'Wood'? The son of THE Wood?!?" Albus finally spoke. Wood nodded.


"What's your first name?" Holly inquired. Wood blushed a little bit but it quickly fled from his cheeks.

"I prefer 'Wood'" He said quickly. Holly nodded then continued chewing.

"I might try out..." Albus said quietly.

"GREAT!" Wood boomed. Everyone jumped. He looked over Peter and smiled. "What about you?" He asked him.

"Oh, no, not me." Peter said, shaking his head. "I'm deathly afraid of heights..."

"Well, you can be moral support then!" Wood said with a smile. Peter went pale at this statement. Wood thumped Samantha and James on their backs then turned and walked back to his own seat. "See you all at tryouts!" He called as he sat down.

"This outta be fun," James mused to himself.

"So, you've ridden a broom before, Albus?" Samantha asked him.

"Oh, yeah, at home I rode on the older brooms alot with James and dad. I never went very high up though." He replied through a mouthful of food.

"Cool, good luck at tryouts then." Samantha said, then she and James got up and walked out of the room.

"Well, that was odd..." Derek said quietly. Holly nodded. Andrea stood up and stretched.

"Well," she began softly, "I'm going up to work on my homework, see you all when you get up there." She walked off and Albus saw a Remus crawling onto her shoulder as she went. Albus and the others finished up as well then walked up to their common room to work on their own homework.

Chapter 3! (Of HP!)

"That was the hardest thing to understand in all of the world." Albus said with wide eyes. He and his little group were walking out of the Potions lab, Albus in the lead.

"I rather enjoyed it," Andrea said with a smile.

"That's because your partner had an IQ higher than a loaf of bread." Peter said indignantly.

"I suppose my partner was fine..." Derek said softly. Holly just "humphed" at his side.

"She hates me." Holly said angrily.

"What?" Derek said, not believing his ears.

"She sat down, looked at me, then said 'I hate you'" Holly explained quickly. "She didn't even give me time to speak!" Holly was red at this point, and Derek began searching in his bag for something. He pulled out a small, pink bunny and handed it to Holly. Holly looked at it with softer eyes for a moment then took it from him and stuck it in the inside pocket of her robe. Peter and Albus each gave Derek an odd look and he just shrugged.

The group of them then went outside for their Care of Magical Creatures class. They walked down the grassy slope to Hagrid's hut, looking at everything they could possibly take in at once. Albus enjoyed the fresh smell of the grass and clean pureness of it all...until they got closer to the hut. Then the smell became something of a much more terrible sort. Albus crinkled up his nose and saw the others do the same.

"Well, come on, first years!" Hagrid yelled, waving all of them over. All of the first years reluctantly drew nearer.

When Albus was close enough, he saw that there was a small box in front of Hagrid, and that was what the horrible smell was emanating from. Hagrid was beaming from ear to ear, while everyone else was covering their noses with the collar of their shirts. "I'm frightened..." Holly whispered to her brother. Albus could see him nod out of the corner of his eye.

"Today I've got a real treat fer ya," Hagrid began, beaming. He pulled the lid off of the box and everyone gave their own interpretation of the word "Ew" Albus did what the rest of the group did: he took a large step back. "Blast Ended Skrewts!" Hargrid proclaimed it like they were his babies. Albus saw a hand shoot out of the crowd. It belonged to Andrea.

"Um, not to be rude or anything," she began shyly, "but wasn't there a dreadful disaster with Skrewts awhile ago?" Andrea finished and images of burnt kids began reeling in Albus's brain. He felt his eyes get wider and decided that he didn't really want to stop it. Hagrid seemed to mull the question over for a bit then answered.

"Well, we do Skrewts with all the classes. So, you'll have to do 'em too." Hagrid finished and began looking through the crowd for a student. Albus wanted more than anything at that moment to disappear into the ground. Hagrid spotted someone.

"You, come on over here." Hagrid motioned a small little boy over to the box. That boy was Peter. Peter slowly stepped closer to the box and Hagrid, his body rigid. Albus couldn't see his face, but he imagined a look of pure agony plastered on it.

"Don't be shy, come on, come on," Hagrid said loudly. Everyone watched breathlessly as Peter came right up to the box. Hagrid nodded to him and he bent over. Peter looked into the box and Albus thought he saw his face turn a shade nearer to green. Hagrid began to go over some rules about handling Skrewts, then he told them how to pick them up and hold them and such, then he told Peter to pick one up. Peter gawked at him like the rest of the children and just stood there. Albus thought for sure that Peter was going to throw up. But, suddenly, a voice called out.

"YOU CAN DO IT, PETER!!!" Everyone turned and looked behind them. Albus tried to see who was yelling, because it obviously wasn't someone in their group. Suddenly, through heads, he could see a faint face. He couldn't make out who it was, just the voice yelling "GO ON!! BEAT THAT SKREWT! SHOW IT WHO'S BOSS!!!" and cheering wildly. The other first years turned back around and also began to cheer Peter on, until, slowly, slowly, he reached in, snatched a Skrewt, and cradled it in his arms. The first years went positively bonkers. Albus thought he had lost hearing because Holly was cheering so loudly for him.

"Good job," Hagrid patted Peter on the back then told everyone else to either get their own Skrewt or share one with a friend. Today, they were walking them.

Chapter 2, continued...maybe my chapters will be as long as JK's...

The owls swooped and soared over the tables, first years craning their necks to watch. A few different owls landed on the table that Albus, James, Derek, Holly, Andrea and Samantha were all seated at. Albus looked at the owl in front of him and smiled. It was teeny. It was a small, white owl with two letters tied to it's legs. Albus untied them then handed one to James. The other he read to himself.

Dear Albus,

I hope everything is going well. Your mum and I are so happy you got put into Griffindor! This owl is yours, by the way. (In name departments, I'm especially fond of the name "Hedwig" for an owl.) Your mum and I send our love. And so does Lilly. (She also sends cries of "I WANT TO GO TOO!")

With lots of love, Dad.

Albus smiled and looked at the owl. He petted it nicely on the head and it hopped right onto his shoulder. He handed it a piece of bacon then it flew off out the window. Albus glanced around the table as Holly, Derek, Andrea, and James finished reading their letters. Albus glanced over at Samantha.

"What? No mail for you?" He asked, slightly surprised. Samantha got a huge smile on her face.

"Oh, don't worry, it's coming." She said as she glanced over Peter's head. Suddenly, the biggest bird that Albus had ever seen flew in and landed on the table, whapping Peter on the back of the head on re-entry.

"Ouch!" Peter said, rubbing the back of his head. The others just stared at the bird before asking what it was.

"An eagle." Came Samantha's satisfied reply. James shrugged.

"Better than last year..." He said quietly.

"What was last year?" Derek asked him. James looked at him for a moment then shook his head.

"You DON'T want to know..." He answered warningly. Samantha rolled her eyes and sighed. She took a letter from the eagle (the letter was actually in an envelope, instead of a scroll) Samantha opened the envelope and pulled out the letter. As she read it to herself, Albus glanced over at Peter.

"No mail today?" He asked him. Peter shook his head and shrugged simultaneously.

"I don't expect much mail..." Peter replied softly. Albus decided to not push the subject and looked down at his food.

The Griffindor first year's first class for that day was Potions, so all of the first years headed that way. Albus, Andrea, Derek, Holly and Peter all stood outside the door in a small group. Albus didn't know how they all came to be such good friends so quickly, but they had, and he liked it.

The door to the Potions room suddenly opened and all of the gathered first years walked inside. They all shose seats with their desired partners then glanced around the room. Albus looked around and saw the room had no windows and it was dark. He also noted that it was exceptionally chilly and very damp. He hated everything about it. He was sitting with Andrea, Derek and Holly were with each other, and Peter was sitting in between the two groups. Albus looked up to the front of the room and was startled to see that the teacher was standing at the front of the room. Albus was sure he wasn't there before.

"Hello, first years," the man at the front of the room began. He smiled at the class, sweeping his dark eyes over them. He was a tall man, lanky, and looked very happy for a Potions teacher. "I'm Professor McGlinnin, potions master, and head of Slytherin house." He finished. Albus looked at him with curiosity and decided he would rather have Professor Longbottom for head of house than him.

Professor McGlinnin began telling them about things they would be needing through the year, and what they would be learning. He also said that he was going to pair them up himself.

"As you can see, there are Griffindors in this room and Slytherins. I will be partnering each Slytherin with a Griffindor and that will be your partner for the year. Griffindors, when I call your name, stand up and your Slytherin partner will come to you." Professor McGlinnin finally finished and Albus gulped. He was sure there were a bunch of mean Slytherins and he was going to get the meanest of them all. Professor McGlinnin began calling on Griffindors, and they would stand. then he would call a Slytherin, and they would go and sit with the Griffindor. It was a bit confusing, but it worked. Andrea ended up being paired with Scorpio, Derek with a boy that Albus didn't recognize, Holly with a rather pretty girl, Peter with a VERY big boy, and Albus with a small, fair skinned boy and a wide smile.

"You're Albus Potter, right?" He said as he sat down next to him. Albus nodded, thinking it was a rather stupid question since he had stood up when his name was called. "And your dad is Harry Potter, right?" He continued. Albus nodded slowly and the boy's smile grew wider, if that was at all possible. "Cool. I'm Jacob Calgary." He held out his hand for Albus to shake. Albus shook it and smiled. Then, the potions lesson began.

Once in a lifetime

You don't have to be fast, or a great swimmer, or a super-strong person. You don't have to go to the Olympics for a once in a lifetime opportunity. Every story you write, every picture you draw, every smile you make, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Every day is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so treat it that way.

This deep thought is brought to you be yours truly.

"The Meeting at the Cafe"

Vanessa's alarm on her watch went off, and she began to wake up. She slowly lifted her head off of the laptop's keyboard and looked around the room sleepily. She wiped the bit of drool on the side of her mouth off of her face with her sleeve then looked at the computer's screen.

"Coolio, got all the work done, and in my sleep to!" Vanessa chuckled to herself. She glanced down at her watch then back at the computer. Suddenly, she did a double take and looked down at her watch again.

"OH NO!" She yelled as she jumped out of her chair. she began rushing around her small apartment like a mad woman, brushing her hair, stuffing stuff into her backpack and brushing her teeth for about thirty seconds. She looked at herself in the mirror in the bathroom and sighed. She pulled off her sweatshirt then immediately threw a long-sleeved, blue-jean jacket on.

"You're going out in public, you need to look decent!" She muttered to herself. She grabbed her tennis shoes and shoved them into her backpack and quickly threw on a helmet and some elbow and knee pads. She put on a pair of roller skates, put on a tan trench coat, slung her backpack over her shoulder and grabbed an umbrella then was out the door.

She skated down the hall with all of her things, looking slightly ridiculous. She came to the stairs and put all of her strength into her legs as she jumped onto the railing, avoiding the startled people.

"Vanessa!" The apartment manager yelled, "how many times have I told you not to skate down the stair rail?"

"Sorry, Mr. Gritchin!" Vanessa called as she landed on the ground. Everything that wasn't a room in the apartments was outside, including the hallways and stairs, so when Vanessa landed, she was already outside. She put up her umbrella then skated down the sidewalk to her destination.

When Vanessa reached the cafe, she was relieved to see that none of her friends were there yet. She went inside, still wearing her roller skates, and sat down at a small circular table. She pulled off her skates and replaced them with her tennis shoes. She then took off her pads and helmet and pulled out her laptop. She opened it up and began playing around on it when the door to the cafe opened.

A teenage girl, wearing a long black coat, walked in, carrying an umbrella. She had dark brown hair, almost black, pulled back into a pony tail. She glanced over at Vanessa and smiled, then quickly walked over to the table.

"Hey, Rachel," Vanessa said with a smile. Rachel sat down across from her at the small table and smiled wide.

Hey, V! Have ya seen anything yet?" Rachel finished in a whisper.

"Nope, you're the first person to walk through the door since I got here."

"When did you get here?" Rachel inquired. Vanessa hesitated.

"About three minutes ago..." She replied slowly. Rachel's shoulders fell a bit.

"V, you were supposed to be here early!" She exclaimed.

"I was earlier than you." Vanessa pointed out. Rachel nodded and shrugged her shoulders at the same time. "Besides, I was up all night with this stupid project..." Vanessa's voice drifted off as she looked at the computer screen.

"I would've helped, but you know how good I am at that stuff...not at all..." Rachel said sadly.

"Yeah, well, I got it all done, so no biggie." Vanessa reassured her friend. The door opened again and another girl walked in. She had curly brown hair that went past her shoulders and a navy blue raincoat on. She glanced over at the two girls and waved then walked over.

"Hey, guys!" She said happily.

"Hey, Alex," Rachel said, then gave her friend a small hug.

"Anything?" Alex asked hopefully.

"Just got the project done, that's all." Vanessa replied with a sigh.

"Oh..." Alex said, disappointed.

"Hey, Rachel, do you think you could get me a hot chocolate, please?" Vanessa asked.

"Sure," Rachel got up and walked over to the counter and began ordering. As soon as she was at the counter, the door opened yet again and two teenage boys walked in.

"Dude, I don't see how you CAN'T like it!" One said to the other rather loudly. The other boy looked over at Vanessa and Alex and nodded.

"Yo, Chandler," Rachel called to the boy who was talking. He looked over and smiled.

"Yeah?" He asked as he began walking towards her.

"Help me out here, will ya?" Rachel asked, trying to balance five cups.

"Oh, sure." Chandler took two of the cups from Rachel and helped her carry them over to the table.

"Hey, guys!" Chandler said as he set the cups down.

"Wassup, C.D.?" Vanessa asked. Chandler shrugged then glared at the other boy.

"I say noszing, I hear noszing, I know noszing..." He said with a funny accent. Vanessa chuckled while the others just looked at him like he was crazy.

"Hey, Jasper," Alex said with a smile. Jasper nodded in greeting then glanced around the cafe.

"Vanessa, this is for you," Rachel pushed one of the cups towards Vanessa, "Alex," she repeated the process with Alex, then Chandler, and finally Jasper.

"Thanks, Rae." Vanessa said, taking a sip of her hot chocolate. Chandler and Alex said thank you as well and Jasper nodded.

"You're welcome, guys." She said then nodded at Jasper.

"So, what's going on?" Chandler asked.

"I got the project done, but nothing other than that." Vanessa replied quietly.

"When did the email say to be here?" Alex asked, getting slightly impatient. Vanessa sighed then pulled up her email. The others all leaned closer as she pulled up one labeled "Agent" and began reading it in a whisper.

Agents L, C, D, R, and M,
On the fifth of April, meet at the Charlotta Cafe at 12:00 p.m. Another agent will meet you there between 12 and 1 to give you an important message. Good luck, agents.

"So, that's it..." Alex began. "We just, wait?"

"Yeah," Vanessa nodded her head and sat back. "We should spread out, but first..." Vanessa pulled up her backpack from the floor and set it on the table.

"Won't people get suspicious if you give us spy stuff?" Rachel asked, whispering.

"No, because it doesn't look like spy stuff." Vanessa replied, pulling out five pairs of sunglasses. She handed one pair to everyone then put one on herself.

"Sunglasses?" Chandler asked in disbelief.

"Just put them on." Vanessa commanded quietly. Chandler shrugged and put his on obediently.

"Cool!" He said, looking through them.

"Here," Vanessa then handed everyone an earpiece and cellphone.

"Free cellphone, sweet! How many minutes do we have?" Alex asked with a silly smile.

"Ha ha." Vanessa laughed dryly. "Those are actually mini-computers. You can find out a lot with those, and they act as a video screen to communicate with other members of the group." She explained quickly. The others put their earpieces in their ears and stuck their new cellphones in their pockets.

"All right, let's do this thing!" Chandler said as he and Jasper moved to a booth across the room. Rachel and Alex moved to separate tables, and Vanessa stayed put.

"Mii Maker, can you read me?" Vanessa heard Rachel's voice coming through her earpiece.

"Loud and clear," She replied.

"Cool! Can everyone hear us?" Rachel asked.

"Only if you want them to." Vanessa pushed a button on her earpiece and began talking into it again. "Guys, to let everyone into the conversation on your earpiece, push the red button, otherwise you'll just talk to me." She explained. Murmured "Okay"'s came from her earpiece and she switched it back to her and Rachel.

Alex picked up a magazine and began reading it absentmindedly, while Rachel picked up a newspaper.

"Why can't I read Twilight, again?" She asked.

"Because you wouldn't stay focused on anything else!" Vanessa hissed. There was a sigh on the other end and Vanessa rolled her eyes. She glanced over at Chandler and Jasper, who were in a heated discussion about...something she didn't care about. Vanessa looked back at her computer when the sound of the little bell above the door ringing suddenly caught her attention.

A man with a long black trench coat walked in. He had short, spiked black hair that was red on the ends. He walked up to the counter and ordered something in a cup then walked to an empty table and sat down.

"Whoa, what's up with that dude? Is is just me, or are you getting a bad vibe about him?" Rachel asked over the earpiece.

"I don't know, he does look awfully suspicious..." Vanessa replied as she watched him pick up and old newspaper and begin reading it. "Hm, old newspaper..." Vanessa mussed.

"Whoa! Look who just walked in!" Rachel exclaimed. Vanessa slightly turned around to see yet another man walk in. He had on a tan trench coat and a detective's hat on his head and a brown mustache on his face.

"Rae! That's Detective Austin!" Vanessa exclaimed quietly.

"Seriously?!?" Rachel asked in disbelief. Detective Austin glanced around the room and met Vanessa's eyes. He nodded slightly then walked over to Alex. He sat down at the table she was at and discretely slipped her a note. Alex took it then walked over to Vanessa.

"Fall in, guys." Vanessa whispered. The rest of the group walked over to her as Alex handed her the note.

"What does it say?" Chandler asked. Vanessa read it quietly to the others.

Congrats on your first official mission. Travel to London to Buckingham Palace, and you will receive further instructions. Good luck, and don't let anyone stop you.

"Whoa, London?" Alex asked. "That's kinda far away..." The others gave her a look like "Duh!" When she finished.

"I'll work on tickets," Vanessa began typing on the computer, looking through different travel sites.

"How long is it gonna take?" Chandler asked.

"Not long at all..." Vanessa said absentmindedly.

"Can you give us a certain time? Like, a couple minutes, an hour-"

"Done." Vanessa cut Chandler off and he stared at her.

"How'd you do that so fast?" He asked quietly.

"Simple: Computer Wiz." She replied.

"Okay, we've got two hours until the flight starts. I suggest we go home and pack." Vanessa continued.

"Oka-" Rachel stopped when she saw the guy with red spikes practically jump out of his chair and run out the door. She looked at Alex who nodded. "Do you mind?" Rachel asked Vanessa.

"Go ahead." She replied.

"I'll go get a taxi!" Chandler exclaimed as the two girls dashed out the door. Vanessa chuckled then looked at Jasper.

"So, whaddaya think?" She asked. He shrugged.

"Fun." He replied simply. Vanessa laughed then packed up her computer, then she and Jasper walked outside.

Chandler was already in the taxi when they got outside, and he was motioning for them to jump in. Vanessa slid in next to Chandler, and Jasper got in after her. Vanessa immediately flipped open her computer and began pushing random buttons. Suddenly, an image of the guy with red spikes crawling up a fire escape. The image turned into a choppy video as the person with the camera climbed up after him.

"Rae, what's going on?" Vanessa asked through her earpiece.

"He's running!" Rachel replied.

"No he's not, he's climbing up a fire escape." Vanessa corrected.

"Right-wait, how'd you know?" Rachel asked as she continued climbing.

"I can see him right now." The video image looked around frantically.

"Where are you?" Rachel asked.

"In a taxi no where near you."

"Then how can you see him?"

"Your sunglasses." Vanessa replied simply.

"Ooooh!" Rachel continued climbing and made it to the roof of the building. She ran towards the guy, who promptly jumped off of the building. Rachel ran to the edge as he flew up with a jet-pack on his back.

"Whoa," Rachel said in disbelief.

"Yeah," Vanessa agreed. The guy with red spikes flew away, and Rachel could do nothing but watch.

"Well, that was interesting." Chandler said. He had been watching over Vanessa's shoulder, as had Jasper.

"Whose house are we going to first?" Jasper asked.

"Uh, mine," Vanessa replied slowly. Jasper gave the taxi driver the address and they began moving. Vanessa saved a picture of the jet-pack, which was very interesting in design. She decided that she needed to study it more, and find out more on the guy with red spikes...

More pics!!!

"Me and the 'Munks" We're just lookin' at the can almost hear Theo now...

I think that one's self-explanitory...heh heh heh...

Bowling: If you can't read the writing, Alvin is saying "He may be smart, but he sure can't bowl!"

That's my bro as a chipmunk. :D (My younger but older bro :P)

LOOK!! IT'S MII!!! AND MY HAIR LOOKS SO AWESOME! Is it just me, or am I the cutest? :P

Alvin, tricky as always! Looks like he's cooking up a scheme, doesn't it?

That would be my cousin, Rachel. Wearing her fave color, too.

This is just a starry night picture of a dad with his daughter. *NOTE! It's not me and my dad, even though the dad does resemble mine...and I love my dad dearly, but that little girl isn't' mii. :(

Rae said that she couldn't read this, which means that it probably won't be easy to read for anyone, so here's what happens.
Frame 1: Theodore: Where are we? Simon: I don't know, but whatever you do, don't panic!
Frame 2: Alvin: I know where we are!
Frame 3: Alvin: Look, see?
Frame 4 is just writing in the book
Frame 5: Simon: Alvin, that is a fictitious place. There are no magical creatures, no ninjas- Theodore: Uh, guys...
Frame 7: Simon: Who are you? ninja dude: I was about to ask you the same thing...
My bro wanted the first and second frames to go like this: Frame 1: Theodore: Where are we? Alvin: Well, I think Dave remodeled our bedroom! I like it, big and open- Frame 2: Theodore: Uh, but where did the T.V. go? Simon: Give me a break. We're in a building, Theodore. :P That was his idea. :P
Yeah, this is the SECOND pic of mii...suprisingly the same as the first...but edited differently.

I put up two of each pic because I edited them differently and I didn't know which one was better, and I also apologize for the poor quality on the computer. They are LOADS better in real life. As I have said before and will say again, I have to take pictures of the pictures with my camera, and they don't turn out so well. *glares at camera* I love it, yet I hate it...I probably love it more though...Well, Enjoy! :D

Dude, church ROCKS! (well, not litterally...)

Okay, in church, we've been doing a study of Joshua, and it's been really cool. Today, some of the people actually got to move around. :D I'll tell it in "story version" because I find it easier to describe things that way.

The sanctuary was a large, rectangular room with pews down the two long sides. The pulpit was at the front of the room, so it could be seen by everyone. The pews were full, but not to the point of breaking. The pastor was behind the pulpit, speaking to the congregation.

"Today, we're going to do things a bit differently." He said with a smile. He took his Bible and walked out from behind the pulpit. He had a small stack of papers in his hands as well as the Bible. He looked around and began picking people from the congregation, some children and some grown adults. He began putting them in different areas according to the piece of paper he had given them.

"Gilgal," he began, pointing to a boy with that written on his piece of paper, "you go into the back, okay? I need the Israelite army" he motioned to three people with numbers on their papers "to go back to Gilgal, where the army is stationed. And Joshua," he pointed to a tall man with a paper that said "Joshua" on it, "you can head back there too." All of the designated people went back to where they were supposed to go, some with more flare than others. Laughter was heard as "Joshua" began walking like an army man, looking rather ridiculous doing it.

"All right, Bethel, you go up to the front with your army," he pointed to two men holding papers with "Bethel" and "Bethel's army" written on them and the two men walked up to the pulpit. "And Ai and Ai's army, you can come over here." He pointed to a pew near the front of the church and two men went and stood there. He had another person hold two pieces of paper with a picture of the sun on one, and the moon on the other, to remind us all what time it was in the story.

The story began, of a great fight with the Israelites against Ai. Joshua sent a legion of men from Gilgal to hide in the rocky mountains behind the city of Ai late at night. (At that time in the story, a young boy designated as the correct amount of the army hid behind a pew behind the city of Ai and it's army) Next, Joshua sent more of his army to ambush Ai. Joshua then followed with the main army, situated on the mountain opposite of Ai, and they prepared for battle.

The next day, all of the army of Ai went to confront the main army of Israel. (At this time, all of the designated people were in their designated spots.) Joshua and the main army of Israel faked defeat and began to retreat, then God told Joshua to stretch out his spear towards the city of Ai. (At this point, Ai's army and the main army of Israel and Joshua are in the isle between the two rows of pews and "Joshua" pretended to hold out a spear in the direction of "Ai") At that time, the rest of the army that was in hiding attacked the city and set in on fire, to show the army of Ai that they had nowhere to run. Joshua and the main army of Israel attacked and defeated the army of Ai, and the army of Bethel, which had come to help Ai's army. They then returned to the city of Ai and set it on fire once again, and it fell to the hands of the Israelites.

Okay, didn't that sound like fun to watch? (Not the real thing, the thing we did in church.) It was really cool, and it helped you visualize the story better. God had told Joshua some of the stuff to do, but other parts were from Joshua's knowledge of battle and from things God told them in the book of Deuteronomy. There were three points to the message which I will tell ya in a different post, once we're done with the book of Joshua. If you haven't read that book, and like adventure, then I would say READ IT!!! I mean, the Bible has everything! Adventure, prophecy, romance, all of it. (Ruth, I will tell you right now, [even though I haven't read the other book I'm about to mention] kicks Twilight's toosh.) It's the greatest book ever written, and can really change your life, for the better. So read it, and you'll won't regret it, promise.

"The First Monday"

God made the heavens, the earth and the sea,
He made the creatures of the sky, land and sea.
He then made a man,
From the dust of the earth,
That's the only time man was given that sort of birth.

God watched as the man took care of the garden,
But soon saw that the man needed another human.
So when the man fell asleep,
God took from him a rib,
And made a person only slightly different from him.

Adam called her "woman",
And named her "Eve",
And the couple lived together happily.
Until one day a serpent,
(Who was the devil disguised)
Came before Eve's very eyes.

He said, in his manipulative tone,
"Woman, I see that you have a nice home.
And every plant here,
You're allowed to eat?"
The woman replied,
"What you have said is true,
Except for in the middle, none of that fruit."

That was exactly,
What the serpent wanted to hear,
So he brought himself closer to Eve's ear.
"Now, dear woman," he said with a smile,
If you eat of that fruit, it will make it worthwhile!
So take it, and eat it! Enjoy for awhile!"
And to the serpent's delight,
Eve didn't do what was right,
And ate from the tree in the middle.

But then, what was worse,
She gave some to her husband of unusual birth.
The two saw their sin,
And hid within,
The garden where they hoped God couldn't find them.
But God saw their way,
And had to curse them that day,
Although it saddened him.

So then the both had to work,
To make food come from the earth,
And woman was given pain in childbirth.
But what day was it when,
Sin first entered the land?
Was it Wednesday, or Thursday, or Friday?
May be it was the day,
(The dreadfullest day)
The day we now know as Monday.

Okay, I don't know if that's true or not, but I thought it would be kinda funny if it was, since everyone pretty much hates Monday. After all, during the school year, it's the first day of the week that you go back to school. For us, it's the day mom goes back to work after Sunday off. Nobody really likes Mondays, so I thought that it would be interesting if that was the day that sin first entered the earth.

Enjoy! :D

Ugh. Blech. :(. Sick face here.

Okay, so we (we meaing my family and I) went to the doctor's on Wednesday. I have been transfered from the pediatric doc, to the big doc. We went in and had the most thorough doctor's visit EVER which was acctually good. Becuase they didn't just say "Oh, you have a tummy ache? Well, here, take this new pill and let's see what it does. Bye bye!" He acctually asked about, like, everything. And it was pretty cool. We have more tests scheduled, but until then, we don't know what's wrong with mii. And, to boot, we're pretty sure that I'm having reacurring ovarian cysts. So I get pills for that too. (They're orange, in case you cared) And, as an even better bonus, last night I woke up at about 4:00 a.m. (so it was really early this morning) and went into the bathroom. I woke up becuase I had a tummy ache...then I threw-up. First I threw-up in the toilet, but the second time was on the floor. Oops. I went back to bed for...I don't know for how long, but I didn't really fall asleep, then I got back up, went back into the bathroom, and puked again. Basically, it was just phlem. (Or however you spell it) I went back to bed...again, but didn't sleep. Instead, I got up once more guessed it, I threw-up again. That was the last time, but I'm not feeling very good today. I had a piece of toast for breakfast, and I feel like I have a cold. COULDN'T I JUST HAVE ONE THING WRONG WITH ME?!? Sorry, just a question I've been asking. Oh well, pain builds character. :P Well, I'm sure this will come in handy one day. Until then, keep praying for me, please. I keep on praying for you.

And this is my cousin Hannah.
These are pics of my cousin, Rachel. If it looks like you, Rae, you can pretend it's you if you want. :P

Two sketches of mii, both edited but in different ways.

Who doesn't love Alvin?

I'll have colored versions up later, but I wanted to post the sketches. Rae, if you could try paintshop on 'em, I'd really appreciate it. :) Enjoy! :D
