So for my New Testament class our teacher is really cool. And he opened the class with a few questions.
1. Has anyone ever lived in a different country?
-Of course I raised my hand. I lived in New Zealand...for a few months... I know a lot of people don't think that counts but it totally does.
2. Can anyone do an impression of a famous person?
-No one volunteered.
teacher: "You guys are a bunch of mormons" (making fun of us for not sharing)
3. Can anyone here do a weird body trick?
a couple of people raised their hands. One guy just made a popping sound with his supposed "double jointed jaw" what does that even mean? All jaws have two joints. duh. the other person just put her hand behind her back and waved. I can totally almost do that.
Well at first I forgot my special talent. But then I remembered. But I hesitated. Then I thought of the aforementioned stargirl and what she would do in this situation. So of course I raised my hand.
"I can flap my left nostril"
A sound of surprise from the classroom
So I did what no one else can do and I breathed in really hard through my nose. As I do this, one nostril flaps open and shut open and shut. They had me turn do it again and face all directions so everyone could see it.
thank you stargirl for not only reminding me who I am but to not be afraid to BE who I am.

Well I read. I have averaged a book a day. Just like 200 page chapter books for elementary school kids.
- Tuck Everlasting
- The Black Cauldron
- Wait Till Helen Comes
K Stargirl is officially my favorite book other than harry potter books. It is amazing. This girl is absolutely everything I want to be - she only cares about others and she is crazy and totally herself no matter what.
Frindle and Skinnybones make me laugh out loud.
Wait Till Helen made me really scared. That author just sets this spooky mood that freaks you out. and it's a kids book!
All I'm sayin is that if you have nothing better to do and you are watching tv, which is so dumb, you should just read some of these books.
