Got Sod?

Some friends of my family pulled up some sod on a job site. So they asked us if we wanted it. So we said yes, now were laying down today. Have you ever laid sod before? It's like laying carpet outside and moving the earth where you want it. It's strange and cool at the same time.

Questioning the Insane

Okay, so on many people's blogs, they are listing questions. Well, I'm going to try my hand at making a list.

  1. Why are softballs hard?
  2. Why do people smoke, could they as easily stick a match in their mouth?
  3. How can people just throw their trash out the window? Do they think it will just disappear?
  4. How did "A" become "A" as well as other letters?
  5. How did they figure out the 101010 could make a computer?
  6. Is this my life story or your's?
  7. Why is American Football called "football" and why is "football" called soccer?
  8. Why do boys think bodily sounds and body feature homonyms are funny?
Small, I know but I couldn't think of anymore right now.

Three hours of my life I'll never get back


I took a placement test this morning and didn't finish in time. Also frustrating. The first part of the test was math. First of all, I don't like math. Second it was a choice between three different types of Algebra. I choose Pre-Algebra. Rating math skill level between 1-10 I'm a 2. It took me most of the time to get through the math part. (I had three hours of time) I got through the reading part more fast. Then I was just starting the Writing part (the last one) when I had to stop. Meanwhile I was the last person in the room taking the test. Frustrating and spirit-lowering. I don't like tests, and neither does my mom.

Photo Shoot

Today it rained and I had the urge to photograph it. Here's a picture of the rain falling into a puddle and making ripples. I really like it.
I took a few others of the rain, but they didn't turn out as good. Then I found out how to make my moms digital camera shoot in B&W, Sepia, and this blue tint. I took a picture of the reflection of a tree in the window on my door. I thought it looked cool. I also took a picture of one of our hanging petunia flowers. Another cool picture, I like black and white. I took pictures of my brothers, but for privacy I will not post those. Even though some of them are really cute. :) But I will show you my ladder picture. All these photos were shot with a Nikon CoolPix camera. Hope you enjoyed them.
