New Year~New Goals

So countdown begins, I'm less than a week away from school. I guess that means no more long summer days of just being lazy. No more traveling or hanging out with friends whenever I want to. No more sleeping in :(, that's the worst one of all. But it's time to face the facts. I have to go back to school. I have to, there's no going around it. I need to get over it and get out of the house, that's pretty much all I've done for the past week is stay in the house, and do something. So I have decided to make myself a list of goals for this year. I'm going to tape it by my bed and every time I do one of them I'll cross it out.

List of Goals for the 2012~2013 School Year 
Try out for a sport
Make new friends
Be more athletic
Get in shape
Get more sleep
Be a better morning person
Write more
Pay attention in class
Gets honer roll all year (A's and B's)
Practice music more
All of these might not get done and I might add more, I guess it just depends on how the year goes. For my sport I'm thinking of trying out for crew(I just need to find someone to try out with me). Making new friends should be the easiest thing on the list. Being a better morning person should be the hardest.
I'm pretty much ready for the school year. I got a backpack off of Ebay and it looks like this.....

I still need to get my school supplies but we don't get the list until the first day. Freshmen orientation is on Thursday so I'm hoping I'll feel better after I go to that. They're giving us a tour of the school and our classes, yay! I also get to see my friends. :)
To end this post I'm going to share something I found on tumblr. I know, I know I have a Tumblr problem.
Back to school (Avengers addition)
Waking up:
Walking in school:
Seeing all your friends:
Seeing all your enemies:
Seeing whose in your homeroom:
Hearing about the new hot kid:
Sitting through all your classes:
Dealing with everyone for the rest of the year:

Yep that's pretty much how I feel. Only on Tumblr. Hope everyone has a great last week of summer and if your already in school just think of it this way. You get out of school sooner.

Banana Lime Smothies

I'm going to try something I've never done. A recipe post. If you like it, and want me to do more, please comment below.

Today I made a smoothie out of just random stuff around my house. I found some bananas and limeade in the fridge, I also added vanilla yogurt.  It was really simple to make and it turned out to be really good.
You take two banana's and put them in the blender. Then you add two cups of vanilla yogurt. Lastly you add a bit of lime. (I used limeade but you could add anything citrus in it's place and I'm sure it would taste fine.) Then you just blend it all together. That's pretty much it, like I said simple.
Here's how it turned out!
I hope everyone can try it! Have any of you made really good smothies before?
Until next time!

Caroline's Crazy Adventure Part 1

I just got home from what felt like the longest 4 days of my life. Let me start from the beginning.

Day 1: I wake up to my mom yelling at my sister to pack and my dad poking me on my shoulder asking where his brown shoes are. I get up, take a quick shower and begin to pack. I thought I had packed everything, I even double checked this time. I had a book, my kindle, my ipod, my phone, a journal, and even a back up book packed in my favorite little backpack, I was ready. It turns out I wasn't though. I listen to my ipod for a few hours and decided I should take out my contacts next time we stop so I could take a nap. Turns out I had not only forgotten my glasses, but also my ipod charger. At that point it was 11p.m and I was really tired and just wanted to get to the hotel. My sister had been in a bad mood all day and really bugging me. So I decided to ignore her when she started saying she had a nose bleed. I thought she was trying to be funny. So finally after a good 10 minutes I finally look over and there was blood every where. I mean everywhere. So my girl scout instincts kick in and I look around for napkins or tissues. When I finally found some and had her leaning her head back there was blood all over me and the back seat. I'm really bad about blood so I was freaking out and my sister was freaking out and of course at that moment my mom realizes she forgot all our dresses for the wedding and she starts freaking out. Yes, that was fun. That went on for about 20 minutes until my dad finally decided to stop at a hotel for the night.
Total hours of driving:9
Miles driven: about 500
Day 2: I don't sleep well in hotels so I got a grand total of 4 hours of sleep. My dad woke me up at 4 and wanted everyone up and out in 10 minutes. After stumbling around for 2 of those minutes trying to find my glasses, I realized oh wait that's right I forgot them. I quickly got ready and ran out the door at the last minute. The car was already running and everyone was inside. Not much happened until my mom decided that we should go shopping, right at that moment. After 3 hours of not finding anything we got back in the car and drove without stopping until we finally made it to our destination. After checking into the hotel everyone took showers and got ready for the rehearsal dinner. (It was for my uncle's wedding.) It turns out the rehearsal dinner was at a bar and I was one of the only kids there. There was only 8 kids and I was the oldest. So I ended up watching the kids while everyone got way to many drinks. That was fun. That all lasted for about 3 hours until my dad decided he had had enough of talking with people and we went back to our hotel room. I passed out as soon as lied down.
Total hours of driving: 10
Miles driven about: 700
Like I said I'm extremely tired so I'm heading to bed. I'll post the rest some time this week.

The sadest thing I have even seen on tumblr.

*This post may contain dramatic images that are not suitable for young children. Viewer digression is advised.*

This post is spread awareness of the saddest thing I have ever seen on Tumblr. No, not of a kid who has cancer or me losing all of my followers. It's a picture of this poor little dinosaur and his heart breaking story. (This story was written in the comments of this picture, by many of Tumblr's finest anonymous authors. Enjoy.)

No, it’s fine. I didn’t need my heart.

Are we crying about a doodle of dinosaurs?


Welcome to Tumblr

Oh god it hurts why would you ever

The meteor was coming.

Oh, God, it was coming and she didn’t know what to do. Her son, her beautiful little son, pressed
close to her side, craning his neck to look up at his Mother.

“Mummy, why is everyone moving? There’s plenty of food here.” He asked in his sweet, innocent voice.

“Because, my sweet, sometimes it is best that we move on. It is our way.” She replied, forcing the words past the lump in her throat.

“Oh,” Her son said, turning his gaze to the fiery rock in the sky that would spell their deaths out for them, “the old Triceratops told me it was cuzza that rock. He said the rock could hurt us real bad.” He continued, not understanding what he meant by those words in his innocence.

“Triceratops is being silly, he just wanted to tease you one more time before he left.” She lied, choking on her tears. Oh, God, he son, her lovely son, was going to die not understanding.


She turned her face to the meteor- it was close now. It wouldn’t be long. Swinging her head around, she dropped her face to her sons and nuzzled him one last time. “Let’s play a game, yes? And then we’ll go join the others.” She suggested.

“Okay! What game shall we play, Mummy?”

“Let’s play pretend. We will imagine the sort of place we would like to move to, and when we open our eyes, that’s where we shall be.”

“How do we play?”

One last look at the meteor- it was almost time.

“Close your eyes and imagine the place, and count to thirty out loud. Just like when we play Hide-and-Seek.” She curled herself around her son, both of them now laid on the beach.

“Ok, Mummy. 1, 2, 3, 4…”

She watched the meteor approach with sad eyes, and just before it hit land she turned her head, laying it and her neck over her son and bracing herself.

Her son had not yet said 30, but it was over.

-excuse me while I sob-

I'm back for good!

That's right people no more vacations for Caroline this summer, cause sadly school is less than a month away for me. :( Oh well I had a really good summer and still have tons of stuff planed for this month. I'm going to an amusement park with my friends, more pool, and to my Uncle's wedding. Should be a good month.

While I've been gone I've been trying to read as much as possible. I read
Darkness Falls (Immortal Beloved, #2) Darkness Falls By Cate Tiernan
Legend (Legend, #1)Legend By Marie Lu
I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Nine's Legacy (Lorien Legacies: The Lost Files, #3)I am Number Four: The Lost Files: Nine's Legacy By Pittacus Lore
Inheritance (Inheritance, #4)and I finally finished Inheritance! Inheritance By Christopher Paolini

I got lots of reading done! I also saw the new Batman movie. Review coming soon for that! I might also do a review for one of these books above. Which one do you think I should review? Comment below.

Now here are some pictures from Disney World. My friend and I took way to many pictures. She took over 2,000 and I took over 200. So I picked out 10 pictures out of my 200 to share.

 The first day we were there we went to Epcot. Here is the Epcot ball the most popular thing there. It's also a ride.
 Here are the mouse ears I got while I was in animal kingdom. I love them so much. :)
 Here are Tayler's mouse ears.
 Here is a wall of Perry the Platypus stuffed animals. Tayler got one that made noise, that got annoying really fast.
Phineas and Ferb made out of grass at Epcot.
I got to have breakfast with the Princesses and other characters. That was really fun. 

I got to have dinner at Cinderella's castle. It was really fun and cute cause all of the little girls that were there were beyond happy to see the princesses.

I got to have breakfast with Mickey and Friends too!
I saw a green army man outside of toy story mania at Hollywood Studios.
Me and Tayler rode this ride twice. Once during the day and once at night. Night was soo fun cause they brought you up to the very very top instead of the middle like they do during the day.
Lego dogs I saw outside a store. I thought they were like the coolest thing.

I found the awesomest panda umbrella outside of a store in Epcot. I was going to get it but it was $40. Which was most of the money I brought for souvenirs. :(
This is what you saw when you entered or left Hollywood Studios.

To end this post I'm going to share this week's song of the week.  Modest Mouse - Float On

Now I'm going to go be a lazy person and get into my sweats and sweatshirt and go catch up on the t.v I missed.
