A Story in Pictures and Gifs

This week I've been gardening and I have been having so much fun! I've been pretty much like this:

While I've been gardening I've also seen a bunch of squirrels. One in particular looked all cute and fluffy and he let me feed him a grape.
When I told my brother about it, he asked me if I wanted him to shoot the squirrel. I told him "no" since that cute little squirrel wasn't hurting anybody.

During this time my pineapple plant that I've had a few years actually flowered! I was so excited!

Here's a close up of what it looks like, though this specific picture isn't mine. 

I've waited years for it to do something and then it just decided to flower! So today I went to church and then saw the new Cinderella movie with some friends afterwards. 

Meanwhile at home.....

And I came back to this.



My beautiful plant was destroyed!!! 

And so I've been in the pit of despair.... But the movie was really good :) 
*sigh* But I'll be okay... I'll just go wait another five years for another pineapple plant to bloom...

And the next squirrel I see? 

Just kidding, I wouldn't want to shoot the wrong squirrel.

Senior Rejects

    So today I had to write a short biography in third person for a program that will be at my graduation. I thought the first biography I wrote sounded great (though the first line may not have been entirely true), but my mom said she didn't think it would be accepted. However she and my sister thought it was pretty funny and encouraged me to post it here, so here it is!

    After being abducted by aliens at the age of five, Emily Wand has not been allowed to go places by herself; because of this, she mostly stays at home playing weird instruments in her room and creating suspicious creams and ointments out of weeds from the back yard. On the unlikely occasion she does leave the house, she mainly takes a sonic screwdriver to the theater to watch a new Disney or Marvel movie, but sometimes she just helps her mom go grocery shopping.  

    I ended up writing a more boring, though I suppose more professional (and accurate) biography. Which took me a lot longer to write than the first one.

    I also had to send in 3-5 pictures for a slide show. Here are a few I considered but decided against in the end.
