Things coming up in the near future that I'm looking forward to:
Cherry picking at my friend's farm
Camping trip
Davis escapes
Hanging out with my family/Ninja
Sam coming home

Apparently, someone nominated me for the 2011 Community Service Award. I was rather bewildered by the congratulatory email. If you know me well, you would know that I usually fly under the radar. I don't do much of anything to bring attention to myself (e.g. I would never nominate myself for anything) and generally speaking, I'm fine with that. Granted, it doesn't help me very much in terms of garnering awards and such, which in turn doesn't help when I'm applying to things,'s fine. I'm not doing anything to get recognition out of it--I do it simply because I enjoy it, and it brightens up my life.

So what makes this mean so much more to me is the fact that someone actually took the time out of their day to fill out the form telling the school why I was awesome and why I deserved it. I don't even go to the school anymore (which makes me wonder whether I'd even be eligible to receive it), but the fact that I qualify for this year's means that multiple people decided somewhere between February to early March that I was super-awesome and deserved some recognition for it. :O I have no idea who these people could be, but whoever you are out there, you made my day! <3

Farrah! that's wonderful :) I'm glad you were nominated. It's good to be noticed, even if you do fly under the radar ;)

Thanks! :] :] I kinda wish I knew who they were so I could at least thank them, haha. :P

That is really helpful. It provided me a number of ideas and I'll be placing them on my web site eventually. I'm bookmarking your blog and I'll be back. Thanks again!
