Flykidz!!!! :)

Yeah, so that was last Saturday, but whatever. My constant memory of being there was jumping on the runway trampoline (as I call it) and saying, 'Oh crab,' the entire way. No shame.
I managed to do a handstand!! :D After about six tries (it might have been less) I finally managed to do it! Accomplishment!! :3
One if my other constant memories is not being able to do anything on the bar… even the guys could do stuff on the bar. On top of that, I got a wood burn.
Then there was pizza. :3 First, we heard announcements from Londi, then heard a bit of Vince's teenager story. Then there was pizza. Three slices… imma food junkie. :P
It was nice to talk to people. Now I just need to wait another few days and I can talk to people again.
The girl who loves her interesting life even if everyone else doesn't think it's interesting, OUT!

Laser Tag for Chinese New Year!

Yup. Dude, I am sooooo tired, but so happy!!
If it wasn't for a last minute(ish) decision from my parents, today would be pretty much normal.
I nearly got lost at Mega Mall (I was seriously scared I would get lost) but thanks to Ilona, everything went, more or less, smooth.
Our party included Ilona's brother, Piers, the Holtby brothers, our intern Vince, Saskia and a friend of hers (I'm sorry, I can't remember your name).
We got über lucky! Instead of 55RM for three games, it was 45RM for four games!! :D So, pretty much all I remember of my time in the game place was chaos, loud music and the occasional scream (made mostly by me).

Game one: Free for all. Laser tag name: Predator.
I spent most of my time running up and down the stairs (or ramp, whatever) and shooting anything that blinked. On no account was I gonna go downstairs, because that was Vince's terrain, and he is pretty mean with that gun. I got the heck scared outta me by Ilona about three times and crashed (literally) into Isaac twice. I won third place!! :D

Game two: Two teams. Laser tag name: Predator. Team: Green.
Some other kids (I didn't know) came into the game as well, so we were a bigger and crazier but nonetheless fun party. I went for a different tactic. Hiding in various nooks and shooting anything that blinked. Jack (was not on my team) was terrifying. He pulled out a black mask that had the words 'Evil' across the forehead in red letters. He is honestly the one I most remember shooting. I won third place again (in my team, which won second place).

Game three: Three teams (I think). Laser tag name: Enforcer. Team: Blue (I think).
I honestly can't remember much, only that more people had joined the party. I do remember that Vince was on my team (as he was for the second game, as well as the fourth) and he was acting like a drill sergeant or something. I won fourth place. And yes, Jack was still wearing his mask.

Game four: Four teams. Laser tag name: Hornet. Team: Green.
This was fun. There were a lot more kids (some of them little kids) and thus, more people to shoot (and to shoot me, but I look at it positively). I spent some of my time trying to shoot the snake. Who knew it could shoot through walls? That is so unfair. And some of my time halfway upstairs, where I shot anything that blinked, was going up the ramp, going down the ramp, fighting downstairs, fighting upstairs. Fuuunnn… ;3 I remember bumping into Jack a million times near the giant, very bright, tube thing that looked like a warp core from Star Trek (it's called a reactor or something) and shooting him. Still wearing his mask. I remember that thirty minutes into the game, someone was upstairs screaming "Rapid fire! Rapid fire!" It was Isaac. I won second place!!! :DDDDD

Now, I am exhausted…
I have no idea if my latest posts have been good reading, but I think it's good for me to write down about my times with my friends. :3
(Thank you for taking the picture, Saskia).

Kickoff!

I finally spent time with my friends! After a whole week! Such a long time… for me at least.
We spent most of our time in a circle, (I got there a bit late with the brownies, but I was still able to get some good food, including a delicious cupcake) listening to our leader talk.
The rest of our time was spent praying (which I was really thankful for, thanks) and thinking of crazy ideas to reach out to the less fortunate and tell people about Jesus. Honestly, I could only remember two of our (the twelves and thirteens… I'll get to the fourteens!! Just you wait!) good ideas. Crazy, (as is usual for Caden, the idea giver) but awesome.

One: Give cookies to our security guards (because who doesn't like cookies?)
Two: For some reason, I think I'll keep this one classified… MWAHAHAHA!

The rest of the ideas that didn't make it onto our ideas paper came from me, or involved us getting arrested… great Leeann. You're still awesome. :D
Totally total awesome way to kick off this month… (another awesome way would be to make ice cream cakes on the 2rd of Feb, but that's another story).
I left late, due to the fact that everyone wanted my brownies. :D Flattered! Hope you guys don't mind that they were gluten free. :P
I woke up really early for church today, and had a mild stomach ache for about an hour, which I think was the result of eating three cupcakes. (You're awesome, Leeann).
