   So, vacation was GREAT! We did go to Chattanooga, and we visited the aquarium, zoo, and Ruby Falls. It was so much fun! It was so different there, too; all of the shops and stores were right next to each other (and they were so small), and so many people walked everywhere. Plus, everything looked more... green. It was really, really cool. I think F, K, and J enjoyed the aquarium and zoo most. We've got a couple pictures somewhere that I might actually be able to upload for you, so I might edit this post later and add those. The house we rented for our vacation was pretty tiny, but we made it work - and there was a piano in the living room, so of course I was happy.
  I started this new drawing over spring break, and I think it looks pretty good so far. It's not done yet, but I'm almost finished with the actual outline. Once that's done, I'm gonna color it in and then maybe outline it with pen. The hardest part so far has been figuring out the angles and proportions for the arms and legs - the girl in my picture has both arms in the air and one leg off the ground. I think the hardest part after that will be trying to color in blonde hair! We'll see, I guess.
  Speaking of seeing and pictures, I have my final Memory Project! I think it looks pretty cool, if I do say so myself. I'm in school right now, and my phone hates any form of communication here, so I can't upload that picture either... but I'll do it this afternoon, as soon as I can.
   On Wednesday, I was inducted into the National Honor Society at my school! Technically, I was supposed to be a member already, but we ended up totally missing any information about the induction ceremony last year. But now I'm an official member! I've got the certificate and card to prove it. :) It was really cool, seeing how many of my friends were there too... we were all talking and hanging out while we waited for the ceremony to start. It was great listening to the leaders of the club talking about the four pillars and then having us all repeat the pledge.
   There's some fantastic stuff going on right now with the littles... I don't know how much I'm actually allowed to say right now, but as soon as I can, I'll post a full update on that. My mom posted a thing in her "Lorenzen expansion pack" group, so if you're a part of that, go read it!
   Life is a little stressful right now... not going to go into full detail, but things are definitely crazy. Everyone is freaking out at school because finals and AP exams are almost here... I don't know how I'm gonna do on my AP Calc exam. There's been weird stuff with my nursing too... currently we're looking for a new one. Plus there's this thing with one of my friends giving me the silent treatment... not fun there, either. But there's not really anything for me to do about any of these things, so I'm trying to just keep myself busy with books and art! And poems, too, but that goes without saying.
   Ooh, speaking of writing. My friend Jake and I are actually to the writing stage of our book, and it's really fun! He's a lot faster than me - I'm still on my first chapter, and he's turned out three or four, I think. But we'll get there! It's gonna be a cool thing. And even if this never gets published, it'll be SO awesome to be able to tell people that I (co)wrote a book!
   Does anyone else ever just get a kids song stuck in their head for no reason? Lately I've been on this Disney loop. I mean, that's not completely unusual for me, but it's been happening more often. "When Will My Life Begin" and "Now I Finally See the Lights" from Tangled are great songs... and I'm still stuck on "True Colors" from the movie Trolls, too. Yep.
   Well, I hope y'all have a great day, and a Happy Easter!

(I had a poem that I was gonna post here.... can't find where I put it. I'll edit that in later, too.)
