"Young Adult" Blog Party!!!

This blog part can be found at: Please go and enter it! It's really easy and very fun! (Plus, if you have ever been labeled as one of those teenagers who won't do anything but sit, eat, sleep, and talk back to the parents, I think you would really like doing this!!!! ;) )
Anyway, the rules are to list 10 things that you do instead of just sitting around being lazy and bored. So here goes!
1. I love to read!!! I especially like Christian fiction. It just doesn't get much better than diving into a story where you know that you aren't going to have to quickly jump back out of it because there were a few sharks roaming through it's pages, if you know what I mean. ;)

2. I like to write. One day soon I would love to be a published author. I am currently working on a story that I think I might like to have published, but I guess we will have to wait and see.

3. I listen to music. My family is very musical, and one of the things I enjoy doing is listening to music (most of the time while I am doing some other activity, but on some occasions I do love to just sit down, close my eyes, and just listen. :) ) Most of the songs that I listen to are contemporary christian.

4. I work on my dramas. At my church we have a drama team. I ADORE being apart of the drama team. It seems like I can speak to people so much better in creative movement than in actual 'speaking'.

5. Photography. My mother is a photographer, which means that she some very cool (not to mention kinda BIG) cameras. It also means that I can take these cameras outside and shoot to my hearts content.

6. Play some basketball. When I was in Middle School my life's purpose was to play college basketball at Virginia Tech. I have since changed my mind, but I still like going outside and working on my dribbling or shooting technique.

7. Make jewelry. I have my own little business, Katie's Kreations, that helps me to not be completely broke. But, making jewelry isn't a chore of course. I like making stuff with my hands!

8. Play the bass guitar. I am in the praise band at my church, and I play the bass guitar. I just started learning the bass a few months ago, but it is very easy to learn and I really enjoy playing the band!

9. Hang out with my family. Most 'teenagers' think that spending time with your family is totally a waste of time. But not me. I know that one day I am going to be gone off to college, be married, have a family of my own and that time will never again be the same as it is right now. So I cherish the time I have with my family while I can and I look forward to the memories that I am going to be able to look back upon.

10. Astronomy. This may sound incredibly dull to some of you, but to me it's awesome. And it's not just astronomy that I like! I also LOVE the sky. (Don't worry! I will stop there and not bore you with WHY I love the sky. Haha, just know that I think if you take some of your time and look astronomy {or even the sky} up on your computer, you would be AMAZED at what God has put there for us to see!)

So there you have it! Ten things that I do instead of being a couch potato. Oh, and if you enter this blog party, make sure to tell me! I would love to read your answers!

I love this blog party, and will probably participate :). And is that called the 'horse head nebula', by any chance? It was my desktop wallpaper a while back :). You are so right about God's amazing creation beyond our atmosphere... I wish that I could see the stars from where I live :/. Anyway, interesting post!
