Sorry, but I am just ultra excited right now!!! I couldn't help but post about it, so if this post sounds really wild you'll have to excuse me. :)
I'm not sure exactly why I feel so pumped; it must be because just about everything in life is going great! YEEEEAAAAH!!!

But for the sake of understandability I'll try and categorize them. Ok?.....ok. Sound good?.......good :)

Well, let's see, what comes first.....hmmmm.

Well, 1, speech club has been soooo so so much fun this year. For one debate been incredibly awesome. I have learned so much. I had absolutely no idea I would love debate like I do now!! It has been so incredibly, extraordinarily, fantastical!!! Yeah!! ......and 2 I'm not such a nervous wreck like I was last year.

I remember being terrified to death last year over doing impromptu, and apologetics, even though I'd already been in competition the year before and I already had some experience. I also didn't do very well in competition; I didn't place in anything I competed in.......though I'd do it again if I had to, because I learned so much about God through apologetics.....and learning to seek God for satisfaction......and not tournament results.

What used to be my least favorite speech category (Impromptu) is now one of my favorite. I don't know,.. I feel like I've gotten addicted to standing and speaking in front of people....entertaining them, or persuading them, or making them vote affirmative......HAHA!!
In addition to that, I've already broken to regionals in 5 categories (Debate, impromptu, apologetics, Persuasive, and Duo....YEAH!) and I still have 2 more tournaments I'm competing at......which means if I break in one more thing than I'll qualify as a Regionals IronMan. That would be awesome!! So I'm working on an OI and an expos that I might be able to break in.

Ok, moving on.....what else am I jazzed about?.....

Oh yeah! I just finished both my Affirmative and Negative cases and I'm pretty happy with them. Can't wait to debate with 'em! And now I can move to my OI and expos(on submarines) and spend all my waking hours them!!! Yes, I know what you're thinking, "This guy is completely whacked out! He's addicted to speaking in front of people...Ha!....what a weirdo!" And, yes, you would be right in thinking that. :) is good. *grin*

Let's see, what else is there?........Aw. I've still got an awesome family and it's soon to get bigger! Before I know it Natey Boy will be married and I will have 2 more brother-in-laws........well, sort of.......I guess Conner and Calvin would be "brother-in-laws-once-removed".,....if that makes sense......heh heh!
And in addition to that I've got a huge group of awesome friends!!! And I mustn't forget awesome food! YUP. In fact, we're having pie and ice cream tonight! Yippee! So I've got an awesome family, awesome friends, and awesome food!!

There's more too!...believe it or not! Probly my favorite christian music artist is Steven Curtis Chapman. And I just found out that on his site he has his own radio station so you can listen to almost all his music for free! So I've been listening to his music while doing speech and stuff!
One of my favorite songs is called "Moment Made for Worshiping". The lyrics are awesome. You should listen to it. Go to this link-, click the "play music" button, go down to his "All About Love" CD, click it and then you can skip to the song with the player. It's track 15. The player is a little messed so you'll have to go to the song that's after the one labeled- "Moment Made for Worshiping". Leave a comment if you like it!

And there's one more thing.....the weather is changing! Have you noticed we're getting more day light?? It's been getting warmer too. Spring is on it's way. I love spring time!!!

Well, there ya have it. Those are just few things are making me feel hyper!
Thanks for reading this endless and wild post. Have a good day!!!!

By the way, if you're wondering, I took these pictures last's my shadow on the lawn. And the first picture I'm holding up the camera with my both hands can be free. The camera was on a tripod...


  1. So that's what that picture is...

    I've been really excited to about speech! I'm only 4 things though... you have like 6... wow!

    Oh and are you going to the rainmakers touney???

    Well, see ya next speech club:D

  2. Of course he is going to rainmakers destiny. Imagine a tourney just up the road in portland and aaron not going!?! YOU woulda thunk, well I guess we cant expect good things seeing how your only 14!!!! jkjkjk

  3. Drew, i should have never told you I was 14...

  4. I've always wondered where you got your profile pic...I thought it was just something you found on the internet...know I now it's actually you...Thanks for opening my eyes :)
    Though my pic is is awesome!!!

    So Nathan's really getting married...who would have known :) That's so cool!

    See you at speech. Mr. Sleaddvinsky (I prefer Uncle Ronnie as your nickname)

  5. Your probably right destiny, you never shoulda told me, but now it hurts more when you beat me in the tourney. So watch out, i may have to kill ya!:)

  6. Hey have you heard Chapman's song called's really sweet!

  7. Yeah, that's a good one! He is a remarkable songwriter...'probly the best christain songwriter of our time' Mr. McMurray has said. :)

    Not only is his music really good but his lyrics are all doctrinally sound! It always ruins Christian songs for me when they're written with some kind of doctrinal error. :) That's one of reasons I like his songs so much.

  8. Steven Curtis Chapman is one of my favorite artists too! I love both of those songs... Moment made for Worshiping and Cinderella. :D

  9. I like chapman as well, anyone else you guys like? T-mac, jermey camp, matthew west?

  10. Oh and I love Steven Curtis Chapman's songs! I like the Cinderella one a lot...

    Oh and are you guys coming to our church today??? You should!!!

  11. Sounds like life is going great! I'm happy for you! Oh and that last picture looks like you're missing your right arm :o) Well ttyl

  12. Pretty cool Aaron! I'm glad I got to see you again tonight. Keep working on those speeches which are outstanding!
    God Bless!

  13. Hey, you saw my OI right... well, I REALLY need to cut some and I'm not sure what???... so... got any idea's??? Were any parts boring?... any parts that didn't have to be in?... well, just thought I'd ask you:D Thanks!

  14. Hey Destiny, I thought everything in your OI was pretty good!... But since you have to cut it,.. probably the most 'boring' scene is when Matthew drives Anne home. It's interesting what she says but it goes a little long. You could keep that scene, just cut it down to the funniest parts and stuff.

    In fact, you could try doing that with the other scenes, (if it's still too long), where she(Anne) talks a lot. Cut down what she says to the funniest or most entertaining parts. :)

    The main thing is to just cut out the small parts that don't really build the story, develop the characters, or entertain.

    I really like the scenes where she prays about growing up and then insults the other lady and isn't sorry. Ha ha! Those would be good to keep!
    It's going to be a great OI! Too bad I have to compete against it. :D

  15. Okay, I actually have been cutting out a lot of that first scene with Matthew... and a lot of the other scenes I've been cutting down some too:D

    My favorite parts are the prayer and when she apologizes to Mrs. Lynde too! Have you seen the movie?

    Thanks for your help.. oh, and it will be very hard competing against you! I saw yours and you did really good! Oh, and I found the copy you gave David... I'll give it to you at the next speech club...
    Oh, and we watched "Mr. Beans Holiday" and thought it was hilarious!!! We couldn't stop laughing... my favorite parts are when he spills the coffee, eats the sea food stuff, and my favorite part was when he tries to get some money and puts out the radio and dances and sings and stuff (that was soooooooo funny!!!). Anyway, I liked it all...
