I don't really know what the title should be, so i just put a heart. I feel bad, i am a horrible blogger!!! I haven't blogged in like 2 months!!! Since my last post, school has been let out, and summer has come in!!!!! It's already the middle of the summer!!!! I am doing this cross-country camp at my high school, which is a lot of fun. I also did a basketball camp, but that's over (which was tons of fun too!). The summer's been pretty fun, camps-wise, but other times, it can get really lonely. Last year, my "friends" talked about me behind my back, telling each other that I shouldn't knit or crochet, that I shouldn't wear things that i've made to school. They seemed embarrassed to be around me because of what i'd wear to school. I never really had clothes that "fit the bill". I have barely any clothes that i can call my own. I am usually wearing my sister's old clothes that aren't in style anymore. It bothers me that i know i don't have any friends because of what i look like on the outside.
About 12 days ago, my beloved science teacher passed way. He suffered a heart attack and died. It seems so surreal, right now. I feel like I'm almost in denial about it. Like i could still go visit him at school. I viewed him as an adult that was MEANT to be teaching. He could connect with his classes. Students wanted to do well, they looked forward to his class. He was a go-lucky-guy, he had a great sense of humor (especially with his fart machine at teacher meetings!) :D!!! He has kept a special place in all of our hearts, that'll never fade away. He was like a candle, using his life to light the way for others.

My knitting, crocheting, and sewing has been hibernating and i don't know why... I just don't feel as proud of it anymore. Maybe because everyone i know says i should stop because it's "not cool"... I don't know.

Happy 4th of July. I marched in the parade with my band, but the bells are really heavy, and my back started to hurt halfway through.

I am gonna post some pictures of my FOs from a really long time ago!!! Here they are!!!

some dishclothes
some crayon holders for my Spanish teacher (who has 2 little kids)

Some fingerless mitts!
A random baby bib that i made from some leftover cotton

Hi there,

Found your blog from the Teen Knitting Group on Ravelry, and it's really good! I love all the pics of your FOs (esp. the crayon holders--what a cute idea!)

Anyway, I just wanted to comment and say that I'm sorry about your science teacher passing away and your friends talking behind your back. Be different, unique--wearing clothes you knit/crochet yourself is SO COOL and trendy! So much better than spending lotsa money on namebrands and labels.

I kinda know what you're going through--school is tough, socially-wise. I had a few years where I didn't fit in at all, but things will get better, trust me.

So, sorry that this has become a novel, but I just wanted to let you know that I hope things get better for you! And, once again, the blog is great!
