It's been a Spazzy Maddie kind of day

I've been really happy this week. It's amazing what focusing just a little harder on others can do for ya. Today was full of laughter. I was just spazzy and didn't care what anyone else thought. I got my BYU application in yesterday a whole day before the deadline haha. It feels good to not have to worry about that anymore.
I just found some really good bands which makes me so happy, like pictures 3 and 7. One of them is an Australian band called Boy & Bear. I like this song. Also a song by the Wealthy West called Love is Not Enough. Music, music, music.

I hope you're having a good day as well.

I've entered the world of Pinterest

You can follow me if you'd like.

Yay for Thanksgiving. I am grateful for a full week off of school and a lot of time spent with family and friends. I'm grateful for some solid conversations with my best friends since 3rd grade. I'm grateful for my adorable little blonde Blake cousins and the still adorable Farley cousins. It's funny to see how things change every time I go back to Bountiful. The first time I realized that as Spencer's grade graduated that I didn't know as many people at the high school, but this year going back with two new grades below mine I hardly know anyone. I went in to get a transcript form BHS and they called the office and said, "Yes I'm here with an ex-student Madison Blake." That sounded a little harsh haha, but it's OK I'm a Spartan now. It's weird how most conversations this trip revolved around college. It's an exciting time for us and I can't wait until we're all in Provo together.

Also I turned 18, woo woo.

pandora sings me to sleep

There really is nothing better then best friends. The ones that you can effortlessly talk to and laugh with. The ones that even though you're in different states, they still get you. I'm so excited to go to Utah over my birthday and Thanksgiving. I'm craving some real girl time. I miss having a small crowd of good girl friends that are down to do crafts with me, or go to the temple with me, who get my humor, who dont need boys to be happy, who have it figured out. I miss it a lot.
and I miss Spencer, this doesn't get easier.
*I'm taking a photoshop class which is lovely.
*I'm in the process of applying to Byu. yup Byu. That is the only one haha. I don't know how to "Tell you about myself" in 200 words.
*I love soup on cold days.
*Best of EFY was a good refocus on what I need to be doing. And it was so good to dance. Everyone just needs a good dance here and there.
*I read the scripture "Love thy neighbor as thyself" in a different way. If you don't properly love yourself then you don't have proper love to give to your neighbor. That was probably obvious to you but maddie just got it.
*I love Simba my car, for all of it's scratches and broken parts.
*I oddly miss the snow. It really is beautiful.
*There are so many places I want to go in the world it is slightly overwhelming.
*I need a good book.
*I want to make a paper mache animal head so badly.

this is of importance

Things that made this week exciting:
*I bought two things of silly putty-it's an obsession
*I heard Christmas music playing in a store. (exciting/confusing)
*First Choir Concert as a Chamber Singer, so great
*family GNO at Ichiban
*birthday dinner for Lauren and Karley Mackay with 24 of my favorite people
*Going on to the roof of LCHS-sooo pretty

The next exciting fact has to do with a group called Invisible Children. It's a foundation that is helping to fight against the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda/Central Africa. There is a man named Joseph Kony who has been abducting many, MANY children and turning them into soldiers and forcing them to kill and do terrible things. Today President Obama announced that he will send 100 soldiers to central Africa to help stop Kony. This is so great. My friends and I are currently working with Invisible Children on their Frontline Tour fundraising project. The money from this project is going to help build radio towers so that villages will be able to get a warning before the LRA arrives. It also goes into foundations that help with the traumatic recovery of the returned children. If you can DONATE anything or want to LEARN more then click here:

This is my fundraising page, sadly I don't have any money yet but our team as a whole is doing well but we can always do better! Spread the word. THANKS

Ive always been a fan of long car rides

So I just returned from our Chamber retreat up in the mountains of Badger(4 hours away). I always learn a lot when I go on trips like this so here we go:
*Never underestimate the power of a compliment, a smile or a hug. Sometimes its the people you assume already know they are great, or that seem confident that really need it the most. Also recognize that there is always something good to say to someone, because there is good in everyone. I really believe that.
*There's something magical about being in the mountains. First of all it was strinkingly beautiful. There were huge trees covered in green moss and red ladybugs. A river ran through the center of the camp with quaint bridges. I can't really explain how happy it made me. I've really come to be overwhelmed with the beauty of nature that God has created all for us. It's amazing. The second reason I love being in the mountains is because it's a barrier from the rest of the world. There aren't any distractions and no where for people to escape to. You get to spend time with people that don't run in your same circles. People are truly themselves, raw and clean, stripped of their highschool masks. I love it, I wish I could see all of my peers this way because it makes it so much easier to love them.
*My choir teacher Mr. Brookey has gone way up on my respect level. He spends so much time and effort for his choirs. He said two things that stuck with me. The first is to surround yourself with beauty and to eliminate conflict. Beautiful things, people, music and experiences. Its so simple but I needed to hear it. The second was that there is never too much love to give. That is so true. I'm working on that. It's amazing how much happier you are when you start to forget yourself.
*Something finally clicked with our choir. It was a combination of getting the notes down, passion and blending as people and good friends. We finally made music. I think I've mentioned that we're singing a song called Water Night by Eric Whitacre. It breaks up into 14 parts and its so beautiful. The poetry behind it really gets me. Anyway our last practice was when everyone really got into it. It was such a special moment when we hit our big chords. I heard an old guy outside the door say, "woah, that sounds so good. It kind of hurts." I couldnt help but smile. Music is powerful and I'm so happy that I get to share it with others.
*Sunday morning 5 of us mormon kids in the choir as well as our seminary teacher (who was also a chaperone) woke up early and walked to the top of the camp and had a small church meeting. It was another special moment for sure. Even though it was freezing and we were all exhausted and dressed in sweats instead of dresses the spirit was the same.

Anyway, it was an unforgettable weekend.

We are the people

     Guys. I don't read very often. But I found a book that's next to Hunger Games on my favorite books list. It's called Divergent. Please read it. I spent my whole friday reading, I was enthralled. It's good.
      Have fun at homecoming my Bountiful friends. It's stupid to say that I'm jealous because it's a given, but I just said it so whatever haha.
     I just auditioned for Honor Choir. The sight reading was impossible, the hardest one my Choir Teacher has seen in a long time. Sharps flats and naturals ALL over the place, I bombed it. At least I got the rhythm right mostly. Oh well it was fun.

parrots and princesses

I walked into my art class yesterday and there was a girl with a parrot on her shoulder! She was just so casual about it. It had just been sitting there since fourth period. For some reason no one really cared. Since when you can you bring your parrot to school with you? pretty funny

Yesterday I tried out for the 2012 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Royal Court. Most senior girls do it, it's kind of a tradition. Last year the Rose Queen was from our high school which was exciting. I basically did it to get the tickets into the rose ball which they throw for all the participants and their dates. The audition was actually really fun, very formal and intense. The first round the 1000ish girls get 15 seconds to say why you want to be on rose court. Now that that's done I just need to find me a boy to take haha.

Life is lovely.

it was not in vain

A day off of school in the middle of the week is actually quite refreshing. It's like having an extra-mini weekend.
Quick So SO-CAL for Jane:
*This is probably a very big stereotype but I've noticed that practically none of my friends type using the "home row" that we was drilled into our heads in elementary. It's weird! They type with only a few fingers! blows my mind. (don't be offended California readers you might be an exception..)
*Seniors here spend their first semester stressed with TONS of college applications. Not just the Utah State, possible BYU, U of U or SUU apps. They apply to everywhere! I've never even heard of half the colleges and universities. I knew seniors last year who applied to 25+ schools. AH. It is pretty cool though because they really are all over the United States. (and Canada :)) Makes me want to apply to at least one other school then BYU just for fun. I'm thinking Pratt Institute in NYC?
*Our mutual activity this week is Stake Young Women's Surf-day. hahaha YES. So SoCal

I'm slightly jealous of my friend Camille right now. Not just because she's at college, but because she's in a foreign film club at college. She told me to watch Sophia Scholl. It's about a girl and her brother Hans in Nazi Germany and how they try to spread anti-Nazi literature. Basically it's just inspiring. I actually cried and I literally NEVER cry in movies, not even Charlie, didn't actually break a tear in The Help although I was close. That's a really great movie as well. It was really interesting watching this movie (Sophia Scholl) because I realized how much I'm growing up. I remember walking into my mom's room as a tween seeing that the movie was in a different language and had subtitles and rolling my eyes and walking out. Yet I sat through a whole foreign film, on my own and loved it. woohoo

I've also, thanks to my friend Sam, got hooked on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. If you don't watch it already I suggest adding that to your TVO list.

My friend Kenzie and I found this little cupcake shop in South Pasadena called My Sweet Cupcakes. We went there for our second time today and they have delicious cupcakes. They have unique flavors so we always end up buying a couple and sharing them all. Today we tried their Plantain Avocado one. I was a little hesitant but they said they won cupcake wars with it so I gave it a shot and it was surprisingly good. So if anyone wants to come on out here we can take a trip to this cupcake shop and the tons of other places I want to show you guys. please come visit me haha

First Day Of School

La Canada has soo many little traditions, most of them having to due with seniors. Starting last night with the senior girl tping the junior girls. Seniors girls all get pink shirts that we wear the first day of school. Seniors always get red crowns for the first day and on assembly days. AND there is a senior breakfast in front of the North Gym on the first day. It's crazy but it's kind of fun. First day of school...ohhhboy. It was actually fairly good. Im making a lot of new friends this year and I have cool people in my classes this year. I love having a car and being able to drive myself to lunch. Chamber was good we already are sounding good and we're singing Water Night by Eric Whitacre. Love him, love the song. Look it up. I looove my Mirror Themes class already. Its an english class that brings in art history and theology and the teacher is just really good. Maddies happy about that. Geology will be fine, economics will be fine. Honestly I'm really excited to learn this year. My art portfolio class is going to be more intense and I'm ready to focus a lot more on my art. AND I dont even have a sixth period so I get to come home early every day. Now I'm just excited for seminary to start! That was completely serious, I am. It's Old Testament which I don't know very well so I'm pumped.
No matter what is thrown my way, no matter who it is from, I'm going to be fine. But I am going to do my best to eliminate unnessecary burdens and make this a great senior year. :)

3 1/2 weeks gone

I'm finally home. For only a week but hey it feels good. I've been at trek, then to Utah, then to EFY, then to Girl's Camp in Santa Barbara. Let me dispel my words of wisdom from these past weeks, because I've learned a lot:
*it's not worth wasting your time trying to impress a boy that you're only going to know for one week
*"Never Suppress a Generous Thought"-Sister Kimball
      -probably one of the most important things I learned from EFY and it immediately was recorded into my memory and replays anytime I catch myself suppressing a generous thought which is sadly often.
*I'm really good at sliding right into the "sister/bff" mode for guys. You know you're nothing more than friends when they introduce you as a cousin so that girls don't think of you as competition hahaha, I'm totally OK with that though.
*I heard the phrase "be in the world but not of the world" again and I got something new out of it. I usually focus on the latter part of the quote but I realized that you have to have both parts. You really do need to be in the world so that you can influence others. I sometimes get so caught up in myself which is sad but I focus on just keeping myself full, when I should also be focusing on filling others as well. This year I'm making it a goal to be more "in" high school. I did a terrible job at this last year, I tried to stay as much out of it as possible. I'm going to embrace the traditions and games and clubs and everything else, minus the parties. I'm excited! I got my senior packet in the mail the other day and the senior bonfire and tp night is coming up soon. Also my senior portrait is on friday. Weird that I'm actually a senior and weird that I'll be 18 in about 4 months.
*I'm stubborn and I like to do things my own way sometimes. So when everyone else was making flower headbands I made this one-
*I love reading Psalms, those words are beautiful.
*Some people try so hard to fill their "need to be loved" with boyfriends/girlfriends but you really only need Christ to fill it.
*The desires or your heart are just as important as your actions. They go hand in hand. The girls camp leader signed me up to sing a solo/duet on the first night of camp but I only got about an hour or two to learn it at camp. I was struggling cause I had never heard it, it was super low and I was so caught up in making sure I would sound good and hoping people might be impressed. But right before the meeting started I caught myself and realized how selfish I was being. Instead I prayed that people would feel the spirit and the message of the song through me. It went better than I ever practiced.
*The feeling of being trapped is the worst ever. One night of camp Camille and I stayed up till 2:30 talking and we saw two mice in our room. Ever since our mice incident at our Bountiful house I've hated them. I was freaking out knowing I had to sleep in the room with them and terrified that I would wake up to a mouse crawling across my face haha. We ended up putting towels under the doors and I slept completely in my sleeping bag haha I survived:)
*Every girls camp should have a dance party.
*I miss Spencer so much it's crazy.
*It's easy to like people that like you, but we should focus more on liking those that don't like us.

well that's all. basically it's been a great summer and I can't wait for Lake Powell in a week!

Give Me This Mountain

Yes this was my second trek and no I wasn't that excited to go. But I'm glad I did. It was completely different than our Utah trek. The handcarts were heavier and the paths were not nice and straight it was a lot harder. But it was still fun. I was missing Spence a lot on this trek but thank goodness I had Ali there-honestly I would die without her. Something hit me when I was on this trek. When we found out we were moving I prayed SO hard that I could just have one good friend. One girl that understood me and that had my same standards that I could be best friends with. I was blessed with many friends but I just realized I had a more specific answer to my prayers. Ali is definitely that one friend. Others come and go, are fun at times and frustrating at others but Ali's solid. Anyway, back to trek. There was a hoedown which was lovely, embroidery, women's pull, testimony hill (straight up for 1/2 was reaaalllly hard but the watermelon at the top made it worth it), woodchopping, archery, gun shooting, visits from Porter Rockwell, good punch, and hole in the rock. It was good and I learned a lot and this time I actually felt a very strong appreciation for our pioneers. They're warriors. 
                                            classic sam. BFFS
                  I love Camille. Seriously she saved me this trek, can't wait for girls camp!
                                  Clara, Morgan, Kierstan, Kenzie, Eliza, Me
                                     Chad baby, love this boy
                              Elliot's a stud, we're going to be hanging out more
                      The boys had to carry all of the girls across the "Sweet Water River" But this is Sam carrying Chris Skaggs across haha
                     This guy was sweet, a real mountain man indeed
                                       Egyptian Rat Slap, we're addicted
                  I love my Ma. Seriously she's hilarious and just the best. Thanks Sister Grigg!
   My brother and one of my best friends Porter. They made him "die" one of the days and I actually cried. I love this kid, he reminds me so much of Spencer. Every night he would yell "BADDAYY" from the other side of camp, made me happy. Oh and he carried our whole cart, he's an ox.

We got home at 10pm Saturday night and a group of us were at the La Canada theaters at 10:10 to see Harry Potter 7 part 2. Not even time to shower, we're dedicated. It was GOOD. Ali and I have made a goal to take one photo booth picture a week this summer no matter where we are. We've done it so far but we were worried about being at trek and missing a week. However the movie theater had one so we got really excited and ran over to it with Camille. But because it was 12:35 and they were trying to get everyone out of the theatre it was off. But that didn't stop us, Camille plugged it back in and we rebooted it and quickly took our pictures and ran. It was hilarious, I don't know how we didn't get caught. It was a great weekend to say the least.

now's the time, if anyone's still interested

I think I'm pretty good at appreciating things and getting the most out of them, but sometimes no matter how great you knew it was at the time, looking back you see a completely new perspective and you're gratitude hits you again 10 fold. I wish I could put into words how amazing my trip to Italy was. I still think about a whole lot and frequently long to go back and relive moments. The fact that it was a choir tour was probably the best aspect about it. Being able to sing such beautiful songs in such detailed, ornate, ancient and beloved places is something few 17 year old girls get to do. And honestly to try to explain how amazing that really was is quite impossible. I can say that each performance ended with tears and I was continually left in awe. But even just sitting on the bus listening to my favorite songs and staring out the window and the countryside of Italy was amazing. I am so lucky it's insane. Some things I learned while in Italy:
You've got to love. There's nothing else to it. You've got to love the little Italian men that say chao bella as you pass and the African men who call you Shakira and are constantly shoving fake purses in your face. You've got to love the music you're singing even if you've sung it 100 times. You've got to love the food even if it Chicken and potatoes for the sixth straight night. You've got to love the people you're with and give everyone a chance even if you are completely different. I was shocked to get to know some of the kids in my choir. I realize more and more how quickly I stereotype and build barriers. It was so fun to sit with different people at almost every meal and to just love people for who they are, I admit I could have been a lot better at that though. You've got to love you're closest friends being with you in Italy and not trying to impress them and just having a blast playing cards at 1 in the morning or touring the Vatican or teaching them to make bracelets or getting the daily gelato. You've got to love the Italian high school kids we met and they're fascination with California. You've got to love the architecture and the background behind every basillica and building. It completely amazes me that these people built such large and beautiful buildings with such little resources. I seriously don't get it. I wish we put as much passion and creativity into every building like they did. You've got to love you're tour guides and their attempts to make jokes and keep people interested. This post could go on forever but I don't think it's as interesting for anyone else as it is for me.
Quick highlights:
*gondola ride in Venice
*Singing in the baptistry at Pisa -11 second reverb
*St. Peter's Basillica(singing and touring)
*Sistine Chapel-unbelievable could have stayed in there forever
*the David- Michalengelo is my new hero.
*Bell tower in Florence
*Last concert in Rome
*Nighttime adventures/sneaking into peoples rooms and around the hotels
*Last dinner/dance party with a random Italian work group
*Art everywhere
*getting pooped on by a bird-it's my 1st time so it's kind of monumental
*Singing for the Pope
*ipod spiltters
*margherita pizza
*sparkling water- I messed up and bought sparkling instead of flat 3 different times
*Gelato at least once a day
*really good swiss chocolate on the plane rides

Full Speed Ahead

SUMMER 2011 baby. It's already been great, and I'm already getting a little worn out.  
Graduation was lovely. I love the football field ceremony + the colleges on the caps. 
                                                       Brent- BYU
                                                          seniors woo
                                          brennan- University of Victoria Canada
Saturday I went to Make Music Pasadena. Basically bands were playing all over Pasadena and it was all free. The Indie Rock Stage was the most popular and I saw The Morning Benders and Ra Ra Riot. 1. I LOVE live music. I can't go to enough concerts. 2. There were sooo many trendy/hip people there. It was crazy. Utah wouldn't have known what hit them. We also went to a World Music Stage and listened to a cool Brazilian group and a Jazz Stage. 
Jenna Me Rachel
                    The bassist was rad
Monday Ali and I took a quick trip to the Americana and I got a new moleskine Sketchbook. YES. I'm so excited to fill it up this summer. Then we swam of course.
Tuesday we took the beach bus down to Santa Monica Pier with a bunch of girls. It was way way fun. I got my nap in the beach, in the sand, AND a photobooth picture, AND a panini AND a bad sunburn on my legs.
Wednesday we got a big group (the beach group plus more) and went to Sunthrift. It's the biggest thrift store I've ever seen. Kinda overwhelming at first but we all got some sweet things. Including a children's book from 1969 with sweet pictures that I can't wait to use. (Jane you'd love it) 

Basically I'm trying to take advantage of the fact that I have nothing to do this summer and so I'm trying to jampack it with fun adventures. Week one has been a success but there's more items to be accomplished including building a tree house, painting shoes, picnik at Descanso Gardens, Venice.....the list goes on. Stay tuned

One smart fellow he felt smart

It's crazy how many deep emotions I've felt this week. From extreme dislike, anger, sadness, anxiety, stress, relieved, euphoric to nostalgic. At least I know I'm alive and my heart is working, maybe a little too well. As of now the emotion highest on the list is satisfied. I'm happy with how things are going.
We have half days this week and I only have two finals and they shouldn't be too difficult.
Ali and I are in a band called The Border Collies with Sam, Emmet and Rachel.
I made Chamber Singers! It's the top choir at La Canada and I'm really excited!
Just spent a lovely family night at the Americana eating at the Cheesecake Factory and getting some new church clothes.

Here's my new favorite thing to do:
This one doesn't make a whole lot of sense because you have to work with the words already there...but what the heck it's still fun to do :)

Good Morning, Son

Meet Rachel Thorpe. We're both wearing planet shirts and we didn't even plan it! She's awesome, seriously so chill. And she's a drummer which is just rad, I've always wanted to be a drummer. She's also a junior girl which is lovely because most of my friends are 1. seniors and are leaving 2. boys. 
Meet Scott Gray. He is one of these seniors boys mentioned above. He's just a good kid. Always making sure I'm OK and always planning something fun. I'm definitely going to miss him.
Meet my mother. Two weeks ago we took a trip into Hollywood and ate at Umami (so gooood) and went to Amoeba. I love her even though I'm not very patient with her.

Meet my newest piece of art.
This was just pretty so I'm throwin it in the mix.

Meet one of my all time favorite songs: Still Fighting It by Ben Folds
(fun fact: I put "and we're still fighting" as my status yesterday because I was listening to this and I just felt like pulling the classic 'put the lyrics to your favorite song as your status' move. I didn't realize how lame "and we're still fighting" sounds haha awkward... It's deleted now don't worry.)

I Will Never Be Tall

Unlike most of my readers I'm not out of school yet. Still have two weeks...bah. Now is the time when teachers really don't know what to do with their students, and they don't feel like teaching so they just start assigning random projects that are usually pointless. But we're all pushing through. 
Brent taught me how to use photoshop a little bit. Here's what I came up with:
 I'm going to do a lot of things this summer:
*get good at the piano again
*take a letterpress class
*design and print a shirt (with Eliza's help)
*attempt to write and record a song (with Sam's help)
*make friends of course because a lot of mine are leaving me
*go to TONS of concerts
*do sweet chalk art (Lisa Adachi inspired me)
*Learn how to do bokeh photography like Maryn
*GO TO LAKE POWELL- I go through with drawls at this time of year: 1. Boating. Seriously I crave it, I NEED to wakeboard. 2. BYU football
*Trek- even though this will be two summers in a row I'm pretty stoked. I just realized I'm going to be one of the "cool seniors", we'll see if I can actually be cool.
*Girls Camp: They're letting the oldest girls sleep in tents one of the nights, SCORE.
*Have a weekly movie night with a projector in the backyard? I don't know I just made that one up...
*continue Loa's Health Bootcamp-I'm stoked
*learn how and successfully make a music video
*go to at least 2 food trucks a month
I'm going to have to stop here because honestly this list could go on for quite awhile. I'm a BIG fan of bucket lists, but you should know that by now.

alright off to do my last IP of the year in Art. I've got a weird idea, I hope it works. Song of the Day: Anything I'm Not by Lenka. I will forever and always be a fan of Lenka. At least her first CD, I haven't met her second one yet. She's one of the only girl singers I actually like. Her and Ingrid, and Regina mostly, and there's probably more but those are my 3 for now. anyway have a happy day bye.
