...emotional women, dusty shoes and roasted starbursts.

this was my YCL my first year of camp.
she'd be horrified is she knew i had posted this.
ps. she's MARRIED now. ahiekcjkjkgjeijuid!
that's too crazy to think about.

Goodbye dear world. Guess where I am off to? Girls Camp. Fun, fun! This is my last year EVER and so I am planning on making it a good one... because I'm a big believer in the whole, 'attitude is everything' stuff...
As a friend on facebook posted, Girls Camp means, "Goodbye complicated world. Hello campfire smell, emotional women, dusty shoes, and roasted starbursts." I couldn't have said it better.

However, though it is a 'complicated world', I am going to miss it. I am going to miss my Daddy and sister. (My Mommy is coming up with me. Hip hip hooray!) I'm going to miss my newly shaved doggie too. You know what else I'm going to miss? My friends. I like my friends. That's why they're my friends. I know, I know. It's only one week. Suck it up. Okay I will.
While I'm gone, be good my chickadees and I will give a full report when I get back! Or maybe not a full report because what happens at girls camp... stays at girls camp. But still, a report of some sort none the less!

Have a wonderful week my friends!

Love, Sasha Beth


ps. Happy birthday Janie on the 29th! I LUH YOUUU!!!
pps. Happy birthday Aria on the 30th! I LUH YOUUU TOO!!!

Buzz Lightyear

Abish got a buzz! She looks fantastically adorable! You can't really tell from the pictures but boy! You can sure tell in real life! she looks a little thinner except for the fact that now you can see her rolls. No matter! She's cooler for the summer which is all that matters... huh Abish.


"She's like an old lady who's had long hair her whole life and has now just discovered that she looks great in a pixie cut!" Thank you Katie.

The Last Song

A couple nights ago, I attended my friend's party where we saw The Last Song. Okay, pause. I don't consider myself to be a very emotional person but this movie may or may not have made me cry. Wow. That was a surprise. I don't even cry in movies. But apparently, now I do.

Glorious Evening


A couple nights ago, I attended my friend's party where we saw The Last Song. Okay, pause. I don't consider myself to be a very emotional person but this movie may or may not have made me cry. Wow. That was a surprise. I don't even cry in movies. But apparently, now I do. ps. Even if you don't like Miley Cyrus, you should still see it because Liam Nielson is definitely what I would call eye candy. Definitely.

Following the movie, we had a dance party on the deck which is how summer should be, at least that's what I think. When it's just me and my girlfriends, we are quite the dancers if you know what I mean. It was a glorious evening. My friends are rad, thanks so much girls!!!

ps. My latest obsession is white pants. It's quite bizarre.

Our Night

This summer, I have "hung out" with friends about every day. And it's been glorious. I have wanted to write about my many adventures but I have felt that it would bore those who read it. What we do may be exciting to me but probably not to anyone else. For example: Two nights ago, I ran through the sprinklers for the first time. That was quite the night... for me. Does that make sense?

Anyways, I digress. A couple of days ago, a group of friends and I decided to film what we did that evening. It was quite the adventure if I do say so myself. But I don't really have to say so for myself because here is the finished product!

We're... quirky. Yes, I think it's sufficient to say that.

sasha and the pet carrier


It was just one of those days, I'm afraid.
But you've gotta have them.
I live for those days.
Who else loves those days?

Papa.

I can't believe I did what I just did. Or rather I didn't do. I didn't wish my Paps a Happy Father's Day on my blog! What kind of person am I? I broke the world's biggest cliche. All my other blog friends had detailed entries about their best friend/father and a baby picture with them. And here I am, with a day late post and NO baby picture. But I do have a current one...

Just kidding. This was 20 something years ago.
Isn't he a stud?

This next one on the other hand, is about 4 years old...

In Paris, France with my beautiful Mama.

Dear Dad. I love you lots. I admire you for so many reasons. You can't really count them. (No, that's not a lazy excuse because I don't want to name them, it's actually the truth.) Dad, you are the smartest person I know, as well as the funniest. You know how to make me smile when it's the last thing I want to do. You are respectful and caring for your girls, all of us, even Abish. Deep, deep down. Dad, I love you. You are the best Dad in the world. (Yes, I have to say that, but yes, I also mean it.) Love you so much.

Katherine Sarah

Just as I have sat down to write a magnificent post about beauty, love, life and lollipops, I have had the sudden inkling to take a bath until I get so pruney it hurts. So that's what I'm going to do. But, I would like post my most recent people pictures really fast! This subject just so happens to be none other then my bestie, Katherine Sarah. I love her to death and she is gorgeous. The end!

MP




Happy Birthday MP.
Love you bunches.
-sasha fierce.


ps. you can check out her blog here: http://lifefromarose.blogspot.com/

What's in a Name?

Believe it or not, my real name is not Sha-Sha. Nor is it Sasha. It's actually Alexandra. Surprise world! However, Sasha is my nickname and I don't really know how I came up with Sha-Sha but I did. I like Sasha better because I don't like Alexandra. You'll see why in a bit.

Today as I was eating my fruit and nut bar when I had an idea to make a video. And so, I got out the video camera and pushed record. And I just started talking which generated... this!

I like to ramble. I didn't know that until today. But hey, you learn something new every day so I think this is officially my new... knowledge. And I have a piece of knowledge for you too! Did you know that I change the 'My favorite link... At the moment' link on the sidebar quite often? Surprise my dear friends! Right now it's on one of my favorites. Enjoy.

It was rough and tough but I don't have to worry about taking it again for oh... three months? Hip hip hooray.

Erin/Kate

This shout out goes out to one of my favorite girlie twirlies, Erin.

Erin and I have been best buds for about a year now. We met in dance freshman year but never really talked. Then we had a class together again sophomore year. And then to seal the deal, we worked at the water park together last summer and have been, if you ask me, rather inseparable since. I suppose that's what watermarks will do to ya...

I absolutely love taking pictures of PEOPLE. Not so much landscapes or objects, and so Erin graciously allowed me to steal her away for half a day and capture about 300 moments on my other best bud, Nina the Nikon.

Here are a few of the finished products. Isn't she gorgeous?



Dear Kate. I love you. Love Anne.

No bigs.

"you have a very good future ahead of you. you have nice teeth."
such a sweet man...

Today I went to a health care day camp. Okay, I'm a legit nerd. No bigs. But here's the thing, I thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so, that I stayed a little too long on the telemetry floor. Apparently I wasn't supposed to stay an hour later then planned because my supervisors kind of thought I was abducted... but I wasn't! So it's all good!

I got to shadow a nurse named Chris. He was a delight and explained everything to me, step by step. I can honestly say, I feel like I learned A TON today. There were various patient cases, which I won't go into for confidentiality reasons, but I will say that despite the different circumstances for each person, I still wanted to help in any way I could. I wanted to comfort the family members and make the patient as comfortable as possible.

However, I was not allowed to do any of those things. "I am a watcher. Not a doer. I am a watcher. Not a doer." But I tried to put myself in Chris' shoes and it was a very good feeling. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of dirty work. I saw a lot of things I didn't really want to see, to put it lightly, but that's all part of the job. And now, I am beating myself up for not doing a summer internship. I am going to have to wait until August. AUGUST! But all I want to do, is get back in the hospital and assist.

Though I am upset I missed my chance for the summer, I am rather happy that I enjoyed my shadowing today. That has to be a good sign. Paging Dr. Agle? Hmmmmm maybe.

Memo

Last night I couldn't sleep.

I was tempted to sneak up stairs and right a really long post, yet call it a 'Memo.' Just like Jerry Maguire in... well, 'Jerry Maguire'. did you know the human head weighs 8 lbs?

However, I didn't. I decided to read half of 'Dear John' instead. Good book my friends, good, good book.

But say I did quietly sneak upstairs, turn the computer on, heat up a cup of herbal tea, put on my glasses and sit down at the computer to write this memo, here's what I think it might say:

Sometimes what I think should go without saying, does in fact need to be said.
Sometime what I think everyone knows, needs to be taught for everyone to learn.
Sometimes what I think I am trying to say, is not in fact what I'm trying to communicate.
But despite all these misunderstandings, I love life. Not misunderstandings so much, but life itself.
At least that's what I tell myself, because I cannot and refuse to ever be a downer.
For example, Yes. I despise the ACT. But also yes, I need the ACT to get into college. It's this Saturday, I'm not excited but I have to do it. So why waste the time and energy moping about it? I don't have to be jumping out of my chair with excitement, but I do need to be the two P's!
Pleasant and Positive! (I just made that one up, do you like it?)
And so help me, that is what I will strive to do. I love you world. So much. And I truly feel that we can work together to make this life of mine and everyone around us, a happy one.

I challenge those reading this memo to do the same. I challenge you to smile through your tears and love through your hatred. Express yourself, but at the same time, respect yourself and the potential you have.

Because believe me. We all have it inside. I know we do.

Little Girls

Yesterday, my dear friends and I had an LGNO. (Little Girls Night Out). We dressed up- supposedly like little girls, and played at the park. It was absurdly fun. I took several pictures and wanted to share them with you. However, posting a ton of pictures on a blog requires lots of scrolling... which is why I've created them into a slide show to one of my all time favorite songs, "Girl Put Your Records On" by Corinne Bailey Rae.

Happy Summer.
