this is what's been up

Yo. I'm gonna try this blogging thing again. For real. I mean it this time. I'm going to do my best to write a real post about my life, with pictures and everything. Here goes.

Okay, I actually have no idea where to begin. I mean, school's been keeping me busy, of course. You know, learning and all that nonsense. So have college apps, but we're not going to talk about that. I'm not going to talk about it until I get in somewhere. That's my official position. Bye.

There was homecoming last month. The dance itself was suitably fun in its lameness, but the best parts were, as always, getting dressed up and then going to Kerbey Lane afterwards for midnight pancakes and enchiladas.

Then there's cross-country. Yesterday we had our district meet. In terms of time, I didn't do as well as I'd hoped considering it was my last meet ever, but girls varsity got 3rd place anyway so I'm pretty pleased with that. (Boys completely dominated, of course, but what else is new?) Afterwards we all got lunch and ice cream and then went to a park. It was a fun day and I'm glad the season ended on a high note. It was kind of a weird season since our coach was out having a baby and the replacement didn't, uh, know anything about running, but it was still good, yesterday especially. I'm sure I'll miss it later, but I've gotta say, right now, it's gonna feel so good sleeping past 5:15. So good. And there's always track to look forward to, anyway. 

In other news, it rained a ton last week and today I think was the first day it was really sunny, albeit cold. I mean, I guess it's that time of year. I'm just still in the shorts-wearing mindset (when am I not, honestly) so it's kind of distressing. But kind of nice. It makes me excited for Christmas. I'm sorry.

Maybe it's the weather, but I'm finally not missing the summer anymore. While I love the craziness of being social that comes with going back to school, I think I love lazy fall weekends even more. Reading in bed while it rains and watching football on the couch and whatever else -- it's nice to just relax when I can. I've been taking a lot of naps lately -- it's how I survive without drinking coffee, I think. Naps are the best thing to come out of senior year so far. Sleep, when it's so hard to come by, is precious. I went to bed at 9:15 on a Friday night last night, for instance. This is the life.

So yeah, I'm liking fall alright, even if I haven't been able to appreciate it fully yet. Bring on the pumpkins. Let's do this thing.

*All photos taken from Facebook, creds to different people's parents. I haven't touched my camera since I got home from Seattle. What can you do?


  1. Great little update Kendall. :) You're doing well.

    p.s come to Australia is you are worried about never wearing shorts again until july; it is summer here!! (Or rather it is supposed to be spring but it is really summer with a few of springs quirks and qualities...that's how seasons work here. )

  2. your friend in the blue dress is so pretty! you look pretty too!

  3. Kendall,
    This blog is so absolutely perfect. Your writing is seamless and your pictures are flawless. Might I ask, what camera do you use? I love taking pictures but most of the time I just end up taking them with my iPhone. I'm really interested in getting an actual camera for my photography. Any recommendations?

    Great blog again :) Feel free to check out my blog anytime:

    1. Thank you! I'm probably not the best person to ask about photography since I haven't picked up my camera since August, but I have a Canon Rebel XS. I got it several years ago, so don't think they still make it, but you can probably find a similar one. It was just the cheapest DSLR they had. Hope this helps!

    2. Also, I forgot to add, I primarily use a 50mm lens, which makes all the difference in the world (as opposed to the standard zoom lens most cameras come with). Different lenses are good investments because they have a lot of impact on the aperture, as well as on how close or far away you'll be able to get.


Hey, you. Be nice.
