Monster Sky

Hey, everyone! I got inspired by a dark thunderstorm cloud ( also known as cumulonimbus or thunderheads) up against a big (fir or pine) tree back in August 2018 to write a story about it. Here are some related blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2015/06/05/latest-weather-thunderstorms/http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/02/11/how-the-sun-came-to-be/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2016/07/20/a-happy-world/. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

One day years ago, the Cloud King said in a powerful voice, “Have you finished pouring water down into the world yet?” And the Water Fairy said scared, “Almost, Your Cloudiness.”

The Cloud King laughed a loud, mighty, politely and said, “Relax! I’m not mad. I think the world is definitely getting tired of rain though. I do understand that you’re a water fairy and that’s what you’re meant to do.”

The Water Fairy said with a sigh of relief, “Thank you, Your Cloudiness! You have no idea what this means to me. Yes, I agree that the world is getting tired of rain but the world needs some kind of water too though. ” “Well, you could create lakes, rivers, puddles, and more for water”, said the Cloud King as he scratched his chin thoughtfully.

“Thank you, Your Cloudiness!” And so all was well or so they thought. Many years later, The Cloud King rumbled loudly and said, “Who took my lightning lamp?” The Lightning Fairy said scared, “I don’t know, Your Cloudiness! I thought I put the lightning lamp on your cloud.”

The Cloud King rumbled with anger and said, “Go find my lightning lamp now or I’ll make a violent storm!” So the poor Lightning Fairy went to search for the lightning lamp.

On the way, the Lightning Fairy flew into the Water Fairy (who was much older now) and so the Lightning Fairy said, “Hello, Aqua (the Water Fairy’s real name)! Have you by any chance seen a lightning lamp over this way?”

“No, sorry I haven’t. I’ll keep my eye out for the Cloud King’s lightning lamp, Summer (the Lightning Fairy’s real name) though.”, said the Water Fairy sympathetically. “Thank you, Aqua. I’m on my way to see Misty (the Cloud Fairy’s full name) and Raine (the Rain Fairy’s real name). “, said the Lightning Fairy longingly.

Meanwhile, the Cloud King couldn’t wait any longer and cursed the world by shouting, “Make a violent storm with loud sound and blinding light.” Almost immediately after he said that, thunder echoed on the Earth below as well as lightning striking the sky.

The rain came pouring down with the speed of light on Earth. Back at the Cloud Fairy’s home, the Lightning Fairy talked with the Cloud Fairy. “I’m sorry but I haven’t seen my father’s Cloud King’s lightning lamp, Aqua. Did you hear my father Cloud King cursed the world with a violent storm? Also, have you seen Raine yet?”, said the Cloud Fairy pitifully.

“Why, no! I didn’t know that, Misty. Thanks for telling me. No, that’s where I’m off to next. I guess I better hurry if I want to make to Raine’s home though. Goodbye, Misty!”, said the Water Fairy shocked and determined as she left.

Back at the Cloud King’s palace, the Cloud King was surprised at what he had just done to the Earth below. Sadly, there wasn’t anything he could do about it until he had the lightning lamp back.

Meanwhile, the Water Fairy had just arrived at the Rain Fairy’s home. The Water Fairy gently knocked on the door and a few seconds later the Rain Fairy opened the door. “Hey there, Aqua! I knew you were coming to look for something”, said the Rain Fairy calmly.

“Hey, Raine. You did, how so?”, said the Water Fairy quizzically. The Rain Fairy chuckled and explained, “You see, I borrowed the Lightning Lamp for one of my rain experiments but I see that the Cloud King beat me to it.”

“Oh, well. Are you done with the lightning lamp? I want to get the Lightning Lamp to the Cloud King right away”, asked the Water Fairy patiently. “Yes, I finished long ago with the experiment”, said the Rain Fairy as she gently gave the Water Fairy the Lightning Lamp.

The Water Fairy said, “Thank you so much!” as she left the Rain Fairy’s home and flew towards the Cloud King’s palace. Fortunately, he was asleep so she put the Lightning Lamp on the cloud as she left it previously.

The very next day, The Cloud King woke up to the Lightning Lamp sitting on the cloud like nothing ever happened. He gave a cry of joy having found it. Unfortunately, it was broken but the King decided to keep the storm and he had the power to control the violent storm.

After that, he gathered the Water Fairy; the Rain Fairy, the Lightning Fairy, and the Cloud Fairy together and announced that he found the Lightning Lamp. The fairies smiled knowingly and burst in celebration.

And everything worked out perfectly. Now the violent storm you have read about in the story is a thunderstorm, so if you ever experience a thunderstorm think of this story.

Sunset or sunrise clouds.

Pretty sunset clouds!

Fundraising for the 2019 Chromosome 18 Family Conference – Poem Creativity


(This is our group photo from the 2018 Conference in Baltimore)

Hey, everyone! For this year’s fundraising efforts for my family to attend the Chromosome 18 Conference in Colorado Springs, I decided to make customized poems. Here’s some information on the poems:

The poems will be nature themed, fairy themed, mermaid themed, or unicorn themed. Every poem created will be different and uniquely yours! You can get a decorative border around the poem, incorporating recycled materials; or just the poem emailed to you.

Now, here’s some information on what the Chromosome 18 annual conference means to me:

The Chromosome 18 conference means a lot to me because I get to meet new friends and spend time with old friends. It also means a lot to me because I get to travel to a new city with my family.

Me with Rebecca

Macy and me.

The Chromosome 18 conference helps me get over my fears and my emotions. It helps me feel brave, courageous, and enjoyable. Here’s an example: In July 2017, when my family and I were inside the airport, I was fearful, nervous, tired, and afraid; yet, the view I got from the airplane was amazing and it was all worth it.

I want to check out the swimming pool and have fun with new and old friends. I also want to explore the city if the weather and temperature are good. I also want to check out new restaurants.

Here’s a poem as an example:

Butterflies dash and play
Within the golden sunbeams
Dancing in the afternoon sky.

Butterflies fly in the sky like a colorful moving rainbow
Glimmering in the sky.
The sky sparkling like water.

Butterflies dance freely along
the water.
Water sways as it’s greeting the butterflies.

Poems Of Nature

Hey, everyone! As you know, March 21st is World Poetry Day. I’ve decided to write a poem and add a poem from last year and this year to celebrate. Here are some related blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2016/10/17/lillians-triple-poems/http://lilliandarnell.com/2014/03/13/easter-poems/,  http://lilliandarnell.com/2014/03/12/what-am-i-poems/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/21/fun-poem-extravaganza/. I hope you enjoy!

Here’s the first poem I wrote March 21st, 2018:

A flower blooms in
the midst of winter
knowingly lasting

Forever running in
a sea of white
as the sun shines.

As its golden petals laid its petals
softly to its soft comfy bed as
it rests in winter.

Here’s the second poem that I wrote in March 21st, 2017:

Birds dance in the breeze like ballet dancers
Flowers flow from trees like a waterfall
Trees dance in the sea of grass

Here’s the third poem that I wrote today:

Flowers shine bright

through the gloomy winter

Into the glorious spring weather.

Flowers flow like a sparkling river

Through the snow and rain

As a welcoming robin ready to mate.

Flowers dance gracefully in the windy day

Of gloom and sunshine

Flowers thankfully drink water

from it’s thirsty roots.

Here’s the fourth poem that I wrote today:

Butterflies are dancing

In the ocean blue sky

Like a hummingbird floating

In an ocean

Of flowers dancing to water

And wind.

Here’s the final poem also from March 21st, 2018:

Water is a land
of freedom

Freedom is a gift
of emotion and pride.

While pride is a sea
full of joy.

Emotion is an ocean
full of joy and happiness
with anger and sad falling behind it

As water waves
like a sea of freedom
knowing its beauty awaits.

That’s the end of Poems Of Nature. I hope you enjoyed!

Annual Chromosome 18 Conference 2018 Part 7

Hey, everyone! I just got back from a trip to Baltimore for the annual Chromosome 18 conference. This blog post is a summary of what I did at the Chromosome 18p- conference this year. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. In case you’re wondering, the links are Thomas’, Camilla’s, and Chromosome 18’s website.

Here are some similar blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/15/my-adventure-to-surprise-part-1/ and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/09/13/annual-chromosome-18p-conference-2017/. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

July 5th: 

I woke up with my leg feeling sore from dancing hard the previous night. Anyway, I got dressed and ate breakfast and got ready to go for a walk around the Riverwalk. Camilla, Thomas, and I walked for about 30 minutes.

Afterward, we came back hot, hungry, and sweaty. So we ate lunch and eventually went down to the lobby. In the lobby, we waited until 3:50 pm for a Lyft driver to take us back to the airport.

At the airport, I was bored so I Facebook Messaged Macy while I was waiting to pre-board the plane with Camilla and Thomas. Right at 6:00 pm, we took off for McCarran International Airport.

During that flight, I wrote a story called A Brave Girl. (Click on the link to read the story). Anyway, I had Fritos, juice, and water on the flight. I also played games, read books, looked out the window, and took pictures.

On the way there, I saw tons of halos around the sun and a magnificent Nevada/Arizona sunset which was amazing welcoming us to Nevada. I walked around without holding Camilla’s hand.

I even went to the public restrooms all by myself.

Anyway, at 8:30 pm, we had plenty of time to wait so we took our time this time. When we finally sat down, I Facebook Messaged Patty and Macy letting them know we made it to Las Vegas.

At 11:00 pm, we preboarded the plane again. The plane was an old Southwest Airline plane. Once we took off, I was tired but didn’t go to sleep. Before I knew it, it was 11:50 pm and we were hovering over Reno.

At midnight, we got off the plane very tired. The airport was surprisingly very quiet and empty.

I even managed to walk through the whole airport without holding Camilla’s hand. Anyway, we made our way back to our car. Once we got some things unpacked, we all got ready for bed.

That is the end of our enjoyable adventure.

Gorgeous Flowers.

Pretty pink flowers.

Amazing flowers!

Along the riverwalk.

A Brave Girl

Hey, everyone! I wrote this story on July 5th inspired by a daydream I had for a year. The character’s name is based on Macy Miller (a close 18p- friend of mine). I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, there lived a young girl named Macy Helens who was afraid to fly on an airplane. One day though, her parents who were named Hannah and William announced that they were going on a family vacation but they needed to take an airplane to their destination.

Hannah had made a smart decision to use this vacation to help Macy get over her fears of flying. So Macy was scared but she knew she had to overcome her fears eventually. So Macy agreed to go. They left the next morning.

First, they went through TFA (The Fairy Association which is similar to TSA) and Macy wasn’t even scared but she was proud of herself. Macy handled the searching for a gate number, waiting, and the walking quite easily. The hardest thing was getting on the plane but she told herself not to look down.

It worked perfectly. Once they were about to take off, Macy was afraid of the steep incline that what she did was look out the window for familiar sights. Macy saw circular rainbows, a beautiful sunset, and a gorgeous sunrise as well. She was very impressed. Finally, their flight landed and Macy was very happy and proud.

Annual Chromosome 18 Conference 2018 Part 6

Hey, everyone! I just got back from a trip to Baltimore for the annual Chromosome 18 conference. This blog post is a summary of what I did at the Chromosome 18p- conference this year. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. In case you’re wondering, the links are Thomas’, Camilla’s, and Chromosome 18’s website.

Here are some similar blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/15/my-adventure-to-surprise-part-1/ and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/09/13/annual-chromosome-18p-conference-2017/. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

July 4th (known as 4th of July): 

I woke up at 9:00 am. Macy was hanging around on the 9th floor and when Camilla and Thomas were out of the room, I let Macy in. Anyway, Macy left at 9:30 am to go down to the 5th floor and again I took my time getting ready to go down to the 5th floor.

I went down at 11:00 am so I could hang out down there. At 11:30 am, the self-advocates went to lunch (I knew there was live music so I didn’t go). They got back at 1:30 pm.

So I went up and down until it was time for group pictures. It was pretty fun to do. Anyway, after the photos were taken I went up to my hotel room to get ready for the dinner and dance.

At 5:25 pm, I arrived at Macy’s door and she let me in. We talked in the hotel room for a little bit. At 5:48 pm though, we walked around the halls until 6:10 pm which is when we agreed to go down. At 6:00 pm, we found Katie and then we found Camilla.

Shortly Katie showed us the table my friends were sitting at. We both sat down and waited for our food to come. Once my food came, I ate most of it. Anyway, the music started when I was eating my chicken.

I went out to the dance floor the moment the song Let It Go came on. We sang along to it. Eventually, Macy joined the dance floor and we danced together. Around 9:15 pm, we went into the firework viewing room to watch a few fireworks.

At 9:30 pm, the real fireworks started. It lasted until 9:50 pm. Macy had to go to the public restroom afterward but there was a long line. So we made the decision to go up to Macy’s room so she could go to the restroom.

At 10:13 pm, we ran all the way to the elevators. We made it to the 5th floor at 11:10 pm when the last 2 songs were played. Here are some of the songs I danced to are  Y.M.C.A, Let It Go, and We Are Family. Anyway, after the last song ended we hung around talking and saying see you again soon before Macy and her family left.

We left shortly after that. I went up to the hotel room and got ready for bed. I went to sleep at 1:00 am.

Annual Chromosome 18 Conference 2018 Part 5

Hey, everyone! I just got back from a trip to Baltimore for the annual Chromosome 18 conference. This blog post is a summary of what I did at the Chromosome 18p- conference this year. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. In case you’re wondering, the links are Thomas’, Camilla’s, and Chromosome 18’s website.

Here are some similar blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/15/my-adventure-to-surprise-part-1/ and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/09/13/annual-chromosome-18p-conference-2017/. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

July 3rd: 

I woke up at 8:25 am. Again Camilla called room service so she could order breakfast shortly after I woke up. At 9:23 am, Macy was outside my hotel room. Anyway, I let her in and I had already started getting ready to go down to the 5th floor.

So I finished getting ready quickly. Instead of going to the 5th floor though, we explored the hotel floors again. Eventually, Macy and I went into her hotel room and we hung out in her room there.

We sang a couple of songs from Youtube (luckily my throat wasn’t dry) before deciding to go down to the 5th floor. At 11:30 am, I went with Macy and Katie to listen to the pre-self-advocate panel in a certain room.

The pre-self-advocate-advocate panel was finished at 11:45 am for lunch. Macy’s parents weren’t out of a session yet so she asked if she could sit with me for lunch. I was perfectly fine with that.

I ate most of my lunch while waiting for Macy to get her water. I ate my dessert while waiting for Macy to get her dessert. After we both finished eating lunch, we went back up to Macy’s hotel room for a few minutes before heading back down to the 5th floor.

Macy and I hung out with Katie, Kaylyn Earl (an 18p- friend), Rebecca, Irene Mckay (an 18p- friend I’ve known), and Remy before my friends had to go to the certain room. Also, Macy and I got our photo taken as well. At 2:15 pm, Macy came out to take a break and I hung out before Macy and Rebecca had to go back to the certain room.

I went up to the room again until 3:00 pm when I went back down to the 5th floor. At 3:10 pm, Macy came out and we hung around the 5th-floor talking and giggling (or laughing, whichever you want to call it).

At 5:00 pm, I went down to the lobby with Macy to see Macy off for Self Advocate Dinner (didn’t go since it wasn’t my type of food). At 7:28 pm, Macy messaged me through Facebook Messenger saying she was on the 5th floor.

So I headed back down to the 5th floor right away. After that, we went up to my hotel room to hang out and talk until 9:50 pm. I decided to go down with her to right outside her hotel room and then I went up alone thinking and daydreaming (at night while awake).

Then I got ready for bed and went to sleep late that night wondering what would happen tomorrow. I was excited that the next day was the 4th of July. I went to sleep happy but tired.

Me and My friends

Annual Chromosome 18 Conference 2018 Part 4

Hey, everyone! I just got back from a trip to Baltimore for the annual Chromosome 18 conference. This blog post is a summary of what I did at the Chromosome 18p- conference this year. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. In case you’re wondering, the links are Thomas’, Camilla’s, and Chromosome 18’s website.

July 2nd: 

I woke up at 8:35 am. In just over a minute, Macy came up with Camilla. So I finished eating breakfast, put on clothes, and put the stuff back in my bag. The final thing I did was put on the name tag.

Macy asked if I wanted to explore the hallways of almost every floor of the hotel. Unfortunately, we ran out of time because Macy needed to be in a certain room at 11:00 am.

So we headed back to the 5th floor so Macy could go to the public restrooms around 10:50 am. Once Macy was in the certain room, I sat down for a minute before heading back up to the room. I came right back down at 11:10 am and we continued to explore the hallways where we left off.

At 11:30 am, we went back to the 5th floor. Once Macy was back in that certain room, I sat for about 5 minutes before going back up again. It wasn’t until 11:50 am that I went back down again.

At 11:30 am, I got stuck in line for lunch but managed to get out of line once Camilla got there. I wanted to sit with Macy but I couldn’t find her so I got out of the sunny area so I could not overheat. During that time, I Facebook Messaged Macy to see if she had finished eating.

Apparently, she was just finishing eating her cookie. So I waited and by 1:00 pm Macy found me with Camilla. So we decided to go up to both Macy’s hotel room and my hotel room.

Eventually, we went back to the 5th floor again. At 1:30 pm, Macy went back to the certain room. So I went up to the room again, I kept coming down though. At 3:00 pm, Macy snuck out of the certain room because it was too loud so we continued exploring the hotel floors.

At 3:30 pm, Macy went back to a certain room and I stayed down there until Macy came out at 3:45 pm and explored a floor until 4:15 pm when we went down to the lobby.

I had enough time to get my sunglasses and go back down to the lobby. So then I waited with other friends beside Macy. At 5:00 pm, we walked over to the Cheesecake Factory as a group.

Once the leader of this group announced we should be split into 9 groups. Macy and I offered to be in the nicest group.  The only thing was all of us didn’t want to wait. So we went to Build-A-Bear Workshop (don’t really care for the place) to wait. We walked back at 6; 00 pm and sat in 6 booths.

So we ordered dinner and I ordered apple juice, water, and french fries with some help from my friends. Some of my friends ordered dessert but I didn’t since I was full. Anyway, one of my friends helped with the math.

Once we got back, we all went up to our rooms so we could put our leftovers away. So once I went up to the room, I texted Camilla to see where she was. She said she was at the pool with Thomas.

So I went down to the pool to talk to Camilla. Anyway, I checked with Macy to see if she would go swimming. She was thinking about going swimming. She said she was getting her swimsuit on so I went up to the room to get mine on.

I came straight back down to go to the pool. I got in but it was too cold for me and for Macy it was too loud. I also tried the jacuzzi but the jacuzzi was too hot. So Macy went to bed and I went down to the lobby to see if there was any action happening down there.

I also stopped by the 5th floor to see if anyone was down there but there wasn’t so I went back up. I took a bath and got ready for bed. I went to sleep at 1:00 am exactly.

Annual Chromosome 18 Conference Part 3

Hey, everyone! I just got back from a trip to Baltimore for the annual Chromosome 18 conference. This blog post is a summary of what I did at the Chromosome 18p- conference this year. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. In case you’re wondering, the links are Thomas’, Camilla’s, and Chromosome 18’s website.

Here are some similar blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/15/my-adventure-to-surprise-part-1/ and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/09/13/annual-chromosome-18p-conference-2017/. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

July 1st: 

I woke up at 8:30 am but again I took my time getting up and get ready to go down to the lobby. Camilla was in the room getting ready to call room service to order breakfast when I woke up.

It wasn’t until 9:00 am that I went down to the lobby. I went up and down a lot in the elevator.

At 9:50 am, I saw Rebecca walk in. My grandmother Patty started doing a Facebook Video Chat with me so that Rebecca met Patty virtually since my grandparents are considering going to the conference next year.

Shortly after that, I went up to go to the restroom. I went up at 12:15 pm to grab a fruit bar to hold my stomach in. Anyway, I grabbed a sip of water and made it back down at 12:30 pm. At 12:30 pm, I was chatting with Macy through Facebook Messenger.

At 1:00 pm, Thomas and Camilla came back from outside bringing french fries from Dick’s (a restaurant) with them. That was my lunch. At 1:30 pm, I went back up. At 2:30 pm, I went up to the 5th floor to get my name tag and I hung out there. Before I went to get my name tag, I ran into Katie.

I was actually up in the room fixing my bag when I got a Facebook message on Facebook Messenger from Macy saying that they were at the hotel. So I finished doing what I was doing and let Macy know that I was heading down.

I ran as fast as my legs could take me to the elevators. Unfortunately, the elevator had a couple of people getting on slowing it down a bit but luckily they were all getting off at the 5th floor (they were part of the conference too).

Once I got down to the lobby, I calmly walked over to the spot I sat in that morning and let Macy know I was there. She turned around and saw me. She walked over and talked to me. Shortly after that, Macy went to the elevator area with her family.

The elevator was slow coming down so I was able to sneak into the elevator with them. It was a little squished in there but we thought that was funny (I normally wouldn’t like that).

After I went up to the room to rest, I headed back down to the 5th floor knowing that Macy would be down there soon. She Facebook Messaged me asking where I was. Anyway, I got down there and saw Macy standing at the entrance of the registry’s chosen room to get name tags.

I stood next to her while Macy waited for her parents. I was able to choose 2 spots where I could watch her move along. Eventually, she came over to talk to me again. I showed her where the public restrooms were. I decided to come along to see what the bathroom was like.

Anyway, I patiently waited for Macy to be done. After Macy and her family decided to go up the elevator and once again I was able to get on the same elevator as them. So I started to eat some leftover french fries for dinner when Macy Facebook Messaged me.

Macy was asking if our family wanted to go out to eat with their family. I wasn’t sure so I asked Macy what restaurant they were going to. Macy said Blaze Pizza in Facebook Messenger.

I looked it up to see how far away it was from the hotel. I figured it would be okay to go I asked where we needed to meet up at through Facebook Messenger. So, we got ready and went down to the lobby to meet up with them.

So we walked to the restaurant together. We ordered first while Macy and her family ordered last. Since there was a long booth, I decided to sit there and there was enough space for us to sit together.

Anyway, we left at 7;00 pm with Macy. We went up together to go to our hotel rooms. Once I put away my sunglasses, I went down to the social and met up with Macy there. After some time, Macy and I got bored so we went up the elevators to show each other where our rooms were.

Shortly after heading back down with Macy, we chatted with new friends and old friends until 10:30 pm when we were both so exhausted that we all went up to our hotel rooms for the night. Again I tried to go to sleep early but I winded up going to sleep at 1:00 am again. That night I went to sleep feeling blessed, relaxed, and relieved from stress and pain.

Annual Chromosome 18 Conference Part 2

Hey, everyone! I just got back from a trip to Baltimore for the annual Chromosome 18 conference. This blog post is a summary of what I did at the Chromosome 18p- conference this year. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. In case you’re wondering, the links are Thomas’, Camilla’s, and Chromosome 18’s website.

Here are some similar blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/15/my-adventure-to-surprise-part-1/ and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/09/13/annual-chromosome-18p-conference-2017/. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

June 30th: 

I woke up at 8:30 am the next morning to plug up my electronics. After I did that, I fell back to sleep until 10:00 am or 11:00 am. Once I woke up again, I felt much more relaxed and relieved.

So I took my time eating breakfast, getting dressed, and eating candy (it was Candy Day). After I finished eating my candy, I went to the elevator area to head down to the lobby.

So I waited for the elevator to come. I got down there at 11:30 am and I stayed down until 11:40 am when I started to get hungry. I ran into a lot of my 18 p and q friends as well. So I headed back to the elevators to head to the room, I ate a fruit bar and grabbed a sip of water as well in the room.

The elevators had funky music playing and had blue lights on. It took some getting used to that. Anyway, the elevators were interesting. You could actually hear the robotic voice of the elevator on a different floor and you could hear the elevator stopping at your floor before it even opened.

Once again, I headed back down on the elevators. I got back down there exactly at 11:50 am and I chose a good spot to sit where I could greet my friends. Camilla came and gave me french fries.

After I finished eating lunch, I chatted with Macy through Facebook Video Chat. I took a selfie right there too as well. I went up to the room again at 5:00 pm to eat dinner and decided to check out the 5th floor early so I was comfortable with where everything was.

After that, I went to the 7th floor to take a sneak peak of the pool. When I finished, I went up to the room to get ready for bed and finish chatting with Macy for the night.

Around 12:30 am, I fell asleep as I knew that Sunday would come more quickly if I went to sleep earlier.

A selfie of me.
