M&M's and typhoid and tye-die

today was long day, but I enjoyed every second :) ...getting a shot, playing with little angel (our teacher´s daughter) all afternoon and it was quite sunny ... and Iwas wearing my tye-died t-shirt (which I made few years ago when I was a "water fairy" during "Fairy tale forest" - one local action for kids :) ...and finally I´ve sent my hair to locks of love...and I gave my teacher all school books then borrowed us for this year :P so it was really long and successful day
good night everybody, I´m off to bed :)

God doesn´t have everything

He never had, and will never have a plan B. All what´s happening here, on the world is His very first plan A which works perfectly and He only knows why he planned this for us.
We have many plans...of course everybody starts with plan A, then B,if something doesn´t work as we imagined, plan C because our situation changed, plan D because we see an unexpected opportunity... and soon we are running out of lettres and wishing that alphabet was longer.
And He only needs one letter, His alphabet could start and end with the very same letter A.
And all what´s happening is His first plan, He doesn´t have to adjust it when some accident occures or when there´s the end of the road. And this brings peace to my heart, knowing that He planned this all, everything has reason, every step leads toward Him.
Our plans are just foolish dreams of kids, His plan is leading hand of loving Father.
And our plans might change but everytime, when you are at plan Z remember it´s just the A for Him and everything´s going well.

some more babbling about medical stuff

my doctor thinks it might be funny to give me one more shot, apparently she enjoys sticking needles to kids (Nick says I´m still just a kid so...let´s pretend it´s true).
and that´s why I´ll get a MENINGOCOCCAL MENINGITIS shot this week and YF+ typhoid later.
I will call it M&M's (short form of meningococcal meningitis shot) because if you tell a kid that the doctor will give you M&M's, day seems to be brighter and world is up side down.
meningococcal meningitis breaks my tongue even if I just try to say it out loud, so the actual disease have to be much more dangerous - that´s why I´m quite happy my doctor suggested this and I´ll get my M&M's without complaining (as a good 19 years old kid).
so this makes my list of medical stuff even longer, but because "safety first" I really can´t say anything.
And how mean is my doctor - every time when she´s about to give me a shot, she asks if I´m right-handed and then she sticks that needle to my left arm -so I can still write at school (no more school for now, but still, I think she´s mean! )

this is for ABBY and for Locks of Love...and all kids of the world, who deserve little joy :)

that was really easy and I feel so much better now :)
The first second, when my friend started to cut my hair, was pretty scary but then I remembered that it´s for good thing and I enjoyed getting my haircut :) so now I´m ready for summer and for hot weather in Kenya (it won´t be so hot there, as it will be Winter in africa but... :D )

few more photos:

anybody wants to cut my hair?

this summer will be really hot - as I´ll spend it in Kenya :)
and my hair is quite long now and so I´ll have to cut it before I go (because it´s really annoying now - it gets stuck in the shoulder strap of my school bag, it´s literally everywhere and I NEED change...)
and then I realised that if I´m going to cut my hair now, I can use it for some good thing...at first I only wanted to cut few inches but now I changed my mind...
10 inches will go away...far far away actually - all the way to some little princess...

I´m going to DONATE my hair because:
-it´s long enough to make someone happier
-I don´t really need it
-it will help someone who´s fighting for life

you can do it too - get some nice short haircut for summer and make someone´s life a fairy tale :)

What a honor it will be for me, to know that some little knight or sweet little fairy are smiling because of me :)
I´m sharing this on my "Living Big" blog because I think it´s important part of my "WORLD CHANGING" ... sharing my happiness with the others and helping kids to live their dreams - that´s all what matters :)
I´m writing this whole blog, in hope that it might inspire someone and I thought this is worth sharing as well :)

almost ready

so my backpack arrived yesterday! it´s here and I call him Evan (that wasn´t my idea -giving a name to it but... :)
Evan - because I love the meaning :
It is of Welsh origin. Variant of a Gaelic name anglicised as John (Hebrew) "the Lord is gracious". In Celtic, the name means "young warrior". In Welsh, it means "God is Good". It is also used as a short form of Evangelos, which means "good messenger" in Greek. In Hebrew, Evan means "rock".

here´s the picture of me with Evan - I payed for it myself (with money I earned last summer) so it´s completly mine :)

and it´s gorgeous - all the pockets and straps and zippers and velcro everywhere :) and I will take it as "carry on board" backpack so I can start thinking about the way how to pack it :)
+ ouch next week is another round of my hepatitis vaccination - if you don´t like needles don´t look because I´m planning to take a picture of the shot :D
