    Is Darlene your middle name? It’s pretty. 🙂

    That’s funny that you get along with those age groups the best. I’m in the middle of my friend group going by age, since I have friends from the ages of twelve to sixteen, basically. My closest friend is sixteen, and we hang out a lot, but also just talk about stuff. That’s another thing I find funny. I have all of my friends, but I’m closer to…[Read more]

    Ya, that’s funny about the root beer though. Lol. Hey, I’m only two years older than you. 🙂 (For a minute I thought I was only one year older, but then I remembered I turned 15 in May. I’m so used to being 14, that this year I find myself telling people I’m 14 instead of 15. Lol. It’s the first year I’ve had that problem, and I think it’s because…[Read more]

    That’s awesome that you live so close to the water! We used to have a log house that my dad made right by the water, but then we moved from that town to the one we’re in now. Ya, it can be annoying doing stuff like swimming with younger kids. We fostered for many years, so I’m used to having kids around, (especially toddlers and babies)…[Read more]

  • This is amazing! I could almost feel what it would be like for her, not because I’m ever gonna be a queen someday, 😉 but because there are times in life when we are forced to leave our innocence and freedom behind forever.

    Oh, are you on Duolingo? It’s a language learning app you can get for your phone, and I’m on there learning Spanish. I started only in the past month, but I LOVE IT!!!!! I do it for fun, actually. 😉

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 1 week, 1 day ago

    It’s funny that you mention the root beer, because when I looked at the picture, I was a little taken by surprise when I saw it. 😉 Lol. I thought it was beer, but I was like, well, it’s not a SIN to drink beer. 😛

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 1 week, 1 day ago

    Ya, fostering is one of the dreams I want to do when I’m older. In other words, when I have my own family. Not like I’m gonna foster after High School when I’m working to make money and still living with my parents. Lol. 😉 😛

    Glad you like the name. 🙂 When I was bemoaning the fact that I didn’t have a cool name to publish with if I ever wrote a…[Read more]

    • Yeah, it would be fun!
      Yeah, I think it’s pretty!

    • Haha yeah! I only said it bc I’m only 13 XD! But yeah I agree lol!
      I’m not, but I think my older brother is!

  • @arindown

    I’ve been to Michigan Lake a couple times, and it’s a ton of fun! Do you live close enough to swim in it? My favourite part was jumping over the huge waves that would sweep over the shore. 🙂 Fun memories.

    Ya, hockey is the best sport ever invented, in my not-so-humble opinion. Lol. 😉 I started skating when I was really little, so you…[Read more]

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 1 week, 1 day ago

    Ya, kids are a lot of work to watch, and toddlers even more! My family fostered for many years, so I have a lot of experience with kids, and especially toddlers and babies. XP

    Oh, no I didn’t change my last name. 😉 I just decided it might not be the best thing in the world for everyone on here to see what my name is, so I changed it to my middle…[Read more]

    • Yeah. Oh, fun! That’s what I wanna do lol!
      Oh okay lol! I like it!
      Haha yeah, no that’s me lol! And…..that’s root beer, not beer! XD

    Oh, who’s in your profile picture? You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to, just was curious when I saw it.

  • Olivia Catherine posted a new activity comment 1 week, 2 days ago

    Lol, ya, I know! xP As much as I would expect not being busy with summer here and COVID to add to it, I’ve been doing so much stuff lately that when I get one day that nothing is planned, I’m relieved! lol. Bit of an exaggeration, but mostly true, since I help my parents in the garden they have (a market garden) and I mow people’s yards with my…[Read more]

    • Hey!
      That sounds fun! Haha same! We had the two babies over yesterday! (my two nephews) and…it’s a lot of work watching two toddlers lol!! I joined YWW which is super nice! So I’ve been trying to get as much as I can out of it! haha
      Did you change your last name?
      Oh haha it’s me in my profile pic lol!

  • @arindown

    That is awesome!!!!!! Almost everyone on here says they are from the States, and it’s super cool that you’re from Canada as well, but also Northern Ontario!!!!

    I won’t say what town I live in, but it’s like, way up north. Everyone I tell about it is like “Where in the world is that?!?” It’s north of Thunder Bay, and it’s a mining town.…[Read more]

  • @kristianne-hassman

    Oh, it’s totally fine. Doesn’t matter when or if you guys read it, just thought it might bring some laughs. 😉 But yes, I think I’m gonna share another of my stories here soon.

  • @mayajoelle Ya, I really want to go to Germany, and we have some German roots in our family, along with Swiss. But I just love the accent!

    Yes, I want to go to Spain someday, though my friend also wants to go to Mexico, which would also be fun. 🙂 Our family travels quite a bit, but mostly just from where we live here in Canada to Ohio for…[Read more]

  • @mayajoelle, that’s cool that you were trying to learn Welsh. Sounds really cool. 🙂 I used to really want to learn German, (though I’m not exactly sure why) but I sorta gave up on that because I’m not even sure who I’d speak it with. I do sorta want to go to Germany still, though, so I might learn some of it on Duolingo, or at least just try it…[Read more]

  • @mayajoelle, hola, amiga!

    No, I’m not Spanish at all, I’m just using an iPhone app to learn the language, and it’s really fun. 🙂 It’s called Duolingo. Do you have it, by any chance? Anyway… lol

    My name is Olivia, as you can see. When I read your introduction of yourself, I had to smile, because I didn’t really get more serious about writing…[Read more]
