Good afternoon!

     Yesterday was my brother’s 17th birthday. We ha d a taco feast. my brother loves tacos he ate 19 once. I don’t know how you could eat that many in one day. Anyway, it was a lot of fun, lots of laughs, and screams from my niece.  This morning i didn’t have practice so I got to sleep in! My mother and I went on another walk this morning. Today’s topic: my birthday and my mother’s past anniversaries. We also were walking along when a suicide bomber bug smacked my mom in the face. It was pretty funny. 

     I can’t wait for my birthday, every time I walk into my mom and dad’s room there all my presents on top of their dresser. And I only know what one of them is. its driving me crazy! Do you know how when the days go by so fast but when you can’t wait for something they seem to go so slow? (Maybe it’s just me.) Today we get to eat Chinese food. The one thing you need to know about me is that I absolutely LOVE Chinese food. (And egg rolls =) This Saturday for my birthday me and my sister Beca are going to go see the Green Lantern and go get ice cream afterward. I’m excited! Well there isn’t much else to say. Oh, i want you to see this hilarious video here’s the link:

I know its long well the chinese is here bye!!

Hello again!

So this is my first time visiting my blog today and I got 3 views!!!!! I’m so excited!!! lol at least someone is reading my stuff. Or at least glancing at it. But that’s ok maybe I’ll get their attention. So today I went to my swim practice. I was burned out after practice we did two sets of the 100 meter freestyle (down and back down and back) and we did, 50 meter breaststroke, 50 meter backstroke, (Down and back) and we did about 20 flip turns. But anyway, today is my brother’s birthday. He is now 17. (even though he doesn’t act like it) Ok, well most of the time he’s fine and I’m happy to be his sister but sometimes he just drives me crazy. But I still love him =)

After we got home from practice my mom went into “people coming over” mode. (AKA “freak out mode”) She hates it when the house is messy or just a little messy when people are over. I had to clean, do dishes, find things, put stuff away etc. And when people are coming over she also starts getting cranky, especially when she has to cook. Sometimes she will snap at me for no reason. But we haven’t gotten to that stage yet. Anyway, my mom and I are watching my friend’s house/cats while they’re gone in  Chinkatink, VA. And today we found out that there was food in one of their trashcans and my mom opened it and all these fruit flies came out. It was DISGUSTING. Well I have to go get a shower and help my mom cook. Bye!

      Some people ask, Is there a god? i mean where did all this stuff come from? You don’t believe that we exploded from a tiny piece of dust, or evolved from apes. So what else is there? Some people think that God is a fat snobby guy sitting in a chair in heaven laughing at how us humans struggle with our life. If there was a good god, why is there so much evil? Why does he let these things happen to us? Well first of all, what is evil? It’s anything against God, Cheating, lying, stealing, sex, murder, porn etc. So if you want all that to go away, then you and i would go away also. Because we think evil stuff and we lie and cheat and have sex. But you see all good things come from god. He doesn’t tell you to smoke or steal this or look a porn. There’s a voice that tells you, just a little more, one more and that’s it. (AKA Satan) But once is never enough is it? But god sent his ONLY son to die on the cross for our sins. the sins we’ve made and the sins we are going to make and all paid for, by Jesus. For all you parents out there, would you give your daughter or son away to die for someone else? Would you give your family away to die for someone else? Doesn’t that alone show how much God loves us? God has so much grace and love for you (yes YOU) that you can’t even compare to anything. He hates it when we sin, but he still loves us. That doesn’t mean go out and sin all you want God will still love you. i like to say Don’t use God’s love as an excuse to do bad. These earthly pleasures (sex, objects, porn,) they don’t last for long. but God’s love last forever. And it doesn’t run out, his love is always there. How can the world be just out of chance? look at the trees, animals, oceans, people, the sky, all of it is so beautiful and complex, how could it have just exploded and been like that? There’s a god that created you and me not to mention the earth. So to me yes there is a God.
So ask for forgiveness from the guy upstairs, the guy who really matters. God. His arms are open wide, just go.


Hello again,

         So 3 days a week I have to get up a 6:00am for my swim practice and on Saturday I have to get up at 6:00am for my swim meet. I love swimming, but come on, its summer don’t kids have the right to sleep in? But, thankfully I got to sleep 3 extra hours today because I had no practice. YAY! My mom took my 16-year-old brother to drivers ed class.  He’s been going every day for the last week and a half.

        I find one of the hardest things to do in summer is finding something to do. I mean there’s only so many times you can watch TV, play a video game, or play on the computer without getting in trouble with your parents. And plus it gets old pretty fast, maybe it’s just me.  this morning I played a video game (Halo Reach, one of the best games EVER) then my mom got home. After looking EVERYWHERE for my blue iPod I checked my e-mail and then my mom and I went on a walk.

        We talk on our walks, today’s talk was about our “Dysfunctional” family. we aren’t the “normal” family. (I don’t think there really is one.) My sister got pregnant at the age of 17 before she was married. She got married 2 days before 7 pounds 7 ounces Kylie was born. I love my niece, she’s adorable and is now 2 years old. My sister and her husband are loving parents and they love each other. And my 23-year-old brother has been smoking and my dad told me he is now smoking tobacco. And did you know that one in every three people who use tobacco die? I love my brother he’s the best guy in the world but he just hangs around the wrong people. But I’m not saying that I’m in the worst family ever, there a lot of people out there who are in worse situations. But anyway, after our walk my mom went to go get my brother from drivers ed.

      I watched the mighty ducks (love that movie). Then my mom made me help clean the house because my 16-year-old brother is turning 17 this Wednesday. Which is tomorrow. The Wednesday after that is my birthday! I’m so excited. Birthday’s are a big thing in my family. Especially with presents, I bought my brother two bobble heads and a iTunes gift card, and to make it confusing, I put then in a jar and stuffed it with socks. so when my brother shakes it won’t make noise. (Pretty clever, huh?)

      Then I did laundry, cleaned my room and starting putting together a 1000 piece puzzle. Then I went on our computer and here I am writing. And the rest of the day…well the possibilities are endless. =) hope you enjoyed my BORING day.

My name is Alicia Dunk. (Uh leash uh, like Alicia Keys) I’m a 12-year-old girl, (soon to be 13) I live in Maryland and I am home-schooled. I play on a swim team and a basketball team. I’m the youngest in my family and I have 2 older brothers and 2 older sisters. I decided to do a blog for 3 reasons.

1: I thought it would be fun doing a blog. =)

2: It’s something to do in the summer.

3: And just to annoy people with my thoughts. (ok, just kidding =)

But most people would think, “What does  a 12-year-old girl have to say that would be worth anything?” Well first of all I’m almost 13.  I like to think I have a pretty interesting life. Going to the grocery  store can be an adventure! =) kidding.  I just like to think I have a different view on the world than most people. And maybe (if you read my blog) you’ll like it.
