Hmm........I was reading over my last entry, and I was thinking: What the heck am I TYPING?!?!? This so isn't what I would say if I was talking to my friends or parents.....I am just a regular busy, stressed, average thirteen (soon to be fourteen) girl. I think I might have given the wrong impression. Anyways here are some facts about me:

1) My name is Rose Marie, and I am 13 years old. I live in the faraway land of Pennsylvania, where the Amish roam. It can get very boring here.

2) I have been taking acting lessons for 7 years, and I adore performing. I have been taking private voice for 2 years, and dance for 3 years. I am also (maybe) going to start tennis this fall. I used to play soccer, but I don't have time for it this year. I am also (unfortunately) taking piano which I am horrible at.

3) I have a sister named Shelly who is 23 years old..........she is engaged to a dull, balding guy named Chad who's a year older than her.

4) I hate starts in a week.

Well, that's all I can think of...........haha, I am so boring. Anyways, I will write later.
My first entry. Some of you may be wondering about the title of this blog: a tree by my window? Wow, this girl must have some really poetic and spiritual meaning behind this title. Wrong. You see, all of the good titles that I wanted were, in exasperation, I frantically looked around my room. What is a good title? I wondered to myself...........then, finally, my eyes settled on the window next to my desk. A tall oak tree stands there, it's branches swaying in the morning breeze. Huh. The Tree By My Window. It's been there as long as I can remember, yet, I never really pay it any attention. I typed in the title, and sent it. Sucess. Okay, okay......enough rambling. I guess there really is a spirtual and poetic meaning behind this.....and it is to recognize the small things in life......they are often the most beautiful.
