Out of the Box

Getting creative with Christianity, crafting, cooking, copious usage of alliteration, and the rest of my life

About June 2, 2010

Hi there! I’m Grace. I started this blog to chronicle my adventures in Toronto, Ontario, Canada during summer 2010. I attend a residential school created for geeks like me. I pretend to be a health nut, but that only extends to what I cook (and then only sometimes). I would love to garden, but have yet to overcome my black thumb. Half of what I try to do doesn’t work because I don’t follow instructions when I should. I love foreign languages and linguistics. I bhangra (or try to). Theater is awesome, and performing is the best part. I procrastinate… a lot. Even if I’m hiding out in my room 24/7, I’m not trying to be reclusive… really. I enjoy sleeping. I can sometimes draw something decent. I love music and wish I were better at any instrument. Knitting is a lot of fun. I love reading about subjects that interest me, so my head is full of theory that I often have trouble figuring out how to apply to real life. I’m a rebel at heart and do things unconventionally when I can. As a Christian, I am probably less conservative than I should be, the slightest hint of legalism sends me into rant mode, I emphasize the love part, I sometimes try to look into semantics with next to no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew, and I’m always trying to understand more. Here, also, I fall into the trap of being too intellectual and not practical enough – lots of theory, lack of application. I’d probably do a better job of it if I were less self-centered and more self-motivated. And life is life.

Oh, and as you might have guessed from that paragraph of rambling – I’m not very organized. 😉

    haha Grace, have fun! Soccer camp is good. There is a 2 guys from England (Ash [my coach] & Dave) There is a Irish guy named Patrick and he said his dad was a leprechaun. At the end of each day, we play World Cup except there are only 2 teams. The teams with the most points at the end of each game wins at the end of the week. The two teams are South Africa and Portugal. I am on the South African team. My team won! 3-2. It was tied in the second half. With a minuet to go, i knocked one in winning the game! I got 2 out of 3.
    Stay safe!
    Love Ya! 🙂
