Thank God.

Thank the Lord July 8th is almost here. I want this fixed, and I want it fixed now....

I hate my underbite, and yes these braces have widened my top pallate, which has been wonderful. But seriously it has mad my underbite look wayyyy worse! It has made my teeth perfectly parallel, whereas before they were on a slant. darn.

only 2 and 1/2 months left. :)

Monday+Orthodontist= UGHHH!

I had an ortho appointment today. It all started out good, the norm: taking the wire out, changing the bands, and the wires. She was putting in the bottom wire and was about to cut the excess off and then... BAM!!!! She popped a bracket! It hurt really bad. She had to replace it, which took an extra 15 minutes... bless her soul. She felt pretty bad and was frustrated that we had almost been done and she had to do all of this extra work. I reassured her it would be fine.

The new wires do not feel too bad. They are a little tighter and already a bit sore, but for the most part they are not too big of a change.

Also I forgot my toothbrush and toothpaste!!! So I had to use one of their dinky disposable ones and had to brush with mouthwash. They didn't feel very clean at all... Overall this monday stunk.

Do you know when you go back to work/school monday and all you see is a VERRRRRRY busy and stressful week ahead and you feel discouraged and already beat? Well that was this Monday. It is the last week of the 6 weeks grading period so all of my teachers are cramming all they can into out week so they can get it in the gradebook. ARGH!

Thanks for enduring that shpill... I promise my next post will be better. :)

Here I am trying to put on a happy-face for all of my followers. haha...

A Terrible Blogger...

I am sorry I have been neglecting you...

my poor little jaw journey blog has been put under the shadow of my new blog ( It really is sad, but I will post now. :)

Everything with my teeth has been the same... I have no idea when my next ortho appointment is... I probably should ask my Mom, but she usually is able to keep track. Thank the Lord. haha

Here is a fun one. :)

Like I said not much has happened... I had a teeth cleaning. That went fine... I was a little awkward having to go around the brackets, but she did it. Um... Oh, and less than 3 months till surgery... WOOHOO! I am super excited (and nervous, but who isn't?).

I hope you all are doing fabulous! Feel free to leave me some questions... or some loving comments. :)

Have those days???

If you haven't had your jaw surgery yet... or can remember back before? Did you have days where you just felt so awkward? As if your small "defect" was super noticeable? Self conscious? Ugly?

I had one of those days. :P

I hope it is normal.

*hair was done like this for the purpose of this post. haha*

My New Blog...

Yes I realized that this blog if for my jaw and my teeth, and I wanted to shpill more than that. haha. so I created a FOREVER standing blog called "So Far So Great" if you have enjoyed my soapbox moments on Makay's Jaw Journey you should follow my other blog. And if not still check it out, and see what you think. I would love to see all of you following me both ways! :)

Oh, and yes I will continue posting on this blog, but more about my Jaw Journey rather than everyday happenings and ramblings. I am just seperating the 2. Mostly so after I am done with my whole jaw surgery and recovery I can still blog about my everyday life. :)

Here is the URL:

I hope you all enjoy it, and follow me! :)

Spring Break (Day 3)...

The things I did:
-hangout with my friend Brittany2
-take awkward, yet hilarious pics with Brittany2
-workout (I should show you my guns... haha)
-procrasinate some more
-workout some more
-blog a little

Then the day was over. As you can see I procrasinate! Not always to the last second, but I am pretty bad about it. So after I post this I am going to intenseley work on my Independent Project for Ap LIT. :P Not that I want to or anything, but it is just a big thing that is on my back, and it is kind of stressing me out just by knowing I have to do it.

Here are some of those """Awkward""" pictures Brittany2 and I took. (Note: I am calling her Brittany2 because I have two friends name Brittany... One I call Britt... The other Brittany. You see? haha)

okkkkkkkayyyyyy... now that you have all experienced the many faces of "makay" we can move on eh? haha.

So only 3 more days till I am sweet 16!!! I'm super duper excited... But then I have to wait until the 24th for my party, AGONY! haha. For my actual birthday on April 11th I am just going to have my favorite meal, and delicious dessert of my choice. When I told my friend Connor that I couldn't wait to be "legit" 16, he said that I should "be happy I can be excited to be a year older, because oneday it won't be that way." haha. Keep in mind this is a 15 year old boy, not a 79 year old. He kills me with his logical nature. haha.

Today I am going to get a teeth cleaning and work on my IP ap lit project. Nothing exciting, but Friday we are taking my little brother to "Lego World" so I will post about that. haha. :)

oh, and btw my lil brother was a little sad he got no fan mail for his amazing singing. haha. I think maybe you all need to see him at his full potential in an edited music video that is. ;)

here ya go...

If that didn't just steal your heart, nothing will haha.

Beautiful Day (Spring Break Day 2)...

For spring break my mom promised me, my brother, and my sister our own day... I had mine yesterday. All I wanted to do was go see "The Last Song", and just letting you all know it is AWESOME, AMAZING, BREATH-TAKING! Yes, Miley doesn't seem like a serious actress and she isn't, but her performence was actually suprising. Though I caught my self getting caught up in her overbite (in which she defiently exaggerates) and her heavy breathing, the leading man would walk onto the screen, and so then all was forgiven because well... look at him:

Plus the plot was awesome, tearjerking, but great... So today was my little sis' day... She decided to go to this gorgeous park and trails... Since pictures are worth a thousand words look...

My lil' bro's day is going to be a trip to "Lego World" as he says. haha. Hey is very excited to say the least. Here are a couple funny events that occured today while at the park... My lil' sis pulled open this drawer in the park's wildlife mueseum and was like "Mom look at all the little stuffed animals!" When we told her they were killed to be put in that drawer she wasn't very happy, almost in tears actually. haha.
Then when we went to the dock my brother did the most AWKWARD yet hilarious walk ever... this is all I got of it... I wish I had it on video. ;)

My sister totally swiped this little guy out of its natural habitat (don't worry we put it back after these pics, and it swimmed away safely.) Isn't it cute! haha.

haha... okay yeah... That is my little brother singing "Mandisa" from the song "Lose my Soul" by Toby Mac. haha. He loves fan mail so leave some below. ;) Then I came home and went on a bike ride in the sun. It was awesome. I will bring you direct coverage of my spring break, tommorow we are having some friends over so that should be fun. Then Friday is "Lego World" so I will get some pics of my very excited brother during that event. haha. :)

Show and Tell with Makay...

I am going to hold a show-and-tell today... haha. Here are some fun things I got for Easter:

A red bear, named Rojo... haha.

"See the Morning" Chris Tomlin CD. My current faves on this album are: "How can I keep from Singing", "Made to Worship", and "Let your Mercy Rain". Chris Tomlin has an amazing voice for some seriously inspirational songs...

Cadbury Eggs, MMMMMMMMMMMMMM... my all time favorite! They are so good! I get one 4-pack a year and that is it. So I enjoyed biting into one yesterday. They are little taste of heaven. :)

I also got a coloring book and crayons, haha. I think the """Easter Bunny""" still thinks I am 5. ;)

And also to little "pocket" bottles of Hand sanitizer that is Strawberry scented.... In AP lit I always put on hand sanitizer, and it SMELLSSSS! My friend Wes coughs (dramatically of course) when I put it on. It is ridiculously potent, but this one smells really good. This one is for you and your nostrils Wes... haha. You can thank the """Easter Bunny""". ;)

I hope you all had a fabulous and joyful Easter, and I will be posting soon. :)

Happy Easter...

He is risen! Celebrate, the ressurection of our Lord! Finally we are through 3 days of waiting after Jesus' death and now he has risen!

"The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."
-Matthew 28:5-9

Today is a great day of worship in which we will shout onto the highest "How great is our God" "Hosanna" "He is risen!" It is at this time that I remember why, and how God gave His one and only perfect son for us, for all humaninty, so that we can one day enter the pearly gates of Heaven. The sacraficial death, for you, and for me, for everyone... All you have to do is tap in and let Him come into your heart and mend your brokeness. So someday you will bask in the warmth and love of Heaven and God.

I hope you all have the best Easter ever! Remember what God has done for you today.

love always,

Good Friday...

I know I mentioned this in my last post, Good Friday. A Christian holiday in which we remember the sacrifice God made for us... as said in John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that whoever should believe in Him should and would not perish, but have everlasting life." I feel that this is a day of pain and sorrow, a day to remember all that we have, and all that we do not do... If you are a Christian today you should spread the word of this great act of love. If you are not you should look and see, this is what God did to save us from our sins. If you go to this website you can see how to become a member of the Christian family today, and experience the plan that God has set you on this Earth for. (

I wanted to post this video from the Passion of Christ the movie directed by Mel Gibson. The epic and inspirational story of the Messiah Jesus Christ, the son of the living God. It is intense, but it shows the true meaning of today, and Easter Sunday.

That was all for us... He would have gone through that for ONE of us... but instead he was able to provide a gateway for all man-kind. I felt moved to share the story of Easter, and Good Friday so that you could understand the reason we celebrate it in the first place.

There is a tradition that my family does every year... and that is Easter Story Cookies... I want you all to make them. They are delicious, but best of all they have a meaning. Here is a link to an amazing tradition:

I hope this Easter, whether you are Christian or not, that you will ponder the true meaning, and hopefully decide to take part in the ressurection of our Lord. :)
