Friday [Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008 @ 2:31pm]
Friday I get to see Seth! He's going to stop by on his way down to Florida, where he's moving to. He's got family where he'll be moving, seventh generation Floridian and all ;) It means he'll be 8 and a half hours away *sigh.* That's about 3.5 hours more than now, but it will all be alright. I'm not really stressing about it, at this point at least. I am going to be pretty excited to see him, but I think he'll actually be more excited if that's possible, haha :)

A True Friend Might Offend [Monday, July 28th, 2008 @ 11:36pm]
The truth is offensive. The sad part is that if I was as good of a friend I should be then I wouldn't be afraid to offend you guys with the truth (specifically Lauren, Emily, and Karen). But a great fault of mine is that I stay quiet, hoping you'll simply see the difference in me. Rather than showing you the difference, the One; rather than showing you the real reason I made it here in one piece, rather than opening my mouth and putting aside my fears of offending you. See, if I was such a good friend I would tell you what you don't want to hear; you're going down, fast, and there's only one way out and that's a personal love relationship with God, who is my Savior and Teacher. And all three of you are headed down a road that seems so attractive and real, yet isn't and you don't see that's God's the only way out of the hell hole, literally. And you don't see that He loves you more than you will ever know or understand. You don't see that He's the only one who can give you a safe home for eternity. And I SO wish that you did, 'cause it truly makes me sad inside that you don't and don't want to.

From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard Him as thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:16-17
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come! That is my favorite part. The new has come.

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
Ephesians 5:11-14

[ mood | thankful ]

Yesterday (Thursday) was incredible, and yesterday, July 3rd, Seth Brown asked me to be his girlfriend. And that is so awesome because he is such a wonderful guy and he thinks he's so lucky. I'm the lucky one. Only God could have orchestrated something like this over the last several months. Only God could have made the changes that have occurred from last year (especially the ones on the inside of me). How did something so mind-blowing even happen like this? It's almost like I wanna ask "where did this guy come from?" And he totally gets the hopeless romantic in me, which is exactly how I'd want my guy to be.
Wow. I mean, really. WOW.

What If- Nichole Nordeman [Saturday, May 10th, 2008 @ 7:20pm]
What if you're right
He was just another nice guy
What if you're right
What if it's true
They say the cross will only make a fool of you
And what if it's true

What if He takes His place in history
With all the prophets and the kings
Who taught us love, and came in peace
But then the story ends
What then

*But what if you're wrong
What if there's more
What if there's hope you never dreamed of hoping for
What if you jump
Just close your eyes
What if the arms that catch you, catch you by surprise
What if He's more than enough
What if it's love

What if you dig
Way down deeper than your simple-minded friends
What if you dig
What if you find
A thousand more unanswered questions down inside
That's all you find

What if you pick apart the logic
And begin to poke the holes
What if the crown of thorns is no more than folklore that must be told
And retold


'Cause you've been running as fast as you can
You've been looking for a place you can land
For so long
But what if you're wrong

What if you jump
Just close your eyes
What if the arms that catch you, catch you by surprise
What if He's more than enough
What if it's love

What if it's love

I don't live with mom and dad anymore.  Haven't for a little while now.  And you probably already know that, but it hadn't been posted to the public yet.

Kristen [Wednesday, December 5th, 2007 @ 12:08am]
[ mood | complacent ]

Talked to Kristen today at Greenberry's (<- love that place). I, of course, cried but got a glimpse of light at the end of the dark tunnel after talking to her.  Can't go into details right now, but I've got some who will be on my side, will protect me if things get ugly, won't be completely unbiased.  And that's at least slightly encouraging.  And I am so glad she and Slim (Ryan is his real name but we'll say Slim as to clarify) moved here.  Cause overall the timing with having Brian come to be our youth pastor and then having Kristen and Slim come this year was perfect.  I still remember that day when they were still considered brand new and didn't know that many people and I just got the feeling that I should go up to Kristen and introduce myself and make friends.  Cause I'm pretty sure that when you're in a new place having a friend helps.  It was just kinda like an inside voice saying hey go over there and get to know her.  Definitely think God had something to do with it [all].

This night's a perfect shade of
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room when I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning (burning) down
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room well I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning dark blue

What they're talking about in the song is a different kind of being alone in a crowded room.  The good alone.  The romantic alone.  Not the desparing kind.

Greenville [Sunday, March 4th, 2007 @ 1:15am]

Guess whaaaaaaaaat?  I went down to Greenville with Beth, Becky and Beth's gma today (Sat) and we went dress hunting.  So now I have a sleek yellow prom dress (yeah I know, I don't normally get yellow stuff).  Only got a dress, but I'll have time to get other stuff like shoes in the next month and a half.
Now I go to watch movies with Beth on her little TV.  All to ourselves hehehe.  'Night.

Signing up for Classes [Monday, February 26th, 2007 @ 9:15pm]

So my friends,
When it comes time for me to sign up for classes and make decisions like which AP class(es) to take for next year-- make me be very nice to myself.  I could use a year that's not breakneck, or even a semester.  I'd like to go back to reading books when I'd like.

Eh [Thursday, February 1st, 2007 @ 8:02pm]
[ mood | indifferent ]

So today was a bit of a loser, sad to say.  Yeah, we got out of school still for the "snow" but what we did finally get was pretty pitiful.  Hate to say it, but we probably could've gone to school today.  Although if two districts were going to be closed because they actually had snow we would've been out anyways.  So much for that 3-5 inches they were predicting.
I did get to go to dance, but we had a smaller class size, which is okay but it means we had to have a girl or two lead and the new other teacher was helping out too; he's kinda a weird guy.  And I managed to screw up the waist slide in night club merengue (w/ "e" or "i"?) with Burns completely, and I felt like a dork since I've known how to do this step since level two.  Not to mention that I can be a bit of a perfectionist I suppose when it comes to dancing b/c I like it so much and really want to get it all right.  Plus the fact that I really strive to dance well with Burns b/c he's very good and if I get a compliment from him (doesn't tend to be really free with compliments), I feel like I've really earned it.  Aaaaaand TDH wasn't there.  Gah.  So I still enjoyed dance, but circumstances could've been a whole lot better.

This has become the end [Saturday, August 19th, 2006 @ 1:10am]
[ mood | listless ]

My friends this has become the end,
once was a beginning and a bend.
It's been a long, good ride,
but when it ended, yeah I cried.
You see, today my world got changed,
turned upside down and rearranged.
I found an email waiting there for me,
little did I know what it would be.

It was sweet but hurt me yet,
oh you thought you'd never bet-
and nor did I 'til I opened it,
and found the final email writ.
There were words that softened the blow,
but by now you probably know,
the seven months that flew right by,
have recently ended with my guy.

I'm still figuring it out,
and he's going another route.
I would take a lot of hugs, 
while I'm surrounded by half empty mugs,
and dreams that stopped a bit too short,
perhaps I'll find another sort,
of dreams that fills me up inside,
like feeling a horse's perfect stride.

If you want details talk to me,
but for now I have become weary.
And so off I go to sleep I hope,
perhaps to dream? well, nope.
Did I care for him?
Not simply on a whim.

Pretty Good Day at Work [Saturday, August 12th, 2006 @ 1:56am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

It went pretty well today.  I was the only hostess (Cassie helped out some) and we got so incredibly busy.  At one point we had a waiting list and only one table open, in smoking.  I think I did well, and Cassie thought so too.  Yesss, please the management... I got to leave early, got my paycheck (only for one day this time around), and got a free dinner- which was quite good by the way.  We're also rolling silverware differently now...with 2 forks, and flipped around from how it used to be.  Just in case you wanted to know exciting details like that.  The worst part probably is cleaning the bathrooms, both.  Cause I have to knock and sorta say "erm, cleaning" for the guys.  So all in all it was a pretty good day.  I go in to work a double shift tomorrow, my first one.  We'll see how that goes.

[ mood | okay ]

   Yesterday I went contra dancing once again.  It wasn't quite as fun as the first time, but still a good time.  And I would gladly go again.  Mom came with me but she didn't dance much because she's new to it and a bit intimidated I think.  I lead her for a waltz, and she did alright but would forget sometimes to alternate her leading foot (left, right left, right left right, left...).  I was also helping one guy who, as he put it: "I'm such a guy, I'm terrible at dancing" So I was helping him with the waltz.  I did at least get to dance with one of the good guys from the last time I went (Garth).  Maybe I'll be able to go to the Grey Eagle some Monday night.  Now if only JP would go with me....
   One more thing, JP comes home tomorrow. Yay :) So hopefully I can squeeze in some time before school *gag* starts on Thursday.

Better Day [Sunday, August 6th, 2006 @ 1:18am]
[ mood | indescribable ]

   Well, my friends today went better than yesterday.   I went to work right after I left early from a 4H clinic thing (which I wish I could've stayed longer for).  I got to work 10 minutes early and later told Cassie why I was late yesterday and that went well.  It also wasn't as busy and therefore less hectic.  I was kept busy enough but not overwhelmingly.  I was really hungry though because the only thing I'd eaten all day was a bowl of honey nut Cheerios.  So when I finally got home (past 11:30 and after mom and I stopped by the Emily-less Ingles) I made some noodles and added my newly bought alfredo suace.  Yummy.  Finally something substantial to fill up my hungry stomach.  Oh and I didn't get hit on today.
   I'm off to bed and I'd really appreciate a dream right now.  Could use a good and long one.  And then after church and lunch I go back to work at 12.  Ohh I just realized I forgot to do something...hmmm. Goodnight.
