Are YOU up for the Challenge?


101 Things to accomplish in 1001 days. Sign up and take the challenge. Here's my list (so far).

Classic.

Michelle Branch - Breathe


I've been driving for an hour
Just talking to the rain
You say I've been driving you crazy
and its keeping you away
So just give me one good reason
Tell me why I should stay
'Cause I don't wanna waste another moment
in saying things we never meant to say

And I Take it just a little bit
I, hold my breath and count to ten
I, I've been waiting for a chance to let you in

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space in between
I'll know everything is alright
Breathe
Every little piece of me
You'll see
Everything is alright
If I just breathe

Well it's all so overrated
In not saying how you feel
So you end up watching chances fade
And wondering what's real

And I Give you just a little time
I, Wonder if you realize
I've been waiting till I see it in your eyes

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space between
I'll know everything is alright
Breathe,
Every little piece of me
You'll see
Everything is alright
If I just breathe
Breathe

So I whisper in the dark,
Hoping you hear me
Do you hear me?

If I just breathe
Let it fill the space between
I'll know everything is alright
Breathe,
Every little piece of me
You'll see
Everything is alright
Everything is alright if i just breathe... breathe

I've been driving for an hour
Just talking to the rain

Cry of the Heart

Carolina Liar - Show Me What I'm Looking For

Wait, I'm wrong
Should've done better than this
Please, I'll be strong
I'm finding it hard to resist

So show me what I'm looking for

Save me, I'm lost
Oh Lord I've been waiting for you
I'll pay any cost
Save me from being confused
Show me what I'm looking for
Show me what I'm looking for
Oh Lord

Don't let go
I've wanted this far too long
Mistakes become regrets
I've learned to love abuse
Please show me what I'm looking for

Save me, I'm lost
Oh Lord I've been waiting for you
I'll pay any cost
Save me from being confused
Show me what I'm looking for
Show me what I'm looking for
Oh Lord

Show me what I'm looking for
Show me what I'm looking for
Show me what I'm looking for

Save me, I'm lost
Oh Lord I've been waiting for you
I'll pay any cost
To save me from being confused
Wait, I'm wrong
I can't do better than this
I'll pay any cost
Save me from being confused

Show me what I'm looking for
Show me what I'm looking for
Show me what I'm looking for
Show me what I'm looking for
Oh Lord

UGH.

Hey Mr. Right can you be right now?

Seriously why is everyone I know hooking up. Soon I'm going to be blasting Kelly Clarkson on my car stereo. 'Oh, no, I do not hook up, up. I go slow.'

Amen?

And babies? Another person I know is going to have a baby.

And weddings. I know 3 people my age-ish who are practically engaged. Probably more. Bahhhhhhh.

God help me.

Or at least leave this emptiness in the snow and fill it with yourself! I don't want love if its lust or love if its not forever. I want to do everything right once. Because I've been through enough not to want to go through it twice and come out alive on the other side. Keep my eyes focused on you and your will for me. Take away this want and help me feel genuine happiness for these people. Not contempt. Jesus you need to be the center of it all and that's where I need to aim when I fall. Your love not something the world slaps a label on and tells me I need to have and show and be. This is for you in me. Amen.

"Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?"
- Morgan Freeman, Evan Almighty (via anniesheart)

there is no song louder than love

Switchfoot -- The Sound

The static comes in slow
You can feel it grow
Our stream of conscience flows
Under the streets below

The rivers made of sound
Still running underground
Runs like a silent flood
we run as thick as blood

can you hear it rise
up from the ground
can't drown it out
can you hear it now


this is the sound
of a heartbeat
this is the sound
from the discontented mouths
of a haunted nation
we are the voice of breaking
down
can you hear me?
this is the sound
of the desperation bound
by our own collision
we are the voice of breaking
down


the static comes alive
beneath the broken skies
john perkins said it right
love is the final fight

let it rise above
rise above
there is no song
louder than love

this is the sound
of a heartbeat
this is the sound
from the discontented mouths
of a haunted nation
we are the voice of breaking
down
can you hear me?
this is the sound
of the desperation bound
by our own collision
we are the voice of breaking
down

MLIA

~ Today, I ordered burritos online to pick up at Freeb!rds. I put the order name under 'Voldemort' just for fun. When I got home to eat, I pulled out my burrito and it said 'He who must not be named' on top. I'm still smiling. MLIA

~ Today, I went to go get the rubber bands changed on my third set of braces. It was a new orthodontist, so when I told him I wanted red and gold, I was expecting him to say "McDonalds?" like the last three orthodontist I had. He looked at me with a straight face and said "Gryffindor?" I think I found my permanant orthodontist. MLIA

~ Today, my boyfriend embarrassedly admitted that one of the reasons he asked me out is that I look like Ginny Weasley. I started to laugh hysterically. He looked offended until I calmed myself enough to explain that one of the reasons I accepted him is that he looks like Harry Potter. MLIA.

~ Today, I was reading FML in my dorm, when suddenly two guys ran up behind me and tackled me to the ground. A third guy quickly typed something and they all ran off. I sat up to find MLIA. Consider me converted. MLIA

~ Today, as I was leaving my class, I heard my professor yell "Stop!" I froze. My professor proceeded to run in front on me, and jump on a particularly crunchy leaf. He walked off, and I thought no more of it, until I got +10% on my next test, with the note: For satisfying my inner child. MLIA.

~ When I was little I would write my initials on my one dollar bills before I spent them. Today, I bought a cup of coffee and my change included a dollar bill with my initials in the corner. I've waited 10 years for this to happen. It's bound to be a good day. MLIA

~ Today I saw a hot guy that was singing the Pokemon theme song at the top of his lungs during our PE class. I sang along with him, and afterwards, he came up to me and said "I chose you, Pikachu," and handed me a pokeball. I opened it, and read the message inside. Guess who's got a date for prom? MLIA

Amazing Posts!

  1. Never be awful to anyone, that person you were awful to may teach you the most.
  2. Always remember...you are a somebody, God didn't take the time to create a nobody.
  3. Always smile, you never know whose day you might be making.
  4. Never 'forget' to say hi to anyone, never miss the chance to laugh or smile, never get too caught up in yourself that you forget to help others.
  5. Never forget that you aren't the only one with problems, and most of all...never forget that when you feel like you only have one friend, that friend will remind you of all the others.
  6. If you forget about all the bad things in life, the good will take over.
  7. If fear is staring you in the face, close your eyes so you don't have to look at it.
  8. Be yourself, you can't be anyone else...The best you can be is you!

…it’s okay to not be the girl who parties too much and sleeps around; it’s okay to be the girl who wants something solid. I believe in that. - Kelly Clarkson (via tellmetonight) (via delicious-ambiguity)


Sometimes when our friends ask us if we’re okay, we tend to lie, because we know that telling them the whole story is just going to break our heart once more. So we might as well just lie and say we’re fine. - (via runawaytrain)


I’m sick of meeting all the wrong people. I’m sick of being lead on to believe it could be right. I’m sick of being told “lets just be friends.” I’m sick of people saying “it’s going to happen” when nothing happens in the end. Its not that I’m impatient, but really, just when will I meet the one who’s truly meant for me, and who wants to be with me as much as i want to be with him? - (via runawaytrain)

Coffee Grinds

It's raining again. Ah how calming.
Yet The Fly From Hell (numero cuatro) is flying around my head dive bombing me every chance it gets when it decides it would rather not go to the light.

Anyways... school. Ah yes school. Back into the daily grind (I always think of coffee whenever I hear that). I already have way more classes then I had last year. Okay fine, another class plus a private music lesson. Woah.

I think I should be freaking out waaaaaay more then I should be with all these classes, new faces (well a good freaking lot of new ones), more work, higher expectations, and profs hoping for people to share their ideas every single moment of the class' proximity.

Yet I'm not. I actually feel quite at ease with the number of classes (it just feels weird being at school for so long), I feel like I should make some new friends (or connections ;D but really I just don't want to be lonely and if they're in the same program and for the same length I'm going to see them for another two years), I feel like the work won't be a problem (if I finally stop procrastinating since I know the due date from the beginning of the term), and I feel like I can finally just voice my thoughts whether right or wrong (well, hopefully my spoken thoughts will be the right ones...). The only thing I feel like I am freaking out at is the higher expectations. Yeah maybe I am a _____ major. But that doesn't mean I freaking care about it to the point of dying (well maybe that's just me and yo would die for it)

I don't know. I think I'm a little stressed from work too though. I don't want to work there any longer. But with the economy in the shape it is now I'm lucky to have this job giving me any money (got my paycheck tonight ;D). But does anyone know of any place that is hiring and may be desperate enough to hire someone (aka: me)?

I'm looking forward to youth group/ college and careers. It's a combination of the two now... so is it maybe called young adults group???? I'm getting ready to pick some songs for the first worship night. PETER: you should come to (whatever we're deciding to call it) and help lead singing! The few guys we have would be way more likely to sing (I'm thinking) if there's another guy who's actually leading singing.....


Right-o. Beam me up Scotty. There ain't no intelligent life down here.

Things, Oh Marvelous Things!

I'm house sitting in two weeks starting Saturday.

The dog that's there (that I can say I am dog sitting, haha) only understands Spanish. Excellent chance to practice and not get lip back. Bwa hahaha!

School starts in T-minus 3 weeks (from tomorrow). Semester ends in T-minus 3 months and 3 weeks.


First it was all babies popping up in our church, now it's weddings! Craziness!

Tasha's wedding is in a month's (give a few days) time!!!! And then Jessica from church is engaged! And it will be no time before Anna's engaged, I'm sure. And what about Mark and his girlfriend? Yeah, soon enough, soon enough. There's going to be no singles left to talk to soon *insert scream face* Horror of horrors!!!!

This Life Here

So maybe, just maybe I should actually update anyone who actually does read this blog about my life, huh? Wait two minutes as I actually go back in time and try to find my last blog update about my life and update from there.

Okay. Two similar updates. One after each other. March 16th and April 6th. Check 'em out if you need a quick refresher.


~~~~~



Short things: hair cut = love. reading more books = forgot how much I love to read. slowly writing more songs = wish I had more inspiration lately. sarah coming back = amazing. no joke. i've missed her so much and haven't seen her in a year and a half. is it a wonder i've missed her?

Okay, longer things: school has been done since mid-April. LOVE IT. High school is a complete joke and waste of time compared to University. You avoid the drama, live your live, schedule your schedule how you want (for the most part depending on classes) and so on. 2nd year? No more Sociology EVER. No more night classes. More freedom. Love, love, love. I have a bit of a problem with one of my music classes so I have to figure out how to rearrange my schedule without changing my minor. Pain in the butt because I think I figured out what to do but I have to pay a nice large sum of money for that. Ugh. Per Semester = double ugh. Worth it? I'll find out after this year.

So, next thing. Life seems like I'll have more freedom. More time for friends. I expect only to work what I worked last year which was 3 times/ 4 times a week absolute max. With every evening free this year (minus Friday's) it is a super bonus for me!
Work is dragging on and on. I am in the process of looking for a new job but in the recession my hopes aren't that high and I'll continue to hold the job I have right now.
My summer vacation is pretty much over though, in terms of good times and not work. Worked a week out at camp that was rewarding and then went to BC the next week. Good times.

Love life? Bah whatever. Nothing's happening there right now and it's not progressing at any speed. Which may just be a good thing. We'll see what happens this coming year.

Surprises are in store, that's for sure. Good and Bad. For Better, For Worse.

Youth Group seems like it's shaping up to be a good year. I am so stoked for it already. I talked to Mr.T (the head youth leader, duh) with an idea I had for the first YG kickoff. Stoked about that if it happened. I totally wish! But I should put it past Brandi too and see what she thinks since she's doing the planning. Speaking of the planning, she has asked Mel, Steph, and me to do music for the worship aspect. STOKED GUYS. I have like a billion charts floating around so even if it was just an acoustic set sometimes. I really like it because this way I can improve my playing and if we have just a piano some nights, I would still be singing so an excellent way to improve that and get more comfortable singing in front of people!!!
I have an exciting idea in regards to YG but I have yet to ask the person yet about some circumstances. We'll see...?

Tasha's home for the year and Matt is coming on September 1st! So I get to meet him at church on the 6th and then their wedding on the following Sunday!!!! Ah! Matt's going to Carmel for the year. So I guess we get to get use to him for a year. I wonder if Tasha and Matt will come to some YG events???

Anyways it's almost 1 o'clock in the morning. Guess I shouldn't have had that 2 hour nap this afternoon. Haha oops.

3 x 3 x 3

Woah, woah, woah
Hang on baby.
Did you just say you love me?

~~~~

Pop, pop, pop
Goes my head
It is like popcorn in the microwave

~~~~

Bang, bang, bang
Your finger, the trigger
Wave bye-bye to the world

~~~~

Higher, higher, higher
I seem to be gone
Floating somewhere on cloud 9 mayhaps?

~~~~

Sigh, sigh, sigh
This isn't anytime soon
What a boring life I lead.

Beautiful Things

Verse 1:
Work my fingers to the bones
Learn to live, to forget and let go
Sometimes the faces of the past come back
It gets easy to ignore
When hope has been restored

Chorus:
So now I,
I can sing in the rain
I can love without pain
I can live everyday
With these Beautiful, beautiful things
Finally feel my heart beating
Let my lungs breath deeply
all my tears turned to dreams
of beautiful, beautiful things

Verse 2:
Temptation holds the key
To what you think you want or need
Well it takes a stronger man to stand
And learn from the past
But never go back

Bridge:
Regretful heartbreaks
Well it shatters the soul
But after tearful mistakes
A mournful heart may grow
And then let go

I'll get through this thing. I have faith.

Fools Like Me

Beware the danger, it lurks for those who get swept away
The dreamers get punished most by the truth they say
It's all in the little ways one reveals their love's gone away
love's gone away

When my hand was in your hand my heart was pure
And now I see a different man
Rewriting memories
The dogs run down the beach
And all I'm left with is sand in my shoes
Sand in my shoes

'Cause fools like me
Oh we love blindly
And the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me

Now I recall the time at the cafe,
The thunderstorm outside
Words you could never say
they hold the loudest tones
They say you're right
But it's ink on a page
just ink on a page

But fools like me
Oh we love blindly
And the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me

Tick-tock the time
Distant look grows in your eyes
And fools never ask
Afraid what lurks in your eyes
I always knew, somehow always knew
I always knew the truth.

Cause fools like me
Oh we never see
And the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me
And it's breaking
It's breaking
It's gotta break for me to see

At least I can say I was not afraid
I loved you all the way
And I'd pick the fool any day.

Friendsssssss

  • A good friend can tell you what is the matter with you in a minute. He may not seem such a good friend after telling.

    Arthur Brisbane
    , "The Book of Today"

  • Do not protect yourself by a fence, but rather by your friends.

    Czech Proverb


  • You're supposed to trust friends. You have no reason to be his friend? That is part of the pleasure of friendship: trusting without absolute evidence and then being rewarded for that trust.

    David Shore
    , House M.D., Not Cancer, 2008

  • Go through your phone book, call people and ask them to drive you to the airport. The ones who will drive you are your true friends. The rest aren't bad people; they're just acquaintances.
Jay Leno (1950 - )

  • It's the friends you can call up at four a.m. that matter.
Marlene Dietrich (1901 - 1992)

  • Sometimes the measure of friendship isn't your ability to not harm but your capacity to forgive the things done to you and ask forgiveness for your own mistakes.
Randy K. Miholland, Something Positive Comic, 11-07-05

  • The only thing that lasts longer than a friend's love is the stupidity that keeps us from knowing any better.
Randy K. Milholland, Something Positive Comic, 09-07-06

  • A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.
Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784)

  • Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow, Just walk beside me and be my friend.
Unknown, (often attributed to Albert Camus)

  • I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don't believe I deserved my friends.
Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

Believe Me. Please?

Unwell -- Matchbox 20

All day
Staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night
Hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something

Hold on
I'm feeling like I'm headed for a
Breakdown
I don't know why

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know, right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know, right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

Me
Talking to myself in public
Dodging glances on the train
I know
I know they've all been talking 'bout me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong
With me
Out of all the hours thinking
Somehow
I've lost my mind

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know, right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

I been talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they'll come to get me
Yeah, they're taking me away

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know, right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy I'm just a little impaired
I know, right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

Hey, how I used to be
How I used to be, yeah
Well I'm just a little unwell
How I used to be
How I used to be

i found this and like it enough to put it on my blog...

Love isn’t about the romantic nights or gifts.
It isn’t about fireworks going off around you when you have that first, real, kiss.
Love isn’t about kissing in the rain and dancing beneath the stars.
It isn’t about the big moments or the big surprises.
Love is not a fairytale.
Love is about still having the butterflies after years.
It’s about the second looks and laying in bed wide awake, all night,
because you can’t go to sleep mad at each other.
It’s about being willing to sacrifice, literally, everything for someone,
just because you care so deeply for them.
It’s not about buying them gifts, but it’s about leaving them little presents here and there,
just to remind them that you are constantly thinking about them.
Love is about all of the little things, that add up to really big things.
Love is rare and special, but should not be treated as if it will break.
Love needs to be thrown around and beat up a little bit, worn in, but not worn down.
Love needs to be a comfortable feeling, a place to go when no one else in the world can relate.
A safe place, where you know that no matter how ugly you look or how angry you are,
you will still be… loved.

Monday, 6 April 2009

Countdown Begins...

Four more days of classes. Which also means 2 more night classes. And I'm done.

But I have four exams and my last one happens to be for my night class which means. Yes I have to write it in the evening. EWWWWW. But then I have evenings again! So I will suck it up and take it like a man. Or something. Yeah.....

At least I don't have to write any exams on my birthday. Bonus.

Down to the Final Mark

Okay guys. Here's the deal:

I have 2 essays due in less then a weeks time. Sociology is due Thursday (Okay its pretty much written itself I just need to find some sources for one measly paragraph then pump it out to at least 5 pages. Easy Peas.) And English is due Monday. I haven't even looked over the poems to see what I want to do. So finish Sociology and then do English got it.

I hate my singing class. Just because I decided to finish my Spanish paper last week instead of going. So I have no idea. Es la crap.

On my reading list for Summer -- Finish the middle of Persuasions and A Tale of Two Cities. I just had no time to read the entire things for class. I felt bad but at least I didn't have to say anything about them in class.

So only a few more weeks left to go. Easter is around the corner and I finish my exams at least a day or two before my birthday <3 Lucky there. I have a registration appointment this Wednesday... hopefully that's good enough for me to get into the classes I want. Tawnya has to go Friday. No sympathy for her because she decided to book her appointment late. But that's mean.
Never have to take Sociology again in my life! Bwa hahaha. I hated that class. Until last week when we started talking about how prostitution is not illegal in Canada. Really? That is sick. And child prostituition is but yet theres so much of that happening still. It is soooooo.... words don't describe. And some of those kids are as young as 8. Ew. But I digress.

I need to leave in 1/2 an hour for English and my once-a-week singing course. And I only ate breakfast and got dressed... now to actually make my hair look half-decent.

Recession Depression

Random Quote for the day:

It's a recession when your neighbor loses his job; it's a depression when you lose yours.

Brilliance

Epitaph Zion:

Murderous little world once our objects had gazes. Our lives
Were fragile, the wind
Could dash them away. Here lies the refugee breather
Who drank a bowl of elsewhere.

Plumb-tastic

I have found myself really enjoying Plumb's music lately. So here's a song I have fallen in love with:

"Blush (Only You)"

When you look at me I start to blush
and all that I can say is you and us
oh baby I'm so afraid to be in love
with you, with you...

I wanna be in love with only you
I wanna watch the sky turn grey then blue
I wanna know the kiss that's always new
I wanna be in love with only you
just you

When stars are falling dark
we'll light the way
we'll hit the ground and fall
into the shade
I'll light the night with fire
and run away

I wanna be in love with only you
I wanna watch the sky turn grey then blue
I wanna know the kiss that's always new
I wanna be in love with only you

I wanna be in love with you
I wanna be in love (I wanna be in love)
I wanna be in love with you
I wanna be in love (I wanna be in love)

I wanna be in love with you...

I wanna be in love with only you
I wanna watch the sky turn grey then blue
I wanna know the kiss that's always new
I wanna be in love with only you

Just you
I wanna be
just you yeah

Birthday


Happy Birthday Elvis.
Or what would have been your 75th.

"For those too young to have experienced Elvis Presley in his prime, today’s celebration of the 25th anniversary of his death must seem peculiar. All the talentless impersonators and appalling black velvet paintings on display can make him seem little more than a perverse and distant memory. But before Elvis was camp, he was its opposite: a genuine cultural force... Elvis’s breakthroughs are under appreciated because in this rock-and-roll age, his hard-rocking music and sultry style have triumphed so completely."

– (2002) The New York Times

Excitement.

Excitement.

For the first time in my life (Sunday) I felt my age and like an adult. It was an amazing feeling. I was happy with who I am, what I was doing, and everything. It was amazing.

I love the new hardwood floors in the house. They look spectacular. I am glad they are done. It makes me want to do interior decorating.

Tomorrow I am meeting Patricia for coffee. It will be great because I need someone to talk to about everything that has been happening the last few months. I am ready.

Wednesday I start school with English. I cannot wait. I need the readings, and the lectures, and the environment. I need my friends and yes. Then I am going to go buy some luggage bags at Army & Navy because they are on sale and I will eventually need some. Thursday has my first two new classes and only new classes. I am scared yet excited at the same time for them. I pray I will make it through that day.

Friday I will get to see my friends from high school! I have not seen them since June and this is our Christmas exchange. It will be fun, I know it!

This week is shaping up to be good. Minus work.
