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?"

*cue the music*

I feel like I need to be all intense right now...










INTENSE.

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
