well, I made it back to Taylor safely last night at around 11:30pm...we were planning on getting back at around 7 to Taylor but my flight to Atlanta was an hour late and I ended up missing my next flight by only about 10 minutes! So I hung out in the Atlanta airport for my new next flight for the next 5 hours, lol! I finished two books and read 20 chapters of Psalms, had a chai, and 2 bread sticks and tried some free samples at Bath and Body works, and got way beyond my fill of people watching. It was so good to finally get out of there! I was running low on cell phone batteries so I couldn't call anyone and just talk for fun, or play games on my cell phone -- that was a bummer! Then when I got back I had to work with my partner on a presentation I had to give this morning in my literature class at 9am, so I was up 'til like 3am. And I heard it snowed 8 inches today! in Washington. I watched part of a football game today while I was working out because the Seahawks were playing! And I've never before cared about them until this day. I was actually emotional attachted to the game. It was snowing on the field too :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

I saw this quote on a note on the wall in the prayer chapel the other day:
"Thank You for a love that loves me just the way I am and a love that loves me too much to leave me that way."

Monday, November 13, 2006

I am looking forward to it so much. A new puppy, homemade food, parents, friends, snow hopefully, my own bed and room...ahhhhhh. I do miss leavenworth, lol. *Yes, my parents did come visit us (Dahlia lol), this is what happened, lol -- it was like the funnest days of my life practically.

amazing video of treadmill dancing!

Sunday, August 27, 2006

Well, what to say, I'm getting slightly homesick. :) We got almost everything moved into our dorm. I've been meeting LOTS of people. Too many "nice to meet you'"s. But so far it's been mighty fun and mighty confusing getting all oriented. I miss my friends though!! :( My roommate is pretty funny and we are opposite in a lot of ways, just like in the way we are but we get along and can talk to each other easily, it's really great. Classes start on Tuesday. I would post pictures but I forgot the cord that connect my camera to the computer :(. I really can't wait 'til I actually KNOW people, not just their names. Ivory, I miss you!!! I put pictures of you up and the one of us making faces, it's wonderful. I think I'll call you now, bye!

Okay, I am now a distributer of Layers Clothing! It is a modest clothing company, and today I got the starter kit in the mail which is 17 sample shirts, a swim suit, and catalogues. Everything is really really nice and good quality and not ugly. The website is I'm pyched! I like it so's all really cute, but modest at the same time..and comfy..and not ridiculously expensive...Hopefully I will be able to make lots of $$ at college :)..

For 10 million dollars would you run over a dog with your car?

Saturday, May 20, 2006

I had a dream last night. I was sitting somewhere and a guy came up with this golden retriver. I started petting it and rubbing it and saying how cute it was and then the guy starts breaking out in a song from Mary Poppins. I think the song was "Chim-Chimeney Chim-Chimeney Chim Chim Sharoo" but I'm not sure...anyway he started making a parody of it, changing the words to stuff about his dog...and it sounded incrediblely good! It was like my dream became a musical right there. He was very musically talented, and he started tap dancing around and everything...I wondered, "who is this guy!" Then, next scene I was with Chelsea and Heather from work and the guy, and Chelsea was organizing for the four of us to go on tour singing these songs and dancing around. We had already ordered these little green masks for us to wear while we were performing and everything. She was trying to get Mr. Gledhill to sign our feildtrip forms, lol. But Mr. Gledhill was in a bad mood and just said, "You really need to stop doing everything so last minute, I can't sign this!" So we were really bummed, and Chelsea was we just sat around and thought to ourselves, "Dang, the audience is really gonna miss out.." ...and that was it :) It was a very fun dream!

Out in the Fields with God
by Anonymous
The little cares that fretted me
I lost them yesterday
Among the fields, above the sea,
Among the winds at play,
Among the lowing of the herds,
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing of the birds,
The humming of the bees.
The foolish fears of what might happen,
I cast them all away,
Among the clover-scented grass,
Among the new-mown hay,
Among the husking of the corn,
Where drowsy poppies nod,
Where ill thoughts die and good are born--
Out in the fields with God.

I thank Steve for this game.
Well, Megan and I just came back early from our shopping day. It seems someone succeeded in poisoning Megan through those cinnamon rolls this morning! Poor girl. They sure were killer cinnamon rolls though I guess, lol.

Just got over with bible study on Colossians. Had an interesting discussion we need the bible? The arguement is, Paul and the other apostles didn't have the New Testament (before it was written) when they were filled with the Holy Spirit and thousands were saved each day. So why do we need it today?
Well, we kind of decided the answer is...we need it today for correction. We read it, and it either confirms the way we are already living our lives...or it lets us know we need to make a change. Christ in you is the most important thing, and the New Testament shouldn't just be more Law.
I think some people have been led to believe that studing and memorizing the bible will solve their problems. A chapter a day keeps Satan away?? but's only Jesus the person that can bring reconciliation to God.

here's a line from the movie Joe vs. the Volcano that I <3:

Do you believe in God?

I believe in myself.

What's that mean?

I have confidence in myself.

I've done a lot of soul
searching lately. I've been
asking myself some tough
questions. You know what I've
found out?


I have no interest in myself.
I think about myself, I get
bored out of my mind.

My father says almost the whole world's asleep. Everybody you know, everybody you see, everybody you talk to. He says only a few people are awake. And they live in a state of constant total amazement.
I'm at the college right now, killing time before my violin lesson. lkfjgdlkhjtoiuuIIIYYDIEDRJ(*&&TFDGD%^WHNMSKO{{NCG. yeah...I could not sleep last night, it was really troublesome. I was having lots of dreams. They weren't happy dreams, but not horrifying either. I just didn't know what to do in a lot of them. eeeek.*gasp!* I just remembered I had a dream that MacKenzie quit the Chocolate Factory! Right after Sarah. :(

Well, I wasn't sure earlier, but now I'm as sure as I can be that LeTexier is not a believer. We are now in the sex psychology unit in her class and today there was a discussion on sexual orientation.

I am very concerned about the future of our world. I am very concerned about the impact secular psychology will have on the next generations. The Godless psychology. The whole homosexuality issue. People who are not Christians have no reason to think it wrong because it passes their man-made steps for morality.
*as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else, it's not wrong.

I hate how the world is so structureless. I hate how it is so chaotic when it's left with just itself.

She says "Define normal."
No one can do it because "normal" is another way of describing "what we are supposed to be." The sensible way of doing things. The normal way. Normal seems to imply that it has peace. Without knowing it, she is asking "what are we supposed to be like?" "what is the normal, peaceful way of behaving?" She doesn't give time for us to think or answer of course because the point of asking "what is normal?" is to say that normal doesn't exist. ...if you think about it, she is saying God doesn't exist. That there are so absolutes. And believing that and believing God at the same time is impossible. Absolutley. If only she knew believing there are no absolutes is absolutely wrong!

here's some quotes about writing:

Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers. - T. S. Eliot

"The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe." - Gustave Flaubert

A metaphor is like a simile. ~Author Unknown

When we see a natural style we are quite amazed and delighted, because we expected to see an author and find a man. ~Blaise Pascal, Pensées, 1670

Every writer I know has trouble writing. ~Joseph Heller

When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing. ~Enrique Jardiel Poncela

Writing comes more easily if you have something to say. ~Sholem Asch

What no wife of a writer can ever understand is that a writer is working when he's staring out of the window. ~Burton Rascoe

The best time for planning a book is while you're doing the dishes. ~Agatha Christie

If you want to get rich from writing, write the sort of thing that's read by persons who move their lips when they're reading to themselves. ~Don Marquis

Writers are not just people who sit down and write. They hazard themselves. Every time you compose a book your composition of yourself is at stake. ~E.L. Doctorow

I think it's bad to talk about one's present work, for it spoils something at the root of the creative act. It discharges the tension. ~Norman MailerWriters at Work, 3rd series, PMB-->

Your manuscript is both good and original; but the part that is good is not original, and the part that is original is not good. ~Author Unknown

There's only one person who needs a glass of water oftener than a small child tucked in for the night, and that's a writer sitting down to write. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966

A story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end... but not necessarily in that order. ~Jean Luc Godard

A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people. ~Thomas Mann, Essays of Three Decades, 1947

Writing is a way of talking without being interrupted. ~Jules Renard

An original writer is not one who imitates nobody, but one whom nobody can imitate. ~Chateaubriand, Le Génie du Christianisme, 1802

I do not like to write - I like to have written. ~Gloria Steinem

A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author. ~G.K. Chesterton

No man should ever publish a book until he has first read it to a woman. ~Van Wyck Brooks

The two most engaging powers of an author are to make new things familiar and familiar things new. ~Samuel Johnson

There are thousands of thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen and writes. ~William Makepeace Thackeray

I want to write books that unlock the traffic jam in everybody's head. ~John Updike

Here's my mouth, lol.

Monday, March 06, 2006

I created a blog! yay! lkj;haohfksjdncksdbshf!!!!*)

I registered for Web Content Development I today, for next quarter. I was signed up for Greek and Latin Elements of English, but it got canceled for some reason so I had to find another class. That class was only a level 100 anyway, so it's probably a good thing I'm not in it because I think it has to be at a least a level 101 to go toward an AA.

Here is my new schedule for Spring Quarter:
Inter. Karate MW 9-10am
First Aid and Safety 10-11am
Web Content Development I 12-1pm
MicroEconomics 1-2pm

I'm going to sew a skirt today, lol. I set up my mom's old sewing machine and everything. I bought the fabric and stuff a long time ago, but I never got around to actually doing it. I just cut out the pattern. The fabric is cotton so I put it in the dryer so it'll shrink. Sewing frustrates me like nothing else--that's why I'm doing this. My mom has been trying to help me read the pattern and I don't know what it is..something about following directions so carefully makes me so frustrated~! It's the same with cooking. grrrrrr.

Caleb decided that he's going to Taylor with me! I'm glad. I think he would like it more there than at Central. The other night I had a dream that I was at Taylor and meeting my roommate for the first time. It was weird--I saw her face so clearly. She was half black, half hispanic...and we totally clicked. We got along sooo well, it was perfect.
