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.
"A friend in need is a friend indeed." Apparently, there are two ways to interprete this phrase. How do you interprete it?

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

Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper. ~Isaac Bashevis Singer

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.

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.
