Listening: ‘Books Written for Girls’ by Camera Obscura

Reading: This would completely eliminate some peoples Twitter accounts.

Thinking: Being a Christian means that the cycle of violence, hate, and retaliation stops with you. And sometimes that *really* sucks. But in the end, I know that it is right.

How to Annoy Me: Act like you are above someone simply because you are more skilled at the task at hand then they currently are.

How to Charm Me: Be the answer to my prayers without even knowing it.

Quote of the Day: It is more important who they are as people and only then is it important who they are as dancers. – Marcia Haydee

Listening: ‘Winners and Losers’ by Social Distortion (Thanks to author Bob Ford for directing me to this band!)

Reading: “In March 2007, Chiquita Brands plead guilty to doing business with a terrorist organization…” (People make me sick, I swear.)

Enjoying: The Daily Dish: Best Typo Ever

Thinking: I’m just…happy. 🙂

How to Annoy Me: People have been acting more and more insane behind the wheel of a car. I can’t decide if I’m annoyed or just plain scared.

How to Charm Me: Be the man I never knew I wanted. 🙂

Quote of the Day: I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be. – Douglas Adams (I also think that this is going to be my life quote!)

…knowing that you are going home and that loved ones are there waiting for you. (And I don’t mean a house or blood family in this case.)

…seeing a yellow butterfly while you’re out on a walk and smiling up at the blue sky to say “Thank you, Papa”.

…quietly holding the hand of the one you love while you drive, knowing that no words are needed.

…having two of your best friends agree to go on a donut run with you for your birthday.

…knowing that you don’t have to have the latest gadget or fashion statement in order to be exactly who you are meant to be.

…having a friend who is willing to help you in a class you are struggling with.


…having the power to let go and forgive people who have hurt you.

…being surrounded by people who love and forgive you, no matter how grievous your mistake.

…knowing that eventually, it will be okay.

…having your prayers answered.

…reading a good book.

…sharing a laugh with a friend.

…hoping and trying, everyday, to become more like Jesus.
