I just realized...

that I completed someone on my bucket list without even remembering it was one there. What's that?--"driving on the interstate". Done. :D

Things I Love Thursday.

Oh, this week has been a testy one for sure. There have been completely splendid moments and then completely the opposite. To add to that, I am about to fall asleep--I am getting old. :D Let's start this baby eh?
  • This Facebook status that my friend posted referring to a conversation she had with her little brother. (: "Tony was going on and on about seeing a picture of Brittany (censored last name), so I pull one up and say 'Well...there you go.' 'That's looks like a Brittany! Yeah! I know her! She's a pretty looks like a princess. Now Imma shake my butt' Haha. What that kiddo."
  • Friends are awesome.
  • Knowing that people have seen a change in me.
  • Successful talks about the future with my father. (:
  • Having really weird dreams repeat themselves.
  • Knowing my mommy comes home Sunday.
  • Feeling loved.
  • Realizing that I am created to be me and no one else.
  • Did I say friends already?
  • Getting to see the lovely Katrina. :D
  • God has been pretty stinkin' awesome this week.
  • Seeing that some people "on the job" are nice enough to make time to answer a few questions to help a student out.
  • Puzzles!
  • Completing almost an entire module in Chemistry already this week. :D
  • Words.
This was actually a pretty unique Things I Love Thursday, but I am okay with that. (: I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your week and be on the look out for some possible exciting news!

 Also, add the "awesomeness" of this photo to the list of things I love. (:

Things I Love Thursday.

Oh, what an eventful week! I feel like time has flown by since last week; so have my blog postings though eh? :D Let's get this started shall we?

getting to cross something off my bucket list - how playful Soot has been this week - knowing that I will get to see my best friend in a couple of days - Robert Frost - scarves - having a conversation with friends you use to be really close to like nothing ever happened - my interesting dreams - having brilliant ides - getting complimented on my writing by someone I look up to - getting lost in worship - making home-made cupcakes with my sister - dropping a piece of one of the said cupcakes on the floor, just to turn around and see that the cat had eaten it - seeing that my favorite blogger, theoneinpink, visited my blog - marcel the shell with shoes on - talking abut dream cars, computer, and phones with my dad - sneezing in youth, while sitting on the front row, and hearing people behind me saying "bless you" - taking four pages of notes because a sermon is so good - learning that there are people who trust me and are willing to confide in me - knowing that Project Runway comes on in T-minus 43 minutes - successfully going through an algebra problem on the phone with my teacher - being happy (:

And here my friends, is a nifty photo to send you on your way.

Quotes Worth Quoting.

Robert FrostImage via Wikipedia
"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on."
- Robert Frost
"A poem begins with a lump in the throat; a homesickness or alovesickness. It is a reaching-out toward expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words."

- Robert Frost

You are acknowledging that there will be monetary sacrifices in this career but that there will also be non-monetary benefits to this type of work. There are a lot of choices to think about in the future. It is important to make good ones! You sound like you are on the right track.

More about light switches.

If you are a dedicated reader, you have already read my last post about light switches, "I trip and fall for no good reason at all". If so, you know that I spoke about how I tend to go through life tripping and running into things when all I have to do is go to the light. With the help of the Light, things tend to be a little bit easier, not to mention less painful. Now that you know that history, I can continue on. 

I guess you guys say that P.Joe, my youth pastor, has a way with saying things that stick with me for a while. This time the light switch isn't just about you as a person tripping and falling, but about everyone around your running into things getting hurt as well. We live in a dark world where millions of people are in pain; if we were to strop and listen we would hear the cries of the people around us--it would be like hearing screams in the pitched black. What and eerie thought, but such a true one. 

Before I get ahead of myself I better take a step back. Everyone has a choice, has the ability to make a difference and become a revolution (quick shift in power). Some people believe they can change the world, while others believe that "world-changing" is impossible. Whether you believe you can change the world or not, you can make a change--even if it is just in your family or friends.

I already see minds spinning while I say this so I will go a little deeper. Whether you know it or not, the way you live your life effects those in a direct, or indirect, ripple effect around you. For example, if we are all in a pitched, black room and I turn on a flashlight, I am not the only who is going to be able to see something. With the help of my flashlight, anyone around me will be able to see better than they could before. 

I am a person who struggles with self-worth quite frequently, so hearing this message really made me think. Sometimes it is easy to believe that what I do doesn't matter in the long run; needless to say, I was proved wrong. We all have a place in this world, all made unique, unique to our Father. We all also have opportunities to shine our light, His light, to help other people out.

So readers, will you continue to sit in the dark with the screams of those around you, or will you decide to let your light shine? 

PS: Thanks to P.Joe for his awesome wisdom.
