100 Things

December 29th, 2011

A somewhat regular question in my life is, “Tell me something I don’t know about you.” Well guess what? I can come up with 100. This isn’t going to be easy, but I can do it! Here we go…

My Wish

November 11th, 2011

I have been seeing “Happy 11/11/11!”“What’s your wish?” … and “Happy Corduroy Day” on Twitter all morning — It’s fun to have a date that has a neat order. Like my birthday last year, was 8/9/10. (Now you know my birthday, I expect a party next year, haha.) It’s nice to have a day where I can be lazy and just write a bunch of straight lines for the date… And this date certainly satisfies my OCD.

I’ll Be There For You

November 10th, 2011

I once heard a story about a girl who felt invisible to the world, and cleaned out her locker one day with plans to go home and commit suicide. While walking home, she tripped and dropped a lot of the stuff she was carrying. Someone ran over and helped her pick up her things, and walked the rest of the way home with her. They started talking and the person asked if they could hang out again sometime. She no longer felt alone, and didn’t go through with her plan. Whether or not this story is true, I don’t know. What I did learn from this story, is that a simple action can make a person feel that someone cares.

We all know what it’s like to feel forgotten. To feel pushed to the side and left there. It’s natural and common. The worst is being in a room full of people and feeling so alone. I hate that anyone in the world ever feels this way, and do my best to make sure the people around me know I care.

Stop Compromising.

September 22nd, 2011

Watch out, here comes a huge Munkie foot — I am a little sour right now. Tonight I looked at my Facebook wall. A friend of mine posted this link:

Couple Fined For Holding Bible Study In Home

It got me thinking. Anyone that knows me, knows this bothers me. More than bothers me. I have seen first hand, not just on websites, the punishment for being a Christian. You and I both have seen the ridicule teens in the United States endure for being a “Jesus Freak.” We’ve all been in high school. Maybe you were that kid. I was, sometimes. Now, I don’t mind. But it sure did hurt then.

Set an Example

September 3rd, 2011

A couple days ago, someone posted something on Twitter that hit a weird nerve in me. The tweet said this:

“Don’t ever trust anyone, and don’t do anything for anyone. They will stab you in the back.”

I was tempted to say something directly to that person, but decided that they weren’t the only one who could use the words I am going to share. Maybe you are the one who posted that tweet, maybe you aren’t. Maybe you will see my point, maybe you won’t. But either way, I have something to say, and it’s your choice as to whether or not you read it. Continue reading »

Facebook!

August 23rd, 2011

Facebook! Evvvvveryone and their mother (literally,) has Facebook. Some choose not to “friend” their parents or relatives… most of the time because they don’t want them to see what they post. My parents are on my Facebook friends list, because I don’t mind if they read what I have to say on Facebook. I try to be as positive on Facebook as I am on this site. My grandma could read my Facebook posts, and I wouldn’t be embarrassed by them.

My opinion on “not friending” parents is this: I understand not wanting parents “too involved” in your life. But if it is only because you would be embarrassed if they did read it, you should probably reconsider what you are posting. I’m not saying “shame on you!” or saying you are a bad person — Just something to think about. Continue reading »

Oh Sad. Well, I…

August 19th, 2011

We all have bad days. We all have misfortunes. We all lose people we love. We all grieve. We all get hurt. We all have our hearts broken at some point. We all cry. None of us live perfect lives. God didn’t make any one of us immune to any of these things. But, he gave us friends and loved ones to lean on when we can’t quite stand up straight on our own. Now, let’s talk about friends. The good, the bad and the ugly. Continue reading »

It’s All I’ve Ever Known

August 1st, 2011

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a creature amazed by the mind of a human. Though I am in possession of  a brain myself, I find it incredibly intriguing that each and every one is able to think for itself, make decisions on its own, and essentially manage an entire body, day in and day out, for years on end. No wonder our bodies aren’t immortal… They are working at all times, for years. I’m sorry, but if I were a body (and not just a soul inside one,) I would need a nap. Continue reading »

Bubble Boy

June 24th, 2011

Yesterday I took my son to the doctor, because of a stomach issue he’s been having. I took him to a doctor who specializes in children. When we walked in, I was impressed (and a little excited!) – anyone who knows me, knows I haven’t outgrown my inner child. I doubt I ever will …. I like the child I was, and I think staying young is completely a state of mind. My body’s just gonna have to deal with it. SQUIRREL! … Continue reading »

I Shouldn’t Have To Write This…

June 20th, 2011

As I sit down to write tonight, my heart is very heavy. What I am about to write, no one should ever have to write. This may seem to conflict what I posted last night, but I honestly think it goes perfectly together. Today, something happened… Something that really isn’t uncommon, unfortunately… But someone needs to say something, and hopefully this can help at least one person. Some people are going to call me paranoid, but I would rather be called paranoid and help one naive person out there, than sit here and say nothing at all. Because of my personal beliefs on this issue, I can’t sit here silently. So, please listen… especially young people.
