i won’t give up on us even if the skies get rough; i’m giving you all my love – i’m still looking up

Jason Mraz’s new album is streaming through youtube.  I’m holding five conversations at once.  One with a friend from college through facebook, one with my best friend in Georgia through texting, one with you dear reader, one with Jason Mraz, and one with God.

Ah, the things that run through my mind late at night. ::checks time:: well, it’s not even that late at night.  Only 10:30 now.

I’m frustrated again.  My earbud headphones that practically glow a blue-green color, died on me again.  I say again because this is the third pair of the same brand that I’ve gone through.  I haven’t even went through all of the little green rubber things that you stick on them! Sigh unfairness. Oh well. I guess I’ll live. :P  with only one ear working! Grr. So frustrating. Mama said it was because I’m the hardest on any pair of headphones.  But I really do take care of them!  And I don’t bend them in odd ways so that they don’t get shorts so easily.  But I need headphones that work because I listen to music all of the freaking time.

Which leads me to speak of Jason Mraz’s new album which totally rocks my toe socks off… If I had them on right now.  I should, it’s freezing in this house… anyway, that comes later.  Take a listen to Jason Mraz’s new album, ‘love is a four letter word’ (as offensive as that sounds, the music consists of happy, up-beat music that is totally without any four-letter words, excluding ‘love’ of course). Preferably listen to it with headphones that work.

It is so freezing in this house! Teehee, I’m home. ^_^  yup, school’s out for the summer before summer even starts.  Or maybe it has… it just doesn’t feel like it… anyway.  I got fuzzy slippers on, long jeans, a sweat shirt (that unfortunately is very thin, but what can I say? I’m a poor broke college student :P), and a fuzzy blanky wrapped around my shoulders.  I can’t feel my poor toeses, and the tips of my fingers might fall off from typing so fast and feeling numb at the same time. :P

I’m happy to be home. ^_^  we are planning on moving next month to south carolina… my daddy found another job which looks like it’s gonna be a good one.  I saw pictures of the new house… it looks loverly.  And it’ll be the biggest house we will ever live in! I’m so excited. WALK-IN CLOSET FOR MEEEE! Happy stuff. ^_^  I still will be going to Belhaven university next semester along with my older brother who will join me. :)

I recently had to say goodbye to some friends at college who I won’t be seeing next semester.  In particular, four Korean girls who were exchange students to Belhaven.  They really became amazing friends and I know that I’ll miss them so much next semester… it really won’t be the same without my ‘unnies’.  I really hope to go to Korea next semester and see them again.

God is good.  And every time something bad happens, I remind myself that everything happens for a reason, and that God has a good plan for my life.  I know this summer is going to be ridiculously busy, and bound to be stressful and full of anxiety if I let it get the best of me.  I’ll do my best to put in my best effort into this move and finishing my book, and glorify God in the process.  Please pray that as hard as everything will be, that God will be glorified in what we do.

Sorry it has been awhile since I’ve written. ^_^  I’ve been busy, and when I haven’t been busy, I’ve been watching tv dramas. (~_^)  I’m also sorry for the grammar mistakes.  I typed this all out on word documents first – and a lot of y’all know I usually type things out all in lower case.  So, word documents has only capitalized all that it thinks it needs to, and I’m fine with that, as long as y’all can still decipher what I say. ^_^

i also apologize if i rambled too much.  i normally ramble at night.  and i just decided that i need to type out what was going on on word document, so i wasn’t originally going to post all this.  in fact, i had to go back and edit out most of my entry when i decided to let the world know what i’m doing via blogging. ;)

please kick back and enjoy the song.  and then go to bed, because it has gotten late. :P <3

baby, it’s now or never; this time is right… i got a feelin’ it’s for good, without a doubt; we are forever – me and you

hello, world. i’ve been feeling lame whenever i think of this blog in the sense that every time i have time to write an entry for it, i don’t want to, or i have better things to do.  of all the times i could have written something, it had to be now, when i am homesick. i’m really homesick right now… it’s been the longest i’ve ever been away from my family, which is one and a half months. crazy, huh?

well, yesterday i saw my family, but it was for a brief time, just for a walk at the mall and some fluffy fried catfish at jerry’s.  everybody was there except my older brother who skipped out of town to visit his girlfriend in colorado.  teehee, it was great fun hearing stories from my little brothers and jamming with them through the headphones plugged up to my ipod. i can’t listen to super junior anymore without thinking of them.

it’s been ridiculously hot lately.  after i got back from hanging out with my family, i went to gillespie to watch the end of a drama with a friend.  i received a text from cassy while i was gone, asking to sleep in my room (see, at caldwell, she lives on the second floor; and the higher you go in that building, the hotter it gets).  i could only imagine how hot it was while i watched tv at gillespie.  it was kind of roasty toasty in there which normally means caldwell is on-fire kind of hot. :P  i headed back to caldwell and i was right… it was as hot and stuffy as an oven.  i quietly went in my room in order to keep from waking the diva and the roomie.  it was so hot, i tied my hair in a knot on top of my head before grabbing a pillow and laying down on the semi-cool tiles on the floor.

thankfully, someone turned on the building’s air in the middle of the night, so i woke up shivering, (heehee) but i’d rather be cold than hot! :D

so once i discovered that the air conditioning was one, i turned it on full blast and cuddled in my blankets. yes. there is something cozy about being in a freezing room and cuddling in soft, poofy blankets.

so, i saw a very intriguing movie the other day, called heaven’s postman.

it’s korean (i took up watching some korean stuff since i’ve been learning the language).  it’s about a girl who meets a boy who claims that he delivers letters to heaven written by people who miss their loved ones.  the plot was definitely something fresh and the acting was pretty good.  the ending was unexpected – but not too cheezy! (*applause*)  i cried at maybe… two parts? anyway, it was good.

the point of the movie was good too – it basically reflects on the importance of human life.  what we do in our lives reflects who we are and how much or little we value our own lives or other’s lives.  and of course, love.  what would a beautiful movie like this be without a love story? teehee… :}

i know that this is a side note, but the colors in the movie were beautiful.  the whole thing looked like a bunch of artistic photos being flipped fast enough for the objects in the pictures could move… it really was beautiful.

speaking of movies, i’m uber excited for tomorrow! my daddy is going to take me to see star wars episode 1: the phantom menace.  in freaking 3d!  i actually don’t like 3d because it gives me bad headaches, but i will take tylenol with me for something like this!  can you imagine pod racing in 3d?! mwahaha… :D for those of you who don’t know, i’ve seen all of the star wars movies in theaters: the old three when they were put into theaters again after they heard george lucas was making prequels, and then the three prequels.  i saw them all with my daddy in theaters (except for the third and last one – he was deployed at the time). so this is gonna be like old times. except in old times i was shorter. :}

anyway. i just came back from the seniors dance recital with cassy.  it was a beautiful performance.  it made me want to dance even more!  hopefully i can get as good as they were… it was really impressive to say the least.  they had few ballet performances and a few modern dance performances. ooooh, it makes me want to dance!

say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight like this city is on fire tonight; this could really be a good life – a good, good life

vacation with the extended family and friends was fabulous. i’m really starting to dread the coming week – school starting again and all that. visiting with family in alabama was great. we celebrated Christmas three times exactly – one at home, second with daddy’s family, and third with mama’s.

and then for new year’s eve, i got to spend it with my best friend and her family! WOOT! fun times. ^_^ it was by far one of the best new year i’ve ever had. ^_^ music was loud and we all dance and sang. maribeth and i stayed up until 2:30 the first night, 4:30 the second night, and then finally pulled the anticipated all-nighter on the last night there.  needless to say, i slept for an awful long time in the car on the way back home! >_<

it’s Christmas, and we are in love with the way that soft snowflakes kiss us from far above the blustery breeze

first off, i apologize. i could have updated my blog in the past month and a half, but instead, i have danced, listened to music, and watched tv in my free time. ::blushes:: not on cable, anyhow, but on the internet, which causes a real problem, you know – it’s not like on the internet you have to wait until next week for the next episode because all the episodes are there for instant streaming.  i thought my tv watching would be curbed when my dad told me to stop using hulu because it took up all the internet in the house… so i found the tv show on youtube. :} teehee…

Christmas vacation is finally upon us! hooray! although, it would be awkward if it wasn’t, considering, it is Christmas day. :P  it was strange, being the Christmas season is here and all, and i haven’t gone to a single party.  y’all may remember, last year, we were in a constant mess of parties. every night for two whole weeks it seemed we were partying.  so no parties this year (since we moved to a small town in mississippi), but we’ve been excessively busy still.

by finals week, i was staying up until 3:00 and 4:30.  i was thoroughly exhausted and thought that yippee! i can catch up on my sleep at home! but nooo, instead, i was staying up until 1:30 and 3:00 every night and sleeping in until noon every day.  needless to say, my whole sleeping schedule has been pretty messed up.  not that i’m complaining, it’s been fun.  i might start complaining when school starts up, though. :P

so, last night we had a delicious meal at a friend’s house, and the Christmas spirit was really kicking in.  we got home, and drank eggnog while my daddy read the Christmas story from the Bible.  after that, we each opened one present from under the tree. i scurried off to bed at 11:30 (because it really messes up the magic of things if you go to bed after 12:00… i mean, santa comes then, right?).  but unfortunately, the normal excitement for Christmas – you know, the kind of excitement that keeps middle-schoolers up – kept me up for a while.  ‘oh what the heck,’ i sighed – and commenced to opening my laptop in order to watch ‘barbie and the nutcracker’ on youtube.  unfortunately, internet takes forever to load in my bedroom so instead i watched the end dance scene – you know, the part when everything seems like it’s going to end happily ever after when the prince and the sugar plum princess are dancing in the castle courtyard.  successfully made drowsy, i shut my computer and went to sleep.

this morning, i was pounced on by my older brother.  i dragged my feet out of bed, put on my fuzzy slippers and went into the living room.  our stockings are hidden and we have to find them every Christmas – i had a ‘little helper’ who showed me where mine was.  needless to say, i was truly grateful, seeing as my eyes didn’t seem to want to open.

the loot i got from my family! ^_^ unfortunately, wordpress is going too unbearably slow in order for me to upload anything else, so this is all for today folks. :)

i hope you all have a very happy and blessed Christmas! <3

you – are beautiful! you – so beautiful! you – my beautiful! nothing better than you!

i’m. so. sleepy.  i’ve been terrible at going to bed at a decent hour these past few nights.  last week, i even pulled an all-nighter in order to finish a paper.  since then, i’ve been to bed once at a decent hour. like, at nine.  i think the lack of sleep is catching up with me.  i was excited about going home this last weekend (william and his dad visited from colorado! :D) and i was hopeful about getting some sleeping in, but alas! none. :(  so, with that said, i’m going to behave tonight and go to sleep. like, now.

say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight like this city is on fire tonight; this could really be a good life – a good, good life

the sky yesterday evening was s a fluffy, romantic mess filled with pink, orange, and purple hues.  it made me happy to walk in the crisp, cold weather from the student center back to my dorm… it was beautiful. i really wish i had my camera with me at the time, the sky changes colors so quickly! *sigh* anyway.

last weekend i was able to go home and see john in his second basketball game! :) it was exciting shtuff :}

because also it was the weekend before halloween, we watched ‘it’s the great pumpkin, charlie brown!’ and made our pumpkin shaped pizzas. :)

halloween itself was an absolute blast i had several friends dressed up like the scooby doo gang, ‘robyn the hood’, and i was a samantha american girl doll.  several people came up to me to ask if i was a samantha doll – which made me happy to know that my character was recognizable. :)  there was also a gal who was dressed as ke$ha and her costume was great!  she looked almost exactly like her. ;)

well, today was fun-filled. :)  i felt well-rested for the majority of the day (which is rare in my day in the life of a college student :P).  i got up at a reasonable time, did laundry, and cleaned my room.  then i went to a football game with my friends sunny and solhee!  our blazers won, 34-17.  let’s go, BU! :)

now i think i need to study… *sigh* i’ve had such a wonderful day and now i have to end it with studying. :P  but, i think it will still be fine… i’m going to cozy up with a cup of hot tea and listen to this beautiful song solhee showed me:

it is such a calming song and it’ll make me happy while i do homework. and maybe i’ll get late visitors who will study with me… yes, even though i have to study, i’m happy. God has blessed me with such a wonderful day and wonderful friends. God is so good. :)

you’re like the tide in the deep blue ’cause you’re always there when i need you, and when you need someone to carry you through, i’m gonna be there for you

can i just say there there is almost nothing in this world like making pumpkin shaped pizzas with your family, while inhaling the smell of some apple candle somewhere in the house, setting up ‘it’s the great pumpkin, charlie brown!’ movie, all the while yiruma’s ‘the scenery begins’ is playing softly in the background?

i’m home for the weekend. <3

you wanna d – d – d – d – dance? get your dancing shoes!

hello world. :)

i promise i haven’t totally disappeared.  on the contrary, i’m quite alive and well, although i’m also very busy.  school is going well, and i’ve been feeling more confident with my studying and test-taking.  i’m a little nervous for upcoming ones, but i feel really good about what the outcome will be. :)

of late i’ve been having fun with some new friends and catching up with some old ones.  hee, i really do love my peoples here. <3 :)

this last weekend was homecoming.  our football team won (GO BLAZERS! :).  the homecoming dance was fun too – although, because i did not have a dance-able dress, i went in a cute shirt, jean shorts, and black tights.  thus the reason i’m not posting pictures of that. :D  but, i do happen to have a neat picture of the whole party:

it was swell. :) i really do love my peoples here… <3

i started registering for classes next semester.  i felt so confused when i looked at the list of everything i would have to take!  there are so many conflicting classes with what i want to take or what i have to take.  it’s slightly frustrating, but it’ll all work out.

i’ve been dancing a lot lately.  it’s random, but it makes me happy. :}

that was a random statement. :P

tried out a new bible study thingy tonight, which happened to be amazing.  very moving.  they even showed a testimony from lecrae (an amazing rapper).  the music was also very good.  i might go back again next time.  it was a nice way to start off the week. :)

i also wrote my first short story for my creative writing class this last week.  i don’t think it was anything special, but i was happy to have accomplished my third ever short story.  short stories really aren’t my thing.  see – it’s so hard to put a limit on oneself of the number of pages if you really have a good or lengthy plot. :P

been dancing to this song lately. :)

title from: dancing shoes by aj

’cause when she sings i hear a symphony, and i’m swallowed in sound as it echoes through me – i’m renewed, oh how i feel alive, and though autumn’s advancing, we’ll stay young, go dancing

ooooh goodness.  i’ve left y’all for a week and two days.  there’s quite a bit that’s happened:

i played in the rain by the pavilion a few weeks ago…

i went to a waffle house for the first time with a study group.  good service and good food, even though the place was pretty ghetto. :P  here’s a picture of me and my friend, katy, at the waffle house:

my brother trey-boy visited over two weekends ago! :)

and then, best of all, i went back home over fall break this last weekend, which was fabulous.  i also finally got my hair trimmed, which is what i needed terribly. anyhoo, the hair stylist also flat ironed my hair which made me happy to posses model-like hair for the next ten hours. :}

i miss my family so much… we watched ‘it’s the great pumpkin, charlie brown’, ate festive foods, and i made caramel apples!  momsy had fall candles placed and lit all over the place.  so no matter where you went in that house, it smelled like pumpkins or apples.  i’m so in a fall mood!

well, today i did two stupid things.

(1) i dropped my computer on it’s charge cord.  thankfully, the computer slid to the floor more so than an actual fall, so the impact wasn’t too bad.  but i’m kind of worried about my charge cord – it was slightly bent and is still like that.  it still works (thank you Lord!) but i’m praying that it doesn’t get a short in it; i can’t afford a new charger, and i haven’t finished all my Christmas shopping yet! :-/ i’d appreciate lots of prayer…

(2) i dropped the heavy corner of a ten pound weight on the end of my finger. yeeeeeoowwwww! although that happened an hour and a half ago and i’ve had it wrapped in ice since then, it hurts. so. bad. :'(  i can’t tell if it’s broken though since my fingers are naturally odd shaped anyway.  dozens of little blood cells are peaking through the top of my finger.  please pray for me on that note as well.

anyway, i thought y’all would be proud to know that  continued my workout without stopping and didn’t cry until i was finished. :P

a happy song i heard the other day :)
