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

when i was just a young’un i’m look but so precious, but now i’m grown up, so fly its like a blessing, but i can’t have a man look at me for five seconds without be feeling insecure. see you had a lot of crooks tryna steal my heart, never really had luck, couldn’t never figure out how to love…

title from: how to love by lil wayne

all that i’m after is a life full of laughter – as long as i’m laughing with you; i’m thinkin’ that all that still matters is love ever after, after the life we’ve been through ’cause i know there’s no life after you.

this will be the last time that i post on my blog in a long time. i’ll go one step at a time. :P

the retirement ceremony! i promised that i wouldn’t cry, and guess what?! i cried. :P it was very lovely. daddy unfortunately wasn’t able to have a whole, decked-out navy ceremony because his flag bearers and side boys backed out at the last minute. but despite that, it still turned out perfectly. daddy even said that he was glad that it didn’t work out, or else it would have been focused more on the navy and not the gospel message or his family.  it was beautiful. :)

:)

we’ve been to several parties and have said goodbye to a lot of people as well. it’s been rough, but i know i’ll see them all again. i’ve actually been guaranteed a job already as a live-in nanny for the sarah and andrew – the kiddos i nannied last year! i’m excited to see them and everybody else again. :)

we’ve said other goodbyes as well…

sunday was john’s birthday party. we all went to the park to play games in order to celebrate his fourteenth birthday. but because a lightning storm unleashed not twenty minutes into the game. :P some sweet friends offered to host it at their house so we had an indoor party. it was still very fun, but there were a lot of weepy goodbyes at the end.

we had dinner with more friends last night and we’ll have dinner with more friends tonight and some the next night – our last night. unfortunately, i haven’t had the chance to upload more pictures. on thursday we leave colorado to visit people on our cross country trip to mississippi. so, on that note, i’m not sure when y’all will hear from me next, though i hope it’ll be soon.

well, it may sound like i’m a little down in the dumps here. but God is faithful so i’m confident that everything will turn out for our good. and, it’s not like i’m not coming back next summer. ;)

so, time for some happy tunage! :D  whenever i feel a little down, i listen or dance to it, or sometimes both. ;) when i hear it in my head, i can’t help but dance too! (i don’t doubt that it offers another excuse for people to look at me funny :P) but it all makes me so happy. :}

ps, i still can’t believe that the final harry potter comes into theaters the day after we move! i know that it’ll *have* to happen, but i want to see that movie so bad! what can i say? it’ll be epic. :) aaand, i’ll wear my ‘i <3 fred’ shirt in support of the poor dood. :)

so if you just hold my hand; baby, i promise that i’ll do all i can – things will go better if you just hold my hand – nothing can come between us if you just hold my hand…

the days and weeks have been getting longer, but at the same time, at the end of the day or week, i think to myself, ‘how did all of that happen so quickly?’ it’s hard to believe that we have only two weeks left here in colorado, before our big road trip. (oh, so i don’t really know when i’ll be posting… visits to my blog and working to update it will be highly unlikely during our trip, but even though you wouldn’t know what will be going on at the time, prayers would be appreciated. :) we’ve been to a goodbye party already and my life has been tired and hectic in the fact that i’ve been trying to hang out with all of my friends before i leave. so, be assured that next time i post, i plan on posting pictures. :)

goodness gracious… i’ve always imagined myself in a place other than colorado, but i’ve never thought of being in a place without my friends. i mean, i’ll be going home to some that i haven’t seen in a long while, but these friends are in colorado, which means visits are highly unlikely. :( well, if y’all think of me, pray for me. :)

heh, after i showed randy this video, he sat there for a second and then said, ‘it makes me want to hold his hand’. i love my little brother. <3 :}

and i’ll taste every moment and live it out loud – i know this is the time, this is the time to be more than a name or a face in the crowd – i know this is the time, this is the time of my life

ladies and germs, fur coats and top hats, i am pleased to announce the end and the beginning something that has been worked on for over two years.  i am pleased to announce… ::drum-roll::

that i am now, officially done writing my novel! :D

::cymbals clash::

… although it is complete, it is unfortunately not complete in it’s entirety, as i still have to go through and edit it.  very unfortunate.  though it is finished, i’ve only just begun the whole editing process (blegh) and once that is over, my baby is on it’s way to publishing! :)

this may seem like a short silly entry compared to the enormous title, but i like the song, so there. :P

now i just have to figure out a title for my novel…

wahoo! :D

wake me up when september ends

today i embark on a journey.  today, i shall embark a journey that will carry on through the night and i shall make it to my destination when the sun is setting.  folks, today is the day.

today is the day my family and i make our way to mississippi for auditions at belhaven university and interviews with chamberlain hunt.  let me just say this: it’s going to be epic. 

‘me? going to college? Lord, could it be?” i keep asking God.  i remember thinking last year, how am i ever going to go to college? who would want me?  it was rather a depressing thought, i admit.  but, if there was a way to fail the psat, i did it.  and the accuplacer placed me at algebra half.  i just thought that i wasn’t smart enough.  eh, not to say that i’m smart enough yet. ;)  but now look where God has put me!  a college has already accepted me before my senior year was hardly kicking in.  now i just have to maintain my gpa… but hey!  God helped me get this far. :)

daddy is retiring next year, so he has the interview with chamberlain hunt.  i think he is in charge of a christian military boarding school in mississippi.  i hope dad gets the job – he wanted something that required him going into ministry, and this just might be the job! :)

trey is going to be auditioning with me at belhaven.  he will be auditioning for the choir.  i hope he gets it. :)

and i get to see my friends maggie and bekah! :) me thinks i will spend a night with them at their dorm too… anyhow, i just can’t wait to see them.  i’ve missed them so much!

now, for the college auditions, i’m going to audition for their theater program (because that is what i want to minor in) and their choir (because it comes with a scholarship! :D).  i’m so nervous.  i keep reviewing my little monologues and looking over my music.  i’m determined to get everything right and not mess up.  doesn’t mean i won’t mess up – i think that’s what i’m nervous about.  that and what if they don’t want me in either program?  i just keep praying and trusting that God will put me where he wants me.  thankfully, i’m not the only one praying that i can get these auditions done well; my wonderful family and my friends (oh, what the heck… i’ll call them family too. :) are praying for me too! :)  i seriously don’t know where i’d be without their ceaseless prayers and encouragement.
