thanks feather… no really… April 22, 2008

this is what I was informed that I needed to do…

Once you have been tagged, you have to write a blog with 10 random things, facts, goals, or habits about yourself. At the end, choose anyone you think may answer – to be tagged, listing their names & why you chose them. You can’t tag a person who has tagged you.

I suppose I will be nice and comply…

1. I want to make a difference… I am not sure how, but I think God’s got some big plans He’s working on, I can tell because my hearts a changin’.

2. I want to go to Autrailia & Eqypt… just for fun… and the Congo to search for dinosaurs… okay yea, and Israel… oh and Antartica… wait does that count as 5??

3. I would like to be more eco-friendly… and I am not saying that just because it’s earth day… but I am a bit stubborn… so I try to do things one step at a time…

4. I miss having a “family”…

5. I really don’t mind helping out at the warehouse… I know I am crazy…

6. I want to be more organized, but I am not… I always think that I will get to be once life settles down… then I wonder… will it ever settle down???

7. I like the Hills… there I said it… I call it youth min research… I have no excuse for my LOST obsession…

8. I am tired of $$ having a reign on my life…

9. I love Namibia, but I really don’t know if I would live there for a long time… I always think I could & I totally would if that’s what God wants, BUT… I don’t think that it is… now… seriously… that’s weird to me… some realizations can catch you off guard… but of course His timing will tell.

10. I always want to live life in the moment and not focus on what the future holds… yet, I want to prepare myself for whatever He has planned… and that takes action.  I need to continually remind myself to take action.

Okay… so now I am supposed to choose some people…  I am choosing people that I know read my blog and putting them in alphabetical order.  If you are not listed and decide to participate, please feel free to leave a comment and let me know. 🙂

things that make me smile… April 20, 2008

okay, so I need to counteract the pet peeves with things that make me smile…

One thing I really love about living around here is driving down the road in the morning and looking up in the sky and seeing a hot air balloon or two or three or… (you get the point) I really love that about living in this town in New Hampshire.  I remember once when I was younger, one landed in my back yard.  That was such a cool day.  So, yea… everytime I see one I smile & think “man, that’s beautiful… how cool is that??”

I don’t think I will have too much in this category, but I find the need to add it…

I am driving along minding my own business, windows down, no music, enjoying the BEAUTIFUL day and suddenly my whole car starts vibrating.  Then I stop at a light and my ears are ringing… bom, bomm, ba-bomm, bom… my entire jeep is vibrating even more… I try to look at the kid sitting in his car at the light behind me, but the picture isn’t clear since his bass is shaking my rear view mirror… my ears actually hurt… I can only imagine how deaf he will be in a few years.  why?? why??

fine… here goes… April 17, 2008

man, they’ve completely changed the posting page since my last post… alrighty then…

So, the friends of mine that I know usually read this thing have requested that I elaboate my last statement… I am going to try and do the “short & sweet” version… yea, you guys know me too well… let’s see how it goes.

I have been discovering much about myself more recently… God has been quite faithful to bring people into my life to help me discover.  I met quite a few new friends in February and I have come to realize that we are all living with similar situations… losses, struggles, annoyances, likes, ect… it’s been pretty wild realizing the parallels.  ANYWAY… I was having a conversation with my friend Claudia… I have to go on a bit of a tangent… this girl is amazing… she gets me… she challenges me and I challenge her… we can speak truth into one another’s lives and we can tell one another anything… and there is no fear of judgement or fear when the other one realizes how crazy we both are… 😉 but the coolest part is that God has truly pre-ordained our friendship… we are only friends because of His hands in our lives.  So, all I can say about that is He truly has something amazing planned for each of us… end tangent…  The two of us were in the middle of one of our long conversations about life and God and… and… (that’s how our conversations go) For some reason, I can not recall how it started, I needed to mention how I started living where I am currently living.  The words that came out of my mouth were “I moved in the day that I died”… and I immediately thought ugh… that explains the past four years… and I immediately covered it up with “the day my mom died” (Claudia didn’t point it out for another 10 minutes, but she was thinking the same as I was). 

So, basically my realization was that I haven’t been living… I have been on autopilot for the past four years.  In many ways I have been doing a pretty good job of hiding it, but my passions have been doused, my creativity has been squashed… So, I’ve decided I need to figure out how to live again. 

The day I died… April 2, 2008

it’s crazy how a slip of the tongue reveals so much about the past 4 years…
