: A lot of times I feel like I’m living in my own world. My world where it is just me and the few I call close friends. My world where everything is busy busy busy. Most of the time though I feel as if I am outside looking in. Looking in to all other groups of life. All other walks of life and all the people who surround me. I still haven’t decided whether it be a good thing or a bad thing, but I suppose that is just how I live life and I’ll continue living it. Everything is so clear when you’re outside on the sidelines.
: Sometimes you feel like all you want is one person to understand. One person to get what you’re thinking. One person to understand the feelings that are flowing through you. One person to get the craziness that just never seems to get out. I find that sometimes there isn’t that one person, but I rejoice in the fact that I always have that one person. That one person who is my best friend and understands everything and His name is Jesus Christ.
"O Lord, You have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue behold, O Lord, You know it altogether." - Psalm 139:1-4
Have you already been accepted into Biola? and if you are planning to transfer into Biola, are you still going to take your SAT and ACT test. Also, how do you plan on transferring into Biola. I ask because I am also a senior in high school who wants to go to Biola, meaning I am stressed and confused. :/
I have not already been accepted because I haven’t applied yet for multiple reasons. I have every answer for you! For the most part haha. Lets be friends and I can totally help you! It is really confusing and hard but not impossible! I still am planning on taking the SATs but probably not the ACTs. The transferring in is a little bit more difficult to explain so again lets be friends and we can go through the process.. I’d be more than willing to help you out:) Just don’t get discouraged!!!
How are you able to do so many things in the day? Do you have a car? And what classes are you taking at PCHS and college? Sorry for so many questions. I'm just amazed with your schedule.
I really don’t know how I am able to do so many things in one day! Ha. By God’s strength that is FOR SURE. I do not have a car. I can’t even drive (not by choice), but that is most definitely something that I’m working on because I need to. Right now I am taking Econ and English 12 at PCHS and then at college I didn’t get into any classes because I have low priority so next semester I am signing up as a college student so I can take all the classes I need to transfer. Don’t worry! I really enjoy questions haha. Coffee also gets me through my schedule haha ask anyone. I’m addicted :|
: It is crunch time. T-minus 8 days until Manchester Orchestra. 18 days until my sister gets married. 23 days until my benefit show. 29 days until my greatest friend/leader gets married. 30 days until I am stress free for about a day. One, two, three GO.
: I really just want to take a moment and say that I am honestly and genuinely so thankful for the amazing mature women of God I know. Every Wednesday morning at Women’s study I always get loved on by the most amazing mothers I have ever met. Women who take me out to lunch or ask me over for dinner just to talk with me. I would just like to thank Karen Williams for being a warrior of prayer and teaching me to trust God no matter what and be a faithful servant of Him. Lisa Custer for being such a fun mom who talks to me about life all the time and who understands that craziness of event planning. Rebecca Nogy who is the most amazing teacher and mentor that I could not live without. She wants to see me do my best at all times and go as far as I possibly can in life. Lastly Mrs. McCook who knows and understands all the struggles that I go through on a daily basis. Without these women I don’t think I would ever have learned what it meant to be a Women of God. Their wisdom and knowledge are from God and you know that God is the foundation of their lives. These are the women of God that I aspire to be one day.
: My health kick is consisting of this: Working out every other day. Antioxidant fruits. SIX small meals a day. Finally staying on the Mediterranean diet.
Let me just say that the thing that is going to be the most difficult is remembering to eat six small meals a day. Good thing I get texts every morning from two friends who remind me of all of these things.
Oh my goodness! I absolutely love the fact that you’re asking me! Well there are many different ways that you can help. I can always use benefit show help! Also I have my own fundraising page here: http://www.stayclassy.org/fundraise/create?eid=7072 and I am a part of the team SoCal Swag which you should be apart of as well! Also Invisible Children has many ideas of helping out just check out their website! http://invisiblechildren.com/homepage. You could host a screening. Tell your friends. Raise money. Honestly the creative possibilities are endless. Talk to me personally and I would LOVE to help you get started:)
: Coffee shops never fail to deliver great conversations with the most random people. I’ve gone to different coffee shops the past three days for my own alone time and God has brought the raddest conversations with the most random people every time. I feel as though coffee shops are THE place to go to if you want someone random and enjoyable to talk to.
I now have new friends to knit with and another band that wants to play for my benefit show.
: Honestly I’d like to just take the time and say that today was the BEST day I’ve had since probably the last day of summer. I wish that I could perfectly describe my day to you, but that would probably take hours. It started off like every Friday morning with my girls group at Neighborhood Cup. We talked SO much about how we just want to start a revival and we feel like that is what God is wanting from us. We talked about how INCREDIBLE it has been in the past four months of us coming together. Lastly we talked about how much God is working with in us individually and as a group. How many prayer requests have been answered and how many opportunities we’ve been given. Right when we were talking about all of this a lady asks us about the bible and God and it was just incredible to hear all of the girls share. That in itself made my whole year. To see how much we’ve all grown and continue to grow. I think it must have been the best girls group yet. God is truly moving with in this group and it is outstanding to see first hand.
Moving on to the rest of my day… I sat at Barnes and Noble for a couple of hours just rejoicing over the fact that OBAMA IS FINALLY DOING SOMETHING TO HELP MY KIDS IN UGANDA. My heart is so incredibly thankful and joyful. It has been something that thousands of people have been working hard for. It has been long awaited for 25 years! I can not tell you in words how this news has utterly changed me. GOD IS SO RAD. In the mists of sitting in Barnes and being a dork some guy was watching me… and I suppose he decided that I was friendly enough to talk to because then I started to talk to him for an hour. I love meeting new people and starting conversations. I think it is very healthy for a human being to do that constantly.
Lastly I went to work where I realized once again how INCREDIBLE God is for providing me such a rad job with such incredible people. My managers are so nice and interested in my life. When people come in it honestly makes me jump for joy to help them. Not to mention Manchester Orchestra, one of my top bands since 6th grade, is playing at our sister location: The Irvine Spectrum and I might have the opportunity to work for the day and help. Finally ending the night with Laser Tag for the sweetest girl’s, Jules, birthday party where I met even more awesome people and had Yogurtland.
It is days like these where I am reminded how rad my life is. How incredible other people can be. How AMAZING God and His work is. And how terribly blessed I truly am. So heres to the beginning of a great weekend!
: Today I must say I have been renewed! I have been refreshed! I have awakend from the haze that has clouded me for so long. Today was a day of remembering everything I love in life. Now I must say that I love the mountains much more than I love the beach, but today I was reminded of how incredibly nice it is to escape reality by the seashore for hours. To sit in God’s creation and be in awe of how intricate and incredible creation is. How evident God is. I went to a secret beach and had the wildest adventure! I was reminded that every single time I tell a new person about Invisible Children I remember all the faces and people I have met from Uganda and how much I need to help them. I remembered that I absolutely love kids and enjoy helping with kids ministry. I remembered that I LOVE absolutely LOVE new friends and getting to know someone much better. I remembered how it is to meet someone and honestly take an interest to be their friend. Lastly I remembered that my life is going to be okay because God has an INCREDIBLE plan for my life. I remembered that HE loves me to the ends of the earth and back and that is really all that matters. I remembered that I am the King’s kid and I wear that title with a humbled heart.
I love the King and the King loves me. I love the King and the King loves me. I love the King and the King He loves me.
