I have switched from “pending” to officially accepted into UCF’s Teaching Academy. There’s no point in going back now. I’m kind of relieved, actually. Happy… :) But now my ever-forehead-wrinkling question is…. How fast do I push through, and should I add a minor? UGHHHHH. So many factors, so many emotions.
How I Met Your Mother
is my guilty media pleasure right now…. oh man. It makes me laugh all the time.
It’s interesting, the kind of people you meet in the workplace. All sorts of ages, shapes, sizes and colors, some with funny accents and some with funny clothes. You memorize their names and faces soon enough, and learn to carry on conversation. But where does it go? I’ve been working at JCPenney for about a month and a half now, and so far, I kind of like it. I have run into so many...
Smiling under a ridiculous cloud of blessings that’s hanging over my head. God is so good.
Tumblr is my safe world where I am forever sixteen and uncorrupted by disappointment and adulthood. That’s why I still keep it, even though I don’t use it much anymore. Sometimes, I just need a half hour to think like myself, by myself.
Can't.... Find..... Dress.....
Got a friend’s wedding tomorrow. Super stoked, because these people are awesome and it’s going to be a phenomenal party! And I finally get to attend a wedding with a date :) Problem is… I can’t find a dress. I spent four hours scavenging through the mall and found nothing. I made an impulse buy at Ross on a pretty dress, but it’s slightly too big and it doesn’t...
Today I'm Thankful For....
While we were at the beach yesterday, David lost his wallet. It had everything in it… including his SSN card. We retraced our steps everywhere in Cocoa Beach, and even tore his car apart at least five times, but he never found it. He got a call late last night… Cocoa Beach police had it. :) nothing missing, except for six measly dollars. GOD IS AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEE

Saturday Night Blues
I’m legitimately relaxing from work with a glass of wine (albeit strawberry). It’s a nice warm way to fall asleep, particularly when my emotions are crumbling unreasonably crumbling, for no particular reason. I’m so tired, my body hurts and I want to cry. Being a girl definitely lives up to its reputation. Nine hours of work. That’s a long time. Not that I’m...
Just the word “summer” makes me feel warm and relaxed. I love letting the sound of it roll off of my tongue, taking a deep breath of the Florida air and blinking slowly when sunshine cuts a path through the clouds. It’s only April 23rd, but I know summer when I feel it. It’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming… I’m sitting at my favorite coffee shop,...
Fish Are Friends
I had a dream the other night that I was on my way to Walmart to buy myself a fish. My dream-self was unreasonably excited about this conquest. But I woke up before I could complete the mission, and spent most of my morning suffering from an irrational and unexplainable desire to have a pet fish. I don’t like fish. I have a record of at least seventeen fish homicides under my belt, all of them...
For You are my lamp, O Lord; the Lord shall enlighten my darkness. For by You I...– 2 Samuel 22:29-33, 47.
It bothers me
that the Disney Princess costumes are becoming more human-looking…. come on. They’re supposed to look like their movie selves. That’s what makes them so amazing. Anyone can adapt a ball gown to resemble Belle. But to have the exact curls, fabric color and gatherings of the skirt as the original Belle? Now that’s impressive. That’s magical. Even Disney is...
Semester. Almost. Over.
So close…. just a few weeks. And then my summer can commence, complete with trips to the gym, lots of work, excessive time at the beach, tanning on my roof, girls nights and dates in between. I might even finish a few books…. get a little deeper into my Bible. I know summer resolutions usually disappoint, but I realized recently that if our resolutions fall through, it’s almost...
545 vs. 300,000,000 People
Charley Reese’s final column for the Orlando Sentinel… He has been a journalist for 49 years. He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN. This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining...
Jesus, can You show me just how far the east is from the west?
I’d like to be productive and do everything I said I’d do tonight, but let’s face it. I just don’t have it in me tonight. Good night, Tumblr.
At the crossroads
Semester ends in three weeks, and absolutely everything is scattering like the ripped up bits of an irrelevant letter. I’m not entirely depressed…. just in that moment of reflection and trying to understand things. I feel a long-overdue rant coming. See ya soon, Tumblr. I’ve got some things to try and figure out.
