and that concludes my walk down memory lane.  i hope you had more fun.

the other day i was going through a bunch of pictures on my computer, and i got really nostalgic…most likely because i haven’t gotten to see much of anyone for the past couple months.  so here are some of my favorite pictures (from my computer) from the last couple years of some of my favorite memories with some of my favorite people (in somewhat chronological order). there were a lot, so i split them up. got that?

 here’s the first half.

i’ll post the rest later.  i hope you had fun.

this is me and my twin cousin when i was two or three. 
i miss being little.

this lady predicts that in two decades, the west coast will fall off and atlantis will reappear.  we will all live in domed cities, and all houses will have third floors with peel-back roofs for hovercrafts.  she also says that aliens will invade our planet in five years and “they will teach us how to use anti-gravity devices again, such as they did for the pyramids.”. 

on her website, her proof that she’s really a psychic is that robert blake was found innocent like she predicted.  those 50/50 chances can be hard to figure out i guess.

in other news, i have no life.

it’s going to snow this weekend, so you should all get your complaints ready. 
it’ll be warm again soon, i promise.

so i decided to change things up again on here.  i hope you like it. 
if you don’t, wait until my fickle tastes do their job.   orrr something.



this is my friend that is a goose.  i met him (or her..how do you know?) at the park on sunday night.  i need help naming my friend.  give me ideas.

if the current weather was a person, i’d give him/her a hug.  it’s making my feeling better just that much easier.

i don’t really have anything to say.  the world is kind of running by while i sit here with vestibular neuronitis.  i’ll return to life soon enough though.  you just watch out.

and for the record..i don’t know what i ever did to the spider species, but i think it’s out to get me.  spiders are haunting me (and only me) in almost every room of my house.  ONLY ME.  nobody else sees them.  ever.  do they make spider traps?  someone let me know, pleeeease.

that explains my thought process tonight. ^

i don’t even know. 
i think i could blab for hours, but i don’t necessarily want to.
so eager, yet so flustered.
so hopeless, yet so hopeful.
so determined, yet so feeble.
so mentally stagnant, yet so insane.
learning to trust, trying to understand.
gaining hope while trying to stay afloat.

His joy comes with the morning in more ways than one.


where truth and flesh collide,
(in my heart) be glorified.
…and You cover me.

does anyone else get really bothered when a single person says “we’ll see ya”?  i’m forced to imagine the person believing he or she has an imaginary posse.  or something.

so i went to a specialist today.  i got good and bad news.


the good news is that nothing is seriously wrong with me.  i have what i thought i had (vestibular neuronitis)…a nerve in my head that connects the ear to my brain was affected during a cold or something that i had in february.  since ears tell our brain where we are in space, my system of balance was thrown off when this nerve got affected…which brings on the dizziness and nausea (vertigo) when i try to do things. 

the bad news is that nothing can really be done to speed up the recovery.  it could still take several more weeks for this to be gone.  i go back in six more weeks to make sure i’m better, and if it’s not, they’ll check for other things. 

so…now i need to worry about figuring how i’m going to get it together to finish the last couple weeks of school. 

prayer is still appreciated more than ever.  prayer for patience, prayer for recovery, prayer for school, prayer that i can understand what God is doing in my life. my schoolwork, my ability to be in church, my recording, my job, and the rest of my life has been put on hold, but i know there’s a purpose.

i cannot express how faithful God’s been to me time and time again in the past several weeks.  my faith has been so ridiculous, but He’s taught me how to trust.  He’s teaching me how to wait, and He’s teaching me about His grace. 

it looks like i still might not get to see people for a while.  unless i get visitations.  or unless people want to go to parks and lay in the sun with me.  or just call.   



i’m so over this.

i know i post a lot of pictures of the sky, but i have an obsession.
or maybe it’s more of a fascination. 
if you don’t like the sky, i’d suggest staying indoors.


i give the weather this weekend a fifty on a scale of one to ten. 

i’m slowly getting back to my old self again.  some days are better than others, but i’m starting to remember what it’s like to feel good.  i still need prayer, but God is unbelievably faithful.  summer is so close, but yet so far.  

does anyone like newsies?  i miss it a lot, and i think i want to find the dvd. 


nobbin’ wit all da muckety-mucks
I’m blowin’ my dough and goin’ deluxe

ain’t i pretty
it’s my city
