This would be the reason I haven’t blogged in almost a week. Things have been kind of crazy where I live. Overall, my hurricane experience has been rather pleasant, though (as weird as that sounds). It barely rained by my house. There was no flooding. Mostly, there were some strong winds. The neighbors who live behind my house had a huge tree fall from their yard and onto part of...

Sit and watch the stars, realize in the stillness what hopeful can mean.– Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson (via tylerknott)
I have two fine arts electives to fill this semester aside from my student teaching, and this course is one that I have chosen. I’m pretty excited about this because I think it will be a good challenge. I’m used to writing what I know. I either share a real story, research something, or let my opinion/thoughts loose. But I never really take a great deal of time to go to that place...
Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.– Anne Frank
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we...– John Lennon
Instyler: for awesome curls
Okay. Let’s get this straight right away… I am not here to promote products, no one pays me or asks me to do so, etc. This is me simply offering you some advice on how I do things. A lot of people in my everyday life often ask me how I get my hair to curl the way I do. Kind of like this… (I took this picture a long time ago, when I first started using the Instyler, to show how...
It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone...– Eartha Kitt
BOOKS: I want your opinion!
I’m a reader. I love books. I don’t think I will ever get around to reading everything that I would like to, and still there never seem to be enough pages breathing on my bookshelf. Don’t think about sending me into a good bookstore with any amount of money in pocket because I WILL buy some book that I really don’t need to add to my collection any time soon. Pretty much...
Joy: The Fight vs. The Dance →
Here is what I’ve got for you today… I love Jon Foreman so much. I can’t say that I know him personally, which is rather unfortunate because I wish so badly that I did, but I do know that his words and music and expression of himself bring me so much inspiration and motivation to be a better person… in a way that is extremely rare these days. I find great inspiration in...
Where there is love there is life.– Mahatma Gandhi
Happy Feast Day of the Queenship of Mary!

Top 10 Cover Songs on my iPod
Okay, so here it is. I promised I would put more of myself out there (only just a few hours ago, as a matter of fact). I figure this is both a good and simple way to start. One of those “fresh” ideas that I was talking about is to do Top 10 lists from time to time. We can cover a lot of ground that way, and it gives you some of my personality alongside my voice. Today’s Top...
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is the...– Psalm 118:22-24
One day, you’re 17 and you’re planning for someday. And then quietly, without...– (via anthroph0bia)
Hello, there. I feel like it’s been a really long time since I honestly came on here and said that. “Hello.” Blogging for me lately has become a way to post (and mostly re-post) bits and pieces that reflect who I am and what I’ve got going on in my life but never really speak anything with my voice. Does that make sense? I hope it does. The truth is… Life is...
