If a friend started reading your journal today, what would you need to fill them in on so they could understand what you're writing about?

I haven't written in it today, but if they were to read what is already in it, I think I'd need to fill them in on a lot. *rubs forehead* A WHOLE awful lot xD You see, I don't really write in a story-coherent way. It's more like, "This is how I'm feeling..." every so often it's "This is what I'm learning..." and it is also heavily saturated in rants. - smiles slightly at the idea of someone trying to decode my journal -

Do you think people deserve second chances?

A loud, definite, resounding YES.
If not - *shakes head*.....
I'd be dead. God allowed me to go through some stuff, but He never let me get out of control enough to deprive myself of life.
God led me through it, whether I knew it or not. And He has given me SO much more than I deserve. I cringe, and several emotions play, thinking of everything. Greatfulness. A certain kind of shame. Because I *know* I don't deserve it. It's almost painful, the shame and gratitude and a love all mixed together. I could cry just from the overwhelming impact of it all.

We're all 'entitled' to life, in a way. We come to think of it as a right that's just kind of there.
"You're alive!"
"Uhm, no duh?"

But for mine I've realized just how much I'm greatful for it. THANK YOU, God, for giving me two lives.

What I would've been missing...!!

I don't know if anybody will really understand this post besides myself.
But....-smiles-....even if you don't....just take it as a reminder to be overflowing with a feeling of being blessed - "just" for living.
Look at a tree and see the bark, the leaves, the veins. The colors. The strength.
It's not just a tree anymore.
Life is so much more than we give it credit for.

If there's any way to be "in love" with a song, then boy, am I there!

"Far Away," by Nickelback.

One of the best songs...EVER! I grin like a maniac when it comes on the radio and get all hyper. Yet when I play it at home from AOL Music or YouTube, I just give a huge, 'romantic' sigh. I have pretty much only girls on my list, so I'm sure you'll all know what I mean. It's just like, "Oh, wow...that's so incredibly, make-you-want-to-squeal sweet!" You know what I mean, when you just want to go, "EEE!" instead of just going, "Awww."

Because with a great song like that...you can't just say "Aww." I mean, I can't for one. Don't know about y'all. But you should all totally look it up and listen to it. Watch the video, too. Though it made Amanda and I cry when we watched it together. And I had seen it before! I don't know why I still cried, but I did! It's sweet. Beyond sweet can describe. *goes into all sorts of poetic words*

But yeah.

Seriously.

Check it out.

You're missing out on one of life's most important things if you don't.

How is it important?

I'unno. xD

Cause I said so? *shrugs*

Post a picture in my comments of what you think describes me when you think about what or who I am.

Give no written explanation, just an image (or a link to an image, if you prefer).

Then, copy and paste this into your own journal and see what others think about you in pictures!

 

I may have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome,  so I won't be on a lot - but hey, you can't miss me too much because I'm never on anyways, right? *eyeroll*

To anyone who has not seen this video, I urge you to please not ignore this post.
Please post a comment or something so I know that it's not just being passed over.

Amanda had an appointment today for a glucose test. It was earlier than Tirzah wakes up, so I sleep-watched Tirzah while Amanda went to the test, so that she didn't have to be awakened, and thus be fussy for the rest of the day :P

The first nearly-a-week of school has gone great. I actually enjoy it. It's going SO much faster now that I am only doing half-days of math and not getting so discouraged from it. Science is easy so far. I'm studying taxonomy xD I can recite the narrowings-down of species, etc. correctly, if I'm not mistaken...

Kingdom
Phylus (sp?)(animals) or Division (plants)
Class
Order
Family
Genus
Species

I half-pity those who must come up with exactly where a new species is on this ladder....

 Please, I beg all of you, watch this video. It's not about fun or a band or any of those things, but it IS about what will be affecting our lives for the next 4 to 8 years. Knowing that, wouldn't you want to do what you can to make it a good 4 to 8 years? Please, please, don't let this happen....

He has said that the first bill he will pass will be to make all abortion legal. Don't think that things will change and be better than what's shown on the video.


If you can watch the baby at the end, crying and screaming, left to starve or die from fatigue, without crying yourself or feeling any sympathy....this world is doomed.

Yes, it's August.
And I'm writing about November.
But have you the slightest of ideas how quickly the wind of time blows by?
(Wow, I can't believe I said that!!)

Anyways, I think I'm going to join NaNoWriMo this year. Actually, really, join it. Not just join, post 400 words, then delete them all in frustration. I want to actually try to DO this thing.
So...

Hints? Tips? Facts? Sandwiches? o_o
