Weee I'm 19.

I turned 19 on friday- the 20th. I wanna highlight some stuff I got the week of my birfday.

The necklace is from dad, and has my name on the cross.
The orange sweater is from my Mommy. And it's Fuzzy.
The little bear an rabbit things came from Grandma Irene...we'll see where they wind up after I move back home.
The Disney princesses tin came from walgreens. It's my change thing.

Thats the last of my birthday news. There is some businesses to be attended to.

Willis-Willis wins the first to tell my happy birthday, as well as the first to call me on my birthday.

Brandon- Brandon wins the first person to suggest that I spent my birthday breaking the law.

Dani- Dani wins first person to blog about my birthday.

Kayla-Kayla wins the first person to text me happy birthday.

Now Dani and Kayla are in disagreement of who is most important in all this. Kayla says she is the most important because she is my text buddy. Dani says that she's a cripple and should win. I, however, have posted the facts, and will let them fight it out from here.

Eating Disorders Awareness Week!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 22nd- the 28th of February is eating disorder awareness week. So spread the word.

These are just a couple images you might see around your towns and college campuses. Other than that I really don't have much to say. For more details about NEDA awareness week go here.


"I wonder how things might have been different."

This is not my post secret of the week, however I do wanna talk about it. I've wondered this a lot about friendships, and jobs, and all kinds of stuff. And I think lots of poeple have.

But of all the things I've learned in the past 4 years is that, whatever could have happened, but didn't- does not matter, not in the least bit. I don't so much believe that everything happens for a reason, but that in Gods' power he can make everything beautiful and worthwhile. I only see this after seeing my fantastic friendships, the ones that if one thing had been changed, one variable different, then they would not be so good now.


My phone is dead. I ordered a battery for my back-up phone today. So probably two weeks at the most before I have a cell phone again. In the mean time, lets analyze what I've lost with the loss of my cell phone.

A) Communication....with everyone.
B) My alarm clock
C) My phone numbers....all of them, except my moms cell, which is the only number commited to memory.
D) My saved text messages. Like the one that said "What? You want me to come pitch a tent off campus to make sure that you'll be ok."

I'll keep you updated on the status of my cell phone.

Hey kids,
I have several things that I have been meaning to blog about, but am a slacker. The first is The National Hopeline. There have been two suicides in Vincennes, Indiana in the past couple of weeks. One if them was a Vincennes University student and the other was a Clark Middle School teacher. So this is an ideal chance for me to talk about Hopeline, again. WEEE!

The National Hopeline is a suicide hotline. It is free confidential and non-government owned. The non-government owned bit is pretty important. It pretty much means that its records are cleared out every thirty days. It’s 1-800-suicide or, 1-800-2433. Suicide is never the answer. If you are thinking about suicide please reach out to someone, a pastor, teacher, counselor, or a parent.

One more thing, I will be in Mississippi in less than one month. I have this to say about Mississipi.
"It captures you. It makes you see beauty in the breakdown of everything. It shoes you kindness in poeple who hardly have enough for for themselves, but are more than willing to share what little they have. And do so, so gracefully, that it makes you wanna be like them. The poeple are seared in your mind. You can't get their actions, or their hardships out of your mind. Despite everything that they have gone through, they still manage to smile and give thanks at the end of the day."

Obama signed the Equal-Pay act!!!!!!!!!!

Read me.

The equal pay act. Can I get a woot?

Epworth forest never changes.

Notice the couch/loveseat in this picture. It was taken in 1986, at Epworth Forest, I think in McKendree, but don't quote me on that,it's a lodge for reals though.

Anyway. Those couches are still alive and kicking. It's kinda scary how not comfortable they are actually. So they've been around for 20 plus years, I bet when they were bought, Jesus still had thumbs.


"Would you like to have brief, surface level, interpersonal relations with me, perhaps in that broom closet?"
