This is my first post and the blinking cusor is intimidating. In front of me is a beautiful blank canvas and I am expected to fill it with my thoughts and my mindless wonders. My computer obviously shows no sympathy, the cursor just blinks and blinks (I think it's mocking me)... But if we want to get deep and philosophical I guess the blinking cursor and the blank canvas could be a metaphor for life. (Cheese Alert!!!) We are born so pure, innocent and naive, like the blank text box. We…
I dreamt I stood in a field of grass, the breeze danced gently upon my face and played with strands of my hair.
I was looking towards the west, the field of grass extended all the way to a line of trees, and through the trees i could see the glimmer of sunset on water. I looked behind me and saw grassy hills that gave way to sharp rocky formations which extended both ways around to meet far behind the trees and…
Have you ever thought about what it means when someone walks away from you? Not just that they aren’t beside you anymore, but what it means that they, physically, are no longer near?
In the beginning, there was a big bang. Well, it was more like a big swell. The universe expanded from a tiny singularity into the vast and largely empty expanse that it is today, and it is still expanding. Relatively soon after, atoms began to form, and the force of gravity pulled them… Continue

Lately, I keep hearing, "What has Obama done for the United States? Where is the change that he promised up?" and having this group that keeps coming onto the campus having this picture of having Obama with a Hitler mustache. I am all for free speech, but seriously? Comparing someone to Hitler is a big accustation. What Hitler done is beyond what any of us can imagine. I really want to know what Obama has done to get that kind of reputation with certain groups of people.
I got a great response from everyone in last week's post, which was about bullying. I was sorry to hear that some of you are still bullied, and I want you to know that in addition to being here whenever you need help with regard to the Ning or contacting other Ningmasters, I hope also to be here for you if you ever need someone to listen. Among my group of friends I am the shoulder that all have cried on, and over the years I have learned to be able to give some…
This is going to be a fast one, there's good conversation to be had at the Ning right now and I don't want to miss it.
Today I had dinner with my grandparents. It was tasty, as always. We also visited a few graves and payed our respects. I'll be taking care of the lawn at an apartment they own around the end of June. Should be groovy. Good Memorial Day.
Told you it was a short one.
Thing I like about the past 24 hours: Good times with family.
Thing I… Continue

I originally had every intention of writing two blogs today, but after eating my feast of Chinese food, I kind of passed out. So, instead I am going to repost my FiveAwesomeBloggers blog (which I finished before dinner):
EEEEEK I'm running a bit late with this one. i think it still counts though. Gawd it is so flipping hawt today in my house. It's like hank's song. ITS TO HOOOOOTTTT! I can't sleep its so hawt. Though i was falling asleep listening to Comin' Home by City and Colour. Dallas Green is just flipping amazing. His voice is beautiful and his lyrics soulful. Listening to that song put me into a peaceful trance that almost made me forget the unbearable… Continue

Reel Big Fish (“RBF”) is a southern California ska punk band who broke into the mainstream in the mid to late 1990s.
Their debut album, “Everything Sucks” (1995), was an underground hit and led to a deal with Mojo Records, an indie label. “Turn the Radio Off” (1996) established the band in the underground music scene, and they began touring throughout the USA. After the single “Sell Out” began breaking into the mainstream, including MTV, the album made an appearance on the charts.… Continue
Lulipop tagged me to respond to her blong entry here. I'm going to do my best but I should warn my perspectives are a bit contridictory at times coming at things from both a mental health (since that's what I do for a living), moderately religious and older sister points of view. So take from this what you will. * I'll be using 'you' as a collective term for anyone reading this.
Boys went fishing down at the stream
While the girls helped mama make her ice cream
For the big ole picnic in the park on the fourth of july
They carried out the barrel to the pick up truck
And the boys got a catch how about their luck
Ran back home with a big ole carp in hand
But the boys were so excited
And the two groups they collided
And the ice cream fell from those girls hands, right into the sand oh!
So I passed the final benchmark agewise, I reached 21. The age that opens up all the adult oppourtunities, as well as signifies my passage into adulthood. Do I feel any different? Did I have a great epiphany that would show me what I would be doing with my life from this point forward? In all honesty, I don't feel the least bit different. I was wondering what the hype was about 21. Is drinking legally the only thing to look forward to at 21? What is next? If anyone knows, can they please set me… Continue

Really quick entry here.
I'm going to try to apply grammar and spelling rules to this blog, seeing as I don't really put much effort into it.
I'm watching BBAD (Big Brother After Dark) and I just finished watching American Idol, I don't watch it intensely but I definitely want David Cook to win.
So basically i decided i cant type in a proper fashion so im going to stop at this point. I havent been feeling… Continue

Yay my first blog post! I have a feeling I'll be doing more of these as my time gets more un-limited. The topic of this fabulous grand opening post is the Big Climb! It was a sponsored event I did on Sunday to raise money to fight leukemia. And it was really fun (even though I walked up 1311 stairs). The weird part is that now I'm hooked on fundraising events. Like in a few weeks I'm doing to MS Walk. I have no idea how to spell what MS stands for. Or how to pronounce it. But it's Sclerosis of… Continue
