Good night everyone hope the Holidays are treating you so well.

Blog IT. I will be blogging soon I hope. I have for some reason not been able to sleep tonight. Maybe because all my lights are on...I think it is time for a melatonin....I'm going to hate my life tomorrow...

food for thought?

I don't know what to say other then:
I am at a crossroads in life. It isn't your typical crossroads.
It been a week since I met someone insanely awesome and literally left it at that. No contact and i think of him. Pray he is doing well and keeping his awesomeness.
Crazy how you can meet someone for 10 minutes and they leave the biggest impression on you, for life.


My song at the moment...well her whole CD but yeah

You hold your head up to the sky
You say,
"What kind of blue are you, are you"
Then you ride your pony round and round
It's digging a hole right through
Right through

You stumble down a yellow brick road
Spinning your shoes in the air, the air
Then you hold your breath and count to nine
Hoping that soon somebody will find you
Find you

Go on, go on, go on
The stars are watching
Just say, just say, just say
What you're feeling
You know, you know, you know
You gotta take a bow and do it your way

It's okay
La da da
Da da da
Da da da

It's okay
La da da
Da da da
Da da da

You're fifteen miles over the speed
You're going fast as you can
Off to your daydream, o-oh
On your mark, get set
Hurry away or have a serious talk with your champagne
O-oh ay

Go on, go on, go on
The stars are watching
Just say, just say, just say
What you're feeling
You know, you know, you know
You gotta take a bow and do it your way

It's okay
La da da
Da da da
Da da da

It's okay
La da da
Da da da
Da da da

It's time for you to prove
Within your ruby shoes
You deserve a smile with no regret
Look at you
Kicking off your shoes
Dancing for the world to see
You got the power to believe
Now open up and see
And go be free and fly away

Go on, go on, go on
The stars are watching
Just say, just say, just say
What you're feeling
You know, you know, you know
You gotta take a bow and do it your way

It's okay
La da da
Da da da
Da da da

It's okay
La da da
Da da da
Da da da

It's okay
La da da
La da da

It's okay
La da da
Da da da
Da da da

once in a lifetime night

I met an awesome guy. He started out as a stranger in the river. But by 5:30AM then next morning I had a hope and new sense of hope for my romantic life.
There is a reason for everything and the reason behind that entire night of talking to someone and meeting him was one huge hold of hope I can now hold onto.

All I can say is he was a pretty awesome dude, with a huge HUGE heart, respectful self morals, incredible aspirations, intelligence, and determination to make a mark in the world. Not to mention great looking above all lol.
What a great night of talking. Meeting a guy and returning home with hope for a satisfying love is a pretty awesome feeling that just leaves you with such an incredible feeling.

A wonderful week in Heaven

I have to mention here I have spent the last week at Camp For All, PHEver 2011.

A few of my campers have graduated and it was hard to see them graduate. I love them so much.
After an amazing week of fun, laughter, and memories me and afew counselors headed for a little R&R at the Guad & Comal river.

and now my apartment is an absolute disaster and i have so much to do on top of work.

a feel a beer will be in order every night this week. Since I am headed back to camp on Saturday for another camp. :)

This song is sticking to me right now. I feel as I get older and i know I am making better and wiser decisions for myself, It is like Freckles.

"Freckles" by Natasha Beddingfield

I used to care so much about what others think about
Almost didn't have a thought of my own
The slightest remark would make me embark
On the journey of self doubt
But that was a while ago
This girl has got stronger
If I knew then what I know now
I would have told myself don't worry any longer it's OK

'cause a face without freckles is like a sky without stars
Why waste a second not loving who you are
Those little imperfections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable,
They show your personality inside your heart
Reflecting who you are

Who you are
Who you are
Who you are

I wondered if I could trade my body with somebody else in magazines
Would the whole world fall at my feet?
I felt unworthy and would blame my failures on the ugliness I could see
When the mirror looked at me
Sometimes I still feel like the little girl who doesn't belong in her own world
But I'm getting better
And I'm reminding myself


Reflecting who you are
Reflecting who you are
Whoooooo whoa hmmmm oooooo


Reflecting who you are

not to mention I have many freckles on my face. Which a kid at work told me the sun loves to give me kisses. X-D it was cute.

Too Blessed to be depressed

Cabin Fever...
I have noticed a lot of people suffer, including myself suffer from cabin fever in the winter. Precisely around Feb. when we have a week of being inside trapped by snow.
Now it is July and I am noticing the depression wave over people. However as people and patrons of this town and my world have chosen to hate and dwell on little things, I choose the high road. Hate will get you and I have been held back by something that I love and appreciate more than I will ever know.
I can not sit here and let life pass me by while I dwell on somethings that are so small compared to the world he has provided us.
I choose not to be here, dwelling. I have set goals for myself and where I am in life I have no REASON or excuse to not be depressed. God has provided me with numerous opportunities to share his love with everyone and anyone I can.
I am happy to say I will be at Camp For All twice this summer. Widening my love for ARC of GH and Camp Champions. This year will mark my two year anniversary of my tattoo on my wrist and I can not say it has ever let me down. As a reminder to myself that I am very VERY lucky in life to be just with PKU as people see it as a burden in my life I see it as an abler. I know a handful, well more, of Adults and teens and children now who all see having PKU differently but I have to embrace and know God made me beautiful in his eyes, for he has a path in which I will take.

With this I leave you with Addison Road lyrics: Always Love (as made famous by: Nada Surf)

To make a mountain of your life
Is just a choice
But I never learned enough
To listen to the voice that told me
Always love? Hate will get you every time
Always love? Don?t wait til the finish line

Slow demands come 'round
Squeeze the air and keep the rest out
It helps to write it down
Even when you then cross it out

But Always Love? Hate will get you every time
Always Love?Even when you wanna fight

Self-directed lives
I want to know what it?d be like to
Aim so high above
Any card that you've been dealt, you...

Always Love? Hate will get you every time
Always Love? Hate will get you?

I've been held back by something
Yeah. You said to me quietly on the stairs,
I've been held back by something
Yeah. You said to me quietly on the stairs.
You said?
Hey, you good ones.
Hey, you good ones.

To make a mountain of your life
Is just a choice
But I never learned enough
To listen to the voice that told me...
Always love?hate will get you every time
Always love?hate will get you?

I've been held back by something
Yeah, You said to me quietly on the stairs,
I've been held back by something
Yeah, You said to me quietly on the stairs
You said..
Hey, you good ones
Hey, you good ones
Hey, you good ones


been a while.
Jeanette has indigestion...

I love her.

My heart.

My heart goes to those in Alabama and the other states who have met with devastation.
I just wish we would all stop focusing on the royal wedding and donate, volunteer and do what we can for our Home land devastation.

Oh boy oh boy I am procrastinating so bad. I do not want to go to work. I need to tell my boss I will not be there tomorrow....oops.

At this moment they are doing the deed and i am right next to our shared wall quietly working on homework.
Well now I have to listen to some kind of music.
Got to love apartments (full of complete sarcasm)

North Texas fires

For those of you not in the Texas area North Texas is facing some crazy wild fires and harsh aggressive winds. I just wanted to ask and along side send out my prayers to those families of the parished firefighters, the wounded, and the homes that have been lost. Any my prayers and thoughts are with the thousands of firefighters fighting the blazes. I pray for their strength.

laundry mat...people of laundry?

anyone encounter interesting things while doing laundry?
I can now say that I have.
a woman who talks to herself, a lot...
a older woman wearing see-through tights (nothing over) yikes.
a thug and his daughter

This makes me contemplate what their everyday lives are like...

Monday Mingle.


This Weeks Questions:
1. Did you watch Extreme Couponing? What are your thoughts?
2. What is the sales tax amount in the city/county you live in?
3. Did you finish your taxes yet, or do you wait until the April 15th deadline?
Without further a a due, my monday Mingle:

Comment on my Blog to let me know what your thoughts are on Sin Taxing Sodas and Fast food.
I know someday I rely on Fast food to get food in my body (not so much nourishing food) so I can get to work on projects or something.

Carob Cookies...

I spent the weekend working on a cooking assignment. Recipe modification. Chocolate chip cookies, cake flour instead of all purpose flour and carob chips instead of chocolate chip, and egg replacer instead of real egg. It was a lot of hard work, so props to chefs who can do this so easily and on a whim.
This evening I spent time to do a little research on Airport parking. Reserved my "spot" at the parking spot and I am all set (minus a mountain of laundry) to go home friday.
I miss my parent so much, its been four+ months since I have seen my dad and 3 since I have seen my mom. i am happy to have this airplane ticket, spot reservation, and Easter at home to look forward to this week.
This week I will be praying more giving thanks to God for all the amazing meals he has given me and helped me stay alive. Also challenge for me is to find time to go to the library or sit at the table and actually study Chemistry so I can Ace my last exam and hopefully ACE my final exam. With my awful exam grade, I had a dream she was wrong and corrected my wrongly marked answers giving me an A. I can dream, I can dream.
Church was a great message today. Makes me want to make that dedication to be a Mature Christian.
How was everyone else's weekend? I feel like I speak to nobody but myself since I do not get any responses. Oh well at least I am fully aware of how my good weekend went.

Praise God in the good and bad things in life. They are there for a reason and you should glorify God for his amazing capabilities!

Top 5 songs....

Top 5 Songs I suggest you
5. "Get it right" - Glee Cast
4. "Never Alone" - Barlow Girl
3. Brooke Fraser- "Shadow Feet"
2. Addison Road- "This Little Light of Mine"
1. Francesca Batistelli- "This is the Stuff"

Reasons why
#5 Yes it is a Glee song, but i feel the lyrics are just something we can all relate too in trials and errors, failing and coming from that. Definitely another song that lets you know you are not alone in the trials of life. I have posted the video of this performance from the show on my blog in an early post.
#4 The powerful trio has a number of songs that captivate me. however this song I feel talks about when you feel so alone He is still there and you are never alone. It has a great rock beat so if you are ok with worshiping with a hard rock beat (def not screamo) this is a great hard song.
#3 Her lyrics alone are captivating. It is one of those great worship songs that when you feel the world is against you alone. This song reminds you God is your Rock, He makes all things new. Great song to lift your spirits reminding God is there for you when you are hurt and even when you are not hurting.
Brookes website
#2 This weekend I intend to get deeper into the bible study they have on their webpage but this song is an extraodinary song. It helps open up your heart and give you a deeper meaning of that song you sang in bible school when you were little. God gave us light, he gave us joy. Just remember this song when you wake up in the mornings this spring and summer, and give thanks to God for that Promise the sun will rise everyday (even on cloudy days it rises).
Addison Road Website
Their bible study posted on this song

#1 Francesca has on her Website reason why feels this song is so important and how it relates to life. In the interview she states how it is a list of things we all have come across in life. I feel it is a constant thing we need to remind our selves that we have the option of turning great mistakes, and mishappens into wonderful lessons God has placed in front of us. So whether you want to dwell on what has been placed in front of you or if you choose to seek the reason why God placed this extra-ordinary event into your life, or even small event such as losing your keys. Next time think WHY is this event, I see as awful, happening to me. What is it the purpose of this in my life, God? I highly recommend this song on days you feel like everything is going "wrong" when in fact God placed it there and it is just "right". Don't forget how big you are blessed and praise God.
Francesca's website

Hope you guys enjoyed this and enjoy the suggestions. Please do tell me what you thought about my reviews. :) and give me some of your current fav songs at the moment so i can continue to expand my list :)


Had a unGodly dream last night.
Massive sex dream with Dane Cook? anyone want to or care to interpret?
It was odd.


Aside from that awful night

I am just enjoying my time before I head to work in 45.
My chemistry test did not go so well :( That night was straight awful.

Aside from that my ass is studying everything until the final. HAVE to ace the final to possibly pull a B in that class I have a D and a C if the extra credit is added.

Toddler Mistakenly Served Alcohol at Applebees

Toddler Mistakenly Served Alcohol at Applebees

What the? this is ridiculous, bet that server and bartender was fired

blogging under the stars

I wanted to do something different and enjoy the beautiful night. Not a cloud in the sky, had thunderstorms last night but God knew we needed it and he also graced us with a windy but absolutely BEAUTIFUL afternoon and evening. it is so nice and cool outside only thing is the little buggy mosquitoes are making their procreation known. I thought I would share a photo with you I am currently outside sitting right outside my apartment door, where I would place a chair if I have a "porch". these people who created this apartment complex did not realize that hey maybe the downstairs occupants might enjoy some space. Me and my two downstairs neighbors (only three of us down here) have started to make our outside areas a porch like area. I hope to find a took I can till this little area under neath my window and find pretty flowers that do not require sun. My portion does not get sun. :( BUT HEY I have no complaints and my apartment DOES NOT face the east or west! its awesome.

I currently have spring windmills, mini, outside my area. I just need to come up with a few more things to place out here. I was thinking a silver pale with rocks or dirt, and metal paints flowers or crafty flowers. This is obviously a weekend project or a wait till finals are over project. Ha I just noticed my neighbor has a hand tiller! sweet. I see a project in my future. I did however purchase a $1 pouch from target with wild seeds in it and planted them in the large grassy area we have that isn't moved over by maintenance. I can not wait for those to start growing crazy. I love spring.

Thats all I have for my short update on my day and well my current thoughts.

:) Hope everyone had a wonderful Monday and wish you a well Tuesday tomorrow~!
I am going to go plan my weeks menu and pray it keeps me away from fast food (only when I am in dire need to study and strapped for time do I consume)

rain storm

yes it is 12:22 am here in Denton TEXAS and I am currently wide awake to enjoy but also be frightened by this large thunderstorm that has thunder and lightening going crazy.

I think since I can not sleep aside from updating the layout, i will turn out my lights and cuddle with my baby (bailey, dog child) and angry child (fat angry cat) and enjoy this and pray no tornados develop from this..

I am not used to having tornado seasons just hurricane seasons. I do not think i could gather my cat and dog put them in the tub AND fit my mattress over us. yeah i do not see that happening.
Looks like I should prepare a weather kit soon, weekend project. yay.

Are you God's light in the world.

I heard this song on the radio and immediately fell in love with it and its meaning. I wanted to share it with you guys. I also found on the bands webpage (highly recommend checking it out) a bible study to the song as well as the story behind it, I hope to acquire the Dr. Seuss book to kinda help understand the meaning, and have that as a small poem to remind me. One more discovery before I go an amazing Christian Music webpage. 
Here is the bible study posted on their webpage: Addison Road

Matthew 5:14-16

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

In the middle of winter, everything looks dark and dreary. The morning comes, your alarm ringing, and all you want to do is switch it off to stay nice and warm inside your bed, asleep all day. The days are shorter, the skies duller, and with these changes, we feel a change within ourselves. The signs outside tell us we don’t have much hope for a beautiful day. On the other hand, when we wake up on a warm summer morning, we feel energized. We can’t wait to go outside and play, to live and laugh and love. The difference between these two days is rather simple: it’s the light.

When we look at the world as a whole, we see a lot of darkness. Even watching the news at night shows us all the bad things happening around us. We have many reasons to fear and feel despair. Just as a lack of light drowns us in winter months, the darkness of the world discourages us. We are all searching for something to allow us to believe in a better tomorrow.

Fortunately, as Christians we do have something to believe in. Christ is the bearer of hope. He brings us a reason to live, an optimistic outlook. We are all given the light of Christ. He dwells within each of us, burning inside bright. “There’s a fire inside you burning with hope.”

It’s great to have the light within us, but just as Matthew 5:15 says, we don’t “light a lamp and put it under a bowl”. We are called to share our light with the rest of the world. For when light comes into the room, it casts out all shadows and darkness. We can bring light into this dark world and be a shining example of God’s love. When we do this, we can make the bitter winter a beautiful summer. “Some shine bright, some shine small.” Which one do you want to be?

jupiter drops? I mean house!

I am here at a local coffee shop that I recently read bad reviews on it.
Aside from purchasing an overpriced, over sugary tea smoothie and its over loud environment, it does have free wifi and has a HUGE diversity of people here. I am ok with that. However I am definitely regretting the $4 something I spent on this crap load of sugar that I do not enjoy It was in NO way fresh and wish I spent the $4 on something fresh and delicious to fill the pit in my stomach that is growling. grrrrrrrrr....

I am kind of at a place in my FB idleness of what to do. I definitely have to find new ways to procrastinate. Like my Blog for example. Dragging out research. IF you know of a kick @$$ woman you grew up watching on TV and admire her. Let me know about her. I do not have enough followers to note anything different. I am writing a paper and trying to give many references on women's involvement in TV and the change through the last 60 years.

Dear Denton;
I am beginning to see a huge wide of "hipsters" and mostly the people who think they are hipsters are just struggling meeting the criteria and look like trash. Very similar to the people who do not know how to eat vegan. I would also just like to state people who just do it, really should acknowledge that they have a privilege, an eating privilege. If I could I would eat it. Obviously if you want to be healthy you just have to be careful about it, meaning eat in moderation.

As Dave Matthews said "crash into me" I have a different seeing of this and it means I am extremely tired I could just crash into my "bed" or "couch" which ever is closer to me. I am just curious as to why I am so tired. HA and a friend wants me to go out tonight, I do not see that happening.

I want opinions on how do you feel when you have closed a book, an issue or argument and moved on for well over a month and someone opens or wants to open that can of worms again because they can not move on themselves? Dreading this. All I am going to say. DREADing very much so.

I am going back to procrastinating with something else.

Thursday, April 7, 2011

almost lasted a week. FB Challenge.

New hair cut.

The facebook login project has briefly ended. I had to login tonight to send a quick message to 5 sisters (one particular) I live near but do not have their phone #s! boo!
Anyways i was only for maybe 5 minutes tops, I didn't browse got things done and logged off. So I would say I am still pretty successful.
I would highly suggest everyone try to not log on to facebook for approx. 48 Hours. You will really begin to realize how much it consumes your life and how many hours you waste on facebook wrapped in others people lives instead of living your own.
I have rediscovered Pandora, gotten homework done! and this weekend I will be writing a paper and doing research as well as some other homework.
I am also planning on returning to church. Its been about 2-3 weeks partially because I've been out of town on Sundays or really needing some severe studying or recovery.
I have started a new music list.
"I'd rather be with you"- Josh radin
A song I recommend. Thank you Pandora. Anyways I really need to pray and hope this melatonin kicks in very soon because I have to get up and not attend lab but taken a computer exam to test out of a class. Hope I do well and do not have to re-take this test. I would prefer NOT to pay for a class that teaches me seriously what I know!

Night everyone. Again I challenge you 48 hours away from social networking and Facebook mostly.

<3 xoxo, ciao.

Tuesday, April 5, 2011


*disclaimer* I really really just wanted to blog and possibly procrastinate. My observations may be too much.

I do not think I have been to a hastings in a long time, years for sure. I am here at the cafe enjoying a chamomile lemon tea. Kinda excited, it needs to cool off. I am very happy to have a computer that is not ridiculously bulky and a bitch to take to class.
Here at the cafe there is this guy who screams "im a frat douche" wearing tinted aviators. His girl he brought is wearing some massively thick eyeliner and nothing else, well clothes, we all hope. lol. He also not to mention smells the aroma of weed. My turn to finally say "keep it independent (?) Denton??" So I look to my left and he has removed the shades to squint and read the drink menu and what do you know he looks about early 40s. What a shocker. And a tshirt that say "tell your gf to stop texting me"

Anyways. I am enjoying living here in Denton. Completely independent and liberal area. By liberal I do not mean the political liberal. Everyone here I know is open minded and everyone I come across embraces the arts in the town and local gatherings. Aside from missing the beach I have come around to enjoying the dry weather here, until I get shocked. I do miss the beach a lot and my parents a whole bunch.
I just feel in myself I have reached a different level of independence in my life. Never did I think I could live on my own and I enjoy every minute of it. I am sure my neighbors wonder why I randomly am shouting, but its usually out of happiness for my dog. lol. I am weird. I do have my quirkiness. I wouldn't be me without it. Now what guy can stand this and thinks i am adorable and perfect can come into my life, any moment?

I am hanging out with a friend (so far) I met last Thursday from a good friend of my from HS. I am glad she lives here and we can hang out. He and I agreed to hang out when we were free at about the same time, that came to about 6 o'clock tomorrow and just a like small hangout nothing fancy yet. Get to know each other than screaming at the bar lol. I learned my lesson with the last guy I met and went on a date with. I am keeping my distance. lol. One day I'll run into him and it will be beyond awkward. An awkward meeting to look forward too! Anyways keeping this tomorrow calm and cool. but excited to hang out. If nothing comes from this a friendship will.

I am still on the hunt for a home church here. It is hard when some churches are so comfortable where they are they can tend to be unintentionally unwelcoming. Just makes it that much harder for me to show any effort towards joining them. Need to establish my home soon, Until then I am praying hard for that to show soon.

For now I have approx. 55 minutes until my hair appointment I am going to go study some more for my exam in food prep. Long day in school tomorrow. :-\ long day, period.

Leave me questions I would be more than happy to fill them out.

Edit: I do have to add some guy just brought a gay man magazine and put it in his friends magazine while he had to get up and walk away for a while. Which brings me to this:
Did any pull any good pranks on you this april fools? I didn't see any or hear about any OR have any pulled on me. I got lucky

the dating post...

In lieu to that dating post last Tuesday. This guy I went on a date with, had a great time with, ended up never calling back after the date (even texting). There are firsts for everything....

Oh well I cut my loss and I'm moving on to the next LOL JK.

rules of dating??

I thought when you enjoy yourself on a date, and express to the other party (numerous time) what a good time you had and thank would follow that up with communication? and conversation?
am I wrong here?

Is there a certain amount of days you fall of the face of the earth?
I need to get out of the house. Geez

my weakness

after a good hour at the gym, 50+minutes on the treadmill....
I am enjoying a small portion of my weakness...

Entering the dating scene

I have officially entered the dating scene.

I have to also claim I have never been in it before. At almost 25 years old, I am pretty proud of that claim.
After two dates, well one casual meeting and one fun date I did not expect it like this.
I felt really awkward having him pay for the dinners and bowling. I couldn't have said thank you enough.

_ Whats your thoughts on the payment situation? _

I also have run out of ideas for dates. I want to enjoy myself but also get to know him. Completely taking out the idea of seeing a movie. Who wants to sit next to someone you want to get to know, and not speak to them for like 2 hours?! I know I don't. SO next question:

_ What would you do for a fun date?? _

I will accept all and any input, Stories are encouraged, tips and pointers, etc!

Hook a sister up!

Any fun meme's out there?!

I am in the search for a new project, a really fun meme to go along with my Monday Mingle.
Any suggestions or good ideas?

GLEE - Regionals "Get It Right" Full Performance

laundry sunday!

An Update.
Well I really enjoyed Monday Mingle last week and will be doing this weeks monday mingle. However I would do it right now but I am at the laundry mat doing my laundry and it is pretty loud. and there are about six kids running around.
I have been able to catch up on my sleep this weekend. I've also been out on two dates. More to come on details of that. Needless to say I enjoy his company and he makes me laugh. So Yes, get excited for those details.
I have a bunch of homework to do today and I am praying I am able to do so and attend church tonight.
I have 4 weeks until I go home! YAY. I am very much looking forward to my trip home to see my sis.daught & mom and hopefully my dad will not be working. I miss my mom and dad a lot. Bailey will have to stay here, too expensive for him to fly with me for like a day and a half. Anyways with all that said: I am so happy I see home in my near future!

Today I will be emailing my TA for chem. To see what her tutoring rates are. With the help of my mom, we will be shoveling out the $$ for a private tutor so I can pass this chem and hold hope for the future chem classes. Fingers cross and pray for me. NOT to mention I have dates this week with the student tutoring center.

Today the weather is gloomy which has set the mood for me today. Its a non stop mist. I am thankful because we need it, I'm tired of smelling grass fires on my walk to school. I would love a good thunder storm though. Heres to hoping the weather man is right for tuesday. Double bonus it is my day off from school. I would be able to enjoy it.
Next week is a busy week at work for me. I am not going to lie when I say I am very excited! I love my job. Incase you don't know what I do. I work on campus in the media communications office making YouTube videos for the Texas Womans University webpage. Just, you know a hobby of mine and I happen to get paid for it. Not a lot but enough for a hair cut once I get paid! Anyways next week the performaning arts school is putting on this arts walk and my boss, another student editor and i get to record it and I will be putting the video together. its a big project for us.
Well as much as I want to just stay on here and blog with you wonderful followers of mine. I need to get started on two extra credit papers (one on legally blonde another on Merriels wedding) and two reading journals. :) yes I get to watch movies and write a page paper for extra credit how awesome!
A Monday Mingle will be here soon!! Enjoy your sunday hope the weather is better for you than it is me and have a fantastic Monday.

Here is your philosophy for the day:

Rock The Red Pump!

The Red Pump Project

Spring is here

I am praying that we have seen the last of winter here in North Texas. And that spring break officially starts  this Friday after food lab is just another reason I can believe the weather will be beautiful for a little bit. I can not wait to put on my shorts and get my legs and skin some color! And possibly be blonde again.

Anyone know how to upload photos from an iphone onto blogger?? I want to be able to make this blogger an ease of access so I post more often rather than sitting at my oh so beautiful imac and blog when I am procrastinating from school work.

I have been extremely tired this week. taking naps...WTF?!? I rarely RARELY take naps but this week i feel its become a kinda ongoing theme, aside from headaches. I am afraid I was just drained of all energy last Friday when I visited and took a wonderful tour thanks to two sisters of mine of Fry St. and what 25 cent well can do to an empty stomach :( no bueno.

Since next week is spring break is here sad to say but my spring break is dedicated to Pioneer Pace 5k training, and school. Yes you read right, school. I have a week and some change to study for Exam #2 in Organic Chemistry, writing reading journals, start research on a term paper, watch extra credit movies for Womans studies, Catch up and study Food Prep & lab, and do some massive damage to my Nutrition book and create many vocab cards...Needless to say, my spring break is a beautiful relationship for school and I. I HAVE to ace all my next tests and finals in order to pull this semester off. HAVE TOO. no if, ands, or buts. I must say hello ADHD meds we meet again. I  hope I can shake all this tiredness off this weekend.

This weekend I am happy to say I am getting back into my favorite hobby of all times, photography. I am shooting a session for senior portraits all over town for a friend of mine. I can not believe she is graduating high school!! I love her. We have plans to check out all of what Dallas has to offer. I am quite excited.

All in all I have to say Denton is beginning to be nice to me. However only downside is, I feel like my neighbors live with me...I hear them so well through these thin walls. Girl behind me hasn';t had her man over in a while, but has taken up guitar and singing. Upstairs I haven't seen her but her addiction with online shopping only continues though she is never home to accept any of the packages and my next door neighbor, seems to be cleaning her place out, but her apartment has been turned inside out, and by that I mean all her stuff is outside...For now, I would like to bid you all a great night.

For now, Spring wishes and girl scout cookie dreams.
<3 out.

*EDIT* forgot to mention I started chatting with my neighbor in Woman studies turns out, she is also 25 (im almost) and is divorced and we are both getting our lives together and enjoying our single status! crazy. Reminds me I am not the only one in my shoes and it comes in a common size, like my real feet.

quick update

It is the middle of the semester I believe.
I am really focusing on getting better grades now that I have fully adjusted.
I quit working at the restaurant for the ridiculous hours they had me working. I however!
at the time of considering quitting, I received a phone call from the first job interview for the campus job.
They hired me, i work 9 hrs a week editing videos!

I have two midterms today and I am scared lol.  I know I haven't studied as much as I should have. But I'm just gonna kick ass on the next two tests and my big term paper in Woman Studies.
I have my act together finally.
I am registering for a 5k put on by the SDA (student dietetic association), I am a member of, I am training kinfa for it 4 weeks to go!
It looks luke because gas is almost at $3.50 a gallon, I will not be going home to Corpus for spring break so it will be me and school and training for my 5k all during spring break.
That is a short update.
:Lauren I need to call you during spring break! I'm sorry!
Have a good Monday everyone.

v-day....suck it.

I have come to terms and know I am capable to say:
"this day is annoying" 

honestly the best word for valentines day. However I do have a romantic relationship with my homework oh and work. ew. Joy.

I get to serve all these people who are "happy" and pretend that everything is ok today. Or the couple who is only pushed to say "i love you" today when it shouldn't be said at all.

Like I said.
This day is annoying. simply annoying.

jobs, tests, snow!

I have finally returned to school today after a wonderful 4 snow days and a weekend. However I returned with my first exam in my Nutrition class and I've learned if i keep up with the readings and focus on vocabulary I will be ok.
This internet teacher is a serious slacker.
I also now work at a restaurant as a server. Its a small restaurant, corporate, but a very small chain.
Not a lot has been going on. other than sucky tips at work, no shifts, class and quizzes and reading.

Job job job

I have a job interview at El Chicos today. Wishing my self luck. Friday job on campus interview!!

Sunday, January 16, 2011


Today God weighed hard on me and I definitely had him speak to me today and release a hard issue I've had on my heart for oh about a year now.
Today I forgave my ex husband for cheating on me. I can't probably also thank the fact I am a positive person and try to lean more on the upside of things. The pastor was going deeper into unanswered prayers and how we have things we just don't expect, its a mercy to us. Well I felt it in my heart. John's affair was God's path for me, like an unanswered prayer.
I know many times in El Paso I prayed to God to help me show me what his path was for me. His affair- There for an answered prayer in disguise. If he hadn't strayed and turned into the awful two-faced creature I thought he was, I would not be here living on my own, in Denton about to start school with all determination in my human being and soul to finish. I wouldn't know who I am and know down in my heart I am meant for more than just my MRS. degree.
With this in the open if John had not strayed from our lifelong commitment I would not be strong as I am today, I would be miserable and in a place holding me from all my future potential he has in store for me.
I am no doubt following God's plan for me. I left John stopped following the army's path for him and I am now on my own path God has created for me.

Things I am now to my answered prayer:
Focused on his plan

I also know over time I will learn more about myself to add to this list, as opposed to stuff I wouldn't know if it wasn't God's plan for me.

So with this realization of, God does have bigger plans for me, I want to take this blog of written words of my life to thank my ex-husband for being unfaithful to me.
I know now that I am meant for bigger and better things. I have the strength to be on my own. I have faith that is as big as God's love and I am not frowned about for having a faith as big as my heart. I know who Andrea is. Thank you for cheating on me, I have no desire to find out why you did what you did, I know the answer to that is it was God's plan for you & me. I wouldn't call our marriage a mistake, it got me here, on my RIGHT path. There for I will never expect you to apologize for cheating on me, it was intentional whichever way you look at it. Just know if for some chance you EVER see this blog, know I do forgive you. What you did can't be forgotten but know I wish him and his new wife and child(ren) the best God has for them. He in a way gave me a big gift and I can't thank him enough for it. He gave me, my life with the Father and my path back.

God put me here to do big things and I thank my Ex-husband for giving me the chance and opportunity to find myself again.

A friend pointed out to me that some women would despise their ex for all that happened and never forgive. Never  ever seeing it was just God answering their prayers and sending them back to their paths he had planned for them.

THAT is how my day has gone so far.
<3 Tater out.

lonely? homesick? or just bored?

I went on my official first day of job hunting today. shesh, you think a college town someone would interview you right on the spot but I guess not. I am hoping if no one calls (holding hope someone does call) my interview for TWU video editor goes great. I am kinda glad she moved it from this friday to next friday. I have 8 days to practice and use my editing program. I think I need to go walk around town and throw random vlogs together. Any ideas?

Interesting story, if you are a friend of mine on FB then you know about my wonderful adventure last night. my back neighbor finally made an appearance...not a welcome one though.
Last night about midnight 03 I finally was able to get comfortable and lay down. Just as I was starting to shut my eyes and fade from my magazine I was reading low and behold their presence. Randomly awful moans with a responding grunt here and there. Yes ladies and gents the skank behind me and our oh so amazingly constructed paper thin walls. I would guess I was about 24 inches away from the skank and grunt going full paced hard core porn style. you could hear everything, and i mean evvvvverything. Thats including the random "are you close?" repeatedly asked to the grunt. joy, is my full response.

Now I mentioned these paper thin walls did I mention I had music on at 9:45 Sunday and the girl UPSTAIRS told me it was too loud!

Now I know everyone on my side of the building lives alone. However even the skank made me feel pretty lonely last night and today.
Finding someone before I left Corpus christi, someone who genuinely cared about me, took care of me, and is one of the most amazing people I have ever met was absolutely a great experience, and best relationship I've had. Just makes me miss him a lot. Yes, it brings me to tears I have a nice little void, missing my comfort, being in his arms, and feeling so protected from anyone and even words. i miss him a lot. You always find the best ones when you aren't looking.
With all these "i love you"s & "missing you"s from him, my sister, my best friends & mom have kinda gotten to me. Not to mention the ever growing stress of having no job and watching the bank account dwindle down to a double digits soon to be a single, yeah doesn't help so much. Yes I would like to think my void in my heart is growing. Though its been suggested I am just bored waiting for school, that thought has crossed my mind as I drive the streets of Denton with no where to go.

If there is anything I have learned, its God has a path and gives me things he knows I am capable of. So instead of what I have repeated in the past and cry my little eyes out until I fall asleep I will be praising God and giving him all the thanks for putting me in such a blessed and beautiful position in my life.
I have conquered an awful divorce where anyone even a cheater (all but him) would say I was wrongly done. I know I deserve all the best in the world and I am here in my position and it wouldn't be made possible if I was not meant to be here right now. With that said: my past doesn't define me.
it is those past experiences, stories, and relationships who have built me to be who i am today. and today that is yet feeling lonely, I am in Denton, TX a 24 year old female who has struggled in the past but has more determination than I have ever had in my life to finish and prove to those who did not believe in me to stay by me that they have their views all wrong and who they thought I was was just yet another bad judgement in their life. and finally one day I can say "look who is on top now".

so for now when I am feeling lonely, I know I am not.

I will leave you with this verse

"but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; 
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; 
they shall run, and not be weary; 
and they shall walk, and not faint." -Isaiah 40:31

p.s. with this said I believe I might be attempting a church or two sunday morning.

Denton LOVE!

I have finally made it to Denton, TX. It was a long drive but with my moms help we made it here! and we have successfully managed to empty everything into my 450 sq ft apartment. 

I came to the apartment greeted by my best friend who had given my a tour of the apartment the night before via skype. I thank technology and the apple iphone inventor! I really dislike that moving really shows how much crap you have. Boo! 



So I am officially settled  in. I just had my first night in my own place. I can’t believe I am here. Time I had left in corpus just flew right by me and now I am here on my own in Denton. 

Things to do today: 

Craigslist job hunt
Respond to potential job interviews
Shower/prepare for the COLD day
Make lunch (yummy vegetable chili) 
Job application hunt  near home
Return shelves from Target 
knock out walmart list
visit dollar tree (tackle that list) 
come home
love on bailey & nibs
and hopefully watch more veronica mars

Kinda how my next few days will go. I have a potential job on campus but my interview has been moved to NEXT friday. The interview is working with iMovie 9. Giving me plenty of time to make a few more videos and work on other videos and practice editing. So I can nail the job. 

I hope soon to put up photos of this swaggin place i got here. But for now time to tackle CL and find myself a JOB! 

Hope everyone is staying warm. To all my corpus family and friends I send you all my love and best wishes I miss you all.

things that annoy me.

I am in no rush to be pregnant NOR married again.

but it annoys me that everyone i grew up with is pregnant or getting married or has been married.

Me of all people are not one to suggest marriage of all things and nor will you find me advocating babies either.

I wish marriage was held to its standards like in the old testiment.

Just a small rant when I saw a photo of someone I went to Elementary, middle school, and high school. She has only been married for a year? oh well they say when you can't beat them join them, but don't fret this is one fight (annoyance) i will NOT be joining for a long time!

Happy new year everyone. 

Just wanted to let everyone know I am just in a chaotic place with packing and seeing friends before i take off friday.
