I suggest we learn to love ourselves before it's made illegal

If you don't have a memebership to a work-out center, I suggest you get one. It's worth the money, trust me. I've been going to this work out place down the street from where I live called Ballys, and it's awesome. Besides the fact that I had to make a $100 down payment, and pay $47 dollars a month, it's still worth it. Pushing myself to see how far I can go is something I enjoy doing. I think it's a drive that you need if your gonna have consistancy with a gym.

Other then that, I can't get my mind of Kyle! Haha, I mean...did I say that out loud? Hmm...that was pretty brave to say. Though things are going really good with Kyle and I at the moment. He's a hilarious guy, and I'm intrested to see where things will go from here. Noo...he's not my boyfriend! If you were thinking that...

Though what I really ment is that I can't get my mind off Great America!! My youth group and I are going on Saturday, and there is also gonna be a Christian concert that were going to, with bands such as: Supertones, Relient K, Pax 217, Bleach, Slick Shoes, Avalon, Micheal W. Smith...and I believe that's it. It's gonna be awesome! Hope to see you there Max!

Anyways, I need to go to bed...I work tomorrow from 4:30-closing. Nnnnooooo! I mean...uh, woo-hoo...heh. Wait...I get to work with Candice tomorrow...Woooo-hooo! Hehe, alright. I need to calm down to get some sleep.

Goodnight!

They say that a hero can save us, I'm not gonna stand here and wait

Ahh, it's nice to have a day off when your not really supposed to, heh. Though I didn't really get to sleep in, it's still enjoyable. Hmm...I don’t have much to say I guess...

Oh, on Saturday night I was working from 5pm-until we closed and our building is connected to Starbucks, which is right next door to us, of course. Well, on my break around 8pm, I went over to get something to drink cause I had a friend that was working. When I went over there, I saw a bunch of police and they were interviewing my friend and the other workers and I'm like what the heck is going on... so I sit outside for the rest of my break and I go back to work. A little later on, a police dude came over and was asking one of my co-workers some questions and then he left. I came to find that Starbucks had been held at gunpoint and robed just about 20 minutes before I went on my break. The dude got away with over 5 grand.... dude that was pretty freaky. Though the stupid thing is that Starbucks has no cameras, no alarm on their back door, and they're windows are super tinted so you can't see what's going on from the outside. Esh, that's not cool. I'm glad that no one got hurt though...but that still sucks.

Yea, well dude I just gotta say that I have the BEST youth group in the world! Heh, how could I ask for more? On Sunday I had to work from 3:30pm-tell the time we closed and I wasn't able to make it to youth group...and I probably won't be able to anymore because they're having me close on the weekends. Anyways, I had been feeling pretty down this past week and my relationship with God had been suffering pretty badly. I was just falling away from God...I'm around negative influences every day and I was letting them get a hold of me, which cause my relationship with Christ to suffer. Though, I talked to a couple people about it in my youth group...they could tell I was pretty down. So, instead of having youth group on Sunday, they all drove over to visit me at work! It was so funny cause first Brandon came in and I looked up and saw him and I'm like "dude! What are you doing here?!" and he's all "oh I caught the bus." Which is funny cause he lives all the way on the other side of town! Heh, and then a little while later, Nate walks in and Brandon's all "dude Nate! What are you doing here?" and Nate's all "I caught the bus." hahaha. Then Alicia and Marci walk in and Nate and Brandon are all "Alicia! Marci! What are you guys doing here?" and this went on and on and until everyone was inside and they're all acting all surprised to see each other. Then they gave me a card in which they all signed...I was totally about to cry. Then they all bought ice cream and I took my break and we all hanged out for a bit. Man they're so awesome, I still feel like the luckiest person on earth. I didn't deserve that, but I'm so glad they did it. I love them so much! Afterwards I was reading the card they got me, and it heck of made me cry...aww, hehe I'm so blessed. I thank God so much...God's so good to me.

Heh, welp I should get ready... I have some stuff to do. I think I'm gonna die my hair today...thinkin' maybe a reddish brown, heh. We'll see...




Have a beautiful day!

I looked at the cross, then I looked away...handed you the gun, blow me away

I really should go to sleep, but I can't. I really don't like that...Dude, my work called me 3 times today asking if I could come in. Even though I told them in the beginning of the week that I couldn't work this Saturday; and I refuse to work on Sundays for religious reasons. Though dude, I guess they were really busy, but I felt bad that I couldn't be there to help them out.

My parents went over there for dinner and they talked to my manager and told her that I was at a church activity. I guess my manager remember, cause she told my parents that I have been doing an excellent job working there...heh that's really nice to know :-) I still feel bad that I didn't come home in time tonight to at least go in and help for a few hours before they closed, heh. I really enjoy working there...just hope I don't turn into a work alcoholic, heh...

Ah, this week has been crazy. Especially yesterday and today. Yesterday I had school (of course) and once I got off I had to go to the doctors, and that took forever...then I had to go straight to work, and didn't get off tell 11pm and I didn't go to sleep tell around 1am cause I had to get stuff together for today. Then I had to wake up early today to go meet up with my youth group at 9am to go down to the city to hand out lunches to the homeless. Then right when we came back I had to go to singing practice until church started. Now I have to be a church at 8:30am tomorrow...oh goodness. It's cool though; it's all good...

Anyways, dude, the trip to San Francisco today was pretty cool. It went by super fast though. Us youth kids made lunches for the homeless and handed them out. This one lady even let us pray for her...that was the highlight of the day for me. That's just down right awesome dude. Though it was cool handing out lunches and all...but I don't really feel that I made a difference. I mean, yea a lunch will put some food in their stomachs for a couple hours, but after that...that's it. That doesn't bless them with a place to come home to and feel safe at...that doesn't give them a job and clean clothes. I remember seeing this one guy crawling on the sidewalk with his bags and stuff, and laying against the wall to fall asleep. I wanted to hug him, be there for him, talk to him, something! It's hard to just walk past someone like that and feel so utterly useless...but I understand... I mean, I can't save every homeless person...but if I could, I would...

Hmm, today's message at church really hit home for me. When I watched the video they showed, it reminded me of the things I went through when I was young. Heh, it definitely brought me to tears. Through the whole message, I just had tears streaming down my face...blah, it also made it worse the fact that I was extremely worn out. I don't think I'm going to stick around for the message tomorrow...heh, don't feel like crying anymore. I'll just go down to bay street or somethin'...heh.

Heh, I just remember that tonight is my junior prom, heh…oh well

Well, I really should try to go to sleep.

Have a great night...

why are you running away? does it make you admit you're afraid?

Heh, I usually don't use question marks in my titles for stuff...but it just fits. Welp, I got a job today, yay. Heh, that’s cool. I start tomorrow too; super fast. My mind is pretty much racing through all the things I am gonna have to take care of. I'm gonna have to do a lot of praying to get through it. I have work this week from Tuesday to Thursday, which isn't bad. Though there are a few activities that I'm going to have to stop attending...blah. We'll see. I'm really just going to have to hand this over to God and let Him do His thing. He knows what to do better then anyone else :-)

I had singing practice tonight and it was pretty cool. My director, Daniel, had his computer hooked up to the sound system at church and we were all able to sing to the songs individually into a microphone. It felt like being in a sound system, or somethin' like that. Though after we were done singing individually, he played back what we sung...esh. That was the worst part, heh. It really helped us out though, and we were able to hear ourselves and figure out where we were messin' up. Good stuff...

Oh dude! Good news... my rad friend Christina, might come work with me! Dude, that would be so cool. Though she seems like a busy gurl, but we were talkin' about it tonight and were both psyched about the idea so we'll see what happens! All right, I have some stuff to take care of and then I have to hit the sac...

Later dude...

It's goin' down for all the world to see

Dude, spring vacation went by super fast. Though that's usually how it goes. I went to Colorado for the week and had a pretty good time. I've never been out to eat so many times in my life! Though dude, Colorado has the best restaurants, heh. The people are really friendly out there too. And the Denver airport RULES! It's like a super mall, way cool.

Hmm... I really don't want to go back to school tomorrow, but in reality, who does? I'm looking forward to next Saturday though. The youth group is heading out to San Francisco for the day, way cool. Were going to make bag lunches for the homeless and head down there and hand them out. I've been told that the handing-out process goes by real fast, but the fact that your spreading God's love to these people and reaching out to them has a major impact. Heh, man I'm lookin' forward to that. Though next Saturday would also be my junior prom, heh. Oh well...though I think I'm the only junior out of my youth group that's not going to prom. Heh, aren't I the odd ball...or whatever.

All right, I should go do my homework. Have a great rest of the day!

It’s just a tribute

POWERHOUSE! Man, I haven’t been there in ages it seems. I finally went back today, and with my friend Christy too! That was rad. I miss hangin’ out with her sooo much. It’s wack how relationships can change when you move, or switch schools, or whatever. Dude, if your thinkin’ of switchin’ schools just for a change…don’t do it! I beg you dude, don’t…unless God is calling you to do so or somethin’. Cause I switched schools just for the heck of it…well for other reasons to, but mainly for the change. I thought God might have been callin’ me to do so, but now I know that He really wasn’t. Though I made that mistake, God has still used the situation to bless my life in certain ways. Back when I switched schools I was more like…“Ok God, I’m gonna switch schools, please bless my decision” pshh, what kind of crack was I smokin’? Heh, I should have been like “God, if it’s you will for my life for me to switch schools, then bless it with just that.” To bad I’ve realized it when it’s too late, heh. But as I’ve said before, God had blessed my life with my screw up.

Welp, I leave for Colorado this weekend. I have to get up on Saturday at 3:30 in the morning to be at the airport in time…pshh I might as well not even sleep. That’s around the regular time that I go to sleep on a Friday night anyways. Heh, welp for those of you that pray…if you wouldn’t mind…could you please pray for my trip and that the plane doesn’t crash, blow up, or somethin’ crazy like that? I’m excited about the plane ride and all, but still iffy, even though I know I shouldn’t be! Heh… I’ma nerd…

Goodnight everyone!

Keep my heart in your secret place

My hair smells good and I should be doing my homework right now, heh. I have a huge crap load of work to do too. I keep listening to that Eddie Vender song, "Hide You Love Away" It reminds me of a situation I'm in right now...blah...these would be the lyrics for me:

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If he's gone I can't go on
Feelin' two-foot small

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say

Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away

How could I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I'm in

How could he say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away

Heh...maybe a bit to traumatic. Don't think much of it. Well, this week is gonna suck. I have a bunch of appointments to go to, yay... I'm going to most likely not go to my youth group Powerhouse for the 5th week in a row, and I'll most likely miss bible study. That's alright... no it's not. Heh, I want to be going to Mexico with Powerhouse this Spring break, and not on a plane (in which with my luck, will probably crash) going to Colorado for the week with the family. That's alright...no it's not. Nah, who am I kidding? I'm sure I'll have fun...yea. Yup...

Oh, I gave my testimony this weekend. I think I mentioned that before. Though yea, it turned out to be pretty cool. I don't think it hit people all that hard, but oh well... I could be wrong. Though I know God did his thing through what I had to say, and that's good enough for me.

All right, I'm off to bed...no, wait, I have homework...crap!
