After talking to Aunt Beth (or emailing I suppose) about photography I started looking at some pictures I had taken a while ago.. here they are :]

return to normalcy..in a way

Today I woke up at 6:15 to get to the airport at 7:30 to say goodbye to the Blanchards. There was a HUGE group there to see them off. We took pictures, gave hugs, and waved at them until they passed through security. It was sad, but I think it STILL hasn't sunk in for me. I got back around 9 and I read a book for about two hours. The book I'm reading is called Chasing Fireflies. It is about a bunch of people who are trying to figure stuff out. It is one of those books where the characters don't know much, but they know more than the author lets on. Yeah, one of those. It's good. Then I went on a run. A RUN. Let me repeat: A RUN. I was going to ride my bike (well my mom's), but the stupid pump thing wouldn't pump the tires. So I got mad and started running. I only ran for a mile and I was about to die. This is a bad thing. Bad thing #2: My first class starts nest Tuesday. I just found this out yesterday. Poop is all I have to say about this. So now I have to put away clothes, but that is gonna wait. I kinda like this sitting thing :]

ten things

1. It is hot outside
2. I am more lazy than I remembered
3. School starts in a few weeks
4. I am feeling convicted of my selfish nature
5. I like lots of different kinds of music
6. Sometimes I just don't know what to do or say
7. My eyes are sleepy but I am not
8. Life is different without structure
9. I haven't read or taken pictures in a while, but that is ok for some reason
10. My brain has been thinking a lot lately but has come to no definite conclusions

It's a dangerous thing to ask God to teach you stuff, but it's the only way.

Sometimes I try to know too much. If I don't know all of the answers, and know how everything should turn out I panic. I have started to realize that some things come with age, or at least time. How can I know all about things that I have never experienced? Rhetorical. The maturity that I develop doesn't come from efforts to fix certain parts of my personality. It comes from God working in me. I know that I think and analyze things way to much. In some ways this is me trying to steal God's spot. A futile and miserable way to live. So right now I am trying to not stay one step ahead of life. It moves way too fast for me. I want to live now, but stay alert to God's subtle lessons and guidance. (not to subtle sometimes I guess!)

So basically I'm a nerd who wants to be a hippie. Haha. Just kidding :]
