City Folk

I've been writing a lot lately. It's been pretty good. Besides the insomina that I've been having recently, life is pretty good. I've been reaching out to tons of people about Christ and it's awesome. God has big big plans for me! I can't wait to find out what more of them are. Not only did I get interviewed by the biggest newspaper in St. Louis, but my church now wants to interview me, which is freaking awesome!!

Goodbye 2008!
Hello 2009!!


John 14:1-6

Chirstmas was...plesant. My mom behaved and didn't make me feel bad as much as she had the day before. She just gets that way sometimes and I don't think she realizes what she's saying is hurting me super bad. Oh well, what are you gonna do? But if she keeps pulling stuff like this, I'm just not ever gonna visit when I get older. I'll stay on campus over breaks or visit with other people's familes.


So this is Christmas?

I was in an article today in the Post-Dispatch. I was so proud of it and what I was doing. Personally, I thought I was doing a great thing by speaking and telling my story. My mom, on the other hand, didn't. She means well, I think, but she just doesn't understand. Just because I was baptized as a baby and confirmed, even though I was a non-believer, dosen't mean I'm a Christian. But because I've seen what God has done for me in my life and given my life to Jesus Christ, I am one. I owe everything to Jesus becuase he died for me, and that's the best Christmas gift ANYONE could ever ask for.

I also didn't win this contest, but that's ok, cause the winner was picked at random, and I'm tottaly fine with it. I was maybe upset for all of 30 secounds. But Blake's all like, you need to write to him and make him give you the prize. I'll write to him. And he's taking it out of control. I know he means well, but if I really was mad, I would try and do something, but I'm not.

Oh well, I guess life doesn't always go according to plan...



I have my English final over Catcher in the Rye today. Then I have my Algebra final.

Wish me luck!!



No school today...

My day was more fun that it would've been at school


Drive Thru

Man...I'm not so sure what's going on right now...Maybe it'll get better...


Why do I always go back to him? He calls and I go to meet him.


I missed him a lot though...So it was good to see him...I guess...No, it really was. But it doesn't make my life any easier right now, that's fer sure.


Leave Out All The Rest

I may or may not go to Fish Club tonight, even though i probably should.
I may or may not go to school tomorrow, even though my parents will probably make me.

Pawpaw is with Jesus now and no longer in pain. I thank God for that. It's so wonderful having a God that will take care of you and give his one and only son to us so that we can have eternal salvation.

Acts 18:9-10 "Don't be afarid! Speak out! Don't be silent! For I am with you"


Wake Up Slow

I love Christmas. I honestly do. I don't like the whole, receiving thing though. I'm more of a giver, and if someone would rather donate money to a charity than buy me a Christmas present, I'm all for that.

Since I have 2 older brothers, I would like to think that I, too, have had to grow up with them. I've been told I'm extremely mature for my age, mostly by my co-workers. Let me clear that last bit up for you. Currently, I work at Starbucks and I'm the youngest person that works there. It's fun and I've met a lot of really neat people, and most of them can't believe that I'm only 16.

But anyway, back to the whole, No Gifts on Christmas thing. If I do ask for something for Christmas or my birthday, I try to make it really big. Example 1: Last year for Christmas, I asked for a acoustic guitar and nothing else. I got my acoustic guitar and nothing else from my parents. Example 2: For the past...3 birthdays, I've only asked for one thing and I haven't had a birthday party since the 7th grade. 8th grade, I went and saw RENT at the Fox Theatre with my mom. 9th grade, I saw Relient K with some of my friends. 10th grade, I went up to Chicago with my parents and saw Wicked. I'm not sad or bitter that I get only one present, I think it shows my maturity. But who knows, maybe I'm just a freak.

Like, I can't stand when people spend money on me. Like my boyfriend for example. I HATE when he pays for things like a movie ticket or something else that is useless and mundane. It frustrates me because I'm just as able to pay for myself if he didn't pay for me. IDK, maybe I am a freak.
