Movin’ On Out

If you’ve been wondering at all why I haven’t been posting at ALL lately, it’s because we’re in moving mode. I’ve barely even convinced my mom to keep the internet on so I can still use my iphone. On top of all the moving, I’m still working and planning a little thing called VBS (it’s really not little at all). So to say I’ve been busy is an understatement. I’m a bit stressed right now, but there’s only a few days left.

My mom just left to pick up our dog Izzabelle, who I haven’t seen since like, Christmas. I’m super excited, but it’ll be short lived since I’m not moving with my mom.

My sister’s cat had her kittens finally, three healthy ones and one that was still-born. She’s turned into quite a little mama, but we hope they’ll all survive the move in four days. It’s a long one…thankfully, they’re only going to Colorado Springs and not California. I’m sure Stephie will be super happy to see her baby again.

On other news, I’m starting a new video project for the local television’s first Video Awards. I really want to win because I could soooo very much use that $250. Like major. I’m saving up for a Macbook Pro of my own.

I haven’t been posting ANY of the pictures from anything, so I will in a few days. There’s even stuff from before the 4th that I have to share. But here are a few pictures from last weekend at Meghan’s Sweet Sixteen Party.

Running Around

Busy, busy week this week.

Yesterday was Monday and I’ve already done so much. Monday means work day, meaning I spent most my time at Telluride TV. We headed to the library almost as soon as we arrived, to pick up some posters. But the graphic designer wasn’t there, leaving us without posters.

So Sam left, leaving Meghan and I to put up poster around town. Katie should be happy because we got like ten up. It’s hard in a town this small. There’s only so many places that actually take them.

We met back with Sam at “noon fifteen” (his words) and set up for the Telluride Minute. The people we got to interview were very sweet and fun. And Meghan was nervous since it was her first interviews, which made it entertaining for Sam and I.

I, by the way, handed out stickers, and I must say I rock at it now. “Here, You’ll be able to see the finished product on the website in a week or so.” Like always we had a very fun time hanging out. I like Sam because he gets my mean, teasing sense of humor. And he can dish it out as well as take it. He’s alright in my book.

I wanted to share the photos I took of Meghan for the webpage. I’m in love with this camera…too bad it’s not mine.

Torn Away

(written @ 4 on June 28)

There are so few books out there that make me feel. Make me feel everything the main character does like I was right there. Make me feel the anger and passion and love and fear and excitement and sadness. I’ve only read about 10 books that force me to read through the night without a second thought.

That’s why I’m thrilled beyond belief when I can find a book that can make feel these things.

Let me give you an idea to how HARD of a reader I am when I stumble across a book like this. I started this particular book last night around 9, stayed up until 2 in the morning, picked it up again at 10 and finished it at 3 in the afternoon. During that whole time, I never drank or ate anything. I only paused because I promised myself a shower and to do one homework assignment. Then I went straight back to it until I finished.

Let me tell you, my heart is still pounding.

I love getting into a book so much that nothing can distract you. Then afterwords (and this can last for days), I don’t feel like doing much except reading it all over again. I have to either find a book with just as much quality or start some sort of craft project to take my mind off of it.

Learning to Fly

There some times in my life where it seems like nothing more can get me down. I’m already to close to the ground, it seems it’ll never get better. But that’s when I play one of my all-time favorite songs.

“A Broken Wing” by Martina McBride

If you haven’t heard this song, you’re truly missing out. It may seem a bit cheesy and that’s because it was written in late 90s/early ’00s, which was the era of cheese in country music. But I still love it because it has and awesome message to it.

Every time I hear this song, I am reminded that even though I have no where to run, I have plenty of room to fly. So no matter how hard times seem to get, I can still fly off into the sunset. 🙂

Acceptance

I’m going to write about something that’s been weighing heavily on my mind lately. It’s not what I normally talk about, but it’s important to me. It’s about Christians.

I consider myself a Christian, even though most don’t. I rarely go to church, never read the bible, but to me, it’s way more important than that. It’s a way of life, of mind. I’ve never been really ashamed of being a Christian, but I also don’t go around bragging about it. Especially not here. Mainly because most people living in this town are atheist or some variation.

I know that by saying I’m a Christian, I am going to have to deal with a lot of hate, disbelief, and judgement. And I’m mostly okay with it. Except when people stereotype me. It’s just like with anything else; race, gender, age, etc… But it pisses me off when people start hating on me because I’m a Christian.

Some people thing gay marriages or anything related to it is evil, or a sin. I don’t. I once heard this and it will forever stick in my mind: “Sometimes people don’t fall in love with a man or a woman. Sometimes people fall in love with people.” Just because some people say there’s scriptures in the Bible saying being gay is a sin, doesn’t mean I believe it. All I know is that you’re supposed to “love thy neighbor” and never judge or hate those because they fall into a certain group.

I hate the idea most people associate with Christians. We’re not all bible-quoting, people-hating, straight-and-narrow people. We’re all different people who believe in a God and a salvation, but from there on, we differ. Some Christians believe it’s our Christian duty to care for those who don’t “fit the mold”…but really that’s everyone. I don’t know anyone without sins, characteristics, doubts, or hatred in them. I still don’t even know who will be “accepted into heaven”. Maybe a gay man will and I won’t. Why does it matter what we love and not who we love.

Well, that’s my little rant for the day. Maybe soon I’ll go deeper and talk about death or something. 😉
