BAD NEWS: So as you may have guessed, I have the flu. I woke up around 2:30am this morning with stomach pains, and well, you know what the flu is. It;s really been going around lately… and I didn’t get to sleep in with the 2 hour late start because I’ve been awake since 2:30am.

GOOD NEWS: Anyways, the good news is that we’re pretty sure it’s only a 24 hour virus.

BAD NEWS: I couldn’t my journalism application in…eep! Stupid flu…

GOOD NEWS: I discovered some other people who haven’t turned theirs in either, and I can still turn it in tomorrow. Also, I got it finished. (obviously)

BAD NEWS: I’ve been pigging out all day on junk because, well, that’s just what you do when your sick.

GOOD NEWS: I’ve always though fruit rollups were the best in the threesome (Gushers, by the foot, rollups) because they have the best flavor etc., etc. And today I discovered yet another way to enjoy them slower. I used to just eat them rolled up sort of like a lollipop, but I discovered if you divide it into 3 squares and stick a square to your palm and just lick your hand… (HAHAHA) Well, it works, and you can still multitask. Like I’m typing with one on my palm right now. šŸ˜€

Well, that’s pretty much it for today…



Just Monday.

Well, not a really exciting day.

First of, I’m really excited because lately I’ve been eating breakfast every morning. And not just breakfast, but a good, semi-complete breakfast. (Whole grain wheat toast for grains, egg for protein, banana and blueberries for potassium, and orange juice with pulp. šŸ™‚

Also, I’m mad at myself because I haven’t turned in my Journalism application yet for high school and it’s due in two days. Where did the time go?? I have it done, it’s just not typed. So, since we have a late-start tomorrow, (YAY!!!) I think I might type it before school.

Getting in to Journalism is really important to me for two reasons. Mainly, because I want to be in that class. The problem is, I’m most likely going to a private school next year. But I figured, What if I don’t? So I’m not taking any chances and I’m applying. The teacher says it’s not a big deal if I transfer as long as they know before school starts, which they would.

The other reason is I wanna see if I can! If I’m good enough, ya know?

Another thing: My partner and I finished our history project!

Also, aĀ  friend and I are setting two other friends (who claim to hate each other, but it’s obviously just the opposite) up together. We’re tricking them in to meeting at Braum’s and having to sit through a romantic date complete with the 2-strawed milkshake and all!

Lastly, I’m really trying to earn some money. Not really for anything particular, just cause I like to have it available. I think a good amount to ALWAYS have in your wallet is $20 but I’m trying to seriously earn some bucks. šŸ™‚ So I’m getting serious about my allowance so I can have sort of a “steady income”Ā  if you understand what I’m saying.

Well, that’s pretty much it and I’m REALLY supposed to be in bed, so…


Hidden Sins

I’d like to start off by saying the reason I haven’t posted in a while is because this computer was screwed up, as always.

Well, today my pastor preached about Moses and Joshua.

He told us about how when God became angry at Moses along the way to the promise land, He {GOD} took Moses up to the top of a mountain to where he could see the promise land, and had Moses die there, never allowing him to visit the sweet place.

He then told about how Joshua took lead and parted the Jordan river {an echo of when Moses parted the red sea} showing that God was with them.

He told our congregation about when Joshua and the people were told by God to march around their enemy’s town once for a few days while remaining completely silent except for their trumpets.

On the last day they marched around the town 7 times and then all yelled, shouted, and blew the trumpets loud.

He told us how the how their enemy’s town crumbled.

Our pastor continued to tell us the next part of the story. How Joshua and his people were told by God to burn all the enemy’s things, or they would be punished.

He told about how they came upon their next enemy, a ‘wimpy’ one. And howĀ  they sent very few soldiers (about 2-3,000) because they expected a great victory.

He told us how they failed, And how many died. (About 36 I believe)

He went on telling us how Joshua lay on the ground and cried and prayed when he heard the bad news, and how God told him to get off the ground, and explained to Joshua that one of his people disobeyed his instructions and that if the sin was not destroyed then God would no longer be with them and they would continue to fail in battles.

When the man who disobeyed, Akin, confessed to stealing some silver, gold, and a fancy garment, he, his wife, and even his children were stoned.

The point of his sermon was to explain hidden sin. About how people say: “Oh, no one knows about this! It can’t hurt anyone!” but how it effects everyone. Family, friends, the entire church.

But he preached about how God will forgive us and all our sins if we go to him.

Happy Sunday.


Happy Sunday!

Good Morning All!

How bout’ a Sunday Bible verse?

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails”

Corinthians 13: 12-17

Well, I’ve decided that I’m not ever going to write any more than a bible verse on Sundays, after all, the Good Book does say—

“12 The Lord then gave these instructions to Moses: 13 ‘Tell the people of Israel: ā€˜Be careful to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you from generation to generation. It is given so you may know that I am the Lord, who makes you holy. 14 You must keep the Sabbath day, for it is a holy day for you. Anyone who desecratesĀ it must beĀ put to death; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. 15 You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day must beĀ a Sabbath day of complete rest, a holy day dedicated to the Lord. Anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death. 16 The people of Israel must keep the Sabbath day by observing it from generation to generation. This is a covenant obligation for all time. 17 It is a permanent sign of my covenant with the people of Israel. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day he stopped working and was refreshed.ā€™ā€

-Exodus 31: 12-17

Happy Sunday!

Okay guys. I cheated.

After my last post I ate some Reses, cheesecake, cheddarĀ soup, fruit roll up, banana muffin, and sparkling cider.

Yeah, I know.

But you know what’s really funny? I’veĀ been postingĀ online what I eat the last few days to get someĀ input onĀ this whole health thing, and I’ve been getting mostly stuff about how un-healthy I am, and how I need to cut back on junk and replace it with veggies and fruit, but when I posted what I ate today, (Quite a bit, and mostly fattening stuff) everyone commented that I’m on the verge of being anorexic!

This world cracks me up.

Darn it! I have officially fallen in to the ways of America and our health obsession.

You see, I’m a snacker. A BIG snacker. And it’s so easy for me to snack on junkĀ all the time because of my high metabolism. (In other words, I’m not gaining weight)

I’ve always been totally fine with this, but, you see, lately I’ve become increasingly worried about my health. I’m worried that when my metabolism drops (KERSPLAT!) I’m gonna be in BIG (and I mean that both ways) trouble.

I’mĀ fine at exerciseĀ and don’t really have a problem with it, in fact I exercise for 30 minutes a day on weekdays. I’m alsoĀ going to start P90X in aboutĀ  week. (I wanna see some MUSCLES!) This is not because I’m fat, I’m far from it actually, like I said before- my high metabolism is to thank fo my tiny-ness, But I want to stop my bad eating habits in their tracks.

So far, it’s harderĀ than I had hoped. This quest to beĀ healthy has turned in to: Don’t watch TV- there’ll be food commercials! Don’t open he fridge- we all know how that’ll turn out! And there’s another issue— I’d love to re-stock the house with only healthy food items, but I don’t seeĀ that happening. So I’m stuck with the cheesecake in the refrigerator, theĀ ResesĀ on the counter, the sugary fruit snacks in the cabinet, and the candy in my room. Wish me luck!
