i am playing competitve college volleyball. bcf is starting their first team. holla. workouts are 5:30 am for the rest of the season. i am excited about getting up that early for a reason. i love the outside in the mornings especially when the sun hasnt risen yet. rose. rised. arised. everything is so peaceful. and exactly where it should be. early mornings are beautiful. the mascot for our school is the eagle. the bald eagle, of course. we shouldve been the moose. mooses. meese. mossians. moosicans.

matching and i.

a dear friend of mine texted me a verse a few days ago. it meant a lot to me because i know she wanted me to read it. Hosea 6:3. 'Oh that we may KNOW the Lord! Let us press on to know Him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of the dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.' this was a verse i needed at the time. which is why it is now so important to me. it has meaning. God is so cool. this friend is moving to atlanta in september. even though i wont be home a lot this semester, i will miss her. she is so encouraging. her walk with the Lord is so encouraging. i know when she reads this she wont think highly of herself. i am so grateful she will be doing what God wants her to do. rachel jones. i am praying that God will give you a peace in every situation. truly. i love you!

a little golden book: The Gull That Lost the Sea.

reading is so good. i feel like its healthy. and very important. sometimes it takes me a while to read a book. sometimes it takes me 2 days. either way, its good. it makes people smarter. depending on what book it is, it helps have a better imagination. which is detrimental.

i am living in a house. "the presidents house." obama lives here. in graceville. the president of bcf used to live here. my room is almost finished. it looks so good. i am quite the decorator. although i am being swallowed by shelves. the walls...consists of only shelves. hmmm. a library perhaps? or maybe its where they stored all their food for y2k. yes. millenium= starvation. or maybe its where they kept all there beanie babies. or...or! its the room dr kinchen placed all his trophies. he held the record for possessing the worlds most saltwater aquariums. maybe he used to own a lot of cats. they needed a place to sit. the possibilities are endless.

a few nights ago i saw two shooting stars on my way home. i wasnt even looking at the sky. i think God created shooting stars just for us. just so we can look at them. shooting stars declare Gods glory.

starbucks: ground coffee. tasting notes: balanced, nutty. flavor intensity: medium. my opinion: yum.

meryl streep. a favorite.

sometimes i wish i could take a moment i love and make it last a million years. tonight i thought this many times. me and my best friend brittani sampson went to see a 10:00 movie. for free. since she works at a movie theater. we saw julie and julia. great movie. inspiring. we were the only people in the theater. which was probably a good thing. we got free popcorn and free icees. and we bought chocolate covered peanuts. near the end of the movie, we got tired and restless. we hit the first stage of deleriousness. in our case, the first stage is most likely stage five for others. we put up the arm rests and laid across the chairs. it wasnt comfortable but we both agreed it was perfect. this opened the doors for a lot of hilarious jokes. we were laughing histarically at ourselves. near the end of the movie i dozed off for a few minutes and woke up at the very end. we were thankful we didnt wake up the next morning. i know to you this doesnt seem like a cherishable moment, but it was. and is. she is my best friend and we have so many moments like these.
