I have too many bruises to count!

Soccer has been beating me down lately. It is the most fun thing I have done in a while, but I am in constant pain!

A of all, i have a MASSIVE shin bruise that is now light purple and won't go away.
B of all, I have multiple arm bruises (who thought, arm bruises in soccer, really?!)
C of all, I have blisters (said in a funky spanish accent) on both of my fee
And last of all, and this has nothing to do with soccer, I have some kind of thorn stuck in the bottom of my foot. Ouch. Legit.

BUT, it's all worth it, it has been so much fun playing soccer lately. and we keep on winning! Another game tomorrow-that's what's up. Im pumped.

Side note, Phil Wickham and Charlie Hall did a concert, which was more like a worship session, tonight at school. And it rocked. It really was such a sweet time of worship and praise. I love seeing classmates and friends worshiping the Lord like that- it was good.

Just now, I showed my roommate Tip my thorn foot and she said we would need to do minor surgery and, I quote "dig" it out. I am not a fan of that at all. But it's hurting really bad... So i am going to man up.Ok, so it looks lame and small but it hurts much worse than it looks!!!

It's time :(

A Jumble of Goodies

It's FRIDAY!!! Which is really exciting. I have nothing too interesting going on in my life to post about, so i'll mention these three randos:

1. I love my little sister meredith. She is cuter than me but I am ok with that. We're champs.

2. I painted this last weekend, as a break from writing my paper and it turned out cute! Even though it only partially matches my room. I still love it. (P.S, Char if you're reading this- your art skills have flown past mine. Hence this painting. You win at being good at art :) Where's Jb when we need him!?)

P.S I know it's backwards. It says love, faith, hope in Espanol.

3. I have a soccer AND a softball game tonight that I am pumped for!! We won our last game 3-2, so tonight should be alot alot of fun.....I have no picture to show....

WEEKENDS ARE THE BEST!!! (said in a nacho libre voice).

Paper break. Much needed.

So I have a 10 page paper due on Tuesday for my TESL 220- Phoetics and Language Acquisition class. It's going to be a really interesting paper on infant language acquisition and language delays for children. BUT. It is also frustrating to be sitting in bed all Saturday working on it. And I want it to be good and accurate. Not rushed together. We'll see how it goes. I started it this afternoon and have roughly 4 pages done...but I needed a break. Hence this post. :)

Thoughts in my head:
- i love augastana
-i wish this cold would go away, it's been with me since Monday and im not happy about it
- our room smells most likely because of somethin gone bad in the freezer but Brooke insists its a dead mouse...none of us want to confirm that..because that would involve finding the dead mouse...
-i need to spend less money probably
-i need to pick out my classes for next semester and NOT freak out because they will probably be hard and demanding
-i dont read my bible enough
-febreeze does a sucky job of "eliminating" odor
-i think i might where my peace sign necklace everyday from now on because i am liking it alot lately
-i have nothing to do for dinner tonight. Suck.
-my bed is made and that is weird
-also the news is on in the other room, which is weird
-my sister is laying on the beach right now-oh to be married and travel to fun places just because
-I AM GOING TO SEE HANNAH MONTANA MOVIE TONIGHT-highlight of my day most likely
-i should paint

That is the randomness of my life. Now for a quick paint break before attempting to finish up this dreaded Saturday stealer!

I don't feel like studying, reading a book that's due soon, starting a paper that's due soon or sleeping, so now I blog. An update was needed anyways...

Well, hm...

The Fray has been on my mind lately, which is not a bad thing by any means at all. I love their new cd. But, one song sticks out. Here's a glimpse of the lyrics from it:

Some things we don't talk about
better do without
just hold a smile
we're falling in and out of love
the same damn problem
together all the while
you can never say never
when we don't know why
time and time again
younger now then we were before
we're falling apart
and coming together again and again
we're coming apart
but we hold it together
hold it together, together again

Just words. Anways, I am overwhelmed and exhausted lately and I absolutely hate it. I am not a fan of the situation I am in, in any way. A of all, people are judging me and not liking me because of decisions i've made and B of all I have so many opinions of others and thoughts of my own rolling around in my brain that nothing seems like the right thing to do, but everything seems like it could be the right thing-and that makes no sense. I am just wanting to quit. I'm 19 years old-that's it. I have so much time yet so little. By trying not to rush i am rushing, by trying to make a decision, I can't make one.

I have work to worry about, school work, friends...

Oh my. I need to sleep.

Good song:


It makes me happy. Oh so happy.

not sure what to put here

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.

Hebrews 10:22

So today, we awoke and thought "let's lay out!" This turned out to be an excellent decision, not only because of the warm weather, tanness, and sun, BUT ALSO because of the great photo op it allowed for. I felt like I was at the beach for a while today, and that makes me happy. Good start to the day.
