Happy Turkey Day!

"Life without thankfulness is devoid of love and passion. Hope without thankfulness is lacking in fine perception. Faith without thankfulness lacks strength and fortitude. Every virtue divorced from thankfulness is maimed and limps along the spiritual road."

I'm gonna have to take my computer to get a virus taken off of it...sad day! My of my friends say that I got it from Facebook...but I don't believe that....who knows....the sad thing is that if I NEED or WANT to use a computer I'm going to have to go to the Info Lab in the library on campus....even sadder day because a cold front blew in so that means bundling up and walking over....tears :)

Granny+Halloween=Good Times!

This is my 89 year old grandmother (aka Granny). She was a hit at 2 different Halloween parties! Gotta love it! Plus you gotta love her costume!!!

**One Hundred & One Post**

WOW can't believe that I've had a blog long enough to post over 100 well post :). I guess this a good time to remind my "friends" that: 1) I am NOT the queen of grammar, or her servant for that matter, 2) I CAN'T spell to save my life!

So unless someone tells me to stop, I guess I'll keep blogging :)

SFA Homecoming 2009

The homecoming was really really HOT!

Me and my good friend Brandie...we are killing time. We got to the 2pm game (vs. Sam Houston) at 12:30...we are die hard Purple Haze fans!!!

This is some random play I took a picture of during the 3rd quarter...I do know that Jacks were on defence, and that's about as far as my football knowledge goes. :)

The final score. WOO WHOO. Love it when the football team wins homecoming.

24 Years Old

Today is my parents wedding aniversary, they have been married for 24 years...

....Happy Aniversary Mom & Dad!

Labor Day Quote...aka Monday Quote

We all start out with the same alphabet. We are all unique. Talent is not the most important thing --- discipline and dedication are. Craft can be learned but desire and longing are innate. Despite the demands of school and just being young, try to write SOMETHING every day --- a description, a captured emotion, a simile, a metaphor. Read, for crying out loud! A writer must read the way a ball player must go to the ballfield every day to practice. Everything is possible in this world of ours--- and so's publication.

- Robert Cormier, answering the question ...
..."What advice do you give to young people who want to be authors?"

Love This...

I got this in an email from my friend Melissa....and I wanted to share it with everyone! I like them ALL, but the bolded are the ones that I love the most...ENJOY!
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
9. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
11. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
13. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
14. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
15. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
16. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
17. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
18. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
19. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
20. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
21. The most important sex organ is the brain.
22. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
23. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ''In five years, will this matter?".
24. Always choose life.
25. Forgive everyone everything.
26. What other people think of you is none of your business.
27. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
28. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
29. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
30. Believe in miracles.
31. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
32. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
33. Your children get only one childhood.
34. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
35.. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
36. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
37. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
38. The best is yet to come.
39. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
40. Yield.
41. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
42. The most important one is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved from your sins. Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves.

I've been very confused with a particular situation for sometime know, but I keep telling my self that there is a greater meaning for the situation to be in my life. I just wish God would let me in on His little secrete...I'm almost positive I would be 99.9% less stressed out right know.

Me and my best friend Jennifer are going to the outlet mall in Round Rock....just 3 days of relaxing shopping, well window shopping, cause I'm still a poor poor poor college student....but hopefully over the summer I will be getting lots of phone calls, text, and emails from mamma's needing a few hours (or lots of hours) to themselves....

I keep telling my self that tomorrow is FRIDAY and I'm going to a Kevin Fowler concert in I'm praying the relieve just a little of my stress for just a few hours....I'm thanking GOD that I was able to find someone to go with...WOOO WHOO for Kevin Fowler!!!!
