See you later, alligator!

I don’t even think this is worth mentioning, but I’ve decided to take a week off of facebook and xanga. Really, I wanted to do it about a month ago, but I didn’t, and now I feel it is even more necessary. I think I waste a lot of time on internet rather than dealing […]

I Feel His Love

This is probably cheesy, but today I want to share a song with you guys; don’t worry it is NOT of me singing. ha! Music is a very powerful force, and use to, it was something I used to make me go deeper into depression. But now, I like to listen to mostly worship music, […]

Happy Mardi Gras, Xanga!

As most of you don’t know, today is Mardi Gras in South Louisiana, a day of parties, parades, and debauchery. While in reality I’m not celebrating (I never have), I felt it would be culturally relevant to take and share some pics. If I had more time (and hands), I should’ve done a parade with […]

Today I was discussing with God my frustration regarding his silence (I’m really mad at him to be very honest about it). This is sorta how the conversation went… Me: […]

Updated: I’m a softy.

This updated edition includes a more recent story from here on xanga; I hope this doesn’t make me a drama queen (or a meanie), but I’m really bothered by this… When it comes to kids (I use the term kids loosely to mean anyone still in school), I give way too much, and they know […]

Overcoming

A couple of weeks ago I accomplished a major feat. I finished the lit review of my masters project. Background: This is the second time I have tried to do this project, and I started it this summer. I spent ALL summer of this project, but didn’t seem to get very far. Then once school […]

The Versatile Blogger Award

Who? me? Why, Thank you, @pickwick12! They love me, they love me, they love me!  Ok. moment over. Now to the important stuff.  Share seven things about yourself. 1. In college, I ran from the police and hid under a car. (I was just shooting fireworks, but it was a scary night!) 2. I have never […]
