In case you are living under a rock, today is Thanksgiving. That precious day that rolls around each November on which we try as hard as we can to do the impossible and be grateful for everything we have. Let's face it, it is human nature to be ungrateful--to want more. So I am going to be honest--I am unhappy about a lot of the things in my life right now. I am at that age where a lot of stuff goes awry, and that's not fun. I wish that I had a better perspective on school, and that I knew how to handle the mistakes that I make. I wish that I could be more appreciative of the options I have, rather than wanting better, more exciting ones.

By the same token, though, I am grateful for the mistakes that I have made. Not in the "wow I am so blessed" way, but in the way that kind of makes your stomach sink. I am grateful for the lessons I have learned, no matter what the cost may have been. Without the mess-ups in my life, I wouldn't be anywhere near the person that I am today.

So, yes. I am thankful for my family, friends, community, job, education, and all of that. But today I am most grateful for the struggles that I have endured. They have made me stronger, wiser, and overall just better. I know that God has a plan for me, and though I may not see it now, He is preparing me to face something more. He is reminding me that there is more to this life. And I am grateful for that.



It's been a while...

Hey, everyone!

Let's address the issue at hand.

It's been months since I've posted on this blog.

Why? I've been crazy busy! My life these past few months has been INSANE. But I'm started to get my sh*t together, so now it is time for me to get to blogging!

Honestly, I am not going to even try to catch you up on my life...That would take days. But I can tell you where I am headed now!

I just switched my major to Journalism with and emphasis in magazines, so hopefully my life will be a bit calmer next semester (no more math or chemistry!). That means more posts!

I was going to do a post on my favorite going-out makeup, but I had to get a new phone yesterday and lost all of the pictures! I will re-do them soon, though.

Okay, I know I said I wouldn't catch you up with my whole life, but here is the SparksNotes version of the past semester:

1. I am in love with Luke Kuechly (Carolina Panthers LB)

2. Branching off of #1, I have discovered my love for football

3. I got bangs! I love them.

4. OBSESSED with the Justin Bieber Believe album (I know I'm kinda late on that)

5. I think I want a camera for Christmas...This one is my favorite!!!

That is all that I can think of right now, but I'm sure I will think of more later! And yes, a cliche Thanksgiving "What-are-we-grateful-for" post will be coming soon. Brace yourselves for the cheesiness.
