WANTED: Someone who would love me.

NO SCHOOL! Due to bad weather, our district canceled school.  Its funny.  We have around 10 days, and that’s not too far away, but before Spring officially begins Winter is in season, and here in Texas we get crazy flooding in stead of crazy snow days. Anyway, I wanted to shed some light on a…

18 years-worth of harmony.

Harmony “The combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce chords having a pleasing effect; the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.” ___ I would say this is a great example of harmony.  My parents have been married for almost nineteen years now, and loved each other dearly for twenty.  They are happily…

The new face of Youth Group.

Remember when you were a kid, maybe you went to church, youth group was a place of peace and worship.  You brought your friends to join you, you and your friend could actually talk intellectually about life to one another and even communicate how the Bible could assist you both in your personal struggles.  Youth…

Tbh, SMS should RIP.

Bloggers, Unplugged Sometimes, we all need a break from these little glowing boxes. How do you know when it’s time to unplug? What do you do to make it happen? It’s time to unplug when I realize I am texting two texts before the person has time to text back.  I’ve ruined too many relationships…

Can’t Change the Haters, God Bless ‘Em.

Can’t Drive 55. Take the third line of the last song you heard, make it your post title, and write for a maximum of 15 minutes. GO! So many people at school mess with me and get on my case about things.  I’m an outsider, yet, I’m inside.  I thought that, and this was niaeve,…

When Life Feels Like…

Oh gosh, another week of school almost down and still 8 months to go.  You’re sitting in class, knowing that a progress report is coming and it gives a you constant anxiety and thus taking away your focus in class.  Then, when your day is finally over, you realize you have football.  Then, after that…

Veni, vidi, vici!

“I came, I saw, I conquered.” Julius Caesar Such words describe the valley of shadows I traversed last week.  The jungle where adolescents run wild, the vast mountain of educated enemies, the intro to insanity, the je ne sais quoi that makes public education what it is; it is none other than high school.  Yes.  Over…

The heart wants what it wants.

I am a jealous person.  PSYCHE!  I am not at all a jealous person.  I know that what I want I can get with just some hard work.  Sometimes I may not need it, but I pay the consequences, that is, if its material.  However, most recently that has occurred–that is, the non-green side of…

Teen Post – a personal update.

I haven’t written in a while about my life.  So, here is the update: I feel like a very lucky young man.  I will have my drivers permit next month, go to a private school next school year and–I think–I’m doing well in regards to being a mature young man and staying focused for the…

Oh dear WordPress!

Beyond the Pale When was the last time you did something completely new and out of your element? How was it? Will you do it again? Sometimes I think that prompts are against me.  I swear, every time I think of something to write and come to the keyboard it always makes it a million…

You have to say something.

After all, this is my blog, so why not change the theme every other day? I mean, after all, I really love changes, so when the next ‘wonderful’ thing comes out, you’ll be sure to see my trying it out. I saw this theme and said, “Why not take a picture with a shirt over…

You leave us, but you make us proud!

Fearful Symmetry Pick a letter, any letter. Now, write a story, poem, or post in which every line starts with that letter. As I lay me down to sleep… All my dreams come quietly. And all through the night, A voice says to me, Always and forever, A loving hand will be there to guide…

The horror!!!

The Full Moon When the full moon happens, you turn into a person who’s the opposite of who you normally are. Describe this new you. The night is a cold and ominous one.  The fog has set over the town like a white blanket, captivating its inhabitants.  The lights were masked by the substance, the…

Oh, my dog.

Menagerie Do you have animals in your life? If yes, what do they mean to you? If no, why have you opted not to? (Bonus points for adorable animal photos, and double bonus if they’re taken with your phone!) I am not an animal lover.  Well, I say that…I LOVE other peoples dogs, but my…

I’m Back.

Hey, hey, hey.  I’m back.  After a long absence from the keyboard, today I will try to keep up with the writing world. School has been a hassle.  Also, two weeks ago I was in San Angelo working for my grandfather to save up some money to purchase a car.  I will post up a…

I can do this…I CAN do this…I CAN DO THIS!

I Have Confidence in Me Are you good at what you do? What would you like to be better at? First off, I’m very good about over exaggerating things.  So much so, that even if a worm decided to crawl into an orange instead of the classic red apple, then I would make it seem…

A pastor, a rapper, a President, a writer and a wife.

The Cost of Playing With A Frog.

When it came to a challenge, Jim Smiley just had to jump right in!  His brow had beads of sweat all over, his hands holding a good hand of cards–he stared at a Straight Flush.  He glanced at his opponent and chuckled to himself; what a sucker, he thought. But the opponent had stolidity. The…

The Ideal Saturday Morning.

Me Time What’s your ideal Saturday morning? Are you doing those things this morning? Why not? I like to wake up at around 9:30am and get dressed right away.  I guess that’s because I feel that when I don’t dress right away, it psychologically makes me feel like my day is going to be eaten…

What I need to survive…

Burning Down the House Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?

That stupid towel…

Enough Is Enough When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway? Well, the last time I wanted to, how you say, throw in the proverbial towel was when my friend wouldn’t talk to me anymore.  I talk a…

Daily Post: Friends come and go…

Well, the end of the day is here.  I’ve learned today that with faith in God and believing that he is able to do anything, he will come through.  He will come through if the request is in accordance with his standards.  My friend (BG…I’ve talked about him a couple times before) hasn’t been talking…

Ten Quote Tuesday (#24) – Challenge by Ryan Lanz

“Above all things–read. Read the great stylists who cannot be copied rather than the successful writers who must not be copied.” – Ngaio Marsh Reading is, in my opinion, an art that all must learn.  You cannot be born with it, you have to learn and keep learning until you die.  Because, without the ability to…

Mondays Finish the Story – 1/19/15

THEY FINALLY MADE THEIR ESCAPE from the jaws of a terrible foe’s fate.  One who casts his lot with a schemer will finally know that his leader will be his own disaster, and his disaster is surely inevitable.  A fool despises knowledge, but the wise man grabs it by the hand and says, “Be my…

A Short Story: The Life in A Day – Chapter Two: WHAT IT TAKES

A Short Story: The Life in a Day – Chapter One: THE BEGINNINGS OF NORMAL

Opinions do need to be voiced.

Hey there!  So today is Thursday and…when was my last daily post?  Sorry, I’ve just been busy with schooling and church and…well there isn’t anymore excuses!  I’ve just not been wanting to write.  It kinda hits me on like a high where I just LOVE to post random things, then I get off it and it…

In the Blink of an Eye.

Eye Spy We’ve got our eye on your photos this week. (See what we did there?) ~ This is my response to this contest.  Hope you enjoy. There he was, standing a few feet from me, almost so close that I could smell his hot breath.  He didn’t flinch, and that meant that I couldn’t…

Caution: contents contain your life.

This Is Your Life If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover. Thanks for the great idea, Tom! I feel like my book would be titled: “The Defects and Imperfects of…

Describe this experience. “You’re not special.  Nothing that you do is important.  When people see you, they walk away because they’re ashamed of being around you….

The mood, the moods, the moodies.

Climate Control The idea that the weather and people’s moods are connected is quite old. Do you agree? If yes, how does the weather affect your mood?
