Deserve

I have this really great friend - we love to debate like crazy (both of us say the bluntest things and laugh our heads off the whole time). One would think that we would have offended each other by now...yet we've been friends for years and our friendship just seems to get deeper and more opinionated ;p
This may have something to do with both of us being passionate ENTJ's ;) 

Anyways, a while back (sometime in February or March) we were texting right before I left for a trip. Life was very good, and some great things were happening. 
Like a good friend, she was pretty happy for me.
"You deserve this," she said.
Now the opinionated me disagreed with her (as normal). I was sure that I did not deserve what was happening in my life. 
It was just too good - I felt unworthy. 
I mean, seriously, who deserves anything good? Sometimes we observe some awesome, kind, loving people.  But we know that all fall short of the glory of God. All sin. All fail. All are in desperate need…

Hey, I'm 21 ;D

So, I don't usually do birthday posts...
But 21 is supposed to be a special age, so why not?



On Monday I had my 21st birthday.
To tell the truth I haven't been that excited about my birthday. I could care less about being 21 (it's supposed to be some sort of magic number???)
The only ages I actually ever looked forward to growing up were 17 and 20. 17 because it was my golden birthday, and 20 because I would no longer be a teenager
{I never liked being a teenager and being associated with the drama and stupidity of that age ;p}

17 was a good year. I started working many of my first jobs and started getting out more and experiencing life and what I wanted to do. It was a great year.
20 was (has been weird). I mean, there's been a lot of good.
But a lot of bad, too.
I finally went in and got my driver's license. I was baptized :D Friendships were created and strengthened. I worked a lot, and I've seen my writing do amazing things this last year.
But my life also…

How Bad Can I Be?: Lyrics That Make You Go "Wow!"

How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just doin' what comes naturally How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just following my destiny How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just doin' what comes naturally How ba-a-a-ad can I be? How bad can I possibly be?

Well, there's a principal of nature (principal of nature) That almost every creature knows Called survival of the fittest (survival of the fittest) And check it this is how it goes The animal that is has got to scratch and bite and claw and bite and punch And the animal that doesn't (well the animal that doesn't) winds up Someone else's lu-lu-lu-lu-unch! (I'm just saying')

How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just doin' what comes naturally How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just following my destiny How ba-a-a-ad can I be? I'm just doin' what comes naturally How ba-a-a-ad can I be? How bad can I possibly be?

Well, there's a principal of business (principal of business) And everybody knows his sound He says the people with t…

Standing Against Society's Expectations

Do you ever wonder what you are supposed to do with your life? How to live it? Honor and respect those that you should, balancing between doing what you should and what others (family, friends, and even the world) think you should?
You don't want to be a bum.
You want a successful life.
But who gets to decide what is successful?
Who decides what makes one educated and accomplished? By whose standards are you going to pursue a meaningful life?
Even those of us that will answer "God's" still have more than enough choices.
This world is not an easy place to live.
And I realize this more and more each passing year.

People are so caught up in a struggle of surviving that most can't breathe. But we are told we have no other choice.


Society's Plan
We must graduate from the designated 12 years of school, which includes all the subjects that they feel are necessary for every individual to know. Then we must go to a university and get some sort of degree – it doesn'…
