Principal of a Prep SchooL!

There was once when I was funny!I was. But you can't be funny and be the principal of a prep school! No you can't.When it comes to their children,these parents will come down to me like a nuclear bomb.--Ms. Mullins(You're the Man!)
I wanted to remember a time when I was fun...cause I feel very un-fun lately. So here is what I came up with!

This is when my roommates and I decided we needed more crafts in our lives. We made this popsicle stick frame for some boys we met like two days earlier. Haha they loved it!
This is my rap/hip-hop group "Loungin in Blue"
When I had no more cares than to just jump with a self-timered camera...
When I travelled back in time to the 80's and looked darn good doing it!
Hmm... good date memories. 
Road Trip to the 45th parallel! Have you been there? Bet not!
I was a VERY convincing nerd!! 
We dressed a mannequin like a wo-mannequin... and then stole his/her arms.
When I was a babe... I know I'm Hot!
When we made a cardboard cutout named Peter. He love me and Katie Hawkes... so much he wore a shirt thats said I love Katie. What a lovely man he was!

Thanks for taking that trip down memory lane with me!

The Genius that is C.S. Lewis...

Well let me just say… C.S. Lewis is a genius!!!

Last night I picked up Mere Christianity because I wasn’t tired and wanted a good book to read. I haven’t read it for at least six months and I forgot how much incredible insight he has! I just want to share a few quotes with you.

“Handing everything over to Christ does not, of course, mean that you stop trying. To trust Him means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.”

“Now, once again, what God cares about is not exactly our actions. What he cares about is that we should be creatures of a certain kind or quality—the kind of creatures He intended us to be—creatures related to Himself in a certain way. I do not add ‘and related to one another in a certain way,’ because that is included: if you are right with Him you will inevitably be right with all your fellow creatures.”

Ya… incredible! Love it!

Why I want to become Peter Pan.

1. Grown-Ups look at you funny when you bring goldfish, fruit snacks and pudding for lunch.
2. Eating corn dogs is frowned upon...
3. You have to fill out applications and interview like mad just to hope your not going to be  unemployed forever.
4. You have to actually eat good and work out to avoid becoming a hippo.
5. You have to pay for all kinds of things and hope that you have enough money to do so.
6. No more fun college stuff... I can't really remember why it was fun, I just remember it was.
7. Can you still like coloring? and watching Boy meets world?
8. Birthdays become much less important

I wish I could think of more reasons I don't want to be a grown up... maybe I'm making it up in my head. Anywho, I think I will take advice from my dear friend Eric Matthews, and go on a very long road trip and end at the giant yogurt cup. There I shall stay forever.

Yesterday I had an incredible experience. I was sitting in the airport feeling terribly exhausted from being out in the sun for so long, like so terrible I felt like I was going to vomit. But then I got in the plane and the plane kept going up. I looked out my window and saw the most incredible sight! It was the sun setting on the horizon. It was bright red and the clouds looked like blueberry cotton candy! It made me so incredibly grateful for everything I have! I was complaining so much to myself about how I felt physically and that incredible beauty jolted that out of me and made me immediately thank my Heavenly Father and turn to my scriptures!

 I turned to Mosiah 14 which is Isaiah's words about how the Savior willingly suffered for us all. I felt so incredibly thankful for that sacrifice. He suffered everything imaginable to save everyone that has ever lived. But I know he would have still suffered that if it was only for me. That is a miracle to me! The I came to a verse in chapter 16 that said, " But remember that he that persists in his own carnal nature and goes on in the ways of sin and rebellion against God, remaineth in his fallen state and the devil hath all power over him."

 I realized that I have been so wrong lately. I have been so carnal and it has truly let Satan into my life. I don't think I realized how far I had let myself stray from the strait and narrow. I know that I have so much more I need to do and my faith needs to increase tenfold! I know that if I continue in this state that I will not be able to return to live with my Heavenly Father and that terrifies me. I want to be better and I will work everyday to remember my Savior's love for me.
