Life and Death and One Less Senior...

FDHS has lost another senior. Two gone...and it's not even second semester. If we lose another I don't know what will happen to this school. I don't know. I have a funny feeling. All of these people seem to be dying around me. Not best friends or direct relatives. I feel like someone very close to me is going to die and I dunno... I feel almost as if I am next. Friends on either side of me have lost friends that they really care about...I feel like I'm going to lose someone I really care about. 
I have this quote from Nick Stokes (CSI) playing over and over in my head. "When it's your day, it's your day." It seems as simple as that. 
Amy wanted to be a nurse and to help people, but she wasn't going to be. Somehow I feel that God knew that. Sometimes I feel like it's cruel that he knows when we're going to die and we don't. Then again, that would completely change the way we live our lives. Not planning for the future but planning for our death day. In truth, that's really no wy to live. I mean...in fear of dying. Shoot it's going to happen...you can't stop it. It's like your period...you can take drugs to prolong it's absence...but in the end it comes. Weird analogy I know...
Lame cliche warning: Live each day as if it were your last. Totally lame, I know. But...you can't go through life carrying hate in your heart. We have a short time here on earth and we have to use the gifts that God has given us...in the short time that we have. 
I think I'm going to call Steven tomorrow and see whats up. I hate that it has taken two deaths for me to get on the right track with my friends. Hopefully, we can start talking again. I miss him. I know he has new/other friends. Everyone needs more than 1 friend. I don't want to lose our contact. I love him - I really miss him.

Death is just around the riverbend

Travis W. was killed in a car accident last night. He had been dating Cassie for a long time. He made her so happy. His car hydroplaned and ran into a tree, he was dead on the scene. He had just dropped her off at her dorm. He was only a few miles away from home. Father, I can't even believe it. One of our seniors is gone. Cassie's boyfriend is dead. Father be with her in this time of need.

I think my bible study is going to be on death. I hope it's not offensive. It will be about living in the here and the now. You never know when your tires will get slick and you'll skid into a tree. When its your day, its your day. But that doesn't make it any easier for the ones left behind of course. Father...how do you pick those days? Days when it rains, when your in the wrong place at the wrong time, or the days you just pluck us from Earth with no explanation. Father I trust your judgment... they lost their only son, too.

Death is surreal. One second your alive and your heart is beating, and the next it is not. It's not natural. It's happens every day, yet, each individual only experiences death once. So, it's not like something you (physically) become accustomed to. How terribly odd.

My Life at present

I did all my work tonight - which is fantastic! All I need to do is read the Awakening by Thursday. My life will momentarily stop on Thursday. So many cataclysmic activities are taking place on Thursday. 1. I have to speak in front of the whole school. 2. Our Pep Rally 3. The Awakening is due. 4. I'm sure there are other things. Mainly I'm worried about finishing this short story and writing my speech for the Yearbook Pep Rally.
I have so much writing to do in the coming months. I need to write a monologue or two or several for the 300th Anniversary Celebration. I need to write about 5 personal statements...or use the same one if it's really kick-ass.  Write in general, because I miss it...
Speaking of my Brethren monologue - I need to get Angela to make me a dress. I could probably use  the plain simple  black dress for the Civil War monologue and the Shwarzenhau Germany Baptism monologue and/ or the early immigrant one or the revolutionary one. I don't think Brethren dress would have changed too drastically in those years. Maybe they did, perhaps it will only be small changes. Like a shirt or a bonnet or shall or something... I need to go to the Farmers Market, so i can buy a black  bonnet. I REALLY NEED TO WRITE SOME MONOLOGUES!!

My Life: The Spoiler


 Gah...I love it. I'm a hopeless romantic in literature. In real life I question whether love exists. I mean I don't question it...but it's not such a big deal to me right now. I'm a 17 year old senior in high school - I feel I have too much on my plate and too much going for me. I did that whole dating thing - it's all good fun, but seriosuly, I'm good. Right now, I'm in my happy place and I'm not waiting around for any boy to bring me out of it. It feels so good to say that. I don't think I'll ever marry. He'd have to be as many layered and multi-faceted as I am. Otherwise, he doesn't stand a chance. My next boyfriend will have to be pretty amazing to be able to tear me away from ALL that I have going on.

My Wish for you...

I want 'My Wish' by Rascal Flatts to be my anthem. I'm completely in love with that song right now. It's so true of how I feel about people, humanity. If we applied the concept to the whole human race we would be an amazing mass of love, forgiveness, acceptance, believers - it would be an incredible thing. I'm tired of being pessimistic and angry about life and love. We grow and change, a new door will open soon enough. Life is amazing. It's breath taking. Humans have so much amazing potential. If we all just took a step back and looked at where we are in life - whether it's bad or good. God will bring things full circle. The war in Iraq- if humans realized what they were killing over. Religion. We're all different and religion is a personal choice. If acceptance could be a worldly feeling.  It's unnecessary violence over there. It's a horrible thing to have children surrounded by such violence. Things like that crush me and lessen my hope for humanity. But the love this songs demonstrates blows my mind. That's what I love about country music. They always write the most touching and meaningful songs. We have great potential. I have so much hope more humanity. I want to live my life to be a beacon for others. I want to live my life to the fullest and show people that you can lead a fulfilling life being a nice, accepting, caring person. This is my challenge to myself: to demonstrate love and acceptance of everyone in school, in church, in my life. In all aspects. That's what God and Jesus want isn't it? To live a Christ filled life. A life by his example. I want everyone to know that I believe in their potential to be great, amazing human beings, no matter where you are in your life. I love you all. I want to pray when I'm angry, happy, jealous, worried and I want Jesus and God to know all my feelings and I want him to share them with me. He will delight in my happiness and help me in times of stress or anger. He'll take those away from me and be with me. Life's not always easy - but he'll always be there. I hope you know somebody loves you. I'm turning over a new leaf. I don't have anger towards my ex-boyfriend (I wish him all the happiness in the world and I know he'll be successful), I know that God will teach  Andy a lesson and he'll come away from his run in with the law stronger, I know that God will help me to challenge others to think like I do and I will do my best. God suddenly struck me with 2 passages and I should probably study them more in context but they are Proverbs 9:12 and Galatians 3:16. I don't know if I pulled them out of thin are or if he gave them to me. But...I'll look into them.

My Wish

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
and each road leads you where you wanna go,
and if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
if it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile.
But more than anything, more than anything...

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but you never forget,
all the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,

and you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
and always give more than you take.
But More than anything, yeah, more than anything...

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish. Yeah.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I need to go pack for Annual Conference and clean my room!

My Pastor Challenged me to learn the names of all the books of the bible in order. I have the Old Testament down pretty good. I stumble over some of them because the names are so random. But I'm proud of myself.

Edit: I went back and counted and left out 8 of them. I got too excited. But I fixed it...
