October Baby

I love this movie. I love it. If there’s only one good thing that came out of getting my wisdom teeth surgically removed from my head yesterday it’s that I found this movie. I don’t want to steal anything away from you by imparting any details that I absolutely loved but OH MY GOSH I just love this movie too darn much. It’s even better then A Walk to Remember and coming from me, you know this is serious. The acting was great, the story was great, the cinematography just wouldn’t shut me up during the movie (I looked up the type of camera they used and it’s something called a red camera–I’m in love with the cinematography that’s capable because of this camera) I’m not going to tell you what you should do right now, but I think you know…<3 ❤ ❤

(Directed and written by Jon and Andrew Erwin, also written by Cecil Strokes and Theresa Preston; Actors: Rachel Hendrix, Jason Burke, Jasmine Guy, John Schneider)

Also, today was a good day (: It was truly a Sabbath and that’s something I haven’t had in a very long time. I went outside to write with chalk with Hope, ended up playinng catch with Drew and dancing to the rap music from the car passing by, and I got to catch up with my non-blood brother, Keith and hear Raven’s voice, and look up at the clouds. Now I get to go rent another movie–God’s blessings are raining down on me today (:

Happy Birthday Momma!

Today, my mom turns another year older (due to the wishes of some involved parties I cannot disclose her age)! Suffice it to say that she is still really young (: Anyway, I thought I’d write a quick post  to let everyone know how much I love her and am grateful for all she has done and continues to do. She is truly an amazing woman with a heart for God and heart for others. She makes jokes that aren’t funny and laughs at them. She falls asleep and has to call it a night for every movie we watch. She loves to go to the library almost as much as I do. She bakes sweets out of the blue. She lets me wear her clothes. And when I tell her that I really want a smoothie, she comes back from picking up Drew and hands one to me. Of course, she also works hard, cooks, cleans, chauffeurs, nurses, and counsels, but the previous qualities are just some things that make her my mom.

I haven’t honored and cherished her nearly enough, but I love her. And I hope that she knows it.

I am so tired! But I didn’t want to title this post, ‘Tired’, cause that’s boring, so I looked up synonyms for tired and was drawn to two of them–‘pooped out’ and ‘taxed’. Since I’m not really in a light-hearted mood and because I just watched the second round of the presidential debates today, here I am, taxed. Here’s praying that my four hour shift at Bed Bath and Beyond flies like a hummingbird (:Oh and about the debates, my question is how exactly either of the two believe we’re going to come back from this 16 trillion dollar debt…and what exactly are we going to do when China comes with its ginormous army and takes over the country?…But anyways…

On a more fun topic, tomorrow’s my mom’s birthday (: and I was enamored by a wedding on stylemepretty today (: Also, I’m almost finished with this book, So You’re a Kingdom Kid; it’s been great. Now I need to start being journalistic for a grade–and write that article on Family Promise (a non-profit organization). So. Taxed. But whatever. Life happens right? My room’s a mess. I’ve got a ton of schoolwork. I probably won’t finish my college apps in time for early action. I’m getting my wisdom teeth pulled out on saturday (that is, only if my work will give me the time off). I’ve got zits. I feel fat. I miss my friends. My dad and I got in a mini argument. But I’m going to follow my own advice to my dear friend Olivia and I’m going to choose my attitude. I’m choosing right now to trust God, and be joyful anyway (while I listen to Jayme Dee’s cover of the song Cooler Than Me (: )

This is Megan on her wedding day (: Someday I’m going to look like this.
