Bargain Shopper.

I LOVE ROSS! Ross. The Store. Their motto: Dress for Less. Yup. LOVE. I went today & got my homecoming dress (a little early I know, but I fell in love with it) for like $23 and a couple shirts for like 8 bucks. Hahaha. I am totally against name brands completely. Sorry, I’m not gonna pay $80 for a pair of jeans when i could a BETTER pair at ross for like $15. Bargain shopping ftw.

Ravens Fan..whether I want to admit it or not…

When you’re born in Bmore to Bmore natives, you’re stuck as a Raven’s fan for life. haha. Now that I actually understand the game of football, my favorite team is the Jets and that will never change. I love them. & not even bandwagon love, I started loving them when everyone else was hatin. But tonight, watching the Ravens, I rememebered why I love them and always will. It’s not their purple uniforms or awesome game play, but after the whistle is blown.. those little arguments that lead to straight up fist fights on the field. Hahaha. What can I say? The Jets are all talk, but the Ravens are just like *PUNCH*. Not condoning violence…just makes watching a football game that much more exciting.

Blown Away.

Jeremiah 29:11-13
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”

Kinda crazy that He promises in this verse that He hears me when I call out to Him. The God who I sin against daily, hears me, loves me, forgives me, blesses me, and promises me hope and welfare. He promises that when I seek Him with all my heart, i’ll find Him, THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. crazy crazy stuff. He is my life. Blown away at His love.

My Whole Life.

“How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure”
I don’t think words have ever hit me so powerfully.

One dime richer.

Two things I really like: gift shops and starbucks. One thing i really don’t like: saving the environment. It’s definately no secret that I am not a huge fan of “green” things or saving the environment. Yeah, I like nature, but I feel no need to go out of my way to recycle or reuse. Yup, I know these days there aren’t very many people that feel the same way as me and I was content there in my thinking until I went to the aquarium the other day. Now I am a HUGE fan of giftshops. Whereever I go, if there’s a giftshop, I’ll be there. Probably won’t buy anything, but just looking around at the cool little gifts they have makes me happy. Yup, weird. But anyway, I was in about my 5th giftshop of the day when I saw THE CUP. As I looked around, it made me take a 2nd glance. There it was, in the ‘protect the earth’ section, right on the shelf next to the bowls made from elephant poop paper. It’s simply a clear plastic cup with a clear plastic straw and a little earth logo on the side. I was drawn to it. Something about just made me want it. That was my souvenir from the day. And usually the little souvenirs I get lose their coolness after a day or two, BUT NOT THIS CUP. Because earlier today, I found out that Starbucks will fill up your reusable cup with any drink you order and give you a 10 cent discount on your drink. Guess who loves the environment & her reusable cup even more now.

Estoy aprendiendo espaΓ±ol.

I took Spanish for two years before, but had to switch to Latin because of my school program. Lately, I really wish I could have stuck with Spanish to help me later in life. Since I can’t take any classes for it at school at the moment and I’m really not that into spending money on Rosetta Stone, I have a new theory for learning Spanish. Babies learn language from it being constantly spoken around them, so I am going to try and learn Spanish by listening to Spanish radio for the next few years. Sounds kinda absurd, but even if it doesn’t work, I’ll get to learn some really awesome Spanish songs in the mean time. Haha I’ve been singing along to the Spanish radio (basically me just making random noises and making r’s by rolling my tongue) hoping this will help speed along my learning. If little kids can learn from Dora, I can learn from Spanish radio. πŸ™‚Β  Wish me luck! Deseame suerte!

BRACE FACE!

Tomorrow I’m getting braces, compared to having a palate expander for 9 months, 2 years of braces seems like nothing. A palate expander could quite possibly the worst thing i’ve ever experienced in my life. It basically is a little piece of torture in my mouth all the time & for 5 weeks my mom had to turn it once or twice a day to slowly widen my mouth and give me a Michael Strahan gap. Thankfully that closed up & it’s justΒ  been sitting in my mouth waiting for the bone to grow back. WELLLL….. tomorrow is a WONDERFUL day because besides getting metal in my mouth my palate expander comes out!! πŸ˜€ Well atleast that’s what my orthodontist said. He’s kinda REALLY creepy. He’s this old guy who has a wooden leg and wears bright pink pants. He also always calls me the wrong name. ALWAYS. even when my ortho sheet is infront of him. Its always “Oh hey cory!” or “Carly we ready to get those teeth straight??” or “How you doin today Sarah?.. or was it Anna?” He’s just really weird! & there’s 2 ortho’s @ the place i go to and this one always tells me the exact opposite of the good one! Last time he told me something completely wrong and i almost went all Darla from Nemo on him. haha πŸ™‚ well hopefully i’ll have the good one tomorrow so that my palate expander gets taken out and nothing goes wrong w. my braces πŸ™‚

Purpose?

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the purpose for life. Like Why am I here? The answer that I hear a lot is go to school & graduate, go to college & graduate, and then get married, have kids, watch them grow up, retire. I don’t see how this answer can be satisfying. I knew the “sunday-school” answer I was supposed to have and should have. I thought that had been my answer, but until now I really wasn’t making that my purpose. But I was thinking about what I’ve made the purpose of MY life. With always being in school and always having to worry about my grades, it’s hard to see my true purpose. I gave my life to Jesus Christ and trusted in him back in 6th grade and I know that I have had a true and wonderful relationship with Christ ever since, but I never really truly thought about my purpose. I was getting swept up in the fast pace of life.Β  I think that for a long time I had been making my purpose the usual that I said above. End result being marriage & kids. I always think about who I’m going to marry one day what my kids will look like, etc. But it hit me the other day, what happens when I’m married with kids? What will my purpose be then? I have really been thinking hard and after reading from my Bible and praying and thinking, God has shown me that the purpose for my life is praising and glorifying Him in everything that I do. This is my purpose, the reason God put me on this Earth. He sent his Son to die for my sins so that I could have a real and true relationship with him and all this time I was wasting my life not thanking him and giving him glory in everything that I do. But now He has let me see my true purpose and not waste any more of my life on other things. It’s not that I’m not going to do school or get married or have kids, but they won’t be #1 in my life & as I go through life I’m going to try to give him the glory through school, marriage, and kids. Jesus came and died for me & I’m going to live for Him in everything that I do! πŸ˜€

1 John 1: 16 & 17

“For all that is the world-the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing along with its desires but whoever does the will of God abides forever.”
