      Laughter is the Best Medicine

      3 years ago

      Had an awesome time playing Peggle with a friend tonight on XBL. He lives many many many miles away, but he made me laugh harder than I have laughed in MONTHS. How I needed to laugh!

      My internship is finished, I'm struggling to figure out what to do about jobs and my future, and I was supposed to get married 2 months from now. But I was laughing so hard that tears were pouring out of my eyes. I was happy, uninhibited, and felt like myself again, and I still feel this way as I'm writing this! This is a very positive breakthrough.

      Thank you to everyone around here that makes me smile- even if it is just a funny journal or comment post that I read on your page. You help me get through tough stuff with laughter, and that is the very best medicine. smiley12.gif

      "Would your 10 year old self be proud of who you are now?"

      3 years ago

      This is an amazingly profound question that my friend posted on fb that has really made me think.

      Let's be honest. We are probably not sure. I know I'm not.

      Thoughts?

      Changes

      3 years ago

      So, I have about a month left of my internship before I am officially finished. I can't believe that it is almost over and that I may become even more at a crossroad then I already am if I end up having to find a job somewhere else. Hopefully I can stay here, there is a job opening in the summer, but things in life aren't perfect and I have learned in a very hard way not to expect anything.

      I had a wonderful bible study group that I have been studying with, but had to leave them due to the leader of the group cornering me in his car and trying to take advantage of me. I will miss studying with the people that I do care about in the group, and I seriously hate having to start over from scratch trying to find another friend circle. And as if I haven't experienced enough pain recently, I had to have something like this reconfirming to me that some guys you come to trust can really screw you over.

      My grandma passed away February of 2011, and about a week ago her house that has been in our family for almost 4 generations has been sold. Having to say goodbye to that house and the beautiful garden my great-grandmother planted before I was even born, has been very hard. Her house is right on the river, in one of the prettiest neighborhoods you could ask for, and the sunrises outside of my grandma's bedroom window would take your breath away. If I had all the money to have purchased and kept the house I would have.

      My wonderful roommate Sacred is moving to Atlanta tomorrow for a great job opportunity and getting to reunite with her sister. I will miss her so much, and it will be a big adjustment coming to an empty apartment without her. She has been the best roommate and support I could have ever asked for, and as happy as I am for her, I am so sad to see her go. Thank you for everything Melissa. smiley12.gif

      And so, here I am, working my ass off and wondering where my life is going. I experience a lot of moments wondering who I am anymore and realizing just how drastically different I am now than I was less than 6 months ago. Who am I? Who will I be? Why are all of these things happening at this point in my life? What is God's plan for my life? What am I supposed to be doing that I may not be doing? I am hoping so much that things get better soon.

      In the meantime, I had a wonderful person email me that cared and it has made such a difference in my life today. This is exactly what I need. Something so simple as to say I wish to get to know you better because you are a great person, is like a breath of fresh air. I hope that this continues to grow and that my worries will do the opposite.

      This was merely a release of emotions, and although not many people follow me or may be able to even read this whole thing, I appreciate that you made it to the end. Most people won't see this post, but I just needed to write it.

      Oh Hello There!

      4 years ago

      Oh geez. I haven't written a journal since...July?

      UPDATE TIME!

      So, I moved. Not too far though! I'm in Orlando now doing a Child Life internship until the end of April. Seriously LOVE the hospital and the people that I work with! To top off the awesome, I am currently living with Sacred at least until my internship is over. Crossing my fingers that this will eventually become a permanent job here since there are a couple positions opening up in the summer including Pediatric Outpatient Surgery, or the Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.

      Oh, and I graduated from UF in December too! Woot!

      Drastically cut my hair as well!

      Got plenty of more updates for you...but it would seriously take more than a page! So if you are interested, just ask. :)

      How is everyone doing?!? Updates? Amazingness happening in your lives? I hope so <3 Tell me about it!

      Child Life and Child's Play

      4 years ago

      Wow.

      I just wanted to mention to everyone that Child's Play is really legit. On the last day of my Child Life practicum we got a package directly from Child's Play which shipped a box load of video games for our Child Life Program! There must have been at least 40 games, all ranging from xbox, PS3, PS2, gameboy, and the D.S. It was so cool to be able to see a charity that I know some of Jeff's friends do, and that some of you do as well, actually being direct and personal to each individual Child Life Program!! Child's Play, Caps for Kids, Make a Wish Foundation, and Children's Miracle Network all make a difference in these children's lives everyday. I've never seen charities so direct before and it is definitely a profound thing to experience.

      Thank you guys for all that you do!!! It really does make a difference!!!

      Wow I apparently didn't look close enough! That's crazy. Seriously though? I did listen to a few, including that guy with 28 votes, and you were way better. There are good ones, and bad ones, and yours is definitely a good one. :)


      Thanks hun! I think my friends are crazy when they say I have a memorable voice, and I do indulge them in their beliefs and their confidence of my abilities.

      But really, I know some people just naturally have a voice that is destined to be recorded, and I definitely don't count myself among them. And I definitely can't claim I have the natural pacing for narration. (Jengaship, for example, I would consider a natural at this sort of thing.)

      However, it's really fun to try; and I love my friends, because they believe in me, and they make me believe that maybe, with a lot of work and stubbornness and determination, I might succeed at this whole crazy voice-thing.

    • Jabberwocky

      My vote is all in for you! How did that guy get 28 votes??? It was terrible! Hope you win :)


      Thanks, sugar!

      The guy with the most votes has like 900! Criminy. I honestly haven't listened to anyone's audition yet because I'm afraid they are like a billion times better than mine, lol, I'm a wuss.

      Also, as much as I hate it, using that goopy mentholatum and rubbing it on your chest.


      I hate this stuff too. However, I was desperate enough last night to try it and rubbed some of it on my throat (where the swelling/aching is) and when that cooling sensation kicked in, it helped a little bit. I've been rubbing it on today too, since every little bit helps. :)

      As far as improving goes he has said many times he would, and it does improve for a while, but then it happens again.

      He even lost his friend Stephy because of lies and didn't stop. Sadly, it made me feel a little better to know it wasn't just me he lied to.

      It is hard when people forget important things. Maybe you should get him some ginkgo biloba - I hear it is good for the memory!

      Also, you and Jeff are very cute together. :)

      Love the first link to the pajama bottoms, and omghowcute! I would totally go ahead and put ruffles on that shirt for real regardless- unless you're not into it. :)


      The first pajama bottoms are way too cute (pretty tempted to lengthen them actually, and add a ruffle so it's like Victorian bloomers). Also, the first time I made the shirt, the ruffles made me look wider! I actually really love ruffles! But the last thing a girl wants is to look wider.
