aint no way to be.

In the third century B.C. the Greek philosopher Chrysippus died of laughter after giving his donkey wine, then seeing it attempt to feed on figs.

"I've never really wanted to go to Japan. Simply because I don’t like eating fish. And I know that's very popular out there in Africa." — Britney Spears

In January 2000, Kathleen Robertson of Austin Texas was awarded $780,000.00 by a jury of her peers after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running amuck inside a furniture store. The owners of the store were understandably surprised at the verdict, considering the misbehaving tyke was Ms. Robertson's son.

When I see people wearing Crocs, I know immediately that we have nothing in common, and that we could never be friends or have any meaningful kind of relationship. They come in every color imaginable yet look bad with every other article of clothing ever created. The only thing that goes with Crocs is social ostracism.

And it feels amazing.

I will walk by faith, even when I cannot see.

coming in with nothing, leaving with the same.

you can take it all away, i dont need it.
underneath, i'll still be the same.

Tomorrow is a huge week.
Two interviews for summer internships. Both of which I want really badly. One is in Denver, the other in South Bend (IN.) $19 and $17 / hr. respectively. Potential for full-time after graduation.

Being the overachiever I am, signed a second major in Logistics Management, thus pushing me into a Dec 2007 graduation.

I just want to get on with life, but I want to enjoy being in college too. I'm all mixed up.

After my second trip to LA, I want to live there. I need the sunshine.

I'm happy with my life. Figuring out what I need, what I don't need, and who.

Returned today from a great weekend with my dad. He and I headed up to Mackinaw City after I got out of work Friday evening.
My dad built this awesome trailer thing. It has 2 cot-like beds on the wall, a window, a heater, shelves, hooks, etc etc. It's SO cool. We spent 2 nights sleeping in it and it was so cool.
Yesterday we headed to Mackinac Island and rode our bikes all the way around the island. Last night after a great day, he and I sat in foldable chairs on the beach facing the Mackinac bridge and just talked. It was great to talking and just being with him. My dad really is great - it was such a non-stressful mini-vacation...I wish it wasn't over.

jeg er ikke danske

I was driving home from a wonderful evening of food and conversation at Nina's when I heard a song on the radio that made me think of those times when you can't see the forest for the trees. Being so focused on what's going on right at this moment that you can't totally get the big picture.
It went along with something my mom said earlier today. We were driving out to the mall, and as usual I was lamenting about how I must not be cute, or fun, or great, because boys aren't that into me right now. (Which is untrue. I am cute, I am fun, and I am great. But anyway.) And my mom said to me, "When things are too hard, it's probably a God thing." And after I thought about it for awhile, I realized that she is absolutely right. That can go for anything. If it's too hard, maybe it's not what God wants. Maybe what he wants for me is right under my nose, or a million years away...who knows? Not me. But I need to trust Him and understand that even if I can't see what the big picture is because I'm focused on the little things, I need to have faith and be patient. Patience!

And now, a list of 10 things I would rather do tomorrow than work:

1. Mini-golf
2. Go to Italy
3. Eat ice cream
4. Win American Idol
5. Attend a wedding
6. Time travel
7. Walk barefoot in the grass
8. Go to a baseball game
9. Drink a blackberry green tea frappuccino
10. ... Mini-golf

I really want to go mini-golfing.

One thing I really love about life is seeing people I haven't seen in forever. I always want to say, where have you been? What have you done since I saw you last?! A couple nights ago I stopped by a Wesco I rarely stop at, and working the register was a friend from middle school. We did the whole "How are you, I'm good" talk and then she told me she got married recently. WHAT? That's a big deal! I don't want to miss a thing in anyone's life.

Will I ever see all the things He sees in me?
