As i reminisce about the past year and where i was to where i am now, i realize one thing: life is very unpredictable. In every aspect of my life it’s led me to this moment where i am today. And if there is anything i’m taking away from 2011 it’s that i’m truly thankful for everything in my life. From the friends i’ve made to the job i currently possess to the family i have. From the beginning to now, i feel like a more confident person and not because i alone have will power, but it’s God who is helping me along in this journey of my life. To tell you the truth for so many years i’ve always felt lonely to the point i wished & prayed to have a boyfriend and God never led me to a guy i felt worthy for me to date and listening to my heart is the most important thing and i’m still working on it. I havent got it down to a science or anything. Earlier this year i got caught up having crushes on guys who didnt like me and i filled my head with false hope of any chance with these guys. I was a stupid girl because of this and now i’m here to tell you that God’s been changing me these last few months of 2011 and i no longer feel the need to have guys “fill that hole” i’ve been wanting filled for so long. I felt convinced that if i had a boyfriend i’d be something special and this was lie i kept telling myself since i was thirteen. I had been told my whole life that God was the only one to “fill this hole” but i never actually believed it and then these last few months hit me hard and i began to really look into my faith with God, and i can confidently tell you today that God has filled this hole. i thank him every night now for the blessings i have in my life. So all i have to say is this: thank-you 2011 for one interesting year, but you wont be missed, i only hope that i learned my lessons for good this past year and through those lessons i can make better choices for my future. So with any further adu bring it on 2012, i’m ready ;)
“Just take a moment to be thankful for the excessive good things you have or the one tiny, barely-there thing that you have. Appreciate that little bit and hold it tight, and know that one day, you will not have it. That’s the way the world works, and that’s why it is so shit, and that is why it is so awesome.”—Philip DeFranco (via lappeldu-vide)
“Dont let someone older than you talk down to you. Age is not an all encompassing thing that you get to wave around and say ‘I’m right, you’re wrong’ because here’s a thing you eventually learn: grown-ups usually do not know more; they just have more responsibilities and that just makes them feel right. So desire to have your own opinions, desire to be different, do not just agree with your parents or me or anything……. age really doesn’t mean anything.”—Philip Defranco (December 1st, 2011 PDS)
I’m not sure if I’m really proud of this because of my singing, because it’s decent, but the fact that there’s so many tracks going on makes me happy. Because typically garageband stops working when I add so many.
Sorry to Sam, because I couldn’t find the album cover she made when I posted this~
I am so excited to share with you a project I am currently a part of. East of Kensington, a Senior Thesis Film I am currently Social Media Director on at Chapman University, is a dark, introspective retelling of the story of Peter Pan. It is such an incredible story…
I believe in Neverland, and if you do reblog this as well. it’s not about whether you have money to help with the fundraising, all they ask (myself included) is to spread the word about this film.
