(some kind of deep, inspirational title that relates to this blog post)

Where Do I begin? Like seriously, I have no idea how to explain this week. It has been revolutionary for me and I dont believe that is an exaggeration either.. Nope not at all. This blog is going to be a little more intense than previous ones.

I have realized that there are so many things that I need to change about my life, my habits, and my personality. And the cool thing is that I am actually taking action in it, rather than just talking about it. I have been really selfish in what I want in my life, and not thinking about what God might want with my life. There was kind of a big decision that I made that I was so reluctant to make but I know that God wanted me to do it. I had to make sure it was the right decision so I got into the Word.. and this is what God showed me.
Jeremiah 8: 4-6
4 “Jeremiah, say to the people, ‘This is what the Lord says: “‘When people fall down, don’t they get up again? When they discover they’re on the wrong road, don’t they turn back? 5 Then why do these people stay on their self-destructive path? Why do the people of Jerusalem refuse to turn back? They cling tightly to their lies and will not turn around. 6 I listen to their conversations and don’t hear a word of truth. Is anyone sorry for doing wrong? Does anyone say, “What a terrible thing I have done”? No! All are running down the path of sin as swiftly as a horse galloping into battle!

After Reading this I knew exactly what I needed to do. With making this decision God gave me so much peace and so much comfort that it was exactly what I needed to do. Its all in God's hands. This is such a cliche statement in the Christian world, but its so true, " This life is not my own." That God spoke to me about so much stuff that I am doing wrong in my relationships and how I can be more purposeful, and how I can be more of an impact player in God's Kingdom.
That Night I read this Psalm which was also really good.
Psalm 37
23 The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.

That Thursday night I went to bed at like 10 30, Which is way early. Woke up 530 for accountability group and it started out like any other group time.. But it turned into something so much more. THE CORINTHIAN COVENANT was made! I am not going into the details but its a promise that the Guys and I made to each other and to God that we will stay pure in big aspects of our lives.. No details, but seriously this is a huge thing for all of us! And I know God is already blessing it. And I love those guys so much and I am so thankful for them. Great guys right thur!!

This week has just been great, like seriously it has, and most of it was just in the past 2 days. Stuff is starting to come together!
And oh yeah! I just got a new lens. Canon 70-200 2.8 IS Lens... It is a beautiful thing, but I have not yet been able to use it to its full potential. Eventually I shall! I have a lot of photoshoots coming up that I need to tackle here soon. Which reminds me anybody want some free pet pictures?! Contact me if you do.

Tonight I am kind of being a loser and staying in tonight, but I am kind of happy to be staying in. I am going to work on a bunch of pictures and update a lot of albums cause I have really procrastinated on that for a while

Pic of the day?! YES sir.. let me see what I got.. Oh snap I have 2 pictures of the day!
This one is pretty crazy..

And one a little less crazy.. what do you think?

Really Rough start....

Oh snap I am not feeling too well right now, the taco bell I had isnt sitting well....

So ANYWAY.... I was very worried about how this day was going to end up because I had a really rough start. I will tell you why..
So Last night was just like any other Wednesday night going to the Bee's and hangin out with everyone, but this time we stayed a little later because some cool people came by like right as we were about to leave. I am totally cool with that but I did get home around 1130 and that wasn't cool cause I had some homework to do. It wasn't a lot of homework but lets just say I wasn't very concentrated last night... Like seriously I couldn't sit still, and I was having way to much fun with other things like talking to people and NOT doing my homework... Okay so long story short, I went to bed at 230 am... I have to wake up at 645 on Thursdays... you do the math!
As I wake up just regretting myself going to bed so late, I realize I slept a little later, so now i am in a slight rush. I hate being in rushes! One of my biggest pet peaves cause I feel like something bad always happens when I am in a Rush... I will continue..
But first a side note: My favorite thing on an early morning is my shower. And I dont know if your like me but on some mornings I have "the Shampoo Debate". Its the moment in your shower time when you have washed your entire body and now its time to wash your hair, but you come to a stand still.... "Do I use this shampoo? Or this one? Oh wait I could use Conditioner!... but no, I think I used that yesterday... or was that the day before that?... hmmm What do I do?" Sometimes my "Shampoo Debates" are so intense that they last several minutes! The weird thing about the "Shampoo Debates" though is that I enjoy them...dont know why but I do!

Okay so anyway back to my day! I could not have my Shower Debate this morning cause i was in a hurry. So I got all my crap together and Got all ready. When I am in a Rush I usually forget stuff so this morning I made sure I didnt! So as I was heading down stairs to head out the door, I look down toward my shoes and I see something just awful! My shoe laces on my right shoe are almost alway undone......ugghhhhhh! I forgot that some girl thought she was being so funny last night at Applebee's by undoing my shoe laces... Luckily I stopped her before undoing the entire shoe, but still it was so annoying to look down at my shoe and see that...When I am in a rush... But actually I wasnt too annoyed cause it did make me giggle.. I didnt fix them till I got to school so it was kind of funny, So in a way It acutally made me slightly Glad..HA!
When I got to school, I realized I wasnt as tired as I thought I would be(wow thats a lot of I's in one sentence).... "hmmm thats nice". As I sat in class being very pleasantly surprised that I got a good grade on my assignment considering the effort put into it, I realized I was tired... VERY Tired. I almost fell asleep at least 3 times in class, and that was being trying to stay awake. " This is my first class! How will I make it through the day?!" DING light bulb!! I have an hour break between my photography classes! I took a nap in the student lounge! OMG OMG OMG OMG It was the best Idea I have had all year! And I am so glad I found out this within the first 3 weeks of school! IT WAS .....I dont think I need to finish it.. but I will .. FRICKEN KICKEN! I awoke at 1053... 7 minutes before my next class started, and I realized I had a huge smile on my face.. I was rested! My friend Jenna let me know I had an indent from my coat on my forehead which i used as a pillow... But I didn't care, I wasn't AS tired and I was... Seriously I think I will do that every Thursday now.

So now onto other things, I kinda had a little testimony/message that Bill wanted me to share.. But the whole night was kind of unorganized and it felt kind of messy... but oh well I said What i said and I guess people thought I did good So yeah. I had like 5-10mins to cram a bunch of crap in so I was all over the place but whatev. Why I am saying this is because I found a verse that kinda goes along with what I was feeling before I started. Dont get me wrong I love speaking, and I really wish I could do it more. It was just the atmosphere that was kind of weird and I felt really rushed but anyway... I found this today during my break, and I love it

Jeremiah 1:6-7
V6. "O Soveriegn Lord" I said, " I can't speak for you! I am too young!
V7. " Don't say that," The Lord replied. " For you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. (V8) And dont be afraid of the people, for I will be with youand take care of you, I , The Lord, have spoken!

Oh man thats good stuff... Good Obedience verse and a great comfort verse. Do what He is telling you, and dont worry about it He's got your back!

Okay now for the pic of the day! Shelby is up again! OH YEAH and my teacher actually gave me a compliment on my images today! YES! Nicole said she liked mine the best, thanks nicole!!
Tell me what you think..I think I might crop it differently.. but I dont know

So here's the thing...

I was informed last week that my blog was not up to par with what it should have been, and I totally agree. So I am thinking maybe thursdays are not the best days to update my blog every week. On thursdays I usually am dead tired, and I think that can sometimes reflect with the quality of my blog. I am now rethinking if I should have another day where I do this, so I am more rested and so my blog can be ....oh yes ... FRICKEN KICKEN!
I also dont want to feel forced to update this every thurs
day, because than it becomes a chore, and I dont want that too happen! So anyway this is going to be a short one and I am sorry for that but I feel like I am being rushed... but first quick story..

You know whats one of the most annoying things that can totally ruin my day? Let me inform you. Okay Wednesday nights are usually pretty late nights because I hang out at Applebee's and than I usually get home around 1130... Not too late, but the thing is I have class at 8, and usually I dont make it to bed till like 1230, so I get pretty tired. But what happened today just got me so mad, and it only happens rarely... I 
usually set my alarm clock to 630, so I really enjoy trying to get as much rest as possible. So today I wake up cause I realized i had to pee, and I was like " Wow I am sleeping really good, one more hour and I will be all rested for the day" and So I peed and than came back to bed all excited to sleep. I thought I had at least 45 minutes left to sleep before I woke up. So I lay down, and than  say to myself "Maybe I should check the time just for kicks" ...........Its 6:22... UGHHhhhhghhghhghhhghghghghgh I hate when that happens.. I just let out a huge sigh and than set my alarm for 645 just to try to cheat my way into more sleep... but it didnt work. So now I am really tired wishing that didnt happen this morning... SO GAY.

But yeah next time I update my blog, it will be better.. so sorry if has been lacking its usual CHARM

Anyways I got a pic of the day FINALLY!... check it out.. I had a cool assignment yesterday and Shelby helped me with it... tell me what you think
