so i went to a homecoming today for a friend from high school. hard to believe its been 2 years since he's been gone. how time flies. the funny thing is, i am sitting in the chapel just smiling at him, and after his talk i go up to say hi and he told me that he didn't recognize me at first. he said he knew that he should know who i am, and then he realized who i was. it was funny, cause i didn't think i had changed that much, but then i guess he probably remembers me as the girl with glasses, and now i wear contacts, my hair is tons longer than it was back then, and he thinks its a different color although i haven't changed it, the sun might have, but i haven't, and he just said i look older, which is good. i asked my mom and dad what they thought, and they said that i had definitley changed in the past two years, but for the better and not for the worse. which i think is crazy, but then it makes me think what will all my other friends think? they all start coming home and i wonder what they will think of me? so who knows. i know i have changed, and i wonder if they'll like the changes. i sure hope so.

Strange dreams...

Okay, so I had weird dreams and some of my friends were in it, but because of the nature of the dreams I am not going to use their normal nyms so that when they read this they don't freak out okay?

so I am all sleeping, and for some reason I go and tell dance teacher boss that I am engaged, and somehow she now works in a bridal shop that is popular here in my town. So I am at this bridal shop and I tell them what I am looking for in a dress, and they have me try on some very interesting dresses. Some immodest, some modest, some gorgeous, some ugly, and while I am doing this boy #1 comes in and looks like he's going to cry. He tells me that he is lost or something and is just super depressed and so I am sitting next to him, in a bridal store, next to boy#1 trying to comfort him, and I hold his hand, and then when I go to hold it again, he like gets super scared of me being forward cause he finds out I'm not really engaged, even though earlier I said I was, but now I'm not. So he 'runs away' b/c I am being so forward.
-that was like 2 dreams, but they blended so it was weird.

my 3rd dream consisted of me now, walking on campus, on a familiar path and I see boy#1 again but he doesn't see me as I am coming up behind him. And I get the sudden urge to just go up to him and hold his hand (obviously something has been on my mind...) and so I do, and he like stops, looks at me, says wow, and we keep walking hand in hand, and we talk a little and end up dating.

So NOW, my question to all you guys, and any one else with a comment, is what if some girl that you knew, and had been on at least one date with, had been friends for a very long time with, came up to you while walking and just suddenly grabbed your hand and held it? What would you think? Would you drop her hand? Keep holding it? Run away? Kiss her? What do you think? Is this an experiment that I should try in real life? I have always considered it, but have never done it...So readers (how few and in between you are) lend your thoughts...

me madre sent this to me today...makes you think.

Cell Phone vs. Bible
I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our
cell phones?
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we used it to receive messages?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to kids as gifts?
What if we used it as we traveled?
What if we used it in case of an emergency?
What if we upgraded to include 24/7 tech service from the Holy Spirit?
Is this something to make you go...hmmm...where is my Bible?
Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phones, we dont ever have to
worry about our bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid
the bill!

one hurt toe along with a walk in the rain

so i wad dancicng on monday in my ballet class, and i was doing a leap when all of a sudden as i was coming down, my toe got in the way, and wham, i landed on it. at first i thought i had just stubbed my toe but when i went down to the training room for the trainer to treat my knee, my toe still hurt. she took a look at the toe, played around with it a little and declared it sprained. tuesday i went to class, but i couldn't do much, and i was sad because many of the combinations they were doing are my favorite kind. sad :( so last night with my taped up toe, i took a step outside and lo and behold it was cloudy, sprinkling, slightly breezy and smelled like rain! how i wished i could have gone on a walk with a boy (even with my sprained toe that hurts to walk, do anything really...) but alas, with no boy around to go with me i took a mini walk around my complex by myself and relished the beautiful weather. and that was that. and that's all i have to say today. ciao.

Saturday, July 08, 2006 i'm a girl

yeah. its true. if you didn't know that by now, then well...your dumb. but i am definitely a girl. i danced last night at a party with a kid i had never met before, and man it was fun. it was 2 slow songs and we just danced as if we were in love, now i don't know this kid, and that's not the point, the point is i like it, and i wouldn't mind loving someone right now. in fact, i just finished reading a sappy love story....and again i want to be in love. that's the problem with reading and watching movies about love....i always want to love someone afterwards. and by love i mean have a boyfriend that will cuddle with me, someone who will talk with me in the evenings, someone that isn't my roommate. so yeah. if you're out there...come looking for me, cause gosh darn it i want to love somebody.
