What this is all about....

So I suppose before I posted all that crazy stuff I should say what this blog is for. In high school I wrote from the local newspaper. I love writing and when i graduated I no longer had a way of getting my thoughts out to the world. When writing for the Dominion Post I got to voice my opinion on tons of issues. Well for example, one I thought of just this morning was how our culture kind of shoves Thanksgiving aside in our world today. With decorations for CHristmas already being put up on High Street this morning I was reminded of that article I once wrote.

With this blog I hope to get those same issues discussed and for those people who ask me if I am a journalism major because of what I wrote in high school can now read this blog and read some articles that I wrote then, and things I will be writing now.
I'll try to update everyday or every couple days whenever something comes to mind!

Hope you enjoy reading... Not sure if this will fall through or if anyone will actually care... but just thought I'd give it a shot!

MAKE SURE TO LEAVE COMMENTS LETTING ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! Feel free to let me know even if it's a negative comment or you don't agree with what I say! :-)



Lately I have come to the conclusion that LIFE is absolutely a crazy thing. We go around living our daily lives, having this plan of what is going to happen each day. Some days those things are completely different than what we expected. Sometimes this completely ruins our day, or it makes our day so much better.
College makes life especially crazy. They say that this should be the best time of our lives. We're being educated, most of us are out there having fun and making new friends, but at the same time, most of us are going stir crazy from stress. Going out of our minds trying to get good grades, manage time between friends or boyfriends/girlfriends, going to our clubs and groups, and having time for ourselves. Now I am pretty sure that all this stress we put on ourselves is in fact taking years AWAY from our life. Really, we're just losing days off our life when we get stressed out over a test, or a paper, or managing time. and for what?! This education that will send us straight to our jobs, straight to a working lifestyle of , in most cases, even more stress. Then, we'll get married. MORE STRESS! then... we'll start having babies.... and the stress levels begin to hit maximum capacity. At that point of babies running around and growing up, what our parents always told us of "you're on my last nerve" will be true. Because from high school decisions of where to go to college stresses most out, or even the stress of becoming a teenager, all this until the day we die!!! life is all about managing stress.

So, today I realize that life is most definitely a CRAZY thing and that I need to manage stress more efficiently. Instead of living my life for today, and making my own expectations, to rely more on God and what He is going to do with my day, and my life.
