I came across this website and was quite convicted. Reading statistics about how much money we Americans spend on unnecessary things makes me realize how selfish we truly are. No wonder we have this "I-am-so-good-in-and-of-myself-and-I-don't-need-God" mentality. God, please forgive us and help us to not be blinded by our unnecessary wealth.

It is scientifically impossible to laugh while you are not breathing. I should know...I tried it today. My roommate almost killed me with her humor. On top of that, I had a massive gulp of McDonald's Iced Coffee in my mouth. Laughter and iced coffee aren't meant to be enjoyed together, I learned. But I also came to the realization that the best way to die would be to die laughing.
A couple weeks ago, one of my teachers sent me a thank you email for participating in class. Keep in mind, this was not a response to an email I sent him...he just sent it out of the blue. I thought it was the funniest thing EVER! (You might not understand why it is so funny, but know that it is. lol.) Today, I got another thank you from a teacher. This, on the contrary, was a response to an email I had sent, but it was funny nonetheless. "Thank you for being a conscientious student," it said. Hahaha! I just must be majorly amazing or something!

"We live in a confused culture." That's what my mom said today as we were leaving the mall.
Today was amazing!
Yvonne and I walk into the caf at lunch and Wanda greets us by saying "Yo yo yo!" Now, if you know who Wanda is, you'd understand why that is so funny. If not, it might benefit you to know that she is a cute, little old woman.
Funny, I find myself getting a lot out of novels. Granted, they ARE christian novels so I guess that's the point.
So, jillian totally gets cool points. Because of her, i have made spontaneous history! Jillian, ashley, and i are driving to san diego right now for the shane and shane concert! Yay! I have never done something like this so all of a sudden! Totally decided to go and left in like five minutes. Ha!
There is no Acts 8:37. The only versions that have the missing verse 37 are the King James and the New King James.
I was reminded of the man today. (He was one of the people we talked to in England. Read about him here.)
