Not Taking Showers In A Dirty World

I'm done being depressed. It's really not that cool, I've discovered. It's more so artistic. Feeling artsy makes me feel like I could create whatever I wanted to, and nobody, no one, could critique it.
On the flip side, I've forgotten about God. I've forgotten about everything He does. I've even forgotten to talk to Him. And it completely sucks. Nothing has sucked more. I'm wallowing in self-pity. My thoughts are all nitty-gritty. I lay down in my comforters and waste away, every day. Screw it. Not today, not any other day.
Isaiah 65, Isaiah 65 will save my life.
I am so sick of being a man. What has man ever done without God? Everything good was created by God, so anything good that anyone has done "apart" from Him has essentially done His work, whether they face the fact or not.

...Have i.

I really hate writing essays that aren't personal.

You don't know what you got 'til it's gone.

Let love perpetual shine on your face!

I used to be a Super Super Reader. I have a feeling that my elementary teachers would be slightly disappointed now. Haha.

Best Buy's looking pretty promising. Oh, life, you.

You can't trick the tooth fairy, man!

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

We don't need approval to do what is righteously placed in our hearts. No, seriously.

Sunday, September 27, 2009

I'm tired of feeling for the common man. Do something I haven't seen before.

Sunday, September 6, 2009

Please tell me again, LORD.

Sunday, August 30, 2009

You are living between two planes now: somewhere between the ceiling and the floor.

Ska music brightened my life today.

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

I wonder if you can just know when you know.

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Sarcasm is actually a really nice tactic, bro.

Thursday, July 9, 2009

I really enjoy seeing some of the greatly artistic-in-its-own-way things put or write on their MySpaces. Honestly. It's really cool. It's like, 'I'm friends with that person?? Wow..' What visionaries.

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Where did I come from this? Anxiety from forgetfulness.

Monday, July 6, 2009

What happened to The Jetsons over the years? They got bigger and very much less entertaining.

Sunday, July 5, 2009

I love The Gear so much.
Things are amazing. God finds the time at the weirdest times, but I thoroughly enjoy it. [insert giant smiley here]

Friday, July 3, 2009

I don't know.

My tummy hurts. The giggles result in pain.

Be strong. The LORD will do what is good in his sight. -2 Samuel 10:12

Why is it that all I wanna hear is sad songs?
Something slow all day.

I lost not one, but two friends, and God is the only one who will give them back.

Saturday, June 27, 2009

God's mercy is far above anything earthly.

I guess I understand why people don't like Silverstein. I mean, I can get it. But they're sense of melody is dumbfounding. They write beautiful guitar lines and thus, beautiful songs. Kudos to them.
Henry Rollins keeps repeating in my head.

Stride commercials are so clever.
Wow. I spy, with my little eye,

If I could change things.. I have a feeling I would.

If I post to this in the next 2 days, then I give up. And I can't do that.
I could write a lot of notes to myself. Here's one: make 11 better.
Is it in our nature that we constantly do stuff to each other?
Go on, just say it: I don't regret much, but giving up on You was one of the dumbest decisions I've made just yet.

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Have you ever wondered what in the world happened? Me neither.
I feel like all the advice I've ever given my friends I should just take.
When I wrote it, I think I meant it this time.

Friday, June 12, 2009

I want a couple of readers. But I don't really deserve it.

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I owe people bigtime.

Monday, June 8, 2009

The Boston Tea Party.. Those dudes were so punk rock.
Things seem better.

The LORD won a great victory for all Israel, and you saw it and were glad. -1 Samuel 19:5
I dare our world to stand for something bigger than ourselves. No, seriously.

Wednesday, June 3, 2009

I think things are finally starting to evenly spread.

God is above all. God, sing me this song.

1 Samuel 12:20-21. There is some REALLY good stuff in the Old Testament.

Friday, May 29, 2009

I don't know where to start, but I'm leaving this cellular device. I have notes to take. Bye.
Muddy Waters is a king.

I love the punkness of summer. I hate how I say the word 'punk' all the time. But then again, I don't care, so punk rules.
I love the summer, but I strongly dislike the heat (only) sometimes.

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

I thoroughly enjoy last days of anything.

Monday, May 25, 2009

I have had fun. Please listen to something groovy. Thank you. Have a wonderful night. :-)
Although this year sucked, it absolutely did not suck.

How in the world does God redeem me so easily? It completly baffles and amazes me.
Today's gon be a good day. :-)

Star Treck is beastly. And this weekend is a little too loooong. Goodnight.
I heart Jesus. :-)
June is going to be sooo boring. Marching Band practice and housework. I'll HAVE to get some shows atThe Gear now. Hooray!
I am very bored. And I'm craving some o' that good 'ol Indiana corn. Thank you. That will be all for this five minutes. P.S. These are coming from my phone, just to let you know. Tweet.
Sigur Ros. I just learned how to say their [icelandish] name today. I'm in love with it. I forget what it means, though. Maybe something like 'victory rose?' not sure. Check them out anyways. They make you feel amazing. And they've been around practically as long as I've been alive. Sweet stuff.
Think of this as my twitter. You are now reading a tweet. You've been tweeted.
Computer is dead! Arrgh. Arr. Hardy har har. But seriously.

I was thinking about how much I strongly dislike Geometry today. And then I started to wonder what things I do and don't like that being with "g," all for various reasons.

I like...
(The) Gaslight Anthem
Geoff Rickley
The words "gah" and "gadzooks"
Gene Vincent
The Gear music venue

I don't like...
getting up
gross stuff

Thank You.
P.S. What words do you like, in general? I kinda wanna know. In fact, everytime you think of a new word that you take a liking to, comment this blog. Cool, man, cool.
