Let me just do a recap on my feelings of last night.
…heart pounding… head hot….
The warmth of good friends.
A confirmation of stuff I already know.
A lot of hugs.
A lot of words of love.
Those are my feelings in a nutshell after last night.
I had the opportunity to sit and tell my life story to my bible study group.
I was nervous naturally.
I invited some friends from work.
They actually came!
It took a little bit of persuading, but, they came for me. To support me. Only.
I was honored that they would step out of their comfort zone to go to some random person’s house with people they didn’t know just to hear me tell my life story.
After I was done…
That is when I knew that the Lord had me in Virginia for a reason.
Knowing that your in the right place at the right time.
The preparation that has to be done in order for you to be in that right place at that right time.
It is a very, very challenging journey.
I didn’t think something as simple as my life story would change a life… would change an outlook on a life.
I still think my story is stupid. I do. But what God does with my stupid insignificant story isn’t stupid at all.
One of my friends, who I adore, thanked me for inviting her.
She texted me.
She has written out her life story in a letter and no one has ever been given the privilege to see her life as I’m about to.
God is using me. And I see it.
Don’t be afraid to love people. No matter their differences in belief or background.
To love unconditionally is the greatest gift you could give to someone.
Because unconditional love is Jesus loving through you.
Today is my dad’s birthday.
Why is that when I go out to the clubs to babysit I never can sleep for more than 4 hours?
Its most likely all the coffee consumption.
I sat on the floor in a bathroom stall last night for an hour with a friend while she had her head in the toilet.
I learned how to read her one hand that moved around.
One motion meant, “give me water.”
The other motion meant, “I feel like shit.”
New Years Eve is soon.
I better get phone calls from my drunk friends.
I dont want them driving anywhere.
My room is clean.
Movie night Tuesday at a friends house.
I’m learning how to make enchiladas.
Read Proverbs 8 today.
Because today is the 8th.
Let me do a brief update on my new roommates.
I absolutely love them.
All they do is watch movies and bake cupcakes and drink tons of gross soda.
Its freaking awesome.
I never thought I would watch professional wrestling again.
but then… I met mary.
My roommate who watches wrestling every monday and friday night.
Clearly.. wrestling is fake.
However, mary does not care.
Its freaking awesome.
I have my own little loft in my new house.
A living room, small kitching, bathroom and bedroom.
I hope to have movie night on Friday night.
Everyone is invited.
I have the best friends ever.
For my birthday I was taken to the eye doctor.. they paid for my exam and bought me 2 pairs of glasses.
Then.. taken to the mall and bought a new outfit… this girl dropped a 100 bucks on me.
I was thankful the entire day.
Watching a creation vs. Evolution debate.
The evolution side isnt making a very good case for themselves.
My lease for my new house is taking so much longer then expected.
I just want it done.
Halloween is soon.
Pumpkin carving party anybody??
Christmas is soon.
Egg nog and ugly sweaters?
My birthday is Friday.
So far.. this has been the best birthday week by far.
Yesterday was a great turn out for movie night.
Good friends got me cupcakes with candles and star wars toys.
Tomorrow some more good friends are kidnapping me from home with a blindfold at 9am. I have no idea what’s going to happen. But I’m stoked.
Tomorrow night Keagans with more good friends.
Friday night is bowling with more friends.
All I asked for for my birthday was to hang out with people. I love it.
I hate tumblr.
I hate the platform.
I’m in search of a new platform.
Wordpress? Xanga(I cant bring myself to go back to xanga)…. LiveJournal? Maybe just a simple blogger that google offers.
My eyes are peeled.
Also.. I feel like I dont offer many pictures of my life.
This one is my favorite so far….
Bought a condom tie thinking they were ghosts.
Saddest day of my life.
Just returned from watching the picture show.
One Day… with Anne Hathaway (sp?) I’m to lazy to google spelling.
It was ok. I liked it. I didnt LOVE it. But It wasnt a waste of my money either.
Should I bring xanga back?
I’m going to be a peanut for the food drive.
A peanut costume has been made and apparently I’m the only one small enough to fit in it.
I have to meet children at a school as the peanut.
Working at Cheesecake Factory is not only a serving job… It comes with other tasks, like being a giant peanut and making car wash fliers.
I miss my old house.
I miss my old roomies.
Its weird where life leads you.
New relationships are growing.
Old relationships aren’t what they used to be.
Life completely sucks one minute and then in a split second life brings you gifts and its a constant party.
The only thing consistent in life is Jesus.
My lappy has been “charging” all day.
With 20% battery left you would never know that I have only been on the computer 7min.
I miss my mom.
I hope I get Thanksgiving time off to visit home.
Looking forward to an early morning run.
Also… really brief…
This superstitious co-worker of mine randomly asked for my date of birth.
She adds up some numbers then looks at me and says, “your full of joy and your wise. You also struggle with co-dependency. Your numbers are rare.”
Then she walks away.
It was the strangest thing ever.
Then! tonight, this other girl looks at my palm. Looks at me and says, “You will have no kids, and you will have a life and death experience in your late 30s. Also, you’re going to die rich.”
Then says, “Don’t depend on what I just said to you. Its sin to have your palms read or have tarrot cards… and gamble. Its a sin to gamble.”
So freaking weird.
Today is the 7th correct?
I’m not sure.
I’m almost certain that I wrote the 6th yesterday on my paper work after work.
This weekend I have made a good chunk of change.
I worked 22 hrs in 2 days, but it was well worth it.
Good co-workers I have.
A lot junk food after work.
Fries are considered junk food I guess.
When you see an obese person eating burgers and fries, then yes, the potato is automatically considered a junk food.
I’m off work today. Not by choice. I’m in over time. Lame.
I wish I was at work.
I get so bored! What do people do all day at home, with a dog and a sleeping child?
New home I hope soon.
I dont mind it here in Chesapeake.
Its easy going.
However, I get bored. Its quite.
It is Taco Tuesday today.
I invite a good 20 people every week to come out for tacos and a movie and only like 2 faithful people actually show.
Then the next day I have the other 18 people be like, “hey, sorry I didn’t text you back I was ________.”
Fill in the blank.
It never fails.
Tonight for the movie we will be checking out Apollo 18.
I’m excited to be mixing up the genres for a change.
Again… i’m super bored
I’m out of things to write.
This week a good friend is moving to Florida.
Don’t be worried.
She was a pirate for Halloween last year.
She will be missed.
I love her a lot.
But now… that she is leaving.. I have a great excuse to travel to Florida and visit Disney World.
Oh yes people.
I do plan on being at Disney World for freaking Christmas time!!
Today will consist of much partying I feel like.
Happy Hour and then a Bar and then a birthday part in a hotel somewhere.
THE cool thing is people know I love Jesus.
At the last party a guy called me Jesus for the entire night.
Not gonna lie.. It was a little weird.
But… to be honest… In a way… its actually really cool that people know I love Jesus without me saying anything.
I was asked to keep someone accountable in their drinking habits tonight.
The rules are for her…
After that… Just coffee…
I’m excited to see what the night holds.
I will have my camera.
Many pics will be taken.
Until next time…
Vanessa a.k.a Jesus will be back next time….
