T5) A time when you thought about ending your own life
I think “suicide” is definitely a phase that every person experiences more or less in life. Some people just never grow out of it.
When i was like 13 (-_-;;) i was sad or mad…or something and went to my room. I wrote this letter to my parents telling them i was going to kill myself (-_-;;;;;). Anyway, i had been crying super hard and eventually cried myself to sleep, note in hand. I woke up…still alive obviously, and thought in that moment how incredibly stupidly i was behaving and also thinking how grateful i was my parents didn’t find the note (they would have probably beat me the suicide out of me)…and grateful that i hadn’t killed myself.
I don’t like when some people hear “religion” and automatically think of a stereotypical southern baptist zealot who’s self righteous, closed minded, and is a “hypocrite.”
1) everyone’s a hypocrite. don’t be stupid. 2) religion is practicing actions that are based on a set of beliefs (abridged grace definition) 3) not everyone who practices religion can be reduced to any kind of cookie cutter mold.
I mean, ideally, the followers of a particular doctrine SHOULD emanate and epitomize those beliefs, but we’re human and i feel like perfection is something that is only embodied by God.
I feel like religion is dogmatic, doctrinally based, customary, and entrenched in tradition. I don’t think that I practice a religion. But i DO know that i AM trying to work on a relationship with God.
I refuse to believe that with all the beauty in the world, that it just happened by chance. I refuse to believe that anything humanity creates/makes is because of its own supposed self-given/taught/earned/learned abilities. I think we’re all very stupid to be quite honest. I refuse to believe that the complexities of this world all derived from bits and pieces of organisms floating out in space. And even if i concede the possibility of anything being as such, i believe above all else in the unmovable mover.
God Exists and i love God.
Idk. this is such a nebulous topic someone ask me something specific. I feel like when it comes to my relationship with God, i can only begin by saying that “God is Love.” And without love, we’d be nothing.
Oh. And if you believe that i’m trying to “convert” anyone by simply expressing my views on the matter, then please unfollow my blog because you’re simply too much of an idiot to continue. I feel like that I, as a person, am generally very accepting of the varying kinds of people i encounter, meet, and have the pleasure of interacting with on a day to day basis. With that said, i would hope that in by my desire to talk, rant, or whatever about my God no one would reduce me to the kind of stereotype i originally criticize in this post. :)
When I was maybe 1-2 my mom took us to the mall to get our ears pierced. I remember crying like none other
When I was in high school I told my mom I wanted to get double piercings, so she took a needle, set it on fire, rinsed it with listerine and pierced my ears. She said malls were dirty nowadays.
When I was a freshman in college (thanks kat :]) I got my lip pierced. I came home and while eating a bowl of rice in a dark kitchen, my mom came over, and asked why i was eating in the dark. She turned on the light. So i put the bowl closer to my mouth. My sister sat totally giving everything away. Awkward. So i pulled the bowl down, my mom asks “What’s that on your lip?” I replied, “a piercing.” She goes on for about five minutes saying things like “Oh my gosh! Grace! What will they say at church, etc etc” So I said “Whatever. They shouldn’t be judging me anyway- and why is this necessarily bad? I think it looks pretty. there are cultures that pierce almost all their body parts because people find it pretty, etc etc.” Then she stopped. A month later when we went to visit dad in Cali, he stopped. Looked at me and asked “Did it hurt?” I answered “a little bit” (that part was a total LIE i teared up and wanted to punch myself to distract my pain of the actual pierce) my mom says “no more. okay?” to which i replied ‘okay. :)’
I got my belly pierced afterwards. i swear my stomach is so fat it has it’s own gravitational pull. the piercing got pushed around by my rolls and didn’t heal very well. so i took it out. a year later i tried again. double pierced it this time. the guy pierced it unevenly -_- so i took them out again. a year after than Lynn and i went to get it pierced one more time. my fat swallowed it and so i took it out.
all in all i’ve been pierced 9 times. now i only sport earrings when i feel like i want to look prettier than usual. :)
Thanks Karen :) …not that you’ve given me permission yet.

Don't worry -there's still some good in the world :)
Yes there’s a lot of egocentric, selfish, and (For the most part) downright awful people in the world. But for every one of those, there’s at least one person who is doing a small act of kindness to better the world - to try and mirror that of Christ. Whether it’s something as small as picking up a piece of litter that a stranger carelessly threw to the ground, or if it’s using their birthday to raise money for a charitable cause — if you’re feeling in the giving mood, feel free to help out one of my friends with her campaign (click the LINK!). Anyway, moving on, so yes, have heart and hope. In the midst of all the people getting road rage in traffic to/from malls, and all the “I wants” and “Please may I”s, there is a bit of good in all of it. The kind of good that Jesus represents in this world of sin.
And if you’re the kind of person that needs to constantly be doing something, Lan and I are still working on knitting blankets for our Knitting Ministry and could use some help. IF you like to knit or just want to get involved, get at one of us. All our knitted blankets will be going to the Women’s Shelter in Dallas this Winter. :)

Ate! :) we definitely should hangout a lot more! I hardly ever see you, and when we do, we don't get to talk :( I don't know what your schedule is like, but please let's plan something soon! :) Family dinner or something :)
yes ma’am! i work MWF but get off after 5pm and i have class/work TTh but get off by 5 then also. So basically anytime after 5 :) i’ll pick up you and Noel and Glenn and we can get good food. i get done with midterms by Tuesday next week - let me know when you’re free! the boys will just have to work around our schedule :)
thank you for making me feel beautiful - even if it was only for a few seconds. And although I may kick myself later for not taking up that coffee date with you, I want you to know you have restored a bit of hope in me. That there IS some redeeming quality in me that even a stranger can see. Despite what seems to be the light at the end of the tunnel, I’m just not ready yet. I’m still collecting myself in the dark - the important pieces that feel for love and am attempting to try and put them back together. Maybe if I find them all and if you’re still there, you can help me. :)
When will this long summer end? I want my Autumn. :(
