Do Hard Stuff

After discovering the Modesty Survey (fascinating!) through a random blog I found after reading Pam's review on "Praying for Your Future Husband," an internet jaunt landed me on this excellent blog post written by a 17-year-old in 2006 about success and failure as perceived through the eyes of a child, versus the eyes of a teen. Imagine your reaction if a four-year-old told you, "I'm just not a toilet person." Now imagine, or remember, your reaction when a teen or adult says "I'm just not a math person," or "I'm just not a people person."

How much are we letting our limitations define us?  I could go off on this, but I need to go cook dinner. Lunch was a turnip. And a very good turnip it was.
I need rest.
Go read "My First Shower Nearly Killed Me."

Thanksgiving 2011 , a set on Flickr.
Yes, it is almost Christmas. But now I am out of school I can do fun things like make photo galleries. I am using Flickr's Blogger share feature. We'll see how it looks.

Why not make a night of it?

Ever been so exhausted you can't sleep? Such is the unfortunate state I find myself in, now at 5am, the day after I finished my final project for class. Bad news is, work at 9am. Good news is, NO MORE SCHOOL FOR A MONTH! Hooray!

I have utilized this bout of sleepnessness to make a few improvements to the blog. Notice the new pages at top. Also, I am trying to increase the readability of the text - darkened some colors. Let me know if it's still hard to read.

I wanted to show you my final project for graduate school. After 36 hours of labor on the presentation alone (the project itself totaled far more) I am justifiably proud. Enjoy!

All this work on the Converse website has made me realize how my blog is kind of stuck in the mid-00's and it was never very reader-centric. In an attempt to modernize, I will be incorporating more interactivity, like this Prezi, a music player, and Flickr slideshows. Who knows, now that I have a webcam I might start vlogging! I also want to add content which will hopefully be useful to you, starting with Scripture Songs and Teen Songwriters, which can be found above.
