Just Because

1. I write in 3 different journals every day; each has it’s own purpose.
2. I can never grow my nails out long because I know one of them will break eventually, causing me to cut them altogether to keep them even.
3. I’ve never gotten a manicure or pedicure.
4. I miss playing football with the sisters.
5. I enjoy sleeping to the sound of the rain pouring on the roof.
6. I work so much better under pressure.
7. I’m almost never at home on the weekends because there’s always usually something going on in my life.
8. I don’t party. If I do it’s a family party with loads of food and kids running around.
9. Eating then passing out afterwards from it is what I prefer. Oh, itis.
10. I also don’t drink and never have I once tried/wanted to.
11. I’d rather do bigger, better, and more important things anyway, imo.
12. I have a lot of friends that don’t fully understand what I do.
13. I wish the spring weather would stop teasing us and stay already.
14. I have allergies now. Aghhh.
15. My man name (according to Gino) is Gus.
16. He believes I’m some really fat guy stuck in an average sized body of a girl. No lie.
17. Yeah, I eat a lot.
18. I’m trying to work out every now and then just so that his belief won’t become a reality.
19. I’m so inconsistent when it comes to working out. That needs to be fixed.
20. Anastasia, my MacBook, is almost a year old. She’s still as good as new.
21. There are 4 weeks left of my first year of college. This semester went by very quickly.
22. I’m still trying to get straight A’s although it’s unlikely to happen. Kidding. It’s possible.
23. Interior Design is a lot more difficult than most people think.
24. I feel so blessed to have a family who supports me with what I’m doing. My mom tells me every now and then that she’s going to be my first client.
25. Next semester is going to drown me. But hey, I’ll manage because God will engulf me with His goodness making everything better.
26. Two studio classes (each 2 ½ hrs long) back to back next semester –> :O
27. Happy belated 25th birthday, Sean. I’m forever missing you.
28. Happy belated to Heath Ledger as well. Your charm always gets me in TTIHAY. I miss you.
29. I have a bad, bad habit of biting the dead skin off my lips.
30. I used to be very flexible when I still danced back in the day. I suck now.
31. I’m also way out of shape still. I get so tired doing the littlest things like walking up the hills at my school. Horrible!!
32. I can’t go to sleep without saying goodnight and I love you to my mom first.
33. I also can’t do work ahead of time. I’ve tried and tried plenty of times. I work so much better under pressure…even if it does kill me sometimes – err, most times.
34. Ryan says I sound like I’m dying when I sneeze. I sneeze pretty loud. Not cute and quiet like some girls…LOUD.
35. I burp at my best when drinking Sprite and only Sprite (preferably in an ice cold can). Jamie can attest to that.
36. I can be such a guy sometimes. You can stop liking me now.
37. I love flowers – all kinds. I have a select few that I’d rather receive though.
38. The upcoming weeks and months are going to be great.
39. The emptiness you feel in your heart is the place where God desires to be in. Simply let Him in and He’ll fill you in ways where you’ll never feel empty ever again.
40. He always prevails.
