Fear is where the greatest opportunities are.What are you afraid of?Fear is where the greatest opportunities are.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Failure? Rejection? Boredom? Not being good enough for something or someone?
I'm starting to notice in my own life that fear is usually a good indicator of where I have the greatest opportunity.
I'm not talking about fear of running into freeway traffic. That's a healthy respect for the laws of physics.
I'm talking about those things that if you are still long enough to listen to your own heart, you hear it telling you what you really hope for.
And usually there is a voice right behind it telling you why you cant have it, and all of the reasons why.
This past year, I have made an effort to start listening to the first voice, and and not to the second.
As I have been practicing this, I have started to notice something that I missed for years...
That fear voice is actually covering up the simple fact that I just have to choose. And then choose again. And again.
Every day wake up, live in gratitude, love the people around you, and know that you CAN. Really know tha

Chardon School Shooting :(Today was, by far, the scariest day of my life. I woke up with that feeling...that one that was telling me it was going to be a bad day. I should have leaned on that feeling. All I can say right now is I am thankful the students that made it alive are alive. The injured that are still breathing, their life has been changed. I will keep them in my thoughts and in my prayers.Chardon School Shooting :(3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is my story for today...maybe I shouldn't call it a story, because it isn't.
I was sitting in the high school cafeteria -like I always do- waiting for the Auburn Career Center bus to pick my friends and I up for school. Everything was completely normal.
From the hallway, I heard a loud crack. It sounded like a balloon popping, or someone squeezing a bag of chips till it explodes. I turned to my right, and saw nothing. I heard three more loud cracks, this time they were close together. When I turned to my right again, a student, who I recognized, was standing with a gun. As he pulled the trigger, I saw fire burs

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
FOUR. When you say, 'I love you,' mean it.
FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.
EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.

I said she looks a little coyote...
erm, I researched dog/coyote hybrids and she has the characteristics of one. Her behavior is still uncertain since it takes dogs a while to become acclimated to their new homes, but physically and behaviorally thus far, she is coydog.
When we take her to the vet next, I will see if there is anyway we can have her tested.
TIL that over 30 breeds of dog can have purple spots on their tongues, so she might not be lab or chow at all.
but, onto the important part:
We completed the naming ceremony.
Her official name is Kaia (pronounced like Kaya).
we also decided she looks like a little coyote haha
So I told you about the little Aussie mix, right? yeah. I guess it just wasn't meant to be. You see, we went to the humane society bright and early (at their opening time) and the lady who was helping us the day before comes out and says "hey, i saw you standing here and I wanted to let you know they

First off, I am surprised at how quickly third quarter passed. I think my grades are acceptable Senior year is coming so fast. EEEEH! I filled out all the scheduling papers and then was like...lolwut? Senior year? Mmmhm!
And about Rock Your Prom...as much as I feel terrible for winning, I am excited. We probably wouldn't have even been nominated if we didn't have such a tragedy happen. I guess all we can do is just enjoy it. It's so nice and all, I just think there are other schools that could use it.

Mostly sit in the background and just rest and silently absorb the aura...? of the place. Because I am never relaxed at home. I prefer not-home chaos than home.)

I hate money so much. For my dad's birthday and Christmas I wanted to get him the best gift ever since I've never been able to give him a gift that my mom didn't buy lol SO! I came up with this idea. He and I love hockey and would always watch it together. Well for Christmas I'll be back home in VA and it just so happens his FAVORITE hockey team NY Rangers VS. my favorite hockey team Capitals only 3 hours away from where we live!!! AH! It would be amazing to go with him! However tickets cost about $254 per person.....
I'd have to buy the tickets NOW to get good seats.
*sigh* I have the money but I should NOT spend it since I need it for college books. My mom was willing to pay for 1 ticket but she still thinks it's not a good idea for me to buy the ticket. THIS IS A LIFT TIME CHANCE!
AHHHH! Not buying the ticket and not being able to go with my father just makes me feel like shit. Idk why. I feel like we NEED to go. Like I have this feeling it's my last chance to spend w
