On this day of your life, Colleen, we believe God wants you to know … that today you have a cause for celebration.
Today, you should celebrate what an unbelievable life you have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make you stronger. Just as a gem cannot be polished without friction, nor can a life be perfected without trials. Take a time to acknowledge your life and to praise yourself.
I can honestly say that I’m happy. Maybe the happiest I’ve been..ever.
See, there’s this guy and well…he’s changed my life so dramatically in such a short period of time. For the better. He came into my life at one of my lowest points, and brought me back up again — higher than I ever was before. I feel like a dork right now, cause this awkward smile keeps coming back on my face like :T …to :S ..to :) ..to :D :D :D. And it keeps repeating it self, maybe not in that order, but I just can’t stop smiling.
I feel like he came into my life at the perfect time, and that everything that has happened with us, well…is His work. That itself is something that amazes me — he’s brought me closer to my faith. They say you have to see to believe, and trust me..I’m seeing the little, everyday things He does for me. It’s easier than ever to believe more in Him, and its an understatement to say that I’m thankful, everyday.
Not only has he brought me closer to my faith, but he’s brought me closer to my family. My mom especially. My mom and I have always fought, but ever since this new relationship with my boyfriend, I don’t know how it played out to be this way, but somehow it created a closer bond with my own mother. I can tell her almost everything about him, and I love that. I’m so much closer to my aunts and uncles now as well, especially because they only have sons. I’m like the universal daughter, and just like with my mom, I’ve been able to talk to them, and I see them as second moms now, more than before atleast.
And finally, he’s brought me closer..to myself. I know that sounds wierd, but thats how I feel. I feel like I have more of a sense of who I am, and its insane. I feel like I’ve gotten more outgoing, more comfortable with myself, more confident, and I’m getting closer and closer to a peace of mind whereas I will finally be able to let go of what other people think of me, and live for myself. At the same time that I’ve been getting closer to someone, I’m also learning what it is to be independent. I know I won’t depend on anyone to make me happy, but it doesn’t hurt to have someone right there with me, who can make that much happier.
I’m in love. I’m sorry if you’re sick of me saying this same thing over again, but this is kinda just a note to myself. Something to look back on and say, “Wow,” you know? I can’t stress enough how much I’ve gained such an appreciation for God, life, myself, my family..but especially.. my boyfriend.
I could honestly tell him for hours how much he means to me, and I love retelling the same stories over and over again about us, and what we thought of each other, first impressions, and recaps on memories and little bits and pieces of any moment we’ve spent together. I don’t know why, but it seems like we’d never get tired of those stories—atleast I don’t.
..And I’m rambling, but it’s just cause I have so much on my mind right now. :) So many thoughts are circulating through my head, and they’re going so fast its crazy. :D
I’ve fallen in love with someone for the exact reasons that I want to fall in love with someone for, if that makes any sense at all.
So this one, it first establishes that I need to get in touch with my subconscious. Whatever, haha. And then with the military style, this dream may reflect my actual life? HAHAHA, and then with the bunk beds: “Alternatively, it may refer to diverging and conflicting views of sexuality. You may have difficulties expressing your needs and desires." And, that a rival may —WHOA I JUST HAD DEJA VU, idk of what though..— Anyways.. A rival may do me wrong? Do I have rivals?! And that I’m trying to be someone that I’m just.. not? And that I need to stand up for myself, and stop letting others push me around? I don’t think I’m letting people push me around..And the fact that I have a “disability” in the dream, means low self-esteem? But I’m fine by the end of the dream.. does that mean I had low self esteem..but now I don’t? —like the escape from injury, maybe something good will happen? I’m limping right before that, showing that I feel a relationship is one-sided..or that I’m giving more than I get back. And finally, my dream ends in dance again. My life is balanced. Dancing also represents frivolity, happiness, gracefulness, sensuality and sexual desires.

THIS TIME, I was in this underground dance thing, like stomp the yard status. But at the same time, it was like this weird military-style bootcamp, and in this one room, were all these cramped bunks. It was dark, and there was only one window.. but it looked like it was a cloudy 5AM all the time. I remember fronting that I needed a wheelchair, or crutches. And everyone believed me, so I’d get rolled around everywhere, taken everywhere, and even built up some arm strength, pulling myself into bed and rolling the wheels. And I remember being all 007 status, and finally getting outside into open-air, and it was like I was escaping from somewhere? And I guess I got out of the wheelchair, and uh..i dont remember what happened here, but I remember walking around in a white stadium type thing. And then I came back to the bunks, without the wheelchair, and was just kinda limping, so everyone assumed I was okay, and I could dance again?
SO WEIRD! I’m so confused.
OH! And, these caught my eye-
"God has a purpose behind every problem"
Don’t be bewildered or surprised when you go through the fiery trials ahead, for this is no strange, unusual thing that is going to happen to you. — 1 Peter 4:12
Every problem is a character-building opportunity, and the more difficult it is, the greater potential for building spiritual muscle and moral fiber.
We know that these troubles produce patience. And patience produces character. — Romans 5:3-4
Under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. — James 1:3
so basically.. it started off as a pool party..with a lot of people. i was sitting next to my friend kiana, and my boyfriend teejay, was on the other side of her. i guess i kissed her on the cheek, and teejay was like WTH! But then he just shrugged it off. so i guess my friend fell in the pool, and I laughed at her, but then eventually she pushed me in. so I went into the house and walked in this room with like, two doors. like one right after the other.. naked? and there were presents..and someone got a victoria’s secret present, and since ALL my clothes were wet, i just took the panties out of that bag.. ODD, i know. they were new! but anyways, teejay was in that room, and he was just finding me clothes to wear. somehow i ended up in regular clothes, like as if they were mine.
THEN, here’s the trippy part. So I don’t exactly remember what order this happened in.. but I know I went into a closet and there was this scary little boy, like those horror movie kids, and it was creepy. But then another time, I went into this other room, and was looking through a dresser..and in the bottom drawer, was another boy, frail, lanky, and super white, with black hair, and I remember repeatedly stabbing him with a flimsy sword type thing.. and i remember something else happened with..i wanna say, an oversized reptile dragon type thing? but these same 3 things happened OVER and OVER again, and for some reason I kept going back to these places and doing the same thing over again.
Then somehow, I ended up in a costume for PASACAT, Senoritas or Chotis to be exact. And I was walking out of the house’s front door and my boyfriend was getting in a car with my cousins from hawaii.. and i was like, where are you going? and he mouthed back, “I have to cook for them”. SO RANDOM. and then some of the younger girls from pasacat —julia and nikki— were practicing senoritas or chotis or something, and kuya raymond insisted on teaching me tinikling in that dress.
And I don’t remember what happened after that, and I woke up.
Because I always imagined that it was basically kissing someone who sucked out your breath, or most of it. Or making it so hard for you to breathe, by kissing someone with a blocked nose. Or just not allowing them to breathe when you kissed them. You know, that whoooole time, I was wrong. What I thought is a possibility of taking away ones breath, but the saying means nothing along those lines. I’ve found that taking away one’s breath, is to just be so divine, so amazing, all they concentrate on is you, and themselves, well, they forget to breathe. Breathing is meant to be an automatic thing. But when someone, or something, means so much to you, and they just seem so much more amazing than your own life, that’s when they can take away your breath. Whether it be with their walking into a room, a kiss, contact of your skin. I’ve had shown to me how my own breath can be “taken away”. First I got a short pain of butterflies, just before our lips touched, and then I just stopped breathing. You guys probably really don’t care. You don’t have to read it. I just wanted to share my opinion. But after kissing for the first few seconds, this being our first kiss, his lips hovered slightly away from mine, our bottom lips touching a few times. At this point I realised I was actually struggling to breathe. To help with the absence of my previous breath, the way he held me, the way he touched his nose to mine. I never in my life have felt more beautiful. I couldn’t inhale another breath at this point. When he turned away, onto his back next to me, I went into this strange mood, as though I was on some kind of drugs. I couldn’t talk properly, and I felt as though I was flying. During the second or third kiss, the same thing was happening. Although I seemed to have managed to breathe, they were short, uneven breaths. Almost like I was weeping, but I wasn’t. When his lips were sitting just a distance away from mine, he asked what was wrong, and stated that I seemed upset. I just shook my head, still in the drug-like stance, and just said “No, no, no… No, you’re amazing,” as I put my arm over his body, and put my face in his shoulder. Every time he kissed me, the same thing happened. I felt like I couldn’t move. Now one day, if someone ever asks me what it’s like to have your breath taken away from you, I’ll tell them exactly what it’s like. I’ll tell them it makes you feel like you’re flying, like you don’t need anything, or anyone else but what took your breath away in the first place.
i took the SAT today, i think i did pretty well. met some new people and people i havent seen in a LONG time, hi spencer! hi stephani! had some laughs with cecily today, LMAO “what?” and film time with kalena and matt. “Kalena.. okay okay, closer.. closer…” “MATT, YOU’RE NOT SPARKLY!” “This smells good..” “oh no.. your car’s gonna blow up -___- “
and a dose of the PDL-
Let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of you mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God—what is good and is pleasing to him and perfect. —Romans 12:2
Jul. 23 - Aug 22 — With a general opportunity period running today, it would be a good time to travel or make plans to travel, Leo. Any type of journey is favorable, but travel for business purposes would be especially profitable today. The signs are of good connections and generally smooth going, but if you are not traveling, you can expect to spend some time working on long-range plans, and your connection with a partner, or potential partner, is particularly strong today. If you are single, you need to get rid of anything in your life that no longer serves a purpose.
Connection with a partner..plans for traveling..
Your Love Horoscope—
Your fiery side is going to be very pleasantly appeased today, Leo, as romance is favored for you in many new ways. Whether you are single or attached, romance blooms in many ways, and for you today it is likely to blossom in a very primal, lusty manner. Physical needs should be allowed to take the forefront, and it is okay to just focus on you for a little while today. The more spiritual aspects of love will have their moments, but today a wild, uninhibited frolic is in order. You know just who you want to enjoy this with, so make sure their schedule is clear and have fun today!
WELL THEN.. ;) HAHA! AND THERE WAS A SPIRITUAL ASPECT OF LOVE MOMENT TOO! “Do you love me?” “Yes.” “Why?”
I am supposed to pick 12 women (who have touched my life) and whom I think might participate. I think that if this group of women were ever to be in a room together, there is nothing that would be impossible. I hope I chose the right twelve. May my hugs, love, gestures, and communications remind you how special you are. Please send this back to me. Remember to make a wish before you read the quotation. That’s all you have to do. There is nothing attached. Just send this to twelve women and let me know what happens on the fourth day. Try not to break this, please. Did you make a wish yet? If you don’t make a wish, it won’t come true… This is your last chance to make a wish!
Quotation: “May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.” Now, send this to 12 women (or more) (you can copy & paste) within the next 5 minutes. In addition, remember to send this back to me. I count as one. You’ll see why.
Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody. —Romans 12:18
If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care—then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. —Philippians 2:1-2
havent gotten one of these in awhile!
colleen;: would you rather have a tough boyfriend or a sensitive one?
I’d rather have a “my” boyfriend. ;) But regarding your question..well, I want someone who can be tough for me, I’d rather not date someone I can beat up myself. But he has to be sensitive and lovey,and cute with me. :)
Anyway it, tell me what u think.
I thought love was just a mirage of the mind,
it's an illusion, it's fake, impossible to find.
But the day I met you, I began to see,
that love is real, and exists in me.
say for instance we get to spend the rest of our lives together, hypothetically speaking of course, is there any chores or anything that you absolutely hate doing? what would you want your husband to take care of?
hmm, HYPOTHETICALLY speaking.. :)
i hate laundry. if we’re getting married, you should know that. hahah! and i dont like washing dishes, but i’ll do it, but it’d be nice if my husband did it some of the time. and regarding what i would want my husband to take care of…
me. :) and our kids. :) and the house. haha. and HIMSELF!
If you had a car, what color would it be? and why?
Thats probably the most random thing I’ve gotten so far. Hmm, idk. I like simple, so black or silver. But I wouldn’t mind like a burgundy-like dark red type color… car. :) But it would have to look decent. Okay I’m going to get off on a tangent, so black or silver would probably be my first choice.
So one day there was this guy and he had this friend named Colleen. They were pretty tight friends and he was really down for her. Not in a liking way but just a nice friend to have. It has been like this for a long time. He liked to take care of her and be her friend and listen to her and see her every day at school. She has a new boyfriend. Is it wrong to be jealous of him? He's a lucky guy. I hope he takes care of her and wont hurt her. She deserves the best and she is a pretty tough cookie if you ask me. You can lose her at any second bro, so be sure to make every one of those seconds count with her. She's a catch. A good one.
O_O! WHOA MAN, huge confession. I’m not really sure who this could be, cause the person that I would even slightly think wouldn’t do this type of thing, I think?
Nothing’s gonna stop me but divine intervention, I’m yours. I can’t stand to fly, I’m not that naive, I’m just out to find the better part of me. I’m more than a bird, I’m more than a plane. Finally find, you and I .. collide. :)
Not all of this song is relevant, in fact, most of it isn’t, but it is pleasant to listen to right? distressed hopeless romantics, hopeless romantics.
“Woke up early this morning, make my coffee like I always do. Then it hit me from nowhere; everything I feel about me and you. I guess that I’m just falling deeper into something that I never knew, but the way that I’m feeling makes me realize that it can’t be wrong. Your love’s like a summer rain, washing all my doubts away.”—8th World Wonder - Kimberley Locke
when you aren’t afraid to speak your mind. they say that the healthiest relationships include arguements, because if they didn’t, neither of you are comfortable enough to point out flaws or dislikings. you care enough to bring those matters to their attention, and when it comes down to it, its one of the most beautiful concepts to be able to vent, release some steam, and then come to remind each other exactly why you’re in love with them.
from PDL Day 16: Love means living the way God commanded us to live. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is this: Live a life of love. - 2 John 1:6
from PDL Day 18: Two are better than one, because together they can work effectively. If one of them falls down, the other can help him up… Two people can resist an attack that would defeat one person alone. - Ecclesiastes 4:9
it feels nice to always fall in love over and over again with the same person. especially when you fall in love for the unique, different, similar, or the same reasons, alike. every time.
Let love be your greatest aim. - 1 Corinthians 14:1
What are the minimum GPA and SAT/ACT scores? There is no minimum G.P.A. or SAT/ACT scores. The average G.P.A for enrolled freshmen (2009-2010) was 3.9. The average SAT was 1240 (based on Critical Reading and Math scores) and the average ACT was 28. While a solid G.P.A. and good SAT/ACT scores are important for admission, we also look for evidence of students who are well-rounded and enjoy being part of their communities.
ad;oijaoidjf;alksdjf AVG SAT SCORE: 1240! YES! This made my day. GAH! THATS BELOW AVG! w45ht9e5h4tdfgkljdfklgj :D :D :D :D :D :D
