Daisy Love just passed.
Pray for Daisy
“ Oh friends, I don’t know what to say… Updating has seemed a task daunting and impossible as our girl lay in her bed at Cottage intermittently crying out in pain, sleeping, and dreamily remarking about the shadows of the birds on the wall. January 13th marked one month in the hospital. She received two weeks of chemo within a couple of days of going in with abdominal pain and finding two...
Life is pain. It’s part of the human experience, and if you scratch the surface...– Kate Merrick
Last RSF service today until winter. Can’t believe how heartbroken I feel- must be separation anxiety. Aughhhh. I can do this. When I first started attending Reality services, I was so focused on me: my spirituality, my walk with God, my growth in Christ. For the first time this summer, I really experienced a sense of community. I’ve always found community in my fellowship- friends,...
A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be...– Dickens
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy- My heart breaks
Aren’t people suppose to come in and out of your life for a purpose? Some relationships are like cancers. At first, you’re completely unaware of the disease even taking hold of you. So it festers and spreads and wedges itself deep into your core. And by the time you realize its presence, it’s far too late. Already a part of you. Sharing cells and blood vessels and whatever...
I need to talk to a stranger.
I think God and I are fighting. I hope it ends soon. The silence is killing me. Although it may be entirely my fault. I think I’m mad at God. Going to Pepperdine, as much of a blessing as it is, gives me an inferiority complex. I remember this sermon Britt Mericks gave a couple months ago on the idea of the “good” and the “bad” Christian. He had said that because...
My last days in Firenze. Extremely bittersweet. Though I cannot wait to be back in SF, Malibu; with Miguel, my family, my friends, my dog; I’m going to miss Leonardo’s lectures. Struggling with Italian. Mangiare la cena. the cobblestones. the villa, the people. living out of a suitcase. the art, the history. my little Italian brother Pietro. Medici’s gelato. Cafe Liberta....
i love technology. not only does it make basic everyday tasks and needs a convenience, it’s also simplify human relationships. you know how they say you can’t erase your past, and that you have to grow, learn, and deal with it? bullshit. I’ve just deleted quite a few ‘friends’, and intend on removing that part of my past from both my cyber and physical world. ...
Italy so far.. Piazzle del Michelangelo, Siena, Ponte Vecchio, Firenze, and Pisa.. This month, Venice Rome Sicily Pompei PARIS!! then Greece :). what is my life? sheer awesomeness.
“And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.” Romans 5:5 I think this has definitely been one of my most trying summers. my household had become a spiritual battlefield for me- I constantly felt like my faith, my sanity, my composure was being tested time and time again. ...
Dear God, I really don’t get what I’m suppose to do. I think I’ll settle on nothing. It’d be great if You’d just step in.
Somebody give me something strong so I could release ya; double shot of amnesia-...
I love him.

Hey is it okay if I...
Fantastic Sunday. You know, God never ceases to amaze me. It’s astounding how every week He hits me with a dead-on sermon (you know, when the pastor seems to be speaking directly TO you, or ABOUT you?), and leaves me with a new lesson. Pastor Dave had recently said something about the dangers of us “young Christians with minds and horizons too big”- I had been...
I want to be a psychologist, therapist, lawyer- I want to be thin, trendy, beautiful- I want to be charming, stunning, and unique- I want to be a lover, friend, and sister- I want to be of this world. Now, I want to be a light. I want to be a light upon this world, emulating His love, His grace, His power; I want you to see me as nothing more than a vessel. Let me put on Christ. Therefore, ...
meeting people for the first time.

Dear God, You are the perfect Teacher and Father (while I’m forever the stubborn student and prodigal daughter). You understand the type of love I need. Thank you for all the wake up calls and slaps in the face. In the famous words of Roooooo, “You’re amazing, you’re amazing!” Every slap is like comfirmation of Your presence in my life. Thanks for letting me know...
this entire year has been about change- now don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a hell of a time (in the good sense) with my first year of college, but i’m so tired of adjusting, changing, adapting, transitioning- some things were never meant to change. I’m tired of getting over it. I’m tired of readjusting. I’m tired of sugarcoating. I’m tired of losing,...
Dear Pepperdine.. I know our time together has been short, but nonetheless I’ve fallen madly, madly in love with you. Please don’t leave me! The very idea of spending an entire summer without you, depresses me. We don’t need this break! Our relationship has been completely healthy and happy. Love, Angel PS: Will you please reconsider? I’ll change, I promise.
seriously, people wear me out sometimes.
friendships gets funny when you take a second look- I feel like I’m a developing pyro. Let the bridges burn, burn, burn.
So… that actor that played the “real” father from Mamma Mia? and also starred in the Metador and played James Bond in some movie? Pierce Brosnan? yeah, I ran into him on my way to class today. And a couple of weeks ago, Condoleezza Rice? Was also on campus. Oh, Pepperdine. You spoil me.
Dear Life, Time to quit plummeting. Time to plateau.
you know life is amazing when it’s 11:11, and you can’t think of a single thing to wish for :].
first clubbing experience last night in Hollywood. still not quite sure how I feel about it, lol. the music was good. club was decent. people were… well, a trip, haha. some truly creepy guys out there.
REALLY. really. REALLY? Who do you think you are? Seriously, WHO do you think you ARE? How dare you? Better question, do you know who I AM? Do you KNOW who I am? sdfghjnmgvfdjhn.

Meg Whitman or Jerry Brown. Oh, fellow Californians. We’re quite doomed.
Tumblr or homework? I’ve been avoiding tumblr for weeks- I think I’ve become way too self conscious of my writing. And I keep waiting for inspiration to hit and swallow and engulf and overwhelm me to the point where words and sentences will just piece themselves together and just flow- fluently, eloquently, and effortlessly. And that just doesn’t seem to happen anymore. ...
