LeAnn Rimes - "Satisfied"
I just can't seem to care anymore. I've been late to class two days in a row.
I'm never late. Not if I can avoid it. I'm always the one ten minutes early.
Something needs to give, but I feel like I'm the only thing that ever does.
So, I'm just stuck here. Completely unsatisfied.
First things first. This weekend, Allie and I realized it's been a full year since this happened:
Last night, I was skyping with Allie, and she showed me some pictures of one of our photoshoots that I'd never seen before. She sent them over to me and I dove right into editing. So, I figured why not share them with y'all?
This shoot was just days after we finished high school and we were on the brink of moving to college. Crazy stuff!
I love to sing.
Like, I really love to sing.
I sing to itunes. I sing in the car. If I know the song, I'm singing.
So, this is how I got my start.
I was five years old the first time I auditioned for the Children's Choir at church. Joining the choir was voluntary and open to anyone, but getting a solo was something you had to audition for.
Needless to say, I choked. The guy who was running the choir was intimidating. Kevin Keil (love that man). And even though I did horribly while auditioning, that year I got hooked on performing.
I pretty much did the children's choir ever year after that until Kevin left. The year he left, I graduated to the adult choir.
While I was a choir member, I performed in the same play twice (my name is in a published play guys!), went to Oklahoma City to perform said play, and performed with the adult choir several times.
Junior year, there I was, ready to answer the call when there were no directors for the children's choir and I ended up co-directing.
Being in the children's choir pretty much set me on the path to do theater and music. For a while, my plan was to go to UNT and major in music (if you read my post Tuesday, you know how well that plan worked!). I spent a good part of my high school years on the stage, both at school and doing community theater.
Obviously, I no longer do theater, though I'd love to get back into it, but I still sing. I went home this past weekend and sang with the choir at church.
Over Christmas break, my friend from the children's choir and I went to go visit Kevin Keil and had to snap a picture.
I've said it several times, but I'm a mass communications major. What does that mean? Well, it means a lot of things. My concentration is Public Relations and Advertising. Last month, I spent a week at an ad agency working with a bunch of creative people, and I absolutely loved it.
My dad was the one who originally suggested public relations, way back in ninth grade (We're always thinking ahead of the curve in my family). It was back when my biggest passion in life was theater. He said it would be a good job for me, writing and speaking publicly.
I brushed it off as a crazy idea.
And look now, four years later, here I am. Becoming a public relations gal.
I'm currently in three classes for my major. I've got a class specifically for public relations concentrations and it's pretty awesome.
I'm so excited for what my major is going to bring me!
Yesterday, I was paroozing through Pinterest looking at amazing office ideas. I love looking at offices of bloggers, just to see how they did it. I love the idea of a home office!
But for now, all I have is my little desk in my dorm room. This is what I have to work with.
|Ash Wednesday (yesterday)|
For most of my life, I was in Sunday school. At my church, you start when you're four and you don't stop until the end of your sophomore year.
1. The abandoned warehouse across from Death Row. Inmates who were good used to work there, but now, it's only there because it's home to a colony of bats.
2.The Greyhound Bus station. Went in there once. Talk about a major culture shock.
3. Watch tower on Death Row. That was the only guy who didn't come out of his office to watch me walk down the street.
4. The movie poster for Laura.
5. Hair salon that I went to last week!
6. Walker County Courthouse.
One of the things I never talk about on the blog is my religion. It's a major concept of my life, so I feel like now would be the time to talk about it.
So, over the next few weeks, I'll be talking about my journey of faith, how my faith kind of shaped my life and my outlook on life.
This series, Catholic to the Core, isn't an attempt to try and convert anyone, that's your own decision, but, it is a huge part of my life, therefore, it's worth sharing on my blog.
I've been blogging for almost three years now(next month is the anniversary!). Besides this past summer when I had nothing else to do, I've never been truly serious about blogging. And I've always wanted to be.
So, with the mindset of no time like the present, I bought a planner when I went to Target yesterday.
And then I planned a post for every week day for the next two months. I color coded it and everything(flair pens are the best!).
That's this month. March pretty much looks the same. I'm excited and scared at the same time. Many nights, I don't have the energy to write a full thought-out post, so this will be a challenge to see if I can get every single one of those posts up. I better!
Besides that, I'm working on some photography stuff that I can't wait to share with y'all (but you'll have to wait until next month!), and I'm working on a brand new design. I haven't sat down to actually design it on the computer yet, but if I can get the design to look anything like the one I've got in my head, it'll be epic. And it'll be here for a long time.
Something has completely resparked my desire to be the best blogger I can be.
And I hope you'll be along for the journey.
Blogging is all about the community right? You read people's blogs, and other's read yours. I'm really bad about constantly checking up on blogs, but I realized, there are four blogs that I check on a regular (read daily) basis, so I thought I would share my favorite blogs so you could read them too.
