to save us all from satan's power

 "Christmas is a time for remembering the Son of God and renewing our determination to take upon us His name. It is a time to reassess our lives and examine our thoughts, feelings, and actions.  Let this be a time of remembrance, of gratitude, and a time of forgiveness. Let it be a time to ponder the Atonement of Jesus Christ and its meaning for each of us personally.  Let it especially be a time of renewal and recommitment to live by the word of God and to obey His commandments."

-President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

all the pretty girls

Today my aunt told me that when her little girls play house, they take turns being "Mayson".

 It was the cutest thing ever.

close my eyes and leap

I did it. I got the pink slip from the attendance office, I got my teacher's to sign it, I put Eric in charge of the assembly, I promised Sutherland that all templates will be done, I did it.

I'm actually going to do something for once in my life. 

California, here I come.

music that saves you when you're not so sure you'll survive

Some days you replay a song over and over again, trying to believe in the words, trying to convince yourself that it will be okay,  fighting the voice in the back of your head yelling at you that you should just quit, while you pray to God that you can make it through another day.

"I swim for brighter days despite the absence of sun"

just keep your head above

You haven't come this far to fall off the earth.

Oh man.

Actually scratch that.

Oh men.

7 of them .

woke up, wished that i was dead

It's a rude awakening when you realize you are one person and you are trying to accomplish what normally five different people would do. 

with things unreal

 I want to feel the rush of a big city. The glow of the lights, the people, the smells, the sounds: I want it.

I want to hear the ocean. Feel the sand in my toes, the sun on my face. The waves crashing into my body, taking me away.

I desire the peace of the mountains. The look of fresh snow from the window, cuddled by a fireplace, reading a book.

I wish for long drives in the trees. I want to sit in the canoe, fresh water, a whole river ahead of me.

I want to see the world.

But when I look into your eyes I realize, I've seen it all.

(take me there.)

go your own way

never forget this

Hell's waiting for you, little girl.
I can't promise you a light at the end of a tunnel.
Not yet. 
But I can promise you a candle to guide you through it.
Close your eyes, take a breath, say a prayer, shed a tear. 
God knows what's up. 
Never forget that. 
And never forget that I love you.

(so what the heck?)

Hopes and dreams are for sissies. 
I'm all about accomplishments.

wouldn't wannabe anybody else

one of those days when the first time you come is 10:40 pm

I think the reason I love being around the drama kids so much is because out of everyone I know, they are the most accepting people.

Doesn't everyone want to be accepted?

Thanks Kat and Riley, you are just too great.

my heart starts to skip a beat

When the yearbook deadline comes around, I am reminded I don't have a boyfriend.
But all other times of the year,  I seem to remember
I hate boys.

it's been a long day

I wish I was invisible.

say, you love me

say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime, that's all I ask of you.

(some songs makes you wanna be in love) 

As good ole Momma Tanna would say, "Your time will come."

dusk to dawn

When you are little, your nightmares are of monsters.
You dream of being chased by these creatures, haunted by them. 
However, when you wake up, these monsters don't exist. 


When you are older, your nightmares are of reality.
Real things that are happening, people you know and care about. 
Although when you wake up, the nightmare isn't true. 
The "monsters-of-reality" remain.

(and it's coming to get you.)

i still got the seed

The truth about humans is that no one is as cracked up as they appear to be.
