 We all get jealous sometimes. Some people get jealous because of things,  like phones...or clothes...or things.  I do feel a little envy when I see them, but I get over it fast. (The two things I was not able to get over. A pair of boots, which I now have, and a budgie. Want!) 

But I get jealous over opportunities. Some people get all  the breaks.

For example, our church, Saddleback church, has reached their goal of sending a missions team to every country in the world! (cue applause)
I helped by going to the Dominican Republic(last year) and Mexico(this year, who remembers!)
My brother went to Costa Rica on his second mission trip last month.

So to celebrate, Saddleback is making a coffee table book and documentary titled "To Every Nation" And my brother is getting interviewed for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Ooh. When I first heard it I was so jealous I could scream. C'mon, I'm a(admittedly spotlight-hogging) human. Come on! He's going to appear somewhere where people will really see him.

But when I think about it, he really deserves it. He's the middle child, and he never really gets much spotlight otherwise. He's the one who went on the trip. He gave his testimony to 200 pastors who came from all over South America. And he has a real impromptu sense of humor!

So good luck, bro, you deserve it. 

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing., 1 Thessalonians 5:11

*He really is funny. He's the "class clown". I can't wait to watch his interview.

*Come to think of it, they didn't say that the interview would absolutely be put on the documentary. But I bet it will.

**And if you don't understand the significance of this documentary, consider that our church is the 8th largest in the world, with over 20,000 weekly attenders.
*** Have I ever mentioned that I've always wanted to be in a documentary?


  1. 20,000? That is a HUGE church! Mine has maybe, 150. lol

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
