Galatians 5:17

Galatians 5:17 "For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish"
God's Word tells us to love the Lord with all of our heart, with all of our soul, and with all of our strength [Deut 6:4,5]. When you first got saved, you gave your heart to Jesus first. You didn't give Him your soul or our strength first. You gave Him your heart.
Satan will always counterfeit what God does, and do the exact opposite. He'll always go after your mind first, because he knows that if he can get something into your mind and get you to think continually about it, then he can get you to do it. That's why it's so important to realize that you CAN control your thoughts and desires.

Sin always starts in the mind. It's not sin to have an evil thought- that's temptation; but it is wrong to dwell on and entertain those thoughts. To make it simpler: A bird can lay an egg on your head, but only you can let him build a nest in your hair!

James 1:13-15 reminds us that if we think about sin long enough, we'll desire to sin. If we want to sin, we will eventually sin. After sin is done, it will leave us dead. That's why it's so important to walk in the Spirit and feed your mind with the Word of God.

Paul sums it up in Galatians 5:24,25: "And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit let us also walk in the Spirit." His Spirit helps you overcome evil desires!

All Dogs Go To Heaven

I miss this goofball.

what are your thoughts on Doggy Heaven?
I want to believe it exists, but I'm not too sure about it...

A Dog's Prayer
Remember me always but do not grieve for me too long
I have tried always to comfort you in times of sorrow, and have made every effort to add joy to your life.
I never wanted to cause you pain.
Peace for me is certain now, and I suspect I will have eternal sleep in the earth I have loved so well.
Please, after your period of grieving for me, make room in your heart for another.
You are the kind of human being that should always have a friend like me to love.
Your kind and gentle heart should not be wasted on my memory for too long.
Give your love to another.
I know your new friend will never take my place, because we had something very special.
It may not be quite the same, but a new devoted and loving companion will in time, become special in their own way.
You loved me very much and I loved you.
My spirit will always be with you, and no matter how deep my sleep, my grateful tail will always be wagging for you.

Hell Week

  • Sat.- Mom abandons me to go to Illinois for 2 weeks.
  • Sun.- blah day. gave up hope of going to see Family Force 5 [i won free tix, but no one could/would go w/ me]
  • Mon.- concert day turned depression day. complete w/ cookie dough ice cream, pudding made by my amazing sister, hair dye, & the ever so wonderful Edward Scissorhands. oh! & this is the night my puppy [Ian] got hurt. he had me up till 2.

  • Tues.- cleaning day. Ian seemed to be a little better so we didn't take him to the vet.
  • Wed.- Ian gets worse. more cleaning. he had me up till 2 again.
  • Thurs.- Take Ian to the vet. Vet poked him, & gave him pain meds... then went to Knott's Scary Farm. got home @ 2, Ian got even worse, had me up till 4am.

  • Fri.- wake up @ 8am & Ian lost movement in his back legs. he pooed in my room. have to carry him to the vet. Then we have to take him to the better vet... out in Tustin! he needs an MRI so we leave him there. find out that he has a ruptured disk in his lower back & a compressed disk in his mid back. He has surgery. Come home & nap then go to football game.

Mom comes home thursday.
Friday I leave for San Diego w/ friends for a concert & i'll be back Saturday. then Sunday I think my sister [Becca] is coming to town! :D
So things should be looking up soon.

I wish people would just be honest instead of making lame excuses & lying. Honestly, I'd rather be disappointed w/ the truth than be crushed that you lied.

"The worst thing about being lied to is knowing you weren't worth the truth."

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Alot of people tell me I go to too many concerts.
But really, what qualifies as "too many"? How many is too many?
& who are they to judge? hahaha

(photo cred: Jessicaaaa)

I'd just like to say, My friends are the greatest. I know i say that alot [if i don't, then i should!] but it's true. They make me feel better about some of the crappier stuff in my life & I couldn't love them more for it. I really am spoiled to have such amazing people in my life. Now, I'm not gunna lie, we do have our ugly moments where we don't really see eye to eye, but who doesn't? We get through them & grow from them. <3

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome

I think I have it.

Symptoms vary widely based on which type of EDS the patient has. In each case, however, the symptoms are ultimately due to faulty or reduced amounts of Type III collagen. EDS most typically affects the joints, skin, and blood vessels, the major signs and symptoms include:

There are other symptoms, but these are the main ones & i have like 6 of them.... lol

You're beautiful, it's true.

Sometimes girls just need to hear that they're pretty. Not hot. Not sexy. Pretty.(or beautiful) & it needs to be genuine. Not just some jerk trying to hit on her. Or a girl who says "you're pretty" but the look in her eye says "i hate your face!". lol no.
I don't exactly know where I was going with this, but i felt like it needed to be said.
So I said it :]
I know i have alot of issues with my own self esteem & self confidence & all that jazz. Whether it be my acne, my height, my weight, or my hair length (yeah i'm still sad about After 19 years though, I'm beginning to cope w/ my height. & as much as I hate to admit it, alot of it has to do w/ two guys, from bands I like, complementing me on being tall in a totally non-creepy way. [guess boys can be good for something...] I know it sounds retarded & I shouldn't care what these strangers think, but if it was for the better, why not? & I think the thing that i liked most was it wasn't coming from a shorty loving my height because they wished they were tall, it was coming from people who are taller than me. [yes! they do exist! haha]
again, I don't know where I was going w/ this. just thought I'd share, i guess. It's been on my mind lately & i haven't posted a blog in a while so this is what i give you :]

This one's for the girls-

2 most horrible things parents say.

The 2 worst things parents say:
1."Because I said so"
2."I don't need to explain myself"

Those are the two phrases that bug me to bits! "Because I said so" I understand can be a last resort when a child isn't listening, but all we want to know is WHY you're saying so. What is your reasoning behind it?
"I don't need to explain myself" but sometimes it helps. Especially when we don't understand. Instead that just cuts off the conversation & leaves us frustrated. We just want to understand where you're coming from so maybe we could see your side of it. Lord knows we're stubborn, but maybe if we had some logical answers as to why we're being told what we're being told we might understand and maybe even agree in the end.
Communication is waaay important!
Be open =]

Who put the "glad" in "gladiator"?

Negativity & I, we don't get along very well. I don't like being mad at people. I don't like fighting with people. I don't like people being mad at me, it makes me sad. I especially don't like when my parents are upset w/ me.
It seems like there has been a lot of negativity in my life lately. I could blame it on current events. I could blame it on what's going on in the world. Heck! I could even blame it on the cosmos [if i believed in all that jazz]. But I'm pretty sure that would get me nowhere. Bottom line is, I let it get to me.
But hopefully all that nonsense is dead & gone, and it's back to seeing a bright side in everything! Well... almost everything. =]

On another note:
4th of July was super!! My most favoritest holiday EVER was spent with the fam bam & Allegra & Deanna. Lots of food, yummy cobbler, delicious guacamole, pretty [&dangerous] fireworks, Edward Scissorhands & Beetlejuice, & sitting on the roof.
I also went fishing the other day! yay me! haha It was definitely an experience. I got seasick & slept most of the time. But the time when I was conscious was pretty fun. I caught a couple fish... with some help =]. lol I didn't get sunburned even though i slept in the sun! and I didn't fall overboard! :D That in itself is a success in my book.

Need a blue sky holiday

I've been having a really crappy day!
Woke up at noon [horrible]. We ran out of cereal, so I settled for applesauce and a frozen burrito since it was basically lunch anyway. Went to go buy a gift for Ashley, who's wedding is tomorow, & forgot a card...and something to wrap it in. Went to go look at shoes for the wedding but the mother was being ridiculous and forcing me to rush through the store because we didn't have time because I had to get my hair did later. I said let's just come back after, but she insisted we just hurry. Didn't find anything...didn't look real well...we were both annoyed at eachother. Got the hairs did. It's gone. My hair is now up to my shoulders. It hasn't been this short since 7th grade. It's cute, but I cried. I'm still crying. I can't get over it. Now the hair style I was planning on doing for the wedding is out the window. Came home and was supposed to go back out to eat; DIDN'T. Ended up having chips & guacamole, a slice of cheese, and a piece of beef jerky for dinner. I thought we were gunna go get a card; DIDN'T. Was supposed to do laundry; DIDN'T.
So now, I have to wake up extra early to see if my dad would be kind enough to take me to find a card and get back in enough time to get ready and figure out what to do with the hair.
And all this gloomy weather isn't helping!
*deep breath*
feeling a bit better now.
maybe a hot relaxing shower and some tea will help.
sleep isn't sounding too bad either.

My Prayer <3

(DISCLAIMER: I do not own these kids or know who they are. They were cute so I used them)

I don't know if you're near or far away
But I know that I'm thinking of you today
I don't know if I even know your name
But I know that I'm praying for you just the same

Someday we'll fall in love
You'll be mine and I will be yours
Our hearts will be one
And our love will ever endure

Then I'll need you, and I'll want you
And I'll find you someday
Then I'll love you, then I'll hold you
And I'll be with you always

Our love will be so strong and pure
You will make me feel like I have never felt before
You will be perfect only for me 
You will make these eyes begin to see

Someday we'll fall in love
You'll be mine and I will be yours
Our hearts will be one
And our love will ever endure

Then I'll need you, and I'll want you
And I'll find you someday
Then I'll love you, then I'll hold you
And I'll be with you always

Your faith for the Lord will be strong
Even though I know the wait is long
And though I'm young I still belive
That you're out there praying for me

Then I'll need you, and I'll want you
And I'll find you someday
Then I'll love you, then I'll hold you
And I'll be with you always

Prophetic dreams?

Ever had one of those?
I have!! It's an incredible experience when you realize what's going on! haha  Well, one weirded me out, but we won't speak of that :D Recently I've been having a ton of dreams and I love it! I love dreaming! It's so much fun! Unless in that dream you are a Bella Swann type character from Twilight and are with Edward Cullen (of course) [the one from the movie. not the Edward in my head] and stuck in the mountains while it's snowing and freezing and he's all pale and gross with rosie cheeks!  yes.... That was the dream I had a few nights ago. Except in my dream we like, fell down the mountain and I'm pretty sure I was trying to get away from the Edward and he was coming after me.  [story of my life- thanks alot Lisa for pointing that out to me!] LOL

Recently I also had a dream that consisted of me liking a dark haired boy, who liked me back, and we were in a hotel [with my mom and a whole bunch of friends], and i tripped over something.  Sounds semi normal right? Well! My mom had a dream that same night that I liked a dark haired boy, who liked me back, and we were in a hotel room and I tripped over something!    Bizarre right?!  I'm still spazzing over it...

Free concert this weekend! Big Beach to-do next weekend! and then Palm Springs for Bachelorette Getaway!!
sooooo excied!

Mind Vomit

Have you ever had one of those days/nights where the next morning you wake up and ask yourself "what happened??" but you're not a drugs or alchohol person? haha. I blame these random people I call friends. They're the greatest.
I've realized that no matter how old guys are, they will still act like boys and get excited over superhero movies and pretend to be said superheroes in a semi-empty parking lot at 4in the morning. It's quite entertaining :] and I wouldn't trade them for the world.
Speaking of which, I highly recommend seeing X-Men Origins:Wolverine. It's pretty fabulous. Gambit is pretty spankin' himself...AND HE MAKES THINGS SPARKLE SOMETIMES!
Do you have a movie that you can watch whenever you're feeling upset/frustrated/or just need something calming? I've realized that I have one, it changes from time to time, but right now it's Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. I don't know why, but I find it oddly calming. The Lord of the Rings is another one, but only if I have the time. haha
Let's talk about today's weather a tad okay?
This morning it was overcast and a bit humid but still really warm. The clouds burned off and the sun came out and it was still really hot. It started cooling down, we had an earthquake [that i'm still bitter about because it woke me up from my nap and i couldn't fall asleep again], got even cooler and it rained! Stopped raining and now i'm hot again. Oh, you are a funny one, Lord. lol
Ha, so this blog is just a bunch of mind vomit <--- grossest term ever but it seemed to fit.

judging books

As kids we're taught not to judge a book by it's cover. But when we're older we're told not to bring that "unique" looking book home to meet the family on Thanksgiving.


how weird is that? I just have one word of advice to my family - Don't be surprised ;D

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

I, I will survive!!

We made it!
We survived the roadtrip!
We're still alive! [though we came across some scary situations that lead us to believe we wouldn't be for long]
We're still friends!
We didn't bite eachothers heads off!
We still love eachother!
We had fun!

Such a fantastic experience. Drunk guy tried breaking into our room. I crowd surfed. Talked to strangers [actually kinda fun :D]. Got lost a couple times. Got sea sick [wasn't even on a boat]. Saw elephant seals! Visited cousing I haven't seen in 9 years. Took 600+ pics!

and now i'm sick with some God forsaken illness. I probably have walking pneumonia or bronchitis or something ridiculous like that.

Curve Balls

Cue curve ball #1
Issues finding a car to take on our road trip. Every option so far has broken down, been too small, too expensive, or something else.
But I'm thinking we have a solution... Lord willing and the creak don't rise.

Cue curve ball #2
money craziness
Which WILL be solved. It has to. If it doesn't everything falls apart.
Thank the Lord i'm a good saver. Yeah...that's right... this trip is coming out of my own little lint filled pocket.

Cue curve ball #3
....actually I can't think of a #3. yay! =D haha
That's pretty amazing.

I gave in...

I got a Twitter. hahaha

OhMyGoodness I leave in exactly one week for our roadtrip. I'm so excited. Off to San Jose for Fall Out Boy, Cobra Starship, All Time Low, Metro Station and Hey Monday!! Then to San Fran for major sight seeing, shopping, possible aquarium, and cousins I haven't seen in for-e-verr!!

Dream interpretations!

I've been fascinated by interpreting my dreams, lately! It's so interesting. I know that alot of it, if not all of it, is bogus, but it's fun. Kinda like when you were a kid and you'd pretend your friends house was haunted just because it was an explanation to all those creepy noises you would hear.
I've also taken up writing in a journal. It's pretty great. It's more personal than writing here on a blog where everyone can see it and I get to mention names in my journal!! muahaha. lol jaykay...kinda. It's also helped me realise some stuff about myself, which i guess is good.

Yet another rainy day in beautiful southern California. We were supposed to go to Knott's today but it closed because of the rain. =/ I was kinda bitter towards it [the rain] because of that, and it woke me up at 7am. I was also starting to grow tired of it and frustrated that we haven't had any warm weather for a few weeks. But when I went outside today after it had temporarily stopped raining I saw the most beautiful rainbow. My heart immediately stopped thinking "why God?! Why?!" and went to "You know what, Thanks Lord." I'm selfish. California desperately needs all the rain it can get and I just wanted the sun so I can work on my tan. Boo me! But you know, I'm going to enjoy the rain as much as I can in all my pale glory! =D

Self Realizations:

  • I'm selfish
  • I'm insecure
  • I let what people say affect me wayy more than I should
  • I feel obnoxious and I don't like it
  • I hold grudges
  • I'm bitter

Happy Singles Appreciation Day!!

Singles Date tomorrow! Baking cookies in the morning and chick flicks for the rest of the day. Sleeping away valentines last year was pretty chill. But getting sick from the percocet, being in a bulky sling, and not being able to move kinda sucked. (my shoulder surgery was the day before)

According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first 'valentine' greeting
himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a
young girl — who may have been his jailor's daughter — who visited him during
his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter,
which he signed 'From your Valentine,' an expression that is still in use today.
Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly
emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic, and, most importantly, romantic

Fun Valentines Day Facts:

  • In the Middle Ages, there was a belief that the first unmarried person of the opposite sex you met on the morning of St. Valentine's Day would become your spouse.

  • 73% of Valentine Day flowers are bought by men, whereas women buy only 23% of Valentine flowers.

  • Around 3% of pet owners prefer to give Valentine gifts to their pets, as they are more grateful than humans!

  • "Cupid" shoots people and it rhymes with "Stupid"

  • He is also the son of the goddess Venus

  • People had a belief that if a robin flies above an unmarried woman's head, then it is likely that her wedding knots would get tied with a sailor

  • People have heard about the Valentine’s Day Massacre. It was where Al Capone had men from a rival Alcohol smuggling gang gunned down with machine guns at close range. The part that the history books don’t tell is that the killing was a mercy killing motivated out of love, not greed. You see all these men would have eventually died from liver failure from all the booze. This was a much less painful way for them to go.

Sunny with a chance of...

SoCal's weather has been pretty bipolar (no pun intended).
Last week it was crazy hot and I was able to sun bathe. Then the rain came. Then the rain went. Then it came again. Then it went and the clouds went with it and it became insanely windy. And it somehow came back and left again. hahaha Throw in some thunder and we have "weather gumbo"!! ...gumbo is the stuff that has like, everything in it right? lol

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Such a rainy day. And it's mine.

Southern California is finally getting a good taste of rain! It's been raining/pooring all day and it's been fabulous!!! Spent the day relaxing, doing some laundry, making babies (computer program [no worries!]), and now I'm spending time with the ever so amazing Joker while eating popcorn and drinking hot cocoa.
I think I'll finish this day off by going to bed early....or telling myself I'm going to bed early and reading until the late hours of the night. Happens quite often....
Knott's tomorrow for Lisa's Birthday!!
Happy Birthday Lisapoo!!! <3>

Meet The Raisins!

Remember the California Raisins?! haha Omgoodness, I used to love watching this movie! If I could find it now, I'd be a very happy girl.
Also, Keep that girl I was talking about a couple posts back, in your prayers. Just found out she's pregnant and her and her boyfriend broke up.
It's odd how you can still love an old friend you haven't talked to in years.

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

It's February....

and it's 80 degrees in the shade! woo!
I was able to sit out in the backyard and read my book and tan for a little while before a bumble bee decided to crawl up my leg and I screamed and ran.

Thursday, January 29, 2009


I'm going to marry an Australian physical therapist/chiropractor/surgeon/plain ol' doctor.
I need a doctor with me 24/7 with everything that happens to me.
Aussie guys just aren't ugly. (well...most. lol)
So it's settled. Now I just need to talk it over with the Head Honcho upstairs.

Mentally Flinching

A couple of friends and I just made plans for a roadtrip in April. But everything came together wayy too smoothly. Call me pessimistic, but I'm waiting for that darn curve ball that the Bunny of Disappointment likes to throw at you at the most inopportune times!

But if this all works out, I will be one happy camper =D


Thursday, January 22, 2009

I'm the kind that lives forever

Some might think clumsiness is cute. Me- I think it's a burden. =P hahah Elise and I have decided that I should probably just marry a physical therapist.
Cinema Bizarre - Perhaps the most amazing band to come from Germany. And they are making their debut in the US in April and guess who might be going to see them? That's right! Me! =D I'm so stoked!
On another note. I might be having twin cousins sooner than expected! It's a bitter sweet moment. Just keep the whole situation in your prayers.

Sleeeeep for Daaaayys

Oh my word!
This weekend has been the craziest/best/most amazing/busiest weekend EVER!
Disneyland on Friday was fantastic! I was blessed with our amazing Southern California weather. I think it almost reached 90. Saturday and Sunday were spent with some of the most wonderful girlies you will ever meet.
Staying up for 24+ hours, going to bed at 2pm, waking up at 10pm, going back to bed at 2am, and then sleeping till 10am makes for a very tired Mandy....
Hahaha When i got home from the hotel I showered and I put clean sheet on my bed but then I got hungry so I decided I'd eat before i slept. But as I was crawling over my bed so i could get to the kitchen I fell over and that's all she wrote. hahah I toootally just like knocked out right then and there. I didn't even get to eat.

Birthday Weekend coming up!

I am beyond incredibly excited for my birthday this year!
Friday- My actuall Birthday- Going to Disneyland!! Thank you disneyland for the free ticket! and after my cousin MIGHT be coming over. =D
Saturday- My cousin is coming over in the morning (if not the night before). Then we're getting everything ready and heading over to the hotel for the party =) and then everyone else shows up and we party into the wee hours of the morn. Zero sleep is to be excpected.
Sunday- More partying leads to walking around the hotel like zombies until we get breakfast. Everyone leaves and later that night there's a possible concert with one of the Twilight hotties' bands. mmmm I hope that's something that will happen.
Monday- sleep.

I love his face!

Did you watch the Golden Globes tonight? I sure as heck did! haha It started out with just wanting to watch the red carpet to see who was there and to see all the gorgeous dresses, but then I found out that Heath Ledger was nominated for Best Supporting Actor so I had to find out if he won. And he did! I cried. No joke. I felt kinda lame, crying over some guy that had died and I don't even know him. But I really respect him as an actor (minus Brokeback Mountain) and I truely believe he went out with a bang with his role as The Joker in the Dark Knight. I can't get enough of it. Another reason to watch was for the ever amazing Johnny Depp. *sigh* Another man whose acting (and face) I just can't get enough of. =D haha

God Bless Russian grandmas who make Russian food!! My grandma made borscht for us tonight! And like a week ago she made holupchi!! It was amazing. I love her to death! She is such a funny old lady. She accidentally drank my tea, thinking that it was hers, and if you know her you'll know how she is about sharing food and drinks. lol If I had a magic lamp, I'd wish for her to live well into her 100s so my kids would be able to get to know her and her them. =D

My dad comes home tomorrow! Hopefully so does my camera! xD I hope that he enjoyed his time on the East Coast and I hope that maybe I'll get to see my sister soon too!! I miss her. lol

I just almost fainted in my bathroom....
not fun! I'm not happy at all!
At first I thought it might have been because I had just gotten my belly button pierced today and I was cleaning it and there was blood, but then I remembered that blood doesn't make me squeamish. So my next guess would have to be something in my neck. It's that or I've just become weak with "old age". Ha!
well I'm through with today. I've had enough of it and I want to see it go. It made me mad so I'm off to sleep.
G'night <3

"...A mime makes the invisible visible"

I used to want to be a mime. [[TRUE STORY]] I'm pretty good at not talking (sometimes) and I've always liked their make-up. They are oddly fascinating.
My birthday is in a week =D
I'm starting to get excited! haha

Blogging eh?

So I've decided to give "blogging" a go.

yay me!


So my neck is still sore. Two sprained vertebrae? Yes, that is what I was told. I was also told by someone else that that doesn't make any sense. -.- haha So I have two sprained "somethings" in my neck that causing a great deal of pain. But I go to see the chiropractor tomorrow again so things should be looking up soon =) Lord willing and I don't hit my head again.

On another note, I need better sleeping habits. Last night I went to bed at 2:30 only to be woken up at 4:30 to drop my Dad off at the airport. I'm pretty excited for him. and Becca of course =) I'm just hoping he'll get a good shot of the President (and the ship) and not get frustrated and throw my camera in the Atlantic....

Oh! and Happy Birthday Elvis Presley!!
All day I felt like I was forgetting something. The whole day just felt off. Then we had an earthquake and I thought that might have been it, but then I was watching TV Land and they kept playing shows about Elvis and then it hit me! It's his birthday!!! hahaha
That sent me into a little dance around the house and got me strange looks from my mom. haha gotta love her
