sorry i haven't been updating as frequently! somehow, there's always so many tasks to fulfill and i get bogged down with a lot of stuff. it's all good stuff, but sometimes i dont even know what's going on in my life. D:

but to break it down, i am currently college researching and refining my list of colleges to apply to! it's mucho research but i'm really enjoying it! it's exciting to think that i may be attending one of these schools in a year! :)

nevertheless, it's been rather overwhelming because there's so much i want to do and so much i want to achieve that i just want to stop sometimes. i feel like i won't get into my dream schools and like i'm just so far gone or something... meep. i'd appreciate your wishes and prayers for me to "just keep swimming"!

(my post is going to be generally incoherent because it's late at night, but anyway)

there's something about God that always makes things better. college stuff has really overwhelmed me, but i keep reminding myself that the victory is already won and that god has amazing plans for me (and for you, too obvi). :) as a matter of fact, they're so amazing that i can't even conceive how awesome they are. man, i can't wait to live that dream, and i hope i'm going on that path! that knowledge and my excitement for life just leaves me in blissful speechlessness. :]

so i must remind myself, even when things are rough, everything happens for the best and it's gonna be alright wherever i go. :) thanks God! phew! :)

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.'"
- Jeremiah 29:11-13

anyway, i dont have a fashion-y post todee; i've been in shorts and a tee lately since there's been no school. :P but here's some artistic pieces of inspiration i came across recently :)

by swedish designer Bea Szenfeld

i love the way these look like oil or gouche - i hope that's how you spell it - paintings! i love the simplicity and everything. :)

mickey mouse club boy from america's funniest homes videos:

song of the moment -
i have too many songs going in my head right now:

michael jackson - man in the mirror
florence and the machine - cosmic love (the music video is stellar)

have an utterly awesome day!! :) (i told you this would be a sporadic-y post) :P

Your posts always lifts my spirits and this one hasn't let me down :)

You are right- regardless of which school you pick, you WILL do amazing things in your life and the one you pick will lead you to the jackpot of opportunities because YOU will have picked it. Only you can feel what is best and you will know :) You will!

Don't worry too much about the whole college application process. I went through it last year, and while it's nerve wracking, it's also really exciting. I didn't get into a school that I considered a "dream" school, but I now go to a wonderful college that fits me well, and you'll find the same thing. All schools are what you make of them, and I'm sure you'll do wonderful things wherever you end up :)

Don't worry! You will be in my prayers and I'm sure that like you said, God has huge awesome plans for you! It's a stressful time of course but I'm happy that you can keep a level head about everything :)

Best of luck again with the college stuff, I know exactly how you are feeling. Just keep everything in perspective; and trust me that no matter where you end up, you WILL fall in love with college and do great. Columbia wasn't even on my mind (though on my list) when I was applying, and after having been rejected and waitlisted by my "dream schools", it was the best choice. Now I wouldn't give it up for the world. Sometimes I think of it this way: the admissions office probably knows more about whether you will be happy and successful at a college than you do yourself. Have faith :)
