This is a video about abortion, which I know is a super contraversial topic, but this video has changed a lot of people's minds and made me think of things in a completely different light. Even if you're completely pro-choice you may find this interesting. I am personally a die hard pro-life person, but I'm definitely not trying to force my beliefs on anyone <3

This is such an incredibly beautiful performance of this song... <3
I'm sure Lady Gaga has her own special meaning to this song, but when I listen to it I can think of my own meaning to it as well.I relate to this very well. Thank you Lady Gaga, for singing what I can't express in words.

The world is different
From the view of a window.
The rain is less harsh
And the cold less bitter.
But the mind should know
That a window is only a wall,
And outside that wall,
The world is not afraid to tear you apart.
You're safer in the window of your heart and mind.
Nothing can touch you there,
Except from yourself.

Justin Furstenfield is the lead singer of my favorite contemporary rock band, Blue October. They have a really amazing, beautiful and original sound and if you've never listened to them I highly recommend them. Justin has always inspired me because he uses his hardships in his life for his work and channels them into this positive activity. Blue October's albums show his fury, frustration, depression, and bi polar disorder.
If you listen to their songs, each of them tells a different story. It's incredible <3 Their newest album came out on August 16th, and it's called Any Man in America. The songs are mostly about Justin's ex wife and his young daughter. If you've never listened to it, do it.
- Approaching Normal
- The Anwsers (Their first album)
- Consent To Treatment
- History For Sale
Check them out!

Lonely trains, they're rolling
Along the dingy, darkened track
A shriek arises from them
In my heart I know they're never coming back.
For like the lonely heart they wail
For their broken loves they sing
This world is one universal pain
And our cries are one syncronized ring.
The racing rivers and channeling streams
It's like they float along our dreams
And the smoke that arises from the brick stack
Is a lost love now gone, and never coming back.

Habits or addictions that attack at your weakest time and take you over.
Drugs, sex, porn, hate, abuse, depression.
That last one is my monster.
I can't seem to escape it.
This looming cloud that's gaining on me now matter how fast I run.

After all this time of pure happiness
I've taken what's precious, what's sacred and true
I've taken it all and ruined you.
You were always there, you could never leave
Until I gave you more than you could recieve
Now everyday for me is guilt and regret
And I don't think you've realized it quite yet.
If I could take back everything I've ever done
And truly show you that I am the one
It would be done in a second,a heartbeat
But all my efforts are now ending in defeat.
Time and patience is all you ask of me
But I never thought I would see
That the fault was mine, and mine alone
And my heart has all this time been made of stone.
Happiness is what you need
And I know with time you will succeed
You'll find everything you ever dreamed
Even if it isn't the ending it seemed.
If you ever read this, I know that you'll know it was meant for you.
I hate myself for doing this to you.
So as anyone who has read this has noticed, I've kind of been going through a rough time right now, and it's been pretty hard to deal with. So what I do when I feel this way is sing. That's pretty much the only thing that completely distracts me and puts me in a different mindset (besides praying)So here's a list of the songs that I've been singing lately..
Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
Beth - KISS
Angels - Owl City
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Hallelujah - The Canadian Tenors
Pretty - The Cranberries
Closer To Fine - Indigo Girls
Tantra - Journey
Running Up That Hill - Placebo
Brain Damage - Pink Floyd
Piece Of My Heart - Janis Joplin
Faithfully - Journey
Heart Of The Ocean - Gaelic Storm
The Tale of the Lighthouse - Nickel Creek
When You Say Nothing At All - Allison Krausse
Nobody Home - Pink Floyd
Kid Fears - Indigo Girls

I just got home from the most beautiful experience in my life.. It was a work camp hosted by the Catholic diocese of Arlington, and it made me see everything in an entirely new light. We got there last Saturday, met our crew of workers on Sunday, and then my crew and I worked the entire week until today on a woman's wheelchair ramp.
Our resident was SO grateful for us being there, and even though we were dirty, hungry, and constantly tired, it was worth it to hear her tear up and thank us for everything we did for her. I honestly believe she did more for me than I did for her.
When we get caught up in our own lives, we sometimes don't realize how lucky we really are.. I got away from my own selfish problems and issues and completely focused on God and other people who were less fortunate than I am. This is something I am not used to doing, I only do it about once a year, but I wish I could get everyone I know to experience it for themselves. It really does change your life, for the better.
When I got home today, I realized something. I had lost one of the most important things that I ever had. I freaked out about it at first, but then saw that the past week has really, really taught me something. God is always there for me. Now matter how upset I get, if my heart breaks, or if everything comes crashing down on me in my life. I also have my family and some INCREDIBLE friends who will always be there for me no matter what. Things are bad now, but you guys will pull me out and everything will turn out completely ok. I love you all so much, thank you for everything.
For those of you who believe in a higher power, please pray for me. I will return the favor.

I still remember walking into that school my 1st day of eighth grade four years ago, and how much of a nightmare it was. Every year it kept improving, and now I can't even imagine leaving :/ It's exciting, but at the same time terrifying. This is supposed to be the best year of them all, and you have to make it count. Then it's out into college and adulthood and life.
But honestly, I really don't know what I want. I do know that I want to get married very, very badly.
So this next year is really going to be crazy. I want to know what my plan is by the end of it. This will be interesting :P

The older I get, the sadder I seem.
I cuddle with my childhood toys, and hold on
This world seems to be developing such a horrible theme
You're only as good as they make you out to be.
The longer I'm around, the more I realize
Sometimes you need to go back, to move ahead
Rediscover your past, your roots, your dreams
Something silent, that needed to be said.
Beauty, radiance, intelligence, life
Don't come with practice, but with heart
Believe, conquer, observe, love, strive
Do everything you can, to keep your heart and soul alive.

That's going to change. I'm ready for a new beginning. Not just with my blog, but with my life. We can't wipe away what we did in the past, but we can forgive ourselves and move on.
That's just what I'm going to do :)
I hope you enjoy my blog!
