It’s hard to go to sleep when the internet is just so full of gifs, lolcats, memes, blogs, videos, so on and so forth. It’s a gold mine! :’)
Taco Tuesday will be the death of me….
I’m gonna be shaving my facial hair soon, but I wanna keep the mustache…should I? Ugh…this is one of the hardest decisions of my life! :(
Why am I so full of energy right now when I should be asleep…I wish I could go play drums right now but the neighbors would freak out and call the cops. Speaking of which, even though I don’t really talk to any of my neighbors I’m really happy for them cause I’ve played my drums so loudly and consistently on a weekly basis for the past four years and I’ve never heard one complaint from them. I should take them all out for a round of beer, I think they’ve been great sports about all of the noise that I make. If I lived on any other street I’m sure I would have had the cops called on me by now. I won’t take my neighbors for granted, because even though they don’t talk to me or even really know me they have never complained to me when I know they have every right to. God bless America.
Welp, I wish I had someone to hang out with.
Still feeling the adrenaline rush from tonight’s show. Crowd surfing was a bust, but overall it was a pretty great show. I’m def gonna feel it in the morning, but it was totally worth it. Citizen was amazing, I wish they would have played a longer set. Every band was great especially TSSF but that was a given, in my opinion they’re simply the best pop punk band in the scene. Anyways, It feels like I’m at The Glasshouse all the time nowadays, def not complaining about that though, I’ve already been to plenty of awesome shows this year and there looks to be no signs of letting down either :)
Here’s to seeing more bands, hanging out with friends, and meeting cool new people(hopefully lol)
I usually don’t make personal posts like this, especially ones as lengthy but here goes nothing I guess ha. I went to church this past Sunday and we had a Pastor from Cuba come down and preach at our church that day, not only was this guy a Pastor but he was also a Prophet. A Prophet is someone who God speaks through, God expresses himself through Prophets to speak to peoples lives, maybe that’s not the clearest definition but maybe you’ll understand what I mean in a bit. So I was sitting there listening to him speak and he randomly paused in the middle of his preaching and he began prophesying over my life and he told me “God is going to use your life to help out the youth, to help bring them out of their brokenness and into the knowledge and love of God. But first He will break the chains that have held you captive for so long, let go of the past and don’t let it haunt you anymore, He will use your life to bring love to others. Do not be afraid, live without fear, God is with you, do not be afraid” It was the most craziest, amazing, and just thought provoking moment I’ve had in a long time. I could clearly hear the voice of God speaking to me through that man, His words pierced right through me. Today I was home alone and it was around one o’clock or something and I was cleaning around my house and I decided to sweep my kitchen. While I was doing so I began to think to myself about how useless I’ve been feeling with my life, I’ve been feeling this way for a long time. I’ve been wanting to accomplish so much but have accomplished so little. So I began to pray and I said “God if what you said the other day is real, show me that it’s real, show me that I’m not useless. That I can do something to help someone else, I don’t know where to start but I just need you to show me that I can make a difference. I believe what you said to me, I just need guidance, and I want to see some proof that I can do it” Ten minutes later I saw my moms van pull up in front of my house so I walked outside to see if she needed help bringing anything in. She stepped out of the van and I came up to her with my arms wide open and I hugged her and looked at her face and she looked tired. I started rubbing my hand on her back and she said “my back has been in pain, don’t stop massaging it and could you please pray, I need to be healed” I did just as she asked and right away I realized this was God’s answer. I prayed over her life and prayed for healing and for the pain to go away I felt God’s presence reassuring me of His love and kindness and clearing away any fear I had left. When I was finished praying my mom told me she didn’t feel any pain anymore! That she felt so much better and could walk without pain, she had been healed! To this moment I’m still left in amazement, and I know that even if I’ve felt useless in the past that it doesn’t dictate my present or my future. I am beginning to see that God can use my life to help others around me, I just need to let go of the past and walk away from my mistakes. I’m not perfect, nor will I ever be. But I am loved, and I will spread love to those around me until my very last breath.
Either today or tomorrow I’ll be getting a new drum kit, this will be my third drum kit…I didn’t think I would own this many drums in such a short period of time ha. I’m really anxious for this new kit to arrive, if only UPS shipping didn’t take so long.
