I’ve had an eventful past couple of days. I don’t have enough focus to be blogging really so today is going to be random. Well on Saturday I dyed my lovely blonde hair black and purple and I love it; I did it because I’ve always been too afraid to dye my whole head, but I figured since I’m shaving it all of anyway it’ll be fine. And I really like it. I also got a packet from St. Baldricks today and it got me really excited for March 7th; the big day. Also, at the store I read the introduction to a book called This Star Won’t Go Out, a real life story of a girl who passed away from cancer. I almost started to cry right there in the middle of Target. Seeing her pictures and simply reading the first few pages of her book made me emotional; it got so real. I felt inspired and motivated and I wished that March would come faster so I could rock my bald head in support of cancer patients. I’m just generally feeling inspired. This feeling has been here for a while now, along with this new dose of courage and bravery greatly supplied by my All In All. I just want to help people; volunteer somewhere, do a fundraiser or outreach night; just something to keep me from going crazy like I might if I spend one more day at home doing nothing.
I want my life to mean something. I want to inspire people. I want to be crazy and bold and confident. For the first time in my life I feel like I’ve almost reached that point. I don’t want to be Faith That Girl Who Is Really Quiet And You Should Get To Know Her Because Once You Do You Realize She’s Really Cool. No. I’m done with that. I want everyone to know who I am. I may never be the bravest most audacious person in the way the world sees it, but you can be dang sure I will be that in God’s eyes. I want to live for so much more then this. I want to achieve all my dreams. I want to be confident, I want to inspire greatness in others. And you know what? I will. Just watch me. One of my best friends taught me that I say “I’m trying” too much. I always “try” but I never “do.” So this time I want to do something. I will be confident, I will overcome my fears, I will stay strong, I will be all that God is calling me to be, and I will change the world.
On a less serious note, I took some pictures and went to the mall with friends and I watched movies and so here are some quotes and things that have been on my heart a lot. Oh! And my friend found my camera that I lost at camp since they went up the next weekend to work! Yay! Shoutout to Maddi and Giada! Love you guys!

(Because I thought it looked cool. Over it.)
(I did a photoshoot with my sister. She got a gorgeous new haircut.)
(Also did a photoshoot with my nephew today. Look at him!)
“I’m not particularly concerned with whether or not you like me, because I live to like you and…and I can’t like you anymore. So…so when you’re feeling real low and…and dirty, and your heart is splattered all over, don’t look to me to come pump you back up because maybe for the first time I wont be there.”-Duckie, Pretty In Pink. (My favorite movie
Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time we’re given.”
-The Fellowship Of The Ring
And one more thing, I love praying, especially for others. So as always, any prayer requests? You can always comment one if you need or even email me. (Check my About Me tab for the email address.) You can pray for me for strength with some spiritual things going on, and disciple for me to get back into exercising again and not get too caught up in it and in my writing. Because I have hardly touched my novel since I finished NaNoWriMo and rewriting is a pain. Love you guys! I hope you like my photography and rant!
