My momma called me this morning at noon, and it woke me up. I realize noon is a late time to be woken up, but I was just tired. I haven’t gotten much sleep this week and I needed it. Anyway, I was kind of a turd to her. After talking for a little, she asked me if Jared was ever going to visit. So then I had to explain a little about what happened. I so wasn’t in the mood to talk about...

I did my scheduled 10 mile run today. Yipes. It was a challenge. I’ve never run that far before. I’m glad I finished. I did it in 1:56:16. My goal was under 2 hours so goal accomplished! 11:50 miles/min isn’t too bad of a pace considering the amount of walking I did. I tried a strawberry banana Gu on my run. I’ve heard that a lot of people think they taste gross, but I...

laurennicolelove: I wish we’d step away from the “is pornography okay/not okay” and “is watching porn morally acceptable or is it morally offensive.” At the end of the day, one person’s moral verdict isn’t helpful or practical when held up against what it’s scientifically doing to individuals and relationships. If you are dealing with pornography in your relationship or in your life, I...

leeyounger: Anonymous asked: So, I don’t want to settle for the wrong relationship and get hurt, but it’s so hard waiting and watching all my friends being in these really great relationships when nothing ever seems to happen for me.

I woke up this morning with an overwhelming sense of peace. It’s dissipated just a tad since waking up, but still, it’s pretty cool. I didn’t know I could be at peace about something so quickly. I’m not gunna lie, yesterday was rough. I didn’t want to leave the cocoon on my couch. All I wanted to do was sleep and cry and pray and listen to Explosions in the Sky and...
Female arousal, and maintaining control
unkaglen: Anonymous asked: I’ve been following your blog for awhile and you give great advice, so I was wondering if you could help me. I’ve been seeing this guy for about 8 months now. We’re both Christians, and we’ve both committed to saving sex for marriage, and we have boundaries and everything to help keep that commitment. However… just because we don’t go that far (or even close to that...
Nothing, absolutely nothing, makes me more nervous/terrified than conducting. Argh. I just feel so incredibly awkward and unprepared (probably because I am…) when I conduct. I feel like I don’t have any clue what I’m doing. And I don’t really know where to start to practice. Blah blah blah. Waaaaa. Problems problems problems. Silly silly silly. Complain complain complain. ...

*Note: This is very disjointed, disorganized, and a big long bunch of ramblin. I just need to write my thoughts down. I need to write to Daddy. I don’t understand. I don’t understand at all, but I take comfort in the fact that God’s always got it under control. He can and will make good out of every situation when I am earnestly seeking Him.

Seventeen: You've said girls should embrace their curves. Why did you think it important to make that statement?
Jennifer Lawrence: When I was playing Mystique in X-Men, I remember thinking, If I'm going to be naked in paint in front of the entire world, I'm going to look like a woman. I'm going to have curves and have boobs and have a butt. Because girls are going to look at that, and if I look like a scarecrow, they are going to think, Oh, that's normal. It's not normal. I'm just so sick of these young girls with diets. I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic. I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, "Nobody's eating bread--I just had to finish everyone's burgers". I think it's really important for girls to have people to look up to and feel good about themselves.
