YouTube. Now with a free slap back to reality.

"People are always talking about how they want to get to know God. You people don’t want to get to know God! God is horrifying! God will screw you up! He will turn everything on its head. He’ll make all your leasts your greatests and your greatests your leasts! He will make you come to grips with the reality that you aren’t in control of anything! ANYTHING! You won’t even be in control of your own spiritual highs. So you out there, you better think twice before you say you want to know God. God might be love, but love is terrifying."

   While the videos on blimeycow's channel tend to be sarcastic, this section of the video entitled "Get to Know God" stood out to me. I actually agree for the most part.
   Being a Christian, getting to know God, having a relationship with Him, isn't all fun and games. It isn't always a happy-go-lucky venture. Being a Christian is more than just doing "Christian things" or being a good person. It's not telling everyone Jesus loves them, or winning theological debates. 
   Being a Christian really is giving up your life for God and letting Him fulfill His plan in your life. That doesn't mean that you have to be miserable, or that you have to go be a missionary in some foreign country. God has a different plan for everyone. That being said, it's His plan and not ours. 
   We naturally want lots of cool stuff, and friends, and to have everything work the way we want it to in life. God can see the bigger picture. While it may not be pleasant now, or what we want, or what we think is good for us, it is what's best, because He's God, and He loves us.
   So yes, He will change your life. He will turn everything you thought you had under control on it's head. Your desires and goals will be completely in His hands. You will have to come to grips with the fact that, by getting to know God, you have to let go of control. Of everything. Because "being a Christian" isn't about us. It's about God.

Isn't love terrifying interwebz?

4. A Community I Love

Well...I honestly can't think of a complete community that I love right now. I know, it's sad.
I do love my church.
I'll chose that as the community that I love. No one is perfect and I guess I'm just having trouble focusing on the good things around me right now. My youth-group specifically is pretty special. You see, normally I would be too old for youth-group. I'm 20. But! My youth-group includes anyone from Jr. High to 30 something. We mix all of the ages together instead of keeping them apart. I think it's pretty cool to see someone in college being friends with someone just starting high-school.

This also means I can never tell how old people are...

Fuzzy Wuzzy

Well hello there!
I've been away for a bit haven't I...
Well, let's see. There wassssss Thanksgiving!

We had our cousins over for thanksgiving. They brought the turkey and the rolls. We made the stuffing, potatoes, green bean casserole, you know, all that good stuff.

.....I started this post a few hours ago......

Since then I've eaten 3 cherry chip cakeballs  and watched both "The Day After Tomorrow" and "iRobot" with my dad.
I got to talk to Bob and St. tonight. I may get to see both of them soonish and meet Bob's bf hopefully. Yeah.

I'm gonna go to bed soon. All I want to do lately is sleep. I fell asleep in the middle of hanging out with Bree and WnN.
Actually interwebz, correction: All I feel like doing is sleeping. There's a difference.

3. Should My Town Use Social Media?

Hmmm. Should my town use social media?

I personally don't think that I am the one who should decide if my town should use social media or not. The choice is up to the person who is using it, not someone else. With that being said, some people just aren't mature enough to use sites such as Facebook or tumblr. The amount of ridiculous drama that people can start on social networking sites is frightening. The younger you are, the more of your personal life you seem to put out into the internet. People need to understand that it's really easy for hackers to do just that. They aren't stupid. They can gather information from things like your first and last name, birth-date, parents names and other information.

As hard as it is and as tired as I am, I force myself to get dinner at least once a week with my girlfriends, or have a sleepover. Otherwise my life is just work.

But I like to know that someone is stronger than I am. I want to be able to know that if I get tired, somebody is there to hold up the fort. I like knowing that I can't pick a refrigerator alone. God did not make me strong enough to do that.

I already ate all my food...

Today I woke up with a headache. It seemed like I was running late and I hadn't gotten my stuff together before so it was scattered around our house. I went to bed at 10 last night and I still woke up tired this morning. My neck is messed up and hurts like anything. I really wish I had some kind of money to get a massage or go to the chiropractor or something. Anyway, I went to Public Speaking this morning for class at 8. It was good. We started doing our impromptu speeches. I go our next class period, which is Wednesday.
After class, I lugged my stuff to "the nerd corner." They weren't really inclusive or welcoming today which I found strange but I decided to do some of my homework. After correcting my study guide for New Testament, I got on the computer and puttzed around Facebook and my other blog on here.
Yumi got to school a little while later and we went downstairs to get food. She bought a breakfast sandwich and I inhaled all of the food I had brought for lunch.....woops. The sad thing is, I'm still hungry. She's in her math class now and then we have Japanese. After that, I'm heading over to Sheep's house and we are going to study for that final we have tonight. I'm supposed to have memorized three verses but my headache is barely letting me think let alone memorize things.
I hope our test in Japanese isn't too hard today. Oh, I registered for my next class at our church. Woo.
I need to remember to bring $25 dollars tonight to buy the book. I hope I don't forget. .... I hope a lot of things.
I'm hungry.
Man, this conversation is really deteriorating.......

I want a vacation interwebz. A real freaking vacation.

-Melina Rose

P.S. I just stared at the screen for a few minutes with nothing going through my brain.
P.P.S. I don't remember what was so important that I was going to say.

2. Ways I Embrace My Audience.

I haven't really thought about this topic before. I guess I just hope that people will relate to what I have to say and what is going on in my life. I really just say what I want on my blog. That is, I say what I don't mind people seeing for the most part. Some stuff you just have to keep private you know?
Everyone has studied for something at some point. Most people have worked some kind of job. Everyone has things that bug them or make them happy.
I guess the way I embrace my audience is to be myself and just talk to them like I would a friend.

1. How I use Facebook.

I use Facebook for many reasons. It helps me stay in touch with people, know more about what is going on, express myself and even entertain myself.

  • Post on their walls
  • Stalk their updates
  • Send them game invites
  • Chat with them on the chat feature
  • Text them through the message system
Games I play:
  • Coco Girl
  • Sims
How I express myself:
  • Comment on things
  • Write notes
  • Write statuses
  • Post pictures

The Heart

There once was a heart. It was cracked, bruised and dry. It was kept in a metal box that sat on one end of a park bench that no one really sat on anymore.
The park was a little ways away from a school and any number of students could have paid attention to it. But they didn’t. They didn’t really give it a second glance as it sat there on its bench. A few had ventured towards it but changed their minds when they saw the large padlock on the front. It wasn’t actually locked, only jammed in a closed kind of position. The truth was that the girl who the heart belonged to didn’t have the key in the first place.
            Everyday she walked by the park on her way home from school and everyday there was someone sitting by her box. She never really noticed or paid attention to it. She didn’t want anyone to know it was her heart.
            Everyday he saw her walking by the park with her friends. They were always laughing and she was always smiling but there was no sparkle in her eyes.
            He had been there the day she had come running into the park, by herself, holding that box. The tears constantly rolled down her cheeks as she made her way. She finally fell to her knees in front of that bench, shoulders shaking from her sobs. He watched with a heavy heart as she opened the box and placed her heart inside it. It was since that day he had sat next to the metal box on the park bench, the quiet beating barely audible.
            One day, he pulled the box onto his lap and inserted a key into the lock. He turned it and heard a faint click as the jammed, partially closed lock fully opened. Setting it aside, he lifted the lid and looked in.
            Tears appeared at the edges of his eyes as he saw the full condition of the heart. It was in rough shape, covered by welts and bruises. Cracks marred the once smooth membrane and it was obvious that it was in desperate need of moisture. As his tears fell, the heart became softer. It was no longer dry, watered by his tears.
            It was at that moment that two feet appeared in front of him. He lifted his head to meet the girl’s slightly suspicious but vulnerable gaze.
            “May I take care of it?” he asked, gesturing to the heart in his lap.
            “Will you actually?” she replied, not trusting him.
            “I have been all along.” He returned her searching stare with one that radiated warmth and she slowly sat down next to him. Carefully, he set the box on her lap. “Why don’t you take it out?”
            The girl’s shoulders drooped slightly and hung her head before sitting up straight like she had forgotten she wasn’t allowed weakness and then was prodded back into resolute pain. “It’s safe there. Nothing can get in and hurt it.” She avoided eye contact, looking in the opposite direction.
            He smiled sadly and placed his hand gently over her small, cold one. She looked back, feeling the warmth envelop it.
            “Keeping your heart in this box only hurts it more. It won’t heal unless you take it out.”
            The girl tried to look away as she felt tears spring to her eyes but couldn’t. There was such warmth and kindness, true love, in his eyes.
            “Why isn’t it in there?” He pointed to her chest where it should have been.
            “It’s defective. It betrayed me.” Her voice cracked. “It isn’t to be trusted.” she whispered to no one in particular.
            “I can teach it. I can teach it to do the right things if you’ll let me.”


I will not say "Do not weep", for not all tears are an evil.

And with that opening quote I will share with you a poem I wrote yesterday about an experience of mine. :)
It is to/about my daddy.


Steady heartbeat

Steady breath

My tears on your shirt

as I lean on your chest

I know you love me

and I love you

I feel safe

When I'm with you

Hello there!

I'm here at school and just got out of my Public Speaking class not to long ago. I managed to check my school email finally and got an A on my Persuasive Speeche outline! Yay.
I work tonight...meh. I need the money but I really don't feel like dealing with the immature people there today. I need to get a new job soon.
I don't know if I told you, but I applied at Target and was going to have an interview even but found out that it would be a fairly large paycut so I had to decline. Unfortune, since I was excited about the opportunity. I need to apply at more places and work on that. I think that it would be good to organize myself a bit better first though.
I need to get more sleep regularly and eat regularly and keep my room clean and do my homework ahead of time and and......yeah.

I had a Rockstar energy drink this morning. I'm still tired. Mmm.

I should do my homework. I did a journal for New Testament this morning but this is what I should to do still before work.

  • 4 NT journals
  • 3 pages of NT study guide questons
  • Memorize two memory verses
  • Edit Persuasive Speech
  • Organize visual aid for Persuasive Speech
  • Eat lunch
  • Eat.....more.
  • Nap? Psh. Wishful thinking that one is.
  • ................The fall colors are really pretty ......
  • Ooooo shinyyyyyyy
Okay interwebz, I should be productive.

New steps I didn't know I needed to take

I've never really thought about if I cared about myself more than others from the view that I should care about myself. Yes, you need to care about others and not be selfish but there comes a point where it is unhealthy to care about others more than yourself. I got to that point and I have finally realized it.
As hard as it is, I have taken steps to change this.

My family and friends are happy about this.

yay... :)

Hey guys,
I'm still super busy but I figured if I can make time to sit in my bed and laze around the computer I can make time to write a quick (real) blog post.
Today I woke up around 10am after staying up till 2:30am or so. I'm super smart can't you tell? :P My mom made french toast so I had one and a half pieces of that.
After that I haven't accomplished much, though I should bed. I heard the song I previously posted on the radio and so I got on my computer to post it. It seemed to fit me well. I read a post by my friend, checked my Facebook notifications, attempted to talk to Mnonaa on Skype, checked an art website I'm on...etc.
Now it is time for productivity! Watch me accomplish nothing. I need to shower, clean my room (or at least clear my floor) and get ready for the costume party tonight!
I'm going to wear my thrift-store wedding dress, black lace up boots, black cloak, and then Yumi is going to lace me into one of her black leather corsets. I'm going to be a Vampire Slayer/Hunter so I think I should find a cross or something..... Fail. Well I did kind of just decide yesterday and the party is tonight sooooo. Ahaha. I'm kind of excited and kind of nervous.
Anywhoo.... I also have homework to do. And I need to do it. And not put it off. Like I always do. Yeah.

I think I'll start with a load of laundry interwebz.
-Melina Rose

I know I'm broken but You alone can mend this heart of mine.

I call, You hear me 
I've lost it all 
And it's more than I can bear 
I feel so empty

You're strong, I'm weary 
I'm holding on 
But I feel like giving in 
But still You're with me

And even though I'm walking 
Through the valley of the shadow 
I will hold tight to the hand of Him 
Whose love will comfort me 
And when all hope is gone 
And I've been wounded in the battle 
He is all the strength that I will ever need 
He will carry me

I know I'm broken 
But You alone 
Can mend this heart of mine 
You're always with me

And even though I'm walking 
Through the valley of the shadow 
I will hold tight to the hand of Him 
Whose love will comfort me 
And when all hope is gone 
And I've been wounded in the battle 
He is all the strength that I will ever need 
He will carry me 
He will carry me

And even though I feel so lonely 
Like I have never been before 
You never said it would be easy 
But You said You'd see me through the storm

And even though I'm walking 
Through the valley of the shadow 
I will hold tight to the hand of Him 
Whose love will comfort me 
And when all hope is gone 
And I've been wounded in my battle 
He is all the strength that I will ever need 
He will carry me 
He will carry me 
He will carry me

All I want is a hug....but please don't touch me.

I'm really sick of society shoving sex in my face.
I don't want to be thought of as an object and all I see is guys that view girls that way. I think I'm losing hope in humanity. I mean, I know there are good people out there, ones that are respectful and actually care about you instead of what you look like. But...
What happened to respect?
I'm sad that the norm seems to be that it's okay, even encouraged, to make dirty/offensive/invasive remarks to people and then that person is just expected to laugh or respond in the same way. People think you can't take a joke, or you're no fun, or you're "weird" if you don't.
Why can't people love anymore? Like really love.
Where are the ones that can?

I have a lot to do.
Last night I wrote my outline for my informative speech and did a load of laundry. I ended up staying up until 3:30am. ..... My bad. Anyway school says that you can't be on the computer right now unless you are doing homework. I am currently waiting for a vlog to upload so I thought I might as well quick write you a post.
I did the workshop for my belief statement this morning in Public Speaking and then edited my vlog from NYC which took about an hour an a half. It takes a while to upload too. After this, I work on my New Testament homework and Japanese homework.

For now I wait interwebz

The smell of strong coffee in the morning

Hello my dears!
I am currently sitting in Bob's apartment staring out of the window and into the city. It is beautiful outside and I am excited to go out with Lysa and explore. I slept on Sampson Howard (the couch) and it was super comfy. One of her roomates made coffee and it smells soooo good. I took a shower shortly after I woke up and their hot water here is almost instant! You don't have to wait for it to heat up! :o

Anyway, I will try to catch you up more later!

Tata interwebz!

I'm in New York!

I got on my flight and ended up sitting inbetween two business men. One smelled of onions and sweat and boiled eggs. I didn't know which one but I did my best to go to sleep despite being in the middle. I only got one or two hours of sleep last night and so I was super wiped out. I was glad to get off of the plane either way. I waited for a few minutes for Bob and Lysa and then was tackle hugged by Bob.  We got on the bus and then the train and then we got to Bob's apartment! She made orange chicken and rice and we are watching Juno. We are probably going to crash soon. Bob works early tomorrow and Lysa and I are going to go pick up the tickets for the concert!

I'mma letchu go cause I didn't bring my computer and I'm on Bob's

Panda should be packing...

I really should be packing right now or pumping out the outline for my informative speech but I wanted to fill you in. After school tomorrow, I am leaving for NYC! That's right! I get to go back to New York! Lysa and I get to go to a free Kpop concert and we are soooo beyond excited! I went shopping at the mall today with Yumi and got purple fishnets (to be worn tastefully of course) and bow hairclips! I managed to not buy any clothes or shoes! (quite a feat) We also got bubble tea and popcorn. :D
The outline for my informative speech is due the day I get back from NY and I won't be in class so I'm hoping to do it yet tonight so I can turn it in early. I suppose I shouldn't have gone to the mall today and done that instead but.....I had to. be irrisponsible and go spend money It was a blast. :D
I'm off to pack and do that outline if possible though so niiiight :D

Oyasumi interwebz. I'm so excited!

-Melina Rose


Ocha is (green) tea in Japanese by the way. :D

There wasn't to much special about today. Despite staying up late last night I woke up on time awake and ready to get down to it. I wrapped myself up in my new scarf and after packing a lunch, headed out the door. I grabbed a 99cent any size cappuccino from the gas station and was on my way. 
I got to school with plenty of time and finished my drink while texting Lysa. Our teacher came to open the door to the classroom and we all filed in and set ourselves down in our usual places. There was a little time to talk to my classmates before class started and then when it did we got moved around. We had prep for our group impromptu speeches and so I got moved to a group where it was just me and two other guys. Our teacher had one of the guys select a piece of paper to determine our topic and it It was rather awkward and I was glad when the other two girls in our group showed up. We managed to decide on using the meaning of the word sex as gender after some very awkward attempts at conversation about our speech. It will still be interesting talking about differences between genders, but it is much better to me than talking about the act of sex.
I'm just very awkward about such things. :3

Hello Wednesday

Morning :)
I woke up about the time I was supposed to today but took a bit longer to get ready than planned. Therefore, I have no substantial food substances with me. I have Chex-mix and an apple. I bought some very over-priced coffee from our school java stop and it was delicious. I needed coffee this morning. I woke up disgruntled and annoyed and had no time to make it at home. It tends to improve my mood. You see, I was dumb again and stayed up till a little after two in the morning.
I made it to my class early (thus the time to buy coffee) despite leaving late. Traffic....when will you make up your mind? The first group of people gave their speeches and I didn't have any problems paying attention. You see, our next speech is a poetry/lyric speech where we read a poem or lyrics from a song and then explain why we chose it and what it means to us.
I don't like country music to often but I enjoyed the lyrics to Rascal Flatts song "Stand" quite a bit.

You feel like a candle in a hurricane
Just like a picture with a broken frame
Alone and helpless
Like you've lost your fight
But you'll be alright, you'll be alright

Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause its all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you've had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand, Then you stand
Life's like a novel
With the end ripped out
The edge of a canyon
With only one way down
Take what you're given before its gone
Start holding on, keep holding on

Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you're made of
You might bend till you break
Cause it's all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you've had enough
You get mad, you get strong
Wipe your hands, shake it off
Then you stand, then you stand

Everytime you get up
And get back in the race
One more small piece of you
Starts to fall into place

Another classmate did her speech on How it Feels to Fly by Alica Keys. One speech I really enjoyed was on Psalm 23. I admired that the guy wasn't afraid to read from the Bible to our entire class and then explain about it. It's too bad I'm fairly shy about talking to the people in my class. I would like to get to know a few... My friend Persia is from that class but she had to work today. I showed her my poem that I plan to present and she really encouraged me to do it. I'm really nervous to share in front of people in the first place, let alone about a poem I wrote, but I think I'm going to do it. I'm going to push myself out of my comfort zone.
This is the poem I'm going to do:

Sailing 'Till Sunrise
By me :)

No matter what is changing
When I'm anything but sure
As long as I keep moving
It will pass me by

As I wave goodbye
To the scenery ever changing
I feel a small glimmer
Of hope within me rise

And within my eyes
As skies light grows dimmer
I see a mournful ship
Sailing 'till sunrise

Our ever thinking minds
Into mine I dip
I search for the answer
All seem like taunting lies

Will I ever find
A way to kill this cancer
That lies within my heart
Wreaking havoc inside

"In me confide."
A voice whispers int he dark
My heart soars
But then I fear and hide

"Please come to my side."
There are steps int he corridor
They echo inside me
Making me cry

So gentle and kind
Yet I don't want to see
That if I just let go
Things will get better in time


Yeah, so that's my poem. It's very personal but I'm going to share it with my class. I think I'll probably just write some thoughts down to go with it so I don't blank out completely from being so nervous. Wish me luck?

Anyway, later today, after Japanese is done, I'm going to go to youthgroup! What's the big deal, you go every week? Yes, I know, but this week is preparation for a giant event our church puts on! Our whole youth group is getting together to pack bags of food for people who need it. They will be distributed on Saturday with other things like clothes, toys, furniture, etc. It is a lot of fun and goes all day.
A friend from school here is coming, as well as Mnonaa and Bree. It should be fun but I'm a tiny bit nervous since my school friend is coming.

I'm going to work on my speech now interwebz,

Pastels& Neons, Mopeds & Semis

Hey there!

I know it's been a bit since I've posted again but that is just because I've been rather busy. When I have had the time to blog I was to tired or lazy. :P
School is running along in it's timely way. It's not quite sprinting yet but it keeps me on my toes. I had a test every day last week except for one and gave my first speech. I've been working a fair amount too.
I was driving home from school and saw a guy on a neon green moped wearing a pastel multi-colored shirt with a semi truck following closely behind. For some reason this entertained me.
I actually have to go to school now but I will try to fill you in soon!

Off I go interwebz!

Work Day

Happy Labor Day!

This is going to be a quick post but here it is. :)

Today I got up, caught up on the various websites I follow, and then got down to productivity.
I started cleaning my room. Now, you might think, "Oh cleaning your room! no biggie.". Not quite. By cleaning my room, I mean unpacking everything and organizing everything. I have my three paper bags marked Keep, Donate, and Trash. I moved my dresser out of my closet and into my room so that I will actually use it, and I did a load of laundry. My room currently is still a mess because it always works that way when I try to organize it. I've gotten rid of at least two bags of clothes and have one bag of trash. I feel accomplished. I leave for my seven hour shift at work in fifteen minutes and then when I get home I will be working on my room more and studying for my Japanese test that is tomorrow.
Random fact: Yesterday I organized all of my worship music.
Woo! *takes a breath* So yeah! I should grab something to eat and then head!

Have a wonderful Labor Day interwebz

Hello there.
I'm here at school. When I don't need to be. Cause I don't have my 8am class today. But I thought I did. So.... I came. :P
I forgot I was writing this post when I got distracted by facebook. It's been an hour. I should get off of the computer. I'm going to go find some hot water and eat my oatmeal that I brought and drink my hot chocolate :P. Yum.
I have class at 1pm since I withdrew from chemistry, (more on that later) so I have a ton of time to do homework and just whatever. I might find those piano rooms they have here and play around. :) It would be good to do that.
First comes food!

I'm off interewebz,

I was so happy when you smiled
Your smile breaks through the clouds of grey

Far from the sunny days that lie in sleep
Waiting with patience for the spring
When the flowers will bloom renewed again
Knowing there's more beyond the pain of today

Although the scars of yesterday remain
You can keep on living as much as your heart believes

You can't be born again 
All though you can change
Let's stay together always

Echos in my mind


I woke up at a decent hour and set upon the task of cleaning my room. I ate breakfast first and then got down to it. I didn't finish but I did make good progress. Daddy was washing the cobwebs out of our entryway outside and so I ran outside to get him since we had planned to watch a movie together before I headed off to work. We weren't able to finish it but I found out yesterday (Sunday) that he bought it. I guess I will get to see the end! I went to work and, while it was slow, it was a fairly good shift. After work I ran home and threw my Japanese homework in my backpack along with a change of clothes and drove to the college that I want to go to. My bff/sissy St. goes there! I hadn't seen her in around 6 months!!! It was a much needed reunion. :) We stayed up until 4am catching up on what's been going on with life and then we went to bed.


We were up at 7:45am to go with two of her friends to a church near by.
The sermon was on healing and both St. and I found it very interesting. It made for good conversation later.
When we got back to campus, we both went to the "best meal of the week", Sunday brunch. I'm pretty sure I ate more than I had in the two days before it put together! I was so full. St. had to work after that so we went back to her dorm and I took a two hour nap until she got back.
She took me on a tour of a gorgeous old building there and I attempted to play her the song I've been working on on the piano. I only have parts of it memorized though so, after a bit, I reverted to the few worship songs I know the chords too. She showed me the rest of the building and it was a really great time.
We ran outside to hear someone playing trumpet and both tried to keep down our giggles as we stood underneath the window it was escaping from. It was very pretty. We then skipped back to her dorm and started dinner. While it was cooking, we worked on our homework. I got one page of Japanese homework done and that was it. We had rice and Buffalo chicken for dinner. The dried/candied pineapple she had was an amazing dessert.
After finishing eating, we decided to go on another adventure since it was dark out. I found that I had indeed brought my book of piano music with me and so we went back to the building with the grand piano and I played it for her three times. We decided to record it the fourth time but my arms were already tired from playing it the first three times (it's 14 pages long) and I was nervous since I knew I was taping myself. I ended up making a lot of mistakes... :( Hopefully someday I will play it well without mistakes.
I had to head home after that but as we once again ran out of that building we heard someone playing piano. It was coming from a window fairly close to the one that had been releasing the trumpet before and we stood under it. When they came to a stopping point we clapped and then ran off giggling again.
We were both sad to say goodbye but I plan to make it a point to see her more often this semester. She is a very dear friend and I need to see her more. <3
When I got home, my parents were watching a movie. I ran upstairs and showered while they were still awake. (My shower is right next to their room and so it wakes them up.) They were both upstairs when I got out so I said goodnight to my daddy and then was pulled into conversation with my momma. :) It was a good conversation. She told me to go to bed when I was practically nodding off in the middle of it though. I showed her a few good songs that I feel relate to me right now and then climbed in bed. I set my alarm on my phone and realized that it was just a few more minutes to midnight and Lysa's birthday. I posted on her wall at midnight (woop I got first post. I win.) and then went to sleep.

Monday (today)
I woke up at 6:40 instead of 6 like my alarm was supposed to tell me to. I slid out of bed in a rushed, but not in the least willing way. Got dressed. Throwing my stuff into my bag, I ran downstairs and hopped in the truck to drive to school.
My 8am class was a blur. Like....a fuzzy blur. I was having a really hard time staying awake. For my hour break I came up here and sat on facebook until it was time for Chemistry. Chemistry was terrifying and not in a happy way. Math + Struggling to stay awake = desire to drop the class. I need to call the college I want to go to and talk with them about that. (I already took a lab science but they didn't accept it)
I am now on my two hour break before Japanese, still struggling to stay awake. I'm not awake enough to accomplish homework and there is no place to take a nap so.... I just have to grin and bear it while trying to keep myself awake without caffeine. You see, since I woke up late, I have no food or drink. I refuse to spend a riridiculous amount for something that won't make that much difference. I'll eat when I get home.
I've had....a luna bar. *shrugs* It's something.

I'm currently using loud music and blogging to keep myself awake. I still have the loud music but now I no longer have blogging because this post has come to an end.

Best of luck in the world on non-sleepers interwebz

You' Got the Keys ;)

They say we're all in the pursuit of happiness
A life so fabulous so we fight for what's ours like an activist
the struggles here we can find across the atlas
and it all started when Adam gave up his own palace
now the earth waits for it's rightful owner
2,000 years ago the second Adam told us
the kingdom is at hand, died for the sins of man
just so he could bring us back to his original plan
where we rule over the land, meet every demand
while nature awaits for us kings to take a stand
so we need to understand we can change our circumstances
the kingdom is in us so we choose when to advance

You got the keys inside this kingdom,
lift up your head it's only begun,
keep holding on and you'll see the son
everybody sing it now everybody sing it now

[Chorus again]

Ooooooh ooooh oh
ooooooh oh ooh oh oooh

I heard you say that you would die for me, gladly give
your life for me, cry for me, all so I could call you
when I'm so in need of promises you've spoken, my
heart was always broken cause you gave the keys
to life but in my pride I had them stolen, you say that
you redeem us and bring us to a place where we can see
the keys can never be stolen they just misplaced and
so we rise from the ashes, stand for the masses,
[ Find more Lyrics on ]
proclaim that victory is ours, and so
we never give up even though times get hard to
understand, it's never enough for us to sit back
and hope he has a plan we gotta stand up and face the cold
with boldness that is focused on the fact we got the keys
so just believe there's nothing closed


And it's all because

You got the keys inside this kingdom,
lift up your head it's only begun,
keep holding on and you'll see the son
everybody sing it now everybody sing it now


We ain't never givin’ up the keys
No, never givin’ up
We ain't never givin’ up the keys
No, we ain't never, No, we ain't never No

So many promises you gave,
and we just turned and walked away
but now I see the price you paid
was enough for us to live

Yeah, yeah, victorious yeah,
Yeah, yeah, victorious yeah,

You got the keys inside this kingdom,
lift up your head it's only begun,
keep holding on and you'll see the son
everybody sing it now everybody sing it now



Hello there! I managed to stay up till 2 or 2:30am trying to decide if I was going to do more homework or just go to bed. Funny eh?
I woke up this morning at 6am and left the house at 6:40am. I didn't really have time to get ready so I didn't eat and I feel gross because I didn't shower. Mmm. I stopped at the gas station to get a small cappachinno so that I would be slightly more awake and for the drive to school I was. Public speaking was good and it made me laugh a lot. My teacher compared the fear of public speaking to Alice in Wonderland when she was fighting the Jabberwocky. "You just have to turn around and face it for it to shrink." I like that professor.
I left class with my new friend Persia and after looking around the new student center and the Japanese garden, we went to the library to study before class.
I ran into my friend from Chemistry in the hall and we walked to class together. I managed to eat some grapes while we waited for the class before us to let out. Class was rather boring actually. I had already read the section in the book and done the homework that she was going over. I felt like I was going to fall asleep.... I really should get in the habit of going to bed early.
Now I'm on my two hour break until Japanese class. I'm up in the computer lab because I've given up on bringing my clunky laptop. My bag is heavy enough as it is.
I'll probably munch on some more grapes and keep working on my second page of Japanese homework. It isn't due until next week but I want to stay ahead so I can learn it better. People here are always surprised that I'm taking it even though it isn't required. :P

Sooooo I guess I'll talk to you later interwebz

Hello there.......if you still even read my blog.

Today I woke up early to go to school again. The drive was much much better than my first day of school considering there was no stop and go traffic. This may be due to the fact that I left 20 minutes earlier. I arrived at school and didn't have trouble finding a spot. I browsed the internet on my phone for the half hour I had to spare before my class.
Public speaking is still terrifying to me but it is going well and I'm enjoying it kind of. Today we had to get up and stand in front of the class to introduce ourselves. Our full name, major, and what animal or vegetable we would be and why. I chose a pheonix even though it doesn't actually exist because they rise from the ashes and I find that really inspiring.
I've always loved pheonixs.
After class I went up to the computer lab to sort out my online stuff. You see, last night when I tried to log in to the online website for homework it wouldn't let me in. I found out that they changed the email system since last time I went here and so I needed to just log in to that. I'm all set up now and have read all of the material for Chemistry and taken my short lab safety quiz.
I got assigned my first homework sheet for that today so I'll probably do it tonight some time. It isn't due until next Friday.
My next class is Japanese at 1pm. I have a two hour break between Chemistry and Japanese. And! I fail at spelling chemistry every time. I always have to backspace and make my e an i. I shall prevail! lol
I love Japanese class even though it is hard. I hope to make at least a few friends there. I mean, come on, we have similar interests! :)
I suppose I should eat something. Sorry I'm rambling now haha. I didn't eat breakfast and it's already 11:56. Pretty close to lunch time if I do say so myself and I rather not be embarrassed by my stomach making loud suggestions in class.
I've been hanging out on here and Polyvore....LtC, YouTube, my writing website, facebook....Yup. Well, and doing my homework of course. ;)
Today has been a fairly good day so far. I'm super tired and hungry but hopefully I will be able to pick myself up a bit and get lots done when I get home cleaning wise. I know my mom would love to see my room clean some time soon.

Until later interwebz,

Today was my first day of school at my new (community) college. I left my house at twenty to seven with a piece of toast and started out on my way to school. I stopped in at Caribou and got a small iced coffee with caramel in it before continuing on my way.
It was stop and go traffic so I got a good leg work-out with the clutch being such an active part of my drive. It was quite stressful but I wasn't unhappy. I got to school and had to go to the side parking lot to find a spot. Up a flight of stairs and all the way across the large building and I made it to my Public Speaking class two minutes late. He hadn't started yet. My heart was pounding from the stress and effort of carting my large backpack across the entire college.
An hour later and we were released. I ran and got my student ID number and then got my student ID card before going back across the campus to my Chemistry class. It is a very full class and honestly terrifying. I talked with a girl in that class a bit. Maybe we will be friends.
I had a two hour break before my next class so I went and found a spot by my classroom to eat my bento box lunch. Peanut butter sandwich cut into dinosaur shapes, green grapes, a strawberry and salad. I filled in all of the scheduling information from my syllabuses into my planner which took forever. After trying not to fall asleep for half an hour or so I went into the classroom. Class was exciting but intimidating. I had a hard time understanding the teacher but I have wanted to take Japanese for so long that my enthusiasm overwhelmed any feelings of apprehension.
Class ended and I went downstairs to pick up my textbooks. After picking them up, I walked to my truck and drove home where I promptly climbed into my bed with my laptop.
I don't have much homework assigned yet so I'm not worried.
I came downstairs after almost falling asleep sitting up and ate some mashed potatoes with cheese and chicken that my dad had made. The tv was on and we watched America's got Talent and after eating a bowl of cocoa krispies the show switched to American Ninja Warrior.
It is now 10:30 and I am more tired than I would have thought I would be.

I think I shall go to bed interwebz.

Chips. Healthy lunch I know.

Ello my lovelies.

A lot has happened since my last posts in July and there is a lot that I haven't told you. So I'm going to do my best and just tell it as it is. If you don't want to read the following I won't blame you. I treat my blog more like a journal than something for you guys....sorry.

The trip in July to California was to visit my grandparents. It was the last time I was going to see my grandpa before he died. That night was really hard. There wasn't really a goodbye. We just said I love you as he shuffled into the back bedroom. I cried the whole way back to the house. No one noticed.
You see, my grandpa had cancer. They said he had a few weeks. I returned to Wisconsin after the end of the trip and continued with the normal stuffs there. My parents texted me one morning before work to tell me that he would be passing in the next few days. He passed that night while I was at work. My parent's text read something like "There is an email from Grandma you will want to read. We love you." I knew what it was going to say before I read it. I managed to finish my shift. I thought I would be fine but I could tell that I was having a hard time as I finished up. I clocked out, walked outside and as soon as I got to my truck just lost it. I was just like....really? here? in your work parkinglot.... get it together! But no, there I was clinging to the truckbed sobbing my face off. I hate crying.

The rest of my time in Wisconsin was great. :) Sephre and I crammed a bunch of fun stuff into the time we had left. Photoshoots, trips to the asian market, vlogging, antique stores, goofing off, pilates, all that good stuff.
There was the usual stress of packing my stuff up and trying to organize stuff to go back home, getting ready for the wedding I was in, and worrying about the funeral/memorial service. For a while we thought that both Sephre and I would maybe be able to go together but I turned out she couldn't make it. :(
After one last trip to the asian market before I left, we packed up the truck with the extremely confusing and complicated straps (go us) and I made the 6 hour drive home leaving my sister cousin behind. I was sad to leave.
I ended up stopping a lot. I had to add the tarp to the contraption so that my stuff wouldn't get soaked and it took me two tries. The first try was probably about half and hour and the second an hour. It was deathly hot and I was glad to get back into the air-conditioned cab. After that I really didn't want to make anymore stops so I pretty much drove straight through.

Once I got home and unloaded the truck with my daddy I think I just went to bed. I was so tired. The next day I went to worship practice after attempting to unpack everything. It was just Bree, Cheese, Piggy and me but it was good.

We left for Oregon the next day. The day after we arrived was the wedding rehearsal. There were two days to just hang out and then there was the wedding. It was amazing. I would have to say my two favorite moments from that part of our trip would be when I helped my other cousin with his songwriting and the wedding reception. We went to bed soon after leaving the reception. Two hours of sleep later we were at the airport to catch our flight to California.
We arrived in Cali and got some In-n-Out burger. The wake/viewing was that evening but thankfully I didn't have to go. I am very tired of seeing dead bodies and I didn't need the closer. I stayed at my aunt and uncle's house with my cousins instead. Dinner was had and the next day was the memorial service. It was the hardest funeral I have ever been to. I had six people die last year and didn't cry for any of the funerals. Tears were shed at this one. Quite a few. Moving on though. It was good to see family again (even though I had just seen them) and I enjoyed being squished in a limo with my two cousins and the rest of my side of the family. It was their first funeral. I can't imagine.

We went home the next day and I went straight to the County fair with friends. After that I had a sleep-over at Mnonaa's house with Bob.
The next day I went to the beach with Tallkid and hung out for the rest of the day adding Bree laterish for a Target run. I eventually slept over at her house.

Since then it's been fairly busy. I have slept at my own house twice since being home from the trip. Tallkid left yesterday for school and Bob leaves today. St. still goes to college a fair distance away and Mnonaa is a fair distance as well. Everyone's busy.
I'm back to my old work here and that is going well. I got lots of hours my first week back which is good because I need the money. I got my textbooks for around $100 which was a shock and a happy one at that. I'm going to buy myself a nice new backpack. :)
I work 6-c tonight and start school on Monday. 8am class 45 minutes away! wooo

I came home this morning and tried to catch up on all of the blog posts I've missed from the people I follow. Since it started a few months ago it will take me a while. I got a load of laundry done, put away my luggage, and plan to run to Target and Khols right about now.

There's been more that's been going on than that but that is my update for you. You can email me if you really want more.

Until later interwebz

Take off

I'm tired. I close my eyes as our plane waits for it's turn on the runway. Another plane lands and we turn, lining up with the long stretch, streaked with black marks from incoming planes. We sit, waiting. The engines whine and we begin our quick, swaying journey down the designated route. I yawn as we lift into the air smoothly, feeling gravity pull me heavily into my seat. The city is so small from my window. Goodbye Minnesota. I yawn again as I settle in for our few-hour flight to California.

Long time no see

Terribly sorry it has been so long. I plan to keep up better as of now.

I've mostly working but I also took a trip to California to visit my Grandparents. I've had a lot on my mind lately. A bit to much to put here.
Oh! My birthday! Haha I almost forgot about it which doesn't happen to often. I worked, got off early, went on a walk by myself in a new dress I got, caught fireflies, named them, danced around in the dark yard like a dork, and replied to the posts on my wall. That's about it. It was a good birthday :)

Today I slept until 4pm. My body just needed the sleep I guess. I didn't go to bed late or anything.... When I got up I started a load of laundry, did a little cleaning, took a shower, wrote a bit, talked to a few friends on facebook, and texted my Daddy. My Aunt came home and I caught up with her a bit, brought some of my laundry up from the basement, and lazed around on the computer while eating dinner. I'm still doing that actually... *shrugs*
It's in the 90s outside so I don't really feel like going for a walk. (Even though I do feel like going for a walk.) You know what I mean.
I just remembered that I wrote a post on the plane to California... (I tried to sleep on the way home.)
I think I will find that notebook and post it.

Once again sorry for my absence interwebz

Okay so that was a fail acronym thingy but....mmm. I want a hug. I got one from Sephre earlier but man, I'm just kind of bumming right now...

Hugzzzzzz. Wanttttt.

Ugh. I just....I just really want to be in Minnesota right now. I need to support my friend and I feel so helpless. I'm going to see her for just a little bit this Tuesday before I fly out to California but....ugh. This coming week is going to be really hard. I'm already emotionally exaughsted and I haven't even hugged one of  my best friends who's dad just died or been to visit my grandpa who is dying soon.

Death. I seriously hate you. With a burning passion.

All I can feel is sad though. I can't even be mad...

Angry Blogger is Angry

  • General Idea of this post:
    Don't write dumb stuff on people's statuss that could make them feel bad and is negative.
  • No matter who it is you don't know where that person is at and how it will affect them. my facebook status was just "Bored." One of my friends commented she was bored too yeah blah blah blah. About an hour later someone comments on my status that only boring people get bored according to so and so. I was rather surprised at this passive aggressive insult and simply responded with ":o"

    Now, I may have a history with this woman's daughter but this woman is also a family friend. I really wasn't expecting this to come from her as I have always seen her as a kind person. 
    Not exactly helping my "trust no one" mentality...
    Soooooo here are some various quotes on kindness:
    Never look down on anybody unless you're helping him up.
    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice. ~Author Unknown
    Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are. ~Author Unknown
    If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~Dalai Lama
    Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it. ~Author Unknown
    Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not. ~Samuel Johnson
    When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people. ~Abraham Joshua Heschel
    and finally what I set my status to:
    You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson  

    I don't like confrontation and there was no reason for one so I just picked the quote I thought least direct. I did become rather upset when I realized that this person had insulted my friend in the process of insulting me. 

    If you are going to insult me that is fine. Go ahead. 
    Don't you ever insult my friends. 

    Oh, interwebz, how lovely this life is is it not?

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary...

Independence day is coming up soon and after church tonight, it has me thinking about fighting for what we believe in.

When we see something not right do we fight against it? Do we stand up for what we believe in? Do we try to encourage the ones who are struggling?

This world has many things wrong in it and younger people today don't even realize it. They have it taught to them at a young age what our culture expects from them and what is "normal".
I have been reading on this site where people write anonymous letters to their crushes and some are really heartbreaking. Some are beautiful. Some are twisted.
There was one entry that really caught my eye though and I'm going to put it here.

I feel like the whole world is pressuring me into having my first relationship and falling in love and having sex and yet I am not interested in anyone and no one is interested in me so here I sit feeling dull and inadequate all because love and sex is all anyone can talk about and I'm sick of it because I can't empathize with any of it and no one can empathize with me.

I have always found it rather obvious that our culture focuses on this. I mean, you turn on the tv and it isn't even the shows you have to watch out for. The commercials are filled with it. Those subtle voices screaming at you, "Buy this and be beautiful." "If you look this way people will love you." "You need this product for people to accept you." The message off so many of these commercials are "If no one is coming on to you then you are worthless."
It really breaks my heart to see girls just 15 years old saying things like "I've never kissed anyone. Something must be wrong with me." NO!
You are beautiful! You are precious! You are favored by the King and someone will always love you.

Don't let this world tell you differently.

With love to all of you beautiful people out there (YES! YOU!)

Someday, in my made up future, I will wake up to the birds singing and the sunlight streaming through my window. Smiling, I will slip out from between my covers and stretch, fingers towards the ceiling, before walking into the kitchen. I will make myself a delicious, healthy, breakfast and eat it outside in the morning air. After putting the dishes away, getting dressed and pulling my hair back, I will go and sit down at my deep, black, grand piano and let all of my thoughts and feelings flow out of my fingertips until they echo in the air.
Maybe I will laugh, a smile on my face. Maybe I will cry, tears escaping with each note.
And after I'm done, and there is nothing left to be said, I will close that gorgeous piano back up. I will close the doors to the room where the emotions still hover thick in the air, and I will step into the breathtaking sunshine. Eyes closed, I will listen, waiting for your response.

Garage Saling in Illinois!

Today Sephre and my great aunt drove to Illinois to go to a giant mass of garage sales with some other family of mine. It was superbly awesome! I slept the hour drive there and thankfully it wasn't raining. Sephre and I went off to do some adventuring and found some amazing deals. I got two, antique, leather suitcases for $10, a cute shirt, bracelet and earring for $3 and a Stir Crazy popcorn maker for $3. Don't tell my mom about that last one. It's her birthday present! She has been looking for a Stir Crazy for forever! :D

I was going to tell you more but I got distracted answering over 70 notifications and their corresponding 30 emails from facebook. I decided to go through my friend list and write on all the girl's walls just trying to encourage them and make them feel special. I didn't really think about the replies.... haha. Facebook should have an anon option! lol

I have to go get ready for work now! I work 6-c to learn their closing stuff here.

Bye bye interwebz :)

I can't feel my arm....just sayin.

Today is my last day of nannying. I am currently sitting on the couch with one of my arms pinned by a child. We are on our third time watching Dora the Explorer. I have my arm back!! Yaaay!  Someone was getting into trouble upstairs so I went to get them to come back downstairs.......and fell all the way from the top of the stairs to the bottom.... *sigh* Ow.
That really hurt. -_- I feel dizzy and weird.

I suppose that I should make lunch for us now...
*goes to make lunch*

Water is on the stove. I'm just waiting for it to boil and then I will make some nice Mac 'n Cheese for the girls.
Note to self: Don't fall down the stairs.
Mmm girls are eating their lunch now. Naptime soon!! For them and me! lol Mmm they both are done now. How did you get covered in cheese? You were wearing a bib!! *sigh*

Yaaay the little two-year-old keeps saying kawaii!! :3

They are down for naps now and I did a little bit of cleaning. I think I might take a nap.....

My first google guitar song :P

Hello my dear blogging world.
As you can tell I've been rather busy and tired.


I worked today. It was actually rather cold outside (and inside too). There really isn't much of anything interesting that has happened today. All I did was work, stalk people on Facebook and write some tidbits. I mean, now I'm writing this but...yeah that's pretty much been it.
I'm thinking I'm going to take a nap. It gives me multiple good side effects. 1) Rest/Energy 2) Escape from thoughts 3) The two previously listed reasons! They are good enough! lol
Maybe I will read my book when I wake up...I miss reading for fun. I'm too tired right now though...

See ya later interwebz

-Melina Rose

But why are you here?

I worked 10-4 today. They decided to send the girl from Minnesota to find the store and get (a very specific kind) of burger buns. Haaa.... Came home really nasty from work and took the best cold shower ever. (It is/was really hot outside) Sephre got back and we did some stuff together and started dinner. She saw that I was exhausted and commanded me to go take a nap saying that she would wake me up for dinner.

This is what I've been told:

She came in to wake me up and thought I was kidding because I wouldn't respond. She yelled, poked, jabbed, made my phone ring and finally shook me rather roughly. Nothing worked except for the last one I opened my eyes. She told me that dinner was ready and all I said was "but why are you here?" LOL At that point she decided that I really needed the sleep and just left me there until I woke up by myself.

I honestly remember none of this.

Once I woke up I had steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans. For dessert, we had brownies and milk. We watched a movie about the life of Jane Austen and then Sephre and I went upstairs to work on catching up on vlog material. We have a ton to catch up but we put one together... I started my work uniform washing and it is in the dryer now.

I guess I'm feeling a little....something I don't know...I can't think of the right word to describe it. I just know that I'm missing people. It's not the "Oh I really miss people" feeling though. Ugh. Can't describe adequately.

I work later today (since it is past midnight now) and then Sephre and I are gonna hang out and do something fun. Not sure what.... lol Maybe we will go swimming? It has been storming since (now yesterday) evening and it is supposed to last through today. It has been incredibly hot every day this week. Always in the 90s. It is currently 63 degrees which is our low for today. I'm sure it will heat back up in the morning.

I'm going to sleep interwebz. Goodnight...

Quote of the Moment

The opposite of talking isn't listening. The opposite of talking is waiting.
Fran Lebowitz

To my dear readers: I will try to get you an update soon. I meant to write one (or more) today but I just never got around to it. (To much reading of a certain addicting website)

Shhhh I'm not awake

So I really should go to bed and sleep and such but I can't seem to feel sleepy. I leave for Wisconsin again at 8am and am scheduled to arrive at 11:11am! I like that arrival time :) I will have to fill you in on what I have been doing this weekend when I get back. I have more "free-time" there than I do here in Minnesota. It is really hard to try to see everyone in such a short amount of time! Here is the quick run down. I'll add more details later...

Wedding rehearsal
Went to bed around 12? *can't remember*

Got coffee with Bree and Christal
Watched From Prada to Nada  with my mom
Wedding reception
Stayed up late talking

Got up around 10am
Switched out cars
Picked up Mnonaa
Met up with Bree
Went and did Christals hair for prom
Went back to Bree's house and waited for people to show up
Went to an awesome park and hung out
Went to Chipotle where Mnonaa treated me :)
Said goodbye to Tallkid and then dropped off Bree
Drove Mnonaa home
Went home
Ate pie with family while watching Fair Game
Watched the end of my cousin winning a competition on tv
Went to Bob's house and hung out
Came home and sat on the deck with coffee looking at the stars and listening to the night sounds
Came inside and brought some of my stuff upstairs
Talked to Sephre and Tortuga online
Partially packed cool dresses to bring back to Wisconsin for photoshoot(s)

Should be asleep since it is 3:17 in the morning.....
