I’m leaving for college in 17 days. This is unreal.
I got a new backpack today.
One that’s actually big enough for textbooks. And it’s actually a backpack! I just used a messenger bag in high school and carried my books. It’s starting to feel like college is really approaching. I’m so nervous.
fathershane: Now we’re supposed to believe that pornography is actually beneficial for society? Destroying people’s ability to relate normally to the other sex and destroying so many families has a bright side? I guess there’s a reason that Scientific American gets called ”Science Fiction American.” The truth is here. Bottom line: I don’t want my husband, whether we’re married...
Watching Boy Meets World DVDs at 3:30am,
And it’s the only real creepy episode, where they all get detention and everyone starts dying. It’s the part where Feeny gets stabbed in the back with the scissors. The moment after he falls, the lights go out. Scared the crap out of me. It’s still storming, and I’m not feeling too super. (So naturally, I go on Tumblr and post about it.)
Dear Google News,
I know the world is grim, but could I get maybe one inspiring story? Eesh.
I’ve never understood why our culture thinks that illegally downloading music is okay. I know, a lot of people are going to get mad at me for this, but my opinions aren’t posted so I can be popular. One excuse I hear over and over again is “If I didn’t download my music, I wouldn’t have any music at all because I can’t afford it.” I have two arguments...
hreinleiki: Mass... It's Biblical?! →
waynoly: If anyone who ever went to a Roman Catholic Mass before, especially Non-Catholic Christians, it might seem so strange with all the vestments and chants and hymns. Unfortunately, a lot of Christians, including Catholics themselves, never knew why the way Mass is being held the way it is. For all I know, I never knew that Mass was a “celebration” of what is to come according to the Book...
I just woke up from a dream.
I was with my husband, only we were just engaged, and we were in a musical together. It was so cute! I’m in a really good mood now. I felt for him exactly how I want to feel about the man I marry. And it was just a really sweet dream. We had remained abstinent throughout our relationship, didn’t kiss that much, but loved each other enormously, and before all of the singing and...
The Weight Issue.
This has been bothering me for a long time, and I should’ve said something sooner, but better late than never. (TL;DR? Scroll down to the bold.) I’ve noticed on Tumblr there’s been a shift in what people see as “beautiful” when it comes to weight. This is fine - it’s about time we all stopped trying to be size 00 models and starving ourselves for beauty’s...
Catholic Mom: Non-Monogamy and Intimacy →
mystagogy: A few days ago, I was reading Archbishop Dolan’s comments on the passage of gay marriage and I learned something interesting. He wrote about an opinion piece that was published in a newspaper regarding non-monogamous marriages. So I did some googling. To my shock, a number of people think that non-monogamy in marriages makes sense….
"Gay, Catholic, and Doing Fine" →
“So, yes, it’s hard to be gay and Catholic — it’s hard to be anythingand Catholic — because I don’t always get to do what I want. Show me a religion where you always get to do what you want and I’ll show you a pretty shabby, lazy religion. Something not worth living or dying for, or even getting up in the morning for. That might be the kind of world John...

There was a lightening bug in my house.
So my best friend brought it in the basement in a cup and turned off the lights. The simple things in life are so wonderful.
Please pray for the people of Japan.
They just had a 7.1 earthquake and are in a tsunami warning. Not a whole lot of information is out, but they can’t be doing well.
I'm really tired.
But it feels weird going to bed before 1:00. But I have nothing to do. But-but-but… I’ll probably end up praying a rosary. It sounds like a good night for that. (As if there ever is a bad night for one.)
Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord? I have heard You...
yourgracelikethemorning: instant tears in church. Sang this one at Mr. Sauer’s funeral today.
If Caylee Anthony had been a fetus, nobody would...
Leaving in about a half an hour tonight for Mr. Sauer’s wake. I wonder how many people are going to be there saying a rosary for him. I bet it’s going to be beautiful.
To all of my followers:
I just got an e-mail from Microsoft about my Xbox gold membership, which makes me wonder… How many of you actually have an Xbox gamertag? If you do, you should definitely tell me what it is, either via this post or my ask box so I can add you. (:
"why do we have to go to church every week?"
ofthefaith: we do not go to church because God needs us we go to church because we need God! we owe it to Him, for our existence an hour of worship a week. and even still, we get the greatest of all gifts in the eucharist. say what you want about the mass, but once you understand it you will know that mass is anything but boring.

I’ve been really freaking out about doing the endoscopy ever since Wednesday. Through tears a couple of nights ago, I looked up what the point of doing one would be. Basically, an endoscopy can show acid reflux, inflammation, ulcers, cancer, or a stomach abnormality. A few years ago, I did a barium x-ray that already told us that I have minor acid reflux but don’t have any ulcers....
Here are the last three from our group of butterflies! So, when we counted caterpillars and eggs at the beginning of the season, we thought we had eighteen. Then, as time went on, we realized we only had seventeen critters. That would mean that we had two chrysalis left today. Then, lo and behold, we had three butterflies show up. We were all really relieved that the lost one raised itself and...
Four girls and a boy.
All of these guys were released on July 2nd. We lost track of who was who in the pictures, because, as you can imagine, with five butterflies, they tend to fly around and mix themselves up. Bernadette was the smallest girl by far, Carmen and Colette may as well have been twins, as they were around the same size and had this really beautiful brown on the inside of their wings, and Dorothy was the...

dennisjoealoy: definitionofbrotherhood: YES!!! right!?!?!? its there…RIGHT THERE!! blessed are those who believe without seeing…but ignorant, i say, those who see and STILL dont believe! You know what would be AWESOME?! If every skeptic and non-Catholic could learn about this… Oh wait - most people can because most people have Internet! xD So I had never heard of this miracle until just...

Yesterday was a day I'd like never to repeat.
For starters, I had a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday, and I scheduled when I’m going to do my endoscopy. It’s next Thursday at 9:15am, and I’m horrified out of my mind. Because of this, I spent a long time last night bawling my eyes out. I don’t feel like I have any other options at this point, but that doesn’t make the idea of them shoving a camera down my...
Round two, three, and four.
Here’s Carolyn, the first girl of the year, released on June 28th. She was named after Matt’s mother Carol. This boy’s name is Apollo, also released on June 28th. He started climbing on an Easter Lily leaf, and I thought it was a perfect picture so I pulled my camera out. Maybe he’s camera shy, but once I started snapping pictures, he pressed his face against the...
