The beginning of college kinda reminds me of the...
But instead of “a/s/l?” it’s “Name/hometown/major?”
Tomorrow I'm officially a college student.
But tonight I saw an awesome band called Wasko and the Whiners and did laundry! Really though. Getting up in seven and a half hours to get ready for breakfast. Then onto class! I hope tomorrow goes well. I have my audition for which choir I’m in. I know I’m capable of keeping up with the Chamber choir. I just wonder if I’ll get in. Prayers would be greatly appreciated.
I feel like I suddenly don’t know what’s going on in anyone’s lives anymore. This is like, the first time I’ve really been on since Wednesday. School has been keeping me so busy, and I haven’t even started classes yet. Orientation was crazy. I’ve BARELY been able to even text my best friends from home. Today I’ve got mass, a run to Target with a bunch of...

"All sin is equal."
It really bothers me when I hear this. I don’t much believe in quoting a line of scripture to disprove this idea, because I’m positive that there’s another line that will “prove” it, but sin is anything we do or think in which we turn away from God. This cannot all be treated in the same way any more than when we do something that would hurt or go against our...
Urgent prayer request.
hannahrosee: My church choir director’s son was killed last night in Afghanistan. He was one of 6 with a beautiful wife & brand new baby girl. Their family is the heart of my entire parish community; it’s entirely heart breaking. Please hold Tim Steele & his family in prayer.

Fr. Shane Johnson: Normalizing pedophilia? →
fathershane: So there was a meeting of mental health professionals last week in Baltimore about normalizing pedophilia. Details here. Total media silence about it. Why? Sex and marriage got divorced in the 60s, and once you’ve accepted that sexual pleasure and marital fidelity don’t have to go together,… I’m thoroughly disgusted by this. But I was especially surprised by things...

It made me feel a lot better. You guys have no idea.
Today’s been so emotional. I can’t say that “I don’t want to go,” because it’s not that. I know how it feels when I would do anything to get out of a situation. My mom said I didn’t have to go to Ave if I didn’t feel ready. She gave me the option to get out. When I was debating whether or not I should do the endoscopy earlier this summer, all I...

After watching Father Shane’s link to Judy McDonald’s comedy skit, I was a little worried (because c’mon, what faithful Catholic doesn’t naturally tense up when a joke is made about confession?). So I googled her and I found this talk of hers. It starts with some jokes but it gets really serious at the end. I now totally trust any jokes that she makes aren’t malicious...
The Thief Lord.
By Cornelia Funke, despite being a children’s novel, is actually pretty solid. I saw the movie first, and it actually did the book justice. I’d recommend it for anyone who wants to do some light reading. Personally, since I’ve never been to Venice, it helped a lot for me to watch the movie first. (And let’s be honest - having Rollo Weeks in your mind for half of the novel...
Best way to get on my bad side?
Talk about abusing an animal. Or about how “dumb” it is. Or about how you want to kill it. You know what? It doesn’t matter how dumb it is. We have some pretty dumb people who live in this world, and we don’t kill them, do we? We don’t even joke about it. Not to mention that poor dog isn’t talking smack about you when you’re away. ALL life is sacred....
So, about tonight:
Just finally got all cleaned up and changed for bed. It’s 4:09am. Went to mass, which was beautiful but hard to keep up with because tons of things were skipped in the booklet. I can somewhat read Latin, but I’ve never really heard it spoken, aside from the slow pronunciation stuff in choir, so I had a hard time keeping up with the pace the language is supposed to be said in. We...
Going to my first ever Latin Mass tonight.
And then spending the evening with James and the Wifey. Gonna watch Avatar, since I’ve never seen it before. I’m pretty excited.
allforhisgreaterglory: I think that many people would agree with me if I said that music plays an important part in all of our lives. As Hans Christian Andersen once said, “Where words fail, music speaks.” No doubt, this current generation is all about self-expression, and creativity - and music certainly helps us to express what can’t be expressed through just words. But sometimes, we don’t...
Suddenly I really feel like I need someone to talk to, but I don’t know who to turn to.
My biggest beef with the internet:
Everyone’s drama is made public. Gossip has always existed, but never to this public of an extent.
John’s going to teach Matt and me how to swing dance tonight! I’m nervous that I’ll look like a fool, so I’m thinking I’ll force Matt to try first. I’m really excited, though. I’ll be able to actually dance for my party next week. Now I’ll just have to decide which dress to wear…

sweetandlovelygirl7: Please pray for our brothers and sisters in the Middle East and elsewhere throughout the world who are suffering for living their faith. Not everyone has the freedom to go to Mass freely and safely like we do.
