So someone commented on my blog today even though I hadn’t posted anything in almost 3 years. This led me to come back onto my blog and read all the old entries and assess how much my life has changed since then and boy has it ever.

One thing that stood out to me the most about my posts was how close I seemed to be with God at the time. It seems genuine enough but that as been a journey in itself as of late.

So jus a few updates since the last time I’ve blogged which was a long while ago:

-I got a car for my 23rd bday, it’s since died and I got a new car which I have a lovely car payment for
-I did finally graduate from college (Fall 2011) with my Bachelors of Science in Business Administration Management
-I left my church and God in 2010 to live my life my way, went back and recently left again for similar yet different reasons (I have a new church, well kinda)
-I haven’t found a job in my field that I’d like to work however I have one that pays the bills
-My life has been “wonderful” (full of tests and trials)

So I’m going to try and blog more because of that last one to try and find a better way to handle life’s struggles than how I have been. I’ll give more details about certain things later if I’m so led.

So I was inspired to write this post by a few things…

First, my lil cousin called me today to tell me that her birthday is on monday… Like I needed the reminder LOL

She’s turning 19, about to go into the airforce, and trying to go to school. Makes me so proud LOL… my lil one is growing up LOL

Second, my bff (Jill) Angela wrote a blog about how she felt old and she’s only like 6 months older than me

Lastly, while reading TheNorEaster’s blog today I was brought attention to somethings about my maturity that I’d like to blog about

So I’m 22 years old… I don’t feel 22 at all. Sometimes I feel 5 other times I feel 15… All the time, I feel like a little kid.. not a 22 year old adult. I think alot is accredited to the fact that I am still in school, still live at home with my mother, and do not have a job. Maybe also because many people have told me that I needed to grow up.

Lately though I have been finding myself feeling more mature and interested in things that I didn’t even understand as a child. These mostly deal with the parallels of television and movies to the concepts and things of God and religion. A few that come to mind are Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and Harry Potter. These 4 things used to bore me to death… I had no interest in them at all. If Star Trek was on the television I’d be sleep in 5 seconds. I had no desired to watch any of the Lord of the Rings, Chronicles, or Harry Potter movies before… even as recently as a year ago. I watched Lord of the Rings the other day and found it quite intriguing. I also might probably go see that new Star Trek Movie in 2009 thanks to the wonderful trailers of Noreaster. I saw parallels of things of God and think I might actually enjoy it. I think we all know that one person who can pull out a message about Jesus from anywhere… LOL Like this one awesome guy named Bret had this great evangelism talk from this utterly ridiculous youtube video called Charlie the Unicorn goes to Candy Mountain.

I digress… LOL anywho  I bring that up because I know am being able to see Jesus in everyday things and I think its awesome and a reflection of maturity and my relationship with God… And yet still not an indication that I’m OLD! 🙂

1 Corinthians 13:11-12

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

Oh yeah… and if you enjoyed that last video… how about Charlie the Unicorn Part 2
