spring freeeeee for alllllll!

March 31st, 2006

it’s been so long since i REMEMBERED that it was a free for all friday! so guess what?! HAPPY FREE FOR ALL FRIDAY… post on my blog. πŸ™‚

here’s the info:

free for all friday is a day where i have YOU post on my journal instead of me. (and don’t think you can get out of participating in this if you “have nothing to say”… since that never stops me from posting random stuff of no real value on my blog. heh)

i’ll give you a suggested topic, but you have the freedom to post about anything.

now. if you have a login name and password (in order to post comments on my page), you can log in with that info. if you do not have a login name and password already, log in with…
usename: guest
password: freeforall

click on “write” (on the left hand side)… create a post… and click “publish”

sidenote if you are one of my friends reading this on xanga or lj, you will have to log in to my blog on to do this.

ok. now here’s the suggested topic. spring/summer: so.. the weather is warming up… what are your plans for this spring/summer? or what is your favorite part of spring/summer?

ready.. set.. GO!

edit i’m leaving my ‘free for all’ open on friday AND saturday.. so post away… i’m busy all of tomorrow so make my page fun and interesting for when i get back to my computer πŸ˜›

The Five Love Languages

My primary love language is probably
Physical Touch
with a secondary love language being
Quality Time.

Complete set of results

Physical Touch: Β  11
Quality Time: Β  7
Words of Affirmation: Β  6
Receiving Gifts: 4
Acts of Service: 2


Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don’t understand our partner’s requirements, or even our own. We all have a “love tank” that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

Take the quiz

i think everyone needs to take this quiz!

*edit* so i didn’t realize that something got messed up in my code before.. weird x-posting bizness i’m guessin’.

ok. so i’m gonna post quick while i’m waiting for photoshop to finish “applying shape blur”

the past couple of days have been very frustrating for me. sometimes i’m not even sure why i’m frustrated or down… like it’s the weather or something. but it’s not. i saw a robin on my front lawn today… the sun has been showing through the clouds lately… and it only just recently got cold again… *shrugs* what gives?

oh and since it has been such a long time since i posted… i have to share. last weekend i got to play on the worship team at elmbrook church. it was SO cool to play in ‘big church’… and such an honor to be playing with some of the most amazing musicians! i’m so thankful for God’s gift of music… i found myself just listening to my in-ear monitor… thinking.. “wow.. it’s better than a cd… and i’m on stage with these people. wow.”

then after that amazing highlight of sunday morning.. i went to work. yes. on sunday night. i had to get a lot of work done on the april newsletter for work. and what was more frustrating than being at work from 3-9:30pm on a sunday night? the fact that i still didn’t get everything done.

monday rolls around… and guess what.. still no finished newsletter. (now mind you.. it’s not all me.. it was just a combination of things) and then later, feeling let down.. yet again.

this morning rolls around. i wake up to an extremely cold room… so now my throat hurts. i eat some leftover chinese food for breakfast… and am excited to get to work early to finally finish this stinkin newsletter… and… where’s my keys? i *KNOW* i left them hanging up last night.. because my car was the last one in the driveway.. and i was parking everyone else in. so i know i left my keys hanging by the door. my car was moved.. so yes.. my keys were hanging up there this morning when someone moved my car to get their car out of the driveway… but.. where are my keys? i need to get to work!

so luckily sam (jenn’s boyfriend.. who lives in minnesota but is visiting for the week) was able to give me a ride to work. i feel so out of control with no keys for my car.. my apartment… or my work.

alright. photoshop is finally finished blurring that image i was working on. so i must get back to work on this thing. this will be a great stress out of my life once this gets sent to the printer.

i need a hug. i’ve needed a hug since sunday. *sigh* why do i go from so high emotionally… to such a low? i hate that part of me. that can’t be normal.

i’ll post again soon.. cuz i left out a lot of really great things that have happened in my life as of late. plus i have really awesome pictures from friday night up at wisconsin dells. πŸ™‚

not just one… not two.. not even three….

March 10th, 2006

but SIX interesting/weird things about me. i know.. you are all way too excited.. i’m gonna have to have you all calm down first.


ok. so here’s the deal-e-o. i’ve been tagged… and once you’ve been tagged, you have to write a blog with “6 weird things/habits about yourself”.

in the end you need to choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names.
don’t forget to leave a comment that says “you are tagged” in their comments and tell them to read yours.

ok. without further ado…

1:: i don’t know when i developed my (almost) hate of capital letters… but i have actually gone through and uncorrected capitalization when typing something in word. i mean.. if it’s an official document or something similar… i will suck it up.. but it still hurts my eyes… almost as much as comic sans. (no offense.. but that’s the worst font ever created. i really want to get one of these t-shirts. )

2:: i’m a germ freak. it’s to the point where i have worn a sweatshirt just so i could open up doors with my sleeve… i know.. it’s sad.

3:: i’m the ‘bop-it extreme’ champion of my family. 99. beat that

4:: more than several times.. i forget that real life != digital life (sorry.. that was nerdy… i should explain that != means “not equal to” in some programming languages.) it’s becoming more and more common where i attempt do do keyboard shortcuts to a) find my keys b) find a word in a written document (on paper mind you) c) undo something or d) all of the above. *shakes head* i need a non digital life.

5:: i need to be surrounded by my friends.. or at least pictures of my friends. you should see my room. i like to decorate with pictures… and.. well.. rubber chickens and mannequin heads.. but that’s besides the point. i love my friends.

6:: i’m a sentimental mush ball. i keep every cutsey and corny thing that anyone has ever given me… made for me… etc. you should see my room. i also can’t throw anything away. oh. and i love sticky notes.

*shrugs* i guess that’s all the weird things you’re gonna get. i’m tired.

i’m tagging yous: ry, sas, korb, jenn, matt, kristen.. and.. YOU. (yea you.. don’t think i didn’t see you hiding over there… )
