Teddy Bear.

She is seven years old. She loves me more than anything in the world. I make her tears stop when she hugs me. I comfort her, and I am well-loved. She plays with me every day, and sleeps with me every night. When her parents ground her, or her other friends make her mad, I'm always here.
She is ten years old. She doesn't play with me every day like she used to, but I am still well-loved. I only have one eye left to prove it. I know that I'll still spend every night with her. And still I know that she needs me; I'm the most loyal friend she has.
She is sixteen years old. I've been demoted to the floor. I hardly ever see her anymore. She's never in her room, and when she is she chats away the night with her more important friends online. It is a very rare occasion that she holds me for comfort. I know I am still loved, in some part of her teenage heart, but I don't feel it like I used to. I am a stuffed bear, and not as important as the friends she can talk to and relate to.
She...what?! lt's her, but it can't be! She's...she's seven years old again! It's not her, I know it's not her, but it's close enough. This little reincarnation looks exactly like her. And I am back to being her favorite friend again.

Adrenaline Rush.

I feel my heart pumping in my chest. It's racing. I'm out of breath, and I love it. It means I'm alive...and I don't just know I'm alive. I feel alive too. (There is a difference.)

The adrenaline makes me feel like a big bucket of cold water has suddenly been dumped on my head. Adrenaline is now like a drug to me, because I'm definitely addicted.

This is the way I want to feel every moment, every second. There isn't a better feeling in the world. It's never going to go away, this feeling, because I will hold onto it tight for the rest of my life. That's all that it takes. It's the way you feel. It's the feeling I get when I turn around and see your face.

My Bright Green Chucks.

Hello, I just wanted to share a poem with you I had to write for English. We had to write an imagist poem. If you do not know what that is, it is a poem that is extremely short, and it's supposed to create a good mental image in your mind. You are supposed to use as few words as possible, and you are not supposed to use many adjectives. The poem I wrote is about my Converse shoes. :) So, here it is:

My Bright Green Chucks

They get me to where I need to go ---

through wind, rain, and snow.

They mean so much to me; my bright green Chucks.

You...and You Alone.

"The only thing you need is me," he says. "I'll make you happy; I'll be everything you'll ever need or want." "Okay," she hesitantly gives in. She wants to trust him, but part of her still doesn't. She can't. How can she trust him when so many others have let her down? She knows she has to trust someone eventually, but is it time yet? Is it time to let her guard down?

Well, let's do this. And so what if it doesn't work out? Then at least she can say she tried.

Will she succeed or fail? Come out with flying colors, or drop out of the race? You want to know who it is really up to? It's up to you...and you alone.

Time Does Pass.

"Time Passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me." -Bella Swan. (From the book, New Moon by Stephenie Meyer.)

The quote above is from a book series that is becoming increasingly popular, as more and more people read it. It is from the book New Moon, and is the second book in the Twilight saga.

I have loved the quote since the first time I read it. You cannot totally understand it unless you have read the books, but the part I love about the quote is that it shows no matter what may happen to you, time passes. Bella (the character in the book) goes through a very painful time, and the pain stays for awhile, but the world continues on. Her life did not end because of the painful occurrence she went through.

As days go by, the pain will cease. Even if the pain does not get better from day to day, there will be better times eventually; that's why you have to wait it all out. If you don't give up, there will happier times ahead of you!

This quote is so dynamic. You can look to it for comfort in so many situations. Whether you have recently been through a break up with your significant other, lost a close family member or friend, or been through any number of traumatic or disappointing situations, this quote provides comfort. It tells that time passes. If there is nothing else to look forward to, you can look forward to time passing, no matter what.

Let's Make the Year 2009 a Divine One... [Happy New Year!!!]

Well, well, well. 2008 was quite the year. I loved, laughed, lost, but most of all lived. It was a year of change for me, but I guess that is probably what everyone else is thinking too isn't it? Have you noticed how many people talk about how much their life has changed this year? Of course, it's not abnormal. Things change every day not just every year.

2008 was a great year, but I am looking forward to 2009 being an even better year! I am coming into it with optimism, and very much hoping it will be amazing! I hope I can strengthen my relationship with God, become closer to friends, make new friends, better myself, and find out more about myself.

I hope I can impact people's lives. I know that many people have impacted mine, and I want to give back. I hope that I get the chance to this year.

Overall, 2008 was a fabulous year. It was swell, hunky-dory, and just plain AMAZING!!! So tell me, did you have a good 2008? Please, respond...I'd love to hear about your 2008! Just the same, I wish you a great 2009! Let's all make sure we make the year 2009 a divine one... :)
Happy new year everyone!
