More than just kinda, actually.
IT. IS. HUGE.
If you yourself are unkind to anyone in any way at all,
(don’t love this song, just KINDA like it…)
but I am going to be kind and include it since it clearly relates!
and Professor Wilkinson is up to the task!
And Jess, notice that I took your animal prints example
so that you felt a bit more on my level.
(although it’s painfully clear who the English teacher is here…)
and now, smiley student, let me show you how it’s really done:
1) Avoid blatant self-contradictions (unless there is a highly specified purpose)
2) Avoid using the same word twice within such a short time-span.
3) Be ever so cautious about your level of commitment/definition when expressing surety/doubt.
4) Wear a shirt that covers your stomach.
5) Katherine loves aviator sunglasses…
*Oh, I would like to reiterate that surprisingly I do enjoy Ms. Simpson’s song. Perhaps even more than this guy’s:
Last thoughts for this post
(and actually the most important one too!):
Jessica, your (future) children REALLY deserve for you to be married to their father.
Hozabout you get on that one?
Sooner than later, please.
Not meaning to judge or be unkind
Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony…
dear readers, I HIGHLY recommend clicking on the above link and reading this.
It is an incredibly awesome document!
Oh, and this is hardly the first post in which I’ve exposed grammatical errors in ubiquitous pop songs.
Carly Rae Jeppson needed a little help not too long ago.
so don’t add any more to it, okay pumpkin?
Thanks so much.
(Read here about John GREATLY inspired me in writing this)
but only because I choose to have responsibilities.
I believe in accepting legitimate criticism and also in getting out of my comfort zone, but if anyone ever tries to force or pressure me into anything in a manner or form with which I am not comfortable in any way at all…
figuratively AND literally…
But as is always the case, I am kind and civil about this. Ain’t no James Dean, “rebel without a cause” thing going on here. This is NOT me being selfish or evading (legitimate) responsibility in any way at all.
I desire to work hard and stretch myself to serve others.
Still though. The number 1 person on my list is ME!
and for that I will NEVER apologize…
1) What responsibilities do you choose to have?
2) What is your LINE OF PROPRIETY when it comes to responsibility?
“I don’t answer to ANYBODY. And it’s a lovely, LOVELY feeling…”
Just watch it, okay? 🙂
(and don’t say you don’t have 10 minutes; You ARE reading this blog, after all!)
In April 2012 I attended a seminar put on by the Sociology department at BYU concerning these same issues. It wasn’t about marriage/ legal stuff at all. It was just about what it is like to be gay/ lesbian/ bisexual, but still abide by the laws of God and the precepts of the Honor Code.
There is LOTS to say about the seminar, and I hate to try to “sum up” an event that was very complex, very classy, and very important. But for now I’ll simply express that I was incredibly inspired by the bravery of not only the 4 panel members (who each told his/her individual story with honesty, tact, and vulnerability), but also by everyone who in any way experiences same-gender attraction, particularly if they choose to abide by the standards of the LDS Church.
God loves you.
I do too.
I won’t hate you,
but I DEFINITELY won’t date you.
Read more here about why being kind is so important to me.
“Kindness begins with me.”
Go listen to Natasha’s song that I mentioned (I have done my own version and might include it some day)
Then rejuvenate your cells with some nice shut-eye (SLEEP!).
And now I’m about to say something that
I often wish I could
shout fiddle from the rooftops.
Are you listening?
Okay, here I go:
“I DON’T ANSWER TO ANYBODY,
AND IT’S A LOVELY, LOVELY FEELING!”
There are of course limits to this philosophy, because I do represent Christ,
I believe that women can be sexy,
but also ought to maintain class and (line of) propriety,
and also I am a role model.
But still “I do what I want!”
Katherine, get back to John Mayer…
Read more here about the concert that LITERALLY(!) changed my life…
(more to come on Johnny’s brilliant monologue/idea)
And now Lightn’ing strikes for that thunderbolt of blasphemy
for comparing myself to one of the greatest guitarists/poets of all time…
But allow me to quote from him once again:
“I LOOK GOOD CUZ I FEEL GOOD!”
4 John Mayer lyrics/links/quotations in one post. Excellent job, sweet self…
Oh, yah, not only do KW and JM share fashion blunders, we also share writing blunders. Check it out here.
PS. Even if your outfits are occasionally a little whacky, you can still be as cool as me.
“It’s true. It’s true. I choose you! (says Sara Bareilles).
To have an awesome day!
Go fall in love.
Go change the world.
Go help an old lady move.
Go help her carry her groceries.
Go clean your car, (that’s what I need to do).
I need to go do my hair, and a few other things…
I. Choose. You.
I got a way with words, people. And when necessary, I’m not afraid to turn up the charm, bat my pretty (fake) lashes, and use those words TO GET WHAT I WANT. But sometimes, people see what I’m doing and call me out on it. “Now you’re just stroking my ego,” they’ve said before. Well, just one question:
IS IT WORKING?
P.S. I do use words to get my way, but I’m smart and careful about it too. And even though words can be a tool, Katherine is NOT. My words can convince and persuade, but that doesn’t mean they are phony or fake. These words are my own; they’re from my heart.
No one should be unkind to you, but if ever anyone is,
remember that it’s probably not about you….
It’s their own shizzle.
And although funny in theory, I would NOT recommend making those kind of people a special pie. Line of propriety.
But do stand up for yourself, know what I mean?
We hate ourselves sometimes in the voice of other people….
but I disregard all of it and assume that I am loved the world ’round.
Thunderbolt of blasphemy yet again…
Also, BRILLIANT BOOKENDING (of JM’s quote) is what I did here…
blog to self-connection:
READERS! How do YOU react when people are unkind to you?
Also, if you are yourself unkind to people in any way at all, take a tip from my friend President Uchtdorf…
but also in kindness and tact.
This blog is something special to me, yes it is.
“More than I hoped for, more than I dreamed of”
(love it even though it ends with prepositions)
Colbie girl, you are beautiful, talented, seem very kind, and are not sleezy or a sell-out. I wanna do music with ya, ok? Dead serious 🙂
Boys, you better be awesome for me to hang out with instead of deepening my relationship with this blog. Just sayin’
that it was always just a cop-out for faith/religious committment.
I do not think that anymore.
Still LDS 🙂
Accompanied by his lady friend Katy Perry, John Mayer bought a guitar for a teenage girl in a music shop, then left without telling her.
#He’s sincerely trying to change. Wish I could give him a Book of Mormon. Dead serious.
#Katy is pretty. She is.
#Hey John, I blog about you quite a bit. A ton, actually. Maybe wanna buy me a guitar? Or better yet, do some music with me? Dead serious.
#I’m a fan of wayfarers. Put those bad boys on.
