but who else do you know who can do this when she’s still in her pajamas?
(Actually, I’m not sure that’s something to be proud of.)
Compare to this (0:35-1:10):
this song is weird and kinky and breathy and I don’t like it,
but just wanted to include for the comparison
But once again, allow me to visually remind you
of the references I made in a brief 2 minutes:
that this guy gets more blog time than the rest of them.
And I KNOW Iago isn’t the greatest role model,
YOU. HAVE. BEEN. ADMONISHED.
(used the word “warn[ed]” already…and I DO follow the apostle Paul, anyways)
And I just got struck by lightening (which followed the thunderbolt of blasphemy, of course).
And I’m very, very sad now…
(by a TON, by the way)
PS. As of a few years ago, it is no longer prescription so it’s a lil’ cheaper. SAWEEEEEET! This song is what Allegra can say to my summer hay-fever.
PPS. ALLEGRA makes ALLERGIES happy (or unhappy, I guess)! WOW! Just noticed that. COOL!
I have never taken a marketing/business/graphics/photography class in my life (true story!), but I’m finding out that I know more than I thought. “You don’t know it all, but you know enough” is an idea that has been used by a prominent Mormon leader to describe sharing the gospel. However, I have also applied it to this blog. I am conscious of not wanting to annoy, spam, or resort to publicity stunts, but also am anxious to get my work out there (!) and wish to utilize social media to do so. And maybe I’ll never earn another cent, but this blog is still valuable, it’s still bringing me great opportunities and friendships, and is still very special.
I admit, I’ve made a few Facebook blunders with marketing. Again, I have a good head on my shoulders and haven’t sinned so badly that I would need to go confess to my WordPress Bishop (see what I did there?), but I have had 2-3 people (whom I know and who’s opinion I respect) tell me that I was a little too liberal in posting my blog on people’s walls. To those people, I’m sorry. But I gather that you aren’t angry with me, and that you understand. Also, I thank you for your input. The Lord chasteneth those whom he loveth (I just compared you to God, so you better keep reading my blog!).
Artists of every medium, level, and experience know the frustration of not having people read/listen to/watch/appreciate their work. So the fact that my story (or at least parts of it) has been seen and read all over the world is pretty remarkable! Thanks again, readers. However, I still know that my blog will never be as valuable to another person as it is to me. And that’s alright. But if I can express a commonly felt truth, expose an insecurity that may help someone else find confidence, clarify questions about God and religion, or just make you smile, that makes me happy.
So I have learned a TON already, but am excited to keep on learning more!
Come so far, but got so far to go!
Some blogs are TOO personal:
Some blogs aren’t personal enough:
But the blog of this girl right here?
The following poem is written by my friend Mackenzie. She is a good friend who likes to write poetry (obviously!), prepare for her upcoming LDS mission, and rock out in the car with me to Kelly Clarkson. This poem is a beautiful expression of her trials, but also her faith. I publish this with her permission.
I can’t do it any other way unless the Lord is on my side
In this small peep-hole my life seems like a long ride
I need to trust my faith when all else is failing me
Trying to envision just who God wants me to be
If in failing I lose all sense of self, I know God will be my spiritual wealth
I’m so many broken pieces learning to find my way
But with the Lord on my side, I can never go astray
I need to get my license, that broken piece chips my eye
So many unneedful crystal clear tears that I cry
I want to serve the Lord, that broken piece chips my aching heart
With my faith in all sorts of parts
How much longer will my confidence sink?
This life goes by in such a blink
I need to build up a light around me so that darkness cannot succeed
Christ’s light is what I thirst, it’s what I need
Wow! Nothing I could say would do this poem justice, so I’ll just let it speak for itself. Love you, Kenz!
