One of my preschool students picked up my staff id badge yesterday and said “this doesn’t look like you.” And that’s basically why I’ve never been a fan of studio portraits. If a four year has issues with a picture, certainly someone with years worth on photography experience would have issues.

I liked this album when it was first released, but since then I have aged and grown as a person so much. I understand and love this record on a different level now.

Today is the only day this week that I don’t have something to do after work and I am positively dreading that. So far, I’ve stayed busy so I’m not wallowing in self-pity and it’s helped immensely.

The roomie got in a new amp today so now there’s a ton of bubble wrap in the house! Bubble wrap makes me feel like a child. It’s rad.

Aaron Gillespie - Some Will Seek Forgiveness, Others Escape (Acoustic)

So this has pretty much been my theme song this past week! Man, this hit my heart region so hard!

"I heard a voice through the discord
Of a deluge of passersby.
I saw one gaze frozen in time
Watching me passing by.

I swear I’ll know your face in the crowd,
And I’ll hear your voice so loud
When you’re whispering…

Hey unfaithful I will teach you
To be stronger, to be stronger.
Hey ungraceful I will teach you
To forgive one another.

Here’s my kiss to betray
Desperate to brush the lips of grace.
Do you feel hollow when you think of how I’ve lied?

Oh sweet angel of mercy with your grace like the morning
Wrap your loving arms around me.
Oh sweet angel of mercy with your grace like the morning
Wrap your loving arms around me.

Hey unfaithful I will teach you
To be stronger, to be stronger.
Hey ungraceful I will teach you
To forgive one another.
Hey unfaithful I will teach you
To be stronger, to be stronger.
Hey unloving, I will love you,
I will love you, I will love you.

Hey unloving.
I will love you.
Jesus I’m ready to come home.”

the best part about being in your 20’s is slowly caring less and less about what people think of you and surrounding yourself with good people

the worst is that I’m broke

Lately, I haven’t wanted to be alone with my own thoughts so I’ve been filling the silence with music and prayers. It’s hard, but I think I’m better off for it. I’ve been distant from the music I love for awhile, but I’ve quickly rediscovered why I clung to it so hard for so long: my dark thoughts and life issues aren’t so unique. I’m glad I have a slew of old familiar albums to run to for comfort. Oh, Jesus is super duper at that too.
