Facebook friends are the most awkward "friendships" out there. I remember sixth grade old me friending everybody because that is what you do as an eleven-year-old, I guess. "Hello person that I've never talked to but I have seen in our middle school hallways...we are Facebook friends now...even though I have no intention of messaging … Continue reading My foolish high school self.
I made this promise with myself and well, the world, that I would be spiritually and physically fit by twenty-two. You may want to read that first for context purposes. But here's the spoiler, I was incredibly physically fit by the time of my birthday. My lowest weight was an accurate measurement of the frightening … Continue reading Hidden misfortune, humbling catastrophe.
Take this entry more like a reflection than a life lesson. Haha, I say "life lesson" as if I am knowledgeable and worthy of giving advice. Being brave enough to schedule a dentist appointment does not suddenly make you wise enough to give "adult advice", Kira! Gaahhhh! Where was I? Oh yeah! Take this post … Continue reading Remarkable beauty through my singleness.
I strongly hesitate as I type this. The awkward and uncalled for guilt and shame tells me not to share this. Here's the thing, 2020 was shockingly an amazing year for me. Now I write knowing that 2020 was horrendous, discouraging, excruciating, and unbearable to most. I write this acknowledging the pain, heartbreak, and despair … Continue reading 2020 might’ve been the best year so far.
Or in other words, here is a portion of my testimony and my mission. I created my blog in 2017 and I do not know why it has taken so long to write something like this. The more I contemplate the timing of this post, the more grateful I am that I waited this long. … Continue reading Where my heart, soul, and mind lie: who I am and what I am trying to do.
I firmly believe the nerdiest nerdy thing a Jesus-loving nerd could say is I love seeing the biblical narrative play out in everything. Movies, TV shows, books, and anything you think is far from the bible is not nearly as far as you think. Doctor Strange, Frankenstein, Les Misérables, Harry Potter are a few forms … Continue reading “You will never be satisfied.”
That's my Sunday. That's been my Sunday for the last three to four weeks now, but that all depends on when I decide to actually make this post public. It has not always landed on a Sunday but I try to fast for sixteen hours, one of the days of the week. I usually stop … Continue reading 16 Hours Without Food
"13 When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter is this: fear God and keep his commands, because this is for all humanity. 14 For God will bring every act to judgment, including every hidden thing, whether good or evil." Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Now, I know I started with a Bible verse, but my friend who does … Continue reading Following Commandments Have Never Been Easy.
Maybe this is mostly because I am enamored with logic, truth and reason. Maybe this is because I have been accused of being emotionless. Maybe it's the combination but I thoroughly dislike the "you do you" or "do what makes you happy" movement. Movement...is that what you would call it? Lifestyle, maybe? Regardless, I absolutely … Continue reading “Do What Makes You hAPpY”
Is that too long of a title? I don't know, probably, but you did click on it so it must have caught your eye enough to some regard. Anyway, in the midst of the quarantine, I worked at one of the Amazon warehouses for a little less than three months and if any of your … Continue reading I Spent the Summer Working at an Amazon Warehouse
