Sneaking a Word In

So technically I'm not supposed to be sitting here in the computor room..yeah, I'm supposed to be study my vocab and then my physics for the test tomorrow, but the itch wouldn't leave me. I know. *slapsface* Bad Ari! Oh well, I'll do pennance with extra hard studying. Besides, I've been trying to blog a little bit every day, so I don't get into the habit of just disappearing for days on end.
Anywho. My news for today? Actually it's yesterday's news (literally) because yesterday my youth group went to an arcade and I played my very first round of laser tag..ever. It was pretty fun..I kept getting deactivated, but I didn't really was just alot of fun to be with my friends. I wish had taken pictures, but then again, not every post has to be full of pictures, right? The arcade had a roller rink too, which looked like loads of fun, there were a couple guys there who were SO skating backwards and really fast and showing off their mad was pretty awesome to watch. Usually an arcade is not an environment I enjoy that I enjoy, too dark and noisy and full of guys who look like they are about to mug you or worse.
But surrounded by my friends I had an awesome time, We actually had kind of a dance party in the laser tag room, because there was this really loud catchy music playing, and the guys thought it was totally awesome that their white tshirts glowed in the dark, so they went nuts. People's teeth were glowing too..which was kind of wierd. Maybe we all just have really white teeth!
Afterwards we went to TCBY for froyo and that was pretty fun, if people hadn't kept looking at like we were crazy. I mean, it's not like we had painted ourselves blue, were just a bunch of teenagers who want ice cream for crying out loud! Anyway, I was a bit miffed about that. Do you girls ever find yourselves being treated differently, and you don't really know why? It kind of sucks, but I just hope it's because they see Jesus in us.

Another thing I wanted to share with you guys is I can honestly, truly, and completely say I am totally content with being single now. I don't know when the change happened, I used to just tear myself up about this one guy...but then I realized, it's just not worth it. I'm a junior in highschool. I have so much ahead of me. So many things God needs to teach me. Do I really need a boyfriend? The answer is a resounding--NO.
I'm just so happy that I have good guyfriends in my life, some are just goofy, but some are really my brothers and I can confide in them, and i wouldn't give that up for the world. It would definitely be boring with no guys at all...but I don't need a boyfriend. I've seen first hand how distracting guys can be, and how they can so easily just turn around and break your heart, and I don't need that. Maybe some of you guys have boyfriends. Maybe God has led you into that relationship, and if he has, that's awesome. Just make sure that guy doesn't obscure your view of God. That has happened to me more than once, and I'm not proud of it. I know now it is so much more satisfying to place and KEEP God first in my life. But if you don't think God would be pleased with your relationship, please, I beg of you, get out of it. I have so many friends just have their hearts ripped to shreds, or end up compromising themselves because they weren't dating a godly guy, or God wasn't leading the relationship. Make it a commitment to put God first, especially in your relationship, and you will never regret it.
That's my thought for today :)
All my love and God's blessings,


  1. Laser tag? Never tried it. My brothers love it of course - I'm too ignorant to even figure out how it works. ;)

  2. Yeah, it's just basically kids running around in the dark and shooting each other...and running into walls. :P
