You is kind, you is smart, you is important.

So I've kind of developed an angst toward movies:


  1. A feeling of deep anxiety or dread, typically an unfocused one about the human condition or the state of the world in general.
  2. A feeling of persistent worry about something trivial.
I believe this is an accurate description of the emotion I feel towards movies.  If I do watch them and am not worrying about annoying my fellow watchees, I can't help but yell at, talk to, cry for, etc. the characters in the movie.  I sometimes get so wrapped up in them, that it feels like my heart is ripped cut into strips with scissors...slowly.  Seriously (kind of-that's a HUGE ouch). 
My parents are familiar with my suspicion of movies.  I came home one day to the advice of them telling me, "Oh Ky, I think you're really going to like this movie!  I really think you are going to like it."  It was the movie, Tristin and Isolde.  Heart...breaker.  Oh my lanta, at several points the actions of the characters could have been adjusted so so much awfulness didn't have to happen!!  But no.  Tristin and Isolde broke my heart with its story.
It may have been several months later when my parents brought me their line again.  "Kyla, this is a movie you'll like.  You'll like this one!"  They may have even thrown in the line, "Trust me."  So I stumbled into the family room.  This movie was, Sommersby.  Heart...breaker.
Anyways, I decided that, well, I actually do like some movies.  And even though my heart painfully shatters when I watch movies like Tristin and Isolde or Sommersby, these are movies I truly enjoy.  Ha!  Now I've also recently watched the movies, Fried Green Tomatoes and The Help.  And both of these are great movies, too!  Maybe I kind of like it when my heart gets squished around.  And Mae Mobley, the little girl in The Help, is a button!  (Funny expression, isn't it?)

So, anywho, these are my "2 cents" regarding movies.  My computer screen looks like a wreck right now.  Many many windows up because I'm trying to make everything a priority, I suppose.  Hope to write again soon.  :-)

With the Intention of Coming Back

I shouldn't write extensively here.  One could argue I shouldn't be writing on here at all as just a computer window away are two unfinished papers.  However, I wanted to document, perhaps follow the distraction that I may be posting blogs more frequently in the upcoming months.

Remember how I had this perhaps over-dramatically dilemma about going back to University this Fall?  Well, with the Good Lord's help, I will succeed and finish these classes I am enrolled in and with the grace and love shown by my parents, I will not be enrolled in any classes for next semester.  Anyone else feel like flying?...and just to acknowledge more reactions than flying- anyone else ponder the parable of "The Prodigal Son"?  You know, I don't even know what the word, prodigal, means, but- hey now, I need to get back to work...

I just wanted to make a post because I really haven't in a couple months.  These past couple of months have been a fascinating and blessing-filled kind of crazy!  I have lived with eight other beautiful, interesting, funny, unique, and wonderful women this semester!!  Ha ha-they're nuts!  But--next semester, with God's help, will be a wonderful, awakening kind of semester not enrolled in college.  I think partaking in blog posts will be helpful for this journey.  We shall see.  (I'll have a stocked kitchen again--yippee!)

Okay, pray for the development and flow for my papers and school work!  :-)  Thanks!!!
