I hope you like it

So, I realize that I've been a bit of a "Debbie Downer" lately.


I would like to apologize.

On a much lighter note, I want to share with you some music. Isn't it amazing how much music can speaks to our souls? Man, I love it.

My absolute favorite artist in the world (literally), is Missy Higgins. She is an Australian artist that came on the scene down under a few years ago. I actually heard her for the first time on my plane ride to Australia in 2005. I was instantly hooked. Her first album is called "The Sound of White." Do you have a cd that you literally and truly love EVERY song on it? A hard treasure to find, this is mine. I love and hate how music can bring out so much emotion both good and bad, happy and sad. I recommend "Scar" and "10 Days" off of this record.

You may want to know what kind of music this is...well it's kind of an indie, folk, acoustic mix. Check out Missy Higgins on youtube or myspace.

Missy's newest album is called "On a Clear Night" and trust me, she doesn't disappoint. "Steer" is my favorite track on this disc.

I hope you enjoy her as much as I do. I'm ridiculously happy to announce, that just last week I found out that she is touring in the US and I GOT TICKETS. She'll be in Chicago in a few weeks and folks, I might just cry upon my first MH siting. lol

Wow. I think this might just be the most time and effort I've put into a post. Just think how great it could be if I knew people actually read this. ;) Enjoy the music...

Oh yea...

This one is a shout out to my fan...


Singleness is in the eye of the beholder?

Before I start my singles rant…check out my new blog: http://meganandkellyrock.blogspot.com. It’s a compilation of poems me and my girl Kelly write back and forth to each other when we probably should be working. Please don’t think that we think we are actually poets. Haha…

NOW, on to the rant….

In the past I’ve always pretended that Valentines Day didn’t bother me. I was fine with being single and didn’t even notice the excessive amounts of pink and red.

So this past Thursday, I had no date. Sad, I know. So I decided to go to the mall and shop away my sorrows…by myself. I couldn’t help but feel like everyone there was judging the girl who was all by herself at the mall on V-day. *sigh*

Then, just when I think I’m in the clear Pastor decides to preach yesterday on the joy of singleness. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Tell me how can one get a whole sermon off of 2 or 3 verses that Paul tries to convince everyone that it’s cool to be single? Where else in the Bible, what other book, what other person talks about the beauty of singleness? Sorry, I’m not amused or convinced. Yea yea, Jesus was single and so were a lot of others, but they definitely weren’t preaching against the other option (marriage).

Another thing that really yanks my chain, is that days after Valentines Day, tv commercials, pastors and people in general are still talking about it. Get over it people.

On top of all that, my mother has the nerve to get on the phone last night and tell me how badly she wants grandchildren. Can I find a freakin’ man first? Geez. Talk about pressure.

You know, in the secular world its normal to be single and embrace it, love it even, until your almost 30. In this joyous Christian society, if your 24 almost 25, it’s like your eggs are gonna freakin’ rot or something. Thanks Jesus freaks, for making me feel like a big loser.

The sad part is that if I wasn’t surrounded on a daily basis with married and pregnant people, it seriously wouldn’t bother me, but lately I feel like I’m saturated with it and I don’t love it.

I’m really not bitter, I promise. ;)

I really can't stand it when people offer me the mundane "Hey! How are you doing today?" but at the same time, I can't seem to stop doing it myself. It's like word vomit that I have no control over.

They don't really care, I don't really care-we're not fooling anyone, so why pretend?

I mean seriously, what are the chances that everyone is as "good" as they say they are EVERY time I see them? Not likely.

From now on I'm going to be "superfantastic."

Little Perks of Being a Christian

As a Christian, I choose to surround myself with those with similar beliefs. With that being said, one of the perks of being a Christian and having other Christians in your life is that when you don't even know it, someone is praying for you. There are times in our lives where we feel completely alone and frusturated with our situations and then someone will come up to us and say "hey, I'm praying for you." Those simple little words and that simple little act can make all the difference.

Now I'm not saying that this happens all the time, but when it does, it feels like a little reminder from God that we aren't all alone and there are others that care.

This happened to me the other day at work from a lady that I've talked to maybe 2 other times. But during one of those convos I shared with her something (not that serious) that was going on in my life and when I saw her at work yesterday she asked me how it was going and told me she had been praying about it. Wow. I was completely taken back by this Christian gesture.

It's kinda sad that I was so surprised by this b/c I think that sometimes we forget that its our duty as Christians to pray and uplift our fellow brothers and sisters. It's so easy to get caught up in our own problems and lives that "I" and "me" end up being the only topic during our prayer time.

I challenge you to remember convos you have with people, pray for them and every once in a while tell them you're praying for their situation. You have know idea what those few little words can do for the soul.

ahhhh yes, the perks of being a Christian. lol
