I read 35/50 books last year, so I'm attempting it again this year! :)
This year to make things even more fun, I'm also going to try to read a book corresponding with all of the 27 letters of the alphabet! :D

So, I'll be keeping track of them all! ^_^

Without further ado, here's to a good 2009 full of reading! :D

Hey everyone!

TGIF! =D

I've completed 4/50 books so far on my list -- I guess not bad for the new year :) I really wanna read more this year ^_^

I'm glad this weekend too, because unless Joan asks me, I won't be working Saturday, w0ot w0ot! :)
I've worked the past 3 Sat's, so it'll be nice having this one off, and I can do the Disney/Nick Skate again :D

And if some of you are gamers, you've gotta check out Fallout 3 -- it's an awesome game! :D
I've made 2 characters - one myself, who I be nice to most people in the game, and the other one: a total douchebag, who I gave blue hair too, and I do stuff for people, but I make her give 'em crap... LOL! It's funny sometimes to hear their responses to that stuff... :>

Anyway, how's everybody doing? I'll try to catch up on my friends page later :)

Have a great weekend, you all! :D

Hi everyone!

How was everyone's weekend? Good, I hope!
Mine went really great, my brother and I spent the weekend over at my sister's new house, and we had a great time. Stayed up super late, topping 5-6 am on night, LOL! Watching movies/tv shows til our hearts content =D, skating & shopping at Best Buy on Sat., and on the last day having a nice walk in her neighborhood, which the weather was really great for. :)

Well, I received the decline letter for a job at the EC Library I applied for, which was a full time position. It was kind of disappointing in one sense, as it was full time ... but at the same time I wasn't totally surprised, because I'd been having the feeling that I didn't get the job, and that's happened before with other applications/jobs, and it really hasn't been wrong before.

So... my mom thinks that I should keep trying when/if more jobs open up, which a lot haven't because of the economy and county overspending, they've put alot of jobs on hold. I'm just really grateful that I have a job :) -- But, I get tired of trying.. I know great things are worth fighting for...but I don't think God wants me in the library for the rest of my life, at least not as my only career. And I don't want it to be my career... So... sometimes I think, what if it's not part of God's plan for me to move up anymore in the library? What if I'm not to supposed to go full time with the library? I've tried and interviewed for different library positions 4-5 times, and they've never hired. That's why a part of me wonders if maybe, I'm supposed to be right @ NF Library, and not at another library.

It sometimes get's so complicated and a bit scary.... :/

I should've sent my writing out to Glimmer Train, but I missed their January deadline... so I have to get it in the next open submissions deadline. I feel it's important, it's scary and makes me nervous, but important. I really hope they will publish my short story ... it would mean more to me than the jobs. &hearts&

Went to Books-A-Million tonight, and picked up some great books! :)
I always keep my eyes open for suspense/thriller/horror books --- I LOVE those kinds!! :D
I bought:

"Isolation" by Travis Thrasher
"Search and Destroy" by Dean Hughes
"Allah's Fire - Task Force Valor #1" by Chuck Holton & Gayle Roper
"Dreamhouse Kings #1: House of Dark Shadows" by Robert Liparulo
"Code Talker" by Joseph Bruchac

I also recently bought a whole bunch of books from Goodwill, including "Peter Pan" & a beautiful illustrated copy of "Pride & Prejudice", you can find some really great books there! :)

Right now my parents are watching "Fire Proof" --- I'm hoping that they will see some of the similarities of the characters marriage in the film, in their own marriage... and it would be even COOLER if they took the Love Dare ... I really hope this film will speak to them :)

I love book shopping &hearts&

Love you all! =D

Well, I got to work today and all of the parking spaces were used up 'cause there was a test or something being given there.. So, I had to park in the park behind the library, and jog to the building :p
I was late, but I called and told my supervisor why, and he wasn't upset about it, so I'm glad that went well :)

As for the interview, well, one of the women who interviewed me told me that they had selected someone else for the job, but that she thought I did very good on the interview, and it was a tough choice. She encouraged me to apply for other positions... I've heard that before, and it doesn't do too much really :/

I'm kinda glad she told me though. It's almost better to know now, than to have to wait til the first week of Dec., which was when I was told I would hear something back.

So, that didn't work out... but I'll get over this, because God has something greater.
I prayed about this job, and like the first one, I prayed if God wanted to get this job, I would, if not, well....

I feel He wants me to be a writer, so I'm gonna throw all of my effort into writing and trying to get things published... I've got a few ideas I've been throwing around, so I'm gonna do my hardest to work on them :)

Thanks for the encouragement [info]makeitbacon on the job -- it really meant a lot to me! *huggles*

It's really nice and cold here in FL, and it's sooo nice! :D -- I've got the windows open and am loving the cold fresh air ^_^

Joy for Winter! :)
Love and Hugs,

{35} Holly Claus: The Christmas Princess - by Brittney Ryan, Laurel Long, and Jeffrey K. Bedrick
* This was a very fanciful and creative telling of Santa Claus' daughter, Holly. It involves a bit of romance, and some rescuing, and it's all good! :) ~ I can't wait to read the novel version, perhaps that will have even more romance and adventure :)

Ack, I missed the blog for yesterday :(
Geesh, that's bad blog day #2, and I couldn't even get one LOL :P

Well, today, I basically slept in til 1:30 pm LOL and when I did get up, I went grocery shopping with my mom, that;s cool :)
I went skating again today with my sis for the Rhythm and Retro night :D - They didn't play as many good songs but the highlights were "Dancing Queen" and "Funkytown", and they played this 80s song that I'd never heard before, but I liked it :)

Soo... the interview is tomorrow! I am SOOOOO nervous :$
If you guys wouldn't mind praying about it, I'd really appreciate it! I really want this job! :D

This is a short blog, but that's mostly all I have to say for now. :)

What's shakin' everyone?

I've made a resolution: I'm going to try to blog everyday :)
Long or short, sadly I've been neglecting my blog :(

The biggest thing going on right now, is a full-time position has opened up at the library! :D
I've applied for it, and I have an interview Monday, and I'm really nervous! I feel pretty confident, 'cause I know I can do the job, and I think I have a good shot at it (esp. if one of my co-workers doesn't try for it.)

Some of the biggest reasons right now that I want this job is the money. Not 'cause I'm greedy, but it will allow me to save easier and more for a car, to help pay off my brace payments (which are my biggest expense), and to make things a little easier. Also, I won't have to get 2 part-time jobs, which makes things much easier! :)

My brother is also going for a full-time library position, and I really hope he gets it! :) - He's excited about, and it would give him better benefits :)

I'm working on moving my hosting to HostGator, which so far, I'm really happy with! :D
I was using 1&1 hosting, but I wasn't able to run Coppermine & 4images to the full extent of the programs due to, I believe, memory limitations with their PHP, and with HostGator, so far I haven't had those problems, save for 1 picture :) - Also CPanel is much easier and allows for a lot more control than 1&1 :)
But if you ever get a web hosting site & domain, I don't recommend registering the domain with your hosting company, as it's kinda easy in the end to have them set up in separate places :)

I know I've been a bit absent in commenting some of your all's entries, but I have been reading them :)

I hope you all have a rockin' Sunday!! :D
*Huggles all around!* ^_^

And I got approved for 0% APR credit card so I can use for my braces if needed, yay! :D

I went to the Disney/Family skate today with my sis, Lauree, and we had a good time! They played so JoBros songs, and some good Disney/Nick stuff :D
I did a bit more tricks/dancing on my skates this time, and did better skating overall with them :)

Barack Obama & The Election [Oct. 29th, 2008|10:16 pm]
[Tags|, ]
[Current Location |living room]
[Current Mood | hopeful]

Alright, this is a key issue, and I'm going to address this.

The Election
Oh yes, Nov. 4th is fast approaching, and some have already voted, some have not.
I know of some people who like Barack Obama, some who don't.
I know some are under the assumption that Barack Obama is a "Christian". Well, I'm here to say he's NOT!

The Bible talks about knowing them by their fruits. What fruits has Obama showed us?
As a Christian, Obama shows me that he is very liberal.

1) He promotes abortion -- whether it be full-on or partial. Abortion is abortion. No questions.

2) And he supports homosexual marriages (per Christian Coalition of America -- link down below)

I would to include the excerpt from this website run by Todd Albertson. And, I'm not making this up, here's the link: http://www.toddalbertson.com/2008/08/15/is-barack-obama-a-christian/

Many of Obama’s beliefs show Christian immaturity. For example, he believes good people (like his grandmother) will be in Heaven regardless of whether they knew Christ or not. This is a nice thought but not good theology (except in some missiological situations which don’t apply here).

Additionally it doesn’t appear that Obama believes in the Trinity, which is one of the basic tenants of Christian thought. Although this is clearly wrong, a number of the early Church’s fathers didn’t either.

While he says he is a Christian (and I believe we need to accept that), Obama’s fruit can be categorized as the promotion of the “social gospel.” Consequently at best, he is a “baby” Christian and does not embrace a Christian worldview.


Last but not least, I can’t support Obama because of his strong belief and evangelization of partial birth abortion. When one can advocate it as strongly as he does, it raises some serious questions as to his views on other moral issues.

---end---

There's a few points that I disagree with on that website. Obama is using Christianity because he thinks it will get him into the White House.

Obama is not a Christian -- I strongly believe this.


And besides that, the "Reverand" Jeremiah Wright he hangs around with, is a fake. He's a racist, and promotes and says what God wouldn't want us to do.

Bottom Line: Are you a Christian? Are you voting for Obama? Reconsider your vote.
Obama is DECEIVING people!
Please... Please... please! Do your research before voting. I believe Obama is the wrong choice for America. I don't believe he has any loyalty to this country, nor to it's people. I don't believe he will make good or right choices for this Country, and I don't believe he's a Christian.

His name is Barack Hussein Obama -- if he were not a Muslim, wouldn't he want to change his name?

Here's an article, I'd like to include about Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham:

Stanley Ann Dunham,

Mercer Island High School

Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro (November 29, 1942 - November 7, 1995), known as Ann Dunham and Stanley Ann Dunham, was an American anthropologist, left-wing social activist, and the mother of Senator Barack Obama. She was born in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to Stanley and Madelyn Dunham. Her father (who gave his only child his name) was a furniture salesman in downtown Seattle, Washington, and her mother worked for a bank. After a year living in Seattle, her family moved to Mercer Island, Washington, in 1956 so that 13-year old Ann could attend the Mercer Island High School that had just opened. At the school she was on the debate team and graduated in 1960.

Her family moved to Hawaii and Ann attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where she studied anthropology. When Ann Dun ham arrived in Hawaii, she was a full fledged radical leftist and practitioner of "critical theory" She also began to engage in miscegenation (interracial rela ionships) as part of her attack on society. Susan Blake, one of her friends has stated she never dated "the crew-cut white boys," She had a world view, even as a young girl. It was embracing the different, rather than that ethnocentric thing of shunning the different. That was where her mind took her. In Hawaii she met Barack Obama, Sr. from Kenya in her Russian language class. Barack Obama, Jr. was born August 4, 1961.



Barack Obama, Sr. left Ann and their son in 1963 to attend Harvard in Boston. Press reports claim Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. were divorced around this time; however, no evidence has yet been presented to show they were ever married. The senior Obama obtained a masters degree in economics at Harvard and returned to Kenya in 1965 where he obtained a position in the Kenyan government. He was killed in an automobile accident in 1982.

Two years later, when her son was five, Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian oil manager and practicing Muslim whom she meet at the university. In 1967 they moved to Jakarta, Indonesia. While in Indonesia Ann got a job at the American embassy teaching English.

Barack's half-sister, Maya Soetoro was born in Indonesia. Ann, Obama and his sister Maya moved back to Hawaii. Ann Dunham soon returned toIndonesia with Maya but divorced Soetoro in the late 1970s.

Dunham traveled around the world, pursuing a career in rural development that took her to Ghana, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Nepal and Bangladesh. In 1986 Ann Dunham worked on a developmental project in Pakistan. Later that year Ann and her daughter traveled the Silk Road in China. In 1992 she earned a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Hawaii. Her dissertation, "Peasant blacksmithing in Indonesia: Surviving and Thriving Against All Odds," was 1067 pages long. She worked for the Ford Foundation and promoted Microlending.

During Obama's campaign for the 2008 presidential election he portrayed his mother as a conservative girl from Kansas; however in reality she was a radical leftist and cultural Marxist. She lived in the Seattle area; spending her teenage years in Seattle's coffee shops with other young radical leftist. Obama claims his mother's family were conservative Methodists or Baptists from Kansas. However his mother's parents were members of a left-wing Unitarian church near Seattle. The church located in Bellevue, Washington was knicknamed "the little red church," because of it's communist leanings.

The school Ann attended, Mercer Island High School, was a hotbed of pro-Marxist radical teachers. John Stenhouse, board member, told the House Un-American Activities Subcommittee that he had been a member of the Communist Party USA and this school has a number of Marxists on it's staff. Two teachers at this school, Val Foubert and Jim Wichterman, both Frankfurt School style Marxists, taught a critical theory curriculum to students which included rejection of societal norms, attacks on Christianity, the traditional family, and assigned readings by Karl Marx. The hallway between Foubert's and Wichterman classrooms was sometimes called "anarchy ally."

Dunham has been described by her friends as "a fellow traveler..." meaning a communist sympathizer.

In an interview, Barack Obama referred to his mother as "the dominant figure in my formative years... The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics."

Before she died Ann Dunham wanted to adopt a mixed-race Korean baby fathered by a Black American stationed in South Korea. Ann Dunham died in Hawaii in 1995 of ovarian cancer and uterine cancer.

-----
If Obama gets his "values" from his mother ... imagine his values.

----
Now I know, McCain is not perfect, and I disagree with his stance on abortion. But I wasn't even going to vote until Sarah Palin came into the picture. They haven't been able to bring up any dirt on her, except for the State Trooper incident, which is small stuff compared to some dirt. Sarah Palin is answer to all pro-life people's prayers! I feel she is legit, and I can see her in the White House, and we need someone championing for the rights of the unborn! And I think she is perfect for the job! She had a mentally challenged son, knowing beforehand of his condition - and still had him anyway. Isn't it terrible that 90% of mentally challenged children are aborted?
I cried when I found that out. I could never abort my child, despite the conditions of how it was conceived. (Yes, even rape.)

I'm done I think for now, I just had to blog about this. I've heard of some "Christians" who are voting for Obama -- please reconsider.

Check out the Christian Coalition of America: http://www.cc.org/

Focus on The Family - Focus Voter: http://www.focusvoter.com/

Please pray about this election. It's a very important decision and a right we have as American citizens.

---
Love,
Kelly ^_^

Howdy Hoe!

How are all my friends doing? I haven't been blogging in a while now, but I have been reading my friends entries, I haven't commented on all of them, but I have been keeping up with them :)

I feel almost like I have things to talk about, and yet nothing to talk about, LOL! :p

Right now I have a cold, but I'm feeling better today than I was yesterday, and thank God my sore throat is gone! :D -- That's kinda one of the worst parts of a cold, that and the cough, and thankfully the cough hasn't quite developed yet :)

Now let's go on to more interesting things, lOL! :)

I normally am not big on Halloween at all, but I'm actually looking forward to it this year! Simply for: dressing up! We get to wear costumes at the Library, and for this year, I'm gonna dress up as Snow White! I'm actually very excited about this :) I'm going to get a wig and everything, and I've never worn a wig, so I'm looking forward to doing something very different and cool :D ~ I'm hoping too, that some kids might realize I'm dressed up as a Disney Princess, and like that. I love kids, and I look forward to (hopefully) getting a good reaction from them, kids are adorable and they are sooo cute <3

Here's the costume, I want to get, and I'm going to Target today, to get it, since it says they have it there :) ~ http://www.amazon.com/Extreme-Halloween-Inc-White-Costume/dp/B0018P5LS2/ref=pd_sbs_a_6

And I'm going to get one of these wigs to go with it: Wig 1 | Wig 2

I'm not sure which wig to get, so if you want, I'd appreciate it if you let me know which one you like best :)

Also, I'm excited about this too, because Relient K & Toby Mac are coming to my area!! :D ~ Nov. 16 as part of the Winter Wonderslam tour, and I can't wait about that, because RK is finally coming to where I live! And TobyMac will be awesome to see live <3

And in Dec. my parents are going up North to visit my mom's parents for about 1 or 2 weeks, and I can't wait, 'cause it will be nice to have a small vacay and to have the house to ourselves :D - It will just be my sibs and I, and we are gonna par-tay like no end!! Haha, just kidding, I'm not a party person at all, unless it's a fun one with no alkie :)

I'm also working on some cross stitching projects, one of which, is for my Grandparents up North, so I'm hoping to have that done in time... but we'll see... I've barely even scratched the surface :p ~ It's a counted cross stitch which I now realize is harder than the stamped ones, lol! I've also got one, that I think my sister will like, so I want to try to finish that one for her too :D

Here's to a fun week and endless crazy fun and jokes! :D (and mayhaps pricked fingers from needles? lol!)

Til my next blog adventures ;)

[Current Music |Stranger Than You Dreamt - Phantom of The Opera OST]



Title: "Film Disaster Island"
Rating: PG-13
Category: Action/Adventure, Mystery/Suspense, Romance
Summary:Four actors (AJ Michalka, Drake Bell, Vanessa Hudgens & Zac Efron) are brought together to make an Adventure film, "Film Disaster Island", it becomes a disaster in more than one way. Stranded on an island in Jamaica, the four actors have to bond together. Attempting to get rescued, and trying to track down the mystery of the island, can the four actors survive the danger ... and each other?

WARNING! : This story is rated PG-13 due to some sexual content. It's nothing graphic, but with the way I make the one character, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up. I'm not condoning his behavior, but I'm using it for the storyline within.

Your Attention Span is Medium



Your attention span is just about average.

You may think that you have a short attention span...

But being distracted is something most people struggle with.



The most important thing is that you're aware that your mind wanders.

If you find yourself daydreaming, you can usually snap out of it.

It may be tough to concentrate at times, but you can do it... if you want to!
