My new love.

In the midst of not having true days off, i've been watching 30 Rock.

... and I love it.

But unfortunately the early episodes of Season 3 (and some of Season 2) are not findable.. and I'm wanting to watch it!

What's a girl to do.

Dear Work,

When I give you my heart:

Please do not criticize me for it. Will you take advantage of my time and my energy? Will I care too much? How can it not end in dejection if I do?


But if I keep my heart:

How will I motivate myself to do well? What will I be working for? Will there be any point at all?


-Your devoted friend, and enemy

Life in the Video Department

Yesterday was a good day. I spent most of my time putting together a last minute video for Youth Specialties. So, even though it was last minute, I think it's a short video for my friends in Boston...
This is what we do!


Enjoy!

What's God Upto?

"Waiting upon God is vital in order to see Him and receive a vision from Him. And the amount of time spent before Him is also critical, for our hearts are like a photographer's film--the longer exposed, the deeper the impression. For God's vision to be impressed on our hearts, we must sit in stillness at His feet for quite a long time. Remember, the troubled surface of a lake will not reflect an image."

"He will quiet you with His love"

"Be on your guard;
stand firm in the faith;
be courageous;
be strong.
Do everything in love."

1 Corinthians 16:13-14

National Singles Week

It's national singles week.
Odd.
I don't rightly care much about being single... Except in relation to work.
Being the only single one at work is getting old fast.
But being not single sounds so unappealing at present.


Some Notes from an article arguing the need for National Singles Week

11. We need it because single people who live solo can show us that living alone is not the same as feeling alone. They remind us of something that is too seldom acknowledged in a society that so celebrates the buzz of social life, something that people of all marital statuses can appreciate - that solitude can be sweet.
12. We need it because the de-stigmatizing of single life does not undermine marriage, it strengthens it. When single people can live their lives with all of the same respect, benefits, protections, and opportunities as people who are married, then those who want to marry are free. They can pursue marriage for the right reasons - not to run away from the stigma of being single, but to embrace the attractions of being married.
14. We need to value single people because that's what progressive nations do. They look for the people who have been marginalized and diminished, and invite them into the center of society. That way, we can all live happily ever after.

ASR

I thoroughly enjoyed our escapade to San Diego. Despite getting sick, and wearing myself out, I still had a fantastic time... which is saying something.

Unfortunately, all pictures are on other people's camera's.

But it was a weekend of good friends, good food, good conversation, and awesomeness. I'm a lucky girl. And all this for work.

Currently

I'm sitting at home. And I love it. I love my house. and I find that I hardly ever mind being alone. It's so comfortable and enjoyable to just relax. I have a home of my own. I'm a very very lucky girl.

This picture hardly even captures how lovely my home is.
