Hearing your favorite band on the radio:




No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

(Dead Poets Society, 1989)

Forgot I Drafted This Thursday Night — Oops

I had the number 3 part at the meeting tonight. (Thursday) The one about Abner- Live By the Sword Perish by the Sword. Lemme tell you something- I thought these Insight book talks would be so much fun, but they’re really hard guys! I do enjoy them, but this one was such a difficult talk to write. I finally wrote from the setting of speaking with an advanced Bible student. She had an issue where her husband wants to purchase a gun for the home for protection. It took a lot of tears but with Jehovah’s help I pulled through.

Also, I’ve been trying and practicing wearing makeup. Yes, that must sound a little crazy and a little silly. I, a grown 24 year old woman, have been “practicing” with putting on makeup. I don’t like the feel of it generally. Anyways, tonight was one of the first times I’ve gone to the meeting with a completely done up face (ie, concealer, foundation, eyeliner, mascara, some color for my cheeks, and lipstick) and I had lots of friends coming up to compliment me on my talk when all of a sudden the sisters would just stop, stare at me, and then say “Are you wearing makeup?!?” One of my friends high-fived my sister and said “Can you believe she’s actually wearing makeup?”

I can’t even lie, it was nice to have so many sisters notice that I had put on makeup. In my congregation, everyone says that they tell me and my sister apart by who wears makeup and dresses “fashion forward”. That’s one of the terms they’ve used. I’m also the only one who wears glasses frequently. To me that would seem a defining physical feature but it seems to slip others minds frequently. That’s never bothered me, until recently. So I guess the makeup isn’t so much growing up as it is… well, I don’t know what it is. What I do know is that I need to figure out how to hide the dark circles under my eyes. I am practically shellacking the concealer on, but it doesn’t cover them.
