I Am...

I actually had to write an "I Am" poem for one of my summer classes and decided to share with you all.. If you are interested in writing your own I am poem (which I of course encourage everyone to do) here is a website for the format..

I Am

I am a caring, fun-loving woman of God.
I wonder what my life has in store for me.
I hear emotions that are never said.
I see the inner beauty of all around me.
I want to always be my vert best.
I am a caring, fun-loving woman of God.

I pretend that I'm invincible.
I feel the pressure of perfection from the world.
I touch the lives of children.
I worry that I will disappoint the ones I love.
I cry for the lost and searching.
I am a caring, fun-loving woman of God.

I understand that hard work is the key to success.
I say everything happens for a reason.
I dream of a day with no suffering or pain.
I try to dance like noone's watching, love like I'll never be hurt, and live like there's no tomorrow.
I hope to make a difference with all I encounter.
I am a caring, fun-loving woman of God.

Haiku Time!

End of School Year Haiku
The school year's ending.
We must say goodbye to friends.
I'm left here alone.
But Summer is here.
And time to get up and leave.
Until Fall arrives.

Listen To Teacher

The other night one of my good friends and I were talking and he asked me what God had taught me lately.. I stood there staring at him with confusion and awe. That question really caught me off guard that particular night. After giving him a blank look and some kind of rushed answer I really started to think about it. What had God taught me lately? Thinking about it, I had no idea. My first conclusion was that God hadn't taught me anything recently, but that just didn't seem like God. Then I started wondering, well maybe at the point of time I didn't need to learn anything from God, but we all know that's a joke. But then the solution really hit me as much as I didn't want to believe it; I wasn't listening and paying attention to God to teach me anything.

As a future teacher, I know how hard it is to teach students who aren't listening and frankly don't care to learn. They simply think life is fine the way it is and what's the point of learning anything new. They become satisfied with just mediocre and average. Well after being asked this question one Wednesday night, I soon realized that I was one of my own dreaded students and God was the frustrated teacher. God is constantly speaking with me, helping me, and teaching me so much throughout life, but I'm too ignorant and stubborn to pay attention. I often feel "satisfied" with what I already know and find it useless to learn more. How foolish is that? I really am trying to rid myself from that mediocre mindset and strive for excellence. Every day I still struggle with listening to the Teacher, but if I take that time I sure learn alot and He is sure eager to teach me!

Hola, fellow bloggers!! So I have been MIA for a few months now... Ooops my bad! Don't get me wrong I've logged in several times and attempted to write several different blogs, but it's just been very unsuccessful. Being a RA, college student, and now a recent girlfriend I just can't seem to make time for blogging.. Tisk Tisk.. I know. Even now I have no idea what to write, but decided to write something to let you all know that I am NOT dead! And in the future, an amazing piece from me will be published.. I hope. :P But that's all I have.. Ta ta for now!! :)
