Andrew Steven: I Should Look Different... -
Worship has always existed. Before any of us were here, there was worship. Angels worship. Creation worships. Even the rocks cry out in worship. So it makes sense that worship was around long before we had invented a piano or an acoustic guitar. Before we had a cathedral with a pipe organ. So…

I didn’t make a new years resolution for 2012, because it is too well known from past experience that it simply isn’t going to happen—Whatever the “IT” may be. It’s not like a huge commitment issue, it’s just I don’t see why we can’t make big resolutions all the other days of the year. Which is why, on January 10th, (that’s today) I’m making a goal. I’ve had this goal in mind for quite a while and it’s simply this: Do the things I’m passionate about.
I love being healthy. I also love pretty much all kinds of food except pork, cauliflower, bananas, yogurt, melons, pineapples, and ripe mangos (sometimes). With that being said, I love to cook and I love to eat. My goal is not to go on a diet, but simply cook what I love cooking and eat the things that I love while at the same time staying healthy. I love to dance, so i’ll be doing that as part of my daily routine. :)
I love art. Painting, theater, and writing in particular. My goal this year is to immerse my self into all that stuff I love doing. I’ve made my very first painting for the year, I’m also in the middle of brainstorming the coming chapter of my novel and I’ve been doing research on screenwriting.
So many things to get done!

Dear ignored tumblr!
I am so sorry for not blogging like a billion ages ago! Life has been crazy, crazy for the last six or so months that time has literally gone out the window. I don’t know where it went! Here’s a quick catch up by month.
December 2010: I spent Christmas in Vegas with Alex and we got engaged!
January: I decided not to go back to Wheaton..too expensive, so I had no where to live.
February: I went to live with my Aunt and Uncle, but decided to apply to the Art Institute of Dallas to pursue my goal of interior design.
March: I moved to Dallas, ended up not going to school again through finances and the again had to place to live.
April: I found somewhere to live for a total of 2 1/2 months. I moved to Vegas again!
May: At this point I am still in Vegas (planning and planning away for the wedding.
June: Still in Vegas. Alex came at the end of June for the Wunderink family reunion. Which was a lot of fun. and hard work may I add….
July: Alex and I flew to Connecticut to plan the last minute wedding details. Basically like 80% of the wedding :D
August: We got MARRIED on the 8th! 8/8/11. There was also the honeymoon, roadtrip, and the final move to Longview, TX. If you don’t know where that is…don’t worry I had no clue this place existed before 2009.
September: Job searching…job searching…cooking…school….cooking….Alex’s birthday…school…
October: No school….cooking…job searching…so you see my life is quite boring.
November: Job searching…baby showers….cooking….job searching….no school…babysitting….being married…mmhmm.
That’s life at the moment!

Hahaha. this is hilarious!
You hold on to bitterness towards somebody that, you think you’ve got them sort of in a cage, like you’ve got them under your thumb. But really, they have you. You’re the one whose being controlled if you can’t forgive somebody. So, I just felt such a freedom when I’ve been able to forgive, even somebody who didn’t ask for my forgiveness. Like, when Jesus is on the cross he prays for the people who put him there, and they didn’t ask him to pray for them, and they didn’t say they were sorry. So I think to be able to forgive people who never said they were sorry, that’s really very freeing. And you never have to hold onto any anger, or resentment or desire for revenge. —
I love so many things about mewithoutYou.

it's just me.: heartmindspirit: TOP TEN MYTHS ABOUT INTROVERTS Myth #1 – Introverts... -
TOP TEN MYTHS ABOUT INTROVERTS
Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.
