The Far Far Horizon

“Here Nanny had taken the biggest thing God ever made, the horizon- for no mater how far a person can go the horizon is still way beyond you…” – A snippet from my current read Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurtson

While reading a book there are always a couple pages that have a line or passage that strikes you at the exact moment you needed it to. This quote was that for me. It’s interesting because I’m still not sure in what way I needed it, but I feel it was important. There isn’t a specific situation going on where I was able to apply it to anything relevant, but again, it felt right. So  I began to analyze it.

I’ll stay away from the actual plot of the book and just stick to this quote because I don’t know the first thing about quality book reviews. But I also don’t really know the first thing about blogs and here I am. Anyways, the point I’m trying to make- well I’m not even sure what it is. By that, I mean I’m not sure which of the many meanings I gave this quote, is the one I actually believe. I love that. I love the power books have to make me think in a away that I don’t understand.

So really back to the quote, it basically was a big “This life is all you want it to be- and more” to me. No matter how far I go in life, there will always be more that God can offer me. Wonderful and plentiful things that I cannot imagine. It made me think that I have a really really small plan for my life. Maybe that’s why I shouldn’t be making plans for my life because if I have it my way, I’ll only ever reach the limits of my human mind, and I want more than that. I want all that He can bless me with. After all, it is He who knows the ins and outs of this crazy beautiful world. Why not let the expert show me how its done?

It’s Not Just You

I’m not a writer but the general message can be really applied to anyone

The Daily Dahlia

Confession: probably my biggest pet peeve on the planet is when people start a question with “Am I the only one who…?” No. You’re not. You’re not the only one who writes that way, reads that way, likes that food, likes that band, thinks Benedict Cumberbatch sounds like a Game of Thrones character or looks like someone squeezed Spongebob and stuck googly eyes on him…you’re just not. But. There’s a different kind of “Is it just me?” feeling, and that’s the stress of when you’re drowning in something and nobody’s talking about it and you feel like everyone’s got it together but you, and so you don’t wanna say a thing, and it all snowballs until you basically wanna curl up and die. I know that feeling. It’s why I wrote this post after splitting with my first agent. So in case you are wondering any of these things, I…

Hello WordPress!

*Entering generic post about trying out this blogging thing*

Summer 2015 will be spent in my college town, by myself, with no car, taking classes, and working. Sounds like a boring summer but I am excited! I will be moving into my first home and will be staying there by myself since my roommates will be back home. I will be making sure to get the most out of this summer in a beautiful town no matter how much of a ghost town it is. So this is where I will be telling stories, providing random information, posting updates, and releasing all that is in my big head. I hope I will be able to inspire, inform, or do SOMETHING/ANYTHING for my readers – if I happen to get any *this would be a good time to find that follow button of mine* So stay tuned and bear with me as I learn how to work this, I promise to get better!
