here is my journal for the day and oh boy is it word vomit..welcome to my head of random thoughts..(lucky you) and i love it. i have the best friends in the world. i have the best roommates in the world. i have the best family in the world. i am so grateful. why am i so blessed?  i know, because where much is given much is required. it's time to show God how grateful i am. it's time to give my time and effort and love to others. it's time to open my heart to those who need love and help. it's time to lift those that have given up. it's time to lend a hand to those who are too weary to lift theirs. i don't mean to be self-centered, but when life gets crazy it's too easy to do. really, it's time to give of myself.

Come Alive

"Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~ Dr. Howard Thurman

Draw Something

This is too funny. I stole it from this blog. Everything here is hers-I take no credit for it. :-) (Although I am a Draw Something addict myself-why it's funny to me, actually hilarious.)

The 3 Stages of Draw Something Addiction

Unless you've been living under a particularly heavy rock, you will know what Draw Something is.
An iPhone/Android app, it's a hybrid between Pictionary, Scrabble & crack.
Presumably invented by the devil to enslave us all, Zynga (the company behind Farmville) are about to buy them out, meaning it's only going to get more addictive.
The important thing is to recognise your addiction & get out while you still can.
These are the three stages of Draw Something addiction...

Stage One
The Unbeliever

Having been bullied into downloading this 'Draw Something' thing by a friend (who's firmly in stage 2), You download the free app. You're not the sort of sucker who pays for stuff like this, after all.
You poke around a little draw a few basic drawings & soon it dawns on you…


Stage Two
The Preacher

THIS IS AMAZING! Holy potatoes this is the best thing you have ever played!
You tell all your friends to sign up & start sending everyone your username. Of course by now you've given in and bought the real app, "Helloooo, 400 free gold coiiinnnss!".
You've bought a few more colour pallets & your squiggles are starting to resemble works of art, even if you do say so yourself.


Occasionally you write little messages "Dude, we are freaking AWESOME at this!!" before scrapping the page & getting "Ahem, I think you mean Drawsome! WINKY FACE" back.
Hohoho, that swine!
Hours pass by as you sit hunched over your phone, with furrowed brow & your tongue poking out… juuust a little.

You my friend are slipping into Stage Three.

Stage Three 
The Grinch

"OK, OK, I'll get to you in a SECOND!", the line up of 30 friends that was so much fun a couple days ago is now worse than mortgage repayments.
What do these people expect? Don't they know how popular you are? Da Vinci never had to put up with this sort of crap (probably).

You've stopped smiling & cocking your head to the side as people draw. Now you switch the letters around repeatedly, hoping maybe you can guess faster that they can draw, BUSY ARTIST OVER HERE, PEOPLE.
When friends guess your drawings it's because you're a fantastic player, when you guess theirs it's because you're intellectually superior, "Ha! I knew it was 'scrabble' when he drew that squiggly red line, you can't rely on people's drawings you know, one must rely on one's wits!"
Of course, if you don't guess theirs it's because the drawing was useless and if they don't get yours, well your references were just too sophisticated.


You already know most of the words the game will throw at your partner, and judge them as they draw. "THAT is supposed to be Madonna?? Where's THE CONE BRA??!"
Anyone who you haven't reached level 30 with is quickly discarded, hey you gotta be tough. It's a draw eat draw world out there, you can't afford to carry dead weight.


Don't worry, after a few days/weeks/months of this, you'll lose interest.
The first step is recognising your addiction & admitting it.

I'm Rose & I'm a Draw Something addict. I would tell you my username BUT I JUST DON'T HAVE TIME, OK??!

Spring Break

Spring break was last week, and it was delightful. I went home and my mom and I went on a date to Disneyland for a couple days. It was so fun to spend time with my momma and the rest of my family at home. 

It was this girl's birthday..

Kumiko Rachel. The best friend I could ever ask for. She loves diet coke, babies, and love as much as I do. She has the purest heart, not to mention she's drop dead gorgeous. I love this girl! Especially because she still loves me even though I keep her up with my snoring at night. Happy Birthday Kume!

Disneyland with the best mom in the world..

I got to see my nieces..



Which means band aids on faces...
and ice cream covered mouths...
and I got to see my favorite Godson..

I wish so bad spring break was still here...I.AM.SO.READY.FOR.THIS.SEMESTER.TO.BE.over!

Baby Boy Struve

My Godson has arrived! (Ok,ok he's not technically my Godson. As in if Autumn and Dane died I wouldn't get to keep him- I wish though. But I'm still his "Godmother"/his crazy fake aunt.)

Bennett Ray Struve Was born Friday morning and he is absolutely perfect!
Congratulations to Autumn and Dane. They are such amazing parents already-such naturals.  

I know I look real good in this..don't make fun

There's something about holding a newborn baby. Their innocence and perfection is refreshing and makes me grateful for life and for God's plan for me. I could just cuddle this little man and stare at him forever. Welcome to the world Bennett! You are so loved.
