Snow Storms & Bravery

In my efforts to Be Brave in 2014 I took another step in the blogging world yesterday and made a Twitter Account! I decided to make a new account that is more anonymous, I'm just not ready for the "real world" to know about my blogging. I might be someday, but today isn't the day. So if you're into the Twitter scene and are just dying to read my Tweets about how cold it is around here these days and whatever else strikes my fancy, follow along!

My anxiety has been way out of control the past few days. The grant situation still hasn't come to a conclusion but it needs too. The reality of the situation that is as much as I want to return to that camp and appreciate the effort that has been done to complete the application process, I can't wait any longer. This was a job that was supposed to start on October 28th. It's January 3rd and I'm still unemployed sitting on my parents couch.


I know it's only Day 3 of the 2014 but so far I've journaled everyday, read my Bible and am on my third book that I'm reading for pleasure! It's all about keeping momentum and making everything into a habit! It seems like the popular opinion is reading the Bible and reflecting should be done first thing in the morning but I've never been able to get into that habit. I prefer to end my day with Bible, blank paper and a handful of markers and felt tip pens. Maybe someday I'll join the ranks of sunrise Bible readers but it probably won't be this year. 


To my lovely blog readers who reside in the South (or anywhere where the temperature is above 0) enjoy your ability to venture outside without 10000 layers. It's cold here. Really cold. And it just won't stop snowing. 

If you follow me on Instagram you've already seen this photo but I had to blog about too, because it's ridiculous. I cleaned out my sock drawer after Christmas and was left with this. There are FOUR purple/black socks and none of them match. Same goes for the two pink/black, blue/black, and the three beige coloured ones with three different coloured heels/toes. So frustrating. I haven't thrown them out yet because I'm trying to convince myself that I can make "pairs" out of them,  but my OCD just won't have it. Back in jr. high I refused to wear matching socks and now I can't even wear two socks that are nearly identical but not. A phycologist would probably have a lot to say about that. 

I'm linking up with the lovely ladies for Five on Friday!


  1. Hang in there girl. Everything will fall into place. Those socks are cray-zay! LOL

  2. Really cold here too! I don't mind it on occasion, but this ongoing stuff has to stop!

    Here's to hoping for relief soon! :)

  3. haha I love the socks. I feel you on this one. Only my sock drawer has mostly random knee highs. I finally bought new. Yay for twitter accounts! You will sooo see an increase in followers this way. I don't let the real world know either so don't feel bad. I created a new fb and well everything. I discovered for bible study is that I work better reading in the morning but no study. I would letting my brain think about it all day and sit at night and go back over it. I was able to really get into some deep thought.
    WOW negative degree, no thanks. Im in Florida and I very much enjoy my 50 degree.

  4. Hey! Glad to see it is FREEZING somewhere else too!! It is 0 or below here too and we have tons of snow and are supposed to be getting more this weekend.. AHHH!! :) Crazy socks...I would totally wear them though. lol! At this moment I have on pink socks with a orange & white striped skirt! LOL! Yea, I'm crazy ... I've earned it this year!

  7. Praying for the peace of Christ to reign in your heart girl!!!!! xx

  8. I also prefer to read my Bible at night--sometimes in the mornings, but mostly before bed! And I'm so sorry about the cold! I don't know what I would do in below zero weather. Sending some warm vibes your way! Stay cozy!

    xo, gina

  9. im glad to see you have made habits out of something, I'm hoping to do the same :):) It's a hard battle!

  10. Sorry for double commenting, but yes, where I live it is bitter too. Upstate NY. Was -14 last night when leaving work and with windchill it was -34!!! YES 34 DEGREES BELOW ZERO! In all my life I've never heard of such a thing. Was INSANE!

  11. Hey girly! First time coming to your blog and I love it :) I feel ya about the anxiety.. the past couple months have been very anxiety-ridden for me. I'm so glad that you are reading your Bible and trusting in the Lord though - He truly does know what's best!! And the sock situation would definitely bug me too :)
