.I'm a chipmunk.

So...I got my wisdom teeth pulled yesterday, and at first the swelling wasn't all that bad....nor the pain. Then this morning happened. HAHAHA. I look like a flippin cartoon character. Or a chipmunk, or an upside down hammerhead shark, or a teddy bear. My sister told me she couldn't look at me without laughing. I think that's a very honest statement. I look REDICULOUS!!!

P.S. Sorry guys.....I couldn't handle those horrible pictures of myself posted on the web anymore....I swear I don't look like a retard anymore...promise!!!

.School and such...

So I started school this week. So life has been crazy busy. But it's really fun too. I love my classes. I get to take pictures all the time. So I'm learning all about color slide film, color theory, lighting, integrated media, digital photography, mac computers, 3D design, and more. Basically, I get to do art all day every day and it's awesome. I love that I get to design, sketch and take photos for my homework. It rocks. I love it. Here are some pics I've been taken for homework and for fun:

.Shrub Jumping.

Today, being my first day back in Hood River for a bit, was a totally relaxed day. Slept in, went to coffee with Ben, then sister and I decided to do some shrub jumping. It was awesomely hillarious. Rachel was all "this is just a practice run," and the shrub pretty much attacked her when she tried jumping over it. It was so funny.

.One Thing.

One thing, that I ask you
One thing, that I long for
To lay it all down
To take off my stupid crowns
That I wear to cover up what's inside.
The things I try desperately to hide.
I want to fall on my face.
I long for Your perfect Grace.
Surround me with your love.
Drench my heart with your blood.
Make my life so much more.
Make my life worth living for.

.Matthew 5:3-12.

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for their's is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemaker's,
for they will be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for their's is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

~Matthew 5:3-12

This is rad:
"My eyes will watch over them for their good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and not uproot them. I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart." ~Jer. 24:6-7
