It's been while since I've posted a journal... or maybe it just feels that way. Honestly, days just seem to blur together for me right now and I have a very hard time remembering if it's a Wednesday or Friday or whatever day it is. If asked "What day is it?" I'll probably respond with "probably November." at this point in time. And with the Holidays coming up, it's only going to get more crazy.

Things have been going okay. I'm still loving where I'm working and my internship is going well. I just wish I had a little more time to write and look for an agent. That's been nearly non-existent as of late. But I still feel like things are going well and everything is still good.

The title comes from the song "Flight" by Lifehouse. The band hasn't done a whole lot in the last few years and were even on an official hiatus for a while. But, this past Tuesday they released their new single (and the new album is due out in the spring). This single, entitled Flight, can sum up the last year to two years of my life. I listened to the whole song (not the 30 second sample Amazon had) tonight and it nearly brought tears to my eyes. It's exactly the way this year has gone for me. As the bridge goes "No more running, no more hiding/No more hurting, no more crying/No more trouble, no more sighing/No more falling, no more striving/No more heartache, no more fighting/No more fears, only flying!"

I've never had a song hit me like this. It nearly brought tears to my eyes. To me, the "you" in the song is God. Maybe that's what the band mean - they've been known for "under the radar Christian lyrics" so to speak -or maybe not. Either way though, it hit me hard tonight. No more to all the pain and struggles and shit I've dealt with the last few years. No more to all the issues that I've been dealing with. They'll still be there, but from now on, I'm flying.

Here's the lyrics video the band released on Youtube yesterday:

You probably want to hear a little about ol' me if you're reading this. Well, I'm 23 and a recent college graduate (now comes the hard part of figuring out what I'm gonna do with my life until I launch my writing career). I'm an aspiring author as well as an aspiring photographer (TheMysteryPhotograph is my photography account). I've been here on dA for about 8 years now. I don't mind fav and runs, but I do like to get feed back on the writings that I post, mostly because I am serious about making a career out of writing. I'm one of those loyal people who gives second chances. My philosophy on that is this: God is always giving me a second chance (or by now, it's probably something like the millionth chance, LOL!) so why shouldn't I? As long as the friendship or relationship is healthy (ie, non-abusive) why not give the person another chance? Basically I'm a wanna be photographer, I'm an aspiring author, I'm a sister, I'm a daughter, I'm a friend. But above all things I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, without him I'd be nowhere and in a very dark place. If you want to know more, please feel free to ask. :)
