Life Screws You Up- My Sister’s Story

My sister is going blind… literally.

I’m not really sure what kind of problem it is but they are still running tests on her…which they have already done so many times. She is losing her vision and it’s almost gone.

She is going to have to leave her dream job and return the car she has been making payments on.

This is when we decided that life should be enjoyed and that you never know what might happen. W are going to plan to go to different places and see different things because Go forbid she goes completely blind and won’t be able to enjoy the scenery.

Bucket List:

* Museum of Science and Discovery

* St. Augustine

* Key West

* A cruise to the islands

* New York’s’ walk for the blind

* Six Flags


Why Are All The Teen Books The Same?

I’m not sure if it’s because I’m 18 that I don’t really find teen books interesting anymore.

They have no deep meaning and wonderful plot. They are only about vampires, people with depression and cancer. Don’t misunderstand, I’m happy that cancer awareness is growing and that we are able to sympathize but I feel like they are just making books about it because John Green became popular for his book so others want to be famous too. Isn’t that why there are more vampire books, movies and TV shows? Because of the Twilight craze and others wanting to be part of it and all the money gained from it?

Anyways, I did some research and I found here books I’m considering getting.  If you know any good recommendations, please go ahead and share.

Is Wanting Control Bad?

I am a very anal person. I like organizing and planning and having everything go smoothly. These couple of weeks have been the hardest because I’ve had to live just day by day. But after this week I will be able to be productive and move forward. I guess that is why I am a business major. Am I the only person who sketches a plan of their day on paper so I can stay on top of things?

Going to church has taught me that ultimately God has control of my life but of course I can make my own decisions. But is it still okay to want control? I don’t like living day by day with nothing planned and nothing definite or not knowing what to expect for tomorrow.
