A Man of No Hope, Saved.

A lone man sits on a cold street corner.
The streetlight flickers above his head.
The man sits their in despair.
He feels useless.
No more dreams of love.
There's no hope.
But the end is not the end.

Then she walks by.
She pauses.
Turns back around and stops in front of him
.She reaches out her hand.
The man unburies his face from his hands.
He takes a look up at her.
He takes her hand.

A love so strong.
An unwavering feeling of emotion between the two.
A sense of security and closure is now felt by him.
There was a dark, heavy heart sitting inside of him.
But she touched his heavy heart.
And when she did, she made it light.
Staring into the eyes of an angel.
He feels saved.
A new sense of hope has now risen.
Because of that split second.
Because of care.
A love so fierce now stands before him.

...And it cannot be broken.

Well It's My Birthday...

Life has its disappointments. Today, I'm slightly disappointed, but it's all good.
Stupid many people are sick. Whatevs

So I just wanted to write what I'm grateful for on my birthday.
1. Being alive, breathing, being saved by Jesus Christ.
2. Friends that care about me.
3. Being given the great opportunity to do something amazing.
4. Having skills of my own to work on and improve.

There's so much in this world that I appreciate, yet sometimes take for granted. Turning 16 is a big milestone. It's a new opportunity to make something of myself, and to help others. To live life. Appreciate it. I surely am grateful for my life.

I'm A Straight Up Dreamer

STRAIGHT UP---a little quote from Emily haha.
Ok, so to the point now. I think dreams are incredible. I think they mean something, they can be different things.
1. Your typical nightmare. It happens to all of us at one point or another. I think that nightmares may reflect a specific thing that you're afraid of. Or it could be some general idea that you don't like, and your concious finds some crazy way to still convey the point. It's crazy how that happens.
2. A dream that actually happens. I guess you could call it DEIJA VU. Because it's happened to me. Definitely freaky. I have zero clue how that happens. If you wanna know, pray about it I guess haha.
3. Dreams about stuff that's already happened to you. I guess that it could be anything from something fun you did, or something you'd rather not experience again. It's weird.

Ok I'm just saying it in general, because I'm saying it alot. DREAMS ARE WEIRD. Anyways...
4. Random dreams? I think that's pretty self-explanatory. We have no idea what makes those happen. ......Maybe something you ate before you went to sleep?

5. Dreams about things you want to happen. Sometimes it takes a dream you have to make it aware to you that it's something you want. I've been having those dreams alot lately. It could be a change in the world, how things work, something that you'd pretty much love.
Some could say that that's how everybody feels. Everybody has a dream for something that they want.

I think that overall, a dream is something that's given to you to help you pass the time as you wait for something to really happen. It's a mental image, or playback, that you can think of as you anticipate what may really happen in your life.

Don't Let The Panic Bring You Down

Jon Foreman's "Love Isn't Made" has really talked to me. Well, not that I didn't know about what he was saying already. It's just a song for me to kinda go with and agree with, because I most definitely agree with what he's saying.

"Love isn't made. Love doesn't sell or pay. But we buy and sell our love away. Don't let the panic bring you down."

When it comes to relationships and love in our society today, in my eyes, it seems as if that is happening. People find themselves "making" love for others, when love needs to be created. You can't look at someone and just decide that you want to "make" love for them and then just go with that. You need to look at them, and if you love them, you'll know. It's a feeling, it's not just in your head.

You can't buy or sell your love.

And another thing that I wanted to touch on:
Yeah, of course a relationship can't be perfect. There's going to be hard times, there always will be. It may be that just one of the people is having a problem, or maybe you both are with eachother. But the majority of problems can be fixed. And I think that most younger couples, specifically middle school through college, use those minor problems as an excuse to end what they have. Now given, you shouldn't even be dating in middle school because you don't even understand what it's about then. But that's a topic for another day.
But I know what a relationship is about. And if there's a problem, you need to try and fix it.

So don't let the panic bring you down. If it's a little bit of space that you need, make sure the other person knows that's why you aren't talking to them as much. Or whatever problem it is, make sure that the other person isn't left hanging trying to figure out what it is.

Don't let the panic bring you down.

The 2 Types of "Popular"

The word "popular" is tossed around alot in high school. It can totally mess with people's heads. For some kids, all they want to do is be popular. And they let that take a hold of their life.

First type of popular:
The "I've got all this money, I have nice things, I'm big headed, etc." person
And they really bother me. Yeah, it may be because I'm not one of them, but I'm PERFECTLY OK with that. I don't want to be that person. It always seems as if that kind of "popular" person is the one that people "look up to". I think it's ridiculous. Yeah, they may have things you want, but it gets to them. Those kids are usually stereotyped as the "partiers", the kids who always seem to be having the good time. And they make you feel bad about having what you have.

Second type of popular:
The regular, well known person. People know who you are. It's not about having all of that expensive, nice stuff. It's not about partying. You make yourself well known, people like you, anything relating to that. If that's the case, you're that kind of popular.

Obviously, this is just my opinion. But the "popular" stereotype that everybody goes by these days really bothers me. It makes some kids feel bad about themselves, which isn't cool. There's making yourself well known by being a jerk and flaunting around what you have to others less fortunate, but then there's making yourself well known in the positive way.

And if you didn't catch my drift already, I'm in support of Option #2.

Life's What You Make It

Yeah, I did just write a blog about 10 minutes ago. WHO CARES. I dont.

Ok so I'm sure you've read the title of this blog. And you're probably thinking, "Hey Brad, why are you thinking about a Hannah Montana song? Wow, what a loser." Well.......I love Hannah Montana so much and I think about her all the time and she's just so...I HATE HANNAH MONTANA. So that should answer that question.

My intention in writing this blog is to talk about exactly what the title says. That's kinda why it's the title of this blog I suppose.
Life's exactly what you make of it. I see this happen all the time:
"Oh, well it's not gonna be any fun anyways"
"I'm not gonna like this"
"It's gonna be SOOOO awkward"
Pretty much anything like that. Well news for you, it doesn't have to be that way. It's only gonna be like that IF THATS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT.
So really, it's only as awkward as you make it. It only sucks as much as you make it suck. If you wanna hang with someone or talk to them, don't just sit there beforehand and just say "Oh, I'm not gonna end up talking to them anyways they're not going to want to talk to me."
Hmm, well you won't know that until you try. If you go into something with a negative attitude, then that's exactly how it's gonna be. I'm saying that straight up.

If I learned anything from my parents, that's it. And it's been exemplified to me by them as well. Being negative sucks. It's so dumb. Yet I find myself falling short to being positive alot of the time as well, and it's something I'm working on within myself.

If you disagree with me, that's cool. I'm just a kid who sits at his computer and blogs periodically, I'm not your mom......or dad for that matter.
If you agree, or have anything good to say about this to me, PLEASE let me know, I'll love to hear what you have to say :)

It's About That Time Isn't It?

OK so here's the deal. IT'S 1:15 AM on the first day of february. My clock just says 1:15 right now, so I figured I'd let you guys know that.
So you know what I just realized? Ok so like I check my blog like 3 times daily to see if anybody commented on any of my blogs. I like it when people comment on them so I look hah. Anyways, this is what I realized. It's about time for a happy blog. I mean I've had blogs written while I was in a good mood, but I mean like this is a LEGIT happy blog. Or at least totally random.

So I think it was brought up to me that I should talk about rainbows in one of my blogs? Or something like that. Maybe what colors I would pick to be in the rainbow? No clue. Just a little thought I had.
So I like to write about totally random things.
Peanut butter.
Umm, hmm. I forgot how to tie my shoes about 6 summers ago. Yes, I know, I WOULD FORGET HOW TO TIE MY SHOES. It happened.

Wow, that's really all I got for this random blog. I'll get better at this.

....I'm used to writing blogs with some meaning behind them. Spontaneous...ness isn't my thing tonight. I'm tired. Yeah, thats it.

Oh another thing, I wish I had a hair straightener, believe it or not. My hair always flips out on the side and the back and IT DRIVES ME NUTS. It really makes me fruity in the loops.

....I can't believe I just said that. What was I thinking?
