I'm now officially a tumblr bandwagoner. :)

Good-bye blogger.com....it was a fun 4 years.
I'm thinking of leaving blogger and switching to tumblr.
Everyone and their mom has started tumbling, and I'm thinking I like the graphics/layouts much better.
This may get me excited about blogging again too. Something needs to. I blogged a ton when I had no time to do it, and now I have all the time in the world and never blog. Lame.
Matt Chandler on how I learned morality, not the Gospel.
For some reason, blogger won't let me upload this video, so here's the link.
Go to it and enjoy, I promise you won't be disappointed.
This was created and posted on the blog of one of my fellow small-groupers...and it resonates deeply with me.
Lord, teach me to let YOU define my worth, not numbers. Let me find my contentment, comfort, self-worth, and beauty in You alone.
It's just been one of those days.
Sometimes, being a grown-up sucks.
Maybe I will...?
The more articles I read about the food/farm processing business, the more I want to give up all forms of meat. Over 2 years ago, I gave up eating red meat because it contributes to my already genetically-inherited high cholesterol. It wasn't, and hasn't been, difficult whatsoever. I still currently eat chicken and turkey (the assumed 'healthier' meat). I have always toyed with the idea of giving up all meat, and am slowly being convinced I should.
Before I continue, don't confuse me with those silly "animals have souls and are equal to humans" animal lovers...I am not. In fact, those of you who know me know that I've grown into a person who doesn't really care for animals all that much. However, I cannot get past all of the research that has been coming out about the filthiness of our farms (where America's food is being raised!) For example, one statistic that I read said that Americans consume 3 billion pounds of antibiotics a year, yet our livestock consumes almost 18 billion pounds per year! That is what we are eating! Animals who are sick, therefore pumped full of medicines and steroids and growth-hormones. Oh, and speaking of that, growth hormones in livestock is considered the #1 contributor to young girls beginning puberty as young as 7 or 8 years old!
There are a ton more facts that I could go into, but when I think about it, it kind of just grosses me out. So, I'm deciding whether or not I'm gonna go vegetarian. I do love me a good turkey sandwich, but there's got to be yummy/healthier alternatives, right? (If you know of any, let me know!)
Angels and Turtles
I don't like Halloween, but I dressed up anyway. :)
My friend Shelly and I wanted, so very badly, to dress up as Batman and Robin (cute, right?), but every female Batman and Robin outfit we found was quite scandalous (and REALLY small...who fits in these things?!?)
So, with time running short, we found some cute wings and decided to be a light and dark angels.
Both of our boyfriends and their 2 other roommates decided to be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I think they did a wonderful job creating their costumes!
All in all, we party-hopped 2 different parties, and it ended up being a really fun night. Although I realized that evening that I just don't stay up til 3:30 a.m. all that well anymore... :/
Haha....enjoy the pictures!
Ruben and I.
Cheesy couple picture with our turtles, Jesse (Leonardo), and Ruben (Michelangelo). :)
