If corals get stressed they die, so if I was coral I would be dead
what do coral even get stressed about
DYING. I AM DYING. STILL LAUGHING.
Today in my english class we were discussing about the topic “should we talk to strangers on the internet?” and they were like “OH NO OMFG WE CAN NEVER DO THAT” and i was like
why are people always laughing when they’re eating salad? seriously just type ‘eating salad’ into google, and like, what is up with that?

But there is a valid point…
-Songs For a New World, “Stars and The Moon” (via fairlyoddmermaid)
Singing this in my senior recital in a month and a half! Eeeep! :D
What week it’s been. In the past (8) days, I’ve had my world take some mighty shifts. A former dream, long ago brushed aside, was revitalized. I was also was rejected from two grad schools. My brother got back in contact with my mom after nearly three months of silence on the streets. And yet, it all came to a climax today when I received the e-mail I thought I had to wait another ten days for:
Thank you for your application for a Graduate Assistantship in the Division of Student Development at Loyola University Chicago…
…After careful consideration of all the applications, we are delighted to invite you for an interview for the Office of First Year Experience.
Y’all…this is my number one school and my number one position. To say that I’m thrilled to the moon would be an understatement. I called my best friend and I was so excited that she couldn’t understand a word I said. In fact, she was afraid I had been in a wreck because I was so impossible to understand over my screaming. We then proceeded to scream together once she understood that I was, in fact, safe, and that the dream was one step closer to coming true.
I’m not sure how the money will work if I were to make it through interviews. It’ll be yet another challenge, but the hope of that future outweighs the fear that comes with it. If nothing else, the past few months have taught me that God will work his own plans, no matter what my expectations are. His plans are greater than mine, they always have been.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.
God is so good. Trust me, He says. Allow yourself you hope. I think I can do that, Lord. Thank you <3
