Watch this clip from Saturday Night Live. Tell me isn’t one of the funniest things you have ever seen. You lie.
Watch this beautiful video of Ellen and Portia’s wedding. For anyone who doesn’t know, I am one of Ellen’s biggest fans. I have loved her since her first stand-up days, so seeing her happy makes me smile.
I am pretty nervous about school today, because I am trying something new, besides the focusing on the positive and ignoring the negative. I have decided that I am going to live my school life by what I call the “Nathan Plan.” What that means is that I am going to go to school for the sake of going to school, realizing that what I am learning is for me to take away with me, extrapolate it out, and try to make the world a better place. I do not find my worth in BSU’s English Department, the world is much bigger. I am not going to school to make friends, but I won’t be hateful, just not overly friendly. I am not going to school to be popular. I am going to school to learn. I am learning to be selective, which I have to say is sad. I like erring on the side of trusting, loving, and gracing people. I think I can do it, though, this pulling back. I mean even Jesus didn’t hang out with the Pharisees. If he couldn’t do it, I am not sure why I think I can.
I am sorry to belabor this point, I just am really struggling with it all. And trying to “get over it,” as I keep telling myself just isn’t working!
