So tonight isn’t going so well for me. Well I take that back. I meant morning. It’s 3:45 am and I am still awake. I have to be up at 8, too, for church. I am going to be one tired woman today.
But thats the least of my worries right now. I have a dilemma. Two of my friends were supposed to get married this month and my fiancé and I were supposed to be part of the wedding party. Well, they had to move the wedding to November. And not just any date in November but the same date AND time as another friend’s wedding. Except this friend has been friends with my fiancé for almost 20 years. Needless to say, we are attending the older friend’s wedding. But I feel so bad. I truly love my other friends who are getting married, as well and I don’t want to miss their wedding for a thing!!!! :/ but it’s out of my hands now. :(:(:(:(:(:( In time I know I’ll feel better but right now it just sucks. Like majorly. (especially since i know which one I’d rather be at but can say anything for fear of hurting another’s feelings.)
Anyway, enough with that. Anyway, so much going on around me right now. Can I not just have one good year? One year with no bad stuff happening to me? I guess it’s true what they say. When it rains it pours…….
Oh btw as a sidenote, one of my friends and I are doing a 40s themed photoshoot. I am excited to practice my photography!!! The only problem is, i can’t find a dress anywhere. I really want something WWII era. Everyone else has their clothes ready for the shoot. But not me. So help!!!!! Please? Ha. :)
So I think I kinda like the new tumblr app! We shall see! Maybe I’ll even post more! *gasp*.
Now I’m inspired to post. My day started with a blood test. :/ I was at the doctor two weeks ago and had to get labs done as part of my regular physical. A week later, they call me to tell me that my thyroid results were “abnormal” so I had to get more tests. Scheduled my new tests for the 5th but started getting paranoid as well as started having some weird symptoms so yesterday I called and had them move it up. Now I am sitting here with a bruised elbow and I am impatiently awaiting my results that will probably take another week. *sigh* at least I have The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for wii to keep me busy for now. Just praying that it’s nothing too serious. My grandmother had her thyroid removed when she was my age due to cancer. I am hoping to be able to take a pill to fix my problem. But then again….there is another possibility to my symptoms and I’m praying extra hard that this possibility gets ruled out soon!
Hmmm. I’ll keep y’all posted. Now to go kick the fiancé off of the wii so I can either play or get some sleep bc I am extra tired!!!!
Here is a Georgia State Trooper in riot gear at a KKK protest in a north Georgia city back in the 80s. The Trooper is black. Standing in front of him and touching his shield is a curious little boy dressed in a Klan hood and robe. I have stared at this picture and wondered what must have been going through that Trooper’s mind. Before the Trooper is an innocent child who is being taught to hate him because of the color of his skin. The child doesn’t understand what he is being taught, and at this point he doesn’t seem to care. Like any other child his curiosity takes hold and he wants to explore this new thing that this man is holding probably because he can see his reflection in it and that’s a neat thing and he wants to check it out. In this picture I see innocence mixed with hate, the irony of a black man protecting the right of white people to assemble in protest against him, temperance in the face of ignorance, and hope that racism can be broken because this young boy may remember that a black man smiled at him once and he didn’t seem so bad after all.
So I have the mist amazing fiancé ever who decided to surprise me today with a strand of pearls. :) and before that I was already the luckiest girl in the world to have him. The best part was a quote from one of the 8 year old twins that I watch: ” that’s the first romantic moment I’ve ever experienced!” haha thy saw the whole exchange :)
