JK.

I'm back!

After the last blog failed to take off (I say this as though I have thousands of followers here...the truth has not escaped me) I decided to humbly return here.

Reason being, really...I'm still me. Yes, I am a Christian woman and am living my life as such, but underneath it all, I'm still me.

I still get all emo and put song lyrics up on Facebook. I still drink too much on occassion, and still swear like a trucker more often than I care to admit. I still think Stepbrothers is effing hilarious, and still complain ALL the time about how I'm too busy/fat/poor/what have you. I do the above whilst eating pizza, watching Modern Family on DVD, and buying shoes, of course....Like I said, same girl.

I'm still so gloriously imperfect that it suddenly seemed silly to start a new blog...did I leave some parts of my "old life" behind? Yes. Yes, thank you Lord, yes. But it happened, every single moment of it. If I just glossed over it elsewhere I would be doing the girl that lived through it all a disservice. All the highs (literally) and lows. Every sobfest, every broken heart and rejection--she still survived it. It doesn't seem fair to end her journey here and start over somewhere else like it was all a bad dream (if only, no?). She deserves to start over too.

Even when you turn a page, you're still reading the same damn book. Mine's just gotten a little more interesting and considerably less depressing.
