24 1 / 2014

Today, because of a split-second impaired judgement, I came very close to being very hurt or worse. I looked away from the road for less than two seconds, and because of it, I lost control and flipped my car onto the driver’s side. My car laid in a ditch just outside the field, less than a mile from home. I collected myself, climbed onto the console, pushed the door open and jumped out. I waited for nearly a half hour with an outside -15 degree windchill temperature for someone to help. My only injury was a tiny bruise on my neck from my seatbelt. The fact that I am not sore is a miracle. The fact that I was not crushed is a miracle. The fact that I’m alive is a miracle. My car is a mess. I’m an emotional mess.

I keep thinking about it over in my head. It doesn’t seem real. How am I so lucky? My friend Jon in heaven was not so lucky two years ago May 6th. He was a crazy driver. I think about it all the time. I think about all the pain everyone went through because of his accident. I think about how I had to hug his mom the day after as she sobbed herself to sleep. I think about how Turbo misses her brother. I think about how my best friend Amy will never have the opportunity to marry him and move to Louisiana to hunt gators if they’re both single at age 40. I think about how Brad has to be without a best man on his wedding day this year on October 4th. I think about our bible and heaven talks and how Revelations was “one big acid trip”. What if that had been me?

I know Jon was there today laughing at me. I know also that God was with me today as I drove. He’s always there even though sometimes I choose to ignore his presence. I felt that he was trying to send me a message. Maybe not, and I’m just trying to take something away from this mess. I need to be more present for my loved ones. I need to take care of myself more and ensure my own safety. I’m not ready to be a statistic. I also think it’s time to connect back with God so I can figure out what to do now. I’ve been asking myself “what now” for weeks as is.

I’m feeling very grateful to be safe right now. But I can’t help but feel incredibly sad too. I just can’t shake it.

We will all go through situations in life—some bad, some good. Many times, we think the phrase “I’m going through something” is bad news, but if we view it properly, we realize “going through” is good; it means we’re not stuck! We may be facing difficulties, but at least we are moving forward.

A kid was walking around school wearing this today and didn’t receive a single comment from administration.

Meanwhile, I was pulled over twice by them to mention how “incredibly short” my bottoms were.

Last time I checked, my shorts don’t reference blowjobs.

Quit sexualizing things that aren’t meant to be suggestive.

One of the few posts about dress codes on this website that I can agree is absolute bullshit.

How the guy can get away with wearing that shirt, but the girl gets in trouble for wearing what she’s wearing - which isn’t even the least bit revealing aside from, maybe, her legs - is awful.
