This is for everyone who has only heard Pumped Up Kicks.

Good things happen when you expand your horizons.


Ok, listen. I’m not going to get into the apology and excuse for why I wasn’t writing. I’m just going to write. It’s not going to be organized or make sense because my head is not organized or making sense.

So, I’ve started school. In my Environmental Science class we read a speak by Michael Crichton(Author of Jurassic Park) and I expected to hate it. Long story short–I loved it.

He touch on the fear that is produce by media(mainly, involving “Global Warming.”). And people. And friends. And people that you think are your friends. By everybody. Why do we love fear oh so much? We create things to fear. We create events to fear. Fear is a horrible thing. It’s paralyzing, crippling, and destructive.

God did not intend for you to live or tolerate fear. He created you to live in perfect, heavenly peace. We all have the things we’re afraid of whether it be spiders or man, heights or death. Join me in finding peace in Jesus. I’m afraid of a lot of things. And sometimes, I feel like a bad Christian for not being completely unafraid of the world. But I’m not. I’m only human. And I need God.

I pray and believe that God will give each and everyone of you complete and unshakable peace.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and sound judgment. – 2 Timothy 1:7

Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9


Ok. So. I need to address the root of the problem.

Sometimes, I’m honestly embarrassed by my blogging. Which is totally bogus! I don’t want to tell people about it because I don’t want people to think it’s “lame” or “dumb” or even worse…”dull.” I don’t want to be dull. I want to be the anti-dull. The anti-lame.

Gosh, I sound like some middle-schooler. Disparate for approval.

I used to be better at this. I look back at my old post and I’m like “Dang! This is pretty good.” And then I get to my recent stuff and I’m unimpressed.

I used to be free and down right honest with my blogging. I use to use smiley faces in an inappropriate quantity. Like this,



I need to give myself the freedom to stop taking myself so darn seriously.

…actually, I’m pretty happy with this post. It’s more like the younger more beautiful things I used to write.

Ah. A light at the end of the writer’s block tunnel.

Therefore, my advice for writer’s block? Get over yourself and write. Maybe even embarrass yourself a tad.

What do you do to help cure writer’s block? (Listening to A Fine Frenzy helps me.)
