boy meets world.

Remember this show? I remember watching it on TGIF with Sharyl -- my favorite sister in the world. As the characters grew older and I stayed young my mom wouldn't really let me watch it anymore (for understandable reasons). But now that I'm older and YouTube (the greatest website ever) has almost every show and/or movie available at the click of a mouse, I've kind of been on a Boy Meets World craze. I love this show because from the very beginning to the very end, we know without a doubt that Cory and Topanga are meant to be together. Even when they go through a brief break-up (season 5), we know that they will end up together again (in season 6) and stay together forever (season 7). But for some reason, even that set-in-stone happy ending doesn't keep me from worrying that they don't get back together. As ridiculous as I must sound right now, allow me to confess: I sometimes even get a little teary-eyed when I watch Cory and Topanga argue because I KNOW that they are meant to be together! If only they knew as much as I do.
Don't you wish we could always know exactly what our future was going to be like? What if our life was just one long TV show? Well, from a spiritual perspective, I guess it kind of is. We know our future, we know our destiny, but we just can't remember it. Life is hard sometimes but we have to remember that if we keep going and try our hardest to overcome those problems we have been promised a happy ending. Just like we always knew that Cory and Topanga would have a happy ending.

Okay, I know, it's a pretty lame analogy. But hey, I'm new at this so give me a break. =)

welcome to my life.

Hello fellow bloggers! I really don't have any idea why I am doing this...I guess it's one of those things that you see everyone else doing and you kind of want to try it out for yourself to see what all the hype is. So here I am, just giving it a shot. If I hate it, I'll forget about it and if it turns out to be a time waster I'll delete it.

you get bored, just stop reading; I promise I won't be offended.

Well sixty-seven completely random things about me, my family, my childhood, and my past. I'm sorry if you felt obligated to sit there and read all of that but I hope you enjoyed it! I'll try to keep this thing up to date. As my dear roommate Victoria just told me -- this is a favor to my future children so they can know all the crazy things that happen to me during these the best years of my life.

Hasta luego.
