A poem I wrote a couple years ago and completely forgot about until today, when I found it flipping through some old notebooks.

There, up ahead.
Who is that?

There, in the mirror.
Who is it?

What happened to her?

Where are they going?
What brought them here?

To this place?
This hell
I never though I'd be in.

Who is that?
In the mirror?

Is she me?
Is it?
I barely recognize her.

She's changed so much
From what she used to be

How did I end up here?
And if I could change it
. . . would I?

The Best Cookies Ever.

This isn't a cooking blog. But, seriously. Best cookies ever.

Gooey Butter Cookies


1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 (18.25 oz) package yellow cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Add cake mix, stir until well blended. (Will be too thick to use an electric mixer) Roll into 1-inch balls and roll the balls in powdered sugar. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake for 10-13 minutes at 350 degrees.

4. Hide finished cookies before someone else eats them all.

Run, Forever - The Devil And Death And Me

The song of the day. Actually, the story of my life.

I just discovered this band a few weeks ago, and The Devil, and Death, and Me is quickly becoming one of my favorite albums. Brutal and honest, this album deals with the themes of death, youth, innocence, and having to rely on God even when you're not sure if you trust Him anymore.

"We used to dream, and now I don't even believe in you half the time. . . "

I found this on a wall at a church my band played at, and I liked it.


Kind of an old picture, but I'm still in love with it.
