A Very Campy Adventure

Thu, 06/24/2010 - 23:48 — Carrie

This past weekend, I decided to go camping with a couple of my siblings. To that end, I booked a campsite at the campground my family has been going to since I was a toddler. I didn't get our usual site, since it was booked until the end of July (although I booked another weekend then, so we'll get that campsite eventually!)

More Wichitan adventures

Wed, 06/16/2010 - 10:21 — Carrie

This past weekend, once again, my travels took me to Wichita, KS, for the wedding of some very dear friends of mine.
Saturday morning at 3 am, I was driven to the airport by my dad. It was a very leisurely trip, especially compared to the last time he drove me to the airport. Tongue
Got there in plenty of time for the flight, and had absolutely no mishaps going through security or anything. I started to worry. Something always goes wrong on a flight... so what would, this time? Tongue

Personality Type

Wed, 06/09/2010 - 11:53 — Carrie

I've been reading some things lately about different personalities. Different tests and various letters and numbers that identify you. Sometimes I look around me and see everyone and think, 'wow, I am so very different. No one is like me!" Then I read a personality profile for 'my type' and it scares me with how accurate it is. Tongue
On the other hand, I'm beginning to wonder about my long assumed INFP analysis. Some of it just doesn't seem to fit me as I thought before.

Counting My Blessings

Fri, 05/21/2010 - 10:17 — Carrie

Life is tough. I have burdens, I have friends with burdens. I can't always figure things out, despite how hard I try. Sometimes when I try to fix a problem, it just gets worse. Some things are so heavy, I'm brought to the point of tears.

But this is a happy post. Laughing out loud

Sure, life is tough. Sure I have burdens. But doesn't everybody? Sometimes the vastness of the world boggles my mind. I have this incredibly complicated life. I have friends, family, work, church, situations, etc...

I'm impatient

Thu, 05/06/2010 - 05:41 — Carrie

and I hate waiting, too.
That's the way I've been feeling, lately. Like I'm just waiting for life to happen to me. I have plenty of stuff going on in my life right now, yet there are so many things I am waiting for to happen. Sometimes it seems to overwhelm me and I just want to pray a selfish little prayer that goes something like this... "God, I know You said You know what's best for me, and I know You said to trust You, and I know you said to wait for Your timing... But I Want It NOW!!! *whine*"

It has come to my attention that the majority of my blog lately has been some depressing stuff. I was trying to figure out why. Am I really that depressed all the time?
Well, no, in fact, I am more often not depressed, than I am depressed. So why do so many of my blog posts reflect the depressive side of me?
I have concluded the following reasons:
1- Being depressed for me is not the norm, so when it does happen, it seems blog-worthy.

The world spins. The sun rises and sets. I go out and come home. I sit and I stand. Depression hovers below the surface. I look out from inside me and see worthlessness in much that I do. Vanity, all is vanity. What matters it that time goes by? Why should I care?
Yet I do care.

I study friends. The way they act. Why they do what they do. Confusion reigns. Their actions leave me with strange interpretations. The depression is rising. I lie awake and wonder. What goes on with those I know? Why should I care?
Yet I do care.

It's been an eventful couple weeks on the work-front for me. The warmer weather has brought a jump in outside playing, and I was pleased to find myself already quite tan by mid-April. Tongue

On the Road Again -or- The Continued Adventures of Carrie

Wed, 04/21/2010 - 14:59 — Carrie

Last weekend I traveled again. This time, it was to that magical land of wind, tornadoes, wheat fields, and aeroplanes. That would be Kansas, in case you didn't guess. Smile

Anna Karenina

Mon, 04/12/2010 - 08:38 — Carrie

I've been reading 'Anna Karenina' recently, and this particular part stood out to me. I feel like this alot. Actually, it was weird, cause just before I read this part, I was feeling exactly this way about the book. Tongue

"Anna Arkadyevna read and understood, but it was distasteful to her to read, that is, to follow the reflection of other people's lives. She had too great a desire to live herself.
