New Blog

Hello there. This is my new blog. I’ve decided to move over from Xanga; not because there’s anything wrong with Xanga, (I still like it and I have a lot of history there — blogged there since 2002), but I just wanted to start off fresh somewhere new. I guess the reason for that stems from, to put it plainly, Jesus. Something about him just makes me want to change, to be a better person, and live my life fully for him. You might think that I don’t have to go through all the trouble of starting a new blog in order to live the life I was meant to, but it just makes me feel better, ok? Just think of it symbolically. 🙂 I guess I’ve unknowingly taken a lot from the church summer retreat last weekend and it’s only beginning to sink in now. (More on that later).

So, you may or may not be wondering about the name of my blog. It’s taken from the the 13th track of Relient K’s most recent album, “Five Score and Seven Years Ago.” It’s my favorite song on the record, not just because of its 80’s music sound, but because it holds a lot of meaning for me. I guess it’s like a mini testimony of where I am in life right now. The song says it better than I can put in words, so I’ll just let it speak for itself.

Is not quite what it could’ve been
As were most of all the days before
But I swear today
With every breath I’m breathing in
I’ll be trying to make it so much more

Cause it seems I get so hung up on
The history and what’s gone wrong
And the hope of a new day
Is sometimes hard to see (what you see)
And though I’m finally catching onto it
And now the past is just a conduit
And the light there at the end is
Where I’ll be

Cause I’m on the up and up
I’m on the up and up
And I haven’t given up
Given up on what
I know I’m capable of
And I’m on the up and up
Yeah there’s nothing left to prove
Cause I’m just trying to be
A better version of me
For you
A better version of me
For you

To be prosperous
Would not require much of me
You see contentment is the one thing
It entails
To be content with where I am
And getting where I need to be
I’m moving past the past
Where I have failed

But I’m finally catching onto it
And now the past is just a conduit
Right there at the end
Is where I’ll be

You never cease
To supply me with
What I need
For a good life
So when I’m down
I’ll hold my head up high
Cause you’re the reason why

Well that’s it for now. I need my sleep to endure all the Harry Potter maniacs tomorrow. 😛 Good night!
