A Little Bio...

The name's Chelsea. I'm a pretty average person, I think. I like all the usual things like watching movies, surfing the internet, spending time with friends and family, reading a good book, and doing arts and crafts. This is going to be a sporadic and spontaneous record of my thoughts. There's no specific purpose or theme, so be prepared for whatever comes to mind! (=

Defying Gravity.

This is an excerpt from my current favorite song. It’s so powerful and relevant right now. I love this song. It’s so amazing. Hope you enjoy!

Defying Gravity from Wicked

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I’m through with playing by the rules
Of someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It’s time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes, and leap!
It’s time to try
Defying gravity
I think I’ll try
Defying gravity
And you can’t pull me down!
I’m through accepting limits
‘Cause someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I’ll never know!
Too long I’ve been afraid of
Losing love I guess I’ve lost
Well, if that’s love
It comes at much too high a cost!
I’d sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I’m defying gravity
And you can’t pull me down.

Star Light, Star Bright.

I was patrolling the internet the other day, thanks to StumbleUpon!, and I happened upon these little nuggets of joy. I loved her idea so much that I’ve adopted it and made my own jar of “treats” to enjoy. Each one has a little fuzzy inside that’s the perfect pick-me-up on a gloomy day. They’re super fun and easy to make, and they look so adorable sitting in a bowl on my coffee table. I’ll post pics of my own project eventually, but for now you can just enjoy Creative Kismet’s original blog post. Hope you all enjoy as much as I did!  (=


An Important Thought.

Knowledge is power. Ignorance is dangerous.
– Robert Voeks

I think this is extremely true. There is nothing more dangerous than ignorance. It's possibly the most dangerous thing there is.

Thoughts for the Day.

Hey kiddies. I’m finally making my attempt at blogging. I’ve been thinking about it or quite some time now, and I guess now is as good a time as any to get started. I have no specific or focused purpose in mind for this blog, so it will be incredibly sporadic and possibly a bit chaotic. Whatever is on my mind at any random point in time is fair game. Just keep in mind my rookie status when browsing my page. It’ll take some time for me to work out all the kinks and I appreciate patience.

There’s a lot of junk going on in my life right now so this feels like a pretty good way to get things off my mind. Lots of lessons have been learned in the last few months, and I feel that I’ve become a much stronger and better person because of them. I now know exactly who I can honestly call my true friends. They’re the ones that I can count on rain or shine, think and thin, hurricane or monsoon, and dust storm or earthquake. They’re the best of the best and I wouldn’t trade them for anything on this planet. I wish some of them could be closer, but we make due with our cell phones. I’ve heard that distance matters not when two people are true friends, and I’ve discovered in the recent months that this is an absolute fact. When you can call a person up at complete random, even if you haven’t talked in years, and you can pick up exactly where you left off the last time you spoke, that’s a true friend. Sadly, I can only honestly say that I have three of these left in my life. Although they are few and far between, I am incredibly grateful for each one of them for being a part of my life. They are the best of the best and I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for them.

On top of all that, there’s a move in my very near future. I’ll be moving out all on my own in 31 days and I can’t wait! I’ll finally be free from the drama and BS of a roommate. No more dealing with messes that aren’t my own. No more dealing with the obnoxiously loud TV when I’m trying to sleep or do homework. Best of all, just a general no more dealing with someone else. I’ll be responsible for myself and only myself. I think that’s what I’m most excited about. I won’t have to consult anyone else when I’m making decisions. The simple freedom of it all is the most exciting part. I can’t wait for my first taste of freedom!
Well that’s all for today…maybe. If I’m bored later perhaps I’ll write some more. I unfortunately have two papers to write tonight, so no promises!!  (=
