Bring out your inner child

and embrace it

and so it seems like I am missing a picture...

The one where I am in the midst of doing cartwheel...

Yeah about that... my timer and I were a couple of milliseconds off.

Here is the story: Beside this field is a road. Coincidentally every time I turn the timer on and ran to do a cartwheel, a car would pass by. 11 shots were taken, yeah... awkward, but funny. :]

"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams"
-Ashley Smith

Here is the story: I thought it was warm outside when I went for a jog/take pictures. I changed my mind after 30 minutes of walking against the wind. I decided to keep jogging towards my favorite spot to watch the sunset. Turns out it was 34 degrees outside, with a windshield at 27 degrees. Brrr. It was worth it though. Lesson learned: Bring a jacket!

The little things in life

Second day back in Kansas. I went for a walk to watch the sunset like I used to back in the summer. I found this flower. I never thought the picture would turn out like this. Kansas might not have many known attractions, but the nature makes up for it.

"All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all."
"Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings."
"He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well."

Song: All Things Bright And Beautiful
"Sometimes the path you're on is not as important as the direction you're heading."

A step ahead,

then the day before.

I like colored pictures, but black and white has it's own category of beauty.

Finals are coming and I need to improve my self control. I must admit that I can easily procrastinate when I am on my computer using the internet. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blogspot, and anything related to cooking/baking are my weaknesses. Maybe I am being a little sarcastic by using the word "weak", but it's something alike. For the next two weeks (until December 15th), I will not go on any site mentioned above. Time to improve my self control.

"Don't you know it's true what they say
Things are sent to try you
But your time's coming around
So don't you stop trying"
