I feel so blessed. I am so grateful for the wonderful people Gods been blessing me with and bringing into my life. Those who inspire me, encourage me, and bring out the best in me. Those who make me smile so hard my cheeks become sore. Those who are on fire for God and those who live their lives for Him. Oh how great is our God that blesses us so much, even though we aren't worthy. Thank God for old and new friends that help shape us into a better being. Thank God for the fellowship. Praise God.
Onions are evil. They are sneaky and clear and they hide in your food. Its an impossible task to pick them out, yet, you are hopeful in the attempt in doing so. When an evil onion gets past your sight and you go in for a bite, their poison stings your tongue and burns your mouth. ONIONS ARE EVIL.
The sky turns pink
the ticks disappear
orange spills to the brink
and approaches fear
the light shines through
and shoots darkness with spears
as the heat starts to cool
ones faith is strengthened
the shepard's the only tool
so reached out the brethren
his hand was caught
as he reached for more
tears spilled for what he sought
for he knew without Him
he wasn't strong enough to soar
its true we must knock
in order to open the door.

Exciting news! Today i bought a Nikon Nikkor 70-300mm AF lens for my Nikon D50. i love this lens and i also utilized my macro filter that i scored for 8 bucks (orignally 40 bucks) at Ritz Camera before it closed! Heres two pictures today that i took using each lens/filter! These were taken at the Japanese Garden at Cal State Long Beach. If you want to see the rest check them out on my Flickr account .... http://www.flickr.com/photos/coriibphotography/

The other night i had a dream....maybe nightmare? I had a dream/nightmare and in my dream i had a vision appear that told me Jesus Christ was coming back in 4 days to cast judgement on this evil world we live in. You know, the second coming. Of course I was happy to go home, but than i started crying hysterically because of the so many unsaved important people in my life. I'm so sure of my faith yet, i neglect sharing the gospel with those closest to me. Many of us tend to do this and i just hope and pray i become more bold and reach out to my loved ones more. What a great honor it would be to bring someone to Christ, better yet, what great way to glorify God than to help bring one of his children back to him.

Anyway this is a photo i took and the title pretty much explains itself.

Just got back from San Diego. Gwen Stefani really knows how to put on a good show. Shes like the coolest mom ever! Paramore sounds really good live (even though Haley pretty much gives herself a case of whiplash throwing her head back in forth) but still manages to hit each note accurately! Both No Doubt and Paramore were just full of awesome energy! We were also excited to see The Sounds play too! All in all it was an awesome show and i just can't get over how cool Gwen is! haha, if you get a chance to see No Doubt in a city near you, hit it up! You won't regret it :)

When i first interviewed with the NY Daily News, i totally anticipated turning down the job because i was really nervous and scared that i wasn't supposed to go there. In other words, i have a desire to go where the Lord calls me and im always scared that the decisions i make aren't the ones God wants me to make. This of course leads me to lean on prayer to help me. So after i told my father about the interview he told me "if you get that job, you better take it". Than that got me thinking, it is a good experience and it would be so cool to go. But i couldn't help to wonder what i would be leaving here in CA, even if just for ten weeks. I had so many plans, my church, family and friends. So i prayed really hard monday morning and asked the Lord to lead me. I said if i got the job than i would go and for Him to bring me comfort and confirmation that i was making the right decision. Than the very next day ladies and gentlemen, i received that phone call with the exciting news. It was pretty obvious that the Lord wants me to go to NY. And even than after the slap in the face, i still was nervous in finalizing my decision. But after i thought it through and prayed some more, the Lord brought me peace and comfort. And now, i am so excited to start my adventure and can't wait for the Lord to open more doors for me.
my desire to follow God's will for me influenced me to design this logo remixed with my favorite store...haha. hope you like it!

Exciting news! I received a call today from the NY Daily News. Apparently my interview with them went well last week, because they decided to hire me for a summer internship working with the video department. Pretty exciting since i am a film major, can't beat that kind of experience on my resume ;). All the glory goes to God of course, because without His lead on my life i wouldn't be where i am today. So all my plans this sumer just got replaced with a temporary 10 week move to New York City and an exciting career opportunity.
Ha...looks like my gardening endeavors will be postponed. kinda bummed but oh well... NEW YORK CITY HERE I COME!!!
God is just so good.

I've been inspired to plant some flowers in my front yard. After the idea popped in my head, i pondered on whether i wanted to plant them in the front or backyard. And than i realized, why not the front yard!? why would i even consider hiding something so beautiful from the world?...or at least my neighborhood. This consideration may not seem like a big deal at first, but it goes to show how selfish our nature is, we're even selfish of nature. We should really consider all of our decisions and think about who benefits from the choices we make. Do we solely do things that benefit ourselves? or do we stop and consider the positive or negative effects it would have on other people?
just a little honest tea to sip on
but back to my gardening idea...i'll be doing a little research to see what kind of flowers i should plant and how to care for them. I'll post my progress as my gardening endeavors advance.
