Tumblr Q&A #2

Here's part 2 of a questionnaire I found of tumblr!  Hope you're having fun with this like I am!

Give me the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word "heart."

  • My biology/English teacher whose last name is Hart.

Basic question; what's your favorite color/colors?
  • Blues of all different shades, and the ones that have a little hint of green in them :)

What is your current desktop picture?
  • Me with a couple soccer players at the Dynamo stadium groundbreaking ceremony a couple years ago (hence the dorky hard hat) (Ignore the fact that I look awful - that was a while ago....)


You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What is that power?
  • The power to have all your wishes true.  BOOM!  Cuz then I could wish for all the super-powers in the world! Yup -  I just out-smarted the system. You can thank me next time you eat radioactive vegetables and need to come up with a power and you use that.
You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you like to experience again?
  • The half-hour at the Newsboys concert when I got to go backstage and meet Anthem Lights.  Best night of my life :)
You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go?
  • Uhhh obviously I'm going to Europe! If I can only go to one place, then I'm going to London :)

What was the last movie you saw?
  • Love's Christmas Journey, one of the prequels to the Love Comes Softly Series :)
Do you have any obsessions right now?
  • Just the usual ones :) BBC Robin Hood, Anthem Lights, and British actors/movies/TV shows/accents!  And I got a glockenspiel (it's like a xylophone, just awesomer :) and I'm sooo excited :)  My newest musical obsession is For King and Country (they're two Australian brothers with cool accents - how can you not like them?) I'm going to see them live in May, and I'm so excited!  And you gotta love killing two birds with one stone, so here are a couple of videos of For King and Country playing a glockenspiel ;)

Ever had a rumor spread about you?
  • If I have, it's never gotten back to me!

What's the last thing you purchased?
  • A glockenspiel, clothes, and shoes :)
How many relationships have you had?
  • I have a relationship with Jesus Christ.  That's about it!
What were you doing last night at 12 AM?
  • Uhhh sleeping! Like I always am :) I'm not a night owl.  Or a morning person for that matter.  I like sleep too much for either :)

You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you if you are late one more time you get fired. What do you do?
  • Walk by quickly because dogs are scary and the dog might stop drowning and it could come towards me and how awful and terrifying would that be?!? *prepares for the "you're scared of dogs?!?" comments*
You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. a) Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? b) What do you do with your remaining days? c) Would you be afraid?
  • a) Yes - I tell everyone
  • b) I live life to the fullest.  I serve others like crazy, love my friends and people with everything I got, maybe try to knock off a couple bucket list items, get so excited to go to Heaven, and live a life that makes a mark on the world for Jesus
  • c) being a person who doesn't like medical stuff, I'd probably be scared of the actual moment of death, but I'd be so excited about going to see Jesus.

because they're not "little things" when done for the kingdom

Here's a post I wrote on my iPhone one night a while ago :)

Recently I've been thinking about my life and wanting to do big things for God's kingdom. But the other night as I was lying in bed, I felt that God gave me a direction for my life, and now my outlook has changed. I want to do little things for God. You don't usually hear people say that, and it might sound like laziness or lack of passion for the kingdom to some people, but it's not. Here's what I mean when I say that I want to do little things: I want to touch people's lives by doing small things to show them God's love. I want to touch as many people as I can. It might be as simple as smiling to people in the grocery store, being a friend to someone who doesn't have one, being extra nice to a waiter, or helping around the house. Because, you see, the little things are important. So much of our lives revolve around the little things, so we can show God's love to people in their day-to-day lives. I might not become a missionary, start an orphanage, or do "big things" like that on a large scale, but I can be a light to my family, my school, and my community. Because when they are done for God's kingdom and through His love, there are no such things as big things or little things - they're all kingdom things. So as I go into 2013, I want be intentional about touching the lives of people around me by doing the little things I can to show God's love. Wanna join me?
