It's not because I'm home-schooled.

Well recently I've been getting 'labeled,' let me tell you, it sucks. It hasn't happened much, but a couple of times is enough. I've been told that since I'm home-schooled I know more about the Bible than school kids - which is true in some ways. Sure being home-schooled in a Christian family has strengthened my faith more than going to college would. But that doesn't mean I have to be categorized as the kid who knows the bible well 'cause she's home-schooled. Learning the Bible is my choice, not my parents. School people have just as much freedom to learn the things I do. So when people tell me I only know a lot about the bible because I'm home-schooled is offensive. I only know so much because I'm passionate about learning all there is to know about my faith. Anyone with a passion for something will do all they can to learn about it and stuff. It doesn't change whether you're home-schooled or not. I understand that its easier for me sometimes, but that's not an excuse to label me. Everyone has the ability to learn anything. I choose to learn about the Bible. Its my choice. Its something I'm passionate about. Its something every single Christian should be passionate about. But barely any Christians nowadays actually take time out of their 'busy' lives to read and dwell on Gods word. Its not because they go to school, its because they have weak faith and because they are ignorant to the importance of really knowing God. They don't get the point that they need to learn things themselves, they can't just go to church on Sunday and then forget about being a Christian for the rest of the week. God doesn't want lukewarm followers, He wants us all to be burning hot. How will we ever be burning for Him if we never stop to listen to Him by reading our Bibles? We won't. We actually have to set aside time for a daily Bible reading or just time to pray. I know its hard, I still struggle to do it. But its the only way that we will ever truly be fully on fire for God. 
So stop watching TV, log off Facebook and go read your bible. What'll be worth more in the long run? Your intelligence on the show you just watched, or the knowledge of your Lord and Saviour? One does not simply gain knowledge by doing nothing, one gains knowledge by studying. "What comes easy won't last, what lasts won't come easy."
So stop telling me I know my Bible well because I'm home-schooled, I know as much as you could. You just lack the discretion to learn.

This ramble was aimed at no one in particular, just something that's been on my chest for a while and has finally escaped.

Anyway, on a brighter note, I went shopping today. It was one of those totally unexpected shopping trips that come out of nowhere yet are amazing cause you get some cool stuff. I'll show you the lovely things I got another time, it's a bit late to play dress ups.

Another thing, has anyone ever just randomly gone out to their back yard one night and done a work out? 'Cause I did that tonight. It was surprisingly nice. I think it'll be a new hobby of mine. Working out in the dark.. Even though it wasn't dark since I had the outside lights on. But I have a feeling the reason I'm still awake is because I did a workout at around 10:30 p.m, probably not the smartest thing I've ever done, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I can also feel that my arms will be in agony tomorrow. But I need to get real tank arms for vaulting next year. So pain is my friend.

Has anyone noticed yet that I ramble a lot when I'm tired? I have.. I don't know why, but everything just seems to come out when I'm tired and can't sleep.
So maybe I should stop before I say something I'll regret..

 Anyway, I'm really tired and I have no idea if this blog even made sense. So please excuse me if it doesn't, but mind you it's almost 3 a.m. So I have a valid reason if it doesn't make sense.

Before I leave, here is a picture that displays my nerdiness.
Yay, I don't get that at all!
Am I meant to say Good morning now, since it's 3 a.m, or do I still say goodnight?
I guess that's a mystery I shall never know the answer to.
So I'll just play it safe and say,

Oh hello, little bloggers! I bet you're surprised I actually got around to doing a 'Wardrobe Wednesday' on a Wed-nes-day! I know, I'm also quite astounded. 

So this is what I wore:

The shirt was 'borrowed' from my mothers wardrobe. As you can tell it's really pretty and suits me well, so she won't be getting it back any time soon. Sorry mum..

The skirt was a bargain from Pagani. Only $10. 

Then I made a daisy chain, daisy chains are free. But you can't really see it..
My shoes on the other hand, were far from free.. They cost me $70! Which is amazing considering the original price for them was about $180. I won that game. 

Once I was done trying to get decent photos of my clothing, I decided it was time for swings so I could release my inner child for a short while. Kidding, I don't have an inner child, I'm just a child in a big kids body.

Oh hey! You can see my cute daisy chain in this photo. Isn't it stunning? Thank you, I made it myself.

Would you like to know what my mummy got for me the other day?
SHE GOT ME A TEA SET! It's so cute! 
But I think she's trying to tell me I should be more girly without hurting my feelings..

Don't you love it?! She got me a set of four cups, milk jug, sugar bowl and a tea pot for only $15!
I love it!
Tea party at Lecys.

I'm procrastinating. So I should leave.. But before I do I shall leave a quote with you to dwell on while I'm absent.

"Holiness is not a merit by which we can attain communion with God, but a gift of Christ, which enables us to cling to Him, and to follow Him." ~ John Calvin

Well, I'm going to go cry in the corner since my kindle app isn't working. So no reading John Calvin tonight. *Insert miserable face here*

Time for Lecy to study! By study I mean procrastinate.

I was social for two weeks, that's enough socializing to last a year at least.

So, this afternoon I'm going to inform you of why I always nap. I haven't always enjoyed having naps, but I do now. Well, the reason I started having naps is simple. I wanted to hide from reality. Without it being bad and destroying my life. I guess a year or so ago I would just lay on my bed and fall asleep to numb the pain of reality. It was my way of dulling the pain for a bit. Because when I would wake up everything would seem less real, until someone would talk about it again. But yeah, sometimes I sleep because I can't handle things in life. You could say it's my way of crying since I rarely cry. But normally I just sleep cause I love it. And when I say I wanted to hide from reality, I'm not implying that my life was extremely bad, it was just hard and sometimes I couldn't cope, so I slept.
Yeah, so that's why I nap so much now I guess.. It's just become a habit. Plus I'm always tired.

Shall we move on from nap time to how I handled not reading for almost two whole weeks? Yes, yes we shall.

I DIDN'T HANDLE IT. Gosh, I was so close to death from my lack of reading. Tonight my brain will most likely decide that it wants to catch up the two weeks in one night. I won't complain till the morning when I have to get up for work. But oh well. This week, or all of tonight, I'm going to be studying 'Aeneid' by Virgil. I'm really excited. Also I'm going to finish my Essay on predestination. You guys can't read it. I'm so cool, I write essays for fun. I know you're all jealous of my nerdiness and supreme coolness. But jealousy is a sin, so you'll need to get over it..

I've also come up with another reason as to why I can never possibly get married; no man will ever be able to understand my passion for learning and stuff. So they'll get jealous and I'll feel mean. So I'll be nice and never love anyone. Just books. And horse vaulting.
I suppose if I ever met a guy who was as excited about learning the same things as me, I might consider him as a possibility - but that's very unlikely. 'Cause if he was smart he'd probably be very cocky, which would be so unappealing. So I can't get married. I'm too smart for that. 

 I feel like I should tell you about what I did over the holidays but I really can not be bothered. So instead I'll just share some photos of my friend and I. We're quite physically attractive. (Inside joke..)

The Platypus face is the new duck face. It'll be huge soon, you'll see. All thanks to me.

I'm done. By done I mean I want to go read forever now.
So goodnight goofy goobers.

It is definitely past nap time.

I'm really tired. 
I'm so tired that I was making a huge mess of the food I was eating a few minutes ago. Then I was thinking to myself that I should wear a bib. Then I suddenly realized, that babies probably wear bibs when they eat since they're always tired.
I am so incredibly smart when I'm tired.

Now that we know how tired I am, let's not be mean if this blog makes absolutely no sense at all.

So I've been thinking a lot lately about people who define themselves as 'christians' and how they live, etc. I don't want to offend anyone with this blog, but I most likely will, so I'm sorry. But, as the great Martin Luther once said, "Peace if possible. Truth at all cost." Truth these days is often offensive, but only because so many people believe lies. "The truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that unless we love the truth, we cannot know it." Blaise Pascal

Anyway, I've been thinking about how weak Christians are these days, and how they treat God as if He was equal with us. So many people have lots the respect for God that He deserves. I know God loves us, and He wants to be our friend, but He still is the Creator of the universe and deserves our respect. Like when we pray, we shouldn't pray as if God was our friend and we're chatting on the phone, we're told how we should pray in the Lords prayer. That prayer begins with praising God, glorifying Him and asking for His will to be done. God is not our equal. We do not deserve to even be able to pray to Him. So we should be thankful that we can, and we should remember that He has a right to our respect.

I forgot everything else I was going to say, but it'll come back to me eventually so I'll write about it then.

Can I tell you all a secret? 
I don't need your permission, so I'm going to tell you anyway.

When I grow up, I want to be like Martin Luther. I want to start a reformation. I WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD! I'm determined that I will write books that Martin Luther would read and learn from (even though he was super smart). But that's my life goal, to start a reformation and show Christians how weak they are in their faith.

I have no idea what the point of this blog was, all I know is that it probably makes no sense and will just end up offending a whole heap of people. But I'll read over it when I'm less dead.

I shall leave now. But here is a song for you to listen to while I'm gone.

I have work tomorrow, and I'm going to die.

So long, everyone! If I don't die tomorrow I might come back and write another blog.. But who knows.
