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,

Lecy xx
