I can hold my breath I can bite my tongue I can stay awake for days If that’s what you want Be your number one I can fake a smile I can force a laugh I can dance and play the part If that’s what you ask Give you all I am I can do..

On May 22nd, 2011, I sat in a church in Zimbabwe and became a Christian. And then on May 22nd, 2013, I found out that I was accepted to the World Vision CIDA Internship posting in Zimbabwe.   I’ve been missing Zimbabwe a lot since I got home. Some days, I wouldn’t trade the luxuries..

I was really excited for the new Switchfoot album to be released. I was excited because Switchfoot has provided so many songs that I just love. Songs that resonate with me on levels. Levels of happy and sad, heavy and light, fear and courage, and hope. Something to know about me is that I have..

So, I have a confession to make: I love Miley Cyrus’ new song “Wrecking Ball”. I have another confession to make: While I understand a lot of the controversy surrounding Miley Cyrus these days, I also really don’t understand it. Do I agree with everything that Miley Cyrus does?

I’ve been asked a handful of times what the hardest part about being here has been, and I’ve given a few different answers. -There is a difference in the way time is valued, and as such, I’ve ended up sitting and waiting around for two hours. -I miss my family. -I don’t like using blair..
