What are you Passionate about?

6:10 PM

So, I want to hear from my blog readers

What are you passionate about?

We are all passionate about something. Being close to the Lord is probably mostly everyone's answer. Which is good.
But whats something that your interested in. Could talk about for hours. Probably annoy people cause you talk about it so much.
Some people might say photography, friendship, missions,teaching, music, and lots more. I to am (or was at one time) passionate about those things.

One thing though I'm passionate about that wasn't in the list above, is Sports. Over the past year and a half i've fallen in this vast invatuation with sports. Yes all sport. Well, ok, not all.. i still find golf a little boring.

I don't know why. I just have.
Maybe its God coaxing me in a different direction. A year ago I though I wanted to be a elementary school teacher.

  • I'm making sure that whatever college i go to is in driving range of a nfl football field or race track. (race track preferably)
  • The other night I waited in anticipation to see where Tim Tebow would get drafted ( anticipation is an understatement. I was NERVOUS! lol)
  • I've also had the NFL draft as one of my Firefox tabs for the past 2 days.
  • Nascar.com is one of my top sites in my browser box.
  • Also I told my mom its sad when I'M the one telling the boys at co-op who got drafted....

I'm still praying. I don't want to start pursuing this if its not Gods will for my life.

However, its something i love. I'm passionate about. And could see doing for the rest of my life.

P.S and if your wondering what i would major in, in college. I'm looking at Communication with a Public Relations minor. (both I could use in the Sports industry)

I am...

Ever have those moments when you do something and say
"I'm such a...(fill in occupation here)..... daughter"
The other morning i work up with something poking in my my side. I figured it was just my calculator.... Sadly i find my self sleeping on that more often because i do math on my bed. But to my surprise it was my mini screwdriver that i keep in my room!

"You know your a mechanic's daughter when you wake up and realize you've been sleeping on a mini screwdriver"

James Dean - OK. Ever since my momma had me watch Giant last year my favorite actor. dead or alive has been James Dean. About 2 weeks ago I curled up in my bed and watched Rebel Without a Cause. AMAZING. One of my all time favorite movies now.
My mom and I are on a search for a movie poster or picture of Jame Dean for my room. We found this one and I CANNOT wait till we buy it ;)

Easton Corbin- I LOVE country music. You know how some people grow up listening to Rock or Jazz music. I grew up on country music. I still remember singing Kenny Chesney or Alan Jackson songs with my mom in the car. I love finding new Country artists. Easton Corbin is beyond good. He's crazy good. I love his single "A little more country than that" it is a cute and wonderfully written song. Check it out below.

Oh and while we are on the subject of country music. If you like country music like me. Buy Josh Turners Album "Haywire" its AMAZING.

This is a picture of my grandfather. While spring cleaning my mom found this and said we should put it in my room, since it was black and white, and my room is black and white themed. I LOVE it in my room. I never knew my granddad because he died when my mom was young. I'm hope I'll get to see him in heaven one day, but until then I like seeing this photo every time i walk into my room. Though he's not smiling in this photo my grandma says I (and my mom) have his smile. Makes me smile thinking bought it.
(by the way, you can't really tell in this photo but my granddad look A LOT like Cary Grant. Its pretty cool. Even my grandma says so. She says she loves watching Cary Grant movies cause its like watching Grandpa)
