I just saw the 2012 movie made me realize how stupid this all is. Yeah, people are going to freak out when 12-21-12 comes around, but hey, I'm going to Heaven, so if anything happens that might exterminate the human race, then I'm set...

Haha...yeah a short post

Into the West: best soundtrack song ever

Hey I just wanted to share with you this song from the soundtrack to The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. It's called Into the West. It's sung by the amazing Annie Lennox.

Here's the video:

Here's the lyrics:
"Into The West"

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All souls pass

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don't say: «We have come now to the end»
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again

And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping


And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West


I absolutely love this song...I am doing "Music, Movies, and Other Pop Culture Artifacts", a.k.a MMOPCA, in Mr. Mosely's Bible class this friday. MMOPCA is where we usually listen to a couple songs and then discuss what worldview is shown in the song. I'm using this song for the upcoming Friday. I have thought about it for a while and I believe that it is a Christian worldview. All I can picture is God comforting someone who just lost a loved one. He is telling them that it's all going to be ok...because when He calls them home too, He will be waiting for them with open arms. At least, this is what I believe it is saying. J.R.R. Tolkien was after all a Christian. Some of these lyrics come directly from the last chapter in The Return of the King.

I hope you enjoy this song, Internet!

The Musical and other things

Well, I've told you about how I'm doing a musical this year right? Well, it's caused me to not do track this year. I'm sort of regretting it, but then again, I am really excited about doing this musical.

I sent an email to the track coach asking him about certain things that I could do this year to still be involved in track but without being on the team. My idea was to come to as many practices as I can to be an assistant/unofficial coach for the throwers since that is what I do on the track team. I figured that I could be there to help the throwers with their techniques and in the process, work on my throwing for next year. I basically just told him what I wanted, and if he says no, then I will just have to find my own time to practice with the discus and shotput for my senior year.

Well I guess that's all for now. I will post sometime later...I don't know when

That time in your life where you are making decisions about your future that's too complicated to put into 2 simple words for this title

I've really been stressed out about the upcoming graduation. Rachel will be leaving us for Cedarville to pursue her career in musical education. Elizabeth is well on her way to becoming an English or History professor at some prestigious school. Then, there's me. I feel like God is telling me that I need to do something to do with kids. I love doing puppets, so maybe I can do that for kids at a church. I don't know. There's so many possibilities.

Lately I made the decision to not date until I am absolutely looking for someone to marry. I've only ever had 2 girlfriends, but I feel like God is telling me to avoid all the unnecessary drama that comes with highschool and dating . Oh well, that's high school for you.

Onward towards March 30th when I get to go to England and see my beloved sister! I will keep you guys updated as we decide what we want to do over there.

New Name

I changed the name of this blog to The Pensieve. It seems more fitting for me. If you know me then you would understand. Haha I am a total Harry Potter nerd. I know the answers to some questions in the books that the average person would not know. Anyways, for you undeducated people, the pensieve is a bowl-like contraption where wizards and witches can actually pull memories out of their minds with their wands and place them in vials. They take the vials and pour the memory into the pensieve if they would like to relive the memory. It pretty much is a filing cabinet for your memories. Pretty sweet huh? Credit for the name idea goes to that one person. You know who you are!

Funny American Idol Audition

Ok guys, just a quick post.

I was watching American Idol tonight and I thought about some old auditions and I found this one and thought it was really funny! Enjoy!

Wouldn't you agree that we, as humans, make pretty dumb choices in our lives? Matt Wilson came and spoke in chapel on yesterday. He mentioned about how he had a tough time respecting his coach. I said to myself, well, I don't like the basketball coach that is here now and I don't play basketball so I'm excused from that...I can disrespect him if I want to. WRONG!

Just because I may not have liked him when he coached in track and maybe I don't like him now, but I still need to respect him. He is my elder and the Bible tells us that we need to respect our elders. This is something that I've been struggling with for a long time. Especially in the past year with the whole Obama thing.

I really have been talking down about Obama to my friends and family and I am wrong to do that. I need to pray for and support my leaders. I can disagree with him, but that does not give me the right to go around badmouthing him. He's the President of the United States of America for goodness sake! *sigh* God, you know how dumb I am. Heck, you probably sit up there on your big white throne and laugh your head off at some things that I do. Oh well. At least I know that I will be forgiven for everything that I do wrong if I just ask it of you! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!! Thank you God!

Calamity Jane

Wow this school-year I'm doing something that I never thought that I would've done. I'm going to be in a musical. I auditioned for the role of "Henry Miller" in Calamity Jane. I'm kind of excited about it. I have the most major minor character if that makes any sense. I'm giving up track this year to do it so I'm hoping it goes well. I think it will, since we have an awesome cast. I have my script and I've been looking over it a lot. A week from tomorrow we are going to block the 1st scene, which means we are going to act out the whole first scene and decide who's going to stand where and everything else. Oh well, I will keep you guys updated!

I am the type of person who does not accept change well. I like things to stay the way they are if I am content. Right now I'm struggling with the idea of me growing up. I can't stay young and in high school forever! I took it very hard when Elizabeth graduated in '07, and now Rachel is getting ready to graduate and I will have to get used to living in a house by myself with my parents. No more Wizbis, no more Wachel. *sniff* *sniff* Life must go on. I must move up to my senior year this fall and begin choosing what I want to do with my life. The thought terrifies me daily, but I know that God has already planned out what my life will be and I am confident that He knows what's best for me.

It's been pretty hard the past few months dealing with the upcoming departure of our beloved youth/associate pastor: Chuck Newman. This is one of those things that happens, but you never expected it to. I still remember the Sunday when Pastor Dave made the announcement back in October and now it is January and Chuck is already just another member of the church. I am excited for the future of our youth group, though. We have great potential coming up from middle school this coming year and also we have great people leaving yet again coming this fall.

I'm down to the last 3 semesters of my high school career and I am excited finally because I know somewhat of what I want to make of my life. Cedarville University, the college that Rachel will be attending this fall, has a traveling puppet team called The Master's Puppets. They are coming to Denbigh this summer to do our VBS and I am excited to be working with them. As of right now, what I want to do is to start/help with a puppet team at the church I end up at and also to work at a local children's theater, preferably Christian.

Oh well, I better go. My sister's kicking me off the computer! I must bid you adieu.


Well, I thought that this England thing was going to be pretty easy. Just another one of those times when Elizabeth is heading off to college for yet another semester of studying her brains out. She's been gone for 2 days, and I already miss her like she just left for college the first time! Oh well, I'm happy for her. She will do so well in Oxford. I have a sneaky feeling that she will become the next C.S. Lewis! haha

As of now we are going over to England to visit her on the 30th of March and I bet it will go extremely slow until that day. I just cannot wait to go see her!
