Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.

If only real life was like the movies…

I just finished watching “A Cinderella Story.”
Three things come to mind:
1. If only life could work out like the movies…
2. “Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.”
3. “I live in a world full of people pretending to be something their not, but when I’m with you I’m the guy I want to be.”

How true… On all counts!

I think that’s what it comes down to right there… I’m tired of pretending. I’ve gotten better – a lot better, but I’m still not there. I need to take a lesson from Sam. I need to learn to continue stepping back and trying to be the real me all the time, not just when I’m around certain people. Then the question becomes: Who is the real me?

Me, me, me, me. Well, me likes (wow that sounds totally like I copied it from somewhere, but I swear I did it without thinking about it!) to be around people who share similar ideals and beliefs. Me likes to hang out with friends, but likes to do different things, even though me tends to get stuck in a rut. Me loves food, but that doesn’t mean going out to eat for three meals a day! Me likes to talk. Me likes to watch movies, preferably with friends. Me really likes to laugh. Me loves and worships Jesus and me loves you (even if your last name isn’t Hagel). Me goes crazy without music.

Is that enough about me? Me has some goals too: Me wants to get the heck out of school, start a career and build a loving family. (Me says it doesn’t necessarily have to be completed in that order.) Me also says that me has had enough of talking while using the word me.

Me didn’t make it to church this morning cause I just didn’t get out of bed in time. I felt pretty bad about it too, but I guess sleep was important to “me” this morning. I did get some stuff done around the house before going to the wedding at the GT. After the wedding I came home, ate some dinner and ended up devoting my attention to watching the movie instead of working on other stuff.

. . .

Me needs to go to sleep so that I can get up and do lots of homework in the morning. Good night, God bless and Love you you all…
