i didn’t really know what to expect with this bible. i’ve never had a bible like that. but at the same time its not really anything that really blew me away.
AND NOW…SOME SAMPLE PAGES (CLICK ON PAGES TO ENLARGE):
Day 5, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don’t have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member
i’ve known mike for a long long time. we met in a chatroom for the band five iron frenzy. and since then we were pretty much bffs. now we don’t talk as much. he lives in canada and i’m in seattle. after i had graduate from high school. another friend who i also met through that chatroom and i went to canada together. and we stayed for almost three weeks. it was amazing to be with my best friends. i loved it. he was my first kiss. now that was almost 10 years ago. and now mike and i talk talk as often but hes still one of my dearest friends. we pick up where we left off and we also share the same birthday hes just 5 years older. i love him dearly.
next is another dear friend colin:
i’ve known colin about the same time as mike. also from the same chatroom. we always clicked and it was always an easy friendship. we’ve been through a lot. i talk to him more often than i do mike. but we’ve been through interesting times. we bicker for one thing haha its pretty funny. but we also got robbed at gunpoint together with 3 other friends. we were mimicking it after it happened in that picture. i haven’t seen him in a few years because he lives in oregon. hopefully soon we will see each other again.
and last but not least. is justin my boyfriend:
i don’t know how long ago we met but we first met on the messageboard for five iron frenzy. same band for all of those friends. it brings people together haha. i never would have dreamed that i would have ended up with him. its somewhat still weird. we’ve been through a lot in our relationship and its still somewhat rocky. there are things i don’t like to think about that have happened but reality is that they have happened and we have to push through. and we have. at times our relationship is easy but at times its also really really hard. but i love him, he is my best friend and i’m super grateful to have him.

Day 2, Thursday: Educate us on something you know alot about or are good at. Take any approach you’d like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)
Something i’m really great at is being introverted. i’ve always been that way as long as i can remember. there was a time in my life where i would go do a lot of stuff and be with a lot of people. but i was never loud and i never really talked much. its just how i am and i don’t have a problem with it.
but with being such an introvert comes with the fact that you don’t have many friends, you rarely do anything. and you have no one to talk to.
while i’m great at it i am not always fond of it. i’d love to have some friends i talk to online or text with. but that just doesn’t happen. and sometimes its really depressing. especially when you are introverted on the freakin Internet. i mean how scary is that! you just don’t see anyone you type. and yet i still have zero friends. its hard to just break into that whole circle i guess.
the cancer/chlorine things are all fine. he has been cancer free for 19 years. and i just don’t go in chlorine. sorry for not including that!
