HALEY WRITES: I am an extremely busy teenager. I work 45+ hours a week, I have a family, I have farm and church responsibilities, and I have other relationships. My hobbies are many, but my time is small. The worst result of my busyness is that I often don’t make time for God. Also, piano practice falls to the wayside… My teacher is not happy about that.
I want to make time for the important things, but I feel as though everything that I am doing is important. Every season I keep thinking that the “next season” will be better. But life is never less busy, the busyness just changes. I know that time with God is a choice, but I also need some practical advice on good ways to carve out time with God. How do I make time for God when life never seems to slow down?

I have had this problem before. What I do is get a small notebook and pen and carry it with me everywhere so if I get just a little free time I sit and write down some bible verses and quotes I like and then write a prayer to God. This helps me spend some time with God throughout me busy day. I do It in the car, I do it at night before I go to sleep, and sometimes at lunch. I hope this helps!!! God Bless!
This is a wonderful idea! Do you mind if I try it?
I don’t mind at all! It helps me spend time with God even on the most crazy days!
I’ve been dealing with the same thing, and I find most of my hobbies are getting in the way of what needs to be done. Which leads to me stressing out about EVERYTHING. I seem to paint, draw, read, go for walks, and play my guitar more than I do homework, practice piano, and read my Bible. These are a few thing I find that have helped.
1. One thing I have been doing is getting up earlier in the morning to read my Bible. The morning is always calm and quiet so I can focus and prepare before I start a crazy day.
2. Prioritize. What’s more important? What needs to be done first? Do I really need to be doing this right now? Make sure you have God first in your day.
3. Less iPod/computer/social media/useless wasting time. You would not believe the amount of time teenagers waste on social media. Why do we check Facebook every 5 minutes? There is no reason other than we don’t schedule our time well.
4. Podcasts. Podcasts have literally saved my life. Find some good Bible study/sermon podcasts and listen to them while driving/working out/studying/eating. Just as good as reading a Bible study book, but you can listen to them while doing other things. Some of my favourites are:
Ask Pastor John – Submitted questions answered.
Passion City Church – Weekly sermons from Louie Giglio/Brad Jones at PCC.
Unbelievable? – Debate type podcast where people can call in and give their opinions on the topic being discussed. (P.S. My youth pastor called into one once, it’s really easy and super cool)
I’m sorry, I simply must put this video here. Because like Jordan, certain phrases just drive me crazy. Now, I know that not everybody that says this really means it the same way, and setting aside a certain time to read the Bible and pray is a good thing. Please don’t take this the wrong way.
WHY HAVE I NEVER WATCHED BLIMEY COW BEFORE TODAY?!?!
Me too!! Today I’ve literally watched at least 6 of their videos.. They’re so funny!
Welcome to the family 😛
Haha why thank you, Amanda XD
It did?? It changed??? Woohoooooo!!! Guys, this is an important moment in history! Sam watched Blimey Cow!!!!!!!!! 😀
Sammy!!! Hi 🙂 How’s life?
*ziwwion huggs* :p I win lol
*bows* thank you, kindly. So how are you?
haha. maybe you should *gasps at my own brilliant revelation* charge your phone!
haha. I’m doing alright 🙂 I’m headed to camp next week for three weeks, so I’m pretty excited about that!
Yeah. 🙂 you got anything cool coming up?
That sounds awesome! Wait, like, used to be Baptist Bible College, Clark’s Summit university?
Yeah ik! My parents both went there so i’ve heard the whole story.
haha okaaay… I’m glad
Yeah. I remember that. I really, really, hope it works out for you. I don’t know what I’m doing for college yet.
It was great to catch up with you. I’ll be praying for your soccer camp and leadership conference!
SAM! I was just about to ask you the same thing last night! Funny… Well, I just got back from three weeks of camp. So I’m a bit tired. But getting more rested. Now I have two piano recitals this weeks I’m not prepared for in the least. Haha. How are you, my friend?
Eww. School. oh yeah and I’m signing up to take my ACT. Joy. But I’m glad your well. 🙂
Eww. Well, I’m sure you’ll do fine.
Haha you can do it Sam!!! seriously. I have faith in you!
Well, it was good to talk to you, even just for a bit. I’ll be praying for your upcoming SAT. Bye! 🙂
Yo candy corn dude! How goes it, my friend?
I… am actually not super great. My best friend of 16+ years just moved five hours away for college, so that’s been rough. But I still have a lot to be grateful for, and a God that never changes.
Aww. Thanks, Sam. 🙂
It’s been very bad for my wallet too lol. I bought the most expensive ice cream I could find yesterday on an impulse. It was worth it. XD
Hey Sam 🙂 Can you pray for me?
I’m good. Just bored.
umm… well, frosties were 50 cents this week at Wendy’s. Is it possible to die from too much ice cream? 😉
I’ve honestly lost count of how many i’ve eaten this week. It’s a shame I can drive. But ya know… there’s worse ways to die XD
deal… but on me. 😉 gtg. Bye.
Alright. We’ll fight about it later 😉
Haha okay. You “win”.
nope. hbu eat anything particularly awesome recently?
lol share that pie! Did you save me any?
Sweet. I’m on my way. Give me about 13 hours. (give or take)
A double helping of sanity, please.
Haha no. I wish. It’s been far too long since I have listened to an episode with wooton in it XD
I had waffles for dinner.
Oh yes. Smothered in cookie butter too… Heaven.
Well unfortunately, you’re too far out of my delivery radius, or I’d make you some 😉 Have you ever had cookie butter before?
Well, I don’t think waffles mail very well :/ Dude. Cookie butter, is like, peanut butter, only better, cuz it’s literally made out of cookies.
No it tastes like cookies XD
Vanilla or chocolate?
lol. See, Vanilla is good… sometimes. But only in slight bursts between large time periods where only chocolate flavored anything is consumed. (see, I have this down to an exact science…ish…)
Well, since I don’t like deeply troubling people, I suppose I can bring myself to compromise with swirl. 😉 (random: Took my ACT today! So glad that’s over.)
I’m disappointed in you. Chocolate is my language, boy. 😉 Weeeell I would say it went alright. I feel like I did okay at everything except the math section. I just didn’t review enough. Doing the test right as the school year started was, in hindsight, a terrible idea, but I really just wanted to get it over with XD
Dude. I could make french toast for you.
Good. Get down here.
Hmm. That is a small problem.
You’ll never see me, even if I wave 🙁 They haven’t harvested all the corn yet. :p
It really won’t help you much XD
duh I want a donut.
But I don’t know the way!
Well, I was going insane when my neighbor decided to jackhammer his porch to pieces while I was home trying to study… so I left. I went and paid too much money for a peach smoothie and studied at a local coffee shop. And I got some sanity. How are you doing?
I LOVE peach smoothies. Newly found favorite. And lol, that sounds… entertaining :p
😛 Well. That’s good. It would be bad if you hadn’t survived.
Uh… Sam? SAM?! Talk to me, buddy!
Good I thought you might’ve died 😉
*faints at thought of you almost dying*
Aww man. Now i’m jealous. And that’s a sin. Shame on you for making me sin. XD
Okay. I’ll take it. 🙂
Hehe. How was your Saturday?
lol. French toast could make any day great. 🙂
Well, as good as a day spent serving for a funeral can be.
Well kinda? Some people worked longer. But as a pk I’m usually first there and last out at stuff like that. I don’t mind though. It makes me happy to make other people who are having a hard time happy.
But I took a nap today. Was rolled out of bed at 4:45pm and at church by 5:00pm #classy
Okay. How was today for you?
Actually yes! Visiting some of my besties at college! I’m pretty pumped.
Yay for youth group! Praying for you. 🙂
Finally listened to Therapy Session… I like Mansion better.
I’d have to listen to it again lol. How was your day?
Hey I’m glad! I was actually praying for you today that youth group would be good. My day was long and it’s not over… I still need to go source my entire research paper… tonight.
Hehe it’s okay. I’m done with that now. I should study for a chem test, but I have zero brain power rn.
Hehe. You’re the best.
All I’ve had to eat today is cookies… Oh! and an apple. I think I need some nutritional help, yeah?
Hey. Want some ice cream cake?
How are you on this fine evening?
I ate ice cream cake. 3 of my siblings have birthdays this month. *smiles*
Thanks. I need ’em.
No. I suppose not. 😉
Umm… *stops to think* well, the sunset was really pretty last night.
Umm… *stops to think again* Yes! My friend brought cookies to Bible study. hbu?
Oatmeal chocolate chip… i think? lol. Pizza rolls… that actually sounds strangely good right now. XD
There is little on this good earth that excites me as much as chocolate ice cream.
Clearly, then, you’re the great one 😉
That would be a truly glorious yet terribly unwise way to run out of money XD I’m in!
Um. Yes. Let’s go.
Getting some senior pics taken today. It seems that other girls always get pics taken with what they love… horses, trucks, books, instruments… and so i realized that if i did that, my senior pics would be me and a big bucket of ice cream. Hmm. Ya know that’s actually not a half-bad idea XD
Sammy sammy sammyyyyyyy!!!
Right? Lol. How are you tonight, good sir?
Same here, my friend. Same here. Sorry about the delayed response, my inbox isnt cooperating ;p
Well, I ended up going on a last minute trip this weekend to stay with some cool people for a few weeks to nanny their baby while the momma has some surgery. And they live in the same town as my bestie whos in college, so I hung out with him all afternoon. So. That was good. And cake, is always cool. Lol.
Cake would be good. Hbu?
Well, I think I can do that. I need em too.
Both for me, I’m sure lol
Same here, bro. Same here. Umm… I’m praying for you 🙂
Thanks. You really have no clue how much I appreciate that. And need it 😉
Understood, brother boy. *don’t ask lol. I’m tired.*
Sorry. Heheh. Sooo. Listened to any good music lately?
Meh. Not much. Listening to a lot of soundtrack lately. Nerdy or what?
I wasn’t either. My brother got me into them. I should prolly head for bed. But I’m really really glad we could talk tonight. Thanks.
I ate a chocolate chip cookie. It was good.
It was. Want one?
Good. How are you tonight, my friend?
I’m glad, Sam. Well, I’m better now that I showered and don’t smell like baby spit up and sweet potatoes. Nannying is the best XD
We both know that’s not true.
You’re pretty great yourself, ya know.
Well, its true so you might as well start believing it. 😉
Okay…? Breathing is good. Lol
Yes! I have been reading in Hebrews about Jesus. How he is our High Priest and Mediator… The ultimate and only sacrifice we will ever need. Hbu?
Don’t be ashamed. Lifes too short for that. But that sounds really good.
Tell myself what’s true… That I am not enough, but Jesus is. And I have no reason to be ashamed because I’m His kid.
Very. I think this is goodnight, my friend.
I ate a brownie tonight.
Why are you awake?
Eh. Idk. I just don’t feel like sleeping.
Well, I only got thrown up on twice. And I sent my phone through the washer. Could be worse though. You?
Baby spit up is dull too, but I try to make it interesting 😉
Dude. That’s like the dictionary definition of epic.
Well at least I was close. 😉
Lol I bring out the best in people. What can I say?
Okay. I apologize I could not drive across the country to go shopping with you. :p
Well if you’d give me proper notice , maybe I could get my act together!
Its otay Sammy… I fogiwv youw.
I know. Well, I’m off to tackle another day! School, here I come! Hope your day goes wonderfully.
Yes I did. Shoot me. Lol jk I just felt like changing things up a bit.
Thanks. And really? Heheh you could really confuse everybody and make my old profile pic your own lol
Lol I can imagine. Actually I kinda remember that. That was back during my “ghost reader” days. XD
Yes. Yes she did. Mwhahahaha.
🙂 so how’s your Sunday been?
Aww that sounds really awesome! Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
I made banana bread today and lunch for the family I’m nannying for, and i didn’t totally fail. Thankfully, this is the first day they’ve had to put up with my cooking 😉
I’m eating a frostie. Want one?
*sighs* we’ll have to work on that. You know how I feel about vanilla.
SAM! This is monumental!!!
Oh dear. do tell me why.
Monumental isn’t always bad ya know.
Hi. not much i guess. hbu?
Hmmm. okay. OH! it is the day after Halloween… i.e. hit the candy sales day… which we all know is the real holiday ;p
It’s almost better than the day after valentine’s day! 50% off chocolate! Whoot whoot!
How have you not figured this out by now?!
Well. you could change that lol
Oh good point. :/
Guess what I did on Monday…
I wish… I filled out my first college application. *screams in fear*
Faith Baptist Bible College. check it out.
size maybe? It’s kinda small.
smaller… how many is clarks summit running rn?
Sounds about right… I’ve thought about applying there too. Faith is around 300 i think. Maybe 400.
Guess we’ll see. So are thinking at all about what you wanna major in yet?
Aww… I’m sorry 🙁
… Okay. Niiiice. Got any more?
Did you have a good day today?
Okay. I’m glad! 🙂
Yes, I did. It was actually rather short. And now my football team is literally getting crushed. Scratch that. Got crushed. But it was still a good day.
??? OH! Daylight saving time? No 🙁 I hate it when it gets dark so early. I need light, people!
Whoa that’s right you are old! It sounds dreadfully un-patriotic, but I’m kinda glad I’m not quite old enough to vote this time around…
Oh well, I’m sorry sir. I’ve got the flu, give me a break.
Yeah I’m actually like really sick. I tried to hard too be super women yesterday and actually do stuff and well… yeah, bad idea. I got to about 1:00pm and died. I’m in a fair amount of pain and now I’m behind on a bunch of school stuff. Just pray for me lol
Eh I’ll be okay. Later. XD Oh wait. I can’t laugh. It hurts too much.
Well, enough about me… How are you?
Well, naps are always good, right?
Oh. I’m sorry i guess. And I feel ya on biology. Not my favorite thing ever.
Ummm… well. They make donuts cuter… so I’m for them, I suppose. How do you feel about sprinkles?
Umm. Okay. Good to know 😉
How do you feel about frosting?
Straight up chocolate is better. Dark chocolate is the best.
Yes I actually do. don’t judge.
Have you ever tried dark chocolate covered raisins? Dark chocolate is the best. It’s not too sweet.
No I have not, but i’m not a huge raisin fan. But yes, exactly!
I guess they do have an acquired taste
well, actually, I had to eat a whole bunch once as a youth group type activity and i’ve hated them ever since.
That would do it for me. 🙂 I have never eaten more than about ten at a time.
Lol yeah XD It was pretty bad.
I feel for you. 🙂
Haha thank you. But it was much worse for some… one of my guy friends had to eat a ton of peanut butter… like, a lot. XD
Wow! Why on earth did you guys have to do that? If you don’t mind me asking, but you don’t have to reply if you don’t want to. 🙂
idk who came up with the game. It was nasty. But participation was mandatory lol
Ah, okay. I was wondering understand what circumstances you had to eat all those raisins. 🙂
yup. camp and youth group games can be fun, but that one was NOT fun. XD
lol that’s actually one thing i’m really not… *she says as she is covered in essential oils to treat her cold*
Really! I’m not a health freak. I like my processed foods too much XD
oh yes. very much. do you?
I made brownie cookies today.
riiiiiiiiight? And I only burned half of them so yay.
umm… i don’t know? XD
actually they weren’t that bad.
I love it when you randomly laugh, even if i didn’t say anything funny lol
Here I am. Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
Hey being a day early never hurts 😉
Haha okay good point. I’m just enjoying my bro I don’t see much anymore, so being anywhere is cool. Food or no. But food is good too 😉
Heeeeeey that sounds fun! Yay for buddies.
Sammyyyyyyyy! *wants to tell you to read my article that went up today, but isn’t sure how*
Thanks Sam. 🙂
There you go laughing again. 😉
Isn’t that the truth. Well, if you drove out here, I’d buy you some, but… 😉
Psssst! You started quite the trend in the comment section under my article 😉
I thought it was funny lol
Haylie’s in bed, sick again, O Shakespeare 😉
Sam, how do you feel about coffee?
just answer the question. ;P
*blinks at screen*
WHAT. How have you never had coffee?!
Sammy… Dear, dear, sammy. We must remedy this situation.
Don’t you change the topic on me! Give me a white chocolate mocha coffee, and i will be your best friend.
In my favor, I’m afraid… coffeeeeee….
How are you tonight, friend?
How about… coffee? ;P
Well you know your family better than i do… obviously XD
Haha not sure why but I laughed way too hard at that XD Don’t stress out about it too much. They’ll prolly appreciate whatever you give them since it’s coming from you.
We aren’t huge gifters in my family, so I’m absolutely terrible at picking gifts for people XD
Haha, oh i’m sure it’s not thaaat bad. 😉
When in doubt… chocolate.
There you go. Let me know if i can solve any more of the world’s problems. ;P
Oh yessss. That’s a good one.
I like hugs.
Yeah I guess it’s no secret lol
No, I suppose not. XD
*thinks of brilliant revelation* OH! If you have to buy gifts for any girls in your family… (i don’t remember where you’re at sibling wise haha), fuzzy socks are a win. :p
Lol that’s cool too. Fuzzy socks are most definitely a thing at my house.
But then there wouldn’t be snow! I like snow. But I also like warm weather. 😉
Perfect. As long as it’s not windy. Which it always is where i live. Snow consistently falls sideways XD
Yeah it’s pretty bad. Whenever snow actually falls straight to the ground I always stop a appreciate it.
Thanks 🙂 I need it. I’ve been super sick for like, 6 weeks now and I’m kinda upset about it.
… *pauses*… what day is it?
A day i spent on the couch, but ya know.
Cuz I ate ice cream on said couch. Yes.
Thank you very much.
French toast, perhaps?
Literally the best thing that’s happened to me all day.
Yeah. It’s not like we’ve ever done that before 😉
Go for it.
I am unworthy of such an honor.
How bout you make them. I’ll prolly burn them or something XD
Haha that sounds perfect lol XD
I want ice cream. But, the roads are covered in ice. However, dairy queen is only a few blocks away. Do i chance the mission? XD
yeah. Well, it’s the thought that counts, no?
*groan* Oh so punny. XD
Yeah, still sick 🙁 How are you?
Ugh, I wish i knew! But you still didn’t tell me how you are 😉
Kind of great? Okay 🙂
Health would be good, but chocolate never hurt 😉 hbu?
Aww. Thanks. Now tell me what you want so i can get it for you! 😉
*big hug from Haywie*
*bonus hug, just because*
Merry Christmas eve eve 😉
You’re very welcome. How was your Christmas eve eve?
Haha good luck with that 😉
Will you have snow on Christmas at your house? It’s supposed to rain here…
Heeeeey good for you! That didn’t take long lol
Not really, no. A little better this week though. I had some more blood work tests done on Thursday… maybe getting a diagnosis soon.
Aww. Haywie doesn’t like it too much either. But it’s okay.
I’m feeling better already.
Full healing is just around the corner now, my friend.
Yup. The sprinkles have done it. It’s a Christmas miracle!
*eats donuts* *sends french toast*
Actually no. Still sick :/ But alive. which is good. 😛
Where are my manners… 😉 How are you?
I’m glad. Very glad.
Life is a good thing, no? And besides, it’s a gift.
Um. wow. I might need your help to eat that much… then again, maybe not ;p
on my way.
mmmm… yes please.
I’m so ready for this.
Hehe. Want any?
Well, you don’t want me to eat alone now, do you? 😉
:’) I’m so touched. That is friendship, right there.
Dude. I just found out NF is on tour right near where i live the week of my birthday…
ikr? too bad i prolly can’t go lol
Want a chocolate chip cookie?
And you need some donuts… with sprinkles, right?
Coming right up.
Saaaaaaaaaaaaaam. Hi. Want some french toast?
Oh good. 🙂
Absolutely. With the ice cream. Best combo ever.
All of the above.
OH MY. absolutely.
Good, cuz i’m broke. Gotta rely on my awesome status now lol
lol i’ll see how far it goes XD
What time lol
cool. (i would literally do that, but imma be gone at a youth rally lol)
idk… you pick
I should be around. 😉
Hmmm. okay, will do 😉
I’m home now. and dreadfully hungry.
You’re the best.
😉 I know. So how was your day?
Why thank you. I’m quite hungry. I kinda just woke up and have only eaten ice cream so far.
I had ice cream for breakfast.
So I figured out why I’m so sick.
An autoimmune disease. At least I’m not dying, right?
Thanks, friend. I really need it right now.
Not really sure yet. It’s nice to know what’s been causing all my pain and fatigue… It’s just discouraging.
Hey. I’ll be okay. God’s got this.
sammy? Saammmmmy!! What?
Aww. 🙂 How are you?
Grateful to be alive, but pretty sick.
Have you ever heard of lupus?
That’s what my doctors are pretty sure i have.
I’d tell you to google it, but you’d probably think i was dying lol
So yeah. It’s kinda hard to explain.
NO no no not at all!
It’s just a confusing disease… and everyone reacts to it differently. So It’s hard to explain. Right now it’s causing me severe pain and insane fatigue.
Hey. I’ll be okay.
Haha we’ve gotten this thread over 800 comments now. I only feel a little bad lol
Let’s go with that. yeah.
So, if you’d be willing to pray for me, that my pain would lessen, I’d really appreciate it 🙂 Anything I can pray for you about?
Thanks Sam. I’ll continue to keep you in my prayers, for sure. Life does hurt. A lot.
Hey Sam 🙂
Dude. Go to bed.
Good enough, I suppose.
Got any food?
You know that sounds amazing right now. Can I put on the sprinkles?
Or we could do half and half
Blue it is.
Taste the rainbow.
Oh but I love purple let’s do that too
You should get some sleep. Goodnight. I expect cupcakes in the morning.
My my. That’s quite interesting lol. I had roast beef… And it was delicious. I’ve been asleep so much lately I’ve hardly eaten any real food, so it was quite good.
Lol that’s fantastic.
That’s okay. Life is short. Enjoy food.
Im researching a bunch of gluten and/or grain free diets right now and considering them for health reasons. My French toast days might be put on hold, sadly.
That could be rather beneficial lol
Ummm… I’m not exactly sure… *googles it* 10 hours.
Haha sure. 😉
Roadtrip! Whoop whoop!
Oh my word yess. I mean no. I mean… Just bring it anyways. 😉
Arbys all the way. I love me some curly fries.
Well I mean we could go there too…
Ha. Haha. Ya know XD
Ummm. I kinda like where I live actually.
Yeah. I haven’t had to think much about it I guess.
Haha. Dude, I just had some legit chocolate cake.
No. But I’m telling ya, it didn’t need it. It was so good.
I said it was good!!!
Got any brownies?
That should do it, yeah.
A double shot mocha latte with extra whip cream wouldn’t hurt… But I don’t wanna put you out or anything.
Aren’t you the funny one X’D
Yeeeeah. I don’t disagree lol
Finally what lol?
I think we need to branch out… we need something salty in our diets, right?
Umm… that man can’t live by chocolate alone. I’ve tried.
So man can live by french toast and chocolate alone?
Oh. That makes sense.
it was on TV last night!! I was so happy.
It was except i missed half of it cuz i was at church lol
not really. i mean. church is good. I was actually just riding home with some friends and jamming out at that pointy anyways lol
Hey, you’ve got me!
I had lasagna for dinner. It was good.
oopsies. forgive me. i think there might be a piece left tho.
*innocent smile* Food.
okey dokey. whatever you say.
I’m on my way.
It’s a good one!
Well, I’m here, so.
Have you ever had a Runza?
All the more reason for you to come to Nebraska sometime.
Haha. You’d need a few Runza’s at that point, I think.
I was 8, i think.
Oh my word. I was a weird child… haha.
I was just, weird lol.
I still remember my first recital… I had to play first. But because it was my first recital i didn’t know that was a big deal, and I wasn’t nervous. XD
I think so? lol
Haha yeah, yeah i am.
I’ll eat them… good enough?
My lips turned blue, what could I do, she had a beard, and it felt weird, my friends all laughed… USTAH!
(and that literally sums up my childhood XD)
Oh yeah. There was that.
This is important information. Now, I just have to paint yellow daisies on a big red rubber ball. And ya know, Go to Boston in the fall. And bury treasure in St. Louis. Aaaaaand St. Paul.
Well then i guess I’m #losing. 🙁
No no no, we share food, remember?
That’s still not how sharing works lol
No, Sam, it isn’t. See, I’m giving you food. You don’t need to take it. And close you’re mouth when you’re eating for heaven’s sake! 😛 XD
Yes yes. Food. <3
1010th comment on this DQ… lol
How’s it going?
AWW FUN! I wish i could spend a weekend at my camp lol
You feel terrible? That’s not good.
Haha i know that feeling all too well XD You ride all the way home and you get out and like “Why do i feel like I’m dying oh my word”.
Oh that bad huh? I’m so sorry. You poor dear.
Haha funny story… hate pop tarts. I had them ALL THE TIME as a kid and now I can’t stand them. So you enjoy that pop tart, sir.
OH MY WORD. yes. the brown sugar ones. We had them all the time. Food is like, the most exciting gift ever.
Actually, I’ll take a pop tart. For old times sake. Why not.
Right here 🙂
Haha no worries XD
Not a whole lot. My bro is home for spring break, which makes me happy. My pain levels were bad this week again. But i actually made it to church! *happy* hbu?
Yeah, you. 😉 And good. I’m glad.
I almost don’t wanna ask this, but I’m genuinely curious… How’s school coming along for you? (I’m annoying. I’m so sorry.)
I said sorry 😉 I’m glad! Progress is good.
I’m still not sure what I’m doing. at all. I’m so close to graduating and yet so far. :/
The thought of being a college student in the fall scares me to death, yet I want it so badly! Ugh. I hate senior year XD
Well. Yes. But no. But yes. But I haven’t decided whether or not i can actually finish now, with how sick I’ve been. And yes. Very much EEEEK.
YESS wow i think this is the longest we’ve held a conversation without food. It was abut time lol
A lot more than you’ll ever know.
Me? Secrets? Nahhhh.
You’re right. Smart boy. And BROWNIES.
Wow, you really are smart 😉
OH MY WORD MY CHILDHOOD JUST FLASHED BEFORE MY EYES
Ya know, that’s not a bad idea…
That’s a better idea. What toppings?
Why my favorites? Isn’t it your turn for that?
BACON. yes, that will do.
Oh yeah. Well. Actually bacon is probably my favorite. Seriously.
*remembers that there is chicken bacon pizza in my fridge as we speak*
We had waffles for dinner a few days ago lol
Mom bought me donuts. (actually she bought them for my brother… I didn’t want them because donuts in the house + Haylie with little self-control = Haylie eating too many donuts)
There just might be a few left, if you want one…
Well. If you say so.
XD Sounds like you’re doing okay then, huh?
And I keep secrets… riiiight.
For real, a donut. And I kinda forgot to eat lunch.
I like food. Yeah. Food is good.
I’ve been at a classical piano workshop and concert all evening. And now I’m very hungry. What are you doing?
I’m sorry. 🙁
I’m still sorry. Being miserable is no fun.
You can’t make me. But ya know. Food is good.
Cold pizza is calling my name. I forgot to eat lunch again. XD
Haha. yeah it does. now the hard part… getting up. lol
That is so poetic and inspiring. XD
Oh really now? ;p
Well. That’s good I guess.
Yes please. Haylie really wants a brownie right now.
Does it even matter? 😉
if it’s chocolate, i’m good.
It’s not your favorite, right?
So, no peanut butter.
Not really lol. but okay. yes to the sprinkles.
I’m honestly not a huge fan of it myself. My little brother used to eat peanut butter and cheese *gags* sandwhiches all the time and it kinda ruined peanut butter for me.
It’s pretty sad. I really don’t think i’ve healed from that yet.
That’s the best idea you’ve had in a while XD
Is it bad that “therapy session” is playing in my head lol
I haven’t either. much.
yeah. I don’t know what i’ve been listening to lol… it’s been a lot of everything.
you think? you think what?
I’ve noticed. 😉
nope. but i’m okay with that 😉
Absolutely. I need some laughter in my life. Even if it’s just a “hehe” because you didn’t know what to say.
Actually yeah, it’s kinda close to my birthday XD
You remembered? I’m flattered. I didn’t even remember lol.
I’m impressed! I know about when your birthday is… ish.
lol I am not! take that back! 😉 😛
This is very true XD
Well. Hmm. *tries to make interesting and intelligent conversation*
Well. as long as we’re failing together… with brownies… it’s cool.
How are you tonight, my friend?
Well, improvement is good, right? 🙂 I’m glad to hear that.
That’s all i got tonight 😉
okay okay, being alive is good. cuz i mean, waffles.
(among more important things XD)
Now you’re catching on.
A fire? *exclaims your full name here*, what have you done?!
Your guess is as good as mine… but please do something, unless you want to kill us both XD You can use the brownies but only if you must.
*mumbles with food in her mouth* I feel much better now.
True. But hopefully not because you started a grease fire making french toast XD
Oh my word I think i may die of laughter.
I can’t tell jokes. I’m quite terrible at making people laugh.
Me neither. 😉
Look what you’ve done.
Or the way that I casually stood by when you tried to put out a fire with whipped cream?
(or the way that we just created an entire fake disaster, for no other reason than to smile)
Well, thanks for the smiles. I needed that. Goodnight. Don’t burn anything else down, okay?
So. I’m supposed to decide whether or not I’m gonna graduate this spring, by the end of the month. *nervous laughter* I literally have no idea what i’m doing.
It’s really frustrating. Yesterday I was sure I could graduate. Now I’m not so sure. I change my mind every day! Is it really march already? Good grief.
I’ve worked so hard to finish this year… but now I’m not sure that’s the best idea.
Yeah… we’ll see how this turns out lol
Are you on facebook?
I’m not on twitter lol XD I just wondered cuz i’ve posted a few medical updates on my fb and stuff, and I know you’ve been praying for me about that. But no worries, I can keep you updated here.
Okey dokey 🙂 But if you ever get fb let me know lol
no not really. I started physical therapy last week. it’s hard. that’s it.
Well, they’re having me workout really hard to try to push through the pain and get stronger again. I actually see a therapist once a week, but i’m supposed to be working out every day. It’s… painful. But all in the hope of being pain free soon. I hope :/
I don’t even know anymore. I’m just doing what they tell me lol
I hope it will be.
Oh yeah, I guess it does. I’m so smart.
Sarcasm, Sam. It was sarcasm.
Never mind XD pass me another brownie.
Haha you know me too well.
Thank you. I was about to help you out there. I hate eating brownies by myself!
Uh huh 😉
Oh no you’ve run out of things to say!! *scrambles to find something interesting to say*
Umm. That’s not really where i was going with that. But it chill. How do you feel about scrambled eggs?
I had a grilled cheese for dinner yesterday XD
Umm. idk. sometimes they’re good.
*talking to self* be more interesting, Haylie!
Umm. What’s your favorite color?
oh Haylie, that’s not interesting
Oh. Well. That’s good.
Oh, orange. did i know that? oops.
Oh dear. Well, I’ll remember now, i guess lol
Have you tried coffee yet?
It’s okay. I’ll live. ;P
it’s only 9 tho XD
3 hours. dude. I’m not your mom or anything, but sleep is good 😀
Well, at least you have a good reason. 😉 I accidentally slept for 15 hours the other day…
Yeah… like i had no clue what time it was and my body just kept sleeping lol. I didn’t wake up til my mom called me at like, 2pm.
Yeah. So, you must be exhausted then, huh?
Oooh I bet. Dude, I respect you for even trying to go to church lol
Oh. I understand.
Oh dear me, i hope not.
Ooooooh. Got it.
Get some sleep, okay?
want some ice cream? I have extra.
Whoa. Cool. What for?
Heeeey, that’s pretty neat! I do see!
Now I know what to tell my parents to get me for my birthday hehehehe
You should! I’m sure all your revive-ers (what do you call yourselves?) would love it. So are you managing the sales and shipping and stuff, or just the webpage?
Oh I see. Sometimes I wish i had gotten involved on Revive. I love what you did with it.
And lol well, i’m glad it was simple to set up. I’m so tech challenged i probably wouldn’t have been able to do even that, much less dream up a website that would be simpler.
I can’t decide which color shirt i should get lol XD
With Revive, as a whole. You put quite a bit of work into it, yeah? I know a lot of people appreciate it.
I can’t decide! And I hate decisions. I love the hoodie, but I’m pretty broke lol. I like the red… and the sapphire. And the purple.
Well, I’ll figure it out lol.
I just ordered a sapphire one. 🙂
I don’t think you can get Reb shirts anymore. I wish you could. I would so wear one.
I beat you. 😉
Thanks, friend. 😀
I’m game. You know where to find me. Next to the cornfield XD
(like for serious tho that would be amazing)
lol I’ll be sure to do that.
That would be quite the cost. Too much. Too bad things like trips cost money. What’s up with that? 😉
I wish! But no plans as of yet. :/
Haha. I wish that’s how that worked lol. I’d be there in a heartbeat. I wonder what the half way point between us is…
Oh yeah. Hold on.
I think that puts us somewhere in Iowa then lol
Oh i wish. I love Pennsylvania.
I’m chill with that. As long as there’s brownies.
I’m not hard to please 😉
But you know, I’d just be happy to meet you. Brownies aside.
Absolutely nothing. Brownies are life… but some things are still more important.
Well, yeah that too 😛
A donut. and a cup of coffee. It was good.
Oh yeah i had a bowl of cereal for lunch. I forgot about that.
Actually, no. I’m not. I was so sick when it started that all I could do was cheer from the sidelines.
Lol good job 😉 (p.s. i edited my above comment right when you replied so you might not have seen it)
It’s okay 🙂
I’ll live. Enjoy it for me tho, okay?
So is TLC actually at Summit University (or whatever they call it now XD) or what?
That sounds so fun.
Haha, I love dodge ball, but sports were never really my thing. I was the lame kid at camp who stood on the side lines til a counselor had to drag me into participation XD But I can actually enjoy myself now lol.
Sometime. Yes, please.
Except football. I love football. I love it so much i forgot about it… 😉
Umm. I don’t know yet. Trust me I’ve tried and tried to figure it out.
I was born into a family that loves football. So. I learned to love it lol but I actually do enjoy playing it too.
Of course I was.
you have, obviously 😉
I wish i was gonna be in michigan again this summer.
But nope. Stuck in the cornfield. Until fall. And then I might be at college. But who knows at this point XD
Haha no way
Okay. If you say so. 🙂
“believe me” he says… then “don’t believe me” he says… so confusing!
Okay now I’m entirely confused XD
But it’s okay. We can still be friends. Pass the brownies.
*stuffs face with brownies* absholufely
Like you 😉
so I’m supposed to believe you now?
It would, if i could.
believe it was okay.
Hey I’m fine. It’s fine. Eat another brownie.
You’re not? 🙁
Yikes. I’m so sorry. 🙁
Painful? Oh dear. That bad?
I think i will. I’m on my way out the door for prayer meeting. I’ve never actually been part of a traditional youth group. #smallchurchlife
It’s really terrible. I wish it didn’t have to be that way.
well. church starts in ten minute. I should prolly go. it’s so chill tho, I usually show up five minutes late.
close-ish. not on the same property tho, which i’m kinda glad about.
