    I am wanted
    Well I got in to both universities that I applied at! Niagara Univeristy, in Niagara Falls, NY, and Empire State College in Saratoga Springs, NY, but classes can be taken online from the comfort of my own home in Canada. So, next I am just waiting to hear about what kind of financial aid I will qualify for..and then I have to make my decision as to which school I will go to by May 1st..yikes..!

    Am I really ready for this massive life change? I hope so... I think so..!

    The past couple nights I have felt like doing absolutely nothing. I don't know why, but I used to love going out in the evenings and now all I want to do is stay home. We've skipped our church small group like 3 weeks in a row.... oh well.

    Anyway, I saw this poem at work today and wanted to post it on my blog. It gave me goosebumps. Enjoy.

    The Nail Man, by Steve Turner

    Which one was it that held the nails
    and then hammered them into place?
    Did he hit them out of anger,
    or a simple sense of duty?

    Was it a job that had to be done,
    or a good day's work in the open air?

    And when they clawed past bone
    and bit into wood, was it like all the others,
    or did history shudder a little
    beneath the head of that hammer?

    Was he still there, packing away his tools,
    when 'It is finished' was uttered to the throng,
    or was he at home washing his hands
    and getting ready for the night?

    Will he be among the forgiven
    on that Day of Days, his sin having been slain
    by his own savage spike?

    About Me

    Name: jamie
    Home: St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
    About Me: I am an American living in Ontario. I've just recently started going to school again for a BA in Human Services. I like mexican and indian food and watching tv way more than the average individual. I absolutely love talking to my parents on the phone and my brother is one of my best friends. I'm married to a great guy whose pretty much the exact opposite of me but he loves me and makes laugh and we have a lot of fun. I didn't always feel this way, but these days I'm feelin' pretty good. That's my life, welcome to chaos and order.
