by Jack’s Mannequin is getting to me right now. Something is wrong, but I can’t figure it out. You gotta swim. Swim for your life. Swim for the music that saves you, When you’re not so sure you’ll survive. You gotta swim. And swim when it hurts. The whole world is watching; You haven’t come this far To fall off the Earth. The currents will pull you Away from...
"The Heartbreak Kid" →
I will be spending time with my cousins. We are headed to Northpark Mall: To see New Moon again. Then Urban Outfittahs, Anthropologie, a massive XXI, and cold stone creamery. Hollah! Black Friday is insane.
Since it’s Thanksgiving, I will list the things I am thankful for. Weeeeee! Okay; God and the life He has blessed me with. The people in my life; family and my real friends. Let’s extrapolate: Mom and Dad and Mark-you guys have helped shaped me into who I am today. Mom, despite my complaints of hassling, I know you’re just looking out for me because you love me. ...

To be or not to be.
Sometimes I have trouble sleeping. I lie awake just thinking. Thinking about the day I just had or things said, actions done. I can not fall asleep. Lately, I have found a start to a solution. My dad recommended a book to me: The Power of Now. In the book, well, the very first chapter, the author, Eckhart Tolle, describes how to be. To be is more difficult than it sounds. This is how I be:...
For the win...
my tumblarity, you ask? 10. BAM!
Two days in
I am two days into my break and have so far: Consumed: 1 personal pan cheese pizza. 1 pepperoccini (<——incorrect spelling) pepper. 1 smoothie. 3 stuffed shells. About 29 cheese tortellini with tomato Alfredo sauce. 2 salads. 3 pieces of various types of bread. 1 bowl of chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream. 1 mcdonalds buscuit. 1 mcdonalds hashbrowns. 1 small orange...
claims he is a magnificent pelvic thruster. Should we believe him, or should he prove himself?
The greatest people in the world
are people I know personally. They’re people with whom God has blessed me. Marielle-I love you. And I miss you soooo much. I wish you were here; you’d fit in so well. I cannot wait for Thanksgiving break…we are hanging out. You’re such a beautiful person-both inside and out. God is your priority in life, and it shows. You’re multi-talented-musically,...
When life is not going the way I want it, it will eventually turn back around. It’s how life works, ya know? God is bigger than my problems. Thanks God, for letting me live.
My tumblarity is about in great of shape as my ankle… Actually, my ankle is in better shape; it’s bigger than normal. I’d rather be doing something else. I want to be home. Or where I belong.
Aubry and Tim and John. They’re wonderful.
I just listened to the most beautiful version of Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing, my favorite hymn. I was surrounded by 4 of my favorite people. Man, Thank You, God.
At this moment… I am listening to great music with the windows down and the wind blowing in my hair. It’s just after twilight, and I am in the company of three of the greatest people I have ever known. Headed to New Life Ranch to grow closer to God, and right now, I am infinite.
Ode to Charlie Spears
Oh, Charlie Spears. The bright blue eyes and sincere smile that make me happy to be alive, the lovely wave of hair that is attached to the happy, tan-ish face. I wish Charlie would teach me guitar so I would remember it and let me play with his cajon. HA! Charlie, I love hanging out with you, especially on our dates at 7 o’ clock on Wednesdays. You’re very well rounded. The...

Yeah…I just reviewed and read reviews on restaurants around Tulsa on urbanspoon.com for about an hour…so what? YAY for prepositional phrases, too!
Man…I would be more than happy with a wee bit of rain this Sunday. Good night and goodnight.
wrote a song called “LYMN (except for Tim).” It’s kind of wonderful.
I DONT CARE...........ABOUT IT!
ledbyzombies: Conversation that took place between me and rach yesterday. Rachel: hey I need a list of 10 things you want. 10 things you need. And a list of 10 of your favorite things. Me: gives her long outdrawn list Rachel: wow that actually helps me a lot. Me: you’re welcome. What’s that for? Rachel: maybe Christmas maybe not. Me: pretty mysterious of you. Rachel: I know, right? I’m so...
I woke up with this song stuck in my head,
Come Thou Fount of every blessing Tune my hear to sing Thy grace; Streams of mercy, never ceasing Call for songs of loudest praise Teach me some melodious sonnet Sung by flaming tongues above. Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it. Mount of God’s unchanging love. Here I raise my Ebenezer; Hither by Thy help I’m come; And I hope, by Thy good pleasure, Safely to arrive at...
I DON'T CARE
ABOUT IT!!!!! I had to:)
“Tim, keep your nuts out of my cleavage.” -John Lepine
Tim gives John the “willies.” Should I be concerned?
Yay for John
And yay for him lending me some of The Mountain Goats. I dig ‘em.
my last tumbl. I would delete it, but I’ll keep it around just in case. I am not angry, really. I just have a long list of imperfections. Ask me about them, because I’d honestly probably want to share them with you. Just to get it out. Not for sympathy or anything. Now that I’ve posted two super lame tumbls, how about some happiness? Today was ridiculously good. I love...
I really really hate English major jokes. I’m majoring in something I enjoy. Okay? Thanks.
I love when my dad says “be safe and take risks.” And when he says “Remember who you are.”
Sundays are one of the greatest days of the week.
Top 7, at least. Here’s why: When you go to First Church, you listen to and create beautiful music. The choir there gives me chills, and I cannot wait for the concert of theirs next Sunday. Also, I am very often presented with the opportunity to learn about Jesus and deepen my relationship with God. I hope that the deepening will happen everyday…I just need to let it. And my dad is...
I, Rachel Elyse Waters, am going to take at least one photo a day for a year. Why? I want to see if I improve, if I differ, and what kind of shots I get/where I am. So, of course, I will tumbl them. This starts today, Sunday, November 8th, 2009. Yay! Right now, I think I will get ready and head off to Panera Bread in search of some breakfast.
Tim Nissen for the win!
Thanks again, man, for calling a person trying to sleep. I love you, but your boy problems need to wait. I’ll buy some pink nail polish for you, and we can discuss this over an appletini tomorrow, okay? Or a coke. Goodnight.
I shoot things. →
You know what?
It’s 8 o’ clock in the evening. I have nothing to do but shower, tumbl, drink green tea, listen to music, pray and learn about Jesus. That is a mighty fine way to spend my evening, if I do say so myself. I’ve needed some down time. PS- Tim, we’re parked right next to each other.
I’d prefer the sound of a dying moose to Tim’s saxophone playing. And I’m sure he’d prefer the sound of a rabid cat in the washing machine to my guitar playing. It all evens out.
“…I’m going to be sucking for a long time.” -Tim Nissen
ptbruiser: About to drive to LR, missing my traveling buddy. Sorry man, I wish you were still here. I’ll go home with you next time.
It when white boys rap.
:) I know you know that I was going to tumbl.
a mild cough. a hug from a British boy. a pink face. great hair. a full stomach. an excited body. clothes that coincide with a bee. laughter. memories. some rad people in my life. a loving, caring family. a lovely, inspired, wonderful life. and one amazing, creative, incredible, artistic God.
for my tumblarity will be held soon. It’s the most pathetic it’s ever been. sigh time to step up my A game if I want to see improvement.
Only bad decision of my life: befriending Tim Nissen. The perks of it: his sexy roommate, John Lepine. Tonight was interesting and lovely. Goodnight.
Lord God, Creator of earth and matter, You both dazzle and hide, You call both light and shadows to be. You dwell on mountaintops And in the nooks and crevices of the mountainside. You speak in both fire an whispers. Your very material creation- With all of its dirt and blood, All of its smells and tastes, Is a playground for thought. And so we-graced, privileged, and called-play At what...
