A Past Teacher

A Past Teacher

I wrote this last semester and recently found it in a clutter of word documents. While in my philosophy class this morning, my teacher was giving a lecture, and although I didn’t comprehend the topic to well, (ADHD at its finest), I did comprehend something intriguing. I’ve noticed before that my philosophy teacher was incredibly passionate about the subject from the way his voice fluctuated with excitement and his face lit up when students showed interest and asked questions. So,…

Starlight Remixes by Jai Wolf

For some reason, I sometimes feel like it’s just me against the world. Like people don’t understand me or my thoughts or my ambitions or my dreams. And after a lot of reflection, I’ve realized that they don’t. I mean, in reality no one does. People can only understand you through their own perceptions and experiences in life. No one knows you better than yourself. No one can see into your mind. No one can truly understand your weaknesses, strengths,…

Are We All Being Misunderstood?

Are We All Being Misunderstood?

Misunderstand. How funny of a word. I think it’s ironic how misunderstood the word “misunderstand” is. The definition of misunderstand is to, “fail to interpret or understand (something) correctly.” So when we misunderstand something, we fail to grasp it completely. I like to think about the word “misunderstand” in the context of how people view one another. The truth is that we can’t understand someone’s inner self. There is a balance that can be reached, but all too often we like…

Diary of a Tired Human

Diary of a Tired Human

There is a quiet knock at the door. My vision struggles to focus as my eyes slowly open. A quick look around tells me that the sun has yet to rise. I turn my head to see the bright green numbers 5:32 flash upon my alarm clock. Oh, it’s morning. The door to my room opens and my dad’s head peeks inside. “Time to get up. Let’s roll.” I barely have time to groan before my jumbled thoughts become coherent….

God works in mysterious ways. You never know what to expect. I can definitely relate due to an encounter that I had last Thursday. This summer, I am interning at an advertising agency that is well connected to the city of Indianapolis. Because of this, I was graciously given the opportunity to attend a special fundraising event for Outside the Box; a non-profit that specializes in helping disabled Hoosiers. After hearing more about their mission and humble beginnings, I was…

I Made a Mistake

I Made a Mistake

Recently my brother Josh and I had an eye-opening conversation regarding respect for our parents. Now don’t misconstrue, I am a very well behaved and respectful child, and love my parents immensely. But I made a mistake recently and struggled to come to terms with why what I did was so wrong. And so, Josh asked me the other day if I had any rules for people when they get in my car. Which I replied yes, everyone who gets…

Friday’s Update

New Music Friday: Let me begin by asking for prayers for my cousin Kyle. A few days ago, he was rushed to the hospital for immediate surgery after his legs were crushed from an ATV crash. Thankfully, the surgery went well and his legs look to be on the recovery track although it looks like some serious days of physical therapy are ahead. Kyle is an incredible baseball player with the intent on continuing the sport in college. I’m sure…

2 Years

Looking back: Today marks 2 years since my sister Gabby passed away. As the years go by, the memories that we shared together burn deeper into my memory. Two years ago, I lost my best friend. It’s amazing how quick life goes by. In the moment, we think of time as dull and sluggish, yet when we look back on our time here on earth, it feels like it all disappeared in the blink of an eye. It’s the time…
