In the Eyes of a Mall Employee

I recently started working at our local mall. Thank goodness too, because my job allows me to obsess over it and not over the fact that I recently had a break up in my relationship or the fact that the man I still love is hundreds of miles away now back at his home in Texas…

Back to the point of the blog….where I work is located almost smack dab in the middle of the mall. I’m able to see so many different kinds of people. And now, thankfully to a new sporting goods store (which just so happens to carry a decent amount of hunting/outdoors products) I’m able to see a HUGE variety of people.

I’ve always been one to love people watching. When in a restaurant, I tend to always choose the seat at the table that gives me the best view of the rest of the restaurant. I don’t know what it is to be specific about people watching that I love, but by golly I can watch you all for hours on end.

Do you have anything that you tend to do while out in public or at work (which is technically public….don’t mind me…)? You just heard a tid bit of what I like to do, I’d be interested to hear about your job or what little quirks you have in public.


I do remember I said I’d put a quote, scripture, or lyric at the end of every blog, this one is a lyric I heard last night while at a Chonda Pierce concert.

Love is a shelter in a raging storm
Love is peace in the middle of a war
And if we try to leave, may God send angels to guard the door
No, love is not a fight but it’s something worth fighting for

To some, love is a word
That they can fall into
But when they’re falling out
Keeping that word is hard to do

I will fight for you
Would you fight for me?
It’s worth fighting for

~Love is Not a Fight by Warren Barfield (Made famous in the movie ‘Fireproof’)

Unsure (Sure)

I know there is a lot of blogs out here for anyone and everyone to read. I’m one in a billion probably if not more. But I figured, “Why not? What could it hurt to get what I have to say out there for SOMEONE, even if it’s just myself, to read.” So I finally decided to start. Mine probably won’t have very many categories, and will probably be just random blurbs of various points in my life.

The title of my blog, means a LOT to me.  Not only is it a reference to my FAVORITE movie of all time, but it describes what life really is. Yes it’s wonderful and the times we love bring us so much joy, but in comparison it’s a NIGHTMARE to what we have waiting for us on the other side of the Rapture. I acknowledge I may have some readers in the future who don’t really agree whole heartily on my beliefs, but that’s the Nightmare for you. Not everyone agrees with you, not everyone will believe in the same wonderful, spectacular, soooooooo AMAZING God that I do. My Poppa loves me and frankly, I don’t have enough faith to be an Atheist.

As far as any type of topic for this specific blog post, I don’t really have one in mind, it’s just my intro post. Kinda explained the meaning of the title. This is just a blog about my life and any insight I might have that I’d like to share.  I’m not here to make friends or to be noticed, I’m simply here to write. I used to LOVE writing with a passion….and then I went to college. I don’t know if you’ve had the same experience as I or not, but once I was forced to write as opposed to just writing on my own free will, I kinda lost the will/want to write. But I think through my beloved boyfriend (you can read his blogs at:My Life and Other Lies) and my amazing Poppa (God, for those of you who don’t call Him that) I have finally regained my muse.

Sorry about the shameless plug up there for the boyfriend, but I really would like for him to get a bigger following. He’s an AMAZING writer and I am VERY proud of him and the writings he has. He’s actually currently working on a novel right  beside me on the other computer and just started on page 21 of so many more to come. It’s an excellent story of…well…read his stuff and ask him about it, he’d be MORE than thrilled to share.

If you have anything you’d like to say, ask, critique, ect please feel free to do so in the comments underneath. Thank you so much to those of you who are willing to see what I have to say.

I think I’d like to leave all my blogs off with either one of the following:
1) Song



4)Inspirational quote

Today I think I’ll leave you with a quote, and it is one that is helping me get through this time right now, seeing as my boyfriend will be moving in a week to go back home to his family which is 10 hours away.

“It doesn’t matter if one of you is on the moon, if God wants you two together, you will be.”
