i know i'm behind with my 30 days of truth.. sorry :) things have been crazy. two good pieces of news: one of my best friends has finally moved home from Nashville (the Nash, as i call it) after living there for about 5-ish years. and in a week and a half i will be reunited with my loves that flew away to england for a year.. breaking my heart in the process haha but i'm SO happy they are coming home!! good times await. and without further ado..
Day 17: A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
a book i read that constantly blows my mind is the bible. it's my life, you know? the way i live, speak, think, act, trust, love, ect.. it all comes from this source. it changes my "normal" human view into one that is more humble, gentle, and not quick to rush into bad things. it's definitely changed my life.
Day 18: Your views on gay marriage.
the bible is pretty clear about gay marriage.. i don't agree with it. that being said, i would never treat someone badly just because they are gay. people are people, and deserve to be respected.
Day 19: What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
obviously, my thoughts on religion are that i follow it haha but i want to say that organized religion can sometimes be a bad thing. some churches definitely stray from what the bible teaches and i don't agree with that. everyone has a different opinion, and while i respect them all, i choose to follow Jesus Christ and all that the bible stands for. as far as politics, i don't keep up with that subject on a regular basis, but i do think it's important to vote and when the presidential elections roll around, i pay attention and vote for whoever i think is best based on my informed decision.
Day 20: Your views on drugs and alcohol.
drugs: never done them, never will do them. alcohol: in moderation, of course. i love going out and having a drink with my girlfriends, or having a couple beers while watching sports. heck, i even enjoy the occasional birthday shot :) and i am getting super excited for peppermint schnapps in hot chocolate during the wintertime. but i don't agree with drunkenness and avoid it at all costs. i don't get why someone wants to drink so much that they pass out, fail to remember what happened last night or have to vomit their guts out.
anyway. the rest of the 30 days will be coming soon!
