Guys. I am an example of evolution.
Not like Darwin, natural selection, billions of years, Origin of Species stuff.
I'm talking about the second definition of evolution.

the gradual development of something, esp. from a simple to a more complex form.

Those of you who have been following me from the very beginning can certainly testify to this fact. And my more recently joined readers - you will be easily convinced. Things definitely started out pretty simple for me.

I'm not sure if it's this way to you guys, but whenever I look at my blog posts, the time stamp is always two hours earlier than the actual time I posted. Just wanted to let you know( if you have this problem) that I really don't wake up really early and instantly get online. 
Have fun! :)

We were at Fazoli's a while ago eating our spaghetti and breadsticks. I finished my breadstick, so I grabbed Geoff's.
Geoff: Hey!
Me: What? It's in the Bible: Stolen bread is!
Geoff: That's not how it goes.
Me: Whatever. (Eats breadstick anyway)

This morning has been totes fab so far! (I'm practicing my teenage girl speak, apparently!)
I slept until nine, read my book in bed until nine thirty, took my sweet time getting ready, then sauntered downstairs, ate a bowl of cereal while reading, read some more, then got caught reading and was made to do algebra. Ah, the life of a homeschooler! So besides that last part, it was great! Then I made some nom-noms (brownies) for the skating party later - so excited - and now it smells like brownies in my house! :)
Plus, I have a chocolate bar in my purse just waiting for me! I'm one happy girl! :)


My dog can blog too. :)

Yeah, things were pretty much not worth the time they took to write. Even when I tried my hand at a haiku in May of this year,
(Nothing good to say.
But I said it anyway.
So I guess I win.)

I wasn't really saying much, was I? Oh, occasionally there would be a post where I wandered through the shallow parts of my mind and delved deeper, but it was obvious that I was going for quantity and not quality. In December of 2011, I did 37 posts.
And now I feel lucky if I write one a week.
So what's the difference? Well, for one thing, this happened...
I went from taking awkward 90's kid selfies in the bathroom to staring longingly off into the distance?
Well. Yeah. 
But I also matured a lot. And since my blog is an expression of whatever is going on in my mind, if my thoughts become more mature, so will whatever you guys see here. 
Evolution is defined as a gradual development from simple to complex. Everything in my life has gotten more complex lately. Decisions, relationships, piano music, algebra problems - everything is more difficult. It's like leveling up on a video game. THIS ISN'T THE TUTORIAL ANYMORE. 
However, there is really a very simple solution to all the exhausting complexities of life.

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. (Ecc. 12:13)

  1. I have been a witness to the "evolution of Meredith" since we first found out that Geoffrey was going to have a little sister, and it has been one of the most exhilarating and frustrating experiences of my life. Now it is wonderful to see that "potential" that used to look like stubborn willfulness blossom into the resilience of a beautiful young woman who is not afraid to stand for God, speak her mind, and still be a thoroughly enjoyable person to be around. I am excited to see the evolution continue...
