When people get older, their hair tends to turn a certain color... either gray, or white.
I am glad to announce that when I am 75 and my hair is completely one of those shades, it will be white. Do you want to know how I know that I will have a head full of white rather than gray?
Today, as I was looking at my hair in the mirror, I noticed a few strands of.... spray painted hair? No... it couldn't be. I haven't been around paint in awhile. I look closer, and what do I see? A few pieces of hair that are bright white. To prove my theory correct, I pulled a strand out and examined it closesly. It was definitely white.
I'm 19 years old and I'm already showing signs of extreme aging.
At this rate, in about 5 years, no one will remember that I am "Taryn, the girl with dark curly hair" because my hair will be completely white. They'll see me and be like, "Wow, that lady dresses really young for her age. She looks about 65 but dresses like a teenager!"
Ok, so I'm being dramatic. I'm not worried about it... really, I'm not. I am finding humor in the situation. Everything will be ok.
Highlights of my weekend:
*Going to One World with my parents
*Sleeping in until 10:30 a.m. on Saturday morning
*Watching "The Top 100 Kid Stars" on TV while eating Subway... in essence, the art of "chilling," something I'm not capable of letting myself do very often anymore
*Attending a phenomenal bible study on Joseph
*Revisiting Dutch Blitz (it's been awhile)
*Trying to take some potential Christmas card shots of the "T House" inhabitants
*Hearing that the Bears WON
*Eating BBQ turkey, mashed potatoes, salad, green beans, frozen fruit cups, rolls, and some extraordinary chocolate
chocolate chocolate cake for an early Thanksgiving celebration with my family
*Attempting to figure out my sisters' personality types
*Beating Kirby and Pete in ping pong doubles with Brittany's aid (Brittany and I were viscious ping pong doubles champs in 8th grade, let me tell you... it appears as though we still have the touch)
*Sitting here at 12:01 a.m. with the knowledge that I get to sleep in tomorrow and every single day for the rest of this week
Non-highlights of my week:
*Finding a few white hairs on my head
Verse for today:
Romans 12:11-12 (NIV) "Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spirital fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
I love you all.
