I'm nervous- It's my first time.

So, I have thought seriously about starting a blog for a long time. I have a lot to say, so I figured I could just yell my thoughts at the virtual world and hope someone might be enlightened or brightened or at least entertained at work! I guess I should tell you who I am first.
My name is Jessica. I am a 20 year old dreamer. I have made so many plans for myself and dreamt big dreams for my life. I am in college right now and working on a degree in Psychology; I am completely fascinated by the human mind. I ride bikes, like, road cycling and mountain biking, as a sport and exercise, and I would love to get into racing this year. I love watching movies and get completely lost in books. I love going to Starbucks and think a trip to Target is the cure for anything. I am extremely passionate and strong willed, and I often think too deeply and overanalyze. I also truly believe that a single person can change the world- even if it's just one person's world.
I am a total optimistic and I believe the heart of man really is good. I think my faith in Christ is part of the reason for my constantly positive outlook. God has taught me so much the past few years, and one thing I have really been learning is how God is a lifeline. In this world, we try to make him a guideline, or a list of “do’s” and “don’ts” but that is an incredibly wrong picture of our God. In a world where we are constantly failed by people and life, God is the only thing that is secure and safe and unfailing. When we view him as a lifeline, we know that joy and happiness should be constant, because our joy and strength is in Christ alone.

Nehemiah 8:10 
“Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” 
Psalm 28:7
“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.”

My hope for everyone is that they could feel the joy and excitement and happiness that God has blessed me with, and although I am no great poet or Nicholas Sparks, if my thoughts can be something someone might relate to or laugh at or have an “ah ha!” moment about, then I have accomplished way more than I planned. So read and enjoy, or don’t read, or read and don’t enjoy. Anyway! Love God. Love people. And until next time...
