Day 5...

Ha! So I know I said I would post something every day...and technically (to me anyway) I still am. Even though it is Friday because the clock has passed's still Thursday to me! So here we go.
I've decided to tell you a little about myself for this blog. I'm not sure if any of it will be interesting or not but since I just jumped right into blogging and didn't share much about who I am as a person I figured I might as well do that now.

*My name is Chelsea Loren`. I love my name. Thanks mother and father.
*I love Jesus. I am thankful for Him loving me.
*I'm trying to grow in my relationship with the Lord but it is a struggle. I am human and He understands that and continues to love me for who I am and thinks that I am beautiful...inside and out. It's a good reminder to hear that as a girl.
*I am short. Only five feet tall. I get made fun of a lot because of it. But I enjoy the jokes and don't take any of it personally so no worries.
*I have freckles. Not right now (in the winter) but in the summer they come out of hiding. I love when people have freckles and are proud to show them off.
*I love to dance. I took clogging for 5 years and jazz/hip-hop for 5 years growing up. I miss it. I don't think I could do it again though.
*Walking in the snow at night alone or walking in the warm rain are two of my favorite things to do.
*I enjoy people watching. One of my favorite hobbies.
*I don't do it much but thrifting is another favorite hobby.
*I love the feeling of the warm sun on my skin. Sometimes after I've come home before I go inside I'll park my car so the sun is on the drivers seat and lay my seat back and just close my eyes and absorb the goodness the sun joyously gives away while listening to my music at a really low volume. So low that I can barely hear it.
*I would say that I am very old fashioned in many areas of thinking. Dating, clothes, cars, houses, music, movies are all better how they used to be back in the day. Way before I was born unfortunately.
*I want to move to Oregon in the near future. I hope that if it's supposed to it will work out. If not in the near future then sometime in my life.
*I love the sound of peoples voices. It doesn't matter really what pitch or if it is a male or female speaking. I love hearing how people pronounce words. The order in which they place them. The fact that they are willing to open up to the world a little and share what is on their mind and their heart.
*I love realizing more and more each day that people think differently than I do. I'm learning how to accept this fact and work with it and enjoy it.
*Ever since high school I have been very uncomfortable around people. I don't do well in big groups. If I am around or have recently been around close friends who I am myself completely with I will usually speak out and seem fine. It takes me a while to warm up to people and have the courage to speak what is on my mind but I am still usually uncomfortable about the situation.
*I love being introduced to new music. I love hearing new and different ways people express themselves.
*I enjoy being challenged mentally.
*I learned one and a half years ago that I enjoy doing hard physical labor. I like the feeling of being covered in dirt and sweat and not caring what I look like so long as I'm being productive.
*Going along with that I will say that I hate the feeling of sweat in the summer when I'm doing nothing but sitting still. It irritates me greatly.
*I've learned that situations are only awkward if you allow them to be. I'm learning to enjoy "awkward silences" as others might call them. I think of them as "unexpected silences". They are sometimes needed.
*I like being unique. I'm thankful to the Lord that He made each and every person different. I like doing things in a way that people wouldn't usually expect them to be done. I like catching people off guard. Keeps them on their toes.
*I've noticed the past 6 months or so that I am growing and changing a lot. I don't know if everyone goes through periods in their life that are so noticeable like it has been for me. I don't know if I will ever go through something like this again. I hope I do. I'm enjoying seeing myself change and being able to verbally say what it is that I am learning about myself and about life.
*I greatly enjoy sewing. I hope to go to Africa one day and teach people there how to sew. I think it would be amazing to get to work with women who have gotten out of sex trafficking. But I'm willing to take anything the Lord has planned for me.
This has been longer than expected. I could keep going but maybe I'll just save the rest for a rainy day.
