My name is Emily Griffin and I am 17 and I love Christ with all my heart and soul. He comes first in my life. I accepted Christ on April 16, 2006. I was recently Baptised on October 8th, 2006. I go to the most incredible church called Bayside Community Church(www.baysidecommunity.org). Right now we are holding our services at Freedom elementary. I have the most incredible freinds that anyone can ever have. They just like me for who I am. Not what I am. I love them more than anything. Besides the Lord of course. I try to love everyone with a happy heart because thats what Christ would do. I'm very careful about who I trust. I can be pretty blunt on occasion. I don't see any reason to sugar coat things. I try to be kind to everyone. I'm shy yet outgoing. I've got a gentle heart and soul. I love to giggle and laugh alot. I try to remain upbeat about things. I may not have had an easy life up to this point but if everything thats happened in my life until now. I wouldn't be who I am right now. I'm not entirly sure what you define as an easy life but I know I've probably had to deal with some things that most people don't think about as an issue. I've been overly sheltered in a sence yet I've seen more and been through more that I ever wanted to go through or see. I may have been very close to hitting the bottom but now I'm the happiest person on the planet. I try to live in the now yet still try and plan for the future because what I do now will affects what happens in to future. I love to chill and hang out with my freinds. I'm like every other teenager in my opinion. I have guy issue just like every chick out there. You name it. I'm probably going through or have gone through some similar experiences of this strange thing we call teenage life. I'm into theatre and I can perform in front of a huge crowd yet I can't stand up in front of a crowd like in a meeting or in front of the congregation at church and speak. I really don't know how to explain myself. I can be very random at times. I am into photography. I love taking pictures because I can look back on my memories in the future. I carry my camera around with me everywhere I go but I have a bad habit of being shy about taking pictures. So just be like "dude, you need to take some pictures!" or whatever, haha. You have to love digital camera's. You can take countless pictures and it won't cost you a penny. You should get good one. Their a good investment. I do love film to but both film and digital both have their ups and downs. Sadly film is slowly going out.
I love to read and write as well. I'm thinking about writing a play or a book. I've got an idea or two floating around in my mind about what I want the storyline to be but I don't have anything settled yet. My dream is to own a theatre and a touring theatre company someday. We would perform Christian based plays and/or musicals. We would tour around to different middle schools, high school's, collages and Churches to spread the word of God to Everyone and how to deal with drugs, sex, peer preassure and all the crap that teenagers have to go through.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I think it's great. It would be awsome to know if their's other life outside of earth.
