jamieleighpent #748million people around this beautiful earth of ours don't have access to life's most basic need, clean & safe drinking water. Today marks 22nd year of #WorldWaterDay where we pause & reflect on this reality, spread the word, & truly make a difference by giving back. Let's make every day World Water Day until this crisis ends. charitywater.org/donate 1w

jamieleighpent Shout out to my girl @whit_smit You should definitely head over there and check out her stories from South Sudan! I've laughed and cried and just all around miss her. She's worth a follow! Enjoy! 3w
  •   whit_smit You are a kind, wonderful person my munchkin. So grateful to have you in my tribe 3w
  •   jamieleighpent @whit_smit always! 3w
  •   varina_hart Where in South Sudan!? @whit_smit 3w
  •   whit_smit @varina_hart I'm a bit all over the place! Trying to collect stories mostly from NBeG and Warrap State, but based in Juba. This weekend I'm in Alek! 3w
  •   varina_hart @whit_smit nice! I was in mundri about a year and a half ago. Trying to get back soon. 3w
  •   whit_smit @varina_hart that's awesome! If you're ever in NYC I'd LOVE to compare stories- particularly pre/post civil war. 3w
  •   varina_hart @whit_smit Ya seriously! I've been trying to keep up it all. Hell broke loose a few weeks after we left. 3w
  •   whit_smit @varina_hart Wow. I'm glad you got out in time- I'm not in a current conflict state, though the whole country is a bit dicey. But right when it happened... Yikes. 3w

jamieleighpent America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

jamieleighpent I own a lot of books, most of which are in varying stages of not being read. It's selfish really, to color-code my shelves with their spines and ignore their contents.
It's not even that they aren't interesting. But no matter how captivating, I find the appeal of immediate gratification (ie. Netflix) to be much stronger. Movies/TV take no effort or thought. They are numbing and wrapped up in 45 minutes(... or wait, what episode did I start on?) I've allowed my brain to grow slow & lazy on a steady diet of crime dramas and rom-com. This is not to say that you can't learn something from film, but Blackfish & An Inconvenient Truth are not the first things I turn to after work. I turn to fluff.
Perhaps this is a reflection of an undisciplined mind.
I'm changing that in 2015. I have a goal to read 30 books this year. I don't think I've ever read that many books in one year. Maybe when I was younger and had a constant stream from the library. Currently, I'm already failing my mission since I have not finished even one book for the month of January (thought I have started 4). Maybe it's my approaching birthday & the panic of turning 30 that has spurred this goal on.
I've been saying I want my 30's to be my healthiest decade so far. I want to be fit physically, spiritually, emotionally. "And to all this she must yet add something more substantial, in the improvement of her mind by extensive reading." What are your goals for 2015?

  •   jamieleighpent @pentmary thank you mama!! I'm already faaaaailing so bad!! Gotta catch up! 2mon
  •   pentmary There is no "catching up" (take that monkey off) there is just incorporating when you can. 2mon
  •   jamieleighpent @pentmary you should get on goodreads.com you can create bookshelves of books to read and rate/review books you've read + follow others through Facebook and see what your friends are reading. I've picked a couple of my 30 list based on recommendations. Actually I only have 19 picked out soooo if you have suggestions... 2mon

jamieleighpent He's the kind of guy who, on his bad days, still greets you with a warm smile & often your name in the form a song.

He's the kind of guy who will surprise you with a thoughtful gift or kind robot doodle that makes your day.
He's the kind of guy who comes up with the most outlandish and creative ideas that just work & makes everyone go "why couldn't I have thought of that?" He's the kind of guy who remains cheerful, kind, & patient when facing the most daunting of tasks or even unexpected 24 hour layovers.
He is incredibly thoughtful, kind generous, insanely creative, & just an all around good guy.
We wouldn't stay up till midnight creating balloon walls for just anyone. We love ya, @cubbygraham!

jamieleighpent Dreams are the eraser dust I blow off my page. They fade into the emptiness, another dark gray day. Dreams are only memories of the plans I had back then. Dreams are eraser dust and now I use a pen. #ohsweetcanada 2mon

jamieleighpent Today was amazing! 6 runs with @katejankowski across fresh snow! Sore but but felt so good today. I love days that end where I'm physically spent. The best feeling. The best sleep. Why can't this be forever? #ohsweetcanada 2mon

jamieleighpent Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land

jamieleighpent Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours. 4mon
