1. Work for a good cause - I so badly want to go to africa and help out in whatever way I can. maybe for a couple of weeks, maybe for a month, who knows but I want to do it
2. Learn to play the guitar - this has been on my list since I was about 10 years old. Hopefully i can get this one checked off sooner than later
3. Spend a day with Matt and Dave - is this really attainable?! I say yes! A girl can dream can't she.
4. Invent a new letter - you know, i've been working on this one since, well, kindergarten. I'm convinced that it can happen but no luck so far. You should definitely hear some of the sounds I've made trying to come up with a new letter :)
5. Spend more time with Jesus - doing my best....
6. Take more pictures - I'm thinking I should include video in this too. Youtube is a big hit these days! I should jump on the bandwagon and starting keeping record of some of my finer moments.
7. Run in a race - I debated on putting this on my list. Someday I'd like to say I ran a marathon, but I'll settle for a 5K.
8. Sing "The Hills Are Alive, with the Sound of Music" while running across a field in Austria - this is going to happen for sure! I've loved the Sound of Music since the first time I saw the movie (that would be age 6, at least thats the first time I remember it) So I would think a dream of 18 years should probably come true. Right?!
9. Write something - I'm going to write a book someday. Not sure what, when, yada yada, but its on the resolution list.
10. Be at peace - wow, this ones deep. There's a lot going on in my life and I really just need to find peace in it all. The aloneness, the happy times, the tears, the unanswered questions, the wait.
So theres a list of 10 resolutions I hope to someday cross off my list. I should probably add a resolution to stop biting my nails but you know what, I've come to terms with the fact that no matter how hard I try, when I get nervous, its inevitable! Another resolution would be to discover new music artists. I already do this but maybe if I write this down I'll really make a point to put more effort into it. And someday, I want to spend a day hanging out with Rev Run and his family! How fun would that be!!! That family is hilarious. I can't wait to check out this ole list of mine a year from now. Lets hope I can at least cross one off the list. We'll see..... later gators!

Then, I was talking to one of my kampers tonight and she was telling me about how she's been watching the Discovery Channel a lot lately. She said that every time she watches Shark Week she thinks of me. I was like, "hmmm, thats odd." Then it hit me. Back in the Real Deal Kanakuk Days, Julie and I made up a story that I was in a shark attack. It was probably one of the greatest improv stories ever told. I couldn't believe that she still remembered it. It really made my night. Thanks Ryane! (If you're reading this, sorry that we told you a lie and that you still believe it to this day. You made my night though!)
And with that, I close. What started out as a dreary raining day, God brought the sun. With the sun God brought lots of smiles. And where there is smiles, there is thanks.

Tonight I'm missing my grandpa and I was struck with the concept of "life." Its got me feeling a bit overwhelmed. We're all here for a purpose right?! And we spend a good chunk of our time on this Earth searching for that purpose and/or trying to live it out. Does there ever come a time when you say "Okay, I've done all I can do, I've searched as far as I can go" and then you just stop? Will I ever feel like I've really achieved my purpose here? Or will there always be more. A lot of people have desires which they seek to fulfill and I think that many times, those desires get in the way of our purpose. You want the family, the successful job, the house with the white picket fence, the dog, 2 cats, the cars, the box seats......... They start out with the question "whats my purpose or what am I here for?" A majority will answer that question with the desire to have a family. That desire then spills into the rest of their life where they try to achieve things that, while good, really leave you wanting more. Desires are great but they are not purpose.
Again, the question is asked "what is your purpose?" I personally believe it's to go and make fishers of men. But once again, I'm left feeling confused and overwhelmed with that answer. Where do I go? How do I go? I'm left with the feeling that purpose can never fully be achieved while I'm on this Earth. Its hard to find peace in that, don't you think?! That what you're called to do can never fully and completely be achieved. Theres always more to be done, places to go, you're never fully satisfied. This is something that I've struggled with for a good 1/2 of my life. What path am I to take and where will that lead. Sure there will be many accomplishments along the way, many highs and lows, and thats all part of your journey. You're filling in that circle that is purpose. But will it ever be completely filled?
After you read this and you're more confused then ever, welcome to the club because as I read this back, I'm not sure if it even makes sense to me. I guess what I'm trying to say is that trying to figure out life is impossible. Am I where I'm called to be? When will this place feel like home? If I've learned anything, I've learned that this Earth is not home, heaven is home. Until that day that I am reunited with my grandpa in heaven (home) I must go through this life trying to live out what I've been called to do, my purpose. (Jer 29:11) Whether I completely understand it our not doesn't really matter because as they say "Thats life."

This summer was, wow, so busy I wonder how I even had time to sleep. Weddings seemed to be the theme and I happily partook in all the festivities. Casey, Beth, Teeda, Lindsay, Doug and the list goes on and on and on..... Throw in vacation, working overtime, concerts, its a wonder I even got to follow baseball season this summer. Now, its mid September and I'm thinking to myself "holy crap its going to snow soon and I barely got a tan!" (well maybe I'm just thinking this summer went really fast but I do look a little pasty for September)
I've missed so many writing opportunities because I was just flying through life. I can think of about 8 stories I want to write but know that in reality, the moment has passed and I won't do them justice. I can, however, inform you that I've joined Farrells kickboxing so there's bound to be some funny stories from my experience. In fact, I'm pretty sure after I'm done writing this I'm not going to be able to get up off the couch because my muscles have decided to cramp up and my legs won't move. Awesome right.
What I'm hoping for the fall is that I can write a little more, catch some episodes of The Office, watch the Hawkeyes dominate, have fun with my friends, and take time to enjoy life. Maybe I'll read a good book or two, if I have time. So, bring it on fall. I'm inspired!

So what’s more difficult, Lauer asked, a must-make shot on the golf course, or changing a dirty diaper without any spills?
“Number two,” Woods laughed. “Literally.”

The best, I must say, is the exit. You've got those people who take a decent step off to make sure all shoelaces and extremities are clear of the stair before it gets sucked down into the unknown; then theres those who ride it all the way to the end, again, slowing down those riders behind them which once again, is always funny to watch.
But today, I witnessed something that I'd never seen before. I watched a lady get on to the escalator and ride it smoothly down but as she neared the end, I could see the tension start to build. Do I go now, wait, no now, no.... Finally, she just leaped off it! And I'm not talking a small leap, this lady literally hurled herself off the escalator. If escalator exiting were an olympic sport, she would be in the top running for farthest jump. It was amazing. I burst out laughing and then quickly realized that I was that person walking in the mall who is laughing to themselves and people look at you all awkward. But today, I didnt care. I laughed all the way out the door.
btw. whats up with those kids who race up the down escalators? (oh wait, i was totally one of them!)

The Borretts, how cute! Beth finally married Blake after what seemed like a fairly long courtship. I've never seen her happier than the day of her wedding. She was a beautiful bride and I'm so happy for her!
Thursday night was the bachelorette party which is always fun. We took the party van (aka Agrimson family vacation van) and Jenna being the sweetheart that she is opted to drive. We hit the town, Cedar Rapids that is, and pretty much brought the party to wherever we were. It was a blast. I loved having Teeda and Kmart in town as well. Crazy girls!
Friday morning we went and checked on the flowers, decorated the church, and ran some errands. Friday night was the rehearsal and the dinner at the Coe Alumni House. It was a beautiful little building with a garden out back. So pretty! After the dinner, we all went back to Beth's parents house to roast smores. YUM
Saturday, the big day. We all got our hair done and then headed to the church to get ready. Pictures, pictures, pictures..... but you know me, I love pictures. Then came time for the wedding and thankfully, I held it together as best as I could ( I only cried a little) Beth looks absolutely gorgeous and Blake looked oh so handsome. After the wedding, the LIMO! We took some more pictures and then headed to the Marriott for the dinner and then party time! I danced my little shoes off, it was such a blast.
Sunday was the brunch and gift opening at Beth's parents. From there we all said goodbye and went home to recover from the fun, exhausting, exciting weekend. In less than 1 month, I get to do it all over again for Teedas. YEAH!!
As it has been pointed out to me (many times) I'm the last one of the fab 4 to be married. Looks like my wedding will have to be over the top whenever that day comes.....!

Jane was there, sitting in a little booth because apparently she was my tour manager (or personal assistant). Turns out I was the opening act for Matt Wertz. David Wright was performing after me, although what he was performing I'm unsure since he's a baseball player. Anyways, about 15 minutes before the show I realized that I had one of Matt Wertz song as part of my set. Since I was opening for him, I didnt think it was wise to sing one of his own songs. SO, I started with a Bethany Dillon song and when that was done, I kind of freaked for a second. No fear, I recovered quite nicely. I decided I would just have to improv and make up a song as I went along. Let me tell you, this song would have won me the Grammy. I wish I could have remembered the words or even the melody because seriously, it was awesome! I was called I Need You ( I think) but I know it was about Jesus so of course it was good! I was so impressed with myself that I was making up this song as I went along that I just belted it out. Instantly the crowd turned from about 40 to about 400 and I was on this massive stage. Or at least it felt like it b/c I was singing with my eyes shut. The crowd cheered so loud and I was so excited that I opened my eyes to see them and yup, I woke up. End dream....
It was an awesome dream but then it hit me that I'm not a recording artist touring with Matt Wertz. bummer.

Every summer I struggle with the feeling that I shouldn't be in Des Moines but inside a barn that is hotter than hades, surrounded by kids dressed in crazy costumes who havent showered, singing songs at the top of your lungs, sweating all day long, working alongside the greatest friends who would do anything for you, being led by directors who I strive to model my life after, did I mention sweating all day long, all while praising the Lord. It must be kamp time!
This past Memorial weekend I got the privilage to spend some time at the Kountryside visiting friends and having a great time. Janie and I watched some movies, baked some cookies, laughed a lot, you know, the norm. I love that girl. No matter how far apart we live or how often we talk, her friendship is like no other. I've been gone a day and I miss her already. But enough about Jane, she knows shes cool!
I got to spend some quality time with friends I see about once a year. So naturally, I have to take advantage of it when I can. Sarah B, the sweetest girl on this planet and also really funny. Shes got some great stories which, wow, I laugh my head off every time. The Bretts - McLaughlin and Myles - quality guys with quality hearts. McL knows he's got the rhythm that makes the ladies go crazy and Myles, I just love to talk baseball with him! I can't say enough good things about them. Heather - love her! I definitely dont see her enough. Lundeen - my most favorite blond, marathon star, swedish, auburn alum, law student friend. Its always a good time when Lundeens around. We have the greatest conversations talking about nothing. What I love about the Sache is that we can laugh at anything. This girl doesn't know how much I love her friendship. Rudy, oh Rudy, what a guy, what a pal. The only thing I dislike about Rudy is that he's a Cardinals fan and that pretty much sums it up! Jason, my best friend, if only he could be me for 2 seconds to see himself and how much he's changed in the past 2 years. (did that sound weird?). He's super motivated to run all these races and do some iron mans and I have all the faith in the world that he can do it. Me, I'll be that friend rooting him on at the finishline :) Jason's another who I dont think realizes what a great friend he is to me. Katie H, I could hug that girl every day! Then there's Katie and Pete and little ryles. They are a great inspiration, they challenge me to be a better person, and I will always have a special place in my heart for the Newman family.
K-Kountry is a place where I've met some of my best friends, where kids have impacted my life more than I realize, and I've come to know the Lord in way that I never thought possible. God is so good.

I about lost it!

I woke up bright and early this morning to a bird chirping outside my window. It really was a pleasant sound. I got ready for work slowly with no rush so that I would just feel relaxed when I came in to work today. My coworkers bought me flowers and all day I felt like I was sitting in a meadow with the smell of spring flowers all around me.
One of my coworkers brought in pastries for everyone so I got a dutch letter. Oh so tasty! We also played a little catchphrase which is always a welcome break. Tonight I went to my cousins graduation and got to see all of my family. Its still hard for me not having my grandpa there but I know he's with the Lord and he's happy.
I will take time today to appreciate everything. My family, my friends, the weather, the tv show The Office, good food, etc. :) It’s a great day to be alive. I'm so glad I was birthed on this day, 24 years prior. Happy Birthday to me.
Music of the Day: Justin Timberlake all day long
Weather: A mazing!
Dessert: it’s a dessert day all day long!

Today we are going to paint pottery. How fun will that be. I will have to put my creative skills to the test to try to wow my boss (probably not going to happen as she's very crafty). I always enjoy our little team events. Lunch out on the town, a fun little activity, great conversation. What a way to spend this lovely hump day. I'm usually not a fan of Wednesdays but this Wednesday means its just one day closer to the big birthday. Enjoy your day, peace out brussel sprouts.
Artist of the Day: Hanson (yes I said hanson)
Weather: Glorious sunshine with a bit of a breeze
Dessert: I'm treating myself to a bagel from Brueggers! I had a little ice cream too!

Tonight I wilst return my library books, then head home for some American Idol and Gilmore Girls Series Finale. I'm sure it will end how we all expected it to. What a run those gilmores have had. Today I chose to wear a skirt and my pink polo. I kind of wish I had a headband in but I was running really late this morning and did not have time to really get ready at all. Whoops. Oh well. Its Tuesday….only a few days more till the weekend.
CD/Artist of the Day - Matt Wertz
Dessert of the Day: Dark Chocolate kisses baby!
Monday, May 14, 2007
Tonight I have blowout Klub for Klife which is always fun. We have a challenge course all set up which always makes for an interesting evening. Then Runs House! Whats more exciting than that.

I become easily obsessed with things (don’t let that scare you, it’s always healthy obsessions - although that may be an oxymoron)
I think people who want to run marathons are crazy, but secretly, I'm jealous of them
I've seen justin timberlake in concert 6 times, and counting….
I find those awkward moments in life hilarious
Life would be a lot more exciting if people broke out in random song from time to time
A dream of mine is to be in a completely random place and suddenly everyone there knows the choreography to a dance and starts doing it, kind of like high school musical or grease
I have really bad posture and every day I fight to not bite my nails
I'm a whiz at Wheel of Fortune
The word "moist" grosses me out
I'd rather go to a musical than to a movie
I make To Do Lists with things I've already done, just so I can check them off
I want to live by the ocean some day but vacation in the mountains
I can talk for hours and hours, but I'm also a great listener
My parents used to call me megaphone when I was little because I would never shut up
I have more energy than a 3rd grader. I can never sit still. Ever since I was 5, I've had this problem when I start laughing and I'm supposed to be serious, its almost impossible for me to stop.
Dark liquids make me nervous
I love to read all kinds of books
People would describe me as a happy person with a good heart
Im a huge iowa hawkeyes fan
I absolutely love rollercoasters
I've always wanted the power to move things with my mind (and one time I thought I could)
I have an addiction to music.
I'm going to be a great mom some day
I feel a great sense of accomplishment when I can complete a crossword puzzle by myself
I notice the little things in life, and I enjoy them….
I expect guys to open the door for ladies
I'm close with my family yet I don’t see them that often
I value friendship more than you know
I enjoy that my life is random
I say I'll try anything once
I love christmas carols and classic hymns.
I'm a shopaholic who knows how to budget and save
I've got personality for days
and I think thats just about it..... for now!
Monday, April 16, 2007
I'm finding myself at a loss for words and the funny thing is it's okay
The last thing I need is to be hear but to hear what You would say
World of God speak, would you pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see, your majesty
To be still and know that you're in this place
Please let me stay and rest in your holiness
Word of God speak
I'm finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with you and in the quiet hear your voice
Word of God Speak......
I'm finding myself at a loss for words and the funny thing is, it;s okay.

It takes 'normal guy' to slay Tiger
Opinion: In the final analysis, this Masters that made no sense makes perfect sense. That is, Zach Johnson makes perfect sense._ "I'm just a Midwest guy from Cedar Rapids, Iowa," Johnson. "Just a normal guy. That's what it's all about."
And this is why I'm a fan….
Johnson blessed to win on Easter
Zach Johnson will take a win at the Masters any day. That he did it on Easter made it even more special.
During Easter, my entire family was watching the tournament. My aunt, throughout the tournament yesterday, kept commenting on Zach b/c she knew we were big fans of him. She kept saying things like "Jill, why aren't you married to him? I mean come on, you should be in georgia with him" "Why didn't you go after that guy?"
My response: "well, that would be nice but I think he's married"
My aunt "Well I dont care about that. Hes going to win the Masters!"
My response - "haha, true..."
Later at the end when he won and he was kissing his baby and hugging his wife
my aunt : "On second thought, maybe you shouldn't go for him
my response :well maybe I could be their nanny!
Sunday, April 08, 2007
Zach Johnson wins the Masters!!! I could not be more excited!! I feel so proud and happy for him. The entire Trost family (and extended family) was glued to the tv waiting for Zach to win, cheering him on! It was just a great Masters. Yeah Zach!! Congrats!

So my Dad and I had a little heart to heart on our way home from Chicago tonight. And by heart to heart, I mean we talked about who we thought was a better baseball player, David Wright or Joe Mauer. I'm a big David Wright fan (for obvious reasons) so I naturally think he's the better baseball player. At 24 years old, he plays a wicked third baseman wearing that number 5. With 67 homers to his nameand .311 average, whats not to love. But, my Dad knows more about baseball than anyone I know. So when he has an opinion, I generally listen. Joe Mauer had a pretty good year last year so I guess I'll give him that. We'll just see how this year goes for him..... But I do love my Mr. Wright!

I was in target picking up a few groceries for a chili making event, when I rounded the corner of the aisle and a little girl by the name of Annika was spinning in the aisle (or twirling, whatever your personal preference is). Her mother says to her "Annika, stop dancing"
Annika's reply, "Mom" (and she keeps on twirling)
Annikas mom: You can dance when we get home
Annika: " But mom, I dance….. Because the song…. Is in my head!" (she says this in a loving way, you could tell the passion in her voice)
I was like YES! I gave her a little wink and I walked on by. I had a smile on my face for the rest of the time I was in target. That little girl, wow, what a future she will have! If only we were inducting new members into Adagio. Its that kind of passion that we need and dedication that we strive for. Think about the reasons you dance, ponder that thought, and the next time you hear the music in your head, just dance!
for my fellow adagio membersa

I try to read my book but even that lasts only so long. I did a little spring cleaning in my room, checked my email, organized some bills, checked my email, turned on the tv in hopes that something interesting was on (there wasn't), checked my email, made myself a snack, and here I am. I think I'll give my book another go. I guess there really is no point to this little blog except that I'm wasting time trying to pass the hours. More importantly, I'm just ready for summer when I can go sit out in the sun or take a walk. I never seem to be bored in the summer (or sick either!)
Thursday, March 01, 2007
But hey, I'm only 23 and that seems like a ways off for me at this point. I guess I dont have to worry about becoming my mother quite yet. But, if someday God molds me in to half of the lady that she is, I'll be happy. With that, I think I'll go call my mom! Yeah, I love my mom.
ps. No kidding, during this little snow storm that we have going on here, my mom has consistently called me to make sure I'm okay. I'm like, "yes, I'm at my house, I'm safe"... everytime.

Dear Baby Nixon,
You are the cutest little thing I have ever seen. I just want to cry when I see your precious little face. You're so content curled up in that little ball resting on my stomach. To see your parents look at you and smile, it brings joy to my life. What an awesome gift God has given. You look so much like your father, I can tell we're going to be great friends. This is my prayer for you, that the Lord will protect you on your walk through this thing called life. The He will guide your every step, bless your every though, and grant you your heart's desire. No dream is too small, no heart is too big. Honor your parents, smile often, and laugh as much as you can. "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Romans 12:2
I cant wait to watch you grow up! Love, Jill

-- I look forward to baking on the weekends
-- you can often find me reading a great book
-- wheel of fortune isn't a challenge
-- some days I'm an emotional wreck
-- i plan my grocery list in the order of which aisles I will go down
-- I bought a Jim Brickman cd
And how I really know I am turning into my mother: I rushed home from the gym the other night to catch the end of a Lifetime Original Movie (mind you, I had already seen the movie twice!)

Well, the other day I was driving, singing along to Beyonce (not an easy task) and I came to a stop light. I was in midsong when I looked to the left (how ironic) and there was a 20 something guy performing his own American Idol audition to Beyonce. I mean, we're talking hand jestures, emotions, everything. My eyes had never seen something so strangely hilarious. He had no clue that I was staring right at him and something tells me that even if he did, he wouldn't care. The light turned green and he raced off and I was just sitting there, wondering what I had just witnessed.
It's moments like that which really make my day. I'm sure I'll never see that guy again (you never know b/c WDM isn't that big) but he gave me my laugh for the day and for that, I am grateful. How many people have seen me singing in my car and wondered what in the world I was doing? My first reaction, whenever I'm caught singing is instant embarassment, but you know, they're probably going to go tell their friends what they just saw (kind of like I just did) and that really makes it all worth it. I guess its my ability to laugh at myself that makes me who I am. That's probably one of the greatest blessings.

As much as I'd like to claim the title of bringing sexy back, this blog is far from it. Over the past couple of months, the blog has slipped and been victim to random posts of other peoples articles, games, and interesting internet quotes. It became more of a miscellaneous hodge podge if you will. I'm not saying that back in the day my posts followed a particular order and weren't random but way back when, I actually gave them some thought. SO, I'm here today to annouce that I'm back! New laptop in hand, a fresh batch of new music for inspiration, and a world of possibilities for topics. You still may see some random posts from time to time (probably more often that not) but at least it'll be me behind it. I wish I could fill these pages with the quick wit of sachie or even quote the comic genius that calls herself Tbone. But its jill the thrill that you'll have to settle with and I'm here to say, it feels good to be writing again! Stay tuned!!

When did haters scratch Justin Timberlake off the list of celebrities to loath? And even more importantly, how did this former Mouseketeer and 'N Sync veteran gain the respect of even the most dedicated naysayers?

To all my favorite Hawkeye fans, I thought I should pass this important news on to you all:
Federal Investigators suspend ISU Football Practice
(Ames, IA)--Iowa State Cyclones football practice was delayed nearly two
hours today after player reported finding an unknown white powdery
substance on the practice field.
Practice was immediately suspended and the police and federal investigators
were called. After a complete analysis, FBI forensic experts determined
that the white substance unknown to Cyclone players was the GOAL LINE.
Practice resumed after special agents decided the team was unlikely to
encounter the substance again.
