This week was a pretty good week. No being sick or anything! I took two tests this week, I think I did well on them. They still aren't graded, but I feel really good about them. The tests I took last week one I got a B on and the other I still haven't heard back. Apparently my profs this semester take a long time to grade!

Last night Brad and I went to a highschool football game with some people from Church. It was a pretty boring game, really. It was supposed to be a good game because the other team was supposed to be really good, but White Oak trounced them 55 to 7. It was pretty sad, really. I almost felt like we should give the other team fans their money back.

The rest of the weekend is just business as usual. I have an essay to write for Western Civ and some other minor homework... then the rest is just cleaning the apartment and doing laundry.

I was looking at the National Youth Worker's Convention schedule (you can check it out on and it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. David Crowder is going to lead worship and so is Starfield. Shane and Shane are going to be there... Plus a handful of speakers, half of which I've read their books. So it's going to be fun. It looks like I get to pick some seminars to go to and learn stuff I want to learn about. I'm not entirely sure what exactly I'm going to pick yet because it all looks pretty interesting. I'm going on that in November. The 20th-24th. Then I'll be back for Tuesday the 25th, and then I'm off to North Carolina at noon on the 26th. We'll be up there until Sunday the 30th. It's going to be some busy busy times for me. All that traveling! The good thing is the classes I'm most worried about getting behind in, are actually canceled the days I will be gone. The bible department (so for Romans and Greek) is going to some conference or something, so they'll be gone too. Also, the Wednesday I have to miss Greek to go to Brad's, Dr. Hood is also leaving to travel for Thanksgiving. So that works out... and I'll only be missing one session of Psychology and of Western Civ, so all I have to do is catch up on my reading when I get back. It's really good that it all worked out like that, or I would be dying.

Well, I need to get going on my homework!

Hair Cut!

I really like it. What do you think?

Thank Goodness it's Friday!

Today is friday, and that is good. Today will be a weird day for me though, because I am playing catch up. I was too sick to do anything yesterday, except go to the doctor. So today I have to go meet with a professor, make-up a test, and take a test that was scheduled for today. I'm still not feeling amazing, so I'm forgoing work and in place of that I am catching up with everything. But if I get all caught up today, I won't have to freak out about anything later on! :0)

I think I'm basically ready for my Greek test. I studied a lot yesterday, which is good. I had lots of time to focus on my studying. I also wasted some time watching TV, but you can't just study all the time. That would be boring. :0)

Tomorrow I'm getting my hair cut at 1:30. I'll definitely post a picture after. I'm pretty excited about it. My hair is getting pretty long and it's harder to take care of! And it's always going in my face and that's really annoying. Tomorrow is also another ballroom dancing session. We'll see how I feel, but the plan as of right now is to go to that. I hope I can go, by then I'll have had three days of antibiotics. I've been feeling mostly better, I think half of my problem is unrelated to the illness and more related to everything else.

Talk with you all soon!

We survived Ike!

Well... It wasn't that bad, really. Here's a picture... You can't really see it in this picture, but it's pretty windy. We haven't really been out yet, so I don't know what exactly all the aftermath is, but we haven't discovered anything horribly wrong with our stuff or our immediate surroundings yet.
Other than Ike, nothing too exciting has been happening around here. Just doing the school thing and getting everything ready for that. We had our first yearbook meeting on Thursday, so I'll be starting with that soon. I'm doing the "student" life section, so it should be a lot of fun. I'm really excited for it. :0)

anyway, I need to get going... I have homework I need to start!

This week has been moderately uneventful, which is good I think. Classes seem to be business as usual, nothing hectic yet. I'm still waiting on two of my books... But hopefully they'll be here soon! I'm keeping busy with greek and my other classes. I have a paper due for psychology on Tuesday, but it isn't bad. I think it's only 2-3 pages.

Brad got the car inspected today so we can get it titled tomorrow. It's the last thing on our list of "to-dos" for business type stuff that needs to get done. Brad has been keeping busy with business things and school. So far I think he's liking his classes. He has a lot of homework already, but that's the life of an engineer. Projects are already getting underway, but I think he's having fun. The guys come over to work on homework a lot, which is awesome. They work well together and get it done a lot faster! I think eventually Brad wants to put a big white board up so they can work out problems on it. They like to do that...

This weekend is going to be full of laundry and homework. I guess it's business as usual!

Wow! What a day!

Today was a pretty long day, for some reason. I got pretty tired by dinner time. Part of it is the weather, it's really cloudy. Hurricane Gustav is on his way, but he's been downgraded to a category 1 and we're getting the tail end of it. Basically they're just predicting a lot of rain and a little wind. Nothing like what Lousiana got or anything. They probably won't even cancel classes tomorrow. But he's rolling in slowly but surely.

I also decided not to do the internship I was going to do for the First Year Experience gal. It just seemed out of my knowledge area and too much responsibility for the small amount of time i had to offer. I would have been doing a half-way job instead of a very good job like she expects. She was ok with it and didn't seem too upset about anything. I have, however, decided to help out with year book. With my time freed up from the internship, I can fit in doing some yearbook stuff. I can do it on my own time (weekends and evening) and it pays just a little through out the year. I'm pretty excited about it. It's something i've always wanted to do, but never really had a chance to do... so now i'm going to do it!

Last night we had a little cook out. We had over Jeremy and Anna, Matt, Gordon, Laura, Kelley, and Josiah. We grilled burgers and dogs on our new grill.
He didn't even burn himself up! And the food was pretty good too. We're going to work on grilling chicken next.

I also discovered today that our freezer causes freezer burn pretty quickly. I was a little sad, but I cooked the chicken anyway... It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't the best. How can we prevent freezer burn? Any good ideas?

Anyway, I need to get going to work. I'm hoping the weather holds out until I get back to the apartment!
