November 1st!

I can't believe it's already November 1st! That means Thanksgiving isn't that far away! Crazy! The National Youth Worker's Convention is coming up in a couple of weeks too, which means I better get going on all my class stuff!

Last night was Halloween (obviously) and every year we do Trick-or-Treat on College street. We decorate dorm lobbies and let the community children come in to play games and get candy. We decorated Thomas Lobby as "under the sea" , it looked really cool. I'll post pictures of that when I go get my camera (I left it in Anna's apartment last night). I do have a picture of Brad and I. We dressed as nerds. Haha. You can't see it in this picture, but we both have our pants rolled up to look like high waters, we're both wearing our high tops with socks sticking out the top, and we have our glasses taped. I had some pencils in my hair too. Here you go:We had to let our true colors show through at least one day of the year. Last night was also an AG Silver concert. They're from Grand Rapids, so that was pretty cool that they came all the way down here. They're not really a "big" name, but they're touring around with Blood Water Mission, raising awareness and money for African villages that do not have access to clean water. They go in and dig wells for these villages and teach them how to do up-keep and how to use it. I think it's pretty cool because it's a sustainable way to help. They're not just walking in there and throwing some bottled water at the village. They say that with 1 dollar you can provide 1 African with clean water for 1 year. We weren't able to donate, unfortunately, but I do think it's a very cool cause.

Well, I need to get going. I need to start on my exegesis paper. I'm going to try to get a good chunk of it done this weekend so I can get it done before Thanksgiving. We'll see if that actually works!
