*catches breath*

Hello All! (Basically just Anna and my Mom. Haha).

I'm at work, and for once I don't need to be working on homework! I only have a couple assignments left. I turned in a big psychology project today (20 pages total! It's probably one of the longest projects/papers I've ever done.) All I have left is my capstone Christian Ministry paper for Evangelism and Discipleship. I'm going to start working on it tonight and work on it a little bit at a time and hopefully have it knocked out by the weekend. Then I'm DONE with school. The last day of official classes is on Friday, and then a week of finals. I'm pretty sure I won't have to take any finals, so that means i'm pretty much done after Friday. That is such a relief! Then I can start getting excited about Australia. My plans for next week include packing and doing a thorough deep clean of the apartment. My family is coming in that week, and I've been so busy I haven't been able to clean as much as is probably necessary. It was all I could do to make sure I was keeping things tidied up. So I'm going to go all out and spend a day cleaning. Wipe down the fans, blinds, dust everything, move furniture and vacuum, and start organizing some of my school crap. Regardless of where we end up, I'm going to have to move fairly soon, so the more I can organize and clean now the less I'll have to to later (hopefully).

Today in Chapel I won the "Outstanding Student" of the Bible department, along with my good friend Katie. It was kind of a fun time to be recognized. Someone other than myself realized how hard I've been working these last couple of years! I had a lot of friends who also won Awards. Laura was recognized as Student Teacher of the Year for her certification level, Abe was recognized as outstanding student of the Engineering department, Kelley was recognized as outstanding Senior Woman award... And most of my friends were put in Who's Who Among American Colleges. So it was pretty cool that so many of us were good students. I knew we were all smarty pants! Haha.

I am getting excited for my family to come in. I am hoping my family will at least be able to meet Anna's family, even if it's just for a few minutes. I mean, our moms are facebook friends so they should meet in real life, don't you think? I'm thinking that Brad and I should go back up to the farm sometime. It was a lot of fun last time we were up there for Anna and Jeremy's wedding. It's pleasant up there.

In other news, Brad is going to be Best Man in our friend's (Jon Martin and Jessie Swingle) wedding. They haven't set a date yet, but i'm guessing sometime next spring. I'm also guessing they'll get married in Virginia Beach, so depending on where life puts us, we know we'll be going up there sometime in the spring! Haha. I'm pretty excited for them. They've been dating for a long time (their freshman year), so it's going to be so fun to watch them get married. :)

Anyway, I should get back to work.

I thought I would post a quick update before I go to class. I probably should be working on other things but the truth is I'm tired and don't want to. I've been really busy lately trying to get projects, assignments, and tests done. I've also been putting a lot of time in for the play. The show opens on Thursday night. I'm performing the Friday and Sunday shows, and I'm extremely excited about it. It's going to be awesome, even if some people in administration are not being cooperative. Apparently some of them think the play is too "controversial" and aren't too excited about us actually doing it. Granted, the show has a lot of hefty themes in it, but it isn't a bad show. If they're willing to let YAC play "The Bourne Ultimatum" to the student body, there is no reason we can't do this show. And Security is being totally ridiculous about some stuff. Overall, though, the show is still going to be awesome and people should come see it! It's going to be outside, so i'm interested to see how that turns out. I'm sure it's going to be fine, but it's still a little more nerve wracking than if it had been on a real stage.

Graduation is in 26 days. That's so exciting in a lot of different ways, but it's also incredibly scary. Do you know how much I need to get done between now and then?! I think once the play is over I'm going to be so much more calm about things. I feel like I'm in survival mode when it comes to school work. It's kind of sad though, I mean the play is ending this week then school ends not too much longer. I've really enjoyed my time here at LeTU and it seems really surreal that it's already time to graduate. Where on earth did all the time go?!

I haven't heard anything about that Nannying job I looked into. I think I'm going to give it a couple of days and then email her to see what she's doing with that. I really need to figure out what I should be looking for and doing for after I graduate. I'm really hoping for some sort of Nannying job that's flexible so I can do grad school and work at the same time. I guess we'll see what happens!

I had better get to class. :)
