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.
