We came out alive

So last night i went to a cornmaze. I have never been to a cornmaze in my life, but it sounded like fun. Well, as much as walking around a giant cornfield and getting lost could be. I am not the type of person that likes to get lost. After my dad lost me at a baseball game when i was little, i like to know where i am and exactly why i am there. That's probably why i can remember directions so well sometimes, so if i get stranded i know my way out. Anyway, in a cornfield, there aren't too many distinct landmarks. The only thing that let us know we were even going the right way was occasionally we would stumble upon a white post with a red number on it. When we passed post number 6 for the second time i was getting a little nervous. We did make it out alive. No one killed us and we didn't kill each other although there were a few times we were getting close. It would have been so much more fun if it had been haunted. You know people dressed up in scary costumes that jump out and scare you so bad you wet yourself . We did successfully make it out and back on the buses to go back to the dorms. i slept past my alarm this morning which meant i had about 30 minutes to get ready for visitation. It is a hair up day. I never used to wear my hair up cause of the super retarded birthmark i have on the side of my neck. I still don't like hair up days, but they're my only option when i wake up late....or my roommate or my RA takes forever in the shower. Well, gotta go got a bunch of stuff to do.

Too tired to be held responsible!

So right now i am sitting at the library, and i am irritated. Maybe i'm easily irritated because i am cranky after being with children all day, or maybe it is because i am a tired college student who never gets any sleep, but sometimes i am just irritated by retarded ppl. Wow, you know you are tired when you randomly break out singing oldies in the middle of the library...whispering of course. Lauren just looked at me funny. No she's not the one irritating me, and Amber's not here, she's working. It's wierd without her here...kinda like we have an imposter for a third or something.

This picture is just one i liked (well except for heather's eyes being closed). Heather and Amber are awesome. I am going to miss them so much when they graduate. They are such punks they think that just because they got here a year before me they can leave a year before me. Just kidding love 'em to death.

So today i got my evaluation at work. It was really pretty good, but i don't think i am getting a raise. Boo!!! I got mostly excellents and a few satisfactories, but that's life.

Ok well, i am at the library so i guess i should get some studying done...ugh. O yeah! Lauren agrees with me on the whole Milky Way is so much better than snickers thing.

Lights out came early

So the year has really started now. Last night we had a storm, and of course, like any time a squirrel trips over the power line, we lost power. It was a Monday know, a study hours night. I am not going to take time here to explain the pointlessness and idiocy of study hours, but some day i will enlighten you as to why trying to study in a dorm of 40 girls when every girl is forced to be there is impossible. Anyway, last time i checked, the purpose of study hours, as futile as they may be is to study, so my friends and i went somewhere that homework could actually be accomplished. We tried to go to Buddy's, but the power outage was affecting them as well, so we tried Krystal's, but the only empty outlets were on the ceiling. Our final stop was McAlister's where one of the hundred other Crownies there gave up their outlet to let us plug in. I do have a suggestion for anyone out there that is considering getting WiFi for their establishment...GET MORE THAN ONE OUTLET!!!!!

Anyway, the power did come back on (much faster than normal), and all of my assingments were completed...i was up pretty late and i am exhausted, but they were done. And we did ind out the reason for the power outage on our way out when we almost hit the tree that had come down on the power lines. Well, i'm off to work and sick children. I did have a really good picture of a rainbow, but o well, it won't post.

Tears and heartache

What happens to people???

Why is it that some people live for God forever and then turn and run so far away from Him that you can never tell they were ever close to Him...i guess its that verse in 2 pet. 2:20, "For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning." It just breaks my heart. I just want to cry. Sorry i just saw some stuff from some people i used to really love that just hit me like a 600lb brick in the face. I just pray that it never happens to me. I never want to be known as the girl that "used to live for God," or that girl that "was on fire once upon a time." I know that no one is above falling and only by the grace of God i am what i am. I am still praying for them, and i still want them to come back. It seems like to me once you know what is wrong and you do it, you feel so rotten that you do it more just cause you want to be numb. but once they are numb they do it so they can feel something.

Why is it that when we have everything we need, we aren't happy with it, and we just want what the world can offer? I do it too. I always think that the grass is greener. The world is always happier...until their "sin for a season" is over. Why is waiting for what God has so hard??? Why are we so impatient as a human race...i get so depressed thinking about it....i know God is crying too.

***pray for a girl at school she has had 2 seizures today...she is a freshman and it has to be really scary for her and her parents.***

Any suggestions???

Ok people, i need help!!! I need some way to stay awake in class. I don't want to eat candy, and since the crack down on internet use in class, i can't surf the web either. I really don't know what to do. I have Mr. Britton at 7:30 in the morning, and for the life of me i can't stay awake. I tried the breathing deeply thing. I've tried drawing, and writing letters. I've even tried pinching myself. Any suggestions??? Please help...i look like a total doofus when i'm sleeping and i really don't want to entertain my classmates that way.

Love is in the Air

A lot has happened since i got back to school. I've started work, got a C on my first test and measurements test, have gotten sick, and i've finally found a boyfriend. Ok, so maybe i haven't found the boyfriend yet (anyone who knows me knows that's not true, but if you're wondering why look at the pic...jk, i'm not feeling down and low right now, just a little sarcastic), and to be honest, i'm not really looking...eventually it'll happen, or a Baptist convent will open. However, not everyone is having my problem. My little brother, the one that has been here for about 3 weeks, has found a "friend." Yeah, he is one of those freshman who gets here and finds the love of his life in the first month. Just kidding, they aren't that bad, they are just "talking" a little, but as his sister it is my duty to pick on him a little. I am pretty sick right now, but of course i can't call in cause i have to go to work, which is the reason i am sick in the first place. Being sick is the reason i got a C on my Tests and measurements class, instead of going back to my dorm and reading the chapters, i went and slept...but trust me sleeping was almost worth getting a C (but not quite). I am also blaming the fact that this is a britton class, so pretty much everything is to blame except my lack of self-motivation

Anyhoo...i have a ton of reading to do, and not enough time in the day to do it, and i have to leave for work in about 30 min. LEAVE A COMMENT!!! SAY ANYTHING (within reason)!!! I feel like i am writing to myself...

Back in the swing of things

So i've been here for a little over 2 weeks and i am finally getting back into the swing of things. I am back at work and wiping snotty noses, and i am procrastinating my way through classes. We went to Sara's house this week to see sara and maddie. The movie and yummy food was a definite plus. Here is a nice picture of amber lounging around. I would have put my pic of lauren, but i decided our friendship was more important. We had a blast and it was a nice last hurrah before my first day of work.

Work has been pretty eventful so far, and i've only been back for three days. Yesterday, i think i got the girl i work with fired...not that she didn't deserve it and my boss wasn't already considering it, but i felt kinda bad anyway.

Amber and i went to the Powell football game last night and it was a lot of fun. The game was pretty pathetic, but the marching band was pretty cool...small, but cool. When the majorettes started juggling flaming batons, i was pretty impressed. However, i started thinking about how shocked all the poor homeschool kids were when the high school dancers and cheerleaders came out dressed in...well, traditional cheerleading attire...pretty much nothing.

Retreat Pics

Well, not much time but i just wanted to post some pictures from this week at the retreat...class starts in four minutes and i am really trying to be good this year about no being on the internet...and since this is the third day of classes...better keep it up. The other picture is a random one from the mall...and please ignore my hair in the retreat was raining...ugh
