say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight like this city is on fire tonight; this could really be a good life – a good, good life

vacation with the extended family and friends was fabulous. i’m really starting to dread the coming week – school starting again and all that. visiting with family in alabama was great. we celebrated Christmas three times exactly – one at home, second with daddy’s family, and third with mama’s.

and then for new year’s eve, i got to spend it with my best friend and her family! WOOT! fun times. ^_^ it was by far one of the best new year i’ve ever had. ^_^ music was loud and we all dance and sang. maribeth and i stayed up until 2:30 the first night, 4:30 the second night, and then finally pulled the anticipated all-nighter on the last night there.  needless to say, i slept for an awful long time in the car on the way back home! >_<

you – are beautiful! you – so beautiful! you – my beautiful! nothing better than you!

i’m. so. sleepy.  i’ve been terrible at going to bed at a decent hour these past few nights.  last week, i even pulled an all-nighter in order to finish a paper.  since then, i’ve been to bed once at a decent hour. like, at nine.  i think the lack of sleep is catching up with me.  i was excited about going home this last weekend (william and his dad visited from colorado! :D) and i was hopeful about getting some sleeping in, but alas! none. :(  so, with that said, i’m going to behave tonight and go to sleep. like, now.

the sky yesterday evening was s a fluffy, romantic mess filled with pink, orange, and purple hues.  it made me happy to walk in the crisp, cold weather from the student center back to my dorm… it was beautiful. i really wish i had my camera with me at the time, the sky changes colors so quickly! *sigh* anyway.

last weekend i was able to go home and see john in his second basketball game! :) it was exciting shtuff :}

because also it was the weekend before halloween, we watched ‘it’s the great pumpkin, charlie brown!’ and made our pumpkin shaped pizzas. :)

halloween itself was an absolute blast i had several friends dressed up like the scooby doo gang, ‘robyn the hood’, and i was a samantha american girl doll.  several people came up to me to ask if i was a samantha doll – which made me happy to know that my character was recognizable. :)  there was also a gal who was dressed as ke$ha and her costume was great!  she looked almost exactly like her. ;)

well, today was fun-filled. :)  i felt well-rested for the majority of the day (which is rare in my day in the life of a college student :P).  i got up at a reasonable time, did laundry, and cleaned my room.  then i went to a football game with my friends sunny and solhee!  our blazers won, 34-17.  let’s go, BU! :)

now i think i need to study… *sigh* i’ve had such a wonderful day and now i have to end it with studying. :P  but, i think it will still be fine… i’m going to cozy up with a cup of hot tea and listen to this beautiful song solhee showed me:

it is such a calming song and it’ll make me happy while i do homework. and maybe i’ll get late visitors who will study with me… yes, even though i have to study, i’m happy. God has blessed me with such a wonderful day and wonderful friends. God is so good. :)

you wanna d – d – d – d – dance? get your dancing shoes!

hello world. :)

i promise i haven’t totally disappeared.  on the contrary, i’m quite alive and well, although i’m also very busy.  school is going well, and i’ve been feeling more confident with my studying and test-taking.  i’m a little nervous for upcoming ones, but i feel really good about what the outcome will be. :)

of late i’ve been having fun with some new friends and catching up with some old ones.  hee, i really do love my peoples here. <3 :)

this last weekend was homecoming.  our football team won (GO BLAZERS! :).  the homecoming dance was fun too – although, because i did not have a dance-able dress, i went in a cute shirt, jean shorts, and black tights.  thus the reason i’m not posting pictures of that. :D  but, i do happen to have a neat picture of the whole party:

it was swell. :) i really do love my peoples here… <3

i started registering for classes next semester.  i felt so confused when i looked at the list of everything i would have to take!  there are so many conflicting classes with what i want to take or what i have to take.  it’s slightly frustrating, but it’ll all work out.

i’ve been dancing a lot lately.  it’s random, but it makes me happy. :}

that was a random statement. :P

tried out a new bible study thingy tonight, which happened to be amazing.  very moving.  they even showed a testimony from lecrae (an amazing rapper).  the music was also very good.  i might go back again next time.  it was a nice way to start off the week. :)

i also wrote my first short story for my creative writing class this last week.  i don’t think it was anything special, but i was happy to have accomplished my third ever short story.  short stories really aren’t my thing.  see – it’s so hard to put a limit on oneself of the number of pages if you really have a good or lengthy plot. :P

been dancing to this song lately. :)

’cause when she sings i hear a symphony, and i’m swallowed in sound as it echoes through me – i’m renewed, oh how i feel alive, and though autumn’s advancing, we’ll stay young, go dancing

ooooh goodness.  i’ve left y’all for a week and two days.  there’s quite a bit that’s happened:

i played in the rain by the pavilion a few weeks ago…

i went to a waffle house for the first time with a study group.  good service and good food, even though the place was pretty ghetto. :P  here’s a picture of me and my friend, katy, at the waffle house:

my brother trey-boy visited over two weekends ago! :)

and then, best of all, i went back home over fall break this last weekend, which was fabulous.  i also finally got my hair trimmed, which is what i needed terribly. anyhoo, the hair stylist also flat ironed my hair which made me happy to posses model-like hair for the next ten hours. :}

i miss my family so much… we watched ‘it’s the great pumpkin, charlie brown’, ate festive foods, and i made caramel apples!  momsy had fall candles placed and lit all over the place.  so no matter where you went in that house, it smelled like pumpkins or apples.  i’m so in a fall mood!

well, today i did two stupid things.

(1) i dropped my computer on it’s charge cord.  thankfully, the computer slid to the floor more so than an actual fall, so the impact wasn’t too bad.  but i’m kind of worried about my charge cord – it was slightly bent and is still like that.  it still works (thank you Lord!) but i’m praying that it doesn’t get a short in it; i can’t afford a new charger, and i haven’t finished all my Christmas shopping yet! :-/ i’d appreciate lots of prayer…

(2) i dropped the heavy corner of a ten pound weight on the end of my finger. yeeeeeoowwwww! although that happened an hour and a half ago and i’ve had it wrapped in ice since then, it hurts. so. bad. :'(  i can’t tell if it’s broken though since my fingers are naturally odd shaped anyway.  dozens of little blood cells are peaking through the top of my finger.  please pray for me on that note as well.

anyway, i thought y’all would be proud to know that  continued my workout without stopping and didn’t cry until i was finished. :P

a happy song i heard the other day :)

rain, rain go away, come again another day – all the world is waiting for the sun.

i don’t want wanna be nobody’s fool – i’ve played that part so many times before; how long to be a shadow on the wall? i will make no sound at all, and when the sun goes down, the shadow on the wall – it cannot be seen at all

hello void. :)

maybe because i’ve suddenly been thrown into the busy, social world of going to school, i want more of it. eh, the social – not the school. ;)  i’ve been getting a lot lonelier faster than i should, i mean.  i had made a few really good friends here and have been lame enough to not try to make anymore friends.  which was/is wrong.  even though it is hard for me to make new friends, i really shouldn’t use that as an excuse while my other friends make friends.  i am happy and content with the peoples i have – not saying that’s a problem – but i’ve shied away from meeting new people.  which isn’t cool, peoples.

and now when my friends are with their friends (not saying that i’m not their friend, they’ve got to make time for them all), i start to feel… lonely (duh).  i hate being selfish.  that’s a big one i’m going to have to work on.  that and being outspoken enough to hug the whole school without feeling embarrassed.  where did that girl go? the one who wanted to be friends with the whole school? the one now who sits shy and quiet in the corner of the world, afraid to shine the light God gave her?

oh bob.  my nose is excessively stuffy tonight.  which doesn’t make for an attractive speaker.  and my nose has been running.  i’m definitely not a ‘looker’.  i don’t have a fever anymore, but my sinuses, oooh my sinuses…

i was studying in the student center (that was past tense, folks ;).  but after the people quieted and left, after piano playing stopped, it was like a spell had been broken.  i’m sitting in a big empty place.  people walk in and out.  but it’s so quiet… it’s so much easier to study with a hum of busy, laughing, swearing (it’s not like you can hear it amid the rest of the chaos, but it’s pretty darn constant :P) people.

this moment is just one of those moments i miss all of my family and friends, and wish that it was christmas vacation.  three months left.

epic quote of the night from meg ryan’s character kathleen kelly from you’ve got mail:

sometimes i wonder about my life. i lead a small life. well, not small, but valuable. and sometimes i wonder, do i do it because i like it, or because i haven’t been brave? so much of what i see reminds me of something i read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? i don’t really want an answer. i just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. so good night, dear void.

she was looking kinda dumb with her finger and her thumb in the shape of an ‘L’ on her forehead

i knew it was coming.

it started maybe on friday.  i sat down to supper and i swallowed – and then i realized, ‘oh snap. my throat’s getting sore’.  it could’ve been anything other than the terrible cold it turned out to be, but i knew it wasn’t.  see, one of my dear friends has a terrible cold too and i’ve been sure to give her lots of hugs (because don’t you hate it that when you’re sick, nobody hugs you so that they don’t get sick too? it’s an awful feeling).  so yeah, i knew the risks.  and now that i have the cold, i’m very grateful that she returned the throat lossanges when she did. :P

i accidentally missed my ride to church because i overslept.  i could have walked to another church, but it looked like rain and i really didn’t want to risk that.  but by divine providence, i heard from sarah who was going to church twenty minutes from when i got up.  so, i put some clothes on that didn’t need ironing and ran out the room in order to go to my first ever non-denominational church service. :)

after lunch, i crashed onto my bed.  i slept and lay there most of the afternoon.  maybe it’s because i’m sick that i feel so drowsy.  my papa came and took me out to dinner, which was fun and nice (i got to get off campus! WOOT! ;).

i was planning on going to the guys’s ‘open hall’ tonight, but i’m seriously not in the mood.  i should be working on my last paper, but i’m just exhausted.  which doesn’t make sense considering i’ve gotten more than enough sleep.  drat – i really need to get laundry done too…

oh bob. i’m just really tired and i’ve got a really bad headache.  hopefully it’ll skip off soon so i don’t have to deal with it this week. :)

anyway the thing is, what i really mean – yours are the sweetest eyes i’ve ever seen

title from: your song sung by ellie goulding

my heart’s a stereo, it beats for you, so listen close; hear my thoughts in every note, oh oh. make me your radio, turn me up when you feel low – this melody was meant for you – just sing along to my stereo

happy labor day weekend, school-kids and work-peoples. :)

yesterday, i packed up my school books, kidnapped my friends sarah and maggie, and took them home with me to port gibson.  we slept in about two hours later than what we are used to this morning and skipped off to natchez.  we found an adorsable coffee shop where we drank and ate different forms of junk food.  across from the coffee shop was an amazing alley – amazing in the sense that it was perfect for a photo shoot.

it was raining and there were big puddles in the street.  while my family went to a furniture store, the girls and i splashed our way to the alley, our cameras out, prepared to capture time with our current technology.



my holiday weekend is going swell so far. :}

oh! and a song which recently was added to my ‘favorites’ list, i hope you enjoy:
