MLK Day

It’s Monday, and SWU is the only school in the area in session today. What fun.

It’s been a really good day so far. I got my reading done (barely) in time for English class and I understood the discussion for the most part. I got a lot of handouts and notes printed for English and Biology, and I finally got all the signatures needed to drop my math class. I was signed up for too many hours, but I’m a little worried that I’ll forget a lot of math basics and such before next semester.

I also talked to a professor about what I’d have to do to minor in English. I’m interested in that, missions, or ESL as minors, but I’m not sure what God wants me to do at this point. I’m not going to take any action on that untill next semester. One of the RAs in Stu-B is trying to talk me into trying out for a summer ministry team. I really want to do one at some point during college. They’ve changed the teams around, so I want to see what the new teams are and really pray about it and discuss it with my family before I make a decision. I have also looked into going overseas this summer, and want to look into that more as well.

I have choir and band left today. I’m so excited about the choir music this semester. We did tour in the fall, so this semester will be much more relaxed. Our spring concert this year is a Pops Concert. We’re staging and performing arraingments of music from Joseph and the technicolored dream coat and Le Mis, plus solo and small groups.

Tonight at 7:30 there is a mandolin group doing a concert in Foldger. Everyone shoud come, it’s going to be great!!

Back at SWU

Well, today was my first day of classes. Biology is going to be challenging, but I should do fine if I keep up with things. I’m not sure about American History yet, right now I’m just happy to be in a history class…I’m such a dork. It’s actually American History II, so it covers the Reconstruction to present (for all the non-history geeks, that’s the end of the civil war in the 1860’s till now). I was in Lifetime Fitness long enough to get my syllabus and for him to tell us that we’re his guneypig class, so our class isn’t going to start meeting till after spring break.

The best part of this schedule is finishing all my classes for the day by 1, and then having the afternoon to get stuff done. If I can make myself focus and get things done during that time, I’ll be alright!

Tonight is the babyshower for a girl I grew up with. I don’t know a lot about the father or what her plans are. Please pray for her, her soon-to-be-born daughter, the father, and their situation. It was weird picking out shower presents for someone younger than me. Her mother is very supportive of her and the baby, and that is a blessing.

life and blogs and my funny-looking cat sleeping next to me

This break has been such an adventure! I hate to do this to my faithful readers (yeah right), but my recent posts are all on my other blog, http://www.xanga.com/joyful_BC.

I’m feeling a bit random as I’m sick and packing to go back to school, over all feeling a bit anti-social and frustrated with myself yet so excited to be getting back to school. I’ll try and be more regular with my posts, both here and on xanga.

Oh, a really cool blog I found here. I actually made a postcard, but haven’t sent it in yet. Check every Sunday when new postcards are published to the site.
