EDIT: I forgot to mention we now have two pet rocks: Manfred and Chris. Yes, Chris Rock.

If you have delayed because you have some questions about the trip, please feel free to contact us at any time.

Are you kidding me? I sent them an e-mail asking why they would tell me I’m not allowed to go if they don’t want me to miss out on this incredible opportunity. I also found out that they accept Christians of Jewish descent. Psh.

Danielle decided to move home next year, so I am without someone to live with next year. I have to live off campus, so I have to find someone. I have no idea who to ask. I hope I find someone. I cannot take living on campus another year. I’m so sick of the dorm food.

So if you are one of those people that watches your friends page on Facebook like a hawk, you probably saw that mine says I am in a relationship. And, if you are like everyone else I have heard from, you did not read my About Me section, which explains that I am not actually in a relationship. This book I am reading for family group…last week’s reading really spoke to me. “But God has also made us relational. We have been made to long for others, giving and receiving love and intimacy. It’s just that we have lost perspective. We’ve misunderstood the design. Wholeness comes from God, not from any other relationship or thing or feeling. Don’t get me wrong. Relationships, things, and feelings are great. As a matter of fact, they can be wonderful. It’s just that all by themselves, they will never fill you up. They will never be enough to make you feel whole. Remember? You have been made by God, for God, and apart from Him there will always be emptiness in your soul.” I really need to work on my relationship with God. As much as I like to think I have, I know I have never really put Him first. I’ve always been very bad about that. I can’t even take five seconds to pray before I eat because I’m so hungry. Well that is going to change. I put “in a relationship” on Facebook and MySpace to remind myself. And I’m not looking to date anytime soon so I don’t care about scaring someone off cuz they think I’m in a relationship, and even if I was wanting to date, it wouldn’t matter because this is more important. And this is something I need to change NOW. And I’ve known that for a while, but I’ve been bad with it and I just got hit real hard this week and I can’t put it off anymore. And I feel so bad for not changing it when I knew it needed to be changed. And it’s completely my fault. And I know that.

I also dropped my methods class. I’ll try again next semester. This is the last class I will be able to drop ever or else I will be in summer school summer 2008 ugh. But the papers were stressing me out and I just couldn’t motivate myself enough to do even one of them, so now I have more time to work on my relationship with God instead of arguing with Him about when I’m going to write my papers. And I’ll try again next semester when I’ve fixed my relationship with God. I have also been upset the past week and I dropped my class and all of a sudden I’m happy again. So yay.

Over Thanksgiving break I am hoping to make some videos with Drew. Everyone is always making videos and posting them on Xanga and YouTube and I don’t get to be part of them, so I am excited for this. He wants to make my Life Cereal commercial, and maybe we can do my Subway one too, as well as some improv. Yay so excited!

I am getting sick everytime I eat now. It’s not just dorm food, it’s off campus food too. I don’t know what to do. I can’t go to health services, because they won’t help, and the ER is too espensive. I don’t know what to do.

Tonight we ordered Monicals and they messed up our order. So I called and was expecting nothing, but they actually sent us the correct food at no extra charge, and the manager said he would get it to us ASAP and if he couldn’t find anyone to bring it, he would bring it to us himself. And it made me happy. Yay for nice people.


You Are A Realistic Romantic


It’s easy for you to get swept away by romance…

But you’ve done a pretty good job keeping perspective.

You’re still taken in by love poems and sunsets

You just don’t fall for every dreamy pick up line!

Matthew and Adam got me hooked on The Office. Even though last night’s episode wasn’t very funny. If you have never seen this show, you should. I’ll give you one reason why:
