The Way You Make Me Feel

First, thanks to the boyfriend for a great Valentine's weekend. Good times, and laughter, too. We danced... yes Leanne Womack, we did dance. We danced the Tango and the Rhumboogie with 70 year olds. Top that, I dare ya!

Things here are going well. Today it snowed and so that always makes things a littler dreary. The stress of the papers and the test tomorrow has piled up, but God slipped me a little present last night in my e-mail inbox: both my morning classes were cancelled because both of my profs had the flu! What are the odds? I didn't have even one class cancelled last semester, and now I've had 2-- on the same day! It was great because it was my long day, so I got to sleep an extra hour, workout before class and get all cleaned up, and then get to my lab, which let out early! It was really a good day, despite the snow. Tomorrow's lookin sunny.

I've got the big test in my science course tomorrow- first test of the semester so that's always nerve-wracking, but I've studied, and I'll study a little more before bed, and review in the morning... and then just see what I can do on that mother! I feel like I'm walking in there blindfolded- that always happends with the first test of the class... so we'll see!

I'm finally feeling better, although this morning was a little shaky. It was great, good to have a weekend where I was just wiped out and HAD to sleep... but it wasn't so great to be sick. It's good to hear out of both ears and breath out of both nostrils. So yes, thank you Lord that that's all done with! Now if Josh can just get well! It's goin' around I guess!

I'm off to Italy next Spring.. study abroad for the semester.. so that will be fun. It's not official, but the application is being handed in soon.

This was a very sticky entry, sorry. I'll try and be more creative and exciting next time!

Praise the Lord!

Well! Congrats, if that is the appropriate thing to say, to my love! Your life has truly just begun~

I was looking around today in my city, New York... and I love it here. I truly love it. How will I leave it for 3 whole months this summer? I don't know how I'll stay away- I don't think I will! :) The missions trips this summer might be an excuse for a little visit!

I love it here, I absolutely do. I was walking on Broadway uptown.. I love it up there. It's serene and wonderful, and just... I love it! I LOVE NEW YORK.

Welcome to February!

Happy Black History Month! Yeah!

Well, Brett has come and gone.. we had some real good times. Friday we walked from Wallstreet to Fourteenth street, and folks... that is a REAL long way. But it didn't seem like a long way, so that was good. We went to Ground Zero- that was weird. I mean, good, healing weird, but definitely weird. It was the first time I had been there since they fell, the last time I was there I was sitting at the top of the building at Windows on the World for my sixteenth birthday. wow. Saturday was the Knick's game, and I had SO much fun! We were second to last row and it was just a blast. We saw Fat Joe, that washed up rapper guy who sings who knows what, or maybe he is popular now, I'm not hip with the times. Anyway, things are good, Brett's visit was great. Let it RAIN!

School is going well. New York has finally decided to smile down on us and give us some shun shine! It was forty, and let me tell you how it felt like I was in Mexico in the middle of summer- forty seems balmy compared to the teens we've been braving. Good times. GOod times.

This is radom, but if any of you who are reading this (duh) have any Youth Pastor e-mail addresses let me know. E-mail me. My church (nyJourney) is starting a group called "Epic Adventures" which will be a Center for Student Missions-type missions organization for New York City, Charlotte and D.C. We are trying to contact people across the country and get the awareness out there-- let me know if you can help!

Good night all! Tomorrow I will break the less-than-7-hours sleep time trend! YAY!
