Dear Mom : Lately Around Campus...

Sorry I haven't posted my regular posts lately.
The past two weeks have been extremely busy!
Last week was the hectic week of midterms,
which I got A's on all but one... B in Computer.
Here's Abby and I before taking OT midterm...

On Thursday, before the last day of midterms, a friend cut
my hair and 3 of us took off to chaperone a girl at work.
So we hung out at Panera Bread for 7 hours.
We also took off shopping, eating at Chili's,
and getting a yummy treat at Coldstone!
It was a nice relaxing evening of just girls,
studying, (and going on Facebook again!!)

After the long and studious week, we got a group
together on Saturday to relax and hang out at the Oasis...

We played Catch Phrase and Guesstures,
enjoyed ice cream and soda, and enjoyed kicking back
and just goofing off (without worrying about tests!!)...
Then I played Ashley and Gabriel to a game of carpetball...

Earlier this week, we had a wonderful day of
scattered thunderstorms and pouring rain!!!
It was such a blessing to hear thunder, see clouds,
feel and smell rain, and see a gorgeous rainbow...
This was so big, it literally arched all the way
over campus and you could see both ends of it!!
(But I couldn't snap the whole thing.)

Yesterday, Ashley and I were challenged to learn
how to tie a tie... the reward... $1!! (bought a candy bar!)
Needless to say, after much trial and error,
I finally got down a half windsor! *Ü*
After supper, a few of us hung out at the cafe
studying and chatting around.
Abby and Steve looked at Bill Rice Ranch flyers and
I was helping Markus write his Theology project...

Tomorrow after soulwinning, I'll be headed to my
English Teacher's party at her house!! Yeah!
Then I get back and babysit for a sunday school activity.
Next week's classes are only 25 minutes each! Fun!

Sunday starts our annual Missions Conference,
and I am really excited and can't wait!! *Ü*Ü*Ü*Ü*

Dear Mom...

Sorry, I had a REALLY busy week that I forgot most of what I did.
I also didn't take ANY pictures, so this one is just short and sweet.

Monday, October 4
 Today was a dreaded English test.
The teacher let us out early and she baked us yummy cookies!
I also got to talk to my sister on the phone as it was her birthday.
I spent the day studying, going to work, and hanging out. Ü

Tuesday, October 5
 Normal classes. Speech, Computer, & Intro to College.
Had a quiz in MicroComputer class and think I failed it. Bleh.
Prepared for mid-terms. My mind honestly draws a blank for the rest.

Wednesday, October 6
 Today classes were cut so we could go out door-knocking
for our Open House Sunday at church on the 10th.
My friends and I hit 66 doors! PTL.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing, piano-ing, studying,
and keeping in touch with friends and relatives.
Thursday, October 7
 We were told the date of our Bible Memory speech... next week.
So I picked a passage after having a great "preaching" conversation
at breakfast with a group of friends... and Mrs. Weaver. :-)
In Computer class we started with Microsoft Publisher... me no likie.

Friday, October 8
We had a fun mid-term prep quiz in OT Survey and finished early!
My friends and I studied in Revels & one treated me to a coffee! 
Then I had a Biology quiz and only missed 1 question!
I taught piano, started a new 5 year old student, and went to
the post-office and thrift store to find a nice coat and shirt.
I attempted witnessing to my co-worker but he was very closed.
I am continuing to pray for him and work with him.
I got home and was blessed to be an encouragement to a dear friend. 

Saturday, October 9
 Today I went soulwinning in with Brother Lester's SS group.
After knocking out 70 doors, we were treated to In & Out Burger!!
I came back to study for mid-terms, play piano, fellowship,
and have a wonderful dinner of BBQ ribs!!

Young Maiden's Daybook - October 4

October 4, 2010
Outside my window…

Trees are waving, students are walking around,
the weather is suprisingly beautiful!
I am thinking…
Of the wonderful blessings God gives to His children!
I am thankful…

For my dear sister, Beth, who turned 8 today!
I am wearing...
Black skirt and black/red blouse.

I am reading
The Holy Bible:Proverbs, John, Leviticus;

"Changed Into His Image" by Jim Berg

"Exploring The Scriptures" by John Phillips
I am creating…
A speech file... 10 narratives, 10 illustrations,

10 poems, and 20 quotes;
a summary of a commentary (how's that work?!).
One of my favorite things…

Chapel messages! How they edify & bless the heart!
For education this week…
Old testament Survey, English, Biology,

Microcomputer skills, Christian Womanhood,
Freshman speech, Collegiate Life, and College choir.
A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...

Managing my time well. Even my free time... whatever that is.
A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
Setting standards and yeilding to the Holy Spirit's convicting,
and standing for it even when I have to stand alone.
A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Abiding In HIM!

Scripture I am memorizing…
"And I will put emnity between thee and the woman,
and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy
head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Genesis 3:15
(For Old Testament Survey)
I'm praying for…
Financial provision through college;

Him to reveal His perfect will and help me trust in Him;
His strength (physically and spiritually);
My friends seeking for jobs; For many students to teach;

To get this second job at Sears if He wills it.

For the rest of the week…
School, studying, and sleeping;

canvasing for Open House Sunday;

Biology quiz Friday; preparing for mid-terms next week;
teaching Friday and setting up 2 more students;
spend time with my wonderful Savior;
and whatever else the Lord sees fit to send my way.

Have a great week!

Dear Mom - Week 6

Today was just a normal Monday.
Running around for classes, studying,
and hanging out with friends.
I was really blessed to have someone buy
me a nice big muffin and a coffee!!
Gotta love the coffee shop!
I also enjoyed "squishing" in the couches while
chatting around and studying...

I listened to my classmate's speeches
in Speech class, which some were pretty funny! lol
I vehemently played the piano today and worked on some theory.
I sadly finished off my 2nd bag of Lime chips,
but my roommate and I 'took tea' together as we did our
Grammar homework (that we were struggling with!)...

I actually caught the beautiful sunrise on
my way to breakfast! So pretty!...

After classes, I worked hard on a speech project;
which is a file containing 10 narratives, illustrations,
poems, and 20 quotes. I'm nearly 1/3 done... bleh.
Here we were before evening service... *Ü*

Today was the first day of our Leadership
and Educator's Conference... which was really good!
The college choir had to meet early, so no sleeping in 4 me.
But we sang "Preach The Word", which we really enjoyed!
We were all really excited about seeing clouds today!...

We hoped for some rain, but never got any. :-(
After some studying, I mostly relaxed outside and
I was able to talk to my Aunt Lisa on the phone. Ü
It was such a blessing to me!

Last sessions of Educator's Conference, and we sang
"God's Been Good" for choir... which I LOOOVE!
After lunch, I was off to teach piano at the store.
My co-worker finished my business cards and they're really nice!
I studied for Biology and worked on some Grammar at work.
We enjoyed a thunderstorm and I was SO excited to feel rain!
The sunset was just gorgeous as I sat out and watched it...

We went soulwinning early this morning, came back
and I enjoyed a yummy muffin from the store! Ü
At 1:00 our dorm had a picnic at the park,
which I just got back from a little while ago.
Here's a pic of me and a friend down the hall...

Looking forward to being in God's House tomorrow!
It's Round-Up Sunday with a Wild West stunt
and a chili-cookoff... can't wait!!! :-)
