Facebook Account: Deactivated.

I am proud to say that I finally deactivated my Facebook account. I’m kind of getting sick of cyber social networking. I’d much rather just hang out with you in person. ย (I love that I say that as I’m blogging). ; )

This is going to be a hard transition. Leaving Facebook for any amount of time always is, but I think this just means I’ll have to be extra intentional with people in real life.

It’s Friday night, andย I’m at home. (I’m already being bad about intentionality!) I’m supposed to be out with friends having fun. But, I have a presentation to give on Monday over a paper I haven’t even started. It’s over the First Great Awakening Preachers. Besides knowing the topic, I don’t know where I’m going with it. It’s.. um, yeah…

I’ve come to the conclusion that in college there are two kinds of people: those who get weekends and those who don’t. This year, I’m a person who has only seen a handful of weekends go by that weren’t saturated with schoolwork. I don’t understand the people who can party seven days out of the week and make decent grades. I do homework everyday and am struggling. I’ll just blame it on the ADD. Yep. That’s what it is.

Glass half full stuff: I registered for my last semester of college!!!! ย I have 3 classes that I’m signed up for. My fourth class is my internship which will be determined at a later date. ๐Ÿ˜‰ How exciting!! I’ll be a college grad in less than six months! (That sounded like something off a sleazy online advertisement,ย “Earn your college degree in less than six months!” Can you hear it?)

Anyways, that’s about all the exciting stuff I have for you!

Night sweet world! Go be intentional!


New Article

I wrote another article for my Communications class. To be honest, it wasn’t my best work. I think it sort of sucks. Ha. My topic was married students on campus.

Here‘s the link where you can check it out!

Let me know what you think!


Sunday :)

I’m pretty sure today is my first Sunday on this blog! Happy Sunday everyone! Today was a pretty good day. I went to church at Bethel Brentwood (which is always amazing). I really like that church because I feel like it really has a healthy balance of what the body of Christ looks like. It has old people, young, black, white, Asian, etc. I really, really love that about Bethel. It’s so great!

I got to eat lunch with Jess and her friend Rebekah at McAlister’s. Normally, I’m not too fond of McAlister’s but today it was so darn tasty! This could be due to the fact that I hadn’t eaten since 6:00 p.m. the day before, but instead we’ll give McAlister’s some credit ๐Ÿ™‚

After church and lunch, I had to head back towards my side of the state. I enjoy car rides in the late summer/early fall. Today’s car ride was an adventure. It ended up taking me an extra hour to get home due to traffic. It didn’t help that I’m directionally challenged, and I “enjoy” finding new and creative ways to get lost. However, during that extra hour I did get a chance to listen to a new CD I bought last week.

Here’s a picture from my drive. Tenn. is one of the prettiest states. I promise! (Sorry the quality of the photo stinks. I was using my phone!)

Now, I’m back home. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m about to go to sleep in my new room. It feels weird that this is going to be my home for the next 9 months (possibly more). Before I lived here, I was kind of bouncing around couches until I could move back to this side of the state. And before project, I was bouncing around couches until I left for my trip. To be in one spot for several months feels weird to me! “Is this real life?”-little kid who had teeth pulled.

Well, tomorrow I start my first day of my 2nd to last semester of college. I’m excited for tomorrow and I’m excited to first start my day off with God, and then to spend it in prayer with Aimee. We’re going to be praying hardcore tomorrow. I know both of our hearts are in weird places when it comes to school. It’ll be nice to have a friend who understands that!

Anywho, Wish me luck! Pray that I actually get up on time and make it there! ๐Ÿ™‚
