I spent the morning in a PFY meeting and then at the library for a group project until about noon. Group projects force such interesting dynamics.
I wandered up to the third floor to take some photos of books. Books are good subjects. No blur. Good color. Works in my favor hopefully...
Then I went home to sign my life away with Praxis tests in order to graduate. They cost $300! That's insane. Oh well. It's done. Sure it's a month of rent....but it will allow me to get a job. Someday.
Now for some coffee and Bible Study.
It was one of those weeks that seemed to crawl by. It will probably be a pretty relaxed weekend because we are in the middle of a snow/ice storm. It is supposed to go through Sunday which ultimately means I am hoping Monday classes will be cancelled. The chances of this happening are quite low, but I can't help but wait for the text alert. I could handle another four day week. I am thinking a quiet day at home with coffee and homework surrounding me is on the schedule. It is always a little easier to get lesson plans done when going outside isn't an option. I am hoping Ben will brave the icy roads since he only lives one minute away. His company will help break up the monotony of Homework. I am also reading a book by Elizabeth Elliot which seems to call my name more than homework does. I figure if I trade off a chapter for 30 minutes of homework I will be mildly productive.
Ok...now I'm off to convince Ben to drive me home so I can go to bed :)
Bekah and Ben are in an intense Mario Kart battle so I don't know if I will be successful quite yet.
Very often (nearly always, I'm afraid) when I come to church my feeling are uppermost in my mind. This is natural. We are human, we are "selves," and it takes no effort at all to feel. But worship is not a feeling. Worship is not an experience. Worship is an act, and this takes discipline. We are to worship "in spirit and in truth." Never mind about the feelings, We are to worship in spite of them.
Here is the status...
Two lesson plans...almost done :)
Blog updated to new site.
One cup of coffee
One bagel sandwich
Good chats with Bekah
And now...more homework, but first more coffee? It is happy hour afterall. Why haven't I discovered this earlier? It's probably a good thing though that I was oblivious that coffee happy hours existed.
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see
This semester is going to be a busy one, but nothing that isn't manageable. School has been a part of my life for long enough that not too much phases me. It's always one more assignment, one more paper, one more project. And they always get done one way or another, even if it means staying up til 2am to finish it.
I managed to organize my room a bit, so a result of this is feeling more organized all around. simplify. Simplify.
I have also started my Photo a day goal. So far so good. I am going to have to get creative about what my subjects will be though, something new everyday.
Unfortunately I believe this post is only happening to further put off homework, but I have accepted my procrastination skills. Like I said before, the work always gets done.
Winter break was amazing. Here are a few pics from the week at the cabin. Enjoy!
1.tried my new ice cream maker. yum.
2.registered for the wedding. surprisingly exhausting
3.keeping up on my picture a day so far (day #3 whoop whoop)
4.heading to the cabin on Tuesday with some friends
5.watching Ben plan xbox currently while I am cozy by the fireplace.
I had grand plans of getting a million wedding things done but so far I have done basically nothing. We have a few options for ceremony musicians, save the dates in the work, registered at Target and chose the groomsmen's suits. So...a few things were accomplished, but I had hoped to get the flowers and cake figured out. Life got busy though, and a blizzard in the middle of it all didn't really make me want to be out too much. Oh well, it will all get done.
I think some hot chocolate is in order.
