Crazy Times Ahead...

So, I finally sat down and thought about how busy I am going to be this semester thanks to school, work, focus group leader respobsibilities, and Collage. I don't really want to complain, because I know I'm going to enjoy everything (well, being a focus group leader and Collage, and maybe sometimes school and work), but boy am I going to be busy...


Every week, Monday-Friday: Work 20 hours, attend classes for 16 hours


Every Sunday: Morning Sunday school and church, AO focus group leader meeting at 5, Focus group at 7 


At least every other Monday: Coram Deo for one hour


Every Wednesday: Collage meeting at 4, AO at 7:45


Weekends: Social/dating life 


One Wednesday a month: Go to AO early for Inreach  


Approx. three times a month: Meet with mentor


Once a month: Meet with Jerel


One week out of semester: Grade submissions for Collage 


Not to mention substantial time outside of class studying, making videos, eating, and sleeping. 


I think this will be my verse this semester...


"Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak." -Matthew 26:41

Well, It's That Time of Year Again...

Yep, that's right... it's that time. It's a week away from school, the big purge day has passed, and I've decided that I really do not want to be in one of the classes I am currently registered for. I bought the books today but while looking at them in the bookstore I was like, wow, I have no interest in this. It's my Social Psychology of Close Relationships class in case you were wondering.


It seems like every semester (with the exception of last semester) I always pick one mediocre class with a mediocre teacher due to judgement lapse, and decide right before school starts back up that  I have no desire to be in there and need to get in another class. The only problem is that any class that does interest me is either taught by someone awful or the time is bad. I really can't move any of my other classes. Well, I could, but I wouldn't be happy with it. With the exception of this one class, I really want to keep my teachers and everything. Nevermind that almost every class is filled... I know I can find my way in there eventually. I just need suggestions.


So here's my situation: I'm already taking two EMC classes, including the one next in line and one of my two electives. I'm satisfied with that. I am taking Principles of Marketing. I would take another marketing class, but unfortunately you can't take any other marketing classes until you've had Principles, which I am going to be taking. And then I have Abnormal Psych, which I know I'll love. If I take another psych class, I can complete my minor in it, but I'm not necessarily in a hurry to do it. There are psych classes I am interested in, but they conflict but my current classes. 


And then outside of those things, I really have no other interests. The only possibility I have really come up with is the first education class you can take, which would be random but I suppose beneficial. The teacher is Rebecca Watts, whom I don't know anything about, but the time is good. Of course, it's filled up. And I may not like it, since that's not really my thing. I don't mind taking a random class, as long as it's either a liberal arts or science class. And by science I mean social science, since I can't stand science science. And I have to be interested in it. I don't want to take a class about Japanese Landscaping or Abstract Thinking or Chinese Philosophy or  The History of Feminisim or anything else of that nature. Oh, and I need to take 15 hours this semester because next semester I will be getting by butt whooped by Mass Media Law and after that I'll be a senior and probably super busy. Suggestions?

Life and Love and Why

Man, what is my problem? Yesterday I was so excited about what's ahead, and today I'm disappointed again. I think the problem is I expect too much out of people. I hold people to the same standard as I hold myself, which is perfection. Thus, I often end up disappointed in myself and in others. I don't want to live that way. I need to realize we are all human beings just trying to work this life out. And I have yet to figure out why there are certain people that I am continually hoping will want to become closer to me only to realize... well... they don't. I guess that's what I get for liking people so much... facing rejection when they don't want to broaden their circle of friends and include me. But whatever. I'm growing more and more thankful each day for those closest to me, and I'm excited about new friendships I am developing.


 I'm also a little excited about school... well... I'm excited about Single Cam and my Intro to Motion Pictures class. I'm a little excited about marketing because I'm curious. I'm actually not excited about my psych classes at all, but this is largely due to the fact that I don't know if I have any friends in those classes. Of course, as far as I know I don't have any friends in marketing, but I'm ok with that. But I don't know what the deal with psych is... I mean, I'm very interested in the classes I chose, especially Abnormal Psych. I mean, come on, I was itching to watch A Beautiful Mind last night with my frineds. But I guess I'll get into the swing of it once school starts up. I hope I can handle 15 hours again. I haven't done that in a full year and am hoping I can juggle that, work, focus group responsibilities, AO, a relationship, and a social life... 


In other news, the music in High School Musical 2 is amazing. Yes, I totally watched the premiere tonight! The story was really lame, but then again the first one was pretty lame too, but the music was incredible!


Also, we have Mamaw settled in a nursing home. She's confused of course, so prayer for her is appreciated.  


Anyhow, I'm not generally big on posting song lyrics (despite my post before last) and especially not for a whole song, but I really like this song by Switchfoot, but then again, I like all their songs... Anyhow, it's from their first album from way back in the day and called "Life and Love and Why":


Life and love and why
Child, adult, then die
All of your hoping
And all of your searching
For what?
Ask me for what am I living
Or what gives me strength
That I'm willing to die for

Take away from me
This monstrosity
'Cause my futile thinking's
Not gonna solve nothing tonight
Ask me for what am I living
Or what gives me strength
That I'm willing to die for

Could it be this
Could this be bliss
Could it be all that
I ever had missed
Could it be true
Can life be new
And can I be used
Can I be used

Give me a reason
For life and for death
A reason for drowning
While I hold my breath
Something to laugh at
A reason to cry
With everyone hopeless
And hoping for something
To hope for
Yeah, with something to hope for

Could it be true
Can life be new
Could it be all that I am
Is in You
Could it be this
Could it be bliss
Can it be You
Can it be You

I Am Not...

Emo. I promise. I know it may sound like it from my lastest thoughts/blogs/notes, but I really am ok. I am sensitive by nature, but I'm also pretty strong. It's just nice to write down some of what's going through my mind... 


I'm heading of to the AO leadership retreat tomorrow and will be back some time Thursday.

And ignite your bones

Thanks for those who have been encouraging me... I am standing strong on Romans 8:28, and I am thankful for the small things... the grandfatherly old man who talked to me yesterday in Dillard's who made me miss my own grandfathers and yet still brought joy to my heart...


Please continue to pray for Mamaw. We've told her about Papaw's death twice now and probably won't anymore because she just keeps forgetting things and lives in a constant state of confusion. With the help of a doctor, we are hoping to get her in a nursing home by the end of the week.


I have a burden on my heart, and this week I feel I'm going to have to share it with a group people... I just hope it goes well...  I don't want to get specific right now, but just pray for wisdom and discerenment.


And let me know if I can pray for you. Seriously. Because I'm trying to honestly pray for others now. Or if you just need to talk... I'm here... because I love you. Deeply.
