just a little update…

I got a request to update this, so I will. But honestly, I don’t have anything truly amazing/wonderful to share.

1. Arrested Development is my new favorite show.
2. I finally sent in that housing contract release request form. (Mary, this snippet is for you!)
3. I really like Student Government. Really, really like it. <but is that news? nope, not really.>
4. I made Oreo Balls for my The O&P men. It was a hit. I’ll be making them again soon.
5. It’s leap year. How exciting!

I have a slight problem…

Some might call it a quirk, a habit, and you might even be able to get away with calling it a bit.

But it basically comes down to this: I can’t sit down and study unless my room/work area is spotless. Really. I think I just spent the last 4 hours arranging and rearranging things that don’t need to be moved. I have also gone through two pots of coffee since the beginning of my cleaning quest. I’m also not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure that can’t be good…

See, I’m in a bit of a predicament. I have oodles of classwork and reading to be done before class starts in about 9 hours, and I also have to get myself to sleep before then. But Jess, you’ve been out of class since 1:00 today! I freakin’ know!! But I’ve been running all across campus and back and forth from the SG office. And I had a little bonding time with the new suitemates, and a project meeting, so cut me some slack, will ya?

I shouldn’t be blogging right now, but I absolutely honestly cannot help it. I should be reading two days’ worth of The Wall Street Journal, excerpts from The Leviathan, completing my chinese workbook assignment (do I have a quiz in the class tomorrow?), and reading about genes and gene transfers or whatever you science type people call it.

I’ve been distracted by my upcoming excursion back home this weekend. All this thinking about stuffing my face with deliciousness has really taken a toll on my poor, over-worked brain. A girl can only handle so much at a time! With classes and quizzes and a lurking exam, and thinking about cooking and baking this weekend, my brain is entirely pooped. Yes, I’m trying to justify my procrastination. And yes, I do feel (relatively) guilty for wasting so much time, so I’m gonna go now.

[edited at 12:55 a.m.]– okay, so I had to take a shower first. I like being clean. :)

It’s set for 6:45 every morning.
I used to be able to sleep until then.
But not anymore.
And I hate it.

“It’s time. You should get up now.”
-No, I don’t want to.
“Quit dreaming and get up.”
-… fine.

That’s the exact conversation I’ve been having for over a week
with myself.

That’s the exact conversation I’ve been having for over a week
that makes me get up before my alarm.

stupid alarm.

And even though my mind wants to be up and running at
6:12, 6:25, 6:33,
And even though I really really want to,
I can’t be angry when I wake up.
I think it’s because I set my alarm so I can wake up to
and I guess I subconsciously adore the song so much
that I actually get excited to wake up in the morning.

Round two… I guess?

I’m starting up my blog again, for you Sonia, just because I need to tell you everything and you’re so far away.

I have all these thoughts in my head that absolutely need to get out, and they’re pretty much all in some way involved with my favorite organization on campus. Day two of rush was today, and it was great. We played paintball and I left with a couple of battlescars. It was abfab, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Going through rush for the second time is definitely harder because even though there’s the personal advantage of having been though it before, you have to continue to work for it. It’s tough, but I love it and I want it more than anything else in the world. It’s not to take up space on my resume, or to fill up empty time in my schedule (because the Lord knows that there isn’t any!), or anything superficial like that. I really truly do want it because of the possibilities for service that I can participate in. I feel like I have a talent and that I was created the way that I am because of the potential servitude that will emerge in due time. It’s not that I don’t have leadership capability now, but I feel like if I go through pledging, I’ll change for the better, and I want that. I want to change for the better. I’m here, away from home, so I can grow and be the person that God wants me to become. But I’m putting this entire situation in His hands because I know that I’m not equipped to deal with it.

I’m rolling with the punches, and boy, are they some tough punches.

In other news, I’m considering taking the vegetarian route. I feel like it’s just a healthier way to be living life. And really, I never liked the taste of meat. And it’s not exactly the animal-cruelty deal, but it does kind of gross me out. And it should be that reason. But then again, God did intend for certain animals to be used for food… which is completely logical because you can only get certain nutrients from meat sources. I know that you can get iron and Omega-3 and such from other sources but they’re not that great. And then there’s this other issue… just the fact that I’m slightly anemic, so I shouldn’t really be cutting out iron sources. I’m really thinking about it. I don’t think it would be so bad, but I do want to give it a test run and see what happens. Maybe a week or so of being veggie wouldn’t hurt.
