Come Lord Jesus, Come.

Today I came across "The Decade in Pictures" at stumbleupon.com, ironically enough. I as I look through these pictures all I can think is- how can this not be the end? I'm so thankful for the hope that I have. How can I not share it with you?

"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I got to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14:1-3

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

"Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope; because of the Lord's great love we are not consume, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:21

And Finally, "...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5

This place is not my home.

Really Meyer Briggs testing, really?

On Monday I took one of those personality tests for my communications class. On Wednesday we got the results and it's official. These tests are bogus. Before we got our results we were told to guess which personality type we thought we had. The result they gave me was not my first choice. It wasn't even my second choice. It was my third choice. Now the question is, which one is more accurate? What I know about myself, or what this test says about me. The personality type result wasn't what really blew my mind, but the career options that came with it. Things like race car driver, computer technician and dental hygienist. I've never owned a car I could drive over 70mph, I detest computers for anything but writing papers and using the internet and I hate the smell of dental offices. I think I'll stick with my English major, thank you. Which brings be to a happy snippet of information, I finally got a job in the English Department! It won't be anything too impressive; just helping Dr. Jones check resources and grade papers, but I'll finally be working enough hours to keep my head above water.
Today I will be attending "the ultimate team building experience". This is also for my communications class and I'm trying really hard to be excited about it. What isn't fun about spending 8 hours participating in team-bonding experiences? *side note: we've been learning how to create sentences in Spanish, so every time I type out a question I feel the need to put an upside down question mark at the beginning. there is no such key.*
Finally, I would like to give a shout out to my friends, and fellow bloggers, Ally and Sam who recently went to the Philippines on mission work. Check out their exciting life in another country in their blog. Photo: Allison Hanaway, Photographer Extraordinaire

Life of a Lamson Hall Desk Receptionist

Here I sit. 4 o'clock in the morning. The dorm is completely silent; absolutely dead except for the archies who sit quietly drawing their pretty little (but actually quite large) buildings. I've looked over the Lamson Hall Desk Log; here is the highlighted (important) information: only give one roll of toilet paper/resident, call housekeeping to bring more toilet paper in the am, read memo. Sometimes I feel really important... I did pick up my Lamson Desk polo. It looks pretty shnazzy, but really it's just a black polo. Watching the cameras is usually fun, although I feel like it gives me major creeper status, along with my ability to see who comes in and out of every building on campus. There is no mail to be forwarded. This is about the extent of my productivity. Enjoy.

I no longer have an excuse for not being able to swim.
If words had flavor...
I find this exciting... take me to Broadway please.
This makes me happy.

I'm starting to feel like I only post the events which happen during my weekends. This post really is no exception. Yesterday was magnificent. I attended church at PMC for only the second time this semester, and shortly after shared a delicious potluck with great friends. The rest of the afternoon was spent cuddled up with my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years. Things get so busy sometimes, it was really nice to spend some limited-interrupted time together. We played guitar hero and watched Singin' In The Rain. Here's to being perfectly content.
