The Big Day...

is almost here! I'm leaving TOMORROW!!!! I have so much stuff I have to fit in a little duffle bag....should be interesting. We're meeting at the airport tomorrow at 3pm. I can't believe I'm actually going...we've been in the dumb class for it for so long but now it's actually time to goooooo! Allison lent me some books for the plane: Big Fish and Franny & Zooey. She says that they are two of her favorites, and I always listen to what Al says about books. We always like and dislike the same ones.

I think I may actually run on the treadmill today. I haven't exercised in....4 days. WOW. Yes, I WILL run on the treadmill today.

Also: I'm hanging out with Joy, Allison, and Amanda today for a while. It's nice that I get to see them before I leave because when I get back I have a week before OnGoal. It will be cool to talk with them a bit and find out what's going on in their lives.

Sweet Weekend

SSSSSooooo on Friday night, my buds and I decided to DRESS UP which always makes for a good time. We took pictures all around campus and even went to the plaza bash to get candy and a hot dog. I love my friends, they are awesome!

Today Kevin and I went to church at Westwinds. I'm kind of sad that I won't be able to go there until the fall. I really like the music and how they place so much emphasis on being real. The message was on prayer, and on how when we just talk to God continually throughout the day, we will get in the habit of hearing his voice all the time. It was pretty good. They read this prayer from this Russian woman and it was so good. I don't remember all of it but the last line was "Lord, make me real." I think that this is so important! We can't just put on a show or else no one will ever see Christ in us. We have to be real people who are open and willing to share weaknesses and struggles, but also how God carries us through it all.

Hopefully Marcy and I will get our podcast DONE tonight, and so I'll have one less thing to stress out about. 9 MORE DAYS UNTIL ZAMBIA!!!!!!!!

Does this work?

Welcome to my life!

Hey! I like the pretty backgrounds here WAAAYY better than at Livejournal, so I'm switching. Maybe I'll update here when I'm in Africa, if I ever get the chance!
