Alright, so it has been a whole week since my last update. I find that odd. OK, so I really don't, but I will say that for lack of a better explanation. Anyways, how has everybody been? Awesome? Well I, thanks for asking by the way, have been super stressed, but it's all good. I am in my last week of school for the semester (seriously!) and this is the nitty-gritty. The no-holds-barred time of the year. It's intense man ( or woman. To each his/her own)!!
I finally finished up with all my research papers and turned them all in like the good little student I am. Anyways, the one that I was really worried about, the Ancient History class one, yeah, I stayed up until like 6:30 A.M. finishing it up. I started typing it around 2:00 P.M. and then took about a two hour break for some family Christmas photo shoot and dinner at Casa Ole. Ole!! Got back and resumed said paper. The thing is, the paper had to be at least 11 pages (per Dr. Owen "Don't even THINK about turning it in until you hit the 11th page.") So, I got all my research in order and began typing. And typing. And typing. OK, you get the point. Finally, I came to an end. First, when doing my research, I would use note cards, and when I came up on something important I would write it down on the note card with the author and page number. Anyways, after I used up all the note card information, I only had about 8 pages of material. It was now about 3:00 A.M.
The time came to make a decision- stay up and finish, or go to my nice comfortable, extremely warm, very small bed, thus failing the course? I chose the first one. I got out all of my books and went over everything. I was at an impasse. How do I add information without repeating myself, and how do I extend information already present in the paper? Well, after 4 more hours, I got my answer. The paper was not due until 11:30 A.M., but I had an 8:30 A.M. class, so I had to go to that, and I could not afford any more chapel absences! I took about an hour "nap" and groggily made my way to my morning class. Chapel came next. Went to the library to finish paper. Wrote biblography and endnotes pages, and went to class, and finally got the paper out of my life (YAY). I was extremely tired so I skipped my 1:00 class (GASP! The Horror!) and went to get new glasses and then went home to bed. Whew. What a day. So, point being, I am terrified of my grade, and therefore am still stressed out.
So, what next? Oh yes- Dallas. I have to go to Dallas Friday and Saturday for LST training. I will be training and taking my own team to Taga next year, so I have to go there for a weekend training thingy. Fun. It starts at 6:30 P.M., but I do not get out of class until 12:30. It is about 6 hours there, so I will be pushing it to make it on time. Plus, Kelsey informed me that Mandy did not register, so I must go by myself. Oh well, I love to drive!
I do not, however, love to drive when it is icy, as is the current condition. That's right folks, Lubbock Texas recieved their first snowfall around 1:30 A.M, Thursday Nov. 30th. It. Was. Awesome. I was lying in my bed last night (early this morning) and heard a crazy-cool sound. It was the sound of fresh falling snow, the sound my ears love. I love the snow. I love cold weather. Yes, I m wierd. Whatev! Anyways, I awoke this morning to find about 5 inches worth of snow! Those few "Thursday flurries" sure were pretty heavy. Anyways, it made for a fun day. Oh yeah, at 3:00 P.M. today, there was The Ultimate Snowball Fight on the LCU campus. They announced it during chapel so that everyone could attend, but yours truly was in class. Oh well, the snowballs might have damaged my purty new glasses!
So, I love the snow! It rocks, and it looks delightfully delicious. Yummy...
Pray for me as I embark on my journey into the Metroplex. It will be fun, like an adventure! I love adventures. So, until we meet again...
Also! Due to said weather (and work), I missed an all new episode of Grey's Anatomy! The last one until January!! Thank goodness for computers, for I can watch it upon my return to the LBK Sunday. Peace, love, and strawberry flavored applesauce my dear, loyal, readers!
