oh college...

So I felt kinda cool in class today. I knew who Wellhausen was and was able to define his work of literature and theory. If you dont know who he is...google. He's a pretty famous guyfrom the 1800's who wrote this peace of work thats about the Old Testament and who wrote it. OK, so tht souned a whole lot more boring than I thought it was before.
Today is a pretty ok day. Sans the part where I woke up at 8:31 thinking I was late to class, only to find out I rushed around for nothing because I dont have a early class on tuesdays or thursdays...go figure. But it did allow me to get to chapel early and take advantage of the fact that not many people were on the interweb yet. Oh and prepare for chapel. Which was awesome, if you were wondering. Worship chapels are my favorite because, 1. all songs and 2. dont have to keep up with a speaker. And its fun to watch all the people below me get really into a song and start dancing. Always a funny sight.
Its a neat thing to realize that you spoke to people in two different countries before noon. One from Germany and one from Japan. Oneis a new friend that seems like an old one, the other is one I've known since what seems like forever. Its a great feeling to have knowing you are liked around the world. It was also great hearing that Im liked by the international sensation in Japan (haha). Man, I mis my german friends a lot. It was never a dull moment over there and they had a ton of great ideas and I just liked how they looked at the world. My old friends, the ones I've known since elementary/middle/high school. Man they are awesome.
I have another hour before my last class....its a terrible thing. Because I want to nap but cant. Ahh the life of a college student.

Love language?

So, being the sappy romantic kinda bored me, I decided to take one of those "What's your love language" tests. It came out exactly what I thought it would, so it really didnt surprise me any. Here's the results if you want to check them out...
Test Results:
Percent Language Score

20%Words of Affirmation 6

27%Quality Time 8

0%Receiving Gifts

13%Acts of Service 4

40%Physical Touch 12

How to Interpret Your Profile Score
Your highest score indicates your primary love language. Your second highest score indicates your secondary love language. If two scores are identical, you are bi-lingual(you have two Primary love languages). If the scores of your primary language and your secondary language are close(for example, 10 and 9 respectively), it indicates both are important to you. The highest possible score for any one love language is 12. Having a clear picture of your primary and secondary love languages will explain much of your past behavior. Think back over the past and ask yourself, "What have I most often requested of my spouse?" Chances are your answer will lie within the scope of your primary and secondary love languages. You have been requesting that which would meet your deepest need for emotional love. Your requests, however, might have come across as nagging or criticizing and thus drove your spouse away.

Obviously, I crave touch and time from any person that I am in a romantic relationship. Which I knew in the first place. And I'm pretty sure those who know me extremely well can attest to the truth of that test. Its pretty neat to see that gifts doesnt even get a score. That's not to say that I dont like getting gifts- I totally appreciate flowers on occassion!- but its just shows even more that "You can't buy me (my)love".

In other stuff, I am house sitting for people in my gel group and its pretty nice. Can't say I dont like being off of campus for the weekend and away from all the excitement of school. Speaking of which, its going well. Can't really complain about it thus far. Though I have a feeling that starting work next week and juggling 18 hours will be pretty tough. Nothing I cant handle! Tomorrow looks like its going to be a pretty great day :) I'm looking forward to getting out and maybe hitting the mall and a movie with some friends I havent seen in a while. Good weekend ahead for sure.

back to school

School has offically started, and of course I am a day behind. Not that I mind that one bit ha ha. So far nothing looks like its going to be overly stressful or hard, but knowing my luck and planning skills it will get there. Right now I'm just enjoying being able to relax at school and not have too much to worry about before all the rushof school and activities start.
Last night was my first time back at gel group since I left in May. It was so nice to be able to connect back with people who are amazing and get to talk about life and how everything is going and what we feel about life and so on. I really missed gel group over the summer. This sunday will be my first day back at church too. I'm not sure how that will go so much, but at least I know that my gel will be there!
Hopefully this weekend there'll be some awesome fun time with friends I haven't seen in forever (ok three months) and the rest of my room might getput back together. Its not terribly bad right now, but itsnot its best either. Oh how love moving in....ha ha ha.
There realy isnt much to blog abou right now. I'm still worn out from driving and just want to sleep for th most part. So I think that's what I'm going to do before my next class. Peace.

growing up ramble

I was told that you grow up the day that you have your first real laugh at yourself. Not completely sure that is true. There are many times when I have laughed at myself but none of those times have I ever really "grown up" from the experiance. It usually ends with me wishing I hadnt done whatever that was that caused the whole thing in the first place. Im starting to think that you grow up when you hit your first mid-life crisis prior to your mid-life. Unless you only plan on living forty years, then anytime in your twenties is fine for a crisis. Theres alot of things that go along with growing up. Unfortuently one is realizing that what you are working towards, you arent sure of doing anymore. That what you thought you were going to be when you offically "grew up" isnt exactly what you want to do anymore. And then realizing that everything changes on a day to day basis and you never realy know what you want till you get it. That and the urge to go out and buy a lotof shoes and/or a new vehicle and/or animal....that is probably the worst. The overriding urge to go out and do what the media and society says is normal to do. Fighting the system that surrounds is the hardest thing. That is what I believe is when you grow up. When you realize that the pressures that society has on you isnt what you really want or need. When you start to fight against that system you start to realize that its harder than what you expect. Then there's the whole being alone fighting the man thing. Thats a major bummer hudle to overcome. Its a daily battle.
ok. So that's my ramblings for the day. I have to go start my battle and try to fight through and decide what I need to do.

Friday or Saturday I am supposed to leave for college. I have done all of zero packing. Just got back from Kansas and visiting my mom and family I have there that I dont get to see often. Its a mixed bag of emotions at the moment. On the one side, school is so exciting to go to and everything that goes with it is amazing. On the other, I really dont want to go and would be perfectly ok staying where I am. Its funny how things go like that sometimes. Currently I am talking to a good friend online and waiting for my body to tell me that sleep is something that is very important. So far no luck.

By the way, I pretty much love my new laptop. Its amazing.

hello bloggas

Its been a while since I updated. Honestly, there really hasnt been much going on but work and all the wonderful drama that goes along with it. Cant say that I dont like my job. Its pretty nice to have a steady job in a economy as amazing as ours. And I cant say that the people there arent some pretty awesome people. Ok, I'll admit I love my job! There are some bad days though...I mean, come one people! The store has been there for a little over ten years! We've always closed at 10pm! Don't try to come in at 9:59pm and expect me to be thrilled to check you out. I want to go home to my puppy too! But its all good. Tomorrow will be the last day I work there for three months. And somehow I was able to switch my eight hour shift for a five hour one. Pretty sweet!!
I guess the most exciting thing that will be happening is the show that is going on this weekend. Its called the Ozark Empire Fair and its in Springfield. I'm pretty stoked to be getting out of town and out of the house. Even if I do have to show a few animals to go. It'll be neat getting to see the people I started showing with and how we've all grown up. I've kinda missed showing and the stress and business of it all. I've started thinking about maybe getting a few again and starting it all up. This time on my terms and the way I always wanted to. But who knows? I still have to make it through college.
Speaking of college, it starts again very shortly. Im not sure how I feel about it. I just really want to be done with the whole school thing. Which is amazing becuase Im starting to think about a master's degree. But also the entire after school thing. Real life. Jobs and life afterwards. But hopefully, this year will be memorable and go by quickly so I can to the summer again ha ha.
So, generally, thats whats been happening in my land. Besides the fact I finally got my new laptop and am completely thrilled with it! I've got to log off and get back to the life outside the internet :) Peace out.
