Just Kidding

I's Wednesday and I don't have pictures up yet. Oops. I've had 2 exams this week and I am beyond exhausted. I thought I'd been getting enough sleep but apparently not. I don't know if I've ever been this tired. I nearly fell asleep at work today!! That's a little ridiculous. I have no desire to study at all, I just want to go home, shower, and fall into bed. Thank goodness tomorrow is Thursday (even though I have 3 papers due Friday). And I can sleep all weekend! If I really wanted to...which I just might! I hope I don't turn into an old lady who goes to bed at 9pm and wakes up at 6am. Here's hoping!

Yes I Did!

Yep, I broke down and got a Twitter. I'm still trying to figure it all out. We'll see how it goes. You should get one too that way I'm not the only one behind on these things :)

Obviously I haven't updated in awhile, and these next few days are going to be very hectic. But I will return (hopefully on Wednesday) to post pictures from the weekend and fill you in on all the boring details of my life!

Super Long Day

Today could possibly be the longest day of my life. This morning I woke up at 5am to pull football tickets for the Baylor game on Saturday. Last night I got in bed around 11, and then got a text from my sister around midnight saying that she didn't know if she could come to the game or not. And here I am trying to sleep and now I have to figure out what in the world I'm going to do. It was STRESSFUL. Anyways, it all worked out with her. I had planned to get on campus by 6 for ticket pull at 7, but that didn't quite happen. After I woke up and got ready to go to campus, I decided to sit on my bed and just relax for a few minutes. Said few minutes turned into a half hour nap. Good thing I had a backup alarm set! I made it to campus and an hour later I had 9 tickets in my hands. And the seats are surprisingly good considering how everyone and their mama has been going to the games. Thankfully I had enough time left over to get home and make my lunch before I had to catch the bus. I've got a night permit and had to pay to park in Koldus while waiting to get tickets and I didn't want to leave my car there all day. Whew. The bus ride always makes me sleepy, and now I'm afraid I might not make it through the day. Wish me luck!

Worst EVER.

Today, for the 2nd time, I had the worst bus driver EVER. I'm not normally one for bashing people that the university hires, but can't you have some standards? Like training the bus drivers to slow down when turning or not to pull out in front of someone?? Last week he was driving and almost missed my stop because he was cruising way too fast and had to slam on the brakes after my stop had passed. Thankfully not many people were on the bus, but everyone in their seats did go flying. Then this week he didn't miss my stop, but almost managed to. It was all I could do to hang on for dear life and hope that nobody would fall on top of me with the bus being packed. People went flying. One girl fell down. It was ridiculous.

So thank you fat bus driver for not being able to drive and almost letting us get in a wreck. You're an idiot and don't need to be driving. AT ALL. I also think that everyone should learn how to drive on a manual rather than an automatic, but that's just me :)

Just What I Needed To Hear

I asked God to take away my pride, and God said, “No.”
He said it was not for Him to take away, but for me to give it up.
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole, and God said, “No.”
He said his spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.
I asked God to grant me patience, and God said, “No.”
He said that patience is a by-product of tribulation. It isn’t granted,
it is earned.
I asked God to give me happiness, and God said, “No.”
He said He gives blessings. Happiness is up to me.
I asked God to spare me pain, and God said, “No.”
He said “Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you
closer to me”.
I asked God to make my spirit grow, and God said, “No.”
He said I must grow on my own. But he will prune me to make me fruitful.
I asked God to help me love others, as much as He loves me.
And God said, “Ah, finally you have the idea.”
I asked for Strength. . .
and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for Wisdom. . .
and God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for Courage. . .
and God gave me danger to overcome.
I asked for Love. . .
and God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for Favors. . .
and God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted.
I received everything I needed.
My prayers have been answered.
