Sometimes I Amaze Myself

School is school and it is never really a pretty picture! Today was a little different story! One of my classes has weekly quizzes so that we can stay on top of things and when our exams come we can be a little better prepared. You would think they wouldn't be too tough, but they are a lot harder than one would think. As my prof is preparing to hand out the quiz I get a brainy idea, since there was only six out of twenty some students in class we should be able to have a group quiz! I asked and she thought it was a brilliant idea! Let's just say we all got perfect scores! I would say that today's picture was like a Picasso or Rembrandt!

Side Note: A girl had walked in and asked if we had a quiz and once she found out we did she left...it really stinks to be her!



This isn't really a story, but more thoughts...so hang in there with me because sometimes my thoughts can be all over the board.

I just wanted to say that I had a great day yesterday! It has been the
nicest day (weather wise) since I have left Ghana on December 15th!
Four months I have wasted away in this tundra (okay okay...I haven't
been wasting away and Wisconsin really isn't that bad in winter...I
happen to like some aspects about winter, but I think you all get my
drift). Well, yesterday the Mongolia missions team (I don't know if I
mentioned this yet, but I am going to Mongolia this summer on a
missions team) at lunch together at a park. It was wonderful!!!! During
the summer a bunch of us get together every Sunday afternoon and play
volleyball! Too much fun! Well, yesterday was our second Sunday playing
and it was a cherryon top of an already amazing weekend!



A friend and I were talking the other day about sleeping habits and I asked him if he ever has one of those night when you wake up in the middle of it and just can't go back to sleep. What usually happens to me is I get really mad, I try to pray, and finally a couple of hours later I am able to go back to sleep. The next day is always horrible, but that is a way different story! Well, this friend of mine said that he didn't ever have any trouble sleeping through the night and in fact it had been several months since he had one of those sleepless nights.

(I missed seeing him at my mid-week Bible study because I went to see Wicked, the story of the two witches of Oz.)
This is what happened while I was gone...

...Another friend told me what had happened. For the past three nights, since we had the conversation, he has been waking up in the middle of the night and had not been able to fall back asleep! I know it might be a little mean to get great pleasure out of this, but it is really hard not to find amusement in the irony of the situation. Well, it lead everyone to believe that I MUST hold some powers and therefore it is very POSSIBLE I could be a witch (of course this is all joking and teasing)! I hope that you can sleep tight and not let those horrible bed bugs wake you up anymore :)


All Things...

In the last couple of days I have been holding unto this Bible truth...

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love
him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (NIV)

I don't like to be left in the dark on things and I really like it when
God makes things crystal clear (I sometimes joke about how I need a bog
blinking sign to confirm things to me), but in the last couple of weeks
some important things haven't been clear at all. I know God is in control
and I know that everything that happens to me is used as good in my
life to grow in Christ and to allow me to glorify God. We truly serve a
wonderful Savior!


Missing "Wallet"

I lost my "wallet" today without even knowing I have lost it. The ""
are because I never liked the term wallet when used for a girl. I have
recently called it my billfold, but everyone made fun of me for it. So,
I don't know what you call it, but I will settle of the quoted
wallet. At nine this morning I checked my email and there it was. An
email from my security department of my school informing me they have
my wallet! I am just thankful for whomever turned it in! Thanks to
you!!! Well, even if they tried to steal something from me I really
don't have anything to take. I am glad that I was spared the panic
feeling of having lost something sooo important and not knowing where it was!


I Got Everything I Wanted :)

So, you know the days that nothing really went your way? Well, Sunday was the day that everything went my way!

I really really wanted Mexican food. Truth being told in the last week
I have had three Mexican meals, so it was a little more than just a
want in my books! So, I lean over to a friend and say I think we should
do Mexican after Church. Low and behold someone else thought so too and
picked to go to ElChappalas!!!

Second, I have been wanting
to play volleyball since forever now! During the summer a bunch of us
on Sunday afternoons get together and play- too much fun! We ha done of
us scout out for the nets and low and behold-The nets were finally
up!!!! We got to play volleyball.

Third, I really wanted peanut butter and ice cream! I know I know! Weird and not the best, but I couldn't help it! Then I was asked if I wanted to go to the bachelor pad and have some ice cream! Three bachelors from my church all live together, which makes their home a bachelor pad! Not only was it ice cream, but it was peanut butter cup ice cream!!!

Yesterday was just one of those day!!!!


Wickedly Wicked

Have you all heard about the musical Wicked? If you haven't let me tell
you a little about it! It is the story about the witches of the Wizard
of Oz before Dorthy came in her tornado. It is WONDERFUL!!! And it is
TOO MUCH FUN!!! I LOVE IT! (So, you don't think I am going off the
handle about something I haven't seen...I have seen it once before)

school announced that they have forty tickets on sale for $20.00!!!
This includes ticket and transportation!!! It is a complete deal,
considering that tickets are around $100normally and it is in
Chicago!!! So, the tickets were supposed to go on sale at 9 am this
morning. So I got to the office where they were being sold at 8:50! It
turns out the they had started to sell them early and by the time that
I get to the front of the line I might not be able to get my two
tickets. I was really reallydisappointed , because as you read above I
really really really like this musical! Well, turns out they miscounted
the sales of the tickets and I got the LAST TWO Tickets!! I felt like
Willy in WillyWonka! I've got the last two tickets (I sang that in my head as I wrote it)!
