It’s so weird to think that I’ve only been in school for a month and a few days. Midterms are over though, with the exception of my paper that’s due in two weeks. Eck. But then, Disneyland! I love Disneyland. My paper is due the day before we’re going, so it’s good that I’ll be able to enjoy myself without having to worry about anything, other than finals. And the GRE. Ugh. That brings me to the next thing consuming my life right now: grad school. Or just my future in general. I wish I could just know what I’m supposed to do. Ugh.
This weekend is Halloween, which means it’s going to be crazy in IV. I think I’m going to treat it like any other weekend. I don’t really feel like doing anything, especially since, as much as I hate to admit it, I have a little cold. So I figure I should just take it easy and relax. I could write my paper! Haha. The other day I was buying cough drops at the Arbor and the guy ringing me up stopped, and when I looked up at him he said, “Cheer up. It’s just a little cold.” It was so sweet and kinda made my day. It’s true. That’s how I should look at a lot of things in life. “It’s just a little test.” “It’s just a little bruise.” “It’s just a little wisdom-teeth yanking.” Ugh. I have to get my wisdom teeth pulled over winter break. Merry Christmas to me. I’m excited for November to hurry up and get here. I love the start of new months. November’s going to fly by, though. My paper is due on the 12th, we’re going to Disneyland on the 13th, then Thanksgiving on the 26th, and then Summer and I are going to see Switchfoot (finally) in Ventura on the 28th. December 2nd is the day I’m taking the GRE in Camarillo. Yeah, not looking forward to that, but what can you do.
I just finished reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan. I had to force myself to read it slowly, because I tend to read books super quickly and then not really remember anything from them lol. So I’m glad that I paced myself with this one. One of the last things I read was that Christians are like manure. When spread out, we’re good for fertilizing and making things grow, but when we’re all together, we just smell really bad. Haha, awesome.
