Doing Life

Phew, what a day today. Wednesdays are always hard days because I have a 3 1/2-hour class, and then a 2-hour class. The 2-hour class is good, but it’s so mentally stimulating that it’s draining. Plus I didn’t get much sleep last night. It was too cold. I need more blankets.

This weekend was fun though. Thursday after class, I met Summer for Sam’s game. That was pretty great. Oh how I miss high school and their events.

Then I had enough time to get to Real Life, so that was good. Friday morning was pouring rain, but I still went hiking with Shea, Stephen, and Bryan later on. We hiked San Jose Creek, and we were pretty much walking through a mini river for a while, until we got to the waterfall, which was so cool. It was nice to finally feel adventurous lol.

Then Summer, Christine, and I went to Adorn, with an entertaining dinner at Ihop. Haha eck, so much Ihop. We ended our night with sleeping over at Summer’s, falling asleep to Coraline.

 But not before cracking up at a “plastic, fake baby” picture of me. So great. The next day was the CBEST, which was a pretty ridiculous test. I think I did well since it was so easy. Hopefully I did as well as I think I did, because that would be pretty sad if I didn’t. Want to take a test that will make you feel smart? The CBEST will do it for ya. That day, Christine got her hair cut! It was fun sitting in the salon waiting for her. I felt like a mom or something lol.

Then Woodstock’s hit the spot, haha. We spent the rest of the day doing laundry, and ended it with another sleepover. Pretty wonderful. Superbowl Sunday was cool. More laundry, though. And that was pretty much my weekend. It was a nice weekend of just “doing life,” as Jennie Kawahara has said. Pretty refreshing.

It’s funny; doing life. What does that even mean? It’s different from just living life. If you just live, you’re in a constant state of idleness. If you’re doing life, it’s a constant state of action. So I guess when you’re doing life, you’re living purposefully. And that’s the goal. To be purposeful.

Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people). -Ephesians 5:15
