What a Week!

And that pretty much describes it. I think this is the busiest I have ever been in my entire life. No exaggeration. Just for example: Today I'm in class from 8 - 1:30 with no break whatsoever. Then I have choir at 3:30, a lesson at 4:30, Master Class at 5:30, 6th grade girls class at 7, run as fast as I can to the college class to be a small group leader, and then a rush thing at 9. Whew. Needless to say, I'm a bit exhausted. But rush will be over next week and things should calm down after that. Right? 

I'll leave you with a picture. The only one of me from last night. It was 50's night and I went as a housewife. Thanks, Mom, for your pearls and apron! You're wonderful! 
(Please ignore the expression on my face. I was not quite aware the picture was being taken.)

Last night was my first rush event!! It was a Pi - Alpha England Party. So everyone dressed "British" or like someone famous form England. We played croquet and spoke in English accents all night. It was SO fun!! 

My roommate and I. I was very uncreative and just dressed British. She was in one of two sets of Spice girls. (She was Sporty Spice.)

My friend Stephney from another set of Spice Girls. (Scary Spice)

Brittany, Beth, Me, and Terra. British person, Veruca Salt (from Willy Wonka), and a Jester from a Royal Court. Haha. What a night!!

Two Weeks Notice

Disclaimer for Kari (Is that how you spell your name???): I really wanted to tell you in person first, but hadn't told Jenny last night when I saw you. Hopefully I'll see you before you read this so I can tell you myself. But if not, I love you!!! 

I told my manager last night that I'm only working for two more weeks. This was such a hard decision because I absolutely LOVE my job and would probably do it even if I didn't get paid. I adore all the people I work with and they're some of my best friends. But I've just become completely overwhelmed. I'm taking 17 hours, and teaching piano lessons, and rushing, and teaching a Bible class, and I'm going to be a small group leader. And the list goes on and on. Starbucks was the easiest thing to drop. Ah. And I'm going to miss it so much!!! Last night as I was working and my regulars kept coming in, I kept getting more and more sad. But I know this is a good decision and the Lord has given me such peace about it. I'm probably going to have to get over my caffeine addiction now that it won't be at my disposal 24/7.

All is Well

So I met attractive boy's parents tonight when he took me to his house. Just keeping you all updated on my embarrassing fall and the results. 

Just Keeps Getting Worse

So just to add to the whole "fall on my face in front of many people" story, a very attractive young man who I'm "not really interested in" was in that Bible class. I texted him after his class would be over to see if he had been able to witness the event. His response: No, but everyone else did. And they all laughed. 

Wonderful. I am now the laughing stock of attractive boy's class. Haha. It's like a movie.

And a huge thanks to Laura for my new look!!! She's amazing!! 


Today I had one of those awkward in-between class times where you can't really go back to your dorm to do anything but you can't do anything on the other side of campus either, so I decided to take a nap in the forum. It was a beautiful day and I was exhausted so this was perfect. I laid down and set my alarm so I could get up in time for my lesson. The next thing I remember is a freshman from choir abruptly waking me up. I opened my eyes to see an entire Bible class walking towards me. Apparently they decided to have class where I was sleeping. But the professor told them to not bother me so I could get back to sleep. Well now it's awkward. They're all sitting around me and having class while I'm trying to fall asleep. But it has past the point where I can make a graceful exit. So now I'm trying to figure out what to do when I see my friend sitting in the middle of the forum. Perfect. I get up and start fake-running to her. I jump down into the middle of the forum to make it as dramatic as possible. And then I completely wipe out. I lost my balance at the end of my jump and end up on my back. Oh my goodness. So the entire Bible class that I was trying to inconspicuously get away from saw me make a fool of myself. Oh wow. What a day.

I Have Decided

It is now 11:33 PM. I should be doing some of the loads of algebra homework I have. Or the conducting homework. Or even practicing voice or piano. I could be washing my face or my clothes or my body. I could be cleaning. Or doing another one of the thousand things I should be doing. However, I'm blogging. Welcome to my life.

I had already decided (even before my rant and rave about club night) which club I was going to rush. The Lord led me directly to this club and I was somewhat excited. But tonight, I'm ecstatic! I can't wait to be a part of it!!! Tonight was their first big rush event, Pi Paradise. Of course, their night for an event was my night to work! (This week each club gets a night and they're the only one allowed to have an event.) I was SO upset that I had to miss it. But at about 9:00, my best friend (who's also rushing the same club) walks in with a lei to give me from Pi Paradise. And she says "I have another surprise coming soon." Then in walks the officers!!! she got them all to come see me because I couldn't come. I don't even know them!!! Oh my gosh, I was so excited. I'm so proud that this is the club I'm going to be in (hopefully) and I can't wait to finally be a part of it! Yay Pi Zeta Phi. 

For Laura


You are amazing. I've always, always looked up to you, but even more so today. Your blog today brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for giving credit to God. Thanks for putting yourself out there. Thanks for making me want to be uncomfortable for my Jesus. I love you and miss you so much!!!

Gamma Iota Theta Pi Alpha Chi... Oh My

Last night officially began rush week. Wow. It was club night which is basically where all the clubs have a booth and you sign up to get invited to rush events. I absolutely hated it. Now, I am SOOO excited about rushing. I can't wait for all the events and even more so to actually be in club (because I go to a Christian university, it's called club and not sorority). But last night was awful. First of all, it was just everybody competing with everyone else. Secondly, everyone was so fake. Ok, definitely not everyone, but a vast majority of the girls. There were SEVERAL girls who I know if I passed them in the hallway wouldn't give me a second look but last night they were SO excited to see me and would shout my name across the pavilion. I'm not saying club is bad. I kinda like the idea and, like I said, am so excited about rushing. At the moment, however, I'm a tad disenchanted with the whole process.

One of my best friends is an absolutely AMAZING singer/songwriter. Go listen to her stuff!!! (You can pull up another tab and listen to it while you blog-stalk. Come on, you all do it.)

(And apparently I don't know how to make it a link so just copy and paste it into the address bar or leave me a comment so I know how to make a link.)

Music Makes Me Lose Control! 
I'm finally back in classes! And this is what I'll be looking at for the next 3 months.

Sidenote: I absolutely love my Mac.
