Well, I got tagged...

Here is how it works:
1) Grab the book closest to you
2) Open to page 123, go down to the fourth sentence
3) Post the text of the following three sentences
4) Name the author and book title
5) Tag three people to do the same

"I see the color green in a new way. I hear the crickets chirp without being annoyed. And just last night the stars up in the sky were beautiful, and I thought about how Abraham looked at the same ones."
Rich Mullins: An Arrow Pointing to Heaven - James Bryan Smith
(A book I highly recommend!)

And, I don't believe I'll be tagging anyone because I think every blog I read on here has already been tagged. So, I'll let it stop with me.

PS - Was that fast enough for you, Mom? :)

Back to School for OC

Well, we have been back in school since Tuesday here at OC. The students certainly weren't very happy about that - especially since the campus was still covered in ice and we were the only school in the metro area in classes. But oh well, it's almost the weekend now, which could possibly cause us to, again, get out of classes!

My Movement and Fine Arts class (the "circle time" one) is getting more and more interesting! So far this week all we have really done is sing songs and draw pictures that get to be hung up on the walls - for all the other classes to see! That has been an interesting experience for me, who has no art talent whatsoever. I just tell everyone I'm really getting into the spirit of acting like a Kindergartner. :)

Well, Mike and I tried to come home last weekend, but the weather kept us out. We were trying to come home this weekend. The weather is keeping us out. So we have our fingers crossed for next weekend! Hopefully we will see you all then. Stay safe and warm!

A little bit of this, a little bit of that...

Well, I do believe I began this blog page telling you all that I certainly am not the best blogger ever. I don't blog very often and I don't blog funny, exciting, insightful, deep, or even remotely interesting stories. *lol* My life just isn't that exciting. I'm just a mere college student trying to make the grades. Remember a while back when Shane made a post of many of his random thoughts? That's what my blogs will be. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. So with that said...

School has begun again. And let me just tell you, Benjamin Gatewood is all over this campus! He's a very popular little boy on the minds, hearts, and lips of people everywhere. I just love that!

I'm only taking 16 hours this semester, which is my short semester, so it should be a pretty good one. Though this semester, I have definitely realized that I am an Education major. My TTh class at 9:30 in the morning always begins with circle time. Yes, that's right, circle time. We all sit around the multi-colored rug where we sing a song, share good news, or do other various activities while our professor responds to us like we are five year-old's. It's interesting to say the least... *lol*

Over the Christmas Break I think I was asked about 30 times if I was engaged. Who knows where this stuff comes from, but let me just make my own announcement saying that no, I am not engaged. Trust me, everyone would know if I was. :)

There is an ice storm warning over Oklahoma City for the weekend. A campus-wide e-mail was sent out today telling of precautions that will be taken if the storm hits us. One could involve potentially lost power resulting in everyone who lives on campus moving over to the Student Center where we will be provided with a generator power, food, and a corner to sleep in. Let's just say, I certainly hope things don't come to that. *lol*

Well, I suppose I ought to go study, or something. :) I hope you all have a nice and safe weekend!
