Greetings, mortals.

I keep saying this, but I'm going to say it again: I really need to start keeping a more convenient journal for random scrawlings. I reckon I could scrounge together some good poetry from the junk that rattles around in my noggin, but I never write any of it down and I don't have the ability to call it forth at will.

I used to be so book-minded. I read almost constantly in elementary school, and almost as much in middle school. I could still crank through a novel pretty quick in high school but I tended to do other things. Since I got to college...I've maybe read a dozen books all the way through. Not counting reading for class.

And I think it shows. I certainly like the way I've grown up, the areas I've matured in, and just the general way I've turned out. But one thing I still miss is being able to keep my nose in a book for hours on end. I used to know so many stories. I've forgotten more characters and plot points then most people ever learn about. Or maybe not. I dunno, I just feel like that a lot.

I enjoy stories. I like telling them almost as much as I enjoy knowing them myself. Lately I've been reading a bit more...I re-read the Night Angel trilogy, which is pretty neat. I was trying to read A Song of Ice and Fire, but honestly it can get pretty long-winded and there's a lot of stuff in there that I'd rather not read. I'm trying to read Les Miserables, which is partially the reason I'm in this wistful mood. It's also quite long-winded, and archaic, and I barely understand most of the context (I'm a non-expert on both French culture and history) but for some reason I quite enjoy it. It reminds me of when I read The Count of Monte Cristo...not that they're similar. I should re-read that too.

Read more, kids. It's good for your brain.

Too little, too late

I hate when I do this. I forget to post for over a month and then I have all these COOL and/or TERRIBLE things to share but there's so much that I don't know what should get precedence whatever shall I do?!

...and unfortunately now isn't the time to remedy that. I'm trying to be responsible and finish (or mostly finish) my homework before I head off for Bible Talk. Gotta be responsible, ya hear?

So in the meantime...here's a not-actually-random scripture:

"Don�t be selfish; don�t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don�t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had." Philippians 2:3-5

See ya around

My school is notorious for making students unhappy, but right now I'm feeling especially strained about this Thanksgiving break. Thanksgiving was on Thursday, for those of you who don't know, and most people had most (if not all) of last week off from school to go home and spend time with families and stuff. Not me! I got Thursday and Friday off. In order to get home before the actual holiday, I had to leave Atlanta after all my classes had ended and drive four hours through traffic and into the night. And since it's basically the end of everyone else's break, I haven't really been able to visit any of my old friends.

On top of that...my dog is really old. And apparently it's been showing for a few months, but I had no idea until I got back. She can barely stay standing, less likely walk, and we basically have to carry her around to let her pee and poop, and feed her from our hands. Besides being traumatic and just really sad for me and my family, it's also very time consuming. Between caring for her and helping my mom cook, I didn't do ANYTHING on Thursday. Yesterday I managed to get out and meet some disciples from the sister church near Charlotte (more in a sec). But today, most people are on their way back to school. I watched a movie with my mom, and now I've got a ton of work to catch up on before I go back to school tomorrow. It's stupid. All they've managed to do is distract me from Hell Week coming up.

As for making new friends, that was totally a blast. I've really wanted to get to know the campus ministries near my hometown for a while, now, but I never got around to it until recently. We watched a movie and ate at Cookout and just enjoyed the company. Good times! Good to meet more of the Body.

I read Green, finally. It was pretty neat. Sort of disappointed with the ending...It may because I read it without refreshing the other three books first. DekKer's writing style can be sort of forced sometimes, especially if you're not used to it. Still love it. The man GETS it. Speaking of green, I'm thinking of making a new layout. You can see I switched to my old starry one. I'm collecting them. :)

Doggie just had a mild seizure. ; (

Better get this modeling done. See ya guys around
