Ummm did I mention that I have been dating the most awesome guy ever for two years?

3/6/06 01:32 am - "Has he ALWAYS been that old?" -Selby Collison

I have been crazy busy... working at Sylvan, interning at the hospital, and doing church and school stuff... waking up at nasty hours and going to sleep at nasty hours to the serene buzz of a neighboring beer-pong party... but despite my hectic schedule and lack of summer plans... life is good. I am trying to take it one day at a time for once... not just looking forward to countless tomorrows. Sure that can be bad sometimes... ie: This one totally fat-tastic artery clogging grease-fest of a meal won't hurt just one time... But by the time I have thought this each day for 2 weeks... errr. Anyhow, what I am trying to get at here is that I am happy. I am learning to embrace the small joys of life... the generous lending of socks and car rides... the long-distance phone calls... the goodbye hug from a friend that you know you will see in a few days but who hugs you regardless.

I go home on Wednesday... Then to Nashville on Monday.

*Grin*

P.S. I love this song... to the max.

2/24/06 02:54 pm - Wet and Lazy

Most bizzare thing. Ever.

SO I was chillin and gettin my pastoral care on at Hillcrest when Ken James gets a call to go to this banquet. Long story short. My uncle's ex wife performed a lip-synced version of a sony and cher song... dressed as Cher. I havent't seen this woman in ages... and I see her dressed as Cher. At the hospital.

My Chem test was so lame. I am supposed to be at the hospital now but my supervisor is sick. It's raining and I kinda want to roll in the mud.

I should clean my room. Maybe I will stay in and read. Doubt it. I wish we had a fireplace. Next year we will.

I have $6. That is bad.

2/22/06 09:51 pm - 110.5!!!!!

I got the highest grade in my English class today!!! That has never happened to me... and the class is full of bratty literary snobs. Should such an intense overflow of emotion come from one grade? I am so happy.

2/20/06 09:01 pm - He has hummed his last tune

I accidentally scratched the entire hummingbird off my pickguard. I am sad. I wish I was at least good... like it was something to show for my efforts... but I am the worst one in the guitar class. It is pretty sad actually.

At least I made a delicious dinner.

2/19/06 07:50 pm - Clever Entry Title

2/13/06 08:38 pm - makin' cookies and sh...

I am trying to clean and study. My watching VH1 and eating candy isn't accomplishing the goal.

So I was in the sub today and this black guy sits down at the computer next to me and starts going off about how much he hates black people. "... black couples, we never stay together, but white couples last so much longer 'cause them white girls all makin' cookies an $h*t." I laughed and then felt guilty for not making cookies often enough.

I am poor and I broke my guitar strings twice.

Valentines day tomorrow. I used to wear black. Those people who wore red and pink always drove me crazy. I think I am gonna just wear lavender. Try to keep a low profile.

Um and speaking of Valentines... Post Secret. I have to read it 100 times. It is the book I would read every time I passed through Barnes and Noble and Tyler gave it to me. I love it. This guy sent out like 3000 post cards telling people to creatively submit a secret they had never told before and this book is a compilation of them.

.a.m.a.z.i.n.g.

2/9/06 12:01 am - WAY outie

I was just reminded of this kid in my Kindergarden class. His name was Will, and he had an outie bellybutton. Will's bellybutton was no average outie bellybutton. It actually hung out of his body and was roughly an inch and a half long. He had a scraggly red mullet and he wore oversized reptile t-shirts everyday. Whenever we would all be sitting on the rug listening to the teacher, Will would chew on the bottom left corner of his shirt, exposing his (WAY) outie bellybutton, which he would twirl around his finger. Awkward.

SO, I haven't updated in a while. Tyler came to visit last weekend twas excellent but WAY to short. We had a spaghetti party which was good. Good people. Mediocre pasta. Success.

In other news, I am busy out of my mind this semester. Not only am I taking classes (a modest 14 hours... finally) BUT I have an internship at the hospital AND a job at Sylvan. It's crazy, but I am way happy.

We signed a lease at the Centre... Jenna, Syd and I. I am looking forward to painting... yessss.

For Valentines day, Syd and I are gonna eat ribs in red lingere.

Seacrest Out.

1/29/06 04:36 pm - I cannot hold it in, and remain composed

Ahh. Feels good to have one of those conversations where you just get things off your chest and out in the open. Things are good. Life is good. Friends are good.

Jason came down this weekend and brought his friend Broc. Cool guy... cool guys. They encountered the Waco bird problem in the sickest way possible. Parked under a tree in the evening. There were at least 70 poops on it. No lie.

Gideon... I wish we could keep him!

Jason White looks like David Crowder. I think.

1/24/06 06:42 pm - 6:45... and I'm still alive

Today has been crazy. I woke up at 6:45 and this is pretty much the first time I have caught my breath. I went to Sylvan this morning. I got there a little late because my windshied was iced over. Entered in some testers... got to take a guys finger prints electronicly. Yeah buddy... it's like I am in the FBI... but not really. The people who work there are cool though. Then we went by K&S to sigh our lease (^%$#U$&^*()*^*%$^%%*&!!!!!) The lady there woldn't let us have the apartment for what we were told but more than that, she was ruder to me and treated me with less respect than I have ever been treated. Then I went to the post office and got some stamps and picked up my retainer... then I came home and broke, then tried to fix the garbage disposal for about an hour and a half... then did some things on my list of things to do... emails, phone calls, paper work etc. Then I went to the SLC to get my TB test results. (TB free.. that's how I roll)... then off to the hospital where I worked with Mr. James for about 3 hours doing rounds and meeting... we walked into a room where an old man was and when Mr. James asked if he could get the guy anything, the guy said a Miller Light. Anyhow I met like 40 people. Then I went to Target to get some professional things such as sweaters and a watch... then to Taco Tuesdays at Rosas with Sydney, Jordan, Ben, and Kyle. My fly was down. I didn't care... oh yeah, I fell down today. FELL DOWN. I was standing and opening my car door like any other time and my feet just slipped out from under me and I fell FLAT down. Oh well. And now I am getting ready to go to pick up Katie Burch and go to PMS with the ladies of UBC. Whew. Then I START my homework. Sheesh.

1/22/06 03:28 pm - Mandolin+Keytar=!!!

I don't think I am homeless anymore next year. I will become homeful tomorrow when we sign the lease to Hunt Club II. The apartment that sounds like a horror movie. Really though... I like it. Ummm mute math and moes tonight in Austin. First I have to finnish my paper for my ministry class.

Gideon Tsang came again to UBC. I wish he could stay... and preach at UBC for good. He is a great communicator and he is real down to earth and insightful at the same time. I love being part of UBC. It is amazing how the church continues to grow despite recent events. It rocks. Hard. I am gonna go to the PMS community group this week. (Project More Sisterhood...) I missed it last week but apparently there were like 47 people there. Crazy man. I went to "Do Something" and I want to be involved with that too. Hmm. I shouldn't overload myself though. I have an interview for David's Bridal but I might have landed a babysitting job. I would prefer that.

There is another Goble in the world as of yesterday. My uncle got married. It was nice.

Hah they played the clip of Ben Dudley singing at high school graduation and forgeting the words again today.

1/22/06 12:31 am - I should be naked.

I have 3 other roommates but I am the only one here. The only one in Waco in fact. I should be naked right now. Dancing. Instead I am gonna read my Anthology of American Literature. Naked.

...no, it's to cold in here and I don't want to spend money on heat.

1/20/06 02:38 pm - No better loss than to lose myself in you

I just got a TB test at the SLC because I needed to for my internship at the hospital. I HATE needles. I am the biggest needlephob. I tried to hold the nurses hand and she got mad an told me to let go. I felt really dumb. Now I am in my room and I thought something smelled funny and I think it is my shot. Like my skin where I got my shot...smells. Is that wierd?

I feel like I am in a huge transition time in my life. I don't know exactly from what and to what. My undersatnding of God and the relationship I am to have with him is solidifying. I mean I hope. I can't label my walk in any certain way. I know that isn't bad but it is confusing. I feel like there is a lot of gray area in many aspects of life and I feel frusterated that most of the Christians I know cannot accept gray. They make me feel like I am wrong in saying that I just don't know all of the answers... but I think that not knowing the answers is exactly what faith is all about. Either way... I think loving God and loving people should take precidence over all of this political mumbo-jumbo. Maybe that is just me.

My heart has been hard for a while now. To everything. I don't talk about it... or haven't talked about it. I haven't been feeling emotions. I think a mix of deaths and constant school work overload left me little time to care about anything. I think I am coming out of that though. I am beginning to see the beauty in people again. I missed that.

I am busy but life is good.

1/20/06 12:09 am - Control

Ummm. I feel like I have to update but I don't have the time or energy. My dad is in Waco. My uncle is getting married on Saturday. I met with my supervisor at the hospital where I will intern for a chaplain. I start that Tuesday. I have to get a TB test. I interviewed for a job at Kanakuk... and though it went really well I don't have much of a chance because I don't do sports. I am homeless next year... I need to secure an apartment. Classes are alright. I am wearing these amazing pajama pants that Tyler gave me. They rock. I hate flossing with braces. I think I am gonna see mute math on Sunday in Austin.

Night.

Take control of the atmosphere
Take me far away from here
There is no better loss than to lose myself in you
In a parachute to glide, I am captive in your sky
Surrender has somehow become so beautiful

Take control of the atmosphere
Take control of the atmosphere
You can take my world you can fill the air
Take control, take control

It's such a beautiful surrender
It's such a beautiful surrender
It's such a beautiful surrender
It's such a beautiful surrender

Move me up through the darkest clouds
Till I've lost in the sun every shadow of doubt
There is no better find than to find myself with you
In a fog you are all I see
I'm inviting you closer with each time I breathe
Surrender has somehow become so beautiful

Take control of the atmosphere
Take control of the atmosphere
There is no reason I should breathe unless you're in the air
Take control

Its such a beautiful surrender
Its such a beautiful surrender
And I'm calling out
would you take control
And I'm calling out

1/6/06 07:01 pm - --#--#--#--#--

Goodbye 20. Hello 13.

I. have. braces.

1/1/06 11:51 am - "2006, pick up sticks"

Welcome to 2006. Is it just me or did it feel like 2006 was kinda already happening before today? I was talking with J-ro and Tyler about this. The stuff that was new in 2005 was "2006" stuff right? Like cars. They will come out with the 2007's soon? It's bologna.

I rang in the new year with some most excellents. Tyler, J-ro, Keith, and J. Petty... oh and Jonathan who I met over Thanksgiving... and Jessica Petty's brother and his friends. With Keith and Jonathan there ended up being 7 generations of Duluth Band kids there. And there were firecrackers. Real ones. And then the cops drove by and weren't to pleased. But it was fine.

And Tyler realized he is allergic to cats. Very allergic?

And as for today... the Richardsons are here... and we are about to go to the mall.

12/24/05 02:09 am - I heart Homebodies

Cool. I got to see most of my favorite Georgians today. Then I tuned some guitars. It doesn't feel Christmasy. Hmm. Anywho... I am glad to be home.

Cool. I got to see most of my favorite Georgians today. Then I tuned some guitars. It doesn't feel Christmasy. Hmm. Anywho... I am glad to be home. <Justen+Shannon+Tyler+Chris> Thumbs up. Also I got to see camp people since I have been home... and my beloved Leighton. And Jason White. Cool. Ummm... Susan is gonna visit GA. Also cool. Umm... One of my eyes is foggy so instead of fixing it I am just gonna go to sleep so I don't have to look out of it anymore.

12/15/05 10:55 pm - Hurry up and hang out!

I have been home since Tuesday. Hurry up and come hang out with me. Why must everyone still be at school? By the way... I aced my semester except for Brit lit. I am not one to blame the teacher... but seriously... this time it really was Losey's fault. I would karate him... but I bet I would get kicked out of school. But yeah... getting a suprise A in stats was a nice Christmas gift. Yeah that's right CHRISTMAS! We are allowed to say it at Baylor. Boo-yah!

...cool...

12/9/05 12:47 pm - LOUSY LOSEY!

Losey is lousy. Seriously. My English Prof. has already graded my essay that is worth 15% of my grade but he wouldn't tell me what I got on it. He is passing them out after the final on Monday. I have 3 finals on Monday and I have to write my Stats Analysis paper. I need to know what I am aiming for Losey. I don't know what it is about Brit Lit but it is kicking my butt with several swift kicks. Anger. Not important. My body is so tired but won't shut down. I haven't slept since Tuesday night. This is a problem. The fact that I am updating is a problem. I am gonna rest my eyes and prepare myself for another sleepless night.
