Interesting things:

-I saw Archbishop Akinola (archbishop of the Anglican church of Nigeria, one of Time (duh, thanks dad) magazine's top 100 most influential people) speak twice in the last two days. We had protestors outside our church service.

-I walked through a simiulation of a refugee camp in Grant Park, Chicago.

-I am definetly in love. No question.

What have you always wanted to do...

...just because you know you can't? I got to do just that last night. Ah the perks of being an RA! (no I wasn't wearing a fancy dress, that picture is just a prophesy of the actual event).

One final day.

Today is my last day of being wild and crazy. My last day to be immature and irrisponsible. Following this day I will be 22 years old. This seems to indicate I must from now on be indipendent, responsible, and driven. I must walk boldly ahead into my furture. If I were my sister I would be graduated from college and just about to get married by now.
But wait, I found a loop hole. I'm still in college for 2 more years and completely dependent on my parents! Whew. I would just like to say, in the ever poignant words of MxPx, "Responsibility. What's that? Responsibility. Not quite yet." Thank goodness.

Looking up.

I'm almost all better now. Further, a weird glitch in my schedule which requires me to change it around a little has changed it so that I am now taking the easiest half a semester of my life. Well, at least of Wheaton... which is quite welcome with all of the other things requried of me at this time.
God is teaching me to be less selfish with my time too, and I'm glad. It's a lesson that is better to learn sooner rather than later.
So things are looking up.

Go figure.

So of course I got sick on my first day of classes. Like not just a little bit sick. More like unable to get out of bed sick. But I don't have a fever today and things are looking up, and my friends and my wonderful boy have been very sweet to me the past few days. Now we have a 3 day weekend so hopefully that will be enough time for me to fully recover and be ready to hit the books hard on Tuesday. Also my internet is no longer working. It's a little discouraging since I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed with all my extra commitments, but you know what they say, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." And at this point it looks like I'm going to make it through alive, though I might not have been quite so sure if you asked me yesterday or the day before.
