It's SO cold here!!!! Remind me again why I'm here at Northland. I'm shivering right here in my seat. This morning was not a fun one. I woke up freezing cold. The furnace was not working. So I was looking forward to a lovely hot shower. No luck there either. Everyone in the trailer had used the hot water. So I took a quick lukewarm shower in a freezing cold trailer. I hate cold showers. It's an ugly start to an ugly day. But like brother Farrell says, "you attitude is your choice." I always remember Klarissa telling me that.
So, cold trailer, cold shower, next is the long walk to devos through the frozen tundra. It's so cold here, that each time you take a sniff, your nostrils stick together. hehehe. Nose freeze. This picture is where I wish I could be right now.
But I'm not going to have a bad attitude. I just got out of Doc Survey 2 with Dr. Doug Bennett. We are just getting into the topic of Angelology. I think it will be really interesting.
This semester is going to be quite different than any other semester. I've been walking around aimlessly or sitting in the rec hall a lot by my self the past few days. I think which is why I decided to get a blog site. I have so much time on my hands right now. Joe works mornings and then goes back to bed. Tuesday/Thursdays he doesn't have any classes. So there is no reason why he should come on campus. And then on Mon/Wed/Fri he has two classes after lunch. I don't think our schedules work out where we can eat lunch together. So my heart has been very heavy lately because I miss him very much. The only time I've really gotten to see him is at other activities where I'm working, or other people are around. Not that I don't like people around...it's just that sometimes a girl would like to have her time alone with her man. You know? Well, Joe and I talked about that last night. Joe is such a good counselor and friend. He could see that I was down about it. He is very encouraging. I know that I won't be able to see Joe much this semester...But I'll use the times that we do get together and cherish them. In 169 days, we will be married and then spending the rest of our lives together. So my goal this semester is to finish hard, give all that I've have, bond closer with my girls, and seek God. Chapel will be starting in a half hour, so I must wrap things up here. I wish I was on the beach right now....
