This is strange, but I like it.

It's the Sunday before finals week (aka the week from hell), and I am surprisingly calm.

In fact, I'm sitting here jamming out to some Hot Chelle Rae, having just eaten some mac & cheese, admiring the 13 pages of my French Lit take-home test that I FINALLY got done this afternoon (we'll ignore the fact that I should've had it done last week).

I am just ridiculously happy.

I got to talk to Taylor and Brennan today, which is pretty special.  And Taylor sent me this.

That navy blue spot next to the figure in brown in the center of the pic is me.  Taylor took this right as I was about to climb into the baptistery pool.  I don't even care that this isn't actually the pool where it happened because the water was too hot, I love that he got a picture of me up on the stage, and I love that he was sweet enough to think to take this.  It brings me right back to that night.  I remember every little detail and feeling like it just happened.  This picture and the other pictures from that night are the kinds of things you treasure for your entire life.

Something about getting this picture, and then sending it to Brennan, made me think again about just how incredible the people in my life are.  I am so grateful and so humbled.  Sometimes it just hits me, how undeserving I really am of all the amazing Christian friends God has put in my life, especially the ones like Taylor and Brennan who have been such mentors to me and not judged me when I was at my worst.

Hm.  Maybe that's why I'm so calm right now. :)

Anyway, I need to get off of here and read at least one chapter of Econ tonight before I go to bed.  I promised this guy in my class I'd help him review tomorrow for the final so it's kinda important that I know what I'm talking about, haha.

We're goin' at it tonight, tonight, there's a party on the rooftop, top of the world, tonight, tonight, and we're dancing on the edge of the Hollywood sign. I don't know if I'll make it, but watch how good I'll fake it. It's all right, all right, tonight, tonight.

  1. Yeah, understanding the material before tutoring someone is sorta crucial. Says she who makes a living TAing, lol. :)
