Hey everyone. Woo hoo so yeah I keep not updating this thing and I am going to try and get better at it. It's okay though because I know that my life is boring. It's okay though because I can live with that.

Well school is going okay and I am just doing a lot of homework and reading and stuff and just trying to keep up. I made a shirt this week for the basketball games that are coming up at my school. The team is doing well this year and if didn't know I love basketball and I really understand the game. It will be fun and there are five of us girls and it will be a lot of fun.

Okay guys I now realize that I need to get out of this place sometime this semester because I know it is getting to me and it is always nice to get out. Does anyone just want to hang out someday or something just let me know? I miss you guys. I want to go back to camp!!!!! I also can not wait for my contract to get here so that I will know where I will be working because I really have no idea where I will be working. I believe it will probably be trading post because I don't have the leadership skills to be the handicraft director but oh well trading post will be fun especially with Sally Byer as manager. I am excited!

Okay well I am tired and it is late. I hope that everyone has a nice day and I will update tomorrow hopefully.

Okay I know that many of you aren't going to care but I have lost 8 POUNDS!!!!!!! Oh it feels so great and you know what I don't really feel any different but I just seem to feel a lot better about myself. It also helps that I have my wonderful roommate here as my personal trainer to keep me moving and keeping up with my exercise and stuff. It is wonderful to have someone like that always there to make you keep doing what you should. I have been on this new eating right thing and exercising regularly and just in two weeks have seen results. Who needs a pill or something like that when all you need to do is eat better and exercise regularly? I know I don't need any pill.

Anyway, classes are going okay but I am kind of getting a little behind in them because I can just not get motivated. I think that this week I am going to try staying off the AIM a bit so that I don't get distracted and get the stuff that I need to get done, done. That would help me a lot with keeping my grades up and just getting the good education that I need. At college it is just really hard for me to get focused sometimes and just sit down and do what I need to get done.

This weekend I went on a Retreat called Spiritual Encounter and it was all about Joy. I just feel so joyful right now and it is just great to know that through everything that is going on in my life right now I can rejoice and be happy through it all. The biggest joy in my life right now is knowing that I have Jesus as my Savior and he is always with me no matter what happens. That really just feels my heart with joy and makes want to get up and sing and dance but I won't. I don't care what your feelings are with religion but if you don't have the joy of Jesus or God or who ever in your life then you are really missing out on all the joy that you could be feeling in your life right now. Sorry, my preaching is over.

Well I am going to start a new tradition and I am going to end each of my blogs with a scripture verse from the Bible. I hope that they give you encouragement for each day. No matter the faith or no faith at all the verses in the Bible can bring joy to you.

Bible Verse of the Day : "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13 (NRSV)

Well hey everyone. Not exactly really great news to share with everyone but here it goes. My grandmother had to go to the hospital on Saturday. We think she may have taken one of my grandpa's diabete pills or something but she had really low blood sugar. It is up now but she now has a urine infection to go along with it so she won't be out for a couple days. I ask you why does everything have to happen to my family. I think that my family has enough on their plate for right now so maybe that is enough test for right now. First the thing that my sister did at school, then the situation going on with my mom's family and then my grandmother goes to the hospital. I think that is enough for anyone to have to deal with. Then just add on a new semester of school and we have a party going on. Well I am very lucky to have people here at the university that are here for me. I would just ask that you continue to keep my family in your prayers and thoughts.

I didn't really do any homework today even though I should have. I watched the Colts get clobbered by the Patriots and that just made me really mad because I thought that they had at least a chance to win but they didn't show that they did at all today. Anyway, I think I may want to go to bed now because I am tired and it is 12:30. I hope that everyone had a great weekend. Goodnight.

Well I have just have one quick thing to say for today and then I am going to bed. We may be getting a cell phone tower in the parking lot here at camp. I don't know much about it right now but that is just really cool. More details later as they come. Goodnight.

Okay so interesting week already with being back at school. I have tons of reading to do for like all of my classes which is a big pain. But I will get over and it and even get through it maybe if I am lucky. It's now as bad as it could be though so I am not going to complain anymore about my work load.

I had my Old Testament Life and Literature class last night and that is going to be a fun class for me. I know that you guys all care very much about my schedule so I am going to give it to you.

Monday - 10-11 Chemistry (optional), 12-1 World Geography, and 1-2 Literature
Tuesday - 9-10 Wellness (like gym), 10:30-11:45 Christian Exploration, and 5:45-8:35 Old Testament

Friday - 10-12 Chemistry (not optional), 12-1 World Geography, and 1-2 Literature

Exciting stuff!

Well I have been exercising everyday since I got back to school and just trying to get in better shape. Not only am I exercising more but I am eating better too. I am very excited about it and going to be keeping up with it and keeping myself healthier, for myself of course. It makes me feel better about myself and that is always good and very necessary. I exercised for like an hour and a half today so I am really tired right now so I think I am going to go to bed. Goodnight everyone.

Okay so my last week at my house was pretty bad and I am just glad and sad to be out of there. My mom and I went to a lot of places. On Wednesday I went to an awesome scrapbooking place and learned how to scrapbook and got two pages done for a scrapbook. It was awesome and a great stress reliever for me.

I did a very good clean and organize of my room at home but I just need to clean it a little more and then I will be happy with it. I am glad that I got so time to clean my room because it really needed it and now I just need to make sure and keep it clean and fix it up the rest of the way when I go back home this weekend.

Well I am back at school and my classes are hard. I have to read for World Geography, it is only one chapter but it is like 65 pages, I have to read two chapters for literature, and I have to read some for Chemistry so lets just say that this first day just has not really gone all that well. I am really tired right now but I know that I have a lot to do.

Well that is it for now from my very boring life. Maybe something interesting will happen that I feel like telling you. Anyway I hope that everyone has a nice evening and I would like to wish my sister luck with finals week. Good luck!!!

I know, I know. I'm a slacker and haven't written in over a week but a lot has been going on lately. I won't explain what exactly because it is a hard situation for me to be in right now at this point. I am okay I could just use some prayers and lots of support. Maybe some of you will get the information at some point but not all of you need to know the information. Just know that my whole family could use your prayers right now.

The staff banquet was fun and it was so great to see all of you there. It was great knowing that we were the biggest group there. It nice seeing all of you and finding out what great things you guys have been up to.

I went shopping yesterday with my mom and we had a blast. I got my sister a birthday present because it is in about 18 days so now I am all set with that. Which means I won't being spending money on anything for awhile and that is very good to know because right now I am not just a poor college student but a very poor college student because of Christmas. Oh well that is how it goes.

I hope that everyone is doing well and making it through life. Remember that you have the summer to look forward to and that is always very encouraging (to me at least). Later.
