Lazy and Anxious

Just got out of chapel service....Higher Ground (a worship singing group here on campus) performed a time of worship with us. It was much needed for me because it allowed me to really focus on God and have a personal time to pray and worship Him without any distractions.

My weekend was actually pretty awesome...and I was in Bolivar the whole time! Yep, that's right, I didn't even go to Springfield. Friday I just hung out on my own and relaxed watching movies and such. Saturday was a lot of fun. I got to hang out with a few of my friends and we went to the public library in town and looked at Bridal and fashion magazines for about an hour. We also got library cards! :) Then we drove around Bolivar to more familiarize ourselves with the town (which did not take long since it's a tiny town lol) and we ended up at Bolivar is a very cute park. I felt like such a kid. We made a big pile of leaves and jumped in them! :) A lot of pictures were taken as well... Afterward, we went back to the dorms and watched some chick flicks and talked. And to end the night, Lindsay and Alison showed up to my room and we went and Tagged our friends, Parker and Teddy's cars! If you don't know what tagging is...we just decorated their cars with window chalk and we made their cars look like Christmas with red ribbon and candy canes. Haha it was hilarious!

Haha so I really don't want to have to study all week for my Biology test on Friday, but I will have to because it's a lot of material to memorize. Ugh...I definitely need prayer to maintain the motivation to focus. I'm just so anxious for the next 3 weekends to come....because I'm going to be home! Yes, 3 weekends in a row! Here's a brief summary of what's going to be happening in case I don't get to post anything for awhile because of my crazy, hectic life.
This weekend I will be going back to see Sweeney Todd on Broadway at the Fox Theatre (which is like my favorite place of all time to be in St. Louis!). And as an extra positive note for this coming good friend Justin will be home from school to teach D-NOW at his church! I haven't seen him since August!!! I'm going to go to his church service on Sunday to see him. Yay! :)

The following the start of my WEEK LONG Thanksgiving break! Heck yes! I'm super excited. I'll be starting out the weekend in Springfield, IL at an International Student conference, then the usual making Thanksgiving dinner with my mom...which will be on Wed. this year since she has to work all day on T-Day. I also look forward on seeing a lot of friends I haven't seen in awhile either!

That's about all I have for now....On to the Studying!

Thanks for sweet note on my blog. We will have to hang out and watch the rest of War and Peace. I'm dying to know how it ends. I'll talk to you later.
