Many have long suspected it, and now the doctor has confirmed it...I have a screw loose. My wonderful Dr. and his wife stopped by his office just for me this morning to tell me why exactly my wrist has been giving me pain. I don't know where my insurance found them but I really do like South Africans, so helpful sometimes.
What a lovely start to Spring Break. For weeks I've been putting things off saying, "I'll do that over Spring Break". So then what do I do? I decide, hey, I'm going to be bored out of my mind with all that free time, why don't I work two jobs that week too? I'm working odd hours up at LU Admissions office and cat sitting for my normal boss. She has two of the most spoiled little kitties. They frustrate me to no end but know that they have me wrapped around their little furry paws.
I went into Spring Break mode last Thursday driving back from New Orleans with Lisl. We'd gone down there to drop off the group going down to Honduras for Loving From God's Heart. Not a trip I'd want to relive anytime soon but I'm glad they made it safely and pray that God blesses their week down there. Came back after sleeping 3 hours and driving 14 only to run off to my 6:30 lab. Somehow I made it through classes Friday morning and then crashed. Woke up 17 hours later to find everyone had left on their own Spring Break adventures. I'm not sure where Saturday went, although Sunday was quite lovely. It’s been so long since I've actually looked forward to going back to a Church on Sunday. I'm glad, at least for a time, I can return to Hope Fellowship.
I've yet to do any of the stuff I actually was supposed to do this week. I did finally finish C.S. Lewis' "That Hideous Strength” It was the third book in a trilogy, I read the second over Christmas. Even though the third book was excellent, I still like the second better. It is uncomfortable I find, to journey along with Ransom, growing with him in book two; only to see him elevated above me in book three as I'm forced to start anew, on the same level as less mature characters. Now if only I can track down book one I could some how piece together the entire adventure. :-)
My poor roommate has been dozing in and out of consciousness the few times I've actually been in our room, trying to recover from getting her wisdom teeth pulled. Jessie and Chris are really the only two people I've seen this week. The campus is far too quiet with everyone gone; it's high time they come back.

You're Italy!

You pretty much feel like you are the most long-standing bastion of
civilized humanity on the face of the earth.  While this is probably not true, you
do have a noted history of living the good life and spreading culture to those around you.
 More recently, however, things have started to slide and you're having a hard time
staying together and not getting beaten up.  People still like to ask you how it was
to be the center of high culture, but your days at the top are long past you.  Avoid
volcanoes, flooding, and unstable buildings wherever possible.

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or no...the sound of volcanoes and being beat up isn't too appealing. I've come to the conclusion though that these quizes are like the horiscopes in newspapers, they're general enough that you can find bits of your personality in any of them.

And just when I thought life couldn't get anymore confusing and crazy...silly me :-)
Everything seems to turn into an adventure I've noticed. I went to get coffee this afternoon and as I was standing by the cart all of a sudden there was a huge bang, it sounded like someone had shot a gun. Then one of the floor-to-ceiling windows around the bookstore started to collapse in on itself, throwing dime sized chunks of glass 20 feet across the room. Fortunately it was one of those rare times with no one standing near the window. I don't know if they've figured out the cause yet, there was no one near the window, and nothing touching it. Very odd if you ask me.
February was a hard month but it ended on a good note. Saw the Passion of Christ on Sunday, very thought provoking and moving movie. I highly recomend it. Now that February is over, life is as hectic as it ever was but my heart is lighter. I still don't know what it was that was getting me down but I do know it has made me grow closer to God.
I really want to sit and write out a long post on all that God's been doing lately but alas, I am a college student and am insane. Next time I decide that I can take 15 hours, work 5 shifts and volunteer all my free time to LFGH, someone knock some sense into me. I have great respect for those who have more on their plates than this and still manage to look alive.
Gotta run to class now. Later
