best monday EVER!

OMG! Yesterday, let me tell you, was awesome. Gotta say one of the best Mondays I've had in a while :)
I got up extremely early for a Monday. Got ready for the day and headed out. i had to go to the CDL to do my time sheet. well, nothing can make someone's day like a toddler saying your name and asking you to stay and play. however, i could not. i make my way to the infamous on-campus Starbucks to do some last minute history studying. well, i go to that and then lunch with Kari. i finished my 2 pages for English and went to music appreciation. i didn't have a huge time gap between music and English so off i go to Starbucks. yes, again lol. as i sit there, fighting with the laptop, a person, that always brightens my day (and mood if needed) walked in. small talk occurred and i continued to "talk" to my laptop and in doing so resulted in quite a few looks of wither amusement or concern were directed towards me by said person :) all i could do was laugh and attempt to explain myself, not much luck, but at least he laughed too. soon after, we go our separate ways.
i leave the dreaded English and return to the room. Nap time!! well, around six Allie calls and we head off to Chick-fil-a. Guess who was there? yet another person that makes me happy and quite nervous at the same time. And lucky me, the only available seat is next to him. hooray! I'm excited. I'm not hungry so i don't eat; just a sweet tea for me :) well, I'm sitting there and allie is to my left. after a while, i look over at her and she gives me this look. I'm like "huh?" she just sits there and looks away. a few moments go by and boy leaves with a few others. i immediately turn to Allie and ask her what the look was about. she tells me to wait later; she didn't want to embarrass me. of course, I'm all for not embarrassing me. i wait. but the moment we hit the car seats, i ask again. she says, and i quote (to the best i can), "well, i just noticed how flirtatious Aaron was being with you. hitting you with straws on your head. in boy world, that's flirting. i don't know why, but it is." my heart soars! I'm so happy and like i didn't, and still don't, know how to process such information. I'm still giddy from hearing that!! yes, i do realize how big of a dork i sound like, but i really don't care. thinking my day couldn't get better was insane on my part.
There is this guy I've seen like everywhere on campus, especially yesterday. Allie was planning on going over to study with corrie. i happen to look out the window and the beyond cute guy is playing ping-pong in corrie's lobby. i ask to join the study "party," if you will, and go over with Allie. we get over there and cute guy is gone. I'm like "sad day." Talk about speaking too soon. he walks through the door :) Allie had a random craving for cookie cake when we left Chi Alpha so she was carrying that and of course they, cute guy and other random boy, take notice. we invite them to have a piece. cute guy aka Shawn, sits next to me. (yes, it was only because it was the only available seat but still!) soon, they return to their game. hilarious to watch! absolutely hilarious!! well, Shawn got done playing around midnight and came and sat on the couch that i was on. hehe I'm so excited!! Allie, Shawn and I chatted for a bit, corrie joined in too. it was pretty awesome!! he left and Allie and I followed soon after.
OMG what a fantastic day, Monday!

strange effect

i dont know what it is about chemisty. the subject. it has this strange effect on me that just inspires me to pick up writing again. be it the bordom or what, i just feel like i could write all day. poems. previous days events. future plans. song lyrics. it happened when i took chemistry in high school. thinking of it as only a way to stay awake, i ended up writing quite a few good poems that year, junior year. here i am again. enrolled in chemistry. only this time i am in college. ch'yeah. i know right? well, obviously some things never change. on to my point. here are two things that i wrote last week...

So i let it happen again. i told myself i wasnt going to allow myself to like a guy the moment i spend time with him. it's always the same; i cant help it. i'm waaaay better than i was. i actually communicate with the guy. [instead of holding my head down, looking at the ground, with my face blazing red]. i'm tired of being A girl friend [and not THE GIRLFRIEND]. i know God has the ONE out there for me. although it is hard to let the whole yeah-i've-never-had-a-boyfriend thing bother me, it is gettnig easier. i have realized that God will reveal the one to me at the right time & worrying over it doesnt do me any good. He has surrounded me with such amazing people & i'm so eternally grateful. i'm not quite sure where i'd be had i not had Allie & Corrie. God truely works in mysterious ways indeed. with the guys He has surround me with... has made me realize what i really want in a guy. that a pretty face and a funny personality isnt enough. i want a guy on fire for God & who i know well enough to know his quirks and he knows mine. a guy who, yeah he's funny and good-looking, but i want to be extremely comfortable around and still have butterflies.

okay so i am pretty hesitant about posting this next one. like... well who do i know on here that actually knows who i'm talking about... um like 2 people? so here it goes...

Okay, so i've had such a good week! spring break was amazing... returning to school has been awesome. i'm extremely blessed. wednesday was particularly a good day and OMG so was tuesday.
The weather was gorgeous and i was instantly in a good mood. i go to chemistry and to starbucks afterwards. well, Brandon was there so i was instantly happy. fortunately, the only 2 open seats were on either side of him. he sees me and i sit down. we chatted, it was nice, but he had to leave for... something... but stuck around for a bit after standing and packing up. jessica and beth ann came in and we all chatted for a bit; brandon left. well, i continued on with my day and by 7:30p i was sitting with sarah while she was on duty. i wanted to tell her about Brandon. well, the moment i begin to, he walks in. he sees me and comes over to me! CAME TO ME.... to talk. he gave me a high five :) he and i talked for a little bit and he went to his room. a little bit later he comes back through (going to the library) and we chit chat again :) Totally made my day!!
okay, now on to yesterday!! i had advisement at 8:30a so i packed my bag with everything i'd need for the day and head out. i go to advisement then go sit in the Grill. i'm in there for a good hour, probably a bit more. well, after the grill i head over to starbucks to see if Brandon was there because i needed to ask about physics and which teacher i should get. however, he wasnt there. i decide to stay and read Isaiah. i stand in line and the guy in front of me is "cute guy i see everywhere" i'm like "suhweetness" lol he goes to order and stumbles over his words. i cant help but to laugh. i try really hard not to but when he looked over at me and began to laught also, i dont feel as bad. i go to order my usual, which is the exact same to what he ordered. i walk over to wait and he begins to explain what happened. we chatted for a bit and he got his drink, told me to enjoy my drink and to have a good day. i told hime to do the same.i sit and read Isiah and a girl, Crystal, just asked what i was reading and we talked for a bit. she left and i pull out my novel. well, a few minutes later, i see someone come and stand in front of me. i look up to see Brandon smiling down, leaning against the wall. i'm like instantly in an amazing mood (more than i was to begin with). he continues to stand there as we talk and he like sees someone from his class through the window. he puts his stuff down and i tell him i've got to get to class anyway.
so all-in-all i had a pretty fantastic day, even befor i had even gone to my first class. well, wednesday means Chi Alpha. HOORAY!! we always eat after chi & [this week we] went to sonic. allie and i go, and about 12 of us went. after awhile, it had settled to about 7 of us. we begin talking and ended on movies. which somehow lead to Across the Universe and Aaron never having seen it. Movie Night! i go and borrow the movie from Kari and Allie and I head over to Aaron's. it was fun hanging out with the guys. overall, such a grand day! i'm truely bless with all of these people as friends.

well there ya have it. a week worth of chemistry writings. okay so there werent any poems or songs but just give it some time. they will come. i promise.

'til next time...

where i'm suppose to be

okay so i have had the BEST spring break like ever!
first i went with TTU's campus outreach to panama city beach, fl
no not to party or any of that sillies! lol
we went and had their own version of "Beach Reach" [BR is basically when college students go with the intention of sharing the Gospel.] CO did their own version this year. it was such an eye opener. well first of all, i meet some frickin' amazing people. Brandon, Roxy, Lindsay, Sarah... the list goes on and on. i even got to know my friend Lauren better [love that girl... she's the one who invited me] this trip was such an amazing thing. i got to see how easy, and hard, it can be to share the Gospel. while down there some of the guys met 4 guys from Repent America. on our last night there, Shawn, Vincent, Jake and Michael bought us [a group of 34] pizza and we went with them to just sit and talk at their camp. they had a bonfire going and we sat and talked for a good 3 hours. they were such an encouragement on sharing the Gospel! by the time we were getting ready to leave, Sean [one of CO's leaders] said we weren't going to be able to go back to the hotel due to a guy having had fallen from the second floor balcony [which is actually the 3rd story] and everything was roped off... it happens that there was a beach not far from where we were. a few of us walked down to the beach and it was breath taking. i have never seen anything so beautiful in my life. hands down, it was the most amazing sight I've ever seen. the moon was full. not a cloud in the sky. the stars were bright. the white sand glowed beneath the moonlight. the waves crashed ever so softly. i was surrounded by friends. i could not ask for a better place to be in my life. we were there, on the beach, for a good hour and half. i was so blessed to be there. i knew i was were God wanted me to be.
late Wednesday night, we get back to cookeville from PCB.
on Thursday Allie and i had breakfast at chick-fil-a and then we each drove our separate ways.
i was two turns from being home when my jeep hit some ice & water and spun out of control. i hit the ditch. i called my dad and he came. he saw where i was and after making sure i was okay said, "you should have flipped" it was definitely a God thing that i didn't. nothing happened to my jeep either. NOTHING. not a thing. i might have to get a front end alignment but i don't even think that is necessary. so what does one do now-a-days when something happens? facebook status updates. well i did that and Allie like flipped out. lol i laugh b/c i know her. i called her and she and i knew that it was a God thing. she said "you always know Satan attacks you more right after a church retreat or anything that you have just grown in your relationship with God. Satan tries his best to take your happiness from that away" i told her it didn't work. it made me happier to be closer to God.
Friday and Saturday i went to Acquire the Fire. a christian youth conference. it was amazing. i loved it. i went with Jil's church, Bethel World Outreach Center. Emily went with me. i felt like she would benefit some by being there. i met some awesome people there. first off these two adorable 13 yr olds, Haley and Abbi. [i have a feeling that had i ever had a little sister she would be like these two] i also meet Sarah's younger siblings, Sonni and Schuyler. i also met Jessica and Micheal. they were really awesome. oh! how could i have forgotten, i definitely have a new favorite band; Paul Joel. look that kid up! lol
well, that is a, um brief?, over view of my spring break '09. I'll probably update... no i will update about other things that happened like... hanging out with Allie and patty and the guys. lol
