The most random entry of them all..
Today has been an overall great day. It was just a good day until about two hours ago when I decided to go running. Ok I will start from the beginning and try to keep my ADD under control. I opted not to get my daily coffee today and have not had a headache. *Miracle* There wasn’t really much thought that went into the decision, it just kinda happened. Then we played a really cool game in my advanced public speaking class. The point was to get out of our box. I will forever remember the moral of that game. So that kinda got the ball rolling and then I liked what the chapel speaker had to say. He talked about how you can’t be a mean Christian. I know that may be so simple, but to me it was huge. I always think of myself as mean. Not that I put myself down with it, but it is a reality that I face. I am sometimes mean and “rough around the edges” (but I’m getting better). Now I have to totally eradicate that from my life. I will be nice. It is really hard for me because the example that I grew up with was anything but nice. I will stop being lazy and try harder.
Ok then my 1:30 was canceled so I had lunch in the cafeteria. On my way there I saw snow. I love snow. It always makes me super excited and gets me going. So I was in a super good mood upon entering the cafeteria and there two of favorite armor guys greeted me. Quality time with my favorite people always equals fun in my book. Then a nice nap was in store for me (2 hours). Then up to the caf again. I sat next to Chris on the sister wing. The more I talk to/ read her journal, the more I like her. Then it was all over.
I had a choice between Thai food and workout. I chose to workout. I spent my Friday night at the ORU aerobics center. The good thing about working out on a Friday night is that there is no one your age at the AC. The bad thing about working out on a Friday night at the ORU AC is that there is no one your age there. It was family time at the AC. Maybe I will do that. Get me a man and some kids, then raise them in Tulsa so we can pay $25 a year to bring our family to the lovely AC and work out on the weekends. There were kids everywhere. I love kids and I love to work out, but I don’t think you can always combine your loves. I mean really, I love Oreos and I love salsa but you don’t see me putting those together. The best part was that I had to run on the treadmill next to a prepubescent 15 yr old kid. Man his long legs sure did make it look easy for him.
There was one kid there my age. In fact I even know him. I know him as well as he will let me. I kinda have issues with him. I will write about him as though he will never read this because I know his feelings on xangas. He has already cut me down in his nice little way. I hope he was listening in chapel. I know a lot of people who would call him mean and for good reason. I think that I underestimate the power in him. I will make it a goal of mine to get to know him. I am just now realizing that he may have a lot of good to offer. He already thinks he know everything, I just should have taken him up on that offer more because soon he will be graduated. OK so four miles and almost two CDs later I was heading out. I feel so good after a hard workout. I even lifted!I went visit my friend Erin. She is an amazing person. I think she truly wants to love people as Jesus did. I want to be like that one day. On my way back I went visit my super cool sister wing. I may go over there more often. I enjoyed my visit. Yes Joanne and Christy said that I had to say they rocked so here it is “Joanne and Christy rock and are super cool” I would have said that even if they hadn’t made me. This is the longest entry ever so peace out!
