The day definitely got better. The ASL get together went really well and I think I did a really good job grilling! Not something I’ve really done before. And it didn’t rain, even though it looked like it was going to the whole time and sprinkled a little bit once or twice. And then there was an icecream social at westlawn and I got my curtains and I didn’t have to work in the coffee shop after all, and I had lots of visitors in my room, and I got to play cards with Jess, and………… It’s been a good day

ASL get together tonight! I have so much to do to get ready for it, but I don’t feel like doing it quite yet. And then I’m working at 11-12:30! grrrr….. it’ll be fun, but I don’t think I’m going to like such late shifts. Classes start tomorrow. I’m not feeling ready yet! partly because I don’t have my books etc. Grrr………. I just tried to order my books online and went through the whole process before it let me know that I’m 2 days late to order for this semester! Wow, today’s just not my day.

I’m tired….. and I’m worried about stuff that I shouldn’t be worried about. Like the fact that Jenn hasn’t e-mailed me back (this is very strange), and that my ASL skills are going to be so behind that Myron’s going to kick me out of the program or something, and that the people I care about are not happy, or struggling with things or…….. mostly it’s just cause I’m tired. But I’m also very sensitive to slight vibrations in group and personal “carma”. My own is pretty low at this very moment, but life will improve when the sun rises tomorrow morning. I love how that happens….. a new day comes and you get to start off fresh.

May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door.

Can I say right now that I’m really disappointed that it feels like this election is turning into another “lesser of to evils” choice? I really don’t want Bush in office, I don’t trust him and I hate the decisions he’s been making for our country. But I really don’t think I’m going to like Kerry all that much more. They seem to be cut from much too similar cloth! There’s something wrong with a country that has to chose between to men that they don’t really like either of. It’s just so frustrating. I wish I felt that either of the candidates were worth my time. I was mad when Dean dropped out of the running. Grrrrrrr….. It doesn’t seem like it’s going to change anytime soon! Sigh

Libby’s back And I finally saw Luke today! I was getting worried. He was scheduled to move in on Wed because of track, but never showed up. I never did ask why he didn’t come….. The transfers on our floor seem cool. I’m looking forward to getting to know them. MYF (Mennonite Youth Fellowship- basically our version of youth group) lead worship today at Assembly and I was really impressed by what each of the MYFers who spoke had to say. It’s good to know that the generation that will directly follow us has such strength in their ranks. Today was great. Twice I had groups of people in my room hanging out! It felt soooo good. I love my room. I love being on campus and having people come visit me. Especially after last year. And my room really does accommodate quite a large group of people if needed That’s great, because I’m hoping my room becomes sort of a hang out type place. Of course I’ll have to be careful to make sure I’m using my time well and studying appropriate amounts I’m going in at 8 tomorrow to have an interview to be a big sister! I’m a little nervous about it, but I’m really looking forward to being part of the program.

In other news: I’m falling in love with a man named Jesse, and I haven’t been this happy for a long time, if ever. I’ve always known God knew what He was doing, but sometimes it was hard to see. Now I realize that it took all my other experiences to get me to the place where I’d be ready for this relationship and all the joys and challenges that go with it. I just couldn’t help but share my wonderment at that. God is good, of course that’s easy to say on the mountain tops of life. Now learning to say it in the dark places is the next step.
