The Face Book

9 08 2005

It’s 1:30 in the morning. I should be sleeping. I’m working about 12 hours tomorrow. Sigh.

Ok, so this new face book….. fun way to connect to people you don’t know as well online, but really, do you actually think that anyone at Goshen’s going to meet someone new this way? Everybody already knows everybody. Not that we all know each other well, but you already associate with the people that you’re probably going to associate with. I doubt that in two months time most people will check up on anyone but the people that they already hang out with in real life. I may be wrong though! Hey, maybe this could harold a new advent of readership to this very blog! That would be sweet (though a little scary). It’ll be interesting to see what happens with this new fad. I have to admit I was quite shocked to see that Jesse was already friends with two people, and I didn’t even know he was on it.

Things have been a bit slow lately…..sort of. I’m pretty tired of living day to day with now congruence between days, weeks etc. Every day this week is going to be pretty different than the one before, and even more removed from the ones I had last week. I’m ready for some more routine in my life. I’m also tired of waiting for China. Come already! But then again no….. maybe not yet.

Today I went out to eat twice. Bad Stephanie, bad. I didn’t know it was going to happen that way. I went to El Camino Real with Abby at lunch, and then when Jesse came over after work we went out to Applebees. A big part of the reason that I ask Abby if she wanted to go out for lunch, was a) to kill time before work at admissions, and b) I didn’t want to have to scrounge around my kitchen for food. I mean there’s alot to eat in my house, but I just don’t really feel comfortable in the kitchen, and not much of the food is the grab and go, or throw together fast type. There’s always so much in the fridge that I get overwhelmed when I open it, and then just close it quickly again. Abby and I watched “Guess Who” tonight. It fairly recent about a white guy meeting his black future father-in-law. It was really cute and had some good things to say about making relationships work, and it touched on the hardships of interracial marriage which I’ve gotten to see somewhat through the relationships of both my sisters. Karis, my oldest sister married Matt, who is half African-American, and half Caucasian, but who was raised by a white Presbyterian pastor and his wife. They life in rural Pennsylvania….. not the easiest place to have an interracial marriage. Lenora, my closest sibling (at 30) married Tobias, a man from Tanzania. I need to talk to my sisters more about their experience. I think it would be interesting.

Wednesday is my last day of dishes at the Bluegill, and then either Thursday, or Saturday is my last day of SAing. Starting Thursday, I’m going to be babysitting for Bill Born’s two youngest children, and a friend of theirs. Should be interesting. Well, goodnight folks. Blessings to all.
