So many things have happened! Life has been buzzing by in a crazy blur... I don't even know where to begin. I suppose I'll just let it come out as it comes out... we'll call the rambling the creative license of artistic writing, yeah? ;)
Well, my mom closed the deal on our new house! She re-decorating/re-modeling/rambo-cleaning the whole place as I type... she's become a painting maniac! The house looks really beautiful, actually. She's doing such a good job-- I'm so excited to move in in a few weeks! Granted, I won't actually live there until the summertime, but still... yippee! And my mama is so happy with all the work she's done... you can really tell that she loves the house. She's put so much energy, time, and money into it and I know she's going to be thrilled once she gets everything all settled in. I'm so happy that she's been able to do all of it... having such a big project that she's been so dedicated to, that she really wanted to get done (and almost has!) has been so good for her, I think. And Mike, of course has given her everything she wants... he really is trying, this time, and I think things are working out so much for the better now.
Katrina moved out! Since we all know that I'm such an amazingly fantastic roommate and that no one could ever bear to leave my company (haha...just kidding), I suppose I should throw in that it was actually quite a good arrangement for her! She got a job as an RA in Parker House, an old sorority house that got disbanded, bought up by the university, and turned into an all-girls residence hall. She's doing quite a good job over there, and she really likes all the girls in her hall :). I'm really happy that she got presented with such an amazing opportunity, but I miss her like crazy! After she moved out, I lived alone for about a week and a half, which was a little lonely, but I rather liked having my own space! Then (and not for lack of the heavy use of my mind-powers to keep my room a single, might I add!=P) ResLife re-assigned a new girl to my room, Lisette. Things are going pretty well, I suppose. We get along fine, but she's not exactly an organized person, and that's a little frustrating sometimes... But you can't have everything! I'm just thankful that I didn't get stuck with some crazy psycho person! Can you imagine the horror? Ha.
Another momentous thing that's come into my life just recently that I am SO jazzed about is Chi Alpha. Nooooo- NOT a sorority, people! (That ish is just way too silly for my taste...) It's this Christian fellowship community on campus, and Christen (with whom I have been spending unquantifiable amounts of time with lately! <3) has been trying to get me to start going with her since she started going, almost at the beginning of the school year. However, I have so much to say about XA that I decided to give it a post all it's own... it shall succeed this one. Stay tuned!
I was going to continue my catch-up on everything that's been going on that I've neglected, but my mind is filled with things I want to say about the XA post that I feel like writing that one :). If I think of other important things, they'll definitely come in later blogs.
For now, adieu.
