Random Thoughts Thursday
If you're new to Random Thoughts Thursday, click here for details!
It's been two weeks since I posted. I have been super busy. Did you miss me?
If you don't think I'm weird enough yet, you should read this post of mine (although unless you simply stumbled across this blog, you've probably already read it.) I hope it will help people, especially my fellow Mormons, to understand that there are all kinds of people in the Church, doing the best they can with what they understand the Gospel to be about.
I am done with another term of school! Wait, let's add some more exclamation marks to that!!! !!!!!! You truly have no idea how very, very relieved I am about this. The bad news: I didn't do as well as I would have liked. The good news: I didn't fail. My GPA will not be as high as I would like it, but I made it through two very tough classes and I'm not ready to call it quits.
Next term is smack in the middle of Girl Scout cookie season. Ask me how excited I am to sell cookies again. Someone save me the trouble and buy 50 cases...please?
I can't wait to get my house clean and have Christmas already!
Over the course of the past week I have had a chest x-ray, a blood draw, a CT scan (and a miserable fail at an IV.) Turns out that, except for an alarming lack of accessible veins, I'm completely normal. I'm just in a lot of pain on my left ribcage. Good times.
There are some who might argue about the "normal" part of my last sentence.
I have the most awesome sister.
I'm looking forward to Vicki being able to help me with my math class next term.
We may have splurged a little bit on Christmas this year. But it will be pure awesome. Chris is finally getting what he's wanted since he was three (so he says.) I just have to make sure the girls get a chance to play with it, too.
My brothers are pretty awesome, too, by the way.
After seeing it all over facebook lately, I finally figured out what SMH means. Why do we need more acronyms?
A few years ago I adopted Gandhi's admonition to "be the change you want to see in the world" as my mantra. I'm proud of myself for stepping outside my comfort zone and speaking up so others can see things from a different point of view. And I'm trying to remember to let myself see things from a different point of view as well.
