O’ Night Divine! O’ Night! O’ Holy Night! or I Finally Learned Some Christmas Carols (293)


My Christmas tree from 2011 since this year I have no tree. ūüė¶


I’m officially exhausted! ¬†I had a long day at work followed by shopping, essay writing, baking, learning Christmas Carols on my guitar, and packing. ¬†Realistically, one more night and my room will be packed. ¬†I’m so ready for moving to be over. ¬†I’m in the home stretch (pun intended). ¬†Other good news, another girl at work (roughly my age) might be looking for a roommate in the next couple of months. ¬†Her job might include some traveling in the future so I’d basically live by myself all week long and have a roommate on the weekends. ¬†Not too bad a deal if you ask me. ¬†I’m not home that much on the weekends anyways. ¬†We’ll see though. ¬†She’s not sure if she wants to have a roommate so I’m going to continue looking for other options in the mean time.


It’s weird going through the things one accumulates over the years. ¬†I have a lot more stuff that I never even look at which makes me wonder why I still have it. ¬†I think I’m going to make myself go through boxes at least once every 9-12 months and get rid of stuff that I don’t care about anymore or even think about nonetheless use. ¬†Yeah, sounds like a good plan. ¬†Someone remind me in 9 months please. ¬†ūüôā


I’m currently watching Friends. ¬†I have¬†literally¬†seen every episode at minimum 6 times. ¬†The episode right now is the one where Chandler and Joey’s chick is turning into a rooster and it makes Rachel and Monica mad so they play a game of Who Knows Who Best. ¬†Rachel and Monica end up losing the game so, instead of the guys having to get rid of their rooster, Monica and Rachel have to switch apartments with Chandler and Joey. ¬†My favorite part has to be when we discover that Chandler gets his TV Guide mailed to Ms. Chanandeler Bong.¬†Even though I¬†know all of the jokes before they happen, I still crack up when they’re said. ¬†Oh 90’s TV shows, how I love you.


Well, I’m off to sleep now. ¬†Hopefully I can wake up in the morning for my last day of regular work before vacation!!!! ¬†Technically we all have Friday off but I’m working it and possibly Saturday so I don’t have to come in during my vacation. ¬†I am soooo blessed with 2 full weeks off from work to spend some much needed down time with my family and my friends (all of whom have barely seen me in the last 6ish months). ¬†Yup…


Peace, love, and happy holidays,



The first five days after the weekend are always the hardest! (331)




You know what’s awesome? I was¬†dreading going to work today because I was so exhausted last week after waking up so early every day. ¬†Today actually wasn’t even bad. ¬†I woke up fairly easily and stayed awake and alert all day long. ¬†Work was actually really good, too. ¬†I had lunch with Joel and Jason came to visit. ¬†My boss and I had visitors throughout the day to break up the monotony of the stuff we were working on. ¬†All in all, it was a really good work day. ¬†


After work, however, was really tough!!! ¬†I had my 3rd to last weekday class of VLI and it was hard to stay awake during it. ¬†The material is actually really good and we’re learning about my favorite books of the bible (Genesis through Deuteronomy) but it was¬†so cold and I was¬†so tired,¬†I’m not sure how I kept my eyes open the whole time! ¬†I’m only up now because I had to write out my lyrics for Acton worship tomorrow night and e-mail them to get printed. ¬†


We had our first DV College Worship Night with a full band last night.  It was so awesome!  We had Kyle on the harmonica, Bruce on the bass, Lindy, Randy, and me on guitar/vocals, and David on the cajon.  It was so neat to get to play Our God with more than just myself!!!  I am looking forward to more opportunities to play together.  Plus, I had been praying for a bassist and suddenly, out of nowhere almost, God brought us a bassist.  AWESOME!!!!  


There’s a million things I want to write about but right now is not the time. ¬†I need to go to sleep. ¬†Until tomorrow friends…



Watching Nick at Nite aka the old TGIF with F.R.I.E.N.D.S thrown in (358)


I love watching Nick at Nite. It reminds me of being a kid.¬† Right now I’m watching Full House. It’s a total trip down memory lane because I can still remember watching these episodes for the first time! Later on I will watch The Nanny and then F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I have probably watched all the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. episodes more than any other TV show.¬† Luckily for all my friends, I only watch them by myself now.¬† I think everyone else would get annoyed with my constant quoting of all the lines and laughing at the events that are about to happen.¬† How on earth did they come up with such a timeless and re-watchable show? I mean, really! I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of it!

Today was a rough day at work. I won’t go into it because it’s done and over with.¬† It just reminded me that boundaries in all relationships, personal or professional, need to have super clear boundaries whenever possible and I need to enforce those boundaries.

Class was super good tonight though. I feel thoroughly encouraged and uplifted! Now I want to go out and speak directly to illness and administer healing in the name of Jesus! Woooo! This is one of the best quarters ever. Too bad it’s my last one. Well…I’m actually really happy it’s my last one. I’m so ready to graduate and move on to the next stage of my life.

Wait a second…what is the next stage of my life?! Only time will tell at this point…
