va va va v-day.

I am blogging in class right now. I feel like I am cheating or something. You see, this is editing class, but due to my professor's gallbladder situation (I'll spare you the details) we have a sub. Despite the fact that his last name is Means, he is much nicer, and I do not think he would mind if he found out. I will try to use proper AP style right now, as that's what we are talking about. I think. There is a know-it-all who talks so much I always lose track of what we are doing. Since it is Valentines day though, I will stop talking about him.

Hope you are all having a lovely V-day. I like Valentines Day. The other day at the store I decided to buy some Valentines. I wanted Bieber ones, but it was kind of picked over so I resorted to Disney Princess cards. They should just make Belle cards because she is the best and most important princess. Anyway, I gave them to my roomies today, but I have 31 left, and I do not know what to do with them. I don't want to be that girl, walking around the business school handing out cards with princesses on them that say "Have a sparkly day." Maybe I will just save them for next year.

Today reminds me of why we love. We do not love people because of what they do for us, how they act or what they say. We appreciate these things, but love in its purest form is just because. Why does He love us? I will never be able to comprehend it, but he does. He loves us just because.

"And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you'll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ's love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God."
Ephesians 3:17-19

Hello blogworld peeps. It has been awhile- since December 13, 2010 to be exact. It is 2011 now.

I am currently sitting in my room- my CLEAN room. This is rare, you see. I usually try really hard to keep my room clean, but somehow by some hand of Satan it never stays clean. If it is a little messy, it only gets messier. And this vicious cycle continues until I finally decided I cannot take it anymore and tell myself I will not let it get this messy again. But what does my room do? It goes behind my back and simply makes a disastrous mess. It is very rude of my room to be so sneaky.

In other news, it is frigid outside. A literal freezer out there. We did not have power yesterday, and I made the mistake of coming by our duplex at seven last night to grab some belongings. Our parking lot was empty and there were no lights on- obviously. Our alley had become even creepier than before. I ran up the stairs, tripped on the stairs, ran up the rest of the stairs and was out of our scary, freezing house in under a minute. Baylor took it like a champ though- and since I love to learn and go to class and mingle with my professors I was so excited that we still had class. PTL. Some of those Dallas folk were able to stay warm and cozy inside, but it is okay- I am not jealous at all. I have memories from Vegas to keep me warm, not to mention some cold hard cash.

For my 21st birthday, the fam and I hit up Sin City. We saw the Beatles Cirque du Soleil, and let me be the first to tell you that I feel changed. There were people folding their bodies in half, roller skating on ramps, trapezing up to the ceiling, jumping on trampolines, and much more. You should just go because I cannot even begin to explain it. Dad spent most of his time on the video poker or blackjack slots. He would put money in, and they would take it- that is pretty much how it went. Though he continued to play because he said it was fun. Losing money is not fun. That is why I won money. I thoroughly enjoyed the fountains at the Bellagio. The first song we heard them dance to was Celine Dion, and I was impressed. Then, fifteen minutes later, the fountains moved to Andrea Bocelli. What. a. treat. Move over Celine because Andrea is here and can rock it like you never could. I took more pictures of the fountain than any other thing- why drink or gamble when you can watch fountains. They can go higher than this I promise...and in ripples, and such, but this is my favorite picture so leave the rest up to your imagination.

Well I would like to stay and chat some more, but Chuy's and that tafter Em are calling my name. Until next time...
