This Week...

...feels like it might never end...
It's been crappy and stressful: tests, writing assignments, drama with friends (I'm not a direct party of, however I managed to score the position of mediator...), a lot of abnormal work stuff to be taken care of... It's seemingly perpetual.

But that's ok- my Grady will be here tomorrow!

And in a week, I'll get to see my 58-year-old best friend, Suellen while enjoying some good old fashioned football rivalry!

Additionally, I'm almost to the end of a good book; I love that place- where you're completely hooked and you can actually appreciate the anticipation of closure, not to mention the excitement of picking up a new book!

it'll all be ok... this week will be survived

Today=spectacular thus far!
In Experiencing Music, we learned how to play the e, d, and c on our recorders; listened to a magical presentation of recorders by a delightful older British chap.
In Mycology, we learned about the difference between respiration and fermentation, and I actually picked up on it as easily as the rest of the class that's full of upper level science majors (me being a lower level education major...).
After class, I received one of the greatest compliments of my life from my boss and her husband- my boss introducing me as "the most wonderful lab assistant [she's] ever had." Her husband informed me that she speaks often of me, and very highly at that. Given Dr. Hoefnagels being the incredibly respected and revered professor that she is, that is kind of a big deal to me. And by "kind of", I mean "quite." I work hard, and I appreciate having a boss that's willing to acknowledge my efforts and ever encourage me!
And nothing after that could possibly beat that, thus the day has continued in a marvelous fashion!

Silly as it may sound...

During the humiliating years of being a teenager, I managed to miss the importance face washing... I'm not sure why or how... I knew I needed to, I just didn't feel like it I guess? I know- I sound stupid, and I probably was. It's like brushing my hair when I was younger. I wanted to take care of myself, but I didn't really know how. So I ended up with huge knots at the nape of my neck that were less than fun to untangle.
Regardless, I just mastered the face washing concept, and have cleared up considerably! Therefore, I'm incredibly excited.

That is all...

Sundays Appear Productive

I guess in the boredom of a Sunday afternoon, I can accomplish more than I do in an entire week... Once I get home from church, I find myself acctually doing things- drawing, reading, sewing. Today's work was of the latter- sewing. I've been sewing bags for years, but I got my first request for a messenger bag this weekend! And I'd say it turned out pretty decent. I'm quite proud to be honest. And for that reason alone, you get to see it.

Today has been a magnificent day! Completely put aside the rain followed by blazing sun; ignore the itchy polo and thick white pants I have to wear- OU beat Miami 51-13!
Last weeks game was good, but it lack interest because we played UNT, and UNT is... well UNT. Everyone knows they do music, not sports... So a 73-10 win was exciting, but kind of expected... However beating Miami was not necessarily predictable!

And the pool at the apartment complex felt marvelous on my sunburns.

Next on my schedule, watch TCU take down saxeT! As if the day could be any better...

A Cappella Dreams

Per Tracy's request- here is my update of how my first rehearsal as a Redliner went! It was on Monday evening, and I got a bunch of music, and am still missing some. But it was an hour and a half of learning the tenor line of O.K. Oklahoma, OU Chant, and Kiss the Girl. It's a challenge, but I'm enjoying it! The people are all very nice, and easy to work with... We have our winter concert December 6, titled The First Annual Fireside Cuddle with the Redliners. I'm incredibly excited! You should be in Norman, OK on that evening.
