Black Friday Woes →
This makes me so sad. It shows the true human condition. We all just need to love one another… not the new flat screen tv.

This is such an incredible family. It was so cool to see Toledo surrounding them and building them up. If you have the chance, you should watch it! :)
So I discovered that Brittany Wagner is following my Tumblr. And I guess I just didn’t find her page before this. But I’m honored. And I’m pumped to start following hers. Cool.
Should I get text messaging?

We Love Nick
Nick (in thick Lebanese accent): There six of you tonight?
Us: No, only three. (We don't have boyfriends.)
Nick: Oh ok.
Laura: I'm going to cry.
Nick: No, no, no. Don't cry...You are at Aladdin's tonight. We are going to take care of you and make you feel better by the time you leave. Would you like the mountain view or the lake view?
Help End Hunger AND Learn Vocabulary →
This website is really great. You go on and it quizzes you on vocabulary, and for every right answer the website donates rice to the UN World Food Program. Love it.
Root Canal Thursday!
I know, right? Pray for me.
So I have to say that I’m rather pumped. My name starts with an A… therefore within the next couple of weeks I should be getting 3 phone calls. Whooo. Can’t wait. haha

I’m annoyed that facebook’s pictures aren’t loading on my DAILY facebook time… how am I supposed to stalk people if I can’t load their pictures?
I basically freaked Trent out today because I said there was an e-mail waiting for him when he got home from work. He thought it was from CAMO about Honduras. It wasn’t. It was this random “Strip Tease” Instructor Training flyer I got from this girl I met at an AFAA cert. Thought it was hilarious and would totally freak him out. It did. But we are getting impatient about...
I feel so reaffirmed and refreshed. God is definitely good. And we need to serve. And we need to love others. And we need to make them feel special. And we need to be radical like Jesus. The end.

Tangible Ways to Conserve Energy →
My very special friend, Molly, suggested that we all set our homepages to Blackle, which is powered my Google, but it uses a black page rather than a white page to conserve energy, I just opened it up and it said 925,776.867 Watt hours have been saved. Such an easy and tangible to make our world a better place! Thanks Mol! :)
Later that night...
Me: So anyway, I'm probably going to have to go to therapy for my insane fear of stairwells now.
Trent: You are so right. It's probably a twelve STEP program.
Those Pesky Stairwells
Ok, so I’m studying at Carlson right now and at about 11:45, the staff come around and tell you that in 15 minutes the upper floors will close. So I packed up my stuff to head to the first floor, and went straight to the stairs… I’m only on the third floor, the exercise/stretching my legs will be good for me. But THEN: I get to the first floor and there is only one exit and...

I did it. I had to bust my winter coat out today. Sigh. It’s really here. :(
Dream Big Dream Big If there were ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, it is now. Not for any grand cause, necessarily— but for something that tugs at your heart, something that’s your aspiration, something that’s your dream. You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. Have fun. Dig deep. Stretch. Dream big. Know, though, that things worth doing...
