Still water runs deep.....
I had class again tonight............It is so amazing! Seriously how many times can one person have their mind blown? I feel so blessed to be there. I hope that the full call school moves to Maine (fingers crossed) I want to go there full time.....

In other news....I don't know what it is, but I have been so bored lately. I feel like I am waiting for a phone call that isn't going to come. Or something like that ug...this is my favorite season too.

Oh well.....

Current Mood: good

WOW it's been forever! But of course when the monumental hangout between the NH boys and the Newport crew happens, I of all people must break out of hibernation and update...

Other than that nothing really is going on. I started bible school last wednesday. It is so incredible. (If anyone is free on Wednesdays and in the Waterville area you should join)

Work is better now that my boss doesn't think that I am an idiot. I am the new activities person and the craft decorator. Sounds cheesy, but I get to leave work all the time now to watch movies and stuff like that and get paid for it!
Coming up I have 7 days off and it's not my vacation!

So the hangout.....At first I didn't really want to go to NH (sorry Quanta, but it was one of those days), but I went anyway. The drive was really easy. I think that that was the easiest trips to NH that I have ever made. We didn't get lost or have to turn around, and best of all Quanta drove us around after we got there. We walked around Portsmouth for the evening (which was so nice) I love it there, I didn't want to go home. Anyway we had dinner there, don't ask where we ate, because I totally forgot, but it was really good. The best quesadillas ever! We went out by the pier to take some pics. Then we went to the most beautiful garden/park that I have ever seen. I could had stayed there a lot longer. I really want to see it in the day time. I'm such a sucker for stuff like that :) ...After that we went to get some ice cream. The only bad part of the trip. We had to drive through UNH. Now on anyother day that wouldn't be a problem, but it was Saturday night and all of the kids were drunk. I felt so bad for them. I don't understand why anyone would want to drink...
We went to Quanta's house after that. That was really nice. We hung out in Tom's sweet room, then we watched movies and ate the icecream (grasshopper pie- one of my faves.)
At about 20 of 4 (am) we went back to my car for the ride home. It really wasn't that bad. I was the only one that stayed up for the entire time. But it was cool because I really wasn't that sleepy. And the sun rise was beautiful. I think that it was 6:30 am ish when we got back to Newport...
And here I am now....LJing....hopeless :)
God Bless <>

The past few days have been so awesome!! I got through Tuesday with flying colors! On Tuesday there was a blood drive for our town fire chief (who has cancer and was in need of blood really bad), so I went with my pastor. It wasn't too bad, a ton better than the last time. This time I actually gave my blood and it didn't even hurt. It made the whole experience better when I found out that the person running the whold thing was an old family friend. (my step-dad's best friend - his wife was the one that took my senior pics) So that was really nice. When I got back to the shop Quanta and Tom were already there. (Thank you guys SO much for coming all the way from NH!!) We went to Irvings for lunch (which was good because I was a bit dizzy). Quanta and I got a mushroom swiss burger. It was so good. After that we all went back to the shop to hang out. It was great. Quanta = best surprise birthday present ever!! After a while we went to the lake (biggest man made lake in the US). When we were about to leave DJ and Tom came, the we all went back to the shop for Jell-o cake. It was sooo good!! GOOD DAY!!

Yesterday (Wednesday) was my pay-check day. (Always a good day) We went to Freeport and to Portland. I got an awesome pair of jeans at the Gap and also a new light blue cow-girl shirt. The mall was fun (orange chicken) Then I picked up Willis's present (Tv guardian DVD player) Now we can watch movies with swears in them :) because they will be edited!!!!!

Also in the past few days I've started to talk to Brandon again. That is always fun. Hes cool. I thought that we totally lost contact...

So I've been blessed with the past few days! I am happy! <>

Hehe.....Quanta I never knew...Hehe


Anyway...I got to de-stress myself last night...it is so nice reading Christian fiction. Becauase even though the characters are made up, the Christian principels aren't. When the characters have a bad day there is always the right verse to clam their nerves, and mine too. :)....Hehe happy day :)

So on my way to work today...and on the side of the road there is this turkey...just standing there...for some strange reason I was like "Wow, I love Maine"....I mean it was just a turkey, but thats what I absolutely love about it here. Deer, turkey, moose, etc. all on the side of the road doing their own thing....
Anyway......I'm reading a new book and I love it! It's the first fictional book that I've read that has the main characters having actual conversations with God...I love that....

This time we got a hotel for the 5 of us. Which, by the way, was the BEST IDEA EVER!! I got to take my newsed car...I felt like a proud parent or something! :) But anyway we got to hang out with Quanta (always a pleasure).....I think that I'm going to go becuase I am so tired!

...finally got my new car after spending almost $150 on insurance and reg. ug.....I don't really care though....I have been after that car since my mom brought it home on a test drive (when I had my permit)....and now it's mine (Greatest birthday present ever!!!!!)....I don't think that everyone will share in my love for the most beautiful car EVER but thats cool, I know that in their hearts they know it's true... :)...Seriously though that car was the first really nice thing that my mom ever had and she was able to give it to me.....God is good, really good!!

Well....I know that it's been a long time since I've written, and that I usually start like EVERY post like that....eh what can I say? Not much apparently....
Um...I've been getting a lot of good verses lately...praying, it's a fabulous thing...
anyway I've been having a lot of doubts about Nigeria lately (missions trip at the end of sept) you know the $ thing. It's like $1700 which isn't a lot of money, but still....I guess the old saying goes..."if you can't believe for a pair of socks, than you can't believe for a pair of shoes..." or something like that. It's not that I can't believe for it it's that it's just going to be hard. So for me having to believe for almost all if it is cool, it's really bringing me and God closer. I like that! :)
...Today was a really good day...we went to Portland to go to the museum of art (Briana's birthday gift). It took us forever to find it, and when we got there it was like 20 min before it closed. But.....because it was for her birthday the guy totally let us all in for free (also because it was going to close in 20 min)....I got to see some Monet paintings.....they were so amazeing...I felt like I was someone really important because I saw them in real life.....
Then we all scooted down to Wild Oats for some vegan cookies and chap stick... then off to the mall to visit with Quanta...but because the were running late (because of the blinding rain) Shawn and I walked around. Of course went to AE where I got the coolest pair of flip flops ($8...what a bargain) and a yellow tank. Hands down greatest store EVER!!! So we got to hang out with Quanta and Jess...that was cool.

Today was a cool day...I liked it a lot!

A nice day off.....
Wow I finally have a day off. 36 hours in 2 days really SUCKS!! I finally get to spend time with Evan (my brother). We all went to the park and walked around Newport for a few hours. Tomorrow we are going to see Scooby Doo 2. And my computer STILL doesn't work so I am going to get it fixed yet again, or better yet just get another one.....
Shawn and I went down to the lake today. I was sooooo nice! Nice enough for a light sweater and windy enough for a comfortable breeze. AAh........Tomorrow is supposed to be nicer.
I love it when my days off are nice ones :)

I <3 sales!!
I feel at such a loss by not being on for a few days. They have been cool, as per usual. I got to go out on a "date" with Shawn the other night. We went to the Hawaiian Paradise. Oh man it was so good, the we went to the Irving for cheesecake...yum...
We went shopping too. I got a new 18 piece paintbrush set with a canvas carrying bag. I can't wait to use them...I also got a sweet pair of old navy sleep capri. I'm only writing about them because they were only $3!! They are light blue with green clovers on them....Irish pride baby!!.....
Today we went to pick up by brother in Augusta today.....yea I'm so excited! On the way we stopped at Big Gs so we could get a snack....we got a cinnamon roll that was bigger than Shawn's head...no joke...and the best part is, that it was only $1.40...
Well I'm so happy...he he
God bless everyone who is reading this........

Ug...................I am so sick of dealing with people that really don't care for anyone else other than themselves and pretending that they care about you...........
I am not a stupid person, I mean I can't spell and sometimes I have the occasional Jessica Simpson moment, but I am not stupid and I just wish that *unsaid person* would realize that. I mean the Christian walk is hard enough not having to worry about whether someone you have to deal with in your church family is going to screw you over on any given day...........................................................
Ok my ranting is over. I really just want to run away some nights and not look back.


I mean am I being bitter and cynical?

Ug...I wish that I could have updated yesterday....I hate work...on the plus side I don't have to work till 11 tonight and I get the weekend off... Yea!!!!! I can't wait for my Easter Basket from my mom, hehe... Even though I'm 23 she still thinks of me as 6.... I'm not complaining, sometimes it's nice to not have to be an adult.

I feel a lot happier today. I guess I was in a rut of sorts. I don't know... All I know is that today I feel better...

I got to talk to Quanta last night...thats always fun. It's nice to talk to someone that you don't see everyday, even if it's about nothing at all...Those are the best conversations :)

$9 can buy me happiness.....
Fun day........ I got the Life House CD that I've been trying to burn for a really long time......
I listened to my symphonic Floyd cd today...It's been almost a year since I've listened to any classical...I just wanted to cry.......I just want to play again... and not the congas....Don't get me wrong I LOVE playing in a worship band (I'm gonna use the word but, but it's not the right word I just couldn't think of anything else to use) but I'm a classical musician. I feel like such a failier....
