It's Been a While

I'm back.

For today, anyways.

I don't have internet yet at my duplex, hence not blogging for a while and the low activity on facebook.

I got on campus early this morning to pull tickets for the game (whoop) and now I have some time to kill before Anna and Hannah get here. At first I was trying to think of something to do, and then I remembered that I hadn't written on here in a while. So I headed straight to the SCC, which is completely packed, by the way.

It's the first day of school! I think I'm a nerd, because I absolutely love the first day of school. I have been walking around campus a little this morning, and seeing all these students everywhere makes me want to pee in my pants. I get postively ecstatic! I love the hustle and bustle of kids trying to make it to class. I love seeing the freshmen with their cute first-day-of-school outfits, Fish Camp t-shirts and their campus maps. I love seeing the Fish Camp counselors with their dyed hair leftover from camp. I love seeing people I know as I walk across campus. I love the poster sales in Rudder Plaza. I love seeing the corps people whip out to each other. I even love the people who give out free newspapers and then try to sell you a subscription.

I love the first day of school! I absolutely love Texas A&M. It's pretty much the best school in the universe.

I guess this means that the summer is officially over. That's weird, because it just started not too long ago. Well, about 3.5 months ago, but it just flew by really fast. Let's do a recap of what happened this summer:

- took a Texas history class and made a B
- started going to Coffee Station very regularly
- met a wonderful guy at Coffee Station
- learned a lot about wisdom
- had some awesome Bible studies with my sister
- took a trip home to visit my family
- started hanging out with the people from Coffee Station a lot
- learned a lot about fellowship and the Body of Christ
- took a trip to a farm in Leona
- learned how to shoot a gun and fish
- started hanging out a lot with the wonderful guy I met at Coffee Station
- drove to Cypress to visit Ashley
- took a Pilates class and passed (it was pass/fail)
- took a Statistics class and made an A
- went to tutoring for the first time in my life
- saw about a bajillion movies
- got visited by my family about 3 or 4 times
- took a trip to Houston with the wonderful guy I met at Coffee Station
- learned a lot about the power of prayer
- started dating the wonderful guy I met at Coffee Station
- prepared for my British friends to come
- went to Dallas, Ft. Worth, Denton, Little Elm and McKinney with my British friends
- drove to College Station
- hung out in College Station and waited for school to start

There's probably a lot more things that should be on that list. But that should give you a rough idea of what I've been up to!

Anna and Hannah are still here, of course, so we are trying to plan lots of stuff to do in B/CS. We went to see Hairspray last night, and they loved it. You can't stop the beat! That is a fun movie with an even funner (it's a word, trust me) soundtrack.

Hopefully, soon, Nana will call me and tell me she will be on campus soon with the girls. I am going to finish giving my campus tour and then we're going to the George Bush Library. I've been here for 3 years and I've never been there. I'll let you know how that goes.

I love life.
God is good.
I'm out!

I think you are pretty darn cool too. Just thought you should know. I'm glad you had a good summer. Mine blew my socks off personally.

I'm out!
