It's finals week on campus and sleepless nights, movie-watching, and delirium is in full swing.

Yesterday, I watched part of "Grease" in the Rug Room, which was the 5th movie in a row that some students were watching while "studying."

I am tempted to question their study habits. But alas, I am not their mother.

The days have been very F-U-L-L.
  • I've made selections for the Chile and Nigeria May mission teams and have held our first meeting. (I'm leading the Chile trip!)
  • I'm trying to solve roommate conflicts and room change shuffles.
  • I've worked a few days until 11:30 pm.
  • I coordinated a Gingerbread House building competition between the halls and spent $100 on frosting and candy. Now I owe the winning hall some homemade goodies.
  • I attended the GFU vs NCU basketball game at Fox and the familiar ache returned to me as I drove away.
  • I had a very confusing meeting with my boss that has left me feeling emotional, conflicted, and confused. A giant "?" is all I see in my future.
  • I'm getting ready to go to Mexico for 10 days with 7 students. (Jan. 2-10)
  • I've cried... in a meeting, in chapel, on the bathroom floor. Mostly because I want to badly to say "YES" just like Mary did when the angel approached her about conceiving the Savior of the world. I just don't know exactly what that "yes" entails quite yet.
  • I waitressed at the Late Night Breakfast and got to wear reindeer antlers and a green striped apron with a cupcake on it.
  • I wore an ugly Christmas sweater and black stirrup leggings with red snowflakes on them.
  • I didn't get a Christmas tree this year and my apartment is devoid of any festive cheer. :(
  • I haven't done any Christmas shopping.
  • My best friend got married.
  • I'm wondering if it's really vacation if I still have to be on-call. *sigh*
I'm not burnt out, so why am I tired?

Will you meet me here and put your arm around me? I want to rest more than my head on your chest; I want to rest my mind.

wow. you sound busy. wow again, have you ever noticed how unphonetically correct that word is.. the "u" makes an "i" sound... the "s" makes a "z" sound and the "y" makes an "e". what's the deal with that? sorry, i was distracted by the word "busy" and then by my own made up word "unphonetically".

yes. that's always the question isn't it... what is God asking?

are you getting enough iron in your diet... that could be why you're tired.

or the fact that you are juggling a million projects, feelings, and cares.

peace out, my sister in christ. may God bring you wisdom and love... because without love, it's all a waste, according to the bible.
