1. fly on a broomstick or move things with your mind?

2. Grow wings or develop an ability to see the future?
Wings. The future isn’t exciting when you know what it is.

3. Go to Mars or go to Faeryland?
Fairyland. More social interaction there. As far as I know, there is no life on Mars.

4. Go looking for trolls or take a ride on a dragon?
Ride on a dragon. The thought is pretty cool.

5. Stake out a vampire coven or eat steak with one?
Stake out. Much more excitement.

Black and white world. I hate confinement.

8. Find out your teacher is actually an alien or find out your parents are wizards and witches?

9. Drink a mochalatte with Yoda or have a glass of water with The Lady of the Lake?
Lady of the lake. I hate coffee.

10. Have a pixie as a pet or a flying alligator?

Fun one!

*EDIT* I was awarded the summer research stipend! Woo hoo! For 45 hours of research, I get one research credit, and I will also get a $2000 stipend for working this summer. That should basically pay for fall’s tuition. Wow!!

If you do this one, tell me!

1. Who do you always consider a close friend, even though you never talk?
Monique, Mikaela (Although we talk a lot lately. :)), Daisy, Carissa, Josh, Sarah

I try not to figure out who people are when I first meet them. Any times I have guessed as to who they are, I’ve been right.

3. Who would you like to see get punched?
Ooh, pick me! Then I can defend myself and punch you back. He he…

4. Whose underwear, other than your own, did you see last?
Well, when you live with family or friends it is generally inevitable.

Kasey, Audra, Saroj. Can’t just drop by…:(

WHAT:

1. What’s the best time to go to bed/wake up?

Food. 🙂 How can I actually eat and do it for cheap…Hmm, what a dilemna. How about move back in. He he…

7. What was the last thing you’ve learned?
I’ve learned that my sleep schedule is offically wacked. I took a three hour nap today. Before lunch. Now it is only 1, and I feel ready for bed again. What the heck?!

8. What’s your first memory of your best friend?

Sarah:Ha ha…I remember going to the library with Sarah. A “normal person” thought I was a geek. Who goes to the library with a person they don’t know and gets a bazillion books. Novels. Not glam mags. But that is so Sarah. Who wants glam magazines when we could play extreme spoons or stay up until 12:34 at night.

Josh: Hmmm, let’s see. I remember being at the park, and he was talking about books. “Till We Have Faces” I think. I thought the world was ending. A guy that was literally having a literary conversation with me! Never stop being cool like that, friend!

Kasey: That was a long time ago. I just remember both of us were way too quiet. 🙂

Audra: You were a running freak and climbing freak, and I LOVED it. If it wasn’t for you, I never would have run a half marathon or done some sweet climbing.

Bonnie: I thought you and my sister should zip the lip. I mean, we were learning to kill people here. Things should be much more serious. 🙂 Loved you lots then and now though.

Carly: The coolest. She was my babysitter. He he…I idolizer her and wanted to be just like here. Be a missionary, have an amazing walk with God, shop “vintage”. 🙂

Patricia: Um, I first met you at biblestudy. I remembered seeing you around town all through highschool. I thought you were really pretty and just couldn’t stop wondering what kind of person you were.

Joe: I didn’t know what to think of you. I wondered why you kept wanting to read the lyrics on my freaking shoes. Still don’t know what to think of you. He he… 🙂

Justin: Met you at a restaurant. Then saw you at the dollar store and sadly didn’t recognize you, so wondered why the heck you were “stalking me”. That was a good story to tell you later.

Terry: You just appeared one day. I thought it was awesome to meet someone who had been to Africa and knew what I was talking about when I talked about stars and being small.

Ben: I remember you as the guy I saw around at youth group stuff or around town with a red backpack. Seriously every time I saw you, you were wearing it. Then I met you and found out all the amazing things you have done, and I thought it was amazing!

Alisha: It was in a speech class, and you made some rockin’ awesome tamales. Then you went to help out with Katrina damage over spring break, and I thought that was amazing. I loved how you were always smiling. 🙂

9. What kind of animal would other people say you were?

WHERE:
1. Where’s the last place you spent more than $50 at?
I paid a bill for gas in my car. More than fifty!

Socks, so I go through a lot. Lots of holey socks which I can’t stand.

Well, let’s see, enough to pay for school, cause I’d still finish, enough to travel and do missions work and see everything, enough to pay entry fees for all my races, enough for clothes once in a while, enough for food, enough for a street bike, enough for a dog, enough for some place to stay. I dunno…I’ll get back to someone with that.

Interview!

I’m being interviewed! 🙂

Here are the questions:

1. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hopefully, I will have one more year of vet school left. Or maybe two if it takes me a little bit longer than I expect to get in. Taking my tests for certification and all that…:)
2. What is your favorite book and why?
“Till We Have Faces” by CS Lewis. It is one of the few books I have read that I could read over and over and over and still have things to glean from it. You know a writer is excellent when he can put into words what you feel.
3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Africa. 🙂 Everything about the place intrigues me. The people, the environment, landmarks. God has given me a love for African orphans.
4. How would you describe your “perfect mate”?
Taller than me. 🙂
Seeks God in all he does, including our relationship
Good relationships with his family members
Is obsessed with me and has no baggage as far as other girls go 🙂
Wouldn’t mind adopting
Has some same interests-backpacking, paintballing, reading, watching movies, or anythign of the sort.

5. What is your greatest weakness?
I don’t trust people. I always expect to be hurt, so I never fully open up. It seems like the few times I have trusted, I’ve gotten hurt. I guess it comes down to solely trusting God and finding my fulfillment in Him. Transparency and strength are two things I have not figured out how to mix.

Things…

Reading: Textbooks! “iGenetics”, “Exploring Evolution”, some ecology textbook, “Calculus”, and “Understanding Chemistry”. Talk about exciting stuff! 🙂

Music in my Head: Nothing really. Mentioning music in my head brings a few to mind, but nothing is irritatingly stuck necessarily.

Drinking: Nothing. Last stuff I drank was probably water.

Wishing: For God’s will for my life. Open my eyes and show me!

Considering: Life in general. I have a bad habit of analyzing way too much. I come to a situation and have to figure it out to every last detail. I am working on just enjoying life. Period.

Feeling: A little tired and hoping to catch up on some sleep. I do not see that happening anywhere in the near future however.

Goals: Enjoy life regardless of circumstances, do some more research on the options I am considering careerwise, stop worrying and analyzing every last detail, exercise self control in a certain life area, and be a better pool player.

To do list: Nothing much really. Homework is at an all time low. And who’s complaining? Certainly not me!

Hours spent in bathtub last night: Zero. I haven’t taken a bath in months. To clarify I have certainly showered, just not relaxed in a bath. There is not enough time in life for that one.

Things accomplished: I got a hold of Lindsay again which reminds me prayer for her would be greatly appreciated. I hope to show her Jesus’ love. I also put some streaks in my hair. I had a little too much time in my hands.

Hoping: I will hear Him more clearly everyday and understand Him more.

My Day and a Quote

I am loving my new semester schedule! Yeah, I get tired at like 6:30 in the evening, because of how early I get up, but I am certainly liking early mornings more than late nights. I had five classes straight this morning-non-stop 8 to 1. Get ’em all done in one fell blow! Anyway, I am not sure what it is, but I seem to have less homework. I am not embracing that fact too soon just in case it picks up. Sure, I had 16 pages of calculus yesterday, but at least I didn’t struggle through all of it. And I have like 50 pages of reading, a chemistry chapter summary, calc problems, and genetics problems to do this weekend, but it just isn’t as stressful. My hypothesis (not theories as stressed in evolution/ecology this morning) are that maybe I am not as uptight as last semester after everything God brought me through, maybe I am used to the whole college thing, or maybe my day off tomorrow-really helps me balance the work load. I need to be quiet now. I’m rambling…

A new favorite quote compliments of Jill at 33 and bravo: “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves.” ~Rilke

My mind is so random, the things that pop into it cannot generally be explained. 🙂

My relationship with God, my family, school, some new friends.

16. What can you tell about a person by kissing them?

I don’t really think about that stuff right now.

19. If you were to wake up from being in a coma for an extended period of time, name some people you would want to see around your bed?
Well, hopefully a few members of my family would be there…depending on how long I’d been out. 🙂 Uh, some friends as long as they weren’t scattered across the planet by that time. A definate possibility with my friends…

20. How many kids do you want to have?

Three and Highlights

Three things that scare me: failure, cold dark water, betrayal

Three people who make me laugh: Audra, “Jack” the dog (story later), and James Herriot [I just realized how odd this list is]

Three things I love: doing things on my list of things to do before my life is over (like ice fishing!!), good fiction books, dogs

Three things I hate: ice cream with nuts or baked goods in it, arguments, popularity/cliques

Three things I don’t understand: Relationships, why people have no sympathy or respect for others or things or animals, the mind of Einstein

Three things on my desk: weekly planner, 2000 piece puzzle to return (I have a duplicate one), and pictures of friends

Three things I’m doing right now: writing this meme out, thinking about “Jack”, and thinking of all the things I have to do before school starts.

Three things I want to do before I die: adopt an african baby boy, swim the english channel (this is a new idea of mine), and run a marathon

Three things I can do: several thousand piece puzzles, ice fish, and drive in the ice and snow

Three things you should listen to: “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes, “Black Balloon” by Goo Goo Dolls, and “She’s Everything” by Brad Paisley

Three favorite foods: ice cream, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli

Three beverages I drink regularly: water, orange juice, and milk

Three TV shows/Books I watched/read as a kid: Bill Nye the Science Guy, Reading Rainbow, and Arthur

Three blogger friends that I am going to tag: You, you, and you (Whoever wants to do it.)

Well, I guess I took an extended leave of absence for the holidays. Good times! Here are some highlights:
-Saw “Night at the Museum”. Great movie! I would recommend it.
-Battle for Contentment is getting easier.
-Reading “Every Young Woman’s Battle” and “That Hideous Strength”. Both are five star books.
-Researched more graduate schools and came up with a few more options.
-Made snowpeople with Aubry after our giant snowstorm.
-Made a snow fort with Josh, Sarah, Laura, and Amelia.
-Sledded with Kasey, Audra, Carly, and Carissa on Sunday.
-My friend is engaged and I am a bridesmaid!!!! I am giving in to wearing a dress, but crossing my fingers that visions of pink bridesmaids do not dance in my friend’s head.
-Went to a concert where I found an abandoned dog whom I rescued. The shelter was closed, so he came home with me for the night. Well, one night turned into two since the shelter was closed New Year’s. He ended up going ice fishing with my Dad and I (Which was a blast by the way). He was a great dog! He ended up sleeping in my bed last night since he was scared of the coyotes or wolves he heard while in the mudroom. Anyway, he wouldn’t stay on the floor, and considering it was two in the morning, I was in no position to argue. We dropped him off at the shelter today to see if his owners come find him. It was very sad to say bye. I had a dog for a few days. 🙂 I “named” him Jack, hence Jack the dog making me laugh.

*Edit* Trebonte asks when the money for my missions trip is due. I changed my dates to June 28th to July 14 since my friend is getting married, and I am in the wedding. I assume that I would need the money before June 28th. *End Edit*

Random Words

I am writing what first comes to mind at the three words that the last person doing this tag came up with. I will then come up with three new words and tag someone.

Purple For some reason, I think of one of my friend’s pillowcase and comforter. Don’t ask me why. It is this bright purple thing with flower all over it. Who knows why that came to mind. That reminds me of that party she had where I dressed up like a guy. I was told I make a cute guy. Ahem, but that was NOT A COMPLIMENT!! 🙂
Folk Um, I think of hillbillies. Like Ozark hillbillies. Ooh, I want to go to Missouri! I could be a resident of the Ozarks. Maybe I will become a hillbilly. 🙂
Pinecone My sister and brothers made these turkeys for Thanksgiving out of pinecones. Then they gave one to my friend Saroj when he came for Thanksgiving dinner. Ha, that was funny. That also leads me to think about that day my Mom said one of my friends from school was coming for dinner. The friend of my Mom got this funny look and did that whole “Ah, I see” thing. It should have been clarified that this guy coming for dinner was a FRIEND!! 🙂 Ha ha, I was amused.

In conclusion, I find that my mind works in a very train of thought type of manner. I go from one thing to the next in a matter of seconds. In my mind at least. 🙂

Okay, I tag Erin.
My words are:
~Sweatshirt
~Spork
~Periodic Table
