It was calendar-worthy.

It was calendar-worthy.

Oh yea. Craft weekend. A much needed, girly weekend. It started out with a quick run to Hobby Lobby to pick up all the necessities…

Next was Chinese food!!

dsc00170The General Tso’s chicken was from the frozen aisle in Wal-Mart and I promise you it was a good as anything I’ve ever gotten at a Chinese place. You should check it out sometime. 

Craft time came next!!

dsc00175There was watercolor painting, paper burning and modge-podgeing, greeting card making, and popsicle-stick basket making. It was fun and only one little hot-glue gun mishap on my part. Not too shabby.

Then we watched Fireproof. Acting=No good. Story=fantastic. I’d encourage everyone to see it!

The next day we went and had a girly afternoon: trying on dresses, seeing Confessions of a Shopaholic, eating at Cheddars, and looking at bridal magazines at BooksAMillion. 

Nothing too much has happened today because nasty classes start again tomorrow. Bummer. Back to reality.


Name That Tune!

I’ve seen this done a lot and I always think it’s so fun to play, even though it’s mostly people I don’t know all that well and mostly just play by myself without commenting… It’s whatev.

So I went on itunes and put my settings on shuffle. These are the first lines of the first 20 songs to come up. Your job is to guess the songs and artists. DON’T GOOGLE THEM. That’s lame and absolutely zero fun. So don’t be a loser. If you know them, guess. And don’t be hesitant. We don’t have to be besties for you to guess.

1. Baby, I know you’re hurting. Right now you fee like you could never love again. Now all I ask is for the chance to prove that I love you.

2. Here’s a  night, and it shines. And it calls us on and on.

3. Here I am. One more day of not loving him the way he asks.

4. I waited til I saw the sun. Don’t know why I didn’t come.

5. Strummin’ my pain with his fingers. Singin’ my life with his words.

6. In a deep breath it all starts to change.

7. Wake up! Do you hear the sound of music from above?

8. Searching the world, the lost will be found.

9.Don’t fall asleep yet. We haven’t found a cure for what you have and I need you here for one more night.

10. We all know the girls that I am talking about.

11. Tell me where our time went and if it was time well spent.

12. Now I’m woken up from my peaceful slumber by a truthful voice so penatrating.

13. Let now the weak say I have strength by the spirit of power that raised Christ from the dead.

14. Little town, it’s a quiet village. Everyday like the one before.

15. Good God, if your song leaves our lips, if your work leaves our hands, then we will be wanderers and vagabonds.

16. She’s got a baby inside.

17. A scrub is a guy that thinks he’s fly and is also known as a “bus-ta”

18. On a monday, I am waiting. By Tuesday, I am fading. And by Wednesday, I can’t sleep.

19. We should get jerseys, ’cause we make a good team.

20. Hey pretty baby with your high heels on, you give me fever like I’ve never, ever known.

Yea, so a few are a bit more than just the first line, but I didn’t like the way they ended so I added the next little bit. It’s my game, I make up the rules. 🙂 Have fun!

Spring Semester=Cake Walk

Well, I have an exam tomorrow. So of course I do the logical thing… blog for the first time in months. Procrastination at its finest.

So big news in the life of Stephanie… I’m 99% sure I’ll be spending my summer in the Big Apple! The Gallery Church in NYC has approved me to be one of their summer interns! Now I have to be approved by the NY Southern Baptist Convention and the NAMB, but I don’t think there will be many problems. I prayed specifically that if this is where God wanted me, that it would happen and it’s happening! God is so good.

I have a feeling if I go to NY, I’ll blog a lot more often. Think of all the crazy-neat people I’m going to run into (figuratively, but probably literally too…) up there. It’s like a completely different world. I’ll probably get chewed up and spit out, but all for the glory of God baby!!!

This semester has been easy. Almost too easy. I feel like any day now I’m going to come to the awful realization everything is due the next day, but looking at my planner, I’m not sure that will actually ever happen. I think I have one of the most simple semesters ever…

  • Advanced Public Speaking- No tests. Online, open-book quizzes. Stand up and talk for a total of 20 minutes for an A. I think I’ve got that covered.
  • Foundations of Speech- Six open-book quizzes and two 2-minute speech. Check.
  • Group Dynamics- Play games in class. Go to the animal shelter once a week and play with dogs. Got it.
  • Parliamentary Procedure- One test. Three 20-minute “meetings” across the whole semester. Piece of cake.
  • Interpersonal Communication- Three tests. Two papers. And that’s my “hard” class.

It really can’t get much easier than that. Welcome to the life of a Speech Communication major. All you nursing and engineering majors are jealous. I know I would be. 

Well, I really must get back to reading the 170 PAGES I need to read about Interpersonal Communication. Really? Who could write that much about identity and nonverbal communication? Lame.

I’ve never been more ready for a break than I am right now.

My head is so congested I think I’m going to fall over when I stand up.

I really just want to sllleeeeeeeeppp. Too bad I’ve got 4 exams and a group speech to get ready for in the next 5 days.

Wish me luck.

I have to turn in a persuasive speech on Friday and my friend, Meredith, and I are giving the pros and cons of dogs and cats. I wanna know what everyone else thinks. There’s a poll and I’d REALLY appreciate a comment with your reason for liking one over the other. THANKS 🙂

I voted for McCain. I truly believe McCain would’ve been a good president.

With that said, I think it’s ridiculous how many people think the world is ending.

Barack Obama is not the Antichrist. Our country will not fall to shambles in 4 years.

Breathe. Relax.

God is sovereign.

We are given a Biblical COMMAND to respect and submit to our authority.

Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1

Now is not the time to think and dwell on all of the “what-ifs” and the “should’ve beens.” Now is the time to lift our new leadership up in prayer. They are real people, guys. God loves them just as much as He loves you and me. Pray for discernment and wisdom as they try and fix the mess our country has become.

And if nothing else will ease your worries, think about the fact we saw history made last night. How awesome is it to see our country break the race barrier that’s be up for so long. There were older African-Americans who fought for the right to simply have the privilege to vote during the Civil Rights movement who were able to cast their hard-fought vote FOR an African American yesterday. And he WON! Our kids and our kids’ kids will learn about yesterday in their history class. And we had the privilege to see it happen.

Our country is in desperate need of prayer right now. Lift it up. God is sovereign and faithful. Don’t lose hope in that because at the end of the day, that’s all we have. GOD IS GOOD.

I know. I know…

It’s been way too long since I’ve written in this thing. I’ve just had so much to do and no inspiration to blog. I still don’t have much, but I figure I may as well just push through it and try and write something.

I watched the debate last night. It was… interesting. I got tired of the candidates ignoring the flashing red light that was there to stop their rambling. I felt like both of them repeated everything I’ve already heard and no one really made a clear impression. I’m still for McCain, but I’m starting to doubt the chance of him winning. It’s easy to get carried away and think it’ll be the end of the world if Obama wins. I admit, it makes me a little uneasy to think of a country run by him, but I have confidence in the fact that no matter what happens, God will accomplish His will. And HE will receive glory through all of this.

I broke down and called Old Navy to work over fall break. I haven’t been working since this summer, and it’s been a great break. I’m starting to feel it now though, so a few hours and a couple extra bucks won’t hurt.

Speaking of fall break, I’m going to have a 5 1/2 day fall break. How awesome is that?

It’s raining today for the first time in about a month, and I don’t exactly hate it. In fact, I’m kind of enjoying it. I’ve gotten an excuse to wear my rainboots two days in a row. And everyone knows what rainboots are good for… JUMPING IN PUDDLES! Last night we went on a prayer walk in the rain, over to the main quad. Meredith and I both enjoyed our walk over there and jumped in every puddle we walked past. Then we got to pray for our campus and for the faculty here. It was an awesome time. It was five other girls and myself and they are all just so sweet. God has blessed me by surrounding me by some awesome Christian girls. We got to pray for each other and for things going on in our lives and for the crusade. It was just a sweet time of fellowship.

There’s a little update on my life. Sorry it’s brief. I’m leaving to get advised for the FIRST time since I’ve been at this school. I’m a little confused about how it all works and how I got looked over, but whatever. It’s all getting worked out!
