Depressing Friday...

Why does the snow have to come? If it didn't come Moriah would be on her way by now and we would be going to the Genevan's Movie Night tonight together. Ugh....

I also had my RA interview today. It is so hard to feel like the interview went ok when you had to tell them your weaknesses. I feel like no one will want to hire me when I tell them I am prideful and a procrastinator. But I answered the questions truthfully and I know that in the end the Lord will put me where he wants me.

I want some coffee and a good cheer-up movie :)

Teenage Dream - Glee - a great cheer up song!

Umm..I lied.

Wow. I didn't even post two Thursdays in a row.

Can you believe this weather? It was so beautiful in Beaver Falls two days in a row. When the weather is that nice I can't stay indoors. We played volleyball in the sand and took walks. I just wanted to close my eyes and soak it all in (I know that sounded cliche but I knew it wasn't going to last long). And sure enough today it got cold again. It is supposed to be even colder tomorrow. These past couple of days were like a tease or maybe a reminder of what we can look forward to when it is actually Spring.

This past week was not only full of nice weather but also good movies. I watched Good Will Hunting for the second time. Definitely one of my favorite movies. I love how the Psychologist shows his love for his wife. I definitely hope someone loves me like that someday. The other movie was Oh Brother Where Art Thou. I knew this was a good movie but no one ever told me what it was about. I was so surprised and yet thrilled. Such a funny movie. I loved the random music and Delmar. "We thought you was a toad.." :). I think my life has been fulfilled after seeing that movie...well not really but you know what I mean.

This has been a crazy weekend not only because we watched the crazy movie Oh Brother Where Art Thou but because of the disaster of google maps. This morning at around 11:00 we left to go shopping. Sylvia, Ariel, Steph, Jenny, and I are all staying at Mim's house to watch their dog while her and her family are visiting their sister in Philadelphia. We decided to go shopping at Marshall's and Ross Park Mall. We made it to both of those places safe and sound. But after shopping we wanted to get a bite to eat. I suggested Cracker Barrel because I could get 20% off and so that is where we decided to go. Ariel put the address into her iPhone and we left. Well the google map's app on her phone took us to the middle of some random houses outside of Pittsburgh. We didn't really know where we were. But we were starving so we kept driving for a half hour until we found a seafood restaurant that looked pretty good. We went in, the waiter seated us, and then we looked at the menus...$20 a plate??? We knew we couldn't afford that so we nonchalantly walked out. I was so embarrassed but I don't think anyone noticed except probably our waiter when he came back to an empty table. We walked down the sidewalk to a random Pizza Joint and made sure the prices were to our liking before we even went in (the menu was taped to the door). Although not as nice as the seafood place, the food and service was splendid. After going way out of our way for Cracker Barrel we ended up eating and enjoying Calzones and Hoagies. It was a very weird evening. But we made it back to Mim's house okay.

We are heading back to Beaver Fall's tomorrow afternoon. I miss my room and my bed. I am tired of being gone or having someone over every weekend. It would be nice just to have one chill weekend. But I am soooo looking forward to having my sister come up and stay with me in a week. Hopefully we can find something fun to do on campus while she is here.

Well I must be going to bed.

Next Thursday

It is Thursday again. That awkward day in between the week and the weekend. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel but you just aren't there yet. Well on these awkward days I have chosen to write on this blog. As you can tell I haven't done this in a while so I chose a day of the week to do it. Every Thursday I will post...I promise you (Mom).

This week has gone by pretty well. I had a Bible test on Wednesday but since they give all the answers to it a couple nights before it was a breeze. This weekend Molly and I are hosting a perspective student in our room. This is always strange because you have no idea what the person is like so you can't really plan anything all weekend until you meet her.

I have applied for a Resident Assistant position for next semester here at Geneva. I have to go through two interviews in order to even get through the first round. Then I have to job shadow and have a formal interview if I get through the first round. I already had my first interview and it went really well. I have a group interview tonight. The Resident Life Staff just want to see how we work in groups, how well we lead, etc. I am pretty nervous about this whole process so I would really appreciate prayer. I will officially know if I made right before spring break.

This week began with a huge praise!! First of all I went home this past weekend and discussed with my parents about taking on a summer job here on campus. I wasn't sure how they would feel about it but in the end they thought it was a good idea. I was going to work at Cracker Barrel but my hours aren't going to be consistent. The job offered here on campus is a consistent 40 hrs a week all summer. By the end of the weekend my parents and I decided that I should go for the job. And so as of now I going to live here in Beaver Falls during the summer. I am really excited about the opportunity but I also know that it is going to be hard and probably a little lonely.

I have to get this horrendous room cleaned before this perspective student comes. Enjoy the weekend!! It is coming, I promise.
