The Results Are In

Well, after an extremely early start last Saturday to mine and Kyle's yardsale adventure, I can successfully say that this adventure might have been better had it been carefully and meticulously planned. But! It was fun hopping in the car, driving around aimlessly, yet careful hunting for signs on huge neon poster-board announcing where the sales are. We ended up venturing into quite a bit of Los Angeles territory, eventually we found ourselves in Altadena, where we found just the absolute perfect item to sustain us for the remainder of the adventure. MAD-LIBS!!! I don't know who came up with the idea, but they are a super genius. I filled in the blanks with everything from leaves to signs, to bugs. haha. Overall, just a great day with my best friend exploring and hanging out :)

Well, on Saturday, i plan to wake up way earlier than i should be on a weekend, drive around the city and look at tons of things that people just want to get rid of. Its kinda funny how people go around looking for items that some have deemed useless in the hopes of establishing them in their own lives as viable and useful. That's what I plan on doing... looking for treasures among trash. Maybe i'll find something cool that I can creatively alter or decorate and put in my new room. not yay for waking up early though.

New Beginnings, New Semester

Well, with the new year of 2011, come many many changes. I finally got my classes for Spring 2011 at APU, and will be taking: Introduction to Philosophy, Music and Civilization, a freshman required Beginnings course, Exodus/Deuteronomy, Introduction to Literature, and Public Communicaiton. It looks to be a full schedule and in addition to that, I will be attending chapel three times a week, as part of APU's requirements.

I'm so excited to start at APU, because I have many friends who already go there, and hopefully can help me get accustomed to my new schedule. I am also really excited for the upcoming semester because I have been given the opportunity to live on my aunt and uncle's third floor. It keeps me close to home, but not too far away, so that it is still relatively easy to commute. I am so thankful for them and my parents allowing me to live here:)
