Some "I"s


Inspired by my dear Bekah I am now posting a quick post of "I"s.

I am...
Excited about my client meeting in digital illustration tomorrow.
Thankful for my newfound Pintrest, even if the server (or something) is very bad.
Looking forward to Thanksgiving break!

I want...
to try this sock hair curly thing I saw on Pintrest. If it works I will WAY be stoked.

I pray...
for my family
for my Man who's seeking Him
for the rest of this semester

I think...
That having random items for making various holiday goodies is ABSOLUTELY FANTABULOUS!!!!!!

I need...
To shower and catch up on psych
To get started with Christ
mas idears
And to update my iPhone

I made...
Pumpkin spice muffins tonight

I read...
Barely ever these days.

I have...
a New Year's resolution in mind already to regain my senior high school expertise at sending things via real mail.

And also I am...
wearing pigtails for the first time ever since I was 2 in this pic. Crazy man!

How are my lovely followers? Check me out, actually posting DURING THE SCHOOL SEMESTER!!! *collective gasp* I feel bloggy, even tho I'm a bit behind in psychology...which is NOT as fun as I had anticipated. Anyway, what's up with me you ask?

Had a wonderfulawesomeblessed Saturday! I graduated to a green belt in TKD, testing is always fun stuff. Grandparents and GG have been visiting and came
to watch too! After we got home I pulled out the ol' sewing machine and sewed Honey's Instructor-in-training stripe along his gi collar and hemmed up his pants. He looks so handsome and I'm so proud he got that stripe. He gets to teach our TKD class while Mr. T is away and he is so excited (and I am too) :D. After my mad sewing skillz I grabbed my shopping buddy (Lou) and my chauffeur (Efum) and headed out to do some erranding. We made a SAVERS drop-off and Honey found an awesome shirt. Stopped at Sally's and I bought me some GiGi "Sugar Bare" wax. I did not have lovely luck with my last home wax can, as I utterly despise wax that is messy and doesn't ever come off OR bring offending hair off with it. But I tried this new stuff tonight and it works wonderful! It's water soluble so if you spill the wax all over you (which I always do) you can just rinse and restart. Ah-maze-in. Didn't know the Lord had created such cool stuff. Anyhoo, we went to Academy and Honey got some cool shoes to replace his holey ugly old ones. Sweetness! He then treated us two girls to Starbucks before we headed home (what a guy huh?!). However, my decidedly UNsalted caramel mocha frappe was yummy enough, but could have been made much better at home I think. We shall spare further detail, but suffice it to say that our "Reasons to go to Sweetbay instead of Starbucks" list got a lot longer :) Ended out the day watching BOLT with the fam over psychology homework. I am so thankful to have a sharp n smart honeyman to explain textbooks in english for me! He even drew me up some little illustrative doodles (now ur speaking muh language buddy boy! :P)!
This is him btw. Mhm :D


Moving past this day: I completed the James Challenge from wonderful church camp (I think, though I didn't keep very good track of what week was which). Love the book of James! Here's a lil snippet for thought: "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need" James 4:16. Mmmmm-mmm!

How's school for people? My school is quite busy busy and pretty challenging, but fun. Life's most surely different being IN the graphic design program...we're not a freshman anymore! It feels funny to peek into the freshman class and see their sceered looks and not actually be feeling it anymore. More and more competition every day, though I am qu

ite friendly with and very much enjoy my Graphic Design classmates (like all the same 12 people :P).
Currently praying for my favorite teacher, who no longer works for UAFS and is quite gone away. I took a class from him both semesters of my freshman year and his quirky unexpectedness was the only certain thing on campus that year. No professor yet has ever seen so much in me that I didn't know I had, and believed in me and my work to where he'd bet his life on it. The analogy I think of is teaching someone to use a sword, then putting an apple on your head and fully trusting your student to thwack it (the apple, not your head) clean off with a razor sharp blade. He praised the work in just the right way, was always super laid back, and (when he had to) tore me down with my own talent. I miss him and he could stand some prayers as a human being even though I'm not for sure what's going on.

A few other things:
  • I worked and consigned at the growing kids sale! So much fun and my earnings came back ok :)
  • SAVERs 50% day that happened recently was healthy for my wardrobe! Then my sweet mumsy bought me more cool garage sale findings as a surprise...Aeropastale! My favorite! <3
  • I have a really cute Zeke. Have you a really cute Zeke? You should.
  • I am a thankful and contented lil girly! I mean, read my post, ain't you jealous of me? ;)
  • Recent quote by mom, who found Caesar at our door one night: "Look what I found, it's a Marc in the dark. We will take him home. We will call him Clark." To those of you who do not recognize this as an amazing Dr. Seuss quote, I apologize but you're just not cool. These are the jokes people.
I can think of naught else to say, so I am off to fool around with my blog template...maybe :)

Summer's almost done?


School is about to start back up! Tell you what people, I have been SOOOOOO blessed this Summer! I've been thinking of some things that have been happy for me that I'm thankful for this season. Let's see...

Happy rest of the Summer everyone!

The Evolution of Meg's Macbook

Once upon a time on a day much like today, Meg awaited her little bundle of joy in an excited fashion. Finally it came at about 3 0'clock in the afternoon, in a state such as this:



Meg was delighted, as this was the expected appearance of her little dear in its early state of life. With a little assistance, the box transformed into this:


Meg pressed the power button located on the Macbook Pro's front side and prepared to enjoy the final stage of her Macbook's life cycle...or so she thought.

3 minutes later:




Gloom.

Despair.

Death.


The poor mutilated creature shriveled up into it's original cardboard cocoon to get sent off for burial back to the company while Meg awaited a new bundle of joy.





The End.




Part II

Evolution of Meg

Sitting in class at a huge Mac waiting for Mr. Sir to get here.

Yup, that's what's up. Digital Imaging class and then 2D Design later! My funnest classes, though they go really long. I've nothing really to say...school has been great, homework has been fun, my professors are all crazy. Yesterday I was emotionally out-of-wack and really tired so God said, "Aw, Meg it's not the end of the world. Know why? It's free ice cream day at school!" YAY!!!! And then I was happy. God really knows when to pull out that ice cream huh? 

Um...oh, guess what happened last night? I was fooling around with my homework trying to make it all extra artsy looking and THAT apparently altered the space-time continuum and make all the clocks go suddenly to 11:00pm! So, that's what happened last night if you're wondering why it suddenly flicked from 9 to 11. Well, 3 minutes till class is supposed to start. I'd better post up and get ready to see Mr. Dr Seuss-tee-shirt-with-a-sports-coat-over-it-with-jeans-and-cons. That's what Mr. Sir likes to wear :)

First Day of School!

Like, in my whole life. Seeing as we never had a Summer break from school while I was homeschooling, this was my first first day of school...college level. UAFS baby. The day started off purty good--before I left the house that is. Once I got there I circled around a zillion different parking lots for literally 20 minutes (at least). I finally found something, so we can all praise the good LORD that I'm not STILL out there driving around with ear steam fogging up my windshield. But, I was already late. So I call my mom that I found a parking place and whine for a bit, getting madder by the second. By the time I called...


this handsome fella, I was screaming mad and had no clue where I was (since I had parked approximately 19 miles away from school). But luckily for this mess of a princess, the knight was nearby to find me and dash to the rescue, accompanied by his trusty sense of direction! I stopped by bawling and he showed me that I was in the same state as the college after all, then went riding off into the sunset (AKA math class).

All good right? Not quite. When I actually got into a building I realized....I was wearing my prescription sunglasses and had left my real glasses in my car back in Mississippi! Great. So I spent that class time either blind as a bat, or in a dark room when I had to read the slides up on the wall. Oh boy. The teacher from that class made us all take as much toilet paper as we would need for a three day camping trip and then tell something about ourselves for each square we pulled. I still have it cuz we didn't get to my turn, but I did learn someone very useful to stay away from based off the information they gave...yikes.

Then I get out and ok, I need my real glasses for serious. So, knight in shining armor comes dashing in once again to show me where I parked my car while I looked about and hoped I could remember in a couple hours.

Then off to drawing class. Purty fun! But there are no chairs, so it was kinda awkward. But I did meet two girls who shared my major and had some of the same classes as me. Both freshman. One I met and kinda hooked up with at student orientation and she's real sweet, and the other seems nice too.

Then I went and found my car (yes, for real), got nice and lost, then went home. I think it's just mandatory that I take a scenic, roundabout way and then go home, since I find a different route every time. Oh well.

I got some homework done when I got home, and got all ready for my first second day of school. Which is...tomorrow. Must go to bed! Byebye now!

My Favorite Day of the Week!

Ah, how I love Sunday! Saturdays are fun, but Sunday is just the best. The LORD likes it too :)
We start the day getting up and getting dressed for church. I like this because I actually enjoy the church clothes I own this summer. Lots of colors to mix and match. We load up the instruments and head to Fellowship Bible Church for worship practice. Everyone soon starts showing up and there is an always excellent service. We head home for lunch with our R boys and spend the rest of the day just hanging out. Maybe playing frisbee golf, maybe watching sports, maybe writing a book, just resting and relaxing and thinking. Then around 5ish, our R parents swing by and grab Lane and I to go to First Baptist Church for the evening service. Always a wonderful service, with a great message. Bro. Dale is such an amazing teacher. When that's done we all head over to Marketplace for our "Sunday night date" :) This is also the time when Mom and Dad are having their Sunday night date at home. This is always a great time, especially when the admirable employee Typo L comes to be our server! We yammer and eat and generally have a lovely time... how about some pics?
