Well, that's about all I have for now. I've been thinking about and praying for you guys going back to school today. I know you all are going to do great. See ya soon.

- AK Rowdies (they sit together and cheer at sports games)
- Students for Life ( this is a pro-life student organization, not me commiting to be in college forever)
- Associated Student Government
- College Republicans
- Campus Focus ( this is the campus ministry group)
- ZPN (Zips Programing Network- they plan a lot of the on campus events)
After signing up for clubs I went to the soccer game to cheer them on. They beat Cleveland State 3-0. Go Zips! Right after the game was over I got a call from Piano Boy. Then I talked to Belle for a while and finished with JR. During these conversations I missed a call from my Mom so I called her back and talked to everyone else at home as well. After all of this chating I think I have reached a record even I didn't think was possible. I talk on the phone for an hour and a half. It shocks me even, but it was nice to hear from people at home and get caught up with things.
Finally I met my bathroom mate after 3 days of being here. She must have just moved in today or something. Her name is Annie and she seemed nice. Now I'm just trying to prepare myself for classes starting tomorrow. I have a full schedule starting at 8:50 and going until 2. I'm hoping that everything goes well and that I'm not bombarded with homework, but I really don't know what to expect. I don't like being the unexperienced freshman all over again, but I guess I'll have to deal with it.
Well, that would be my day in review. I'm sure I'll be updating tomorrow with a report on how classes went. Gives you a little something to look forward to right?

Today (saturday) I went bowling. I also signed up for the AK Rowdies club. They go to home games and cheer on the team. I think it will be fun, and it gets me involved on campus. It also gives me an excuse to go to the soccer games. It amazes me that even though I only played for 1 season, I still really miss it. The first soccer game is tomorrow at 5pm, so I'm looking forward to that.
Tonight they had an event at the National Inventers Hall of Fame, which is down the street from campus. They started off with the resident assistants from each dorm do a little lip syncing performance. That was entertaining. Then afterward it was a casino themed event. They gave us tokens and raffle tickets, but that didn't help me much because I don't know how to play the gambling card games. Instead I put my tokens in the slot machine to get rid of them, but I kept winning more. I finally got rid of them. My ticket got pulled for the raffle and I won a $25 gift card to Olive Garden.
Tomorrow is the big welcome assembly where they will have all of the information about clubs and such. I will probably update tomorrow about what I join. Until then, I miss you all. Keep praying for me. I will see you soon and update even sooner.

Ok, that's enough dramatizing for one post. On a serious note, tomorrow really is an important day. A day that I have had mixed emotions about for probably somewhere around the time frame of a year. Most of these emotions have left me dreading this day, but as of recently I have had a change of mind. For the majority of the past year I have had the recurring thought process of "this is going to be so hard, and I don't know how I can survive leaving everyone and everything I have ever known and care about behind, etc. etc". However, over the past couple of weeks, instead of thinking about all of the negative things, I came to the realization that I shouldn't be having negative feelings about being obedient to God. I am taking a step into my destiny by doing this, and this is what God has for me at this time, so of course I can survive.
I am very thankful for this shift in thinking because I originally expected these last few weeks to be the hardest ones, but in reality the opposite happened. I think that I am as ready as I can be
for college, and though it's not going to be easy, it is definately do-able.
So, I'm all packed up and "ready" for whatever happens. My blog is ready too. We promise to update more often than we have in the past. So don't worry, you'll be hearing from me.

Why do birds sometimes pick a single vehicle to make a mess on? Do they have a warped sense of humor or are they not capable of this kind of thought?
When Belle & I went to Cedar Point last week, the stupid seagulls pooped on my car eight times while leaving every other car in the surrounding rows clean. Why is that?
* Please notice that I have now posted 2 days in a row. How's that for making up for a postless July? That deserves be a pat on the back for self. Good Job Super-K! *

And I painted with Shagga Bear:
