Can you say GROSS?

I'm sitting at my house... wait. No I'm not. I'm sitting in my DORM ROOM... underneath my loft bed. How weird is that!?

Hi friends! For those of you that don't know already, I transferred to an amazing little college in an amazing little town in the middle of an amazing little state. Okay, that's not completely true. Kansas isn't really THAT little... but it's smaller than Texas. :)

I am absolutely loving the campus, the people, the atmosphere of my dorm (McCreery Girls ROCK! WOOT!), my R.A. Candice, my professors, my awesome advisers, and the administration that has been so helpful to me. It's a lot cooler today, which is really nice. I enjoyed going to a variety show that the college staff and R.A's put on last night. It was entertaining... and white shirts - you guys were TOO FUNNY! HA... some of you people back home might not understand, but that's okay. I don't really know how to explain it other than by saying that is was basically like a mime act with high-pitched screaming and running around like wild banshees. So anyway, that was a lot of fun.

I almost ate a rat.

That too, is something that you people back home won't understand. I was selected out of the audience (THANKS KAYLA AND SALIMA!) and blindfolded. Then I was told to grab things out of a cup and eat them, while identifying them as fast as I could. At one point I reached in and grabbed a handful of fur... and then the fur moved. I screamed and when they took the blindfold off, I saw a white mouse (That was ALIVE) in the cup that I had just put my hand in. Can somebody say GROSS? Yes... gross. That's what it was. Then, rumors started flying that I was crying when I walked off of the stage ... because I was laughing so hard that tears were coming out of my eyes.

Ha. What a night.

Classes started today too. I took Intro to Children With Special Needs this morning, as well as Fundamentals of Teaching Reading. Then, this afternoon, I took Language Arts for Elementary Teachers. They were all very interesting and reaffirmed the fact that Elementary Education is exactly the major that God wants me in.

Well, thanks for reading all this randomness... come visit again soon!

By His Grace,


  1. Oh my. The way I feel about rodents, that would have just finished me off!

    Hope you enjoy your Special Needs class. I have one of those students...who is also my 16 yr old son.

  2. Oh, I would have screamed at the mouse. It sounds like you are enjoying college life in a good way :) :) :) Enjoy your time there!!! I loved college. I only had to live one quarter in the dorms, otherwise I was fortunate to live off campus. One time my friends and I did a scavenger hunt through the city. That was fun!!! Have a great weekend. Randomness is fine!!! Your stories were fun!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
