TODAY is a beautiful day. In about 9 hours, I am leaving for spring break in IRELAND! (Yes, it's 3 am and I am just starting to pack. It would appear everything is right on schedule... :) But I don't even care... because SOON, I will soon be in one of my favorite places in the whole wide world (GREYSTONES!) with one of my favorite people (PAUL!). I am positively giddy. God is so good.

Greystones, I'm a comin! Blog, I'll catch you on the flipside! Love.

In my researching of grad schools (for a senior capstone assignment), I have discovered that I really would like to continue my education. There's so much out there to learn! I had never considered it before, but now I like the idea... (Oh, except that I have no money. Shoot.)

Anyway, I have fallen in love with Mars Hill Graduate School... (from what their website portrays, anyway).Everything about it is beautiful. And it's in Seattle. I want to live there. With my friend, Julia, who goes there. It would be perfect!

... Stupid money.

Oh, and I stumbled upon this.

I really, really, really want to go. Hmmm...

Lazy Sunday.

I'm currently sitting in my living room with my roommate, Kaitlyn - it was just the two of us here this weekend. It's Sunday afternoon and we are in our pajamas, sipping our morning coffee, waking up, and watching "The Runaway Jury."

We both had every intention of getting up at 7:30 and going to church. But somehow, we both didn't hear our alarms that we set the night before (for Daylight Savings Time). So here we sit, after a very restful 11 hours of sleep. I really think that sometimes God works it out so we get rest at an unexpected time.. like hibernation at the point when we need it most, you know?

Also, it's thunderstorming outside our open windows, which is maybe my favorite thing in the whole world. I can already tell this is going to be an unproductive day, but I'm ok with that.

This past week has been full of projects and papers, "perfecting" the resume and cover letter(s), and e-mailing job leads. Spring Break is in less than 2 weeks, which is incredibly exciting and so needed, but I know I need to apply to a bajillion jobs before I take off, because when I get back, it will be almost April... which is kind of scary.

Oh, life.

Update on my Dad: he's coming up on his 3rd chemo treatment on March 12. His bloodwork this past week was "perfect!" according to his doctor, which is such a praise. He also hasn't had any sideaffects (besides his hair) from the chemo. Thank you so much for your prayers... please keep praying.

Words I stumbled upon... and love.

"Like a snow globe, we are most beautiful when we are shaken."
