My life has been nuts recently. This week (and a few days after the break) I'll have two tests, one being a Civ test, a Civ research paper, a philosophy paper, a lesson for my Foundations class, working nine hours a week on top of other normal home work. Craziness. Because of said craziness I decided to delete my facebook. In all honesty, it was a really rough decision, especially since my best friend uses that to talk to me sometimes. But in all honesty, we don't talk that often. And I don't really talk to anyone else on there and somehow it takes up a huge chunk of my time. I just didn't need it. Instead of homework I did facebook, instead of a quiet time I did facebook, it just isn't good. I've felt pretty good since not having it, despite some grief from a few people.

So...lately I've felt kind of tired of OBU. I don't feel like I have that many friends here anymore, I pretty much only see Ben, John and Katey on a regular basis. It's sad that nobody really hangs out anymore since everyone got apartments. We only get together every once in awhile for birthdays and a few family dinners. And Shawnee, I am not a fan. There seems like there is nothing to do (not that I'd have time). And it's not like Borger, which is small, but I know all the neat things to do there and places to go because I've lived there my whole life. And it's not a new place anymore, there is nothing cool to do in Shawnee, Oklahoma. I'm ready for another point in my life (like Oregon) but more than that, I'm just ready for a break. After the craziness that is this week, it'll be great to go home, see some familiar faces and just be home, away from Oklahoma.

Anyways, for craziness and melt downs, this week has been good. I lost my I.D and have NO money until tomorrow so I've been eating lunch and dinner with John which has been fun, nice to spend some time together even though we're insanely busy. I am also really enjoying my job, I get paid to color and watch Disney movies for three hours. It's pretty tiring, but I like it. As the week goes on, I get more and more checked off of my to-do list. I taught my lesson today, tomorrow is my Civ test (which I am uncharacteristically not worried about) and I already have four pages done on my seven-ten page research paper done. Life isn't too bad, even when it's terrible. Because my God is wonderful
