It was so wonderful to see my family; we had a fabulous, relaxed time. I was so happy. They took me places! In a car! Places like restaurants, stores, the Fairfield Inn...I got a new water bottle to replace my lost one and blue tights and other fun-ness. The concert on Saturday night was amazing--there are such talented people here. And my family really liked college meeting for worship, too.

On Friday night Becca stayed with us in the dorm. I wish I could have showed her a typical weekend night for me, but since so many people were with their families, we ended up walking to the coffeeshop at 11:30 that night, sharing a strawberry smoothie, and talking for an hour about stuff you can't think to say in letters or on the phone. We laughed so much. She's so awesome.

Now I am swamped with work, but it was worth it. I loved having visitors. Now I'm really excited about going home this Thursday for mid-semester break. Whoa, it's mid-semester already?

I'm a little glum now, but it doesn't feel like homesickness. I think all the stuff that's in the back of my mind can be really good but it can also be really worrisome, and being alone in a room just pushes it to the forefront. Oh well. Also, I had two separate incidents make me angry today (read: hurt my feelings, which for some reason I hate admitting) and I handled neither of them properly (read: assertively).

Soon I'm going to do a picture entry, because I finally got film back from the first six weeks of school.

i'm glad you had a good time seeing your family. :) i agree w/ you about being lonely and having certain thoughts dominate you. i get more sad when i'm alone because i don't have another person there to distract me.

Yeah...sometimes I love my alone time. And sometimes it is necessary to be alone (like now, when I'm in the midst of lots of homework and studying.) But it is a lot easier to slip into feeling bad when there's no one else around.

I definitely will. :) Is your cell number still the same? I'm so excited to see you! (& I want to meet your new friends, too.) What time would be best for me to call? I'll get there probably early Thurs. afternoon but I know you'll still be busy with homework and class...maybe Friday evening? Just let me know.

Let's see...Thursday nights are generally bad for me, but I will always have a bit of time for you! But if not on Thursday, then on Friday I have a 2 hr lunch break from 11:30-1:30ish, and I'm free after 2:30 (I had a class canceled for the first time!). Some of my friends will be going home, but either way, I'm sure I can round up a few of them. My cell number IS the same, but don't call me until 3:30 on Thursday, because I have an interview where my break would normally be. But I will definitely have time at some point this weekend- we'll talk soon and work it out :)

call me too =) my cell is 418-2993. i think you know the area code.

how long are you going to be in town?? thursday-sunday? i have to work (take pictures of the volleyball game) both friday and saturday nights, and since i know very little about volleyball, i have no idea how long the games will be. and sunday= zoo + howie day (hopefully) so my schedule kind of sucks for this weekend and i have no idea how yours is but i hope we can hang out sometime!

i have about a 5-hour break between classes on friday so if you want to get lunch or something, that would be cool. =) (i'm free from 8:20 AM to 1:20)

i'm sorry this note is so long! (but really i'm not) =) <3
