Dear Needtobreathe,

Keep your eyes open for these girls because we are coming to see you again this weekend. That's right, drummer Joe. I know you really wanted us to come to the Nashville show. Please sing "Over Now."

Dear Brooke,
This is how it will be in our hearts.

Dear Emily,
Have you decided yet whether or not you are coming? You should. Remember how much fun we had last time we spent the weekend at Western? I believe it looked a little something like this.
Seriously, though, what's a girls' night without the opportunity to dress up in cheetah print, use book lights for microphones, and dance around a dorm room while lip-synching to The Backstreet Boys?

Dear Express,
I haven't stopped thinking about this dress of yours that I saw on Saturday. You should take a hint from Fossil and The Gap and put it on super clearance. I would buy it.

Dear legs,
Do you really want to play this game with me, right now? I'm getting kind of incredibly tired of it. I know it rained all last week, but that is really no excuse for your behavior.

I am SO excited for your wedding!

Dear Asbury,
I love you. Everybody will want to attend you for college once they see this awesome pic from our impromptu photo shoot on the cover of the new admissions booklets!

I'm gonna be this girl.

The one with a BILLION bridesmaids.
I've read that 8 is maxxx before gets tacky, so what's a girl to do?

Is it weird how often I talk about what I'm gonna do at my wedding?
Yes?
Well, so be it. I love weddings.

All I want to do is blog*

It's true. Blog and read blogs and bookmark blogs. Seriously, this is an addictive hobby.

I should have posted this a long time ago and can't remember why I didn't.
It reminds me of The Office in wonderful ways.


Confession: Sometimes I consult her.

*and run.

Come, ye weary, heavy-laden, lost and ruined by the fall,

First test of the semester--of the year--tomorrow.

I studied A LOT for it, but, as always, I feel like it wasn't enough.

But I'm shooing from my mind the false guilt that says I didn't work hard enough.
And I'm reminding myself and reminding myself and reminding myself that even if I see this on my test when I get it back,

life is not a stock market,
my own personal value cannot go up and down,
and I am outrageously loved.



Press play.

You know what feels surprisingly good?

Balancing your checkbook and having everything line up perfectly!
Getting it done in between classes so it doesn't eat up your evening!
Checking it off your to-do list!

In other news, I found out last night that the Germ-X antibacterial hand sanitizer I've been frantically applying every time I touch anything will not, in fact, protect me from the swine flu because the swine flu is, in fact, viral rather than bacterial. DANG IT.

At least it will protect me from colds, right? Which would make me more susceptible to the swine flu? So it might be helping some, right? RIGHT?

Something Beautiful

Finally blogging about the (magical) Needtobreathe concert!
I know; I know. I'm TOO studious. I seriously need to slack off and blog already!

Best friend Lindsay and I decided two weeks ago today to act like the college kids that we are and drive to Louisville the next day--on a school night, no less--to see one of our favorite bands, Needtobreathe!

Here we are inside the concert waiting for Needtobreathe to come out!

And let me just tell you. They were amazing. The venue was really small, so we got to be way up close. Close enough, in fact, to wonder whether or not that ring on the bassist Seth Bolt's finger was a wedding ring! (We still don't know.)

What we DO know is that he and all the other guys (!) were kind enough to talk to us after the show and even take pictures with us!

Well, hello, bassist!

He was so intense about everything. Check out his face in the vid at the end. I even took this picture of him talking to another fan.
I'm so creepy. But I needed to document how attentive he was to everyone!

Here's Linds with lead singer Bear! I really wanted to ask him about his inspiration for my favorite song of theirs, "Over Now," but I didn't! I think it's most definitely about my legs!

Here we are with the oh-so-cute Bo and two of Lindsay's friends from Eastern. They were so much fun!

All the girls with drummer Joe! He talked to us for a long time!

Here is my favorite song of the night (and my fave off their new CD), "Something Beautiful"! They turned off their mics and did it all acoustic! My camera wasn't even zoomed in; this is how close we were! Aaaah, so good!


I really really really (I know, articulate, right?) want to go see them in Nashville in early October with Lindsay and best friend Kristina, but I'm way too studious and may deem the trip a threat to my A in persuasion or my A in intercultural communications. We will see. I hope I slack off and decide to go!

Dear cafeteria decision-makers,


Pancakes and potato chips for lunch? Really?

I have SO MUCH to blog about. So much I want to catch up on.
Packing and heading back to school.
Not having the Internet for the last week. (Eeek!)
The Needtobreathe concert that I went to Monday with bff Lindsay!

But I have to leave in 22 minutes for a student govt. retreat.

So I'll say what I've been meaning to blog about for a long time:
A big BLOGGY thank you to Belen for sending me the Princess Diaries soundtrack and a Celine Dion CD as part of her crap-away giveaways!

Because Celine Dion and TPD fit right into the very large category of embarrassing things that I love.
Michael Moscovitz, anyone?

"Be merciful to me, Lord,


f
or I am faint;
Oh, Lord, heal me, for my bones are in agony.

My soul is in anguish.
How long, oh, Lord, how long?

Turn, oh, Lord, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love."
Psalm 6:2-4

I haven't had time to breathe lately, let alone blog.
But these days it smells like cross-country, and it's kind of making my heart hurt.
