So I am slightly stressed about the upcoming week. I have two finals on Tuesday and I am nowhere near prepared. I leave for Australia on Friday, and an unfortunate turn of events as left me going alone. That makes me nervous. But I mean hey, if I can go to New Zealand alone for 4 1/2 months, I can go to Austrlia for 6 days right? Right? It still makes me nervous.

Wow, just 3 more weeks until i come home. Time has flown by. Well, sort of. I do feel like I've grown up a lot in the last 4 months though. Not sure how i feel about that. My mom called me an adult the other day. The crazy part is I almost feel like one. I'll be 21 in a month. I guess after that I will really have to come to terms with the fact that I am an adult. I asked my mom if she was gonna take me out drinking. She said she would throw me a tea party. Oh mom.


an interesting thought...

So I was in my Perception Psych class a few weeks ago and we were learning about color perception. You know how the human eye can only detect color within a certain range of frequencies? I forget the exact numbers, but we can really only percieve a small fraction of the whole range of vision. It made me think....what happens when we are no longer bound by the limits of these human eyes? (yes I'm talking about when we die) Will we be able to see in a way we never fathomed? I think so. I think what makes heaven beyond our imagination is simply the fact that we only know a small range of the possible, we only know what we are capable of knowing, what we are capable of seeing - that is, what our bodies allow - but when we get to heaven, we will be able to see for the very first time. And not only that, we will be able to hear and touch and smell things we never could before because our bodies were incapable.

How do ya like them apples?

No more classes!!!!

Sung in a cha cha-like melody:

I am done with lecTURES, I am done with lecTURES, I am done with lecTURES!!!!!!!

Ok, had to get that out of my system. So as you may or may not have guessed, I am done with lectures. (or I guess finished with lectures would be a more grammatically accurate way of putting it) Anyway, all I have left as far as school goes are the three terrible finals, two coming up in about a week and a half and then the last one a couple of weeks after the first two. Guess where I'm going during one of those weeks between my finals....Australia!! Whoo hoo!! I'll be going to Surfer's Paradise on the Gold Coast just south of Brisbane where I will be staying at a hostel ON THE BEACH! yay! Then after that I'll take my last final, pack up my stuff and fly home!

I've been here for over three months now. I wonder how much has changed since I've been gone? How many new people won't even know who I am when I show up again at Chi Alpha next sesmester? I can just picture someone coming up to me with a visitor's card and asking me if its my first time at The Front Door. *sigh*
