I thought I would take some pictures of Garrett's and my apartment today and share them with you. When you think about us now (which is probably all the time, right?) you can imagine us in our apartment. :) I also am kind of proud of some of the decorating, so I wanted to share. :) So, here they are: The LIVING ROOM~
I have not been healthy lately. I think that it is finally taking a toll on my body. I have been eating a lot of fast food and haven't been working out at all since we moved to Portland. I think that me sinking into this kind of lifestyle is really weakening my body. My immune system is anything but strong right now. Every since school started I have basically been sick. I felt better for about a week or two and then this last weekend it struck again! I have missed school and work for 4 days now! It is really aweful. I will get up to walk into another room and my body just feels exhausted. I have been sleeping a lot too, which I know I really need. I had to go to 2 classes on Tuesday and 1 today to take tests. Other than that I have been home sleeping and hanging out. It is really hard for me to just stay at home and do basically nothing. I am the kind of person that needs to be doing something and if I haven't accomplished much in a day or done anything productive then I feel like I have wasted the whole day.
I just want to get better! I hate being sick and I can not miss anymore school and work! So, please pray for my health if you think about it. I would really appreciate the prayers. :)
School is in full swing now and, my oh my, do I have a lot of homework! Of course I expected to have homework, but definitely not this much reading! There is basically no chance that I am going to fit in reading a book for pleasure. I am taking 8 classes: Pentateuch, World Christianity, English, Math, Intro to Fine Arts, Spiritual Life, Student Ministry, and Intro to Church Ministry. That is a full plate if I do say so myself. But, don't get me wrong I am really enjoying college and am grateful that I have the opportunity to attend a Bible college and further my education.
It is so awesome that in most of my classes we either pray or sing worship songs before we start class. I have never expirienced this before in a class room setting, since I have gone to public school my entire life. It is really uplifiting when you hear your prof. pray for you before you take a quiz...
My favorite classes are Pentateuch (the study of the first 5 books of the Bible) and English. This is mainly due to the profs that teach those classes. They are really awesome. Dr. Gary Friesen teaches Pentateuch and has actually written the book:
. He is very smart and open to what students have to say. He always opens up time at the end of class for us to give our opinions and if we agree or disagree with him. My prof for English is Professor Schaak and he makes writing come alive. He is so good at taking a piece of writing and looking at all the different feelings and emotions that are behind it. He also always lets us have discussions and oppose his views. He says that Bible college students these days are too passive and sometimes he has started the semester by saying a straight out lie and none of his students ever challenge him. Once he told our class that we decided we were not going to be so passive and that makes for a really interesting class time.
Anyways, school is going great...I just have a lot of homework! :)
I used to have a blog called, A Woman's Heart, but deleted it months ago. Well, I am starting it back up again. A Woman's Heart will contain devotionals, stories about women and God, and things that are on my heart. My personal life blog will still be Everything Wonderful. I have a link to A Woman's Heart on the side bar, and I hope you will take a look! Thanks! Ang
