Progress

my fox is back online. wooohoooo!!!! ok… getting my mme paper done tonight and then working on the redesign of this. yes… i know i still have my senior sem paper but i’ll lose my mind if i don’t do other things.

Finals are approaching!

i’m praying that the cd gets to jon tomorrow. i miss having my fox online.

ok… it’s major crunch week so i may not be putting too many entries up (or at least really detailed ones) until the 19th. i have my anthro final done and i’m attempting to get a few pages of my mme paper done tonight. after that, it’s all about my senior seminar paper. pray for me since i’m at the point of losing my mind. oh yes… this is what i learned from the children’s sermon at messiah today: safeway-brand tuxedos have more filling than oreos do.

Weekend Paper Plans

ok… hoping to get my anthro paper and my mme paper done this weekend. i think i will have to shrink the font on the anthro paper because it needs to be under 12 pages and i’m at 10 right now without discussing the eucharist.

Violence

can anyone tell me why we’ve had the following things happen in the last three days: -the shooting spree at santana high school -the shooting at a pennsylvania school this morning -the arrest of a student in washington for bringing a gun to school -the arrest of two teenagers in california for having a hit list and a rifle i just wish that my generation would abandon the violent trash that is the media and pop music industry and start working to make things better. sorry… blowing someone’s head off with a gun does not solve anything.

Stupid Cats

there was a cool storm this weekend. my mom’s cat decided to go outside… then come in… and then go outside about five times before she realized that she would get wet. bessie isn’t that bright occasionally. another storm is coming in. i love this kind of weather and am hoping that we get some *good* thunder and lightning.

JEN IS GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the ash wednesday service went really well. we had 150 people crammed into the tiny conference room that we used for the service. i was the gospel reader and my friends anne and fernando did the other readings. the number of people created a logistical nightmare so the campus ministers had to come out into the mass of people to do the ashes. while they imposed the ashes, we were singing a taizé piece (oh Lord, hear my prayer). it was nice to get newman and iv and the other groups together.

some pretty good news: I’VE BEEN ACCEPTED TO GRAD SCHOOL!!!!!!

Seattle Earthquake

is it bad that i have no idea what to give up for lent? especially since today *is* ash wednesday.

attn seattlites: are you guys ok? if you write and tell me your stories, i’ll post them on here. 🙂 (hint: let me know you are out there and reading my journal.)
