new spring look!

spring is in the air, and i needed a change. most of the situations in my life right now cannot be changed.

i cannot stop going to school,

i cannot stop going to work,

i cannot create more hours in the day.

so for now, while my life is crazy, my blog has changed. i wanted new colors, and i think they work well for spring time. so enjoy the colors outside, and on my blog!

have a great day!

once again

once again i am posting instead of homework
once again i am waiting till the last minute
once again i have played five games of freecell and written two test questions
once again i am staring out the window at the rain
once again i hope you can read this post while you are also procrastinating

on a different note, please pray for pete to have safety while he travels to, in, and from california this week. pray also for my friend who is grieving for a teenager in her neighborhood who died yesterday. pray for school (weber) to finish soon and that i can accomplish all i am supposed to. pray for everyone in their ministry, God has set us in our places/jobs/circumstances for a reason, pray that we can glorify Him through that.

thanks for reading and praying!

hard day

today was a hard day.
it started out fine, i woke up a little late, but made it to school on time.
my professor was on one today so we got a lecture about how teachers don't have their students write in class enough, and how it's not solely up to the english teachers anymore. all of that. overall, it was a good class.
i then proceeded to go to school, school (job) and finish preparing my lesson for 3rd period. i gave them a group project/ teach the class assignment and all they can do is complain. it was not that bad until three or four of them were disrespectful to me right to my face right at the end of class. so i lectured them about how we should respect our authority and all of that. i was not happy, which made it worse for the next class, five minutes later!

needless to say, i have not done a good job of being Jesus to the students today. it is days like these that make you want spring break to come even faster.

spring, it is great

okay, here's the story.... i was blogging about spring, and how i enjoy it. when all of a sudden, my browser decided to close! i know i was as surprised as you are. anyway, i opened up blogger, and low and behold, there it was! just kidding! it was gone, no backup save, no nothing. so i must write it again. if it is not as good as the first one, you will never know because you did not read the first one, but it was good!....

as i was saying, today is march 10th, not yet spring. but nevertheless i have declared it fit to wear flip-flops from this day forth. i have worn the chacos on numerous occasions, but flip-flops hold a special place in my heart, so go ahead, wear those flip-flops proudly!

i love spring, know why? i love it because the air is still crisp and fresh smelling. it can clear out your sinuses, but not freeze your insides. also, the mountains still have snow, but the leaves are coming back. i think fall and spring are my favorite seasons, that is when the change happens. i think i like living in utah because you never get too much or too little of anyone season (well, winter overstays its welcome periodically) but other than that it is so enjoyable for the most part. spring is the time when you can be outside forever and not be forced inside by the 100 degree heat or freezing wet temps.

i do enjoy spring, but today i am cooped up inside doing homework. that will end come may, at which time i will be making a trip to antelope island as i have arranged to do so with a friend. to those who hate antelope island, boo on you! i will be going, and anyone who wants to come my join us, just let me know, and i'll let you know! i am looking forward to all but the bugs; but i can deal with that for a few hours. think of those who live in syracuse and have to deal with it all spring, summer, and fall! i pity your children.

anyway, that is my attempt to post. i hope you enjoyed it, have a great spring (almost) day!

to everyone who's hurting

to those who've had enough

to all the undeserving

that should cover all of us

please do not let go

i promise you there's hope

hold fast, help is on the way

hold fast, He's come to save the day

what i've learned in my life

one thing greater than my strife

is His grasp, so hold fast.
