Wow, nothing too exciting today...  Had class this morning.  After I got up at 4:50 something to finish homework.  And I ate breakfast in the caf.  I've missed the caf over the summer!  Anyway, then I worked on homework and got some stuff accomplished in my room before heading over to Heldzingers' house around 2:30.  And then Lisamarie and I sat at the dining room table and did homework all afternoon.  Pretty epic. lol  Oh, we had lunch somewhere in there and a short swim in the pool as well.  Anyway, I think that's pretty much all the news I have.  I'm off to bed!  Oh, and below are the pictures I promised you all. :)

July 30

Today has been a really good day!  Well, started kind of not so good.  First day of Hebrew 3...  But it was really neat sitting in the old classroom again and seeing all my Hebrew buddies again. :)  But this class is seriously going to kill me...  It's midnight and I still haven't finished my homework that's due in the morning...  And I have a grammar quiz as well.  But I think I'm going to head to bed and get up early in the morning to finish the homework.

But I haven't told you the best part of the day!  So, Lisamarie and I had a Bible study this evening.  It went really well.  But on the way back, I asked her to be my girlfriend.  And she said yes!!!  I am super excited. :)  I had talked with her parents last night and they gave us their blessing and they are both very excited for us. :)  Anyway, I'll post pictures tomorrow hopefully.  We took some, but I left my camera in the car. =P  So anyway, have a great night!

Yep, today was Sunday.  Didn't get a whole lot accomplished.  Although I did get the cover for the DVD done!  But that was this evening.  This morning after worship and breakfast we all went and played tennis for an hour and a half or so.  Except for Stefan because his wrist is injured, so he ran.  And boy was it hot out there today...  So after we got back to the house, we all jumped into the pool for probably a couple of hours. lol  Yeah, my face is burnt... :/  Then I finished the DVD cover before coming over to Southern to help with the Freshman Welcome Party.  That was fun. :)  After that was over, I went back to Heldzingers' for worship.  And now I'm back in my room...  So goodnight all! :)

OK, so it's quite late (or early), but I'll at least fill you in on the highlights of my day.  This morning I sang "Four Days Late" for special music at Chatt. First.  Lisamarie and Stefan sang back-up and Mrs. Heldzinger played the piano.  I think it turned out alright...  They're already trying to get me scheduled to sing that song at East Ridge. =P  Anyway, the video is below.

Then I went over to Donesky's house for lunch and to celebrate Orville's 50th birthday.  He's pretty proud about that. lol  So that was fun.  And I met Heather's roommate here at Southern.  She seems super nice.

I left their house around 3:30 and headed 2 hours north to Heritage Academy because I got a message from Johannes Harnisch saying that he and his dad were there for some meetings this week and they are leaving early Sunday morning.  So I went up there and visited with them for a couple of hours.  It was so nice to see them again!

I got back home to Heldzingers' house around 10:15 this evening.  They had some friends over still, so I visited with them until they left, then we visited some and watched a couple of Christian comedian videos.  And now it's 12:30 and I need to get to sleep!  So goodnight! :)

Happy Sabbath!

So today has been pretty good!  I moved rooms yesterday to the room that I'll have this next winter.  It had been re-done, but there were still a couple of things that weren't finished.  So they replaced the bathroom and closet doors today.  They look a lot better. lol  But I spent most of the morning trying to bring sense to my chaotic room...  Sarah Doe was here for a day to say goodbye to everyone before she moves, so several of us went out to eat for lunch at a really neat vegan restaurant downtown.  It was really neat.  They even had board games there for people to play, so after we ate we played Apples to Apples for awhile.  Then I had a Bible study with Louise, which went pretty well.  Then I came over here to Heldzingers' house.  I checked out of the dorm again, so I'm here for the weekend. :)  Anyway, I need to get to sleep.  Tomorrow's a really big day!  But I'll tell you about it after it happens. lol  Goodnight!

Wow, I realize I haven't updated you all in a while!  But the last few days have been hectic.  Stefan was staying with me for a few nights, so that of course made things more hectic.  And then I was in limbo about my car.  I thought I may have to replace it, but I don't think I'm going to now.  I think it's the transmission that needs replaced now and a friend is able to replace it for a reasonable price.  So it looks like we won't be separated for a little while longer at least. :)

Other than that, I've been doing Bible studies, working on the DVD label and cover for the Christmas play, and other random stuff.  The one week Summer SALT is going this week, so Lisamarie and I led song service for the opening meeting of that on Sunday evening.  That was fun.  Yves Monnier was the speaker.  He talked about ten reasons to do evangelism.

Anyway, I need to get to sleep.  Another day tomorrow!

Friday night

Today was pretty good!  I spent the morning making a couple of changes on the play DVD, then Josh finished his demolition of me on Axis and Allies.  By the time that was done, it was time for lunch.  Then Lisamarie had to return some things to the mall, so she, Stefan, and I all went to the mall for awhile.  That was fun.  And then Josh played trumpet and I played trombone for awhile.  We both need to do that more often! lol  But it was really good to get the trombone out.  And then we played the Pilgrim's Progress game.  It's been ages since I've done that!  I've never met anyone else with the game, so I was surprised when Lisamarie pulled it out for us to play tonight. lol  And now I'm back in my room.  Stefan is spending the weekend in the dorm with me, so we're having fun. lol  Anyway, time for bed!  Have a wonderful Sabbath! :)

Thursday evening

So today has been sort of a different day.  I finished up the play DVD and got it burned.  But now the disc is saying it's damaged, so I need to figure that out...  But otherwise, that project is getting wrapped up! :)

Then Josh and I started playing a game that he has, Axis and Allies.  He just got a huge game board, so we were trying it out.  He wants to play it as a group Saturday night, but he wanted me to figure out how to play it first.  So we played that all afternoon.  And evening. lol  It's sort of like Risk, except a lot more realistic.  Anyway, my Bible study canceled, so I didn't have to do that, so we played.  I am all the Ally countries, and he is slaughtering me.  The game is nearly over, but we had to quit for the night. lol  To be continued on the morrow.

Anyway, I'm off to bed now.  Have a great night! :)

Today's been pretty good.  Did laundry this morning and stuff, then ate lunch with Heldzingers at a Chinese restaurant.  So that was fun. :)  Then I had prayer meeting and a Bibles study with Katie this evening.  Yeah, that's about it... lol  Anyway, I'm tired, so goodnight! :)

Tuesday night

Just a short note tonight.  It's late and I'm super tired.  This morning I started going through footage from Africa, which was exciting! :)  And then I finished up the last few things that needed changed in the play video and got the final one exported.  So the play is officially done!  As soon as I burn it... lol  Anyway, and then I had Staff Meeting at the church.  And a Bible study at UTC that Lisamarie and I did.  After we got back from that, we FaceTimed Seth for awhile, then I went over to the Fire Station and played soccer for awhile.  Yeah, I'm out of shape! lol  But it was a lot of fun!  And then we went over to get Frozen Yogurt, so I picked Stefan up for that.  Lisamarie has a test in the morning, so she had to stay home and study. :/  Anyway, now I'm off to bed!  So have a great night!

July 16

Hey Y'all!  I've had several people tell me that they really miss the daily emails every night, so I decided to give it another shot.  I won't promise I will post every night, but I'll post as often as possible. My computer got here today, so it makes it easier!!! :)  I am so super happy.  I had to wait around my room until 1:30 before the mail came.  It usually comes much earlier, but not today!  Oh well.  I took my car into the shop this morning and thankfully this mechanic gave me a much better price to fix the drive shaft on my car.  So that made me happy.

As soon as my computer got here, I walked over to Heldzinger's house for the afternoon.  Then Lisamarie and I did a Bible study in Chattanooga this evening.  It went pretty well...  After we got back home, we finished proofing the play video so I can get that burning tomorrow hopefully!  That would be super nice. :)  And now I'm off to bed.  So goodnight all!  Hope you're having an amazing summer!!!
