Random Thoughts

~ It is fall! The leaves are falling, the weather is chilly, and scarves and coats are everywhere. This is the weather for hot chocolate and pumpkin spice lattes.

~ One more week till Thanksgiving break!! :)

~ Today was my fourth Spanish exam! I am loving LU and my Spanish class! I love my professor and have loved getting to know people in the my class and the class after mine.

~ Went to see Straight No Chaser at the Ryman with some dear friends last night! It was fabulous! They are such a fun group! Check out their "12 Days of Christmas" video below!

~ This picture made me laugh:


~ Quote:
"When I look at culture, I see we have so many gifts given to us that allow us to be lazy. I’ve heard it said that any culture that makes ease its goal has already begun its demise—I can’t think of any nation where this would be more relevant than my own. The United States has become the culture of comfort—growth, strength and beauty are not things that come from comfort. They are refined qualities that are brought to the surface often by pain or trial. … All of us, myself included, have a tendency to be caught up in hype. But the Gospel is about being humble to the point where you’re willing to pick up your cross and daily pursue a communion with this gracious God who loves the world."
— Switchfoot’s frontman Jon Foreman 

~ Tonight is the Academy's swing dance... I am excited!

~ I love Whitver. It is the best.

~ This video is so cute:

 ~ We had a swim meet last Thursday- the Irish Relays! The Irish Relays meet is SO FUN. Everything is a relay! There's no pressure to make cuts and it's everyone's first meet. The Makos won :) Probably the most exciting races: the TSHIRT RELAYS!!! I helped with the transitions! We had a team in the first heat and a team in the last heat- and we got 1st and 2nd overall!! It was amazing!! Whoo hoo Go Makos!

~We had another swim meet on Monday- we lost by four points :( It was a super close and fun meet! It was fun to see our Wildwood/BHS friends :) I missed my breaststroke regional cut by .01. :p I went a 1:30:00 and the cut is 1:29:99. SO SAD! But I will hopefully make it next time :)


~Today I am thankful for all of the men and women who have sacrificed for our country!!
