Paradox

Another week done got away from me!  Yaaaay weekend!  Fridays are again my favorite day!  It’s pretty much the awesomest thing to know I get to live here for like four years.  I think about it all the time, hanging out in the coffee shop, working in the engineering lab, running into friends all over campus…  I realized my dorm isn’t home per se–I don’t actually do much more than sleep there–but the whole campus is my home.  So awesome. 🙂

Quick story:  Someone (art major probably) made two sculptures shaped like rubber ducks and put them by a fountain on campus.  We were walking by and just so happened to be talking about something G.K. Chesterton would call “Truth standing on her head.”  Of course we call it a “pair-o’-ducks!”  Say it fast enough, look up the GKC quote, you’ll figure it out, haha.

Yuuuuup.  Bonus points today.

My brain’s finally clicking and whirring and turning over and running properly!  Getting into gear–there’s another analogy for ya.  The trick is finding that balance between “SOMUCHSTUFFI’MGONNADIIIIIIIIEEEE!” and “RAWR a Challenge!”  I forgot how much fun it is to thrive under pressure.

Remember.

10 years ago today.  It rained just now, and out my kitchen window I could see a rainbow for a few minutes.  But take heart, for I have overcome the world.   John 16:33

 

If you’re reading this, standfast. Hold on.  Wait just a little longer.

Awesome Sauce

Awesome things from this weekend:

  • Watching The Bourne Identity and jumping 4 inches when the bad guy crashes through the window… Thaaanks Stephen.
  • Starting a chairstanding trend in the Honors community… we call it “Lofty Dialogue” and it’s all my fault.
  • Long walks in the dark.
  • Listening to random music in the echo-y hallway of the SUB.
  • Watching a horror movie with a running commentary in the background by two guys from Paducah… I’m making puppets!!!
  • Stealing Michael’s “items” multiple times.
  • Pretending to play the mandolin, ha ha ha.
  • Sleep.  Sleep.  Sleeeeeep.  Yes.
  • Fake cockroach planted on roommate’s pillow… I was not in on this scheme, and I do not want in on any retaliations!  I prefer to remain Switzerland in the Civil War of Polaroid 068, thanks VERY much.
  • It’s fall here.  Literally, overnight, BAM, fall.
  • “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”  You betcha.
  • This list.  Just kidding, ha ha.
Not so awesome things from this weekend:
  • A dead campus as everyone goes home.
