Not my scene...

As hard as it is to remember, I am actually at Auburn University for an education. Today's lesson: Band Parties.

If I was interested in alcohol, maybe this first band party experience would have been fun-- but I'm not, and it wasn't. We (my roommate and I) left, and we may or may not ever go back to another one.

Conclusion of today's lesson: Band parties just aren't my scene... or our scene for that matter. Which is one of many reasons why I love my precious Leigh Ann.

So, anyone stalking this blog (so basically, I'm talking to no one right now), hook me up with the underground tunnel system in Auburn for the next time there is a band party.

Tonight is my first night back in the ham. It's only been a week. I feel super lame for coming home, but just to clear the air: I have a doctor's appt. here tomorrow. Sittiing in my room makes me miss Auburn. I feel so inbetween and confused about where home is. Auburn ALMOST is, but not quite, but Birmingham just isn't the same after only a week away. It's like I'm homeless.

That's why I'm loving some of this:
"So let the most high God be like a home to you."
Psalm 91:9... nothing like the comfort of home in my Redeemer. :)

P.S. Day #2 of the squirrel life was even better than Day #1. God knows me SO STINKIN' WELL. Everything about Auburn tells me so.
It blows my mind.

Rejoicing in the Lord is easy today!!!
God made me to be a squirrel.

This is a lovely picture that my roommate (and fellow baby squirrel) took of me after i accepted my bid.

one more day

All to Jesus I surrender;

All to Him I freely give;

I will ever love and trust Him,

In His presence daily live.


I surrender all,

I surrender all;

All to Thee, my blessed Savior,

I surrender all.

All to Jesus I surrender;

Humbly at His feet I bow,

Worldly pleasures all forsaken;

Take me, Jesus, take me now.

All to Jesus I surrender;

Make me, Savior, wholly Thine;

Let me feel the Holy Spirit,

Truly know that Thou art mine.

All to Jesus I surrender;

Lord, I give myself to Thee;

Fill me with Thy love and power;

Let Thy blessing fall on me.

All to Jesus I surrender;

Now I feel the sacred flame.

Oh, the joy of full salvation!

Glory, glory, to His Name!

God is so real. I love Him and all the work He is doing in me through the recruitment process.
What a blessing.
Who would've thought I could grow so much and be this encouraged by so many Christian girls in only 3 days? Not me.
So glad I was wrong-- and that I am alot of the times-- and that God NEVER is.
Thanks to anyone rushing me who is stalking my facebook who ended up stalking my blog for contributing so much to my growth in the Lord.
Can't wait to see what He does Saturday.

Keep prayin for me-- it works!

Thanks for the prayers. Keep em comin.

"The lot is cast into the lap, but it's every decision is from the Lord."
Proverbs 16:33... Can't wait to see where the lot lands in God's hands!

Austin, a Dee{/a}r

Precious Austin wrote me this poem:

Oh Rose, Sweet Rose
Why must you leave my side
My hearts been ripped
My face been drenched
With all the tears I've cried

But Rose, loving Rose
Great things must come to end
A true companion you are to me
A truly loving friend

So Rose, Dear Rose
I plead on last act of love
Before you float to the Plains
I request a GIANT HUGE MASSIVE Goodbye BEAR hug

It came complete with a paper airplane to throw at the wall whenever I'm mad in my dorm.
... I'm gonna miss that kid.

And as if that wasn't funny enough, I just registered for a JOGGING class. HA HA.
I'm going to die, but hopefully, this will avoid any hint of the freshman fifteen!!

15 hours until I leave for Aubs... super mixed emotions. Current emotion: happy.
and I want to stay that way for as long as possible.

War Eagle.

rewind back to the time i didn't know how to post videos

I THINK I've got it figured out now...

Everything I know about college I learned from Troy Bolton.

too soon

I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through.

In that small cafe;
The park across the way;
The children's carousel;
The chestnut trees;
The wishin' well.

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.

I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.

I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.
Billie Holiday, "I'll Be Seeing You"
(*Disclaimer: I liked this song before I saw The Notebook.)

I figured it out:
I'm so glad that college is coming, I just feel like it's coming a bit too soon.
I took this in Homewood while enjoying my last Saturday night in Birmingham.
