"I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny, old attics; even if they dress in rags; even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young. They're still princesses. All of us. Didn't you father ever tell you that? Didn't he?"

Flat Tire

Today on my way to Marian I got my first flat tire. I was about halfway there and my car started shaking and making loud noises that were not normal. For those of you who know about my car, it already has some issues with the engine and it is relatively loud. By the time I pulled into Marian I was worried because I hoped driving with a flat tire wouldn't hurt my car. I called my Mom right before I went into class, asking if she could call my Dad and ask him to change it for me. Thankfully, when I came out of class, my Dad had put the spare on and left me a message saying that it was okay to drive it. I made it on time to my other class on the other side of campus and my ride home was uneventful. After I got home, my dad instructed me in how to change a tire so next time I can do it myself. ;-)

... among other things.

So, I'm really in need of an update. I'm also in need of a better dedication to blogger, something that I want, but I tend not to have because I don't think I have anything exciting enough to write about. But, my mom always says that I shouldn't post about how I have nothing to post about, that doesn't help anything.

A lot has happened since I posted last. It is now 2007, hopefully the best year of my life so far. I was able to attend the 2006 CYPU Winter Conference in Lafayette and I enjoyed it throughly, Rutledge Ethridge is an amazing speaker and what he said was challenging and applicable. World view started last Friday, Chemistry and Geometry started this past Monday and I started my first classes at Marian College today. Everything is going well so far.

I have a couple prayer requests before I end the post. First, that I wouldn't get too swamped this semester since most of my classes are relatively hard, that I would make swimming a higher priority instead of just going when I feel like it and that my focus would be on God throughout everything, that I would turn to him first for help instead of myself!
