...a mental health day...

After a long D-Now weekend I needed a break. It was a fabulous weekend, had its highlights and its downpoints, but overall it was great. I'm so glad I was able to be a leader. But it wore me out. And on top of not getting to my apartment till almost 3:00 yesterday afternoon, I had to be back at the church for a meeting at 4:30. Therefore I was only able to have a 45 min nap. Somewhere along the way I decided that there was no way I could get up at 6:15 this morning and endure a long day of class. Oh, and did I mention that I have a meeting at the church tonight. I knew I didn't have it in me to go to class all day and then a meeting tonight, so I declared today a mental health day. I slept late, watched GG, and now I'm trying to make it a productive day. Maybe some reading, cleaning, laundry, etc. Really, that's it. Hope things are going well for you!

Super Duper: Its a beautiful day!!
Super Pooper: My dearest friend, Liesal, hasn't posted in quite some time!!

...a new post...

I feel as though I should post. I haven't posted in a few days, and I won't be able to post any again at least til Sunday, if not later. So I thought I would post something so as not to go over a week without posting. Because if I did go over a week without posting I'm sure I would hear from many of you about it. So this post is basically just to keep you all off of my back.

Really, I don't have much to say.

Doing a D-Now this weekend.

Presently pretty girls annoy me.

Things have been busy lately.

I heart the Olympics.

Yeah, that's about it. More later.

Super Duper: your mom
Super Pooper: your face

...sooooooooooooo sad...

It's that time of year again. You know what I'm talking about. That's right. SING. If I'm being honest, this is one of the hardest parts of not being at Baylor anymore. It's such a unique experience. Spending 5-6 nights a week rehearsing for weeks on end makes building relationships inevitable. It was stressful, exciting, frustrating, super fun and always memorable. To look at other people's pictures makes me miss it sooooo much. And now tonight is Club Night. Always my favorite. So fun to get to see all the costumes and other acts. Yeah, I'm super sad. Its super hard to not be in the midst of it. The saddest part is this year I don't even get to go see all the acts.

One would think that it would get easier the longer I'm out of college. And maybe it will. But so far it's still hard. This weekend and next will be super hard as I think about my friends performing and me not even getting to watch and cheer them on. I'm not ashamed to admit it, I miss it and wish I were not only getting to see the acts, but that I was in one. So ladies, if anyone who is still in SING reads this, cherish it, enjoy it while it lasts, don't wish it away because of the stress.

Here are a few pics from SING when I was in it...

Okay, I'm gonna stop talking about this, because this is making me sad.

Super Duper: Tomorrow's Friday!

Super Pooper: Haven't done any reading for my classes!!!

...boys, who needs 'em?...

that's right, i said it! who needs boys? I will have you know that I had a perfectly nive Valentine's Day, and that was no thanks to any boys! I got a card from my parents, with $20 to starbucks, fun little cards and candy, and lotion from friends at work. And then came home and had a fantabulous birthday celebration for a fantabulous friend of mine.

Now i'm not saying that I want to go a lifetime without a boy to share Valentine's Day with, but for now, I'm content, and very grateful for friends to share a day of love with.

So here's to my fantabulous friends (image: me raising my bottle of strawberry Crush), whom I love very much, all of you, you know who you are!

Super Duper: I love the Olympics.
Super Pooper: Life.

Saturday, February 11, 2006 alone...

Well, i've lived alone for over a year now. Many of you probably know that it was the #1 things I was dreading in my move to Houston and starting of my new life. But it turns out that I love it, it's one of my favorite parts of my life! So, I've decided to do a pro and con list of living alone.

Pro - I can be as messy as I want and not have it bother anyone else.
Con - Things get out of control messy, no motivation to clean!

Pro - No having to hear someone else's alarm go off an hour before I have to get up.
Con - Noone to make you get out of bed when you're already 30 mins late!

Pro - You can watch whatever you want (TV, DVD, etc)
Con - Nooone to watch TV with you.

Pro - Can cook whenever you want, whatever you want.
Con - Hard to cook for one, and not fun to eat alone.

Pro - Not having to work around anyone else's schedule. I can study when I want, sleep when I want, shop when I want, shower when I want, do laundry when I want, etc.
Con - Noone to study with me, shop with me, etc.

Pro - Get to have all my own stuff in all the rooms.
Con - Don't think there's a con to that.

Pro - Don't have to share a closet.
Con - again, no con

Pro - no pro
Con - I'm the only one to clean the bathroom.

That's all I got right now.

ps- all previous roommates please do not take this post personally. I loved every minute with each of you, but there are perks to living alone!

Super Duper: all day to myself
Super Pooper: apt still not clean

...parental discretion advised...

-That Really Chaps My Hide-

This story may shock some of you, and be too discript, but I felt it my duty to share. So read on at your own risk.

Today, I wore a skirt to work that I had just gotten back from the cleaners. I was very excited to be wearing it, I felt rather cute. Well, (this is where it gets graphic) I was wearing a thong, as I always do. And somehow the combination of a recently cleaned skirt, a thong, and a very dry day, my buns were chapped.

That's right, my buns were chapped. And it was very uncomfortable, all day, well moreso later in the day, as it got worse. So, what's a girl to do but come home and lather her buns in aloe. So, I now lay here hopping that this remedies my problem.

My mom says that the solution is to wear full panties, but I'm true to my thongs. Hopefully this won't happen again.

I shared this story to try and warn the rest of you ladies out there. Be ware of chapping, and know what to do to remedy the problem, yes, aloe helps.

Sorry for the random, possibly too personal story, but I thought ya'll might get a kick out of it! I'm all about giving my friends a good laugh, especially at my expense.

Super Duper: unfortunately, nothing coming to mind, I guess just making it through today!
Super Pooper: haven't worked out this week

Monday, February 06, 2006 type...

So, I've been thinking about this lately. Do I have a type? You know, a certain type of guy that I'm more inclined to be attracted to? I think so. Let's unpack this a little, shall we (who am I kidding, you have no say in this...)?

Must Haves:
  • not only a Christian, but a godly man, a spiritual leader
  • either in ministry himself or extremely supportive of mine
  • loves kids
  • sense of humor
  • motivated, have a direction, be passionate
  • want 3-4 children
  • thinks I'm the most beautiful girl in the world (this may sound egocentric, but think about it, you want it too!)
  • knows how to have fun!!! laughs a lot (and can tolerate my laugh)!!!
  • would fit in with my family, and can handle the chaos that comes along with it
  • makes me a priority

Preferred Characteristics:

  • Tall
  • Plays an instrument (particularly the guitar or piano)
  • Athletic
  • Usually I'm drawn to guys with brown hair, but I could be convinced otherwise
  • intends to live in Texas (unless the Lord leads otherwise)
  • can have a serious conversation
  • drives a truck (again, this is negotiable, but a truck is preferable)
  • is tidy, not crazy clean, just not a slob

That's all I can come up with for now. I'm sure I missed something. Feel free to add your 2 cents (especially you married ladies who have more experience). Oh, and yes, I realize this list is a dream, there's noway there's someone out there that fills ALL of these criteria, but hey, a girl can dream!

Super Duper: going to see "End of the Spear" tomorrow

Super Pooper: overall chaos right now, life is crazy

...what a night...

Since I'm sure you were all dying to know what I ended up doing last night, allow me to enlighten you with as best a play by play I can come up with.

6:42 - Rebecca met me at my apt and we headed to the housewarming party at Heather Bell's.

7:13 - We arrive, fashionably late, of course. Saw some people we don't see very often. Took a tour of the precious lil house. Met some new people.

8:21 - Left the housewarming and headed to the church for Single Adult game night.

8:44 - Got to the church. There was a game of "Imaginiff" and "Mexican Train(Dominos)" already in mid game.

8:53 - Rebecca and I played ping pong.

9:17 - The other games finished up, everyone headed to the gym and played some intense "Knock Out (yes, remember that game? I don't think I've played that game in at least 6 years!!!)

9:41 - We decided to play "Knock Out" from almost half court, and I made my first shot from at least 6 ft behind the 3 point line...hahaha, I had to stop while I was ahead!!! Everyone was cheering!

10:10 - We all moved out to the game area and watched some people play ping pong.

10:32 - We decided to all play some multi player ping pong games called "Scramble" and "Round Robin". In all the running around I had taken off my sparkley shoes and was running around bare foot. The floor was very slippery and in a mad dash to try and hit the ball my feet slipped out from under me and I was flat on my rear in 2 seconds flat! CRACKING UP ALL THE WHILE!! Everyone was worried that I was hurt, but only because I was laughing so hard they couldn't hear me, you know, the silent laugh, like that of a baby that takes 5-6 seconds to emerge into a high pitched cackle!! Oh, it was hilarious. My dignity left the room at that moment. At least we all had a good laugh.

11:00 - Decided to call it a night and all head our separate ways. Rebecca and I headed to my apartment for her to get her car.

11:08 - Heard, but didn't see, a wreck happen right in front of us. Decided to stop since no cops were there. Turned out there was a little boy in the car, which Rebecca entertained all night. Then there was a witness with a 9 month old baby asleep in her car, which I watched while the witness gave her account to the police, and helped with the injured people.

11:52 - After the police arrived and assessed the situation, we watched them interrogate one of the drivers and made her follow a pin with her eyes, then walk a line, etc. Quite an ordeal, not something you see everyday.

12:32 - Things finally calmed down, wreckers took the cars away, and the police finally handcuffed the drunk driver (a lady in her 50s with white hair, not what you usually envision to be a "drunk driver". We finally headed to my apartment and Rebecca went home after that.

Quite a night, not at all what I had expected!

Super Duper: Got some reading done today!!
Super Pooper: Still more reading to do by Monday!!

Thursday, February 02, 2006 dilemma...

Well, it's not often that I find myself in this situation, but tomorrow night I have 3 options of things to do.

Option 1 - A housewarming party for a friend. It starts at 7, I'll only know a handful of people there, and don't really feel like small talking my night away. Of course, I could always meet a guy...

Option 2 - Single Adult game night at the church. Starts at 7:30. You know me, always up for a game, I'm a gamer, but again, there's no telling who will be there. I always love an opportunity to play volleyball and good ole board games, but it's hit or miss as to how large of a crowd will be there.

The other problem is that several of the people who would normally be at game night might opt for the housewarming party in stead. Such a struggle. But the other factor is that I'm friends with the Single Adult Minister and will feel bad for him if noone shows up.

Option 3 - Ditch both options (which I've known about for some time) and go see "End of the Spear" with some other friends who aren't going to do either of the first 2 options.

Here's the truth. I'm planning to make an appearance at Option 1, then head to option 2 late, but what I want to do is go see the movie. Ugh. Such a dilemma. If you have any advise for me, feel free to enlighten me, I could use some advise on the topic.

Super Duper: Got my paper turned in on Wednesday.
Super Pooper: Have another (not so intense) paper due a week from Monday. ugh!!
