Hello Again! It’s been a while since I’ve written a 7QT. Time to get back on the bandwagon! Life has been busy lately with warmer weather (bring on the sunshine!) and classes (that are going much better than last semester). It’s hard to believe I’m about a month away from being half way done with college.
Lest you think it’s always a walk in the park – this morning (Thursday) I woke up at 8:05. And I have a class at 8 (that I really shouldn’t skip). That was a first! I had woken up early when my roommate was getting ready, but then I didn’t get up yet because I didn’t have to yet. Right. I moved very fast, stuffed my things in my backpack, and so commenced the walk of shame to class. I am never, ever letting that happen again.
This semester has been hard, but it feels like I’ve come so far this year. I’ve learned so much about myself through challenging classes, working with Ravens Respect Life, and generally learning how to deal with people. And that is meant in the nicest way possible. It’s been a pleasure getting to know some awesome people. And others? It’s pushed me to put others before myself and see the good in people even when that’s hard to do. It’s taught me how to handle conflict better too, and how to be a more gracious choleric person. It’s all been an awesome opportunity in learning to assume the best of other people.
Link love – what I’ve been reading/doing lately:
Scientific 7 minute work-out timer (super cool!) – let the sweating begin!
What is “cool”? by Kate Bryan
Student’s April Fools prank on professor (with a sort of pro-life twist)
Natural Beauty vs. The Media by my fellow Raven Joslyn
Be Born in Me – latest song on repeat prompted by the recent feast of the Annunciation
And of course a Catholic meme to finish it off:
Guess what? We just had elections for RRL, and I’ve been elected as President again. There are many things I plan on doing differently personally, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to serve in BC’s pro-life ministry with a great team. It’s so neat to see God putting together amazing opportunities!
Speaking of opportunities, there are 3 weeks left in my fundraising campaign! Would you consider supporting me and spreading the word? Just click on the picture to the left to view it. Thank you!
Cute video 🙂
On the menu:
Recently I made something resembling these. And by resembling I mean: the ingredients are roughly the same but I didn’t really measure so it turned out weird. I ran out of peanut butter so it wasn’t wet enough so it’s more like coated granola. But hey. It works well in yogurt. Another plus? It used some of my leftover milled flax from my hippie fail! Flax definitely reminds me of of the taste of walnuts. It’s getting closer to the end of the year so we’re getting creative with using things like a giant container of Walmart oatmeal up 🙂
Also to be eaten: Amish friendship bread! Without realizing it I started it 10 days before Palm Sunday so we’ll enjoy it then. It’s the first time I’ve ever tried it by making my own starter, so we’ll see how that goes.
And to finish off these quick takes, here is the video that was going around as an April Fools Day joke titled something like “The Reason Behind Pope Benedict’s Resignation”
Of course it has nothing to do with Pope Benedict (hence being passed around on April 1st). And I have to admit something along those lines has definitely happened in my suite on multiple occasions. It’s getting closer to summer and we’re getting excited!
Have a lovely weekend! For more Quick Takes, visit Conversion Diary!
