Hotty Toddy

Monday September 6, 2010

My first week at Ole Miss quickly came and passed and I am about to begin week 3! Unbelievable! Where does the time go? My first week I ate ice cream in the grove with my buddy Emily Irvin, met a couple of cool cats in my classes, and went to a few campus ministries to figure out which one I liked best.

I found my first week to be a little overwhelming, each time I felt discouraged I would say a little prayer and then everything would be okay. I kept reminding myself it is only the first week! Surely things will get better. Life is what you make it. I have heard that life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react or respond to it. This is so true!

My room here in Oxford is so cute! The Littlejohn's have helped me to feel so at home here in Oxford. I have also enjoyed meeting some cool people at the BSU. My first Friday night in Oxford I went to Graceland too with some really fun people. I rode with Jordan, Emily, and David BECKham! They enjoyed singing "gLee". I fell in love with a woman named Liz Thurmond this week she is absolutely hip and she loves God so much. She pours her heart in to serving others and her singleness is displayed as such a beautiful thing. She brings such glory to God and it is an inspiration to me!

Cameron came to visit yesterday. I love that kid, as crazy as he is. He has a way of making people feel comfortable. I didn't really get to talk to him much because he is such a celebrity it Tupelo. We did get to eat at our favorite place in Tupelo, Danver's. yummmm yumm! Probably the cheapest place to eat and get free ice cream =)
However, it was time to part (again). And my car was filled with saddness on the ride home. I couldn't bear listening to any of my great mixed CD's in my car so I rode in silence.. arriving home I had to soak off my saddness with some warm relaxing suds. ahhh a warm bath is a sanctuary. Then I realized that he stole my book! That thug!

This was the perfect labor day weekend, even though I was "laboring" at the Little's Jewelers. The weather was phenomenal and I got to see my "mall" boyfrand, Benny Booooo! All the Ballard girls were home for the weekend. It was good seeing Joannah and Sarah Kathryn. This morning Brucey made us some good ol' breakfast!

Ahh what a week.. I'm just now posting because I saved this post as a draft.
Hmmmm. eventfulness? yes.
I'm taking applications for friendship. I went to Phi Lamb rush Wednesday and Thursday night. I brought some of my friends from Northeast Amanda Spencer, Joannah Derrick, and Kelly Osterhouse. It really gives off a summer camp vibe being there but I love how all individual all the girls are and the soul binder of them is the one true God. love it!

Tuesday night Layken and I venture off to Florence, Alabama to see Fairwell Flight. love those guys! It turned out to be a flop but I feel like God brought us there for a reason and I'm not quite sure what that is yet. We filled the car up with conversations of greatness. We talked about 90's movies and serendipity.

I have come to realize that everything is going to be okay.

that is a good note to end on.

Summa time ramblings

Sarah Kathryn is downstairs playing piano and the whole house is filled with the sounds of a young Mozart in training. As I hurried up the stairs I felt like I was running late for a dance recital.. It is Seemingly something how classical music and ballet fall hand in hand. I believe it is because they are so complementary to one another. Lots of things in life are complementary. The love of beauty is complementary to my heart.. I do believe. I just keep daydreaming about my time to come at Ole Miss and what it will be like. I can not wait to be in the grove where there are enough trees for anyone who cares to sit and delight in it's shade. To me that is the core of beauty. Enjoying simplicity in a hectic world filled with jam-packed schedules, hurrys and worries.

This afternoon I had the honor of partaking in an afternoon tea party with some captivating young ladies. I can not remember all of their names but I am sure I will never forget them. We played games and conversated on handshakes and the neccessities of a firm, but non-agressive shake. It felt as if we were reading from the script of Gilmore Girls.

I spent the night with Emilee and Layken Friday night only to wake up with the chickens and go from yard to yard rummaging for tresures with Sarah Burpo. We pulled Emilee's bed into the living room so that we could watch TV.. but we found ourselves chatting by the glow of the television about how "good" movies just aren't made these days. We miss movies like Stepmom and You've Got Mail.. where are those directors that we loved in the 90'S and can they please make us some movies where the settings are beautiful and the characters are ones we fall in love with by their enchanting personalities and charm. Meg Ryan?! Where are you?! Please get back on the big screen!!!

Tomorrow is the first day of my last week as a community college student. Northeast has been great and I am thankful for all that it had to offer me.

That's all for tonight.

I'm really excited about starting Ole Miss next month.. I just know God has a lot in store for me! I can't wait to be in the grove. Soaking up the sun with a good book and some good music. See ya at Bottletree, Square books, Southside, and Yaya's. =)
