New school, Crazies, and diet sprite

Those three words pretty much sum up the last week for me. I'll do this in list form, cause we all know how I love the lists.

1. New School- Ok, y'all. I love being back in school again. I love taking graduate level classes. I even love feeling like the smartest person in the 200 level class I have to take as a prerequisite. I love that its only 14 miles to campus, I love that the facilities are super nice, I love that I can use the gym, heck- even the Subway restaurant here is better than the one by my house. Call it a honeymoon period if you like- but it's lookin' like the real thing. L-O-V-E.

2. Crazies- I won't go into lots of detail but if you'd like to know the kind of crazies that are lurking blogger, please click (here). I will say that I had been to Beccah's blog many times, found it as a sidebar on another blog asking for prayer, but I never understood the need for her anonymity. When I saw that she had a P.O. Box listed for "cards and letters" (aka donations, please) and listed adverts on her site- it made me feel all green inside. I was fortunate enough to catch her last few posts before she disappeared (after a fake birth and trying to pass pics of a babydoll off as her newborn child) and buddy, the aftermath that followed has been like a real life, Nancy Grace phenomenon-- online. Thousands of people were duped by her, and some even sent money!! See (here), (here) and finally, my favorite response (here). I can't look away....who fakes a pregnancy under the guise of christendom and charity? Ugh.

3. Diet Sprite- is sold all over campus. Other than sonic, I usually have a hard time finding it. I am thankful, readers. Very thankful.

Speaking of class, I have one momentarily, so I bid you farewell. Headed to the parent's with the boy this weekend!!!

Good luck with you and your new boyfriend, AKA your new school. You know how I feel about the crazies. And I share your passion for Sonic Diet Sprite. I think that I'm the Texas Natalie and you're the Alabama Megan.

Anonymous said... YOU! Can't wait to see you both. : )
