You don't understand why I think and act the way I do?

That's fine.

Because I don't understand why you think and act the way you do either.

Ups and downs, highs and lows...never getting to bed before midnight, heart-to-heart talks with friends, frustrations and thick tension, friends who step in to take care of said frustrations, tons of homework, avoidance of said homework, eventual plowing through said homework, a messy room that reflect that I'm hardly ever there, and if I am I'm probably sleeping, laughing with friends, crying with friends, dancing, counseling (career counseling, no I have not yet gone insane), re-evaluating the states of some friendships, realizing that some of your evaluations are wrong, realizing that a couple girls you never expected to be close to are becoming your closest confidants, learning to tolerate caffeine to make it through the day, realizing that it's not going to get any easier before finals, realizing that he never lied to you, feeling terrible for assuming he lied, and he still accepts you even after he finds out that you questioned his integrity.

Is life crazy? Yes. But the bottom line is that life is good.

What I've Been Learning

Things I've been learning about myself:

*Even if it's obvious that it just won't work out the way I want it to, I have a really difficult time letting go of friendships.
*I can put up with a lot...but the one thing I can't stand is being lied to.

But onto happier things!!!

I had my third and last career counseling appointment today. I don't know what my major will be (beyond business), but at least I have an idea of who I am and where I'm going. I have a year to decide my specific major, but for now I know I'm going somewhere in business, have made the official change of major, and have been advised for next semester's classes. It's good to know your path. :D

I dropped anatomy today. I thought that doing so would relieve some of the frustration I've been having with Baylor lately. It didn't. It only fueled it.

Spring break is almost here...

Too. Many. Options.

This afternoon I've been doing some career research online as part of my career counseling...I am definitely more confused and overwhelmed now than I was before. There are way too many options, and the more I try to sort and categorize the options the more overwhelming the choices become.

Some nice Christian guy should just ask me to marry him. A rich nice Christian guy, preferably. That would make things so much easier...
