Okay, so I'm a heart person, right? For the Myers-Briggs fans in the house, I'm INFP. 100% N, 100% F. Anyone who has known me more than 5 minutes knows that I am completely emotional. So one of the most stressful things in the world for me is when I feel like I can't act on my emotions. I hate trying to force myself to make decisions with my head, because I'm not used to it. I just want to give in sometimes and stop trying so hard. Wow, I feel like I shouldn't even write that. After all, perseverance builds character, and character leads to hope (Romans 5:3-4). Usually, my emotionalism is one of my favorite things about myself. Today I wish I were my sister, a.k.a. crazy-non-emotion-always-use-your-head-over-your-heart-and-I-just-went-to-a-Kanye-West-concert-in-England lady.

February 16, 2006.

Wow, so today was eventful.

First, Providence was having a blood drive for a lady in our church who is fighting cancer. I went to give blood, and found out that I couldn't because apparently the part of China that I visited last summer has malaria in epidemic proportions, so I can't give until I've been back in the country for at least a year. I hate not being able to help. It made me sad, but I was glad that I at least tried, even though donating blood makes me really sick.

Okay, the second thing that happened is really a lot more exciting. I had dinner with Jason and his family tonight! Yes, the very same Jason that so many of you have kept in your prayers as he has been going through the process of trying to get paroled. He was released today! It was a really neat experience to be a part of such a special night. I was so honored to be included. He has so much potential. I really hope and pray that he succeeds in becoming the man that I believe he can be. Those of you who are praying for him, please continue! :-)

Along those same lines, I haven't heard from Stacy since he has been out. Please pray for him and his wife, too.

Last but not least, shout out to Katie Randall who - as of next Friday - will be Dr. Katie Randall!!! Woo-hoo! I'm so proud of you chica. You kicked pharmacy school's butt. :-) I love you and miss you!

Valentine's Poll.

Okay, I'm bored and it's snowing and Valentine's Day is coming up soon, so I'm in this serene, romantic, cozy, contented sort of mood. So, I've resorted to redecorating my myspace and living vicariously through the romantic experiences of others. Therefore, I want to know everyone's plans for Valentine's Day! Come on, don't be shy. If you don't have plans for this one, tell me your best past Valentine's story.

By the way, for anyone who cares, I got a Valentine in the mail yesterday! Could be my first one ever from a boy... I can't remember ever getting any others. It made me smile. :-)

The world is a beautiful, wonderful place because I woke up this morning to see a blanket of pure, white, sparkling snow. Thanks to all of you people up North that used your powers of imagination to send it all the way down here, just for me! :-)
