CONGRATULATIONS to my Em, who just passed the bar exam! I'm so proud! :D *cue SNL skit music* She used to be a student...now she's a lawyer...Unfrozen Non-Student Lawyer!

I've realized something really obvious. Have you ever noticed that almost every famous person or group pushing people (especially young people) to vote is liberal? When was the last time you saw a Republican MTV Rock the Vote rally? I thought that was weird until Evan pointed out that it's in liberals' best interest to promote youth voting, because most young people will vote Democrat. Figures. Did anyone see the Daily Show on Wednesday night? One of their "reporters" went to the last debate and kept going back and forth between the camps in the press room, asking each for the truth about who won the debate. When they each assured him that their side had won, he "began to suspect that they might have their own agenda." The segment ended with him standing in the middle of the room screaming, "This is all a lie and a sham!" and collapsing. It was hilarious - and I can kind of relate. It'll be a relief when the election is over.

Bible study was wonderful last night. The topic was hope, one of my favorite spiritual subjects. :) He talked about how everyone needs hope - something to look forward to. Without hope, we'll die. Maybe not physically, but spiritually. To most people, hope is related to uncertainty (like, "I hope I did well on that test"), but as Christians, our hope is certain (Hebrews 11:1). He went on to say that when Jesus went to the cross, we - the Church - were His hope. It was just amazing. I did a search, and it's surprising how much the New Testament has to say about hope. I feel inspired.

Has anyone heard about this? Wow! I can't wait for the new U2 CD. They're incredible.

I'm excited about this weekend. We're getting the apartment in order, like I mentioned, and Saturday night is my lingerie shower that Myla is throwing. It'll just be a few of us since I didn't want everyone I know there...for obvious reasons. :) Myla definitely knows how to throw a party, though, so it's going to be a lot of fun. Yay!

I can't ever remember feeling as happy as I have these past six months or so. You could say I'm just excited about the wedding, but I like to think that getting married is bringing about a change in me that makes me a more optimistic person. That's what true love is supposed to do, right? God gave us marriage to make us holy. And happy.

Time for a Diet Vanilla Coke!

Here are some of my pictures from Emily's wedding! Evan took most of the ceremony ones, so send any compliments or complaints his way. :)

Last night Evan and I hung out with Casey and had a great time. As it sinks in more and more that we're really getting married, I worry more and more about finances. As usual, Casey had wise words to say on that topic. She reminded me that we'll be taking vows for richer or poorer, and that's a sign that money will always be an issue. If we had a lot of money, we'd still be struggling about how to spend it wisely. What's important is the marriage. I really needed to hear that. Also, after talking with her, we decided to scale down our honeymoon. We've really wanted to go to Hawaii, but with the rates I'm looking at, it would cost me half my savings. So we're reorganizing our priorities in order to afford more important things (more on that tomorrow!) and will probably just drive down to the Gulf Coast or something. I feel relieved now that we've made that decision.

Today I'm leaving work early and we're going with my parents to check out a nearby country club. My dad has heard nothing but good things about it. If all goes well, we'll go ahead and book it for the reception. We don't have time for hall-shopping or lists of pros and cons. :P I'm so thankful for my parents; they're being very generous. I am also thankful to the authors of Bridal Bargains, from whom I have already learned a lot.

I am still completely undecided on bridesmaid colors and flowers.

I finally got this best friend generator to work! )

Oh, and happy birthday Jeremy! :D And happy fiscal new year to everyone else. Especially the accountants.

There has been an abundance of food at my office this week. The architects in my department had a vendor come today to give a presentation, and he brought a huge Italian lunch. The guys are all still talking about it. It reminded me of this...

Phoebe: There's a whole table of mini-muffin baskets. Which one did you send?
Ross: The small one.
Rachel: What? You actually thought that basket was gonna get you the apartment?
Ross: Well, yeah! Someone sent us a basket at work once, and people went crazy over those little muffins. It was the best day!
Chandler: Your work makes me sad.

Today is my Friday since I'm taking off tomorrow for the wedding festivities. Tonight we're taking Emily to Tunica for her bachelorette party. We're meeting up with some other people there...it should be interesting. I'm not a fan of gambling, so my slots limit is one dollar. :P Tomorrow is the bridesmaid luncheon, and then the rehearsal dinner (to which Evan is invited, yay!). Then Saturday is the wedding- it's going to be great. I'm excited! The only sad part about it all is that when it's over, Em will be moving to Washington DC, even further away from us. :( But we'll get to visit her and Daniel, I hope.

I need to delete my whole LJ bio and just write, "Weddings. Friends. Books. Fashion. Evan." That's all I talk about here. Well, I should stop apologizing for it. This is me. I might as well accept my fluffiness. :P :)

Happy Birthday to aardwolfLawson and apestaartjeSarah! Also Jamie and my boss, neither of whom read this journal. Still, that's a lot of birthdays for one day.

Em and Daniel are here! Kathy and her Daniel and I had a fun lunch with them a little while ago. Tonight I have band practice, and then I'm coming home and getting into bed, since I still feel sinusey. It's partly this office that makes me feel sick- it's freezing and I feel chilled in a feverish sort of way. But I was fine at lunch. I need a little space heater like some of my co-workers have.

What is your perfect temperature? Mine is 72 degrees (Fahrenheit).

The entertainment center is finished and it looks great! Everything fits in it with plenty of room to spare. I'll take pictures of the apartment when the moving is done and you'll all see how different it looks. I feel like I'm getting a new home without having to move. :) The cat also enjoys all the rearranging- plenty of new spaces for him to explore. He keeps climbing up next to the TV, like the view is better from up there.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas!

Mine was okay. It wasn't the best Christmas ever because of some family altercations, but overall it was good. On Christmas Eve I went to service at my family's church. In the midst of the hymns, as I was meditating on Christmas Evey things, my sister (who sees everyone in terms of animals) leaned over and whispered that the music minister looked like a dinosaur. He did. That was the end of my solemnity. :) Then we went home and my mom and I played some carols together. On Christmas morning I got a lot of nice things from my wish list, notably Friends Season 5, a hair straightener, and Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird. My mom was really clever and hid a Michaels gift card in an Altoids box. I unwrapped it and was like, "Um, Altoids. Thanks, Mums." She told me to open it, and I did and was happy. I'm going to buy my long-awaited paper cutter, and then I will be set on scrapbook items for a long time. Kathy's parents graciously gave me a clothes box full of stickers and papers, and her sister Jamie got me a Xyron sticker machine! I was so surprised!

We went to the movies and saw Mona Lisa Smile, which was good and thought-provoking. After the movie we had Christmas lunch/dinner, watched some Friends, and went to my parents' friends' house for dessert. Then I went home to a very excited cat, who had been left alone since the previous afternoon. He was happy to see me. Evan called, too, and we had a nice conversation. I love talking to him. Only three more days. I guess the time has gone pretty fast, but at the same time it feels like forever since I've seen him. He got a big gift certificate to Structure, and I have some Petite Sophisticate and Old Navy ones, so we're going to go clothes shopping together and be all cheesy. I can't wait. :D

Em is coming back sometime today, and tonight we're going to do something or other. Yay for totally nonspecific plans.

Silent day. There are three of us in my building today. Well, five, counting Helen and Nicholas, but they're downstairs. Why are we here, again?

It's weird how the sun is usually out in spring and summer, but in fall and winter most days are overcast and dark. No rain, no snow. Just clouds and darkness. Can you tell it's Monday? :P

My weekend was nice. Friday night Evan and I went to Lawson's housewarming party. It was fun. I'll have pictures tomorrow. Robin and Helen were there (but not at the same time). I was happy to see them. Some of us played Trivial Pursuit. Jeremy and Teresa were kicking all of our butts, but then Lawson, Lance, and another guy I had just met swept in and took the game. It was my personal worst game ever, but there were still fun moments. Lawson's house is very nice. Evan commented to me later that it would be cool if it had a creek behind it, so we could call it Lawson's Creek. :D

On Saturday my mom had a massive photo-printing project for me. She took me to lunch at McAlister's and then to check out the sales at Michaels, and then we came to the apartment and I printed her pictures. After all that, I went to Evan's. He had been moving all day. Em and her Daniel were in town and we were going to meet up with them, but Evan was exhausted and I was pretty fried myself. Plus, I could tell it wouldn't be quality time- there were going to be a lot of other people there. So instead he took me to Garibaldi's for a quiet dinner, and then we rented Fight Club (first in a series of Movies We Have Always Meant to See). It was very interesting. I don't think I'd recommend it to everyone because of violence and some raunchiness, but that aside, I enjoyed it.

Yesterday Evan and I got to ride to church together for the first time. It was nice going to lunch and stuff in the same car. :) We went to my parents', where I scrapbooked with my mom while we all watched the poor Dolphins get slaughtered. (It was a bad, bad week for Miami football.) :( In the evening I was supposed to go to my 40 Days of Purpose study, but I skipped it. I've realized that once again, my whole life is being planned for me. I have obligations almost every night. When I'm home, I'm cleaning or exercising. I have zero time to read, work on my scrapbooks, or even take a nap when I feel like it. I have no room for spontaneity. I'm not in school or anything, so there's no excuse for this. Whenever I get to this point, I try to rearrange my priorities. Unfortunately, they keep un-arranging themselves. As one of my co-workers told me today, "I need to quit work. It's interfering with my life."

Ryan's roommate, Ashley (a guy), has moved his wedding up from June 26 (Em's wedding day) to March 20, so now I can go to it. I like his fiancee, Katherine, a lot, so I'm excited. Just thought I'd share. Ryan is probably going to move in with Royce, which is also fun. God works things out.

According to that thing going around, I write at a 6th grade level. Isn't that just based on syllables? Should I start using words like fangoriously, extrapolation, and administratively?

I can't wait for Return of the King. I need to start re-reading, in preparation, but I'm still bogged down by Robert Jordan's Lord of Chaos. Incidentally, I think that's one of the coolest book titles ever. It lets everyone know that you're not a sissy. "What are you reading?" "Lord of Chaos." "Awesome." :)

Some bad news: Evan got in a wreck last night en route to my apartment. He was trying to cross Poplar from a side street with tall bushes- it's a major blind spot and I've always found it nerve-wracking- and pulled out too far and got hit by an oncoming Suburban. I'm so glad he wasn't hurt. There are a million ways it could have been so much worse, so I'm trying to look on the bright side. Amazingly the car is still driveable, but maybe not for long. If any of you hear of another $500 car for sale, please let me know.

Fridays are good.

I have two huge announcements.

1. My other best friend, Emily, finally got engaged to her Daniel last night. They're getting married next summer...earlier than Kathy and Daniel.

2. Also as of last night: After three years of being Just Friends, Evan and I are dating.

:D :D :D

My life has changed completely in the course of two days, and I'm still trying to process it all. God's timing is unbelievably amazing. Something's in the air, guys. Get it while it's hot. :) I heard this line on a movie commercial: "Good things can happen. It's such a surprise." I think that sums up everything that I'm feeling today. God truly does give good gifts to His children. I am amazed at His faithfulness.

:D :D :D

Nobody likes you when you're twenty-three and you still act like you're in freshman year...
- Blink-182, What's My Age Again?

I'm twenty-three now, but will I live to see twenty-four?
- Coolio, Gangsta's Paradise


I'm assuming so. :) Anyway, I wanted to make one more post before tomorrow. My friend Casey told me that twenty-four was her best year. Maybe it will be for me, too. I find that the intensity of my life has increased with my age. Do you know what I mean? My highs are higher and my lows are lower. Big things, like marriages and births and deaths, happen more and more often. I guess this is part of adulthood. It's something I hadn't really thought about until recently.

I bought two pairs of shoes on my lunch break. But they were on sale! One is a pair of one-strap brown heels. I've been wanting some more "dainty" shoes for a while, and they were ridiculously cheap. I think I should just have my checks deposited at Target to save time.

Emily's birthday is tomorrow. We were born eight hours apart. She's a faithful reader of my journal, so I have something for her. :) Yay )

I forgot to mention what a nice time I had with Em last weekend. So Em, I had a nice time. :) It was good because it was the first time in forever that we could just be together, instead of planning/attending some huge event. And, since Lili seems to be barreling straight for Louisiana, we may have another such time sooner than we expected. :)

I'm starting to prepare for the arrival of the cat. We are going to go to my boss's house after work tomorrow to meet the kittens and decide which one we want. They have to be weaned first, though, so it will still be a couple of weeks before the cat can come home. Linda let me know that the kittens are gray, and they're all boys. When Kathy told one of her friends about this, he suggested we name the cat Gandalf! I am really excited about this. I feel like such a cool person for having a cat named Gandalf, which is pretty sad. :) Anyway, I have started reading You and Your Cat, and am making an effort to be more friendly with the neighborhood cats, so I can get used to feline interaction. :)

Today I am wearing a new cardigan, which is always a nice feeling. Even though it is in the high 80s outside. In October. Sigh.
