Life continues on

It has been a very busy week. Last weekend was busy. We had two large Thanksgiving dinners, as well as a birthday dinner. That's a lot of food. :S The pie was great though! I love pumpkin pie. I also made a new friend. His name is Larry (thanks Courtney.) Here's a picture of us, and my pie.

I brought Larry to school with me. Aside from being kidnapped one night, he seems to really be enjoying himself. I'll have to have a chat with Courtney and tell him that Larry doesn't like being kidnapped, or beheaded for that matter. I think it must hurt him to regrow his head.

I've been enjoying second year so far, though as hard as I tried at the beginning of the year, I've managed to slack again. Of course that would happen. I'm getting frustrated with myself. This weekend will be dedicated to homework. I have a lot of things due this week, so if I end up slacking more, then it's going to ruin me for then next few weeks.
My favourite course is still Major Prophets. I really enjoy how Dan teaches. I'm hoping he'll give in and teach us a class next semester. I've been learning a lot from that class, and from IIBS as well. IIBS has been so beneficial in many ways. It's been showing me a ton about Bible study and the steps to take for it. It can be very time consuming but it's definitely worth it.

My own personal devos have not been happening much at all lately. That's probably part of the reason I've been getting so frustrated with myself. There seems to always be something to do instead. I try and get as much sleep as I can in the mornings, and then the day just gets so busy I don't do them. I need to get on top of that. As difficult as I know it's going to be.

I really like the group here at KLBC this year. We've all been having a lot of fun together [probably too much fun and not enough work :)]. We now officially have two couples together. David and Angel started dating a couple of weeks into school and now Trevor and Sarah are dating. :) I'm quite happy for them. Sarah is hopefully moving into res. within the next few weeks. That will be a lot of fun. I like her, and it will be great having her around.

My parents 22nd anniversary is tomorrow! So happy anniversary you two. :) I hope you have a great day.

It is now time to do some homework. I hope everyone is doing well. If you ever have any prayer requests just let me know. :) I love you all very much!! God bless.

"O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive, it is in dying that we are born to eternal life." - St. Francis of Assisi
(Thanks for that, Colin)

Driving Test

Oh...I forgot to mention that I did my G driving test yesterday and I passed! It's good to have it over with. :) No more driving tests until I'm 80 or something.

Camping, Thanksgiving, Birthdays...

I got to see Crystal Rudy this past weekend! I was so excited! She came up on Saturday morning with her nice Oldsmobile Alero packed full of food and camping gear and we went on a small road trip to find a place to go camping. We looked on the map and saw a place called Petroglyph's Provincial Park so we decided to go that direction. We made it without getting lost, but because they're a provincial park they don't have camping there. So we went in and talked to the guy at the gate. He directed us to a campground across the road, and very kindly explained to us what a petroglyph was, because we had no idea. Basically it's a carving in stone, done by the Aboriginals and the different pictures mean different things. We ended up going to look at them and they are kinda cool. Apparently it's still a spiritual site for them.
So, back to our camping trip. We chose our site, and after a great lunch we set everything up. Our camping trip mostly consisted of cooking food over the fire, and then eating. It was great! Though by the time we left, we were sooo full. She brought sooo much stuff to eat. All of our meals turned out amazingly well! They look good, eh? :D

This is our first supper...

Our eggs for breaky...

More breaky...

Crystal eating breaky...

Lunch... (mmm...bacon!)

And us "sleeping".

Hope you enjoy those...they're just a little random, but fun! (like really...who takes pics of food?)

This weekend is Thanksgiving! Yay! I get to go home for a few days. Sarah and her parents are coming through Ptbo. and are bringing me back with them. I get to show her the book that Lucas and I made...hehehe it's pretty exciting. It took me forever to put it together, but she gets to be the first of the comic group to see it. My birthday is on Sunday and I'll be 21. Yay! I'm excited about that. My parents got me a membership to the Wellness Center here in Ptbo. I just went for my orientation today, so tomorrow will be my first real day there. I'm going to do the Hip Hop class. That should be quite enjoyable. On Friday my family is having my birthday party, and then we have two Thanksgiving dinners later on that weekend. It's going to be busy! My sister's birthday is today. She's 16, and Rachel L's is on Thursday, so happy birthday to the both of you!
We've been doing Intramurals on Tuesday nights and it's been fun so far. We're playing hockey for a few weeks and for some reason I've been in net. lol It's a sight to see! I feel bad about letting so many in, but practice will hopefully improve my skill. It's good to be able to get the exercise and to hang out with everyone.
Ok...I think that's all I need to say for now. I hope you all are doing well. I miss everyone from last year. We should have a KLBC reunion sometime! :) God bless dear friends!

Just as I am, though tossed about,
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings within, and foes without,
O Lamb of God, I come!
