So this week is kinda crazy, multiple papers, multiple tests, and just not enough time.  Also, I’m a bit sick, so I’m just trying to get through it all!  But life is so good.  And you know what?  Everything is going well so far, my friends are as amazing as ever, and it’s just going to be alright.

Easter was fantastic.  I was excited to spend it out in Oregon, and man I wasn’t disappointed.  I went to a Good Friday service at River West Church and greeted people at the door beforehand with other people in the Church’s college age group, The Hub.  That was a fun experience because I feel like I am recognizing more faces and I got to see a few people from Young Life there.  I went back to River West for Church on Sunday, but before that we had an Agape brunch!  A few days before Easter, Carolyn and I decided we wanted to have brunch with as many people that could come, so we sent out an email in hopes that people would show up with food.  We didn’t have a “you bring this, I’ll bring this” kind of list, so we didn’t know what to expect.  Thankfully, we had the perfect array of food!  I made a tater-tot/egg/cheese hot dish, Carolyn made pumpkin pancakes, Branden made muffins, Emily made a lemon-tart (with raspberries and strawberries!!), and I know I’m forgetting things, but it was so good to have brunch with friends.  After that we all split off to go to our respective Churches.  The crew at River West

This week, like I mentioned, has been pretty good.  There are so many things happening around campus and I have had to miss them due to my large homework amount.  For example, the International Affairs Symposium about The Global (Dis)Order happened and I missed out.  While International Affairs will not be my major, the idea of thinking globally has a lot to do with why I chose Lewis & Clark.  I love being surrounded by so much information all the time.  One thing that I am going to do tomorrow is visit the Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art beneath Watzek Library and check out the Senior Art Exhibition!!  so excited, I get to pass out programs!19 graduating art majors have their work there for all to see.  Check out this website and the video!  I did go to our Lu’au which was more than incredible!  My camera did not find its way there, so I do not have any photos of my own.  But I will ask my friends if I can borrow some of theirs, not to worry!

While I need to go do homework, I have to tell you about two things I am doing!  Carolyn has a musical theatre concert this FRIDAY!!  And Kelsey has a dance team performance (with guest appearance by Momo & The Coop!) on SATURDAY!!  It’s going to be a good weekend!D

I’m enjoying the sounds of rain, and I hope you are too!  Questions? Comments? Concerns?

Best of luck with college decisions!
