I went on a balloon ride; I can see everything from up there.

The end of the year is crazy! At first as I was going over the things that I need to work on and complete within the last month, I was thinking that it didn't really seem too bad...but as the end of the year gets closer and closer, it feels like my to-do list keeps getting longer and longer! Sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming, but just knowing that a month from now I will be on summer vacation helps with the anxious feelings. It even kinda makes me sad because summer means that I won't see my friends from school nearly as much, in addition to the other people on campus who I don't really know but who I would like to know (ya know? ;)).

Anyways, the end is in sight - and I will be half-way done with college. But then there's grad school. Ha. ;) One step at a time...

Here are some pictures of my life lately...

Roomie Date @ The Art Institute Day back in February.
Apparently, "Jim" from The Office was there the same day as us! Haha.

Typical train ride back from Chicago.
(This is one of my roomies/bffs Emily.)

The choir girls seeing who's the palest/most pale (?).
Guess who won?

Faith, me, and Ashley being cool.


The ONU 5-k that Annie & Amy ran in! :)

Mom, Ashley, and I made these over Easter break. Aren't they cute? :)

This was Walk For Life for the local Pregnancy Resource Center, which helps out expecting moms. That day, they raised over $5,000, which will go to several different things for the moms & the center. Part of the money will go to buying ultrasound machines, which is so important because close to 98% of women who see a picture of their baby say no to abortion!
(Emily and I are in the white sweat-shirts.)

Anyways, that's about it. It's been almost 2 months since Sky's death. The family is doing all right. Easter was a little teary, but the Lord continues to provide us with strength and peace. I just pray that my entire family would come to know Him. Pray for us!
