My Week in a Nutshell
a) the line behind me at the passport office, and b) Lisa and Margaret, my line buddies
Well, I'm seriously considering renaming this blog "The Sunday School Chronicles", because that seems to be my most common topic. This Sunday we made goop with the kids. I was a little concerned that they'd get it all over their clothes, but they were pretty good about it. I love the second graders!
Or perhaps the "School Schedule Chronicles". I managed to get my Philosophy and Astronomy essays done on time, and my English project is ready to be handed in, so now I've only got to worry about writing my Grammar essay before tomorrow. Last week started after a long weekend, then the class before Grammar was cancelled, so my pattern recognition and internal schedule were thrown off. Wouldn't you know that I just plumb forgot I had Grammar and didn't realize I had missed it until the next day, sitting in Philosophy class. AHHHH! So I emailed my prof, and she just laughed and said that the essay was due next week. Thank goodness I didn't miss anything uber important!
On Thursday I stood in line at the passport office for 2.5 hours, which, surprisingly, was actually quite fun. Upon arriving at the passport office, Cameron, a guy from church, drove by and spotted me, so he stopped to talk for a while. Once he left, Dad showed up to bring me my lunch. Once he left, the ladies in front of me in line and I hit it off and spent the rest of the time joking around and laughing. We didn't exchange names until we were actually inside the building, so they just called me "College Girl", which I felt was a rather prestigious position. I didn't get up the nerve to actually witness to them, but I did give them some tracts. I don't know exactly what they thought of them, but they didn't start spitting on me or anything, and were quite appreciative, especially for the tract with the one-liners. You can pray for them - Margaret and Lisa. I should be getting my passport back within about a month, so that's somewhat of a relief - for a while I thought my summer plans were completely shot. Now I just have to send in the VTI form and choose between Malawi and Peru for a missions trip.
Again, nothing very deep, because I don't have time at the moment, but I hope to get something of substance into this thing again, soon.
