Sweet Home Alabama pt. 2 August 21, 2007

Filed under: Life in general — jennifersworld @ 3:04 pm

I know I havent’ updated since I was on my way to Alabama, I apologize. So here’s my update, I live in Alabama now. Auburn Alabama to be exact. It’s a lot different from KC. But it’s growing on me.
So, I moved to Alabama August 1. I got my apartment setteled and then got to fly out to Anaheim to see my family and celebrate my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. They renewed their vows, which was beautiful and such a joy to be a part of, and had a big party. (Sidenote, the food at said party was AMAZING!!! I have never tasted food so delicious, nor have I seen food so delicious to the eyes, it was frickin’ rad!) I flew back from LA on Sunday and bright and early Monday morning showed up at Auburn for orientation.
We were properly oriented and sent off to Tallassee Alabama (yep, I spelled it right, I promise!) to get crisis management training (read: how to properly restrain students so they will not hurt you, themselves or other class members) I got to practice restraining my class members which was delightful to say the least. Imagine having someone you met two days ago lying ontop of you while you lay on a mat, can you say AWKWARD! But my class is much closer after having experienced this together!
Classes started Thursday. It’s been awhile since I’ve done the whole school thing, but it all comes rushing back when you sit in your first class. (which I was late for incidentally, stupid traffic)
This week we have classes and are learning how to teach a parenting class for the Alabama Department of Human Resources. I can now prove the many parenting errors my parents made with my brother and me, but perhaps I won’t tell them that!!! We start practicum next week…
I think that’s all. More later! Homework beckons!

I write to you from a hotel room in Columbia Missouri (and seriously, it’s killing me, I can’t take the closeness to Mizzou…) on my way to a new town… Life as I know it is going to change. I don’t think I’m ready for this.

I was watching the movie “Sweet Home Alabama” on tv last night, and they played the song (of course!) I have to say, I got a little chill up and down my spine as I listened to it. The excitement of moving is building. Part of me can’t wait, part of me wants to throw up…

I feel as though I should update, but I have nothing to tell…. yet, but I’m working on something, and it’ll be good, theoretically… Seen any good movies lately?


Weekend Update January 22, 2007

Filed under: Life in general — jennifersworld @ 2:35 pm

All of my life, I’ve been in hiding, wishing there was someone just like You. Now that You’re here, now that I’ve found You, I know that You’re the one to pull me through (“Deliver Me” David Crowder Band)
What a weekend… If you want details, you’d better take me out for coffee… it’s definitely not a blog conversation!


GRE-at job! January 7, 2007

THANK YOU for all your prayers. I could definitely feel them. The test was amazing. I was able to completely concentrate. I did really well. The perk of a computerized test is that you get your scores that day. I have to wait for my essays to be graded, but I’m not worried about that. Again, thank you so much for all your support… Anyone want to edit my application essay?


GRE-at…. big test that is January 5, 2007

I have decided to apply to Graduate school again, and this time, I have to take the GRE (graduate record exam… think SATs, only this time they assume you’re smarter because you’ve graduated college…) So tomorrow at 12:30PM I will be venturing to KU to take the big scary test… I tell you this because I’d like to ask for your prayers. I’m not nervous (at least not now) but when I do get nervous, I tend to go fast and not pay attention to the questions like they demand. So, if you would, please pray that I am able to concentrate fully and slow down and focus…. Thanks so much, I’ll let you know how it goes!
