My Apologies

Not writing for about 10 days is just part of the Blogging world. I apologize. So I'm really excited about getting to see everyone back home. Good times. But, I do love it in Austin, so I was glad to be back in the ATX.
I must confess, this blog won't be much to write home about. I'm just writing to make sure I keep up with this thing. I ended up making a 77 on my Biology test which, I must add, was one point above average! And, as you all know, that is passing!! Yay!! (This isn't a grade I would usually be proud of, but I really thought I bombed it..some of you know that)
I just took a journalism test. I was really worried about this one too, but thankfully, it was actually easy! *knock on wood* It was really long. 72 multiple choice/true or false and an essay with 7 different points to mention. In just over an hour. College.
Anyhow, I was pretty confident.
Now it's naptime!

I know the people that read this, and I was a little hesitant to post this blog, but I decided I might as well be honest (urgh..don't be mad!).
Yesterday was Sunday...the 4th Sunday I've been in Austin. Well, I finally went to church. It's not like I hadn't wanted to be going, I just didn't know where, or with who.
I finally did it though, and am SO glad I did. It was awesome. God is awesome. My friend, Kim, and I both went. Turns out she'd been wanting to go too, but didn't know who to ask. We went to 'Sunday school,' which we didn't like so much. It was too big (next week we're going to try the smaller group sessions). Then was 'big' church. People back home know what I mean by that. Anyhow, this church was massive! There were so many people, and the choir was huge. The number of the people isn't what made it so great though. You could FEEL everyone's love and their excitement to be there praising The Lord and learning more about Him. Wow.
I need to go to class, but maybe I'll write more about it later on today.

Some Pictures from the TCU game!

Simple Update

Well, my mom complained that I didn't write enough, so I thought I'd give a simple update. I'm actually in the library right now, finally about to go back to the dorm. I've been here for several hours, and can't say that I accomplished too terribly much.
Don't get me wrong, I did some reading, but nothing extravagant.
For those who didn't know, I'm trying out for crew, which is rowing. Yes me, Meredith Armstrong, is trying out for an NCAA sport that she has never even attempted before. I had orientation a few days ago. I went in jeans, a cute tank top, and flip-flops. I hadn't had a chance to change out of those clothes. Well, little to my knowledge, orientation was a mini-workout. So, there I was working out in those clothes. It was a sight to see.
Yesterday was the first official day, and I couldn't even go. I had a class during the workout times, so the coach emailed me an alternate workout. Funnnnn! Not!
So today was MY first official day of tryouts. I showed up, appropriately clothed this time, scared as can be. I was so worried about my physical condition that I felt sick to my stomach. I won't go into the details, but it wasn't too bad (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are the main conditioning is Thursday). I'm sure that tomorrow will be a little more difficult, but I'm actually ready for the challenge.
Pretty excited. I think this will get me into the habbit of working out on a regular basis whether I make the team or not.

OK, well, it's getting late, and I still haven't even showered. Gross, I know.
I'm heading back to the dorm now!

UT vs. TCU

So this week went well. It was perfectly ended with an AWESOME game against TCU. Down 10-0 (I think) at the half, we came back and won 34-13..maybe? Ok, so doesn't sound like I was as into it as I truly was. Anyhow, it was amazing. We were stuffed into the So much school spirit!
So I was going to post a picture I took on my phone, but it wasn't clear at all! I may try to get one from my roommate later on. So what was this picture of you may wonder.
Well, guess who I saw at this game..Matthew Mcconaughey and Lance Armstrong were sitting up in the box watching the game. I was so close!! Wow. So exciting.
Ok, I'm thinking about doing some reading now.
But yay for cute actors and many athletes!

Rocks my socks! We beat Arkansas State 21-13..wasn't the greatest played game of all time, by far, but it was my first Texas game. AMAZING. I was lovin' it! Can't wait until this saturday when we beat up on TCU! woot!
Alright well just so nobody thinks I don't even do work here, I do. I read 76 pages today, two different articles on the internet and watched a 20 minute clip Friday. See, I do homework. Well..hope you like the pictures!
