SNOW Snow snow! I love the snow! Ok, I do understand why people don't like the snow - it is not fun to drive in (unless of course you're a dare devil, which I am not), but once inside and cozy, or outside having snow fights and making a snow dalik, like my cousin did, it's pretty amazing stuff. Each snow flake is a beautiful crystal, and all together they cover the ground in a soft blanket. It's quite magical.
This past week, we had 18 inches of snow. I had no where to go while the snow fell, so it was amazing to watch. I have had two years of straight summer - the chill of the wind on my face, hot chocolate, and warm blankets all seem so nice. Yay.

I got it! I am now in my own apartment, in my room. I don't know if you can understand how amazing that is. I cannot remember the last time that I slept in a room where every iota of stuff was MINE! Imagine a person hugging a room - that's me.
Anyways, to further speak of the happenings of my slightly more doldrums life, I am now going to... class. Yes I am now officially a student at metro state college at the age of twenty-five, but I am only taking one class - Social Psychology. Its pretty interesting. Today we talked about how positive thinking affects how we act and think and live. Soemething that got my nogin going was this:
Barbara Fredrickson made a list of 10 forms of positivity:
The Fruit of the Spirit:
Do you see the correlation? They don't all match up but the point is - God's so cool that everything that has to do with God has a grounded human basis - Everything is spiritual :)
