This weekend was a good one... On Friday I had lunch with a girl who just moved here to be the middle school and girls minister for a student ministry in the area. She's a couple years older than me, but not many, and is like me, in that she doesn't know many people. We had a really good time talking about our time in Texas for seminary (she went to southwestern) and about the adjustments to a new place. It was really good, and an answered prayer for sure. There are a couple more girls I'm hoping to connect with who are in ministry here in town. I think it will be good have some people who are kind of in the same place as me in life.
Friday night I hungout with Alex and Steve and then went to Alex's older brother's house to watch a movie with them all. We watched "Predator" or something like that. Uh, gross. First of all I don't do the whole being chased in the jungle thing. I don't like it when things jump out at you. AND NOW, thanks to that movie, I don't do giant slobbering dread locked aliens who bleed neon green. I accidentally screamed at one point, which was a bad idea. I think SteveO wished he had sat next to someone else. I tried to be hardcore, but it wasn't happening.
Saturday morning I had brunch with a great friend from high school. She was 1 of the 4 of us that made up "jack's chix," the goofy name we called ourselves. It's been awhile since I've gotten to spend time with her, so it was great to catch up. THEN after that, I went back to my house and slept almost all day. I havent been feeling well, and it was exactly what I probably needed. That night I did my duty as a new Tennessean and went to Seth's to watch the UT game. uh, too bad they lost, but I was glad I got to spend time with my friend.
Yesterday, with the students went well too. In all it was a good weekend, even though I thought a kidney stone might kill me yesterday. I was hardcore. I went and hungout with the band boys after I got done at church last night, and maybe I just laughed enough to show my kidney who was boss? Im feeling much better today... although a little like I just emerged from a drug induced coma. :)
