Catching Up With Myself

Greetings. long lost friends!  I haven't posted in a very, very long time, and I apologize for that!  My life has sort of run away from me..... Some of the things that have occurred over the past couple weeks:

  • Women's night retreat: BeLoved 2012: UnTangled by Truth, with speaker and author Katrina Zeno.... wonderful evening!
  • Brahms' Requiem in Pittsburgh.  It was a great experience, and I'm so glad I went, but the ending was a bit of a let-down
  • STUDENTS FOR LIFE MEETING!!  I'm going to be on the Core team this semester, so I have a meeting every Monday.  I'm so blessed to work with these wonderful people.  I've been put in the Events group, so I'll be planning things for both on and off campus.
  • Tests.  Oh tests.  Both went better than I expected, which is always a nice thing.  
  • 1Flesh Rebellion info night!  Basically, a group of us are starting a "rebellion" of sorts... (no worries Mom and Dad, its peaceful :D ) We're going to begin an online protest of contraception, since it's a problem that effects the whole country.  We haven't divided up tasks yet, but I'm guessing that I'm going to be involved in the online design aspect..... super pumped about this!!
  • CATECHETICS IMMERSION DAY!!  This was a whole day dedicated to learning more about various areas of Catechetics.  I was able to attend talks by a Campus Ministry director, a Catholic high school teacher, and a director of youth ministry.  I think I've now pretty much decided that I want to go into youth ministry.  Happy Day!!
  • Movie night with friends- we watched There Be Dragons, which was an absolutely amazing movie about St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei.  Although the movie was partly fiction, I still really enjoyed it.  Definitely recommend!
Other various shtuff:

  • I'm taking 18 credits this semester, so I've got a larger amount of reading than last semester.
  • I LOVE EMBRYOLOGY!!!!  (something tells me that I've mentioned this before)
  • Media and Society is fascinating!  We're currently going over the 1st amendment, which is bringing up a lot of interesting points about free speech, like, what we can and can't say.  Woah.  I didn't know there were so many sides to this issue!!
  • My brother and niece are coming to visit me next week!  You can't even begin to understand how excited I am.....
OK, well, I've got to work on a paper..... I've got a busy day tomorrow!  4 classes, here I come!


  1. Wow!! Your Media and Society class sounds like it couldn't be more timely with all that's going on with the government overstepping its bounds with religion these days!!

  2. OH OH! I was there for that movie! See I commented.

  3. We saw "There Be Dragons" last night & really enjoyed it. I had heard mixed reviews on it and so wasn't sure what I would think, but I thought it was very well done and compared to other movies w/ a Christian message that have been done lately, I thought it was high quality. Of course, the message was great as well. Love St. Josemaria!
