news i must not hold inside

I have to pee, so fortunately for you this post will be quick.

There are a few tidbits of news that I cannot hold inside.  This weekend's been awfully exciting.

First of all, I realllllyyy want to go to Northwestern College in Orange City now.  Oh, sigh.  What loveliness.  And I'm no longer scared of college.  The world is a beautiful place.  Scholarships would make it even beautifuller.

Secondly, I may go to France this summer.  I haven't even told Kara this (who I visited NWC with less than 24 hours ago).  It's rather new.  There's a mission trip opportunity for 1 1/2 months(?)  to tell kids and communities about Jesus there with Teen Missions International using puppets, vacation Bible school, discussion.. that sort of thing.  I'd start at a boot camp in Florida for team building to get us raw, real, and ready.  Huge.  Huge.

Thirdly, I just noticed how jerky my blogging is.  The periods pop up like potholes in a road and you can hear  brakes screeching or something.  But here in my kitchen all I hear is the pleasant tapping of my keys and El Tejano Spanish music (very happy noises).  This is why my dear friends are mistaken about the quality of my blogging skills... periods work better when one is using one's voice instead of one's blogging style.  Ah, speaking.  My real forte.  I am really in love with the sound of my own voice.  Oh dear.  That's why a summer in France is a good idea.

Love, E
