I am not one to have many headaches, and if I do they rarely get me down. But ugghhh I have had a headache ALL day today! I'm not sure if it's sinus pressure or from allergies, but it needs to go! I've gone about my day like I normally would because I thought maybe if I got my attention off of it, it would go away. No luck. Hopefully I will feel better in the morning! 22 more work days to go! 4 weeks and 2 days total until my last day!!! Can you feel my excitement?

Bits and pieces

First- Jeremy came home from the hospital yesterday! Thanks to everyone for praying!

Second- I went to my dermatologist yesterday to get my Accutane prescription. He informed me that my cholesterol is slightly high and that I will probably want to eat low fat/low cholesterol while on the Accutane because it can make your levels spike. This news wasn't overly surprising because I remember my pediatrician telling me when I was bout 8 that I had high cholesterol. SO now I'm all freaking out about heart disease and such and spent $53 at Kroger stocking up on yummy food that is also good for me. I will also start exercising. In fact, I walked from my house to CVS and back today (according to mapquest, it's 2.88 miles round trip). I might as well use the high cholesterol as motivation to take care of myself and get healthy.

Third- I finally got my Chacos. I wound up having to order the wide size (I have a wide foot...eep!), which they didn't have in the color I originally wanted. So, I got these:

So far I like them, even though I have blisters on my feet at the moment. Once I get them worn in it shouldn't be a problem.

It's official

My last day of work will be June 30th. I turned in my notice today. I will also be moving back in with my parents (I plan on staying gone a lot) at the end of June. The first week of July is my trip to Alaska, and I may have some random trips along the way. I am SUPER excited! As far as school goes, I am waiting for Asbury to do a background check and then hopefully accepting me! I will move to KY at the end of August and start classes in September. :)

One of my references didn't go through as planned. Please pray this gets resolved quickly and satisfactorily. Thanks.

Thoughts on the Gosselins

I really hope that Jon and Kate can work out their problems and stay together. I hope that they seek God in this time and do what is best in the eyes of God and best for their children. Everyone struggles, everyone stumbles. Jon and Kate are no different and shouldn't be expected to be perfect just because they are in front of the camera. As professed Christians, there are certain expectations, but let us not forget to have compassion and mercy. As silly as it may seem for me to care about a family I only know through TV, I am really rooting for The Gosselins. They are real people with real children. They are human. Gossip is gossip, whether it's about someone we know or about a "celebrity" on tv. We should speak words that build people up, words that encourage and inspire. We should speak truth. (A post on lies and deception is for another day...). I hope that Jon and Kate have friends, pastors, family, or anyone who can minister to them during this time, intercede to God on their behalf, and help them find their way. I pray they will trust God enough to follow his voice, even if that means ending their show or a decrease in their income. I pray they get their priorities in order and realize that an ongoing, growing relationship with God is essential to being a good spouse and parent. I pray that they realize how important a loving and caring marriage centered around God is to being a good parent. I always feel sad for the children in these situations. They are innocent and usually the ones hurt the most. May God restore this family. Or maybe I should say, I pray the family chooses God's restoration and healing.

Prayer Request Update

Jeremy is doing "a lot better." Today, they said he has meningococcal encephalitis. Thanks to those who have prayed/are praying for Jeremy. I know his friends and family really appreciate it.

Please keep praying...

...for Jeremy. He is in ICU. He had a couple seizures the last few days and is disoriented. Please, please pray for God's healing. Also, please remember Jeremy's family and friends, as they are very worried about him. Pray that God would give them peace and faith. Thanks!

I got nothin...

In the words of the loser of the name-calling battles that CJB and I have...I got nothin'. Nothin' to blog about, that is. There has been plenty going on, but nothing that seems good fodder for my little piece of the blogosphere. Work is fine. Friends are great. Mexican food is wonderful. I had it 3 times last week. Oh's something I can share. I am getting a pair of Chacos for my trip to Alaska. Not everyone likes them, so I do not care if you think they are ugly. And yes, Alaska will not be hot. Once again, I don't care. It will be upper 50's, maybe low 60's. Don't hate.

I went to look at them last week and was going to buy a pair, but they didn't have my size. I relayed this information to a friend, and what did he do? He went out and bought himself a pair (in orange), just to rub in my face! What a loser! :)

Some prayer requests

Hello, My Blog (and real life) Friends (and family). I have some requests, and I feel led to ask for YOUR (meaning those who read my blog) prayers. Some reasons for this:
  • You guys are great "prayer warriors"
  • I know that you love me and God
  • I know that you will pray for my requests, but ultimately God's will
  • Something on my heart is prompting me to ask
My requests are:
  • God will provide the funding for my education.
  • God will provide the funding for me to visit the little girl I sponsor through Compassion International. Her name is Maureen.
  • God will provide the funding for me to support Maureen in Compassion's Leadership Development Program once she graduates highschool (she's only 12).
  • God will heal Maureen's mother and soften her father's heart so that he will be changed.
  • God will use Maureen in a mighty way and fully develop the potential he has placed in her.
  • God will not let Maureen go a day where she feels unloved, unwanted, or unworthy. He will always wrap her in his love.
  • God will provide my bff Tommy with a job BEFORE his current job ends June 30th.

I have intentionally listed these requests as statements because I am believing that God will provide. If you feel led, please pray in agreement with me and send up any other prayers God lays on your heart. I appreciate you all so much.

Soooo...I just deleted both my myspace AND my facebook accounts. Well...I "deactivated" them. I am still reachable (obviously) through this lovely blog and also e-mail....sayruh.noel {at} gmail {dot} com.

It's been a little while...

...but here i am. Work is still ridiculous, as I have no office, no desk, and no space of my own except for a box that has some of my notebooks in it. It's super frustrating, and we won't be back in our old building anytime soon.

All of my admissions stuff for Asbury is almost complete. I just have to get 2 more references turned in, and I should be good to go. I'm excited!

Last night, Katie and I made homemade tiramisu. It turned out really well and was delicious. KB, I will make some for Jay sometime :). Tell lil Baby Rory that I love her!

My trip to Alaska is only a couple months away. Yay! I'm taking a little roadtrip at the end of this month to pick up my friend Barry from the Appalachian trail. He is hiking 200 miles. Ridiculous. Katie is going with me so we are going to go down a day early and spend the night somewhere. Should be fun!!

Now, I am off to Green Hills with mi hermana y mama.
