Human Pacman

April 23, 2008

Another in a series of videos that are keeping me sane. Scroll down if you missed the Harry Potter videos.

Here is human pacman. This gets me every time…I want to do this somewhere:

Who knew pacman screams and the ghost says, “waka-waka-waka”?

On Second Thought…

There’s always time for something funny. While nothing deep will be coming your way, I’ll pass along some things that make me laugh. Here’s one for today:

I heart Harry Potter. If you don’t like songs, this one is just funny:

Save the Date!

April 20, 2008

Hey y’all! I just wanted you to know that I’m still surviving and things are going pretty well…I think. I noticed that there are a few of y’all that are still checking the site and I didn’t want to loose all my readers in this hiatus. Feel free to keep checking back but I can tell you for sure the next one will be written by May 15th, so don’t forget about me! Thanks for your prayers!


so, so very stressed.

April 13, 2008

Alright, this is going to be my last post for a little bit. I’ve got so much left to do before my semester ends and so very little time to do it. I’m asking that you would all keep me in your prayers in these next few weeks. I’m really trying to keep my grades up right now and I’m just really concerned that it’s not going to happen. Between that, working, and spending time with James I’m just really overwhelmed. I figured that keeping up with my blog would be one small thing I could take off my list. Anyhow, please pray that I’m able to stay focussed and that I’m able to keep my priorities straight! Jess

Here are two of my favorite things:

The Office. This is the greatest show on television. Seriously. James and I were a little late on the office train we’ve really only started watching it in the past year. Someone once told me that I really should be watching it because it’s my kind of humor. Apparently this person thinks I have an awesome sense of humor because The Office is HILARIOUS. I can watch hours and hours of it, episode after episode. If you’re sick, there’s nothing better than one or two seasons straight of the office. It’s a good thing Netflix has it on their watch it now thingy. You probably already watch it but I just wanted you to know that it’s one of my favorite things.

Ok, so I just got distracted for like 15 minutes trying to pick out a clip from the NBC website to embed here and I just couldn’t pick. Just go there, waste your time, and watch some clips.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – the new one. Have you seen it? I was flipping through our movies looking for something to have on in the background while I did some tedious work for my statistics class and I thought this would be the perfect thing. It’s weird and hilarious. One of my favorite parts is where he says to all the kids, “You’re all quite short, aren’t you?” and Violet says back, “Well, yeah, we’re children.” And Willy Wonka says, “That’s no excuse. I was never as short as you.” And Mike TV says, “You were once.” And Willy says, “Was not! Know why? Because I distinctly remember putting a hat on top of my head. Look at your short little arms. You could never reach.” I also like how throughout the whole movie he accuses Mike TV of mumbling even yelling at one point, “Mumbler!” It’s so funny.

If you rent the DVD or borrow it from me you’ve got to check out the Bonus Features. One of my favorite memories with James is when we learned the Oompa Loompa dances in our bedroom. I laughed so hard I cried. Good times.

This blog was supposed to have pictures in it but I just can’t get them to work. Just imagine awesome pictures that make sense.

Feelin’ Good

April 2, 2008

Man, can I just tell you, I have been in the best mood the past few days. I know a couple of days isn’t really that great of a streak but I’m telling you – a really good mood. Do you know what I think it is? Peace. I think I’m experiencing peace.

I feel relaxed and I don’t feel stressed. I’m not worried about school or my grades. I don’t feel guilty for watching a few episodes of The Office or watching a little of Martha’s cupcake week (which I missed today – poo.)

I had people over to our apartment two days this week. Sure, maybe this doesn’t seem like a big deal to you but it is to me. I had people in my home and I liked it!

James and I have been having a lot of fun together and that’s always great.

Overall, I’m just enjoying things a little more. I think it’s got to be peace. When there is unrest in my heart it has to make it difficult for me to just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Do you know why I feel this peace? Because James and I have made a decision about our future. James and I both are going to go to Denver Seminary together. We’re both going to be full time at the same time. I don’t know how we’re going to do it. James went away this weekend to do some thinking about his life and some listening to the Lord. He really feels God’s direction toward us both going to school. For James, this is a lot of sacrifice. He’s 27 and already working on an engineering career. This is a move in an illogical direction. He’s really having to give up living by the world’s standards. I’m really proud of him and really think it’s the right decision. He came back from his trip saying that if this is what the Lord wants, he’s going to have to provide.

It’s going to be hard. It’s going to be so hard. Money! Oh, it’s going to cost so much money. But I’m excited. It feels like an adventure we’re preparing to take together.

We’re not sure about the details. We haven’t nailed down majors and we’re not even sure when we’re going to go. The tentative plan is Fall ’09 but it might be sooner or it might be later. There are so many things to think about. There’s going to be a lot for me to write about on this journey.

After school, we’re both thinking missions. We think we even know where but we’re still praying on that one. (And, really, we’re still praying on the school thing. God could still close the door. We both know we’ve heard him wrong before but this does just “feel” so right.) Sure, we could head to the mission field right now. We really could. We both just really have it on our heart to get as equipped as possible, specifically for what we’re planning on doing but I’ll write more about all that later.

So, yeah, feeling pretty peaceful. I hope it doesn’t keep me from wanting to do anything to do with school. We’ll see if I’m still feelin’ good after a big fat study day tomorrow.

Oh, yeah…I added a new recipe. It’s super delicious. Check it out!
