Today was another snow day, and so is tomorrow! I'm wondering if we'll even have school on Friday, though I really really hope so since it's hip-hop! I love that class! *crosses fingers*
I slept in too long for my liking today ('til 1:30 *facepalm*) but, I still managed to get another page in my menu design done as well as scan in my new pictures for 365 days project and clean up the dorm a little bit. Me and Cheryl started a new group on DeviantART, titled "SaishuuOtakuShinjas" which means in Japanese (roughly XD) "Gathering Anime Loving Christians". It's cool, cause the acronym is "SOS" which means a cry/call for help or signaling for help, which is what we should always do in the quest to share God's glory; as well as what we should do, cry out to God, in need of help. The group will have any sort of uplifting artwork/encouraging artwork, or Christian themed artwork. I'm so excited to see this group grow! Plus it's fun being co-founder. :)
Today was also very memorable, because me and my roommate, Lara, got out of our dorms finally and romped around in the snow! But not just meaningless romping, no... we took an adventure to Ted's restaurant! It's about a 20 minute walk from our dorm, and it was night, with slick roads and snow everywhere and negative temperatures -- but, it wouldn't be an adventure if there wasn't a sense of risk! We made it though and they were open, and it was the best food EVER since we walked just to get it. It really made me feel grateful in general, though, for all the luxuries we have just to get to places conveniently. Americans can easily take advantage of all that kind of stuff, like cars, or even bikes, as well as the fact that everything is usually relatively close. It also made me grateful for the delicious, plentiful supply of food we do have here. Some people walk miles and miles just to gather water that's dirty, or to go to a town to get a loaf of bread that will last them the whole week. It really humbled me, even if it just seemed like something for fun.
Thought I'd share some of the pictures we took with you guys. It was a fun adventure!
So after we got back, I did some abdominal workouts and I'm feeling it! The gym is closed, so, I had to do some old-fashioned crunches, but, I'm very determined and stubborn to lose weight and get toned. I'm one step closer!
Tomorrow I plan on doing more homework, some drawing, and do even more cleaning/organizing around the room. Possibly go to the gym if it's open, if not, just do some working out here. It will be very nice when things get back in order again; I'm starting to miss the routine of classes and getting to go out to see friends and drive around and stuff. And I miss the warm sun!
Oh, I can't wait until summer.
But, snow is fun for now.
Enjoy some awesome pictures. :) Mattie & Cheryl got me inspired to start doing this for my blogs now, teehee.
