my life in twos

September 16, 2010 at 10:40 am 5 comments

Two things I am doing right now: eating breakfast.  And writing this post!

Two things that make me smile: I love passing people I know as I walk to class and yelling hello.  It makes the day so much brighter.  And I love the silly things that happen when it’s late at night and Roomie and I are trying to study.  Case in point: a week ago we had an impromptu, two-song dance party of sorts.  A few nights ago we had quite the scientific discussion on the uses of antibacterial soap and hand sanitizer and whether they really should be used every day. 

Two things that get on my nerves: one of my biggest pet peeves is being stuck walking behind a smoker.  All of the smoke blows my way, thankyouverymuch, and I have to put on an extra burst of speed and sometimes run just so I can pass them.  I can’t stand the smell of smoke.  My second pet peeve is also being stuck on a crowded sidewalk behind someone who is meandering.  I’m a bit of a power walker, and when I’m on my way to class, I usually have left just enough time to walk as fast as I can and make it to class on time.  So being stuck behind someone who is going rather slowly is very frustrating!

| Two foods I am craving: cantaloupe.  And pasta.  Not together, obviously!  And I just had cantaloupe for breakfast, so maybe I’m not craving it any more.  But I had been!

| Two things I’m looking forward to:  Toy Story 3 is playing for free at the student union tonight.  I wasn’t able to see it over the summer, and I am SO excited.  Also, this weekend is a football game.  And a barn dance with Navs.  It will be a fun weekend.

| Two things I’m, well, not looking forward to: my advertising exam next week.  Cold weather.  Dealing with the computer lab printers, which inevitably break down right when I have to print something (which would be now).  Okay, make it three. 

| Two books I’m reading: Besides school-related things, I’m reading A Place of Quiet Rest by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton.  Let’s rephrase that: I started Orthodoxy.  I think it will have to wait until Christmas.  His long and deep (but excellent!) arguments don’t really lend themselves to reading one or two scattered pages at a time.

| Two books you should read: Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis.  And Trusting God by Jerry Bridges.

Two things I’m going to do: put on makeup.  and run to class.

and one random note: it’s rainy today.  That means I get to use the new umbrella I bought from Target last week!  Personally, I think black umbrellas should be outlawed.  Okay, maybe not; they can be very classy.  But when it’s dreary out anyway, why contribute to the sea of gloom?  My umbrella is big pink and orange polka dots!  (I never said I minded standing out!)

Promises one of those days…

    Love it. Except, two of your “twos” have three. But that makes it special!

    Your umbrella (ella, ella, eh, eh, eh, under my um-ba-rella… sry, the word umbrella now evokes that song in my head…) sounds adorable! I haven’t had a chance to use mine yet, but on that count, I’m not complaining!

    I don’t know how you have time to read on top of all your school work. But then, you’re you, so it’s a good thing!

    And I would really like some pasta, too!!!
    Love you.

    Oh, I forgot… I hate getting stuck behind smokers too! And dawdlers…

    hehe! I’m not a math major. I never said I could count! 😉

    And my reading time is….welp, a couple pages during a quick lunch twice a week. And since I only get about three pages in, that’s why the heavier books are waiting until break!
