It is a winter wonderland outside! I am sad it was not this last year when I was staying here for Christmas. Of course the year I am headed home it is snowing. But I am not downgrading the 75 degree weather I am headed for. I am excited to go embrace the warmth!

This semester I know the Lord has been teaching me a lot of patience and how to show constant compassion. Those were two things I feel like I struggle with and I know the Lord has been stretching me in. There is still a lot to learn, but I know that I am not who I used to be either.

Well, California here I come!!!

Tonight was an adventure. We decided last week to have a dorm swap. Or actually all the RAs swapped dorms. We drew out of a hat and wound up at different dorms. I went to another girl dorm...Palm. I had a lot of fun. I mean I missed my Witt Chicks, but it definitely broke up the monotony. We played games, voted on fashion, ate dinner, and made baked oatmeal. I enjoyed watching how a different dorm operates as well as meet new students that I didn't know before. On behalf of all the BFA RAs I would say it was a successful surprise to everyone!

Fun Filled Football Fashion Fiasco

That is a mouth full and I am a little delayed about writing about this particular experience, but we had our Christmas banquet two weekends ago. All the girls looked beautiful. I just have a stunning dorm. 30-minutes before we left one of my girls came up to me and asked if I had any extra dresses because her dress didn't fit...so I told her to go and grab the one that was on my chair and get Laura to fix it. It turned out miraculously. Also, two of our girls were honored by the student body to be on the Christmas Banquet court. It was so exciting. Several of my friends and I went to a restaurant in town and ordered food to go. While we waited we made popcorn at our friend's house to take with us to the banquet. We brought our food to the school and watched all the performances of the students in the balcony.
The next day was our Powder Puff football game against one of the other girls dorm, Palm. I think it definitely brought our dorm together. It was funny...because many of our girls did not know how to play. Very few had actually gone to the practices I had with the girls. So when they went to play they asked...so what do I do, what is the point of this. One of our most confused girls was our best players. Too bad I couldn't play, but I was a great cheerleader from the sidelines (I have had years of practice...just a little).
