Just another day in the neighborhood

August 10, 2006 at 3:36 pm (Day to Day)

With school starting in only a week and a half what better time to paint the UCM? Started yesterday, this is a job that will probably take us into next week. I’ve learned a few things so far: most importantly, don’t mess with peoples’ “vision” of how they see everything coming together. It’s actually going well so far. We aren’t completely sure how we want it, but so far the idea is to have the left wall of the UCM, if one was to stroll in the front door, a light green with two dark green stripes going horizontally down the wall, one in the middle and a thinner one on the wooden border about three-fourths the way to the top. The opposite wall is going to be a cream color. The small nook where the Coke machine used to be and where the literature for the passer biers is will be painted the dark green.

I am getting out of my normal routine of how I read the bible and am starting a study of the twelve minor prophets. Most of the minor prophets have a distinct pattern to them: the nations are sinful, there is an explanation of their sinfulness, there is a warning of bad things to come, there is a call to repentance, there is some sort of covenant made. Sometimes they repent, sometimes they get smote.

The carpet was put into the house on Tuesday, and I will probably start moving stuff in either today or tomorrow. I’m a little frustrated by how long it took since we were paying for a house that was inhabitable. There’s still some cleaning up that needs to be done, mostly on the outside though. The backyard is going to be a beast to clean and upkeep on it is going to get bothersome. I think it’ll look really nice once it’s all cleaned up.

I am ready for school to get under way. I haven’t seen a lot of my friends that much over the summer, specifically Tyler, Brendan, and Zane. Brendan went on a hiatus at the beginning of last semester due to a really bad situation but is back. I’m only taking fourteen hours, but four of the five are upper level history and sociology classes, leaving choices in wellness as my freebee class. Dr. Barton’s colonial America could be really tough. Dr. Sutton’s world history from 1919-1939 is going to require a lot of reading and some pretty difficult tests. I’m not too worried about my sociology classes. I had terrible attendance mixed in with poor study habits and rushed, last-minute research papers in human sexuality and still managed an A. I think I might add sociology as another major. I will still graduate in four years and it will compliment history well. Here’s my schedule for next semester:

Goo, so who is J Means and why is he or she taking over American colonial history? This will require some sloothing—or at least an email…. M, W, F is going to be cake schedule-wise. This will be the first semester I don’t have a class at 12:30 on T, R, meaning I won’t have to rush through lunch at the UCM and BSU/BCM/Nazideathcamp.
