Dorm funnies....

Ok so on campus we have pet names for the dorms. For example my dorm, Vanderburgh is refered to as the prison by some for a couple of reasons. A) the number of doors we have to unlock to get into our rooms. and B) how freaking militaint Vandy Staff are about checking boys in and getting them checked out by midnight during the week. And if you lose the card you get when you check someone in, then you lose visitation for two weeks in all dorms.

Morris is the Motel 6, cause its the shabbiest dorm on campus.

Clark is the Hilton cause it was just renovated.

I heard a story today about a tour guide that was giving the tour and used the terms to describe the dorms. Hahaha. It made me giggle. I giggled lots. haha.

Love,
Me

Tube Race Pics....








GO TEAM FRUIT LOOPS!
And yes...we are aware our tube slightly resembled a penis. When we put it up in the storage closet we referred to sections of the tube as the base and the shaft. Uh yeah, we're that cool. And We did come in last place.......Pretty much. But we're proud.

Guys, It's a matter of Pride....

So I just completed the tube race, which for those of you that don't know the tube race is like a mile stretch down the Wabash river, on tubes tied together. It was super cool. I was with the gay-straight alliance/Pride group. It was actually the first year that the the GSA group has ever had a float in in the race, which makes us even more awesome. We finished like second to last, but we just don't care because we had a blast. And we are damn proud of our second to last place...well it might be last. I have a couple funnies for you actually.

We all were in downtown Vincennes and I heard Tylor say " Ok guys gather around James." He was changing and we were shielding the rest of the town from seeing James' junk. It's what friends do I guess.

OK so I am going to finish up this post for I want to hit the mini street fair going down downtown, and I need to get dressed for that.

Love,
ME

Uhhhh Awkward...So

So ten minutes ago, not even that. I'm in my dorm room chilling out, in a towel. And my roommates friend, and her friends dad walks in. And here I am thinking " oh shit....what happens now". Cause Veronica is still moving in so I didn't know if he was planning on sticking around...or what. Yeah it was awkward.

Haha...fuunny

The other day I was walking back to my dorm and this kid stopped me and asked if i had a lighter...and he was coughing and just sounded ill-like. I said that I didn't smoke...and he proceeded to say while hacking up a lung..." that sucks." Really I don't think it's too bad.

hahah.

ugh today.

Today was a day. At 11 I went to get lunch. Then got a migrane, so I napped through my 12:30 class. I realized when I woke up at my ipod was nowhere to be found. So I called the dining hall it wasn't there. And it's not in my room. I turned my room upside down today. ugh.....
blah.........

So freaking annoyed.

Post Secret Sundays


"I can't believe how many poeple have the same secrets as me!"

Retreat.

So this weekend I went on a retreat with the campus ministries…and it was ok. It was all about politics and the election and stuff. The very last session was all about preserving the one man one woman family, ending abortion, and resisting contraceptives. Which really rubbed me the wrong way, for a lot of reasons.

I’ll start with abortion. As I have said before, I don’t think I would choose abortion, however until I have been in a situation where I found myself with an unplanned/unwanted pregnancy. I cannot judge what I would do. And because I can’t judge what I would do in that event, I can’t judge those who choose to get abortions. ‘

Same sex marriage….Ten percent of the population is gay/lesbian. I don’t see how ten percent of the population can be denied the right to get married in wedded bliss, just because they have a different sexual preference. And I know the people I spend my Thursday nights with would agree with me. For those of you that don’t know Thursday nights is the Pride/GSA meeting.

Contraceptive….Uhhh so what’s so wrong about preventing a pregnancy you don’t want in the first place? Clearly if you want kids, you aren’t on the pill/using condoms. Yeah yeah yeah I know in theory it messes with God’s will and what not. But I think that if God really wants to you have a baby, then he’ll bypass whatever contraceptive you use to try and prevent it. Some of my friends were those kinda babies.

The first speaker reminded me a whole lot of a bad lecture, in which nothing he talked about really connected. It was crazy long too. But the second speaker, a catholic, was much better. He moved around and got some audience involvement. Even if he was talking about hot button issues, on which I held a very different opinion than most of the room about

However the entire weekend was made worth it at the campfire. There is so much to be said for sitting around campfire singing worship songs. Mmmmm. And there were smores…..mmm smores. I had forgotten how awesome unaided, just a guitar and a djembe worship can be. We did that at camp. It makes me sad I had already forgotten.

I miss camp. I really miss it. I really wish I could go back in the role of a camper again. The next time I go back I’ll b a counselor, I’ll be responsible, for making sure my kids aren’t late to dinner, or to breakfast. Haha, now that is funny. Me, on time…..to anything? I’ll probably be late to my funeral. But that’s not the point. I spent tenish summers at camp and loved every single one. I guess I’ll always be a camp kid at heart.

In other news I am signed for the Vincennes University tube race down the Wabash river on family weekend, September 20th. It’ll be gross, cold, wet and dirty…But awesome. Haha. There is a possibility of shirtless boys, which is always a plus. Mmmm shirtless boys. But only if they have attractive abs and if they don’t, I’ll just pretend that they do.

Saturday, September 13, 2008

soooo uhhh....gimme a title.

So it's been a while since a real update.

College is good. My roommate is moving out on Monday which means I may be roommateless for up to 2 weeks. So that is cool.

At this very second I am on a retreat with the campus fellowship group thingy, and I'll withhold judgment til tomorrow. However.....It's about being a christian and your civic responsibility...aka voting. Ummm yeah. Take it how you will.

I'm about to go to bed....but I'll catch you on the flipside kids......

Inspiration-Stephen Speak

You are my inspiration in work and in play
In the verses I sing and the words that I say
You are to my life, what the sunshine is to the day
And you know that you're welcome to stay

Every candle has a match
And every Journey has a start
Every day has a sunrise
To motivate it's start
And like the cool waters flow
From the mountain spring
You are hope to my soul
That there's more than I've seen

Haha I love english class.

I have some funnies from english class. So this sentence is in my english book
"I think that we're all mentally ill: those of us outside the asylums only hide it a little better"
We had a discussion about stephen king and horror movies today in class. From horror movies we jumped to serial killers, then from serial killers to porn. This is one of the boys opinions on nudie bars.
"Just because I do it doesn't mean i want to see everyone else doing it"
I just giggled. It was funny.

The wall of Christmas gifts



I finished one christmas present today. I have started a wall of Christmas gifts. Only twenty more gifts to go. If you get a gift from me. You'd better be super thankful.

Chrissy Briles

I don't think I have talked about Chrissy in here yet. Chrissy is a 5th grader back home in Marion. In the spring she went to the hospital because she had an infection or something( if this is wrong please correct me). She is going home this week, to pass away at home. Pray for this family, as they surely need it. The link to the families blog is here.

"Our eating disorders have brought us closer than ever."

Ok so I picked this one because, as some of you know I am involved in the Recovery Buddies project. I have met several really amazing girls who are fighting back against eating disorders. The youngest is 15 and it just goes upwards from there. Their eating disorders have brought us closer.

I encourage you to bookmark the recovery buddies blog. It's fun place.

Sex God- Rob Bell

I just finished Sex God by Rob Bell, who I think is a genius. And I have tabbed sections in the book I really liked so I can find them again and share them with you. And I'm going to give you a section found on page 98.

"Love is handing your heart to someone and taking the risk that they will hand it back because they don't want it. That's why it is such a crushing ache on the inside. We gave away part of ourselves and it wasn't wanted.

Love is giving away of power. When we love, we give the other person the power in the relationship. They can do what they choose. They can do what they like with our love. They can reject it, they can accept it, they can step toward us in gratitude and appreciation.

Love is a giving away. When we love we put ourselves out there. We expose ourselves, we allow ourselves to be vulnerable.

Love is giving up control. It's surrendering the desire to control the other person. The two- love and controlling power over the other person- are mutually exclusive. If we are serious about loving someone, we have to surrender all the desires within us to manipulate the relationship."



Ok kids that's it for now. I just felt like I should share that with you. I'm sure there will be more from Sex God posted up here.

Love,
Allie

I'm glad I never lived next to the water....

Busy busy busy me. Where do I start?

I got my tickets to the Jon Mclaughlin concert on the 20th. Second row bitches. Seriously kids, I'm going to marry him one day, he just doesn't know it. I think we'd have attractive children.

Today walked to the public library. And got some books. Then walked to main street. I found my way into this little gift shop. Then I walked back to the dorm. All and all I think it was like 40 blocks. And I didn't get lost.

Hmmm. What else is new. hmmm. I am crazy tired right now. So imma call myself done for now.

Love of the unconditional kind.

Tonight during the service I was just at the pastor was talking about gifts, the ones that come out of the blue, like right in between Christmas and your birthday. Those kind we are always wary to accept, for fear of what you might have missed to cause the other person to give you the gift in the first place. He talked about the greatest of all the gifts you can be given is unconditional love.

Now I'm am super blessed to have any amazing friend who I can tell anything to. We're totally open, about everything. Our friendship is unconditional. And I am so blessed to have that. I am so freaking thankful for that friendship.

That's just a little side note. I encourage all of you to seek out who you have unconditional love with and to invest in that relationship.

I love you,
Allie

You're a star falling out of my skys...

So I was just at the midweek worship service and the sermon was about gifts and accepting the greatest gift of all, a gift that is sometimes just so hard to accept. The gift of unconditional love from God, or even friends and family. And the preacher hit on how blessed people that have the gift of unconditional love between friends.
And I have a friend whom, we are super tight. He knows more about me than any other person. We have a good heart to heart conversation about once a week, and then midweek if needed. I so look forward to our weekly conversation. I know I can tell this guy anything, no fear of judgement, or disownment. I hope he feels the same about me. He knows more about me than any other person. I am more honest with him than any other person, ever.

The top things I am glad I brought with me...

So the top things I'm glad I brought to college with m:
My Chacos- The two days I've been here, that I didn't wear my chacos. My feet were killing me.
My iPod case-This is such a great case. Right now I have two. I prefer my old one, just cause it's a bit more broken in. I can't count the times I've dropped my ipod on unforgiving concrete, or hard tile floors. But with the case. It doesn't matter.
My Nalgene bottle- just a durable bottle. Does the job well.

Thats about it for now.
Bye kids.

Uhhhhhhh!?

Afraid the dam will be to annoying to use? There are some steps you can take to free your hands during oral sex. One reader said she uses scissors and a sews a dam into a pair of panties to create a dental dam holder. Any materials you use should be washable and have no sharp edges.


I stole this paragraph from this article.

But it is talking about dental dams, used for oral sex. And i just have to comment on the last sentence of that paragragh. Like you'd use something with sharp edges on/near your vulva.....Uh I wouldn't.

Anyway, thats it for now,
