I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
a window and a pigeon with a broken wing;
You can spend your whole life working for something
just to have it taken away...
But love will come set me free,
love will come set me free
I do believe!
Love will come set me free,
I know it will.

This week has been a doozy.

Something that I am always THANKFUL for is the fact that every time I get to that point where I feel like I am going to lose it, when I feel so overwhelmed by things that are honestly out of my control...I get a sweet break/vacation/getaway. I cant have time to just not have to worry or think or stress...Really, I think the Big Man upstairs has my back in that respect.

Mr. VU was Thursday night, which is a man pageant we have at Vanguard. 8 (I think) of my guy friends competed for the title, and basically just impressed my pants off.

That sounded bad...I don't mean OFF, but you know...

Anyways, it is always one of my favorite nights because I am laughing the whole time, and get to see hot boys do silly things. It is a good time for sure.

Friday was funny because in one of my classes during a presentation, the dreaded "embarrassing moment" happened to my friend know, the thing when you accidentally type in the address to a porn site so that it is projected in front of the entire class...seriously, SO funny. It was one of those moments that bonded our class in an unspeakable way, and it kept me laughing the whole day. (Actually...I still am laughing). I just love awkward moments like that.

Then I headed off to Palm Springs for the ASB retreat. I won't go into that much detail because it was simply just a lot of laying out, pedicures, eating and screaming...but some things that I loved:

1-Playing Scatergories late at night. Probably not the most legit way to play...but so fun
(sidenote with this one: NEVER play with Ellie Kaiser. EVER)

2-Getting to tell people that inspire me that they do. Also, spending 6 hours talkig with people...but feeling like it was about 30 minutes. You know it's meaningful when it is like that/

3-Getting to see where people have been all year, and how they have out their own feelings aside for the good of the group. Such a testament to the sacrifice it has been.

4-Eating some freaking GOOD nachos. Cerealsy. So good.

5-Getting 100338r3q3r% more excited to be a legit (ha) part of this organization next year, and thinking about how amazing our time is going to be.

Those were just some things that I am THANKFUL for. God gave me some sweet times this weekend, and now on to finish the rest of the school year (3 WEEEEEKS!). We will see how that goes.
