Saturday Night

It's 9:26 p.m. on Saturday night.  I am writing a paper.  Does that make me pathetic?

I spent most of the day in bed with a horrific sinus headache complete with coughing and sneezing (which made my head hurt worse!) and a growly-sounding manly voice.  Bruce told me I sounded pathetic - but then he made me coffee and breakfast, brought me medicine and water and went out to the grocery store so we would have lunch and dinner.

I have watched almost all of Friends Season 4 today.  Why did this show ever go off the air?

It poured for most of the day with the occasional huge clap of thunder thrown in.  Even with the headache it was still peaceful to listen to the sound of rain - and I'm really hoping that all of the rain washes the pollen - the source of my headache - away!

Bruce and I went to the Candler Spring Banquet last night.  I started to get nostalgic, sappy and emotional about leaving the friends that I have grown so close to these last three years.  School may have fried me out, but I truly love the people that have walked with me on this journey.  I'm not sure I have completely processed what graduation means.

Speaking of my brain being completely fried ... I took an entire course in NonProfit Management last year and tonight it took me 30 minutes to come up with the word, "Endowment" - I may be emotional, but I'm ready to have my brain work in a different way.

I'm getting very impatient waiting for my camera to come back to me.  I'm been saving my pennies for another lens and I can't make up my mind.  Up until this morning I was debating between this macro lens and this telephoto zoom lens.  But then this morning I discovered this 50mm lens whose F/Stop goes down to 1.4.  It would give me an incredibly shallow depth of field, which I love.  There is also a wide-angle lens that I love but there is no way I can afford that now.  Anybody have any thoughts?  Granted, all of this is a moot point until I get my camera back.

I've decided that I want to write a book of daily devotionals.  I've found that I cannot relate to a lot of the ones that are out there, but I really crave that daily spiritual focus.  How does one go about writing a book anyway?  Maybe I'll try to write them over the summer and start a blog next year and post them daily.  Do people read devotional blogs?

I think that's it for now.  How was everyone else's Saturday?  Is it pouring anywhere other than Atlanta?


  1. did you really ask why Friends went off the air? Um, because it was AWFUL

    I don't have any photography equipment thoughts for you unfortunately...I'm photo-dumb.

    It's raining up here too, quite a crappy Sunday.

  2. Get the 50mm lens- I have it and it's the best!! The only real problem I have found with my Rebel is that it has a hard a time handling my telephoto zoom lens- it's too much lens for the camera. I mean it still works, just not as well as it could. But I really love my 50mm lens and I've heard good stuff about that macro lens.

    I LOVE Friends and I think it should never have gone off the air. The last episode was my senior year of college- like 1 week before I graduated. ahh, memories!
