Sundays.

Sundays. Church days! Lazy days. Should do my homework days! So I've gone to two different churches and I kinda wanna write about my experiences just 'cause. They were both similiar but not. So yeah. Let's go. So first, I'll preface this with the fact that I seriously love David Crowder. and I met him. =) That was cool. It wasn't earth shattering. But I was probably like super tired because it was Welcome Week and we were busy soooo much. He was so chill and taller than I imagined. I'm hoping I will have future encounters with him. I'd like to chat with him without being a fan. Anyways, so the first Sunday rolls around and I go to University Baptist Church at 10:30, aka DC*B's church. I went with one of my friends and it was a good time. The worship was obvi real good. The sermon wasn't bad, but I couldn't tell you what it was about anymore. The church itself is like in a warehouse-ish building. Like the floors aren't carpeted and our seats are black plastic with metal legs and whatnot. It was a lot of college kids and some adults. After UBC, we went to Antioch with some people from our WW group. Antioch was more established, kinda reminded me of Grace..maybe it was just the cushy chairs. haha. The people at Antioch were also a lot of college kids and graduates. I felt like there the people were wayyy more into the whole "Jesus thing". It was pretty intense. I equated it to Nick Brooks times like 200. because that's like how many people there were. hah. actually I'm horrible with estimating crowds sooo who knows. Um so yeah. I liked both though for their different reasons so I just don't know what Imma gonna do. Bahh.
That reminds me. I went to UBC again this week, by myself which kinda sucked but it was a good service called "Couch Talk" where the 'leaders' of the church or the different aspects of the church rather, talked about the purposes and the vision and stuff and it was cool. DC*B rocked out again. I liked the worship set a lot more this time, if that's possible with those guys. =) So that was this Sunday.
   Sunday night I went to a "lifegroup" which is like small groups, with one of my WW leaders[it was her group she goes to] and then 2 other friendlies from our WW group, Nathan and Kristin. Life group was really unique. We worshipped together, ate good food, and prayed about the coming year, what we wanted the group to do, look like etc. Then we split up into girls and guys and just shared something we were struggling with and what not and then prayed for eachother in pairs. It was super cool. Everyone there was real nice and all about God. Honestly, I've never really been around people so like that. Like I was talking to one of the guys there and he's like "hey do you have a personal relationship with Jesus?" I'm like "yes i do" and he's all "Can you describe to me what it's like?" and I'm like "Whaaa?" I was totally not expecting that. So I asked him to describe his and he launched into all this stuff that God's been doing in his life and it was really neat. I was like "Gee, I wanna be like that." I don't know how people get like that. It's crazy.
So this video is from Serenade. I believe I mentioned that in a previous post. =) Sorry if it's like all weird set up. I'm not very good with technology. I made a tumblr before this and it was like super not cool like other people's I've seen so I thought this might be a little simpler for me. =)

ME TOO.

So I kinda suck at this whole updating thing. I don't even know where to start. bahhhh. Welcome week activities? Well, the coolest stuff that went on I already posted pics of but i'll elaborate more I guess? So Friday night was a Hall Tradition night, the guys' dorms all went around to the different girls' dorms and serenaded them. It was hilarious albeit a bit awkward. They gave out flowers and danced with girls. aka awkward. Because they totally just danced with the pretty girls. Although some guy did dance with me. I don't even remember his name and he didn't give me a flower. and I was just like..uhh this is weird. I'd rather talk with you than dance and talk with you. It was so hot that night too. So we were all sweaty and it was great. haha. But after all the guys' came by, the last dorm that visited us NoRo girls was Martin hall. They had a dance party thing in the basement of SoRo. NoRo and SoRo stand for North and South Russell. I'm in North Russell. I hung out with two other girls and two Martin guys for a while. They were super nice. But I didn't get their numbers because I didn't have my phone on me! Sad pandas.
Another fun thing was The Big Event on Saturday night. The theme was Neon Nights. So our welcome week group all got together and got shirts and spray painted them neon and they looked sweet. There was a live band, Blue Finger Disco, from Austin. They were great but slightly sketch. I don't really like dancing at all but I danced at this craziness. It was friggin' awesome. My calves were sore the next day. The next day was Sunday. aka church day! aka new post. over and out scouts. =D

The Beginning

So I'm not sure how I'll be at this blogging thing, bear with me. haha. bear joke. Those happen kinda a lot at Baylor. So yeah. Baylor. I'm here! =) The journey down was long. That's really all I want to say about that. Move in day was last Thursday. That was good. I took my math placement test that morning before moving in, went and moved in, met my roommate, went back to the hotel and ate lunch, went shopping at Target where everyone and their brother was getting stuff for Baylor dorms. It was hilarious.
So we basically spent a whole lot of the day moving me in. My roommate Rachel is super nice. She's from Houston so I can hang out with her family over the breaks where I won't go home. Anyways, after moving me in all all that, we had a welcome dinner and it was hot out. hah. After that Mom and Dad left me and went to their "Parent Split Party" and I went to meet my welcome week group. That was kind of hard because I still didn't know anyone besides my roommate and we weren't together. But I found my group quickly. The leaders, Bethany and Christine were FAB. Our whole group was FAB. We're hanging out lots even though Welcome Week is done. =) Thursday night was still tough because we weren't really close as a group yet and I was feeling really lonely. I got lost walking back to my dorm too. But it's a safe campus. =)
This is getting long for one entry so I'm going to stop and do homework and skype with the rentals, then I'll try to get back to this.
