no. the dirty laundry pile did not eat tracy

January 31st, 2003

i’m freezing. i suppose if i stopped eating ice i would not be. *shrugs* o well

but anyways, i’ve been so bad at posting at my webpage, you would think that i had no life to talk about, but it’s the opposite actually. life has been difficult and awesome at the same time. i was dropped from all my classes before the semester, because they didn’t get my payment in time. so it’s been a struggle to get back into my classes. but sure enough the excuse “i’m graduating in may” actually works! 😀

and now that i’m in my classes, i’m excited for the semester. i’ve got one structured class (public speaking), two semi structured classes (photo techniques & a film class), and one completely open class. (fibers workshop) and in that class i just have to come up with some art projects, of my choice, no limits, no criteria. i love the freedom, and i’m super geeked about my first project idea. it’s taken from the Bible, II corinthians 4, 7-15, with the main focus of the project on the “earthen vessels” (which are the clay jars used for oil and grain.) which are put through an intense process by the potter to make them into beautiful, useful jars. i just find it awesome that God is the master potter, and we are His masterpiece. we go through tough times, but at all times we are in the strong, loving, caring hands of our Lord. and i still find it amazing that He will never throw away a piece of clay.

i’ve got a lot of other things to update you on, like how much fun i had at winterjam, but i’ll wait till i get the 12 rolls of film back from that. i also must say that there is such an awesome “renewed spirit” at crusade this semester. after the break, so many people are back with a revived fire, it’s so encouraging! i also have to say that i’ve seen numerous prayers answered lately, it’s awesome! and now, i’m gonna go work on something, maybe getting some pictures up… maybe working on homework… maybe changing out of my pj’s… or maybe i’ll just sit here eating more ice. *grin*

i's taking over!!! ahh!

lack of postage…

January 24th, 2003

sorry peeps. i’ve been busy with lots of stuff, and haven’t had time to post. i’m trying to get back into my classes, so that i can graduate, so that’s the main priority right now.

i also must say that justin rocks, cuz he helped me get my 120 gig hard drive working again. 🙂

and another thing, crusade was just what i needed. God is awesome, and i’m seeing prayers being answered so much lately. when i’m not so tired, i’ll have to post about some of the awesome things He has been doing lately. 🙂

one last thing, if you want to see a video i made with a small sample of all the video i took at the tcx conference over break.. check out my movies page. it’s a 16 mb file, so i’m sorry for all you modem people, it will take a while. but it is pretty cool if i do say so myself. i don’t know much about video editing, and i just played around in imovie for a while. so i’m happy with how it turned out.

off to bed. *waves*

it still smells like paint….

yay!

our new living room

(look at our new living room. :-))

before and after

(before and after)

so the new colors in the living room are rad 🙂 (and yes, i just used the word rad)

anyways, today when i donated blood, the blood center had the radio tuned to the fish. so i was singing along while i was being drained. and the funny thing is, the lady donating next to me, knew pretty much everyone at the fish, so we talked about the dj‘s, and concerts, and Christian music in general. it was super fun. 🙂

classes start tomorr— err… wait. it’s already tomorrow. soo.. classes start today. EEK! i need to go to bed. 😛 but before i do, if you have a free moment or two or thirty seven, check out the “Tales?of?the?Blode”… part one, two, three, four, five and six. these are HILARIOUS i tell ya! me and justin were watching them tonight. hehe.

anywho. i need to get to bed in order to be conscious for my classes today. good night!

smell that paint…

January 14th, 2003

so… the video that i commented about will be a little longer wait. why you ask? well my external hard drive went crazy this morning, and something got corrupted. now it cannot be recognized by my computer. just my luck. 20+ hours of work could be down the drain. *sigh*

but now, i must drive to minnesota again. *waves*
