Q: What do you call a toothless grizzly bear?

A: A gummy bear.

Come on, you know it made you laugh!

In other news, my summer plans have been firmed up, so I'm going to go live with Tricia this summer. I'm super excited! Taco Bell within walking distance = Heaven. I'ma start calling around for jobs next week hopefully.

In other news, application is going well. Have a bunch of writing to do, most of which will happen over spring break (only one more week of class!). Once I get that stuff in, I'm pretty much done with the application, which I am excited about. Woot. 

In other news, God has blessed me with some great friends recently. It's funny how He does that out of nowhere. For the last couple months I've just sort of been chilling and doing my own thing, but God's been showing me that He doesn't want me to be complacent and content with that and to prove it He's been throwing people at me that as far as I can tell He wants me to cultivate friendships with. I love people, so it's pretty exciting. 

In other news, a few friends and I have decided that the BCM here on campus is not nearly as social as it should be, so we're gonna start making social events and such to get people more involved. I'm excited about that, as well. We're also going to clean out the attic at the house that BCM owns and organize it and find all kinds of cool stuff hidden up there (We found a 72" inflatable ball! Can anyone say Super Awesome Game Day?!). We were up exploring it at like 2am last night and it was superfun. Now we're all motivated to clean it up. There's all kinds of BCM history up there going back to the 40s, and we want to find that and make it accessible to everyone. We'll proly have an attic-cleaning day soon after spring break. I'm excited about that too.

So, overall, lots of exciting things going on. Yay God and yay friends!

I know that I owe you guys a for-real post, and I promise to get back to you about that soon ... ish, at least. Right now I'm starting to try and decide what I want to do this summer. At the moment, my desired time-track for going abroad would be training in October, leaving in January, so I'd have my summer mostly free. I could go home and live with my parents and work all summer. This would be viable, especially since they're kind of struggling with the concept of me being gone for two years. My best friend has also offered to let me sublease with her for the summer, which would be SUPERFUN, especially since I never get to see her, and I would still be near-ish my parents (only a 4-5 hour ride. Easily a weekend trip.), and I would work all summer. Pretty much no matter where I end up I need to work all summer. It's just a matter of where. Also what. I'm not real picky. Don't want to do fast food, but retail or something would be fine. Just want a job. Go to work. Come home. Not have homework. I'm just not sure where it should be. Should I live with my parents? Sublease with my best friend? Hmmmmm. Let me know if you have the answer.

Rushing Franklin St

Hark the sound of Tar Heel voices, ringing clear and true,

Singing Carolina's praises, shouting NCU (N! C! U!)

Hail to the brightest star of all, clear it's radiance shiiiiiiine.

Carolina, price! less! gem!, receive all praises thine!

I'm a Tar Heel born, I'm a Tar Heel bred, and when I die, I'm a Tar Heel dead!

So it's rah rah, Carolina-lina, rah rah Carolina-lina, rah rah Caroliiina, rah! rah! rah!

(the nice version :P )

Apparently, shouting N! C! U! didn't start up as a tradition until the 80's, and shouting (instead of singing) the priceless gem part is even more recent than that. Also apparently, the fight song didn't start being tagged on to the end of the alma mater until the 1920's, and they kept the original version (as cited above) until the mid-70's, when it was replaced by a not-so-nice phrase regarding our rival (Dook). Who, by the way, LOST tonight. Which makes four years in a row. That's right. Tyler Hansbrough has NEVER lost to Dook in Cameron Indoor. 

Go Heels!
