thoughts to think about

I love quotes. it is really a problem. I have a scrolling quote bar at the top of my internet browser. So here is one of my favorite quotes. (I am also borderline obsessed with C.S. Lewis, i might have to give you more than one quote).

“Perfect love, we know, casteth out fear. But so do several other things – ignorance, alcohol, passion, presumption and stupidity. it is very desirable that we should all advance to that perfection of love in which we shall fear no longer, but it is very undesirable, until we have reached that stage, that we should allow any inferior agent to cast out out fear.” ~ C.S. Lewis, The World’s Last Night

“For every attempt to see the shape of eternity except through the lens of Time destroys your knowledge of Freedom.” ~ C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce.

I am not allowed to go running with Cristina anymore, since after we run I have a hard time walking. And walking is very important these days.

Mr. Pibb

I think pibb extra is a disgrace. I loved Mr. Pibb, and saw no reason why the name or the drink needed to be changed. not that I don’t drink pibb extra, but I boycotted for about a year after they changed it. Cristina and Elizabeth and I are on the fifth floor of the main library, pretending to be undergrads. I love this library, it has lots of books, and not too many people. I am very behind on my school work and can’t get motivated. The weather is too wonderful. Cristina and i went for a run yesterday, and we decided that since we were both out of shape we should take it easy and not run too fast or too long. so we ran for about 25 minutes, and then looked at the map of the botanical gardens to see how far we had gone, and it looked like we had run about 2.2 miles, which was pretty slow for us, and I thought it was probably a good thing we hadn’t run too far. But then we looked at the map again and realized that we left out part of our run and had really run 3 miles. this wasn’t such a great thing, because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to walk today. Actually, I feel okay today, but I know tomorrow it is going to hit me pretty hard. I have two new favorite people, (they aren’t actually new people, and I have always liked them, but I have recently decided that they are favorites). Allison and Christy, can we hang out? Can I adopt ya’ll, or do ya’ll want to adopt me? either way, we should work something out, because ya’ll are awesome. And I want to specify that ya’ll are awesome individually, not just as a pair. In other news, my two friends in Aspen, Christie (different from Christy), and Jamie are anticipating my arrival. I talked to them yesterday and they were taking beer up to the top of the mountain and then planning on skiing down. Last time they attempted this intelligent plan, Christie had to be skied down by her Norweigen friend, and Jamie had to have ski patrol ski her down. I don’t think I will be available to participate in similar activities, due to the fact that I’m not that confident in my skiing abilities and I anticipate serious problems with the altitude (I get dehydrated and tired). But they sound like a lot of fun. I can’t wait to see the mountains. I love the mountains. they make me so happy, I can’t even express my attachment. And I haven’t been skiing in two years, so this is also exciting. Plus Christie says that we are going to have tons of fun at the bars in Aspen so to bring cute clothes. Hmmmmm. It is hard to think about when it is 70 degrees here. Okay, I am going to go read contracts. if I don’t see youregularly, I miss you, and I love you all.

a box of stuff that’ll go crazy when spring comes, but it’s pretty manageable until then ~ B. Andreas (I’m getting close to going crazy, spring is getting close)
