Jessica: New Month, New Updates...

sorry i haven't updated lately, weird times.
i haven't accomplished anything new yet, but there are some possible things to come...

i haven't drank any soda since January 1, just like i've been planning.
i really think i could go the entire 1001 days, even though its hard to just not give in.
i'm loving tea and orange juice though...

i may be visiting a lot of new cities this year, which include Fargo, ND...Minneapolis, MN...Portland, OR...and after that, who knows?

i'm not reading out of my daily Psalms devotional, but i am reading from my Bible, just whatever speaks to me. i admit i haven't been doing this every day, if anything i've just been starting this in the past week, but i'm loving it so far and everything i'm reading is inspiring.

i'm praying a lot more, if anything just for peace and strength to accompany hour by hour.

that's about it so far...

Charissa: Happy February

Well, yesterday was January 31st and I thusly squeezed in my one church day for the month! I really want to go more, but this quarter is killing me. I have class 6 hours a day Monday-Friday, and Rehearsal 3-5 hours a day/night Sunday-Friday. My only day off is Saturday and I use it to attempt sleep and homework.

I'm proud of myself for sticking to my fitness goals, eating goals [I've slipped up a few times with dessert but everyone's gotta live sometime, am I right?], being happier, and getting into a mianstage musical.

I have not been good with purposefully praying every morning. I talk to God here and there all day long but I think I need to very purposefully devote at least ten minutes of everyday to him, whether that be through memorizing verses, journaling a prayer to him, verbally praying, or reading my Bible. God is the biggest part of me, Christ is my biggest blessing, and the Trinity is my driving force so I must indulge in this relationship. On that note I don't like the church I've been forcing myself to attend, so hopefully I'll be able to find something better within a mile so I can walk.

On the agenda for February: BIRTHDAY! Woohoo! Also, Sweet Charity opens in less than four weeks! OMG!!!!!! Plus mid-terms this week, many papers, many projects, etc.

Here's to a busy life full of joy, passion, and a nice cherry of stress on top.
