I banned myself from facebook to study for midterms. It is amazing how much work I have done in just the last day that I have not allowed myself to go to facebook.
So far I have:
* written four cards,
* did the crossword puzzle,
* journalled twice,
* did homework for next week,
* read two and a half chapters of a book (not for school),
* did extra work on our project report,
* and I studied for the FE exam.

And that is just the first 24 hours of being banned from facebook. I am trying to go an entire week. I wonder what else I will add to that list? This should be fun. I like getting things accomplished.

Tonight I decided that I like lentil stew (made by Joe). He makes the chili too. They are both good, especially when we have Trader Joe's cornbread! I also am becoming a huge fan or Good Friends Kashi cerael mixed with Trader Joe's Vanillia Almond Clusters. I am becoming my Dad and mixing ceraels. The Kashi would be to branish for me without the clusters. heh. Jared told me that I should always eat breakfast. So I eat a banana and a bowl of cerael most mornings before I rush out the door. I love having 10 and 11 o'clock classes. It is the best. I get up between 6:30 and 7:00 and have the whole morning to do whatever I want. It is so great.

And I am a HUGE fan of the elliptical machine at the gym ever since I figure out how to read and workout. It is like the best thing since sliced bread. And finally, we sang this song at RUF last night and I remembered how much I loved it and the Newsboys. :)

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Brought with the precious blood of Christ

Aww, I love that song too. I haven't heard it in a while.
Read on the elliptical-blech! I would be "car sick".
I was asking my parents the other day what they ate for breakfast as kids-they couldn't remember. I still eat the same thing-cold cereal and milk. But now I've gone from Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch and regular milk to Kashi Heart to Heart and soy milk:-)

I didn't type the song in. I copied it from some website. I am sorry. I thought they would know better. I'll go fix it now.

Great idea to leave the facebook world during mid-terms. One of your Maryland friends made me grin as she plans to leave wall posts all week. Sounds like you are getting a lot done. Congratulations! Good luck next week.

Did she? I can guess who that is... funny though, I guess she gave up since I have only received one notification from facebook that she has written on my wall. :D ha.

I love my elliptical machine that I got in December! I can now run in the comfort of my own home and enjoy listening to the White Horse Inn. Or finishing up a movie that I fell asleep watching the night before with my hubby :)
