I've been a busy lady lately. My past month seems like it's been a week. I'm sure everyone knows the feeling. I am starting to adjust nicely to Crossroads. I love it here and the people are really quite amazing.
I got a job, which is taking up a lot of my time. I feel like my homework is about twice the amount that I had a CLC last year. It's fun though.
My sleeping habits have changed. Last year I'd go to bed around 10:30 11, now I go to bed around 12 or 1. Hehe, I'm good though, coffee keeps me functioning.
My roommates are amazing. I love each and everyone of them :) Liz, Melanie, Julie, Hannah, and Crystal. They are fun girls:)
I was homesick for one day out of the month that I've been away from home. I am actually stunned that the move went over so well for me. The reason I had a bad day is because a teacher in one of my classes quit, so a new teacher was going to take over but he couldn't teach class until later in the day and I didn't want that. I was also stressed about a job, and plus, I was kinda broke. Things are a lot better now. I just wish I would have trusted in God a little more that day.

Taryn, Jeenah, and I. I like this picture!
The big walk.
The Valedictorian and I.
I also got my grades back! I got a 4.0 this semester! :) This was my goal for this semester and I managed to keep it. So my cum g.p.a was 3.88.

God gave me this Bible to show me His unfailing love He has for me.
The sky and clouds remind me of God's love.
The world in general is a reminder of God's love. He made it in six day's. That is pretty amazing.
Just looking at this tree reminds me of God's love. Every little detail God designed.
This beautiful, witty little girl also showed me God's love today. I love her!
To end the afternoon I got to enjoy part of it with a friend at a coffee shop. We read God's word, laughed, and talked about the future(scary, exciting, nervous!). This was another way God showed me His love, through friends.

First, make sure you have all the ingredients for the crust and the filling. For your crust you will need 1 cup of brown sugar, ½ cup of butter, 1 egg, 1 ½ cups of flour, 1 ½ cups of quick oatmeal, ¼ teaspoon of salt, ½ teaspoon of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. For your filling you will need 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 tablespoons of butter, and 1 (6 ounce) package of chocolate chips. You will also need a medium sized bowl, 9 x 13 pan, double boiler, and measurements.
Have your medium sized bowl ready for the crust. Mix in the brown sugar and butter until it gets smooth. Then add in your egg, flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda, and vanilla. Put 2/3 of the crust mix into the pan and press down until even. You will be using the double boiler to melt your sweetened condensed milk, butter, and chocolate chips. It is a utensil consisting of two pots, one that fits partway into the other. The lower pot has water in it to warm or melt a substance in the upper pot.
Have your burner on low heat and make sure to stir continuously; this will keep it from burning on the bottom. If you do not have a double boiler you may use the microwave to melt the ingredients. Make sure to watch it closely so it does not burn.
Once you have the filling melted you can start to put everything together. First you should preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then you can start to pour the filling onto the crust in the 9 x 13 pan. After the filling is in you can take out the remaining 1/3 crust from the fridge and start to make little patties about the size of smaller cookies. When you are done making the patties, you can spread them out over the filling. After that you can put the pan into the oven and let it bake for twenty minutes. When they are done let them cool for 10 minutes before you cut them. For best results cut them into 1 x 1 or 2 x 2 squares.
Your house will smell like a Martha Stewart baking sale, with the aroma of crust baking to the sweet smell of chocolate. Smiles on your guest’s faces will fill your soul with joy.

Beauty is something I have always misunderstood. I always have to remind myself that it isn't by outward appearance. God is just amazing, comparing beauty to a pig's snout. This is the type of beauty I want.
