Welcome to Fuck Mountain

I'm back!

My computer has been out of commission since Tuesday and my blog readers are really the victims of this tragedy. Well lets see, life has been good. Tomorrow is my Eval. I am almost done with this horrible quarter. I did poorly in class, isolated a lot of friends with my flakyness, and did my job so bad I got fired. I am ready to move on and look forward to a lot of changes in my life in the next few weeks.

Last Thursday at 7pm marked the beginning of our 26 hour pray room. This is where we take shifts in the prayer room, so that we have at least 2 people in the room at all times. Our group on campus is pretty small, so this was a daunting task. I alone had signed up to pray for 8 hours. We transformed my room by taking down all my posters and hiding all my belongs, and replacing them with mood creating devices, like candles and stuff. I was really stressed out at first, We were running late and a lot of other pressures from life were weighing on me. Once we finally get started and everything is going, it was a little awkward at first. I don't think any of us really knew what to expect. Over the next 26 hours I got to experience so much time with God. I was dreading the 8 hour obligation I had agreed to, but I probably spent nearly 17 hours in the prayer room. I just didn't want to leave, I forced myself to go to bed and to class. It wasn't boring or dreadful at all, it was calming and exciting all at the same time. I just felt so at peace with myself and the world around me. I got to experience God through talking, singing, writing, painting, listening, and reading. It was just a wonderful reminder that God is great and I should want to spend time with him always. Even since Friday when we finished I have barely spent time in pray. I really want to set a schedule so that I can hold myself accountable. I want to devout all aspects of who I am to living for God. I want to constantly be excited in his word. I hope that next quarter, with less stress from school, I will be able to live my life more intentionally.

In other news, I am preparing for next quarter! I am job hunting and figuring out my living situation. Nathan moved into my dorm on Saturday. It has been fun. Carley, Nathan, and I watched Arrested Development last night till we all fell asleep. On April 4th we move into our new apartment. We found someone to rent out the 2nd bedroom, her name is Ashley. She seems really nice and I am excited about living with her. I might get a couch. yes!

I am ready for a better, happier, healthier, more proactive life. As much as it sucks to get fired, I think it lead to a lot of distress, so I am excited about new opportunities and new adventures. So you know how it kind of sucks when several people live together, so you are not sure what to call it. Do you say, "I am going over to Nathan's house" or do you say "I am going over to Tasha's house"? We want to avoid this potentially awkward moment at ALL COSTS!! So we decided to name our apartment. So now you can say "I'm going to Fuck Mountain!!" We also are thinking of starting a house blog. So I'll keep you posted on that news. We'll probably have some sort of house warming party.

This is that house in Omaha. I don't think I even know anyone who lives there, but any time I look up stuff about shows or things like that, the Hotel Frank blog comes up.
Some inspiration for Fuck Mountain?

Your apartment would be more badass if it was further from campus, because then if people wanted to beg Charlie for a ride to it they could be all like "FUCK MOUNTAIN! LET'S GO TO FUCK MOUNTAIN CHAAAAARLIE!"

You should have considered this before choosing to live in the Glen.
