You know, peeps, a while ago I asked if anyone had any bizarre, quirky things he/she did. Only the lovely Mrs. Hemmer responded. Anyone else?

Wishes: >please let me not be the only strange one ... PLEASE let me not be the only strange one ... <

Jesus, let me not so quickly forget Your blessings. Love You.

... I pierced my ears. I am nearly 24 years old, and I haven't sat in that piercing stool for almost a decade, but instead of crying and wimping out (as I did at 14), I just ALMOST cried but DIDN'T wimp out, and now I have one lovely hole in each lobe. Thank you, thank you. >Curtsies<

"But jackie lea!" you may say, "how on earth did you have such COURAGE to face the gun, especially after LOOKING at the spear-shaped pointy ends of the studs?"

Well, well, dear friends. Ms. Erica Murriel Davis was at my side, and she held my hand. Thank you, dear eir, so trusty, so true!

So, please, mark today, July 22nd, as MONUMENTAL: jackie lea finally let the needle through the lobe. No tears were shed (but close!), and I did not hyperventilate (although I got lightheaded and was breathing VERY deeply). :-)

A bit stressed

AUUUUUUUUUUUGH!!! Posted by Picasa

Hi friends! Sooooo much going on.

We're getting our house, for those of you who haven't heard. So, trying to figure out all the details of that. Went to/worked Sonshine and got about 700 names (compared to about 40-50 from last summer), so you could say it was a worthwhile weekend.

HOT. It was ragingly hot. Sweltering, one might say. And then Matt from Relient K was there, so that made it even hotter. hee hee. Oh Matt ... and Tyler Burkum ... and Phil Joel ... you cutesy cute guitarists.

Got to see Dro, Kallie, Sara, Gimp, Chris, Bunts, Brittany, Vink, Al-Gal, Vinny, and many more. I wish I could spent MORE time with you, peeps. Dro, girl, you are so terrif. Love all the Hawk Nelson motions!

I got some groceries tonight, mostly junkfood. I need to clean my room, correct my financial situation, write letters and emails, cool down, read. Tomorrow I go to work (I PRAISE YOU, JESUS, FOR GIVING ME A JOB THAT I DON'T NEED TO DREAD!), and we're having a brainstorming session for the first two days of this week; then Wed, we're having a picnic over at Bethel U with them. Awww, how sweet. I have SO MUCH to get done, but methinks I won't really get down to it til Thurs. I will survive. I think.

Ok, that was probably super boring, huh? I love you guys, and I MISS you! Hey eir, maybe we'll talk more when you're back in Chicago, lovey. ;-) Let's get together soonish, dearheart. Oh yes, Wednesday. I'll email you back or call ya, honeybun.

I think I'm going to go to bed early ...

It's kind of exciting actually. I don't think I'll be able to fall asleep right away. Lately, I've been going to bed moreso around 1 am, but I might actually close my eyes before midnight! Wow.

I'm nervous for this work week. Why??? I know I've got a TON to do tomorrow; I think my problem is that last week, being sick, I wasn't very motivated. I hate feeling that way. Jesus, make me productive and lively this week!

And Thurs-Fri-Sat ... Sonshine with my roomies!

I wonder if Dro will introduce me to her husband Matt Thiessen ...

I'm hoping to post pictures of this place tomorrow ...

But for now, let me just say that we need 2-3 Christian girls to rent this house on Cty Rd E with us. It is AMAZING and HUGE. You would just FREAK OUT if you saw this livingroom. It looks like a LODGE. If you need a place or KNOW someone who does, let me know how to contact you!
