Five.5 Painful Hours

No offense to the Poudre School District, but their meetings are not the most riveting experience a college student will ever have. Granted, there were a few outbursts, praises and interesting presentations, but things were repeated and repeated and repeated. And it was really hot.

I’m done complaining, as I’ve certainly done my share today. Sorry ’bout that.

Anyway, I had a midnight deadline for this story, so I came back and typed up my notes before writing a two.5-page article. Honestly, it is the best piece I’ve written for the class and the most-deserving of a good grade. I actually put effort into this piece, even though it didn’t have any “heart” to it. I haven’t been pleased with anything I’ve written so far this semester, so to have written something that I actually think as “good” is a big thing for me.

Just watch… I’ll probably fail the assignment or something. Irony works like that. Oh well.

When I got back from the meeting, I was over on the south side because the Broncos/Chiefs game was on and I wanted to see what was left of the game. I was just really irritated due to stress… and then, all of a sudden, I let myself think and I almost crumbled because I realized just how much I miss my brother.

The past four years, John and I have grown increasingly closer. Even when I’ve been in the Fort for school, it was rare that I went more than two or three weeks without seeing him and we normally talked once or twice a week.

Since he’s been in California for school, though, we keep playing phone tag and my schedule’s hectic and his is busy. I don’t know when the last time I really talked to him was. It’s been three weeks since I saw him last (I was home for Labor Day) and I won’t get to see him until Thanksgiving.

I miss him so much and it doesn’t make it any easier to know that he’s dealing with college stuff like roommate issues and focusing and finding quiet. I feel so disconnected and it bites.

God has both of us where we are for a reason. He has this separation time for a purpose. I just miss my little brother.

Hopefully, I will get the chance to call him tomorrow. I think he’s got free time in the afternoon when I do (granted, I’m done at 11:30am, so that’s not hard).

My roomie is having surgery tomorrow and, to be honest, it’s been kind of creepy because she’s been writing letters to everyone and putting together a will and such. I trust that she’ll be fine, but it still weirds me out.

Lots of prayer tomorrow, I guess. It’s a good thing I like talking to Jesus.

Bedtime now. I’m really beat.

Tomorrow is a new day… Praise the Lord!
