More General Updates

I have now officially read all of the Chronicles of Narnia. I highly recommend them if you need something to read and don't mind Christian beliefs being placed in books. Now that I have finished them, I will probably try to move on to The Stand by Stephen King, but that will have to wait for a few days. After all, I have a major English presentation to prepare for as well as an upcoming Physics test that I am not ready to take. Sometimes I wonder what possessed me to decide to be an engineering major, and sometimes I can't think of doing anything else. Although, I have been told by someone that I would make a good English major. I can't even imagine doing that. At the moment, I do not want to become a teacher.

The Themelios meeting went well. Themelios is a greek word that means "foundation," if you were curious. It looks like I will be in a group with Amy. Amy is another student who is in the honors program here at LeTourneau. She is intelligent, funny, and outgoing, which makes her a perfect person to be a Peer Advisor. I don't think that I could have been assigned to work with a better PA. Unfortunately, she has decided to not apply to be the PA for the honors students. I really don't care that much about whether or not I am with the honors group during orientation, but I think that Amy would have been a great person to lead one of their groups.

Unfortunately, I am also becoming accustomed to being the last person on my floor left awake. It does get annoying sometimes. Especially when I am tired of doing something in front of my computer, but can't really do anything other than go to the lounge and read. I guess that problem would be solved if I would just go to sleep earlier, but I think that I will survive. Tomorrow, however, I will be doing a large amount of work, so I probably should go to sleep. Stupid semi-insomnia. I suppose the caffeine doesn't really help much either, but bottled water is too expensive and I don't really like how the water tastes at this university. I'm sure that there are other alternatives, but I don't like milk and most juice just doesn't taste good enough. I guess that probably sounds silly, but I am very picky about what I put into my body. And even more so when there are several different options.
