OOOOHHHH MY!! Here we go again!

You know I for the most part enjoy college. But one think I must say is I hate how the registration process. I have been here for a year and a half and basically found out that I have taken about a semester worth of classes I didn't need. So here I go again trying to register for nest semester. You know the nrmal hunting down of Advisor, finding out I can't take something because it has other requirements that I did not know about. The prereq. don't bother me its just when NO ONE told me what I needed to take. I really do like my asvisor as a person but I wish they would tell me what I need to take instead of letting me take my on stab out in the dark. I heard a person in one of my classes talking about the trouble they where having ad they said, "I don't see why we need to talk to an advisor before we can register. We would probulary wind up being just as close to being right in what we needed to take anyway." I hate to say this but for the most part I believe right! Of all the Professors I have had I think of only 2 I have been able to walk into there office and fill like I was welcome and not just intrudeing on there time. As you can tell I am not in the best of moods compared to the way I normally feel. It has got to be so bad I accidently snapped at my Mama last night when all she was trying to do was help. I do hate myself when I do that. Well, I must say to be able to vent a little does feel better! Later! ~LH 1 Timothy 4:12~

OOHHHH MY! Here we go again!

I don't belive this! I dont understand how some advisors are just great and others are just awful! I have had the same advisor since my freshman year (basically because I haven't changed, nor plan to, majors). I really do like this man but it still bothers me how I feel like I have wasted half of my college. Classes I was told I needed to take now it turns I didn't need to. It is just so aggervating that I accidently snapped at my Mama, I hate when I do that. Well I need to go! Later ~LH 1 Timothy 4:12~

Evaluations

This blog as been a way for me to express myself in many ways, a chance for me to show my personality in a more personal, "open", way that I may or may not in a more public setting.

On this web-site I have shown you my way of looking at different subjects and also on my own life experiences. This time the substitute teaching subjest moves on:

Last week I was doing some substitute teaching (7th grade) at SMS, and I asked them if they would, when they finished there work would they write me a note---->basically tell me things they would want me to know about 7th grade (since I am going to teach middle school). Some of their responses caught me off guard but others seemed to what I, for the most part, expected. And I must add I am going these notes are written just as they were givin to me. These are the notes the students gave me:
(and I would love to hear some comments (esp. the people who really know me))
  • "Stay nice and as sweet as you are never get mean pass out candy and have lots of fun"
  • "Seventh grade is great it has all sorts of new things to learn. I like seventh grade because I can read as many books all I want. My name is __________. I live in Lancaster, South Carolina"
  • "If I were in Ms. Holleybrook's shoes and I wanted to know about the 7th grade. I would want to know that how many students were in my class. What time we change classes and what time do we go to lunch and recess. That's basically what I need to know about the 7rh grade."
  • "*Be more meaner *Give Detentions when the students are bad"

Until Next Time ~LH 1 Timothy 4:12~

A Letter to the Christians!

Ephesians 4: 29-32
  • "29 Don't use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
  • 30 And do not bring sorrow to God's Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he is the one who has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.
  • 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of malicious behavior.
  • 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you."

I prefer to consider myself a fairly well rounded person, but like all people I have area's in my life I care more about muchless know more about. My Faith is one of them. So for a while I believe that I will type some scripture and then go through a short process of breaking it down in the way I see it. I would add I would love for people to comment on such topics to give me what the verse(s) says to you! (And don't look to much at my spelling LOL)

The book of Ephesians was written by Paul to the church at Ephesus, "Paul an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus". So in making this statement we know the book of Ephesiains is basically a letter of encouragement to believers, and instructions to help us along on the journey to follow Christ.

Now for the passage above:

A Christian's speech should be different. I have often heard the argument about "Who decided what words are and are not 'curse' words?" To this I do not know, but as a society we have dubbed them wrong "offensive". All I can technicallly say is that if Jesus was standing there would you still say it? We should let the words that grace our lips be that of encouragement helping each other, not putting people down, but lifting others up!

The Holy Spirit is the part of God that came into you life the day you accepted Jesus as your Savior. The Holy Spirit, if present, is evident in the way we live our lives (The Fruit of the Spirit will be discussed at a later date). The HS takes the place of our conscience. The best way I know to describe our conscience is to say it is the part of us which is instilled in our inner selves by our parents, as much as our parents/guardians try they are not perfect and couldn't have taught everything we need to know about life. But even more than that I parents are wavering thay aren't always right. But when you become a Christian the Holy Spirit takes that conscience place with a new conscience, one that is incorruptable. The Holy Spirit is incorruptable not the person with which it dwells. The Holy Spirit is the part of a Christian that convicts there heart about a descision in the process of being made! But God is a loving God that forgives so once we have accepted teh Holy Spirit He is always present!

Get rid of all things of the world in your life, continue to strive each day to be more and more like Christ! Continueing the good fight to rid yourself of bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of malicious behavior! Bitterness= holding a grudge, rage= quick to anger, harsh words= tearing down another in anger or just because you can, then slander= lying

In life be kind to each other! The easiest way to say it is "Due unto others as you would have them do unto you!"

These words should not be mistaken for something they are not! So often, in my case anyway, I believe so many people mistake kindness for weakness! Instead I consider kindness strength! Consider Jesus, He could have called Legions of angels to His side to save Him, but He didn't He spread out his arms, died, and rose again on the third day to show us what true love is!

Scooby Doo!

I am definaltely running out of ammo for my blog for my American Literature Class for Dr. R! Since the election is over (I know politicis isn't I just get sick of doing research) I am tired of doing it! So I guess I am just going to lean a little more on my fun side, instead of the business side of things!

Now I must say I really like just playing on Quizilla.com. Just foolin' around in different TV show "quizzes". I absolutely love Scooby-Doo, Care Bears, Masters of the Universe, and My Little Pony Tales (though I cant remember them as well as the others). So like an idiot I decided to just check out the Scooby-Doo questions and I had the worst feeling I already knew what the results would be! I think I am going to wind up with a twitch or something because of this! LOL! Hope you have some fun, having fun with me! ~LH 1 Timothy 4:12~

Velma!
You are VELMA! You are intelligent but fed up with
not receiving the credit you deserve. You made
up a lame pun using your famous phrase and an
outdated song, but you're cool with us anyways.
So go ahead and get jinkie with it.
