but we urge you, brethren...that you also
aspire to lead a quite life, to mind your own
business, and to work with your own hands, as
we commanded you, that you may walk
properly toward those who are outside, and
that you lack nothing (1 thessalonians 4:10-12)

do i have to? really? because even when i have a three point eleven grade point average (which is pretty awesome for me, especially considering this was during the year of and the year following my brother's death...but that's not an overall thing...overall's like a two point thirty-two), i see a girl who changes her mind as frequently as she changes the rolls on the toilet paper dispenser.

i've to take a copy (hopefully an unofficial one) of my transcript of my studies of english from the university of texas (hiss) at san antonio.

hey, if a&m had a campus in s.a. i would've gone there instead.

i need this to show the folks at sam that i'm not as stupid as i seem.

of course, there are a lot of withdrawn classes on this transcript, because i like to bite off more than i can chew.

i'd forgotten that for a time i'd declared architecture as a major.

this was during the fall semester the year of bubby's death. this was me grasping at straws for a purpose. i took some quizzie that said i should be an architect. and i do love architecture.

the thing is, the woman from sam who advised me last week on what i'd need to do to obtain certification in order to teach, she'd commented on my choice of majors while at sam, and there were several.

i wish i could clean the thing up a little.

i wish i looked better on paper.

i wish i looked better in person.

i wish wishing worked.

this week's wisdom

February 7, 2010

he gives power to the weak
and those who have no might he increases strength
even the youths shall faint and be weary
and the young men shall utterly fall
but those who wait on the lord
shall renew their strength
they shall mount up on wings like eagles
they shall run and not be weary
they shall walk and not faint (isaiah 40:29-31).

and the previous weeks'

the lord is near to those who have a broken heart
and saves those who have a contrite spirit

many are the afflictions of the righteous
but the lord delivers him out of them all (psalm 34:18-19).

therefore do not cast away your confidence
which has great reward. for you have need of
endurance, so that after you have done the will
of god, you may receive the promise:

for yet after a little while,
and he who is coming will come and will not tarry
now the just shall live by faith
but if anyone draws back
my soul has no pleasure in him (hebrews 10:35-38).
