OK, so here's an update on what's going down. My schedule for next quarter is improved.

I might be taking 23 credits, but 17 if I don't get into Oceanography. The good new is, I'm now 7th on the waiting list, and the teacher figures he can give me the blue card [needed to register from the waiting list] if I come to the first day of class and am dedicated and all that jazz. Well, that's me, so it's pretty much a go.

Also, this is completely off topic, just to warn you, you NEED to read this book called "The Shack." It's by William Young, and it pretty much transformed my life and how I think. I won't give away the plot, but basically this guy spends a weekend at God's house. Seriously. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost live at this house, and the guy spends a weekend with the 3 of them and has these conversations that, just by themselves are incredible and life-changing, but together rock your world upside down, inside out, and never leave it the same.

Trust me. Read this book. I still have my favorite part on the side of my computer so that I can read it every day, several times a day. It took me SO long to get this, and even now I marvel. It goes "...your choices are not stronger than my purposes, and I will use every choice for the ultimate good and the most loving outcome." -Papa. Oh my goodness, just read it! That's all I have to say right now, but let me know what you think of the book!

**Update: there have been many conversations regarding the theology of this book, and while I know it is not 100% Scriptural, I think that there are some parts of the story that can bring freedom to believers. However, I would not recommend this book to not-yet or new-believers; discernment and knowledge of the Word is crucial.**
