Reading and the ACT

I'm excited about this weekend and also dreading it. I can not wait for the banquet on Friday! It shall be lovely I'm sure :)

But, the next morning I have to take the ACT. I am not looking forward to that at all. I really dislike tests. Especially tests like this one. I know it's just a test and, for this year, my score doesn't really even matter. However, I think what I dread the most is actually being nervous. Nervousness seems almost inevitable. Anyways, I'm praying that some how God will give me amazing peace and that I won't be nervous at all. I know several of my friends are taking it too. I'll be praying for you all!

Thanks to everyone who gave me book suggestions. I have pick several that I would like to read. Right now, I started on Humility by CJ Mahaney. I'm also going to try and read Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges, Screwtape Letters by CS Lewis, Stepping Heavenward and Crazy Love. I also would like to read some John Piper books. Oh, and the Young Woman after God's Own Heart sounds awesome too. Oh, and I'm going to reread Do Hard Things. I hope I can read them all! We'll see how far I get.

I'm sorry about all my boring updates. Livy says I need to be more random. I guess I'll work on it, lol. Maybe I'll post some more pictures soon =)

Hey, one more thing. Does anyone remember when green ketchup used to be the coolest thing ever? lol. I was just thinking about that.

Yes, I told her to make a post about...well, I won't say just so it'll at least appear random=P Idk when green ketchup came out, but I always remembered the purple ketchup too! I honestly don't know why they made that up though...kinda gross actually, haha!

The ACT was . . . boring. We can compare experiences tomorrow, Emily. ;-)

I have never heard of any other ketchup than red ketchup - maybe it was a Southern thing? *shrug*

Oh, I forgot to post this one on Rebelutionaries... God Called A Girl (Shannon Kubiak) is a really great book. Be sure to add it to your list :-).

strangely I never get nervous at all about that kind of thing...I guess I just don't care enough. Which is kinda sad I guess. Although the past two times I've taken the test it hasn't mattered. Maybe I'll care more when it does.

haha I think I do remember green ketchup..
