I've had contacts for the past two weeks. They're nice. The first set that I had didn't really provide clear vision. When I went back in a week to see how things were working out, the doctor switched me to a different brand, same prescription and they're wonderful! However, I did find that I'm allergic to Jake's contact solution. There is almost nothing worse than the few moments after you put something you're allergic to in your eye.

So my bilogical guy sent Jake and I a drawing, maybe I can see about getting pctures of some of his stuff on near the beginning of the year - end of January, early February at the latest - and with it he sent a tape that he wanted Jake to record some music on. He had built a Native American Flute and wanted to learn to play a tune by listening to it because he can't read music. WE HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND A TAPE PLAYER ANYWHERE!!! So I haven't written him anything for this whole year. I feel terrible about it. I just thought I'd write when we got the tape ready to go, but we haven't...and it's been so long, and I know none of that matters I've just been worrying about it a little.

At school I'm starting/hoping to start a group called OCUWrites - like bringing together an on campus writing community. I sent out the first round of advertisment/invitations on facebook today. I think this can really be something special. If you're reading this and you go to OCU, I'd love for you to come be a part of it (Oct. 26 from 5:30-7:30 in Walker Center 143)...and if you just happen to be in Oklahoma then, stop by ;).

I'm also taking a class, Literature for Adolescents, through independent study. I feel really weird about it because there's an actual class of it going on this semester, it just conflicted with my Spanish class. It's weird because usually in independent study you just work at your own pace. This time I'm working at the pace of a class I never go to/never am in on any of the discussion. I know that I'll get everything done and I'm learning a lot, I just feel like I'm letting my professor down by not exactly right there with the class.

I didn't mean to end on such a downer...OH! I don't have to! I'm picking my parents up from the airport tomorrow!!!!! I'm so excited. It's the first time my dad has been here since I've been here. I never realize how much I miss having my family around until I know they are actually going to be here. Don't get me wrong, I have family enough here with all of Jake's family, and really, it's ALL of Jake's family - It's just really nice to see other familiar faces once in a while.
