Ok, Ok, so CCBC doesn't have a campus in Ohio....

But! This is where school happens. :)

My own little nook to study away the winter. 

I love. love. love. my desk. It was an antique show find from the spring. It used to be a gun-chest,  and before that I believe it was a safari desk. It folds up into a chest and has handles so you can carry it. My husband attached the legs, and voila, instant desk. I pulled all the nasty green carpet off and gave it a fresh coat of paint. Then I attached the cork material to the lid, so now it shows off some of the things that inspire me and warm my heart. 

I am so blessed to get to fill my days with the Word of God. The best way I could think to spend my winter, and my life.

I'm such a nerd.

Confession: I may have been battling some minor depression due to lack of stimulation for my intelligence. Yesterday when things didn't happen with my school I became super sad and brooding. That is how much I enjoy school and learning.

Alas! Today I successfully accessed all my classes, created a calendar with due dates for everything and formulated a game-plan for completion. Then, I began my first Biblical Counseling class and submitted my first week of notes. I'm already dreaming of hours spent at the library and ordering my Commentary. Bahaha. And long walks on the beach walking hand-in-hand with Chuck tracks...... er, just kidding about that last part. (You fellow CCBC'ers know what I'm talking about. )

But seriously, I feel like a successful human being today. Not that my worth is in what I do, but I've just been doing a whole lot of things that were unintelligent. I mean, I haven't learned all that much from deep-cleaning the house... except that I despise dusting. It's not exactly stimulating work, and I'd like to use my brain-cells once in a while.

I'm about to make my way to the mailbox to see if my books (or anything else interesting) has been deposited today. There's nothing like a bit of good news. :)

Happy December first everyone!

It appropriately was the first snow!

It was also supposed to be my first day of classes online, but something seems to be amiss. I currently am wracking my brain trying to figure out how to actually listen to the lectures, let alone find a syllabus! Not to mention my books haven't arrived in the mail yet. Weird. Nevertheless, I am still anticipating the moment I actually can begin. Until then, I will have to find things to keep myself busy. sigh.

Ps: Did you ever notice how weird the word first looks when it's written? It looks just wrong, but the little red squiggles haven't shown up, so I know it's right. Thank you, mysterious squiggles.
