Please pray...

...for one of my professors who has to have surgery..yet again and for my friend's family(I won't go into details on this one)

Good song...

Take the wave now and know that you're free
Turn your back on the land, face the sea
Face the wind now, so wild and so strong
When you think of me, wave to me and send me song

Don't look back when you reach the new shore
Don't forget what you're leaving me for
Don't forget when you're missing me so
Love must never hold, never hold tight, but let go

Oh, the nights will be long when I'm not in your arms
But I'll be in this song that you sing to me
Across the sea, somehow, someday
You will be far away, so far from me
And maybe one day I will follow you in all you do
'Til then, send me a song

When the sun sets the water on fire
When the wind swells the sails of your hire
Let the call of the bird on the wind
Calm your sadness and loneliness
And then start to sing to me
I will sing to you
If you promise to send me a song

I walk by the shore and I hear
Hear your song come so faint and so clear
And I catch it, a breath on the wind
And I smile and I sing you a song
I will send you a song
I will sing you a song
I will sing to you
If you promise to send me a song

Once again...

Twas the night before finals,

and all through the college,

The students were praying for last minute knowledge.

Most were quite sleepy,

but none touched their beds,

While visions of essays danced in their heads.

Out in the lobby,

a few were still drinking,

And hoping that pop*

would loosen their thinking.

In my own dorm room,

I had been pacing,

And dreading exams

I soon would be facing.

My roommate was speechless,

her nose in her books,

And my comments to her

drew unfriendly looks.

I drained all the coffee,

and brewed a new pot,

No longer caring

that my nerves were shot.

I stared at my notes,

but my thoughts were all muddy,

My eyes went a blur,

I just couldn't study.

"Some pizza might help,"

I said with a shiver,

But each place I called

refused to deliver.

I'd nearly concluded that life was too cruel,

With futures depending on grades had in school.

When all of a sudden,

our door opened wide,

And Patron Saint Put-It-Off ambled inside.

His spirit was careless,

his manner was mellow,

When all of a sudden,

he started to bellow:

"On Cliff Notes!

On Crib Notes!

On last year's exams!

On Wingit and Slingit,

and last minute crams!"

His message delivered,

he vanished from sight,

But we heard him laughing outside in the night.

"Your teachers have pegged you,

so just do your best.

Happy Finals to all,

and to all, a Good Test!"


I'm not sure what time I actually fell asleep but my roommate came in from studying around 2am. For some reason when she came in I thought my alarm had gone off so I got out of bed and walked over to my closet to find clothes to wear.
roomie: Amanda, what are you doing?
me: I'm getting ready for my exam
(in a voice that would involve me saying "duh!" at the end of the sentence.)
roomie: it's 2 in the morning
me: i know! (getting annoyed, but obviously I didnt know)
roomie: what? are you getting up to study or something?
me: no, i just have to pick clothes out
(at this point I was wondering why she was so interested in what I was doing)
roomie: Amanda, are you sleeping?
me: no! (even more annoyed)

Then I realized how dark it was and decided to get back in bed. As soon as I got in bed I realized what was going on but before I could tell me roomie that I was sleep walking before but was awake now, I fell asleep.
