Extra Long for Labor Day.

My friends and I know how to make the most of three-day weekends.

After painting our nails and fixing our hair, we went out on the town. It was unrelentingly hot and humid so after visiting the Labor Day flea market and the library, we walked over to the Stevens Student Center (SSC) to get some coffee from Rinnova.

Mia got the Frozen Chocolate Chunk, Anh Thu got the Frozen Mocha Hazelnut, Bethany got the Wildberry Smoothie, and I got my favorite, the Frozen Zebra Mocha.

Our attempt to watch Hitch on Anh Thu's pink laptop failed because there was music playing loudly in another room down the hallway and a number of people were sitting around chatting.

So we stopped the movie and climbed the stairs to go to Chuck's for dinner. Nothing looked very appetizing to me besides granola and yogurt and I wasn't very hungry, so that's what I decided to fill my stomach up with.

A glass of soy milk completed my meal. Not very nutritious, but eh, it's cafeteria food.


Around 12:30 AM I received a text from Bethany asking me to join her, Caleb and Mia to see an amazing display of lightning and thunder. That sounded pretty exciting so I hurriedly grabbed some essentials before running down the hallway out to the main entrance of my dorm.

I was amazed by the awesome display of lightning we watched from the fields surrounding the university. It reminded me how awesome God is!

Praise the LORD from the earth,
you creatures of the ocean depths,
fire and hail, snow and clouds,
wind and weather that obey him,
mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,
wild animals and all livestock,
small scurrying animals and birds,
kings of the earth and all people,
rulers and judges of the earth,
young men and young women,
old men and children.
-Psalm 148:7-12

The same God who created the tiniest, most intricate parts of our bodies and knit us together in our mothers' wombs also created the powerful lightning and thunder and everything obeys him. How great is our God!

Tomorrow's plans are to go to Korean Grace Church, eat Korean food, go shopping, have a photo session with a couple of friends, and get some homework done and Monday's plans aren't even determined yet. I'm hoping that Sunday will be a productive, exciting day!

What's your ideal way to spend a three-day weekend?

I almost forgot to mention that I've entered two photos in a contest over at Brickfish. If you're willing to view and vote for either of my photos, please go here and here. Thank you for your help!

Love the lightning shot! I watched that as well and was tempted to try to capture it. :)

Enjoyed reading your post! I have one question, did you create the heart shape in your glass of milk, or did that just happen accidently?!
