Alright, I have to make an apology, which is usually something I try to avoid. I am afraid that I won't have time to work in my blog, so don't expect anything new to show up once a week. Maybe over holidays and weekends I'll do a few things, but even then it could take 2 weekends to get a story up.

D-Day plus 2

Well, it is my first full day in Nipawin and it has been fairly good. I slept well last night, but when I woke up there was about 100 flies buzzing around in my room. Oh well, they'll all die pretty soon, hahaha.
My roomates name is Matt for Port St. John, British Columbia. This is his first year at Nipawin, so we both are winging it right now.
As I type this out I am in "laptop central", which is the lounge underneath the dining hall. I see 6 more laptops besides mine in this area, which is alot more than I thought there would ever be. I guess people are more modern than I figured.
When I got here yesterday I quickly unpacked my car with Rachel's help. Ya, Rachel came with a girl named Donna and her family. Surprised me, I would have hugged her too but she called me names. We ate, played games and got introduced to the staff and students here.
I plan to take pictures of some of the people that I met so far but haven't got around to it so far. Once I get to the dorm again I'll see if people will allow me to snap a photo or two cuz I hate to resort to threats and stuff.
There is only one thing wrong with life so far at Nipawin: I might have got pinkeye from a another student. Not that my eye is pink and puffy yet, but it is ichy and I was hanging around with him yesterday. If I do get it it will be simple enough to treat, and no I won't hate Andrew if it did transfer to me. Oh by the way Andrew is the kid that has pinkeye, he is a cool guy. That and he's a child of one of the teachers so I better not get him mad or his dad might fail me.
Well, that's about all with me so far, I mean I have a life and can't spend it in front of a computer all day, so I guess I'll leave for right now.

5 days

Well, it is only 5 days until I leave to go to Nipawin Bible College. I have started to go through some school supplies and other essentials, mainly things like bathroom stuff (toothbrush, Q-Tips, books).
I'm sure the next 8 months at NBC will challenge me alot, but all for the better. And it's not like I don't know anyone, I know Brad pretty well and I sorta know a few of the other guys. Actually one of them is friends with my brother, so it's not like I'm going to a strange place. I only know one girl there, and by knowing her I mean barely know her. But this slight knowledge is helpful, it will make me more comfortable.
What will I do in my spare time? Probably work on a homework, play some sports and lay around listening to music. Of course this will all change because life is never what you expect it to be.
However, I do have plans for the year that I will carry out. For one, I will get my truck fixed up, sell my car, take the truck into the bush and tag out in deer season.
I really have nothing much to write about, nothing interesting happening right now.
