Worst. Assignment. Ever.

It happens every quarter. I sit in front of some assignment and think "I have never wanted to not do something as much as I don't want to do this." Now it's two papers due next Tuesday. I can't get to appropriate work on them. I simply cannot.

And I Called It

Going to a spiritually founded colleges means all sorts of silly rules and trends of life that would seem strange to average students. Today I am talking about "Quiet Time" the 10-10:30 AM block of time where everything shuts down, no classes are held, and everyone is expected to be quiet and pray for the community.

It's a fantastic idea. Think of the peace and power that could come with having any community be quiet and pray for half an hour collectively. Of course, it doesn't actually happen for most people. I would venture to say third of people use it daily. I myself have a random schedule of reading spiritual literature, journaling, Facebooking, cuddling, doing laundry, prank calling my sister etc. etc.

Anyway, the other day I really meant to do it. I just wanted to check my email. And then I saw a link on some add to the Ben and Jerrys website. And there was a contest! To create an ice cream! Complete with little cartoon cows mixing the ingredients! And then I couldn't stop myself.

I mixed and matched all different add-ins and flavors and titles and swirls. And then I looked at the clock and I had two minutes until i was supposed to be at work. I spent 40 MINUTES MAKING UP AN ICE CREAM FLAVOR. And you know what? It wasn't even that good.

It was cake batter and blueberry ice cream with chocolate chunks and a coconut swirl. And I called it Birthday Island.
