So it is officially spring now and I could not be happier... I really do not like the cold weather! Even though it's still chilly in the morning the afternoons are just beautiful! I'm very excited for summer to be here. I put away all my sweaters and brought out my tank tops the other day. The flowers everywhere are blooming. I picked a daffodil in Falls Park today even though I don't think you're allowed to do that! Oh well!
Last week was spring break and I spent the week in Pawleys Island with my dearest Prissy! I was wonderful to not have to worry about school or really anything for a little while. We went out dancing three nights which is by far Prissy and my most favorite thing to do! One night we saw Vanilla Ice perform which was one of the highlights for me since I know every word to Ice Ice Baby. HA, feel free to laugh at me! The weather didn't cooperate as much as we would have like but we got in a few good days at the beach. On Thursday, Prissy, Prissy's madre, and I walked to the point of PI during low tide and took a bunch of pictures. (There's a link at the end of this blog to my photo page. I've decided to start putting pictures up there also since not everyone can see them on Facebook.) We took a trip to Summerville and visited with the family there. We did a little bit of shopping but since both of us are pretty broke we didn't get much. Overall, it was the best spring break ever and I'm very sad it's over.
This week it has been very difficult to get back into schoolwork so really I haven't done anything. I spent almost all day yesterday studying for my Spanish test this morning, got to class and the teacher said she was going to move it to Tuesday. I was not happy to say the least. Only four weeks left till exams and I'm starting to get nervous. I don't know why but I always get extremely stress during exams and it's starting early this semester.
The highlight of this week has been this morning when I met George Clooney in Greenville. I went with some of my friends to see him and Renee Zellweger promote their new movie. I got his autograph and a bunch of pictures. He is extremely nice and talked to me and Kara about what a pretty day it was :) He is probably one of my favorite actors and I was so excited to see him in person. (Also check the pictures link for pics of Mr. Clooney.)
I'm off to study Anatomy for my exam tomorrow morning. Here is the link for my pictures: http://community.webshots.com/user/mereinsc

“Then I was beside Him, a master craftsman; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him” Proverbs 8:30
I hope your friends are many, and your laughter’s always loud. Will HogeThat knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying.
“Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.” Proverbs 31:30-31
“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27
Girl, savor what you know and spit it back as best you know how. Macnolia
"To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." --Ralph Waldo Emerson"Reality, in fact, is always something you couldn't have guessed. That's one of the reasons I believe Christianity. It's a religion you couldn't have guessed." ~ C.S. Lewis, The Case for Christianity
"Celebrate we will. For life is short, but sweet." DMB
"Love is patient, love is kind; it does envy, it does not boast; it is not proud. It is not proud, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres... Love Never Fails." -1 Corinthians 13:4-8
“Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” Matthew 11: 28-30
Love all. Trust few. Do wrong to no one. Shakespeare
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.

"Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
Time you enjoy wasting was not wasted. ~ John Lennon

"May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars." ~Blow
"As we grow up we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down probably will. You'll have your heart broken and you'll break others hearts. You'll blame a new love for things an old love did. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll cry because time is flying by and you'll eventually lose some one you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely and love like you've never been hurt because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back." Grey's Anatomy
"But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely, because almost everyone has that smallest bit of faith and hope that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true. At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different than your dream. The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after -- just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in awhile, people may even take your breath away." Grey'sI want to live inside this moment
And just be effortlessly
"Forget regret or life is yours to miss!" RENT
"Not My will but Yours be done" Luke 22:42
I'm gonna stop looking back and start moving on
Learn how to face my fears
Love with all of my heart, make my mark
I wanna leave something here
Go out on a ledge, without any net
That's what I'm gonna be about
Yeah, I wanna be running
When the sand runs out
Do not go where the path may lead, instead go where there is no path and leave a trail. Ralph Waldo Emerson
And I have lots and lots more but you have probably already given up reading all of these so I'm going to write my spanish paper now! :)

I'm still now sure about my summer plans now but after a very impactful sermon this morning I've decided to pray about it a lot. (Genesis 12: 1-5)
Only two weeks of classes left before Spring Break!! I'm going to be going to stay with my best friend, Prissy, at her house in Myrtle Beach. I don't know what I would do without her, she has been the best person for me to meet here at school. We are soulmates :) She has kept me sane though the last couple weeks of my freak out and I appreciate it more than anything!!
Well, that's all for now. We are off to the baseball game!!! Yay, I'm so glad baseball season is here and that the weather, although not warm yet, is not freezing anymore!! Go Tigers beat USC!!!!!!!!!!!
