Sooooooo I was driving along... and THEN (:

I really wasn't going to post today, because life has been rather depressing lately... However. To save myself from a hooded, black eyeshadowed slump of emo-ness in all its scariness, I figured it would be a good idea to "let out allllllll of these feelings of disapointment and grief" to you all. Haha, just teasinggg. =) I could have just waited until life was back to normal, but then I would get it later from individuals who feel it necessary to know the gory details of my troubles. Ahem.
Anywaysss, =]. Sooooooo, I was just driving along... and then around a corner... and well... didn't quite make it completely around the corner. The snow from the right side of the road pulled me in and I will admit, I panicked a little... and as a result over-corrected to the right... started sliding yet again... over-corrected to the left... putting my car in this weaving motion back and forth... spun around in a "fun" little circle and went deep down into the ditch, off of this small hillish bank about 45 feet away from the road. Puuurty exciting stuff I tell you. A really nice guy and his son stopped after watching what happened and helped me out... later telling me how completely cool it had looked. Joy. I'm glad it seemed to have serve some purpose of amusement I suppose. Buttt anyways... God was really protecting me. I slipped into the ditch between two ratherly large trees, and should have hit one. Actually, when I stepped out of my car I was under the ratherly large branches. The damage didn't look bad, in fact I have no dents or smashed glass whatsoever. However, the front right tire was well... not on. At all. The ball joint or axel broke and was really not in moving condition. But today I finally got it all straightened out with the towing company who came out and picked it up, hauled it to Alaska Auto something or other, and they should be giving me an estimate on how much it is going to cost to fix it... =/ I already know it's more than I first anticipated... but I'm ready to just get it fixed and done with if and as soon as possible.
Its a rather dreary some thing being without vehichle after you are being used to having one, and driving yourself everywhere with it. All welllllll... everything works together for them that love Him right?? Something like that anyways... I don't have my bible with me, but I know it says that. =o)
Life other than that is wonderfulll. I had a really, really good day. No papers... =) Until Wednesday anyways... which is in two days... ughh... but anyways. We were consentrating on today! =) I aced a reading quiz in economics, and history... well.. I got a test back... and it didn't look too good. But we'll not consentrate on that either! =] =] =] The point I was trying to make is now we are studying a new section, and starting new notes. Hopefully, I can get this down by this last quarter. If not, then, well... I'll have to work with what I've got, and I can say it's been a "learning experience".
I hope everyone is as feeling GREAT and super HAPPY today. Because Thanksgiving is next week! I get to go over to my Grandma's and help her with setting up for dinner and the whole family coming over. I'm stoked. =) =) =) It's going to be great. I miss my family. Even my immediate ones. =/
la ti da... hmm... should probably go and study the newly learned things discovered today in school, but thanks for all the comments. I'll try to stay on top of this. =) Love you all, and have a great evening. ;)

Ok,,,just for clarification... Stuff like this Should NOT be posted on your blog until after you call your friends!
It is 11:30 your time, and in between me trying to read as fast as possible to make sure you weren't in the hospital, and making sure that you are actually ok,,I realized what you just wrote about. And believe would have been a shorter panic within me if you had called!
For crying out loud, you posted this on MONDAY!! Its Wednesday, that proves how lame I am. For not getting on here sooner, that or for you not calling and telling me your praises to the Lord for saving you from harm.
If you need anything, seriously, call me.
I think my car can be uncovered, Brian should have or know where the keys are to it. Just call me kay, and I'll switch around the insurance if it takes too long with your car in the shop. I would hate for you to miss class.
I am So glad that you are doing ok... God is So good! Love you.
