"Meet Me in St. Louis"

In 2.5 hours *2am* I'll be bording a bus, along with some fellow CBC youth work majors, driving 2 hours to get to Seatle then flying to Chicago O'hare Int. then bording another plan to reach St. Louis at somepoint tomorrow afternoon.

I've never been to Missouri! I'm excited to scratch another state off my list. One day I'd like to have been to them all!

Why am I going you may be asking. To see this of course......

Just kiddin'! Although I'm sure I'll see it that isn't why we're going.

We will be attending the National Youth Specialties Youth Conference thingy!

Where thousands of youth pastors and youth workers get together and have a party. There are a ton of speakers and seminars, concerts etc! It's our time to be the youth....

Here are some quick facts about St. Louis for you:

  • The custom of placing chocolate on hotel pillows began here when the actor Cary Grant used chocolate for wooing purposes at the Mayfair Hotel downtown.

  • The St. Louis Cardinals have won more world championships than any other National League team.

  • The first successful parachute jump to be made from a moving airplane was made by Captain Berry at St. Louis, in 1912 **note "successful**

  • The state animal is the Mule.

  • The tallest man in documented medical history was Robert Pershing Wadlow from St. Louis. He was 8 feet, 11.1 inches tall

yesterday in my youth issues class I had a birthday.

I turned to ask renee for a piece of gum and when she gave it to me she said "happy birthday" then from the other side kendra in a loud voice was like "Megan it's your birthday?" then matt was like " oh happy birthday megan!" at this point mike *who had seen the interaction between renee* started singing happy birthday pretty soon the whole class joined in! by this point i was laughing histarically at the situation and after the song was done my proff who had been talking to a tech. guy *silly computer issues* turned to me and was like "megan, it's yoru birthday!" ... and I just lost it.

good times. good times.

a framework of fragility begins to settle in your desperate soul
the aching you are experiencing is called just that.
you battle experience
who asked it to tresspass anyways.

a silent story begins to etch itself on you reactions
a subtlety becomes boisterous
this frame.
this experience.
not allowed to blossom creates havoc in the cramped courters

it will escape
