Good Things...

Today was an expectedly wonderful day. I am currently housesitting for my brother which meant that waking up 20 minutes late today did not matter. I got to school in 8 minutes. Wonderful. Then, came the joys:

....Golf Carts....


Today I drove around a golf cart on Redwoods Golf Course, for a class! I know hard to believe right? This is one of my few solaces in my 7 class crazy busy semester. I "have" to take a human kinetics course - golf. Oh Trinity Western and the Liberal Arts Education. We got to class today and he told us we were taking carts out on the course. Have you driven one of these things? Its' fun times. We definitely "lost our way" at one point and ended up back at the clubhouse. Good times in golf class.

...Mars Hill...
I have always, always wanted to be published in the school newspaper. I promise, unlike other school papers, it is not lame at all. Its very hip, and usually the people writing it have witty comments and hipster things to say. Then I found out one of my English friends was going to be the Editor next year and she suggested I get an article in before graduation. She liked it, and I got published. It's certainly not my best work, but the paper also publishes online if you want to read it. Sneaked it in for the last issue of my graduation year. Hurrah!

....Dr. John Klassen...
Just to top the day off, I finished my history class today with one of my favourite proffessors Dr. John Klassen. This man is wonderful, and I always just want him to like me, because he is sooo brilliant, and also witty. He likes to talk about things as they are. I basically just think he is great. After class, he walked over to me and said "Sharelle, I loved your article in the Mars Hill, well done". True story! That seriously happened. This is beggining to sound like I think I am awesome, which I don't, I promise you, but this was a sincere moment of sheer joy. That was my greatest fear with the article, that profs would read it and laugh. But Klassen liked it, and that made my day.

well, I think you are awesome...and I haven't read the article yet, but this Klassen fellow sounds pretty trustworthy, so I'm going to go with his take on your piece. You always make me laugh, Sharelley.

oh sharelle...you ARE awesome. and is Klassen the white haired guy with dark-rimmed glasses? if it is, it's funny to me that you and him are bestfriends...because now that's what you are.

Sharelle, you're brilliant. Great article and I loved how you finished it. I do like Klassen myself. Always great discussions in his class. He really likes those historical women.. in a good way.

Every once of me wants to dislike your pro-TWU article (yes, I am still bitter and jaded against TWU), but I must say the article was excellent. Well done Sharelle, you are now officially a published writer.

Sharelle, despite the fact that you insulted the school which has given me an excellent education, I thoroughly enjoyed your article - it WAS very well written. I enjoyed the language that you used... I don't blame you at all for being excited. Congratulations!!!
