Raining Cats and Dogs

As everyone knows, it was a pretty crappy weekend. Rainy and cold and just yuck. But it was a pretty good weekend nonetheless. Friday i just played some apples to apples with friends and relaxed in my dorm.
Saturday rolled around and it was time for the PAWS Atlanta orientation, the no-kill animal shelter i’m now a volunteer at. A bunch of people, probably around 20, showed up for orientation and two of the staff showed us around the freshly renovated animal shelter (thanks to Lowe’s) and told us about all the rules etc. It took about an hour and a half, and was actually pretty entertaining…but verrry cold outside! After orientation i went back to Agnes and was invited to go ice skating with my best friend Casey, for her sister’s sweet 16. I was kinda nervous at first (because the last time i went ice skating i LITERALLY face planted and knocked the wind outta myself) but it was cool, and we didn’t fall once. Although it really irritated the issue i have with my heel.
Sunday rolls around, and it’s time for 12 Stone church! Let me tell you about 12 Stone. It is by far, the most God-led church i have ever been in. You can just feel His presence in their, and in all the band and speakers. It’s great. But what was even more great about today is that the choir was singing with the band today. I’d never seen it yet, and it was awesome. They sang a few Hillsong songs..it was like a concert! Then the pastor spoke about being an economic atheist…aka trusting God in life but not with your finances. It was pretty neat.. made me think about how much i stress myself out over money when i could just trust that God has it all planned out.. After church me and Meredith had Zaxby’s, which i hadn’t had in months. Yummm.
Then i went to volunteer at PAWS for my first day =]. It was fantastic. It was pouring, so i couldn’t walk any of the dogs, so i went over to the cat house. Let me tell you… it burdens my heart to see how many cats, not kittens, are just sittin waiting for someone to adopt them…but people never want cats because kittens are cuter. Well there is this one cat that i fell in love with. She’s like 8 years old and a complete sweetheart, and has been there for a couple of years. Here’s a picture of her.
 And theres another cat that just has one eye, and looks around all the time like it sees a bug it’s trying to catch. And then…there’s Phats. Named after his appearance..this poor cat’s previous owner made really bad diet decisions and now Phats is soooo huge he limps when he walks. It’s quite sad really, but he’s a sweetie too. After i finished playing with the cats and talking with a fellow volunteer, i went over and played with all the puppies and got to know some of the people i’d be seeing alot. Everyone is really nice. I am so glad i decided to do this. Anywho, now i’m about to go read a chapter of biology about Ecology. Then onto reading general info on the People’s Bible. Then i might start reading Desperate Characters for English. I’ll leave ya’ll with this funny video that my dad showed me. Its a parody about how Hitler reacted to the delay of Harry Potter 6 coming out in theaters. It’s hilarious to me.

Oh, and comments are appreciated!
