Despite yesterday's weirdness, today's been pretty good. Though I still don't know how I did on my Physics test or my molecular quiz from Wednesday, I am trying not to worry about them and just hope for the best. The good part is that I got the schedule I wanted for next year, and it looks like the classes will be great. I can't wait to take Medical Microbiology and Virology. I'm sure I'll also like Molecular Bio lab and Organic Chemistry. All of thee will be wonderful stepping stones towards a genetic counseling career. My adviser told me that being a genetic counselor is hard, because you have to constantly give people bad news... but in the years he's known me, that he knows I have a strong enough heart to do it. It made me feel good. x]

Now the only thing bogging me down is facing Lauren on Wednesday. I went to her house yesterday and was really looking forward to hanging out with her, and instead the visit turned into a mission to save my soul. I'm a Christian, and I am proud of that, but I DON'T believe accepting Jesus as your personal savior is the only way to get to heaven. I never have and I never will, and her family is so convinced the Rapture is coming soon that they were almost forcing me to convert to their way of thinking. Noooo thank you, I'm sorry if you think I'm going to hell, but I don't even believe in hell at all. They made me watch "Left Behind", those Kirk Cameron movies about the Rapture, and how the world will just be horrible once the Anti Christ rises. Again, not something I believe in. They even gave me books to read... oh man, why didn't I just decline?

So I'll have to tell Lauren at some point that I just don't agree with her.... and then I know the pity storm will come since she failed to "save" me. But I won't lie to her, I just can't do that. :|
