well my dear Sister, If I had to pick anyone to freak out with, it would be you.

and yes, I do get a little sick when I think about it. Sick with worry and excitement. We need a little emoticon that is excitedly gnawing at his nails. That would work perfect.

At least I know that in 11 nights from now we will be thinking the same thing. I plan to fall
asleep listening to Matt Maher on my walkman CD player. That might be my only consolation. :/

argh!!! I need to stop freaking out. I might be scaring the other discerners out there.

Attn Discerners!!!! I am OVERREACTING!! it's typically what I do when I am anticipating some major event or change in my life. The longer I have to wait, the more I react. I've been waiting since March. I've had quite a while to build up my reaction. :)

Okay, I'm not sure why this has a cartoon as it's only picture in the video... and it doesn't seem to have anything to do with....

ANYWAYS, listen to this song by Garth Brooks. It's called "You Move Me" and I think you'll find it pertinent...

Gah, you'll be missed on PM though, unless you get internet time.
Maybe I could send snail mail. :P That's still around, right?

Yes it is!! And that would be awesome! You'll have to print me out any new nun emos we get while I'm gone. I'll be back on (hopefully) for a little bit while i'm on home visits, but I should DEFINITELY be back on in three years when I get the internet back.
(see my "addresses" thread) :smile2:

Reindeers are fast though, you'd be lucky to use reindeer mail.[img]http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/public/style_emoticons/default/mellow.gif[/img]

I am going to have to start posting here as soon as I get a date pinned down - although it will probably be less than a month from now! :shocking:

I will still be on the internet, since I'm just starting prepostulancy, but it's still slightly terrifying :unsure: :covereyes: :shock: :twitch: but also very exciting! :nun2: :nun: :dance: :nunpray: :yahoo: :woot:

You are discerning with the Apostles of the Sacred Heart, right? I remembered there was someone discerning with them. If not, what order are you planning to enter?

LOL, sorry! I got you confused with someone else. I'm happy to hear that you are so close to setting a date. With me being the new vocations supporter on the board, I will definitely keep you in my prayers!

Ahhh!!! Holy ....:shock:....!!!!

Only 39 more days!!! This is so creepy!!
39 more days till I'll be in a uninform / habit for the rest of my life!!!
39 more days till I have to wake up at 5 every morning!!
39 more days till I have no Internet for three years!! <img src='http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sadder.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':sadder:' />

On a slightly more positive note...
39 more days till I can go to adoration everyday!
39 more days till I can randomly climb trees and burst into song because it is a perfectly normal thing to do in a Franciscan convent. :)
39 more days till I can spend all the time i need just sitting in the chapel...
... or reading theology books...
... or playing piano...
... and not babysitting. ( though I will miss it eventually)
39 more days till I will be presented as a bride to be to the love of my life (my Love and my Life)!

anywho, that's just my little scream session for the day.
:woot:

Man, I forgot how long ago I started this thread. Feels like just yesterday. now just change all the 39s to 9s, and that is pretty accurate for my situation. Accurate for the days, maybe not so much for the feelings. :unsure:
