Merry Christmas from the Home of the First Christmas Tree [Nov. 22nd, 2004|11:54 am]

Greetings from Riga Latvia Northern/Eastern Europe. Growing up in the State of Washington, I have fond memories of Christmas time. Snow, family get togethers, cutting the Chtistmas Tree, ice skating on the frozen ponds and going out with my facter in the fire truck playing Christmas music over load speakers on top of the truck.

Now I am living in Latvia which looks very much like Washington State.

I just wanted to share that the first record of a Christmas Tree was in the city of Riga Latvia in the year 1510

Happy holidays to all.

Regards, Mike an American living in Riga

Hello this group is pretty cool but hasn't had a post in a while so I figured I would remedy that. This is me and 4 other guys from Michigan's livejournal; two of us are at ORU this year. Have a fun and safe labor day weekend. God bless, -josh

Hey all you ORU Maniacs! I'm Seth Garrepy, and I'm going into my 2nd semester at ORU in Fall '04. I'm a Music Composition major, bent on seeing His kingdom come through music.

My journal is on LJ, so stop by sometime!

I know Tana, she's a friend of Jen Vaughn, who I know well.

Shout out to all my ORU bud's!

New to the community [May. 24th, 2004|02:33 pm]

I just stumbled upon this community today. It is so cool! I graduated from ORU in '99 with a degree in Eng. Ed. I'm back in CA now teaching, working on my MA, and basically keeping very busy. My LJ is kind of sparse (I only have an account here because so many of my online friends are on LJ), so if you want the real deal, my personal blog is at http://ithilwyn.blogdrive.com.

Just saying "HI" to all you Oral Roberts kids out there. I went to ORU from 2000-2002. Some of you might have known me as "Shorty." I am just checking this out to see if there is anyone I know here.

Hey everyone, I'm Rachel. I'm actually coming in August to ORU, but I just happened upon this community and was like "Dude! Wicked!"

So...any pointers about ORU that I should know before I come down? I'm interested to know!

Eternal Flame... [Mar. 1st, 2004|11:57 pm]

[Current Mood |chipperchipper]
[Current Music |Por Una Cabeza, by Carlos Gardel (cool tango from True Lies)]

So, as Strong Bad would say, "HOLY CRAP!" umm...so nobody has posted here for a while, so I guess I will. Did anybody else notice that the Eternal flame over the prayer was OUT yesterday? and The night before! I didn't happen to notice today if it was back on....lemme go look out a window...
Yep! It's back on! I was gettin scared for a second there...I was like, "did somebody else follow in President Robert's footsteps--climb up there and turn it off?!?" lol. Soooooo how is everybody doing? *nods* Mmmhmm...that's good to hear...
OOH! So I finally got a job, praise God--and spring break is coming soon upon us. On a random thought--Matrix Revolutions isn't coming out on video/dvd til April 6! That makes me sad.....I gotta wait that long! but that's ok...I can handle it....I know what should get some commentary on here--at least for a while...

Who has seen The Passion? WOW...wasn't that a good movie? Mel Gibson did a really good job on that...

random stuff [Dec. 22nd, 2003|12:27 am]

[Current Music |Augustine's Confession, Switchfoot]

Hey what's up? My name is the yellow dart....ok, maybe not--I really just stole that from a strong bad email. Ok, so I'm really more orange than yellow....and my name is Tana...I'm a mabee maniac (yay for maniacs!), I like homestarrunner, candle lit dinners, long walks on the beach, and poking dead things with a stick lol. So, as you can see I'm just crazy in general. Ok, so more on the reals...I'm a junior, majoring in Pastoral Care and minoring in Psychology. I like to go to the movies, quote movies....and eat in Saga...ok, so I was lying about that last part...but anyway...so yeah....umm...I love ORU and it's been great going to school here...the people are wonderful...well, most of them lol..and...I really don't know what else to say here 'cause I already kinda introduced myself...don't worry, I am deeper than just liking homestarrunner and movies lol....and never a dull moment. Leave me a message, and have a Merry Christmas!
