Thought: Love List

During this interim we had a different RA because both of ours were studying abroad. It was actually my old RA from freshman year! His name is Mark VanderHeide. He is wonderful and awesome and plays board games!

For one of our floor meetings, Mark told us about a love list he was working on. It was simple really, There is no criteria at all, they can be seemingly shallow things like . . . umbrellas! They can be deep things like Church Community! You can list individual people, or just say 'friends'. Since I am sharing my list with the world, I am leaving specific people off for now. So here is a selection.
