Blah blah blah filler post :D

Where oh where have I been?

I continue to be given trial after trial.

Sometimes it's a pleasant feeling, knowing that God believes I'm strong enough to overcome these challenges to live out His purpose for me. Every year I've been able to list off the issues and problems I have overcome. Some have been easier than others, that's for sure!

This year, my health has been my biggest problem. I will not complain, for I read far too many blogs about young children with cancer, adults with horrid diseases that you can't even imagine... they continue to fight and persevere. They are my inspiration to keep going through a period of some bad health. Since January, I have been out of work for a month combined. I damaged my wrist in a bizarre work injury (I hit my wrist on a clothing rack- sooo dangerous!) and was in unbearable pain for a few weeks. Recently, I developed pneumonia. I struggle with making my illnesses a bigger deal than they really are, so I didn't say much about a cold that popped up. Thankfully, when I started getting a fever a week later, my boyfriend encouraged me to get checked out. Turns out I have pneumonia, and another week later... I still feel very weak. But I will keep on!

Enough with that!

On a lighter note, I am definitely becoming more confident and steady. I like where I am, even though sometimes I'm unsure the outcomes that await. I'm applying for graduate school soon! Holy cow; when did I become an adult?!?! I am almost 23, and yet I still feel (for some bizarre reason), like I'm in HIGH SCHOOL. I still live with my dad, who spoils me rotten (which I do appreciate, but find cutting those ties to be extremely difficult).

My classes have been a lot of fun, especially now that I'm in my last year of my undergrad. I finally graduated from the classes that pretty much taught me all the basics. Now, I'm learning to apply everything I've learned into my own thoughts and ideas. The ideas and principles are advanced, and there is a lot of direction there as well. It is amazing! I'm definitely thinking Child and Family currently... but things change! I can never quite seem to make up my mind... but that's how life goes!

Um... bye for now :D.
