Good news...I got a job working in the Career Services department at my school. Nothing fancy, but it's just enough hours to pay the bills and I won't be too worn out to do what I need to for class. School starts on April 20th...I start the job one week later. Praise God...it's all because of Him. I'm on a scholarship hunt right now, well, in between instant messages, Twitter and blogging. I want to take advantage of the time I have before school and work start to get out and see this city. You never know where life is going to take you, so enjoy what you have (and where you are) in the moment. I'm going to take some pictures and post em soon. Stay tuned. This blog will be exciting again...I promise.

Hey people....I've been gone for WAY too long. So much has happened. I'm living in San Francisco now, which is different in pretty much every single way from sunny Houston. The biggest changes for me are the weather and the lack of familiar faces. I miss my family and friends and have already gotten so homesick that it brought me to tears. But, I'm a big girl....I'll be fine. Lots of changes and adjustments....I'm learning more about who I am by the day. Maybe even by the minute. School begins in less than a month. I've gotten a great almost/possibly/maybe/probably definite job offer. I will keep you guys posted on the status. Pray for me. There's a great Dr. Seuss quote that I've been throwing around in my head alot since I've been here: "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." That sums up alot of the way I feel about my departure from Houston. I met some really special people in the last few months that I was there that I will never ever forget and with whom I hope I never lose contact. To those beautiful people whose faces I no longer have the pleasure of seeing each day, please know that no matter what life brings our way or where we find ourselves in the years ahead, even if (God forbid) our paths never cross again, I will always look back at the time we had together and smile....love and kisses.
