No way to play catch up

So much has been going on... and so little at the same time.
And there is no way to really play catch up. So here are some current items list style, of course.
  • I don't give two hoots about the super bowl this year. And all the facebook/twitter arguing is a bit ridiculous. 
  • Online classes are a go and doing well so far. I completed my first week and a half of assignments in 2 days. And then my Lit teacher sends out an e-mail Friday night saying she forgot to list 2 of 4 papers that are due Sunday night. So I occupied my Saturday with reading Tartuffe, a comedy from the 1640s(I believe). Once I made it through the introduction, I actually enjoyed it. Shocker. Papers were complete and turned in long before time due. I am hoping to stay on top of it all.
  • I am still out of work. And I HATE it. Not just the lack of money coming in but I have way too much time on my hands and not enough to keep me occupied... which means I have too much time to think and over-worry every little thing.
  • As much time as I have had on my hands, I have picked up this book to read over a dozen times and haven't really read much. It might be on the to do list for this week. 

  • I got a call from my company saying that they have some new projects coming up and they wanted an updated copy of my resume and to know if I was OK with traveling/relocating. They have 2 big projects coming up and the Project Manager who hired me wants me on one of them. One will be starting in 30-40 day in Wyoming and will last a year. The other is in Washington state, starting in 60 days for 18-21 months. I think either one of these would be awesome. I have never been to Wyoming or Washington. 
  • I went to church with Amanda who was in the Interior Design department with me at USM. She has moved back to the Mobile area since completing school and I have enjoyed spending time with her. I really enjoyed the service. It is so hard for me to find a church that has both a worship style and has a preacher that I enjoy listening to. The worship was amazing and the preacher was deep and strong while still humorous. I love that!
  • I have really bad eating habits. As in, not eating... at all. I have only been eating one meal a day. I know it is partly due to not being very active but also a little subconsciously I know I have been eating less to try and make the groceries stretch. Not good. I have all the stuff to make my meal replacement protein frappe. I will definitely be having at least one a day to help me stay a little more balanced.
I promised that this blog was going to be real, raw and 100% un-sugar-coated honesty. Money is non-existent right now. Paying for school and school books(which were a whopping $487.25 alone) took a huge chunk out of checking account and completely depleted everything that I have to live off of for February. This is my journal. My form of documenting my life. I am only stating this because I know God will provide. I want to look back on this and remember how faithful he is. So here is to the lovely $56.32 in my bank account (after car insurance comes out on the 31st). My tank is on E and at some point I need to drive back to Jackson and move all of my furniture out of my sister's house because the renters are moving in on February 1st.

Last night my mind wouldn't shut off at all. I hardly slept and I was so tempted to just take some nighttime medicine around 4 am just to get some sleep. BUT instead I turned Roger Bennett's Midnight Meditations on repeat on my phone and despite being ridiculously tired I went to church this morning. I am so glad I did. I am clinging to this verse today:
...Weeping may endure for a night,
but Joy Comes in The Morning.
Psalm 30:5


  1. I hope you can find a job! I know it's hard out there because everyone needs one and no one seems to be hiring!

  2. I hope that company comes through with a job for you! You deserve it!
