Whoa, Nelly.

Look out folks.  I'm about to BLOW YOUR MIND.

I have had a job for a week, and I love it.  Sunday morning preschool director at Christ Chapel Bible Church.  No, not full time with benefits, but it covers the bills AND [get this--], about half of my paycheck will go into my savings account.  That noise that you just heard was my dad giggling with glee like a lee-ttle girl.  I'm pretty pleased myself.  Bonus, I get to keep babysitting that cute little 6-month-old baby because I still have time.  WIN.

Also, I'm playing a nerdy online game.  I'm telling you because I love you and I can't keep things like this from you.  I'm trusting you to not judge me for my high level of nerdiness, mostly because I'm sure by this point it doesn't surprise you, not one little bit.  Good news, I'm playing the same game as my beau, so once I get past this beginner stuff, we can play together.  Bad news, I suck at it, so I have very low expectations for getting out of this beginner stuff.  Good news again, he's very encouraging and doesn't shame me for not knowing how to function in the most basic of ways in the game.  Bad news again, I am ashamed of me for not knowing how to function in the most basic of ways in the game.

Lastly, I got done with work at 1.  I then came home, made lunch, pulled on comfy clothes, and was confused by this strange new feeling...  The lack of pressing things to do.  No homework, no projects due, no job searching, no cleaning to be done.  I wasn't procrastinating anything or worried about any upcoming stressor.  There was an overwhelming peace and excitement for all the possibilities for my day.  I then sat at my computer to write a blog post and maybe, just maybe, play an online game.

After basking in this glorious glow for a few moments, I remembered all the things people said to me when I told them I was going to graduate a semester early.  The "no no no! stay in college as long as you can!" comments officially make no sense to me at all.  Those of you reading this who are worried about impending graduation, get excited.  I made cupcakes yesterday--not because I was stressed or procrastinating, but because I had time and I wanted to.  Cue angel chorus.

Love you.  I really do.


  1. What Online game are you playing?

    HERE'S the lamest part of that: I haven't read the books. Yet.
