cool guys never look at explosions

I'm so not good at remembering to blog. A quick little update on what's up with it:

1. I got a job! Or, at least, I think I got a job. I have been recommended for hire at Baker 6th Grade Campus in La Porte! I still have to take my TExES test and sign up for Texas Teachers training seminars, but I'm pretty sure I'm golden. I've been studying. It's tricky. But the review questions have made me SO excited thinking about the kiddos I'm about to meet and all the ways the Lord will challenge me to grow this year :)

2. Umm...before that I went to Greece and London. You'll have to check out my Facebook pictures for details about that. They tell the story better than I ever could. I will summarize and say that I want to travel a LOT, but I want to keep my home where it belongs.

3. I'm really poor. I don't have a paycheck until I start up the school year. I also don't really have the time or resources to find something temporary. It's going to be a very interesting/boring summer of living frugally. Want to know what all I would do if I could afford it? Ok!

If I could, I would go to Sea World, Fiesta Texas and Six Flags. I would go visit friends in Brady, Abilene, DFW and San Antonio. I would spend an immense amount of time hanging out on the beach in Port A. I would go to handfuls of Astros games. I would go to Michigan. I would do a lot of fun stuff. The end.

Today, I am going to go hang out at the public library and spend some time with Jesus. I'm super amazed at how everything seems to be coming together and it is certainly of no doing on my part. I have been thinking a lot lately about the daily decision to give things to the Lord. I'll elaborate more on that at a later date. For now, I am going to go do what I do best: eat Mexican food.

peace and love :)

p.s. let me know if you or anyone you know needs a babysitter...or a lemonade stand that needs tending.
