I’ve been quiet here lately, which is a trend that will most likely continue for now. I still enjoy writing and connecting with friends through social media, but my everyday life is pretty packed right now.
Michael and I take time to rest every week, but we have to be intentional about it because we are both busy with work, our church, and our friends and family. He’s an accountant, so his days are filled with things that are mind-numbingly boring to me. I’ve learned a lot from him though, and I’m so thankful that I’m learning how to discipline myself with money. (I talk about that more on my other blog, though I’ve been quiet there lately too.)
I accepted an offer as an Admissions Rep at Tulane University in December, and I feel so blessed/lucky/thankful that I was able to start a new chapter in a place that is already familiar to me. I still have so much to learn, but I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity.
I work in admissions, specifically with non-traditional students like me (people who have been out of school for a number of years and/or looking to change careers.) It’s already one of my favorite places to be, and I’m so happy to help others the way the awesome people there helped me. It was pretty cool to hear that my diploma will arrive soon too…finally. Another cool part about working full-time for the university is that I can continue going to school and pursuing degrees as long as I work there. (Um, I think we all know how much I love being in school, so I’m finishing up another degree now while thinking about what I’ll do next.)
Life at home is good too. Now that we’ve been married for several months, we’re in a great groove. I love being married to Michael, and we’re learning and growing individually and together. It’s awesome. We’re leading a small group, and we strive to spend quality time together and with our friends and family. My heart is full. I have so much more than anyone deserves, and I’m utterly grateful. Everything good that I have comes from the Lord…everything. Accepting Jesus has been the best, most life-changing decision I’ve ever made. Trusting God opened the door to these other good things.
It’s odd, as a blogger, to say that I don’t enjoy talking about every aspect of my life as much as I did before, but I know okay. People change, and I hope I never stop changing and evolving.
Does anyone here still blog? If so, will you share a link so I can check in and see what you’re saying?
