My internship ends on Saturday and I won't lie I am relieved but also stressed. I have applied to over 40 positions in El Paso and only just got my first interview for one of the least expected. Nasser and I are flying out to Missourri to get my car from my mom. I feel bad about the hit and run visit, but it WILL be good to see her, even if for just a few minutes. We are then heading to Dallas to spend some much needed qt with Brooke and the hubby. Woot! We'll pass through Abilene briefly if only to say hello to brandon, and then be on our way back to El Paso in time for Nasser to do his ref thing. Speaking of which.. yes the rumors are true.. Nasser and I are dating! Now that greaterworks is ending and there are no longer going to be communities in Juarez.. We can finally be official.. it has been a tough few months pretending like it wasn't happening, but what can I say.. rules are meant to be broken. He is a phenomenal man and I am excited to see what happens in the future!

Lots of news..

Lots of things have happened in the last week or so...

I got my shoulder surgery.. I am currently doped up and still in a bit of uncomfort. Thankfully I am surrounded by people who truly care for me and are worrying every minute possible.

Second bit is that I am leaving my internship with Greaterworks earlier than expected. I got the news Friday that I will be transitioning out by February 1st. That means I am job searching like crazy and apartment hunting as well. We have found some great choices though and pretty affordable with roommates. So that's sort of the immediate plan. I'll be flying up to Missourri to get my car from my mom as soon as I can so that I'll have a vehicle. Sort of a bummer for her since she just got it.. I feel bad since I know it has been a help to her.. but I don't have much of an option since I have to transition out so quickly. Luckily there is a pretty good bus system here until that is resolved.

In other news things are going well for me overall.. I am still living a life of vague explanations until details can be revealed post Feb 1st. But trust me when I tell you things are going delightfully well in all areas of my life. There have been a few bumps in the road, and it has been an odd journey but God is doing some crazy cool things in my life. I am nervous for the big reveal.. but I am ready to be open with my life story more than the two or three people who really know whats going on. So.. stay tuned :)

job searching..

I have been exploring some training specific job boards and organizations.. I won't lie I am pretty excited about what its looking like. I am going to have some good options and directions out there.. thats encouraging :) I leave for Minneapolis tomorrow.. for our retreat. I still don't know what the next few months are going to look like, or who they will include for that matter, but I am hoping that God is in the midst of it and that it will work out as it always does. I miss the less complicated days.. but I guess you have to grow up some day.. haha.. I'm still working on that..

Well I need to go pack and possibly play a little guitar. I can almost crappily play Yesterday AND Amazing Grace. Woot.
