week 1 of new life

I've officially moved home from college. While I never actually thought I'd be the type to have money right after graduation, I'm kind of surprised I let myself move back into my house. It's not my favorite place to be. But it's been going really well so far-- my brother and I have been spending time together (like hanging out at Greene Turtle watching the Barca/ManU game, good times) and my mom made dinner (I missed her cooking a lot). And things have kept me busy: the 12 hours of cleaning and unpacking I had to do, for instance. I had a job interview today that went well and is actually a line of work I'll enjoy so here's hoping I get that. I'm looking forward to saving up money to be able to pay bills and move out sooner rather than later. And finally get a Mac! (Really looking forward to that one.)

In two days some of my best friends and I head to the beach! OBX is waiting for us... sun, a huge house, 14 of us... it's going to be great. I'm also looking forward to God working on my heart about some things; it's going to be a challenging week as well as fun. But I embrace the challenge. He's had to do a lot of work in my heart for me to be okay with leaving my beloved Salisbury and Cru. It's unbelievable to me that I'm not leading worship every week anymore. I miss my band a lot. It's hard to listen to our worship music or songs we used to play without my heart breaking slightly. But I definitely want to visit and I want to see what God is doing in a new semester with new people.

I'm off to relax and read and hopefully get some sleep tonight... because I haven't been able to sleep without Larissa in the room. :)
