Not certain why I keep ignoring writing on my blog but I do. Here’s an update on life and what’s been happening w/ me:
We had a very merry Christmas this year. Funding was tight for all parties involved so the tree had smaller amounts but better gifts for all of us that were there. It was a great Christmas with a lot of family.
It was hard to get into the Christmas spirit this year because we were packing our apartment up as we were preparing to move me down to Portland to start school at Multnomah University. It was looking a little dicey for getting all of our stuff together but with the help of my friends and my parents especially we were able to get all of our stuff packed up and loaded into our moving truck.
On Monday Dec. 28th, we left Spokane and started the long trek from Spokane to Portland. My parents joined us on the road trip down and again were a HUGE help getting us down here and set-up. We now have a nice three bedroom apartment that is a big upgrade over what we had before. It’s two stories with the living room, kitchen and dining room on the first floor and all of the bedrooms upstairs. It’s a much better layout than our last apartment. It also has a lot more windows meaning we get a lot more natural light in our apartment. This is a very good thing. Once I get it more setup, I will post some pictures for people to see.
Today started orientation for school. This helped us figure out which classes we wanted and what schedules we wanted as well as what we needed to get done for our major’s. I had intended to have all day full of classes but all of the classes I originally wanted we full so I had to adjust my schedule around and now all of my classes happen in the afternoon. Kind of a cool/scary thought that I’m in charge of scheduling my own classes and taking them when I want. I’ve never had that before.
One cool part that they had with orientation was they had a Faculty Friend outing. Basically all of us transfer students met up with a professor, Dave, and hung out and got to know him, and each other a lot better. I made some cool friends with a very young married couple that are going to Multnomah on faith just like I am. God is an amazing God that is providing a lot for a lot of the people I met tonight. It’s awesome to be able to brag about how big and amazing my God is. It’s nice to know that He’s big enough to share too :p
It’s late so I will cut this blog off now before I continue to ramble for another six or seven paragraphs. I need to rest. Early morning tomorrow too.
