just a quick update:
I will not be writing another entry until late August. This is why:
On May the 28th, two days after graduation, I will be boarding a plane headed for Billings, Montana. My friends who work at Yellowstone will pick me up and bring me to Yellowstone where I will work as a waitress/busser/dishwasher/serf/whatever for the rest of the summer. (I know, I know- Yellowstone Freaking National Park!!!) That is, until August 17, when I'll return to pack my college bags for, yes dear readers, Austin, TX!
I will be attending St. Edward's University and I couldn't be happier. I'll be able to get a teaching degree so I can live in Austin, or somewhere near Austin, and support myself with a real job, and I'll be able to be a singer/songwriter, and I'll hopefully be fluent in Spanish by the time I graduate which would be awesome for the teaching gig. (I'd hate to be a schoolteacher in Austin if half of my kids didn't understand a word I was saying. Oh-I probably wouldn't get hired either.)
Living in Texas, living my own life, and writing and singing my own songs is my dream. This dream may sound a little mundane, or random, or foolish, but it's mine and I can't believe it's coming true.
God loves me.
(not that, you know, if I went to auburn it would mean that He didn't love me or anything, but this... just celestial affection.)
