Big News

My graduation is swiftly approaching. With every day that passes I realize anew how much I am going to miss my college life. I love being on campus and just the atmosphere there. I love learning. I love my instructors. This has been an amazing adventure and I am definitely going to miss it. Right now I'm trying to stay in the moment and enjoy every second that I have.

But I'm not going to stay in the past. I do have a bright future ahead of me, so even though one chapter is ending I will focus on the fact that another is beginning.

And this new beginning is incredibly exciting to me!!

I am moving. That may not sound like much. But let me explain. I have lived in the same house for twenty years. I hate change. I am not flexible. I don't try new things...ever. So let me repeat: I am moving!

This is crazy, people!

But I am super excited. I am moving across the state to live with my sister and brother-in-law to look after their daughter (once she's born) while they work. I am going to be a nanny to my own niece. I love children so, so much so being a nanny is a dream come true in itself...and then add to that that she's my niece and I am freaking out with joy over here. :D I cannot wait to begin this new adventure! So that's my big news. I'm moving so I can nanny my niece. And I am so, so very excited about it! :)

The End of an Era

Well, my last year of college is winding to a close...

This isn't a guarantee that I won't be doing more college education in the future, but for now...this is the end.

Today was my very last tournament for AEC. One part of my college life has now finished. I am sad for various reasons. I loved AEC! I also love being on campus and going to class and just the whole atmosphere of our community college. I am also happy, for various reasons. I'm happy to be done with homework (very happy). I am excited for the next adventure (you'll be hearing about that soon...). I'm happy I'll have more free time to write!

I'm a little saddened by this chapter of my life ending, but mostly excited for what's next. I'm not nearly as nostalgic as I was leaving high school. Is that because I'm older? Or because I don't care for college as much as I did my high school life? Probably a bit of both.

I still have 3 weeks of class....but for now (a little early) here's goodbye to college and hello to my beautiful future! :D

It is April 8th and I haven't blogged yet this month! Eek!

What has been happening in my life lately?

In the world of writing, aside from Isolated finally being published (yay!), I have been working very hard on finishing Dusty. This book is stealing my heart. Dusty is a hard character to write because she's supposed to be this wise, spiritual woman....and that's not me at all. But with lots of prayer and lots of scripture reading I am able to get through it. :) I have also been doing a lot of fanfiction writing. You can find that HERE

School is nearly finished! One more month and I will have my associates. I have greatly enjoyed my time at the community college here. I do vividly remember freaking out and being terrified of going to college. However, it turned out to be an amazing experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything. It has been fun, I've learned a lot, and I am going to miss it when it is over.

That's basically where I am at right now; finishing school and writing my books. :)
