Meet Carter! :)

yes. Carter the Car. ;)
Where have I been? Working 30-40 hours a week so I could get my baby. :) He's a 2004 Saturn Ion. Anyone who's ever had a car knows how much I mean it when I say "I LOVE having my own car!" I got him just in time for school, too. :) Two days before to be exact. You know that feeling when things just feel ight? When God says, "This! Right here!". That's what my week has been like. First with this car, and now with school. Even though it is "just" Community College (like it makes a difference- school is school in my opinion) it just feels like that's where I'm supposed to be. I love my classes, and I actually *want* to do the homework (yikes! I'm turning even more into a nerd!), and my teachers are all awesome. My Psych teacher gives us texting breaks during class. Aweome. :)

Of course it's not all perfect. All of my assignments are online. The program they use requires Adobe, which as we all know isn't supported by Apple, which means I can't use my iPad. So, I'm trying to figure out what to do about that. I love my iPad, but I wish I would've thought things through more carefully before I bought it. Oh well, what's done is done.

In other news, we moved. I don't want to say finally, but it's feels good having that whole nightmare over with. I miss the country so much. I've only been out there twice since we left. Even though it was the "Meth Capital of America" hey, it's home. ;) But here, at least I can run without worrying about being abducted, or running into one of the 15 (or something like that) registerd sex-offenders that lived in my town. And concrete is much easier to run on that gravel. But I miss the space and privacy.

Let's see, what else? Oh, I pre-ordered Scotty McCreery's new album. ;) I'm so excited. I have so much respect for him, it's not even funny. His apparent love for Christ, and not being ashamed of it, or hiding it, or keeping it separate from his career is so incredible, and encouraging. You just don't see that very often anymore. :(

Celtic Thunder. Talk about changes. If anyone else is a Glee fan, then you've probably been watching The Glee Project, which means you probably know by now that CT's Damian McGinty has one a spot in the next season of Glee. Am I happy for him? Sure. It's what he wanted, and winning a spot on the most popular show on TV out of 40,000 people is quite and accomplishment. Unfortunately,  that means he had to leave CT. You can read his blog post about it here.

And on that note, homework is calling my name. I couldn't believe how much homework I had the first week of school. But hey, it's college. College. Geez, I'm old. :p
