A Little Update

Good morning, girls! I wanted to give you a little update before I head out to my 8 am Theology class. I moved in on Saturday and my apartment is huge! Well, at least compared to my dorm room last year. It isn’t anything extravagant, but it feels cozy to me. I have a gorgeous tree right outside the window by my desk and I’m excited to see it when the fall colors are in all their splendor.

I’ve spent the last few days running errands around town and campus. As I drove through campus for the first time since last year, I was reminded how much I like being here. I thanked God right there in my car for planting me here at this time. It just gets me so excited to know that I get to be here while I pursue my dream of being a teacher.

Now, to my favorite update of all! I GOT A JOB. I’m going to be working at the Early Learning Center on campus. Since I applied late in the summer, the positions available were extremely limited. For right now, I’m going to be wearing an assortment of hats. My main job will be cleaning the place in the afternoon and I’ll also sub for others when need be. Next semester I should be able to have a set amount of hours in a classroom each week. I’m excited to have my foot in the door and work toward a goal. I keep reminding myself that “he who is faithful in the little things…”

I’ll be back tomorrow with a post about the United Arab Emirates and an interview with a precious friend! Are you intrigued? Come back tomorrow and find out what I’m talking about…
