It's been an interesting week. I've met some new friends and have been hanging out with a lot of new people. I feel like this is the key to getting out of a funk I have been in. I have desperately needed to expand my social circle and I hope that these relationships can continue to grow.

My whole work situation has also changed and this is scary but also exciting. I kept saying that I wished I had a way to back out of my serving job so I could go work at church. On Friday, I sat down with my manager and he said that he didn't think serving was working out for me. Here is my opportunity. The scary part is that I was depending on the income that this job was going to provide. Now I'm free to work at church, but I have no income at all. I've been feeling very called lately to the church and I think it's God that has been doing the calling. I have been running from this for a long time, but I think it's time for me to slow down a bit and start listening.

Finally, I thought I had my roommates for next year all figured out and I was really excited. But tonight that fell apart and I'm not really sure where I'm at with that. What I do know is that I really appreciate on of my future roommates. She has pledged to stick with me and continue to work on this project. This makes me feel so much less alone in this endeavor and I am so excited to live with her, even if ends up being just us two.
