Oh wow, Im a bad blogger...

Well, I suppose it's been a while since I have last blogged but I really want to be better at this! At least to offer me some sort of release in this coming crazy semester. Well I'm hoping that 2010 will be the year that I don't have to transfer or move somewhere else. In the past few years I have transferred and moved so much that I desperately want to be able to call one place my home. During the month of December I was constantly going from place to place visiting people, and I realized that I called three places home. Meaning, I had a toothbrush in three different cities!! Now, don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE visiting my family and friends, but constantly packing my bags and living out of a suitcase can become extremely tiring. Wow, I sound like an old lady ;)
Anywhooo well I think the last time I gave a personal update on this thing was when I moved to San Luis. Well that has all changed (see the pattern?), and I moved into my wonderful brother and sis-in-law's house in Bakersfield. I am so thankful to have such an amazing family who are all so generous. Tomorrow I start school at Bakersfield College and will be taking the pre-requisite courses for the Nursing program. So that means lots of Chemistry and Biology...yuck. I know that I will only make it through by God's grace and the encouragement from my family and good friends :) I would say it is quite humbling to be going back to BC. I went there the semester after I graduated high school and vowed that I would never go there again. I used to look below the college at the many oil rigs and piles of dirt and imagine I was gazing at the ocean. Haha ironic eh?? No, I know there are some great professors there and it is just a stepping stone to get where I want to be. And I am so thankful that God has opened this door, and really revealed to me what it is that I am supposed to do. He has provided in so many ways that I do not even deserve. But when do we ever "deserve" God's blessings? I am so overwhelmed with all that He has done in my life, and I am so excited to see what new adventures I will have this year!!!
Well, that's all I can think of for now. But I'm sure I'll have some gruesome stories of dissecting cats or something soon so I'll be sure to document that ;)
