Update Time!

Blogging may be few and far in between for this busy girl.....need I say more than this photo? :P

Just a quick update for now: Life RAWKS needless to say. I'm loving school, work, P90x, and what I'm learning in the Word.

School is great. My professors are awesome, and most of my classes are pretty interesting. The thing I'm looking forward to the most this semester is service learning. One of my professors requires 10 hours of volunteering for his course. I'm thinking about going to children's hospital in Minneapolis for my volunteering. The biggest reason I'm excited about this is I haven't really volunteered (outside of the PD and Church) since I was in high school. I'm looking forward to seeing what opportunities arise throughout it.

Work is good, although I'm glad to be working less now. It's nice to have the variety of school, work, and other activities in life.

I'm just finishing up my third week of P90X! I don't feel like I've been seeing a huge difference, but a lot of that has to do with my eating habits. I'm considering changing my diet around so that I can lose some more weight and continue on to my goal of becoming a brick house. :P Running is still on hold unfortunately until my physical therapy starts up. I'm hoping to start hitting the trails again within a month or two.

Last, but definitely not least, I just started to study the book of Ruth with my mom (if you know her, which all of you do, cause all of my followers are her children :P), so of course we're doing an in depth thirty day study. Because of school, were only doing the study three days a week and then meeting when we can. I've already been learning so much and trying to apply the book to my life. Ruth was very selfless (if you don't know this, go read Ruth it's only four chapters). With her model, I've been coming to notice that it something I need to work on big time. Everything isn't about me, and I need to be more aware of that sometimes. It's wonderful to see how the Lord worked in her favor because she submitted to His will for her life by being selfless. Awesome stuff.

Well, no promises on the next blog post. Until then, peace!
