Monday I got a job offer in Lynchburg which I am super excited about. I am so happy that Chris and I will finally be in the same town for once. I cannot even fathom the thought that I will be able to see him everyday. Also, I have formed some wonderful friendships in Lynchburg, so I am glad to be able to continue to develop them. I love Brentwood and I cannot wait to be able to attend regularly.

In less than 6 weeks I graduate! That is crazy, I cannot believe it is almost here. It is about time.
It is also crazy that Shelbi is married. This weekend I went to Chris's sister's wedding which was gorgeous. I had a fun time getting to know the Wilson's friends and family, crazy that one day I will be in her shoes.

I started Practicum Thursday and am excited to work with my preceptor, I know I will learn a lot probably become good friends with Lisa. I am on the cardiac floor, which is convenient since that is where I will be working in 3 months.

I am looking forward to seeing where God has me living in 3 months. Whether it is with my love, Jen, or by myself. Either way I know it will be wonderful. I am just looking forward to being in Lynchburg.

Its been awhile

Where to begin...
it has been awhile since I have blogged and a lot has happened.

Most recently..I did not get an offer for a job that I thought I wanted badly. I know that every thing happens for a reason, but sometimes it is hard to understand the reason. I am continually relying on God's plan and his will for my life and obviously this not where I should be right away, I find hope in that because I know He has a better plan than I could imagine. I have another interview this coming week so we will see what happen.

About two weeks ago I left for the Galapagos Islands. There was much that occurred but due to space and time I will just share my favorite moments.
Tortuga Bay-white sand, clear water, and mountains (first place we went in the gala)
Cafe Hernan-yummy cappuccinos and banana splits
Jugo (juice)-we had fresh homeade juice everyday-it was such a treat
Cliff jumping-exhilarating experience, something I never thought I would do
Snorkeling with sea lions-exciting and breath taking
Visiting Floriana-seeing huge tortises and drinking fresh spring water
The views-Quito, Gala, Floriana
The cathedral in Quito-the views, stained glass, arcitecture, the people, cafe-delightfully cheap, scrumpious brunch
The park of vendors-relaxing and beautiful

So I came back to the states with not a lot on my mind but a lot on my plate. Finishing up classes has been a challenge esp with little sleep, but I had a chance to come home even though most of my time was spent is nice to be here.

I do miss my boyfriend, Chris, mucho has been way to long. It is such a drag to go even a few days without seeing each other much less three weeks and not being able to fully communicate for a week, but the Lord helps us perservere and strength us. I also miss my friends...thankfully I got to see my bestie, Laura, twice while I was home, but I am excited about seeing Jen hopefully in a few days!
