Everything I Know

Hi All!

My blog (for the most part) is now finished thanks to some great advice from my dear, dear friend Luvvie (her blog is at http://www.awesomelyluvvie.com/ by the way - good plug, good plug). Most of my clothes are packed and most of the things I need to give away in my apartment are gone or earmarked to be gone soon. I have started cleaning out my office at work and all of my personal spaces are starting to clear. I have began my goodbyes and already purchased a one-way ticket.

I was not sure when the reality of the situation would start hitting me -- and it just did this morning. Something about fully acknowledging the fact that in one week my life will be totally different took my breath away. I started to think about how I'm leaving everything I have ever known for a world that is completely unknown and my eyes just started watering. I'm incredibly excited and anxious and ready for school - but aside from that, New York is this place, this thing, this being that could destroy me in the blink of an eye. And that is terrifying. I know I shouldn't worry as I have faith that it will all work out someway, somehow, but it would help if I had some inkling as to what that "someway, somehow" is. Each and every day is filled with hope and almost simultaneous disappointment regarding a job, finances, and the like. But I resolve to believe that the Lord has brought me thus far for a reason and I don't think He would just leave me here shattered and unfulfilled.

So, back to job hunting and preparing I go. I just made the first payment out of my pocket for school so if it wasn't official before, it SURE is NOW. :-) PLEASE DONATE! (I have the button now LOL)

    God will keep you in perfect peace because you stepped out on faith.

    You just have to do what I'm doing and HIT THE PAVEMENT! Print out at least 20 resumes and don't go back home until you've passed them all out and made important contacts.

    Until you get that big gig, you should be open to doing just about anything (that's legal) for a living. And you will get it, because if God brings you to it- he'll bring you to it.

    I'm so proud of you man!

    God bless. And I'll try to donate, but I'm in the same boat as you right now. So, whoever switches over to the "yacht" first must promise to throw out the lifeline.

    Congrats!
