okay – i have worked full time for over a month, so i can now issue an official opinion on what i think of working full time. here it is *drumroll*
i like it!!
now for the conditions/disclaimers. haha! you didn’t think it was that simple, did you? i love working full time – here at the church. and in this season of life. i could never do this for the rest of my life. sorry, but i can’t handle being gone from home that long. but while i’m single and young, it’s all good. and i don’t know if i would really like working full time if i had any other job. i just love my church and working here in the office. i mean, i get to work with my pastors full time – how amazing of a blessing is that?! and i’m totally loving the free evenings and weekends to plan and fill how i please, without the ever-present rain cloud of homework and school perpetually hovering right above my eyebrows for weeks on end. although i do miss the “college student” life, and the freedom that was involved in that, i’m very happy where i am. as the psalmist said, “the boundaries have fallen in pleasant places.” amen. and the money is nice too.
<gap> hopefully the dreadful/wonderful (depending on who you ask) event of cutting my hair will happen tomorrow (if my mom is up for it – she cuts my hair). don’t worry, everybody, i’m not going drastic. just a trim and a half. sheesh. it’s just hair. then again… ha! i didn’t think that at the beginning of last summer when it was cut way shorter than i had anticipated. that was bad. tears and unkind words and conflict and sin and apologizing followed shortly thereafter. *shaking head* not good. never again. here’s the lesson that i continually forget – trust your mother! mother’s know. trust me. trust them.
