Well, I realized that I hadn't blogged in a while so I decided I would do another catch up blog. This last month has been kind of different.
For starters, August started out with my church coming here to the Dream Center and it was super fun and it reminded me a lot of where I come from. Being in L.A. even in a Christian environment can have an impact on you that can make you forget who you are, and what you stand for. Don't get me wrong, L.A. and the Dream Center have both had a good impact on me as well, more good then bad. But it still has had a little bit of a bad impact as well. But my church coming here in August quickly made me remember who I am and where I come from and whipped me back into shape. They also made me REALLY, REALLY, REALLY miss home which has put me on this anxious wait and major countdown to come home which I have had to work on because if I focus on just that then I won't be focusing on what God has in store for me for the last of my time here.
The second thing that has made the last month or so weird is that Bri, my room mate that I started the year out with, is no longer here. I miss her like crazy!!! It's just been weird because I came here and had Bri, and she became my best friend here and now she's gone and it feels like I have to start all over again friend-wise due to having that void of no longer having a best friend here at DC. So that has been weird to adjust to.
On top of Bri leaving we had a new addition to our room family. Meaning Georgia. She's from England. She's awesome. She's 18. She's boy crazy =) Georgia came in at a time where Bri, Stacy and I were just like, REALLY? ANOTHER ROOM MATE? and then she ended up winning us all over. We LOVE Georgia. She fit in PERFECTLY.
Then, within this last week, since Bri is gone, we had a spare bed and registration thought it'd be great to give us ANOTHER new room mate the same week Stacy was LEAVING. Meaning, once again, FOUR girls in ONE room the size of the room I had TO MYSELF back home. So, we got Ra'chelle. She's from the Northwest as well. She's 19. Super sweet. Just loud in the mornings...which isn't a good thing for me or anyone else because when I get woken up BEFORE my alarm goes off...well, let's just say grumpy gills comes out...so I've had to work on that, don't want to make the new room mate feel uncomfortable right?
Another thing is Stacy left, leaving me as the LAST from the original group in our room. It's weird...I feel different. I used to feel really comfortable in our room knowing I was gonna come home to my bri-bri and stacy-loo but both of which are no longer there and now I come home to the two other girls. Please, don't get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these other girls but it's just weird when your friends have left you and you're by yourself and you have to make a whole new list of friends just so you don't go crazy for the next month while you wait to go home...
Finally, I come home soon! I'm very, very, VERY excited to come home and see what God has in store for me over the next part of my life. Everything has changed SO MUCH since I left home in February I'm kinda worried if I'm going to have problems adjusting back to my old life...well sort of old life. Then of course there's the fact that I'm going to have to find a job, car and eventually, by the course of a year, my goal is to be living on my own or with a room mate, but not a home. Let's see how that works out huh?
I think that is it for updates except for the fact that going back to the BEAUTIFUL, LOVELY, WONDERFUL, RAINY Northwest couldn't come sooner. I hate heat, especially when it's hitting the hottest days of the year this week here in L.A.
