back to reality!

Wow its been a long time since I have written a blog. Many things have happened since the last one. the largest is that my MEDIA CRIT paper is finished and turned in. Tom Carmody is in charge of it now, and will bleed green all over it. But the fact that its done causes me to turn my attention back to the reality of life. I have taken the last 2 1/2 weeks off of life and school to focus on the paper that has been previously mentioned. But I am back and graduation is closer and I still have no idea what is going to happen. all that to say, I'm done and feel like i am officially a senior and graduating after all...

Life after May...

So I have been thinking a lot about what is going to happen in my life after I graduate from Vanguard in May, 2008. I have a few options: I can tour Europe for a while immediately after graduation, then proceed back to the beloved town of Moshi, Tanzania. Or I could just go straight to Tanzania, or work and enter Grad school in the fall.

All of these options are amazing and I love all the ideas that are there, but they are scary and I don't know what to do. I would love to live in Moshi at TOA, but Lord knows that does not look like a possibility for me at the moment. I think that I will spend the summer in Africa, then come back to grad school in the fall. But all in all, I sorely miss my babies and children that I left in TOA. I can truly say that I left my heart in Africa. Those children stole my heart, and I want to leave them with it, but at the same time, I need it back here....


but kind of the same, my heart need to be here with me, so that I can find someone. Many people (including my mother) have been nagging me almost non-stop about dating someone, and yes i think that would be nice, but it would have to take the right person and be the right timing. I agree that my timing may not be the right timing, and that I need to learn to be in God's timing, but it would be nice to have some one like that to share things with...and like that much, in that way...

So that is my rant for the night...i guess it was kinda a boring homework night, and I was doing a lot of pondering on life today...

So this goes out to all those people that I can consider TRUE FRIENDS:

a true friend:

-returns phone calls
-texts back when you text them
-invites you to their events
-is honest about attending said events
-if they can't there is a good reason
-they will let you know what that good reason is
-sleep and homework are not really good reasons
-make the time in their lives to hang out with you
-will answer the phone at 2 AM
-listen to you vent and cry when needed
-will call you to vent
-show up on your doorstep, cuz they know you will be there for them
-will be there for you if you showed up on their doorstep

So thank you to all my friends that were there when they said they would be, and to those that were not, its ok...maybe our friendship was not meant to be. I know who my true friends are...
