The last weeks have brought so many changes to my life. So. Many.
In the past two weeks, I have finished my college classes, packed everything single thing that I own into my car, graduated from college, played lava tag on the playground in Orange City in the middle of the night, moved away from my home of four years, said goodbye to all of my friends, moved back to my parents, planned and prepared for my sister's graduation party, cleaned the house for the family that came down for Becca's graduation, had a great time seeing my cousins, aunts, and uncle, watched my baby sister graduate from High School, and learned to make espresso.
It's been a busy few weeks.
I think I may be having a bit of an identity crisis. I am no longer a student. For all of my life - that I can remember - I have been a student. Suddenly, I am not. I don't even know what I am now. There is no "next step." There's always been something that comes next in my life, but I suddenly find myself at the end of a road. In a way, it's freeing - I can do whatever I want! Anything at all! If I wanted to move to Africa or China or London or Alaska - I could. But it's also terrifying. I don't know what I'm going to do. Pray for me, please.
My current mission (besides planting a garden, attempting to unpack/at least put some of the boxes away, and helping my mom move her classroom to the other end of the elementary school) is finding a "real job." I'm hoping to be in a real job, on my own, by the end of the summer. As much as I love my parents, I did not go to four years of college to live at home forever. My current thoughts about what kind of job I'm looking for are an entry-level position as a print graphic designer at a graphic design firm, ad agency, or something similar in the Dallas area. I'm not totally set on Dallas, but I do think it would be a good city for me to start out it, so that's where I'm targeting my search. But if you hear of a graphic design position anywhere at all, let me know and I will definitely apply! :)
But seriously, I could really use your prayers as I am adjusting to a lot of really huge changes in my life and making a lot of big decisions.
