life beyond the well…

trying to figure out what’s missing…

1 Comment

so, i’ve been down here in georgia for almost 3 weeks and i’ve just finished my first 2 weeks of class. i’ve learned my way around (for the most part), which means i can get to school, downtown, the grocery store, the mall, the bank, etc. might not be able to get there quick, but i can get there. overall, things here are good and i think i’ve adjusted to the new place pretty well.

now that i’ve gotten into a routine of some sorts, i’m starting to feel like something is missing. at first i thought it was a little homesickness, but then i realized that there was something else that was missing…and so i’ve spent the last few days wondering exactly what that might be. i’m probably closer to my friends than i’ve been in a while because we talk more consistently than we did before…but it’s still something else…

lately i’ve decided that the best way to fill whatever void that i have was just by really getting into the word and reading lots of devotionals and things of that nature. it’s definitely made me feel better and i’ve gotten the reassurance that i might have been needing regarding my decision to come here. inspired by one of my girls, i just picked up “the 5 love languages” and it’s definitely been a good read. i think my next picks are “good to great” and/or “a people’s history of america” or something like that. i got a coupon to borders and i’m excited.

so yeah…i’m slowly getting back into the swing of things…and discovering where i fit into the scheme of life in athens, georgia.

definitely keep me in your prayers…i’m searching for a job, and i definitely need to maintain myself in all ways…emotionally, socially, spiritually, etc…

peace and blessings
