I've decided to start journaling. I've always said I wanted to be a "journaler", but I've never committed to keeping one. But, since I'm going to be leaving the Land of the Internet and still want to keep a good record of my travels, I decided I better start. I mean, technically after the 6 week technology fast we will have internet access at the local library. But, if I'm going to just be blogging once a week, I need to write stuff down so I don't forget it. I mean, I'm pretty sure I suffer from short term memory loss.
But with this whole journaling thing, I knew I needed to make it cute. Because I like cute stuff. So, I decorated my book. And I had intended on posting pictures of it...but I'm in a different room, and it's late, and I really don't want to pull out my camera. So, I'll post pictures another day. Haha! ;)
I got an email from my Mission Year alumni member today! (Um, yay! Exciting) I found out I'm going to be living with five other girls (or at least I think they're all girls based on names and some facebook stalking. But, we're not going to discuss my facebook stalking issues here.) I think it's going to be an amazing experience and I am so excited. 25 days! We are going to be attending Roseland Christian Reformed Church and working at Roseland Christian Ministries and Roseland Christian School. Obviously, I'd really like to work with kids in some capacity, but I know that God is going to place me right where he wants me!
Okay, so I'm pretty sure that I'm going to freeze my hiney off in Chicago. I mean, I think it gets cold here in Alabama! I did get a coat (this one) already, and I have long johns/scarf/hat/snow boots on my list of things I need....but if you're from the Lands of the North (aka where it snows) and you have any suggestions on specifics (brands and such) or think I need to add something to the list, please comment here or email me (it's on the Contact Me page beneath the About button). I'd be super appreciative. And I'm pretty sure my phalanges (that's fingers and toes!) would be too.
