we got internet!

Haha, we finally got our own internet today. It's a Mifi, so we can have it anywhere there is cell reception. It's sweet!

Well, if you don't already know, we decided to go to Fuller! I have a peace about it. I've been thinking about doing the Marriage & Family MA program there, and I'm pretty sure I'll start that next year. I think I need a year off of school, and I think I'll be more ready for the program after a year. But it's in God's hands.

I'm still working at the craft store, which is sometimes good, sometimes not. There is a lot of what seems like high school-ish drama that just gets tiring after a while. I am thinking about working at Prey's Fruit Barn again once they open again in June--especially if they can give me Sundays off. Craft Warehouse gave me Sunday mornings off last week, so now I can at least go to church, but it would be nice to have one whole day off with Paul.

On the up side, I'm really getting into crafts! I've been making a lot of handmade cards, and I'm really enjoying it. I also want to get into making my own jewelry, and learn calligraphy. I've never really done crafts before, so it's all new to me, but I'm finding it's super fun creating things. It just feels nice to learn a tangible skill after college and the academic world. It's nice too, because I get a lot of free stuff from the store that is slightly damaged that they can't sell anymore. So it's not so expensive to make things! :)

I've been totally neglecting my Etsy shop these past months because our internet was so unreliable. But I found out today that someone bought two things yesterday, so that was happy-making. I may get into it again now that we have the super-amazing internet!

Paul and I rented a good movie last night--October Sky. It's a true story about a kid in the 50's from a coal mining town, who decides to rise above everyone's expectations and build a rocket. It's a great, clean, and inspiring movie. I was left thinking how it seems like all the cool stuff happened in the 50's & 60's. The only new inventions we got since then are computers and the internet. It makes me wonder what someone's brain will create in the future. Or are we pretty much at a holding point now? I gotta admit though, it's pretty sweet how God made our brains to be able to come up with inventions--inventions that will get a person on the moon! Nowadays, no one really cares about other planets much, but it's pretty awesome when you think about it! Some dude was walking around on the moon! It's so exciting, and I can't wait to see what will happen in the future when we live our God-given potentials...

hehe making things is so much fun, I did it so much during home schooling that I haven't been very creative since, but I do know how lol. Oh yes October Sky is a great movie! I really like it too :) Yay for was nice to see you yesterday!
