Pray or Think

(a piece I did inspired by Calico Courtney Brooks)

Being a freshly spat out college graduate is scary. I am overwhelmed in ways that I would much prefer to the ways in which I was overwhelmed while in college. But its just freaky having life rush at me so quickly right after graduation. Here is a prayer, or just think of me, request:

I have 5 more days of nannying. There goes the kick ass income, but everyone say a big welcome back to my sanity. Praise God.

I am working for an incredible artist with a crazy schedule. Sometimes busy busy, sometimes nothing. And I could potentially start working for another artistic duo soon who are wanting a more strenuous work schedule. This will be good for my soon to be empty pockets, but heavy on my heart in trying to find time to visit California.

I am homesick. I miss my quite hometown so much. I am sad that my road at home is being invaded by hipsters as opposed to once bubbling over with friendly old old old people. I miss my sisters and their incredible humor and cuddliness so much.

I miss my grandparents. I was so lucky to have gotten to live with them for a month in January. I love them so much.

I miss Camp Hammer so much. The incredible community. The beautiful serene redwood forests.

I am worried about my housing situation. We have probably looked at around 10 houses and nothing has worked out. We have to move in a little over 2 weeks and we don't have anywhere to move to. I am stressed out.

I am thankful for the good and the bad. I learn from it all. But I really just want to get things in order here. I want my job to be stable for awhile, I want to set a date to visit California, I want to find a house to live in and move in already. I want to feel stable because my heart is ready for responsibility and maturity.
