Check, 1 2

So this is my inaugural blog post. I'm excited.

Tomorrow, I have a second interview for a job I really, really want. I almost can't even pray about it anymore --- but I do anyway. It's tough to want something so much that you can't even allow yourself to want it as much as you'd like to.

The job would take me several hundred miles away from my roots. When I tell people where I'm applying, they look at me knowingly and comment on the distance. Honestly, it hadn't even occurred to me that I would be far away --- I've just been ready to start a new adventure.

But now it's occurring to me that I am going to miss people and things ("I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life, I'll love you more"). And I've started to think about how to tell people who are important to me that they're important to me. I've got all kinds of craft ideas swirling in my head --- picture frames and jewelry to make for special someones. I have several letters that need to be written.

Ah, well. Everything will get done, and it's not like I'm definitely getting the job.

In other news, I've decided to take a few voice lessons. Just a carpe diem thing, I guess. I've just always wanted to, and figure now would be as good a time as any. My first lesson is Thursday.

Just one of the many completely random things I do.
