This year I have (once again) made the resolution to post on this, my blog, once a week. And I think that there is a much higher chance that I will actually follow through with it this year, because I am beginning to enjoy blogging, even if no one ever comments on what I write (hint, hint). It also gives me motivation to continue to improve my writing. In other words, by December 31st I plan to have written at least 52 blog posts.
I have changed the look of my blog (again). Not really sure if I like the way it looks yet, but I think I will keep it around for a little while and see if I get used to it. Originally I wanted to have a background with a travel theme, but all of the travel themed backgrounds I could find were a little too cheesy.
Right now I am working on applying for a summer job at a Catholic camp. The application is challenging me to take a deeper look at why I am Catholic and at who I am as a person. This application is much different than the one I submitted a few months ago for an RA position at my school and is challenging in a different way. But the jobs have similar goals: to help every person I encounter become the best person they can be – a saint. What makes me qualified to help people do that? Nothing – except that I am also trying to become a saint.
Surprisingly, this week really has not been too crazy. But that being said, it has been stressful. More stressful than I realized, until I picked up my new glasses today and thought they were the wrong ones…after I got home. So I went back to the eye doctor to double check. It turned out that they were the right ones, but the pair that I originally tried on was a different shade because the color lot of the plastic was different. The ladies at the eye doctor were kind enough to switch out the lenses since I liked the coloring of the model frames better. That’s what I get for ordering variegated glasses frames! The whole ordeal made me realize that I’m more stressed about this going abroad thing than I thought.
