It's been a while since I posted!
I would just like to announce that Luke and I are going to be parents come July!
We're so very excited :)
Being married young adds an exciting element to life. Neither of us has any life goals or plans that get more specific than, "follow God and have kids." Changes are expected, which is why being flexible and having an open, adventuristic mind is important. Especially if you are married to Luke Moyer. Little did we know that our short-distant "plans" would become even more shortly distanted... Luke will be working full time this next semester at FC and possibly taking a couple classes, so he can still finish his BA degree in as short a time as possible. I will be going back to school barely full time (12 hours... the limit) and hope to spend more time at home and less time in the library or worrying about school. I have no intention on getting my BA as I once did. Whether I do or not is still up in the air but it is not a top priority. I may, instead, find a job over the summer that I can work at for a few years before we begin to have children, Lord willing.
or these plans could all go bust this next week and then I'll have to make a new update. :)
Important list of events for this semester:
Graduation (for some)
Summer (maybe I'll update again by then...)
I love Spring!
School has taken over the majority of Luke's and my life. At least we can never say we have nothing to do.
I always look towards the weekend with hope, saying, "I'm going to get so much done!" Oh, how naive. However, this weekend was more productive than the past few, but seriously, an added day to the weekend would be wonderful.
Well, here's an example of what Luke and I are up to:
- 16 hours of classes
- voice lessons
- SI leader for freshman Bible
- Sowers President
- Alpha Club
- 16 hours of classes
- Voice lessons
- Violin lessons
- Admissions Intern
- Yearbook Writer
- Y.W.T.O. President
- Alpha Club
It was during about the second week of school where I seriously considered dropping everything and staying at home 24/7. Everything was so overwhelming. Although at this point I would probably have to find a job. And suddenly F.C. looked like the logical option again. I enjoy being in school quite a bit because I love learning, especially now that I get to choose what I'm learning :) People will ask me what I want to do after I receive my bachelors degree. My responses have ranged from "have babies" to "probably get a part-time job." I have completely strayed from the idea of a "career". In fact, I don't even think Luke has a specific career in mind. I have been given a wonderful opportunity to learn at a school who's professors believe in God and have strong morals. I hope to learn as much as possible so I can in return teach our children. Not, of course, just about the world, but about God and His amazing plan to bring us back to heaven to be with Him forever. And I can't wait to do so.
Have a happy week!
My favorite things about having a place of our own: (I know, incorrect grammar...)
my own kitchen :)
We're on the third floor, which I realize has its advantages and disadvantages (like moving all your stuff up to it) but it's quiet and I love our balcony. Right now its only occupant is a lonely little aloe plant. I hope to fill it with a lot of plants to establish my own little garden.
Being able to decorate! We already painted all the walls but I have great plans that will somehow involve stencils, more paint and some carefully chosen Bible verses (I will probably avoid Leviticus. Just sayin').
We are so incredibly blessed and have plans to have lots of people over this next school year!
That's all for now ;)
Luke and I made it back here last Thursday. We have enjoyed our time at his house, but alas it is time to move on. Monday we will begin to move into our apartment. First we will paint and probably wait a day or two until we actually stay there.
I am very excited for us to have our own place :) We plan to have a lot of our college friends over during the school year.
There are a lot of new things happening for me. A new husband and a new name. A new living arrangement, in an apartment building. A new phone and new number. A lot of new gifts to use. A new life to live everyday.
In some ways I do feel like a new person. I have a lot of different responsibilities and concerns. I have a new job. Not only am I responsible for taking care of myself, but also my husband. So far it has been exciting and rewarding. We take care of each other very well.
This next school year is going to be very busy, yet I am so excited for it! I am taking 16 hours, 13 of which are upper division. I will also be the president of Y.W.T.O. Last year I was Vice President and it was a great learning experience so I am very excited about this year. I will be interning in the Admin. building as a job, calling prospective students and talking to them about coming to F.C. I will also be in Alpha Club, helping the freshman move in and with orientation week and then helping out with different events throughout the year. Luke will probably have a lighter school load than me, but he will be keeping busy with S.I., being president of Sowers and also being in Alpha Club.
There are many things to be concerned with right now. With becoming independent, we have a lot of responsibility we didn't have as just college students. Yet I still feel a peace that no one could explain unless they believed and trusted in Almighty God. Knowing He will take care of us no matter what is the greatest blessing one could ever ask for.
