New Year - New Things

Wow, I can't believe that we're already into February. Time flies by the older you get, I guess. Quite a bit has happened since my last post. The first, and most important, would be that I started school. I'm finally doing it!! It's very stressful, going to school 13 hours a week and working as close to 40 as I can - but I'm managing. I'm taking English Comp. I, Biology, Algebra, and Introduction to Education. The degree I'm pursuing is a BSE (Bachelors of Science in Education) with a major in Elementary Education. I've always wanted to teach, and now I'm finally going to be able to live that dream.

I've also taken on a new role at work. I'm now a project coordinator for Health Business Development - it's pretty much what I was doing before, but only dealing with the clinics and stuff. I do more analysis work and less of the assistant role, which is fun. It's a lot more work than I'm used to, and now that I'm in school - it can be a bit overwhelming. My old boss got relocated to California, and I'm now working with a woman that was reporting to my old boss. I'm happy though - as I adore my new boss. We get along so great together, and I enjoy her company very much.

Couple of weeks ago, I turned 25. Wow- I'm getting old.. LOL Got to take my birthday off, being that there was a couple of inches of snow on the ground which made school be out. That was a great chance for me to spend a couple of days relaxing and recouperating.

I've done a lot more research and studies on Wicca - and have really started getting involved with it. I'm working on building an alter, and I have a lot of new books to help me with trying some spells. I'm in the process of creating my own Book of Shadows, which is very exciting. The more I read, the more I love my new religion. It answers questions I've pondered for years, and allows me to search within myself. I've even wrote a paper about it for my English class, which is getting some good feedback.

Well, that's the update so far. Hopefully more soon. :)
