So far, my classes are going really well. I am getting mostly A's in my Spanish class and I am re-learning a lot. I have a test coming up next week in communications that I have yet to study for, but I am confident that I will do well. My time in Atlanta is almost up, which is both sad and exciting all at the same time, but I know this move is for the best. I have had a slight misstep with my W2, but hopefully that will all work itself out, and I can still get my Great Dane I so desperately want. I will be keeping you updated on the progress of my puppy. (Mom, I know you will be checking back frequently for that!!) Once again, pray that God would show me which store I am supposed to transfer to, that I would find a place that would allow me to have my beloved Great Dane, and that I would make lots of lasting friendships here in Augusta. Oh, and that I would find a good church family!
Did you ever wonder what kind of dog Scooby Doo is? Well, Scooby is a Great Dane. That's why he was so big. Well, I have always loved Great Danes- not because of Scooby, but because I love big dogs. They are just HUGE!!!!! I have a friend who has 4 of them. She said that any time they take them to the park, it looks like 4 horses running around. Maybe the fact that they look like horses has something to do with my love of Great Danes, because I always wanted one of those too, but never got one. Hmmmm. Anyways, now that I am about to officially be living on my own, I have been thinking about getting a dog. Of course, I wanted a Great Dane, but most places, if they allow pets, have a weight or size limit to the pets you can have, so I had pretty much ruled out having a Great Dane. However, my friend Brooke, the one with 4 of them, told me the other day that one of her dogs is having puppies and I should get one. Naturally, I was ecstatic! BUT I can't get one right now because I am not officially on my own just yet. I am still driving back and forth between Atlanta and Augusta for school and work, not to mention I am living with my Grandmother. It would not be very fair to the dog for me to travel so much, and certainly not fair to my Grandma for me to bring in this massive dog. SO I have to wait. That's ok though! Brooke and her husband are planning another litter for the fall that will be ready for Christmas. Soooooooooooo Merry Christmas to ME from ME!!!!! In the meantime, I have to put away the money for not only the dog, but also the initial vet costs, standard pet medications, food, supplies, etc. That's ok though. I'm very excited about getting this enormous edition to my family of ME, and I know I can make this work. Please pray that I find a place that allows me to have pets AND that I won't have to worry about my pet being stolen!
So far back at school, I have had one test, a quiz, and another quiz tomorrow. I have another test next week, and another one coming up towards the end of the month. Welcome back to college!!
Other than that, all is good. I don't have too much longer to be driving back and forth between Augusta and Atlanta for work. While I am very sad to leave my friends in Atlanta, I am more than ready to be here in Augusta full-time. This is a new beginning for me. A fresh start. I'm anxious to meet new people, make new friends, have a normal routine, etc. Change normally scares me, and this one kind of does too, but, as I have blogged before, change is necessary for growth.
