Hoping for a Better Year

I haven’t posted for a few months, so I guess it’s time for me to get everyone back up to date on what’s going on.

First of all I suppose I should start with the most significant news – our relocation to Pottertown! As of December 1st we’ve been living about seven miles east of Murray in the home that I grew up in. Though we can’t get pizza delivered all the way out here and shopping trips require an actual drive, the overall monthly savings we enjoy in regards to expenses are well worth it. We’ll most likely be living here until I finish school and can land a job that pays well enough that we can get our own house.

Speaking of jobs, it’s looking like my time at Captain D’s is once again coming to an end. I’ll hopefully be entering at Briggs & Stratton though the student program at Murray State by the middle of the month. I’m really looking forward to once again keeping a work schedule with consistent hours. Having a set routine helps me maintain stability in my life, which is something I can always use more of.

I suppose I should also mention how my first semester back at Murray State went. I regretfully failed out of every class I attempted, mainly because I stopped going after getting discouraged with how I was progressing. Maybe I took too many hours or maybe I just wasn’t as ready to be back as I thought I was. Either way, I’ll be at it again this Spring semester, but this time there’s no way I’m going to load 17 hours on myself again while trying to hold down a full-time job.

Since my last post we’ve celebrated several holidays and amassed many photographs. However, due to the recent server migration, our photographs are temporarily unavailable, but should return shortly with all the new additions.

I wish you all a prosperous new year. I know I could use a better one than 2004.
