levelland, texas

a small update on my life:

i am...

-really happy where i am right now. levelland is cool. i found the section of the city that doesn't look like it's from the 70's, so that was neat. and i like my job.

-constantly hanging out with people. i have to fight the temptation to introvert (not a verb) myself, because i am somewhat overwhelmed by all the people. but, they are really cool. south plains: cooler than your average junior college. i definitely am struggling to find the balance of people to non-people time. sorry if i've back-burnered you (if you don't live in levelland). i'm learning.

-being introduced to a lot of cool music. probably because south plains has a fantastic music school (who knew?)

-learning a lot about the Lord. i want my nature to be more like His nature. but, sadly (or happily...?) i'm learning that i still have a lot more of my nature than His nature in me. it takes work.

-enjoying living on my own. my mom said i would, and she was right. and my apartment is growing on has ugly shag carpet and a window unit. other than that, it's great. although, in my 22 days of being here, i think i've had about 5 nights without a guest. i had a japanese student staying with me until she could get her housing lined out. she was pleasant, though. and now she lives 2 buildings down.

i haven't taken one picture since i came here. but as soon as i do, i will post some. i keep telling myself that once i clean my apartment and get it all set up, pictures will be taken. so...feel free to take bets on when that will happen.

ok...thanks for reading.
