I know it's been forever since I have posted anything on here....but that's mostly because I was in the middle of a bunch of things that I couldn't really talk about. Now, however, I can.
I am going to West Virginia University in the fall for grad school.
In being completely honest, I'll have to admit that WVU was not my first choice. It wasn't even my second choice. But it is without a doubt the BEST choice.
1) They want me. They were so excited about my resume and the possibility of my coming there that I got a little punch drunk off of it. It's hard to not want to be somewhere when people really want you there.
2) This is where the Lord wants me. How do I know? I asked. How else do I know? He took the decision out of my hands and made it the only option. I am supposed to go to WVU and that is that.
3) It feels right. I didn't know it would, but now that things are falling into place, it really does feel right.
So there. I'm moving to Morgantown, West Virginia. I'll be there in July, so I'll be working before school starts. Which brings me to the rest of it. I'll be working with the WVU track, cross country, swimming, and diving teams. I know, perfect, right? Not even funny how perfect this place will be for me.
Is it near a big city? No. Do I need a big city? No......but they are nice. I am near cities, which works enough for me.
So I'm moving. Again. But it'll be good. And if you guys are going to be my friends through all this, you need to know one thing: West Virginia University is in West Virginia. Not Virginia, West Virginia. They are two separate and distinct states. I will not be in WestERN Virginia, I will be in WEST Virginia. Get the picture? Get the difference? It's a big deal for West Virginia. So get it right!
Also occurring in my life recently: Jenny got engaged. WOOT! I know, right? Craziness. But Christian is a cool guy and they are insanely perfect for each other, so I am seriously all for it. Like it was up to me anyway, but whatever. So I'll be back in the LAF in August for the wedding, and I am stoked.
The other major event, which happened a mere 7 hours after the aforementioned one, was that the twins came. Quinn and John Thomas are the most beautiful babies ever, and I love them. They are healthy and fun and complete our family. For the time being. You know how these things work. Anywho, I'd like to see them more, but work and distance makes it hard, and I'm moving to West Virginia, so it's gonna get worse. I don't know if I can take this! Ugh.
Funny irony: all three events listed here occurred within 13 hours of each other. Literally. I am not exaggerating at all. Almost exactly 13 hours. Craziest weekend ever.
Basically, adventures are on the horizon. Tackling them, one by one, should be very interesting.
