Holla back East Side! It’s ya fave girl: E-money

I AM the worst kind of blogger out there. This time around it has been closer to a year since I last updated. Bad. So very bad! If I believed in New Year’s Resolutions I would make updating my blog a goal. As it is, I will commit today, Sunday the Something-something of December, to be a better blogger. (Laugh now, it will be 3 months before I think of this again).

I am so very thankful for the year 2008. You could not pay me enough money to re-live it, but all-in-all, I think it was a good year. Not an easy year, you understand, but I think I can look back on it all and say that it was full of lessons, hardship, loss, and growth. I’m looking forward to 2009. It seems silly, but I’m hanging on to the idea that a new year will mean new things and that I will be able to move on. And blog-land, moving on is important. I feel like I’ve been standing still for so many months now and the world is moving on. But I think I’m ready to start moving now too.

SPEAKING of moving: We’re moving! I think everyone knows that now because in my excitement I have told the entire world. Now that finals are over and I can detox from stress overload, I’m going to spend the next week packing and getting things ready. We’re crossing over from the East side. I think I’m actually really going to miss it. It’s forced me to be more aware of my surroundings and give more thought to safety. It’s really not a bad area of town, just different. Actually I’m going to miss it a lot. We’ve had some good times in this house… We’ve had the chance to meet and speak to a lot of interesting individuals.

I’m also going to be baking in this next week. I was thinking that maybe I would make a plate of cookies for each house of friends. We’ll see if I get that far, but I did already buy the plates, so I guess that’s some incentive…

This Christmas, or after Christmas, my family is going to Mississippi. We chose to forgo the trip at Thanksgiving because we were all too busy, so we are making room in between Christmas and New Years. I’m trying to think of fun things my family can get out and do instead of sitting around watching TV while in MS. Thus far I have come up with the following list:


That’s it. I was also thinking maybe ice skating, but I don’t know if they’ll have a rink out there. Anyways, something to think about over the next few weeks…

I know this post is getting long, but I was just re-reading my last post and had a few thoughts. 1) Still broke (broke) [Not really. God has blessed me. But I did end my relationship with Kanye]. 2) God is still preparing me for ministry. Even though the girls’ ministry didn’t work out the way we had hoped, God still worked in that and revealed much. I don’t know where or what I’ll be doing in the future, but I know that career-wise, I will probably do something service oriented. If God sends me back to Africa, I will probably pass out from excitement. My heart beats for that place and it would fulfill one of the deepest desires of my heart to see all of those beautiful faces and the red dirt there again.

Is it weird that I get anxious before I post something? Obviously I don’t do this often enough…
