No More Classes, No More Books, No More Teacher's Dirty Looks.......

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to write more on here. School has ended, and though I assumed I would have oodles of free time once that happened, that's not the case. I like it much better this way though--too much free time makes me miss people. And my life isn't so very crazy that I can't hang out with friends every so often. So it's all in all great.

Law school classes ended at the end of May, and my mediation class began the beginning of June and lasted two weeks. It was amazing. I had so much was just a wonderful reassurance that yes, this is what God wants me doing.

To that end, I have been applying to volunteer at various mediation centers, though have not yet heard back from any. Pray they contact me? I would like to start this as soon as possible...I'm awfully excited about it!

At the same time, I need money from somewhere. I've decided my dream career would be copyediting/proofreading, with mediation whenever I'm free. I've applied at magazines and newspapers, but am finding that most places use only one copyeditor, and already have the position filled. How disappointing! I won't give up though. I'm confident something will show up, or God will direct me elsewhere.

So, what happens this fall? What about school?

I came to a point recently where I could honestly say I wanted to do what God wanted me to, and if He wanted me back in school I would happily go. I didn't get a sign He did--in fact I got quite the opposite. I truly feel I am done. I don't know why He had me go this year, but He did, and perhaps someday it will make sense.

For now I'm content to move forward, find mediating and/or editing jobs, and enjoy a life free of homework, tests, and all things legal...and filled with the love of friends and family. Oh people, how I've missed spending time with you!
