God is Good!

  • Posted on August 21, 2013 at 10:00 AM

I rarely indulge in spiritual or religious announcements on this blog, but this time I simply cannot resist. As you may be aware, my family has been struggling lately. Things got especially difficult last month.

But after the darkness, there is light!

For starters, I have been admitted to Rutgers University and I will soon be starting my fall classes! I will be studying Public Administration and learning how to create the nonprofit organization that is taking shape in my mind. I’m very excited!

I’m also seeing more freelancing opportunities and earning more income. I’m at the point in my career where I feel like I’m holding one of those Magic 8 balls with the triangle telling me, “All signs point to yes.” With that thought, though, comes a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy flashback—all I need now is to discover what the question is!

More than anything, I have to say that God is good, because I’m in much better spirits. Whatever comes, He will see us through. Along the way, we will know the joy He gives us. For now, that’s more than enough!

And, of course, the boys’ school is starting up soon. Willy is entering high school. Life is going to have a whole new normal for us to deal with. And I’m not even feeling anxious about it!

Waiting for Acceptance

  • Posted on August 7, 2013 at 10:00 AM

So, I’ve done everything I was supposed to do. I’ve officially applied to Rutgers graduate program to study Public Administration and nonprofit management. Now, I have to wait to find out if I’m going to get in and if everything that’s out of my control will happen in time for me to start this fall. Wish me luck!

In the meantime, I’m still waiting for a good job offer. Despite my preference for nonprofit work, I’ve expanded my job search to for-profit writing (i.e. marketing) opportunities, because I have more experience in that field and because there are simply more opportunities for marketers in my area at the moment. But I still have to wait for the right organization to offer me the right opportunity.

So, there’s a lot of waiting going on here. Waiting isn’t my strong-suit, but I’m learning patience. At least, the feelings of anxiety are lessening. That’ll have to pass for patience for now.
