It's Fall!!!

I love the fall. The weather is beautiful here in Jackson today. I would really love to just lay outside all day...but I can't because I have work to do. Since my last post, I have completed my first round of tests. I did not do too bad. I need to keep working though because the classes are getting tougher. Geez procrastination is really trying to overcome me, but I can't let it!

Anyway, I have some exciting news. Last night, I found out that I am going to be the new Vice President for the Student Nurses Association at Union! I could not believe it! The position opened up and I applied a couple weeks ago after being encouraged to do so by my roommates (all of them are officers as well). I did not really think I would get it considering I'm new here, and I'm an underclassman. But...I was chosen. Sharon, my roommate who is the president, said she went over all the applications with the staff advisor. She said my name came up first because the advisor really liked my application. Sharon told her that I was dependable and kept the fact we're roommates on the down low so it would not look like she was biased toward me. I was still chosen by the advisor. I beat out 2 juniors, which is why I'm still shocked. Wow, God really works in mysterious ways. This was a great boost for me to be motivated and work hard. I want to fulfill my responsibilities as VP and as a student and succeed.

I got to go home this past weekend. I wasn't planning to originally, but I decided to go back for the first time since I moved to school. It was nice to be home and relax. I got to hang out with my brother and my mom a lot. My brother and I always have a lot of fun. We played the Beatles Rock Band and watched movies all weekend. He had homecoming on Saturday night and was even nominated for homecoming court. He didn't win, but I was psyched to hear of his nomination. My mom and I got to go out for Vietnamese at a new place we'd never been too that was good!

I have so much that I could write about, but time is not on my side so I better continue another time.

Much Love,

Thank you so much for your encouraging comment. I also found your card in the mail today. It felt so weird receiving mail from you when I used to get mail out of the box addressed to you. I miss you too. I wish you could be here as well so we could talk about life. Life is really weird, but I know it will get better. We just have to have faith.

I can't wait to see you soon. I'll talk to you later. Much love,
