Summer News:

Well, school starts back up in a week and a half--and i can hardly wait! I wish it was this Wednesday rather than next!
I'm entering my last week at the clinic. Strange. I feel like I'm shutting a huge door to an old season of my life-not a bad one at all! But I can sense like He's opening and closing doors all over the place. So many new things!
And He's pushing me into new relationships-which is so necessary and SOOO much fun!
I just have to confess, I've been pretty bad! I've only finished two books this summer =( yikes!
You'd never guess which ones either. Haha... prepare to laugh:
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carrol
and... Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
So... kind of three. But still, "I am ashamed."
But... right now, I'm a little over half way through The Overton Window by Glenn Beck. I had forgotten what it was like to be "in" a book. I think this must be what being in a relationship is like. When I am "in" a book, I can't think of much else. I would rather read than eat or sleep (two of my absolute favorite activities). I have to talk to other people about the book. I plan my whole day on "how can i find 20 minutes to read a bit more?" Basically, I fall in love with the book.
And I forgot what that feels like... until this book. I love it!

Alright... I'm going to stop talking now. haha... goodnight lovelies!
What have you read this summer?
i have never been one to be really interested in economics... i mean, i knew that its an important issue--it just seemed too complex and not really my thing.

But... I'm getting really excited about learning about economics! "Yah-weird!"
Right now I'm loving reading the Overton Window by Glenn Beck and I'm reeeeallly excited to see Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. This is all bizarre for me.

*I just need to insert a little explanation. Wall Street has a huge emotional pull for me. Ok, not only did Michael Doulgas recently get diagnosed with throat cancer; but Shia LaBeouf and Carry Mulligan are a real life couple. How cute is that?

Anyways... so on top of these two things, we have a conference coming up at church that I am getting so excited for. It's all about the economy and what God is doing. I just think it's really cool that God is opening other things to be excited for and interested in. Yay God!
