I am officially moved into my new apartment in Fort Myers. I have made multiple trips to Target and Walmart (both which happen to be perfectly located) to get a few odds and lamps. They had NO overhead lighting, except for the dining table light.

Did you know lamps are expensive... and so is toilet paper, and paper towels, and laundry detergent and dish detergent and cable and internet. It's just so overwhelming -- especially with no current income.

Ok, off my soapbox..I don't have internet yet, I'm still looking for the best deal, so I will put up pictures when I can get my own internet fast enough to upload.

It's looking reallllly fantastic. My mom and I found an end table, coffee table, leather sofa, and leather chair from a friend for $100... It was for sure a steal. I also found a table for dinners on craigslist for $125 (originally from Pier 1) another steal. I also have a walk-in closet... which, I've decided, is a very bad thing, cuz it makes it seem like i don't have as many clothes as I know I do... :)

Anyways, Pray for me and my move and adjusting and stuff. Thanks!!

3 years

It's been 3 years yesterday since the death of a very special friend of mine named Anderson P. Maxey. He was 17 years old.

I stayed up late last night not being able to sleep and thinking to myself "Wow, that was 3 whole years ago..." I've gone through a senior year of high school and finished my first 2 years of college, all that he missed.

Alot has changed since he died. A group of friends that was once rock solid slowly diminished until we all went our separate ways -- he was our common bond.

Everything happens for a reason. I am still sad when I think about what used to be and what no longer is, but I know that it happened for a reason. The reason may not be visible to me, but he could have spiritually saved someone's life though his physical death.

God makes everything happen for a reason -- even though sometimes it seems tragic.

Life requires some huge decisions.

I'm not sure if I'm ready for them...
I am more sure and ready on some things than I've ever been or will be, but some other things... Gosh, I just don't know.

I wonder if these decisions should be based on logic or feelings, perhaps some of both? I'm not sure I can trust feelings, but logic! that never fails. Should other people be involved in these decisions, I mean, it is my life. I know that they can help, but they aren't living it....

How do I know that I'm not missing out on some fantastic opportunity because I decided to "stay put?" How do I know that what I've gone or decided is the right choice, ESPECIALLY if you've got something great...

Ugh, I just don't know :(
