It’s Been a While….

So it’s been over a month since I’ve blogged, and I am ashamed.  I’ve recently been writing the old fashioned way — in a journal — and so I’ve been neglecting ye olde WordPress.

I just got back from my final Spring Break as an undergrad on Sunday and it’s a little weird.  It was odd to leave my parents house knowing that the next time I would be coming back not as someone who lived there but as a visitor…now that’s a transition.   Spring Break, however, was fabulous regardless of the staunch realization that I’m becoming a grown up.  I got to see most of the people that I hold of real importance in my life.  Over the last few months, I’ve really come to realize who the people that truly care about me are.  And even though I don’t get to see them often I know that my Omaha friends are ones that I will love dearly forever and who will always love me back.  I wish I could just carry them around in my pocket.  Ok, so that’s a little weird, but I think you get what I mean.

Had an interview at the end of February with the Air Force for a civilian job opportunity.  I still have yet to hear anything back, but I’m keeping my hopes up.  Civilian employment with any branch of military is an who different playing field and so it could be a while and I expect that.  But it is my number one choice which puts me in a pickle because, clearly, I have to keep applying for jobs as to not get stuck without one but at the same time I don’t want to be put in the position of accepting a job without having heard back from the AF.  But, I’m keeping faith that I’ll get the job that I’m supposed to and it’ll be where I’m supposed to be and where God wants me.

Well I suppose that’s enough for now, hopefully there will be more soon.

New Year New Title Set



So I’ve decided that the “Bekah v. _____” title set is so 2007 and it’s 2008 and thus, I have retired it.

So today I went to Yorktown Beach in Yorktown, VA and I was basically reminded that it’s still my favorite place, and I”m not sure why. I mean, it’s not a particularly hot or exotic destination, it’s just something about the beach, the people, and the surrounding town that I just love. But today was perfect. Perfect weather, perfect company, perfect place, and perfect bare feet in perfect ocean water. It all made for a very happy Bekah.

Bekah v. Searcy, AR

There are two things you can always count on in Searcy, Arkansas – 1) the burned out second “F” and the “H” in Waffle House sign and 2) a strike at the Kohler plant. I’ve been coming here for years to visit my grandparents and somehow those two things always manage to make themselves present, at least, if at no other time, for my visits to make it feel as though I never left.

Fall Break is here and I have retreated to the outskirts of the aforementioned town until Sunday morning. And do not be mistaken, the word “break” is nothing but a con. I will be catching up on homework, sleep, and oh yes, I’ve brought my actual job with me. Hurray for mobile offices, I suppose. Oh well, at least I get paid, right? So break doesn’t sound too exciting, but in all honesty, I think that’s what I need – boredom. I’ve had too much excitement thus far this semester, I need to spend an weekend unconnected to the world which may prove as a problem since I have to put in the research proposal for Bateman tomorrow. Hrrmmm…I guess I’ll have to find that mysterious coffee shop with the Wi-Fi in the morning. I am however, hoping to catch up on some LEISURE reading and there will probably be the obligatory, yet welcomed shopping trip with the grandparents.

Well I’m off. It’s leisure reading time. Cult of the Amateur here I come…

Just because the wine bottle has a pretty label doesn’t mean the wine will have a pretty taste. $10 literally down the drain.

Except if you ask us to make jell-o eggs, those didn’t turn out so…whole. But they tasted yummy!
