A Whole Lot of Crazy

*Update:  You may as well just call me a big quitter because after all this, I'm back on Facebook.  I can't seem to "break up" with it due to the contact I have with my college friends, so I did do a lot of cleaning up by hiding and unfriending people.  Just wanted to make sure you know I didn't accomplish the impossible afterall!*

I have so much to write about, but no time to do so now.  Let me just cut to the chase and state that I do believe I'm going through a midlife crisis of sorts.  Good grief.  I'm not ready for this yet.  You know, I thought I would at least be in the full swing of menopause BEFORE the first pangs of MLC (short for Midlife Crisis from this point on).  I am all over the place.  Let see . . . I worked at Starbucks for 2 months, I applied to 3 different colleges, I nearly sold my flute, and I was ready to quit my church.  Totally freaking out.  Now that that has all passed, I'm mentally exhausted and feeling very contemplative over my recent experience.  The best thing to come from all of this?  I finally permanently deleted my Facebook account.  

I came to the harsh realization that I would never meet my writing goals or Biblical studies goals as long as I had the diversion of FB.  It was time.  And I'm currently detoxing, so I'll let you know how that's going eventually.  In the meantime, stay tuned for a quirky story detailing my adventure at Starbucks, my full freak-out mode regarding college and flute, as well as the first in a series of study ideas for those seeking to increase their Biblical Literacy.  Exciting times, I tell ya!  MLC may have some advantages . . .   In the meantime, enjoy my adorable dog.  She has the right idea, and I could learn a thing or two from her.
