I now have all the time in the world...

...but it's still not enough.

No, I'm not dead. I just don't have an Internet connection unless I leave my house and venture to one of this city's libraries. And the usual long list of things to do when online usually keeps me from having time to write here on my ol' blog.

I'm doing well. Fort Collins is a great city and I love living here. I just wish I could find a job (still looking, no luck so far with paying positions). Currently, I'm interning at the Fort Collins Weekly 6-7 hours each week, which is wonderfully fun but, unfortunately, doesn't pay me in anything other than experience. Experience is good though.

It is still strange to not be taking classes. I'm on campus a few times a week (to use the library's Internet, of course) and I find myself completely mind-boggled at the fact I don't actually go to school here anymore. So very strange.

Wedding stuff is coming along. Christopher and I got a lot of stuff done over break and I'm supposed to be working on the rest of it, but I can't find the motivation to do so. The fact that the big event is still 4.5+ months away isn't good enough motivation. I want time to go by faster. I want a job. Something else to do besides miniscule planning. Oh well. God knows best. I just need to focus on getting some of this stuff done.

Life is good, though. I'm enjoying being independent for the first time in my life. My room is small (10x7.5ft), but just big enough to be cozy. I'm enjoying my roommates and the cat (who has managed to figure out that if he hurls himself at my door enough times, he can get into my room). I'm enjoying the Weekly and my bus trips to campus to use the Internet. I'm enjoying eating my own food and spending time with the guys at their house. It is somewhat strange, though, as everything is merely a transition and, come June, everything will change again (albeit permanently). I'm looking forward to June, which is why I think I'm not fully enjoying this stage of life - simply because it is a transition and I so desire the transition to be over and done with.

But, again, God knows what He's doing and I can rest in that. Now, I must respond to some e-mails and then catch the bus with Christopher. All the time in the world...
