My first blog in a long time

This is going to be short because it is almost 4:30 in the morning and I'm getting tired! I haven't blogged in quite some time and forgot how much I need to sometimes! I have so much going on in my life right now that I don't know where to begin! I guess I just discovered something about myself that I never realized. I answered the random question at the bottom of my profile when I was creating this. I've loved lighthouses for quite some time now and you can even see part of my collection in the background of my picture. The random question was "Your people want to make a statue in your honor. What will it be made out of and what victory will it commemorate?" and I answered: "a lighthouse, because I'm always reaching out to help others in any way I can, the victory would be that I shared with others the love of Christ through my life." I really need to work on the victory part I don't openly proclaim Christ everyday at work. People have told me they can see Christ in me by my smile, but sometimes I wonder! I work nights at Burger King and working with the public is quite an experience! It has it's good and bad days. I work in drive-thru most of the time and occasionally on front counter, so I am constantly around the public. I'm usually not that talkative to customers unless they come in everyday and I have gotten to know them well enough that I will talk to them. I know several customers in that aspect, but it's very few. Work is my only outreach to the public on a daily basis. After the customers leave, I usually cut up with the crew and a different side of me comes out. A side that most of my church friends would be surprised at. Being at work, I tend to be more open about things than I should sometimes and have gotten myself in trouble before because of it. I need to get back to reading my Bible on a daily basis and working on my schooling so that I can get away from Burger King. I want to be a child psychologist one day or a social worker with children. I'm taking lessons with Penn Foster (www.PennFoster.edu) to get a Child Psychology Certificate. I've been wanting to get away from Burger King for 5 years and am still there. I've got to learn to stop procrastinating so that I can accomplish my dreams! Being alone during the day at home is hard, too, because there is no one around to tell me to stop watching TV or chatting online. It's easy to fall into a rut and forget about the important things. I said this was going to be short, but I began to babble as always, but have got myself thinking. Now if I can just go to sleep!! :)
