I went to Las Vegas with my family two weeks ago it was a well needed vacation. There are so many fun things to do, so Christians don’t worry…you don’t have to gamble to have fun!
I’ve been very busy lately with a full time job (that involves playing with kids so, it is the perfect summer job…kids are so cute and fun!), taking a college summer class (nutrition) for nursing, and keeping up with piano and music theory. And most importantly, twice a week I have Japanese tutoring…
Speaking of Japanese leads me to my really big announcement that I’ve been hinting at for the past few months.
I’M GOING TO JAPAN!!!!!
Yep, you’ve read right. I’m going to Japan. I’ll be there for a whole semester so, about 4 months.
I was going to tell you my back story and how much struggle and perseverance it took for me to accomplish this dream of mine, but I’ll save that for another post because it goes a lot deeper than just going to Japan and it requires some vulnerability on my part. It might be a private post.
So, as I embark and prepare for this new journey along with everything else coming up in these next few months, I kindly ask for your prayers:
- God’s guidance and His will to be done
- That I can be a light for Christ in a primarily atheistic and Buddhist/Shinto country
- That as I continue to study the Japanese language, that new study habits and techniques open up to me
- I do well in my nutrition class and preparation for my nursing career
- That my family is safe and won’t stress too much while I’m in Japan
God, you know the desires in my heart, but above all else, let your will be done. Amen.
Next week is finals week and I have to finish a lab report for human physiology!!
I have two exciting announcements to share, but I’ll only share one (the other one is really big so, I’m going to wait for that one).
I’m going to Las Vegas and San Diego (again) with the family!!
I’m so looking forward to a vacation and once exams are over, I’m going to update a new post on “A New Shade of Feminine,” my feminity blog for black women (but other women are welcome as well).
Expect more frequent posts in the future.
It has been a while and I’ve been home for about two weeks now.
I want to thank God for getting me through my final exams and this semester. Since my classes are filled with science, philosophy, and math, they are difficult.
But He got me through.
When I arrived home I was just so happy to be done and finally able to spend time with my family.
Not to mention starting January, I will begin another internship at a prestigious clinic. Sometimes I doubt if I really want to have a health profession, if the late night studying and lack of sleep with bountifulness of stress is really worth it.
But it is, if this is God’s will.
I just thank God that He has gotten me through, my family is safe, and I just pray that everyone has a happy Christmas.
Due to my (sometimes) controversial posts, I’m contemplating on whether or not I should change my blog to private or just password protect some of my posts.
I will most likely go with the later.
This is not because I’m afraid of opposing opinions or views, but because I want to protect my identity when it comes to these type of posts.
As you know, liberals can be very vicious and don’t have any qualms butting in and ruining somebody’s livelihood. I’m just trying to protect my future.
Anyway, just expect to see some changes in a few days (or hours).
P.S. If you would like to know the password to some of my posts and you are already a follower, just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
