My first week in DC.

Alright, here is a phlog of my first week in Washington D.C.

I got here on Saturday the 31st, but that was not super interesting. I mostly got unpacked and tried to find a place to watch the Boise State football game, which was harder than I'd have thought. ANd suddenly I don't want to remember that Saturday any more.

Anyways, I live in an apartment with 5 other guys. I share a room with two. Here is my part of it:

I keep clothing on my bed.
Dressers are cool, but washed out photos are cooler.
There is more!

Well, it certainly has been quite a while since I last blogged...Life just keeps going and doesn't really leave much time... at least that has how it has been for me :)

After I graduated last May I spent the summer working with JEMfriends and I was the banquet coordinator for JEM's 2012 Fundraising Banquet. Before school started up again, I was able to take a kind of "Senior Trip" with my Aunt. We went over to New England for a week and then spent a few days in Seattle and Portland. (To read about those adventures visit my other blog As School started up again, I started teaching again. The first semester I taught 5 hrs a week but here in the 2nd Semester I am teaching 11 hrs a week. I teach Reading, Writing, Math, Science and History to the K-2 group at our has been fun... most of the time :) ;) I  was the Assistant Varsity Coach for Volleyball at Covenant Academy and the Assistant Junior Varsity Coach during the Basketball Season. I have also been playing volleyball with a group of friends via City League. We just finished our Winter Season tournament (finishing 4th :)) and then Spring games start next week :) Besides all this I have been keeping busy with family activities and other general life fun :)

Today as I was thinking about this past year and all the changes that happened. I realized that I am right were God wants me. My life right now is not really how I thought it was going to be, but now that I am living it I realize that I am content and I am content because God is in control. Over the past few weeks I had begun to feel more and more overwhelmed but as I looked to God instead of myself I just felt continual peace and contentment. This is one of the Basic lessons of life... it is not super hard to learn, we just need to be reminded of it from time to time as the things in life start to crowd in on us :)

Hope you enjoyed this little update :)

I would love to hear what is going  on in your life....

In Christ,
