I've been bad...

So I've definitely been a bad blogger and bloggee lately. For about the past 3 weeks I've completely ignored blogspot.com. I wish I had grand reasons like I was doing homework, creating wonderful jewelry, painting new works of art, saving children in a small village in Africa... but unfortunately, none of that would be true. I've just been lazy, and in a funk lately. Let's call it a Lazy Funk.

I've reached that point in my 20s where I feel I don't belong in the college world anymore, but I also feel that I don't necessarily belong in the corporate world either. I haven't finished my Bachelor's degree yet and that's frustrating. It wouldn't be as frustrating if we had stayed in Oklahoma since I would probably be finished by now, but I'm glad we're here so I can't be upset about that. But when we moved to Texas from Oklahoma and I transferred from UCO to Texas Tech, I went from 120 credit hours to 66. That's right, 66. I went from being a senior with one semester to graduate to being about a second semester sophomore. That takes a lot of the mojo out of a girl. I don't want to give up, but I also don't know what I want.

Speech Pathology sounds like a grand career. I think I would be good at it, I think I would like it, I think I would like the money and stability... but then again, would I have time to create things like I do now? Would I have time to follow Joey and the youth group around when I wanted to? The answer to the second one is yes. The answer to the first one is... I don't know. But what doesn't sound good about SP is spending the next 4 to 5 years in school. Possible 6 years if I don't pick up the pace a little bit. Do I really want to be in school until I'm 30?

I'd like to have kids soon, do I really want to have kids and still be in school? But then again, can I keep the job I have now and have kids? Is that possible? I dont' know what's possible anymore... I really don't. I don't know any advisors or anyone at Tech that can help me get going in a direction, even if I knew what direction I wanted to go.

And maybe my desire to have children is a little selfish. Maybe I'm just thinking about what I want and not what would be in the best interest of Joey and I financially and even in the best interest of the child. But then again, isn't it in the best interest of the child to be loved? To be raised in a loving home, by good parents set on raising their children right? If so, then we've got the best interest of the child in mind. We also have our parents in mind. Joey and I are both the youngest in our families and our parents aren't getting any younger. We'd like to have children now so they can have a relationship with both sets of grandparents while the grandparents still have good years left.

I'm at a loss. I'm usually very well-planned, very organized, but for once in my life I really have NO idea what I want to do, what I should do, what I can do, or what I will do. All of these worries have weighed me down so much that I've just been in a lazy funk. I don't want to go to school, because I'm not sure I see the point of it right now. But I don't want to quit because I couldn't live with myself if I quit for no reason. And right now I don't have a reason. I haven't even been painting or working on jewelry because I'm not sure why I'm doing that. It's not like I'm selling anything on Etsy. I did well at the art show this month so maybe that will kick start me again. But who knows? Who really knows?

So for now, I'm trying to give all these worries to God. I'm putting faith in Him that He will lead me where He wants me. If He wants us to have a child soon, then He will bless us with that. If He wants me to stay in school and be a Speech Therapist, He'll put people and circumstances in my life to make that happen. I have to relinquish my control of my life because it's not really my life.

So God, here You go. Do with me what You will. I'm letting go.

Love,

Regina

I'm in a Treasury!

I finally made it into a Treasury that wasn't curated by me. Lol. I would LOVE it if people would visit this Treasury. It includes only shops with under 10 sales. I wonderful idea! :)
