Hey ya'll. To my peeps in Jax:
I just want you to know how much I love you. I wish I could come see you more often. Or that you could all come see me! You could rent a beach house here in Virginia Beach and we could all jam out! Anyway...just wanted to update and let you all know what's up with me.
I am really happy. I love my job and I am meeting new people. My family is great to me and I am doing well living here.

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to jump on here real quick and let you know that life is good. I am happier than I have been in a really long time.

The reason?

God and I are chummy. I'm talking to Him every day (totally recommend it) and I know He is leading me where He wants me.

It's still a scary road - with a lot of possible hurt in the future. But I am confident I am loved and have been created as I am for a reason.

How cool is that?

I want you all to know that God loves you just as you are. And I love you all too.

you want me to WHAT on labor day?

Ok...so, I got a little story.

I washed and waxed my car on Saturday - it's gorgeous. Then I went to pull my motorcycle out of the garage to wash and wax it too. And I still had my wet flip flops on. I slipped. The bike started to fall over towards the wall. My finger got trapped between the handle bar and a shovel. It was there for almost two minutes. I yelled for help. I couldn't move my feet or my finger without risking a worse injury. My dad finally heard me and came running. He pulled the bike off my finger. Oddly enough, it was the crooked finger which I broke when I was 13 or so. It felt like I broke it again - but it was only badly dented in. It has since healed and I am now using it to type. Pretty sweet.

Tomorrow I have my funds test. We have had to memorize thiry nine fund names, initials and numbers. And the names are super long, e.g. Limited term tax-exempt bond fund of america. They will give us a blank sheet of paper and we have to write them all. I got it down. I was out to lunch today and telling a friend about the upcoming test. A girl at the table next to us heard me and asked if I work for American Funds. I said yeah and she continued to tell me I work for the best mutual funds company out there. I think she's right.

I told my manager I would like to get into training. I think I would make an excellent trainer. It suits my personality. We'll see how it goes. I am still enjoying my job - and tomorrow is jeans day. I'm super stoked about that one!

I miss Jacksonville - and I miss my friends. But I am glad to be here. My brother and I got to hang out today. And my whole family played rook tonight for a couple hours. Good times. Dad and I are going to start working out together.

It's past time for bed now. I'll check ya'll later!
