So much to say...so little time.

I decided today that I'm definitely too weak to cop it in the corporate world.  Spiritually speaking.  I end up going two opposite ways...totally joining in and embracing the way they view or becoming extrememly introverted and shying away from even the most surface conversation.  If you are a Christian and you have the gift to be able to live out your faith boldly, and relevantly in the corporate world.... DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The rest of us can't, we need people called to that mission field as well.  Part of me wishes I was, and part of me is glad that I'm not.

I finally closed out my australian savings account today.  How funny is that.  I've been meaning to this whole time, but just never got around to it.  I bought a calling card today so I could check up on krys and I thought, hey I should call and get my money.  My hard earned $20.70 AUS.  Which is almost $15.00 US.  I must say I'm quite a fan of the exchange rate when it's coming this way.  At least it's better than it used to be.  But not as good as it used to be if you're going the other way.  So yeah in a couple days that money will be in my St. George account, which I still have my eftpos (debit) card for and I will desperately try not to spend it all in one place.  Actually that sounds like a nearly full tank of gas, so maybe I will spend it all in one place.  But then if you think about it, buying gas isn't really spending it all in one place cause you drive all around.  Riiiiiiiiiight.

So I did check up on krys...and leah, but only by default, not that I didn't want to...anyway.  I'm jealous, but my heart isn't hurting, which is good.  I think it's too excited for AZ.  Which will happen 2 weeks from tomorrow. yessssssssssssssssssssssssss.  Although i will say that I had a dream last night that I flew to Sydney.  It was weird cause my friend Kate got married, and so I felt that GOd said it was ok to go down there for that, but not to do anything or see anyone related to Hillsong.  Which was weird, since that's how I know Kate.  And in my dream, the flight was so fast, and I was flying with a guy.  Like he was with me, we were going together.  I dunno, it was a nice dream.
Oh so cute.  I was talking to the cute little aussie customer service girl at ING when I was closing out my account, and I gave her my new mailing address and she pronounced Mesa like meh-sah instead of may-sa, and Mesquite like mess-quit instead of mes-keet.  It was funny.  I laughed.  But not at her cause I felt bad...poor woman, I had to tell her I was from Texas.  I'm not from Texas.  But she probabaly got off and was like "I had a Texan on the phone".  And I probably sounded like one too, cause I do.  Sometimes. 

I bought my first car insurance policy today.  Very exciting.  I can't believe I've gone all these years of driving and never once had to pay my parents for insurance.  They are cool like that sometimes.  Either that or just forgetful.  I'm sure at some point they told me I would have to pay them something.  But hey, I'm not going to remind them right?  But yeah it was so super cheap and I can transfer is to AZ when I get there.  Something like $245 for 6 months.  I couldn't believe it. 

And on that note I think I"m going to go buy some more text books on half.com.  Woo hoo!  I think buying text books is equal to buying bridesmaid dresses.  You pay an exorbadant ammount of money for something you only use once.  Lame.
