Thank You God and All of my Guardian Angels Above

    At 9:46 a.m. this morning my whole world completely lit up with the arrival of one email. An email that I had been stressing over and patiently awaiting since last Friday night. Even though I am not the most religious person in the world, I have been praying to God the past few weeks regarding my current living situation. I cannot even begin to count the number of times over the past month or so that I have had to tell myself, "God will never give you more than you can handle." And so, my prayers were answered today when I got "the email" telling me that I would be able to move into a single room next semester. I was literally shaping the whole walk back to Currier from ABW to sign the paperwork. I just couldn't believe that after all this time, the one thing that I really wanted for Christmas came early. I don't know how, but somehow, someway, those who are looking out for me from above pulled some major strings to make this happen. And for that I will be forever grateful. At the sight of this email my stress levels dropped tremendously and I finally felt ready and able to tackled the rest of the semester.
    I know that the process is far from over, as I cannot move in until the very fast day/night of finals week. But, I can't complain. I honestly had given up hope and felt defeated just 24 hours ago at the idea of having to remain in my current living situation for another semester. Words cannot describe how much of a positive impact this will have on the rest of my sophomore year and just my attitude in general. The thing I think I am looking forward to most is being able to go to bed as early as I want and mainly just being able to focus on me and improving my life without some else's actions impacting my day-to-day life. I seriously, never realized how stressful living with someone else could be until I started college, and it's safe to say that I don't plan on doing that kind of thing again any time soon.
    Another thing I am excited about for this new upcoming semester is living on a floor with a laundry room (no more climbing two flights of stairs just to do laundry, yay!) and getting a chance to hopefully make some new friends. I know I am a self-proclaimed "selectively social" person, but I am going to try and make an effort to get to know people on my new floor. They can't be as bad as the bitches that were on my floor freshman year, that's for sure. I am also grateful that I will have my pal Larry there to help me pack up my things and move into my new room. He has been so supportive through this entire process and very generous in agreeing to pay the extra $900 a semester to live in a single room. I really couldn't ask for a better Dad, even though we don't always see eye-to-eye on everything.
    Now, I just hope that the rest of this week and next week flies by! Seriously, I don't know how much longer I can stand living with an immature and disrespectful person. I don't hate her, not by a long shot. It's just that after living with someone for this long and dealing with all of their quirks you start to really get sick of it. Anyhow, I will survive. Looking forward to lunch with Larry tomorrow and then dinner with Lane on Wednesday! Life is Good. :)
