This summer is coming to an end (maybe it technically has already, I don’t know). Its been a productive summer and a fun one. It’s been a busy summer with lots of work too. This summer I my realest job yet. What I mean by that is that this is the closest thing to a full time job I have yet. I work 40 hours a week, and will be doing so for the foreseeable future. While I’ve had a 40-hour-a-week job before. It’s only been in the summer. And, at the same time, this job is technically not full time since I am a contract employee. At this point it seems there is a good chance of having my contract extended or being brought on officially as a full-time employee.

My company (www.IHS.com) is developing a international operations center. This is essentially why we are right now, but the idea is that we will be larger and much more equipped to solve our colleagues problems almost immediately instead of escalating to another tier of support all the time. Hopefully this means there’s more opportunity for work. However, nothing like that in life is too sure. God may have other plans.

A few other significant things that have happened/been accomplished this summer are that Benjamin and I moved out for the first time ever, I learned to type on the Dvorak keyboard layout, I read George Orwell’s ‘1984’, made some new friends, and chose a new church.

I’m praying for God’s guidance and provision of wisdom as I make decisions in the future about what to do with my life. There are so many opportunities. Above all I pray that Gods will would be done (and I hope you’ll pray for me about this too) as that’s where I would be most joyful and most productive.

Thanks for reading,

Hello reader. I feel like I have some things that need writing, but unfortunately I can’t pin it down to anything in particular. So, I’ll just give you an update on what I’ve been up to and maybe even keep you till the end of the post.

Ever since arriving home and starting work I’ve been looking forward to moving out. I thought it might have happened sooner and thought it might have been later. But, I was definitely looking towards sooner. Well, after getting plenty of things situated here we’ve arrived at the end of summer and somehow my brother and I have worked our way into a pretty nice place at reasonable rent.

I know I just sounded like I’ve already moved in, but we haven’t yet. I think I’m just betraying my excitment at the plans. Soon, however, I can speak as if I have moved out since the plan is for that to happen this weekend. We are trying our best to do well something we’ve never done in quite this way. Yes, this is the first time we will be living on our own, for the most part. I believe that you can never fully be completely independant (unless you’re like this guy ). My brother is moving out for the first time, and I’m moving into an apartment for the first time, though I’ve moved into the dorms many many times. It’s going to be really interesting but exciting I anticipate.

Anyways, my thoughts are that I really love my family, but am really excited to be more independant. I love being on my own, something I’m sure I developed a taste for after being mostly independant at college. Family is awesome but sometimes there are times where (most people I’m sure) family is not awesome.

Well, family is back. Definitely not going to be able to concentrate on anything else worth reading.

Till next time,
Billy A.
