Sam and I are both attending driving school. We attend class three evenings out of the week, and it's quite wearisome. If we still lived in Arkansas, I would have my license by now. But we don't, we live in Illinois, and so I have to spend thirty-six (?) hours in the classroom, and I have to drive for six hours with my instructor. After completing the driving course, I have to drive on my permit for nine months and I have to clock fifty hours of driving, ten of which must be after dark. Lovely, no? Needless to say, it is very time-consuming.
We've also signed up for classes at the community college, and we'll start on those in January. Currently, I'm headed towards a graphic design degree. I'm taking Drawing I and Speech on campus, and Web Page Design and Computer Art online. I'm so excited! It's going to be quite fun. I've met two other girls at youth group who are also taking classes at the community college, so that's also exciting. It's hard not to have old friendships, but it's less hard when you get a chance to start new ones.
The house is a constant project. Currently, we're re-finishing the living room floor, which means the house is filled with fumes and everything is squashed and claustrophobic. It will be beautiful when it's done though! After we settle into the re-modeled living room and dining room, I'll be moving into a new bedroom. We still have quite a lot of boxes in storage at our old house, and I'm excited to pick them up. I haven't done any projects or crafts for three months! And I'm missing my books. Really missing my books.
Speaking of books, I've had my library card for two months now, and that blasted library probation is up! I'm overjoyed :) I can use the inter-library loan now, and I can request almost anything! Speaking of which: have any book recommendations? I'm up for anything. Deep and thoughtful books, mysteries, memoirs and autobiographies, interesting nonfiction, fast-paced young adult . . . anything! To be quite honest, I'm having way too much fun thinking up all the different books that I can read ;)
