I'm so happy with my new phone. I'm loving all the super cool apps! I have a weakness for new things but I never want my possessions to have any hold on my life. After I bought my phone I sat in my car, thanked God for allowing me the ability to purchase such an item, and then prayed I would never let material things have a hold on me. I might have taken it too far by telling the Lord if he wanted to I would break my phone right then and there just to prove my items don't control me. Thankfully the Lord didn't ask that of me. Whew! Still loving it and I just wanted to share.This is a picture of me, trying to take a picture of my phone. Lol. Came out weird.

Let's say I have all the money in the world. My family and loved ones are happy. My life is filled with laughter, fun, and hard work that is meaningful to me. I'm able to spread God's love to everyone I meet. Even if all this stuff came true nothing would be better than having God in my life. This world is not my home and the only way I can truly get back to the place I belong is through Jesus Christ.
That just hit me today and it is a happy realization.

My mom and I were having our usual argument…that isn't really an argument. It is just us talking until one of us has the clever last word. Finally, I had the clever last word! Here is how the conversation went:
Mom: Leaving dishes in the sink over night is one of my biggest pet peeves.
Mom: Because I don't like to wake up in the morning to a sink full of dishes
Me: Just don't look at the sink
Mom: I can't not look at the sink. I have to look at the sink. It is a pet peeve!
Me: You know what my pet peeve is?
Me: Terrorist. Let's compare pet peeves and see whose is worse.

Yesterday on July 5th at 8 am my two week notice for Dairy Queen was final and I started my new job in Regent's Admissions office! That's right everyone! I work in an office now!
It was so great. I do transcripts which seemed crazy confusing at first but I think I am getting it down. Yesterday I did computer work, I stapled papers, I filed names, I shreded documents, I called other colleges and universities, I made copies, I learned how to use a fax machine!
Yes world I know how to use a Fax Machine! Bahahah
I know some of you may be thinking...Leila, why are you so excited about an office job?
Well concerned individual I'll tell you why. I like new experiences, I like helping people, and I like making money. I am doing all of the above at this new job. It also pays more than DQ does and I have more hours to work so that is a great plus.
Well I have to go get ready for work now! I hope you all have a good day. Even if you don't have a good day, a wise professor once told my class "Enjoy your toils..." He said a lot of other really inspiring things but I don't remember them good enough to put it in quotes.
