Can I just vent for a second?
Figuring out what the heck you're supposed to do in life is comp.la.cate.ed.
Just when I think I've got it figured out and I feel like I'm moving in the direction God wants me to, I solidify plans, tell the world, probably blog a little about it - then BAM the plan changes. It falls through or I feel like God has totally changed my heart on the subject.
This is how plan-making has worked my whole life. Or at least since I was old enough to really make plans on my own-ish.
Example 1: UNC's the last place I want to go to college. I pray (rather insincerely I might add) that God shut all the school doors but one so I don't even have to make a decision. Know what He does? Exactly what I prayed for, dang it! Outcome: I go to UNC. (And am super thankful for it. Hindsight's 20/20, right?)
Example 2: Plan out my life with this pretty nice dude. God brings Miles along when I'm least expecting it. Break up with pretty nice dude having no idea (wellll okay a slight hint/hope beyond all hope) that Miles likes me. End up marrying the guy. Boom. Way to work that one out, God.
Example 3: Prepare to graduate a semester early and start grad school right away. Enter ridiculous credit hour issue and me taking one last class at UNC this semester, only to postpone grad school. Aka only to reconsider what tha heck I'm doing with my life and why I want to go to grad school in the first place.
Thanks for letting me vent. And if any of you 6 people reading this know what I'm supposed to do with the next 60 or so years of my life, lemme know will ya?
