Here's my monthly update:
I moved August 1st into a townhouse that's decorated beautifully.
I'm starting Daniel Fast again w/one of the roomies, and also trying to re-learn French.
I'm still single.
Something big is happening in my life soon, and i have no idea what it is. But God does so I'm not worried. =)
I'm currently in the process of house hunting so I can move out with Heidi and Gen.
Lessons learned thus far?
If it's too good to be true, it is.
House hunting sucks.
