Wow, It's been a while

I knew it had been a while since I posted on my blog, but I had no idea it had been over 2 months. I'll give you a quick update on where I've been. About a week after my last post I found an apartment. I knew it was time to take a step toward a new life and moving seemed to be the easiest way. So I started apartment hunting. It was a very depressing venture. Most of the apartments in my price range were in places I would not live. However one afternoon an apartment within my price range in an area I would live appeared. But the trick was I had to take it right away. So I did. The month of February was spent packing, moving, unpacking and cleaning the old apartment. It was quite the adventure. 

If moving wasn't enough to keep me busy I decided to go back to school. This was a few months in the making as I had to research schools, go through the application process and get accepted. During my very frantic move I found out I was accepted into Multnomah University's Master of Counseling program. Exciting and frightening all at the same time. I spent the month of March settling into my new home and recovering from the shock of having to do homework again. 

Now that my new apartment is mostly unpacked, I hope to settle into a study schedule soon. An assignment for my first class was to create a study schedule that allowed for some balance in life. So I made sure to schedule time for my photography since I think that may be one of the few things that will keep me sane through this intensive 2 year program. Lets just hope the homework doesn't overwhelm me and take control.
