Luck be a lady...

I've had some incredible luck picking winners lately.

First, I won the NCAA bracket in my office without watching a single game.  I should be getting my rewards soon.

Today I just "won" bragging rights for picking the final three and winner of Survivor.  It was my first time watching the show and it featured all past contestants.  I was up against long-time, lloyal Survivor fans.  Oh, and my brother.  Whom I beat.  Did I mention that?

Bring on the freshies!!!!!!!

Can't wait to meet all my new freshmen!

"Please Don't Devour Mockingjay"

I am almost done with the last book of the Hunger Games series.  I have to keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy it!

Here is a great article about it!

A Long Shot

Life has been drastically better these past few months.  I am a homeowner.  My job is amazing and fulfilling.  Friends and family love and support me daily.  I am very blessed.

But I have always desired getting married and having a family.  I live in a college town.  I work with college students.  I go to church that is primarily college-aged people.  My natural contact with men my age is nonexistent.

Recently I was talking to another single friend about this.  She shared that for a couple months she had been on eHarmony.  She encouraged me to give it a try. 

To be honest, I scoffed at it.....the internet?  Seriously? How clique of me to try.  I just didn't know what I thought about it.  Could God actually use something like that?  I thought about it for a while and finally decided to sign up for 1 month.  Just to try.

I was convinced that I was putting God in a box.  If He could use a burning bush to communicate, why couldn't he use the internet.  I still have my doubts.  But I am going to give it a try.  We'll see what comes from it......
