god and stuff

I've decided not to get a job. It is a McD's combo of laziness, lack of motivation and fries. Granted, extra money would be nice...but I really feel like I worked my ass off this year - both teaching and doing my work with the athletic department - so I've decided to try a new venture! In one week, I am going to begin volunteering with First Coast No More Homeless Pets! I'll be working in their office and helping with the spay/neuter hotline. Volunteering will a) get me out of the house b) keep me away from the stores c) help make my city a nicer place and d) get me off the hook with God for not going to church in six weeks. I'm not in the mood for one of her smitings.

Speaking of God, I've also decided to head to my Montreat conference a week early. Those of you who know me, know that Montreat holds the sweetest and most sincere piece of my heart in its mountains. I've been on the planning team for the middle school conference for two years, and our week is finally going to take place this summer! I was planning to go up just for my week, but after much thought, I decided to go and be a small group leader for the high schoolers a week prior. I'll get to see a lot of people whom I miss dearly, and I'll get to visit my favorite place in the whole world. Also...free room and board, three meals a day, plus unlimited access to snacks, internet, and they will reimburse me for travel. How could I say no??

Until payday...it better hurry!
