Ethne and I are still dreaming of the day when we can live in a compound and craft FULL-TIME.  Doesn’t that sound marvelous!  Who knows, maybe…just maybe…that will happen.  You never know! 

As many of you know, I work in student affairs at a college in my little city, ND town.  I have been in charge of residence life and new student orientation for over four years.  Before that, I was in charge of student activities.  And, before that I was an admissions counselor.  I L.O.V.E. working at a college—you stay young, you feel young!  It’s GREAT!  And, I feel like I am making a difference. 

But recently I have decided I needed to make a shift in my life.  I have had this aching feeling to be home more with Mur-Man.  I have also had this feeling that I NEEDED to go to law school.  Honestly, it’s probably my obsession with HLNTV.  You’ve read all about our crime editions.  Ethne and I talk non-stop about current cases.

And so, I took the plunge.  I am now moving into a 20 hour/week job at the college.  I will be the Director of Retention beginning in January.  My job will be to work on helping students adjust to college life and helping them to be successful.

Two days a week I will be home with Mur-man and hitting the LSAT study-guide.  Who knows?  Maybe I will go to law school and maybe I won’t.

I will also continue to teach public speaking at the college, and I have started to teach online classes as well.  Life is good, but a little scary too with all of these changes.
