expectations

We've been here for almost a month now...and things haven't turned out the way I imagined they would. Don't get me wrong, I'm not unhappy. It's just...different. 

I suppose I thought that by now this place would feel more "homey." Actually we don't even have any friends yet. It's weird. Meeting people is more difficult than I imagined. Plus, we all know, I'm not friendly. ;-)

I don't feel close to anyone, except Alex of course. But it's weird to not have many other contacts. I was hoping we'd find a church to plug into by now...but we have yet to find one that we feel called to be a part of. I think it's just overwhelming because there are SO many churches. I'm hoping that we are able to join one in the next two weeks.

I love my school. There's a lot of reading to do. Some if it, I enjoy...and some, I could do without. But my classes and professors are all very interesting. I'm thankful for that. 

I miss my family and friends. I hope that you all are doing great in Miami...and I'll see most of you again very soon anyway, so whatev'! ;-)

In short, I came to North Carolina with a LOT of great expectations...and have received quite a few disappointments instead. However, I'm still happy and grateful to be here and know that this is the place where God wants us to be. I'm really looking forward to see how we will grow as individuals and a couple. 

Pray for us!
