What do you want to be when you grow up?
"She's already grown up," replied my sister.
At the same time I said, "I'm already grown up."
"What do you want to do for a job?" asked the kid.
"Burn," whispered my brother.
Ha. Ha. Ha. Like many twentysomethings, I don't like being asked, "So what are you doing now?" or any variation of that question, like "Where do you work?" First, it's gotten so bad that even Mr. President have mentioned the problem of more and more college graduates unable to find jobs. But I did graduate 4 years ago...so second, I'm back in school. I found out that I'm 2 classes away from an A.A. in Psychology. Maybe, perhaps, and God-willing, I can land a huge scholarship that will pay for a graduate degree in Psych...and that I can actually get into a graduate program with just an A.A. in Psych and a B.A. in Church Leadership. I've read that many people do go into graduate studies in Psych with a bachelors in a different field. So there it is. I'm flowing with the Holy ;-P because He made a way so that I'm not paying for school, my schedule is open, and that a counselor found a way to save me from taking a 3rd class. And if He's aligning things that way, I don't have to see the complete picture. I just need to take the next step. Admittedly, it's a little exciting how the ministry and psychology can tie into each other.
Well that's what happened after church, during the potbless dinner, when people had time to chit-chat. They ask you questions you don't want to answer, like the second most asked question I've been getting lately, "When are you getting married?" In God's perfect timing, but really people, being single is not something to fix, and that's a whole other blog post.
