This website most certainly needs a makeover… since my life has basically had one! I am no longer doing LVC in DC, and I am no longer leading the life of a volunteer (though working for the church may as well be volunteering). Upon returning from a most fantastic roadtrip with my sister, it was time for a few life changes.
I went from 5 female housemates to 1 female and 1 male housemate – Allison (one of my LVC housemates) and Tom Paradise (a friend from Luther). And I transitioned from living in a 3-story rowhouse with a wicked basement and roofdeck to one floor of a rowhouse. Luckily, my workplace has remained the same, providing some sort of constant in my life!
With almost two months under my belt in this new place with new housies, I have only good things to report! Our house is SWEET to say the least, and I am so blessed to have such wonderful housemates. Sometimes I miss the busyness of having a house of 6 young women – there’s always something happening. But many things are easier to accomplish when there are only 3 people to gather. During our first house meeting, we mentioned the possibility of having community night once a week like we did in LVC. This, however, happens automatically almost EVERY night of the week! With only 3 people, it’s easier to do everything together… and the extravert in me shouts for joy!
So, bear with me as I gradually make changes to this site in hopes of sharing with you what life is like after LVC and beyond. I have much to say! Now if only my stolen wireless internet would work well enough to say it…
