So the number one thing you think of this time of year at least for me is the change in weather. Well, that isn't happening for us here in Utah, we are stuck in an awful inversion with no end in sight. It has made me think as I begin this week of the changes that seem to be afoot.
Not only are we over due for a huge ginormous snowstorm, but it is the final countdown to Christmas. Aside from that as my wife always says once I get set up on direct deposit at work it usually means it is time for me to change jobs..... Also speaking of ginormous and changes afoot, my wife is huge and we have our third baby boy on the way. Lucas is our little sunshine boy and sometimes it seems hard to imagine another child smaller than him, but alas Matthew Tanner Christensen will join our family sometime in March.
I have also officially passed my first Math class as a College student and made plans to apply to the University of Utah at the end of next year. I was told to take the least amount of classes next semester, and what do I do, I take 19 credit hours. Maybe I will re-think that once I finish my last two finals and I get my final grades for this semester. I am very proud of myself for how I am doing in school and look forward to attending the U next year.
Besides a possible new job, school and baby, some new adventures and opportunities await me in the coming weeks and it scares the HECK out of me. I have never been the type of person to talk about what I have done with my life and want to do with my life, but I am very optimistic about these next few weeks and through the beginning of 2012. I have hope and courage even though it scares the HECK out of me.
This year has been a very difficult but refining fire type year. I am proud to say that I am refined and in the best place I have ever been. I know that this next year will be a better, busier, and more rewarding year for us. I just hope I can make it through the next coupe of weeks.
This is kind of my emotions at this point, a mixture of the following:
