Depression?

Mon, 05/03/2010 - 20:25 — Carrie

It has come to my attention that the majority of my blog lately has been some depressing stuff. I was trying to figure out why. Am I really that depressed all the time?
Well, no, in fact, I am more often not depressed, than I am depressed. So why do so many of my blog posts reflect the depressive side of me?
I have concluded the following reasons:
1- Being depressed for me is not the norm, so when it does happen, it seems blog-worthy.
2- When I'm happy, I'm just happy, whereas when I'm sad, I feel the need to write to let some of my depression/sadness/pent-up frustration out. Hence, a blog post.
3- I get more comments when it's a sad post, 'cause everyone tries to cheer me up. ^_^

That being said, I've decided to write a happier post. Only problem is, I don't have anything particularly happy to write about, so I think it's going to be more of a neutral post.
I've been considering some changes in life, lately. Still praying about one in particular, so I won't go into detail about it, but the other one is the possibility of taking some college courses this fall. Nothing too exciting. Just some foreign language and perhaps a math course. I don't study things enough, and I have trouble motivating myself to study and learn on my own, so if I sign up for a class, I figure it'll be easier to stick to it. Tongue

Okay, I know I said I wasn't going to put anything sad in this post, but I must now make an exception for a very notable change that will take place soon. Jake is moving out. He's going up to NYC for the Summer. Queens, to be exact. He'll be interning at a church there until the beginning of August, at which point he will return home for a few weeks, at most, and then be off to Virginia to attend Liberty University. He's leaving in little more than 2 weeks.
This is very sad. Sad Jake and I don't always agree about everything, but I can literally talk to him about anything, and to have him leave will be very sad. I foresee some weekend trips to Virginia coming up for me this fall. Tongue

Ok, on to happier topics.
My baby is almost a year old. I can hardly believe it! Seems like just yesterday she was a newborn, and now she's almost walking! She waved and said bye-bye to me the other day for the first time, and I think I had the same goofy smile pasted on all night because of it. Tongue I can't wait until she says my name. ^_^

Summer has arrived, and brought 80 degree weather and 80% humidity with it. The heat I could do without, but the humidity is not bad. Laughing out loud

I found a new panda website online. It has some very neat stuff on it. Laughing out loud

I am studying dispensationalism lately, brought on by a recent conversation. I have studied it before, but usually didn't know where to start. I've gotten on some decent leads now, though, and we'll see where I get. Some of the stuff I don't quite agree with, but other things seem to make sense.

I am very glad I have friends. When time goes by and I don't get a chance to really talk to them, I suddenly realize how much I depend on them.

Big smile @ studying Dispensationalism.

College courses are not a bad idea. While you pray about them, you might also pray that no single, eligible guys see this blog post and turn away because of "your baby." Tongue

*hides*

ha...

if they know me, Chris, they know what baby I'm talking about. Lol. Big smile

Ooooh

I didn't know that about Jake. Very exciting!

You should take college classes. You will definitely learn a lot, and not just from the class. Yup.
