I went home a few weeks ago to see my brother, Nate, and his new bride, Jodi, get married. I had such a great time! The wedding was beautiful, and it was so nice to see so much of my family again. It seems like I waited my whole life to graduate and get out of Lincoln, only to wish I was still living there. I am so glad that I have been able to visit so many places, and I wouldn’t change it if I could, but there’s just something about home that draws me back. :)

Life here in Hawaii is still going on as usual. I wish it wasn’t so hot, though. I work such an odd schedule, and it’s hard to find the right time to go for a run. I have to be at work by 3:00 am, and I get home around noon, but at that time of day it’s too hot to do anything! I either have to get up at 1:00 am and go running before work (yeah, right!), or take a 4-hour nap after work, wake up to do my regular stuff, go running when the sun sets, and then go back to sleep for another 4 hours before morning. It’s really inconvenient, and it will be even more so when Andrew gets back. With a schedule like this, who knows if we’ll even see each other when he’s actually here! Aah, one day I’ll look back on these times and see them as the best days of my life … I’ll figure it out, why worry now? :)
