Peyton, Kayleigh, and Lexie on the Barge ride.
Brad and I on the Barge ride.
Brad and I went to Kentucky on Thursday night after I got off work and we just returned home today. It was fun. I got to see a lot of my friends and it made me realize that I don't really have any friends here in Tennessee.. I like all the people that I work with at Ben Franklin but I never hang out with any of them outside of work except for the two or three times in the year and two months that I've worked there. The only people I ever do anything with is my boyfriend and my family members. I've never been good at making friends. I think it's because I'm not very outgoing, and I'm almost kind of socially awkward when I first meet someone. Oh, well. I'm thankful for the people I do have relationships with.
While we were in Kentucky Brad and I went to see a play at the Mountain Art Center called Pilgrim. It's a religious play about a young boy named Christian who is given a bible and starts his pilgrimage to the Cross. It's a great play, and the first time I watched it almost two years ago it really inspired me. I related to the main character Christian on many levels. After watching the play I started attending church every Wednesday night and Sunday morning, I read in my bible, got saved and baptized shortly after. I thought my life was changed forever, and maybe it still is but I went through a really depressing time in my life a few months after devoting my life to Christ and I drifted off my path. I made so much progress and just let it all go. I gained so much self control and had this incredible peace of mind. Its something I think about often and I'd really like to try and live that kind of life again. I say that but at the same time I must not want that 100% or I wouldn't be holding myself back like I do.
Anyway, I've had a nice couple weeks. I've read four books this month which is AWESOME! I've been wanting to get back into reading regularly and it seems like I finally have. I read the three books in the Generation Dead series and then read The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks! All very good books.
Might go to Dollywood on Wednesday. I purchased season passes for me and my boyfriend.
I guess that's really all I have for now.
