"Working my way up, see what God wants..."

All righty. It's in the middle of summer, I've got no summer classes available, and I still have to wait till spring to graduate (I can only take two classes this fall and one in the spring). But anyway, during that time I've been working out what to do, praying for guidance now and again, getting ideas and starting to fit some puzzle pieces together.

I recently visited the Twin Valley Fire Dept. and was given an application. Because of this being a volunteer job, it's much less expensive than taking full-semester courses at Montco. I still have to wait till next month before they decide to take me in, and then I've got to learn more about the training that I need to start off. It shouldn't be an issue since they allow kids 14 and up to join, and they most certainly would have thicker schedules than I currently do.

So through the fire department I'm hoping to really get some real experience/know-how through Fire Police training, work with them part-time while in school, and after I graduate college Lord willing I'll be able to make Security Services. All in God's timing. But still, it can be hard to resist getting anxious about some of this stuff.

On top of all this I've got a couple years at the University of Valley Forge ahead. Two, maybe three years, starting in January. Not sure how long it'll take, but hopefully most of my credits from Montco will transfer just fine. I'm getting pretty excited to go there, getting curious about the campus life, the people, wider persepctive gained through it all...

So anyway, that's the game plan for now. Can't wait to see how it all plays out.
