The Girl has an Announcement

Being married doesn't make you happy; it makes you married.

~Marian Jordan from Wilderness Skills for Women:How to Survive Heartbreak and Other Full Blown Meltdowns

I have to say that that book is one of my all time favorites. It helped a lot when I felt very lost. Marian Jordan has a lot of of good Christian Inspirational/ Self-Help books, what makes them so great? She's human! Her writing style is compelling and sincere. A number of self-help or Christian books seem so doom and gloom. The writer does not care about the reader.
This is not the case with Marian Jordan. Her other books include Sex and the City Uncovered: Exposing the Emptiness and Healing the Hurt and The List: Figuring Out Prince Charming, the Corner Office and Happily Ever After. She also started Redeemed Girl ministries (HTTP:// and I must admit, that she is part of the reason I started Broken Girl/Fractured World.
However, that a book review is not the purpose of this entry. I just want to apologize that I have been on a sort of writing hiatus the last couple weeks. School ended (4.0 semester!) work is getting busy (despite the rain) and I have been discussing things thoroughly with the the love of my life and am incredibly happy to announce:

Thank you Gwei! ^_^ It's going to be a long engagement, not a bad thing since the dating was not very long! He has a year left of college and I do not want to add to his stress with a wedding. Bad enough that we are probably looking for a new apartment here shortly.
