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://www.redeemedgirl.org) 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:

I AM ENGAGED!!!

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.

P.S. A second congrats for the kick-ass 4.0 semester! Yeah, babe. :D
