7 Quick Takes About Some Awesome Things That Happened to Me and a Prayer Request - Vol. 17

My first take definitely has to be about everyone's favorite topic this week:
sotg small 7 Quick Takes about your awesomeness, saints working through Youtube, and me buying you a banana suit
The magical book fairies were smiling on me last week, because I actually got my book in the mail on the Saturday before the release date.  What?!  I was so stinkin' excited, and you had better believe I wasn't going to wait until the release date to start reading.  I'm a fast reader, so normally I should be on my 2nd or 3rd reading of the book by now, but life has been crazy recently, so I'm having to take it slowly.  My brain is saying, "Read more book NOW!" but my life is saying, "Not happening.  Just learn to savor it in small bites."  Stupid small bites, but they taste so good!  (I'm thinking that's going to sound even weirder to you than it did in my head.)

Do yourself a favor, if you haven't bought the book yet, and click rightthisveryinstant on this link right here, buy the book, read the book, and come back here and we can chat about how awesome it is!  And stay tuned for an attempt by me to write a book review once I've finished it.

Awesome thing numero dos:  I got a new job!  Yay!!!!  I will be working at a local university in one of the administrative departments.  In fact, it's at my alma mater, so even more cool to be going back.  I'm ridiculously excited for the new experience, and even more so for cutting my commute time/distance by more than half.  Thanks to all the family and friends who kept me in their prayers during the interview process.
