As promised...

Here's a little update.
So this summer has been spent bouncing back and forth between Utah and California.
I went down at the end of June with my mom and we did some research and looked around at areas and jobs and such.
As you know, I got a job and then it didn't work out, so I had to run back to Cali and get my table and chair.
Then I went back out in July for Comic Con. I drove out with Aubrey and we had a blast. It was kindof like my Re-Bachelorette party. To celebrate my "divorce". I realize this may be sick and twisted to some people, to celebrate a divorce. Which may seem tragic. But it was a good thing, and it took a long time, and I felt the need to celebrate. And we did.
I attended a few panels: Chuck, Psych, Burn Notice, Quantum Quest, Bones, Top Cow (comics) and a few others, but those were my favorites!
I also purchased some fun exclusives, played some games. Got some autographs and spent some time on the main floor. I made a lot of friends and some good contacts for networking. As I have mentioned, my goal with massage is to end up working on television/movie sets. The cast and crew do a lot of physical work, which I want to aid them in making it easier, preventing and faster healing injuries, etc. But anyway, it was a good place to make the right kinds of contacts for this field.
We also did some celebrity sighting. My favorites were, of course, Caitlin Crosby and the Chuck cast, including Zachary Levi and Scott Krinsky. I also got to meet the Divide Pictures crew - Milo(Peter Petrelli on Heroes), Russ and Dino. I'd say they were my favorites. Well, them and of course, Zachary Levi. They were just so down to earth and seemed to really appreciate their fans and realize that it is us that keep them doing what they love to do.
I made a lot of fun memories, but didn't have my own camera, so my pictures are all over the place, I'll have to gather them and post a few!

After Comic Con, we came back, and I went back out a week later. Put a deposit down on an apartment and have been trying to get everything in order to be ready to leave next week.

Why the sudden move with no job you may ask? Well, the answer is quite simple, yet so complex: Faith. I have learned through my mistakes that I have made, some big, some with major consequences, and through all of that, I have learned that when God says do something, you just do it! So, I have 1 week left, almost no money and I'm still planning to go.
I'm so stressed, I got sick and I'm a wee bit nervous. But, at the same time, I feel so good about this. I just know if I keep pressing forward, God will come through.

I've had a lot of struggles with keeping my faith this year. But, I do believe in God. I do believe in Jesus Christ. And I am very greatful for Joseph Smith for asking questions and his hand in bringing forth the Gospel in its fulness in this final dispensation.
I know he is there. I have been questioning his prescense/existence a lot lately. But tonight when I said the dinner prayer, I felt someone listening. I knew there was someone else there. And I believe it was Him. I believe he loves me and is watching over me. I need to work on having more faith. Indeed.

So, that's basically it! I'm moving to Ramona! I'm so excited!
