Another year has gone by...

I am a year older today. It's exciting and I am inching my way toward another decade, but still a few years away. One student approached me today and said, "Don't worry Miss Price, you are only as old as you feel!" I laughed a little. I wanted to say: "I AM YOUNG, not just feel young!"

There are so many things to look forward to these days. As I reflect upon the last 2o and a few=) years, I realize that I have changed as a person in so many ways. I remember this one moment in my sophomore year of high school, a good ten years ago, when I was sitting in Mr. Perry's english class, his door was open, it was a beautiful day, sunny, soft breeze. I remember exactly what I was thinking. "I wonder where I will be in 5 years, in 10 years." If someone would have been able to look into the future and told me where I would be, I wouldn't have believed it. I have had to opportunity to travel 4 of the 7 continents, get my Bachelor's degree, become a dental assistant, and a high school history teacher. Sometimes I get into a rut and begin to think I am leading a pretty boring life, and then I actually look at my life and realize I am just being ignorant. I praise the Lord for the things I have gotten to do and people I have gotten to know. Its a wonderful life. Its a Happy Birthday indeed.

So. Another thing, since people only seem to read and comment the blogs I write about singleness, I thought I would write another one.

I can't tell you how many people have told me to go online. "Oh try, and EHarmony is a christian one." it is the only way to find someone these days."

I know plenty of great, Godly people who have tried those type of things. I just cannot see myself doing that. Whatever happened to single guys asking single girls to go out and have coffee or something. So many people in the Christian community are against dating. I think maybe us girls expect too much, and the guys are intimidated by that. Or do guys expect too much and girls are intimidated by that? Anyway, people say that online dating is a safe way of getting to know someone. How the heck is the internet safe?

Just wondering what everyone else thought. It seems dangerous, it seems desperate, meanwhile, I am working on the whole contentment thing. It doesn't seem like something content people do. I have pretty much decided on not doing online dating, but what do you think?
