My week

Not a lot has gone on this week except for my jury duty, which has been interesting! But I have discovered some things this week--

There are a lot of cool places downtown GR! Since my jury duty is downtown, I've spent my lunch hours tooling around the city with my fellow jurors, checking out the places to eat. There are some really beautiful older buildings downtown, and a vibe that you get when you are walking around like something exciting is just around the corner. Either that, or it's the caffeine talking.

I am not as directionally challenged as I have led myself to believe. However, I've learned to trust my instincts when given directions, and I always find where I'm going! But, I can't GIVE directions to save my life.

I mentioned in my last post that I am very shy but often have to force myself to come out of my shell in social situations. I feel like I really came out of my comfort zone this week, and made 2 new friends along the way.

It has actually been nice to be away from work this week and to do something out of my normal everyday routine. So even though I didn't want jury duty to begin with, I think it has been a interesting opportunity!

Oh wow! I didn't know you lived in GR, MI!?! I used to live there myself, when I attended Cornerstone U! Grand Rapids is still a very special place to me, and I still have a few friends who live there. I don't know why, it just excites me to know we have this in common!
