2017 Survey  
1. Will you be looking for a new job?
I have been unemployed since September so I REALLY need to find a new job. I've applied to various different places and I'm getting very frustrated.

2. Will you be looking for a new relationship?
Heck yes. Story of my life.

3. New house?
That would be truly wonderful but is not very realistic as I do not have a steady job.

4. What will you do different in 2017?
I will write more, I will stop being so hard on myself, I will remember how much God loves me and not put so much pressure on myself.

5. New Year's Resolution?
Truly believe I am worthy because Jesus Christ loved me enough to die for me. Don't settle for less than I deserve. My one word: Fearless. Fearless because there is no fear in love. Fearless in being my authentic self. Fearless in my relentless pursuit of my goals. Fearless because God is good and my trust is in Him.

6. What will you not be doing in 2017?
Kissing the person I've kissed on and off for two years because I'm lonely.

7. Any trips planned?
I plan to go to Vegas this year.

8. Wedding plans?

That would be wonderful but I don't have a man yet.

9. Major thing on your calendar?
Honestly the only thing on my calender right now is a game night and my friend's surprise birthday party.

10. What can’t you wait for?
Meeting my true love.

11. What would you like to see happen differently in 2017?

I'd like to spend more time with God and reading His Word. I would like to work on my book more.

12. What about yourself will you be changing?

I will work out more and eat healthier.

13. What happened in '16 that you didn’t think would ever happen?
I got my dream job and lost it.

14. Will you be nicer to the people you care about?

I am kind but I will continue to do my best to be honest and firm, speaking the truth in love.

15. Will you dress differently in 2017 than you did in 2016?
There is a story I will have to tell you about being sent home from church to change because my pants were "too tight." I really don't have the money right now to buy a whole new wardrobe. Eventually I will dress in a way that is attractive and professional and I won't give a damn about legalistic Christians telling me that it's not appropriate but first I need to be able to afford to go shopping.

16. Will you start or quit drinking?

I drink moderately and there is nothing wrong with drinking as long as you've got it under control.

17. Will you better your relationship with your family?
I hope so.

18. Will you do charity work?
I did a lot of it this year and it's exhausting but I would like to do more.

19. Will you be nice to people you don't know?
I always am.

20. Do you expect 2017 to be a good year for you?
I hope so.

21. How much did you change from this time last year till now?

That is a relative question. In what way?

22. Do you plan on having a child?
Not this year.

23. Will you still be friends with the same people you are friends with now?
I hope so.

24. Major lifestyle changes?
If I move.

25. Will you be moving?

See above.

26. What are your New Year's Eve plans?
This year I went to San Francisco. Read all about my wild adventures here. Next year is way too far away to plan.

28. Will you have someone to kiss at midnight?
Again, please see #26.

#15: Is this the same story as your "Dear Rachel" entry or a different one?
P.S: Yes, I have been away for quite awhile and yes I'm catching up. ;)

You have a good memory! (Unless you looked back at my entries from two years ago...) But no, the "Dear Rachel" post was the first incident I believe and it was a dress in that case. I got spoken to again with another dress back in July (it was about an inch above my knee) but I didn't go home and change. THIS particular incident I'm speaking of was PANTS for crying outloud. They were nice, professional gray slacks and perfectly suitable for work but apparently not church. My pastor's wife looked so incredibly pissed that I just volunteered to go home and change after she yelled at me. She said, "I've told you more than once about your clothes!" She said. "More than one man has come up to me and specifically said your name and asked me to talk to you about your outfit." Dear God, this woman couldn't be serious? Oh, but she was dead serious. I took a picture of the pants in question and sent it to three of my male Christian friends, all of whom said that I should consider switching churches because the Fashion Nazi is getting out of control. But I'm not going to switch churches. I talked to Rachel on Christmas about how I felt about her imposing her strict dress code on me and I told her if the men at church have a problem they can come to me directly and speak to my face about what specifically is bothering them about my outfit because I'd really like to know who it is that is making a big deal out of it. It makes me uncomfortable that I'm being ogled. My own pastor said he had to look away because he quote (his words) "didn't want to look at my sister in Christ like that."

I read back pretty far to get caught up since I had been away for so long. That is absolutely crazy! I'm sorry you had to deal with that!
