Differences

Hi all, sorry it’s been so long… Life is good. Very busy, but God is definitely showing me why I’ve moved.

I’ve been noticing some major (and minor) differences in life between Akron and here in Jacksonville. Here are a few:

    1. The beach life… Jax has such a relaxed atmosphere and even the shops catch me off guard. I went to the mall to kill some time before small group and just laughed to myself at some of the stores. There was an Oakley store, and several surf stores there. It was also definitely one of the nicest malls I’ve been to.
    2. Being an east coast city is still getting me. How? I’m used to living near the east/central time zone line and so sunset here is still much earlier than I expect it. I suppose I’ll adjust, but it’s still crazy.
    3. Driving. This one probably has the biggest impact on my life. Everyone here is so nice when they drive (they actually let me over!) and everyone drives SO fast (which is also nice). It’s dangerous to drive the speed limit. On the highway the marked speed is somewhere between 65-70. The driving speed is typically at least 75-80.
    4. The weather. This is the nicest benefit of them all. It has gotten cold at times (hitting mid 40s at night). But no snow and it’s usually sunny.

    Well, that’s all for now. I’ll try to be more up to date with this.

    I do get to enjoy a weekend trip to the “mothership” at North Point this weekend. It’ll be nice to be at church and have no responsibilities.
