First week back

Hello friends,

SO I just want to let you know that College is amazing and I seriously have never been so happy with my life.

I'm looking forward to seeing where God takes me in my faith this semester.

I've recently taken up this prayer challenge called 146. The idea is you pray for someone who hasn't accepted Jesus as his/her savior for six months. I'm SO pumped about it, so I actually have two. If you're willing to try it, and you'd like more details, please feel free to let me know!

Anyway, it's so great to be back at school. I have missed everyone and everything that is a part of this life that has become so much a part of my heart.

I'm looking forward to the majority of my classes this semester, excluding Math and Health/Wellness promotion.

I'm certainly looking forward to being in the large chorus, an experience I will surely enjoy greatly!

Thanks for reading, friends! I hope you all are having fantastic weeks!

Love Always,

Still Breathing

Hello Loves,

I seriously doubt anyone will read this, considering it's my first post, and I really only have one friend who has urged me to create this account. However, if you're reading this, your support is greatly appreciated.

I've been on break for the better part of a month now, slowly going insane because my independence -granted to me at the start of college- has been ripped from my grasp and is being held hostage by the two people I love the most. They're great parents, really, they are. It's just annoying having to deal with petty things like curfew and doing everyone's laundry. Though I've greatly enjoyed the time with my friends, I can't wait to go back to school and settle back into my routine.

Other than that, I'd say I'm surviving. I'm looking forward to a fresh start in 2009.

Some things I've decided to not label as resolutions:
(Because the word resolution is poison; it forces you to be pessimistic.)
1.) My roommate, Caitlin, and I are "eating correctly" (joy), and starting a workout schedule.
2.) My thoughts and actions are going to be more compassionate.
3.) I'm going to cuss less, especially when driving.
4.) I'm going to be more considerate of others.

And finally...

5.) I'm going to try diligently to get along with my family.

Things I'm most looking forward to in the next week:

1.) Giving my roommates their Christmas gifts.
2.) Re-Organizing/Decorating my dorm room.
3.) Sleeping in on the weekends.
4.) Going to the Panthers playoff game with Caitlin.
5.) Valentine's day (Don't ask me why, because I don't know.)

Love Always,
