Sure. I guess I might as well keep this up. It was such a release while I was gone, I don’t know why I stopped when I returned to the states. Okay, that’s a lie. I know why. Time and commitment. Two things I am learning a great deal about right now.
Let’s do a run down of the past two months (more of a sprint down), I gotta catch you up to speed fast.
I returned to the states after 40 hours of travel instead of the 26 hours it was supposed to take. Living in airports is not listed on top priorities in my life. I had an incredible amount of people to catch up with. The next couple days was full of coffee dates, lunches, and kicking it with my friends. Something that I truly thrive on! Then four days later, I hopped on a bus and took off to Crooked Creek Ranch, a Young Life camp in Frasier, Colorado. Had an amazing week out there with some super-enthusiastic-hyper life loving high-schoolers then returned home. Post camp I moved back into SigEp and had the biggest culture shock I have ever undergone. Moved out for two weeks to recoup and collect myself, then went back to Sigep to try it again.
After living there for a few days I was once again blessed to travel with Young Life’s cycling team, this year we traveled to Ventura County California. It was a beautiful ride accompanied with a nice relaxing weekend. Flew home on Sunday and started school on Monday!
School has taken up a considerable amount of time, more than usual. But it’s worth it, I’ve got an itch to get out and I’m doing the best I can to make that happen within the year. It’s looking promising!
Along with school I have decided to take a larger role in Edmond Young Life this year. I am hoping that this will open my eyes and teach me about working in the ministry field for possibly a post-school plan. But if you know me well, I’m not big on planning ahead . Still not sure on what my life looks like after school but I know that the Lord has control and will use me wherever I end up, I just pray that I will be faithful in listening to what He has to say!
It’s crazy that I am a senior. I say that because I am supposed to say that. Honestly, it doesn’t feel that crazy. The past four years have flown by, but I say that about every four years…so you would think that I would have grasped the idea that time flies, whether or not you are having fun! Haha but it has been fun and I have grown more in these past few years than in my combined 22 years of life. However, I will not settle for these four years to be “the best years of my life.” I know that my post-college years will be different, but I know that they posses more opportunity and adventure than I am prepared for! So bring them on. For now, I am here and I will be present.
It’s good to be back and can’t wait to share what is going on in my life!
