While I have been so busy this semester, I wish I could say that is why I havn’t been blogging, but it’s not. There have been a couple times when I had more than enough time to write, it’s just that I thought I didn’t have anything worth writing. Then I realized that I’ve got to be able to think of something in the last two months, or I’ve had a pretty pathetic two months. So. I’ve just recently picked up more hours at P4K Daycare Center. Starting next week I will work about 16 1/2 hours. I work from 6:30-9 am and 4-6 pm M,W,F, and 4:30-6 pm on T,Th. It’s pretty busy, but it hasn’t been overwhelming yet. On Sunday, I have an interview for a job on campus and I am pretty excied about that too. I will write more about that later, though. Classes have been great so far! I have definitely been putting in more hours in the studio for my projects but it has been a lot of fun being able to work on art with materials and tools on hand almost 24/7. Even my education classes have been pretty amazing. Each class just gets me more and more excited to have my own classroom someday and keep getting ideas for my future students! 🙂 This semester I was made Class President and with that comes a lot of responsibility but it has been fun to work on the class council with my awesome officers! I have also dyed my hair brown for those of you who havn’t seen me yet. I’ve been told it’s quite the change, and I’ll admit, there are times I don’t recognize myself but I like it. No worries, it will wash out in a month or so. I have started going to a new church in the city called Northridge Baptist Church. I really like it a lot. The congregation is bigger than what I’m used to but the pastor is phenomenal! I love to listen to his messages. I was talking with Dad recently and we talked about how we enjoyed is authoratative presence and style. Mom and Dad and Aaron have visited a few times as well and it is always good to see them.
Lately I have found myself blown away by the fact that I’m in college. Sometimes it feels like I shouldn’t be old enough to be making decisions that I have to make, and there are times when I just want to go home because home was my escape from school. Now school and home are all mixed together it seems and I’ll be honest, that can be hard. Part of college is going to be learning to find a balance and a healthy escape, but I’m still working on it at the moment. It may take all four years but I’ll get there. Hopefully by then I’ll be able to know what I’m doing after college too. It’s weird to think that I’ll be really on my own in a few years. I feel like I have so much to learn before then, and I don’t have enough time to learn it all. Maybe that is what makes college so adventerous for us, trying to learn what we couldn’t at home through things we shouldn’t do. Making mistakes we knew would happen, but let thm happen anyways. Whether that’s the best way to learn or not, I don’t know, but that seems to be the M.O. of the modern college student sometimes, doesn’t it? Maybe those mistakes will make me stronger, maybe they will teach me things, but they sure as heck arn’t fun. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved college, but I’m not going to sugarcoat it and say it’s been easy. I will, however, post a few pictures and end this post on a cheerier note. 🙂
Campus in the winter (: It’s cold, but it can be beautiful from the inside.
Once again, I move around my room to change things up a bit. (:
Just last night there was a dance marathon and we were encouraged to dress up from different decades! It was a blast! (:
