WOO HOO! It’s FINALLY Friday!!! And this Friday is especially awesome, because it begins my spring break!
1. I got to experience my first distribution day with The Chapel Bell on Monday! I told people “Happy Monday” all around campus and handed them a paper. The looks on their faces were entertaining for various reasons, and it was definitely an exciting way to start of my week.
2. I got to have coffee with Alyssa, Michelle, and Leah on Wednesday. It’s good to be able to catch up with people even after your lives have been out of sync for a while.
3. I went to a Career Center seminar on Careers in Social Media on Wednesday night, and I won’t even pretend like I wasn’t freaking out. The possibilities of making a career out of blogging or tweeting for a larger purpose is just EXCITING! I knew I was in the right place when I found out there was a specific hashtag just for the meeting, and we were going to follow the Twitter feed of the hashtag on a big screen the entire time… 🙂 #confessionsofasocialmediaaddict
4. Throughout this week, so many HUGE ideas for the future have surfaced in my mind. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m sleep-deprived or because my mind is truly working in hyperdrive this week, but I just keep thinking of ways I can use my talents and abilities to DO SOMETHING. I’m not sure yet where I’m going to pour my efforts into, but I feel like maybe all of these ideas are just God calling me to trust him to do something bigger than I can even imagine in my life. After multiple failed attempts to carry out my own plans, I think I’m finally waking up and realizing that I have to be willing to yield to God’s plans for my life if I truly want to live. It’s a simple realization that has taken me quite a long time to clearly see.
5. I am so inexplicably happy to be going home for spring break. I’m looking forward to having the week to spend time with my family, reduce the size of my to-do list, and hopefully get back onto some sort of regular sleeping schedule. I don’t think I’ve slowed down in at least two weeks, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to breathe and recover.
