Well hello there blogging world, long time no see. I've just been reading from afar this semester without finding the time or really feeling inspired to blog. It has been a great first semester of college. There were ups and downs of course, but overall, I am very happy with how everything has turned out. I wouldn't change any part of it for the world. It was definitely very difficult to begin with, going to an out of state school, not knowing a soul, but I did it and made some really great friends. It took time, but if there's one thing I learned, it's that in order to make friends and connections, you have to put yourself out there and make and effort. Things won't just happen on there own. Being at a big school was very interesting. Tennessee is run by the athletics and Greek life and if you're not involved in either of them, it's often hard to find your purpose on campus. Personally, I have gotten involved in Young Life. I have found community that I love and that challenges me, but I am still searching for more. I feel like the Lord is calling me to take a chance, that there is more for my life that I can't even imagine. I feel like the Lord is calling me to serve him with my entire life, to go into ministry. I'm just excited to see what the Lord has in plan. I never imagined changing my major and life plans, potentially even the school I am attending. I was so positive. I am just as surprised as the next person. It's blowing my mind. I'm excited and terrified at the same time. I am beginning to relate with Mary, how she must have felt with Gabriel came and told her that she would be carrying Jesus. How willing she was, how she didn't hesitate, but that she trusted the Lord.
