Grown-up thinking.

AHHH! Hello friends. :)

After much nagging and need-to, I am FINALLY writing this. And I think it's going to be EPIC. At least, I hope.

Life for me lately has been....cray-cray. (that means crazy.)

I am ATTEMPTING to finish my very last, and lonesome semester at the good ol' ICC. And I am very grateful for this precious time. Looking back at these last 3 years, they truly have been the greatest 3 years of my life. I have met SO many close friends and made connections that I will have forever. I will not miss Fulton. Oh sweet heavens, NO. But, I will miss the sweet things this city has given me. And all of the priceless and warm memories I've made here.

Any who, let's play catch up!

Alot has happened since I have blogged. Please forgive me; homework, work and life have distracted me. I promise to do better. :)

Well, I only have about 6-7 weeks left until I graduate and I am so so SO excited. But also, I am nervous and anxious to start this new chapter in my life. School is winding down and right about.....NOW am regretting taking 24 hours worth of classes and working 2.5 jobs. But, HEY! what can you do?


Oh, this is exciting.

My major is Speech Pathology for all of you who do not know that. I had the opportunity to shadow/observe a speech pathologist in Ripley during spring break. (Mrs. Brittany Bevill, some of you may know her. ) And let me just say, I had a fabulous time! I L-O-V-E-D it! I am so so SO excited about my career. She works with the elderly so I was able to experience that. I am really looking forward to observing children too!

Brittany, thank you so much for letting me come!

I have more exciting news, too.

SO, this past week I was invited to interview for a scholarship at The W. (Mississippi University for Women, Columbus, MS)

It was this past Friday so my sweet mama and I went down and spent the day in Columbus. We looked at apartments and such and we are almost set on everything! Just a few final details and we will be official. This is such an exciting time for me but its also a very bitter sweet time for my mama. Her first baby is about to move a good distance away that I will not be about to come home every weekend. And I think she is still coming to terms with all of it.

I love you, Mama Noni!

I won't know about my scholarship for another 2 weeks. nerve-wracking.

Through all of this change and gray area, I have learned alot.

I have learned that life is never how it seems, but always as it will be.

And also, the only constant, unwavering thing in life is change. And Jesus.

Change and Jesus.

You can take that to the bank, folks.

Just one more thing.

This got my attention, and I hope it will get yours too.

This life we are living is not about what we accomplish or what we know. It's all about how you apply what you know and what you have accomplished to further yourself and help others in the journey we are on together.

That may make no sense to you, but it makes sense to me.

I hope you all have a great week!
