“I’m dreaming tonight of a place I love, even more than I usually do.”
On Saturday, December 20 – I’ll be landing on the runway of the Central Wisconsin airport.
It will be such a grand feeling to see my parents, the greatest miracle in my life.
I know I will definitely miss Music City when I board that plane, but cannot wait to go home.
This is one of the busiest times of the year.
I have four papers due the week after Thanksgiving break and then finals.
Before I know it, I will be flying back home to cold-chilly Wisconsin.
The past few weeks have been quite hectic. I am swamped with papers to write for interpersonal communication, newswriting, business law, and strategic management.
Sound crazy? Believe me. It is. Welcome to senior year.
I enjoy the fall days.
The cool, crisp weather.
The red, orange, and yellow leaves.
There is nothing like enjoying the most simple moments in life.
Here are a few that I have experienced in the past few days:
1. Walking outside in the pouring rain, embracing God’s amazing grace.
(There is nothing like it. You should try it sometime.)
2. Receiving a phone call from mom and dad, at just the right time.
(Especially when I am stressed out from school.)
3. Shooting hoops wth my rock-awesome bud, KB.
(I am not very good, but I am still working on that jump shot.)
They are awesome.
Especially the bud from Kentucky and the Ohio girl.
If you come to Belmont you will…
Experience real, honest friendships.
Engage in out-of-the-ordinary coffee nights.
What is the favorite part about the story that you are living right now?
The Fourth of July went off with an exploding bang. The fireworks lit up the pitch-black sky with showers of glowing confetti. This year, I spent the 4th with a few friends. We grilled out, ate scrumptious food, and of course – capped off the night with a spectacular fireworks show.
This past week has been quite busy! I have almost completed my jog/run course for the month of June. I am thoroughly satisfied with my running progress. The first week of class (with the humidity) resulted in running about 1.5 miles in about twenty minutes. And by the end of June, I will have run a straight 5K (3.1 miles) in hopefully less than 40 minutes. To say the least, I have almost reached the finish line.
