I have decided..

that life just sometimes needs a nifty little pause or slow down or rewind or fast forward button. What a quality investment that would be. Lately, everything has seemed different and somewhat distant. After being back at school for almost a month, my mind still has not comprehended the fact that real studious work needs to go down in the near future. This past month has passed me by, often flashing before my eyes as I stand as a bystander. The Lord has been shaking up all sorts of randomness in the good ol cstat. Classes are majorly course intensive, but will be much more interesting than last semester *fingers crossed*. Friends have been fantastic and refreshingly inspirational.

these chocolates just about made my life

Successes of the month include:
1. getting my trusty little laptop back from the insane world of macland
2. made my first website ever using html for my computer class
3. showed boyfriend the wonderful world of college station and all we have to offer
4. made a new best friend and Arkansas road trip buddy!
5. hung out with my awesome flic sisters and familia
6. extra treasured bonding time with current and future roomies

The Lord has been teaching and molding me in all sorts of ways lately. I won't go in to much detail, but I will relay some life lessons that have been on my heart. 1. Don't be afraid to dig in your past and learn from whatever you maybe running from. 2. Expect past exploring to lead to new awarenesses and thoughts and embrace raw emotion. 3. Let people in, often times they will surprise you and be there for you when you least want to reveal yourself to them. 4. Find community wherever you are. People who truly live life with you and know your hidden nooks and crannies. Friends who aren't scared of the worst and craziest sides of you. If you don't have it yet, be patient AND active. True community takes guts and work and proactive patterns. Granted, nothing I have said or learned is new or mindblowing. Oftentimes I have found, that's how life is though. Repeating stories and lessons that apply over and over again.

"Let those who love the LORD hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.” - Psalms 97:10
