Growing up in Christmas

It’s been too long!

Standard

It feels so good to be back on my blog! It has been way too long. My schedule has been crazy busy and a little depressing, so I haven’t had the time to post anything.

There is only…7 class days left of the semester! What? How is it that time goes so slow but its over so fast? It just amazes me, honestly. It seems like I just moved all of my stuff into this teeny dorm room.

This semester has been the most challenging yet. But it has also been the most character-building. Challenges always strengthen my faith, and when I come out on the other side, all I can do is praise God and then wonder what I was so worried about. God is my rock, and I am so thankful for His presence in my life.

Last night was our last O Chem exam!! Whoop! And as far as I know, I don’t have to take the FINAL since I am not taking the class next semester!!! I don’t really know how that works BUT I am not going to question it! God knew that I would have a melt down if I had to take that monster…

I also cannot wait until Thanksgiving! I love seeing my family and catching up with them. I will miss getting together with my mom’s side of the family this year, but I will see all of them at Christmas in a month or so. (Ah, yay Christmas!!) I just had to bust out the Christmas music a couple weeks back, I couldn’t wait any longer! My roommate is one of those people who is anti-Christmas until after Thanksgiving because she feels like it gets forgotten, and I agree with that. However, outside of hymns, Thanksgiving doesn’t really have its own music genre so they gave me no choice but to pre-game and listen to Christmas music a month early.

And since it is Thanksgiving, I feel like I need to recognize some of the things that I am so blessed to have in my life. 1) I have a fabulous family. Never have I ever felt like I couldn’t go home or tell them anything. They support me in everything that I do and love me unconditionally. 2) My bible study group! I joined a group of college girls my age and we all meet off campus at a recent graduate’s house. We have dinner and then study the bible or study a topic that we all have in common. Because of this group, I have made new friends and I am a part of a new community. We always have so much fun and I hope that its something that we can keep doing.

I have a lot of other things that I am thankful for, but I don’t know if this blog page will let me write that much…

As far as recipes go, I got nothin’. I have been pinning a lot though, so be ready for some once Christmas break begins. Cooking is how I occupy myself, I’m not very good at being bored.

So I am in the last stretch! See ya on the other side 🙂
