And a year later, she writes.
This is actually a pretty tough post. Throughout college my views changed dramatically. While I’ve always considered myself a Christian, my beliefs have undergone a massive change from legalistic to liberal to somewhere in between.
I suppose I was raised what some might call Sabatarian, but I always called “non-denominational” so as to not spark conversation. Now, I’ll talk openly about my religious beliefs and what has changed for me.
Junior year of college was a toughie. I was reading my Bible daily and felt like Satan was attacking me. I was on my first Departmental Probation for failing a couple courses the summer before, but was blessed to make it though that Fall semester with a 3.28 GPA. I can’t even tell you how many times I got down on my knees, eyes full of tears, praying to God to get me through that semester. And He did.
While I would say religion is important because we, as humans, need to have relationships, I believe that a relationship with Christ is so much more than just a religion
I could go on, but for the sake of this blog entry being short, that’s all for now.
Just a little bit late.
My view on drugs and alcohol.
I can’t say I’ve had much experience with drugs other than Advil and Aleve or the occasional prescription antibiotic. That’s all I have to say about that.
Alcohol isn’t that exciting of a concept either now that I’m 21. It’s nice every once and awhile. I was pretty excited about turning 21, but it’s been almost 2 months and well, it’s expensive. I have better things to spend my money on.
Sorry about that not so exciting blog post. There’s a reason I don’t blog anymore.
Everybody who knows me in real life is well aware of this fact. But I guess my blogging world, however small it’s gotten, might be wondering.
I graduated college, WHOOPIE! and am now working at an undisclosed location with an undisclosed number of children. They’re fun. I love my job. They’re happy, they’re sad, they’re happy again. Total balls of energy. Thus my blogging has deteriorated.
Sorry about that.
And for anyone left out there, can y’all please pray for my family? 3 of my cousins are battling cancer right now, and prayers are always ALWAYS awesome.
About 4 years ago, I was a 16 year old kid getting ready to graduate from high school.
I danced at Harry’s and the Hall, I pond hopped, I went grocery shopping at HEB at midnight, I’ve been kissed at Midnight Yell by a member of the corps, I walked around campus during E Walk and Elephant Walk, I went to Fish Camp, I played football after a hurricane, I went to class, I cried in a professors office, I changed my major 3 times, I was part of the 12th Man, I traveled to Waco and Austin to BTHO Baylor and t.u., I carved my name on a table at the Chicken, I went to Taco C after a football game, I went to Fuego, I played intramurals, I went to Ring Dance, I got my Aggie Ring, I accumulated 138 college credits.
Tomorrow, I’ll be a 20 year old woman graduating from college.
Ten years… that’s a long time for now. In fact, I’ll be 26 days away from turning 31. So not only will I be old, I’ll be over 30. Joy.
I guess I hope to either be teaching and coaching or doing something will the school system. This summer I’m working on getting certified, and after that hopefully getting my master’s in either education or administration. Something like that, anyway.
The ride home on Monday I got passed by a sheriff and was reminded of scream 4. I kind of want to marry a cop. I don’t really know why. Somehow that all got connected in my head.
Oh, and hopefully I’ll have a kid or two.
We shall see.
I’m single, if you didn’t know this. Normally, I hate being single but I’m actually really enjoying it right now. I get to hang out with my guy friends without worrying if my boyfriend is jealous. I get to do whatever I want, whenever I want. Not to say that I wouldn’t like being in a relationship, but I just haven’t found the right guy.
I thought I had, but that’s a long story.
So anyways, I get to focus on my school work and graduate and go to work with the real people. Well, not exactly. I’m going to be a summer camp counselor while working on getting my teaching certificate. Then, the REAL fun starts.
After playing 2 songs, it decides to tell me that I need to register for free and refuses to let me listen to more music without doing this. If it’s free, why must a register. Pandora, you make no sense. Especially since you are connected to my Facebook and that’s how you’re picking songs for me.
First, you play Jaron and the Long Road to Ruin, then you play The Fray. Both good, but how are they in any way connected? I mention nothing about The Fray on my Facebook page. Then you play Edwin McCain and then Granger Smith.
You baffle me, Pandora.
