Sophomore year

I can honestly say that I'm a terrible blogger and I really had no intention of posting maybe ever again. However, I've been reading other people's blogs and it inspired me to maybe start this thing back up again.

Freshman year and summer came and went crazy quick. Now I'm back in Arkansas about a month into my sophomore year of college! This year is already proving to be pretty insane. Along with taking 15 hours of classes I'm also the activities committee head in my sorority. Between school, Phi Lamb (my sorority), friends, and occasionally babysitting I stay very busy. I like being busy though, it's a definite change from last year and I think that's why I'm already enjoying school so much.

This semester I'm finally getting to take a few more education classes. Some of them aren't the most interesting classes, but I love them. I love getting to learn about things that I can actually apply in my future classroom one day. This spring I have to apply to the Childhood Education program and then the real work begins. Right now I'm still taking all of my core classes so it's not all education classes, but that's okay. At least I'm done with science.....well the hard stuff. I still have two science classes left, but they're both education based.

I'm so excited to see what God has in store for me this year. He has already been faithful and revealed Himself in so many exciting ways.

I know this isn't the best first blog after my super long hiatus, but you have to start somewhere right?

New year, New decade :)

Happy 2010 everyone!

I don't know about anyone else, but I love January. I could do without the cold it always seems to bring with it, but other than that I'm a fan. My love of January comes from the fact that it brings us a whole new year. I know we don't need a new year to start over, but somehow it feels like I'm given a clean slate. 2009 was an okay year in retrospect, but I have a feeling that 2010 is going to be that much better.

I usually don't make resolutions, but this year I figured why not? This year I would really like to journal more and make better grades. But also I would like to live more like Christ. So often I get caught up in the ways of the world which is so easy to do. But, as Christians we're called to live a life of being set apart and it's something I want to strive for. I'm not really sure what shape or form that will take but we'll see.

This is short, but I figured maybe this year I can also start blogging more :)
