Full of Life

Oh, how times flies. I know I haven't posted on the blog in a while and let me tell you, it has been hectic throughout the past semester, sometimes it even felt like there was no time to think! After taking 18 credits last semester and calling my dad at least once a month telling him that I would need to drop a class because I was going crazy, I have, thankfully, come to a semester that is not so strenuous. Whew! Good news though, I made it through the fall semester (with all 18 credits) and passed every class, and a decent GPA at that. It was definitely a learning experience for me, and although I am so happy that it is behind me, I've definitely learned to stay on top of things and have gained an appreciation for learning. Now you know what has kept me held up since the summer! 

Anyways, this semester is in full swing. After taking a winter class, I am only taking 15 credits this spring, hopefully this semester won't be as stressful as the last and that this semester will continue to teach me the important things in life, even if it doesn't have anything to do with school. In addition to school, I am involved in the Big Sibling Program, Young Life College, and I lead Young Life at a high school in Farmville. The next question I am asking myself is - what else can I get involved in? Now, I love my lazy time, oh I do. However, I feel I have been called to do something else where I can make a difference in this community. I haven't quite figured it out yet, but I'm starting the search. 

Many times this week I have been asked the question, "How do you want to be remembered?" I have pondered the question and have finally come up with an answer - full of life. One night I received one of the best compliments I could have ever received, that I was "full of life", and I haven't stopped thinking about it since. How amazing would it be to leave the legacy such as "full of life"?  Although, this is what I was described as, that is not quite what I feel myself. Now, I'm not saying I am depressed either, I am just saying that I have not quite gotten to the point in my life where I can say that I feel full of life. BUT that's the beauty of the journey, and I hope to talk about it on the blog. Hopefully, this time I will stay committed to writing about it.
