My Senior Year

“A woman’s heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him just to find her.” – Max Lucado

This year has flown by so fast!

In September, I bought my first car. A white Prius. Allll my friends love making fun of the fact that I own a Prius. So far it has been a great, reliable car and I am getting great gas mileage! I also started up my first official college class (on an actual campus ;-P). Spanish I was fun...

In November, I started working at La Vida Real, a retirement home. I learned to waitress in the dining room. It was a great experience since it was 5-star certified dining. It was easier to develop relationships with the people I served since I saw them 5 days a week. It was one of the hardest but best things I have done work wise.
I was also working at a small Italian restaurant and trying to do Awana as well making every night of my week full. This ended up being exhausting. I was working nearly full time while trying to have a social life and college classes and senior stuff all in one. It was crazy...

This semester, I took an introduction to business class online and continued with Spanish II. Spanish this semester has been a much better experience. I ended up quitting the Italian restaurant job which gave me one much-needed night off. Thankfully, my school load has been decently light. I finished Awana and received my citation. I also took a leave of absence from La Vida Real this month (May). This way I can enjoy the rest of my senior year and travel this summer (more on that later).

So that summarizes the past 9ish months....

Sadly, this year has not shown as much of a growth in my relationship with the Lord has I would have hoped. The quote I posted at the top is my senior quote for the yearbook. That is my desire. My desire is to be so completely surrendered to the Lord and walking in His ways while trusting Him to work out all my desires. I do not believe I am ready to be in a relationship with a young man yet because my relationship with the Lord is not in a strong, mature place. I hope by the end of this summer, I will be closer to Him and fully trusting in Him for everything in my life.

Thank you for reading. :-)


And... I'm back!

Wow... I was looking at my last post and realized it has been so long since I have posted on this blog... I have been busy! Since my life may be slowing down just a little for the time being, I will try to be posting a little more often. :-)
