There are so many new things that literally the first title i thought of for this post was “Things” but that was stupid so I’m just leaving it titleless.
- Living in a city! I love it right now. I think that wherever I am I will always miss parts of things where I am not (i.e., I miss mountains and the country, but while I’m there I miss being able to walk everywhere and I’m really enjoying all of the things I get to do right now). I love living with some of my favorite people on earth and i love that so much of my family is up here, too.
- I’m taking a class on community engagement and leadership and meeting a lot of really “important” people and listening to speakers talk about leadership. I don’t know how i feel about it, truly. I’m thinking a lot about my values (as opposed to my beliefs) and trying to figure out what they look like lived out. It’s hard, because a lot of times its easy to be like, oh, i’m a Christian, this is my value set, but what does that look like LIVED? and how do those things translate? and i’m realizing that people who don’t see their leadership in whatever sphere they are in as a service really bother me. something i believe: to lead is to serve and it is a big responsibility. I’m still processing so we’ll see what comes out later.
- i like a boy and he likes me and it is wonderful and happy and i’m disgustingly happy all of the time which is such a break from how i felt over the past semester (not that i was terribly unhappy always there was just a lot of really sad things in life) and like, okay i’m happy about where i am and the people i’m with, too, but this is just really great.
SO like, i guess that’s about it. for right now.
