Wake Up

So it's summer and It's been a while since the last blog post. And since that time in the middle of April I have completed my second year in College. It's a weird feeling. One neither of excitement nor anticipation, but more a feeling of reflection and contemplation. A lot of my good friends are leaving the school I love so much and it's my time to be the upperclassmen that some look up to [hopefully]. It's my time to create that community we all love so much and just be there. I hate being sentimental and melancholy, but those things just come, they do.

So for my summer I'm doing something i've never even come close to doing ever before. I'll be going to Tennessee for 2 1/2 months, working at the Dollywood theme park, and in my free time i'll be in bible studies, hanging with other kids from around the country, and going through a discipleship program. Sounds like fun, eh? I hope so. Frankly I don't want to go. I'm comfortable doing nothing around the house, and hanging out with friends occasionally, making a leisure trip to Richmond or Fredericksburg or someplace of the like. I'm going to miss everyone so much. So, i've looked at the situation and then looked at who I am. I love to travel (so, so much] and it seems i've forgotten this! It'll just be another opportunity for that right? Of course it will--and probably so much more. I really do want to be excited about what's to come, i do! So I hope that maybe some prayer will be thrown my way, from whomever, i'll take it.

Alright I have to go cut the grass now, sorry for the ramblings but I hope you've enjoyed them nonetheless.
