Well. I'll say it. I don't want to leave Tennesee! My time here has been amazing and looking ahead and realizing that we only have 2 weeks and 2 days left makes me cry. Not really, but then it sounds more dramatic. I definitely will not miss working at Dollywood's Splash Country, let me just say that ha. Standing in my food shop serving grilled chicken and tortillas and working the cash register has been rough. Trying to keep up a cheery, servant attitude amongst complaining guests is very hard to do. But I've loved meeting other kids from different Christian groups from around the country who are also working at Dollywood doing similar programs as me, such as the Navigators and Campus Outreach. It's cool to see God working around the world even though it should be obvious that He does that! For my friends here at D Focus it's gonna be hard. There's something about gathering for 10 weeks and doing the same bible study, all having difficult jobs, and living together that makes you just bond so quickly. We sometimes share our testimonies with one another and when you do that you have to be really vulnerable! And being vulnerable with one another allows for another level of friendship, I feel. So in 2 weeks and 2 days i'll be back in Virignia, leaving this lovely land of rednecks, touristy attractions, smokey mountains and Dollywood. Here's to working my a off and making money, having good times with friends, and growing with Jeezus.
