I feel like my brain has been put into hyperdrive. I’m constantly learning, trying to comprehend new ideas, analyzing works of poetry or rhetoric or the words of those around me. This period of time is requiring my unending attention and devotion more than any chapter of my life before.
But I want to slow down,
I want to watch the sunset or
lay in the grass and look at the stars.
I want to connect more deeply with the hundreds of people I’ve met, but it takes time.
Last week seemed like it would beat me, but I faced it head on and made it out mostly unscathed. Hard work is quite fulfilling; the feeling after finishing a twelve page paper or a tough exam is great. At the same time, I’m trying to focus on working for God and not for others or a grade.
Choir has been such a pleasant experience so far. Everyone I’ve met is welcoming and friendly, and singing in a group gives me such a joy. Now I find myself singing even more than I have before. There’s always a melody playing through my mind. Our first concert is October 26th at 2pm; if you’re in the Nashville area, come check us out! 😀
Next weekend is Cru Fall Getaway! I’m really excited for what God has in store. The leaders at Cru are very supportive and Gospel-centered. I’ve made many good friends already from Cru as well. This Saturday I went to the Henderson’s house and it was great to get out of the college bubble for a bit. (:
I enjoy hearing from friends and family across the world! It is such a blessing that across the vast distances and between busy schedules we can still stay connected.
