It’s rather embarrassing I haven’t posted anything in over a month! Although, it’s a clear reflection that the past month has been non-stop with business. My timeline begins with moving into my apartment with my four wonderful roommates, then enduring two full weeks packed with 9-5 training for new housing grad assistants. After grad training, I immediately started training my staff and working my GA position in Preston. All the in between is made up of ACE training, move-in, SPA events and Lifetime movie watching. Haha. Needless to say, I have been very distracted with life and not entirely focused on the one thing that brings me peace; writing. Tonight, I am writing to clear my thoughts and break the one month ice of not blogging. 🙂
To start things off, I would like to give a shout out to my amazing new roommates (Kels, Chanda Rae, Supapa, Gilly). Previous living situations caused me to lose hope in co-habitation with girls. Haha… But these girls restored my lost hope. We are all very different. We all have different thoughts, ideas, feelings, personalities and backgrounds, but for some reason we all balance each other out. For reasons I’m unaware, our personalities just sync. Since we ‘ve moved in, I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard for so long in my entire life. We’ve been here less than a month and we have an entire wall covered with the funniest most off the wall quotes spoken by our very beings. Supapa encompasses every bit of diversity you could imagine. I am still trying to translate her personality to English. lol. Chanda Rae is the calm before the storm. When she’s in the room you just feel this overwhelming sense of calm, but beware of her conduct face. She’ll make you feel like you’re in the middle of a storm if you don’t watch out! Then you’ve got Kels, also known as Kelster. This girl’s laugh is one of a kind. You can’t help but want to make her laugh just so you can hear that chuckle. lol. Last but not least, there is Gilly, formerly known as Jillian. Haha. She’s just a cute little doll you want to keep in your pocket. She’s got a heart bigger than her body. I feel like I’ve known them much longer than just a couple months, and I am extremely thankful God has brought them into my life. 🙂
I am anxious for what this academic year will bring. Thus far, this entire year has been a year of firsts, but firsts can sometimes be overwhelming. Graduate school is a first for my family and enduring this next phase in my life is rather nerve-wracking. I am undeniably excited, but I hope my eagerness doesn’t result with my head in the sand. I want to make the absolute most of my experience here at Carolina, but I don’t want to lose my mind in the process. I need challenges with support and disappointments with learned lessons. And I pray that God will be by side through those challenges and learned lessons… He’s gotten me this far. 🙂
Anyways, this post is just me rambling really. It’s late and I’m exhausted, but I miss my blog. 😦 I will be sure to post soon with something more interesting and upbeat! Until then, have a great week and remember to love.
**Note to my best friend, Sarah G, I miss you. I am sorry we haven’t been able to catch up. I know you have been equally as busy. Just know, I haven’t forgotten about you! You’re still in thoughts and prayers always. 🙂 Talk soon. Love you!**
