Finally! Spring Break

1 Comment

The last few weeks have been rough for me here in Athens, but I’ve finally made it to Spring Break. It’s weird because this will be my last Spring Break…at least as a student…for a while. I should be out somewhere drinking myself stupid and tanning myself until I get malignant melanoma…BUT…I’ll be in Athens, working away.

So, what am I really up to these days? The short answer is trying to stay afloat. More specifically, that means: fulfilling requirements for graduation (tests, papers, etc), applying for jobs for next year, trying to work hard and save money for that transitional phase of life, and trying to enjoy the last bit of time that I’ll be in school for a while.

Life has been hard. It’s really been kicking my behind. I’ve been feeling kind of the way I felt right before I graduated from UNC. I know that I believe, but I’m not really sure why. It’s some sort of weird and inadequate, yet consistent faith. I’m not even sure if that makes sense, but it does in my mind…

I’m particularly grateful for people who have been helping me stay afloat. The encouragement, the love, and the prayers have been much needed and much more appreciated. I really think I have the best friends in the world and I’m grateful that God has blessed me with them.

So, here’s to making the last 62 days at UGA count, getting the job that God has for me, and being encouraged in the entire process…

Peace and Blessings!
