More About Me

1 Comment

Part of the reason that I love to spend time alone, is because I enjoy my own thoughts.  Some of these I share with others, some I don’t; and of course, there are reasons for that.  However, in the last couple of days, I’ve realized some things about me that I’m willing to share:

  1. I wish I could have a job that would allow me to talk with my friends every day.
  2. Life is about being thankful.  Being thankful leads to happiness.
  3. I am terrified that I may one day run into the end of the internet.
  4. Television, though appreciated, is overrated.
  5. I don’t regret things that at one point, made me happy.  I take the lessons, accept the fact that I have grown from the experience, and move on.
  6. I’m on a mission to have the highest quality of life possible- surrounded by people who love me, and who are also pursuing their purpose and their dreams with the same intensity that I am.
  7. Cereal and cupcakes are a part of my balanced diet when on vacation.  I generally maintain a kosher diet while I’m at work, so vacations are okay for splurges.
  8. North Carolina basketball is the stuff that dreams are made of.  Seriously.
  9. I’m generally bad at keeping in touch with people because I hate feeling like the burden of keeping in touch should be mine.  At the same time, if it’s a burden, perhaps I shouldn’t keep in touch with you anyhow.
  10. I’m more organized inwardly than outwardly.  I partially think that if I could organize as well outwardly as I do inwardly, I would be insanely OCD.
  11. After being pretty far away from my family for the last 4 years, there’s a part of me that wants to be home.
  12. I think that I would be an awesome mother and wife- partially because I desire to, but moreso because I see wonderful examples of Christan wives and mothers who inspire me daily.
  13. I constantly remind myself that who I am is not limited to my occupation.
  14. I think that God is going to allow me to live a long, full life; mostly because of His favor, grace, and mercy; but also because He has given me so many dreams.
  15. While I reflect on my times at UNC with great joy because of the people I met, I often feel that my time at UGA was a bit isolating and more introspective.  At the same time, I experienced great personal growth while at UGA, which made it worthwhile.  I have yet to determine how I feel about my time in Florida, other than it’s made me realize that I’m a lot stronger than I thought.

God-chaser. NC native, now planted in Jacksonville, FL. Happily married to a handsome church-planting pastor. I am easily excited by Jesus, education, cupcakes, Moleskine notebooks, and Pepsi. Overwhelmed by God's amazing grace, undeserving of His love and mercy.

One thought on “More About Me

  1. It’s inspires me that you have the courage to talk about your innermost thoughts on the internet. I really like #2; I’m going to remember that for a long time. I think it should be a famous quote.
