Hey what's up blog friends! I feel like It's been freaking forever since I've sat down to chat. Life has not given me a chance to breathe for the past couple of weeks... It's been an emotional roller coaster:

I got wait listed at a college.
I got accepted at said college.
I got great scholarship from said college.
I'm going to said college next week am trying to fit two weeks of homework and activities into one week. Bless this mess, Jesus.
I got to do an interview yesterday about my accomplishments, but it's rather awkward. It felt impersonal, prideful, and a little bit like my worth could be summed up by the awards stashed in my closet.

I've been learning that life is not an end goal.
Life is not a specific status, a specific dollar amount, a specific emotion.
Life is not a linear line.
Life is more like this calculus equation.
Life is complicated, curvy, chaos.
Life is brilliant, beautiful, breathtaking.
Life is people.
Life is not college acceptance, college rejection, college in general.
Life is laughter.
Life is not fame, or even being well liked.
Life is eating pumpkin bars.
Life is not the sum of accomplishments.
Life is friends.
Life is laughing with friends when you're trying to study.
Life is laughing about getting lost with your mutually locationally challenged friend.
Life is Psalms.

Life is Jesus.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 | ESV

  1. I recently got a few college replies (1 wait list, 1 rejection) and since I've only applied to 3 colleges all in places my parents don't want me to go to, then that kind of makes my life easier. This was a really good post! I'm trying to remember life/happiness/your intelligence/ isn't based on university.
