Very First Post!

So... I started a blog today! (yay!) I'm pretty excited about it. I hope to use this to give people a small window into my life- my little happenings, my thoughts, what God's teaching me, pictures and updates, etc. are what I intend to randomly post here. I have no illusions about it being terribly organized or regular, but I do hope I keep up with it fairly well. I'm thinking a post every week or so. (Probably less whenever I'm studying for tests and exams...)

I guess the big thing on my mind right now is getting back to school this fall. I'm excited about seeing my friends at school again (I've missed them a LOT this summer!), and starting my major courses. I can't wait to get into education classes... I'm just SO pumped to get into all this teaching stuff! I also am very excited about meeting my roommate. I don't know who she is yet, but I've requested an international roommate, and I'm looking forward to the opportunities there. I really hope to get a chance to welcome her to the US, to befriend her, love on her, and share my faith with her. That would be a really big prayer request in my life right now, actually; for God just to prepare my roommate and I for eachother, and to bless that relationship. And I would like to echo that prayer request for my roommate from last year, who will be potlucking as well. For anyone who reads this and prays, thank you!

Although I am really looking forward to being back at school, I am sad about the summer ending. There are two things in particular that I'm sad about leaving: 1- My summer Bible study. I've been completely blessed by these three Godly women for the past 5-6 weeks, and I will definitely miss our weekly time together. In part, that's actually the purpose of this blog. I hope to keep in touch with them somehow once the fall season starts, and maybe this will help. 2- I've been able to re-connect with some of my best friends this summer, and 2-3 months is simply not long enough to make up for a year of being apart.

In any case, I believe that's all I have to say for now. I don't want to just ramble aimlessly for the sake of filling up space on the internet. If any of my family or friends actually read this, thank you! adios por ahora! (goodbye for now!)
