100 Days

31 Jan

every student dreams of the day where they’ll walk across the stage and finally have their degree. after all, that’s what college is about.

on Friday, the seniors at my college celebrated the official beginning of their graduation countdown. the annual “100 Days” celebration was filled with the excitement of the next chapter in  a bunch of people’s lives.

but, with their excitement came a mix of emotions for me as well. soon, they’ll be alumni, and I’ll be a senior. it doesn’t seem like three years ago that I started school. I’ve always heard that junior year is the most stressful, and I can see why. I love the idea of graduation and having my degree, but I’m also scared about what and where I’ll be after college. these years have FLOWN by, so I know my senior year will come & go.

its one of those bittersweet situations. I cannot wait to be the upper, upper classmen, and on the verge of the rest of my life. but at the same time, I’m not quite sure if I’m ready for it all. am I really ready to be a real-life grown up?

I’m not sure. I just hope where ever I am, I’m happy. but, I won’t stress too much.

I have 460 days to figure it out.

day 28

29 Jan

at the beginning of the year, I didn’t make a long list of resolutions. just 2. number 1 was to read the Bible every day. if I followed a plan from YouVersion, I’d have read the whole Bible by the end of the year.

I took my plan to twitter and had a few friends join with me on my journey. it was easy, I would read about five or six short entries a day, some from the old testament, and some from the new. the first seven or eight days went by without a hitch.

and then, I got stuck. I was back at school, and the reading every night before bed stopped. so, I decided to do more of the reading on my phone—that way, I could read the Bible on the go. this worked for awhile too.

but now, as I sit here on the 28th day of the year, it’s been over a week since I’d read anything from the Bible.

it takes 21 days to make something a habit. I haven’t done a consecutive 21 days. not even close. as of today, I’m 10 days behind. but, I’m starting again. fresh.

if you’d like to join me on my journey, I’ll post the readings for the week every Sunday.

“what should I write about?”

I asked the question to a few of my friends and assoiciates when I told them I wanted to start a blog.

“write stories.”  “write about the news.”  “write about the world.”  “write about entertainment.”  “just write.”

they made it seem…easy. as if everyday, or once a week (or how ever often I decide to write in this) I could come up with profound thoughts that could help or entertain someone. it won’t be easy, but I know I can do it.

So that’s what I’ll do, “just write.” About whatever crosses my mind or catches my attention. I will [try to] keep my thoughts organized.
