So, everybody has seen this cute video of Nemo! He gets so excited about his first day of school! I have always been the same way! Call me a nerd or whatever, but I love going shopping for new school supplies, new clothes, and getting my backpack all organized with everything I need for my day. It’s such a relief to get ready in the morning with everything all packed up and ready to go! I just love feelings of accomplishment like that, I guess. It’s good to be back here on the Holy Hill. It is where I feel most at home, except for at my own house obviously. And if there is anybody out there reading this, please don’t get mad that I haven’t blogged in like three weeks. I should have been better about it, for sure. I just was so busy with the holidays and family and friends and work and SLEEP. But now I am back! Sorry you had to miss me
Anyway, this semester is a new start for me in many ways. I am officially an academic junior, after just three semesters of college. IT’S A NEW YEAR! I wrote “2012″ on my papers today, twice…. And biggest of all, I CHANGED MY MAJOR OFFICIALLY TODAY IN ACADEMIC RECORDS! I was a Biology/Pre-Physician Assistant major, but after much prayer, thought, and encouragement from spiritual and academic advisors, I have decided to switch to Psychology. It’s been on my heart since I went to Passion Conferencein Atlanta in January of 2012, where I learned that there are still millions of people in slavery today. We heard from victims of this slavery and people that are rallying and advocating for them. I want to be one of these people. I want to see justice in our world, and want to be a part of making that happen. That’s my goal for 2013. Not to eat better or get in shape or do devotions more or keep my room clean, which are all good things that I want to do; but above all, I want to listen to God and act upon His will for my life. I know I’m barely twenty years old and am still figuring out His will every single day, but more than anything, I just want to please Him. I want to become the person He created me to be, and I believe that part of that is helping those gain a voice that cannot speak for themselves.
These people are people, made in God’s very own image. Not just victims, and definitely not anybody’s property. And definitely not just a statistic. So we need to CHANGE the statistic. That’s what I wanna do, for the rest of my life.
Happy first day back at school! I pray that 2013 is a life-changing year for everybody!
