To the like 3-4 people who keep checking up on me even though I barely ever update this anymore…I think you deserve a little update. Im not entirely sure when I last posted so ill just do a short recap of the last few months. I was living with a friend and his family wall I finished up the end of my freshman year in college. And things weren’t going well, I discovered I have some Anxiety issues, like I knew I had a little bit from my dad but I guess it was a little worse than I thought…so I went and got counseling, best decision of my life.
My counselor (we will call him Dan) And I worked through many things, some were a huge struggle others just took on faith and God worked through the rest, anyway in the midst of this I moved into an apt with my cousin and everything kinda fell into place a little too perfectly.
On my fathers birthday we were having a little party for him and I got a text from my churches child pastor, keep in mind I work every Sunday I haven’t been to church in over a year I haven’t even met this man. He asked me to be a counselor for the kids…the very next day. I thought it sounded like fun so I jumped at the chance and I was right! On about the third day during worship I asked God to show me what to do next, where to go with my life. What he told wasn’t an answer Just more of a statement. he told me that I was destined for great things….something he has told me before…but this still gave me hope. So I returned home knowing that there was greatness in my future…not really knowing what to do next though.
And so one night I was chatting with a friend of mine who recently moved to Washington state and I told her how I was starting to feel trapped and that I wanted to move but I didn’t know how to do it or even where and she told me that I really need to get out and just go to any college. But just leave no matter what.
next day I started applying to colleges any college and for the first time ever I considered private school…went and visited a few and decided north central was right for me. So in a few months im moving to Minneapolis to study im excited to see whats in store for me there and hopefully being there I will have more time to update this more often
So once again ill try to keep up with this so its not just short updates of my life…maybe from time to time I ill be able to write some more thoughts and opinions….cuz im pretty sure that’s allot more fun…
